We decided to go out for a nice Christmas Dinner instead of cooking. We had a party of 8, and were put at a nice table in the back of the restaurant. Restaurant not very pretty- there are many more steak houses that have nicer decor. This one feels like a factory. So, several of us (some children and light... More

We had a group of nine, as we had done a dozen times in the past at various Ruths Chris including this one. Reservations made months in advance. As always, the food was the best in the city, from the Calimari, Crabtini, Shrimp Cocktails, Lobster Bisque to the New York Strip, Medallions of beef with shrinmp, Filtes and Ribeye followed...

We come here at least twice a year. Service and food this time around was as we've come to expect - excellent! We had a reservation and were seated promptly on arrival. Everything from appetizers (crabcake was our favorite) to desserts (banana cream pie) were delicious. Chef's special - Medallions with Shrimp, was indeed a very good recommendation.

Good experience overall. Extremely crowded for Friday HH. Considering the local choices, that's probably to be expected. The food is slightly better than average for a chain restaurant. The property lacks intimacy which you might expect from a upper-end steakhouse. Unfortunately, that the status quo for Nova. A better experience can be had at The Capital Grille in Tysons.

Ruth's Chris is the favored steakhouse in our family. While the Crystal City location is our favorite, the Fairfax location is more convenient for weekday dinning for us. It is generally as you would expect, but we find they don't always have the best consistency with their cooking temperatures and service. Sometimes it is just awesome, everything is medium-rare and... More

We eat here once a quarter or so, usually for special events. We went last week just because there is no better place for a steak. As usual the service was excellent and so was the steak, but... I ordered a special which included shrimp that were under-cooked. The baked potato was also under-cooked. This was the first time ever... More

Because of several health issues, we have found it easier to order to go! I know! Take out from a Steak joint? Well they have never failed me yet! Unfortunately the service has been off during our past dine in experiences. Menu is still very good.

Everything is as you would expect. Food is prepared to your liking, ambiance is great, service is top notch and wine list is extensive. It is expensive but I expected that when I went. We go here about once a month. Also, they have a wonderful Happy Hour!!

We had been to Ruth's Chris a lot and have always had good meals and service there, but this time it was different. The wait staff seemed preoccupied and not as outgoing as they have been in the past. My steak had a lot of fat in it and was not prepared as ordered. It took about ten mins to... More

I took Mamma Bear here as a Christmas present. I had never been to a Ruth's Chris before. Fabulous! The steaks are so tender they melt in your mouth. All the side dishes are done to perfection. The wait staff is constantly at your side being sure you are taken care of. Expensive? Yes. But well worth every cent spent.... More
