“Consistantly Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My wife and I have been going to Arties for well over 20 years. We love many menu items but we really love the consistantly great food prep and service. We have never had a bad experience at Arties! Their Salmon plank dinner is just fabulous and the accompanying sauce is wonderful. Their Caeser salad is one of the best around. Prime Rib, ribs, ribeye steaks, soup and side dishes are the best. And, it is always the best. You never go and get bad service, a tough or tasteless steak or a bad salad. They must really work hard on being consistant and it shows. Even our 8 year old granddaughter finds Arties to be her favorite.

“Lived up to prior reviews!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisors and was impressed by the reviews. We were a party of three and we all felt the food was well-prepared and tasty. The drink service could have been better. Coffee refills were slow and a mixed drink that was ordered did not arrive until we asked another waiter, then it took another ten minutes. All in all though, the food was terrific. Would definitely eat there again.

“Go For the Crab Cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Overall a great experience, good service and food. The crab cakes are fantastic and are actually large enough to split. Order a chopped salad and split the cakes. Great meal. Call ahead and they will put you on the list.

“my favorite spot in Fairfax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Be prepared for a wait but it is worth it. You can smell the food cooking on your way. I have never had anything there that I wouldn't have again and the rolls from Best Buns-YUM!! Can be pricey but worth every penny. Also, nice wine list.

The menu has a good variety and is consistently good. I have enjoyed their brunch for years. The staff also makes dining there a pleasure.
