Plenty of parking, even have complimentary valet parking. Wine was good but a glass is small and expensive (not a good combo). Service was very good. Salmon portion was well prepared and very large, but although the steak was good sized, it just lacked the flavor you expect at this price point. Better choices abound in the area.

Was very disappointed in our dinner. Management was not obliging. Steak was not done as it should be.

Everything here was executed as a high end steak house should. Service was great, and the steaks were impeccable.

This particular restaurant is a staple for us. Why? Because the food is outstanding, the service is unbeatable, and the atmosphere is warm and soothing. The managers interact with the diners sufficiently to ensure everything is perfect and they remember the diners. When you return they greet you with remarkable recognition. I do not believe it is possible to have... More

This is one over hyped, over priced and under achieved place. There are far better Steak houses in the area. Might be clean, but the steak is no better then a Ponderousa and the staff is unfriendly.Was my first visit to a Ruth Chris and it will be my last.

I always enjoy a good steak. Thus far, Ruth has not disappointed. The wine selection is excellent. Good atmosphere. Our server was too artificial. Though she was pleasant, her mannerisms are not those one would expect in a top notch restaurant. A reminder to those visiting RCSH .. this is a steak house. Do not hold your breath and expect...

We went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate two birthdays and could not be more pleased with the food and the service. We haven't been to this location for a few years and were pleased to find that it is still a top flight restaurant. The steaks were superb, the wine list was terrific and the service was top notch.

I admit, my steaks have to be kissed by flame to suit me. These steaks are broiled. Big loss of flavor. Also as in so many high priced steak places, not much imagination put into the sides.

I recently had holiday dinner with some friends here. What can I say, other than, excellent meal, drinks and service. I've never had a bad service at a RCSH. If you want to enjoy a good meal, nice atmosphere; RCSH is an excellent option. Keep in mind, RCSH is not Golden Corral nor Outback, bring your wallet. :)

My wife and I recently visited Ruth's midweek (Wednesday 630 ish) in Fairfax - as we often do sat in the bar area for some wine etc. The service in the Bar area has continued to decline to the point of laughable.
