Food was delicious, much better than Morton's or Ruth's Chris. I'm normally not a steakhouse visitor because I feel that most are overpriced, but I would definitely visit here again.

The comment is really good here.so I put this place to must go in our trip @DC. The steak was really big from the picture. We ordered onion soup ,medium-well "FILET MIGNON" and a classic well-down "HANGER STEAK " . Soup was tasty.Filet was really small and the classic was 1.5 strip,not worth the price. Both steak was burned,the filet overcook like well down.

Have been going to Ray's since it was the hole-in-the-wall place that is now occupied by Ray's Hellburger - but now that they have opened a third (and really a fourth) Ray's restaurant within a block of each other, one has to ask: why just courthouse??? Wish it was more available and within walking distance of - say Clarendon or Ballston ... should be one on every Orange-line Metro stop in N VA. Ray's is the best steak / hamburger place around - but should make itself more accessible

This is the new standard for steaks in the DC area. Service is good, food is great. Go, you'll like it.

It's not just about the food. It's also about the service. Here's a place that did right; the soup was tepid, easily replaced. The rib eye, which was from an end cut, was tough and bordered on medium. When the floor manager asked how our entrees were, I asked her to identify the cut of meat on my plate. She said, either a New York strip or the end cut of the rib eye. So she understood and offered to get a center cut rib eye and in the meantime brought an extra plate so that the two of us could share the new york strip while they cooked the new rib eye. And , then (!), they comped us a piece of key lime pie as an apology (which we took to go). We'll go back. Both for the food and for the service (and my husband left a 25% tip!).
