Had another good meal here last week. The portions were huge. The wine was good. The sides were unreal. The steak was done perfect. The real problem was that the building (not restaurant) fire alarm went off 10 minutes into our meal and didn't ever turn off (yes, for the next 90 minutes). Hard to believe. I was disappointed that the restaurant didn't accommodate us. Otherwise, a great meal, although quite expensive.

I ordered surf and turf, and the lobster was better than the steak. I wasn't expecting that. Great bar drinks.

Service was above average.

Ruth's Chris is predictably very good in all regards (THX CTB/MAB!!), unless you get a rogue wait staff or mad cow, I guess. The steak seems to be more "butter soaked" than I even remember from my last visit but that is so much part of their brand that if you don't want (a lot) of Sizzle, best to go somewhere else. The wine by the glass was a bit skimpy and some of the red selection seemed to have a very high tannin content, possibly evidenced by the "stuff" in the bottom of my glass.

The service and atmosphere was friendly and efficient.

I'd gladly go again but ask for less "Sizzle"...Sigh, I miss the Steakhouse Row in Chicago

Im from the UK and its really hard to find a good steakhouse anywhere let alone good steak (unless you want to pay silly prices) and I have been to Ruths about 4 times and every time the food is excellent and the service impeccable. Let's face it if the USA can't do steak well then who can?!

We love the one in Tysons Corner VA--it makes no difference what you order (crab cakes, shrimp, lobster, steak), the food is wonderful and the service is attentative. This is great for a business lunch or special occassion dinner.
