“Great service, mouthwatering steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just writing about this fine dining establishment is making my mouth water.
The superb quality of Ruth's Chris steaks is widely known, and honestly, the quality doesn't seem to vary despite the location of the restaurant. What puts the Fairfax place above its competitors is the level of service you can count on getting there. Regardless of how crowded it may be, diners are made to feel feel as though the table is theirs for the evening. Servers and staff make no effort to turn the table over quickly like so many other restaurants.
The service is wonderful and the steaks are like none you'll get east of the grasslands in Kansas.

“Best Steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Ruth Chris Steakhouse is simply the best. From the time you enter the restaurant, you are treated with dignity and respect and the staff demonstrates that they are happy you are there. I have dined at the Fairfax location several times and I've never had a bad experience. The meals are always great - steak cooked perfect every time; excellent wine menu; and the servers are all very professional, highly knowledgeable and customer focused. If you are celebrating a special event (anniversary, birthday, promotion, etc.) or just a special night out, Ruth Chris Steakhouse is the place to go. It is pricey but well worth it. You will be satisfied!

“the best beef and appetizers of all steak houses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Of all the steakhouses, this one is my favorite. You cannot go wrong with anything on the list, the wine selection is great as well The only fault is that it is loud, but that is not the restaurant's falt and sometimes they try to fit you on a smaller table and then expect everyone to be comfortable and ask for side dishes that do not fit at the table

“Expect the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

From the moment I was shown to your table, I couldn't help but feel great. The atmosphere is pretty much the best of the big chains. and as the night went on, the smile on my face got bigger and bigger. when my waiter (Seth) arrived, he informed my party that he would be taking very good care of us. He said it with such conviction, anything to the contrary was virtually impossible! He didn't let us down. From proper suggestions to presentation and actual caring attention, we WERE impressively taken care of. The food was excellent and cooked just as requested. The portions were quite large and my wife and I ended up sharing a steak. Counting the days I go back!

“Went to Ruth Chris”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

We went to Ruth Chris last week. Food was very average. Too much money for this kind of quality. The service was good. Flemings offers much better product.
