As you enter the restaurant, the decor immediately tells you - classy, high end, and great steak. As you look over the menu you'll see a great selection of appetizers, salads, seafood - but what catches your eye is the number and diversity of steak options. All beef is aged in house and depending on the cut of meat and... More

I try to visit whenever I'm in DC. Wonderful steaks that are cooked perfectly. Very fresh. Excellent service. Loved ease of booking reservations through TripAdvisor.

Nice atmosphere to dine. I enjoyed being with two friends. I had the special ribeye which wasn't special at all. The steak was thin and unflavorful. The cooks were challenged cooking a thin mediocre steak. When they tried to cook it warm and pink in the middle, they failed and I ate little of it. Staff was attentive but didn't... More

The amosphere was warm and inviting, the staff informative and professional, the glass of wine more than ample for a "house serving" but the steaks were incredible. All four of us ordered different items from a blue cheese topped strip, a filet with a mushroom wine and cream sauce to a steak with a peppery, piquant flavor but the star... More

My husband and I had dinner at Ray's on a Saturday evening. They do not accept reservations, but offer the option of first come/first served. We called with an approximate time of arrival but were delayed in getting there. We did have to wait about 1/2 hr to be seated. The restaurant is trendy with a modern interior. We ordered... More

This place has some of the best steak in town and at a steep discount from the douchey national chains. Every table gets skillets of creamed spinach and also mashed taters. All the classic cuts. But also more deal-priced butcher cut specials. And a phenomenal wine list that is priced below almost any other restaurant in town. The list was... More

Ray Landrum's steak house has the best meat, great sides, wonderful casual atmosphere, and a total cost that is half the big chains.

Ray's continues to be where Arlingtonians still go for a good steak dinner. The food is always prepared well and rarely disappoints.
