Have been here before a number of times and had a great experience....arrived tonight with a client, quickly seated.....client knows wines, I don't wines at all....he orders a great bottle and took the waiter a good 10 mins to come back and say he didn't have that bottle, client orders another bottle and the wine comes, he tastes it and...

Real nice place with a big number of steaks. All of us very satisfied. Tender and tasty. Extra plus to the garlic mashed potatoes.

Wonderful ambiance, professional staff, extensive wine cellar, phenomenal aged steaks, and the family style sides of garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were perfect.

I think of Ray's every time I want the best steak or burger in town. It never disappoints. It also provides great service at reasonable prices

Every steak I've ever had here has been excellent. I'm not sure about the creamed spinach because I've never tried it, but the mashed potatoes are also good. We make it a mission to come here every time I'm in town.

I've been to Ray's a couple of times over the past few years, and, since I am a carnivore, that probably tells you what you need to know about the steaks at Ray's. They are very good - well seasoned, and cooked to your specification. On our last visit, we shared the "cowboy steak" which is a 28 oz on... More

I love this place and really SHOULD come here more often! One of my dear nephews was in town for the weekend. He's a "poor" college student, so who knows what usually has to eat! Rays The Steaks has brilliant steaks, perfectly cooked to temperature. The really unusual part, is the steaks also come with all you want mashed potatoes... More

We were in a group of eight for dinner and were promptly seated and well cared for during the meal. Steaks are a must here. Plan on this venue when in the area!

This is quite a dining experience! Comfortable, relaxed atmosphere and steaks that cover an entire plate on their own. Sides are an after thought here, the steak is clearly the main event and deservedly so. The steaks here are the finest quality and preparation, a delight to all of the senses. If you do find yourself with room for dessert... More

Have been trying the competition since last dining at Ray's the Steaks and what I discovered is that for its prices, the no-frills Ray's is still one of the very best steak houses in the Northern Virginia/Wash DC area. As they say, all the effort and mo9ney is put in the meat here not that the sides aren't good. The... More
