It was strange that now we are into summer that they don’t have a even a medium sized selection of white wine. We were left with only 3 options and the one that our waiter recommended was too acidic. One person’s steak was a little...More

Obama went there, (no big deal) BUT really the best steaks in town, Not an expensive looking place but the steaks outweigh the lack of ambiance of low end modern furniture

We went here with friends based on the good reviews. As soon as we walked in the door we were disappointed. The host and wait staff were not very friendly and the ambiance was terrible. The place seems run down. Old red carpet that looks...More

In town to visit. We all enjoyed a petite cut filet, either Oscar style or "Surf 'n Turf". The beef "melted" in your mouth. Sides of mashed potato and creamed spinach served family style were very generous portions. Definitely recommend the lobster mac 'n cheese....More

Visited after a long day managing an event. I would not say the staff are very attentive or friendly, but it’s really about the steaks. I added bone marrow to mine and it was the most amazing I have ever had. I enjoyed my steak...More

I had really liked Ray's in the past, especially for business dinners. Had a special business partner come into town and suggested we have dinner here. I told him about my previous experiences and he was eager to try it. What a disappointment!! The place...More

I'd gotten in the habit of visiting Ray's a number of times whenever I was in the DC/Arlington area for work. Initially (about nine years ago), the steaks were fantastic and the service was friendly and professional. I could get a twofer by a window...More

The evening we visited they did not offer live music. We did notice that the music wasn't too loud and made the dinning atmosphere even that much better for conversations.

Very Casual--Wore blue jeans and a golf shirt--I fit right in. There is a more formal area (still not formal--many people with slacks and shirt) and then a very informal place which I really like
