Although restaurant seems to be loosing some of its cache, the steaks are the attraction. Center cut filet which is sliced in the kitchen was a far better choice than the standard filet. The bone in aged rib eyes are a real feast-not cheap.

This is a restaurant serving the most delichious steaks in the neighbourhood. Great service and good drinks. This is the place for real steak lovers. If you aren’t you’ll probably find something for you anyhow.

DC has many top-notch, high-end steak houses in formal posh settings. The Ray's concept is the same exceptional meats and sides served relaxed neighborhood bistro style. Go for the food. We feasted on these five star selections: Lobster Macaroni and Cheese Grilled Asparagus with Herb-Garlic...More

This is one of the more popular places to have steak in Northern VA. Frankly, it is one of the worst steak experiences I have ever had and I refuse to go back...ever. The prices are too high for what you get and the inability...More

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
