there were four of us on a monday night and although the restaurant was busy, the host and the servers were friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. the tables are not close together so we were able to carry on quiet conversation and could not hear our neighbors. my husband & i had not been there before and the waitress helped...

I dined at Ray's the Steaks last weekend and had a Terrible Dining Experience. The Service was listless and inattentive at best and progressed down from there. Two of the Four main courses were wrong and had to be returned to the kitchen. Then the 4th waiter (the restaurant cycled us thru FOUR different servers for some reason during our... More

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

Seriously, these guys know steaks. It's becoming a place that I regularly visit for business and it naturally becomes pleasure.

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
