This place is done, go elsewhere. Had dinner last night at Rays the Steaks. It’s more of a low end, but not cheap, steak joint but without ambience. Went there years ago in the old location which provided a great dining experience, terrific to die...More

Ray's The Steaks manages to keep its steak prices reasonable, but the quality is very high. There's not a lot of ambiance here - the room is sparse. I don't even know if there is a bar. I had the Caesar salad for starters -...More

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.

Worst experience at any restaurant. Read this before you go. We had a 6pm reservation for 2 couples. The host (who is the owner, I guess) was unprofessional from the start, poorly dressed, long line, unorganized, the waiters apologizing for him. At 6pm, people with...More

Our party tried several different kinds of the strip steak, all were very good, nicely presented, cooked as ordered and arrived simultaneously. The sides were also very good, wine list comprehensive.

We have been a number of times to Ray's the Steaks, both at their old and new location. We live in Arlington so it's an easy night out when we occasionally are in the mood for a good steak. The menu has ample choices (some...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
