    To hear the words "Good Evening, my name is Stephanie and I will be taking care of you this evening." is to know that your dining experience will be in the very capable hands of a true professional. Her attention to detail, positive attitude and glowing smile make for an evening that is surely to be enjoyed and remembered. I had the pleasure of being served by Stephanie recently and she absolutely did not disappoint, as she delivered the first class service one has come to expect from Ruth's Chris Baton Rouge. Always the food was delicious and the atmosphere vibrant as it was an LSU Football weekend. Looking forward to going back very soon!

    This is most definitely in my top favorites. They are super friendly and EXTREMELY accommodating higher priced but higher quality Everything the food is always perfect and wait staff and host are always friendly. First time me and my husband went we were unaware of the type of restaurant it is and were very under-dressed but they welcomed us anyway. (I had on Jean shorts and a tshirt and flip-flops, I wouldn't recommend it) plus they have complimentary valet. I love love their calamari, steak, sea bass, salmon, asparagus w/hollandaise sauce, and their Creme brûlée is the best I've ever had. Fresh vanilla bean and fresh fruit on top.

    My wife and I try to go to Ruth's Chris a few times a year for special occasions. We are never disappointed with the food, staff and atmosphere. The wait staff is on the spot with making recommendations from their wine selection through their desserts and after dinner drinks. Their steaks are the best for special occasions, or if you just want to treat yourself.

    We celebrated our birthdays/anniversary on Saturday night and it was one of the best meals we've had in Baton Rouge. Our server, Brian, was very knowledgeable, friendly and helped make the whole experience even better. And since this isn't one of the corporate locations, they still hand carve their steaks every day from locally sourced, aged prime beef - the best that's available... Plus, not charging any corkage fee is a huge plus for people that have their own wine collection. We'll be back for sure!

    The T bone steak I eagerly consumed was the finest quality and cooked to perfection. It reminded me of the steaks I had as a boy in New York over 50 years ago. We were celebrating our nephew's birthday along with a visit to LSU. He was very impressed with the service as well as his dinner choices.

  • Great food, interior needs a update
    Soulblane
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    As always the food was wonderful; quite possibly the best-seasoned steak I've had at a higher-end restuarant. The interior, however, is in need up some remodeling and doesn't have the same atmosphere compared to Baton Rouge's other premium steakhouses. When you walk in the dining room is very dark but it doesnt feel romantic. There is one giant main seating area with two smaller private sections for groups in the back of the restaurant. The lack of partitions of any kind mean the noise level is fairly loud.

    The staff at Ruths' Chris in Baton Rouge would have to go out of their way just to try and give you bad service. It is always a joy to dine there. My wife and I have never had a bad experience. Brian was an excellent waiter. The steak is always perfect. They go out of their way to ensure you are treated well and dine in a fine manner. That's why it is our favorite

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    I love going to Ruth Chris and although the food and service was great I do have a complaint about the dress code. For one there doesn't seem to be one. It would be nice to see people (men) at the very least not wearing their shirt tails out, also not to see men wearing ragged out jeans. It seems to me that some people think that if your paying for an expensive meal you have the right to dress and wear what ever one wants. I am not one of those people and it offends me to see someone dress like crap while I'm eating. This is a high end restaurant and they need to have a dress code in place.

    Service was as exceptional as the food was. It was nice to be greeted by name and have all of the staff aware of the occasion we were celebrating w/o having to say a word beyond the note attached to my reservation. Our food was served within a reasonable amount of time and arrived at our table sizzling hot. My steak was cooked more than I'd prefer, and though I said it was fine, Margeaux insisted that she have another prepared for me. To top off the ocassion, Margeaux delivered a complimentary cheesecake custom designed with a message that read, "Congrats on your book deal!". My friend had never had such a great dinning expierience in her life.
