  • 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

  • Dress code
    GLluv2enjoygreatfood
    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.

    As usual my wife and I enjoyed an outstanding evening at Ruth Chris' in Baton Rouge. I say outstanding evening because saying outstanding dinner would not be near enough to describe the wonderful evening. The food, the wine, the service and the ambience were perfect for the celebration of our 17th wedding anniversary.

    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.

    Had or 33 anniversary there. It was outstanding. Our waiter Jesse was on que the entire time we were there. He was spot on with suggestions. Very dedicated to making sure we enjoyed our time spent there. Did I mention time. Oh it was great not being herded in fed and ticketed. We got to enjoy every bite and have meaningful conversation. And the food ho ho. Let's say they are number 1 in my book. I have dined all over the world. This experience with my wife was awesome. Ruth Chris don't change a thing. You'll have it all great food and a great great staff. It is obvious to me you care about me your customer. Thanks for the experience.

    We dine here pretty often, so yes we are regulars. When I made the reservation on Open Table I did not mention it was my husband's birthday the next day. After dinner, we ordered dessert, which we only do sometimes. Well when our waiter Sean brought out my husband's dessert, there was Happy Birthday written on the plate. Sean said, "Happy birthday man, I know it's close." Wow! This is why we keep coming back! Tricie

    I have eaten in most of the great steakhouses in America over 40 plus years of business travel. I have taken clients to restaurants that have been superb and many that were disappointing. Most feature prime steaks and lobster, but the steaks are the featured item that brings me into the restaurant. I have eaten in many Ruth Chris and as a whole are very good. I am of the opinion that the Baton Rouge location may very well be the best location of Ruth Chris in the country. I do know the service is beyond reproach, the choices are multiple and the steak I ate on Mother's Day was the best steak I've ever eaten anywhere. I would recommend the Baton Rouge Ruth Chris location to all lovers of great food and superior service anywhere.

    We dined at Ruth's Chris for Mother's Day and once again had a wonderful meal. As an appetizer, I highly recommend the Seared Ahi Tuna as it has a sauce like no other here in Baton Rouge. My petite filet was cooked to perfection, the sides plentiful and tasty and the Crème Brulee was delectable.
