    It was our 44th wedding anniversary, I ordered lobster and when the server delivered it to the table I had her de-shell it for me....she had to use a spoon because the lobster was nothing but a mush....it should of never been put in front of me this way.....I had to get up and look for a server to come and pick it up......they asked what I wanted, told them I wanted a lobster....it came 15 minutes later cold and of course everyone in our party had already finished their steaks, so I had to eat my lobster alone and had cold vegetables to go with it.....there are no apologizes for a restaurant of this caliber......they had the nerve to charge me for that lobster experience,

    Table setting sparkling as was the service! Filet cooked to perfection as always, but my dinner companion would skip the lobster next go around. It was dry and without much flavor. The Crabtini appetizer on the other hand was fresh, cold and wonderful! Nice presentation of dark chocolate bark w/peach topped cheesecake for dessert.

    We were celebrating our grand daughter and boyfriend's birthday.We all ordered the crabtinee which is the best. Large chunks of crabmeat with a delicious sauce. Our grand daughter ordered Sea Bass which she said was very very good. Her boyfriend and my husband and I ordered steaks which was excellent. We also ate cream spinach, garlic mash potatoes and asparagus. We also had excellent red wine. LaCrema. Our grand daughter and boyfriend were served an excellent dessert compliments of Ruth Chris. My husband and I had Creme Brulet. It was a wonderful evening. The service was perfect. It is always a very special and pleasant evening when we go to Ruth Chris'.

    I have eaten the same meal at this Ruth's Chris at least three times now and every time it has been disappointing. The classic steak and lobster. While the filet its ok, the lobster is always very tough and overcooked. I thought it was just a one-off thing but it has happened every time so my recommendation is to order anything else. I will probably not order of their Ruth's Classics menu in the future. The main a lla carte items seem to be better prepared or at least prepared with some attention. Service was top-notch as expected.

    The food was outstanding. We ordered the Large Filet Medium which couldn't have been any better. Creamed Spinach and Shoestring Potatoes were also very good. We were too full to eat dessert but we have eaten their desserts in the past and they are always very good. Service is excellent.

    This establishment is terrible at keeping a reservation time or keeping tract of you for you reservation time. They like to send you to the bar and either forget about you or push others ahead of you. This happens every time I go there. And then they blame it on each other. Don't bother making a reservation just stay in their face begging or know them and they will push you ahead.

    My wife and I enjoy fine dining and good casual dining and consider ourselves 'educated foodies.' When we are in the mood for a good steakhouse, Ruth's Chris is always a home run. There is just nothing like a perfectly cooked medium rare filet piping hot in sizzling butter. This was our first experience at this location and it met all expectations. I have been disappointed since Ruth's went all corporate and have found some locations have lost their luster. The Lafayette location felt like it was locally run and managed and the staff from greeting to dessert was very helpful and accommodating. We will return here.

    Had requested a nice table to celebrate anniversary and when we arrived we were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary," and promptly shown to a well-located booth. Server Jennifer was friendly, efficient and did not hover. Everything we ordered was absolute perfection from the excellent Chop Salad to the perfectly cooked and flavorful filets, asparagus and potatoes. The creme brûlée was incredible, as usual. We have always enjoyed our meals at Ruth's but this one was exceptional and memorable. Thanks to all who made it so. Only negative comment would be that we were neither visited nor acknowledged by host.

    Some problems because of being Christmas night. Reservations for 7 p.m. Was not seated until about 7:45. Had 3 children with us so made evening too late with the little ones. Some confusion with orders. Checks came before dessert. Mashed potatoes and spinach served at room temperature. Asked for additional drinks three times befor we got them.

    We had eaten here one month earlier. The service was spectacular and Jennifer our waitress was on top of everything. We each ordered meat, I a petit filet and my son a filet oscar. Both were cooked perfectly medium rare and we left nothing on the plates. I started with the crab cocktail very nice and my son had a Caesar salad. My pre meal martini was prepared just the way I like it and perfectly cold. My son had a beer. I ordered a glass of St Supery cab with the meat and it was timely served just as the steak arrived. An overall wonderful, high quality experience we will definitely go back. Mark Goracy.

It's a comfortable setting where we can meet friends, bring the family, or enjoy a romantic dinner. We love the food and the wine. It's our dining home.
