  • "Had a tandem of two outstanding servers who clearly enjoyed the job and kept us smiling the whole evening. Food was top quality as usual."

  • "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."

  • "my dinner date and I felt harassed ..... multiple waiters and waitresses came over, almost every 3 minutes to grab plates that we were still eating off of!!!! Very disappointing"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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 husband and I love Ruth Chris, this visit was a little disappointing. The food came out a little burnt and service could have been a lot better. Overall this visit was a miss but usually everything is amazing. I would still recommend this restaurant, they just had an off night."

  • "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."

  • "MY family and I made a reservation with Opentable online. I t could not have been more perfect. We had an 80 year old grandmother celebrating a birthday. I ordered flowers via Opentable and they were there on time and perfect. We also had two in our party that have gluten free alergies which I mentioned in the reservation. There on our table were GF menues and our waiter was GF (on purpose I think) and knew all we needed to know for a perfect meal. The birthday desert for our 80 year old grandmother was the topping on the cake."

  • "I used to dislike this restaurant since, for an upscale type restaurant, there would be children running around the dining area. The atmosphere was ruined when this would happen. Since this had been an issue several times during my visits, I decided to stop going to eat here. I finally went back about a year ago and have tried to go at least once a month since then. My experiences have always been wonderful. Now it is one of my favorite restaurants in town!"

We are true steak lovers and on our recent trip to Lafayette, we sampled the wonderful cuisine offered there. It was truly a dining experience we will remember. The steaks were perfect. Actually, everything was perfect. The staff was so friendly and courteous; attentive without being hovering. The whole dining experience was pleasant, relaxed, and of course delicious. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone who enjoys a truly good meal."
