    This was a great place to have a business lunch. The waiter was conscientious about not interrupting our conversation. The food was delicious and consistently good. The atmosphere was business friendly with moderate lighting and tables not too close together. Great experience

    We have been to Ruth's several times. We went this week to take advantage of "Restaurant week". It was a Sunday evening. It appeared that they were short staffed. Not the normal attention you usually receive. Our server was wonderful and did the best he could. He recommended a wine that we really enjoyed. The food was delicious, our filets cooked perfectly. And, the restaurant week price offering for a three course meal (Salad, Petite filet, spinach and dessert), wonderful!

    We were really impressed. When you dine at a restaurant like Ruth Chris, you expect a certain experience. This location did a wonderful job. The staff honored my request to be sat at a quiet/secluded table. We had rose petals on our table, our desserts came with a Happy Anniversary message, and multiple staff members wished us a Happy Anniversary. The food was amazing and our server, Frank, was outstanding. He was professional, kind, and never rushed us. We left full and very happy with our experience.

  • Disappointing Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    We dine out on a regular basis and I don't usually take the time to write a review unless I think a restaurant needs a better rating based on my favorable experience - or in this instance, I had a dining experience that was quite unsettling. No vintages on a highly (4x retail) marked up wine list? How do I know what I am getting? The waiter certainly didn't know. The excuse being that the vintages change too often to justify reprinting the wine list? Really!!!?? Who is making these decisions? The filet was Ok but not cut the greatest. There are a bunch of great steak house options in the greater NO area. This one won't be on my list. All in all the feel of a place that really doesn't care about being a top end restaurant anymore.

    I have enjoyed Ruth's Chris steakhouse many times in many cities of course the original was on Broad street in New Orleans and I'm not sure if that location still exists but they are all wonderful. I definitely enjoy the Metairie location because of the local south Louisiana/New Orleans touch.

    Always great and delicious, our recent visit to Ruth's Chris in Metairie was punctuated by our server, Ann-Marie's attention to our party's needs throughout our dinner. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and all the accouterments to our meals were equally enjoyable. A requisite stop on every visit to New Orleans, we look forward to dining with our friends at Ruth's Chris next time we're in town.

    Overall experience at this restaurant was not nearly as good as the Memphis location. Food and certainly not service. My guest was asked to remove his hat before entering the dining room which was okay. But upon our entrance their were two other gentlemen dining with their hats on. It was brought to the attention of the maître'd and was told "oh their leaving". They didn't. Gave us the perception of discrimination. We ordered and took our food to go. Waitress was good. The bread that was brought out was cold. I would never return to this location. We felt singled out and treated differently.

    As you might expect, the Ruth's Chris Metairie location was overrun with people on Valentine's evening. In spite of this they managed to do well in managing reservations---had to wait maybe 20-30 minutes for a table. I was extremely disappointed with our porterhouse for 2. It was tough and chewy. Not the usual you expect from Ruth's Chris. Everything else was what you might expect from them. Had a very competent server-Lynell.

    Ordered a Reisling wine we hadn't had before. Delicious Garden fresh salad with your bleu cheese can't be duplicated. Our filets were slightly more than medium well, but the hot plate may have cooked them more than needed. They were still the best filet in town. The chocolate dessert may be the reason we come back sooner that we expect to. Our waitress was Velma. She was excellent. Joe also made sure that we were pleased with everything. SEE YOU SOON

    Treating my cousin to dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse has become an annual tradition for her birthday. Next year, I plan to invite a slightly larger party of close relatives to share the experience. Wonderful food; Excellent service; nice ambiance. As a recently returned "native" of the Kenner/Metaire area, its nice to find "Fine Dining" without having to travel into the big "City"! The appetizers were divine! Coffee superb; special birthday desert treat was out of this world delicious!
