Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Unfortunately, the food and service standards are below par for the price. Do not get the tuna appetizer nor the lamb chops (covered in butter and fat. No mint sauce even though it says so on menu.)"

  • "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. "

  • "It was freezing cold in the restaurant requiring us to go back out to our cars to get coats. All 4 in our party found this to be the case. The food was very good as usual. Will probably not choose to eat there on holidays- just too busy. "

  • "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."

  • "A nice place but the wine is so overpriced that I can't in good conscience advise anyone to go there and get punished. If you are not a drinker it will be fine."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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"

  • "Went here for a surprse lunch for V-Day. It smelled amazing inside....and the food was wonderful!! I had to send back my steak but, that was ok as I would rather have to send it back and get it right than get it very well done. The service was impeccable as usual. We always enjoy our visits to Ruth's Chris!"

  • "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!"

  • "I've been eating at this resturant for 40 years. This was the worst steak I ever had. It was so tough I could barely cut it. I should have sent it Back but the conversation was too good. Service that night wasn't Great either."

  • "My very sweet soon to be wife took me here for my birthday dinner. She told me that her late father dinned there a lot and said it was the best steak in town especially the Ribeye and boy was he right.The steak was done to perfection the drinks were top notch. Our waitress done a first class job of looking after us. I believe her name was Anne Marie and would highly recommend her when we ordered desert she new it was my birthday and had the kitchen staff write Happy Birthday on the plate our bread Pudding came on.Once again kudos' to Ruths Chris Steak House for making it such an enjoyable dinning experience."

  • "This was a family outing and the dinner was outstanding. The Crabtini was exceptional as was the fried lobster appetizer! We were running late but they expedited the meal. I have to say the food and service was fantastic! We tried everything from their classic steaks to lobster tails and barbecue shrimp and everything was great."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "This was our first trip back since Hurricane Katrina. OK, that's a long time and maybe my memory is a little foggy but, as I recall, our previous experience here was outstanding. From the food to the wine to the service. Friday night, two out of three weren't bad. The wine was delicious and service friendly and well informed. Everything leading up to my Cowboy Ribeye was outstanding. Now, I understand that the ribeye is not the leanest of cuts but, when I tell you that when I finished, I had a plate of fat that was as large as my wife's steak, I am not exaggerating. I've had better for less elsewhere. Sorry Miss Ruth but you missed the mark this time."

  • "It was my daughters 17th birthday so I wanted it to be VERY special. She loves steak so I suprised her and took her to Ruth Chris Metairie. She had never had the pleasure of ***** dining so I wanted the best. She ordered Filet Medium Well (menu says a little pink inside) and an order of broccoli. Her first steak out she cut it.. So overcooked dry and looked burnt on the outside.. Waitress was so embarrased she took it back and ordered another one... 25 minutes later after my dinner was finished she brought back another steak and when cut in half it was once again overcooked.. Maitre D once again apologized and put it another steak which 20 minutes later it was delivered to our table and we boxed it go.. So sad"
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "We dined here during restaurant week, and it was truly the best steaks we have ever eaten. Service was impeccable. I personally did not care for the flourless chocolate cake, but I don't care for rich desserts. I recommend the fried lobster appetizer, I know it sounds weird but it was amazing!"

  • "When we ordered from the Restaurant Week Menu, it seemed there was a slight change in her attitude. We realize the tip is different than the a la carte menu, but all customers should be treated equally. Several tables ordered from the special menu and their servers were fine. I recevied the wrong salad, which she did offer to change, but there was a slight edge in her voice. We asked someone else for drink refills, because our server had not come back. Second time we asked for drink refills she replied, "They come automatically". I don't consider waiting 15 minutes with empty glasses automatic, esp when she offered the table next to us drinks several times, but we were determined not to let her ruin our 31st anniversary."
