Diner Reviews
  • "Was really hoping for an excellent experience after reading all the reviews! Unfortunately, we felt like outsiders, the server seemed inconvenienced by us, the Medium steak came out with well done, and the rest of the meal was mediocre at best. It was our anniversary meal and we chose here to go after the casinos and we would've been better off going to another New Orleans establishment. We didn't see any kind of manager or shift supervisor during our stay, which I believe is ideal for a successful business to run. Oh well, maybe this just happens once in a while. Hope others have a better experience than we did."

  • "All facets of the visit was superb. The two waitstaff assisting us was very knowledgeable of the menu and and politely made suggestions. We were not interrupted at all during our conversations but they knew the proper time was for them to check on us. The steaks and sides were excellent."

  • "Reservation was for 9:30, but we got there early. The hostess seated us shortly after we arrived at 8:30. We really appreciated that. We live closer to the Metairie location but prefer poydras location. The noise level was louder than I expected but it would have been much better if we could have sat closer to each other. The table size and arrangement don't allow for private conversation. Upon getting the lobster bisque it's was luke warm at best so we returned it to be reheated, it returned at the same temperature. But our main courses were absolutely delicious, she had the crab cakes and I had the ribeye. We could not complain after that!!! Will definitely visit again but will likely skip the bisque."

  • "I brought in a cake and birthday table decorations to the hostess, Angel, whom was so helpful and accommodating, around 7pm for our 9:15 reservation. I also called several days before to change the number in my party, and they wre happy to do so!Upon walking to the table for the surprise, we found the table decorated with all of the party supplies that I had brought, and all of our guests in party hats! It was great! The food is always exceptional! Steaks are cooked to perfection and sides and are superb!With such a large party, the server even offered to split everyone's checks. She was very attentive and the drinks kept coming, which everyone loved. Cake came out sparkling, and our sever cut and served a slice to each guest! Awesome!"

  • "Of course Ruth's will never be the same without Ruth Fertel. It is truly a shame. Meat not the same quality. Change of the potatoes au gratin to scalloped potatoes with a garlic cheese sauce. Just not the same. Also, restaurant stuck us way in the back -- not they we go that often but we surely are not tourist!!!"

  • "Feb. 1, 2014, New Orleans, LA. My first time at Ruth's Chris since the Broad Street location shut down. Myself, my fiancé and a friend-couple patronized this restaurant, for his 60th birthday celebration. We didn't to wait long for a table -- just long enough to sit down and chat in their comfy & very nicely-appointed lobby. Our waitress, Robin, was very friendly and affable; and, I didn't stop eating until -- I could no longer eat! Had to even bring some home! FABULOUS TIME!"

  • "My boyfriend had to send his filet back twice. The first time he had a large piece of cartilage running through it. Our waiter took it back with no questions asked and apologized. I finished my meal way before his new filet was brought back. The second filet had a lot of fat in it and it was under cooked (it was supposed to be medium-rare). Granted, neither of us have ever had a bad experience at this location before. Maybe it was just an off night in the kitchen. We were definitely disappointed in the quality. The service was great as usual."

  • "The food is ALWAYS spot on and everything on the menu is good! Definitely make a reservation. However, if you are looking for any kind of ambiance at all request to NOT be seated in the "sunroom". It is very loud and everything in there looks beat up ( the chairs, the woodwork) . Otherwise, you can't go wrong here. Vallet parking is a plus."

Good looking room and quiet enough for us to have a conversation without yelling. Service was really good. Food was good. Overall a solid experience."

  • "I decided to take my wife to this particular restraunt and what a dissappointment. We will Never do that again!!!! I am assuming by the approach and unduly warmth of the very courteous staff, unless we were part of the NBA Jam you aren't necessarily worthy of decent service. I would say everyone around us was and were catered to relentlessly. The good was ok at best, the wait staff really needs to consider who thier potential long customers may be and possibly need training it appeared as though if and only if You were if the African-America culture, would you receive decent service I am thoroughly disappointed and will pass this on to all my friends, family members and co workers!!!"

  • "I've been to many other RC restaurants and love them all. Not today! Service was mediocre. Water glasses ignored. Usual attentive service was out to lunch. Ordered a glass of wine, 10 min later they told me I had a wrong menu & that wine isn't available they put another menu in front of me & sure enough the wine I previously mentioned was magically missing. So I ordered again & finally my "pre-dinner" drink arrived with my dinner. When the steaks arrived they were dropped at the table and left. They usually come back shortly to check on the steaks wellness or lack there of. I choose the bone-in filet which was a serious deviation from my regular filet, I ordered medium & received bloody rare. No one cared but me. Disappointing. :-("

  • "Had dined at lafayette la location. Always pleases. Drove 2 hrs to take daughter out for 21st birthday celebration. Concerned that on line reservation may compromise personal touch. Pleasantly surprised. Perfect evening , confetti on table , perfect booth , like our own private party. Food was awesome. Waiter was awesome - great suggestions , personal touch. Memorable evening that the birthday girl will " remember when ..." For years to come. Very impressive. Love this location !"

  • "This is a great steak house, but very noisy. We even had a private booth and the bar is sooooo noisy! If you like quiet or romantic, ask for a table far away from the bar. The noise is worth it though."
