    Went during restaurant week for a great deal! The petite filet was tender& cooked to perfection. Salad was fresh. Sides were Spinach Madeleine & garlic mashed potatoes. Both were flavorful & wonderful compliment to steaks. We sat in glassed room & enjoyed the sunny afternoon & watching the activity on Fulton St. Service was very professional. Didn't order cocktails . Would have been expensive if not restaurant week. Even at full price, would have been well- worth it!

    Had a wonderful meal at the Ruth's Chris location at Harrah's in NOLA. I had French onion soup and petite filet for a main course which was cooked to perfection. Came out sizzling hot on a 500 degree plate. Wow, fantastic!! My husband had BBQ shrimp which is a little different recipe than a traditional NOLA BBQ shrimp using butter rather than oil as a base for the sauce. For his entree he had the special which was Caribbean spiny lobster from Peru. Best lobster ever, sweet and succulent. Shared a couple of scoops of ice cream for dessert. Service was awesome.....ask for Michelle. She's a jewel!! :)

    First experience at Ruth's Chris. Anniversary dinner while visiting New Orleans. Being New Orleans, already had experienced some very fine cuisine and were excited to finally experience RC. Ambiance - very nice. Service - exceptional. BBQ shrimp appetizer; good but didn't live up to the reputation communicated to us. My wife had the 11oz fillet - tender but not the most tasty. I had the 5oz fillet and 5oz lobster tail. Steak was very tasty and tender; the lobster tail, however, was over-cooked & rubbery. The veggies that we ordered were good. Flavors should really stand out when dropping close to 2 bills. That didn't happen. Over all, would we go back again? Our belief is that we've had as good or better for for less money.

    Had "Steak Night" with a friend at Ruth's Chris. The food was VERY Good; Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, the Gumbo, the Steaks & Sides; everything. HOWEVER, the service was a DISASTER! Wait staff should be re-trained to be observant and without being obtrusive. Hints; 1) please don't bring the steaks to the table 5 minutes after you've brought the Gumbo, appetizers; 2) whoever brings the food to the table should check to see if everyone has necessary silverware; 3) if it is "not your station," then please find appropriate waitress for the patron who is looking for silverware, his lost order of wine, or their missing side orders. It is what makes the difference between a pleasant dining experience and just a night at a casino hotel restaurant.

    This is by far one of our favorite restaurants and have been huge fans for years - their steaks are simply in their own category. I was, however, dismayed this time by their allowing guests to use electronic cigarettes. I know they have no smell but until research is actually performed on them and the FDA weighs in, as far as I'm concerned they should not be allowed in restaurants that are required to ban cigarettes (those required by state law).

    I took my husband there for his birthday, as I've been to Ruth's Chris restaurants in other states. First we were seated next to a table of 20, very loud people. I said this was not acceptable and the person was a bit rude about moving my table, even though I had said it was a special occasion in my reservation. Service was great after our initial seating. HOWEVER, this was a horrible meal. The filet was extremely gamey and the lobster was tough! My husbands cowboy cut had no taste. I spent 200 and expected a decent meal. I was very, very disappointed and will not be coming here again, despite excellent servers.

    This is not the first time at this location of Ruth's Chris and it didn't disappoint. From the valet parking, to the concierge and the waiter, the experience was outstanding. The sevice was excellent throughout the evening and we did not feel as if we were being rushed. The food was superior, as always. I would highly recommend the Ruth's Classic menu which features a four course meal for a fixed price. Whether you are craving steak, chicken or seafood, there are selections available for your taste. Included is the appetizer, entree, one side and desert. Best value for your dollar. Once dinner is finished, the entertainment options on Fulton St. are numerous.

    Ruth Chris is an occasion restaurant for us. Overall, the experience was very good. Steak was excellent. Yet, the the hostesses were less than friendly and inviting. We were sat at a table next to the kitchen door, which squeak so loud that we asked to move to another table which they accommodated. We really enjoy the lobster bisque and they were accommodating by allowing us to split it into 2 cups yet the soup was lukewarm. Tasty but lukewarm. I ordered a salad and the lettuce was not as fresh as it could've been. I ordered the fillet mignon and it came out piping hot was very tender and extremely tasty and perfectly cooked. Our servers and wait persons did a wonderful job and more attentive and kind and friendly.

    Nobody makes a better steak than Ruth's Chris. Probably the butter because butter makes everything better. Everything else was fantastic. The only thing that surprises is me is how boring Ruth's Chris bread is. Capital Grille offers several types of rolls and flatbreads instead of one simple, banal italian bread. Oh well. By not filling up on bread I was able to leave room for the meat.

    Went here for my girlfriend's birthday, was very pleased that they remembered the special dessert (creme brulee here favorite) with a candle in it. Girlfriend loved her 16oz bone in filet. And I say loved, she gave it a 15 on a 1 - 10 scale. I got the lemon-gingered scallops, which seemed a minute or two undercooked because they were still translucent. My chicken, vegetable, and tortellini soup was great! Our table was not crumbed once. The decor was fantastic, intimate and elegant at the same time. The ambience lost a star because of the lax dress code (people were seated wearing cutoff shorts, tee-shirts, and backwards baseball hats). The server also forgot to bring out my dessert that came with my meal (coconut and pineapple bread puddin

    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.
