    I have been to Ruth's Chris Steak House in Scottsdale and San Diego. I was really looking forward to dining at the one in New Orleans. The atmosphere was very nice. The food was as consistently delicious as I've experienced before. But, the service was not at as good as at other Ruth's Chris Steak Houses. Even though we were sat first, our waiter took another table's order before ours. And, the service was not as attentive as what it has been at their other locations. That was somewhat of a disappointment.

    I have been going to Ruth Chris' since its beginnings on Broad St. Have been to many out of the City and always argued that it was the best steak in America. The last few times that I have dined there it has been disappointing. Steaks tough and gristly, I hope that it can again become the steak house that I remember

    First things first: service was great especially considering that they were packed! With that, the fact that they were busting at the seams may have contributed to the quality of the food not being as good as usual. That's not to say the food wasn't good, it just wasn't excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant on any occasion. Just bear in mind that if it's busy or if there's a convention in town that it may not be the best place to go for either a romantic dinner or a quiet location.

    We try to visit Ruth's in many cities as we travel. This was not one of the better experiences. Forgetful waiter, overdone steaks. Waiter took good care of us, etc. Got us a dessert on the house to make up for cold potatoes and overdone steak, which was not his fault. Other than those things, the rest of the experience was great.

    Ruth's is by far my favorite place for steak. I don't believe anyone does such a great steak so consistently. I always know what I will get. The ribeye just melts in your mouth. The service is generally as good as the steak. On this night it was definitely as good as the steak. The anniversary decorations on the table were a very nice touch and appreciated.

    I've eaten in Ruth's Chris locations all around the US, starting with the Philly location back in the late 1980s. While some locations were better than others, they always provided a superior meal with a great, old-school prime steakhouse atmosphere with unparalleled service. The service is still there, but the food isn't. My last 3 experiences (Vegas, Granger IN and this one in New Orleans) just haven't cut it for the money. The one in Granger and NOLA were under the new menu, and it isn't a patch on the old one. The wine list is also now sub-par. This time I did a Maine lobster. It wasn't entirely overdone, but the crusher claw was rubberized at the tip and the legs were burnt. That is simply unacceptable in a $75 main course.

    I've visited the Ruth's Chris in Vegas, so definitely recommended it for our group in New Orleans. Dinner was wonderful. It was many in our group's first time and everyone commented how perfect the steaks were cooked. We each ordered from the Ruth's Classics menu and there was more than enough food to go around. Service was wonderful and we always felt taken care of.

    We really enjoyed the food and service here. This location is much more comfortable than theIr Metairie restaurant. While all of the steaks were great, the grilled shrimp could of used a LOT more seasoning. This restaurant serves the BEST bread pudding dessert anywhere. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    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).
