We are new to the Baton Rouge area and wanted to find a Sunday brunch spot. A friend recommended Ruffino's. The restaurant ambiance is inviting, table cloths on all tables staff dressed in all black. We were greeted warmly and promptly shown to our table. One staff member served beverages, then another for bread/parmesan olive oil and we were told another staff person would attend to our food order. The restaurant wasn't overly busy at the time however it did take a while (10-12 minutes) for the server to come to our table. All the staff was quite friendly and genuine. One of the two entrees we ordered was prepared incorrectly and had to be sent back. At brunch Ruffino's offers endless mimosas for $11.95 which was a nice way to enjoy brunch. The shrimp and grits were delish as well and the omelet.
A little too dark. Servers excellent. Food was very tasty but would have liked a little more on plate with crabmeat omelet/ bacon. Looked too empty. Minor complaint. Otherwise highly recommend.
Not much “breakfast” on the brunch menu, although the crab cakes are some of the best in Baton Rouge. Was disappointed that the bottomless Mimosas were “one size fits all.” Recommend charging a bit more and letting the clients adjust the orange juice level to their taste.
Great experience! I ordered a Stella as my drink and was really looking forward to the Stella glass but did not receive one.
The service and food at Ruffino's are outstanding. This is a great choice for a special occasion.
Paid $40 for a scotch meat that came with ice. Was told it could not be replaced.
Everything was great as usual. Service was amazing. Everyone was very helpful. Food was amazing! We love celebrating life here.
The food and service were outstanding! I highly recommend Ruffino's.
A Lovely restaurant & exceptional staff/service!
The staff and ambiance of this restaurant maintain a high standard. Very visit seems appreciated and is enjoyed. Last night I asked for flowers to be brought to our table (as I handed them over, I was met with a smile and no problem attitude). They were placed on our table with happiness and joy that we were celebrating a birthday with them. I ordered the lasagna and it was not quite as good as my last visit, just needed more sauce. The redfish enjoyed by my guest was excellent.
Enjoyed the dinning, I will definitely make another visit in the future
I felt uncomfortable with the waiters' service. they put and took things off the table quickly without asking. I didn’t like my cocktail drink
The only thing was the pleasant surprise of the Peach Bellini
The server should have given a choice of one with or without alcohol
An example is the one offered at Olive Garden
This was my favorite restaurant when I lived in Baton Rouge. Took my mom here for Mother’s Day this past Sunday. Made a reservation for BRUNCH only to find out when we sat down that they were only serving their dinner menu because they were “too busy” for the brunch menu. Service was almost nonexistent and rushed when we did receive it. Our servers definitely didn’t want to be there. I got my usual Veal Michael, my favorite Italian dish for years, but it was incredibly bland and unseasoned. Super disappointed as this was always my go-to recommendation for a nice meal in BR. Next time I’ll just have her make the trip to New Orleans. Ruffinos is too expensive to be so subpar. I like to give the benefit of the doubt, given we are still in a pandemic, but I’ve eaten out many times since things have reopened and haven’t had experiences even close to this.
We managed to get a last minute reservation on graduation night, and we all totally enjoyed our evening!! The food was delicious, and the drinks and wine were excellent!
Great food and service as always. Will go back often.
Always such a great experience, and extra special for our kids 10th birthday!!

Waitress was horrible. My water glass was never full and sat empty for half an hour. She forgot the extra bread we ordered and ended up taking it to go. My salad was warm and not cold. My guest's plate was scorching hot, yet the pizza was very cold which means it sat under the lamp too long. Also, the corn and crab bisque tasted way too sweet. my guest and I were both overall not satisfied. This was the first time I took my guest there, and she didn't want to even tip the waitress because of her service. It's one thing that the food wasn't as good as it used to be, but to have a lowsy waitress with it, isn't good. I highly advise you guys get your waitresses/servers in check or you will lose a lot of business.
Great dining experience food and sever was equally amazing!!
The food wasn’t hot, it was warm and the taste wasn’t what I was expecting. I ordered the shrimp Alfredo and the sauce tasted like it came out of a box lol. The only upside of it was the shrimp in it cause they were really good and were fresh
Ruffino’s was amazing! We came to celebrate my husband’s birthday and they did not disappoint! Service was top notch and the food was delicious. We look forward to coming again soon!
Consistently great steaks with terrific service. Great ambiance.
It was our first time going for brunch. I will say, I was really disappointed. I had hoped this would have be amazing.
IT was me, my husband, two of our friends there celebrating my birthday. There's nothing special about the food, equivalent of a small cafe. Not to mention the poached eggs were over cooked and my food was very cold. I had eggs benedict but wanted to add jumbo lump crab, which came in a dipping sauce cup and was cold. I'm pretty sure the english muffin wasn't toasted. Our friend ordered the burger which said was amazing! We all agreed, we ordered the wrong thing that day.
The service was good, we were late for our reservation and they still sat us immediately. Our waiter did try to make it up to us with free dessert.
We really enjoyed our dinner! I highly recommend the crab pie appetizer!!!
Great food and service! We had the Veal Michael and Chicken Fettucine, and I'd highly recommend both dishes. I got the strawberry basil lemonade; it was okay but tasted premade...not a handcrafted cocktail.
Great birthday celebration location!
Never disappointed when dining at Ruffino’s From the food to service to great friends.
Their team did an excellent job!
This is a great place for family or a romantic dinner. Priced for all
Waiter was exceptional, fun and offered a lot of information about food choices. Food was wonderful, ambience was very fun, we had a great time! I had the cedar plank redfish and it was absolutely melt-in-mouth delicious, the salad was crisp and very flavorful. Finished with the special baked Alaska dessert which we enjoyed as a table, it was very unique, loved the blueberries! Wonderful night.
Wonderful service. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection.
Ordered a couple drinks which took a while to get, and by the time we got them, my old fashion was watered down from all the cubed ice they used melting. The other drink was a lemon drop martini which was heavy on the simple syrup and not so heavy on the vodka. In other words, my whiskey was watered down and the martini was the weakest martini I’ve ever tasted. So for round 2, we went with a bottle of cab which we figured the bartender couldn’t mess up. Crab cheesecake app was good as usual. We both ordered the ribeye. Hers was a bit bland and mine was a bit tough. Definitely average steaks, nothing special. White chocolate brownie was incredible. Overall average experience. This has always been our favorite BR restaurant for a long long times, but really was not impressed this go round. It might be a while for us to return.
Haven’t eaten at Ruffino’s for a couple of years..... surely been missing it. Food and service was wonderful... will be back again!
Steaks were excellent.
Service over the top.
Dining room freshly painted
Great experience ! Waiters were awesome and Amazing food!
Food was amazing and the people their was very nice
Preferred what was once the best dish offered, Fish Katie. The fish was extremely fishy. I asked manager and was told it was red fish. Reason for fishy taste was “the ponds froze in Texas”. Red fish do not come from ponds. Bad experience
It's the perfect place for sister night with great drinks and good food!
A good every day restaurant, we would go back. The service was also very good.
