Ruffinos -Steak-Seafood-Italian restaurant is an experience in Food and Atmosphere like no others. From the time you walk in and see the wood burning stove aflame, to the beautiful smiles on every Ruffino's team member's faces, you will have goose bumps on the back of your neck for the dining journey that awaits you. From our wonderful signature Crabmeat Cheesecake appetizer to our mind blowing Cedar Plank baked Redfish or our mouth watering Prime cut Steaks, the menu is diversive for everyone. The relaxed but swinging music along with perfect lighting and energy make this this ultimate restaurant in Louisiana. I where Louisiana Comes to Celebrate!

Waiter seemed confused when service us.. odd seating for our reservation, was delivered cold (almost frozen) dessert. Definitely will be my first and last time eating at Ruffino’s in Baton Rouge area. Wanted to try them out since the lafayette location is superb!!

In 21 years of dining at Dinardo’s/Ruffino’s, this was the first time we have experienced poor service and unpleasant food. We were stunned.

My fiancé and I went to Ruffino’s for our 6th year Anniversary. The service was wonderful. We had 2 servers! A few tables were removed to allow social distancing. All staff wore masks. We were served 3 courses very quickly-in and out within an hour. The dessert that we ordered came with a surprise momento to celebrate our occasion. Will definitely visit again.

Food and service were wonderful. Tables were more than 6 feet apart, which was very considerate. We appreciate Ruffino’s looking out for everyone’s health and safety.

We were seated at 6:30 and rec’d our appetizer immediately. It then took 20 minutes to get salad and another 45 minutes to get dinner. After waiting that long the chicken was raw and had to be sent back. The food was cold and not tasty. Once we finished eating our table was not bused.

Our experience was very good, except for the dress code. Our party of four took the time to dress business casual for our evening. Many of the other patrons of the restaurant were dressed in a similar fashion. Shortly after we were seated, a table of four came in dressed in shorts and flipflops. We found this a little disturbing. Their attire was more for the beach. Maybe dress requirements should be a little stricter.

We came here for my fiancé’s birthday and everything was great ! GM from the moment we walked in they wished her a HBD ... our service was beyond excellent! The food was amazing.. my fiancé had the rib eye (which she loved) and I had the chicken Parmesan(it was ok) all in all it was a great atmosphere with great food and most importantly she enjoyed everything so we are happy and will be back again.

Our bill was $150. That included appetizer (Caesar salad ,pork cheeks) our entree(rib eye and chicken Parmesan) one bottle of wine and dessert (white brownie w ice cream topping)

We LOVE Ruffino's and it has ALWAYS in the past been spectacular. So I guess we have come to expect perfection because that is how it has always been. This vist was very good but just a few things were off. The Drink person for the table might have been having an off night. He didn't take the drink orders right away as normally happens or give any initial introduction on himself and what his role was. The waitress was very attentive though and picked up the slack in that area. The next thing was that we had ordered two wedge salads with Blue Cheese. It seemed as though they did not have blue cheese dressing but possibly the ceasar. We ate it anyway - but really did want the Blue. Last, the Ricotta Cheesecake - we are pretty sure it was regular cheesecake and not the Ricotta like we usually get. Unless maybe someone else made it...??? It just didn't taste the same. Last was we missed the cotton Candy at the end - We actually forgot until we left but my mom and daughter really wanted it and were dissapointed we didn't get that. Maybe we have to ask for it now or somwthing? we did have two birthdays 75 & 77 and recvd bread pudding for them and it was wonderful! It was a good meal all in all and we had a good time. We appreciated the extra space between tables and out waitress was very good. Just giving a little feedback.

Ruffino’s is our go to place for special occasions. Filet mug on was very tender and cooked to perfection. However, we thought the test was not quite as delicious as usual. Still love Ruffino’s.

Great service in spite of short handed staff.
Don’t like the new oil dipping mix for the bread. Previous one with spices and balsamic was much better.
Lettuce in salad tasted wilted.

We always love going to Ruffino’s. The food is great and the staff is amazing. At the end of the night we were so moved when we saw that one of the chef’s was making banana foster for one of the guests while he was signing with the customer. Great customer service
