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!

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.

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

Ruffino’s is one of my favorite restaurants, but the food did not live up to expectations when my wife and I went for our anniversary dinner. The steaks were undercooked and tough even after sending them back the first time. Must have just had a bad day because the food and service is usually excellent.

The service was impeccable. Three of the entrees we ordered were perfect. However, the Alfredo pasta was bland and needed more sauce. (Note: I did not tell my server. I’m sure she would have made it right!)

Without even being asked, our server brought my wife a “Happy Birthday” platter with chocolate cake included. Every dish was top notch. Wish the brunch menu was broader, but the crabmeat omelette is probably all I’d ever get anyway!

The ambiance was nice charming decor nice fireplace. The food was very good. Other than too much cheese? in the oil mixture for the bread which made it taste bitter all the rest of the food was very tasty. We'd return.

Food was good, the tuna tartar was great, the fish and veal were good (nothing to write home over though); the ambiance was nice but it was really loud in there but I think that is just more a product of the tables and parties we were around than a reflection of the restaurant itself.
