Ruffino's -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 face, you will have goosebumps 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 diverse for everyone. The relaxed but swinging music along with perfect lighting and energy make this the ultimate restaurant in Louisiana. It's where Louisiana Comes to Celebrate Life!

Thanksgiving. It was great. I would like to recommend that they bring the appetizers and then after the salad instead of at the same time. Also we felt rushed. There were empty tables and new reservations coming in at about 2 and they asked us for to go boxes before we were even finished with the entree!

Overall very good

Very disappointed in the new atmosphere. Used to be upscale with excellent service - great place to celebrate special and everyday occasions- now it’s a sports bar feel. Too bad.

So accommodating ! When we arrived for our reservation at our favorite date table in the corner we found it was set for six people. Without asking, They kindly broke it down in size for us to sit there…
Love these guys! Not to mention the consistently great food.

The food and drinks were fine. The service, however, was lacking a little as our server didn't seem too interested. There were long periods of time between his check-ins with us. In fact, we actually had to flag down someone else in the restaurant to ask them to go get our server so we could actually order our meal.

Service was excellent and most of the food was great with the exception of the Veal Michael. The veal was tough and did not taste like veal.
Everything else was very good and above expectation

The fish and shrimp beignets appetizer was one of the most delicious and unique appetizers I have ever tasted...so yummy! I had the fish with alligator sauce piquant special for my entrée and my husband had the Filet Oscar and we were both extremely happy with our choices. Loved the Halloween costumes on the servers too..so fun!
