Steak
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!

The food was ok. We’ve been there plenty of times before and it was better. It took about ten minutes for someone to come to our table. They didn’t bring the kids cotton candy even though we requested it. Not sure if we will be back.

Food is always outstanding. They even agreed to fix me a favorite dish of mine that is no longer on their menu. The wait group of Jared, Jason and Molly is the best I have ever had to wait my table in any restaurant. This is my "go to" restaurant for all family celebrations or just for a relaxing, excellent dine out night for my wife and me.

Very good experience. Food was above reproach. Service, from a polite, well trained staff, was first rate. The most memorable part was the bread! One taste took me back to my childhood Italian neighborhood and the bread from Lupi Legna bakery served at Sunday dinner. I haven't found its equal until now.

Our fav date night spot. The staff always lets us sit at our special table in the bar area with. Big screen TVs and the waiters Jared and Jason remember us and kindly cater to our preferences. The meat balls are tops and I enjoyed the cedar plank redfish and broccolini.
