It was our anniversary which the staff was very polite and friendly and congratulated us constantly on the special occasion. However, we were sat in a back corner by an emergency exit door where we could hear outdoor drainage and everything happening in the parking lot. The appetizer, bread, and drinks were all good. But both of our entrees were extremely undercooked (after we waited 20+ minutes to even place our order, and then waited another half hour for the order to come out). Overall it was an ok experience, but when you spend $150 for raw fish and a bloody steak it’s hard to fully enjoy the experience. Much better alternative options around Baton Rouge, most likely will not visit this restaurant again.

We were their to celebrate our 51st Wedding Anniversary. The service was outstanding and the food, as expected was great. A caveat, was being visited by the manager with anniversary wishes and a few minutes just to visit.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful date night on Friday evening. Our reservation was for 8 and we were about 15 minutes early. We waited less than 5 minutes before we were seated. Overall, the experience was really lovely and the food was amazing. All of the waitstaff wore masks and there was hand sanitizer at the door. Our waiter seemed very swamped and his presentation wasn’t the best. He was incredibly casual with us, which felt very strange. We had the crabmeat cheesecake and we split a sensation salad. The cheesecake is incredible, definitely a must. I had the grilled tuna which came with broccolini. My boyfriend had the ribeye with asparagus. Honestly, everything was amazing. We skipped dessert because we were stuffed, but I cannot wait to go back.

We celebrated our 10th Anniversary and we were happy that the staff acknowledged that. The service was beyond excellent. My wife is very particular about her steak and it came out perfect. Great place to celebrate something.

Always a great place to eat. Limited menu right now due to Covid. Having only one fresh fish available, it did not pair well with sauce offered. Chicken Parm was great. Wine selection is always great.

Great meal, great service and great food. What more do you want? If you’ve never been to this wonderful restaurant plan to spend a little time looking at Ruffin’s pictures on the wall. Let’s just say he’s an LSU fan. I’d be hard-pressed to think of an another LSU Ex-player who has this much. This is me and my neighbors about halfway into the wine

We Frequent to this place a lot which is always great but we got put in the back room; drinks went empty multiple times throughout the meal. We had to ask for bread twice. We ordered soup as appetizer it came after the entree did. Also ordered coffee with desert we waited on coffee our ice cream on desert was melted very disappointed in our attendant over food.

We were celebrating three birthdays and we could not get any of the servers (because there are multiple per table) to come back and take our orders. We were only a able to order one round of drinks and the empty glasses stayed on the abnormally small table all night long. We decided to switch to wine so we could at least make sure we had drinks so we asked for the wine list. The server told us we could view it on our mobile device and then we did not see him again for 40 minutes. We had to track him down. They forgot part of my order and the rest Of the food was average at best. We would have spent more money and ordered more drinks so we would not have noticed The sub par meal if we had received halfway decent service. The only redeeming part of the evening was at the end for the birthday presentation from the server who took pictures for us.

The crab cheesecake is one of the best appetizers in Baton Rouge. Never had a great meal here, never had a bad meal. Consistently in the 7-8 range. Worth checking out for brunch!

My wife and I had a wonderful time. The service was the upmost courteous and the setting was real relaxing. Our food was so delicious and the drinks were made on point, lol. Since it was a special occasion for us, they surprised us with a rich chocolate cake and cotton candy. That was the highlight of the night.

Service during COVID was excellent. Face coverings, excellent waitress, very attentive refilling water. We all got 4 different things: Fish Katie - very good with lump crabmeat. 8oz filet - cooked correctly, very tender and tasty. Pork chop - excellent, tender, juicy. Veal - lightly breaded, very thin.
Very good restaurant, just not my favorite in Baton Rouge.

We enjoyed our food and the ambiance was ok. We were seated next to a rather loud room/section for a larger dinner party. The waiter was kind and hospitable but didn't ask if we were celebrating anything. We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was my husband's birthday. I know this is a minor thing but we chose to celebrate two special occasions at Ruffinos but our waiter didn't ask us. :( No free dessert or anything. Again trivial, but that is something you look forward to when going out to dinner at a place like Ruffinos. Other than that it was a pleasurable dining experience and the food did not disappoint!

Love Ruffinos. I like how they have spaced the tables for the virus. I just hope after the virus they don’t crowd the tables as they had before the virus. The noise level was so high you couldn’t have a conversation with your table. I know they will add more tables which is fine but don’t make it elbow to elbow!
