Ruffino's is always a good place to go whether for a family gathering or a small dinner for two. We enjoyed the cocktails as well as the food and surroundings

Excellent time with friends. The service wasn’t quite as exceptional as it usually is.

Only one issue, Open Table was told that we hadn’t made our reservation, when we had! Must not happen again!

We had to ask and remind the waitress for things several times. Wasn't a pleasant experience.

This was my first time trying Ruffino's for brunch after many times for dinner. The fresh mozzarella appetizer was fantastic and the shrimp & grits were outstanding as well. Service was impeccable as always and bottomless mimosas are never a bad thing.

Pretty good birthday dinner experienced in Ruffino's. My son seven years old had much fan to make his pizza by himself.

I've been before and we've never been disappointed. Making reservations went very smoothly. We walked in right on time and were immediately taken to our table. Someone approached us right away and we received all food and beverage in good timing. I received an excellent wine recommendation. We all got different cuts of steak with different temperatures and all were cooked perfectly! Great food, great service, will definitely be back. I recommend reservations because they do get very busy on the weekends!

My fiancé and I love coming to this place for our “fancy” date nights! The food is always so amazing, the atmosphere is comfortable, and the service is wonderful!

Had same waiter as previous outing, he was just as good as our service in July/August. However, his help was not as attentive as before. Also, even though we were there to celebrate our anniversary, we requested a dessert menu twice and it was not provided that, just the "free" Happy Anniversary plate. No coffee, no after dinner drink(s), nothing. Very disappointed.

Had a great experience at Ruffinos for my birthday. I had the fish Katie and my husband had the butter steak, both were great. Service was excellent as well. We will be back!

Well I was disappointed to say the VERY least! I proceeded to make reservations,l and plans were made. We drove up to the restaurant to find out that It was CLOSED! why in the world would online take reservations if the restaurant is closed?? It seems as though the restaurant, billboard and online reservation should be in sync! Very very very disappointing!! It was our 20th wedding anniversary that we were going to spend with our children!

Hadn't been to Ruffino's in a while and definitely glad we went to celebrate a birthday. Every dish was cooked perfectly from the redfish special to veal Michael. The attentive wait staff helped us celebrate, and we really enjoyed the night!
