It was the start of my birthday month.
Anniversary dinner with friends. Food was excellent
Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Ruffino’s.
We frequent this place, but haven’t been out much because of COVID-19.
The service was great but I found the food wasn’t up to par as it has been in the past. Salad had wilted lettuce and even though I ordered the nightly special lamb chops they were a little under seasoned and under cooked for a medium temperature.
I know Ruffino’s is better than this, so I may return once this pandemic has passed.
COVID has everyone off their “A” game.
We seated early to avoid crowds. The staff was very attentive but not intrusive. The appetizers and main course were excellent. Mixed drinks were excellent. We did not have desert. The 4 of us agree, we wound absolutely go there again.
We were looking for a great date night spot! Ruffino's did not disappoint. We were able to get a table outside on the patio over looking the water! Great food, drinks, and service.
This was a fantastic place and the staff is the bomb!
Just awesome from beginning to end.
Amazing experience and beautiful scenery
Ask for a table outside, it's air-conditioned and the view is great!
Sunday lunch on a beautiful day. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and welcome. There was no rush to order, they let us enjoy our drinks. Food was exceptional.
quite a dining experience!
These reservation were made to surprise my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary. They loved the food & both of their servers. They could not thank us enough for the gift. In return, I cannot thank Ruffino’s on the River for making this milestone anniversary one to remember for them. We plan on celebrating all of our special occasion dinners at Ruffino’s. It was that special.
We loved it. Wonderful dining experience and awesome for date night. The turtle cheesecake is delicious.
I wish the service and food were consistent. It seems like your experience and the service you get is based on being a regular. For an occasional diner at Ruffino’s this is disappointing and disheartening.
The service, the food and the ultimate blonde brownie were delicious 😋 !!!!
Dinner was delicious, beautiful view overlooking the river. No complaints at all
Love the atmosphere. Everything was great except for:
Only thing it was our anniversary dinner as we specified on reservation plus my daughter called to confirm it would be acknowledged but it was not. Just a missed photo op and dessert. A little disappointing.
A very delicious offering of appetizers, seafood and Italian dishes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Will be back to celebrate my birthday!
This place is usually a favorite of ours but it was off. Specifically requested dining room seating....received bar height tiny table in bar. Could barely speak to one another due to the music being extremely WAY TOO loud. No cotton candy.
Had an envie’ for their veal Parmesan. Had it before and thought it was exceptional. Tonight though seasoning was a bit off and veal was tough. Pasta and red sauce were spot on though. Wife had shrimp Sorrento. Shrimp seemed a bit aged but sauce and pasta were good. Had a very good creme brûlée For dessert . And braised pork cheeks as an appetizer was just right.
The food quality was just a little above Olive Garden for a way higher price. Not very appealing.
The food was outstanding. We had the appetizer sampler and it was superb. Our server staff was very attentive and super nice. Cannot wait to go back.
Food & atmosphere proved wonderful with impeccable service. We look forward to choosing Ruffino’s again to celebrate our special occasions.
We really enjoyed our evening!
Awesome service, food & atmosphere
Server made our dining experience special as we were celebrating our 40th anniversary
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal! Our waitstaff was AMAZING! We will definitely be back!!!
It was so enjoyable. I love how quick everyone is at making sure you are taken care of. Separate drink servers and food servers is genius.
The service was outstanding, we had a waitress for our drinks and a waiter for our food and they both stayed on top of it all! The food was great and the drinks were even greater!
Initially it was a Father's Day dinner for my sweetheart, Chad, which he turned into a marriage proposal.... definitely an amazing experience at Ruffino's the food was amazing along with the atmosphere and to top it off I get to spend life with a wonderful man... I think this will be our anniversary spot! Thank you again for making this special day amazing! Jake our waiter was superb!
Everyone was super nice!
Went for Sunday brunch on Father’s Day but they were not serving the Sunday brunch menu. Instead they were serving the regular dinner menu at 11:am. It would have been nice to know that when I made the reservation. No mention of the change online or on Facebook. They even posted on Saturday (the day before fathers’s day) to “come check out the brunch menu”. I asked the servers about it and they were dismissive and just shrugged their shoulders. Very disappointing response.
Our steaks were excellent and cooked to our specifications. The cotton candy at the end almost makes you forget you're in a high-end establishment and revert you back to your childhood...the perfect treat!
Girlfriends’ Birthday... Wait Staff is EXCELLENT to include the young Man in training...
I ordered the seared tuna dish w/broccolini;
The seared tuna dish was ordered rare & arrived btwn medium well-well done... I declined to have it returned as it still tasted good, but my statement is for general information. Night MOD came by & offered to replace, so no complaint there either.
First wedding anniversary. GREAT service, even better cocktails and wine selection. We both ordered steak, perfectly cooked. We’ll definitely be back.
Had Sunday brunch on the patio. We made our server aware of dietary restrictions, but the menu didn’t clearly specify all items nor did our server assist in guiding us through the menu. Our food was delivered and two of the meals were returned because they contained items that were disclosed as dietary restrictions. Although the food was fixed, half our party had to eat without the other half.
Great people. Great food.
Good food. Good service. Good wine and liquor menu.
A great experience.
