Ruffino’s on the River
Wonderful evening in the bar
Great food and drinks but food service and waiter were extremely slow. Only checked on us one or 2 times and had to wait 20+ minutes to get check. Overall a fine and good experience just much slower service than usual.
Always 5⭐️!!! Phenomenal Food, Ambiance & Service!!
We had a table outside overlooking the river, which is our favorite place to sit at this restaurant. There was a nice breeze so it was really enjoyable. We only get a few weekends to dine outside in May before summer heat kicks in so we relished it. Food matched our expectations as well so it was a 5-star experience.
We were just excited to have dinner at our restaurant since this quarantine!! It was just wonderful!! The food and Service were excellent!!
The only issues we had was the limited menu and not having a throw away wine list. The web site was difficult and never able to get the wine list. The ambiance was great, the complimentary dessert was excellent. Our entrees were delicious.
Great atmosphere; one of our favorite restaurants and always a memorable experience.
Perfect way to come back inside to eat! We had a great meal and service.
We just went to dinner, our wait staff was wonderful. Caleb, Cadence, and Vivek were on top of things!! The girls in front are always nice and helpful!!
Amazing food and service! Very pricey and I dont think it should have cost so much.
Excellent place to dine.
To celebrate a birthday. The steaks 2 of us ordered were really bad. The fish dish and crab cheese cake were very good. Service staff was nice.
Food and service excellent as usual. Always enjoy an evening at Ruffino’s.
A wonderful restaurant for those special events. 👍👍👍👍👍
Good place. Nice ambiance. Went for my birthday. Had a good meal.
Surpringly poor food, especially for a town that prides itself on good food. Some food was extremely salty - and the soup was very bland. Desert was OK - but certainly not special.
Talking to friends later they supposed our negative experience.
The food was absolutely delicious and very fair priced. Service was outstanding and very quick! Great atmosphere will definitely be back!
Good service, excellent food.
Celebrated an anniversary and having frequented Ruffino's in Baton Rouge, we thought we'd give this one a try. We arrived earlier than our reservation time, but were seated immediately. The water was the first thing delivered, followed by their wonderful bread. Our waiter, Brad soon followed and took our order. The 8 oz. filet was cooked to perfection and the service was fantastic! Having asked if we were celebrating anything when we arrived, at the end of the meal, Brad brought us a complimentary slice of chocolate fudge with raspberry drizzle with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate. I had read some reviews previously that were less than flattering. However, I am happy to report that our experience was excellent.
Always good dependable
Have had multiple meals at Ruffino's. Food quality is always great and service is as well. Highly recommend.
Always a wonderful dining experience!
Always great to eat at Ruffinos and always great good!
Food probably 20 or so people. Because of that, much too noisy. When I have date night with my hubby, I want to be able to talk to one another.
Gres food great service all around great place to eat a little pricey bit well worth it
Excellent meal and service!!!
Nice location...eat out all over the country..,was wanting a bayou culinary experience. It was ok...for the price.
This was our first time here and we’ll definitely be back for a special occasion. The food was delicious and the wine selection was great. The bread and olive oil/balsamic vinegar before dinner was perfect and the cotton candy after dinner was icing on the cake! Highly recommend for a special occasion!
Ruffinos food was delicious. The waitstaff was very attentive and helpful. They were also accommodating enough to change my reservation the morning of without any fuss! Highly recommend.
Consistent. One of best restaurants in Lafayette!
Everything was great! Servers were fantastic and attentive. The rice was undercooked but it happened to several tables and they replaced it without issue.
Great place to go on special occasions. Too pricey for frequent dining.
Everything was great! Drinks, food, & service! We will surely be back! The choc covered strawberries and mystery envelope were a nice touch.
Good service and food drinks are overpriced
Crab tower is good
Top Lafayette restaurant
We visit Ruffino’s Often because it’s a favorite, however, Saturday nights service was way off the norm. It took 20 minutes to get acknowledged once we sat down to our table (which our reservation was at 7:45 and we didn’t sit until 8:10)
Service was slow, never saw our main server and skipped dessert and wanted out of there.
I said I would recommend your restaurant but only based on our first experience, this was our second visit. This Sunday January 20th was not so good. The bread with egg benedick my wife had was hard, seemed it wasn't so fresh, my niece had the grits and shrimp and it was more soup with grits. The service was okay and we may try it again, but with some hesitation. Sorry I couldn't give you a five star.
