Great atmosphere for dining, good service, attentive and polite. The osso bucco was a little dry, and not as delicious as expected - probably because our reservation was for 8:00 and it was getting old. Swordfish was a little too salty and overcooked. The food was somewhat dissappointing, since my expectations were primed for excellence. Sorry, we have had better meals at Ruffino's in the past.
My wife and I both ordered 2 appetizers that were excellent. For our main course she had the Filet, while I chose the Ribeye.
Both steaks were cooked to perfection and I was floored by their homemade Worcestershire sauce.
Two very satisfied customers.
First-class establishment with great food and service.
This was the third time and I won’t be going back. It was even worst this time
Main waiter never came back after he took order. You would think with so many waiters per table , they could get something right
This model does not work for me or them
My daughters steak was overcooked and I don’t know what happened to my veal
It is a beautiful place but needs management and oversight
Food was good, but a little hit or miss in the seasonings. Pork cheeks were phenomenal. Brussels sprouts were missing something, and although roasted came out a little soggy and lukewarm. Wine glass smelled like dirty dishwater. I asked for another and same issue. Lamb chop special was good but didn’t wow me. And the cappuccino was not cappuccino at all: no froth and cold. It was so bad we actually laughed. Ambiance was nice and the music level/lighting was spot on. Service was good.
Food was not even average we couldn’t identify what we ordered. Chicken Parm was like rubber.
We chose Ruffino's for our Wedding Anniversary and they did not let us down. The entire experience was really great and we would definitely recommend Ruffino's to anyone.
Delicious food. Superior service. Perfect for a celebration
Great place for date night. Friendly staff with excellent service. A little quick to pick up items we were working on from the table but we had multiple servers in training and they were all great. It was an anniversary to remember
Location, ambience, service was great. Skip is a 🌟 star.
Food was good. Overall great experience.
Service great some of the food was not as good as it had been previously. Overlooked. Maybe a bad night. Watch this please used to be excellent.
Our waters were not kept full, steak was over cooked, they forgot one of our sides, and never brought out one of the desserts. Worse experience I have had at Ruffino’s and makes me question if I will try again.
The staff was friendly, knowledgable, and responsive. Everything was absolutely perfect and delicious.
You guys are consistent. Good food good service.
Didnt mind spending when team knew menu, gave reccomendations and were extra courteous.
Ill be back.
The service of Javon, Austin and Logan (I think) was amazing. It was my boyfriend first time being there and he loved it. The food was amazing and they went out of their way for our celebration. I cannot wait to bring him back for a Sunday Brunch.
The service and food were excellent. Unfortunately the food delivered to our table was not what we had ordered. We did get what we ordered a few minutes later and was excellent. A little mixup but still enjoyed the restaurant very much. I will definitely go back.
Great food and service!
Excellent service team throughout dinner. Tasty offerings. The dessert, a brownie with a ginger ice cream was simply stunning. They could have and should have cut it into two portions....but we managed to ensure there was none left ;)
My wife and I enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the restaurant.
I'd recommend and return to Ruffino's. Sitting out on the porch is my favorite way to enjoy my dining experience.
The service was really kind and really nice
Excellent food & service. Will recommend to friends and family. Will be back!
The food was so divine and the service was outstanding! I would totally go back soon. And it’s also so cool to have cotton candy after the meal. Love this restaurant!
Great atmosphere, service, and food. We enjoyed the experience.
Love the team of waiters. They were very attentive and fun.
My family went for a nice lunch after church and we all enjoyed our time. Our servers were Amazing and the food was excellent!! This was our second time and will for sure be back.
This is one of my favorite restaurants EVER!(The crabmeat cheesecake is my The quality of food is outstanding and the attentive service is top-notch! Ruffino's is a 5-star restaurant with elegant dining that still feels like comfort. Never once have I felt out of place and the staff always seems knowledgeable and sincere. I'm a regular hard working mother and from time-to-time it feels great to spoil myself with luxury dining, this is the place!!
I made a reservation online for 7 people. It asked if it was a certain occasion. It was a Birthday and I added that to the reservation.
Food was excellent; however I was very disappointed for 2 things:
They did not include my request for a birthday occasion.
We did not get cotton candy. Do we have to ask for that?
I live in Lake Charles and traveled to Lafayette/Ruffino's as that is my favorite restaurant. I was very disappointed in the overall experience.
Great experience professional staff.
Great experience! The evening flowed very well between drinks, appetizers, and entrees. The server was social but not overbearing. Food was incredible as were the drinks! Will definitely return!
The service was horrible. It took almost 30 minutes to get a glass of wine. During that time, no one checked on us or took an appetizer order. The ambiance is wonderful and the food is pretty good but for the price I expect much better service.
our server was awesome! she has been our server twice now and is always kind, patient and funny!
All good. Friendly service. Great tasting food
We had a great time as usual! And the food was amazing as usual!!! And we absolutely enjoyed the entertainment! Couldn't have asked for a better evening!!
Great dinner. Service & food was awesome as usual. Always enjoy dining at Ruffinos.
As always, the food was outstanding and the service was superb. We had the ribeye and the pork Tchoupitoulas. Both were cooked perfectly, and my buddy’s crab meat sauce was heavenly. Not for every night, but never disappointing.
We went to celebrate our 27th anniversary and it was great! From the waiter to the desert was absolutely amazing! Love going there!
We enjoy Ruffino's on the River each time we go! The food is great, the service efficient and friendly and the feel is comfortable!
RUFFINO'S WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. CELEBRATED OUR ANNIVERSARY. TABLE SEATING WAS AWESOME,SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. ALL AROUND GREAT ATMOSPHERE AND EXPERIENCE. WOULD DINE THERE AGAIN AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
