Big improvement from 10 years ago. Food & service was excellent. But the lone little steak on the plate needed to have at least a garnish, if not accompanied by a side. A great treat. Best celebration venue for a special event!!

Took 1.5 hours to get our food. Our waiter Evette was outstanding. Lobster Mac was cold, plate for steak broke and further delayed our service, lettuce wedge was good.
Cowboy ribeye was tough but was cooked medium as requested. Weak value for the money.

Food quality was good as usual. Servers were unavailable for the majority of the evening. We had an 8 pm seating and the restaurant was not terribly crowded but after our initial food and drink orders, the table was left unattended and we had to flag down random Ruth’s Chris team members to get wine refills and food service.

Wife’s birthday and our anniversary celebration. Steaks were undercooked. We also had a steak there about a month ago and it was over cooked. Inconsistent and unworthy of the cost.

We eat at Ruths Chris restaurants around the world. This is our first time in Lafayette and it was exquisite. The menu is similar to other Ruths Chris menus but the food preparation for service the wine and the whole experience was fantastic.
