My date and I were seated at a tables at the very back of the restaurant. The server never came to our rave to check k on us . We saw him to take our order , and when we had finished eating .
I have been to this location several times and I have never experienced such terrible service.

The overall experience was fantastic. My husband and I went for our anniversary and enjoyed every moment. The filet was the best that I’ve ever had. The wait staff was attentive to our every need. Would definitely recommend!! Went during restaurant week and got a great 3 course meal at an unbelievable price.

We had a very relaxing and delicious meat at Ruth's celebrating my 66th birthday. The servers were fantastic and catered to our every needs. Even the new young server in training did very well taking instructions and handling his tasks professionally. I'm a New Orleans lifer and to add to our great night Irma Thomas and her husband Emile who we both cordial and knew just about everyone at the restaurant. We are looking forward to our next celebration at Ruth's!

Everything was absolutely delicious except the strawberry shortcake. The cake part was pretty dry with not much flavor except the super sweet strawberry sauce.
My filet though was delicious!!

Been to many Ruth’s aground the country over the years and their experience always meets a standard you can predict. Not this time to my surprise. The waiter bordered on rude. He was busy working the bigger tables he had and we were a table of two. He hardly explained the specials, left drinks un refilled, did not check on food quality and did not even say thank you!

It’s been hit or miss lately. I do believe in giving u guys more chances because I’ve had better experience than worse. One time we waited like an hour for our food so we left. We still had to pay for our apps too. So i came Sunday again with my girls, Jacques was the server. We were sat way at the back near all the ruckus of folks setting of for some event. Fruit fly got in my wine. I told server about it and he was like oh ok. Told the manager and he was like yea we’re calling pest control tomorrow. A replacement would have been nice and then i would just kept the next glass covered.
Anyway, Jacques is a sweet guy but i dont feel is can handle the fast paced environment and also multi tasking. There was a large party of about 8-10 folks and he focused on them more than me and my girls. I never complained because he was older and didn’t wanna make him feel uncomfortable. Mashed potatoes came out cold too. Dang.....

This was the worst experience I have ever had a a Ruth’s Chris, and I go to them often and in multiple cities. First we waited 20 minutes to learn the seafood tower we ordered could not be served because the chef was unhappy with the quality of the seafood. Then I ordered a filet and it was literally a ball of fat! I had to send it back. The waitstaff and management were all quite below par when you think about a traditional experience at Ruth’s Chris. Honestly this location was on par with an Applebee’s - nice but nothing special and over priced for what you get. The one thing I will say is the sweet potato casserole was as always incredible! Kills me to write a negative review about a restaurant I usually love! New Orleans has a lot of neat stuff to see and do, but I would pass on this Ruth’s Chris!

As a frequent guest of Ruth’s Chris restaurants in other cities, I was very excited to experience the Ruth’s Chris in New Orleans. So I had high expectations going in..... and I’m happy to say the food didn’t disappoint. However, that is where my good review ends. I had read many reviews before selecting this restaurant for a birthday dinner and many of them noted an issue with service. And indeed that was our experience as well. Our server gave one person in our party the wrong meal but that person didn’t complain even though we were charged more for the wrong meal. So ok I do not blame the restaurant for that as we should have notified our server of the mistake...... but the problem was we could not actually find our server and the person in our party just decided to go ahead and eat the meal and we paid the additional expense. One of our appetizers, which was soup, was barely warm and when our side dishes arrived with our entrees, it was clear they had been sitting awhile. Again, our server was not to be found to advise of the cold side dishes. We had ordered the Ruth’s Classics meals which came with dessert. At the end of our meal, our server notified us that they had run out of dessert and were offering to substitute and the substitute dessert was not something anyone at our table wanted though it was supposed to be included. One person did ask for the substitute dessert which never arrived. To make matters worse, the server brought a special dessert for the person celebrating their birthday and we were actually changed for that dessert even though we never ordered it. Getting our bill took more than 20 minutes. Then bill was to be split between two couples but our server miscalculated the correct amount for each and one person was overcharged. I have to say that the very disappointing service really took away from a nice evening. I would be happy to discuss this with restaurant management.

Dinning room was delightful. Service was quick until the end. Dropped ball at dessert and check time. Porterhouse steak for two was delicious but disappointingly chewy. Would get filet next time. Side dishes very good. Did not think barbecue shrimp appetizer was adequate with 6 very small shrimp. Valet parking was easy. All ‘n All an Enjoyable dinner.

For the first time ever, my food was horrible. The steak was undercooked and a third of my filet was fat. This was our of the usually for Ruth’a Chris. I showed the server and nothing was done about it. I was full anyway but who wants 1/3 of a steak going to waste???

I made a reservation while we were visiting New Orleans for work. I have been to other Ruth's Chris' restaurants in Vegas, Denver and Scottsdale and loved it all. Unfortunately that wasn't the case this time. Our dinner started off great with the waiter taking our order, but when the main entree came out it was a mess. The two employees trying to figure out who had what was not our original waiter and it literally took over 10 minutes to figure out who had what. By that time all our sides were extremely cold and that was disappointing. I ordered a small filet that is on the special menu and I had asked for well done, no pink and I received a very rare steak (which was most likely someone else's at my table). I sent it back and asked for well done and they brought it back a 2nd time still very pink so I had to send back again. When I did get my steak if was finally done, but all my friends were already finishing up their entrees. The overall food is always good here, but eating the sides cold wasn't. For the price we paid - which was over $1100 with tip, our experience should have been much better. I was embarrassed because I raved about Ruth's Chris to my coworkers who had never been and they were very disappointed.

I love your steakhouse. It is always guaranteed to please the taste buds. The food quality is far beyond most restaurants. Would eat at the restaurant more if I lived closer to one.

This was my first time ever visiting Ruth’s Chris and I must say I am very much pleased with the service and quality of food. Everything was up too par and the waiter even made my daughter a hamburger from the lunch menu because it was her birthday, after they had informed us that it was a lunch item only he still went ahead and made it for her. The time was very much appreciated there and well worth every penny.
