We had a 9 pm reservation. We were able to be seated around 9:35 . We waited over 20 minutes to get our ice tea and water. Our waiter informed us the were out of most appetizers. Everyone eating around us seemed miserable and it looked like they all had been there for a long time. At that point we decided it would be best if f we went somewhere else.

I have been a customer of Ruth’s in New Orleans since the 1970’s. Everything has always been top notch. Last night started great with an amazing hostess with a excellent attitude. Unfortunately we we were seated in the back room of the restaurant and things went south from there… the table for two was uneven and wobbly. The place settings included a fork and steak knife on one side and a butter knife on the other. We ordered cocktails, which ultimately took 15-20 minutes to receive. Soon after we ordered an appetizer and salad. After a while both arrived almost simultaneously. We still did not have the proper silverware, which took 3 requests. We also asked for bread on 3 occasions. We pre ordered house Cabernet with our steaks. When our main courses were brought out we were informed the house cab was unavailable and were offered a substitute, which arrived as we finished. Finally, our water glasses were never refilled over the entire evening and sat empty. The food was delicious as usual, but the service was lackluster at best and I believe our server was distracted and surely had too much going on to offer the standard of service expected at Ruth’s. When the bill came, I noticed the two glasses of wine totaled $50, which was more than double the price of the house. I asked the server about it and she said she would check with her manager. After a lengthy wait he returned with a new check and said he gave us a credit for the difference. That was all. No apology. We never saw our server or any fo the wait staff again. The service was unacceptable and embarrassed me in front of my guest. Covid, hurricane or whatever if you can’t provide excellent service at this caliber of restaurant, it’s a problem.

We went there to watch the Saints game. The noise level was appropriate for the game everyone there had a wonderful time. The bartenders Larry and Pete were awesome!!! After a suggestion from one of the guests, I actually tried a new drink and it was awesome. The name of that drink was a side car!! I would definitely go again and definitely recommend Ruth’s Chris.

Having been patron of Ruth's Chris restaurants all over the country for a number of years, I have grown to expect a certain level of service at their restaurants. My experience Friday night sorely missed the mark. Aside from the waitress who was probably trying to cover too many tables, even the "house manager" was less than concerned with the problems with our meal including, but not limited to my pregnant daughter in law's steak, which she ordered "medium well" being more rare than my "medium rare" ordered steak. Also, while the hostess was vigilant about verifying vaccine status, a number of the weight staff were not wearing their masks as required. Absolutely disappointing experience.

Ryan our waiter was great! The place was busy so there were greater wait times than usual on food and drinks but he kept us informed every step of the way. Food was great as usual. I tried the Brussels for the first time instead of the spinach and I was not disappointed.

We waited 45 minutes and never got a table! We got there early and they never gave us a table! Reservation didn’t help here. It’s like we didn’t have one! We ended up sitting at the bar at 9:15. When we got to the bar they told us they would try to serve us but that the kitchen was closing !Thank god for a friendly bartender! He saved the night.

We will never go here again, poor service, terrible attitude by the staff. They don’t care if you eat or starve! Stay away until the pandemic is over. Maybe they’ll get some workers who care!

Ruth’s is always a no brainer for my girls and I. We do birthdays, New Years Eve every single year, and just because dinners. We always have a good ole time. Well this time was just awful we had reservations for 8:45 I believe but were seated to around 9:30 for a reservation for two. After Checking with 3 separate people at the service counter we were finally seated. Our waiter was cool but after ordering our appetizer it was sent to the next table and we never got a replacement order. I ordered the usual stuffed chicken with creamed spinach, and a steak house salad with a margarita. My friend ordered steak with a salad and a dirty martini. My salad came out but my friends didn’t after letting them know my chicken came out and so did my friends steak still no salad. Buy this time, the time had rolled and I was ready for another margarita but they said the bar was closing. We asked about my friends salad again and he said they were short staffed and that the kitchen was now closed. He somehow got someone to make me a margarita but my friend couldn’t get another martini. So she was forced to have steak with no side or another drink. The manager then comes out to apologize and said she would make it right by calling me next week which never happened. She gave us her card but I kinda wanted to forget about it and give her time to make it right. But it’s our favorite spot and I wish they will make it right like promised. I paid the bill in full and generously tipped our waiter. But no call or rectification has happened since. I am so dissatisfied with the service we received from a place we spend so much money in. And when management promised to call and make it right she didn’t they could have at least comped my over $100 bill for the awful service we received. Shame on you Ruth’s please do better we love it here.

We absolutely loved Irene’s. We were a half an hour early and they were more than accommodating. Started with a complimentary bruschetta which was scrumptious. I had the creole soup and my husband had the crab augratin. Both highly recommended. For our entrees I had the sole muniere and my husband had the cioppino. Omg could it get any better? We loved every minute. A table of 6 were very loud but it was toned down when they were served their food. I gave them an A+++
