    Pricey, but worth it...so bring your appetite so you can savor every bite of the best steak that arrives talking to you from the sizzling plate. BEST SERVICE ever. Joe B. In New Orleans elevates customer service standards to a level above the pre-covid dining experience in a world that has discarded the customer and forgotten service. Thank you, Joe!

    It’s a small location but very busy. Food was good but there was a delay with getting our sides we were practically done eating when of the sides came. But server was nice and in true New Orleans fashion everyone was nice.

    Reservations were 9:15. We weren’t seated until 9:45 minimum. Tons of people were standing outside whose reservations also were running behind. People walked up trying to sell candy to the patrons who were hungry and waiting. The restaurant was very loud while dining. The steak was great. I was not asked if it was cooked to the right temperature as standard. The sides were lukewarm. While I’ve dined this location in the past I’m hesitant to return unless it goes back to the old way.

    Our waiter was excellent! Couldn't ask for better service. The food was yummy. Everyone in our party enjoyed a steak which was cooked perfectly, to order. Two side dishes - asparagus and au gratin potatoes - which were excellent. Would definitely return to this location. This restaurant is off the lobby of the Harrah's hotel. This restaurant was not quiet - lots of energy!

    We had reservations at 5:30 pm and were not seated till 6 pm. Restaurant is clearly understaffed at the moment. Took 15 min to get water, another 10 to get the bread. Cindy was our server and she was fantastic, but clearly had too many tables, at no fault of her own. Food was fabulous as always. Calamari was a little soggier than usual. Chop salad, Caesar Salad and Steaks were perfect. Steak was cooked exactly as ordered and tasted amazing. Of course the cheesecake is always the best thing on the menu :). Dinner took over two hours on a Monday night.

    We enjoyed our 34th wedding anniversary last night at Ruth’s in downtown New Orleans. As usual, the staff was attentive and helpful and the food was outstanding. I had my favorite, the NY strip, which was cooked perfectly and was delicious. My wife had the petite filet and and she loved it. Our sides of roasted Brussel sprouts and potatoes au gratin were great. We split a crème brûlée for dessert. Delicious. I started with a Caesar salad and my wife had the wedge with Bleu cheese, her favorite. We each enjoyed our salads. The ambiance was perfect. Ruth’s is a treat for us. Best steakhouse in the city and the best we’ve ever been too. Pricy but worth it. As good as it gets.

    Stuffed mushroom appetizers were undercooked, lamb chops were ordered medium. The first serving came out well done. After speaking with the waiter the second serving was rare. Service recovery was less than adequate. I was assured that I would not be charged for the improperly cooked entree but was given little additional consideration. In the end, I paid nearly $200 to watch someone else enjoy their meal. I will not be returning to this location.

    Well, where do you start. It certainly isn't the Ruth Chris that we have experienced previously. It was a Tuesday in NOLA and with the workforce shortages many places were not open or fully booked. As we learned on this trip fully booked means as many tables as they could serve - not all tables are serviced at many places. Apps arrived before water on the table and drink order. However crabcakes are still excellent. Cocktails are a very generous size and well prepared. Now for the bad - wife - filet ordered medium rare, me - ribeye ordered same. Filet arrives well done, ribeye - being very kind - medium to medium well. Filet goes back and I try and make my way through the ribeye. Bad idea way over salted (And I'm a salt guy) and the more I cut into the steak the more well done the it appears. New filet arrives extremely rare... UGH - good god can't a "Steak House" cook a damn steak..! Potatoes au gratin were a complete gloppy mess. I was going to give them two stars since the manager came over and saw the steaks not eaten and how poorly prepared they were and took them off the bill. However no other consideration was offered for our ruined night. I was not paying for those steaks either way. Paid the bill and tipped the server what the full tip would have been and departed hungry. I will NEVER eat at another Ruth Chris again. I've eaten many a great meals at other Ruth Chris but a failed evening like this on vacation is completely unacceptable.

    We had a very good dining experience at Ruth's. The service was excellent and the food was great! We did experience a short wait even though we had reservations. Also, I was very disappointed that Ruth's does not comp the parking for guests at night. I will dine at night at the Metairie location from now on.

    The staff at the hostess stand did not even bother to greet us or even acknowledge us and that includes the restaurant managers. We had a reservation and we were seated over 15 min after our reserved time. When seated, no one ever came and introduced themselves to our table. Instead someone randomly came up and asked if we had any questions (odd). Overall the restaurant staff seemed overwhelmed and unorganized. I’m regards to the menu, it does not include normal RC offerings. It is a limited preset menu which is not what we expected. We tried to order an appetizer off of the already limited menu and were told they were out of the item we requested (bbq shrimp). Overall this location does not measure up to a normal Ruth’s Chris; it felt more like an Outback Steakhouse at best. The steaks were good however.

    Not the same restaurant it once was. Prices went up and service went down. The $14 orange water that was called soup lacked flavor. The fries were good but cost $13. Service was slow and when I got my $300 bill I was shocked. I don’t mind paying for a good meal, but this was not that. I should have gone to Doris instead.
