The food was good - the lobster Mac and cheese was not as good as usual (?)

No butter available at 1st - but shortly thereafter

Probably should suggest bottle price on wine - my 3 glasses > ?

Our only issue was the wait. We understand that it was a holiday; however, a 76 mini Ute wait, with a reservation, compromised our itinerary for the reminder of the evening. Ryan was wonderful!

Service was great at the beginning and became non-existent during the meal until it was time to pay the check. The meal was good but the porterhouse was tough and under cooked. Overall, my family enjoyed our meal. I think Ruths’ is understaffed like everywhere else.

Our table was literally 1 ft if not less from another table. I could hear their entire conversation the whole time. This was our anniversary dinner, which y’all knew ahead of time. This was far from romantic in any way. We had to basically yell so that we could hear each other over the conversation right next to us. There were many other tables in the restaurant that weren’t right against others. I feel that if y’all knew this was a special occasion, another table should have been offered. I felt like I had basically gone out to eat with the couple next to us. Super disappointed. Food was great, server was great…will return but not for an anniversary dinner.

Never had a bad experience before at any Ruth Chris Steakhouse’s, but will most likely never eat at the New Orleans location again, had reservations still had to wait, were out of everything we first ordered , was only asked once if we wanted a drink, was almost impossible to get a second drink, table for two we were seated at was very crowded no room for two people eating, server did not check on us to see if everything is ok

I have dined at numerous Ruth Chris Steak Houses across the US and was looking forward to hosting a business dinner in the home of the original restaurant. What a disappointment. Upon arrival (ten minutes before our reservation time), the host area resembled a Denny's restaurant on a busy Saturday night rather than the higher end establishment Ruth Chris is. While having three people staffing the front of the restaurant, not one of them seemed interested in greeting or informing anyone entering. People milled around not knowing what to do or where to go and the more people arriving, the more new people thought there was a line or some sort of order and the crowd continued to grow. I approached the host stand immediately upon arrival, confirmed my reservation and was told we would be called in 10 minutes. I watched as reservations were called from behind the host stand in a voice so low and the waiting group so loud, the group being called never heard their name. I continued to check with the host stand and forty after I was told my table would be ready in 10 minutes, we were called. The noise level in the restaurant was so loud, you had to yell across your table to be heard, not the best environment for a business dinner. We were seated and our waiter stopped by and told us he would be right back. 30 minutes later I grabbed another waiter and asked that we at least get some water. Five minutes later our original waiter stopped by, without water, to tell us he was busy. Ten minutes later he came back with menus and our water and also got our drink orders. Twenty minutes later he finally came back for our orders, our food came in a timely fashion and was as great as usual. He came back once to check on us. I had to flag down another waiter to ask our waiter for our check. My advice is that if you want great food in a sports bar atmosphere that is extremely loud with a minimal level of service, this is the Ruth's Chris location for you.

The food as always was excellent!! But they just don’t treat their guests like You get at other Ruth’s locations. The hostess treated us like a bother. We had a 9:45pm reservation and we weren’t seated until 10:15. Then they sat us by the kitchen. Our server didn’t take our order for another 20 mins. I asked for bernaise sauce and never got it.. then they started trying to kick us by raising the lights out before we had even received a check! The food is always really good… but this location doesn’t value their clients!

When we first arrived, the place was a mess because of lack of staff. The shift changed and the place cleaned up quickly. One of our favorite bartenders showed up (Larry), and the evening kept getting better. Our appetizer order (crab cakes)was extremely late and to accommodate us Brandon and Kayla brought out another order. Way to go!!!! The cowboy ribeye, au’gratin potatoes, and asparagus was to die for!! To put the icing on the cake, the cheesecake was fabulous. We had a great time as usual.

Beautiful restaurant. They sat us in a odd spot near a very loud table which impacted the atmosphere a little.

Crab cakes were incredible.

Make sure you ask for a wine list as there are more wines than what you see on the main menu.

We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

It was after the Saints game so it was understandably a little loud and we did have to wait 30 minutes past our reservation, but as always it was totally worth it. The food was exceptional as always. From the apps to the drinks to the salads to the main course, wine and desserts....nothing was less than wonderful. Even the server, who was enjoying his first day on his own working there was TOP NOTCH. Exceptional.. about our 50th time at a Ruth's Chris and definitely won't be the last, God willing.

Our waiter Joe B was excellent, our food was excellent. The creamed spinach was probably the best I have ever had. However, the noise level was horrific. Do not go here on a Sunday when the Saints are playing if you want a relaxing dinner where you can talk to your table mates. Even hours after the Saints game was over it was still a sports bar atmosphere.

Overall one of the worst experiences I have had at Ruths.. first out of main dishes when arrived. Order a large filet had to throw away have that was nothing but gristle / pieces of cartilage, not fat, that were not edible.
Biggest problem was at end of night they said the credit card machine was down and wanted me to write down my card details on back of receipt so they could charge me later. I would NEVER do this any surprised they asked me to do this.. several other tables looked shocked they did not have a back up in place. I never carry much cash with me.. and basically had to use all I had to pay bill which ruined the rest of my night.

We got lucky to be seated in a quiet back corner, since the bar is quite loud. Service was excellent (Ryan). Food was mostly the usual level of excellence that we've come to expect, though the steaks lacked the tenderness that we usually see. Still a great meal.
