Whenever I'm in New Orleans, I make reservations at Ruth’s Chris. It’s tradition. This most recent visit is the first time I received horrible service.

-I sat at the bar and was served by two women-- one I presume was in training (although that was never mentioned).
- My food arrived, and I waited for 4 minutes before I could get her attention to get silverware
- I had to request more water multiple times
- I ordered a margarita, and my cup was taken without being asked if I wanted another.
- Any request (for salt & pepper, more water, or anything was met with silent disdain)
- The final straw was when I asked to speak to a manager. I told the manager about my experience, and the manager not only made excuses, stating that both employees were new and overwhelmed (they were not as I watched them have conversations in the corner) he also went back and told her. My server then stopped talking to me. It was such a huge turnoff! As I looked at the experience other patrons had at the bar by the male server; it was a completely different experience. New servers or not, as a paying customer, I deserve at a bare minimum attentiveness and respect.

Hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

We are very frequent visitors to the location and normally LOVE RCS. This particular visit was subpar. The service was stellar as per usual but the food was severely lacking. My sea bass was saturated in butter or something of the sort. Our mashed potatoes had large chunks of uncooked potato. My original water glass had lip marks. We are certain it was just this time and will give the another shot, we love them!

We usually go to Biloxi. We realize it was a busy time. Our waiter was great. The bar service was not good and our 2 drinks were awful. It appeared that the bar person was not experienced. I guess help is hard to find. Everything was good except our filets were way over cooked. Lobster was delicious. We would recommend the lobster Mac and cheese. We will always go back.

I think this was the best steak I have ever eaten. I had the Petit Filet and it was fabulous and perfectly prepared. The Caesar salad is also outstanding. Great atmosphere - not stuffy yet opulent.

You Can NEVER get ahold of a person at the restaurant if you need to change the reservation. You only get the answering machine and CANNOT leave a message because their answering machine is full. Extremely disappointed with the lack of customer service and trying to get ahold of someone after you already charged my credit card. NEED some training and looking in to how things are run.

Way too loud of music, cannot even talk to each other without yelling.

Do not go here. Awful experience for what is supposed to be a nicer restaurant. We didn’t get sat until about 30 minutes after our reservation time and then it was over 20 minutes sitting at our table with no contact from the server or anyone. I got up and let a sever know we had been waiting…he proceed to fill water glasses for another table that was sat after us. After almost an hour after our original reservation time we just got up and left to get dinner somewhere else. -
Lights flickering, music too loud, poor service…can’t comment on the food because we didn’t get any. Negative 5 stars, 4 thumbs down and worst dinning experience I’ve had in New Orleans. I hope a manager reads this.

Service was a bit slow, but waiter was friendly. Steaks and sides were good but cheese cake desert came out frozen he did substitute it for bread pudding which was half warm half cold. Not up to the normal Ruth Chris standards.
