Ruth’s Chris is my all-time classic favorite restaurant, I’ve been going to Ruth’s Chris back when it was on Broad Street in New Orleans. Love it for any occasion any holiday or season. Never can get tired of the steaks and foods at Ruth’s Chris. The service is always top notch.

After 30 minutes past my reservation time, I finally asked the hostess how far out we were from being seated. After another 20 minutes she said she could seat me at a high top in the crowded and noisy bar area. That would be the best she could do at that time. I expected alot more out of a place like Ruth’s.

The food on this visit was probably the best we've had at Ruth's Chris ever. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Drinks were excellent. The sweet potato souffle was heavenly. Creamed Spinach was perfect. The butternut squash soup was delicious too. The atmosphere was festive, too, which was perfect for the occasion. This was a Saints game day playoff day, and everyone in the restaurant were fans, which suited us perfectly, as fellow Saints fans!
However, the dessert we ordered, banana cream pie, wasn't available with the crust, as usual, and there was a delay in serving dessert to our table of 4, as this was a problem, that our servers evidently didn't know about. Anyway, the dessert was ok. There had been another problem with another selection, as well. I would say that at a restaurant such as this, the servers should've been informed about shortages in items on the menu. And I'm sure they knew it would be a very busy Sunday with the game.
As such, I'd still go again. We eat here at least once a year, and very much enjoyed lunch yesterday. The ambiance was perfect, and the food was exceptional!

We eat at Ruth’s all the time but this was not good. We had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. My filet was full of fat throughout. I never complain at a restaurant, but it was inedible. The waiter quickly got another one for me, but it was also full of fat and cooked well done (I ordered medium). I cut a few bites and there was a piece of plastic inside. I was too embarrassed to complain again so i took it to go. It was very disappointing. The potatoes were also bland. I will likely not go back to the downtown location again.

We had to wait about 30 min past our reservation. The women’s restroom needed attention. The steak was heavily seasoned and not anything special. Crab cakes were tasty. Mashed potatoes were cold because the restaurant was quite cool.

Had booked the day before for 8pm. Got there early to find the place in pandemonium with the maître D unable to manage the seating. But management gave us the wine because of the wait which was very nice of them. Great dinner in NOLA in the end

We love Ruth’s Chris and it has been a staple of our family for years at home and when traveling. However, this experience may change it all.

The host staff was dishonest and disrespectful. They consistently told patrons that it would be <15 min. We were told this 4 times and were seated almost 1 hour after our reservation time. When we walked through the restaurant to our table, over 1/2 of the tables were unoccupied on Dec 30 in New Orleans. Many of the tables had dirty dishware in them. No one was cleaning the tables.

When we were finally seated, it took >45 min to get bread to the table. The steaks took longer. After we finished, the waitstaff didn’t even ask about dessert until we asked. The they brought out the wrong dessert wine. The dessert itself was great but took 42 min to come out after ordering.

Many people had similar experiences this day. If this does not correct itself, the restaurant will not survive despite being in the town in which it originated.

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse is a tried and true favorite. Our reservation got screwed up (my default is 2 and we were 3. I changed it but it reverted to 2). Instead of waiting an hour for a table, we asked to be seated outside, this the low ambience score. It was quieter than inside but no tablecloths, everything was damp and the iron chairs were very uncomfortable. Food was good as usual. Our waiter, Jimmy did a great job, checked on us often even though the kitchen was slow, we enjoyed people watching.

A reservation was made 2 weeks in advance for 12/30/18 @ 6:45. We checked in at 6:00 p.m. We checked the hostess stand 3 times, but were not seated until 8:30 p.m. We have come to this restaurant for my birthday for the last 5 years. We will no longer dine here.
