Steak was undercooked then over cooked. Once there was a mistake I couldn’t get service after that. Paid a lot of money for a bad night

Servers didn’t seem to know what was gluten free. They had to keep going back to check. I was concerned about this. It would be helpful for a manager to deliver the food.

Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The service is great, the ambiance as nice as you'd expect an expensive restaurant to be, but I thought the food a little underseasoned. They're known for steak and my steak was great, cooked just how I wanted, but needed some salt. My expectations were very high knowing that dinner was going to end up being a couple of hundred dollars, so Ruth's Chris just gets 4 stars out of 5.

Made reservations for 5 pm...checked in and stood by the bar where the hostess could see us. 5:10 asked if our table was ready...5:20...5:30....people being sat with no reservations. FINALLY at 5:48 after letting them know we were upset, we were sat. Food was okay, nothing to brag about. Definitely wont be back.

When we arrived, we had to wait for 20 minutes while the hostess sat others in front of us. When I asked her about it, she told me they had a reservation. I said I did also and that she ( the restaurant) phoned me that day to confirm the reservations. I said yes we will be there. Which we were on time. I received “ well I didn’t call you” response with an attitude from the hostess. We finally sat down and had to wait for two servers before able to place an order for drinks. We waited 15 minutes for drinks. Needless to say, we were disappointed.

Took my son and his girlfriend for dinner on his birthday. We made the 45 minute drive to the restaurant and arrived for our 8:00 reservations and checked in. We were not seated until almost 8:50. We received our food at almost 10:00 pm. I understand they are busy on Friday nights, but what are resrvations for?

Used the open table app to book a table for 7:00pm at around 6:15 pm. The app secured me a table for 7:15pm and my reservations were complete. Showed up at 7:10pm and was seated right away. The service was phenomenal and the food was delicious.

The main reason we frequented the restaurant several times while in New Orleans was the Executive Chef, Mr. Gibson, who personally talked with my husband and me about our daughter's severe food allergies. He personally prepared her food to ensure she could safely enjoy her meal. She was attending a conference and needed food with no tree nuts, poppy seeds or mango.

In addition the food was of the highest quality and presentation and the service attentive. We felt fortunate to find this restaurant while visiting New Orleans.

We are frequent Ruth's Chris diners but tonight was not our best experience. The steaks were not cooked properly and one of the filets was very fatty! Service was ok, not excellent.

Our waitress was very slow. We would order a drink and not see for 10 minutes. Other tables were eating and leaving while we sat and waited. Since it was my husband’s birthday we splurged on the porterhouse steak. The sirloin side was not edible. There were two strips of gristle running through it. Also we ordered medium rare and it was slightly over cooked.
We eat at Ruth’s often and this is first bad experience we have experienced.
Management did give us a discount but our special occasion was a disappointment.
