“Great service, apps but weak wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We met for team drinks and food before heading out to dinner. We as a team always go to steak places and just wanted to grab some apps and some wine. The wine list is pretty weak for such an upscale restaurant. (The person i was with is a wine distributor and mentioned it also). I had the Veal Osso Bucco Ravioli's which were tremendous. The Calamari was ok and a little mushy. The outdoors patio was great and the weather was tremendous to sit outside.

“Excellent steak and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

After having lunch and dinner at several restaurants in New Orleans, we appreciate the professionalism of the employees at Ruth's. They are knowledgeable and helpful, contributing to a comfortable dining atmosphere. They’re friendly, but they are too busy to mingle. My wife and I split a petite filet which was done perfectly. The meat was tender and juicy. Our son ordered a rib eye which he proclaimed to be delicious because it was not heavily spiced up. The side dishes were also very much to our taste. Our sweet potato and oecan casserole went well with the filet. Some might consider the brown sugar crust a bit too sweet, but we liked it. Our son had creamed spinach which he said was excellent. Each of us was able to find a wine-by-the-glass of our choice that was reasonably priced. My wife found a very sweet moscato, which is comparatively unusual. We all had creme brulee, which was good. Ruth's provides a large shallow dish of creme brulee with very fresh fruit. The whole dinner was delicious and very satisfying. The service was the best we experienced at any restaurant in New Orleans. We feel Ruth's Chris Steak House is better than reviewers’ evaluations indicate.

“A 4* out of 5* Ruth's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I ate with 10-12 business associates and for the most part everything was excellent including the service. The only knock I have is that my filet was just above average. I may have just gotten the bad steak of the group as no one else seemed to dislike theirs, but about 1/4 of my filet had fatty parts to it which kind of shocked me being this was the 3rd or 4th Ruth's I've eaten at and never had this happen before.

“Way overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Sat outside and the staff kept kicking my chair as they went by with no apology. Steaks were good. Bbq shrimp ok. Drinks twice as much as other places. Beer 8 and martinis 16. Sides large enough to share with a group.

“Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

For lunch -- Excellent steak and family-style sides to share. Try the House Chop Salad, Potatoes Au Gratin and the 6 oz. Petit Filet.
