We visited for my birthday this past year for the first time. I was so excited to try it. We ordered salads to start and I found TWO hairs in mine. The rest of the food was good but it was hard to let go of the hair situation. For such an expensive, fine dining place, I would've have expected... More

My parents took us here while in town. It was my first time as I always thought the place was kind of stuffy and overpriced. While not cheap, the food was amazing. The happy hour specials are definitely worth returning for.

My first time to this Ruth Chris. They are all great, but we walked in at a quarter of 10. There was no one else in the restaurant as the last couple walked out as we walked in. The manager and our server Lindsay treated us like the first customers to ever walk in the place. As a former restaurant... More

Alacarte, sure. Expensive, yes. 5-star service? Yes. Worth every penny? Yes. Not an everyday place for po' folk like me - but for major life celebrations and big work parties - you can't beat it. Best steak in my lifetime.

Enjoyed a business presentation at Ruth's this evening and selected the 11 oz filet as my entrée for dinner with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach as my sides. I ordered my steak medium rare and it brought to the table sizzling hot. It was perfect!! The spinach and potatoes were delicious also. I couldn't eat all 11 ozs so I... More

Food good as always, service terribly lacking. Very disappointing wait staff. Plates literally thrown onto the table. We had to beg to get our bottle of wine brought to the table. We were celebrating a birthday. The birthday dessert showed up when we were ready to leave. Crazy bad.

Will start out with a kudos to our server...he was excellent..but he ain't the cook . Having read the book the Gorilla Man and the Empress of Steak I have a good feeling of what the Ruth's experience should be about and that didn't happen 12/29/16. Wife and I had dinner about 8ish ...almost a full house ...we ate relatively... More

Dined with a party of 6. We went on a Friday night and the restaurant was very busy. Server was friendly and got our order correct, but it took 45 minutes after we ordered to get our food. Our server kept disappearing. I know she had other tables, but we had to wait too long for refills and other needs.... More

Great service and food. Best steaks in lafayette. My personal favorite is the filet, but you should ask waiter to have kitchen cut you a center cut. It's best. Fried lobster appetizer is good too. Think lunch is only on Friday, but dinner is awesome and every night.
