Very fancy restaurant compared to where we normally eat. The food was good, but for a $55 steak I'd expect at least a baked potato to come with it for the price. Highly recommend the lobster mac & cheese. Complimentary valet.

the explanation for our disappointing meal could be with having a waiter that was not well trained, or the possibility management was absent from this Sunday evening, but truly it has to be with the overall indifference exhibited by the staff. this was a birthday celebration for my very active 86 year old father and his new wife.

From the minute we arrived to minute we left, my cousin and I were treated like royalty. And since we were not dressed like royalty, that is the mark of a class act. The food. I had the petite filet, and it was cooked to perfection. So juicy and tender! The lava cake. Oh, the lava cake. Ricardo, our waiter,... More

Perfection from beginning to end. I had the two lobster tail entree from the winter menu which was perfectly prepared. My husband had the filet mignon, also perfectly prepared. Service provided by Vanessa Cortez was extraordinary, way above and beyond. Vanessa was attentive from minute one until we left the restaurant. My husband loves his sweet tea and always had... More

My boyfriend took me here for Valentine's Day! This was my first time to Ruth Chris Steak House. I do not adventure out with my severe food allergens.

I dined on the fillet mignon, steak house mashed potatoes, and had the mushroom soup (which had pureed mushrooms-very good) and had the chocolate cheesecake mousse and bread pudding (which was also extremely good).

They call Ruth’s Chris founder Ruth Fertel, the First Lady of American Restaurants. But before there were 130+ locations serving 25,000 steaks a day, there was a fearless single mother of two who tore an ad from the local newspaper that read “steak house for sale” and thought, “I can do that”. The year was 1965. It’s a great American story of how one person- a woman, at a time and in a business dominated by men took an idea and made it sing. What Ruth lacked in experience she made up in hard work. But it wasn’t just sixteen – hour days that made her steakhouse an icon. Ruth had the divinely simple, yet uncommonly magical way of touching people with genuine kindness- the way food and love and people just fit together in her hometown of New Orleans where the legend was born. in 1976, there was fire at the original Chris’ Steak House, destroying the restaurant and leaving Ruth in a difficult situation. But Ruth was smart, and she learned to trust her instincts. Ruth plowed forward and within seven days she was back in business in a new location just four blocks away on Broad Street in New Orleans. Tired of guests calling her Chris but not wanting to lose to loyal customer base who knew the restaurant by it’s longtime name, Ruth renamed her restaurant “Ruth’s Chris Steak House”…and the rest is history.
