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...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...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!!...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...More

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...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...More

It's pretty pricey. $18 starters, $40 entrees, but there is a $50 special three course meal, I think. I went to a special champagne pairing dinner and loved it.
I would like to know the prices of the menu items, or if you have to ask you probably can't afford eating here.

We paid $135 for two which included two alcoholic drinks and one dessert. We split a side which is easily enough for two. Tip was included in the $135.
