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.

The wine we selected very good quality aroma and smooth flavor.Appetizers the spicy shrimp and ravioli are a must to try them.The steaks we're cooked perfectly but the best one are the ones with the bones in better flavor and juicier.We tried the Ruth's chop salad and it was better than the wedge.

They added a New England Clam Chowder which is excellent. I love their steaks but their lobster tails are also tasty. The service by Jessica was outstanding. Their overall service was excellent.

My cousin, her daughter and I all had a splendid dinner here last Monday evening. Our cocktails, meal, and service were all incredible. All of our steaks were cooked to perfection, the ahi tuna appetizer was delicious, and our sides were the perfect compliment to our steaks. If you love a cocktail, we highly recommend "The Final Word"...oh my, it... More
