    The steak is like no other - melts in your mouth. If the weather permits sit outside because the view is incredible. For being in the middle of the city the noise level is surprisingly low. The wait staff is very kind and prompt. Highly recommended.

    I am new to the Boston area and Ruth's Chris was the perfect way to begin restaurant week. They were punctual and catering to my entire party. They were accomodating when I called last minute and added one more person. I know how difficult it can be with changes and I appreaciate them for having excellent customer service.

    From seating till paying everything was PERFECT! We sat at a lovely outside table, enjoyed a DELICIOUS meal. The salads were fresh and delicious - not overly dressed. The steak (filet) was the tenderest, tastiest I've had. The shrimp were scrumptious. The mushrooms were yummy. The highlight was the SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE. It MUST be ordered. Can't wait to go back and have the whole thing myself - no sharing it's soooo good! The wine list was complete and when deciding we were given a taste to help the decision! Dessert was good, but not necessary after the sweet potato casserole - OR, order it for dessert too!!!

    We were given a table in the courtyard, and it was lovely. Our waiter was very helpful and our food was delicious. We participated in restaurant week menu which offered both steak and salmon. Our friends both ordered the salmon and said it was the best they've had in years. Our steaks were juicy and flavorful. We also had mashed potatoes (yummy) and asparagus. Dessert was a beautiful plate with fruit and chocolate cheesecake. There was nothing left on anyone's plate. We asked if we could stay and talk for a while, which was fine for them. We had a very satisfying meal in a lovely setting. We are definitely going back soon.

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    We decided to take advantage of Restaurant Week as the last time this was offered we had a fabulous dining experience. This time everything was very good but not excellent: steak was cooked to perfection and the service was fantastic. Our disappointment was the overall Restaurant Week menu choices. Mashed potatoes were great and the asparagus was very good also, but the dessert was just okay. The wine we selected for $35 (Snap Dragon Cab) apparently is sold for $5 a bottle according to our app. It was good but never opened up, which to us made it overpriced for the value it offered. We would return again, but only if the menu offered better wine and dessert selections during Restaurant Week.

    The food and service are excellent at Ruth's Chris. The steak is probably the best I've ever had. My only complaint is that we were seated in a side room, not the main dining room, and it was VERY quiet. Great for a romantic evening though! I would recommend it highly!

    Went to lunch with my family on restaurant week. We were so looking forward to our visit. We have dined here many times and it has always been excellent, but not this time. Horrible service, grizzled, flavorless steak. Very poor quality cut of meat, not the steak that I remember. I have always encouraged others to go to Ruth's Chris, but something has changed for the worst. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED....

    Ruth's Chris has the best DINE OUT BOSTON. The filet served on a hot plate. Each bit is hot - so delicious. The Au Poivre Sauce was just okay. Maybe we will try the Bleu Cheese Crust next time. The potatoes and spinach so tasty. The bread also. Cheesecake with fresh fruit was a delightful ending for this meal

    I have to admit this was not as good as usual. The corn chowder was not hot, the bread was not fresh, the mashed potatoes were good but not hot.. However the filet and asparagus were fabulous. It is restaurant week so it is difficult to be as great as usual but it wasn't.

    A co-worker and I booked a lunch for Dine Out Boston (formerly Restaurant Week). My friend is not a beef eater but we were happy to see chicken, salmon, and crab cakes available in addition to steak. I had the salmon, he the crab. I asked the reduce the butter and oil that produces that wonderful sizzling sound; they did and it was a wonderful cut of fish. The salmon was cooked rare. It could have used a few more seconds cooking but was delicious. The chocolate cheesecake desert was a delicious puck of sweetness with a side of berries. We were seated downstairs in a deep wood paneled room; fine but not as elegant as the upstairs dining room. I always appreciate that they use the silver scoop to clear the table before desert.

    We went for lunch with our 2 children ages 4 and 5 . I was very nervous taking them. My husband and I have been before for dinner and wouldn't have thought it was a place for children . I was surprised by the children's menu that was offered. They gave both kids crayons . It was a great experience.

I always go to RC when I crave good steaks and service. This time is a miss. Please treat your customers better next time because they're the ones who will keep you in business.

    The food as Ruth Chris is amazing! My mother had the most tender steak, and though they're known for steak I ventured out and got roasted chicken that was amazing. All of our food came in sizzling hot plates which was great because our food remained hot throughout the entire meal. The dessert was delicious as well! Our waiter was a little annoying...but it happens from time to time.

    I always look forward to Ruth's Chris because I know that the food will be consistantly good. I never miss dine out week because then it is also ecomonical. I only get the filet because that's why I go to a steak house. It is always prepared exactly as ordered. That should not be an issue but it has been at other places.
