  • Although the tables were closer
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/19/2008
    Although the tables were closer together than I thought they would be, it did not deter too much from the experience. I think they do an excellent job with their Restaurant Week menu, and we will be back -- even paying full price. The food and service was superior.

    When I went on Tuesday they had problems finding a table for me so I told them I would love to sit at the bar and did so. I enjoyed it so much that I was able to make a resrvation and go back the next day with a friend for lunch. We did have a table that day. I believe it would be great for outdoor dining when the weather improves but not now.. Fabulous......

    My steak was under cooked both times I went for lunch during restaurant week. I asked for medium and it was definitely medium-rare....bloody in the middle. The part of the steak that was cooked to my liking was excellent. Also, they have one of the better house salads...very tasty.

    I felt as though we were rushed during lunch. The food seemed to be prepared in an assembly type of way, with our steak arriving before we finished our salads. The service was not as prompt and friendly as the two previous times that I had visited there.

    I was very surprised with the service received at Ruth Chris, I have been to the restaurant multiple times, and usually the service is outstanding. The waiter walked by our table several times to tend to other tables, give them more water, see how everything is doing - but he only checked our table once. All the water glasses at my table were empty - and I was highly dissappointed. Of course, this will not stop me from going to Ruth Chris, but it really was frustrating...especially having such a rich dessert for restaurant week and no water to wash it down.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/15/2008
    There are plenty of high end steak restaurants in Boston now, and unfortunately, Ruth's Chris is not a stand out. At this price range, it should. Side dishes were plain - nothing wrong, but at that price, that's a problem. The main cuts of steak were great, but nothing that you can't get a few blocks away. They were out of the dessert we wanted. Service was adequate. I'd rather go to a restaurant that tries harder.

    Wow, the building and restaurant is a real architectural gem. It lends to the overall experience. The fillet was as tender and juicy, thick and perfectly cooked. The sides, the small plates and the wine all added up to a fantastic evening. Sure the price is high, but for a romantic or special occassion, do yourself a favor and splurge.

    Ruth's Chris is right next door to my office and has a great lunch menu that will leave you feeling both satisfied and a little full! I've been here three times and I've never had a bad meal. The steak was great (perhaps a little too pink) but the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach are to die for! I will definitely continue dining here.
