Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I went to Ruth's Chris for our anniversary. The staff spread rose pedals on our table and everyone who served us, whether it was just filling our water glass, clearing the dishes or bringing us food, wished us a Happy Anniversary. The food was amazing and so was the wait staff. We'll definitely be back! Thank you, guys!"

  • "My hubby and I chose Ruth's Chris restaurant to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. We were greeted at the door immediately and shown to our table. We loved being next to the window so we could people watch. The service was excellent as was the food. We didn't think it was any more than what you would pay for a high-class meal anywhere else. We especially enjoyed our server Ricky who helped make our experience enjoyable - he was knowledgeable, efficient and had a great sense of humor."

  • "Wife and I went to celebrate my retirement. Boy, did they treat us like royalty! I requested a romantic both and they accommodated in spades. The service from start to finish was top notch. The wife had the Portobello mushrooms and I the ribeye; both were superb. Great job all!"

  • "This was our first visit to this new restaurant. Atmosphere is excellent. The food was normal Ruth's Chris. Service was outstanding. If you do not want to people watch make sure they seat you in the dining room not the bar area with the window on the world."

  • "Our visit was for our 5th wedding anniversary, and the staff saw to it was memorable in only positive ways. As always the food was delicious and exactly as we ordered it. And we were allowed to dine at a very nice pace, with an appropriate amount of attention paid. A dessert in honor of the event was the topper. Thanks for a great evening Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Boise."

  • "We were amazed that when we arrived they congratulated us on our anniversary and Caitlin greeted us by name and also commented on our anniversary. Service was timely, yet respectful of our privacy. Kevin was humorous and engaging as Caitlin's support"

  • "We've been to a few of the Ruth's Chris Restaurants in various cities. Boise is a hard place to keep a fine dining restaurant going. I do hope they can make it here. As it is still fairly new, there were a few issues that one will expect with service. The food was exactly as I would expect for Ruth's. I had the Filet cooked medium and it was perfectly pink in the middle and of course very hot. The creamed spinach is one of my favorite dishes which was also delicious. I was a little disappointed to pay an extra $5.00 for the tiny portion of Béarnaise sauce. If you love a great steak you must dine here. Be prepared to spend $$$$+ as it is expensive."

  • "We were so anxious to visit your new restaurant that we arrived 30 minutes early. Your door staff handled our arrival efficiently and with professionalism. Jason was our waiter and his support team and he did an admirable job. Service was very good and not overly pushy. We didn't give him much room to sell your menu as we had already decided what we wanted. We both thought that the quality of the steaks were not up to the price, Other places we eat make certain any silk or fat is trimmed from the steak. The taste was excellent and the side dishes tasty. Although the stems should be removed from your special mushroom plate as they are really tough and chewy. We are already planning our next visit. "

  • "Thank you, Ruth's, for coming to Boise! This will be our go to for celebratory events moving forward! The staff was attentive, the food exquisite and the wine paired very well. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The steaks were wonderful. Very tender and cooked perfectly. The lobster, however, was a bit over cooked and dry. And I had to ask for butter to dip it in. The service was pretty slow and the restaurant wasn't too busy. I don't mind a leisurely diner, but we waited quite a while to get our first drink and to place our order. The wine list is pretty limited if you like a big, full-bodied red, and they didn't have Belvedere vodka. It's a new restaurant with all new staff. Maybe it'll get better after everyone is fully trained. Overall, it was a good meal but for a really special occasion, I'd stick with Chandlers. "

  • "Steaks are reliably good. Service at this franchise needs some work. Pacing of dinner was off."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The food and service was excellent but the dining room was very hot. I would not dine there in the big dining room again until their system is fixed. They said that their air conditioning system was having some air flow problems. We were three couples and all of us had sweaty shirts by the time dinner arrived. Might be better to sit in the lunge area. "

  • "This place is consistent. Great steaks prepared exactly how you ask it to be prepared and service is impeccable. Great wine selection as well. Great to have in Boise!"

  • "SERIOUSLY. I had the petite sirloin. Perfectly cooked and so incredibly tender. Expect to drop some dough here, most steaks are in the 40 dollar range. Sides are all extra. We had a party of 5 to celebrate a birthday and dropped a cool $400 for salads, steaks, 3 sides, dessert and a bottle of wine. This occasion the service was a bit sketchy--nice enough, but she seemed to be distracted. She wasn't even there to deliver the food! If I'm dropping this much dough, I expect the server to be attentive and involved at least a little bit. I've been there once before and the service was INCREDIBLE, so I think this young lady was just off her game. Still had a great evening, and I still recommend this place highly. Fantastic wine list."

  • "We have enjoyed Ruth's Chris Steak Houses all over the USA, and are extremely happy they are now in Boise. This new restaurant is particularly nice...very comfortable, great for both romantic dinners, special occasions, and even business meeting dinners. As in other Ruth's, the service was excellent. Food was cooked to perfection."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The food was highest quality and was the service. Both Molly our server and Josh the Manager were very attentive to insure everything was perfect! The steaks were off the map excellent and they even knew how to do them "Pittsburgh" style (Charred outside and how you want it on the inside!). Scallop appetizer was excellent, Salad excellent, the Lobster Bisque probably the best I've ever had (and I've had it quite a few places), Mac n'Cheese great, and again the steaks were excellent!! We recommend it highly!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Booked early dinner reservation so I could order the pre-fix menu, 3-course meal (salad, entree, desert). Already did happy hour in bar for $40, which was fair. However, I surveyed my final bill in the restaurant & the server rang in desert 3 times (additionally), charged us twice for upgrades, which he had already included. He fixed part of the bill, but when returning with what he thought was the correct amount, was still wrong. Rather than point out that he still had a desert on the charge, and another $6 overcharge, I paid the bill and left. The overages were nearly $30, got them down to $12 and just called it good for the sake of the evening. Next time, I won't be so kind.....Casey, get the charges right or I won't give you a 20% tip!"

  • "Made a reservation for 2 for a special evening with my daughter. We shared steak, au gratin potatoes, and brussel sprouts. Steak was great, sides were lackluster at best. Service was so-so which considering we were there early (6ish) and they weren't busy, it was quite disappointing for $170 bill for a shared meal. We ordered two glasses of wine when our dinner was served. They were literally brought with our check. Not cool at ALL!! But everyone was very polite and oh so sorry. It will be awhile before I try again. I've been to other Ruth Chris' locations and was far more impressed with the service level. "

    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Throughout the years I have dines at many Ruth's Chris locations and have yet to see what all the fuss is about. The Boise location is no different. While the service is outstanding (highly recommend Brandon), the steaks themselves are not as good as the ones my husband smokes at home. We felt while the quality of need was good, there was no flavor. Additionally, the shrimp in our appetizer were fishy and our side items were passable but nothing we can't do at home. The standouts were the wine list (A plus), the salad (says something when the standout at a steak place is a salad) and the service. And while we are foodies who don't mind spending money for a good meal, we have other local restaurants (or our own kitchen) we prefer. "

  • "This was my first visit to the Ruths Chris in Boise, although I've been to many in other states and was excited to learn one was coming to Boise. The steaks were good and very tender (but not as good as I remembered). I ordered a fillet and it had great flavor. My only disappointment was there was a lot of fat in it which took away from the experience. Perhaps had it cooked longer, I wouldn't have noticed it as much. Others in my group also mentioned the fat in the meat. Also disappointing was the potatoes Lyonnais. I felt they were overcooked and not very good. I would not recommend them to anyone unless they want a dry French fry experience. "

  • "The restaurant was very neat and clean, almost sterile feeling. Not a warm and romantic type of place. Food was great, but expensive. Not the place you would eat at on a regular basis unless you don't mind spending over $100 for a meal. They did a nice job accenting our table with rose petals because it was our anniversary. From the time we checked in to the time we left several members of staff offered their best wishes to us, as did the manager, at our tableside. They did not offer a complimentary dessert for the anniversary, which I find surprising due to the amount of money you are spending. So many other restaurants do. On the whole, I liked the restaurant but would only go there for a special occasion."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The service was good & I had not complaints but for the money, the food was nothing special. The lobster bisque was overcooked & cream in the soup was scalded. The lobster cakes were very flavorless and had too much cracker breading. Granted this restaurant is well known for their steaks but my husband ordered the rib eye & although, a good flavor, the fat in the rib eye was too much. For half the price & just as great a service, Lock Stock and Barrel will still be my favorite steak place in Boise."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food was excellent, the service a bit slow. We were seated in the bar area. In the future we will request seating in an area where the ambiance and noise levels are more desirable. The wine list is marginal from our point of view so we brought our wine. The corkage fee of $10 is very reasonable."

  • "Overall the positives of this experience were; the waiter Bob was fantastic, the ambiance and the desserts. Ribeye and New York Steaks two people ordered were fantastic. The disappointing parts of this experience were; 3 of the 5 filets ordered were not cooked according to what was asked and were overdone. 1 of the filets was just 'fair'. We had high expectations as others told us the filets were the best they had ever had. Disappointing for the money spent to not have good filets."
