    We visited Ruth's Chris in Boise for the first time this weekend and were very impressed. That was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Our server, Sarah, was unbelievable. She definitely made the whole experience that much better.

    We've been to many Ruth's Chris restaurants around the country, and this one is a step above in every category. Last year, we dined at the Downtown Portland location, and were disappointed by the cheesy décor, lackluster service and food. As a result, we were not standing in line to try the new Boise location. We're so glad we changed our minds. It was, by far, the best Ruth's Chris dining experience we've ever had. Our dinner was perfectly executed in every way. The best part: it didn't feel as if we were dining in a chain restaurant. The seasonal fig appetizer was wonderful, as were the steaks (of course!). The service, décor and ambience are the best Boise has to offer for a lovely upscale evening. We'll be back soon!

    Steak was excellent, side dishes were fine, nothing special. I was a little disappointed in the service since it was Sunday night and the restaurant was not that busy. I will give this restaurant another try in the future.

    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.

    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'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.

    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.

    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.

  • The BEST Steaks, EVER
    IdahoWineGuy
    Dined on 5/17/2014
    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
