Ruth's Chris Steak House - Boston
My wife and I found the beefMy wife and I found the beef to be clearly outstanding. Perfectly cooked.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccableWe went for a late lunch. Food and service was top notch. We will be back!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for LunchWe thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Ruth's. Everyone ordered the steak frites; the luncheon-portioned sides, as always, were perfect. We appreciate the non-alcoholic wine availability. The table was united on the chocolate granache cake...a delicious and decadent ending to the meal.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMService Trumps ManagementIt is a rare ocurrence when table service trumps management but that is exactly what happened. The "ambiance lighting" was so dark that we could not read the menu. The management, however, could not have cared less and reprimanded the server for turning up the lights which quite honestly were so low it was difficult to even see your dinner companions. When we inadvertedly walked by and overheard ghe reprimand we jumped to the servers defense to no avail and instead we ourselves got a response that smacked of "mind your own business."
The above review was based not based on management but rather food, table service, and seating accomodations (we were 1/2hr early yet they were able to seat us).6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness lunchA great spot for a business lunch. Very good food (not just steak!), at a table which allowed us to have good discussions without concern over privacy. Service was very good, without being intrusive. Decor was quite nice. Highly recommended.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-WeddingTook two friends who are getting married imminently and a mutual pal to a superb dinner, obviously the steak filets, but also great vegetables including broccoli, asparagus and the like, appetizers like seared ahi tuna. For dessert, the restaurant brought a cake and ice cream dedicated for the happy couple. A huge fine wine list at remarkably reasonable prices further enhanced the evening.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA happy birthdayWe went here to celebrate a birthday. They gave us a wonderful table iwith window views. The service was great. Food and drink and the crazy orders were handled with ease. they comp the birthday desert and had pictures taken of the event. I have been to a number of ruth's and this one tops them all - We had a wonderful time5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Filet!This was our first visit but have already reserved another. Asked for a quiet table so was seated in a romantic, cozy brick walled room with arched ceilings. All adults in here at tables for 2-4 so it was quiet & refined. Started with a melt-in-your mouth carpaccio & then had a bone- in filet mignon cooked to perfection. The Chardonnay suggested by our waiter was excellent. Only downside is this place is pricey but the meal was worth it!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Anniversary ExperienceWe celebrated our anniversary there recently and had a fabulous dinner! I made a slight note about our celebration when reserving a table online, and when we arrived we had a great table in a quiet room, anniversary confetti and we were even treated to a complimentary dessert. The food and service were great per usual. Always a fantastic restaurant!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMthe steaks are always outstandingthe steaks are always outstanding as well as the service5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite Restaurant!The food, the service, the ambiance, and the location make this the best restaurant I've ever been to. The steak is better than anything I have ever tried, and so are all there side and desserts. The staff makes you feel like royalty and always have a smile. If you don't think you can afford a nice dinner, here's the trick. If two people get a petit filet, a side to split (the potatoes au gratin are my favorite!), no alcohol and go on a special occasion (make sure you tell them when you make the reservation) you can get all of that and free desert for under $100 for two. It's totally worth it. Try and try their cheesecake, it's the best I've ever had.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrate in StyleTo celebrate our daughter's College graduation we chose Ruth's Chris. The dinner was delicious. Our server Mary was wonderful. It was a perfect way to celebrate a very special evening.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steaks anywhereWe both had the fillet mignon. My Japanese colleague said it was so much better than the Kobe beef in Japan that they should immediately import the same beef to Japan. The chocolate dessert was equally good.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't argue with RuthIt's a very good steak house. Trust the waiter with the wine list, it's long, it's good, and it tends to get pricey. I threw caution to the wind this trip and went for the ribeye. It was very good, but I won't order it again. And try the hashbrowns with cheese sauce. It's a killer of itself. I thought their "wedge" was a bit much, but the blue cheese was very good. There goes any calorie count whatsoever.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Everyone at Ruth's Chris was absolutely amazing. I brought my boyfriend there for his birthday and he loved it. I particularly liked how everyone who came by our table, even the ice water man, said happy birthday. There was confetti on the table when we arrived and they also brought out an amazing cheesecake at the end with a candle. It was a romantic and warm spot as well. The food was pricey but amazing, and I had a great dining experience. Only complaints go to a wobbley table and no one really saying goodbye as we left the restaurant. I was very pleased and will definitely return.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!We have dined at Ruth's Chris numerous times and have always been beyond pleased. The atmosphere, food, and service are perfect. We look forward to the warmer weather so we can have lunch outside in the beautiful courtyard!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodThis is definitely a dining experience you won't want to miss. Great drinks, service, and steaks you could ever eat. Definitely a place to celebrate a great occasion.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed!Another great experience at Ruth's Chris, our absolute favorite restaurant in Boston.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat all the way aroundbest streak in town, romantic, huge wine list, great service, quite on one side, vibrant on the other.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food and service at a price!Was recommended this restaurant by a local as my husband and I are from the UK. Set in an historic building, it's a fabulous restaurant. The wine list is comprehensive and the menu varied, despite the steak specialism! We thoroughly enjoyed our filet on the bone. This was our most expensive meal on our US trip by some way (even more than Smith and Wollensky) but we would say it was worth it. The service was exceptional.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMrushed eveningI've been here plenty of times - both for work and personal. This time, we felt quite rushed by our waiter. We decided to order the 3-course meal which I would not do again. I honestly think the quality is less just because it is part of the 3-course option (versus getting everything a la carte. Even the side options were quite lackluster.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrationA lovely atmosphere with excellent service and delicious food. Our friend was celebrating her Special Day and couldn't have been happier with our choice for lunch. The staff presented her with a delightful dessert as a special treat. Many thanks !5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNothing else to describe theNothing else to describe the steak beside perfect! It may get pricey, but definitely worth every last penny.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, service, andExcellent food, service, and ambiance- all in old City Hall of Boston. We can't wait to go back!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit pricey and all the sidesA bit pricey and all the sides are a la carte but the best steak I have ever had!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful meal.Fantastic meal and service. This is the best reastaurant in the chain of locations.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday Dinner ExperienceWent for my birthday with my girlfriend and had the best time. Our waiter Andre was knowledgeable, courteous, and attentive. I had the filet medium-well with shrimp and mashed potatoes. Absolutely outstanding. Just when I thought it was over, I was surprised with a desert on the house. Couldn't be happier with every facet of the experience. This is how fine dining should be all the time.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent!The service was excellent!

Your waiter, Justin knew some great recommendations.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTh'eve improved on ExcellentReserved a table for 6. Momentary hiccup when they called to confirm and I asked if I could add a 7th, but they called back and said it was fine. At the restaurant, we got a great corner table, teriffic waiter, and outstanding food. When I changed my mind on my cocktail, the waiter brought both, and let me choose one. As always, the steaks were prefectly prepared, and most brought home some leftovers. A special baked potato dish was wonderful. Bread pudding was the best of several desserts. I've always thought that RC was great for food but OK for service; this was outstanding on both fronts. A very memorable meal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place is beautiful, pictureThe place is beautiful, picture perfect. The food was incredible and the waitstaff was outstanding!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI just LOVE Ruth's ChrisI mean, do I even have to say that their food is amazing? I feel like everyone knows this already. I'll reiterate AMAZING!!!!! I tried the buffalo shrimp appetizer this time. OMG- love. I'll be getting that next week when I return. I went for my birthday. The SERVICE! I want to say this particular time I had the best service I've ever received dining out. they took our pictures (multiple times) the wait staff was SUPER FRIENDLY! We cracked jokes- it was really great. They closed before we were done- no rush! So patient and accomodating. There was no, "the kitchen is closing, hurry up." My Birthday ice cream had a picture on it some of the staff drew- hilarious. If you could ask me anything to review I'd give them an "A+". Just excellent.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!!Great food, great service!! We were there to celebrate a friends birthday, which the server overheard. She sent over a complimentary dessert which was unexpected and very thoughtful. Will return for sure!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRuth's Chris is its own uniqueRuth's Chris is its own unique experience....especially when you're seeking "beef"......4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent dinnerWe had an excellent dinner cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly! We will defintely go there again! The bar area was lovely and comfortable as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fabulous dinner atWe had a fabulous dinner at Ruth's Chris, once again. We started with drinks at the bar and then moved to our table. The one issue we had is that we had called a week earlier and asked to add one person to our party and we were informed that we could not keep our 3:15 reservation if we added another person to our reservation. We would have to come at 6:00. So, we did not change the reservation. To our dismay the restaurant was not full and two tables next to us remained empty the entire time we were there. So, we were disappointed that they could not accomodate us and add one more person to our party. Other than that, we had a faboulous time!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic. I justFood was fantastic. I just wish our server paid a little more attention to us instead of us sitting with closed menus for over ten minutes. Other that that everything was perfect.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be back!We ordered two Filets and they were cooked to perfection. Best steak I've ever had. This is my second time dining here and I'm looking forward to going back again. I'd definitely recommend Ruth's Chris for an expensive night out--you'll get your $$ worth!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter Marin took great careWaiter Marin took great care of me and my cousin. Will ask for him on next visit.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was brought out promptlyFood was brought out promptly and was delectable. The service was amazing, they came and checked on us every few Minutes in a considerate manner. The only downside was the dining area consisted of one giant room and the eating was a bit crowded.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot. Had reservationsGreat spot. Had reservations but still waited have hour despite hostess saying just a moment3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe calamari was little overThe calamari was little over cooked and the Bread pudding wasn't as good when I was there last.. Which was a year ago. Other than that I would have given it a 5 star..3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best!Our dinner at Ruth's Chris was spectacular, the service was wonderful, and the staff friendly, helpful and polite. The evening was a complete success! Thank you!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great experience,It was a great experience, my first time here. Will definately return. A bit expensive, a la carte, but they do have some specials which are worth the buy. All 4 of us was pleased. Service was excellent and same for the food. I had the salmon which was just plain salmon, which could be made anywhere, nothing special. Would like to have had some type of sauce on it which I've had in other restuarants. My friends loved the filet and the crab cakes. We will all definately return.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, but veryFood was delicious, but very small portions. Some entrees like the totmato soup arrived lukewarm, which was unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber (not to mention these prices). Filet was delicious, as as was dessert. The house salad was way too onion-y for 2 of the 4 of us at the table.
The clincher of the evening was when the waiter looked at us and asked, "What can I get you guys?". Really? Guys? Should I even have to explain what's wrong with this?
Still a good evening, but I ould not rush to go back again.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome 1st time experienceHad a wonderful 1st time experience.

Last year we were very disapointed with our waitress we had for many reasons. So because we love the food there we decided to go back this year and we could not beleive when we were seated and our same waitress as last year came over to serve us. My son and I just looked at each other and said "oh no!" Well I have to tell you she was excellent this year and we were so happy with our whole experience. Thanks so much!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak ever!This was not my first time at Ruth's Chris Steak House. As always, the food was excellent!
