Charged for one extra salad
After ordering our meals waiter told us they were out of 4 oz
filets. So we had to go with the next size up. Additional cost $7 per steak.
Not bad but for customer service purposes we should not have been charged. Not our fault they ran out of 4 oz steak
Little disappointed….

The restaurant was extremely cold. We were switched between 2 waiters. They were all out of calamari and blamed it on covid (really?) The service wasn’t exceptional just ok. I wouldn’t rush back.

Great steak. Great service. The restaurant was hosting many executives from the Ruth’s Chris corporate staff. When they got to their private dining room all service went to them. Very poor service from then. Parking is a big problem. If you go after 6:00 pm plan on at least to find a space. We will go back but with Uber until they start valet parking.

I went with my daughter to celebrate her graduation

The service was excellent.

The steaks were good but hardly great (each of ours was overcooked)

The prices were hefty

Ruth's used to be a great place with terrific food but you paid for it. Now, its pricey but the food is increasingly average.

If you want great steak, there are much better options

Ordered a side of Mac and cheese minus the lobster for my 17 month old daughter. No one told me that there was jalapeño in it. She would t eat it and I did not like it at all. The steaks were good, but overpriced.

It was a great experience - I had not been to Ruth Chris in a few years and was not disappointed. Farline (sp), our server was very attentive and offered very good advice on choices. Everything from appetizers to the very delicious Blueberry Bread pudding - was pleasing to the palate.

Party of 10 with a reservation a week in advance, they called to confirm reservation 2 times . Table not ready and they sat us in the corner of the bar. 45 minutes to get our first drinks. Came by twice to take our orders and we sent them to find our drinks. Empty water glasses for 30 minutes, when I notified the manager I was handed a water bottle to fill my own glasses. Seafood towers were messed up, we ordered 2 small ones and the gave us and charged us for 2 large.Food took over an hour and they were out of or tried to talk Insu out of what they did or didn’t have. Sides were messed up and came at different times. We had to get up and go get our wine bottles to fill our glasses. And only when they saw us filling our own glasses they came to offer us another overpriced bottle. $1800 bill for a regretfully time. Not even a check in or apology from the manager in over 2 1/2 hours.

Food was great. We had the ahi tuna for our app, the chopped salad, the NY sirloin, au gratin, Brussel sprouts. We were able to split the plate and had plenty. Service was outstanding, Michael the waiter and Mike his assistant were friendly and attentive to all our needs. We found that all the Ruth’s Chris we been on are consistently great. The one in Somerville was another great experience.

We went on mother's day. Luckily it was not busy but the experience was bad. They should be embarrassed. I ordered their specialty steak the 11 ounce filet, medium rare which the server confirmed to me as "warm red center". Perfect.
When it came out, I cut it and it was cold, purple, and raw inside; the edges were cooked. Flagged down server because he didn't check back and sent back. Mgr came back with it an it was 2 halves, both very well done and gray for the first 1/2 to 3/4" and still inside was purple/raw/cold.
Asked for a new steak. Said I'd wait. Waited for it a while.. my husband had finished eating already before it came; they had time to recook it, but it was the literally the same as the first one! Raw/purple/cold on inside. So, sent back a 3rd time. When it came back it was again well done for first 1/2" to 3/4" of an inch and still cold/raw/purple in the center.
Their website shows a perfectly cooked med rare filet and after 4 attempts they could seem to cook it? I told them to take it back, I was done, bring the check. They did of course take it off the bill (I didn't eat one bite of it after all) and gave me a gc for my troubles but I don't even think I'd go back to chance it again. If I did, I'd try a different location (maybe). Server ghosted us after first steak was sent back and we basically never saw him again. Manager that kept bring out the steak was nice and she apologized a lot (and even offered dessert to go, which we declined) but really this is a steakhouse and their specialty is steak. They need to retrain that chef for sure. A thick steak needs to be done a certain way so the middle gets up to med rare. I can't imagine the difficulty they would've had getting a steak to medium.
Restaurant was NOT very busy at all, we also went at an early time (3:30pm) to avoid crowds. Was not a great Mother's day dinner for sure.
