Food was great and we had an excellent server who made the meal even more enjoyable. Unfortunately, I forget the name of our server but she did have a son in the USMC.

Hadn’t been to Ruth’s Chris since pre-Covid and decided to give it a try since we were just at Capital Grille a few days before. I wish I had just gone back to the Capital Grille because Ruth’s Chris missed the mark. The steaks were pretty decent cuts of meat but the sides paled in comparison and value. The lobster Mac ‘n Cheese was just okay but the au gratin potatoes were terrible- big and chunky with little cheese flavor. I have to say our server was really good so I was thankful for a pleasant dining experience. Overall I’d say this place is wicked overpriced for what you get. Totally overrated!

The server knew it was our anniversary dinner and everything was OK until the steaks arrived. We both ordered basically the same thing but my steak was tiny, thin and was well done. My wife’s steak was the right size and cooked correctly. I talked to the server about it and the manager and sat there for 25 minutes while my wife was eating her food. By the time the new steak came I was done. Total Joke and no acknowledgment they screwed up our anniversary dinner.

We’d been there numerous times two years ago and the service and food were terrific and nothing like this. Look at our past reviews, nothing but 5 or 4 Stars. Terrible experience tonight. Very disappointed.

Dinner began well with appetizers. Party of 4, one strip ordered medium, came out medium well. My filet ordered medium, came out well and sent back. Next one came out rare, tough and really lacking any flavor. Server never asked how anyone’s meals were. Have had many great dining experiences at Ruth’s across the country. This one was disappointing.

Great food, outstanding service from Scott our server, he was extremely well-versed in the menu and the wine selection. I’ve been to other Ruth’s Chris steak House throughout the country and this was by far one of the better experiences, it helps that it was my anniversary and I was able to enjoy a wonderful meal with my wife.

I think a restaurant of this caliber should be more cognizant of amenities, etc. Two of the four stalls in the ladies room had broken doors. The coffee machine broke the night before and nothing was done to make sure there was coffee available somehow in the location. I would think that 24 hours would be enough time to get a substitute coffee maker even if just a temporary fix.

Would definitely not consider this Ruth Chris's again. Boston location is much more elegant and customer oriented.

Always a great experience here! Food was delicious. So happy they brought back the fried calamari! So good! Service was incredible again as always. Mike at the bar is an outstanding server/bartender. His drinks are the best but his knowledge, friendly demeanor and warm welcome is what brings us back every time! Such a relaxing atmosphere and a great night! Until the next time...

Very good from start to finish. Great drinks, bread, wedge salad, steaks and salmon. House salad was boring. Stuffed chicken didn't seem to be stuffed. Would have liked key lime pie on the dessert menu.

Right from the start the food was a flop. Cosmo was so bitter with pure lime juice, crab stuffed mushrooms were overpowered with garlic, ribeye was tough and edges were over cooked, sides were cold.
$300+ later... not satisfied.

I don’t know if the food served at this location is different than the one downtown Boston but it was awful. The mashed potatoes tasted like the box ones you mix with water and filet mignon looked and tasted and looked like it was a cheaper cut of steak. It was disappointing.
