The food was absolutely perfect. My petite filet was one of the best steaks I have ever had and the ahi tuna was perfect as was the asparagus with hollandaise. Good service.

It was awesome... The food was outstanding as usual. And the Host and Server were grand. During this hard time with Covid-19 we still felt safe and felt that Ruth Chris has been keeping up with the CDC guidelines. We will be back!
Also, we go often and we saw a new waiter named: ZACK he was excellent and his awesome. Never seeming to be faking it, he truly loved his job and treated us outstanding. Thank you Ruth Chris, and Thank you Zack

Server was good, steak did not come out the way we wanted, but it is what it is. Their Covid seating plan, not well executed and makes no sense. Eat outdoors if you can or ask for a booth.

Upon check in for our reservation we were informed that if we went to the bar/lounge for cocktails (during happy hour) we would then have to order dinner in the bar and not be allowed the table we reserved in the main dining room. So I asked well can we order happy hour drinks from the main dining room and we were told no. So, we took a table in the bar area. Meanwhile, there were no happy hour drink offerings ONLY a petite filet and wine pairing - so we should have just gone into the dining room which had a much more ambient setting. Very disappointed especially where this was our first time eating at a Ruth's Chris establishment. I will say though that our waiter (Michael) was excellent as was the food.

Celebrated my boyfriends 27th birthday and he truly enjoyed him self. He wanted to try everything on the menu. However we went with the the steak and lobster on the pre fixe menu. Everything was delicious. I recommend the raspberry martini and the crab stuffed mushrooms.

Had a wonderful meal. The appetizers (ahi tuna and crabcakes) were delicious. The tuna was like steak. We all had various cuts of steak, each cooked to perfection. The side dishes (sweet potato casserole - best I ever had), asparagus, delicious and broccoli as well. We also had a couple of deserts. The creme brule was fantastic, crisp and tasty. The cheesecake was terrific as well.

All in all an excellent meal. The ambience was great, our servers friendly and prompt.

We never even got seated. It would be nice if a glass of water would be offered until the table was ready but we went ignored. Not ok. Reservations were at 515. At 550 we left.

We went specifically because Ruth's Chris always participated in Dine Out Boston to our surprise the weren't participating this year. Nonetheless we stayed, only to find out a few of the items that we specificallly dine there for were not being offered as well. Which was another huge disappointment. We usually enjoy the fire roasted corn and brussel sprouts with bacon we were told they weren't avail due to short staff and not having enough help with prepping these items at this time. Our steaks were great as usual, my cesar salad had way to much dressing in it. I didn't bother about sending it back I just ate half of it. So just the disappointment of paying a good amount of money and not getting what you really wanted doesn't sit well with me. But it is what it is.

Just a splendid experience from when you open the front door till you exit. The staff has class, a lovely demeanor and are always super friendly. Steaks come out piping hot, and sides are the stuff that comfort food dreams are made of. The atmosphere is always relaxed, never stuffy. Top shelf waiters and helpers. the host and manager always give a warm welcome. They really make you feel wanted here and treat everyone with the same amount of respect.

Jeremy was our server for our second trip to Waltham Ruth’s. Awesome server, just overall great—again. This location should train the other locations on how to present food and make the experience enjoyable. From check-in until the check came, everyone and everything was perfect. Great job by staff.
