Good food, drinks and service. Jim was out server. He was attentive and very pleasant. Very distracting patron at a table behind us, coughing and hacking, very loudly. This person should not have been dining out with such a bad cough.

Perfect place to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. Selected the lobster tail and 6 oz filet. Absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Ruth Chris for those special occasions .

Came here to celebrate the end of my pregnancy. I’ve ALWAYS had an exceptional experience at Ruth’s Chris…up until now. The service, which is usually super proactive, attentive, kind, warm, engaging…nope, we got a snobby 20yr old something who basically ignored us all evening and couldn’t even be troubled to bring me, a nine month pregnant woman, an ice water. I was planning to let it slide on the bad service, until I had to send back steak TWICE due to the cook. I was very clear when ordering that eating anything under medium can cause harmful bacteria transfer to my baby and cause a serious health complication to my unborn daughter. They confirmed that my steak would be fully cooked, no raw bits, with a slight pink in the middle, which is exactly what I wanted. Two steaks came out, the first FULLY RAW and the second Medium Rare, but closer to rare. They tried refiring the steak again, only to come back completely burnt, dark gray, and entirely dried out. This is not what I expect when I pay $50+ for a small steak with no sides! Outside of that, the appetizer came out cold, like it was sitting for 10+ minutes and the potatoes came out with no seasoning. We were prepared to have an amazing, celebratory dinner and expected to pay $200+ for just two people, but this was such a horrible experience that it’s completely ruined Ruth’s Chris for me - my favorite celebratory restaurant.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday. We both ordered ribeye steaks, lobster Mac and cheese, potatoes, and asparagus. The steaks were very salty and my steak was over cooked(I ordered medium, but it was at least medium well to well done). The second steak was perfectly cooked but still very salty. The saving grace was Zach, our waiter!! He gets 5 stars!! Ask for him if your at the Waltham location.

My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time, and the dining experience was superb! It was Memorial Day, and the place was busy! Restaurants in general are just getting their groove back post COVID, and I could tell the staff was short of needed help.

But our waitress was on top of her game; she was apologetic for a sluggish initial introduction and order, but made up for it with extra attention the rest of the evening and a few side dish discounts!

The food was fantastic! The steaks here were perfectly cooked and according to temperature charts. We had crab cakes for an appetizer; and I highly recommend them. As for the wine—great selection! I chose the Artemis Cabernet 2017. It was perfect with the dinner! The pallet picks up the boldness of this wine with the steak. It’s a deep red wine and will now be part of our personal home collection.

Ambience was great and the lighting was perfect. It’s an open room where we sat, but the tables had enough distance between them to ensure a quiet personal dining experience with your significant other. My wife and I will be back for sure!

A wonderful dining experience as usual. Great ambiance in the dining area. Our server Jim was very attentive and checked on us frequently to make sure everything was to our liking and if we needed another cocktail or anything else. Food was cooked perfectly. I had the lamb chops and the were delicious. Always a great time here.

We had high hopes for Ruth’s Chris but were beyond disappointed with the food, cleanliness and overall experience. Especially given the cost this was a disaster. Our server told us Sunday is not a good day to come and it showed. French fries oily, limp and cold, ravioli appetizer cold, wine glasses filthy, reds served chilled, sparkling water served warm. The only positive was that at least our server was warm and polite.

This location either had a really bad day or is not worthy of to carry this brand name. I would not recommend this location.

We had a wonderful experience until a group of gang members came into the restaurant demanding to sit together which was not in compliance with the state’s requirements. They caused a scene and gave the management a hard time. Totally ruined an otherwise wonderful night. We should have called the Waltham police

Reception, waitstaff, meal prep just an all around 5 star moment. Our food was cooked to our specifications and absolutely delicious. For us it was a bit of a distance to travel, (45 minutes +/-) but so worth it. I wish we had a Ruth's Chris in our area.

Loved my chilean sea bass! What a treat. Everything is ala carte here. Creamed spinach was excellent and the sweet potato casserole was good but more like a dessert due to the brown sugar topping. Creme' brulee for dessert-always a good choice here. Very businesslike atmosphere, but tables well spread out for Covid. Overall, an excellent choice for dinner!
