My husband and I go here every thanksgiving and xmas . The food was good but the service was horrible. Our food took over an hr to come out , the simplest thing took forever to get .. a drink … a knife … water … food … the bill . At the end of dinner my husband left to get the car while I waited an extra 20 minutes for desserts to go . Food was good . But after Almost $200 , for that bad a service we will definitely be rethinking our holiday plans .

This was our first time back since COVID (we did take-out once) and it did not disappoint. Noted there was no valet parking (which they used to excel at using a third-party with a nice phone app service), but other than that the food and service were excellent. The server did blame "supply chain" for being out of Lobster Tails and Calamari, and that really shouldn't happen on a Friday night. But we were really there for steaks, and they were fabulous.

The apps were fantastic. The sides were okay. The mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts were basic, my wife makes way better at home (yes she was here with me). The steak is what we went for and it was fantastic. Cooked perfectly, buttery, delicious. The steak lived up to my expectations of this place.

I was excited to visit Ruth Chris because of its popular reputation, but I was extremely disappointed. I am very picky, but my friend felt the same. We started with a crab cake which was very bland. The ceaser salad was tasty. The ribeye was cooked exactly how I requested, but overall, just mediocre. I wasn't impressed witht their red wine options and drank a martini with dinner which was upsetting. The caramel brulee was delicious! I hope this helps.

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.
