    We had to leave the restaurant because my sister wasn’t feeling well. We both had more than 1/2 of our steaks left. We got to go bags and because we had to leave in a hurry we forgot the bags at the restaurant. We called once we got home to ask about our bags so that I could come back and pick it up (keep in mind that we had paid over $100 for these steaks). After a long wait on the phone, they eventually said they didn’t have it. But it certainly wasn’t in our car, which was the only other possibility.

    Thanksgiving tradition is always going to Ruth's Chris and enjoying a great evening. This was not the case for this experience. The menu at this Ruth's Chris was missing multiple items. There is no french onion soup, harvest salad, and strawberry basil gimlet. These are staples on the menu for the past five years. Next, the food that we did order was poor at best. Filet and Lobster for $90 were not worth it at all. The lobster was maybe three ounces, and the filet was a bad cut of meat. The taste was also down compared to normal. The mac and cheese and potatoes Au gratin were below average. The entire evening was poor, along with the staff was not good as the menu was not known, and multiple items were not talked about. Poor food and services is not the standard that we love about Ruth's Chris.

    The server was incompetent several dishes were not up to par with RC. The server failed to deliver the shrimp cocktail, the Caesar salad was tiny, the add on Shrimp was not plated with the filet. We have been to this location and many others around the country, unfortunately this was the most disappointing visit to RC that we’ve ever had and we have been dining at RC for over 30 years!! Boston was a fail!

    Not a good first experience at this time location. I visited Ruth Cris in providence about 10 years ago. I love steak and was a huge toss up between here and Ramsey. First off they stuck 4 tables in a 15x15 room that I guess was the mayors office the waitress said back in the day. It was just uncomfortable every one was whispering except one table with 3 kids. Wife had hands full and I over heard the waitress ask is your steak better now ( her response. Ye a yea). I’m like oh man!!! Me and my wife’s peaceful dinner was not what I was expecting at all. The help seemed very new the girl must have burnt her hand on hot plates 5+ times ( she was very very nice) we split a Filet ($60) then with all the sides it was over $150 with tip. (No drinks) We asked for med well. It came out still bleeding. I cut it to split it and my wife said that’s def not med well. She’s like ohh def not and Took the plate. They should have giving us a new steak but they tossed that one back into a 1800 degree oven and just crisp it up.. so now it’s over done of course. 🤦🏻‍♂️ had to ask for steak sauce to cover burnt flavor. Definitely not a good dinner was very disappointing to say the least from atmosphere to steak at the steak house. The Mac and cheese, cream spinach and loaded potatoes where you n point!! Just the steak killed it.

    We went for the Veuve Clicquot dinner and we’re astonished at how small the glasses of champagne were (most were only 1/3 full). Some tables got glasses that were almost 3/4 full- but definitely not us. It was not a good value and was just morally wrong.

    We've been to several hosted pairing dinners at the Waltham location and all were much better - food, room, service, etc. We (and others around us) were baffled that for a Veuve Clicquot tasting, the pours were meager at best. Overall experience was just ok.

    very disappointing , the Veuve Clicquot TasteMaker Dinner, was not very good , obviously the Champagne was good, but the food was a huge disappointment. the timing was horrible, servers did not remove used Utensils between courses and the result was a stain on the Tablecloth from the Server removing the Fork from the Plate and placing it on the white Tablecloth, and the Meal was just not very good. the Scallops were fishy, the Skirt Steak was cold and nobody could say for sure if that was the way it was supposed to be! it did not work, the Lobster in the Lobster Roll was over cooked, and the Filet was OK it was cooked properly but it was only about 3/4 of a Inch Tall! also the pours were not full servings, very stingy maybe a 60% Pour. we did not stay for the Dessert Course, the timing was brutal. we expected a lot more out of this Event. we have loved the Ruth's Chris experience in the past, but this was not good.

    I used to love this place. The service and new people are not the same. I asked for the stuffing that is inside of the chicken breast and I literally got a tiny butter cup with once scoop. It was insulting. I am used to way better service. On top of that I know its a mistake but I mean its never happened. I had 3 drinks and there were 4 on my receipt. And you guys should really update your menu and the prices. Again this was my favorite place and this last visit wasn't so great. Not sure ill be rushing back.

    We ordered the wedge salad and it was wilted We ordered the bbq shrimp and they brought out the spicy shrimp which was fine but them the waiter came over and and said did you already touch this lol because it’s not yours 🤦🏻‍♀️ I said no so he took it and gave me the one I ordered (I would be so mad if I was giving food that was already put on somebody else table) and we ordered the 11ounce fillet with bone in medium well with shrimp on top that came out with no bone and bloody and no shrimp they brought the shrimp over well after the stake was out and it was so tough it was over cooked and we also ordered the Mac and cheese and it was watery and cold and the cheese that was on it was clumpy it was really awful my husband wouldn’t let me complain but it was not worth the 350 at all I had a better dinner at outback for $80 I will say we did order the chicken and mashed potatoes and they was delicious and on point

    The speaker was blown, therefore too loud and static. Could benefit from replacing in the main dining room. Our sweet potato casserole was more dry than usual. Typically the crumbles on top are semi butter melted, this time it was extra heavy and extra dry. One of our medium rare petite filet was also dry. Both could have used more butter. Ok, experience, just not one of the best of our 30+ visits. Thank you.

    It was an absolute disastrous experience! this is my second time dining here. We were formally dressed and we were directed to the restaurant lower level. Even though there were plenty of seats available on the first level. I noticed that people on the loser level of the restaurant were dressed casually. I asked the waiter about this. And she said that “ you are seated in the cool section!!!!” I have never seen such a racist behavior anywhere! So sad! I felt so offended.

    It was ok. The food was amazing but extremely expensive for the portion size and quality. We were sat in the basement and the ambiance was definitely reflective of that. Service was good but, again, for the price tag it should have been outstanding.

    Will always be one of the best steakhouses in Boston and we will for sure be back. I will say that this time service was slower than usual. The server was very nice and they made us feel special as it was our anniversary. However, service was slower than we are used to. It took almost a half hour to get out first round of drinks. After that things picked up a little and it was not so bad. Over all, we will be back as everyone was nice and the food was great. Maybe next time they can pick up the pace a little bit so we don’t need to wait a half hour for drinks each round.

    One of the filets was over cooked. While we all understand that this can happen, the incredibly frustrating part of this was that neither our server nor her assistant came by to check in until the rest of the table had finished their meals. We emptied the water carafe on our table as well. Definitely a disappointment visit.

    Don't get too excited about the location being in the old statehouse. Company does not seem to care that much about showing it off. The food is standard and not great. Pricey and nothing unique or off the charts to report. Staff was friendly but not very knowledgeable about menu items. Celiac disease diners beware.

    I had a terrible experience. Two of the courses were served cold. No server ever came over during any course to check how everything was. This was a wine tasting, however there was no opportunity to purchase a glass of wine. The room was very drafty. Incredibly disappointed in the food and service, really unacceptable for a place that Inisually enjoy.
