As always Ruth's Chris dish are good and the servers do their job well. And if I'm looking for a place to take my 89 year out father to reminisce about the old days it's a fine restaurant. But it is over priced for the dishes you get as and is in general stuck in the 60's. If they ever update their menu or let the chef's cook their heart out, what a place it could be.

Maybe we caught the restaurant on a bad night. It was very crowded being Mother’s Day weekend. The staff was very pleasant but spread pretty thin. Both of our selections were over cooked, although my lamb was still very tasty.. My husband brought it to the attention of our waitress and she was very gracious, arranged for another steak and gave us a complimentary order of asparagus. Also, he never received the second glass of wine he ordered. I think we may try it again some day, but will definitely wait for a less crowded occasion. I rarely complete these kinds of surveys but thought restaurant management may appreciate this information. For the amount we were paying we expected something different.

Visited for a Mother's Day celebration and for my birthday. Server was exceptional and the food was even better. We had four in our party and each meal and the side dishes were cooked perfectly. We had ribeye steaks and halibut as our main entrees. Plenty to eat and even a bit left over. This was our first visit to this Ruth's Chris location and it did not disappoint. We will be returning.

Setting and service were excellent. The only negative was the au gratin potatoes dish. It was undercooked, potatoes were without flavor, do not purchase. The steak was great and the creamed spinach wonderful. Our desserts were beautiful and tasty. One last positive, our waiter made very good wine recommendations that we enjoyed. Thank you, for helping me give my wife an enjoyable birthday.

The greeters and our server where excellent. The steak and crap was great. However, the asparagus was super over-cooked...our waiter brought us new asparagus, but yet it still was cooked yucky. Also, the potatoe was very dry.
Finally, if this would have been Denny's it would have been acceptable, but not for a $280 bill + a $40 tip. ( our waiter was very efficient and friendly ). Overall...we most likely won't come back, but we would still recommend the experience to our friends...with a warning.

I have dined at RC in many cities over the years and many times in Boise. This was the worst experience I have ever had at an RC. Slow service, missed orders, food not prepared as ordered. For the expense, I expect more. Too many other great restaurants in Boise to take a chance on this one again.

Service was extremely slow. Food was generally good, though we got the Porterhouse and the filet side was over cooked to well done while the strip side was fine. Not sure how that happens. Sides were good and wine was decent. Price / value was solid. Would like to see quicker and just better service - for example, don’t come ask three times during our meal if the plates can be cleared. We waited a very long time to have the server check in with us, take our order, drinks, etc. so please don’t rush our meal when the food finally arrives.

Not our best evening at my favorite restaurant in Boise. The main entree appearance was lacking something awful and really no acknowledgment was given or consideration to take it back and fix it. I ate it, and it was delicious, but I expect my salmon at Ruth’s Chris to look better than that. Too much balsamic and the arugula was simply soaked in it. The place had a ring around it where someone spille or tilted the plate during delivery.

I informed the server about it, wasn’t looking for a refund or anything free, just to let them know that it could have been better.

My wife’s sea bass entree was perfect though.

It was our 51st Anniversary; we were with our best friends. Ruth's Chris is our favorite restaurant in Boise. We have always received exceptional service; Zach is the best server, he remembered when we were there last, which is very impressive. The ambiance is upscale, but relaxing at the same time. Our meals were outstanding; the filet is the best we have ever had, it melts in your mouth. We received a free dessert because it was our Anniversary, which is such a nice touch, not to neglect the fact that it was delicious. We will most definitely return.

Really awesome service and ambiance! Our waiter was fantastic! Food was average for a steakhouse. I tried the mashed potatoes and the au gratin and unfortunately they were cold. The steak (ribeye) was cooked to my liking and had good seasoning. Maybe The alacarte was not my thing.

It was a great experience! Food was amazing! It was expensive but we knew that going in. Service was fantastic! Our waiter was knowledgeable and willing to help at every opportunity. We went at a good time so there were many open tables. It was a bit cramped and surprisingly noisy which could have been better. Regardless, it is definitely worth it!

Server was so out of it. He looked like he was on something. He forgot an appetizer, we had to wait over 20 minutes for it after we told him he forgot it. Waiting time in between meals was bad. We waited and waited … and the restaurant wasn't full, half tables empty. I see why other restaurants are booked and this one always has open reservations. People must know service and food is declining in Downtown Boise location.

Excellent food, atmosphere, and wonderful servers. However, it was difficult and time-consuming trying to get our water glasses refilled (the person with the water did not make regular rounds). By contrast, Barbacoa has total service dialed-in completely... each table is visited multiple times throughout the meal, to keep the water filled. This was the only shortcoming of Ruth's Chris.
