    Everything was good except the medium rare steak that should have been medium well, they did fix once brought to their attention. They need to inspect the silverware before place on the tables. Food, drinks, waitresses very good.

    Went there for Dine Out Boston and over all the experience was just ok. Have been to a number of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse’s and it just didn’t live up to previous experiences. I also ate at Morton’s recently and it wasn’t even close to that experience. The soup I got was tiny, didn’t even fill the small cup and was barely warm. We never got any bread even though I saw other people with bread. Our main course and dessert were very good but felt a bit rushed, as our courses came one after the other. Our table was against a wall and there were miscellaneous stuff sitting on the ledge of the wall like wine glasses that seems left over from the prior people. At one point when the waiter walked away he did grab some of the stuff but left other things still sitting there. Just wasn’t the experience I would expect. If I want a high end steakhouse I will probably go somewhere else.

    Our server Catherine was fantastic, offering stellar and very tailored service to my friend and I for dinner. Very knowledgeable about the menu, restaurant and confirmed everything for us to ensure our orders were to our liking. The food was fantastic, the lobster tail a fantastic addition. The drinks were also great and very well priced - can't beat a $14 espresso martini at such a nice restaurant! Came for Dine Out but the experience was so great, will be back another time outside of the discounted menu.

    This is the third time we have been to this location. Our steak was probably the best we’ve ever had at any Ruth’s Chris location. We were in the basement level which was a little dark considering we had our twin 4 year olds with. We ordered the classic entree. Cesar salad was great (could use more croutons), steak was amazing, the garlic mashed potatoes were meh and the Au gratin potatoes were also meh. The dessert was mini cheesecake which is one of my favorites! My husband didn’t care for his so bonus dessert for me!! We love Ruth’s Chris and will return after we save up more money!

    I have eaten at a minimum of 25 Ruth’s Chris locations from DC to Hawaii. This was by far the worst food we have ever had. Everything was over cooked from steaks, sides and even the dessert. If I had not been there before I would never go back to a Ruth’s Chris again

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - BostonResponded 3 days agoThank you for the feedback, WilliamG.

    We were seated against the wall and halfway through our meal, we saw ants crawling on our table and up the wall. When we alerted the server, she mentioned it was an ongoing problem that the restaurant was aware of. To remedy the situation, the manger offered to waive the cost of our two drinks, which were both non-alcoholic: ultimately, he only removed one of the drinks from the bill. This experience ruined our birthday celebration and their idea of making up for it was completely insulting. The fact that they knew they had an insect issue and sat us against the wall where the bugs crawled then moved onto the table, was also problematic. The food was good, though not every dish was spectacular. The only solid complaints were the water for our tea and the lobster Mac were cold. Also, the pasta within that dish was undercooked. Earlier that night, before the ant incident, we began to plan multiple future group dinners there. Given the way they handled the situation, we no longer plan to dine or do business there.

    Everything about our dinner last night was exquisite. It was a very hot night in Boston, but Ruth’s Chris was cool and comfortable. Our bar server before dinner was attentive, and treated us to delicious cocktails. My wife and I were celebrating our 37th anniversary, and our server recognized this milestone, and made us feel somewhat special in that moment. She was very attentive, highly professional, and totally focused on high quality customer care. Mission accomplished! She was excellent last night. And then there was our meal…a porterhouse for two, cooked to perfection. We also loved the sweet potato, that was essentially candy to us. We loved it! The sumptuous meal left no room for dessert, save for a pair of blackberry brandies. Superb! From start to finish, our experience at Ruth’s Chris last night was nothing short of spectacular. Our highest compliments to your entire staff. They were outstanding! Thank you all for making both our dining experience and 37th anniversary so memorable!

    Loved the ambience! It was my fiancé’s birthday. From our arrival to departure the entire staff made us feel welcomed and kept wishing him a happy birthday! He loved that! Though we went well through closing time, no one made us feel pressured! The lamb chops was spectacular! The best mashed potatoes i ever had in Mass so far. Oh and the calamari was to die for!!! We will definitely be back for more celebrations and anniversaries!

    When we got there, we sat for 21 minutes without someone coming to greet us and take our drink order. My boyfriend and I both ordered the filet medium. Mine came out absolutely spot on medium. My boyfriend’s came out well done. There was no pink in his steak at all. We ordered the baked potato and it came out cold. The asparagus was cooked perfectly though. The atmosphere was very nice and the drinks were tasty. Would return but I’m not sure I’ll rush back.
