Our server was excellent . She was attentive and knowledgeable. Got caught up at a very chatty table when our food was delivered so we had to wait for her to break away to point out a couple of missing items. She responded immediately and was excellent in making us feel well taken care of. The runners auctioned food though. Didn’t know seat numbers and didn’t address my allergy when delivering food.

The food was great but I was disappointed with the wine list. They were out of the first bottle I ordered and then they didn't have the right year for the next wine that I ordered which leads me to believe the wine list has not been kept up to date.

It would have been nice if they had recommended additional wines similar to the ones I was looking for.

We are visiting from out of town and this Ruth’s Chris is in a beautiful building and in a quaint part of Boston. Our waiter was very kind, friendly and efficient and the food was fabulous, as always! Thanks for a great dinner...

Went for anniversary during Boston Dines Out week, and they had a great deal for dinner for that event. So with that deal the experience we had was quite a good value. If normal prices were in force, the price tag would make the value of the dinner somewhat questionable. Meal was good, but not out of this world.

Always happy with the food and the atmosphere. I just think sometimes when you know your going to have a lot of people, may want to make sure you have just a little more help. The wait can be a bit much for your food to come. A lot of people go during lunch time and its really only an hour!

The restaurant week menu was great no change there but a suggestion here. I was with someone new and they were gluten free. The staff couldn’t readily answer questions and if the menu indicated that an item was gluten free there would be less confusion.

I love the historical location of this particular Ruth's Chris. We did not get greeted immediately however when the server finally came to our table, the service was exceptional. I ordered the filet and it just melted in my mouth. Everything was great and I will be back for sure!

This is my second time dining here and the experience is absolutely wonderful. The restaurant week menu is such a great deal, few restaurants offer steak for the lunch set, but they do and it tastes amazing. I really enjoyed my petite filet.

Well it wasn’t as quiet and romantic as I expected and we paid for filet mignon and lobster tail combo which was 65$ but they ran out of lobster tail so I got shrimp as a substitute but still got charge same price I don’t understand at all but everything else was good

Server was not that friendly. When I asked if there was any GF bread- he said “no” and didn’t suggest anything else or apologize- just “no”. Food was delicious but restaurant was dirty. We sat downstairs- directly next to/below the iron railings where the staff served from. The black railings and areas along the base of railings were covered in dust and dirt. I ran my finger across several areas and it left a clean trail. I was a bit disappointed and surprised at that issue.

This restaurant is definitely a special occasion destination as it is very pricey. Still on the fence if experience/food is worth the money. The flavor of these steaks are out of this world and have never disappointed - however the side dishes and sometimes the service are what leave me questioning the $$$$.

We had an excellent time. Twelve of us took our boss out for dinner for her birthday. Food, drinks, and service were excellent. I cannot thank the staff at Ruth's Chris on School Street in Boston enough. They did an outstanding job.

As always, you can not go wrong with the filet mignon. All were cooked perfectly to order and outstanding! I don't know how the vinaigrette dressing is made but it is delicious without being overpowering. Creamed spinach is always so tasty!!

So this is restaurant week and perhaps it would have been a better experience on an average night. We ordered off the regular menu as well as the special menus and much of the meal was disappointing. The regular menu appetizers were served lukewarm, like they had been prepared and held before serving. The sides were the same. The steaks were well prepared and very good but the appetizer and dessert offerings for the restaurant week menu were uninspired and tasteless and markedly different from regular menu choices..The standard desserts were quite good, particularly the cheesecake. The dining room was cramped with little ambiance and too many tables very close together. There are other nice steakhouse restaurants in Boston that I would prefer in the future.

Food was great as usual, but the service was lacking. Bartenders seemed overwhelmed. I sat at the bar and had to wait almost 10 minutes to be acknowledged and get a menu.
Food took a long time after I ordered. I was not offered bread like usual. This was at 1 pm on a Friday. Bar was not full, and the restaurant was not very crowded.

Old building, which provides a great atmosphere for this kind of restaurant. Went during Dine Out Boston where ~$40 got me a small salad, steak with an added horseradish crust, iced tea, and breading pudding. (including tax/tip).

Good food, friendly staff. I don't have anything bad to say.

I’ve been there before and it was great. We went for restaurant week this last visit and it was just good. Although tasty, my filet looked like a strip, it was over-cooked and then my bread pudding was cold. The service and the staff were very good.

My sisters, cousin and I were in Boston for our annual trip. It just happened to coincide with DineOut Boston. We each ordered from the offered special menu. The food was wonderful and the price was outstanding. I’ve never had a bad meal at Ruth’s Chris and the special pricing made it all the sweeter.
