Frankly, I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the food, considering the prices. Our server was very very nice, and very helpful despite his short tenure at Ruth's Chris. I've been in the past and had outstanding meals. The place is very special, and deserving of the all the extra attention that must be paid to it to keep it a highly upscale and competitive dining option. Perhaps on a snowy night in February, the place wasn't on it's game. It was an enjoyable evening because of the company. The food was acceptable, but I would have loved to once again experienc the meals I've had in the past. Daniel, our server, was charming. Note to management, address some of the easy things and I think this place could easily return to the high end top notch restaurant I remember from previous visits. But based on Tuesday night alone, I would not recommend Ruth's Chris at this time.

We were placed in a small room that turned out to be very loud. I asked, without success, to be moved due to the noise. The service was slow. My steak was undercooked and I only had two bites. I was offered a free desert as an accommodation, instead of having the meal removed from my check. It will be a while, if ever, before I visit again.

My husband and I had a great time. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we may have been the loudest folks around that night. Even the couple next to us join in with us. Our meals were delicious and plentiful as usual and our waitresses, Kim, was wonderful so were the servers. Always very pleasant.

We were placed in a small room where all of the tables were sandwiched on top of another. Literally chair behind chair, very awkward and was physically uncomfortable. Appetizers and drinks were fine. But we ordered the meal and it took over 50 minutes to receive the food. We have dined here several times below and this was at least double the amount of time we have ever waited. My observation was that all the sides were considerably smaller than before, and my meal (11 oz Filet) was the same if not smaller than the other three 8oz filets that were ordered at the table. Definitely not happy with the slowness, atmosphere, and the food sizes. Otherwise our service was great. She was very attentive and has a good personality. For the amount of money we paid ($600) I was certainly disappointed and wished we went somewhere else. This was a 3 and a half + hour meal.

Great food and desert. We were a party of five and went on a Sat night and it was a small room with lots of table and rather chaotic and noisy. Otherwise, the food and the service was very good. Would go again.

My Dad and I love coming here on special occasions - IE his birthday. It is consistently wonderful! Also, this Ruth's Chris is in the old Boston City Hall building, which is a beautiful location with lots of character. The only bummer this time around was we couldn't find free street parking.

We have not been to this location for a few years. The food was excellent. Our server did not visit our table nearly enough and we found ourselves waiting for drink orders and other items through the meal. Our server was friendly but overall the staff was ok at best. The food was outstanding so we will probably repeat.

I have long held that the quality of Ruth's Chris' steaks and the method of their preparation is by far the best of the major steakhouses. And for the most part it is consistent regardless of the city. The two filet orders the other evening were probably cooked correctly, but were not served immediately: the plates were not sizzling (normally one 'hears' the steaks being brought to the table in advance of seeing them) and the surface of the steaks were simply warm to the touch. Additionally the baked potato with the order was cool. When brought to the attention of the server (not the waiter), he didn't understand what was the matter. The waiter understood and took the plates to the kitchen, but only to reheat them. At the price-point Ruth's Chris occupies in the market, this should not have happened (that tray should not have left the kitchen) and the solution was not optimal. I've been to the RC in Newington Connecticut many times and never had a similar problem.

First visit to this location. We've dined at multiple locations in various states. This was not one of the best dinners we've had at Ruth Chris'. We both ordered the 6oz filets at medium temp. Sadly, they were both overcooked so they were more medium well. The root vegetables were good. The waitress only came back to check on our food, and the end of our meal, and we had to wait considerable amount of time for our plates to be removed. Its too bad that other staff milling about didn't take notice and clear the table.

Not sure we'd go back.

A little disappointing on a few fronts. The quality of the food was not up to normal standards, from the preparation to flavor, something was off. Additionally, there was someone in the upstairs dining room that was ill (cannot get this published with specific details). During the commotion, several tables exited the area because the situation was quite unpleasant. As a result, our appetites dissipated and upon returning to our table, the food was cold. At no point during this episode did anyone offer to reheat our meals, provide fresh replacements, or offer compensation. Additionally, the hostesses continued to seat people during the episode only a table away, while the wait staff cleaned the mess. Overall, this was not a positive experience and one that could/should have been handled differently.

Not a great experience....Starting with the unfriendly hostess. Asked for a table away from the wait staff buzz but we were taken to a table next to the kitchen door. Asked for a change. Most reluctantly the hostess seated us elsewhere. Thick attitude in the air. We did not feel at all comfortable or welcome. Stayed for a cocktail only as our party of 5 decided we would be spending too much for the cool reception and lack of true customer service. May have been an off night but we won’t be rushing back.

My meat was not cooked as requested. The waitress wasn’t checking on how the food was. Since my meat was undercooked, I sliced it and let it cook further on the plate.

Favorite restaurant in Boston! Steaks come out on a sizzling hot plate and they are just so tender and delicious. Brussel sprouts w/ Bacon are delicious and the creme brulee is absolutely unreal. Great work all around.

Service was not we expected, twice the food runner brought over food that wasn't ours, we asked for lemon twice for the crab cakes and was told we will put a wedge in the Togo bag, never got it ? Server was not on her game for a $300.00 dinner with sub par valet, we we were done we had keys handed to us, no car brought to us. Not what is expected, very disappointing.
