    First time back to Ruth's in many years and did not disappoint. The strip steak was tremendous, caesar salad and shrimp cocktail perfection and ended with a sublime creme brulee. Fantastic!

    The steaks were still dripping with blood when brought out to us and when they brought them back to get them closer to medium rare They came back over cooked and tough. This place is usually delivered some of the best Steaks I’ve ever had but we ordered $145 tomahawk steak and it was literally the worst stick I’ve ever had. Super disappointment

    EVERYONE, from the hostess to the GM, Chris, to our waitress, Sarah, were ALL AMAZING. As always with RC, food was excellent, too. We were in town from KC for my wife’s BIRTHDAY WEEK and had to visit RC as we no longer have one in THE HOME OF BEEF - KANSAS CITY! Chris bother us a couple of appetizers to thank us for coming to RC for my wife’s birthday. Sarah offered service extraordinaire with some great food suggestions, as well. 4 words: EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT! Ruth’s Chris is still the top steak house in the country and this Boston location, with Chris and his team, are the best! BTW- Chris let me know that they’re strongly considering bringing Ruth’s Chris back to KC. YEA!

    The food is always phenomenal. We go every year for our anniversary, plus multiple times throughout the year. We noticed a little bit of a change in the service. Our waiter was very nice but there were a few gaffs—one lobster tail was forgotten, both lobster tails were served with shell (in all of our previous visits, 20+, shell was removed tableside) with nowhere to put the shell (served on same plate as steak, so not a lot of space). We were celebrating our anniversary so we received a dessert with “happy anniversary” written on it (in addition to a dessert that we ordered) but got a $5 dollar charge for the dessert we did not order. Just strange, as we did not ask for it and had already ordered a dessert. The food was still fantastic and we will always return but just some minor things we’d change.

    Poor upscale restaurant chain, no attention to detail and average at best. The sloppy plating and subpar quality quickly reminded myself why I avoid chains.

    I ate there during DineOut Boston. Even at the reduced price, a meal at a serious steakhouse is a rare treat for most of us; you're spending a week's worth of food budget and consuming an entire day's worth of calories in one meal. That said, Ruth's Chris delivered. The service was good without being fussy, and the food was everything it should be. I had the New York steak, which was chewy (as it should be) and very tasty; a small filet was the other available beef choice and would have been more tender. There were also chicken and fish dishes available, but if I go to a steakhouse I'm going for the steak; I would have chosen another restaurant if I were planning to eat chicken or seafood. (Having the other options is good if you're a party of mostly beef fans, but you have one or two people who want something else.) The Boston location has an additional bonus: it's located in Old City Hall, a historic building. I chose to sit outdoors (I'm still wary of indoor dining currently), and it was a lovely summer evening. I saw some of the indoor dining areas on the way to my seat; it's a maze of passages and rooms that I found charming, if a tad confusing. All in all, highly recommended if you're looking for the steakhouse experience.

    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.

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
