70th bday dinner; 2 couples
Hadn’t been in a # of years; very disappointing.
2 orders of ribeye steaks. Both very fatty; 1 more inedible as ‘fat’ was more than 2/3 of total steak size and actually touch gristle.
Sides were nothing special: not bad, but just ok for the price.
If you are a connoisseur of crème brûlée, try something else.
Drinks were very good!
Service was fine, a couple things forgotten, but a very busy night.
Property is gorgeous (Old MA State House) and a great location with a parking garage less than 5 min walk.
All & all, would try someplace else next time we crave a good steak. Maybe all steak house chains are the same??
(Don’t remember food quality as an issue in Bonita Beach FL.)

Filet and Salmon entrees were excellent. Dined at a table in the bar and will do that again next time. Our server, Emily was very attentive and took great care of us.
All around good value and good dining experience.

The experience is not worth what you pay for a five star dining experience. The staff look either too tired or too disinterested. I’d rather spend time and money at other Boston steakhouses.

Thanksgiving dinner
My husbands steak was to be medium rare and he received well. But desired not to send it back because we were all already eating. My steak was very good. The mash potatoes and potato au gratin were also not very good. I was not offered coffee or desert. How ever the place is beautiful and you should give it a try.

Had our Thanksgiving at Ruth’s Chris. Food was very good. Service was exceptional (Suzanne in Boston). Cost was reasonable for a three course meal. Lovely room. COVID protocols were followed.

We love Ruth’s Chris because of the incredibly delicious food. We were a little disappointed, however, with our table, which was located right next to the entrance of the noisy room.
Shortly after we arrived, the table immediately next to us was filled. There were several other tables available in the room, which were subsequently used, so I’m not sure why tables so close to one another were seated first. Having the table so close next to us is how we found out there were dinner specials; we had already placed our order and never heard of any. The quality of the entrees was still top notch, even though the sizes of the side dishes ‘to share’ have decreased considerably. We’ll return to Ruth’s Chris again, and hope this was a one off.

This was my first time going to Ruth's Chris and it was a wonderful experience. I went with my boyfriend and we were both very pleased with the service ; our server was very respectful and helpful to us throughout. And of course the steaks lived up to our expectations! I'd definitely recommend this to anyone willing to spend a good amount of money for a great evening.

Due to a national shortage they did not have a few things we were hoping to order, we do understand that this was not their fault but disappointing nonetheless. The wine selection was also limited as well as a few other drinks we hoped to order. The steaks were fabulous and the sides were equally delicious. We will be back.

The poor waitress had the whole room. She ran around as much as she could do. Our veggies undercooked but couldn’t tell are wonderful server to change the order. The Bake potato I do better at home . Totally overpriced for what you get. Disappointed. Our server did what she could. Food was not worth the money. Sad to say I’ll never go back. Pasadena CA is the same. Pay a lot but could find better for a few bucks less.

Love this Ruth’s Chris location but unfortunately our visit last night for our anniversary dinner was lackluster, the hostess, service, and the food, all lacked the typical 5 star feel.

We were so excited to eat some steaks in this beautiful historic building. Our server seemed to be working too many tables. The first 2 bottles of wine we ordered from the list were not found after a long absence. There didn’t seem to be any wine professionals in the building on a Saturday night. The only saving grace was the steak. It was cooked perfectly and very delicious.
