If I could have given Suzanne, our server, 6 stars I would! Experience was great. Good wine and some nice recommendations to add to our meal. This is a wonderful restaurant, for a nice meal. You should treat yourself

The NY Strip is on point...with bleu cheese crusting it’s like heaven on earth. Side dishes were also good, recommend the cream spinach. Improvements: always have skim milk. A lot of people can’t drink coffee black or with half/half or whole milk. For the price, you should go to the local walgreens and pick up skim...just sayin.

Also, wait staff is okay...could be a bit more patient with customers who are deciding on a meal that is $150+ for 2 people. You’ll get a better tip for the patience.

Prices are extremely high and you can get comparably good , if not better, food at other steak houses in Boston. However, it is still delicious food. The service is fantastic.

Our table was small for two in the way of traffic. Dishes weren’t cleared soon enough. So the table was very cluttered . Waitress wasn’t well versed. Way too much butter and stuffed potato didn’t taste fresh. My husband got his drink and I waited another 10 minutes for mine .

I wish I wrote down the waitress’ name as she was spectacular. The food is always good at any Ruths Chris. The noise was that NOISE, NOISE, NOISE. They can’t control loudmouths. Everything else was great.

We had a wonderful time some of my family was very happy with their steak. Others said it was ok... mine included. My plate was so hot that the butter was sizzling on it and burned. So the outside of the steak tasted like burnt butter. My one year old granddaughter was next to me reaching at everything so I had to move my plate far way so she wouldn’t get burned. Service was very good waiter was so nice. But I have to say that the Ruth Chris in NYC has much better food. Sorry Boston.

I have eaten at many Ruth restaurants over the years and they have always been wonderful. My filet was over cooked when it arrived at the table and of course continued to cook on the hot plate. Salad dishes not removed before dinner arrived. Saw our waiter once after we ordered. Poor!

Tried eating here twice, and both times were equally disappointing. The service starts out great & then fizzles to bare minimum as the night goes on. Food wasn’t up to par for industry standards and drink service took incredibly long (10+ minutes after being ordered). We weren’t checked in on after each course until it was entirely too late to complain. I reached out to them about our issues and they still never got back to me, which shows a lot. There are many steakhouses in Boston to not be on point with service/food all the time. I will not be back or recommend to anyone.

Ruth Chris Steakhouse in Boston is an excellent restaurant with very good food and very good service. The restaurant is very consistent in both food preparation and in service delivery. The ambiance is quite nice and all of the service providers are all well trained and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

We’ve spent more than a dozen significant dates at this restaurant and always had an incredible experience. Last night was very disappointing- mediocre at best. Our service was inattentive and lackluster. Our steaks were served sizzling but our sides were left on a tray across the room. By the time the waiter found them and served them, they were cold and he handed them to the wrong people. Dessert was served without taking a coffee order. Overall very disappointing.

Not the best experience. Both me and my wife got the petite filets. Mine was like you would expect (looks like the picture they always advertise. Hers not so much. It was long and fat at one end and skinny on the other end so it was cooked medium like she wanted at the fat end but well at the skinny portion. This was quickly fixed by the waiter as soon as my wife cut into the steak. Almost like he knew it was an issue when he brought it over. The replacement steak was brought out quickly but again I wouldn’t say that steak matched the expectations for what you would expect from Ruth Chris. We won’t be rushing back.

Server Sam was very pleasant and accommodating to our party. She did a great job. The food was all delicious as well.

We had a party of five and our table was downstairs far away from the main dining room. We actually saw a couple guests complain and get moved out of that section during our dinner. It was far from the ambience we expected being in such a beautiful historic building. She had to apologize that the bar was backed up and our appetizers came out before the drinks.

I gave my valet ticket to the hostess who said it would be 5 minutes. After waiting 35 minutes I went back inside and the hostess couldn’t believe I was still waiting. She said she tried to call the valet but they didn’t answer. That’s when I requested to speak to the manager who came out and had no regard to my complaint. She pretty much said, “ well it’s a Third party company so I’ll convey the feedback to them”

After spending $1,000 on dinner the least she could have offered was to bring us inside from the rain and buy us a drink. The experience should be perfect at Ruth’s Chris and this experience was far from that.

Overall a nice dining experience. Food was good, service was very good. The wines are pricey by the glass and the selection is average for individual glasses. For what they charge for a glass a wine, they can afford to offer the better wines.
