We had a fantastic experience here after having a terrible one at the Ft Lauderdale Ruth’s Chris a few months back! The hostess was lovely upon arrival and surprised my daughter when she sat down with Congrats confetti on the table- I had wrote on the reservation we were celebrating her HS graduation- this gesture thrilled her! Service by our waitress Nina was spectacular! She was attentive and just fantastic as were her assistants. Appetizers of calamari and crab cakes were quick and delicious and our party got filets & shrimp, ribeyes and sides of mac and cheese and creamed spinach- all hot and cooked perfectly. We were seated in a smaller room which was nice to have conversation- the evening ended with Nina picking out a special dessert and Congratulations Grad written on our daughter’s plate! This is how fine dining should be:)

First time out to a proper steakhouse in over a year due to Covid and Ruth's Chris did not disappoint. I had the Filet and it was amazing. Service was great and it was just an amazing dinner out.

Diners beware. They let their valet parking contract lapse due to the pandemic and you will need to find a parking spot in one of the local garages prior to going there. Food was just as delicious as always. Great meal for a great price for a steakhouse.

For a very expensive steak house the steak was bellow par. Two of us ordered petit filet and neither was a great piece of meat. Too much fat and gristle. Crispy brussel were over cooked and creamy spinach was more cream than spinach.

First time going. I had the petit filet and shrimp and my husband had the filet mignon. I have to say we both felt our meals were the best we have ever had. My mouth is still watering just thinking about it. We brought our daughter and the children’s menu is lacking and she didn’t like her cheese burger sliders- but if it’s not Mac n cheese she’s not happy. We will go just ourselves again!! Delicious

The food and service was outstanding as to be expected for a a restaurant in this price range. However, on the website the attire is stated as business casual. Many of the people dining were wearing what I would consider extremely casual attire. Mostly jeans, t-shirts, tank tops, sneakers, and hoodies. Nothing I would consider to be business casual, but I suppose it's business casual for a business somewhere. I guess I just expect a better class of dress for a dinner that costs $200 to $300 dollars. I do understand the need for a restaurant to attract diners of every sort in these dire economic times.

Ruth's Chris is my favorite steak house in Boston! I have been many times and expect a certain level of service, professionalism and decorum. Sadly, Wednesday night failed to meet those expectations. My husband and I were the last party seated for the evening but service is not something that should drop off at any point.
The servers had changed clothes and were very clearly rushing us; it was extremely rude. I'm not sure what about my husband and I made them feel that they should relinquish all courtesy and appropriateness as soon as the other remaining party left, but it was offensive and extremely off-putting. It left a very unwelcoming feeling at the end of an other wise very pleasant evening.

The food was good as usual. Unfortunately, the restaurant hasn’t been cleaned in a while the cobwebs in the windows, around the lights and the dead bugs underneath the shutters was dead give away.

It was Mother’s Day, which is like the Super Bowl in the restaurant industry. If you’re not putting your BEST foot forward on that day, I’m afraid to see how it any other time.

Took my family of 6 for Mother's Day. We have 4 boys so opted for the bar so we wouldn't disturb any fine diners. Building / staff attentive and welcoming. Very unique and very-Boston classic in Old City Hall. Perfect pace, perfect food, perfect meal. Ruth's Chris Steak House - Boston made a special day even more special. Great work - and great steak!

Food was great (petit filets, grilled asparagus, hash-brown potatoes), great bottle of wine (Duckhorn) and the service was stellar. The atmosphere was no conducive to the experience. Stark, no candles, drab looking room. I understand COVID and the restrictions on establishments, but some make it work and others do not. This was not the ambiance you would expect going out for a high-priced dinner. I'll wait until the crazy state and local government get things back to normal before trying again for another visit.

Great good and great service but prices just keep
going up and “family portion sides” have shrunk significantly. Getting price prohibitive and that’s a shame. Love this restaurant but they’re getting greedy.

The chopped salad was surprising in its presentation but delicious. The steaks (filet mignon for both of us) were among the best we've ever had. The hash brown potatoes, which they described as only available at this location, were a unique addition to the meal.
