Excellent food and great service. I had the lobster bisque to start off, which was delicious. I then had the barbecue shrimp which was very satisfying. They weren't stingy on the shrimp. It is plated with 10 shrimp on a pile of mashed potatoes. The service was great. All the servers were professional.

We went to Ruths Chris per my daughters wishes for a small Confirmation celebration. The service was fantastic. Victor (our waiter) was a great guy, so very helpful and attentive. He made many great suggestions on the food & beverage choices. Two of us had the bone in filet with crabmeat on top, was fantastic. My mother-in-law had the salmon and thought it was the best salmon she has ever had. The other 2 diners got the filet mignon & loved it as well. We also got some sides for the table. The sweet potatoe side was unbeliveable, tasted like a desert, it was soooo good. Also go the asparagus (excellent) and a hash bown potatoe pancake which was excellent as well. Finally for deserts we had creme bruleee (the best I have ever had, crunchy and creamy at the same time and a choclate lava cake that was excellent as well. We will definitely go back.

Birthday celebration for my daughter prior to the Bruins playoff game. Not a cheap night, but one that will always be remembered. Our steaks melted in our mouths and the Bruins crushed the Maple Leafs. Ruths Chris was nice enough to bring my daughter a little birthday dessert, on the house. Very nice ambiance. I would most definitely come back here!

A bit disappointing and the host/hostess team was rude. The staff tried to seat us in the crowded bar area and asked us to "keep an eye open for a table that opens up." We asked to sit in the dining room and after some rudeness and deliberation, we were seated. The waitress was excellent, but the food was just ehhh. For the price we paid and with the multiple options in the city, I was disappointed and the staff attitude was unacceptable.

I enjoy going for my birthday. It's very expensive so I save up MasterCard points and get a $100 gift card. We share a 16 oz sirloin or rib eye, order two sides, a glass of wine, and love the mystery dessert. The ambiance and low noise level are big pluses, too.

Was a very nice experience! Went for our ten year anniversary. The service was the best thing about this place. The music was really nice and tranquil as well. The drinks were absolutely delicious!!! Just the right amount of liquor. Now let's get down to the food I will start with the sides... The fire roasted corn was just ok. The brussel sprouts with bacon I was expecting to be on point and was disappointed. Most of the brussel sprouts was past done almost burnt. And bacon could have been crispier. I LOVE brussel sprouts but I think I will pass next time lol. I ordered the filet. I will admit it was nice and juicy and came out sizzling like snap crackle and pop! It was nice and tender and almost didn't need a knife to cut thru it. I just wish it was more flavorful. I had to add a bit of pepper on top. My husband got a strip I believe and that was way better than mine. He did said he was impressed that it only had one piece of fat on it. But he wished it had a little more flavor. He also cut into the steak at first and it was fine but when he got a little closer to the end it was a little more on the pink side. I'm sorry we like it medium I know some don't but we don't like to see blood. I would definitely go back but not every week. Service it what really makes me love this place.

From the moment we walked into the building, we had a lovely experience. The host was delightful, taking our coats and showing us to our table. Our server was a very nice gentleman, and the food was amazing. We enjoyed ourselves very much and we would highly recommend!

We noted in our 3:30pm Sunday reservation that it was our anniversary and requested a romantic table. When we arrived we were the only guests in the dining room and receive a table on the outer edge but in the middle section (not along the wall or windows). We didn't feel as though it was a romantic table but were fine with it...until they sat the only other group right next to us...so close that they could hear every work we said. They got a nice corner table by the window and although it was a 4 top and we were only a party of 2, with an empty dining room it would have been nice to get that table since a spot like that was requested or at least somewhere else not on top of each other. Throughout our entire meal except towards the end our 2 tables were the only in the dining room. I was disappointed with how much money we were willing to spend and thought of Ruth's as our anniversary dinner tradition which we will not any longer since there was no thought to how comfortable we were going to be at all. I do however want to acknowledge Kyle our server who was outstanding in every way. We were very impressed by him and since they were out of the porterhouse for 2 his recommendations for an alternative was perfect and he even split our steaks for us table side which was a very nice gesture and touch. Kyle made our night and the food was fantastic.....it's a shame that the nice touches were missed and with other high end steak places in Boston it's disappointing that we feel we should try others.

The quaint historical location of this restaurant is an experience in and of itself. The steak was amazing and our wait staff was wonderful. The hostess staff (the 3 we saw and encountered) was less than friendly. No smiles and not welcoming. We found this unusual for Ruth’s Chris as we have not experienced that in other locations.

Food was fantastic. The location in the Old City Hall makes it unique. Host was amazing and so was the waitress. Only complain was the Crab Cakes we had. We were expecting it to be more fresh, and more "cakey". It was a really good experience nonetheless and would recommend it to friends.

We have made Ruth Chris our go to steak house in Boston. The location and ambiance is excellent. Our table was ready on time and our service was excellent. The food is consistently very good and the options and portions are generous. Our party had six adults and we were comfortably seated at a round table. The steaks were explained and cooked to perfection and even adjusted if necessary. I would highly recommend this steak house.

I've been there for many restaurant week lunches. This year was disappointing. The salad and the bread were excellent. The potatoes were not warm; the filet was definitely petite -- looked like a small meatball, little taste and a bit dry, though I did not order it well done. The bread pudding recipe has changed in the past 3-4 years. It's now very heavy on the bread, not moist. A pitcher of water spilled on my table and onto my coat as it was knocked over by a waiter in a hurry.

Waited 30 minutes after our reservation to be seated, due to overcrowding. Lobby/hostess area was extremely packed! Once being seated- everything was amazing! Staff was very polite & friendly. Food was delicious. Manager came over and apologized for the delay on seating, and continued on to other tables to apologize to other guests- which we found very nice! Overall a lovely evening to celebrate an anniversary.

This is the 6th year I have gone here with my sons. It is a favorite of theirs, not mine. We go every year for Dine Out. My sons go at other times and say that the food is different and better when not Dine Out. Next year I am going to try someplace else.
I was so close to the person next to me our chairs were touching. I sat on the right side of my seat for the meal.
