Had such a wonderful dinner here on Christmas Eve 2019 so we decided to come back to celebrate this past Easter 2021. Happy to say Ruth’s Chris did not disappoint us. Our waitress was very attentive, the appetizers, drinks and food were done to perfection and the atmosphere was very pleasant in the main dining room. Will definitely be returning for the next special occasion!

It's rare that everything in a restaurant meal is exceptional. This was one of those occasions. The wine, the salad, the steak, the sides, the dessert, all superb. Wow! A memorable occasion on our 10th anniversary.

This was my first visit to Ruth Chris Steakhouse and I must say it was not what I thought it would be. I don't know if they have lowered their standards because of Covid but I saw many young men with baseball caps at the table, men wearing sweatsuits, like what happened to a dress code?? I'm not saying people have to be in tuxedos but at least dressed nicely. I considered Ruth Chris and upscale steak house like Smith and Wollensky or Morton's. Then the food, what a disappointment!! The mashed potatoes tasted like they came out of a box, the chicken breast although appeared seasoned was TASTELESS. The lobster mac was also unseasoned with congealed cheese on top and watery mac on the bottom. The salmon was good as well as the crab cake app. Unfortunately I won't be back, $200 for dinner for 2 was a hefty price for a less than stellar meal.

Waiter was incredible along with food. If they enforced a dress code on other patrons that would be great.

It was restaurant week in Boston and I was lied to because it was as a Saturday and apparently Saturday don’t count. So instead of paying $38 as promised, I forcefully paid $150. Thanks a lot.

This experience was different from the past few times we went there. The food was okay. We ordered crab cakes for an appetizer and it never came. We ended up getting it the same time as our dessert Our server was great tho.

Dinner with my wife, son and his girlfriend. Our server, Anthony had a great energy and attitude. He was available when we wanted him and gave great recommendations without being overbearing. Understood without judgement our special requests and made sure those requests happened. My wife and I enjoy fine dining with a nice wine Anthony's choice for us was spot on. The meal was spectacular, my steak was cooked exactly as I asked Anthony for it to be prepared (I have no trouble sending it back but not this night). Everyone was thoroughly satisfied with the wine, appetizers, meal, and dessert. That includes my Shepard/Mallinois best friend who enjoyed the scraps and bones we brought home. I can say without reservation that our experience at Ruth's Chris was easily our best in a long time. In fact my wife and I try to experience a different restaurant each time we go to dinner but Ruth's Chris Boston will definitely get another visit sooner rather than later based on our outstanding meal and Anthony's superior service.

Food was amazing as usual. Everything was cooked perfect and tasted delicious. The only criticism I have is the wait service was poor. It took about 25 min to just get our drinks, and rarely checked on us. That is not the type of service expected at Ruth Chris. Fortunately the food was perfect and we had a nice experience as usual.

Had a small pre birthday dinner to give a family member a big gift for their upcoming 50th. I had called ahead to schedule to have a dessert brought to the table with happy birthday on it. I told the girl that it as a surprise and to note that it was.

As soon as we have our name, the fuel at the desk asked who has the birthday. We said nobody to try to cover it up. As we walked away, I let her know that it was supposed to be a surprise. Not even the worst part.

We sat in a small room downstairs that had a view of chairs stacked up outside the window. The server seemed to be new and was just ok. Those assisting her were a bit rough. Someone came to fill our water glasses and spilled water and then filled them to the brim so you could not pick it up without spilling it and making more of a mess.

Our food was good but was not the usual deliciousness of this restaurant. I understand that they serve your steak on a hot plate, but mine looked like it had been used previously and looked dirty. I have never experienced that before and my friends did not have that issue. A desert was brought out so that went as planned.

The whole experience was such that we probably will not return. There are too many other restaurants that are great steakhouses and I would prefer to spend our almost $700 for 4 people for drinks and dinner only. No apps, salads or desserts.

To add to this, the GM responded and sent a $100 gift card for us to return and give them another chance.

Please place professional wait staff at this location. I’ve been here several times as well as the one in Washington DC and Crystal City , Virginia. For the most part , served my own water , wine , and at one point after about 20-30 minutes left my table to search fir my waitress to be told that I wasn’t the only table. She was a nice young lady but clearly not up to waiting at Ruth’s by miles.

We have frequently eaten at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Palm Beach, but never before here in Boston. The food was superb in all respects, with the filet especially tasty and prepared medium rare as requested.
The ambiance in the small room in which we dined was less than imaginative, but acceptable given the constraints of the pandemic.
We shall certainly return in the near future.

Serge is the best! He made the "we are out of the house!!" experience even better. We love to dine out and even more so when someone makes you feel special. We had a ball! Thanks for a great evening!
