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!

Felt a bit of arrogance at the front desk... , some of the meat came undercooked and took forever to get it back at the table

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.

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.

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.

The hostess was very rude. Because of Covid there isn't any valet parking. So after finding a near by parking lot with my wife who is 8 months pregnant, we entered the restaurant and the hostess started to antagonize my wife about being 3 minutes behind. It was disappointing and uncomfortable. Definitely wasn't typical of the great customer service that we usually experience here. However, the manager apologized after we explained our experience. Our server was very nice. We will not be returning.
