Had a spectacular dinner! This is the best amongst the many steakhouses! We sat outdoors in a quiet spot in the middle of the city. The service was perfect. Water and wine poured every time the waitress walked by. We were given a wine taste to help us decide between 2 bottles. The steak(filet) was tender and tasty. The salad... More

Having eaten in Ruth Chris several times including Boston it was my choice for my twelve year old's celebration dinner with me. The atmosphere in the main dining room is elegant and correct and dressing well is de rigueur. I checked to make sure the lamb chops at $40.00 were domestic not from Australia or New Zealand. Reassured I ordered... More

We had a lovely lunch in the Freedom Trail Room at Ruth's Chris Steak House this summer. The service was excellent. I had a steak sandwich which was delicious. The prices are high, but the atmosphere is perfect. We had a great tour of the entire place after our meal. It is nestled in the Freeom Trail and has Lots... More

Had lunch on the patio, hidden treasure among the historical sites of downtown Boston. Service was first rate, attentive without hovering, and the food was good as expected. It didn't feel like a chain restaurant.

Went to Ruth's Chris Steak House and the food and service were amazing. We had a large group for business, and I had raving reviews of this restaurant, atmosphere and service. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a delicious steak or a place to bring a client! ALSO---bonus is that the restaurant is located inside the old town hall building!

Steak is my favorite food. I'm hard to impress... and for some reason, I usually stray from steakhouse "chains." However, my boyfriend decided that this is where he wanted to go. First of all, the ambiance of the Old City Hall is really stunning at dusk (although if you're going to be outside in summertime, perhaps consider bugspray!). Service was... More

No king, no president, no royal has had a better dinner tonight than my husband and I mean tonight! Our gratitude goes to the host Marin and our water David for talking us into eating here on our anniversary dinner!
