This is pretty much your standard Ruth's Chris, which is a good thing. The building the restaurant is in is gorgeous as it was the old Boston City Hall. Steaks were delicious as well, mine was a bit under cooked but was still fantastic. Service was great, portion sizes were good - can't complain much!

We absolutely loved dining at Ruth's Chris Steak House. We enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu which had great offerings at a reasonable price. My tenderloin Oscar was delicious as was the sirloin steak, sides, and dessert (bread pudding). Great wine selection and delicious cocktails really enhanced the experience. We definitely will return!

First time visiting this Ruth Chris in Boston. After many great meals at their sister restaurant in Toronto (which we love), we had to check it out to see if this one had the same high standards. Let me tell you we were not disappointed! The food was perfection, the service friendly and we absolutely loved the ambiance! On our... More

Even though it's a chain and even though I did not have steak this time! My friends and I came for lunch (DineOut Boston) and it was wonderful. I started with the Roasted Tomato Soup which was tasty and refreshing. I had the sizzling crab cakes for the entree and I have to say, these come close to Maryland lump... More

First visit to Ruth's Chris yesterday. Late Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was busy. Greeted warmly and professionally and taken directly to table, using my name more than once. Nice touch. Service was excellent from two servers who shared us. My manhatten was well made and generous. The shrimp appetizer was very good, but presented oddly. Just a clump of... More

The restaurant is very expensive, but the ambiance and the quality of the food more than make up for it. The drink and wine menu is the best around! I've never seen so many of my favorites on a restaurant wine list before, but the menu is huge so I greatly appreciate their willingness to stock so much for their... More

We stayed at the Omni Parker House across the street and ended up having three dinners in a row from Ruth's Chris, all take out. With our take out order, they included a small loaf of wam bread and butter, salt/pepper and utensils, which were more than adequate to cut through the tender filets. They don't have prices posted on... More

What a wonderful experience. My husband loves his stake and had always wanted to go to Ruth Chris’s, he wasn’t disappointed. We had a tuna tartar didn’t match up to the rest of the food. The stake was cooked perfectly. Service was great despite the place being full. Certainly worth the one hour drive.

It has been a while since I last dined at a Ruth Chris Steak House but have always found it to be a delectable experience and I was not disappointed with my first visit t the Boston location in the old City Hall building on School Street.

I've heard of this chain from several friends...now that we've been I'm sad it took so long. Our waitress (Melissa) really knew her stuff from the cuts of beef to the wine, etc. Phenominal steaks! Wife had bone-in filet, I had bone-in strip. Both 3" thick, cooked perfect, full of flavor. Tha ambiance was nice, not foo-foo,very relaxing. Expensive, but... More
