Several of us had a business dinner at the Ruth Chris Steak House in Boston's former city hall. All of our steaks were exceptional. the cooking at high heat left them tender while retaining all of the meat flavor. Side dishes were very good but clearly here the emphasis is on steak. Every dish is priced individually and you should... More

Of course the location, décor and atmosphere are fantastic. The food mostly was too, BUT : two out of the three petite filets ordered were inexplicably small-should have been 8 ounces) and thin, and way overcooked (both asked for medium rare and got very well cooked). Now when you are paying between 40 and 60 dollars for your steak, adding... More

Attended a business dinner with 50 peole in attendance. From the drinks to dessert, servers were excellent, very attentive and courteous. I think that is a big part of the experience. The different twist on the Caesar salad was great. The filet was the best I have ever tasted, perfectly seasoned and charred. Family style veggies were tasty and not... More

Dinning in Bostons old City Hall is unique in itself, but when the steak, the wine and the service are the finest, well, it just doesent get any better. The only fault, but it is a personal preference of mine, is that the dinning room is kept a little dark. I would prefffer it a bit more bright.
