Steak is tasty, cooked to perfection. Yummy! Wine is also good. Chocolate cake is great but quite heavy for dessert. Recommended.

Beautiful building, excellent food however staff were not particularly friendly and impersonal. We felt the whole experience lacked atmosphere.

What a great place. My kids have life threatening food allergies - no problem for the staff at this restaurant. Friendly, attentive and fun is the only way to express our experience. Our server was Justin and he was just great. Food was the best and the steak...just cannot be beat by anyone. Fabulous atmosphere and my pre-teen girls loved... More

We visited Ruth's Chris for the first time during Dine Out Boston. The steak was impeccable and the sweet potato casserole was delicious. The dessert, however, left a lot to be desired, especially after enjoying the perfect steak.

Very nice located place, serving quality food. Rib eye steak was served exactly as ordered, both for me and the rest of the group. Side dishes were flawless, bread pudding which I took for the desert was really nice indeed as well. Nice selection of wines. Good service, clean facilities. Recommended.

I went here for my mom's birthday and we were all very impressed. The food was absolutely fantastic. It's a bit pricey, but if you are going for a birthday, for a business meal, or on a nice date, it's worth it. I highly recommend the filet mignon.

My family LOVES Ruth's Chris - it is our go-to celebration restaurant locally & we seek them out at every new city we visit. Unfortunately, this was the worst Ruth's Chris we have experienced thus far. While in a wonderful historical setting, the food was definitely below what we have come to expect and the service was dismissive - everything... More

The building that Ruth's Chris is beautiful - Old City Hall. It's a great location in downtown with so much history. Ruth's Chris is well appointed, but uninspired and feels like any other high end steak house. It doesn't have any personality though the way that Smith and Wollensky, or Abe and Louie's does. Food - fantastic. I've had lunch... More
