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!

My husband had dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Washington, DC in April and he loved it. So he took us (family) for Mother's Day dinner at RCSH here in Boston because he wants us to experience it since he loved it in DC. He was right, the food was superb. I had Lamb Chop and the rest of... More

We visited Ruth Chris Steak house while in Boston with our son. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was very nice. I did not have steak but my husband and son did and they enjoyed it. I had seafood and it was good but not great.

We had a great meal here Sunday. The steak was cooked perfect. The staff was very attentive, keeping our water glasses filled without asking. Our entire experience was great.

Recommended by a local resident, the Restaurant is in the Old City Hall. Welcomed, we were taken down into a dark cellar-like room, and strangely placed right next two other diners, although there were plenty of other tables free. No chance of a romantic meal then! Rather felt we were being pushed to order larger portions than we actually wanted.... More

I visited this restaurant as a part of a work trip, I believe we were close to 15 guests total. The service and the food were both excellent, our server in particular was very knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic in talking about the dishes available. I myself took the NY strip steak cooked to medium-rare, the temperature when it arrived was... More
