Beautiful atmosphere. Dined in a room overlooking the cobblestoned entrance to Old City Hall. Room was smaller and quite cozy. Only 4 tables in the room. Service was great. Waiter made excellent suggestions. New menu is staring next week; tried a new offering- filet on the bone. Delicious. BBQ shimp was fanatasic also. My two 14 year old boys loved... More

Had a wonderful date night this past winter. There was a bit of a wait even with our reservation but that is to be expected on a weekend in Boston. We headed to the bar to grab a glass of wine and soon enough the hostess was showing us to our seats. Steaks were amazing and perfectly cooked! I added... More

If you like to have an overcooked steak five yards from the grave stones, then this is a place for you. We went there for Friday family dinner (1st time) and will never eat there again. Who thought about serving steaks on 500 degree plates??? We ordered medium-rare prime rib and medium-rare lamb chops – both had no hint of... More

We live in NE Ohio, and their Woodmere (Cleveland) location closed 4 or 5 years ago. :-P Usually it is a special occasion place for us, but now we try to go whenever we're close to one! The Boston location is right downtown, and we walked there from the Onyx hotel on a beautiful, hot summer night. We decided to... More

We had purchased a package deal which included a dinner at Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Boston. We hadn't been to one before and let me say it was special! We were impressed with the combination dinners and selected from that portion of the menu. My filet was sooo tender and cooked to perfection. This choice also provided a very tasty... More

We went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Boston on July 5, 2015 to celebrate my birthday. We also went to meet our friend Tony. He is one of the bar tenders/servers. We followed him from the now closed Ruth's in Providence, RI. We got to know him and many others of the staff from there. We had reservations for 6:30... More
