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

We ended up here after spotting the garden/patio from where we were doing the Freedom Trail, and it's just such a lovely spot, we decided to give it a shot to see if they had any tables available. Luckily, they did, so my husband and I decided to have dinner there. It's a funny location, since my husband sat right... More

Had a spectacular dinner! This is the best amongst the many steakhouses! We sat outdoors in a quiet spot in the middle of the city. The service was perfect. Water and wine poured every time the waitress walked by. We were given a wine taste to help us decide between 2 bottles. The steak(filet) was tender and tasty. The salad... More

Having eaten in Ruth Chris several times including Boston it was my choice for my twelve year old's celebration dinner with me. The atmosphere in the main dining room is elegant and correct and dressing well is de rigueur. I checked to make sure the lamb chops at $40.00 were domestic not from Australia or New Zealand. Reassured I ordered... More

We had a lovely lunch in the Freedom Trail Room at Ruth's Chris Steak House this summer. The service was excellent. I had a steak sandwich which was delicious. The prices are high, but the atmosphere is perfect. We had a great tour of the entire place after our meal. It is nestled in the Freeom Trail and has Lots... More
