The food was great Yet despite 20+ waiters\waitressess running around on the floor the service was extremely slow and quite inattentive. No one seemed to have a clue

I cannot fault the food or service but $180 for a dinner for 2 is verging on the outrageous - and we had one glass of wine and shared a starter.

We ate in Ruth's Chris Steak House because when we arrived at the Italian restaurant where we had made a reservation for 8.00 p.m. we found at least 30 people, all of whom had reservations, waiting for a table. It had started raining, so the outside dining area was becoming impractical. We foresaw a wait of an hour or more,... More

We specifically went to Boston for the closest Ruth Chris and spent the day shopping and walking around town to see what was new. We went into the historic Custom House for the first time for the tour and loved it, very short and very interesting. We walked through the Rose Kennedy Parkway, which we always do in good weather,... More

If you fancy a high quality steak this is the place. It's pricy but an exceptional experience. The service is great and very professional. The steak is just yummy and tender. Also the ambiance is historic and the resto is located inside the old town hall. The place is rather posh, white table cloth etc so it's best to keep... More

After a disappointing dinner at another steak house, we chose our favorite, reliable steakhouse chain, Ruth's Chris. We were not disappointed and were happy to pay the price for wonderful cuts of meat, properly prepared. We will continue to patronize Ruth's Chris steakhouses where ever we travel.

I held a private dinner on a Thursday evening for about 32 people with a cocktail hour followed by a sitdown dinner. Wait staff was extremely attentive and the food was fantastic. Portions were large and the wine list was superb. Everyone in attendance talked about it all weekend long.

Lovely building in an old city hall. We were a large group who got a bit roudy but the staff were very professional and service was great. food was sensational as I've heard the brand is consistent world wide. My rib eye was cooked as requested and all the sides (we ordered many) were all fabulous. Not a cheap eat... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
