We were very pleased to be part of a family celebration last night at Ruth Chris Steak House in Boston, MA. INCREDIBLE! This was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. We had a private room for 11 of us and the meal was totally relaxed and unhurried. Service by Andre and Mario was impeccable, a beautiful mix of professionalism and warmth. We were made to feel completely welcome and valued. The food was incredible. We had a variety of appetizers, including lobster bisque, wedge salad, and Caesar salad, all excellent. Among our main courses, the steaks were declared uniformly excellent, "melt in the mouth" tender. I had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked. Our servers recommended sharing sides due to their size and we complied with sweet potatoes, French Fries, shoestring potatoes, asparagus, and creamed spinach and onion rings and had some left over. The cocktails were VERY generous with the main liquor ingredient and well made. Desserts were very large, easily enough for two and delicious. I have read some of the negative reviews and can't imagine where those people ate! We loved it, and would highly recommend it.

One of the worst meals of my life. We were a group of 10 people on a Saturday night .. Service: average .. Food: HORRIBLE .. No one could eat their steaks, salmon completely over cooked, lobster was old had to return it, sea bass average .. I don not understand how a restaurant so prestigious and so costly can serve a dinner so bad .. PLEASE do not waste your time and MONEY with this restaurant, seriously very very bad. We called the manager and complain about our experience that night, he was very concern buy still a big check for a horrible food..

After having to wait for 25 min and this after confirmed reservation and showing up on time we have been guided to the basement in a small side enclave with six tables and plenty of noisy neighbors.
Highlight of the evening wasn't the food but the wine. We received the chosen wine not of the year indicated in the menu, but luckily a one year elder one we really liked and enjoyed as this yeas was simply one of the best years since a while. This was a significant improvement. The food was good, within the expectation for a restaurant in this category.

My husband was in town for a conference and Ruth Chris was across from the hotel as you enter the gate to the restaurant you see historical statue along with this beautiful building which was probably seventy years old. This the prettiest and most romantic one I have seen to date. The waiter and service was impeccable, and the food is as always no less than five stars. Wonderful place for dinner.

Great venue for a restaurant, and you certainly pay for it, very expensive place. The starters of ravioli and lobster bisque were very good. His steak was good, my lamb chops were full of gristle and fat - fries overcooked. Luckily after complaining they did remove the lamb from the bill, would not go back.....
