Simply put , this is both an excellent steak house with good service and a chance to eat in one of Bostons historic buildings.

We had steak and chips (fries) and despite the arrival of a mouse at someone elses table (expertly handled by the staff) had one of the best meals we've had in a long while.

Thank James C

“Fab place”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had lunch here. Really good food. Lovely friendly service. Beautiful setting. We sat outside on the terrace but inside the restaurant was stunning and very elegant. Price isn't as high as you'd expect for a restaurant like this in a preserved amazing building.

I have never been to this restaurant and it was fantastic. Our servers were Andre and Mario was were truly gentlemen and offered service that was exemplary.
The food was great such as lamb chops, wedge salad, shrimp and delicious desserts. I loved the drinks which were excellent and delicious.

“The BEST. Could not believe it is a chain! Go here!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

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.

“VERY disappoint, really bad food..”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

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..
