“Lovely steaks in a romantic setting”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Room was darkish and more romantic than the usual RC. Our food was delicious and service was adequate but lacking charm. It was quiet which was the first time in a RC where we have found this. Nice view of fairy lights in one window and graves in the other! We would return.

“Delicious steaks”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Had a meal here recently. Steaks were absolutely delicious. Good ambience and setting, but it did feel really dark. We had a table downstairs by the external wall and when the air con clicked it, it was really cold! Portions were a good size and the sides were tasty too. It does seem expensive.

“Spooky!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

A steakhouse with a view of the cemetery! Sounds macabre, doesn't it?!!! When I asked the hostess if I could dine in their fine establishment without reservations, she fled because she saw gentlemen in vampire suits (Twilight types) by the door and wanted to seat them first. The waiter made Lurch seem warm and cuddly. The only person who saved the day was the friendly busboy who answered my questions about the cemetery next door. He said all the "former occupants" have been transferred to a different location.The steak was ok, but not to-die-for. All-in-all, a slightly ghastly experience!

“Old City Hall”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great location in Old City Hall in Boston.

Food and wine was fantastic as usual.

Only negative were tables and chairs are too close together.

“Awesome ”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Ruth Chris restaurants are generally all quite high quality. There are a couple exceptions but this is not one of them, it's great. And the building is also cool. The cowboy ribeye is the best. Love every bite.
