Great steaks and potatoes augratin but nothing special.
Having had the opportunity to eat in quite a few of Bostons 'Best' steakhouses, I'd have to say that for the most part, all of them offer up great food, but what sets them apart is service/atmosphere. Ruths Chris has to be the friendliest and most relaxed of the fine steakhouses in Boston. For my money, if we are going to go out and spend over $200-300 for food and wine, the service better be exceptional, and at Ruths Chris, it is. If you can only choose one steakhouse in Boston, you will not be disappointed you chose this one.
Given the high price, this was very disappointing. The service was bad, with both the front desk and the waiter being frankly brusque. The meat was very tasty, but there is really no need to serve it on small 500-degree plates that are impossible to go near and hard to put the sides on. The setting is lovely, in the Old City Hall. But I would not go back.
Steak was good, though not special. The service was bad. After we were given a dessert menu, our server seemed to tatally forget us.She never looked at our table. After many failure to pick her notice, finally we secceeded to make her come to our table to take order, but she seemed to be even displeased to be called. In addition, the dessert which we waited for ages turned out to be disaster.Creme brulee tasted a hint of onion...We guessed that the restaurant uses same dishes for creme brulee and potato gratin... We paid 10 dollars for the creme brulee which tastes like onion, funny! I never go to Ruth's Chris again.
