Business dinner for 10 of us. Cramped room. Bad cocktails. Bland food (except the tuna appetizer.) It cost our host a good bit and we just couldn't wait to leave. Ruth's Chris is a place that has come and gone.More

Ruth Chris, makes a great steak, they go out of their way to be sure you are pleased and it's like no other. They sear the steak at 155-1800 degrees and finish it at 750 degrees. Add some of their vegies add a little butter..Wow!

Lovely place, felt a bit out of place in my lumberjack shirt and jeans but the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is second to none and worth the extra you pay, steak cooked to perfection. We would definitely return, in formal attire!

The whole evening was pricey and we expected it. Service was OK. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. Initially we really liked the steaks but after a few minutes, realised that they were heavily spiced and that we could not taste the actual meat....More

This place offers good quality food when it comes to the meat (although steak drenched in butter might not be for everyone, you might want to ask for it not to come in a buttered plate), the only side we had (mashed potatoes) wasn't particularly...More

The location is great, the staff are great and the food is wonderful. The seared ahi tuna appetizer was of high quality tuna, just seared perfectly. The steaks were beautiful, we will be back.

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

The menu is online , you could spend 70 dollars on your steak if you wanted to, so I would say that 70 dollars is a bit on the low side,
