I was part of a business group, brought along as a guest along with my two teenage sons. What a wonderful evening. We were impeccably looked after, and feasted on wonderful steak and all the trimmings. The room is glamorous and it was a pleasure...More

The steaks are really quite good, though in my opinion an infrared cooker just can't produce the same complexity and richness of flavor as a real flame with real smoke. The interior of this Ruth's is very attractive, like a high-end colonial tavern, but the...More

Stopped in at end of busy day in Boston for my birthday dinner with my family. Felt a little under dressed, but staff were very friendly and knowledgable regarding the menu. Steaks were delicious and the shoestrings fries were a great partner. Quite expensive but...More

We had a special dining room booked for our business dinner and this was very nice. Steaks were also excellent as well as the side dishes - all original and tasty. And the good surprise came with the French waiter - from Lorraine - who...More

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
