We came here for Christmas Dinner. We had a reservation and were seated promptly on arrival. Surprisingly our servers name was Chris - Ruth's Chris at Christmas with Chris as our server, an omen. We were seated in a smaller vault room in the lower level with only six tables in the room. Made socializing easy. My wife had there Rosemary Raspberry Cosmos and I had a Makers Mark Manhattan, Both drinks served in nicely chilled glasses and our server even made sure we got the shaker rocks on the side as requested. Drinks were very good. We shared a shrimp cocktail and enjoyed those with our drinks. We were not rushed to order and finally each selected the Petite Filet. My wife had the twin tournedos of beef (two 4 oz. filets) with shrimp and I had the regular 8 oz. Petit Filet with a Lobster Tail. We only ordered one side (the pecan sweet potato casserole). Steaks were cooked to a perfect medium rare and served on super hot plates, don't touch - burn the baby. We savored each bite and split the shrimp and lobster tail. We each took half of our steak home and we so enjoyed the sweet potato casserole we ordered another to go home with us. We split the white chocolate bread pudding and it was nice and warm with a gran marnier cream sauce to put on top. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner and service was great even though it was Christmas and they were very busy, Restaurant is no more pricy than any of the other larger Boston Steakhouses but I always feel they are all overpriced. Not great value but always a great steak.

This location is definitely NOT what you expect of the Ruth's Chris experience. Completely disheveled from the moment you are greeted, at coat check, in the bar, and the entire service experience. Very "rough" clientele. Pretty bad when they have to post a sign telling patrons to please take off their caps. Apparently sweatsuits are OK though. Definitely not what Ruth Fertel had in mind when she decided to franchise. Food was great but service VERY poor. I've had a better overall experience at a Texas Roadhouse. I could go on forever with details of all but I would run out of room.

Sat at the bat on a packed Saturday night and drank and ate our way through the appetizers, seafood, and one or two too many delicious cocktails. (Good thing we were staying across the street at the Omni) The restaurant is absolutely beautiful located inside the Historic City Hall. As with all Ruth's Chris it is expensive and worth every penny. Impeccable service.

This is easily the best Ruth's Chris I've been too. For one it has a gothic look and the layout is various mini rooms. But they also consistently deliver the best Black and Blue and also Medium Rare Steak you can get (my style). Service is great. You may have to wait a bit as they don't seat immediatley even with reservations most of the time.

We have dined here many times and overall food, service , and quality was always very good. To exceptional. On nov 22nd we attended a mondavi wine tasting dinner. The wines were top notch, however the food was very disappointing. We started out with ahi tuna canapé. They were fresh and flavorful. The problem was the waiters walked around from table to table with platters and only came by twice, so we had 2 small appetizers. It would have been better if they left a platter at each table. Next course was a butternut squash soup which was very good. The next course was lamb lollipops. One per person. These were fatty greasy and below par quality. Next course was a 6oz fillets with a mushroom Demi glacé. You would expect each fillet to be uniform which was not the case. Mine was flat and well done. Others at our table vary in size and temperature. I sent mine back and the kitchen got it right the second time.

I came here for dinner with wine, the quality and portions of food was subpar for the price we paid and caliber of this restaurant.
