We arrived late on a Thursday evening about 20 mins before closing and I thought this might prove difficult but not a word of it. The welcome was lovely and the food was outstanding. The two men in our party had the gumbo followed by the on the bone rib eye which was perfect. The two girls had the lobster / fillet combo and that too was sublime. A little pricey but for central Boston you would have to be glad to have eaten here. We will certainly be back next time we visit.

This trip to Boston, we were a little tight with cash, we of course, stayed at the Omni Parker House, our favorite hotel in Boston to stay. When you pull up from the moment you leave is incredible. Staff is friendly and helpful, we ended up with a flat tire, and it was freezing out, but the Valet Staff took care of it and made sure we knew where to go and get it fix before getting back on the road. That evening we went across the street to the Ruth Chris's bar for a light dinner, there was a Christmas party going on in the upstairs room, and they were loud and having fun, which put us in a great mood. The bar staff was so wonderful, making recommendations with our choices. They made it fun to be at the bar, and did not treat us as if we were a bother as some places have in the past. It was a Sunday night, and sometimes after a weekend staff seems burned out, not here it was welcoming and great evening.

In our opinion Ruth Chris never disappoint with their food and we have been to many.
In Boston, Ruth Chris is set in the City Hall which is quite a magnificent building.
It is usually quite expensive however this Boston carry their special set menu of three courses for $39, we had the seafood gumbo to start which was excellent followed by 6oz petit fillet steak and shrimps. You also had the choice of two sides with the main that was included in the special menu we had garlic mash and spinach, our dessert was a gorgeous cheesecake.
We finished our meal with coffee and enjoyed the evening very much. Its a busy restaurant so make sure to book if you should wish to go.

Fabulous location across the street from the Omni Parker House Hotel and located in the historic City Hall building. Top notch service and food. Try the "Harvest Salad" to start! We dined Christmas week and the restaurant was beautifully decorated. The staff was friendly and service orientated...the steaks were perfect!

located in the old city hall, this steakhouse offers outside seating as well. I made a quick reservation for later the same night and had a great meal. This is the third location i have been too and they do not disappoint. I had attentive staff without feeling crowded by them, my glass was refilled before i could even think of asking, and that steak was sizzling just as ordered. i must warn you about most boston restaurants, they do close early (9pm) and being i am from NYC I had to rush to get to hotel to clean up and change to come back but once i was there i certanly wasn't rushed in any way. I wasn't too thrilled with their choice of desserts so i skipped that.
