Ruth's Chris Steak House - Boise Ratings and Reviews

Nice ambiance at Ruth Chris. Service from the waiter was ok albeit somewhat inattentive as there were too many tables’ in our server’s section (over halfway into our entrées before he inquired how we liked). In contrast the busboy was overly attentive, refiling our water glasses after only a few sips.
The food was solid, however, only 3 stars for this level of restaurant. Lobster bisque was a very nice starter. the house salad was fresh however very standard. We both had the ribeye, unfortunately this came out in a pool of butter – the immense amount of butter with the natural richness of the ribeye was too much. Looking at the tables around us the filet was the most popular option, this likely would have been a better choice. The cook on the steak was perfect (medium rare), the steak came out slightly under-cooked but then cooked to the proper amount on the serving plate (at 500 F). The sides of creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were good. Our side of lobster mac and cheese was routine. On the drinks side they have a nice assortment of wines, for cocktails the bartender needs some improvement as I had to send back a cocktail due to it being made improperly.
Overall below average in contrast to other Ruth Chris's I've been to.

We have been to this location many times and had outstanding meals. Regrettably on this visit it was not the case. That little extra touch of service and good food was not present this time. We purchased bottled water and usually they kept them full. on this occasion they sat empty many times. Finished plates sat on the table.
We had the crab, mango avocado appetizer. The mango was hard as a rock. it would have been better just to serve it without the mango.
The wrong side dish was sent to the table. It was corrected.
Finally, the featured desert of the night was not available. Key Lime Pie. That should have been communicated at the beginning of the night or new sheets prepared.
And our server was gone for long periods.
In any case not the Typical A++++++ Ruth Chris we are accustomed to experiencing

My wife and I went there for our Anniversary last week. Over all it was great. The Steak was cooked more Rare than we wanted, but was handled well once we let our server know. Not a place that I could afford to eat at monthly but as a once a year treat it will be. The Cheesecake was to die for. Excellent!

It was great. It was expensive, but worth it for special occasions. The steaks are absolutely the best I've ever tasted. My only complaint is the slightly over-solicitous service, e.g. the wait staff hovers nearby to top off your water glass, even if you only have taken a couple of sips. That's a pet peeve of mine; the waiters should leave you alone with your table guests unless you obviously need help or your glass is less than 1/2 full. It happens frequently in everyday restaurants; it should not happen in fine dining places. That said, it was still a nice experience that we will certainly repeat when we can next afford it. They also bought me an extra dessert since it was my birthday! As a bonus, we had enough left over to have another meal the next day ;-)

very respectfully, i always order a filet, i always order med. server says pink all the way thru,
i say yes, steak always comes very rare, i would say raw to rare, not even close to pink.
you never over cook it, you always under cook it. in the effort to keep the flow of the evening
going, i say nothing and eat a half raw steak.
we just ask you get to cook steaks truly med, the first time.
we will go back, always hope it's cooked like other ruths chris.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary. We were welcomed upon entering the restaurant and escorted to our table in a booth. The table was beautifully decorated with rose petals along with a card from the restaurant. The serving team were professional, knowledgable with just the right amount of friendliness. We felt very special enjoying the time remembering our special date in 1989.

We were celebrating our 10th anniversary at Ruth Chris. Upon arrival, there was a congratulations card and rose petals on the table. Amazing drinks, salads and the main courses were absolutely delicious. Dessert couldn't have been better. To top off the evening, a couple sitting nearby were acquaintances from about 20 years ago. They recognized my last name and came over to say hello. They were celebrating their 37th anniversary. Wonderful evening all around!!!

What's not to like about Ruth Chris? Wonderful people, delicious food, romantic atmosphere for our 45th anniversary. They even comped us a delicious cheesecake for dessert. Our server was excellent - there when we needed her, otherwise she left us to enjoy our food. Looking for somewhere special that's more high-end ? Look no further than Ruth Chris.

We always love the food and experience at Ruth's Chris and this was no exception. My wife ordered her filet medium and it came out well done. JD the manager bent over backwards to rectify the situation and more than made up for the steak. He was great, as a manager should be, the food was great and we will definitely go back!

Boise is a smaller city and there are several high end steak house choices. We like Ruth's Chris for the high quality of their steaks, excellent side dishes and great desserts. Service is excellent and not as slow as some of the other steak houses in town. Love to come here for family dinners, couples night out and work occasions. The one time we had a problem with our meal, the management went above and beyond to fix the problem and we really appreciated it.

We went for my Mom's birthday celebration and it was great. The service was amazing! We really enjoyed our server and she was so attentive. There was one little hiccup with one of the steaks and she was able to fix it in a flash. All of the food was great, with the chopped salad still being my very favorite item at Ruth's Chris. It is delicious! Our party had the petite filet, the ribeye, the New York and the Lamb Chops. All were great, except for the New York. Probably the worst cut of meat I have ever had at Ruth's Chris.
Worth a visit!

Everyone's steak was simply perfect. Perfect temperature and flavor. Everyone's side items were way too cold almost room temperature. They need to be hot. No one likes cold mashed potatoes or creamed spinach. Unfortunately for Boise Chandlers steakhouse has cold side items too but with steaks not as good.

The service was excellent. That is the end of the good comments.
Our steaks were served cold.
The "grilled" asparagus might have been grilled, if so, the grill was cold.
The Caesar salad was drowning in sauce.
Overall experience - very bad.

Another great meal at Ruth's! We took our 18 year old son and friend for his birthday dinner recently and had wonderful service from Nick. We enjoyed well-made cocktails and wine, delicious calamari, yummy bread and butter, lobster bisque, a gigantic steak, delicious scalloped potatoes and corn, and even a Ruth's coffee, a decadent mix of coffee, liquor, cream, and caramel - yum! The service is always spot-on, requests are quickly granted with a smile, and the staff at the hostess stand always greets you by name. We love our meals here and know they will be quality with outstanding service. We also stopped back by to have a drink at the bar the next night and ended up having the tenderloin sliders which were amazing! Great job, all!

If you have never been to Ruth Chris, it is expensive. How expensive? Two people, appatizer, dinners and side vegetables only: $130. The food, however, is fantastic. If you do not eat red meat, don't bother going. Yes, they do have chicken and some seafood but really, it's a beed place and it's very good. Service was excellent, food delicious and the atmosphere quite and somewhat intimate.
Not the exceptional steak this time around...
We've had great experiences at Ruth's Chris steakhouses before but not the best at this one. Although I ordered a rare rib eye steak it came out medium well but the unfortunate part was when it took about 10 minutes for our waitress to followup with us. By then it was really too late to order a new steak since my wife was done eating. The manager came, apologized and said dessert was on the house. Normally we wouldn't order dessert but since they were offering it, we did. It wasn't that great and they still charged us for it. They were busy and the staff was very nice and I've paid much more for fabulous steaks but this wasn't quite worth it. I'll try it again sometime because it could have been a fluke.
Great staff + great food
The staff is great from the time you walk in through the meal and on the way out the door.
Couple that with a restaurant that has great food, all levels, appetizers, main course and certainly great desserts......that all adds up to a great place to spend an evening having dinner.
7th year anniversary
We had an amazing time on our date at Ruth's Chris! Our table looked wonderful with the bouquet and the wife loved it. The food and drinks were excellent. We loved how the entire staff was very friendly, professional, and welcoming. This is a great place for that special evening you are looking for as well as everyday dining. We will definitely be going back!
