We are pretty critical of our steakhouse experience, and none of the steakhouses gets a 100. But, Ruth's Chris comes the closest. Steaks are prepared as requested at a far higher rate than any other steakhouse I can think of (e.g., a medium rare steak...More

The food is good, we ate steak and shrimp. Staff hurried, the noise is deafening. Very uncomfortable, could hardly understand the people I was with or the waiters. Prices too high for good, but predictable dishes.

The service was great, the food was wonderful and the staff were terrific. My dessert plate had "Happy Birthday" iced around the edge, which was nice. The only downside was that the tables were so incredibly close to each other; I had to ask the...More

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel in a former City Hall. After a lot of fish we wanted steak. We were seated in a small basement room with a low ceiling, like an old building, and the noise level was intolerable. So...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
