  • "We really enjoyed our time at Ruth's Chris, our server accommodated my allergies and was very knowledgable about the menu. The speed of service was amazing as each dish took only a few minutes. The tables are very long which can make it hard to hear one another, but this is to make room for the food and drinks. The steaks were cooked perfectly and I doubt any other resturaunt could match their speed of service."

  • "Have been to many Ruth's across US This one not up to standard The potatoes au gratin were runny - basically just overwhelmed in partially melted cheese The berries with cream should have been advertised as cream with very few berries The steak was good and the service good However for the price you pay you expect all aspects of meal to be "perfect""

  • "We have been to other Ruth's Chris in NA. So far Calgary is the best. Also nice that they have responded to local demand and serve AB beef in addition to the same-old-same-old USDA. Serving staff is mature and courteous."

  • "They definitely have the best steaks ever, service was great, food was fantastic. I dined in at a lot places, Ruth's Chris definitely deserves the best restaurant in calgary. Also they have a great portion for the price. I've been to Ruth's Chris Calgary more than 10 times and I'm never disappointed."

  • "Went to Ruth Chris with my wife. Richard was our server and he was an expert on everything on the menu. The steak and sides were amazing. Will be going back again!"
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "Always have an amazing experience at Ruth's Chris. Food this time was outstanding! Their seasonal menu was so good looking, we only ordered from it. Tomahawk steak (Canadian grain fed) was more than enough for 2 people and super tender and just amazing! Lobster mac and cheese... do I need to say more? Actually it should be on their regular menu! And the sauted wild mushrooms were very good too. Debatable if the regular mushrooms are better (much bigger pieces), but both are still perfect! They always do something special for birthday's too. =) Can't go wrong with Ruth's Chris for steak and a special occasion! Just might have to pay for it."

  • "First time to Ruth's Chris steak house, the whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. Our waiter Jordan was very helpful and professional. He took the time to go through the menu and explained some differences and Ruth's. Our booth was large and comfortable and it was cool being able to look up centre street from the restaruant. The Food was fantastic!! The Best steak I've ever tasted. AAA Alberta beef, melted in my mouth, not a need for any extra seasoning or steak sauce. Loved the super hot plate that kept my steak warm throughout the meal!! My wife had the salmon and mother had the crab legs which both were great. Loved everything, except a bit pricy."

  • "Upon entrance we were greeted and seated immediately. Some of the friendliest and courteous staff were there to educate, serve, and overall create the best dining experience I have, by far, ever had."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The food quality and service were exemplary. The view was abysmal and if it weren't for the company, the $200 price tag would not have been worth it. Honestly, in what scenario would a 10 oz steak, a small steak, scalloped potatoes and three 6 oz glasses of medium quality wine come to that much?"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Excellent service from the minute we arrived to us leaving. Food was excellent server explained menu and what we ordered did not dissappoint would highly reccommend"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "the food was very good. they do steaks like nobody's business. however, extremely expensive. you can only go there if the company's buying or once a year, at most. there are no sides included with the entree. don't forget that because the addition of sides adds greatly to the price."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Great place, huge portions, and very romantic with a beautiful city view."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Unfortunately one of the steaks twice came back severely undercooked (purple raw) - a new steak was provided to the correct temperature on the third attempt. Was told that there was somebody new to the broiler working as the main broiler chef was off. Not the greatest excuse but we were provided with a full replacement of our side dishes as well as desserts for everybody on the house. In the end worked out nicely."

  • "I took my friend out for her birthday and we both loved it. We both thought "the best steak every" Its is a bit pricier then I expected but it's worth the extra dollars. Our experience was really great. The staff were very pleasant and courteous. I would definitely go there again. :)"

  • "When ever we need to go for a great steak experience we go to Ruth's Chris. I tried the halibut and the wife had the petite filet and they were truly delicious. The view of the city was nice. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The restaurant knew we were celebrating my son's birthday and when we arrived, our reserved table was sprinkled with "birthday" party decals. What a nice touch! The evening only hot better. Great service, exceptional food."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Pretty much the same as any other Ruths Chris, which is what makes it attractive to us. Nice to know what to expect. The only negative comment I would make is that the elevated platform is noisy when people walk by. Adam was our server, and did a fine job. It was interesting that we were in the restaurant one year ago, and he served us then and we remembered one another. That doesn't happen often. Good to see continuity with employees."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Situated in the Calgary Tower in downtown Calgary, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse serve some of the best, if not the best, steaks in town. Steaks are cooked to perfection and cuts of meat are carefully selected and prepared. Side-orders are well selected and even better prepared. The waiters are highly knowledgable about the menu and the extensive, well selected albeit slightly pricy, wine list. The quality of the food is consistently high and in the three years past, I've not had a disappointing experience - whether it was for smaller, private dinners or larger work-related functions. Love the private, professional ambiance. A bucket-list item for any visit to Calgary."

  • "We went here for the Wednesday night date menu. It was perhaps the best steak I've had in a long time (petit filet - medium rare). My spouse had the stuffed chicken which was perfectly prepared and flavourful. We would definitely return and recommend to others."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This restaurant has always surpassed my expectations in the amazing flavour, juiciness, and tenderness of their steaks. It is an experience to even taste one of their finest cuts. However the experience does not stop there. Everything from their garlic bread to their cake is made professionally and is absolutely delectable. A proper review of Ruth's Chris would not be complete without a word about their staff. The staff has consistently been incredibly friendly and personable. They are always joking and fun while providing a first class dining experience."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My medium-well steak was charred outside which made the baseball-cut steak very uneven to eat. I had to ask the manager to top up my water, perhaps none of the four server assistants and the server herself, can keep track of our water choices. Also, it would be nice to let the guest know that the sparkling water will be an addition on the bill. Some of us would rather invest in a couple of glasses of wine instead of a bottle of San Pellegrino. Our side dishes were sautéed mushrooms and mash potatoes. They were very bland, but went well with the heavily seasoned main courses. No complaints on dessert, the gluten-free chocolate espresso cake is supurb. Unless someone can convince me on a great dish, I will not try this again."

  • "The service, food, and ambiance were all outstanding."

  • "We tried the petit filet (mignon) and it was done melt-in-your-mouth perfectly. Rarely been pampered by staff as much as when we ate here. The "date night" Wdnesday is a great deal for a couple. Definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We really enjoyed everything on our date night and were very pleased by the extra effort taken by the staff to ensure a wonderful Birthday celebration. The food was delicious as always and the friendly attention was greatly appreciated. This was our third visit. Unfortunately something that I ate that night caused a major migraine early in the morning. I am not sure if it was the high level of sodium or what, but I haven't had that kind of reaction before. I am not a migraine person, so this was not expected at all. I sincerely hope that it wasn't something that I ate, but it does seem that way, and this may affect our decision to return in the future."

  • "I'm not one for 'steak' restaurants but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the quiet ambience (we could have a conversation), the service, the decor and the convenient parking. That said, it is a wonderful special occasion place for us. Prices are steep, good for the 'business account' crowd or if you are celebrating a birthday or other event."

  • "Excellent Dinner, wait staff was excellent. Our waitress was amazing, Katrina. Steak with lobster was Amazing! Would recommend for any special occasion or just dinner out!"

  • "Fantastic meal ... it seemed pricey, however, given the quality of the food and teh generous portions ..it was well worth it !! Definitely a place you want to spend a few hours enjoying the meal, an the company!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I can't rave enough about the great steak ... So delicious! My only negative comment would be the wine list I would have enjoyed a glass of red wine with my meal but I can't justify paying $16 a glass. That was the cheapest the list. If it was just a bit cheaper it would have been the great dining experience."
