Diner Reviews
  • "This was the fifth time I have come to Ruth;s Chris and I am always amazed at their ability to be both consistent and excellent."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our table was booked for a Sunday 4pm The whole experience from the restaurant, to the food and to the staff was first class. Will be going back when another special occasion arises."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Service was great, food was really good - although I found it a bit rich - even all the sides we ordered were super rich (e.g., broccoli au gratin was really just broccoli with a ton of cheese, asparagus came with hollandaise sauce, potatoes au gratin were very rich but really good). I also found it quite noisy so it was difficult for our business meeting purpose. I would definitely go back though, because the steak was really phenomenal."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "The staff and kitchen at this Ruth's is mature, experienced and totally committed to the our dinning experience. Love it!!"

  • "To preface, I have been to Vintage and The Belvedere, so when I saw Ruth's Chris was included in Calgary's Big Taste again, I made a reservation. I understand this is a modified menu, however, I was not overly impressed with the food. Of course for $35, I got a very high quality steak but good sides are important (esp for a la carte restaurants), and I felt all of the sides were quite average. My boyfriend had the soup, I had the salad, and we both had the mashed potatoes, broccoli and chocolate cake. I guess overall, I would recommend Ruth's Chris for Big Taste- just for the steak alone - but I would not say the experience left me wanting coming back for more. Everything about the experience was quite average (so $35 worth)."

  • "Ruth's Chris provides exactly what it advertises, an excellent steak house experience. Old world ambiance, attentive friendly service and excellent steak make it a perfect downtown outing for a special occasion. It's expensive. Expect to spend $100 per person or more, depending on your appetite and beverage choices. Overall, a very positive and enjoyable experience."

  • "We received a gift certificate as a wedding gift and came on Wed Date Night. Out waiter was very attentive but not intrusive. Menu was excellent and food was good. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Our side dishes were only leukwarm. The hollandaise sauce was cool. The dessert was a good size to share after a large meal. We disliked the staff that were chatting to one another behind our table and the prices deter us from coming again. For the same price we prefer Caesar's restaurant for the excellent food and ambiance."

  • "Second time at this Ruth's Chris and it's the best one i've been to of all of the locations in Canada or the US."

  • "The food was incredible...The service was above and beyond"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Incredible steak! They say it was done in a 1800 degree oven. When asked how this was done. The waiter replied that the 900 degree broiler was on and the lower oven element was on at 900 degrees as well. Truthfully, if a thermometer was put in there-it would just say 900. But, otherwise the steak we had was juicy, and cooked to perfection. Light and airy mashed potatoes, and a rich chocolate cake with a coofee infused ganache on top. Very nice."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Expensive, but you'll get the best filet of your life, and perfectly prepared."

  • "Took my wife for her birthday, and they put special confetti on the table and greeted her by name. Service was good, but we did find ourselves wondering where our waiter was on a couple of occasions (including when we wanted the bill). Food was exceptional all around."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was amazing and the service impeccable. I would definitely go back for any special occasion. It is pricey, but you certainly get a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Though the steak was good, felt that it was A bit pompous and overly expensive. For that price, there are a lot of other good steak restaurants around."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Overall it was a nice evening. The steaks are really good, however it is an expensive evening out. The meals are mainly a la carte so in addition to your main course you have to order side dishes. There are some "value" meals that include starters and sides, however the appetizer choices are limited. The service was good and the restaurant is a nice room with a high ceiling and a nice view of 9th avenue. They also have a limited children's menu that is well priced."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Love the fact this restaurant supports public radio CKUA. My kudos to them for that. My first experience at this restaurant I will call "surprising". Known as an expensive steak house so thought we would take the opportunity of the Dine Out Calgary Special to introduce it. What can I say...... very disappointed. Reservation for two, shown to a back corner table set for four. Service was good but our soup and salad served before our wine in what seemed about 2 minutes after we sat down. No sooner had we finished our first course and WHAM our steaks showed up on plates that looked dangerous temperature wize. What's with that! Don't bring small children here it you don't want a trip to the hospital with second degree burns!"

  • "Went here for the big taste event, the appetizer was a little on the sour side. The steak on the other hand was great. Service was good, the server was knowledgeable about wine."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We were in town for a dream wish for my 11 year old daughter who has an incurable and rare genetic disorder. It drains our finances and I wanted to do something special that we wouldn't be able to normally. So we came for a salad and dessert, both of which were fabulous. We were less than impressed with our server who paid minimal attention to us and was rather abrupt at times. I realize we were not the big tippers on a large bill but deserve respectful and appropriate treatment all the same. I would not recommend this establishment to friends despite the delicious food."

  • "We went to Ruth's Chris during the Big Taste event. The food was fantastic. We enjoyed every bite and will definitely be back!"

  • "food was excellent, service was okay. no one smiled. I found the serving staff unfriendly. A friend went in the evening and said that the staff were very pleasant. Huh... must have been an off day."

  • "The Best Steak in Calgary, and Awsome service. Great for lunch meeting because of the quiet setting, allows for good conversations."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "We did the Big Taste Calgary menu. The choice of soup was minestrone and the choice of salad was Greek. Both were uninspiring. The steak was just okay. The sides were steamed broccoli, which had no seasoning, and mashed potatoes. The dessert was better. Overall rather disappointing food taste."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Poor service, rare filet that was supposed to be medium, ice cold coffee poured in our cup.. Overall it wasn't a fantastic experience. Don't think I would run back anytime soon. Thank goodness we partaking on the Big Taste and not paying full price!!"

  • "My friends and I came to Ruth's Chris Steak House due to "The Big Taste 2014" opportunity. We made reservations for 7pm and when we arrived there were many people waiting. ??? Not sure making a reservation was really needed. We went into the lounge to wait. After >45 min we were seated. Adrian who seated us was very friendly and welcoming. Our waiter Adam was tentive, helpful, welcoming, knowledgeable and freindly. Our server in the lounge even stopped at our table later to visit. The food was outstanding! Presentation outstanding.! Worth the wait! Will return!"

  • "We went to try their Big Taste YYC menu. Steak was beyond decadent in lots of butter. Greek salad was probably the best I've ever had. The whole meal was so rich we couldn't finish. Beautiful view of Centre street."

  • "All I can say is excellent. A real gem that everyone should try"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "My Wife and I attended Ruth's Chris as a special treat to ourselves to an evening of fine dining and a Goo Goo Dolls Concert!. Everything was awesome; except the Prime Rib. I have eaten some of the best beef around and know what is good and what is not. I ordered mine medium rare and chose to have an additional 4 oz. added on. The meat was completely dried out and well done. My wife and I were having an excellent time and she does not necessarily care that much about beef the way that I do. I decided to "go with the flow" and not say anything. What bothers me the most though, is that this is a Premium Steakhouse and whoever cut that meat and put it on our plates knew that it was subpar. I have eaten better beef at The Keg to be honest."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Great place, the steaks are first rate and perfectly cooked. Service was a highlight our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. I would return next time I want a great steak."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "First time to restaurant. Had 3 different servers come and ask us for a drink. Then we had one server who seemed very busy and not attentive (forgot our bread, slow on delivering drinks). Food was OK. Best part of the meal was the wine. Steak presentation was poor and sides were just OK. Dessert seemed like nothing special. Would probably not go back again as food is very over priced!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our lunch. It was fast, hot and delicious. Server was a bit odd - he put his foot on a nearby dining chair to tie his shoe while he chatted with us. We felt he was a little too casual but other than that, the meal was great. In and out in under an hour. Would definitely recommend for lunch."

  • "I took my wife to Ruth's for a Valentines Day dinner. The restaurant was busy but this didn't detract from the service as they were well staffed and we were well taken care of. The meal itself was of the usual high standard we have come to expect. We will find an excuse to go back."

  • "Our 2nd time dining, this time for valentines day. I recommend for special occasion, its pricey but very worth it. Food is amazing, comes out hot. I recommend reservations as it gets very busy on weekends and especially holidays. The lobster mac and cheese is delicious as well as the sweet potato casserole. Over all, its a great place to dine!!"

  • "First, thank you to Andreas, your deft skills managing the floor were greatly appreciated after we were parked into a side room corner. You are a man with much grace and class. The food and ambiance are wonderfully consistent and excellent. We intend on making three annual meals together: our anniversary, Valentine's Day, and our engagement anniversary. Ruth's Chris is that kind of special."
