Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "Not very professional for money. Very expensive but food and service worth the value you pay. We went for birthday party and won't go anymore!"

  • "Food was only average. The steak and chicken we had was very salty. Service was great and we have a little both for 2. Found the price to be a little high for the quality of food we received. Would not recommend to anyone to go there because of the price and quality of the food."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "What an amazing atmosphere whether it's for a special occasion or a romantic evening out. In my case luncheon occasion but nonetheless. The service was outstanding! We'll the meals were incredible and I have not tasted anything like that in Calgary for many years! The prices for some might seem steep but it's worth every savory bite. "

  • "Ruth's has great steaks . . . and huge steaks. They are perfectly cooked and more than anyone could eat. Two of us might have shared one. But the side dishes are really disappointing. We had mashed potatoes, which were fine; broccoli, tasted like it was steamed in the microwave with no seasoning at all; spinach, same as the broccoli and mushrooms, probably the most disappointing of all, which claimed to be sautéd, but were rubbery and tasteless. With all that's being done with vegetables in other restaurants close to this one with vegetables and the premium price you are paying here, I do think more attention could be paid to those dishes. But the service is fantastic, staff really attentive."

  • "They food was excellent , but we thought it just wasn't presented great...those plates were so small to eat off of and we were just disappointed with the presentation of the food itself. A little disappointed with the sides..just thought it was expensive for what you got...however, the steak was very delicious! And the staff was extremely friendly :) not sure if we would return for the price of the experience. "

  • "This was my first visit to Ruth Chris in Calgary, I have been to a few stateside and unfortunately the service and food did not add up. Assumptions were made on our side dishes and we were given something we did not order. For some reason the ribeye's were seasoned with too much salt. This was disappointing knowing the quality @ other branches in the states."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Upon arriving was told I could not order from menu. Later saw others doing just that. Hair on pasta salad. Hot items not hot. Poor dessert selection. Poor service. Wanted window, available but never received one. We go often. We have our favorites but the food was ok to bad. I received a mothers day gift certificate because everyone knows I love it. The last couple of times were ok. Are things slipping? "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Can never really go wrong at this place. The mother's day brunch was great, nice spread. Chicken was a little dry, but service was great and friendly. One small item, though, when you pay $55 per person for the brunch, why charge separately for the coffee?"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Very expensive but the food was good. Service was a little disappointing given the price."

  • "Dining at Ruth's Chris. Good scenery, fast and friendly service good food if only the price was reasonable. The meal was comparable to what you get in Calgary at the higher end of the scale just the 100$ additional cost for ambience is a future deal breaker unless of cause if you are spending someone else's money :)"

  • "We celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary. They sprinkled the table with decorations and recognized us as we entered. I had asked for a quiet table and was given one which was ok, but a group of 4 was right next to us and it got noisy when they left and the staff were cleaning the table. The food was fantastic. The beef was cooked to perfection and the scallops were done just right."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "This is a really comfortable restaurant. Quiet surroundings - perfect for a business or a personal lunch. The food is really good but expensive ($39 for scallop lunch special for instance). Friendly and professional wait staff. I like it here and when I feel like splurging, it's a reliable place to go."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "My wife and I came to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday and the food and service was excellent until they got really busy about 8:30. It took us over 20 minutes for desert and soda drink refills. Our waiter apologized and the restaurant comped our deserts, but I expected a restaurant of this calibre to be better prepared for the busiest of times."

  • "You would assume after sending a steak back once that the second time it came out it would be cooked as per requested. We're not ones to complain at all, let alone twice so he ate the steak. King crab legs were not fresh, calamari was cold and broccoli au gratin was nothing special. What was suppose to be a night of celebration ended up in silence and awkwardness. Once bill arrived and my date was gone Terry realized something was up so I told him that his steak wasn't cooked as requested however he ate it so I paid the bill. Manager ended up coming over and offering me a gift card, nice gesture but if your going to offer at least make it for the price of the steak and nothing less. Get bent!"

  • "Been awhile since we've eaten here, so decided to take wife for her birthday recently. We had the porterhouse for 2, which we've had before. It was cooked medium rare as we ordered, but it just didn't taste as amazing as we remembered. It used to be just placed in the middle of the table so we could see it, help ourselves to the pieces we prefer, get to know the tenderloin vs striploin side. This time our waiter simply divided all the pieces up into 2 dishes, and placed in front of each of us! Plus it was cut so blocky, instead of nice strips. Also the side of mushrooms sucked, just white mushrooms in butter. What happened to the assorted mushrooms they used to do?! Service was okay, definitely not as attentive as before either."

  • "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
  • "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."
