    This is a very good restaurant - top notch, in all ways including food, service, ambiance BUT have your wallet wide open when the bill comes and you realize you spent $130 for the steak (only).

    We chose from the many steak offerings and we were delighted! Cooked exactly as ordered. Alas, in my experience, this isn't so common anymore. The sweet potato side was incredible, as was the chocolate cake with the peanut butter topping. As you may be able to tell, by the time we had dessert, I'd made good use of the superb wine menu. Our server Adam was great, the rest of the staff(hosts, hostesses and bus-boys) were quite friendly. Of our only two negatives, only one could be changed by the restaurant itself: the dessert/drinks menu was a bit out of date. As for the other; guests are like neighbours, you can't always choose them! Overall, we've already recommended Ruth's Chris to others and will continue to do so unreservedly!

    I have visited Ruth Chris restaurant on several occasions at lunch hour with business clients and found the experience to be excellent. Generally we order the seafood options. Food, service, and ambience were all great! Unfortunately this weekend I visited the restaurant to celebrate a birthday and to test out the steak specialty which I have been advised Ruth's is known for. Both my wife and I were not impressed with the servings we had. Ambience and service were both excellent as usual. I will still use the restaurant for business lunches.

    Steak was marvellous! Appetizers were very good. Sides could have been hotter. Disappointed that we sat for 10 mins at our table without being approached and given water or taking a drink order. The bus boy needed to ask us if we had be helped yet and the maitr de had to send our waiter to our table. Once we were finally taken care of the service was good.

    Was impressed with our wonderful waitress. The floor manager stopped by to make sure all was well and that we were happy. I realize that USDA Prime meat is their big selling point internationaly but, I prefer grass finished (Alberta) beef. Hence the four star. This is the home of the best beef in Canada after all. There are ample side dishes available and all is family style. Really like the (very) hot plates so that your meal stays hot while you enjoy the wine and conversation. It also is handy to the Palliser hotel and gets its share of VIPs.

    This was the best steak I have had at a restaurant in a while. I love the way the sides are served - just right for sharing family style, the the sizzling hot plates make such a difference. The meal was fantastic, and the subject of conversation of our guests for the entire weekend.

    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.

    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.

    It has been over 2 weeks since I ate here on anniversary date, however I am still thinking about the food I had. At first I was questioning my choice to eat at an American chain for a special occasion but the food blew away my expectations. I believe they have food specific for Alberta as I had a AAA Alberta bone in Filet Mignon. Service was top class.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
