    Celebrated a wedding anniversary with superbly done sirloin and lobster tail. Our server, Chris, was very attentive and helpful with recommendations from the menu. Our seating was in a semi-private booth, of which there are many, and perfect for a romantic diner. Steak was done to perfection at medium, and melted in your mouth. Mashed potatoes with a hint of garlic paired well with the steak and lobster. Very large restaurant with various seating options for a couple or groups. Prices are higher end, but so worth it.

    Unfortunately our dining experience was disappointing. We were sat at the very back of the restaurant almost like the overflow area & the room was extremely cold & uncomfortable in large open room with little atmosphere. Our service was very slow & spotty. Server checked in only once & we had to send back my husband's steak which was not cooked to his request of medium. They only refired his same steak while I ate mine without him & the potatoes we were sharing got cold. We both felt for $60+ steaks the the quality & taste was not there.

    The food was what one would expect at Ruth's Chris. It did not disappoint. However, the prices were significantly higher than what we are used to paying at any Ruth's Chris and we have eaten at this restaurant in Manhattan, Long Island, Aruba, Washington D.C., etc. Had we known in advance that the prices were going to be so significantly higher than Manhattan's prices, we might have chosen a different restaurant. Other than the price though - it was a wonderful dinner.

    This is my third time to Ruth's Chris in Niagara, but unfortunately I was underwhelmed by the experience this time. They had an advertised menu that included "ice wine" but it wasn't really ice wine, and the waitress tried to argue with us about it being icewine when she didn't really know. The lobster bisque wasn't as good as we've had before either. Overall, the rest of the food was reliably good that we've come to expect. It was an exception to most times that we've dined there and had a very good experience. I'll try it again and see if it really was just a bad night, or if they've made a turn for the worse now.

    We were not happy with the cost of the food. Much more expensive than our Fort Worth Ruth Chris! Our steak was delicious but the wait staff was horrendous. Not just our waitress, but all in our dining room acted indifferent and bothered by each table being sat by the hostess. In addition, the dining room was freezing cold. Three tables asked to be moved in the time we were there. Really spoiled our experience. We are diehard Ruth Chris fans, but we'll never eat again at Niagara Falls Ruth Chris.

    My friend and I had a lovely dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Niagara Falls. We spent the day touring wineries and then had a delicious dinner. The good, although pricy, didn't disappoint. I had the petit filet and it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a nice steak dinner.

    Simple said - not the Ruth's Chris your typically accustomed to dining at. Customer Service: - poor at best - waited in lounge for 40 minutes with reservations on a slow evening - no one to offer drink service while waiting - overall customer care seemed very mechanical Quality: - Steak quality was not what I am used to being served from at a Ruth's Chris - no shoestring fries!!! Integrity: - Ruth's Chris Niagara website menu indicates shoestring fries. Typically a norm on my ordering and a popular side favorite for many.

    More than disappointed with a restaurant which "looks" and DEFINITELY "bills" like a fine dining establishment. The only positive is the décor and ambiance. The food (especially steaks) were incredibly high-priced and quality just not worth it. I was talked out of ordering what I originally wanted by the server because "it wasn't the best meat". Overpriced wine --our choice was unavailable when we ordered it. The server was terrible -- she served a second bottle of wine and didn't remove the first until she was asked to do so, among other things. Presentation for food was unappealing with main courses being served on single plates. Had to ask for side dish for our sides. Our bill was an incredible $800 (for 4 people). Never again.

    I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. The prices are so outrageous as to be laughable. No piece of meat is that good. The only reason we didn't get up and leave the minute we saw the menu is because my husband is squeamish about leaving after being seated.

    Very expensive restaurant. Cheapest entree was $37. The taste is really good though. Your food is served on a plate that is 500 degree so that your food never goes cold. If it wasn't for the $70 voucher that I got from groupon I probably wouldn't have tried it. But I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it.

    We went there knowing it was an expensive restaurant. The food was excellent but over priced by any standard. Drinks or a bottle of wine put it over the edge for pricing. The ambiance is very nice and the service excellent. The only reason I would not return is the price (even for a special occasion)

    My wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary here and were very impressed on many levels. The size of the restaurant is deceiving. It doesn't look like much from the road, but it is absolutely massive (they say it's the largest Ruth's Chris in the world). Despite the size of the restaurant, the way it's laid out allows for considerable privacy and a romantic experience. My wife and I split a Caesar salad, the porterhouse for two, the portabello mushroom side dish, and a crème brulée for dessert. The steak was truly exceptional. Cooked perfectly medium rare and delivered to the table on a sizzling plate with browned butter, the 40 ounce porterhouse looked almost as good as it tasted. I could cut the filet with a fork. Delicious.

    Very disappointed at how fasted they rushed us through the restaurant, even after we told them we were not in a rush. Our apps arrived before our cocktails. My cocktail had so much tonic in it, I could not taste the gin. It was a pity, we did not order more drinks or dessert based on the fact we did not want to get pushed out the door. So even though my son's meal had dessert included we decided to go elsewhere and enjoy a more relaxing dessert.

    We used a voucher from one of the hotels. FYI, vouchers do not cover any alcohol purchased. Everything there is very expensive ($67 for an 11oz filet), moreso than other Ruth Chris's. Service was pretty good, but wish they had told us that alcohol was not included on the voucher on the front end. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides and salads were good as well. The chocolate eruption cake was a little dry. All in all a good dinner, but I've been to better steakhouses for less money and probably wouldn't return to this one unless I had another voucher.

    We made reservations at Ruth's Chris for a special occasion. The hostess walked us by multiple private tables to the main dining area. We were shown to a wobbly table for two in the center of the dining room. We asked to be reseated at a nearby booth and that became a whole production. Dinner for the most part was very good and the service was excellent. We both ordered surf and turf and both lobster tails were over cooked. We asked about the level of service which we were accustomed to at all other Ruth's restaurants that we have visited. There was only our waiter. There was no assistant waiter, person filling water glasses, etc. We were told that the management had cut staff dramatically to turn the bar into a night club.

    have been to Ruth Chris in Mississauga and it was excellent so figured it would be nice to go in NF - wrong. Actual restaurant was no where near as nice. Server was terrible - comments were inappropriate and rude. Service was very slow. They should say at their NF location that it is a sports bar not fine dining. People were wearing tshirts and running shoes - and watching the basketball game. Steaks were excellent - rest is highly overpriced and not that good.

She said fine and took our things and and angerly walked away. It was obvious that she didn't want to take our order and I refuse to spend my money in this place again!!

The prices were much higher then what I would want for an a la carte menu but the food was superb. Quality and presentation were what made the prices seem more reasonable. Our waitress was a wonderful young woman that made the evening that much more special.

    If you've ever been to Ruth's Chris before, you know what to expect. Excellent steaks and excellent service. I've been to Ruth's many times before in TO and Mississauga. The big difference is Niagara is the PRICE!!! I had the Ribeye which was $14 more in Niagara than Toronto. The price increases are all over the menu...sides, desserts, drinks. I don't get it. This seems to be a common practice in Niagara Falls. Anyways, I won't go back to this Ruth's. Stick to Toronto for cheaper prices and better ambience.

    Wonderful food but it was probably the most expensive places we have eaten , including some upscale gourmet restaurants. We had a 8oz filet , a crabcake entrée , a veg , a potatoe , a salad and a bottle of wine($54 dollars -one of the most economical on menu) and the bill came to close to 300$ plus with tip ... No complaints about wait staff or food ,did not feel rushed at all , atmosphere was nice quiet but comfortable.... so save this for very special occasion Can't complain cause we knew going to the restaurant the costs ....

    We mentioned to the hostess that It was our 49th wedding anniversary. She sat us next to a table for 8 (there was several empty tables elsewhere). When our food came, 4 adults and 4 children were seated at the table for 8 next to us...the food was delicious but with the noise it was difficult to enjoy our meal. I had stuffed chicken, my husband had steak, we halfed a potato, and drank water. Even though we had a $60.00 voucher from Four Points it cost us $65.00. We don't expect you to do anything about our disappointment. We don't even imagine you care.
