Diner Reviews
  • "Got the Halal steak - it was good - and even though they only do season with salt and pepper - the flavour was a little lacking The lobster bisque and the swordfish were fanstastic though."

  • "Every time my family and I go to Ruth's Chris Steak House we are completely satisfied with all aspects of dining out. Food, ambiance, Service. Its all good. I recommend people treat themselves to this awesome steak house."

  • "Felt like I was back in the '80's. Décor very dated. Mississauga location much nicer."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "My tenderloin was perfect. Cooked exactly like I asked: Medium rare, and charred on the outside, Chicago style. The plate was piping hot. This kept the steak nicely warm till the end of the meal. This down side are the sides. The veetables were OK. But the mushrums were very ordinary. While the onion rings and both types of potatoes were below average. The wine list is decent, but not innovative."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "the food was great and the service was even better! the only complaint (if you could call it that) was that voices travel (because of the ceilings?) and I can hear the conversation of the group 3 tables away loud and clear! A little distracting from the great food in front of me."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We had a most delightful evening. Ambience, service and food were all top class. We were not disappointed in any of it and will be back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Service here was outstanding and Ruth's Chris was larger than I thought it would be. I wasn't really full after the meal...after all the filet was only 6 oz. so I will have to come here again on a non-summerlicious period."

  • "Had an absolutely wonderful meal, service and time. Always a pleasure to dine at Ruth's Chris."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "First time here for us so thought we would see what they could do in Summerlicious. First problem was that the Summerlicious menu did not come with the regular and wine menus and we had to ask for it. Others also seemed to be asking. The salads were good, but all main courses come with very hot plates "sizzling" with melted butter served at your table. While both dishes we had (6oz tenderloin and salmon) were cooked to perfection, we found that the excess of butter made it hugely rich and by the end of the meal we were trying to avoid it. However this seems to be Ruth's policy but if we went back we would ask to reduce it, if that is possible. We did look like the exception with regard to this. Good value when compared to usual prices."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "It was all about the steak for me. That sizzling filet on the plate. When I saw them on the summerlicious list, I jumped at the chance to sample this steakhouse. And I certainly was not disappointed. Everything else around it was good, but the steak is definitely the star."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Don't be put off by the location, this gem hidden in the basement of the Hilton Hotel has a great 'lounge' feel to it with it's subdued lighting and soft furnishings. The staff were all incredibly friendly but also very professional which made the whole experience seem that much more special. We went as part of the summerlicious promotion and really enjoyed the set menu. Great food and great service, certainly recommend if you like food from the grill!"

  • "We went here for dinner during summerlicious, it also happened to be our anniversary. I started with the corn chowder, which was very good. For a main I had the 6 oz filet.. Ruth's knows how to cook a steak to perfection.. my side was creamed spinach which was out of this world.. my husband got the mushrooms which were mediocre - they sort of tasted like they were boiled, and were undercooked. My dessert was key lime pie which they wrote "happy anniversary" on the plate in chocolate.. very nice, but I found the pie had a rind-ish aftertaste. I can't say enough good things about our server, she was amazing!!"

  • "After a long day of walking tours of Toronto's attractions, my husband and I were exhausted. Albeit late, we were able to reserve a late night supper for us to commemorate our 17th wedding anniversary. I just knew when I asked for the promotional menu offering for Summerlicious, the service and the attentiveness were going to cease. I was so wrong!!!! Glenn checked in on us frequently, and delivered adequate portions of appetizers, the main course (melt in your mouth filet of beef) and side dish (mashed potatoes)- all cooked to perfection. To close a great meal, when our desserts were delivered to the table - hefty slices of key lime pie - the plate read, "Happy 17th Anniversary", in drizzled chocolate sauce! A thoughtful gesture!"

  • "Overall meal was average. The steaks were poor in quality and not to the Ruth's Chris "standard" that I see at their other restaurants. Service was good and ambiance was decent."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Food was just okay, steak had too much fat and vegetables were disappointing. Calamari was quite good, lead us to believe the whole dinner would be too. How wrong we were! Martini was very good! Service was awful. Our waiter was way too interested in her regular guests (one table) to pay any real attention to her other guests. The result being we ended up waiting to be noticed quite often and we did not feel our business was appreciated at all. We will not be back! We will not recommend either!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Honestly, I only came here because I was given a $100 gift card. I knew it would be pricey and I don't mind spending money on good quality food but I believe it was mediocre at best. Everything was very salty, I was left thirsty even the day after! After deciding to splurge on the porterhouse for two priced at $120 I was disappointed when it wasn't cooked to our asking. We asked medium rare and I believe we got rare for the most part. The meat was obviously good quality though. Also, the service was alright. We had asked for oil and vinegar for our bread and was never given it... Probably wouldn't return"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We experienced Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for the very first time on June 5th. We had heard a lot of really great things about the food! It was all true! The food was amazing, in fact like no other steak dinner I had ever had. Will be making a follow up reservation in the next day or two. Everyone should experience a Steak dinner at Ruth's Chris at least once......guaranteed you can't have just one though ;-)"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We were a party of 5. Everyone thought their steak was the best they ever had. We found the side dishes a little small, and paying ala carte, we were a little disappointed with that. Our server was great, very personable also very helpful."

  • "general is ok not outstanding not so many people server is sometimes in a rush"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Great food! The steaks were sizzling! Excellent service! Higher end restaurant for sure - however, the staff are very attentive but not overbearing. We felt very relaxed and comfortable. Good selection of wines available by the glass or half litre. Will definitely go back soon. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "This is a first class restaurant with excellent food and service. It is certainly pricey, but worth it for special occasion meals. Server was particularly helpful with her cautions about hot plates and splattering from hot dinners. Will return in near future"

  • "Received complimentary dessert! I make special remarks quite often on reservations, but Ruth Chris is probably the only that remembered the notes. My cousin had a great birthday dinner with us."

  • "Food was excellent but service was very slow and the restaurant wasn't even that busy."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "My husband and I had some gift cards for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and made a reservation at the downtown Toronto location. The service we received was excellent, from the hostess who greeted us, to our server, and the restaurant manager who came to check on us. Ruth's Chris is pricey, especially if you order wine (which we did), but the quality of the food and the service is very high. It is definitely a good choice for special occasions."

  • "Another wonderful birthday celebration - an annual tradition for celebrating my wife's birthday."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Food is good, service decent but overwhelming (someone at your table every 5 min filling glasses with beverages and interrupting conversation), quite a dark atmosphere (not enough lighting considering it’s in the basement), but above all very expensive…dinner for 3 with no wine (2 beers and one sparkling water), no appetizers, and only one desert was $300...every USA Ruth’s Chris we visited and dined in was better…quite disappointed with whole experience and will neither go back, nor recommend"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "I took my wife out for her birthday. She just turned 62 and, like me, prefers the old-school style of restaurant that our parents took us out to once in a while - like Carmen's Club or Barbarian's. If you want to experience the best in fine dining, make your way down to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. We had Lobster Bisque (outstanding), the small Fillet Steak (USDA- the best quality American beef), and two sides Onion rings (absolutely delicious), and mushrooms (so succulent they practically melt in your mouth). Service was excellent and the Key Lime Pie was authentically Floridian. Worth every cent!"

  • "Food was amazing. Steak was cooked to perfection , atmospher was romantic and even dessert was super . Our waitress was super helpful and kind. The only thing I was a disappointed was that when I looked up menu online they had a dinner special for 2 different prices which they had it on menu at restaurant too but the offers of steak on website was better options. Starter and dessert where same."

  • "Fantastic meal and wonderful service. Portions are enormous and we shared. Outstanding Caesar salad and steak cooked to perfection!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Chose to go here because we got some gift cards and decided to take advantage of them. As we were waiting for our food multiple tables around us had complaints about their orders. The floor manager would come over and 'take care' of the meal but then proceed to give a small history lesson to each table trying to win back their business... this was very annoying. Food was not good my steak (Rib Steak) looked like it was hacked off, didn't resemble the shape of a rib steak. Plus the head of their method of cooking cooked the steak from medium to well done in the time it took me to eat it. My wife's fillet was very tough and tasted more like a sirloin. If you're looking for good steak in Toronto try Jacob & Co. instead.."

  • "I've been to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in downtown Toronto 5 to 10 times, and I've consistently impressed. I got the New York Strip steak, which was perfectly cooked. Definitely one of the best steaks I've ever had. I highly recommend Ruth's Chris for any steak lover!"

  • "My group of friends enjoyed our dinner thoroughly from beginning to end. Our server was professional and very pleasant. All was good until our bill came. It came to the attention of one of my friends that the restaurant had calculated 14% tax on our meal instead of the legal amount of 13%. We spoke to the manager and he said the calculation is programmed. He asked that we recalculate with the proper tax amount and pay that amount. Other than the sketchy tax calculation, we loved the experience and would go back."
