  • "If you like butter and steak than this is the place for you. Summerlicious menu was very good."

  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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
  • "general is ok not outstanding not so many people server is sometimes in a rush"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "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 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."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Food was excellent but service was very slow and the restaurant wasn't even that busy."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Fantastic meal and wonderful service. Portions are enormous and we shared. Outstanding Caesar salad and steak cooked to perfection!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "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.."

  • "Anniversary dinner. Ordered from the classic prix fixed menu. Excellent filet , good salad and scrumptious dessert . Good value."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "I would recommend Ruth Chris as a great steak house . Service was outstanding . As the old saying goes Try It You Might Like It."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Went with a friend and ate the t-bone steak. I ordered two sides not realizing just how generous their portions were, and ended up having to take my sides home. One side is enough for most people. Everything was cooked to our liking and surpassed what we expected in size and taste. I would gladly come back for the next special occasion."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our regular pre-opera dining experience at Ruth's Chris. The food and service is 5 star and we would like to send our highest regards and appreciation for the efficient and friendly and helpful service we always receive from our waiter "Tapash"."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I got to my hotel late, it was pretty cold out so I ate at Ruth cuz it was located in my hotel. There are so many good places to eat in Toronto I would go elsewhere. I have been to several Ruth's the ones in TO are not so good"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "I'm a BIG fan of the HOT steaks Ruth's Chris serves. Unfortunately this time my steak was too well done, however, I was too hungry to have it re-done. They ran out of their AMAZING shoe string fries which was so disappointing, especially since I live quite far! I ended my meal with the pecan pie which was very good. Our waitress was very polite."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I was very pleased with the food. It was prepared perfectly and served in a timely manner. Our waitress was very kind and thoughtful. The only thing I didn't like is that the table for 2 people was a little big so with the other conversations around us made it a little difficult to hear one another. Based on our experience over all we would definitely go back sometime in the future."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Food was phenomenal as was the service and staff First time and I was very impressed - will go back"

  • "Repeat customer who enjoys the food. It was decided to take my fiance there for Valentines Day. There were a few disappointments that I would like to share. 1. We received gift cards (4x$50) to use. During payment we were told we could only use a maximum of 1 each. Although I understand the rule, I wish we knew about it before it was actually time to pay. Thankfully, I had another method of payment but I would imagine this could be problematic for some. 2. A fixed menu. Being repeat customers we had intentions on ordering something we enjoyed in the past. Unfortunately, we were forced to only choose from a limited menu. Again, I have no issue with the rule as it was Valentines Day but we did not find out about it until we sat down."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I love the hostess and the way they welcomed us. We didn't know about the set menu for Valentine's Day, so it was kind of surprising and very pricy. But the food was great. We really enjoyed it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have dined at Ruth Chris on a number of occasions and I have always enjoyed the experience. This was especially good as we were seated in the Fireplace Room off the bar. It is a small and intimate dining room. We sat by the fireplace which was not active and beside a bookcase, felt like home. The food was immaculate. The Filet Oscar was excellent always cooked to perfection and the crab cakes are the best I have had. Always look forward to the bread basket and fries. My favourite food in Toronto. Would like to see Alaskan King Crab on menu. I am generally critical of businesses that do not provide what you are paying for but at Ruth Chris there is nothing to be critical about."

  • "The service was amazing. I had the stuffed chicken with mashed potatoes and I enjoyed this meal immensely. My friend had the fillet with mashed potatoes and she had the same experience as myself. She even went as far to say she thought the fillet was small but that she was more than satisfied by the end of the night."

  • "The food at this restaurant is consistently good and I look forward to going back for the next summerlicious aand winterlicious"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "My wife and I went for Winterlicious. We both had the Caesar salad for a starter, which was fine, nothing notable. I had the stuffed chicken breast, and she had the filet; both were amazing! I had the sautéed mushrooms for the side, and she the mashed. Both ok. We both had the cheesecake for dessert, which was good. Also, my wife had a blueberry mojito, which she said was really good. The only thing I didn't like was the bread served, it was very hard. Other than that, the server was professional and the service was great!"
