    I have long heard the buzz about Ruth's Chris Steak House, so I decided to take my wife there for a quiet night out. We arrived kinda late (9pm, restaurant closes at 10:30) and were seated in the private library area of the restaurant. Nice ambience. Our waiter Glenn was very attentive, appropriate. We ordered off Ruth's Classic Menu, a complete meal that includes a starter, entrée, personal side dish and dessert at a more reasonable (cheaper) price than the general menu. The portions are smaller, but that was ok - it was enough for us at that time of night. Overall, food quality, taste and preparation was very, very good, but not out of this world, exceptional. We'd go back again.

    Overpriced. Too big steaks, I.e not enough options for a reasonably sized portion. I am sure Canada produces enough good beef - only US beef served here. Had to return one 16 ounces ribeye because it was grossly overlooked. Got great service to get this fixed. Fortunately the steaks were very good.

    This experience was way below our expectations or what their reputation stands for. our appetizers came before our drinks?? The big issue is that one our our steaks was ordered medium and came out rare we sent it back. They took the same steak (not a new one) and a scorched it well done. When the waiter came back (not to check on the food), my wife quietly said that it was ineatable but did not want to make a fuss for our guests. Then the manager came over saying this was restaurant policy to come over. Then the waiter came over as well to make a bigger scene sayimg if he did not report it he would get in trouble. I guess what the customer wants does not matter. At the end they did not charge us for the steak. Big deal. What a waste of $$

    The filet is the best. Properly done to order and the quality and taste were excellent. The plate comes sizzling and VERY hot. I enjoyed my filet hot and tasty to the last bite. I think it would be nice to add a simple side with the entree, included in the price. We asked for three different bottles of wine from the wine menu, non was available. We chose another imported one randomly, was ok in the beginning, but with every sip it got worse. I recommend increasing the local wine selection.

    Thank you for taking such great care of us on Saturday night! The staff were amazing, particularly around dietary restrictions. They never made explaining the menu, or checking with the chefs, feel like a burden, which is a tremendous help for those of us who need accommodation when we dine out. The food was phenomenal, particularly the steak, and I would definitely recommend Ruth's Chris to friends and family (and already have!). I also wanted to say a special thank you for the "happy birthday" dessert that you prepared for me. Not only was it unexpected (and touching!), but you took care to bring berries with cream on the side, as the staff remembered that I have issues with dairy. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

    My wife and I recently went to Ruth Chris as we were spending the evening in the city. We were recommended Ruth Chris as a premium steakhouse. Having research a couple other notable named restaurants we decided to give it a try. The restaurant was beautiful, clean and welcoming. The staff was attentive and very knowledgable. I found the food to be bland with little flavor. I ordered the large tenderloin with blue cheese crust cooked medium. The steak was cooked correctly however very dry, the crust was flavorful again very dry. The lobster Mac and cheese was creamy with little flavor. Creamed spinach was decent. We found the meal to be very disappointing for what we paid. I have had much better meals at the keg.

    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 7/17/2014
    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.

    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!!
