    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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

    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 ;-)
