Lovely evening and treat. Service was amazing and although people say not kid friendly, our 11 and 9 year old loved it. Definitely a place for special occasion. Thank you Merdanhe(?) and staff!

You have to try this place! Excellent service, paired with some of the best food you could ask for. It isn’t easy to find a nice quiet restaurant anymore for a nice night out, but now I know where I’m going. I’ll definitely be going back for more of those delicious steaks.

Fantastic food, great service. My filet was cooked perfectly, delicious!! Overall, a fantastic meal. My wife and I will be back for sure!! My only complain would be the price for the basic sides and the common/domestic drinks. I understand the place is fancy, but the basics should be a little more reasonably priced.

Great place - but PRICEY!!!!!!!!
I really could not recommend this place without warning the person you are looking at a minimum of $100.00 per person. I think there are places in town that are as good or even better with more realistic prices. Not for the average person.

This is the second time we have gone to RuthsChris Calgary. The first time was a year ago for my Birthday and last Saturday evening for my Husband’s and my Anniversary. We were treated like Royalty in both visits. I totally recommend this establishment for every day dining and especially for special occasions.

Our most recent visit (have been once before) was for my girlfriends birthday. We went for the Wednesday night date night and had a great time. Our server Daniel was awesome and very attentive. He provided amazing service and had just the right amount of humour. The food both times was amazing. The first time we had the stuffed mushrooms so we opted for the calamari to change things up a bit and it was excellent. The steak which we had both times was cooked perfectly and was incredibly tender and juicy. We had the chocolate duo which was also very good. Will definitely be back for date night.

Good food, service was interesting, some new waiters a little over the top interrupting conversations continuously, asking to take away the horseradish just after someone else just dropped it off, topping off my sparkling water with regular water...
Service could have been more professional. The food was excellent.

We had never been to this location. From some reviews I was a little concerned about whether the food and service would be up to par for Ruth's Chris. It was great! The staff went out of their way to help us celebrate our anniversary.

The service was fantastic and the food arrived as it should and in a timely manner. We ordered from the "date night" menu. We especially enjoyed the steak (of course) the salmon filet, and the vegetables (the creamed spinach was yummy). Stuffed mushrooms appetizer was okay - we've had better.

Desserts were amazing.

I would highly recommend the Calgary location for a special night out.

Exceptional food and service. Rib eye tender and juicy. Service great. We were celebrating a special birthday.. I made a mistake and made our reservations for a day later. Even though they were very busy, they found us a table, and treated us royally. Surf and turf was really good. Desert was great, too. Highly recommend their steaks.

First and foremost, the food was amazing. I would say the bottle of wine was the most healthy thing we ate - and that's not a complaint. I think there was butter in or on everything and that only makes things more delicious. Not healthy but that's not why we were there.

The service was just right. Helpful, friendly, excellent service without being interrupting.

It's pricey but for the occasional nice evening, really nice!

The steak was fantastic! Side dishes were quite large but a little underseasoned. $19 for a glass of everyday wine was ridiculous!
Overall I felt the prices were way too high for the amount and quality of food. Even with the special deals that the restaurant is trying to promote, it's still not enough savings to bring me back through the door. Too bad as the steak is definitely one of the best I've ever had but I will not be back because of the prices

I was stunned - it was that excellent of an experience. I avoided Ruth's Chris for years due to it being a chain steak restaurant. This time, I was persuaded into going and I'm extremely glad I did.

Hani was our server. Stellar gentleman who knew how to take jibes and give them, while maintaining professionalism - which is absolutely impressive.

The food - Lobster bisque, filet mignon, prawns, chicken breast, and a side of scallops. Dessert - Banana cream pie and bread pudding. I ate it all and I'm eager to go back for more.

Seriously - eat here. One of my new favorites.

Appreciated the special touches made by the restaurant to celebrate my husbands birthday. Seemed to sit everyone in one area (it was 5) which made it feel more like a casual family restaurant versus a high end romantic location. Not sure about the updates to the menu including the change from cheesy garlic toast to start or the holladaise sauce on the oyster Rockefeller. Meal was good and desert was delicious!

Was on holidays and so being in Alberta, wanted to try a good steak house. The service and the ambience was great and had attentive service from Cameron, our server who explained to us how the steaks were prepared and recommended to us what were some good choices. The steaks were tender and perfectly cooked and the appetizer lemon ginger chicken and chopped salads was a great start to our meal! Will come back again for sure!!

We enjoyed the date night special on our 31st anniversary recently. Service and food was as expected, which would be good or very good from a review perspective. Bartender was unfamiliar with a cocktail we order so she took the time to come over and ask what was in it. Only point that brought my rating down to 3 stars was the speed of service. The service was perhaps a bit too efficient as I found the pace of the meal a bit on the rushed side. They also validate parking, if you park in the parkade attached to the Calgary Tower, which is nice touch particularly after an expensive meal.

I found the Caesar salad to be on the room temperature side and slightly wilted, would have preferred it cold and crisp. The seasoning on the steak was more salty than what I am used to, plus it was more rare than medium rare. The Thai chicken appetizer was absolutely delicious.

Food was excellent
Side dishes family-style sharing is a great idea. The creamed spinach and potatoes Lyonaise were a great hit.
our only complaint was that the desert serving were too large!! Imagine that!!! One serving could easily have sufficed for two or even three persons. If this is all I have to complain about, Kudo's to Ruth's Chris.
