Good food, but prices are high. Pretty simple fare for a 190.00 bill. Also very disappointed to see that a restaurant in Alberta serving beef from the USA.

My wife’s 50th birthday party and the lobster bisque is what she wanted. We were seated quickly, to a nice table with a view and sprinkled with birthday confetti (very thoughtful touch) Martinis were perfect, followed by crab stuffed mushrooms and the lobster bisque. Crab cakes and a cooked to perfection filet. We enjoyed a nice red wine with dinner and finished up with a shared creme brûlée. Excellent service, delicious food, validated parking. A perfect evening, felt welcomed and we will be back.

This was my first time eating at Ruth Chris' in Calgary. It did not disappoint! My favorite is the one in Las Vegas but it was nice to be in downtown Calgary as the Christmas decorations were still up. Also it's always a highlight to go to the top of the Calgary Tower!

The ambiance is beautiful at this restaurant and the hostess and pleasant as well as the service staff. Our waiter was a bit slow with our coffee and bill, but overall it was a friendly environment. Our steak was delicious, done to perfection but i found the side entrees to be heavily doused in butter. The desserts are divine especially the chocolate duo!

We were sat in the most far back room where fireplaces are on the TV's and not much other 'ambiance' to speak of and while the evening was lovely, once we walked to the bathrooms and around the restaurant and saw how beautiful the other areas were with either a huge fireplace or a view of the city.... it was disappointing to know we had drawn the card that sticks you in a back room... Other than that, everything was nice.

We have been coming to Ruth Chris since the day it opened and we have seen staff, managers and food change. We usually always come for New Years unless we are away on vacation. Our disappointment at the end of the night was that they removed the Chocolate Sin cake from the menu. The adding of new cuts of beef were a plus but the removal of some side dishes and the changing of desserts were the down fall. I know most places change their menu but signature dishes should always stay.

We come for the steak and it is always amazing. As it was New Years the service was okay. We had to send one of our side dishes back as it was cold. It came back a second time, not much warmer. We were disappointed that the Chocolate Sin cake was removed off the menu and replaced by a Chocolate duo (which was not as good). You should really bring that dessert back. Or go back to the original three chocolate layer mousse as that was a great signature dessert.
Overall we would still come back.

The ambiance of this place was incredible. We were seated in the fireplace room, which was an amazing setting. Our wait staff Eric and Aaron were fantastic, thorough, and a pleasure to deal with.

Food was delicious although there were issues with the cook of the steak and the potatoes. These were addressed promptly and a manager was notified, which is where things took a bit of a turn south.

My steak (ribeye) was ordered to a medium cook. While absolutely delicious after getting towards the middle of the steak it was closer to blue rare. When my steak was returned (within 5 minutes), it was back on its sizzling plate, still rare, and i was told by who I would assume was the manager in question, that the plate is 500 degrees and that I should have cut the steak and flipped it in the plate for it to continue to cook “it’s a Ruth’s Criss thing”. With the original steak being on the plate for 15+ minutes I would hate to have seen it on its initial arrival. Also being our first visit to the restaurant, if that is indeed “a thing”, some guidance from the wait staff? They were aware this was our first experience there. The AuGratin potatoes as well, delicious, but undercooked..

The waiters were fantastic, the atmosphere was divine, the feeling of being brushed off when something wasn’t quite right left a bad taste.

Perhaps the manager who came to the table could take some lessons from his wait staff on how to deal with people in a pleasant manner..

We were seated in a small event room that offered great ambiance. There was 6 or 7 tables for two that allowed for some pleasant banter amongst all. You knew the individual meals were good, because, well for me the banter became very secondary to the flavour of my meal. All the other guests must have felt the same, there was no interaction between fellow diners other than the tinkle of cutlery and murmurs of mmmmmmmm this tastes great.

Most restaurants would have their B-game staff on for Boxing Day, but not Ruth's. We were shown a high level of service from the greet to the meat. Our waiter was informative and helpful as to appropriate sides for our steaks. And such steaks! After going nearly mad from the intoxicating smells of plates passing behind us, our own tantalizing slabs landed sizzling before us. Every bite was a revelation of what a good steak should be.

Our server was not personable. They take your orders on ipad type devices which I assume will become the norm at most establishments soon, however he was too distracted by it to maintain basic conversation. He had too many other tables/commitments to clear our plates or tend to our needs, however seemed very bothered when the manager or other staff would clear our plates or do parts of his job, looking over at our table curiously. The biggest issue with the other staff clearing our plates is that they weren't asking us if we needed anything else at the time (which we did), and so we just were left unattended. Our server was MIA most of the time. So we missed ordering additional drinks and food which I guess is good given the atrocious prices for everyday items. We asked for Maldon's with our steaks however they did not know what that was nor did they have pepper mills. The manager explained to us that they were like "McDonalds", in that they had to adhere to the restaurant chain's rules which was the worst possible comparision being as how we weren't paying happy meal prices. Rather, we couldn't have left there for less than $100 plus per person and then plus tip due to their unreasonable prices and upcharges on every. last. item.. Lastly, what we went there for - the Beef, the Steak and it was pretty mediocre. Will not return.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal here the other night. The Prime Time menu is fantastic and the staff work hard to ensure you are out the door and on your way to the theater or wherever you have to be. Steaks are amazing - the Sweet Potato Pie is not to be missed. One suggestion however is having black napkins available for people with black pants on - my pants were covered in white fuzz after I left and I didn't have a lint roller so had to stay that way.
