 (Toronto)·Dined a day ago

Natalie our hostess was lovely; we arrived early for our reservation but we were seated within five minutes. The food as always was delicious. Arrived in a timely manner and Served at perfect temperature. Everything tasted amazing as we would expect from Ruth’s Chris.

Our waiter Scott did not provide the usual level of service we are used to at Ruth’s Chris, nor any steakhouse for that matter. He was not rude, but overall quite curt, not really friendly...just overall below the level of service we would expect from Ruth’s Chris. We frequented the Mississauga and downtown locations before, and were always greeted and served with overwhelming quality of service. Scott just did not provide that. To top it all off, our busser would clear our plates before all our guests were finished eating! And while one of our guests was finishing his plate, the busser would hover over him until he barely put his fork down.

I would have commented with the dining room manager had they even visited our table (as is the usual tendency we have experienced). We were there for a birthday, so I did not want to further ruin the evening by asking for a manager and instead will leave disappointing reviews for this new location. Left the restaurant with a poor taste in our mouths.

Great Place. Staff are new but good. Not the old school ambiance you would expect but I actually like the update in steakhouse style. Steak is, of course, what you would expect from Ruth's - awesome

After dining at both the downtown and former square one location, I was a little disappointed in our overall experience at the new Airport location. We were served someone else's bread with 2 left over pieces and used butter for starters. We were seated at a table near the bar which wasn't ideal for a date night. My steak was more medium well than medium rare. Our sides tasted amazing and my husband really enjoyed his ribeye. I have dined at Ruth's Chris over 20 times in the past 10 years and I can honestly say this visit was the most disappointing. I am not impressed with the location move from Square one to the Airport. It might be worth it to travel downtown next time I want to go to Ruth's Chris.

Came with my parents and boyfriend who are all meat eaters, and were excited to share the Tomohawk. I’m vegan. Not only did they make me a vegan plate that was delicious, and satisfying, they applauded me on coming out to a steakhouse which was nice compared to the normal looks of “why the heck would a vegan come to a steakhouse”... to be with my family, that’s why!
Staff was so attentive and friendly. They were welcoming and informative.
My family decided to switch from being a Keg family to being a Ruth’s Chris family after our experience on Saturday night.

Great steaks and sides. Desserts were tasty too! Host staff very friendly and the waiter was great too. Had a small issue with the busboy but was nicely handled and a visit by the manager left us happy and well looked after. Overall a great experience in their new location.

The meal was exceptional, however the service was lacking. Our waitress took our order, and brought out different sides than ordered. We were told it was only open a couple of months, so working out some kinks.

Steaks tasted very good but unfortunately one of our steaks arrived at the table rare when medium was asked for. It was taken back to the kitchen but the wait was inconvenient. We were offered a free side. The side orders were average tasting, nothing special and given the extra price on top of the price of the steaks this is something that should be addressed. I think a steak entree order should be accompanied by at least 2 sides as part of the entree pricing.
Our server was attentive and quick to rectify the error in steak doneness. However, the steak should not have come to our table in the first place unless it was done correctly.

Our first time to this new location.Celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary comfortably seated and table was nicely decorated with hearts. Waiter was timely,efficient and friendly at all times. The food as usual was excellent and it was a pleasure to meet the manager Jesse who came around to make sure we were well taken care of and that we were happy with the meal and service. He also took some photos of my hubby and I around the restaurant and offered us a complimentary drink at the bar. That was very nice but we had to get back home to our kids.
Great ambiance and very exquisite meal. Will definitely come again....

The food was very meadiocre. Steak was not cooking consistently throughout, asked for medium rare and half was medium well and the other half was rare. Had to add a lot of salt to the sides because they were bland. Server was definitely new, very scarce our whole evening. We were charged for a wine that I did not drink. I felt very ripped off, way over priced for something I could get across the street at the keg. Much nicer inside, and way better food. Will not be visiting this location again.

First time for us at the new location. Driving from Guelph is about the same distance and time as it was to the old location. Easy to find off the highway as you basically drive straight into the parking lot off the Dixon rd exit from 427 N. There appears to be adequate and easy parking. Many of the staff moved to the new place so the same high level of service remains. The food is every bit as great as it has always been at Ruth’s Chris. We liked the ambiance. It’s very modern but it is still definitely a Ruth’s Chris. We liked it better than the Mississauga location. If you are traveling and staying overnight at an area hotel, it’s a great and convenient choice!

It’s very comfortable and easy to have 3 to 4 hour business meeting The airport strip is hustling with local business like Molsoncoors Head . The neighborhood lacks an upscale steak house. Ambience is great once you are inside.

The old Square One location had much better service and appetizers. Very slow service here. Steaks were perfect, but the calamari was extra salty, and the shrimp voodoo was dry.

Never had a single bad thing to say about the food and service at the old location after years of going there.

This new location looked much nicer, but was cheapened by using patio chairs for the dining experience. Patio chairs at the dining table!

Had dinner at the new location by Toronto International airport. The atmosphere is elegant and quiet - perfect for having conversation. We were seated by the kitchen entrance so there was some waiter traffic going by the table regularly. The main dining room is free of this distraction.
There were 4 adults and 1 child in our party. We all had the tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection. All side dishes were tasty and complimented the meat dishes nicely. Services was excellent, - both our waiters were prompt and courteous.

The service is terrible. From the moment we walked in to check with the hostess, then waiting for our reserved table,then waiting at the bar for us to have our order taken. Our waiter st the table was good, but the time it took from our appetizers to entree was ridiculous. The food and desserts were fantastic, except for the salad. You would expect a much fresher and pleasant looking Caesar salad.

Overall worst Ruth’s Chris we have ever been to and we have been to many different ones. They definitely need to improve on their service.

Good steak, limited wine list, expensive. Everything was great until I went to get my car out of the parking lot. I could not get out of the gate, had to park the car again, go into the hotel to find the machine to pay for parking, pay $25. For a bottle of wine, bottle of sparkling water, 2 steaks, I mashed potato to share, and 2 coffee's plus tip $400. To much, sorry

They say good things must always come to an end. It’s a very sad day when I’m no longer able to express my feelings of love for Ruth’s Chris. My recent visit will be my last. It’s not me Ruth, it’s you.


A word of advice, if you’re considering Ruth’s Chris, the only option should be the downtown location. We’ve been burned may times with the other GTA locations and tonight was another example of that.

This location itself lacks the ambiance and atmosphere you get with the traditional Steak house feel you get from the downtown location. It’s very nice and modern but it’s far from a Ruth’s Chris.

Our waiter was very nice but again lacked the years of experience that would accompany staff from their Toronto location.

Although this may seem trivial, the “free bread” at the beginning of the meal was disappointing. I know I sound like a broken record but doesn’t compare to the “other” location I’ll keep referencing.

We started off with a calamari appetizer that was so sweet, it reminded me of a Chinese take out dish. It’s a definite pass.

Now, I know I’m not exaggerating when I say this. When you go to a steak restaurant that charges close to $100 per steak, you expect it to be absolutely perfect. Unfortunately tonight BOTH of our steaks were extremely under done. The lack of follow through on the restaurant side was also extremely poor. Choosing to re-heat our steaks vs making new ones was a poor decision. When the “new” steaks came back, they lacked that “$100 steak feel”’. Felt as though I was eating leftovers the very next day. We did speak to a manager that seemed way too inexperienced to be working at a fine establishment like RC. We were offered another appetizer (pass) and some sparkling wine. We’re both non drinkers but whatever, thanks for the “nice gesture”.

Getting the bill was a huge kick in the nuts. All items ordered were there as if we had the ideal experience.

My dear Ruth, I think it’s time we see other people...

The price fix menu on the last page is a great deal. The steak was the best we’ve ever tasted - and we travel the world trying dishes from every continent. I highly recommend the Petit Filet with shrimp, the creamed spinach and the lobster fried rice. Dessert was fair - but who needs dessert when the salad, main and side dishes were plentiful.

After waiting (seated) for more than 30 minutes, I finally had to go in search of a server to get a drink/wine list. Ordered my steak medium-rare...was medium-WELL. The steaks for two of my guests was also cooked incorrectly. Total was $700 for 4 of us for dinner with business clients. They were the most friendly when they handed me the Visa machine. I have been to the Ruth's by Square One many times...but won't go back to this one. The Keg is a much better value.
