We had never visited Ruth's Chris Steakhouse before. The service, meal and ambiance was outstanding. We had the classic 3 course dinner for $59.99, the best value for the money. We were very impressed with the speed of service, however not too fast that we were rushing through our meal. The food was excellent, steak cooked perfectly medium and not too pink inside. Three cheese stacked potatoes were delicious as was the strawberry shortcake dessert. Our starters were the steakhouse salad large plate sized, and chicken barley soup in a bowl, not a cup. Great starters, and oh yeah the sourdough bread...so good!

This visit featured a ribeye that failed to be as tender as other times I have ordered that dish. Was disappointed in the price paid for an average steak.

The classic North American steak house with fantastic meat, hence excellent steaks. The service was very helpful and the ambience is very pleasant. The creamed spinach was catastrophic as they tried a new recipe.

This might be the best Ruth’s Chris that I’ve been to. The service is so professional and timely, the food is always perfect, and the location and decor are excellent. We are never disappointed by this branch of this restaurant!

It was extremely loud. It took close to 45 minutes to receive our food. However, management provided a free upgrade on our dessert due to the inconvenience. Ruth Chris normally has a dress code but there were women walking around with their butt cheeks hanging out. I was aware of the caribana events, however, it was extremely loud during our dinner.

Would definitely recommend for a good steak dinner. Went with my husband celebrating our anniversary and we love Ruth’s Chris! The food is delicious and the ambiance is lovely. A beautiful location. They also gave us a lovely dessert and painted with chocolate happy anniversary which really goes a long way and is a nice perk.

I had the lamb chops and there were three of the most succulent and tasty chops I've ever had. They were perfectly medium rare and the sides of mashed potatoes and mushrooms that accompanied it were ideal.
Wonderfully ambient atmosphere and great service. Would come back every time without question.

Food was excellent. Service was ok. Our server was a bit brass with a matter of fact attitude. Very cold. It wasn’t until our bill came that she informed our group there was an automatic 18% gratitude added to our bill for our group of 9. Should you not tell people up front or when you called to confirm the reservation?

First time, was really disappointed with food quality. Ordered medium rare porterhouse. It came very rare. I understand the bone makes it difficult but it could have been done better. The rest of the food was just ok, nothing special. For a $900 dinner between 3 people it just wasn’t worth it from any angle.

We've been coming to Ruth's Chris for years and this visit was probably the best we've experienced yet. Food and service was fantastic. You can't beat the Cowboy cut of steak for flavour and tenderness. Expensive but no where else comes close to the quality!!

Ruth's Chris always does it best. We have eaten in their restaurants from New York to Hong Kong and many other locations. We have never been disappointed. Some might say it is expensive but you get what you pay for from the service to the excellent steaks. We have tried many other steak houses over the years but none have come up the standards of Ruth's Chris

Ate here for a birthday. Food tasted great and service was amazing. Expensive restaurant. Business casual attire required. However, quite dark with soft music.

We expected more.

Let's start with the good. The steaks were tender, no doubt an ode to the prime cuts they use. And the chocolate lava cake was quite delicious.

Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The steaks were bland. There was a good sear, yes, but it was bland, as if they were only seasoned with salt and pepper. No rosemary, no thyme, no onions... not even garlic.

My steak in particular was also undercooked. I ordered med rare filet, the edge was cooked, but the center was rare -- I'm talking bright red.

And they get super excited about the sizzling butter, but to be honest, it doesn't add that much flavor by itself. See previous comment about garlic and herbs. And the butter was so hot that the waiter told me to hold my napkin up to keep the splatter from getting on my shirt. Really? And I could smell that the butter was burnt. Not just mine, but everyone else in the restaurant. I could see and smell smoke clouding the restaurant from the moment I first was escorted in.

And then my wife's dessert. She has a dairy and chocolate allergy, so she was excited to learn they had a raspberry sorbet. Because of this, she ordered the 3 course special, which comes with a dessert. Only after the first two courses, did the server inform us that the raspberry sorbet had melted in the freezer! So what did they bring her instead? Berries. Not berries with powdered sugar, not berries with soy whipped cream, not berries with that delicious raspberry sauce used on the lava cakes. No. Just. Berries. The same kind we get at the supermarket.

We expected more.

I have been to Ruth Chris numerous times and this is the first time I have encountered a problem. We received our appetizers and drinks in a timely fashion but the main courses were severely delayed. What I didn't like was the LAME explanation that our order just so happened to be put in at a time when many orders were submitted. People came in 15 minutes to 30 minutes or so after us and received their meals and were done eating before we received our main courses. I hate being lied to as I am not a patsy and they should have just told us the truth that they completely screwed up. The manager offered to comp desserts and coffee. I felt he should have comped at least a main course or more! The food is delicious and these higher end prices they should act like a high end restaurant and not cheap out.

Best steak house in Toronto. The steak came exactly the way it was ordered, the service was super friendly and fast. The wine list is pretty long and has some affordable wines.

When we arrived we were greeted by a very lovely young lady who was very gracious and inviting. Glenn was outstanding, very knowledgeable, and he ensured our food was as expected and we had everything we wanted. Glenn's young assistant also added to our satisfaction with his attention and care. It was an excellent Ruth,s Chris experience.

Food is always excellent - the best Crab Cakes I have had in any city I've been to in Ontario. We always order the Tomahawk to share (4 adults) with side dishes, and end up fully satisfied. The service is par excellence - staff are all courteous and knowledgeable. The Toronto and Niagara Falls locations are our favorites for special occasions, and the quality of the food and service are very consistent. I just love this place!
