We serve the USDA prime steaks, to the freshest seafood and poultry, imaginative side dishes, unforgettable desserts and an award winning wine list. At Ruth's Chris, your steak is carefully selected from the finest USDA Prime beef available. It is aged to perfection and cut by hand at the restaurant. Then, your steak is broiled - to your exact order - at a searing 1800 degrees Fahrenheit to lock in the corn-fed flavour and natural juices. It's served hot and sizzling. In fact, you can actually hear your steak sizzling from across the room.

Service started out well. Server punched in the wrong appetizer and so we got one and the other person had to wait for the their appetizer to arrive thereby eating at different times. Ordered a bottle of wine and when it was opened the initial reaction was that it was off - instead of offering another bottle or selection the server said - let’s just pour more in the glass and let it breathe. Never followed up again to see if it was ok. Turned out to be ok but should have checked in. Finally when the bill came the server made a point of highlighting the value of the bill for the tip to be calculated from. They got a full tip but in hindsight, one appetizer should have been comped....

We had a wonderful first time experience. The staff were super friendly and the environment was quite pleasant. Our waiter was more than willing to answer any questions we had and explain in detail. I have a few crucial food allergies and he made sure to explain this to the chef to ensure my safety. We had the porterhouse steak for two, which to our surprise, was the most amazing steak we have ever had the pleasure of eating. It was cooked to perfection!! We have recommended this restaurant to many of our friends as we want them to share the same experience we did. Thank you Ruth's Chris!

Food was okay. We have been there before and the steaks were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Not so much this time. The steak did not taste or have the texture of a $75 New York Sirlion steak.

Our main pain point however was the service. Every table around us was catered to multiple times. With servers continuously coming by. Nobody came by our table to ask us how the food was once we were served or if we needed anything else. In addition, the runner (person bringing out the food) simply hastily dropped plates at our table without even uttering a word of what was being placed/served. There was also no spatial regard when placing the dishes. The fries and asparagus were actually partially stacked.

To add further insult to injury, I asked one of the servers to bring us a butter knife for the butter, to my amazement, his response was “you can use the steak knife.” The same server also sprinkled pepper all over the table and my shirt when asked to grind some over my steak. Once again he showed no regard and didn’t even acknowledge the fact that there was pepper all over the table. Lastly, when asked to top up my glass of water the same person dropped an ice cube on the table and walked away by simply saying “sorry.” I had to pick up the ice cube and wrap it in my napkin.

Furthermore, We went through our entire meal without anyone asking us if we wanted our drinks to be topped off.

Cherry on the top, was the tip. I tipped purely for the fact that we didn’t wait too long for our food and took into consideration the horrrible service I received. Once again to my amazement I heard the server say to hi colleague behind our backs “they’re so cheap they only tipped $X”... WOW!

Instead of asking if we were disappointed in anyway, the server has the audacity to make such derogatory comments.

I am not going to tip north of $30 for service that I wouldn’t even except from a hole in the wall restaurant let alone a fine dinning restaurant.

It was my son's birthday and the restaurant was very aesthetically pleasing. My children were already talking about the smell of the food! I was the only to order the chicken. My other family members had filet mignons, and lamb. We also had asparagus, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin and shoestring fries. The food was very good. We also had Riesling - I had a pomegranate martini - my new favourite martini!

The service was exceptional. Our main server was very thoughtful and engaging.

The surprise dessert for my son was a very nice touch! We had a wonder evening! Great restaurant!

We had a gracious experience. What a lovely treat in a rushed hurried city. White table cloths. Quiet dining. It is worth the expense for a very special occasion we were celebrating. The food, the service and the ambiance was worth every penny. We were not rushed. If you only go out once a year, you won't be disappointed here in the downtown Toronto location. The Niagara Falls location was very different. It was more of a modern, loud bustling ambiance. We had used it three years ago. The food then was also excellent. For us this time, the Toronto location was more suited to our need.

This is my third time at this location and it was as incredible as the last two times. We celebrated my mother's 60th birthday. The food is fantastic; it is incredibly difficult to choose meals on the menu because everything they serve is perfect. Our server was very attentive and included a complimentary cake for my mom. Everyone is kind and enthusiastic - even during your walk to the bathroom, you'll catch a smile from everyone on your way. The steaks are the best I've had anywhere; their unique sizzling plates and quality cut of meat are exquisite. Recommend, recommend, recommend!

They received us and were all very friendly. My husband and twin boys. The food was very good. We order our sides and they portioned our mains for us since we were planning on sharing. The kids liked their orders (tenders). We were all done and they came out w a delightful slice of cake with a candle with a happy birthday greeting. A special night was had. Thank you.

The meals are considered pricy, but the quality is definitely there for the steaks. You should try it at least once as the experience is quite different. It's a mature crowd, most of whom seem to have an enhanced taste for life.

The steak was great. Vegetables and fries were served warm at best. Took three asks to get vinegar. Hardly anyone in the restaurant so not due to lots of people.

I have been to RC many times but may not return. Given their prices the experience should be top notch

Manager was great
