We had a lovely experience at Ruth Chris. The service was perfect, timely and our meals were outstanding. The waitress was great, especially when asked to make recommendations and her personal favorites. Thank you!

The service was wonderful, our waitress was amazing, all staff, from front desk to management were fabulous. The restaurant seems outdated and dark. The meal, the steak was excellent, the sides were average, mashed potatoes were runny, broccolini was flat and the total presentation is outdated and not appealing. The salads, apple and squash was very good, the Caesar needed bacon and croutons. The appetizer, calamari was chewy and needed a dip. Overall if I’m going to spend 250.00 on a meal, I would like a better presentation and a more modern atmosphere .

I was very surprised with how delicious the meal was. Everything was great. I had gift cards from a few years ago, and luckily you guys accepted them.
Our server intimidated us a little, but was friendly.

Thank you!

Double date night only happens once in a while and this was one to remember! Lights were dimmed and people enjoying themselves in every direction. Food was superb, wine was delicious and service was wonderful and attentive. We were all sad it was over and one of our friends was even considering ordering a second time within the sitting. There was nothing to complain about but maybe that we cant afford this on a regular basis.
Thank you for a wonderful evening Ruths Chris we will be back

We had made a reservation and when we arrived we were seated immediately. Cold Ice Water was poured right away. Our drink order was taken and the drinks were delivered fast as well.
They put nice warm bread on our table along with some whipped butter.
We thought the Menu was great- lots to choose from. We ended up ordering from the Winterlicious Menu. We started with the soup and it was amazing!! The Steak was cooked perfectly to our liking - we had ordered the mashed potatoes and mushrooms to go with our meal and they were both very good as well. The desert was absolutely delicious and the Cappuccinos were nice and hot as well. Our server Kimberly was very nice - attentive and liked to chat. Between courses - our table was cleared in a very timely fashion as well. And the person doing that was also nice to chat with. The restaurant was busy and we didn't really see any empty tables - but even though all the staff were very friendly and courteous. We were not rushed out of the restaurant at all and even at the end of our Cappuccinos were we even offered more water. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would be going there again for sure!

My husband and I came to the restaurant for the Winterlicious Event.
Our waiter was fabulous, very knowledgeable, not hovering around us. All I can say is Wow!!
Unlimited bread, caesar salad to die for, stuffed chicken, yummy.
The dessert was the best I have ever had. Will definitely return.

Being a steak lover, Ruth’s was always on my radar, but somehow the visit to the place was always getting procrastinated. And then finally we decided that we have to give it a go, and here we were on a Friday night at Ruth’s expecting something that would satiate the Steak lover in me.
It was their Winterlicious Menu with a Salad, a 6oz Fillet & a Chocolate Sin Cake.
At the end of the meal, I was disappointed.

And let me explain why.

To start off with the salad, which was pretty basic. Nothing exceptional, however my wife had chosen to go with the Feature Soup of the day which was a Butternut Squash Soup and if I quote her exact words “the soup’s outstanding”. I will take her word for that.

Now the most anticipated item - the 6oz Fillet. I always prefer my Steaks Medium Rare and that’s what I ordered. And when delivered on a sizzling plate and I cut the first slice, I realized it is ...

My wife was done with her “quite good” Salmon fillet whereas I just reached the half of the Medium sized Fillet when she asked me, “ Why’re you so slow?”
Pat comes my reply, “I simply don’t want this to end so soon”

... a perfect definition of Medium Rare.
“Medium” because of the the quantity and “Rare” because of the quality.

And lastly the dessert - Chocolate Sin Cake. Indeed a sin considering the calories, but it’s that kind of a sin which you won’t regret committing eventually.

So, you realize I was disappointed. Disappointed at myself for procrastinating my visit to Ruth’s for a long long time. And now that I have tasted them, will ensure the next visit doesn’t take so long.

We had a mediocre night, as the steaks in our table weren’t cooked properly. Service was abysmal. To summarize , Don’t bother going to this restaurant. For a similar price, Hy’s is much more enjoyable , and just around the block , with better service and better food

Great steak, crab cakes, and onion rings! I wasn't a fan of the butter though, would go with a dry plate next time. Service was top notch, our server was nice, knowledgeable, and professional. Ambiance seems a bit dated but perhaps it speaks to their clientele.

We gathered at Ruth’s Chris to celebrate a family birthday and they went out of their way to make every detail very special. The filet was done perfectly - melted in my mouth it was so tender. The food was fantastic!

The service was exceptional. Our waitress was very attentive ensuring we were well taken care of. We had a wonderful celebration at Ruth’s Chris. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for the best steak in Toronto. We will definitely be back.

We went to test drive restaurant during winterlisious....overall we had a very good meal but we had two observations one we felt our waiter came across with an additude that we couldn’t really afford to eat there. And two we felt the presentation of the food left a lot to be desired.

The food came out far off from the desired doneness which is even more upsetting since they are a steakhouse. They ended up bringing out an additional hot plate in order to partially cook the steak some more. The mashed potatoes we got were good however the brocollini was room temperature and lacked flavour
