Ruth's Chris Steak House, Toronto is located in the heart of downtown Toronto. Located in the Hilton Hotel at Richmond and University street. 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.

The food is amazing but it is really the service that takes the experience to the next level. We were treated like family, given valuable tips of portion sizes so we didn't end up wasting food and spend more money. Everyone was compassionate, super considerate, helpful, attentive and just awesome.

Tip: please try the Shrimp Voodoo. It is the best shrimp appetizer. Ever.

I love Ruth Chris. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is that I had to send my steak back as it was almost well done and I asked for medium.

Other than that....the meal was great!

My servers was great however my food was not! I’ve been to Ruth Chris multiple times so I know what my lobster Mac and steak is suppose to taste like. Mac was not creamy is was runny with barely any lobster, my steak was suppose to be medium well how ever it was VERY WELL DONE. I only tipped my server well because it was my birthday and I didn’t want to complain.

I will start by saying the food was excellent!!! The way they went about resolving the situation of splashing scolding hot butter on my lap was not. Very painful for a few minutes but no burn marks. At the end of dinner, I joked that I could not have children anymore because of her mistake. She actually said, "that is for the best". I know she was trying to banter, but that was highly insulting and disrespectful. I asked for the $1,100 pre tip bill to be adjusted but the assistant manager, Ryan, refused and instead gave me a small gift card for my next visit and a free dessert. We all felt this was woefully inadequate for such a serious mishap for a longtime customer that is loyal to them for the past 20 plus years. Ruth's Chris should be ashamed of the way they conducted themselves. They turned a joyful Birthday celebration into a night I will not forget, for all the wrong reasons.

Ruth Chris has always been my favourite restaurant.

However, since they re-did the downtown location it has lost much if not all its atmosphere.

Feel as though we are eating in a banquet hall.

Food as usual is consistent and good and service is always excellent.

Cozy was nice, that is gone.

It was our first time to dine at this restaurant and it was for a birthday celebration. The server was helpful with the menu, food was served hot and timing of everything was great. The b-day celebrant was provided with a small birthday slice of cake (I had included this info with my online reservation). Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely return for the next celebration and recommend to friends and family.

It was our first time at this restaurant. We were celebrating our anniversary. The food was fantastic from start to finish — compliments to the chef and kitchen staff. The steak literally melted in your mouth and the veal ravioli was light and decadent! The service was better than we have had at other restaurants. Definitely a place we will visit again!

We were pretty excited to try out the steaks at Ruth’s Chris but as soon as we entered we didn’t like the place. The ambience was dull and it was dark. Our server was impolite and rolled her eyes when we asked her about the most famous steak there. The food was average.
I wouldn’t recommend going to Ruth’s Chris downtown Toronto.

Alot of flies were around around table and even went into my water. Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and I was embarrassed, the was expensive which I expected. I ended up order a salad and asked for chicken breast on top. The salad came with a big piece of stuffed chicken breast that was not cooked, if I wanted stuffed chicken I would've ordered it, I didn't touch even put it on another plate and was still charged for it. My boyfriend got lobster mac and cheese and loved it. The lack of care regarding the chicken was disappointing even after we both nicely voiced the issue. Anyways, we won't be back.

It was my first time here and I have to say I'm pretty disappointed. I chose Ruth's Chris because I've always been disappointed with The Keg. At this price point I expected the food to be better. But everything was just okay.
Not sure if the pendemic has anything to do with it but given that we ate at 5pm and there was only 3tablesthe one steak shouldn't be over cooked.
My steak was grainy and a bit dry. The service was great though!
