We had Easter dinner here, which was lovely, until the maitre d' seats a couple beside us 2 minutes after our entrees arrived. The female in that party was wearing an abundance of very strong perfume, which sent my daughter into a severe allergic response. Upon advising our waiter Hani, he immediately sent us up into a booth in an area that was not open for service, and had our plates and drinks all moved up to our new table in the blink of an eye. Once my daughter's medication kicked in enough that she could eat, we were able to enjoy our meal. Hani and the manager both advised that they have marked our file, so that, in the future, they will place us away from other tables to protect my daughter. Very impressed at how quickly, efficiently and professionally they handled the whole episode.

We had an amazing birthday celebration dinner for my mother-in-law. We had 10 in our party and were seated in a private room. It was perfect. Our server was excellent and our meals were all superb. I know we’ll be back and I would highly recommend Ruth’s Chris to friends and family.

The food was good but expensive. Our server was attentive and friendly. The restaurant could use a refresh on the interior but having lots of windows was nice. One thing that took a bit away from our experience was being next to a family who allowed their young kids run around the restaurant between our table and theirs. Of course this was not the fault of the restaurant at all.

Every aspect of our experience was excellent but our waiter was a bit too “touchy feely with his hands which made my wife and daughter uncomfortable. Excellent opportunity for a “teaching moment “ about invading one’s personal space. We will continue to visit your restaurant as it is a top notch experience Thanks

We never have been to Ruth Chris in Calgary,have been a couple times in Edmonton,so we kinda new what to expect.
It was nice to try a new location.Service was good ,we knew what we wanted from our previous visits in Edmonton,so everything was pretty straight forward.
Steak was done beautiful,had the side sweet potato,it was delicious.
Our dessert was banna cream pie,which we order every time ,I would have to say this was the worst one we have every had,we did not finish.This pie had way to many bananas that were passed ripe and were not cut ,I except better.
The salted Carmel cheese cake was amazing.

Absolutely best steakhouse and service in Calgary, second time I have been there and if you want a quality steak with impeccable service I highly recommend Ruth’s. I have been to all of the high end places in town and hands down this is the place I’ll be coming back to time and time again. My girlfriend said she doesn’t know if she can eat another steak again after having the filet here. It just melts...no other words to describe it. I’ll be back soon.

There is an abundance of fantastic steak houses all within walking distance of Ruth's Chris. The food, including the steak, sweet potato casserole, vegetables were all top notch. Our service was slow and the prices are on the high end of what you would expect.

Sometimes the restaurant gods speak and we should listen. The first clue was an incorrect wine was brought. Then the warm bread wasn’t. The lobster bisque we ordered was tepid and had to be sent back for warmingThe crab cakes 2 were well cooked the 3rd was cooked outside uncooked in centre. The creamed spinach was all cream .Then a hefty bill was presented for thoroughly mediocre food We expected better. Maybe it’s our own fault for having complained only once and being too Canadian and avoiding confrontation,but this seems like a victim apology

We had a wonderful evening complete with a birthday celebration. Terry served us and was so fluid we didn’t know he was there until we needed him, which he seemed to know before we did! The meal was succulent — we over did the sides as we didn’t understand how shareable they were. All in all we were thrilled with the experience.

Appreciated the recognition of our anniversary with the special touches of table confetti, lovely card and complimentary dessert. Thank you also to our server for taking a quality photo of us!
Received a bread basket of very ordinary rolls room temperature with herb butter. I would prefer just butter as I am not a fan of rosemary.
We had the wine list for quite a long time before our server took our order. The $80 bottle that we selected wasn't available and a different one was brought to our table without mentioning the exchange of one 2 years less aged. We noticed and pointed it out. Searched for the correct one but not available. We were still charged the same for the different year. It should be taken off the menu.
Rib entree could have been a bit more flavourful. I didn't care for the pool of burnt butter that it was sitting in. Our caesar salad and shrimp cocktail were very good but not exceptional. Sides of creamed spinach and baked potato were okay.
The barbecued shrimp entree on garlic mash was very nice and plentiful..
To die for is the banana cream pie!
Overall an enjoyable evening as this is casual elegance.
We would have liked a bit more privacy for conversation. Seating was right next to another table that was tiered above us. Table for 2 a bit small.

Food and service is incredible. It’s expensive but you don’t leave hungry. To all those that say you can get a steak at the keg just as good for half the price.... nope. I love the Keg. It’s is really good. Ruth’s is world class. There is a difference.

We were seated in the bar area and our server was very distracted , not even looking at us while we were trying to order. Therefore some things got messed up. We had to flag him down on occasion in order to order more drinks. Made for a frustrating night, overall the food was good but a little over priced. Won’t be returning anytime soon.

I have been a longtime fan of Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, bringing clients and families for year. My last visit though was very disappointing.

I took my girlfriend for a Valentine's Day dinner and the experience was awful, from the food to the service.

Our dinner was $350. We expected to pay for a high-end dinner. Just thought it would have been worth it.

Disappointed.

I usually try to avoid chain restaurants, but coming from Texas, I’m a bit spoiled when it comes to good steaks. It’s hard to find a restaurant in Canada (aside from the Nash) that makes a decent steak. I love my Canucks, but go to Texas and eat at a place like Pappas Steakhouse, B&B Butchers or The Taste of Texas abs you’ll understand. Ruth’s steaks are pretty consistent in the way it’s prepared, seasoned and excellent service.
