bread was disappointing.. high end steakhouses usually have more interesting artisanal bread.

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.

Very attentive waiter. Food was beyond amazing. Noise level was good until a party of 5 came in for a birthday. Then it became a bit too much.

Food and service was wonderful! The only downside (albeit minor) was that they were a bit stingy on our post dinner liqueur. Otherwise, it was a fantastic exercise experience!

Valentine treat from my husband. Was GREAT! Lovely restaurant with friendly and professional service. And the food was excellent! Not sure why they don't serve Canadian beef though.. The only downside to an otherwise great experience.

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.

Service and ambiance were great but this type of butter loaded steak is not steak to me. Everything is engorged in fat. It overwhelms the taste of the meat.

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.

We had to have dinner in the bar because we did not have a reservation, so the ambiance was not as good. The food was good but our waiter, the bartender, was really busy, so no special treatment, although after a while he warmed up to us.
One nice surprise, we were celebrating my friends birthday. I had made the reservation for Sunday and we ended up going on Saturday, so I cancelled our Sunday reservation at the front desk.
Someone realized that we were celebrating a birthday and my friends desert had a candle on it. We really appreciated that.

I have to say for my first time going there, I don’t think I will return on a Saturday evening. It was a party of two and we arrived at 6:25pm for our reservations at 6:30pm. Our entrees were taking too long to come out. Around 7:45pm that is when our waiter Adam recognized my fiancé’s body language that he was frausted and mentioned that our meal wasn’t going to take much more time to come out. Our entrees didn’t come out until after 8pm. We watched parties of 4 and/or more come after us, eat and leave before us. My fiancé wanted to leave but he didn’t want to ruin my birthday. I shouldn’t have to spend 4 hours at a restaurant to have dinner. I’d like to have dinner and enjoy the rest of my night in town. I wish I spoke to a manager at the time but I didn’t want to make a scene and I was just in a rush to leave.

I've taken my wife to Ruth's Chris for every anniversary, Valentine's Day, and Birthday since we met. Although the Ruth's staff see thousands of diners every year, they go above and beyond to make us feel unbelievably special, each and every time. From ensuring that we are seated at our regular table to all of the personal touches...top notch to match the menu and food quality!

Value for this restaurant is tough to get around, service was poor, busboy spilled water on the table and didn't even acknowledge it. Food was good and drinks were tasty but slow to come. 3 managers(?)came around during the course of our entrees and asked the same thing "how are the first few bites". I appreciate the check in but just odd that all of them used the same lines and clearly hadnt communicated with each other. Tough to recommend this place anymore, used to be a classy place to bring clients.
