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.

Food was great as expected and service was fine; room is too dark to read the menu or wine list...what decade was that all the rage?

Our server was very courteous and prompt. When one of our guests commented that their soup wasn’t warm enough it was quickly whisked away & returned at the perfect temperature. We were disappointed with the cheesecake we ordered & told the server. They didn’t charge us for that dessert. Overall we enjoyed our dining experience very much. We were all very happy with our meals. Thank you.

The staff, service and food are always above my expectation.

Malcom, our server was very attentive, professional and friendly. Actually from checking in to getting our coats checked to being seat and all thru the meal to the bill time - there was no complaints from my guest or myself.

Ruth's Chris is consistent in quality and service, thus I always recommend it to anyone asking for quality dining.

As a matter of fact, your gift cards are what most clients/friends receive for their Christmas present.

Keep it up.

Thank you.

There is really nothing that can justify the prices charged in this place. The steaks are just steaks, with a similar cut I have cooked it far better at home on the barbecue.

The location has not changed or improved in any noticeable way in 15 years. It’s just a tired bistro in a basement charging about $150 per person for an average meal. Enjoy!

Ruth Chris is our go to date night restaurant but we were very disappointed with the kitchen. I asked for medium and it came back twice rare in the middle. They enhanced our desert that was part of the set menu but considering the restaurant was practically empty when we arrived I don’t understand the lack of care given to our meal.

New Year’s Eve dinner, seated almost an hour late! Gave away our table to another couple. Manager said “sorry” but we still waited. He picked up our appetizers which was nice. Dinner was good, steak and lobster.

Was a fantastic evening.
The service from Glenn as well as the extremely helpful food runner Badon was second to none.
Steaks and sides are top notch and we’re cooked perfectly.

Ruth’s Chris is waaaay too expensive for what it is. Also in Canada use Canadian beef for crying out loud. We have some of the best corn fed beef in the world and we have barley fed if you wantbthat

One of the best hosted steak houses in the city of Toronto. You can't buy enthusiasm and this place has it flowing all through their entire staff. Plus the food is brilliant with so many selections and add-ons its perfect for those who like different.

The one thing I did not like was that there was a female guest in the restaurant that was totally exposing her breasts at the table. It was not by accident it was how she was dressed and I did not appreciate seeing that when I am trying to have a nice meal with my husband and daughter and her boyfriend. It was not tasteful at all and I would have expected the Manager to go over to the table and tell the female to cover up or leave. We were in a high end restaurant not a strip club. Sorry for this feedback but other than seeing the female at her table taking pictures of herself being fully exposed I loved the restaurant the food was amazing.

I was a bit disapointed when i got my food since i heard so much great stuff about ruth chris. My steak was luke warm in the middle to the point where it was almost cold. I order a side of asparagus and it was old and tough. I couldnt even chew thru it since it was so tough. When i told the waiter all he said was oh im sorry but its like that sometimes. I personally will not go back to ruth chris because at that price point. I think i deserve better food..i rather just pay a bit more and go to michael's

The meat was excellent. Their House Salad consisted of organic greens, a few strands of red onion, one tiny cherry tomato and one half a regular sized cherry tomato. Nothing else. The shrimp were dry and over cooked. Here is a place charging $60 as a minimum for a steak... The Keg Mansion at half the price has a massively better venue, similar steaks (although Ruth's steak was an excellent cut) but far better salads and side dishes.

We went there for my boyfriend's birthday. Originally we were planning to celebrate it at the airport location but after reading all the negative reviews about the other site, we decided to go to the downtown location. We made the reservation for 7:30 pm on a Wednesday night - it's not too busy but there are groups having dinner including a company event.

Services was great. The servers were being really patience and answering all our question. My boyfriend has issue with the lighting in the restaurant, it's pretty dark which makes it difficult to read the menu. The server does offer us flashlight however, but it was little odd.

Steak was great - as expected. Side dishes were ok - we ordered the garlic mash and grilled asparagus w/ Hollandaise sauce - given the Asparagus not in season, we can't complain much. However, certainly not the cheapest sides - especially with the portions, the side dishes themselves costed over $ 35.00.

We got a complimentary flourless chocoalte cake for my bf thought - and it was almost the highlight of the night because it's really delicious.

Overall, I like our experience and would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.
