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.

I don’t think Ruths’ Chris is what it used to be. I actually prefer the Keg. Their steaks are better. It’s not a top end steak house.

I would recommend the DOWNTOWN Ruth's Chris in a second! We tried the one in Markham - not impressed and then management ignored me when they didn't like my letter to them!

We even have a favourite server downtown - Britta! Best service! The steak and sides were amazing as usual! And a very nice touch, a Happy Birthday to my wife with her favourite dessert.

I always recommend Ruth's Chris downtown - best steaks!

The steaks are amazing! The service is also really good. The place is expensive so save it for special occasions (unless you are loaded, then go often).

Decent steak, however for my own taste, a little too buttery and rich in its preparation. Decor is a little dated, but still very pleasant.

Overall a nice evening. For the price, there should be more attentive service. Our waitress was excellent but very busy. She should have had a manager or bus person helping with her tables. Also, it was a little pricey. Other steakhouses in the same price range have much more attentive staff coming around more often.

Waiter could have put A LITTLE Bit of smile on his face. Customers want to feel welcomed and comfortable in a decent restaurant after paying a decent price. A cold politeness doesn’t do the job in a highend restaurant such as this one sometimes.

Excellence from the beginning! When we were seated(no wait time as we had a reservation), manager came and spoke with us. Our waitress, Selena was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Her recommendations were considered and some of our party ordered and were very pleased. The food was tasty and brought out in a timely fashion even though the restaurant was at full capacity during our dining time. We keep coming to this Toronto location (even though we are closer to another newer location) because the whole dining experience is high quality and top notch!

Steak was amazing! Service outstanding! Selena was great to us. Definitely pricey but well worth it, except my asparagus eas burnt like black burnt and at $15 bucks for asparagus I dont think it shouldve even come to the table. Overall very happy with the experience.

I like the vibe of the restaurant. But the service and the food is just ok. The server didn’t take away the plates and forks in time. I ordered lamb chops, it’s a kind of salty. If not salty it would taste very good. The stuffed mushrooms taste good. Also I like the mojito here. Still recommend.

As usual, our meal was exceptional. I don't eat tons of steak but when it arrives, sizzling in butter, it is irresistible and I can't imagine a better steak experience. I think it important to know you can share the appetizers and the main course items...the friendly staff are very open to it (even advising on the large portion sizes). We've been Ruth's customers for years and although the prices are high, ultimately, you leave knowing you've fully enjoyed your meal.

The waitress warned us that the meal would arrive on scalding hot plates and to be careful. It turned out that the plate was hot but not the steak: it was warm. Leads me to believe that the hot plate thing is merely a gimmick to make you believe it’s just come off the stove.

The 8 oz. $66 dollar steak was good but overpriced.

Food was good overall. We were there for winterlicious but seemed forgot about. Somehow it toke 30 plus mins to get our salads. In terms of service, no one asked how things were. It was busy but seemed since we were a table of two that we did not get much attention from the sever and he only brought the wine and salads. Rest was served by others. Steak was yum. Overall its a nice plan but wished for better service

My two sons and I enjoyed the Winterlicious dinner very much. It is our first Winterlicious meal ever and our first visit to any Ruth Chris restaurant. The atmosphere is very cozy and warm. The server was very friendly and all service was very professional except sometimes it feels like too much server traffic was happening around the tables..... The butternut squash soup was creamy and delicious. The steak house salad was good portion and fresh. The steak was wonderfully prepared, the right crispiness on the outside, and inside is tender, juicy and to the right medium rareness. We enjoyed every bite of it. The serving plate is a little underwhelming... Eventhough I understand it is a less expensive Winterlicious menu, the serving plate does make a difference in the degree of enjoyment. The chocolate sin cake was sinfully and deliciously creamy and so chocolatey ! I can have much more of it ! The caramel cheese cake and the creamy and smooth raspberry sorbet were enjoyed by my sons too ! Great evening overall, and a memorable night !
