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.

Great tasting food. Best ribeye steak. Service was alright. The server was very pleasant to deal with while the food runner was a little lack of training. Overall it’s a nice place.

Got a tomahawk steak for my husbands birthday. We also got the asparagus with hollandaise sauce and the shrimp. Everything was great. The manager actually noticed the asparagus was over cooked before putting it on the table so he sent it back and had a new order put in. Never had that happen before, so it was impressive that he wanted to adhere to a higher standard. A nice experience and would return for other special occasions.

Good steak BUT way too expensive. Ridiculous! Can't really justify the price. A group of 6 came in, looked at the prices and walked out. A family can't really afford to dine here.

We were having dinner with our Nephew and his wife, from Ottawa their daughter who lives in Toronto and happens to be an actress another niece and her daughter also from Ottawa before going to theatre to see Come From Away. We were coming in from Guelph during the wild wind and rain storm on the Saturday evening. Due to the fact we were running late I phoned to let the restaurant know that we would be arriving late as the traffic heading into Toronto was so backed up. I assured them we were going to be there and that 2 members of the party were already in Toronto and that they would be on time for the 5 o'clock reservation fortunately they seated our niece and her daughter while they awaited our arrival and we managed to arrive at 5:35pm with the guidance of our niece who lives in Toronto and could take us out of the heavy traffic and created her own way of getting there! Everything was great and our waiter Malcolm was terrific putting up with our varied senses of humour. A great experience and our meals were nothing short of mouth watering!

The food was excellent. The service was attentive and kind. The atmosphere was very nice. We were there for our 20th Anniversary and they were kind enough to offer us a complimentary piece of cake to celebrate but, we were too full from the amazing dinner we had just eaten to accept. We hope to return next time we are in Toronto.

Always great, highest quality US beef, perfectly prepared to one’s taste, even if that is something other than it should be (i.e. medium rare!). Very competent, professional service. A fine example of “you get what you pay for” - not cheap but every gram is worth the price.

Ate at this restaurant last Saturday and feel compelled to share our experience. Not only was the food absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection (although the serving sizes were more than we could handle), the service from Lorne (and everyone really) was by far the best that we’ve had the pleasure to experience. It was fast, friendly, helpful, casual and formal at the same time, and always respectful. We were not rushed, nor were we left waiting for anything. The entire experience was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend that you make an effort to dine at this restaurant.

Steaks poorly cooked. Even after being sent back we’re not cooked to right level. Could tell by feel a steak ordered as medium was below medium rare. Not worth the $. Gave us 2 free deserts but still not worth it.

Service started out well. Server punched in the wrong appetizer and so we got one and the other person had to wait for the their appetizer to arrive thereby eating at different times. Ordered a bottle of wine and when it was opened the initial reaction was that it was off - instead of offering another bottle or selection the server said - let’s just pour more in the glass and let it breathe. Never followed up again to see if it was ok. Turned out to be ok but should have checked in. Finally when the bill came the server made a point of highlighting the value of the bill for the tip to be calculated from. They got a full tip but in hindsight, one appetizer should have been comped....

We had a wonderful first time experience. The staff were super friendly and the environment was quite pleasant. Our waiter was more than willing to answer any questions we had and explain in detail. I have a few crucial food allergies and he made sure to explain this to the chef to ensure my safety. We had the porterhouse steak for two, which to our surprise, was the most amazing steak we have ever had the pleasure of eating. It was cooked to perfection!! We have recommended this restaurant to many of our friends as we want them to share the same experience we did. Thank you Ruth's Chris!

Food was okay. We have been there before and the steaks were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Not so much this time. The steak did not taste or have the texture of a $75 New York Sirlion steak.

Our main pain point however was the service. Every table around us was catered to multiple times. With servers continuously coming by. Nobody came by our table to ask us how the food was once we were served or if we needed anything else. In addition, the runner (person bringing out the food) simply hastily dropped plates at our table without even uttering a word of what was being placed/served. There was also no spatial regard when placing the dishes. The fries and asparagus were actually partially stacked.

To add further insult to injury, I asked one of the servers to bring us a butter knife for the butter, to my amazement, his response was “you can use the steak knife.” The same server also sprinkled pepper all over the table and my shirt when asked to grind some over my steak. Once again he showed no regard and didn’t even acknowledge the fact that there was pepper all over the table. Lastly, when asked to top up my glass of water the same person dropped an ice cube on the table and walked away by simply saying “sorry.” I had to pick up the ice cube and wrap it in my napkin.

Furthermore, We went through our entire meal without anyone asking us if we wanted our drinks to be topped off.

Cherry on the top, was the tip. I tipped purely for the fact that we didn’t wait too long for our food and took into consideration the horrrible service I received. Once again to my amazement I heard the server say to hi colleague behind our backs “they’re so cheap they only tipped $X”... WOW!

Instead of asking if we were disappointed in anyway, the server has the audacity to make such derogatory comments.

I am not going to tip north of $30 for service that I wouldn’t even except from a hole in the wall restaurant let alone a fine dinning restaurant.

It was my son's birthday and the restaurant was very aesthetically pleasing. My children were already talking about the smell of the food! I was the only to order the chicken. My other family members had filet mignons, and lamb. We also had asparagus, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin and shoestring fries. The food was very good. We also had Riesling - I had a pomegranate martini - my new favourite martini!

The service was exceptional. Our main server was very thoughtful and engaging.

The surprise dessert for my son was a very nice touch! We had a wonder evening! Great restaurant!

We had a gracious experience. What a lovely treat in a rushed hurried city. White table cloths. Quiet dining. It is worth the expense for a very special occasion we were celebrating. The food, the service and the ambiance was worth every penny. We were not rushed. If you only go out once a year, you won't be disappointed here in the downtown Toronto location. The Niagara Falls location was very different. It was more of a modern, loud bustling ambiance. We had used it three years ago. The food then was also excellent. For us this time, the Toronto location was more suited to our need.

This is my third time at this location and it was as incredible as the last two times. We celebrated my mother's 60th birthday. The food is fantastic; it is incredibly difficult to choose meals on the menu because everything they serve is perfect. Our server was very attentive and included a complimentary cake for my mom. Everyone is kind and enthusiastic - even during your walk to the bathroom, you'll catch a smile from everyone on your way. The steaks are the best I've had anywhere; their unique sizzling plates and quality cut of meat are exquisite. Recommend, recommend, recommend!
