Only steakhouse where sides are not included with the steak. So you end up paying separately for it.

Service was mediocre as more than twice the server walked away while I was speaking to him. Was always in a hurry.

Outstanding steaks. Outstanding sides. Outstanding service. Outstanding experience. Would definitely recommend this location. Loved the espresso martinis as well. The only thing I would change is asking for the sauce on the side of the calamari. It’s served tossed in a thai chili sauce, which causes it to be a bit soggy. I would prefer crispy calamari with the sauce on the side. Minor adjustment for our next meal at Ruth’s Chris :)

Service was amazing particularly by our server and those who assisted at our table. The cocktails were great and well made. Negative feedback was for the food. One of our party was vegetarian and had no options to choose from. The sides we ordered were poorly executed...corn seemed to be frozen corn kernels that were not done well. Sweet potato mash had a lot of crystal sugar chunks thrown on top with some pecans...very crunchy and overly sweet with so much sugar on top...perhaps it should have been broiled for a pecan crust? The steaks were not a major hit with those who ordered..and had high hopes for. Based on our 4 member party's experience, it is likely we wont be returning.

We dined on Dec 27/21 at the downtown Toronto location. Very good Covid protocols in place. The food was spectacular, as always. But Lidia, our waitress, was simply outstanding! She was so kind to us, and simply one of the best servers we have ever had anywhere! She has worked at this location for 26 years! Wow-Thank you Lidia for making my 65th birthday so special! We hope to be back for Valentine's, in 2022! Thank you Lidia!!!! Nancy and Dennis from Oakville.

I took my Sons for Christmas Eve and the entire experience was a blend of fine dining without the stiffness. Moreso it was a collection of priveledged persons who really love a great steak and we all came to enjoy it, and we did.

Nothing disappointing. Not the service, setting or meal. Well done.

I come every yr and have lamb chops, sadly last night's chops were very charred outside, chewy inside and quite fatty. Even though each chop was much bigger in size than before, I'd rather have small chops that were lean, flavourful, tender and not burnt. Hope this was a one time fluke. I was very disappointed as I was there for Christmas Eve dinner.

This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. Everyone from the hostess to our waiter, Glen and the rest of the serving staff were exceptional, attentive, friendly and professional - everything you would want from a high end restaurant. Glenn was one of the best waiters I have experienced in a very long time - Ruth’s Chris is lucky to have him representing their brand. The food portions were more than healthy and the entrees were hot. As a bonus we were treated to a decadent piece of chocolate ganache to celebrate our anniversary - what more could you ask for. A perfect evening all around.

Our server was very polite and kind. They also offered a complimentary piece of birthday cake with a candle. The drawback was the amount of time it took to receive our food. We waited 30 minutes for our order. We also told our server that we were going to a show and were pressed for time. Had I had more time, I would have sent back my medium petit filet as it was much closer to medium-rare.

I didn’t like that they had no windows I guess it was underground. The calamari was weirdly chewy and the “amazing” crab cakes reminded me of canned tuna. Also I’ve had better steaks for cheaper. $30 appetizers and $12 Cesar salad which was just lettuce, dressing and cheese was not really worth it. If you want a fancy night out downtown you’re better off going to a different place with a better view

The lobster bisque appeared at our table, before we had a chance to order wine.
The lobster bisque was lukewarm and was mostly liquid. Very little lobster. A few tiny morsels of lobster. Collectively, less than a teaspoon full.
Steak was superb. Creamed spinach was lukewarm.
