Good service but my steak was overdone. Other guests had the fish which was bland and under seasoned and also overdone.

So nice to be in a restaurant that you can talk to the people at the table without shouting. Food was good, not great. Everything was under seasoned and bland. Service was just ok, long wait for drink orders and coffee and water refills. Very expensive...not great value for the money.

Great service and food. Waitress was helpful and suggested considering not ordering a certain starter (cheese bread) as they did bring complimentary bread out

I wish it was a little more clear that there was a set menu and set price. Even when we got there no one explained that to us. Our server just came over and asked what we wanted but gave us no direction otherwise.

Was very disappointed in the experience and the food. We were rushed through our starters to get to the meal only to find my piece of Prime Rib was 30% fat. I took a picture of the pile of fat if you would like to see it. Having one dish show up while trying to enjoy the previous dish certainly created a fast food experience

This often forgotten steak and seafood house has been around for a long time and, but for Ruths Chris, is better than its competitors. Great prime rib, steaks, seafood and salads, along with great service and quiet ambience are more than enough reasons to try this gem. We are tired of noisy high energy steak houses where you can't hear yourself think and have to shout across the table to visit with friends. The carpets, draperies and soft chairs absorb the sound in this restaurant to give one a peaceful night out which, along with their great food, keeps us coming back.

I sat in the lounge and I loved it! The bartender was sooo funny and offered amazing service!
The food was outstanding and I enjoyed the energetic atmosphere of the lounge, great spot to have a few cocktails ! If you’re looking for a nice quiet night in, I’d recommend the dining room.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for something fun to try out !

2 days prior to the reservation a hostess confirmed our reservation for the dinning room, then while we were driving there 20 minutes before our reservation, we got a call that they had to move us to the lounge. Very noisy, loud, small table, sub par service, and a very expensive tab was what we ended us with for a special Christmas dinner.

Delightful meal. Perfect setting to meet with friends and family. Server was attentive and friendly. She was also knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. Cocktails were very good and when asked to ensure that they used the oversized ice cube they were more than happy to oblige. We asked that our meal was light on the salt and it came out beautifully. I've had less than ideal service in the past but this visit to Vons illustrated they've fixed what what wrong.

My husband’s prime rib was tough, and they sat us right beside another couple even though the room was empty. We felt that we were in their personal space and intruding in their conversation, and I’m sure they felt the same. The service, otherwise, was excellent.

We have been dining here for special occasions for many years and the past couple of times we were a little disappointed with the service and food. The prime rib was 20% fat, gristle and lukewarm. Service was also very slow, two and a half hours for just the two of us with 5 empty tables and 5 servers. Looks like we'll have to find another steak house for our special occasions.

Amazingly knowledgeable and personable server, Kiertsen. (sp?)

The only downside was lack of enforcement of dress code. PLEASE enforce this. I know we live in Alberta, but I do not appreciate going out to a high class establishment and looking around at other people and thinking I walked into a Boston Pizza.

We had a lovely table and excellent service but the porterhouse for two was a tad lackluster. The mushroom sauce on the steak with a side of Chimichurri didn't really make sense? The veggies were steamed and a bit bland and the potatoes stuffed with asiago cheese then deep fried sounded delicious but they had a sweet taste which was odd, and they were also not warm. It wasn't really worth $250 for wine and dinner for what we got unfortunately, but the service and oysters were wonderful. Not a home run this time for Vons :-(
