The food is great but the prices are way too high for a chain. That being said I did enjoy my NY strip and the sweet potato pie as a side. Service was great and the staff knowledgeable

Well an atmosphere is the first thing you notice and for being in a basement restaurant - no windows - no plants - it is okay. NOT special. The steak is fantastic - not sure how healthy as it comes sizzling in butter. The vegetables are a throw back to the 50's before people stated using spices. Honestly the worst... More

Okay I know it's a great stakehouse and I've always had a fabulous meal at Ruth Chris. The service is fantastic. The wine recommendations are top notch. Back to the chocolate. There is this decadent, sinful, smooth ultra chocolatey torte on the menu. Have it!

From the moment you are greeted to the moment you leave, your experience will be exquisite. We had the summerlicious menu with the filet. The meal was a masterpiece, we loved the sizzling steak and the customer service. My 10 year old son was impressed and he is a selective eater. He loved the corn chowder as well. The ambiance...

If you are going to go out for a special night out as a couple, you have to make sure you have the porterhouse for two, medium-medium rare. It is French service and I think your best steak available and there was enough to take home for a treat the next day. We also had the steak fries, broiled tomatoes... More

Have eaten here on few different trips to Toronto. The staff is excellent here. They have always interacted with me instead of treating me like another tip. Recently brought some family out for dinner there. As always the food is excellent. Try the Lobster Bisque... it is excellent. The sweet potato casserole was suggested by the staff, amnd it turned...

Few people can afford to eat at Ruth's Chris' Stakhouse, but for a special date it's well worth forking over the big bucks. The ambience was very nice - cozy and traditional. Bring your friends and family for a truly unique dining experience. THE SIZZLING STEAKS ARE A SIGNATURE . GRANDIOS BUT ALSO FABULOUSLY TENDER AND SATISFYING. YOU WON'T BE... More

Although I'm not a big meat eater any more, I certainly use to enjoy a nice steak once in a while. Ruth's Chris use to be a regular favourite spot for us and if I still ate meat regularly, it would be still! Parking, although not cheap, is conveniently located on site. Hostess was always super friendly and prompt in... More

In the month of May 2014, we were invited to dine at Ruth's Chris Steak House, in Toronto. The last time we had the pleasure, was about 10 years ago with stock traders from Chicago. Upon entering you are transformed into a happy potential diner, as the atmosphere beckons you to indulge and enjoy. Staff is superb, and experienced. The... More

We had just landed at the Hilton and decided we didn't want to wander too far looking to eat. Ruth's is part of the Hilton, an escalator ride down. We were not disappointed. There were 5 of us, no booking. The staff were really great, as was the service throughout. The fillet steaks come sizzling in butter and their own... More
