“Why so much hype??? Very average with a ludicrous price...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Went there for my bday, it's inside hidden in the Hilton... There's so much hype about this place and like most things in Toronto, the hype is totally baseless... Steak was expensive which is fine if the quality is there...it isn't, flavorless steak, no seasoning, boring... I'm not even a Keg fan but it is better than this place, much more flavor and far more value...

Server Paul, was a total Dick... Once we joked about getting our $55 bottle of wine because it was the cheapest Italian red, his attention disappeared...gee sorry about ur big tip, we left him 5% and I didn't even want to do that... Still our dinner with one appy and a bottle of wine was $337...NOT WORTH IT, find another place in TO to spend ur money...

“Delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Food was excellent staff extremely friendly and personable. Did not like the food presentation - steak although good looked unappetizing on the plate. Prices extremely expensive. Selena our server was wonderful!

“Excellent Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We have been there twice and since its very expensive, we go on special occasions only. They have a great selection of wines and other drinks. The starters are pretty good although very small in quantity. The steaks of course are perfect everytime and so is the service. For a steakhouse, even the desserts are wonderful. I have only one comment, I wish they would add more variety of sides, there are many potato dishes and not a whole lot of choice of other vegetables, the few veggies they do offer, are with cream sauce or some some other heavy way of making it.

“steak to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

The steak was so juicy and tender I had never tasted anything better that steak at Ruth's Chris Steak House.
Even my Granddaughter commented that this steak is better then Grandpa's.
We had the disappearing waiter. One moment he was there asking what would we like to drink, before we answer, he disappeared.
We'll definitely will go back. We want more of that fantastic steak.
I wonder if we get disappearing waiter again. He was quite entertaining.
