Very overpriced for quality of food. Lobster bisque was cold, ribeye steak was over cooked and we felt rushed. Plus on a $1200 bill there was $100 Niagara development charge???
Will not return.

Never go here. Absolutely one of the worst dining experiences of my life. Go to the keg down the street for 1/4 of the cost and incomparably better food and service.

Second time coming here after 6 years and WOW how prices have changed!! In my option ur better off going to the keg getting really good food and pay reasonable prices, here U pay $90 for prime steak with no sides (which if u want to pay extra). Pesi was flat when order, complained then waitress said yeah we have been getting a lot of complaints and the machine is not working right, so why not be honest at the beginning and tell the customer before they get the drink and notice for themselves!!! Don’t be sneaky and see if u get away with it!

Will return again. As a steak guy, I found it had a great sear but it was a little tough. Could have been more tender. Fantastic service!

Food is OK but not for that price! It's a $90 CAD NY Strip Steak. When they served it, it was soaked in oil on a small plate, which I was told that just came out from the oven. I mean this is not a family restaurant, right? It's 90 CAD steak. I know it's a tourist area but you know. I expect them to put them garnishing, make it nice and presentable, and added a little bit more class to our dinner at that price. My wife's lobster bisque honestly it's good but it's something out of a can and it's $22 CAD. Again, we had a good time but it's not worth the dollar.

Arrived at 8 pm for reservation but they didn’t have our reservation lucky there was room for us. Server was nice but took a long time to take our order and took a long time between courses. We had a 5 course meal the food was good the portions were good. The downside was the steak was great temperature but all the sides we barely Luke warm. Going in I knew it was pricy but thought it would be better than it was.

Extremely expensive. The food was very good, and the portions were great other than the fact you have to pay an arm and a leg for it. Also paying separately a ridiculous amount for a side that does not come with the mean ($19 for a medium bowl of mashed potatoes) . Waiting staff was friendly and got us everything we asked for in good time but never checked up on how the meal was and if we needed/wanted anything else (even though we didn’t). Gave us an anniversary celebration that was absolutely phenomenal at no cost which was very nice.

Way to over priced...like ridiculous. A kids 4oz steak with French fries $60??12oz New York strip $120? Ala Carte sides, $25 for Ceasars salad??? Embarrassing......

Christmas dinner n covid times and Ruth Chris made it special. Not their fault that capacity restrictions made the restaurant lose some of its ambiance- itwas designed to have the warmth and energy of guests. That said, service was outstanding and food top notch. Thx

By far this location is the worst EVER!!! I LOVE Ruth chris, but after coming here I won't be going back. First, when I got there, I "assume" my skin color was an issue because someone at the front desk told me and my friends had to leave at 10pm on the dot, and another couple came after us and didn't have that mentioned to them. We waited 40 mins to be seated and I had reservation for 9pm. It wasn't full inside!!! We got the food, it was amazing, but then the bill came. We asked for separate bills and there was only 3 of us, but they still charged $97 !!! PER PERSON for tip and we made a complaint about it then they fixed it. 3 ppl almost spent $1000 over $200 in tip they want us to pay. Ruth chris, please find new staff members or your name will go down. You may not care because everyone experience is different but if im going to spend $400 on my plate alone I should be getting more respect and not judged by how we look.

Our recent trip to Ruth’s Chris in Niagara Falls was nothing short of a disappointment. Our experience was as follows:

We had reservations at 9:15pm. On arrival we were told that they don’t take reservations past 8:45pm due to Covid, even though the restaurant clearly had access to our reservation made via open table because I had received a confirmation email the day before, and had called earlier on the actual day of our reservation, to further reconfirm our reservation and ask for separate bills- to which I was advised “no problem” over the phone.

While conversing with the person at the front, to see if the reservation we had made a month prior to our visit could be accommodated, the 3 other individuals in my party were listening to staff in the restaurant make belligerent comments. I was already extremely upset at the fact that our reservation may not be accommodated and so the rest of the party failed to advise me of what they were hearing from restaurant staff in case it would further upset me. Had I heard these comments at the time, I would have gone upstairs to the room and ordered pizza or better yet, went to sleep hungry before dining at this establishment. Comments such as “these ppl better order, eat, and get the f*** outta here” was amongst some of what was being said.

We were seated, and subsequently served by someone who appeared to be absolutely not wanting to serve us. We ordered a prime rib, two New York steaks and a burger as entrees, some appetizers and a few sides. As alcohol was no longer being served, I cannot comment on the drinks. Both steaks were a combination of “doneness” -as parts were well done, medium and medium rare. At this point the rest of the party advised me of the previously made comments they had overheard from staff, in order to deter me from commenting on the food quality, as they were scared someone was going to spit in the food. No one should have to feel this way. We packed up the food for our dogs and left.

The steak was not cooked med well (was still very pink). Was sent back and came out the same. The waiter asked the kitchen to prepare another so we had to wait again but the server was still nice but every seemed very serious.
It was my Boyfriend's birthday and they brought out cake :)

It was my first time coming to Ruth Chris steakhouse it was a very special occasion my husband and I anniversary, also the first time we have gotten a sitter since the baby was born. We are local to Niagara Falls and enjoy dining out together frequently. Food was OK there was a potential that it could’ve been better because my steak arrived to the table, waiter never came for a quality check unfortunately, my steak was a tad overcooked but I never had a chance to let the server know.He also never asked us if we wanted another round of cocktails because he never returned to the table which by the way we did. Finally after 45 minutes we were able to flag him down and ask him for the bill where he then clear the table we also reminded him if he could be a little quick because we had a baby at home with the sitter we need to get back to. After 20 minutes of waiting I asked another server if he could get the bill for us and we could pay and he said yes. I did mention to the manager our experience “Laura” and she did absolutely nothing but apologize. After paying $400 and a three hour dinner I will not be returning back to Ruth Chris steak House, rather, I will be going to the keg Where my money and time is respected and appreciated.

Beware - Menu prices are much higher than other Ruth's Chris Steak Houses in Ontario. We were in shock to see our regular steak almost $40 more! The increase applies to the entire menu.

Where do I start: we arrived on time, not super dressed up(forgot suitcase at home so we just went out and purchased some new casual clothes for out 3 night get away).Was taken all the way to the back or Restaraunt out of sight of other patrons seeing we weren’t dressed up. They saved the front for patrons better dressed. The even moved patrons with kids and others whom weren’t well dressed to the back (dungeon). I looked around at other patrons whom were also in the back area with us and they too were less dressed. I felt it was to not hinder their well dressed representation. I ordered a 12oz prime rib medium rare to medium cooked with baked potato. The meat was more rare than medium to medium rare. The meat was Luke warm in temperature. They had forgotten the back potatoes for the two of us. Waitress was hardly ever around to voice concern. We had a 100.00 voucher. I did request manger however they were to busy to talk with us. When it came to paying the bill I was very reserved on a tip and didn’t want to give one yet I gave something. The waitress look at what was given when it printed from debit machine roll (was rolled up)and threw the receipt folded up from the debit machine roll down at my hands and table. She did apologizes as if it were a mistake however the two of us seen it and it was NOT and mistake in the waitress action.

In closing we have gone to “the capital steak house” in chicago” and it was excellent and would go again. This “Ruth Chris Steak House” was the worst food and worst restaurant I’ve been too especially in the Niagara Falls Ontario area. I could never recommend them based on what we experienced and endured. Staff rude and manager didn’t even care.

No special treatment even though it was my birthday. Really extreme prices post-covid. All entrees over $100. Service is slow and washroom was really inconveniently outside. You can tell they are understaffed because of the pandemic.

After we were served our drinks we didn’t see our servers for 45 mins. We didn’t get the free Bread that Ruth’s Chris usually gives ( not sure if that’s because of covid) ....When our food did come, my boyfriend ordered prime rib and it was cold! We had to ask for it to be warmed up. I’ve been to Ruth’s Chris many times and I usually rave about how good the steak is but the overall service and food had me really disappointed this time.
