Ruth Chris Steakhouse....is there a dress code??

Will be having dinner there, downtown location, and wondering if there is an actual dress code? I've heard/read from different sources that there is one but is not enforced and that it's actually quite lenient. I don't want to over dress and look like a goof.

Thanks

Better to be over dressed than under dressed

Thanks for the replies. Guess jeans with casual shoes and a sport coat it is for me.

that is fine, but why wouldn't you just call them directly in the first place rather than checking different sources and then soliciting more second hand sources?

No not at all....

I have eaten there in business attire, business casual and jeans and a fleece.

Now, you may feel a bit out of place if you are in jeans but being one who has travelled for a decade or so, I could care less what other people think. Now that being said, I wouldn't walk in acidwash and a black/white metal shirt (ok, maybe dating myself).

Really, while they are a bit more upscale, if I would wear it to the Keg, I'd wear it to Ruth Chris'

I have been there wearing clean pants and a polo shirt.
I am curious though, exactly what is over dress so you look like a goof? I have been at places wearing a 3 piece suit and did not feel overdressed even though others had just pants and shirts on.
I think that if you are "concerned" about looking like a "goof" if you are dressed, you need to "mature" a bit and think more about yourself and less about what others think of you. :lol:

Good for you that you've been to a lot of places, but what does being well-travelled have anything to do with this if you don't mind me asking?

Simple...

Too many people who are new to going out or traveling (i.e. for work) put too much worry into dress...if you have traveled for work extensively, then likely you have eaten countless times at restaurants such as this and have insight that others would not...

Went there few years ago when I was in TO, expected it to be dressy and seem some people there in casual clothes, even wearing a hat.

Ruth Chris is hurting for customers. At least at the mississauga location most of the time they would be lucky if even the restaurant is 20% full.

Dont worry about it. Nobody is going to care.
