    We were looking for a top-notch steak restaurant for entertaining out-of-town guests, and they were throughly impressed! Every part of the meal was outstanding, the popovers they serve as a starter, the calamari appetizer and iceberg salad, cocktails and wine, filets and chops (oh my, the cornbread!), sides of asparagus and horseradish mashed potatoes, and desserts (we tried three). Beautiful execution and unique flavors. Well worth the prices.

    I know Boston well but had not dined in the South End before as I normally dine in the other areas of the city. North End, Beacon Hill etc. This was a really good find with great food and great service. The four of us were from the West Coast and flying blind when we selected this restaurant. We really enjoyed the service as she explained the different options. Food and sides were great. A nice steak house for those who dont want a high end steak house.

    You can never go wrong with the steak frites. The fries come piping hot from a large bowl that the server brings around. Want a little more? Don't hesitate to ask. The waiters are happy to heap on another pile.

    We are circling through all of the top Boston steakhouses, and Boston Chops was recommended. We had an 830 reservation and were informed the table wasn't ready. Finally seated 20 min. late after spending 10 min trying to get the bartender's attention for a quick drink. The salad and popovers were absolutely amazing, as was the bone-in filet. The 14 oz ribeye, while well-priced at $39 was a bit thin and good but nothing special. The highlight of the whole night was the "sticky pudding" dessert, their specialty, which was graciously comped by the manager after complaining about the late table. Table service was outstanding, and the overall experience was excellent, but perhaps very slightly below some of our favorites. We will be back!

    We were looking for a restaurant in the south end and tried Boston Chops. We were all very happy with the experience. Our waiter was very well-versed in the wine list and food preparation. The bread is served as little souffles in a metal cup. The hangar steak, accompanied by a wide selection of sauces, melts in your mouth. The loaded baked potato is the largest potato ever and we couldn't think of one more thing that could be added on top of it!

    I will say that I was quite surprised to find another great steakhouse that I would recommend to anyone asking for a suggestion. The steaks were unbelievable, great wine list, and good sides. Wasn't a fan of the horseradish mashed potatoes, but i think it's more me and not liking horseradish as much. Great bar scene, and very cool outdoor seating on Washington St overlooking Cathedral of the Holy Cross. I envy those in the South End who can walk there!

    It was our last night in Boston before coming back to Montreal and we were looking for a great place to eat a good steak. We were really please with this restaurant. Our server (Brian) was really friendly and passionate about is job. I ordered a filet mignon and it was perfect. Actually, i think it was the best I ever ate. My gf ordered a flat iron steak who was pretty good and tender for the price. They have a great wine selection wich is a must in our opinion.

    Stumbled upon this place one morning, when a nearby brunch place wouldn't seat 5 outside because it was "their policy"... and I'm really glad they didn't! I thought it was just a steakhouse that would be open for lunch/dinner, but they've got brunch as well! They start you off with complimentary sticky buns which was a nice welcome. 5 of us there: 3 got huevos rancheros, 1 got fried chicken/biscuits, and I got the Brisket, shank & grilled tongue hash. One word: Deliciousness! Fast forward 20 mins, plates were wiped clean and we were leaving satisfied. Will definitely be back for brunch again! Great outdoor seating as well!

    Although I wouldn't call it new anymore, I had been looking forward to check out a new steak house in town that would be a break from the stuffy steak houses of Boston. The food was great. The jumbo shrimp were huge, the wedge was fantastic and the sides were all great takes on classic offerings. The steak, well it was steak, but cooked well. They offer dipping sauces, stay away from the BBQ but all the others were great (you can ask for more than one). Cocktail list was great but the execution on some of them were a miss. Dessert was unneeded but well done, nothing new. It was expensive though, about 80-100 bucks pp. I'd go again, but to just grab a salad and some raw bar offerings at the bar. Great music, which was appreciated.

    …and it's been good every time. Something for everyone from grandma through young diners. About ready to take the show somewhere else for a break - but it's only because grandma is starting to remember that we've been there before. The novelty held up for 3 weeks though. She got to enjoy the huevos rancheros 3 Sundays in a row - and each time as if the first. Don't forget to visit the Cathedral across the way after brunch - or if you've got time take in SOWA Sunday.

    The food was quite good. The steaks and especially the fried chicken were very well prepared. Try the spicy broccoli -- unusual and a treat. The warm chocolate cake was exceptionally good. The tables for two are a little small; we requested a booth, which came with a seat very, very soft, so you sunk down. It was actually uncomfortable, as was the loud hard rock music. Two very odd and unpleasant features for an otherwise really enjoyable meal and evening experience.

    We went on a Saturday night hoping for a small, well prepared, rational piece of good red meat. (We usually split an 8 oz filet)...The evening started with the waitress spilling a drink on the party next to us...It was not the spill-but their shocked discussion about lack of a management reaction to the spill that occupied our attention for the next 1 1/2 hours as we waited for our food. Our waitress was very inexperienced, kept promising to come right back and then vanishing. We also felt she kept suggesting 10 and 14 oz options (selling up)....It is really a shame as the food was quite good. Our feeling is that they are understaffed for the loud and energetic crowd. To be fair--it must be doing something right as it was packed.

    We came looking for great meat (of all varieties) and we found it! Beautiful NY strip, delicious pork chop, perfectly prepared cow heart...and on top of that, the salads were wonderful, the ceviche was very nice, and the waitstaff was the all we could ask for. I would go again most definitely when in search of good meat!

    I didn't know brunch was served here, but it was listed on the thrillist app and had good reviews, so I decided to try it out. It was a prefect day, so i was glad we could get a table outside. the place was not overly busy, we were seated promptly, and service was good. they allowed substitutions to menu items, so i was able to get the cornbread. it was a bit dry. the kale omelet was delicious. my friend had the huevos rancheros which were very sweet, i think because of mole sauce. could have used a little more seasoning. Overall though, the food was very good. side of bacon was perfect. would have brunch here again.

    Very enjoyable Friday evening dinner with good food and attentive service. We tried appetizers ranging from the more we'll-known (mussels, a fresh ceviche) to more uncommon (roasted marrow), all very good. Most of us went for different steak frites varieties (skirt, hanger) - all we'll executed and tasty. We also tried braised short ribs which were great. Overall, we left satisfied and in a great mood!

    Another great meal. Some items are pricey yet I think of BC as a terrific dining experience rather than THE "go-to" steak place in Boston. Some argue that the quality of the meat does not match some of the long-established steak houses in Boston (Grill 23, etc.) and I tend to agree. But it sure is in a different class than the Longhorn Steakhouse -- for sure. The staff is knowledgeable and professional -- also energetic and breezy (i.e., they all have an upbeat attitude). I love the vibe there. Lots of South End residents especially during the week, which makes it a nice high-end destination for friends or coworkers (if you work in town). Their wine menu is terrific and the staff make terrific suggestions.

    Service, Food and Drink were excellent. Music was a bit louder than our 95 y.o. Mom would have preferred, but conversation was possible with effort. Soundtrack was well chosen - mostly Sarah Jones + Daptones. Brunch menu offers broad array from standards to steaks and with some more creative riffs between. "Hash", a contemporized take, was very enjoyable, although they're no longer doing the sous vide egg with that. Which they should. But the poached were okay, if not as promised. Kale Omelet was enjoyed, and Huevos Rancheros (with braised beef cheek in place of chorizo) was delicious. Server was very nice. Attentive and responsive, but not obtrusive. Overall good experience. Looking forward to returning for dinner sometime soon.
