    We were looking for a Restaurant close to our hotel and found this one on yelp. it had many good customer reviews, and did not disappoint. Three of us dined and all three entrees along with appetizers and dessert were all excellent. The service was also top notch!

    I did get fish at a steak restaurant, but it should not be ICE COLD. Our waiter never brought the sides and then asked if we wanted them after the meal. The desert was ice cold and should have been room temperature with a hot top. The staff seems VERY inexperienced for the price point.

    I love everything about Boston Chops. Since I'm in the neighborhood so we eat here often. The steaks are amazing but so are the other dishes, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, mushroom pasta and short rib! ! This place is great just for drinks and apps at the bar or for dinner. I always find a new favorite cocktail or wine as well. Top notch service. Just all around great!

    Noise levels here are pretty off the chart- we nearly left but decided it might be worse elsewhere on a Friday night. Things we loved: the popovers remind me of the ones my Mom used to serve with Roast Beef on Xmas Eve- melt in your mouth yummy- And the steak is simply amazing, if you are a carnivore, this is your place. Flavor and incredibly tender- I had the bone-in filet, which was fabulous, and my husband had the special which was a huge 18 oz sirloin- equally amazing. The menu is confusing- I thought I was ordering a steak that came with potatoes mushrooms and asparagus- and it when it came it was just a steak on the plate- the waiter was apologetic but did not do much to compensate since it was his mistake. Service was not great- but I would go back, and save room for the sticky toffee pudding next time,

    We love Boston chops. The steaks are amazing and the endless stream of French fries is to die for. We've been several times and always have great service. It is noisy so if you can secure a table in the Small room on the side, it's not as noisy.

    The food was excellent. My wife and I both had the bone in filet. It was cooked prepared perfectly. The service was attentive but not 'standing all over you' either. Dessert suggestions were great. The ambiance wasn't amazing but it was certainly good. We travel a lot and I am comfortable saying that this is a great steak house. It's not inexpensive but that's recognized going in.

    This has been our third time in four months dining at Boston Chops and everyone we have brought loves the restaurant as much as we do! From our parents to our hip friends, this restaurant is fabulous for everyone. Starting with the amazing popovers and diving into the most flavorful meats, we all agreed Boston Chops is our new favorite restaurant.gr We are happy to drive in from the North shore, but can't wait until we move to the South End as we will be regulars!

    We got the prime rib and the fillet. Both were perfectly cooked. My friend who frequents steak houses said it was the best she had had in a long time - more so than Abe's. For dessert we had the sticky toffee pudding which was to die for. All around great restaurant to have in the repertoire.

    Had a great night out at Boston Chops to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The food was outstanding, as was the service. We enjoyed an appetizer, steaks, mashed potatoes and broccoli - all delicious! The wine was tasty, too. My only complaint is that, despite my making an 8pm reservation about two weeks ahead of time, we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for our table. Luckily, the food and service thereafter made up for the initial faux pas.

    Not as stuffy and clubby and the other big name steak joints and with a sleeker more contemporary decor. Prices were a bit more reasonable also. We were a group of three and originally got stuck in a corner booth near the door. It took a little persistence (more than it should have taken) to get our table changed to the main dining area. After that the service and overall experience was great. A nice alternative to DF's, M's, and the others.

    Fun, upscale atmosphere. The "Prime" steak was sub par, was not the same quality as other steakhouses we've patronized, although prices were similar. Filet mignon was very good, don't bother with the other steaks on the menu. I never mind paying high prices when the food & experience is top quality.

They seated us at a perfect table and immediately brought us complimentary champagne. The service was impeccable, the drinks were perfect, and the food was absolutely delicious. Highest possible recommendation. We will definitely be back!

    Boston Chops is a pretty restaurant with great service! The Caesar salad with white anchovies was delicious! The French fries come out hot in a copper bowl! The brussel sprouts were wonderful! My prime sirloin, however, was too dense and chewy. It may have been overcooked. It wasn't juicy or tasty enough to justify the price!

    I went to Chops with my wife and fifteen year old son. The popovers were very good and all of our meals were some of the best steaks we have eaten. The menu was unique in terms of the preparation, sauces and sides included with the meals. The meat was tender, flavorful and delicious. The service was good and the waiter insisted that I have some ice cream even though I ruled out dessert as it was my birthday and delivered a small serving with Happy Birthday written in chocolate sauce. The restaurant was not inexpensive so I would recommend and consider it for special occasions.

    The steak that they served me was a junk piece of meat (70% was grissle and fat) and they tried to charge 70 BUCKS for it (irony--they called it the "Butcher's Cut")--also, these guys don't know the difference between rare and medium rare (In my experience, medium rare doesn't bleed--the manager said this was "their version" of medium rare--which make NO SENSE to me). That being said, the service was excellent and the staff were very kind and receptive (despite the fact they serve junk for food). I'll never go back here again and you shouldn't either--there are better places in Boston for quality steak...

    I love Boston Chops…………from the popovers to the appetizers to the most delectable entrees, and a wonderful wine list, you can't go wrong. I'm a Back Bay resident, but this restaurant is definitely worth the extra $30 I spend on Uber. The short ribs dish is so delicious, it's a must try. The bolognese is so crazy yummy The pork belly mac and cheese, OMG! The service is always wonderful, but I do always request Jose. We love Jose!!! Jose provides awesome service, and he is super friendly, make sure to request a table with him. I love this restaurant so much, I've brought family members and friends here, and each time, everyone just raves about it. Thanks, Chris Coombs for another super duper restaurant.
