Diner Reviews
  • "Hi, we came in to celebrate on a Sunday night. Nice staff. Lovely place -- we've been coming for years. This visit, however, was not perfect (which is how the night usually is). The caesar salads were limp and over-dressed, and to be honest, looked like something served at a conference hotel group dinner. The French onion soup was super salty. The wait for the steaks was a bit long, too. However, they were delicious and cooked perfectly."

  • "I wished I could have personally thanked the wait staff! I hope our tip was an indication of how much we appreciated the great service on my daughter's 16th birthday. With all the great resturants in Boulder, one have to do something to stand out and staff is one of the best!"

  • "We arrived early on Saturday evening at 4:55pm. We did not have a glass of wine in front of us until 5:25 because the open bottle we wanted was not in stock, which the server took 10 minutes to find out. When he finally poured our selection it dribbled all over the table, although he had a napkin on his arm he could have used it on the bottle to catch drips. Then there were a couple more spills, salad sauce here, melted butter on a tshirt there."

  • "My husband and I split the Chophouse's delicious porterhouse steak. It was as tender as butter! the Dianne Sauce was a small disappointment, because there was very little of it (for a $5 up charge). But the steak was so good we hardly noticed."

  • "Our waiter chris was excellent. Probably the best service I've had in years. Chop house is always my birthday or anniversary choice, and has never let me down on a special occasion. My fiance loved the special new Zealand red, orleans shrimp were awesome. New york strip was perfect, and loved having key lime pie for dessert. Keep up the great work, one of boulder's last unpretentious high end establishments! T.Blom former waiter and bartender"

  • "Our service was noteworthy -- in a good way. We dined with friends from out of town and took our sweet time. Our waitress was perfect ... patient, available, but unobtrusive. It's been awhile since we'd eaten at the Chop House. My prime rib was not up to par and my wife's spinach was too salty. Hardly disasters, but disappointing."

  • "My daughter chose Boulder Chophouse for her birthday dinner and to take advantage of restaurant week. It was very good. The steaks were very tender and had great flavor. We were, however, disappointed in the key lime pie. Overall, we had a nice meal, good service and a nice night."

  • "Good food, nice atmosphere and great service. We enjoyed our dinner and drinks and would recommend it as a nice place to have a quiet dinner followed by drinks in the bar where there is more action."

  • "We went with another couple and we all ordered the 16 oz prime rib which we split as couples. The piece we each received was not 8 ozs by any means unless you consider the fact that half of the meat was fat. We each received about a tablespoon of mashed potatoes. My friend asked for raw horseradish with hers and was served it when she was done with her meal. The service was slow and the waiter was sarcastic and rude. We all eat out a lot and we all decided we would never go back to this restaurant. We will be sure to spread the word that it is a waste of money and a nice evening out!!!"

  • "The ambience and the menu would make you feel that this is an upscale dining experience. The steaks were tough and not aged. When you spend over $30 on a steak you expect it not to be served with over 10% of fat. I would never serve steaks in that fashion when I was working as a chef. trout was bland and tasteless; that is prob reason that most diners in land-locked states don't enjoy eating fish. Trout was not fresh, presentation was alright but the fish had no flavor. I mentioned this to the waitress and she told me that that is how trout tastes, in a hospital maybe but not when you are spending over $20 on a piece of fish. The waitress thought that the Key-lime pie for dessert was the best ever, but I guess she has never been to Florida."

  • "We visited the Boulder Chophouse and Tavern for Denver Restaurant Week. The menu for the occasion was a bit limited (2 options for courses 1 and 3), but everything we ordered off the menu was incredibly delicious, and there were some tasty options for steak preparation for the main course. All of us succumbed to the filet, and found them to be perfectly prepared. Our service was impeccable: efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. We had a great time and will inevitably be back. Thank you!"

  • "We decided to have a special dinner out during Denver's Restaurant week. And chose the Boulder Chop House. My husband & I each chose one of the 3-course Restaurant Week menus. The steaks were grilled to perfection, the corn bread was moist and delicious, and the peach sorbet was the best I've ever had."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "My strip steak was poor in quality--great preparation. It was the lowest grade of meat Iv'e encountered in my total dining experiences. The manager (Nate) was apologetic and comped my meal. The only good thing on the plate was the mashed potatoes. As the evening progressed the prime rib was taken off the menu due to its low quality and didin't meet the restaurant standards. I still maintain it was the select grade meat."

  • "For a steak place it definitely fell short, the steak wasn't cooked to what was ordered and had to be sent back. The appetizer was cold, and shouldn't have been. Did love the seafood though. Needs a larger wine list. Now I know why we don't go there often."

  • "We sat in a covered open air area with a group of 10 and the food was fantastic. Everyone was happy with their meal, even the kids with their kid filets! The steaks were perfectly cooked and the Cesar salad was amazing! Will be back next time in Boulder."

  • "My husband had been here before, but it was my first visit. At first, I worried that it might be too noisy; there was a 40th b-day celebration happening outside. But inside, the noise level was fine. Lovely decor, nice booths. The only thing I would've changed is to not have been seated so close to the traffic to the restroom. But once the food started coming, it didn't matter. We're pretty picky, and I honestly can't find one thing to comment on that could've been better. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious! Fab wine, Caesar salad, cornbread, filet mignon, prime rib, white cheddar mashed potatoes and asparagus. And an amazing complimentary chocolate/salted caramel dessert. And leftovers! I heartily recommend!"
