Diner Reviews
  • "It was great! We had excellent service and the food was amazing :)."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The old Chophouse went downhill in quality quite a few years ago. I would say the new place represents the same. Bottom line is we have great restaurants in Calgary and this one doesn't quite measure up..."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The food was good and the staff was knowledgeable. The noise level was quite high in the restaurant but it didn't bother us at all."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Steak sandwich was overpriced, overdone and tiny. Not worth $22."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The restaurant was empty yet they were out of items. Server was very confused and didn't know what sides were included with meals and someone finally took over for her."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Chop House in late July. Our server, Jason was absolutely wonderful and he made excellent recommendations for both food and wine. The duck rillette was delicious and it was hard to choose whether the rib steak or tenderloin ragout was our favourite. The wines were great as well - Cape Crest Sauvignon Blanc from Hawkes Bay NZ is a new favourite as was the Blenhiem 2010 (?) cab sauvignon from Napa. It was a great evening all around."

  • "Food and service was great! Booked party of 8 had to increase to 11. Staff was very accommodating. Would probably go back."

  • "I have not been to the Chicago Chop house before so I was excited to attend. The lunch menu was VERY expensive and not really worth the money I was charged. I had the Halibut burger. It was okay - I have had better. I thought about having a salad but it would have ben $24 if I had chicken on it. The restaurant was empty...they should take this as a signal...there isn't much in the area so they could really put the place on the map for lunch with all of the workers across the street. But with the prices and the quality I will be walking up the mall for other options."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "For the money spent, I was expecting to be blown away. The steak was okay... but so is the Keg's. The Lobster was okay... but so is Red Lobster's ... The Scallops were under cooked, resulting in a not so fun end to date night."

  • "Sadly, took 8 customers for dinner, and the food was poor. These guys were good at the last location, but it was not working for them here. service was great, but some of the menu was not available, and the steaks we had were over cooked. Some of the food was cold. Not sure if there has been a change of staff, or it was poor as they are getting used to the new location. Either way, not great."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Food was as good as always, but restaurant seems poorly fitted into the new location. Ambiance has taken a step down from the previous location. Feels like a great steak house is trying to look like a posh French restaurant. Will bre interested to see what the place looks like once they are fully moved in."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Very over-priced for the food experience - presentation was lacking; generally food quality was mediocre; chintzy, unappealing side dishes; caesar salad and lobster mac and cheese good although very pricey for what you got; service friendly. Can't recommend it."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "They are still growing into the new location as was evidenced by our experience Sunday. Mere minutes into the evening, the fire alarm sounds from kitchen smoke due to inadequate ventilation. The fire dept turned it off 5-10 mins later. The staff apologized but said this was common. Despite a slow night, it took >10 mins once seated for waitress to take drink orders and ~10 mins to bring the wine list. There were more delays throughout as wait staff appeared confused looking for items. E.g. desert arrived with no spoons and waiter wandered between kitchen & bar 4 times before finding them. Ambience is a bit off-putting with harsh white walls & tables squeezed between pillars. Food was good but not spectacular. Not worth the $200 it cost."

  • "The restaurant changed locations and did not notify their customers. This created a big mess! Everyone was going to their old location, paying for parking, only to walk to the doors and see the sign indicating they moved. The open table email confirmation, google and their own website did not provide the new address. We were extremely frustrated at this, on top of strambling to find the new address and notifying all the other guests. The guests were forced to pay double for parking because of this. Upon arrival, our table wasn't ready and we had to stand there while we watched the staff pull tables together. We had made reservations in advance for a party of 10. The food and staff were subpar at best. Extremely unhappy and frustrated!"

  • "I have been a regular diner at the original location. While I always liked the restaurant and menu, this new location and menu is a realization of the potential of the Chicago Chophouse story. A beautiful atmosphere and great new menu items. I'll be back, again and again."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I was delighted by lunch on Friday as it made up for a couple of so-so experiences over the past couple of months. The appetizer and 2 mains (which were the Special of the day) were excellent. The service was attentive and pleasant. I'm looking forward to try the new location."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Had a Cobb Salad with beef. Not sure why I was asked how I wanted the meet cooked. Asked for med rare but was delivered well done. Portion was very small for a main. "

  • "I've always enjoyed lunch at the Chicago Chophouse. Staff is friendly and the changes in the last few years have all been for the better. The new menu is awesome and with the anticipation of a new location in the Burns Building in the coming weeks I continue to anticipate many happy returns. Sarah did a great job with our table and our picky group everything was fast accurate and well timed."

  • "The chop house had the best service we've ever received at any restaurant. The chicken was too salty, but the steak was amazing! We had salad & French Onion Soup as appetizers - both were delicious. The first time we had been to the chop house, both the chicken and steak were amazing. Perfect seasoning for both. We'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in Calgary."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Excellent food and normally have a great experience but will not be coming back. Server Manuel tried to get the bill as high as possible. Asked if we wanted a tower platter as an appetizer. Came back with 2 platters and 2 beef wellingtons when we had ordered only 1 platter. So instead of the $70 appetizer we ordered, we got $174 worth of appetizers. Server also opened new bottles of wine without asking. He also poured a huge glass of red wine into the glass of a white wine drinker. He poured out the glass and there was no compensation for that lost glass of wine. Then we're forced to pay a 18% gratuity. I've spent a lot of money there in the past but will not be coming back."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I would have rated this restaurant a lot higher; however, the fire alarm kept going off and scaring me. Literally making me jump because of it's shrill, abrupt, and loud squeal. The noise level was moderate but i request to be in a quiet section so this was great section to be seated in minus the fire alarm."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Although this place is pretty pricey, the food is worth the price. It's the best restaurant food I've ever had :)"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We went to Chicago chop house for the first time on Saturday night, our reservation was for 7:30 and the whole place was very quiet our entire meal. I was surprised it did not fill up more. We both got the steak after our waitress gave us the steak presentation explaining to us every cut of meat and the best way to have it cooked. Very informative for people who are not very familiar with different cuts of meat. Overall we had a great time and the food was delicious it was a very expensive bill so expect to be paying minimum $100/person for this dining experience."

  • "Our business lunch was enjoyable at Chicago Chophouse! We were served a delicious lunch, the portions were generous and our steaks were cooked well. We were impressed with the service and were able to be back to work on time. Would definitely come back and recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Chicago Chophouse even though we've lived in the area for years, wished we had of discovered it sooner! The service was amazing - by far the best we've received in Calgary (and we've been to many, many restaurants. Our server's name was Parker and he went out of his way to make this a great meal. He was pleasant, attentive and was great at making suggestions and helping us to decide on what and how much to order. The steak was one of the best that we've had in Alberta and the dessert (apple pie) was delicious. The perfect amount of food, great service and cozy atmosphere was perfect for our night out. We are looking forward to trying your new location once you move! Thanks again for a wonderful night!"

  • "Unfortunately, it was noted that the restaurant was not very busy while we were there for a corporate lunch (6 people, 2 dishes showed up much later which were in fact salads) however, we still waited longer than normal for our food to all be served."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "The restaurant has good food, but anything you add (i.e. Peppercorned Steak, pop) is EXTRA."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We told the waitress that both of our dishes were extremely dry and over cooked and she did nothing, except say well that is how we do things here. I had the Chicago Club my companion had a burger, both overcooked. The bacon on each was so dry it was falling apart. Just disappointed that she did nothing. Do not think I will bring clients here again, as there are so many restaurants in the area. Thanks"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Food was outstanding but the waiter was terrible - too many interruptions, wrong food was brought to our table, and he could not communicate."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I had to go back after my last visit to see if this restaurant could repeat...unfortunately not. The steak wasn't burnt but it had a burnt flavour which I'm going to guess is from something burning beside the steak on the grill. The side salad was just average. On the positive side the service was much better although with a different waiter. Hopefully things will improve at the new location."

  • "It was my friends birthday so had took her to Chophouse for a birthday treat. We had a great time - food was phenomenal and great service. Would definitely recommend it to foodies. Only thing I didn't get was that they had this cordoned off area above the bar that had 2 chairs in it ( no table). I guess maybe that's how Chicago folks do it."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I did not enjoy lunch this time. My steak was a bit burnt . Service was slow. The lobster bisque was very good though. My husband and I had dinner there last year and we really enjoyed the steak."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "I haven't been to this restaurant in a few years since I always found it mediocre and overpriced. After my last lunch I have to reconsider whether this could be a new favorite steak house lunch spot, displacing Caesars. My ribeye steak sandwich was perfectly cooked with outstanding tenderness and flavouring. The spinach side salad was excellent and obviously made with fresh ingredients touched off with a nice light dressing. Service was just mediocre but food more than compensated so I'm anxious to go back."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "We really enjoyed Chicago Chophouse for our dinner out. We found the environment to be very welcoming and the dinning room to be private. This is definitely a place for meat lovers and the quality is a very nice treat! One thing though, the menu is slightly limited which took away from the overall meal experience. But all in all, it was a great dinner!"
