Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We had an 1130am reservation and did not receive our food until close to 1pm. Service was extremely low and unacceptable for lunch time. We were hosting a late christmas lunch for our clients and they could not enjoy their lunch as they had to run back to the office for 130pm meetings. Will not be rushing back."

  • "We were at Chicago for New Year's Eve. The restaurant was busy, but certainly not overwhelmed. While the steak was perfectly cooked, the service was abismal. Our server was rarely at the table, spending far more time attending to other tables or simply not in the dining room at all. The wine list here is purported to be a sellling point of the restaurant, but it was lacking in selection for some pretty standard regions/varieties. When we finally found one, our server confirmed the selection by asking us the price of the wine we picked, rather than the name of the wine, which in another situation could have easily been an embarassing moment. All in all, the food was good, but for this price, there are better experiences to be had in Calgary."

  • "A group of 6 of us went for dinner on NYE, and ordered similar dishes. The ribeye steak and lobster tail were great, and others really enjoyed their sirloins with mashed potatoes. The atmosphere was lively and the drinks were good as well. The BIGGEST letdown was the service (or should I say lack-there-of). For some of the people in my group it was there first time there, and it was embarrassing to me since I was the one who kept raving about this restaurant. Our waiter was absolutely MIA 90% of the evening, we had to flag him down to even order our meals or get refills on drinks!! Even then he never came with drinks when we asked!! We pretty much saw him twice that whole evening. Otherwise, the food is good. Service- utterly poor and SLOW."

  • "I've been to the Chicago Chophouse a couple times over the years and each time, I have left with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the food is utterly delicious and the servers are friendly and knowledgeable. But on the other hand, the plates are old and dingy, the cutlery is laden with fingerprints, they seat you right beside the only other people in the section, and there is a cold breeze blowing directly from the window onto your back. And when you ask for a different table, you're told that two people can't sit at a table for four (in the end, our server broke the rule for us thankfully). So if good food is enough for you, you'll love Chophouse. But if you want more, you'll have to go elsewhere."

  • "Service was too slow. We came at 11:45, but our order was not even taken by 12:35, and left without eating. Very disappointed!"

  • "Chateau Briand for 2 with Mushroom trio and Truffle butter sooooooo amazing!. Meal was melt in my mouth and would repeat that selection without hesitation. Lobster macaroni is now my new favourite comfort food if I could repeat the recipe myself. S'mores tableside was the perfect way to top off the meal experience. Beuhler red wine suggestion by bar tending staff was perfect suggestion for our Thursday night dinner out"

  • "This restaurant is well situated downtown Calgary. I have been to lunch here various times. The service is always excellent. The wine list interesting. The lunch menu is varied and the food is excellent with innovative variations such as a pretzel bun with the chicken club. I have never been here for dinner. I would recommend this restaurant at any time of the year."

  • "Ordered a Filet for Two and a "Tomahawk" Rib Eye for Two, to be shared amongst four people. The filet was fine but the portion of Rib Eye that I received was far too fatty ... I had about three bites of meat. I've had better steaks elsewhere. Wine was excellent. The waiter and service was excellent."
