    The tables are so close together you cannot have a private conversation. Our reservation was set for 7:15 and there were no tables available for 30 minutes. Great food, great wines, the other issues are fixable.

    Nice place. Food was very good. Portions very small for the price. Small baked potato, salad and side of mushrooms. Steak was charred on the outside which took away from great inside taste.

    Wait staff was horrible. Slow, rude, inattentive. The food was made incorrectly. Salads came before our appetizers. Our entrees had to be sent back twice. Our bill came with our entrees and we never were asked for anything else.

    There was as a contrast between the quality of the food and the service this past weekend. The appetizers, salad were all served much too quickly, and pretty much all together, and not the order you would expect. The entrees came flying out while we were halfway done with what we already had on the table. The runners quickly offload the hot plates. I noticed that if there wasn't a direct route to the table they would often have to dump the plate somewhere to cool off their hands before resuming the race to the table. The forth entree came out pretty late in the same hastily manner. People waiting for tables were hovering over our table since we were near the door. I would assume it was an off (weekend) night and give them one more try.

    Seating was in an undesirable, high-traffic and noisy area for a date with a reservation. Entré was terrible and overall food presentation seemed lazy and highly unimpressive. I ordered the grilled chicken and my friend ordered the steak. Two big slabs of meat lacking any flavor and seasoning (my friend had to load on the table salt just for steak to be edible) on a plate with our one side crammed in a coffee cup. The desserts were remarkably better tasting. Service in the beginning was completely lacking, until a second server finally stepped in and was much more attentive. I would not return again as this experience was second-rate and the meal was very overpriced compared to its quality.

    Service is OK, not great. Food is OK, very salty. Nothing special. I ordered the Steakhouse Linguini and Meatballs with Vodka sauce. The vodka sauce is just like plain marinara sauce. We ordered Ahi Tuna for appetizer, and it was delicious. Waiter was not the greatest waiter.

    I loved the Ambience of the restaurant but. I had lobster ravioli which was really dried out and very small for the price. My husbands steak was good. We rarely saw our waiter. Our table rocked The entire time. Our food was already gone by the time he came back to check on us. So I couldn't even tell him my pasta was dried out and to fix table. They did offer free dessert which was nice. Then someone else brought check and we never saw him again. We sat along the wall where the door was. That was terrible. So close to other people. You could hear their entire conversation. The bar area looked cool though. And I did See other peoples food coming out. Like the burgers. They looked good but not sure. For $75 bucks I just wouldn't go back.

    I ordered the grilled salmon. It was very fresh and tender, but it had no flavor. Fortunately, my side was the sauteed mushrooms, which were strongly flavored. I cut up my salmon and mixed it with the mushrooms, and that made it taste pretty good. My husband ordered the Baseball Cut Top Sirloin. It was cooked correctly, but it was not tender as he expected it to be; the meat was chewy and contained gristle. We liked our server - he was friendly and prompt.

    The food is good but over-priced... We've been multiple times and the quality of food varies. The first time we went a year or so ago it was wonderful. I've been disappointed on every subsequent visit since then. This last time our server didn't even come to the table until after another employee had taken our drink and appetizer order and then tried to take our menus without taking our order. Complete lack of communication among staff that was disappointing. If you go in not expecting great anything you won't be disappointed. The ambiance is wonderful and could be romantic although there always seems to be a lot of kids there.

    The hamburger that was ordered medium rare arrived in 2 pieces and overcooked. The ribeye steak was perfect. Generally a great place but there's always something a touch off. The ladies room was also out of toilet paper which should not happen in a place that is trying to be more upscale.

  • Very Nice, Reservation Issue
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    The restaurant was very nice and the food was great. However...We made advanced reservations through OpenTable....We specifically asked for a private table or booth. It's as if the note was not passed along by OpenTable or the restaurant did not care to read or act upon. We were seated on a long bench open table seating without any privacy for a special event. It was less than satisfactory in that regard.

    The steak was excellent, cooked to perfection, and the service was perfect. Chop serves high quality meat, and the sides are always tasty, with vegetable options that are out of the ordinary ones served at other nice restaurants. The food and wine are reasonably priced.

    We went to Chop on an invite from a friend and we came away really impressed. The ambiance is really nice, feels like a neighborhood joint. The food was fantastic, maybe a step below a Ruth's Chris but a major step up from an Outback, the steaks were delicious, the side dishes were tasty, and holy cow you have to try the pecan torte for dessert. We will definitely be back.

Food was over cooked and service was below average. Bartender was excellent but dollar for dollar it is not worth the price and we won't be going back wondering how they stay in business

    Love the Chop the first time we came. It was moist and most delicious. But this time the Chop was really charred on the outside but pretty rare on the inside. Not sure I wanted to eat pork chop rare. They tried to cook the same piece again but even the second time around it was still rare. The manager did give me a pork tenderloin instead but it was just okay. Service was great.

    Food was excellent. The only downside was they were out of items listed on the menu - both beer and food. Waiter stated beer was not available because they were in the process of changing their menu. Food was not available because they had run out early in the evening. Pork chop was excellent, as was the flat iron steak salad.

    As a party of four, we went for Thursday's special "Date Night" - four course meal for two for $39 total. Heck of a deal! Will do again. Food was superb - as good as you'll find in SE Chandler. Pork chop is a killer. Our service was truly outstanding. Asked for a couple of special things - got them. In addition, the evening's manager stopped by our table and asked if we were satisfied. We were. The whole place feels "right".

    I have no problem dishing up some money for a great dinner but paying 22 dollars which is a cheaper steak that they have wasn’t worth it. I got a very small steak about the size of my hand and a small baked potato and that was it. No salad, vegetables anything like that. I left the restaurant still hungry. Who know you could dish out over 70 dollars for two people and leave still hungry. Other than that, the service was great and place looks awesome. Just wish it was cheaper or they gave you more for your buck!

    My fiance and I went to Chop for an early dinner. The ambience and service were superior, but the food was not as impressive. Almost all of it was overcooked and not seasoned very well. We did speak with an event specialist and found this restaurant to be a great spot for group dining. Even though we were not impressed with the food, we are still considering booking Chop for a pre-wedding party. There is a large, secluded room that accomodates up to 50 guests and they have flexible menu options.
