    This was the first time my wife and I visited the Chop restaurant and the experience was great. We sat on the upper level where it was quieter. The food was presented exactly as we had ordered and the service was out of this world. The waiters were very friendly and provided a service that I have not expierienced for some time.

    We waited over 15 minutes for our drinks, 1 hour for our appetizers, and 2.5 hours for our food. During this time, no one came to our table to explain the delay in service or food. We actually had to walk around the restaurant to find someone to speak with. As this was a celebration evening (large party), we are very disappointed with our overall experience—especially considering the cost of the meals. Even worse, we found out that Chop was serving walk-ins (we had a reservation) before us. The manager did not comp the meal or even a portion of it, and he waited until after we had finished our meals to approach us and apologize (thank you at least for this) for the complete lack of service. Although the atmosphere and setting at this location is rather stunning, the food is not worth waiting hours for or having to deal with the poor service. It just really leaves a customer frustrated and disappointed. Tip to Chop: when there are food delays or issues with a lack of resources (staff), the courteous and respectful approach is to communicate this to your customers, on a timely basis, and to comp a portion of the meal or at least provide a free appetizer or drink(s) so that your customers are not left famished while they wait hours for a meal.

    We went to the downtown Chop location hoping to have the amazing experience I had at other Chop locations in the past. Unfortunately, this did not happen. We waited over an hour for our food, which ended up consisting of the worst quality meat I have seen in a restaurant. Aside from quality, the steak was blue rare when requested at medium. After waiting for the manager to finish dealing with complaints from other tables, she tried to tell us that we were incorrect about how the steak was cooked instead of accepting that the kitchen staff were doing a poor job. When we found out that the manager and kitchen staff had all been recently replaced, things started to make sense. I would not recommend this location! Go to the west end instead.

    Chop downtown was the start of our date night...thank goodness our evening ended with an awesome concert otherwise this night would have been ruined. We ordered the crab cakes to start, they were ok - nothing special. We then waited for 45 minutes to receive our main meal, my steak oscar was cooked to the appropriate temperature, the mashed potatoes and remaining items were cool to the touch. My husband ordered the new york strip, which is a familiar "cut" for us, but he questioned the quality and again his sides were cool to the touch. We did not have dessert as we did not have time due to the long wait between appetizers and main meal. The only thing that was pleasant about Chop was our server, Jessie. I do not mind paying more for a quality meal, unfortunately our meal was not worth the $130 that we were charged.

    I was here once before and had a great experience, but this time it was terrible. The service was very slow, the food was not great and we ended up being late for our event since everything took so long. The Chop Salad ended up also being quite disappointing (seemed like something you could buy at a fast food restaurant-pretty much a chef salad with terrible presentation).

    Worst dining experience we have ever had. In short, they were out of product (Friday night) and the steaks were so badly overcooked we had to send them back. My wife ordered a medium filet and received a well done (or over) sirloin. My smoked rib eye was seriously overdone as well. My wife's second steak was cooked to perfection and was very nice but mine was so tough I could't eat it. The dinners were comped by the manager but I would have rather had a nice dinner (as we anticipated) and paid for it. The restaurant was only one quarter full even during the rodeo which should have been a clue to us. Never to return.

Food was great, crab cakes highly recommended (just be ready to wait 20 minutes before you even see your server to order your first beverage, double up you drink order! also have your food order ready as you won't see them for another 20-30 mins.

    We have used the Chop for brunch before and have always enjoyed it. This time was no different except for the fact that they were short staffed due to wait staff not appearing and they had run out of eggs and of course had no one to go for them. We were patient, got our food and still enjoyed the experience immensely. The staff that were present were great and the food, sans eggs, was also great.

    We booked in the dining room for a pre-theatre outing thinking that, at least, The Chop at Suttton Place hotel would be walkable to the Citadel. It was our first visit but will not likely be our last. The staff were young, but energetic and pretty efficient. It seemed like there was a good sense of team amongst them. We told our server that we had a theatre date and they responded well. Our food arrived promptly and there was no undue waiting between courses. Particular note was made about the crab tacos appetizer. Delish! The salmon main course was also very fine and presented uniquely, in my experience, in a bamboo steamer. We'd love to go back and sample this place again, perhaps next time in the main floor bar.

    This is the second time I have been to Chop downtown. The first time was for my birthday and it was awesome. Great food, great waiter (Andrew) and overall a exceptional time. With it being my birthday I got a coupon for a appetizer for free on my next visit. I went back about 3 weeks later and it was a complete 180 degrees. The waiter must have thought I was some kind of gangster as he was continually calling me "bro" and was almost pressuring me to buy more beverages. The steaks were awesome again but a minor win. The icing on the cake however was getting added vegetables that we were unaware that you get charged for them and it was $5 per person for plain raw green beans. Will never go back.

    Unfortunately my prime rib was cold. They kindly took it back to heat it up again. The manager brought it back with an apology. It hadn't really changed much. The food tasted very good. The meat flavour along with the infused mashd potatoes and the fantastic side half tomatoe were greatly flavoured. My wife really liked her steak and lobster too. She started with French onion soup and I with Caesar salad. The salad was good, the soup was ok.

    When we arrived here,it was not too busy and yet once we were seated it took awhile for our server to show up. Then once the drinks were ordered we still waited. Not in any rush,we didn't complain but then the manager showed up and apologized and gave us all our drinks free. We thought that was very nice. After that the service was top notch. All the food came out quickly and hot. I would definitely recommend.

    We went there for our 5th anniversary. Although we didnt tell them directly, the waiter found out after our meal that we were celebrating. They brought us out champagne and cake. They also gave us a card with a free appitizer coupon in it. Even before that though, the waiter was extremely nice and knowledgable! He showed us the menu and knew what he was talking about when we asked questions. I ordered the Teriyaki steak, which seemed a little salty to me, but my boyfriend said it was perfect. I ate the whole thing, so it obviously wasn't that bad. Drinks were amazing, I had the pink lemonade and it was fantastic! We will definitely be going there again!

    Very personable, timely and knew her menu - my lunch companion wanted her opinion on whether to order the white or red sangria - she had opinions on both and knew which wines were used for each as well as the other ingredients. She was attentive and cheerful and the food was good. Nothing was rushed but being that I had to be back at work for 1 p.m. or shortly after, I appreciated how quickly the food came. Went for the high cal splurge - steak bites (tender and flavorful!) and cheesy toast (symphony of crisp bread, yummy cheeses and garlic) - can't go wrong. Lunch companion had the coconut lime mussels and the cheesy toast - declared it was delicious.

    Our starter Spicy Cashew Peas was good & more than enough for two. We liked that they bring you bread with your meal. My top sirloin steak ordered Medium came as Rare. As I sat looking at a pool of red liquid slowly oozing into my baked potato, a manager came by & asked how things were. I asked him if my steak looked Medium & he said it was definitely not & took it away. The 2nd attempt at "Medium" was unsuccessful, but I had to eat something! The steak was delicious & tender; I just don't enjoy rare meat. Baked potato was rubbery & I'd swear it was microwaved (server said they were oven baked). My meal was free, that was wonderful of Chop to do & I'd try Chop again because of that.
