    The restaurant is nicely laid out and the surroundings are very nice and contemporary, however food quality and taste...well...just okay. I've been to this location many times before and the quality has definitely slipped. If casual atmosphere is what you are after than it is what you will get, if you are a foody then look elsewhere.

    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.

    We were a party of 6 that went to Chop downtown for a business dinner. The dinning room in Chop has only 2 tables that accommodate 6 people (they squish you in a both that really seats 4) We didn't fit so we had to eat in the bar which was not original idea of the dinner. The waitress was great but the food was very average. I would never go back

    Ate at Chop for the first time and probably wouldnt again. For a steakhouse the steaks weren't that good. Prime rib was tough and closer to rare than medium rare which is normally fine but there is a reason prime rib is served medium rare only. We have eaten at a lot of other fine dining restaurants and didnt walk away trying to find things to say good about it. The wait staff was good and we were close to the door so the music from the bar made it a little loud to sit down and have a discussion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I ordered the dinner experience filet. The filet was extremely salty. Upon review of the tab, I noticed I was charged $41.95 for the filet while the menu price was $35.95. I asked why the difference. The server stated that the lower price was for a 6 oz filet and he gave me the 8 oz. the menu stated no portion size of filet rather the server took it upon himself to determine the larger filet and charge me as such. I would have preferred the 6 oz. When the manager came over he stated he would adjust the tab to reflect the concern. He then reduced the total by $3.00. Not sure where that number came from cause the advertised price was $6.00 different. Anyway this was an insult rather than addressing my concern. Chop downtown no more!

    Chop is one of those "it's okay " type restaurants for lunch. Food is standard however not exceptional. It has been about 7 or 8 mos ago that I was at Chop , prior to my most recent visit for lunch & the food is still average in taste & appearing "tired" when presented. The location is convenient and easy to get into if "in a pinch" for a lunch spot at noon & that would likely be my reason for my next visit.

    I often take clients out to dinner or lunch and since we have been to other Chop locations we chose the downtown location to suit my clients. The food was exceptional and we weren't apart of other guests conversations. My wife does interior design and she went off about how well the whole place looked. I think because we sat in the dining room which is above the bar(2nd floor) , the bar service was extremely slow. We arrived about 15 minutes before my clients and when they sat down, my drink arrived about 5 minutes later. It was at least another 15 until they got theirs which made it uncomfortable because we began to wonder if the waiter forgot. But honestly that was the only hitch of the evening and overall the experience was great.

    I have eaten at the Chop on the Southside of Edmonton and the downtown location. The menu is extensive and has many items to choose from. The parmesan chicken wings to start are amazing as are the steak bites. My wife and I had appetizers, wine and each had an entrée and the bill was under $100 which I thought was great. Great food, great service and fair prices. This restaurant has the model down. Highly recommend it!

    If it wasn't for the $50 please come back apology gift card, we wouldn't. We cancelled a reservation at the Hotel Mac to go "somewhere different" for Mother's Day. Along with my elderly parents, we walked in to Chop Downtown expecting a great brunch. Our waiter greeted us, but appeared ignorant of the menu and couldn't answer questions we posed. Once finally ordering our food, with special requests, we proceeded to wait. We had to flag our waiter down multiple times to ask for refills of coffee, hot water or cold water. Eventually, 3 of our meals arrived, but they were cold. The fourth meal never arrived at all. Our waiter never came back to check on us or ask how our meal was. Thankfully the manager apologized and tried to make amends.

    Drove in from out of town to take my mother and sister out for mother's day brunch. First off - advertised as a brunch but not a brunch, advertised with special food for occasion - not the case. Service was awful, server was rude, un-attentive and careless. Food was terrible and really overpriced for quality, taste and quantity. All staff seemed to be having a personal party and oblivious or uncaring that patrons were there (singing at top of lungs, caring on personal conversations, spending more time with each other then customers). I can continue but truly there is no point. I am more upset on the fact that my semi-retired mother had to witness and experience this environment when it was supposed to be a very special occasion for her.

    Chops at the Sutton Downtown was a great place to eat and mix for our dining group of 11. The staff accommodated us graciously, in spite of our moving the reservation time by 1 1/2 hrs due to meeting delays. We were treated to our own private room that was perfect size for the group. Nearly everyone ate steaks, which were done to individual perfection. Not the first time at Chops by a long ways, but the first time Downtown. The bar looked very appealing as well, but we finished up relaxing privately.

    We were booked with another restaurant but got turned away because we arrived with a baby. Pros:Chop got us in really quickly and were very accommodating. Our appetizers arrived within 10 minutes of ordering and our starters came before we finished our tacos. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the staff was very attentive. Cons: we were sat in a very busy spot. Staff were constantly working around us. Desserts were nothing special and I ordered a lemonade and was given water with a squirt of lemon juice then was charged $3:29 for it. Over all we were happy with our experience and would go back
