    Went out for a birthday dinner with a friend. Birthday was not acknowledged even though I mentioned it in comments when booking through Open Table. We ordered a bottle of white wine ($39), 2 ceasar salads and I had the albacore tuna tataki ($13.95) and my friend had the lobster fettucine ($23.95). Total bill came to over $100. The server was pleasant, the service was mediocre and non-attentive. Our main meal (tuna tataki & the fettuccine) arrived before we were done our salads and had to send them back till we were ready. The tataki had 4-5 very slim pieces of tuna and the fettuccine was barely warm. Very disappointed. So-so service & lack luster food. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    This was the slowest service I have ever experienced. The restaurant is very nice and the food is good. The staff were disorganized with food for some in the group being served by one person and others not receiving their food at all until we reminded them we were missing food. Very long waits between courses. We skipped desert as it took 3 hours to get appetizers and the main course. We were shocked. We had to keep telling staff about missing items. Last year it was great. We are not sure what has happened but the service was unacceptable.

    This was our first visit to Chop and it was a ok experience. What we thought was a higher end restaurant turned out to be a busy and family oriented eatery. Food choices were varied and our selections were great. Presentation was also nice. The restaurant packs so many people in that the servers were often pushing against tables just to get by. Probably not a great choice if you are celebrating an anniversary and want a quieter setting. Great if you want to go with friends or a business crowd.

    My first experience at Chop and certainly the last. We arrived with a reservation and didn't get our drinks for 35 minutes. I told our server to bring a friend's food first as she had a small baby with her and would likely have to leave early. They brought her food last! We arrived at 7:30 and didn't leave til 10:30 and it wasn't by choice. I complained to the manager and was given a $5 off coupon for next time. Trust me, there won't be a next time! Any other restaurant would have comp'd us for some part of our meal. For the price, next time I'll book at the Melting Pot and have an enjoyable evening with friends. We spent far too much time asking where our server was. The manager served us herself after I complained. Awful.

    It was very cold in there when we first arrived but then that was fixed. We felt that our waiter rushed us out of the place. He was overbearing and at the end of the meal he asked if we were ready to pay. Most restaurants that we go to will bring the bill and then say 'take your time there is no need to rush' and sometimes we stay longer and have another glass of wine. The waiter brought the bill and machine, we paid and left. This would not be my first choice of restaurants to go to.

    While there was nothing wrong with anything...... It lacked, everything was just ok. Steaks were a bit tough and fatty. Potatoe was just cooked, not melt in your mouth, we had it loaded and there was hardly any fixings on it. Lobster was rubbery. All staff were distracted from greeting and attention. For the price I was expecting more....

    As a regular to this restaurant I want to emphasize again that I really miss the baseball cut steak on the menu. The manager told me it was a decision form head quarters. So HQ if you read this and you want to keep me and all my business partners from overseas as regular clients, then put the baseball cut bck on the menu ASAP. I don't need the Lobster topping. Henk

    We returned here for our 35 th anniversary. Last year when we visited for our anniversary, we we given a complimentary dessert and a card! What an impressive surprise that was! (The hostess was the one who asked us if we were celebrating anything)well same thing happened this year with the hostess, but our celebration was not acknowledged at all by the restaurant. Not to say they should have, but was kinda expecting something, like we received last year.(another table close to us received a card from the restaurant).So although the food was amazing, the service was not up to par. Our server did not even inform us of the daily specials which we didn't realize until the table next to us was offered the special.So we were a little disappointed

    Just a great evening. Our waiter Jess was very good and enhanced a wonderfully prepared and presented meal. My wife had a chicken pasta dish which was as fabulous as described by Jess. I ordered the Short Rib and it exceeded my expectations, tender, succulent and with a wonderful flavour. The mashed potatoes were excellent. Staff were attentive and polite with welcoming smiles. Made for a really memorable evening. We will be back

    If you want a great meal in a nicely appointed place, Chop on Ellerslie is the place for you. Great service. Great Food. Great time. The large prime rib is to die for and if Chef has prepared it, get the summer squash soup. The best. Oh, and try the mini-desserts... like shooters but better.

    The server recommended a wine which we ordered. Price was not offered nor did I ask. It was $19 per glass, about double the house wines. For the price, the meals were mediocre. I expected the steak to be incredible based on what I had heard about the restaurant and based on the higher price range of dinner entrees. We were put in a small room on our own. It was very crowded and there was no air conditioning or circulation. It was an very hot day, so was uncomfortable.

    I ordered a medium steak. It was very well done and tough. Very little taste. they offered to replace it but that would have meant having to sit for extra time in the oven like atmosphere. We were told that when it was this hot outside the air conditioner was useless. Well news flash. You don't need air conditioning when it's cold outside.We went there for a very special occasion and it was a complete bust.The one positive was our server was fabulous .

    We heard a lot of good things about Chop restaurants in general, so perhaps we went in with high expectations. The food was good but the prime ribs and steaks were not very flavourful, in part because they were more well done than what we had ordered. The server's friendliness seemed forced and not genuine at all, but we're easy going people and left a good tip anyway.

He made great suggestions and when I asked if he could see where to purchase Grapefruit Bitters he went one step further and sold me a bottle as the bar staff was unsure was to where I could purchase.

    We came to the Chop to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised that we can make easy reservations online. The hostess asked us what our occasion was and was quick to seat us. Our waiter Keith was very friendly and courteous and also congratulated us on our anniversary. He took our orders and the appetizer came promptly with timely refills of the crostini! Our entrees were done to perfection and were very tasty. Keith was also very prompt with refilling our glasses and he offered us a complimentary dessert due to the occasion. Overall, I would highly recommend is restaurant to anyone who wants a classy evening out at a quality restaurant.
