Diner Reviews
  • "Trying to get into a restaurant in Calgary can sometimes be challenging. No problem here. If you have a large group, it will work. On a Sunday evening there were 2 large groups and us -2 people. The rest of the place was empty. I have been here now 4 times and only once was it a great experience in terms of service. I didn't know what I wanted to drink at the precise moment I was seated. I didn't get asked again until 20 mins later. Not even a glass of water was brought by in the mean time. The rest of the evening was fine. Food was good and service was more prompt. But I think I am done with this place. Considering the location, others may be as well? Maybe it was just that night it was so dead."

  • "We celebrated an anniversary here and had a lovely dinner....it was quiet enough that we could hear one another speak. The service was prompt and attentive, but not constant bothering. The food was delicious and nicely presented with large portions. The ambiance is well appointed but conducive to relaxation. We will certainly return."

  • "Food was very much improved from a year ago! We had Chicken Ragout, Filet and Prime Rib. Caesar salad was awesome and served with fresh hot loaf of rye bread. Main courses were excellent and Creme carmel and Molten Chocolat desserts were incredible! Well done!"

  • "Could easily have been a great dining experience, however they were unable to coordinate all of our partys meals to come out. We received 3 of our meals in a reasonable amount of time. However we had to alert the server, the front desk staff and finally a manager for them to realize that they had forgot one of our meals. Furthermore, once they were made aware, it took forever to get the 4th meal (a chicken dish should never take over 25 mins to make). THe manager tried to make the situation better by offering us desert (if my pants are ripped, does the tailor give me a free shirt to make it all better!!!)."

  • "While our server unfortunately was a tad slow at getting things to us, mainly our drinks, he did exceed in hospitality. We went to celebrate anniversaries of 2 other couples and he bought each of us a dessert and/or glass of sparkling wine as a congratulations. This was certainly an unexpected but very lovely gesture!"

  • "One of the best things about the evening was that we had a diner with us who has food allergies. Chop sent their manager to talk with this diner and work out how best to prepare the meal to ensure the allergies were respected. The diner was quite impressed with this level of attention and consideration to needs."

  • "Our server was terrific! I didn't care too much for the hostesses, too young and pretencious, almost a little daft and daft looking. We ordered steaks, I ordered medium well, but it was on the well done side...but overall good taste and quantity and great for the value."

  • "Love going back to this place but some staff don't seem all that experenced (this is Calgary after all). I made a reservation well in advance and still the hostess offers us to chill in the lounge (!). Tea arrives, no sugar, no spoon.. Overall, great, the staff just need to polish their skills up a bit."

  • "We booked online to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary and were treated like royalty. The table we requested was ready and our server was first class. We were surprised to receive a happy anniversary card signed by staff and a comp glass of champagne. Made our evening. Food was excellent { steak and prime rib} done perfectly. All in all a wonderful dining and ambiance experience."

  • "Service was exceptional, complimentary champagne for our 36th anniversary was very thoughtful and appreciated; have been here before when the steak was exceptional, this visit it is was good but a little less so. The patio experience was our first and very enjoyable - quieter I'm sure on a Tuesday evening. Will definitely be back and reccommend to friends."

  • "Right from the start, staff was attentive and accommodating. Our lunch party of 4 enjoyed our food very much on the outdoor patio. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others looking for a great place to get together with family and friends for great food in a lovely atmosphere."

  • "Food was mediocre at best. Steaks were tuff and poorly flavoured. Even the mac & cheese wasn't good. This was my second and last try at Chop."

  • "as always chops does not fail. for as long as we have entered the doors, the relaxing scene and great menu along with the wine list is second to none. we will always enjoy chops and look forward to our next visit. the staff is well trained and shows us a very nice time. the kitchen has always produced beautiful and tastefull plates."

  • "The steak wasn't cooked right, when the new steak came it was cold in the middle. Didn't taste well at all. There was a hair in the complimentary bread given."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I had the rib eye steak and it was terrible. The cut was very thin, which is not normally what you would expect from a rib eye. It had little taste and in my opinion was a poor cut of meat."

  • "Great waiter- recommended the steak bites which were really good. I ordered a steak and lobster for the entrée: lobster was alright (I've had better and I've had worse) but the steak was rather dry and in the chewy side even though I ordered medium rare. The look of the steak was good for medium rare but it wasn't tender enough and the steak seasoning was too much on the top and not enough flavors in the steak. Only had two bites of it and took the remaining home. I would recommend not to get the steaks from here as entrées. Desserts (Creme Brulee and souffle) were delicious as well."

  • "Greeted with a friendly smile and escorted to our table. We had some time to visit with our fellow diners before our server took our drink orders. Just before our drinks arrived we were presented with a very small "loaf" of bread (about the size of a hot dog bun). Our order was taken and we enjoyed our drinks. Before our meal arrived we were asked about refills for our drinks. We ordered wine and water. Wine arrived and water did not."

  • "I made a reservation because it was a Saturday night. When I first walk in I tell hostess we are here and she says okay have a seat anywhere. What's the point of a reservation than? Anyways we make our way to the lounge. We are seated our waitress never made eye contact with either my bf or myself the whole time we were there. Constantly asked if we wanted more to drink (alcohol). She came a first time for drinks second time we weren't ready third time we ordered an appy and entrees when she walked away she threw her hands up in the air like she was frustrated with us?my bf got his dinner just fine but I had to wait another 10-15 minutes for mine after his had arrived. The lobster was rubbery and my steamed veggies were still firm."

  • "Actually, we go to Chop Chinook at least once a week, sometimes more for lunch. Or supper. We love it there ... except that we have found one manager who will not reduce the sound of the music low enough that we can hear each other across our booth. She says it is management policy that the music be played at a certain noise level. So today we left. We couldnt hear each other. Really sorry to go - the burgers and the steak were our favourites. The seafood chowder is to die for and we like the Caesar salad too.Nice big booths, great ambiance. But if you can't hear each other due to the canned musics, why stay? Bummer."

  • "Was our first wedding aneversery and we reserved a Padeo table. We showed up and had to seat our selves. When we got to the padeo all open tables were dirty with cups and stuff. It took 10 min for us to get someone to clean a table off. The guy cleaning our table smashed a glass and spilled water all over the seats so we picked another spot and had him clean that one. The smashed glass stayed on that table the remainder of our stay. 15 min before we met our server. Another 20 for our drinks. Food was amazing but one crab leg came empty just a shell. My wife and I ordered 2 beers at the same time she got hers in 10 min I got my beer in 20. Service sucked this was our 2nd time there. First time was a great experience this time not so much. "

  • "Chop is trying to be an upscale restaurant outside of downtown, but has the service and menu of a mid-range chain. All our entrees were incredibly salty and overpriced. We hardly saw our server and spent lots of time sitting with our empty appetizer and entree plates waiting to be cleared."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We started off with the steak bites for an appetizer. They were flavourful and so tender. The dipping sauce was amazing as well. All entrees were fantastic! Can't wait to return."

  • "We made it clear it was for a birthday and our server said " maybe" he could comp a desert - REALLY maybe a desert for the person who's actual birthday it was? A dessert would should have been a given. We had to fight for a mini desert and challenge the bill for a $ 4.00 item. Our server brought only the drinks to us, others brought the food. Was not overly impressed, the food was great but would I recommend? Not likely, the price was good for the food but the service left something to be desired - to worried about the tip, he was right then when the bill had to be settled. Will not be back, sad cause the food was good but I expect better service if we are going to spend that kind of money."

  • "We had a delightful time at Chop. We were celebrating our anniversary, and were discussing it as we were seated. The hostess picked up on it, and sent us 2 glasses of Prosecco. This was a great start to an excellent evening - attentive yet unobtrusive service, delicious food, and background music that was loud enough to hear but soft enough to speak over. We will definitely be back before our next anniversary!"

  • "I really enjoyed the new burger. The bun is way better than before, and the pickle and the onion ring was a really nice touch. The servers are always friendly, helpful and welcoming. They're a big part of why I like Chop. My friend and I have a lunch and then play a tile game called Majhonng at the table. The staff know us and bring us to our usual table. I love how comfortable the booths are. Both my friend and I have trouble walking and sore backs - we feel very comfortable in the booths. The handicap doors were not working for a long time - which I was annoyed at. But know the handicap doors work. I like the big stumps outside the entrance. I also like how the coke is never flat and always tastes good. "

  • "We had to wait approx. 10-15 minutes although we had a reservation. Being a hostess previously, I though the girl at the front did a good job, apologized for the wait and introduced the menu and wine list properly. Food service was extremely slow. We waited over an hour and a half for an appetizer and add another half hour for our main courses, which were nothing extravagant either. The Server was very apologetic. We ended up getting our main dishes in to go boxes because we had a movie to attend to. We told the Server this at the one hour mark sans appetizer. One of us had to stay and wait for our food to be boxed while another waited in line at the movies to avoid getting those dreaded front row seats. Not an enjoyable date night."

  • "We try n make it a stop every time we go to chinook mall ;) food is delicious for a bit cheaper than high end restaurant. Seating is really comfortable n service is usually great but not on this occasion! Our server forgot our water twice so ended up asking another server walking past. N then he also forgot my sangria when he offered if I wanted one more but still had it on the bill ;( we did get comp coffees though! Would still go back though server must have been having a bad day or something!"

  • "Menus are meant to describe the main ingredients of a dish but the only dip on the menu fails to mention the main ingredient, "Mushrooms". When ordering a lobster Gorgonzola dip, I wasn't expecting it to have mushrooms. Needed to order another item, which came out very quickly but the crab cakes didn't cut the cake. "
