    Let me start with the food. My Prime rib was excellent and the burger was scrumptious and the chicken sandwich was great too. There was plenty of food on each dish. The service was good but they could have come around more. When they did come around they were all friendly.

  • Should know how to cook a steak
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    A restaurant claiming to be a steakhouse should know how to cook a steak properly. Both of our steaks were overcooked to almost well done when ordered medium. The flavours were great in the toppings but steak was not juicy as it should have been. Our server was great but we feel like more should have been done (by the manager) to correct the flaw in cooking. It was offered to have the steaks sent back and recooked but we were on a time crunch and didn't have the luxury of time. We were given a coupon to enjoy free streak bites at our next visit (with the purchase of an entrée). I feel like if they were going to do that, they should have just comped our appetizer that we had ordered that evening.

    We were a party of 6, the restaurant has a typical steakhouse ambiance, not too noisy . It was the food that was pretty bad....even the steak . Three of us has the lobster fettuccine , no discern able lobster in a $23 bowl of pasta ( the others rated that as 2/10). One had a $35 Gorgonzola tenderloin....it came sitting in a pool of cream sauce ( that was the Gorgonzola) but was then covered in what was a thick brown barbeque sauce.....really awful. For that price he was offered a choice Of potato, fries or vegetables ....? For $35 they could not have given him both a potato and veg.? It was a really bad meal, last night we abandoned Open Table and went to the French Bistro instead and had a Lovely meal.

    Our dining experience at the Chop Steakhouse & Bar was great, food was good and the service was very helpful and pleasant. The only thing that I felt was off was the ambiance we were sat in a booth, and in my view, fine dining isn't sitting in a booth, but at a table with chairs and tablecloths. Sitting in a booth is that same as going to Denny's or ABC. I also wasn't found of sitting by the entrance and my husbands view was looking out at the entrance into the restaurant.

    The meal arrived looking more like an appetizer than a meal and represented poor value for the money at best. We shared our experience with others and all seem to agree to not return. Yama's Greek restaurant in Kelowna does it much better. The service was the only highlight of the evening.

    My wife and I had planned to be traveling through Calgary for our anniversary and had made a reservation at Chop. We stayed longer in BC and with only two day's notice, cancelled the Calgary Chop reservation and made plans for Chop Kelowna... we were not disappointed. Managing the reservation was a snap. Once at the restaurant, the host staff were quick to greet us and escort us to our table. Our server for the evening made it a resounding success... she was attentive & engaging while still giving us time ad space to enjoy our special night. We had a great dinner!

    I have to admit that I do not try many different things on the menu, because I just have to order the same thing all the time, it is so fantastic. We shared the shrimp cocktail and also the lobster, scallop and gorgonzola dip, then we both had the maple bourbon haddock, which is to die for! Absolutely scrumptious!

    It took us over 3 hours from seating to get our bill and pay it. We were out for a family dinner, 6 adults and 2 children and the kitchen screwed up so badly that not only didn't we get our entrees well into our second hour of waiting but not all the entrees came out on time. The lighting is dark in the dining room which makes reading the menu difficult. Our server was genuinely apologetic and the manager came out with a canned speech about how they didn't have enough servers (we could tell it was the kitchen's problem, not the number of servers), and they did give us 16% off the bill. But the food was still overpriced for the quality (the steaks we had weren't the best).

    We ordered Rib Eye - and was charged - yet I received a Sirloin it was very tasty so I did not make an issue of it - My wife asked about veg. with the dinner - it was a baked potato or veg at extra charge - she orderd Steak and Lobster - dinner arrived no baked potato but did have veg. also a stuffed tomato on both plates, I specifically asked if any item went with the meal - Lobster ok, steak nothing I could not do at home - also nearly choked on a piece of meat which was stringy - We were celebrating my husbands BD - impersonal card and cupon - Our meal the most expensive we have ever had and we eat at many of Kelowna's Finest. When out for dinner I hope to receive a meal that surpasses what I could do at home, this was not the case

    Its an expensive place and the foods not all that great, steaks were good, but the fries were terribly salty, you can't taste anything but the dijon mustard seed on the burgers, and mushroom ravilois was subpar. It was a very disapointing place, even more so for the price. That being said the decor looks amazing, and the ambience is very nice, the wine tasting at the front was a great touch, the whole interior of the place looks amazing. The waitress was friendly and the service was nice. If I heard the food had improved I would be back, but until then I'd reccomend a different steak house.

    We booked a table for 14. They put us in a seperate non air conditioned area and we were spread out between three tables. They didn't have many menu items as they are changing their menus but didn't tell us until we'd try to order each. The gluten free menu is not gluten free just gluten friendly therefore they do not have a gluten free menu. The one waitress snapped back at us when we were frustrated trying to order. She said she'd send the cook out which never happened. They finally moved us to a cooler area and we were finally served. Food was ok but after all that I was disappointed. Manager was great. He listened, he was calm, and he comped our drinks. Despite though, we'd never go back.

    We heard mixed reviews of this place so we weren't sure what to expect, but the service was good and food tasty with steaks cooked as we ordered. Cesar salad was also delicious. My comment for improvement is that we felt a little too taken care of at times with one lady constantly starring at our table and doing awkward walk by's.... She may have been training the gentleman with her but it was a little too much. She also closed the curtains in the dinning room on a beautiful day which made the space too dark. These are picky comments but hope it helps refine your service.

    This restaurant is amazing! Absolutely fantastic service and food. We shared a shrimp cocktail and lobster gorgonzola dip, then we each had the maple bourbon haddock for dinner. Every dish was delicious! And they carry the best Riesling, Dr. Loosen, which very few restaurants carry. This is one of my two favorite restaurants in town, I can't go for more than a week without having that incredible maple bourbon haddock dish, I could eat it every day!

    We were there for 20minutes before someone came over and asked if we'd like a drink. My husband's drink did not arrive for 30 minutes. I have some food allergies and was basically told I couldn't order anything off the menus because of the prep that was done. Ordered pasta just to have something. Food was cold....daughter's steak wasn't cooked right etc. I will not step foot in this place again. I do not recommend this place at all.

    What a wonderful time we had marking our 17th Anniversary, the hostess welcomed us & was very friendly. Our waiter Chris was excellent,attentive but not intrusive. My wife & I had the Prime Rib dinner, & I had the French onion soup to start with, & my wife had the Ceasar salad which she enjoyed. Now the Prime Rib it was so succulent done just right, mine medium rare & my wife's medium, I definitely would recommend the prime rib dinner you won't be disappointed!! The end of our dinner Chris brought us a couple glasses of champagne & a card signed by all the staff for our anniversary. A very nice touch to, very thoughtful!! Thank You Chris & the rest of the staff for making our dinner very memorable!!

Prime rib was over cooked and the lobster was really dry. Over all I would give you two stars and that's only on the service and ambience. I really don't know how you are still in business.

    Hard to complain about being over serviced, as the young lady server was certainly attentive, but to the extreme. Constant interruption of our intimate conversation was off putting. A fine line exists between inattentive service, and over service, but professional servers know the limits. The food was OK, but my NY striploin (at $34) was tough and chewy (sauce was excellent), the veggies were horrible, however the infused mashed potatoes were excellent. Desert was not as expected. A "chocolate soufflé" is a light, fluffy baked offering. While excellent, what was served was a slab of cold, dense chocolate cake.

    It was my first time to Chop, and I was very satisfied! Food was great, waiting time was minimal, and service was exceptional. I was expecting to have to wait quite a while to be served, and get our food, as it was Valentine's day and the restaurant was packed, but we were served surprisingly quickly, and there were no mistakes on the orders! I would highly recommend this place!

    The food, the wine and friendly service!! For a bit of fun, under special request area, I had asked for a dinosaur drawing and a knock knock joke for our friend who was dining with us, we were not disappointed. The prices were higher than the other comparable restaurants in the area but portions were generous. The Yorkie appetizers are a must try!!! Just wish we were seated in the quieter dinning area in the back so our view was better than the Golden Arches of the McDonalds next door!! We will be back, but this time we will ask for a different drawing.

Baked potato was cold as well as side of vegetable I ordered with my meal. But presentatation, quality and service was great. Would come back and give it a second chance for sure.
