    We had high expectations due to the descriptions on on the website and menu. The food received was lukewarm at best and one piece of lobster in the two Lobster pasta dishes ordered was cold. Two prime rib dinners were cooked to order but the side vegetables were cold. Two orders of French Onion soup were warm at best. To me that sort of soup should be quite hot. The servers and managers were quick to offer new dishes and brought two complimentary Caeser salads out while the pasta was being refired. The only problem was that the salads were both very over dressed The deserts we had were the best part of the meal. Considering all four of our dishes had issues of some sort, mainly lack of heat, I would have expected a comp that was properly served, as the two side Caesar salads were not.

    Out for a nice dinner sans kids before my wife had to go back to work for 3 week rotation. The crab cakes aren't made from scratch as they couldn't take cilantro out of to accomodate an alergy...and then they didn't have our 2nd choice of appy at 7:30pm. My prime rib was tough and lacked flavour. The wine list is horribly marked up. There is no justification for the markup. Actually the whole menu is very expensive for what you get Put into perspective, 5 of us went out next night at the Boathouse and with a bottle of wine we were only $10 more on the total bill that 2 of us were at CHOP with only 2 glasses of wine. To top it off CHOP runs the hotel room service which horribly botched our breakfast that morning. Never again!

    This is a fine chophouse. They serve quality beef and prep it properly. There is also a good selection of pasta and seafood dishes for the non steak & chop person. Finally, the servers always appear just before you were about to look for them. Very nice indeed!

    Unfortunately, the food at CHOP, which I had been to several times in the past - albeit over a year ago - was not as stunning as I remember. Service and ambiance were both very good; I was just surprised that all 3 of my party had not enjoyed the food as much as we would expect, given the quality of restaurant.

    Mixed up our reservation so we had to sit and wait while party after party strolled in and went straight to their tables. Finally got a seat and our server was socially awkward as was the gentleman who delivered our meals. Food was tasty but the steaks were tough. The ambiance was a bit to loungy for a night out. Disappointing overall.

    Our server that evening was terrible. She did not seem enthusiastic at all and was just serving like it was the most boring routine and trying to just get through her shift. I have been to Chops so many times but this is the worst ever service we got for the entire evening. Servers name is Colleen.

    I took my son here thinking I might get him a good steak. The decor was trendy and comfortable but I should have known I was in trouble after being there for ten minutes when my phone rang and it was one if the managers rudely asking if we were showing up for our reservation?! Then I got a text five minutes later asking the same question. HELLO! The service was just ok, there was a lot of staff running around going no where fast. The beef short rib looked like a stewed chunk of rump roast and it tasted like burnt roadkill...it was disgusting! My son had the smoked rib eye which tasted like a fried steak smothered in liquid smoke. Disgusting. For the price...I was mortified! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY! Go to The Keg or Hy's.

    I was happy with the service and the ambiance of the restaurant especially the service. Some parts of our dinner were very good such as the lobster dip and steak bites. Both were excellent and a real pleasure. The steak I had was their signature smoked rib-eye. While cooked exactly to the medium rare I asked for I found the steak itself to be very average. I ordered the mac and cheese as a side to go with it. It was also sort of average especially at the price of it. That being said it was quite tasty for mac and cheese. My partner had the Chop salad and was very happy with it. She has been to Chop before and had the same meal. Both times very good. Desserts were on a level to be expected from a restaurant of this caliber. Coffee very good

    Ordered a steak medium well and came out medium after 45 mins. So did not bother getting a new one as I was starving. Steak was fully pink inside and not little pink in the middle. Service took a long time was not impressed at all. Not much to say. The table behind me had a issue with their food aswell so to me this place seems like problems happen daily. I don't think I'll ever go back to chop. For me it woold be the first and last time going there. Place is very nice but food and service not so good. I wish we spent the 100 dollars at the keg.

    We hadn't been to Chop in a couple years, but it was great. We left wondering why we don't come more often. The service was so great and food quality was great too! I'd definitely recommend going for a couple or for a group. We actually had a baby with us this time and saw other babies there and it completely worked even with the baby.

    We went there after reading great reviews. The restaurant was not busy but extreamly slow service. The restaurant bearly had any guests. I have selfhish allergy so I couldn't even have any of their POP or daily specials cuz they have only one fausset where all the soda comes out of including Clemato Juice. For appies Steak Bites were raw ... That is after waiting ages to order .. Onion Rings were way too salty to eat... The only good thing was their Peprcorn Newyork Steak .. Good thing I asked for welldone so when it came it was medium well .. Wouldn't go their again ever ...

    Out for dinner with 2 other couples and requested an area quiet. We were given our own room. It was great as we had been in a larger room our only other visit. Everything was outstanding except the service was a little slow and our server lacked some fun to her. We had to wait a long time for her to take our order. We sat at least 10 minutes before she came in and once my friend said we weren't quite ready to order we waited 20 more. Just not the greatest service. But that wouldn't stop is from returning. Our group usually is around a 25% tip group but only left 15 Friday night....

    The evening started out well but when the food came mine didn't. Waited and waited. Every one else at my table was dining. Never saw our waitress so asked someone who was clearing tables. Finally one of the Managers came out with a salad and appologized. My order had been missed. I finally got my dinner about 15 minutes after everyone else. Had to eat alone as my party was already finished. In the end they did not charge me for my meal. Our waitress did not even know my meal had been missed. Not very up on her part. I have eaten at CHOP before and never had this experience. Will have to think whether I will eat there again or not.

    Went there with 6 adults and one child. Celebrating 4 birthdays at one time. We were seated at a quiet table inside, as requested. Told the waitress about my serious allergy to butter. She brought the manager over and we discussed suitable items. I had citrus soy salmon, which was delicious. One person had the large salad and couldn't finish it, it was so big. Everyone else enjoyed their meals, except one person, who sent her food back. The total bill was $216, including the drinks, so that was fairly reasonable (no charge for the dish sent back). They also did not tack on the automatic 15% tip, which was nice. We gave them 15% anyways. Service was great, timely, and unobtrusive. It wasn't that busy for a Friday night at 6:30.

    Aug. 1st we were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary & my husband's birthday. The restuarant is one of my favourites because it is quiet and romantic and I love their steak gorgonzola. Our serve Laura was outstanding and made our night extra special by surprising us with glasses of prosecco & a card signed by the staff and a coupon for a free appy. The extra touches made our night and I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is celebrating a special occasion.

    We chose the Chop Steakhouse as it was attached to the hotel our friends were staying at and I had enjoyed the food--although pricey at their locations in Kelowna and Edmonton. We were surprised to be taken by an outside patio to be seated in a very dark room--now windows or natural light--on this beautiful summer evening. No offer was made to take us to the patio. I appreciated however that it was quiet enough to have a conversation. Food was good, serving staff very attentive. Would only recommend visiting on a dark rainy November evening. Never during the summer.

    Took my husband out for an early birthday dinner and we were impressed by the quality of food and variety and balance of what was on our plates. I ordered the prime rib with a wedge salad and baked potato. The salad was on a nice long plate with big pieces of iceberg lettuce and yummy blue cheese depressing. My prome rib was huge, juicy and tender, baked potato had all toppings and also came with seasonal greens. A well balanced meal. The chop Caesar was a bit spicy for me to drink, but their Bellini was awesome! Had a frozen ice cube that had raspberries infused in the ice! Compared to The Keg the cost is about the same, but I prefer chop steak house over The Keg anytime!! Was a bit dark inside but clean and had a nice romantic mood

    Got there around 9pm Friday and the restaurant was dead. We were sat at a table for 10 minutes and were simply being ignored even though a couple of servers from afar did make eye contacts. Not even a glass of water was offered. It'll be a long time before I'll go back, if ever. To be fair giving one star for food quality wasn't really fair as we had walked out, but that was the only option.

    We've been to chop several times. I always order the large prime rib as well as the wedge salad. My husband ordered a seafood chowder but the server brought out the French onion. My husband likes both so didn't question it. Server was nice however when our food came out the size of the prime rib wasn't as thick or large as I remembered. The lady who brought it out said medium prime rib. I didn't think much about it thinking the server got my order confused. Food was delicious as usual. when the bill came out it was for a large and 4 dollars extra. I questioned the server and he said the lady didn't know. I asked about the price and he said I ordered the chop experience prime rib dinner so it was 4 bucks more. It's not been that way before

    Just when I was worrying about finding a pIave that doesn't have room or minimum table charge...I found chop. I really appreciate how there was no minimum charge or room charge for booking a private 14 people room to celebrate my frds birthday. We ended up spent around 200 at our own and I couldn't think of a better place to host birthday gathering. It will be the place from now on.

    Came here to treat my mother and the party a dinner late at night. All of us ordered either steaks or the prime rib. The host and servers were very kind and friendly. Everything was great and would of given a full 5 stars if it wasn't for the prime rib. The prime rib was ordered at medium rare for two separate entrees, and both was a bit hard to chew and cut. However the rest of the steaks was good.

Horrible. Will never be going back after this.
