    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.

We had to ask for water to be poured, giving us steak knives, no mother's day gift while every table got it (went with boyfriend and his mom), little portion of food, food were too salty and wasn't even warm. Horrible. Will never be going back after this.

    Four of us had a very enjoyable birthday dinner at Chop. It was my first visit, and I plan to return. The ahi tuna was attractive and delicious. The sirloin with three sauces was rated fabulous. I never got a chance to taste the bread as there wasn't enough, and it should be separated so other diners don't have to touch it to pull it apart. Outside seating looked inviting but highway noise wasn't pleasant. We were glad to eat inside where is was busy but quiet. How about some sort of noise barrier, glass or shrubs or both, to make the outside seating more usable. The interior of the hotel was stylishly remodeled; it looked like a new, modern hotel inside.

Ordered kids meal, server didn't remember to bring appy or juice, not until we asked for at least. Food were good. But staff have low hygiene: table was not clean, they even left some used stacked sharing plate there expected us to use them. When i asked to server to get new ones, she stared us.

    Went for my bf's bday dinner. It really bugs him when people make mistakes with his order (he never has fussy requests, but is unlucky with just getting what he asked for) and the waitress was told he wanted his steak medium rare, but it came out medium. I asked for mine medium, and it came out medium-well. We were going to say something, but they seemed short-staffed, so she was infrequently around, and then we would have to wait longer. Food was mediocre- not worth what we paid. We both had the mashed potatoes as a side, and for some reason they thought it would be great to load them full of horseradish to the point of it burning my nose. I'm not a picky eater, but this was really unpleasant. Wouldn't return.

    We went with family to have a nice dinner before heading to a social event. The atmosphere was nice and different then expected for a typical restaurant of this type (lounge+bar etc). Our server was very attentive and pleasant, checking in just the right amount to make sure all was well with the meal and drinks. A good wine deal for the evening and good food overall with appetizers and entrees made for a more then appropriate portioned meal.

    Service was good. Appetizers were seafood dip and steak bites and they were amazing. Tea and dessert were great and served attractively. Mashed potatoes had horseradish in them which was not indicated beforehand, had I known I would have ordered something else. Prime rib was disappointing, grisly and chewy and not cooked to med rare like I ordered. It was really dark in the restaurant, too dark to eat.

    1. Service was notably poor. It took almost an hour to take our order and almost an hour to get our food, and we had to go hunt down a waitress to bring the bill 2. Several people ordered the ahi tuna salad and it did not have dressing at all, whereas others ordered the same thing and it came with the dressing on the side 3. Reservations - I asked them to let me know if I could move up my reservation for 16 any earlier. Less than 3 hours before our reservation they called to say they could but by then it was definitely too short notice for so many people.
