    We enjoyed our dining experience very much. We called the restaurant 2 hrs prior to our reservation to add 2 more guests to our table and the guy that answered spoke so fast. When we arrived they said no msg was relayed to change it to 8 people. A large table would've been better for 8 people rather than squished into a booth, but we made out ok Our daughter is severe celiac and the gluten free menu is not very accommodating, mostly salads, need more options. It is pretty dark in there so a couple at our table had to use the flashlight from their cell phones to see the menu, again not a big issue.

    Our server was great. I loved the boothes as it made dining private. Unfortunately I thought the food was only OK. The lobster rolls had a much too thick crust. My husband, who order French onion soup regularly said it would not order it again here.The prime rib was tender and cooked as requested The rest of the entrée plate was unremarkable.

    My eight year old son and I enjoy a special "date night" once a year. It gives me a chance to spend some quality time making him the center of my attention while also teaching him a few things about respect. On Friday night the restaurant was busy, but they gave us all the same attention that a table full of adults would receive. We shared the lobster spring rolls as recommended by our server (they did not disappoint), a wedge salad (simple but still delicious - what was that green oil?!? Yum.) and a whole lobster (my son's favorite). It was a great meal, with attentive service. My son, felt very impressed with the experience. And though I strive to teach him respect the service staff at CHOP showed respect by example. Thank you.

    Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. He helped make the experience great for my family that had never had the Chop experience. It was my mom's Birthday, she had never been there before, we were all surprised when the waiter brought out not just a piece of dessert with Happy Birthday! on it but a card signed by the staff. It was a thoughtful gesture, and we would all go back again!

    My wife and I were in Winnipeg for a concert so thought we'd give Chop a try. We had the beef carpaccio and lobster dip for appies. They were alright nothing special by any means!! Then came our entry's I had the NY peppercorn steak and my wife had the beef short ribs! First of all my steak was fatty and thin something you'd find at a cheap breakfast place! The short ribs tasted like they were boiled in a beef broth not braised in red wine!! I've eaten at many restaurants and usually take things in stride but this was truly a disappointment!! Will not recommend or return.

    It was my first time at chop and i think it was a great restaurant with excellent food and very good service. The majority of the staff were attentive to our needs, constantly checking to see if we needed anything else and were generally pleasant. The food came out on time and cooked to perfection. No one in our group complained about the food at all; everything was delicious. The only complaint for the evening was that one of the hostesses or managers (it wasn't a server) was a bit short with one of the guests when she had asked for more wine. It was the 2nd time she requested a refill of her glass and i guess the server was a bit busy. Not sure if there are policies against others serving the table besides the servers or not.

    The ambiance was good. The waitress was super nice. We were disappointed in the food, the lobster tail was mushy, the steak was a bit tough, and too cook for medium rare. The minestrone soup was great. I would order something else if I was to go back.

    We enjoyed our evening and would dine here again. The meal portions were just right and each dish had its own delicate flavor. Menu choice was varied and had something in each categorybI would choose from. I had hoped to have fresh Manitoba Pickeral however it was not on the menu. Also we were a table of four and the server who brought the bread basket could have explained that the roll was cut in four to share. I thought there was only the one bun. A second in the basket would also have been good but she did promptly bring one when asked. Not a big deal and definitely would recommend this for anyone wanting a slightly upscale dinner at reasonable pricing.

  • Prime Rib Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/14/2014
    We had the prime rib dinner and over all it was a little bit disappointing. The meat was coarse and chewy, not very tender. The dinner did not include any Yorkshire pudding (it was not listed either) and the horse radish was served just on the plate, instead of a cup. I do not like the horse radish and the juice had leaked all over our plates and changed the flavor of the vegetables and meat too. The o'jus was already poured over the meat so, I could not dip the meat either. The service was fine and the staff nice. The Chop is a nice restaurant but not the top end restaurant I was expecting.

    While booking my reservation, I simply put a short note stating that my group was gathering for a meeting and would prefer a quiet corner of the restaurant to accomodate our discussions. Wow! I think we were the only table in our section. In fact, one of the meeting attendants made a comment on the way out that they felt like a celebrity, assuming they shut down an entire section just for us. Service was unbeatable! The waitress tended to us, without interrupting our conversations. Would definitely recommend for professional outtings!

    Four of us dined together. Two meals were great, 2 ribeye steaks were not very good. A service person then spilled a tomato based sauce on me. It took forever for a damp towel to be procured and despite being splashed with a fair amount of this there was no adjustment to the nearly $300.00 bill. The waiter gave great service and tried to make-up for the accident and was tipped appropriately

    This restaurant is conveniently located for us since we live out of town. When this restaurant first opened we had excellent meals, then it dropped off a bit. It has now improved again and we had an excellent meal. Still a bit pricey, but there are cheaper items on the menu if you have sticker shock. We use it for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

    The best part about this restaurant is reservations. I hate waiting for a hour in the lobby of a restaurant on a Saturday night. It was our anniversary and it was nice we could plan our evening a little bit. The waiter forgot our side mushrooms. We had told them it was our anniversary when we made the reservation and the waiter passed us a card for free appetizer next visit when the card said it was for our anniversary. At least give is a free appetizer with our current meal too for forgetting the side mushrooms. I felt it was dishonest when we would have gotten it anyway. The flavour of the steak was ok I thought the quality of the meat wasn't as good as another well know steak place.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the Mother's Day Brunch at Chop. The food and service were excellent, the Moms got a little gift and everyone had fun. The washrooms had blank Mother's Day cards and Gerbera Daisies in case you forgot a card or a gift...I thought it was amusing (if you thought far ahead enough to book a brunch reservation, you probably didn't forget the card), but maybe it saved someone...nice touch, either way. It was a brunch menu, not a buffet. Our table ordered a bacon and cheddar omelette, the chicken, mushroom and asparagus crepes, and kids meals. The regular lunch menu was also available.

    My husband and I visited CHOP on my birthday for the first time. We had a reservation for 7:00 pm but we had to wait 10 minutes in the lobby until our table was ready. Once we were seated, had a drink and appetizer, we were asked to give up our table, explanation, there had been a mix up at the reservation desk. The Manager was sincerely apologetic and offered to by us a round of drinks and dessert. We both ordered steaks and found the steaks to be very salty with no other seasonings, very disappointing for a steak house. I was unable to finish my steak for this reason. The vegetables were great. Dessert was outstanding. The restaurant also bought us each a glass of sparkling wine. Our service was fantastic. Overall a B- rating.
