    Amazing service and great food. Our waitress was very knowledgable about what wines paired with each entree. Was a bit on the dark side for lighting but it just made our dinner seem a bit more intimate. Not really a bad thing. We were very pleased with the portion sizes and the cost.

    The dinner for the four of us took 2 hours and 40 minutes. This was not by our choice. It took 30 minutes to get a salad...20 more minutes for appetizers...45 more minutes for our main course...20 more minutes for dessert. The server up-selled us on everything and said things like "or you can have the truffle infused mash potatoes for a small charge more...they are soooo good" but would never reveal the price or said "you could have the chop experience with these steaks for a small charge" but did no say what the charge was. The point is that your customer should not have to pry that information out of the server. If you want the f*cking up-sell don't be sketchy about it. Nor did the menu list the price for these add ons. Further, if I want to have a 2 hour and 40 minute dinner, it should be my choice. I should no be held hostage in your restaurant for 2 hours and 4 minutes and wait 45 minutes for my steak To top it all off, my mother's mashed potatoes and steak were cold. I will not come back to your restaurant nor will I say good things about it to others. This is the second experience I have had like this in this restaurant in a year.

    Our whole family (over 21's) loves Chop! We have never had a bad experience or a bad meal. Steaks are top notch and staff attentive without being in your face. Appetizers have all been sampled and all are incredible. Staff place parties far enough away from each other so you feel like you are not right next to another party.

    My husband and I visited Chop for the first time to celebrate our Anniversary. I was able to make a reservation on-line, confirmed by a friendly phone call. We arrived at 5pm as we are early diners. There was abundant parking . Upon entering the outside doors, we were greeted by the hostess opening the inside doors for us. The atmosphere was delightful; comfy booth seating, very high ceilings, marble wall tiles , perfect lighting, it was warm and inviting. Our waiter, Steven, greeted us promptly & checked with us occasionally; perfect service! We started with a cold, crispy delicious Cesar salad . We both chose prime rib which was done to perfection & delicious. Honestly was a perfect dining experience can't wait to return!

    I had been to CHOP not that long ago with a group of 10 people for dinner and my dinner as well as at least 6 others was really bad and had to be returned (one poor person had to return it twice); so I was nervous about lunch, but was pleasantly surprised how good my hamburger and fries were.

We appreciated the private room and will be going back there in the very near future with another private party!! I have never been treated so well at any other restaurant and would absolutely recommend this one to any of my friends and family!! Thank u Chops Steakhouse for making this special dinner a great night out for everyone !!!

    We were out for our anniversary and your staff was great. Attendance , knowledgeable and helpful. We have been to Chop 4 or 5 times and always enjoyed the food and ambiance. This time the rice was slightly overlooked and the green beans were undercooked, but we would still come back as this is the first meal we had any complaints about.

    The service was slow, the beans were under cooked even when returned, one steak was over done and took 20 min to return.To be fair the other three meals were good. We were offered dessert and one meal was deleted.The manager did come out to talk to us and was polite.

    So we went there for my wife's birthday dinner. We had great service however my wife's prime rib was chewy not buttery and tender like she remembers it. She ate it and didn't want to complain. The mac n cheese was delicious as always and my steak was delicious. We did notice the green beans were more crunchy than expected. We weren't sure if they had not been cooked long enough or that's the way you serve them. Our Server was very knowledgable made great food and wine suggestions. She was very attentative and pleasant. One other thing we noticed was that there were no steak knives when the dinner came out. My wife had to get up to ask for them so we could eat our dinners. A simple oversight but from being there before we were surprised.

    I've been to chop previously and never have I felt like I was at a glorified mcdonalds. The food and our server were very good. The ambiance and noise level were unbelievable. There is no dress standard or edicate in the restaurant. I figure that if someone is paying $400+ for an evening they should atleast enjoy it in every aspect.

    Second time around and loved it both times. Food, service and surroundings was a comforting experience. Left without regrets. if i were to complain, i'd say it's a little dark inside, but that's probably because my eyesight isn't great. As i say that, i also thought the darkness made it cozy.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    I went to the chop to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday with the family. It was all of our first time there. We often go to the keg and decided on giving chop a try. The main issue is that almost all the items have some form of alcohol in them instead of the steak option. We do not drink alcohol or eat anything with alcohol in it. Steak was orders medium bit showed up medium well. All of our meals had some form of mistakes made in them. Instead of the steak bites which were really good. The general manager went above and beyond to accommodate us and in the end compensated the meal. All in all if you do not drink alcohol and want to have anything else other than steak you're extremely limited.

    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.
