    First time visit to Chophouse 47 and it was all that I've heard/read about and more. Only negative thing would be the smoking (cigar specifically) that is allowed at the bar; the smell somewhat permeated into the dining room.

    Chophouse 47 has the best Caesar Salad I have ever eaten, and the steaks are always cooked to perfection. I fine the wait staff to be extremely attentive, and they always chill our champagne in a wine bucket not one of those chillers. What's not to like?

    Chop House is one of our favorite fine dining restaurants in the GSP area. The food is always excellent as is the service and ambiance. They have some truly great wines to compliment your meal. My only small issue is a few guys dining there in T-shirts and shorts, or crummy jeans. The place is nice enough for a dress-code (Business Casual) that requires a big boy shirt and pants!

    as soon as you step inside the door the smoke smell is terrible. The entrance is in the smoking section which is the bar area. The food is great but I didn't like paying that much money to smell like a cigarette.

    No real criticism of this restaurant except we were not thrilled with the seating despite other open tables away from the foot traffic. This is our 2nd visit to this restaurant in the 6 years living near it. Due to the price tag, we can only afford to come here on very special occasions. Otherwise, this is a place for people who know Morton's or The Palm from the other big cities.

    This was my second time eating at Chophouse 47, and it may be my last. There are better options in town. The steaks are very good, and they claim to use only prime beef, but they are very expensive, relatively speaking. The biggest disappointment was the sides. Supposed to be portions large enough to share, but for $10 we received 8 asparagus spears, and we're not talking big spears either. More than $1 per spear is a bit outrageous! Plus, they were overcooked. Finally, it is clear from the menu that they don't make any attempt to cater to children (despite there being several tables with children). How hard would it be to put a cheeseburger on the menu? I shouldn't have to order a $40 steak for my 9 year old daughter.

    My husband and I celebrated our 42 wedding anniversary and we decided to try the Chophouse 47. The food was fantastic, our waiter and all the other staff were so thoughtful and attentive. It was a great experience. When we first arrived we went to wait at the bar, the bartender found out it was our anniversary and gave us a glass of champagne, it was very kind of her and made us feel very special – one again a great customer experience.

    While the food and service were very good, they did not do anything special for birthdays, i.e. piece of cake, free desert, etc. We also had a 6 and 9 year old along with us which was very challenging as they do not have a kids menu or even items on their main menu that a kid would enjoy (i.e. steakburger or side order of southern macaroni cheese). We tried to piece together some side items for them but I would never go back there with kids along. I would not recommend the following side items: onion rings or steak fries. Very expensive without any additional nice touches included. If you are looking for a great date night place, it's perfect. I would not recommend it for a high class family celebration.

  • TOUGH STEAK

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    I ORDERED THE PRIME 16 OZ. STRIP STEAK AND MY WIFE ORDERED THE PRIME PETITE FILET. THIS DINNER WAS CELEBRATING MY WIFE'S 65TH BIRTHDAY. HER STEAK WAS EXCELLENT BUT I FELT LIKE I HAD BEEN TO THE GYM FOR A WORKOUT AFTER CHEWING THE 16 OZS. OF LEATHER. THE STEAK DID HAVE A GOOD FLAVOR BUT WAS ONE OF THE TOUGHEST STEAKS I HAVE HAD. I RATE THE QUALITY OF THE STRIP STEAK LESS THAN WHAT I HAVE HAD AT THE STEAKHOUSES THAT LET YOU THROW PEANUT HULLS ON THE FLOOR. THIS PRIME STRIP STEAK DROPPED MY RATING OF THE QUALITY OF FOOD FROM OUTSTANDING, MY WIFE'S FILET, TO FAIR.

  • Anniversary Dinner
    Disappointed
    Dined on 8/4/2014
    This was our 35th anniversary dinner. The food and atmosphere were great but have had better attention toward a special occasion. We had requested a special table. It was evident no thought had been put into the seating. The anniversary dessert plate we ordered had a candle, most fine dining restaurants we have been to on special occasions, the plate has been decorated with chocolate, etc. sauce with writing for your special day. I do not mean to sound petty, but it was evident that they do not go out of their way for a special occasion. They evidently have cigars at bar area. When you open entrance door you smell stale smoke. Throughout dinner you get a whiff because the wall between bar and tables are open shelves.

    Food was excellent as always, however we have picked up a trend the last several times that the service can often feel more turn and burn. The servers rush through their introduction, and never gave us a chance to look at the wine list. A recommendation would have been great! The same with dessert service. I only get an after dinner drink if the server offers, as it lets me know if they care for us to stay. Nothing was offered. Pace of meals was also very rushed as the assistants were rushing to get to the next course, attempting to pick up the men's plates before the women were finished. They also dropped silverware on the floor in rushing to clear. Wish they would change their specials up every so often as well.

    My wife and I have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. I've entertained customers, many of which were from large cities and they felt the same way. The Steaks are great my favor is the bone in Rib Eye 22oz. and the Sea Bass is second to none. Those of you that are lobster fans they have them up to 5.5 lb. I'll keep coming back.

    The bartenders were very friendly and attentive. The dining room was quiet during our visit. The service was timely and the server was very informative and courteous. My steak was perfect. My wife's fish, the trout, was disappointing and she did not eat much. Did not expect it deep-fried, should be sautéed. The server offered something else but it was too late. Finally, I believe the sides are very overpriced, even though they are large enough to share. The salads and appetizers selections were limited. Overall, the food was exceptional.

    We took him there last father's day and he loved it. We wanted to do something nice so we surprised him. As always it went over as well as anything could. the food was great, the service was great, not too crowded so it was comfortable. Our waitress was as competent as she was enchanting and between her and the busboys (and other servers that came by as they work in a team), not a thing went overlooked. Most importantly, they get it here - they do their thing, attending to details without constantly interrupting which is so rare today. They just make sure everything is handled perfectly and blend in the background never interrupting. It's always a great experience (and really cute waitresses don't hurt ;-))

    Our group of four had the 16 oz. prime NY Strip, the Triple Cut Lamb Chops and the Crab Cakes.....all were absolutely superb. It isn't the type of restaurant that would draw us on a weekly basis...simply because we tend to eat lighter...but for our visiting son's birthday it was absolutely excellent and we'll go again. By the glass the Franciscan Estate chardonnay was very, very nice. Others had martinis, etc. all of which were very good. Plus, the service was perfect.

    The food was the biggest disappointment . My Manhattan came with a little too much bitters. One steak had to be sent back as it was overdone. When returned, it was very salty tasting, and I did not finish it, as my partner was done. The chop salad was OK, but certainly not high standard or memorable. The biggest shock was when our booth table had a woman smoking next to it in the bar area , and I could smell her smoke. The waiter explained it was an age old tradition to smoke in the bar. The service was very very good. I wish we had gone to their competition for such a pricey meal.

    My family dines at Chophouse 47 a couple of times a year for special occasions. We recently were disappointed with the the quality of the steaks. They were not prepared (per the menu) ... broiled to "... produce just the right amount of carmelization to optimize flavor. " The outside of the meat was not broiled as in all previous visits. It was an expensive meal to have an average experience. I wish we had gone somewhere else. Our waiter was attentive, but not very experienced.
