    Our dinner was fantastic and service outstanding. As always, the Buckhead Life Group restaurants always are 5 star. We enjoy eating at their various restaurants all year long and my husband and I have been celebrating our anniversary every year for the past 20 years in one of their restaurants.

    Very good but expensive. I had soup and seafood. My husband had Kobe steak. He loved it. We had a nice evening as it was our 35th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the evening. Wait staff was great. I can't think of what else to write. We did not have to wait for a table. My only negative is there was a group of 30ish men sitting at a larger round table across from use. They were very loud and quite obnoxious. As soon as they drank a bottle of wine the immediately ordered another. I wore a blue dress and my husband wore a blue sports coat. That was quite appropriate for Chops. The Manager was nice. The decor was business like but it looked good. My lobster bisque was great. That soup is one of my favorites. We will return again. Nice place.

    I don't usually do reviews, but I must tell you that for a restaurant the quality of Chops, the waitstaff really should make it a point to NOT interrupt conversation among diners to inquire about food orders, clear tables, or anything else. Sometimes what people want, and are willing to pay for, is elegant privacy for conversation. Also, I think it's inappropriate for a couple to be seated at a 4 top. If it happens again, I'll complain immediately.

    Steak was slightly undercooked but still wonderful! My only real complaint was the red velvet cake left a lot to be desired. For such a fine dining restaurant I expected it to be top notch but I've honestly had better at California Pizza Kitchen. Our waiter however made us feel welcomed and catered to our every need and made the couple of food mishaps that much more tolerable!

    ignored by the bar staff,I finally interrupted them to order a drink. I consistently had to get the bar staff’s attention for refills and to order food. food was fairly tasty & cooked well. service was poor. took to much time & effort to get waited on throughout the night & the bar wasnt crowded. quality of the service shd be excellent for what u pay. I asked about dessert & had to wait nearly 15 min until flagging him down to place an order. I wasnt a priority. 2 other issues that really caused a bad taste were bar area had fruit flies & service was so poor. Staff was cordial, not rude at any point just not attentive. food was good but didnt wow me.

  • Not up to Chops' usual standard
    LarooVIP
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    Went to Chops on a Tuesday night for a business dinner and the food was a bit disappointing. I dine at Chops 2-3 times a year and always have had outstanding steaks, but this time all of our steaks were overcooked -- medium rare was medium and medium was almost well done -- and the meat was simply not as flavorful or tender as a $59 steak should be. Side dishes were so-so; again, not up to the usual standard, as the mashed potatoes were gummy and other sides a bit oily. Not terrible but not what I expect at such a good restaurant. Aside from apparent inattentiveness to the food quality, service was outstanding as usual. Wine list is good but not great -- need more French selections and more cabs from older vintages.

    It was a great dining experience for our wedding anniversary. My wife and I felt very special. Staff and service was above and beyond. The food was awesome! It was prepped to our liking. The only drawback, although not too much of a deal for us is that our server gave me the wrong check and was corrected immediately. I would say the place is great for special occasions either group or a romantic meal for couples. A bit pricey but it's all worth it!

    We had a reservation for 7 people and at the last minute 2 more joined us. The restaurant was very kind in adjusting the table and fitting in our extra guests. They even brought a special dessert when they learned the extra guest had a birthday! We had 5 steaks and 4 seafood entrees. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The seafood eaters all raved about their dinners. We ordered multiple sides and argued among ourselves as to which was best. The were all delicious!

    The food was very good. Steaks cooked just as ordered and very flavorful. Wait staff was very attentive. Calamari appetizer very good, as was the Ahi tuna. The one thing that we all noticed was how loud it was. Would not call it energetic as ntoed in the star rating. It actually made the evening not as nice as it could have been. It was hard to have a nice conversation over a fairly expensive dinner. For that reason would slect a differnt venur where quality of dood was on par the next tiem we go out.

    Porterhouse was fantastic. Reminded me of my hometown Peter Luger's in Brooklyn. The manager , Jaime was very attentive and efficient. A bit noisier than I prefer, but this is usual for this restaurant. However, the quality and flavor of the Porterhouse more than made up for the noise. Would definitely recommend for anyone , stick to the steak as it is their specialty. A memorable dining experience.,!

    We had planned this anniversary night for a long time...and were hoping that Chops would exceed our expectations.....unfortunately...we were dead wrong. The service was awful...had to request bread 3 times before getting some (etc....)....the $59 lobster was way over-cooked...the lyonnaise potatoes were completely fried to a crisp...and were less enjoyable than McDonald's French Fries....the brussels sprouts were tasteless....and the after dinner bread pudding cake...was inedible. I was up half the night with a stomach ache...because of the bad food...and regretting that I had paid almost $130 for a meal that should have cost $100 less....and we still would have been disappointed. Thanks for nothing. :(

    My husband and I just enjoyed a special night out at Chops celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. The food was exceptional and the service was too. My husband ordered steak and baked potato (which we shared). The steak had a delicious crust while being tender and juicy on the inside. I ordered fish served on a bed of arugula. The fish was light and tender. The arugula was surprising with a slight crunch. This was a treat for us and Chops did not disappoint.

    I took my hubby here last weekend to celebrate his 29th birthday. We arrived about 20 minutes after our reservation and not only were they super courteous to us, but they made space for us and we were seated after about a 15 minute wait. Our waiter was AMAZING and very knowledgeable about the menu. For my entree, I mentioned that I wanted to try a fish selection and he recommended the black grouper. It was so flavorful. Some of the best grouper I've ever tried. Everything from the appetizers to desert were delish!

    The service as usual was very good at Chops. Cherelle (and I think Andre) took great care of us. A couple hits and a couple misses on the food. The special watermelon/feta salad and smoked salmon were very good. the veal chop was decent - slightly tough to cut and chew. We were told that they had toffee ice cream and when we ordered it, it ended up being coffee - a bit of a difference. Apparently they never had toffee, but the server misunderstood the flavor. One of our favorites believe it or not is the bread. We love the bread of at this BLRG restaurant.
