Diner Reviews
  • "All four of us ordered something different. From pulled pork sandwiches to NY steak and salmon. Food was mediocre. Top sirloin steak was tough. Salmon was good. Pulled pork was dry and the NY was okay, even with the blue cheese and bacon embellishments. Air conditioning system does not work properly. It was 95 degrees outside and 84 in the restaurant (we sat by the thermostat). I couldn't finish meal as I started to sweat. We had to leave. The restaurant stayed pretty empty for a Saturday. For a $30 steak, I think I will spend my money elsewhere and stay cool."

  • "We have been to both Chops several times. Normally the food is excellent with some of the best steaks around. However, this trip, I was disappointed with my NY Steak. It wasn't as tender or tasty as normal, although still good from that perspective. But, it had a large piece of gristle running near one side that was difficult to cut around and reduced the effective size of the steak and the overall dinning experience. Something I would expect at Sizzler bit certainly not from Chops. Will I go back? Yes, I surely will because all past experiences have been wonderful, but another New York like this would be the last."

  • "29th Wedding anniversary dinner. Your staff greeted us and obviously read the note on our reservation. We were warmly greeted by the hostess who wished us a happy anniversary; very nice! Our server also recognized this occasion. He was outstanding; very attentive throughout the dinner, without being intrusive. Potato skins appetizer, great. We split a mixed greens salad which our server thoughtfully provided on two plates. My wife,s filet mignon; nice. My grilled top sirloin; so-so. The topping smothered the taste of the steak. When eaten without the topping, the steak was bland for being grilled. Onion rings, were okay. Our steaks were tender; and the portion size more than filling (we took some home). Dessert was very nice!"

  • "My wife had the Filet Mignon and I had the Lamb Medalions. She said hers was OK but nothing special. Mine was awaful. The mustard sauce overpowered the lamb. Also, the "medalions" did not have the fat trimmed off, which made up half of the serving. Since the sauce had to be scapped off to avoid eating fat, the whole thing rather disgusting. At $40, this was considerably overpriced. Salads were OK but nothing special. Sides of carrots were also OK but nothing special. Wine list is rather limited. Service was OK. Atmosphere is modern industrial - hardly romantic or intimate. We won't go there again."

  • "Used the online reservation system; that worked out great! Visited on a Thur evening for a 6:30 dinner (cuz that's the only day they serve prime rib.) Seated promptly in booth (as requested online) We ordered immediately cuz we were starved. Plates were hot, wife's salmon oscar was hot, but my prime rib wasn't--more like warm, but then again I was famished so I just dove into that delicious meat! Quick service. A detraction was two flies buzzing the table! Aside from the two flies and the fat "butter knife" of a steak knife, it was a very enjoyable dinner; delicious, served fast (as requested.) Eat out mid-week and dinner is just fantastic!"

  • "Outstanding service. Lunch, great food, reasonable prices. We had, grandchildren with us, ages, 7,4 & 1 and they were well received by staff. Lunch prices comparable to most chain restaurants and in my opinion Chops lunch offerings are tastier,ingredients of a higher quality. Service is excellent. This was my third visit for lunch. Great place for special occasion."

  • "Good food. My table of 4 felt the waitress was arrogant and did not listen well. i asked for additional avocado on my salad. My salad arrived with no avocado. when asked, she said i did my job. i cant help if the kitchen cant follow orders. Poor service."

  • "Our food was very good. I chose grilled salmon "Oscar." it was excellent and the vegetables--spinach, carrots, and asparagus--were perfectly cooked. Hubby had filet which was also good, but he ordered a green salad as a side vs. a starch and was surprised that it was served on the same plate as the meat and veggies; it probably should have been brought out first on a separate plate. We sat in a booth and you could look into the kitchen if you so chose. If you didn't want to look, you'd have known they were there from the yakking, laughing, and joking. Not acceptable for a place that is still trying to find its niche in an upscale suburban mall. We had 5:30 rez and there were only three tables of eaters by the time we left. Prices 10-15% hi."

  • "Overall, really disappointed! The atmosphere was appealing, along with the variety of food and wine selections. The wine selection was great, 1869 Zin. The food presentations and quality were average. Example, the garlic fries were no different than regular fries. The bar service could be improved with some personality behind it! For the gourmet meal, my wife ordered filet migon, oscar style and I ordered a crab and artichoke sandwich with a side salad (with ranch). My wife received her entrée as the filet migon only, not oscar style. Also, my side salad arrived with the entrée, only to have blue cheese dressing, not ranch. Both were sent back. The service was slow with an inexperienced waitress with a empty restaurant."

  • "My wife and I got the steak dinner to share for $72. Questioned carefully the server on cooking steak, wanted slightly pink, he recommended medium. Steak was rare. Sent it back, came back medium rare which was ok. Taste and rest of meal was ok but not great value for price."

  • "Food is very pricey and quality was not there. We ordered an appetizer that was 18.00 and the bread served with the dip was hard as a rock. The waiter brought back new bread 10 minutes later with no dip and by then our dip was cold. Manager brought us warm dip after about another 10 minutes. In the end our food tasted mediocre and the service was terrible for being a high priced restaurant. We should have at least been given the appetizer for free after such terrible service but we did not get it. In the end we spent way too much money for poor service and not great food."

  • "Two of us had Braised spare ribs with polenta which were fatty and a bit tough. How does that happen when you braise? The sauce was vinegary. The polenta was solidified, not creamy. The steaks the rest of our party had were one level over done (medium rare was medium) and just ordinary. The grilled artichoke was good. And what's with the weird sundries tomato butter for the bread? Give me same plain butter if you're bread is good. On a Friday night the place was half empty. If you're going to price your menu that high, your food should be better than bland."

  • "First time visit. Bartender Luke was great. Very informative about menu. Restaurant was completely out of any Pork products. Don't understand that. Prices are on the high end for Sacramento and food took 30 minutes to arrive. Good portions. Probably would not go back as there are better values for same food in the area."

  • "my experience was marred only by the attitude of the hostess. I wish I knew her name, but she upset the friend I was meeting. The manager actually was able to help and this made it better."

  • "The hostess and the waitress were great. The waitress was very knowledgable about the menu. My dining companion and I both selected the filet mignon. The servings were generous, but there was nothing special about the taste. The glazed carrots were good. We want to try brunch there, but we won't be going back for a steak dinner."

  • "Our family attended the Easter Brunch and the buffet was horrible! All the meats were dried out and the buffet menu items were not being replaced in a timely manner. The fruit and dessert bar were tired with and looked day old. The salmon was overcooked and the serving utensils were not sanitary. The omelet station was all butter and the carving station meats were dried out and tough. Overall, our visit was disappointing. We thought CHOPS would be a nice treat but we were very disappointed. It is doubtful we would ever eat at CHOPs again."

  • "Was my hubby's bday, so we tried this as a new place. Appetizer served late -- came along with the meal -- and since it was not hot, I suspect it waited for a server rather than that it was not made right away. It was crab cakes that were pretty good, but not the best, and might have been better hotter. Had a sirloin cooked med rare that was so chewy that it shook the whole table to cut it. Topped with carmelized onions that were gloppy and wet. So unappetizing. Brussel sprouts side dish was tasty, but the sprouts were undercooked -- I like veg dishes crisp, but these were mostly raw. Overall a disappointment given the rep of this restaurant -- so was glad to try it, but would not go back."

  • "I was really excited to try Chops brunch on Easter Day for the first time...arrived at 1:30 starving. Walked in to find a staff that clearly didn't want to be there. All hot food was cold. Had to wait about 10 minutes for more food to come out (most of the trays were empty). "Carving station" was a joke. Save your money & just go to home town Buffett for 10 bucks. At least you're getting what you pay for at hometown Buffett. P.S. Gnats flying around your table are free though. "

  • "The ambience was very nice and the booths are a great idea. Our booth was not very comfortable though, lots of seat sag. The top sirloin was a disappointment but the scallops and pasta was very good. Good carrot cake overall but a bit over sweetened."

  • "Olivia and I made a reservation via Open Table since its free, quick and easy. At Happy Hour, Olivia chose the potato skins and I chose the spinach stuffed mushrooms. They were both excellent. Since I am disabled and use a rollator, it was nice to know that I was able to navigate between the tables and booths. Olivia chose the filet mignon dinner, spinach salad and sauteed mushrooms. The beef is aged and I recommend choosing medium over medium well. Olivia said the the filet said it was delicious and tender. . I chose the shrimp scampi and the scallop fettuccine, I preferred the scallop fettuccine which were large, sweet and tender. All in all, we enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the Happy Hour."

  • "Reservations were at 7:00 PM and we were finally seated at 8:00 PM. It was obvious that they forgot about us in the bar area. The manager was very apologetic and offered a free appetizer which was appreciated. Filets were good but also took a long time to come out. Service was outstanding!! Thank goodness we didn't have a movie planned with dinner."

  • "Terrible service. Our dinner order was incorrect. One order was sent back, then replaced with it overcooked, so that persone only are her mash potatoes and vegetables. The other order was delivered without the added toppings. Had a hard time getting the manager or our waitresses attention. For what it cost not worth the money. Will not be going there again."

  • "I ordered the Filet, which was to come with a baked potato encrusted in salt. The baked potato was not encrusted with salt and in fact appeared to be microwaved. Also, the Filet was way more grissly than I expected and lacked flavor. Given the price paid, I was very disappointed. Server was very friendly."

  • "This is not our first experience at Chops Folsom. After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant to return even though I had my Living Social voucher. Arrived early to have Happy Hour outside, although rain was expected patio was open ( sans the chair pads). Randy was our server and was so pleasant and friendly. I had made reservations with Open Table the prior day for dinner at 5:30 pm. Still enjoying sitting outside and knowing we were not going to make our reservation, we asked Randy if we could be seated in his area when we were done. Our dinner was great and our service was over the top! We will return without a doubt."

Not much of a dress code. Nearby diners were wearing cutoffs and flop flops. Overall an OK experience but it doesn't rise to a place for a special occasion"

  • "WE tried a different spot than our normal area and unfortunately Chops didn't quite make the cut for us. The porterhouse was quite tasty and luckily I had plenty to share (28 oz.) with my wife whose New York was well overcooked. Loud birthday group came in right before entrée to seal the deal. Couldn't get out of there quick enough. Waiter and manager did step up and credited us for my wife's meal. More casual then I was expecting for the Palladium."

  • "My wife & I used our Living Social voucher; $69, 3-course dinner for two. Atmosphere was very nice, and being seated near one of their multiple fireplacess was great! Overall service was good but not great. Some of the folks assisting the wait staff need a little more training and we had to ask for water a few times. (Due to the drought, right?) Well, our dinner was pretty good, especially for the price! Both salads offered were above average as were both entree choices. I had the rib eye steak (cooked perfectly to med/reare) and my wife had the swordfish over risotto, also very good! Dessert was a choc layer cake (okay) and the wine included was a Meridian cab or chard. Nothing special there, but for $69 for two, you couldn't beat it!"
