Chops Lobster Bar - Boca Raton
Good Food Service needs improvementWe were 5 for dinner. The waiter was friendly and explained each of the specials and was familiar with how the dishes were prepared. He answered all of our questions.
Each of us ordered different dishes and everyone was very pleased with both the taste and presentation. Although 2 of us ordered lobster only one was given drawn butter which was not correct.
Service was somewhat slow (dinner took 3 hours). I had to wave down the waiter to get some more coffee which should have been offered without hesitation. I also did notice that 3 waiters were standing around chatting with each other for longer than they should rather than attending to their tables.
All in all, the food was excellent but the service could use improvement.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfectWe were seated promptly; not rushed by the wait staff. Our waiter, Brett, told us his favorites and suggested some other items. He was very attentive throughout the meal. From appetizers to dessert, everything was perfect. Oh, and the food - fantastic!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceThe only negative to me was that every time our wine glasses needed to be refilled, our server was no where to be found. I always believed that a guest should never have to fill their own wine glass. Old school perhaps, but it matters to me.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak!We had the Porterhouse for 2 and it was sensational. Cooked to perfection and delicious! The lobster mac and cheese was a bit rich and the hashbrowns were wonderful. The service was excellent, attentive and friendly. The front desk was efficient and nice when we came in and our table was ready at the time of our reservation. The banana cream pie was a bit too sweet and that would be the only minor thing to mention. Overall an excellent evening with perfect food!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful optionsI have been to Chops twice the food there was very good last time I had lobster stuffed lobster and this time I had black peppercorn steak . They make a flash fried lobster tail which is very different but tastes great. Their cheesecake is the best I've ever tasted and I love cheesecake!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDeeelish Birthday Dinner!Fabulous birthday dinner for my husband! This is his favorite place and once again it didn't disappoint!
The flash fried lobster appetizer is to die for and do not miss the raisin pumpernickel bread! The waiters are
just so so unless you luck out with a great one.
Would highly recommend6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMShady ValetsThe food was good except they overcooked my steak, the waiter was great, the hostess was very nice, the valets were worthless, you want to whole picture well here it is. They couldnt call a cab for us and when our cab showed up twenty minutes later the valet tried to give it away. I would go but not it your bringing a group from out of town. I was told one of the other groups paid the valets to take them back to the resort, didnt know valets would drive a range rover, but maybe I'm being presumptious. I hope you know french because the valets dont speak english.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent andService was excellent and very professional. Enjoyed our meal. However, table was way to big for two people which made our experience less than perfect.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, food & ambianceHave dined at Chops many times before. This time brought a group of friends to celebrate multiple life events. We had a great time and my friends thoroughly enjoyed the evening?6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough the service was outstandinAlthough the service was outstanding and side dishes were good, my filet was just OK - not much taste, but a good cut of steak.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerAfter celebrating my first anniversary at Chops, I have to say I will be spending every future anniversary dinner at this fine establishment. After requesting the same table where my wife and I enjoyed dinner almost two years ago on the night that I proposed, the staff treated us to one of our best dining experiences. The service and attention to detail exceeded my expectations and the food was equally as amazing. Needless to say, my wife and I will spend every future anniversary celebrating with the wonderful people at Chops. Thanks again!!
David K.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food but Service SlippingBeen to Chops 6 times over several years and the food has always been excellent. The service was always outstanding except for my last visit. The waiters looked harried, overworked and unhappy to be there. No one offered to refill our empty wine or water glasses. It took 20 minutes for our waiter to take our food order and 30 minutes for bread to arrive. I hope that this is not the usual experience, or that management is trying to cut expenses by giving waiters too many tables. There is a three course prix fixe menu at $49 with some upcharges for Lobster or Dover Sole, but a good value. The wine list is large and varied with mark-ups ranging from 2-3 times retail. We're seafood/shellfish people, so we love the lobster, clams, oysters.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DiningWe tried the restaurant for the first time and were very pleased with our experience. The staff was not typical stuffy Boca. Professional but personable. I dislike snobby restaurants. I would definitely choose over Mortons or Ruth Chris. The food was excellent and I liked the lobster.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great RestaurantThe food and service was the best I seen in the past 25 years I lived in Florida.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, food, ambience..The service was excellent. outstanding actually and the food was delic, ambience great. Excellent experiece and date night5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date nightWe had previously been to chops and it was not very enjoyable so we had not returned. We had gotten a gift card as a present and decided to give it a second chance. Total turnaround....the food was so much better than the previous time. We sat in the lounge area and had Terrence as our server. He was awesome....very helpful with the menu and portion sizes. He went above and beyond to help us in having a special date night. We will DEF return :)5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMfairWe were 6 celebrating a birthday. The food was only fair. Very disapponted - we ate here a few years ago and was great.
One friend had steak - very tough. The lobster was not great - chewey. Creamed spinach was great. Escargot was awful.
Will not return.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad to Have Gone BackWe had not been back in a year, but definitely will be back much sooner and make it part of our "go to places."
Everything from the check in, to the bar to the service and food seemed it has taken it up a notch.
Keep up it up and they will have a loyal customer.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Chops is probably the best restaurant in Boca.

Although we were not big drinkers or last of the big time spenders the waiter was just wonderful. The young man made us feel important. It was all very nice but the waiter was special.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMChops has the most deliciousChops has the most delicious food plus outstanding service - only problem is it is too loud and impossible to hear whomever you are eatiing with or the server without shouting.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery special place. Great RestauranChops Lobster is one of our favorites in Boca. If we have any special occasion or not...its our favorite place to go. The Bar is fantastic, noisier of course than the main restaurant,but fun. Great band playing always (we even dance a little at their music) the people that work there are all friendly and very professionals.
Robert, in charge of the Receptionists and reservations and tables, is an amazing, friendly professional. Give him a 10.

Don't go there unless you want a superior meal and are willing to pay for it. It was my first visit and, although I won't eat there regularly, it will be high on my list of places to celebrate a special occasion. The only other restaurant in the Boca Raton market that is comparable is the Gazebo.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but deliciousTheir porterhouse steak was fabulous and cooked just to our specifications. Their bread was delicious. Was not crazy about their salad dressing with blue cheese, but everything else so terrific. The tables are spaced apart from each other which you do not find so often anymore. We had a very enjoyable dinner and will return for other special occasions as the restaurant is a bit pricey.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great One Of The BEstAlways Great One Of The BEst RestaurantS In Florida4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Chops and eat thereWe love Chops and eat there regularly.

We decided to sit at one of the fabulous booths in the bar area as to take in all the action. Our servers were attentive, but didn't quite get that we wanted to order dinner there, so it took some doing to get menus to our table. Once that was established, we ordered and were very pleased with our selections of petite filet, brussel sprouts, seared ahi tuna (though I don't think they should have served them on a mound of mashed potatoes!), crab cake - INCREDIBLE! Definitely a place to make repeat visits to!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI wanted to surprise my husbandI wanted to surprise my husband and I did! He loved it. The filet and lobster are out of this world!

Wanted oysters...disappointed that they ran out at 7:45.
Steak pretty good...not fantastic. Ordered large sides and they seemed like a small sized side compared to other steak houses.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a nice experience. WhenHad a nice experience. When I made my reservation, I just noted in the notes category that it was our anniversary and even though we did not order dessert (We were stuffed), we were given a dessert with candles for our Anniversary. It was a very nice touch.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery attentive servers, greatVery attentive servers, great quality food but crowded and somewhat noisy.

Everyone is smiling when we are at Chops. No other place compares.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visitor. I feltFirst time visitor. I felt a little rushed. I wanted to order just the appetizers but the server wanted us to place our entire order. Not a huge deal but not something I like to do. There was very little break between courses. The food was good. I had the swordfish and it was very good. I tried to order it less the potatoes and the server said it was part of the entrée. When it arrived, it had 2 disks of potato which could have been left off my plate without a problem. I did not eat them. Wife had the lamp chop and she said it was good. Overall it was good and I would dine here again.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom beginning to end ourexperienceFrom beginning to end ourexperience

My wife had lamb chops , I had the bone in rib eye. Both were prepared exactly as we ordered The well done hash browns and baked potatoe were perfect .
For desert , the best cheese cake we have ever had .
CHOPS is always an outstanding dining experience.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI thought all the food wasI thought all the food was excellent. They did get my wife's steak order wrong, but it was inconsequential.
I would recommend that they upgrade their vanilla ice cream.
We had a lovely Easter Dinner.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
