Diner Reviews
  • "Well, what can I tell ya....the restaurant is a very hi-end venue and in the gorgeous area, however you would expect an outstanding food for this highly overrated restaurant. It is very similar to The Capital Grille ...it is by far better in the food department as well as an ambiance and everthing else for that matter. My Delmonico steak was mediocre, my husbands "seafood platter" was also below expectation for the amount of money they charge, my nieces crab cakes were dry and very unappetizing, the appetizer platter that was $55 had more ice that the actual seafood....so think again going there and spend this kind of money for a mediocre food....not worth it!

  • "Good gazpacho, truffle fries, peppercorn filet mignon. Bad noise level-especially from some rude neighboring patrons with VERY loud children, clams casino (were they a joke? 4 of the smallest I've ever seen). Would give it another try sometime. Had heard good things from friends."

  • "Lots of big tables and very busy and incredibly noisy. Just two of us and almost impossible to hear yourself think. Had to request another table after being seated and waiter was not particularly helpful. Food was very good but not the place for a nice quiet evening for two"

  • "First and foremost, we find the food is always top notch with much on the menu to choose from. During the week, the $49 special cannot be matched. Secondly, there is the outstanding service. It enhances the food and makes the overall presentation outstanding. We only wish the noise level could be less."

  • "4 of us ordered Dover sole (a la carte);Hubby's sole was a bit overcooked. I specifically asked that side order of asparagus be cooked soft; they were rec'd still very crisp. Waiter whisked them away, brought back cooked more to what originally requested. Small portion of broccoli that was plated was also too undercooked for our taste. Unfortunately this night, because of Passover/Easter holiday week, loaded with kids and very noisy. But we had a nice time. We didn't order dessert, but when I made reservations, pointed that 2 in our party were celebrating birthdays (hubby's 80th) and they brought 2 tulips with berries/ice cream (NOT complimentary!), but it was a nice touch and quite tasty, perfect ending to a good meal.

  • "This is certainly not an "eatery".........the wonderful seafood (fresh shrimp cocktail) and amazingly prepared steaks make for a wonderful dining experience. Well trained, most accommodating staff. Delicious appetizers, amazing cheesecake (what a way to end a delicious meal!) 2 different dining areas to choose from, besides the bar..we love the tin ceiling lobster bar, with its rooms banquettes."

  • "This was our first time here and wont be the last. We began our evening at the bar for a drink. We were greeted by the bartender Chrissy who was so friendly and attentive. There was a two piece Band at the bar that was very good. I was impressed when I saw one of the managers come over to them and asked them to lower the volume as it would bother customers who were dining. I was We were able to have great conversations at the table without raising our voices. Excellent lobster, and the steaks were better than our NewYork steak houses. Service was outstanding. The waitress (her middle name Emily)was attentive,very friendly, and gave excellent suggestions. Great experience."

  • "Dined here many times. Food is great. Service staff is professional, attentive and knowledgeable. The general manager runs a well-run restaurant. One problem - the Maitre d' got into a screaming match with one of my guests. I acknowledge that my guest initiated it and can be very aggressive, but the Maitre d' made the matter much worse. He claims that he never disagrees with a customer, but he did a great job of disagreeing and matched my guest's decibel level. Not a very pleasant end to a wonderful meal."

  • "We arrived early to enjoy happy hour and then enjoyed the 3 course $49 dinner, tithe food was just ok, had to send steak back overlooked . The servers repeatedly came to the table , not to ask how we were doing but to take plates away , which was very annoying. Also there was a difficult time with check and paying the balance with the ultimate card and not getting it back??! Other times it has been very enjoyable."

  • "Probably not a fair critique because my guest send I are primarily fish eaters and this is essentially a steakhouse. Nevertheless, the fish dishes all have spectacular descriptions but the dishes we ordered were only ok. Sounded better than they tasted. Some waitstaff was very attentive; ours was not. Most disturbing was an attempted slight of hand on the wine vintage. Brought a different vintage on a $100+ wine than listed on the wine list. Told that they print not all vintages may be available. Tell me that before bringing over the bottle, acting as if it was the vintage listed and then make no adjustment on the price. Really? Just be forthright and do the right thing. Amateur move and insulting. Too many other better choices in town"

  • "We are connoisseurs of fine steak houses, and are long time fans of Morton's. For a change, for my wife's birthday, we visited Chops Lobster Bar in Boca Raton. We had a great time. Friendly, attentive wait staff, delicious appetizers (of note were the escargots with individual puff pastries) the steaks were prepared perfectly, and the cold water lobster tail was moist and sweet. The lobster Mac n cheese is not to be missed. The wine list was inclusive and surprisingly reasonable for a place of this level This place hit all the high point of a great steak house meal. We will be back!"

  • "Visually interesting restaurant, excellent service, fine food and drink. Lovely meal. Shrimp cocktail appetizer was as expected, but the lump crab cocktail was extraordinary, the sauces served with it could be more interesting . Steaks were cooked and seasoned to a perfect medium rare, as ordered. The broccoli was streamed just the right amount and was not too hard, not too soft, just right. Next time we eat here we will try something other than the Lyonnaise potatoes; while they were tasty, we would want to try one of there other potato selection, such as garlic mashed or hash brown. Capping the meal off: a dense, not overly sweet bread pudding served with small scoops of vanilla ice cream and homemade whipped cream and vanilla sauce."

  • "I believe this was my 6th year dining at Chops Lobster Bar. I don't live in the area and I am not a regular, but I manage to dine here once or twice a year. Every time I have received such a high level of attention and respect that I feel like a VIP. Every dish has been perfection, the quality, combination of ingredients, all perfectly prepared, and beautifully presented. Definitely a priority to dine here when visiting Boca Raton."

  • "Our head server was distracted by showing another table her photos on her phone. Her back up server actually paid attention to us. My husband ordered the Kobe A5 steak at $89 and it was no better then most steaks ordered at other places at a fraction of the cost. No one came over to check to see if it was cooked to order which it wasn't and by the time someone came by too late to send back. I had the lobster stuffed lobster which was okay. Oysters on the half shell that my husband ordered was very good he said. Overall for a $250 dinner was very disappointed and for our first time there will not be going back anytime soon."

  • "We went with great expectations for a great birthday meeting, instead we were very disappointed - poor service, mediocre food. It took 45 minutes to get our entrees and then they were cold and the steaks overcooked, and not very good. The waiter also forgot one of the desserts. They didn't charge for one of the cold sides we told him about , but didnt offer to do anything about the overcooked steaks. All in all very disappointing and no plans to return."

WE were told that there's a prix fixe menu from Sunday - Thursday that included a number of great choices and half of us ordered it. Now we hope another three years don't pass before we return."
