    From start to finish Chops was the best. My Filet was cooked perfectly and very tender, the Dover Sole was light and delicate, and the lobster in lobster was to die for. Service was terrific. Not the cheapest place in town but well worth the money and cheaper than its peers.

    For the price and promise of the restaurant, I was disappointed in both the quality of food and service. The prix fixe menu has some nice looking choices, and the Caesar salad with poached egg was nice. The entree 12oz New York was barely 9oz, and not very tender. The almond tuile dessert was just ok. Our lead server was neither friendly nor competent. After having been there for 20 min, and our menus closed for 10, we overheard him tell another server that we were not ready to order yet. Fortunately his backup team were attentive and personable.

    I had heard many good things about Chops and was anxious to try it. Our waiter was very good and the place is beautiful, but the food was average and definitely not worth the price. I was disappointed, and sorry to say I have no interest in going back. With so many great restaurants in the Boca/Delray area, you're better off spending your time and money elsewhere.

    Great food. Delicious. Service was very good too with very attentive staff. Hostess was a little indifferent and did not provide a pleasant greeting. Did not even make eye contact. Only thing I would really change is how close the tables were to each other. It gives you the feeling that you are eating on top of or with the neighboring tables. If you are in a booth, it's much better. Sitting at a table takes away from the cozy, intimate atmosphere.

    The amazing lobster Mac N Cheese was the best I ever are. There were 7 of us and everything ordered came out perfectly cooked.mist of us ordered the three course dinner. So many great choices. I had the chops salad, surf n turf, and the berries. It was so tasty. The waiters were very professional as were the bartenders. Overall best restaurant in Boca!!

    Watch the portion sizes. I ordered the South African lobster tail that was supposed to be 12 ounces. It looked like they cut off half the tail. The first time this happened I didn't want to make a fuss do I did not complain. I went Sunday night and again a tail less than 12 ounces. I brought it to the waiters attention and he agreed and the manager comped a second tail. I was happy they made it right!

    I have dined at Chops in the past and tonight was disappointing. The food was just OK. The server was non attentive and did not try to fulfil our requests until we pushed. Overall, tonight was not consistent with past experiences, particularly since it was a Monday night and they were not that busy.

    Chops is outstanding in every aspect from the first hello to the car valet pick-up. I was recently there for a business dinner with an out of town guest. The service and food could not have been better-deluxe all the way. Great ambiance and people watching yet able to hear each other in conversation. In a town of fantastic steak/seafood restaurants-Chops is my go-to choice!

    I booked Chops for my Dad's 90th birthday celebration. There were 8 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. Although the dinner selections tend to be pricey, I was able to order a petite filet for only $29. There was a prix fix 3 course dinner for $49 that most of our party chose. The steaks were delectable and the desserts were amazing. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. Service was impeccable and the staff was very kind. I ordered my birthday cake from the French bakery across the street recommended by Chops. The bakery is Cote France and the chef there created a wonderful, delicious chocolate moose cake for us. Overall it was a great night at Chops.

    Although the food was definitely high quality we were quite disappointed with our steaks. I ordered the peppered filet tips and all you could taste was pepper. My husband ordered the ribeye. Again great quality but we wanted to take it home and cook it ourselves. There was NO flavor. The potatoes confit didn't even taste like they were salted. Everything was BLAND! Our service was superb! The lobster was cooked perfectly and the escargot was delicious as were the oysters. If you're going to go I would suggest seafood only. I don't mind spending money on good food but I would never again spend over $200 for a dinner here. There are too many other nice restaurants out there. The steaks at Ruth's Chris are SO much better!

    Chops Lobster Bar is the best place in Boca for a good ribeye steak. I shared a steak, creamed spinach, crispy onions and a baked potato with a friend. All was delicious - and plenty big enough for 2 light eaters. For dessert, we shared the white chocolate banana cream pie - yummy! The wine list was great, and the appetizer we chose (oysters) adequate. The service was perfect - I did not feel rushed, but the server was there the minute we needed something.

    We decided to visit Chops after several years. The problem then was the service and the noise level. The food was great and still is. The problem is still the service and noise level. If you do not want to talk, go for the food. The only part of the food I did not like was the service of the bread. That was served on a plain white plate-poor presentation. A basket would have been nicer.

    I took a friend to Chops to celebrate her 50th birthday. Although I did not notify the restaurant in advance about her birthday, when I arrived, the host asked me if I was there for the birthday party. I said "yes, but probably not the party he meant". The restaurant comped us a fabulous dessert with candle, which was totally unexpected. Dinner was delicious. Had the twin peppercorn filets. Would definitely order them again.

    Went for my birthday which I had filled in on my reservation. The hostesses and our waitress wished my a happy birthday. We shared a rib eye, chopped salad and lobster mac & cheese, all excellent choices and more than enough for two. The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection. We said no to dessert, but our waitress brought out a slice of key lime pie with a lit candle on it (and thankfully no singers). That was not charged to us. Must admit, the pie was excellent. I would highly recommend this. Personally liked the food and the ambiance better than the other local steak houses in the area.
