    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.

    As soon as you enter the restaurant you are blasted with the smell of natural gas. After the hostess originally ignored our inquiry and we asked to speak to the manager. She spoke to the manager in the back and returned with the explanation. "The water heater sometimes has a problem". "Don't worry, it happens all the time and it's not dangerous". Natural Gas, not dangerous? Seriously, if you can smell it - it's dangerous and very bad. Will not return because of this.

    It was a great experience from start to finish. From the moment I checked in, the maître d' had already set up a nice spot in the restaurant based on my instructions via Open Table. We had a drink at the bar and waited for our out-of-town clients to arrive. The food was exceptional and the service was top notch. We had a very energetic waiter who really took care of us. Being that it was a business dinner, he knew exactly the right time to intervene and ask if we needed anything. I enthusiastically recommend Chops Lobster bar.

    Chops was busy, with each table full upon our arrival. Our reservation was at 8 PM. We were greeted and seated within a reasonable amount of time. Our waiter was friendly and courteous and addressed us by name throughout the evening. The service was excellent, and the waiter made some good food suggestions. The chopped salad was delicious, as was the salmon, chicken and lamb chops. The four people in our party all enjoyed their meals. Feeling quite full, we ended our dinner with some fresh berries and coffee. As always, we all enjoyed our dinner at Chops!

    Hadn't been to the one in Boca Raton so decided basically at last minute. Not a single disappointment. Called by surname the entire time. When someone delivered my 2nd drink to the table, they informed me it was "compliments of the manager". When I inquired as to why, he just said the manager asked me to pick this one up. A minute later the waiter "apologized for the wait of your drink". It was probably 3 minutes and I was in the midst of a conversation and hadn't even noticed.

    This Atlanta based chain is most welcome to S. Florida...the service, ambiance, decor, food, and all that goes into a marvelous dining experience is here. Over the years, we have become "regulars" and the staff is so delightful to be with. FIlet Mignon that melts in your mouth...a dover sold tableside preparation that is superb, killer desserts, and during the summer, the "tasting menu-prix fixe for 3 courses is a perfucet indulgence. Onion soup..amazginly dleicious bread basket, gigantic onion rings the size of dessert plates, and the new carrot offering put it all over the top.

    THE LOBSTER WAS A LITTLE OVERCOOKED SO IT WAS A LITTLE TOO SOFT. WE HAD THE $50 THREE COURSE DINNER. LOBSTERS ARE QUITE INEXPENSIVE RIGHT NOW SO THE LOBSTER COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIGGER AND NOT OVERCOOKED. I DID NOT SAY ANYTHING TO THEM. IT WAS MY FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY AND THEY WERE GOING TO GIVE HER A DESSERT ON THEM BUT DESSERT CAME WITH OUR DINNER SO NOTHING AT ALL WAS DONE. THEY COULD HAVE MADE A LITTLE FUSS AND SENT OVER SOME SINGING WAITERS. EVERYONE ELSE HAD STEAK AND THEY WERE ALL VERY HAPPY WITH THEIR MEAL. IT WAS A LOVELY EVENING.

    This was my first time at this Lobster Bar and it was everything plus more than my visits in Atlanta. The food was excellent, great cocktails and our servers Alexis & Michelle were the best. Both went above and beyond to make sure from the moment we sat down until we left that our experience was great (and both were a lot of fun as well). Alexis was very helpful with the cocktail and food choices and I look forward to my next dining experience at the Lobster Bar.

    I brought my daughter to Chops Lobster Bar for her 18th birthday. I had been there a few years ago and was amazed! Chops is more than incredibly prepared food, service fit for dignitaries and and a nicely appointed dining room, IT IS AN EXPERIENCE. My Daughter works for a steak-house chain in their front of house. She loves their filet.... but this visit has her seeing food differently. I watched her cut into her barrel cut filet, take the first bite and get this look of (remember, she is 18) "OMG, this is like, WOW!" She experienced service like none-other. The staff delivered exactly the experience I wanted to give her all the way down to the decadent birthday dessert. Adults should be equally impressed! VISIT!

    Really like this place, food is always excellent. Short rib ravioli was outstanding. Great $49 value meal. Why they would seat a couple like us next to a large and loud group in a half empty weekday night restaurant is beyond me but made it a bit unpleasant. Should have moved.
