    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!

    ordered lobster on the $49 menu. It was supposed to be 1.5 lbs. it was much smaller. I made a comment and was brought a second lobster in addition to my first. They made sure I was happy. The bar is very noisy and it carries over into the dinning area.

    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.

    I ordered the calamari app, it had a wonderful taste but I found an odd squiggly piece of metal on the nearly empty plate. The waiter and manager seemed to think it was part of a scouring pad that may have been lodged in the fryer basket. They took the charge off but honestly they didn't act too concerned. Lost my appetite and did not order an entree. I was really shocked at their responses. For the price and loud dining room, I will likely go to another place next time in town.

    Everything we ordered on the menu was delicious and plated well. But it was a special night for us to try a place we heard years about and never got the chance to drive over to dine. But throughout the lovely dining experience the AC was not working properly and it was very uncomfortable. I felt that in a place like this the AC would get fixed asap. If we do make plans to go back there again. We definitely would check on the air conditioner before being seated, if not we always will enjoy dining else where.

    Wonderful high quality ingredients & everything but their premier TRIPLE PORTERHOUSE prepared to perfection. Wanted a pink tinged crisp outside steak, but got a blood raw. Sent it back not once, not twice but three times & still was just medium rare. Each time just passed through the kitchen for a few seconds before being retuned to our table. Manager admitted that they always undercook to the order intentionally, but who knew! Continued to insist that their way was correct and that I did not how to order or EAT their food. Only eating & cooking for 70 years! Waiter abandoned responsibility. Should check preparation was as ordered before serving. We specified color & texture, (above), not something generic like just past medium.

    I have been dining at Chops in both Georgia and Boca Raton for many years now. The level of service and the quality of food are top notch. The menu is extensive and can accommodate all ages. On my most recent visit I dined with my wife and 2 children ages 12 and 10 who love the young diners menu. Just go and enjoy yourself. It is one of the few local high end restaurants that offer the Bone-in Filet and also dare to lightly pan fry a huge Lobster Tail.

    We have enjoyed Chops many times. We celebrated my birthday and our wedding anniversary that night. We were just finishing our first course when the main course arrived ! It was too fast, so we sent it back. The good news is that management apologized for the poor service , which was the fault of the kitchen, not our waiter. We were treated to dinner by the manager , with his apology. That was a very professional manner to insure that we were appreciated as customers and that we shall return!

(Most surprising for such as upscale eatery on a Friday night) Filet mignon was as perfect as always, (all steaks were superb).side dishes of mushrooms, onion rings were superb. SPectacular Cheesecake-incredible size portions. Great welcome from the staff and management compete a delightful evening.
