    We truly enjoyed our experience at Cleveland Chop. My boyfriend and I were visiting from St. Louis and had to pick from the numerous options available for dinner. We were very happy with this decision. The food was great but so was the service. Our server Sean was not only attentive and friendly but also gave us great suggestions on things to do while in town. He made our experience.

    My husband and I went to dinner at the "Chop" for our anniversary. We had never been, but looked like a great place after reading all the comments online. We were not disappointed. My husband loved the place and he's not easy to please. (I loved the place as well). Our dinner was fantastic, we loved the historic pictures, and our server was outstanding. She even surprised us with a warm brownie and ice cream at the end our meal. (BTW- her name is Karen). We can't wait to go back again. :)

    Service and overall atmosphere were good, but the food was just OK. Of the three at our table who had beef dishes, all of the meats were under seasoned, while the sides were way over seasoned. The white cheddar mashed were almost so salty as to be inedible. Apps tasted great, we had the sampler, which was the highlight of the evening for all. Of our group of four, none of us said we'd order our meal again, and none of us were particularly interested in coming back any time soon. We all agreed you can get a better tasting steak at your local Longhorn's, especially for the price.

    "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordabl

    High end steak was cooked perfectly but there was gristle with almost every bite, which was disappointing. Dessert was not offered--we had to request it. There were no herbal teas, just one regular decaf tea. The creme brûlée was overly burnt on top. I really expected more from this place.

    Everything was terrific. Our server, Sean is the bomb. Everytime we go in he remembers us (hopefully because we aren't pains). He is efficient and knowledgeable about the product and always friendly and cheerful. Dinner was delicious and they are very accommodating to special requests. As a special surprise, Sean brought out a brownie and ice cream with a candle for our birthday celebration.

    I was visiting Cleveland and came across this place. My friend got the salmon and it was so tender it didn't need to be cut it with a knife. I had the pork chop which was a little tough but still very tasty. If in Cleveland again I would certainly concidering going back. Good food for good price.

    It's was fine. Not more. There is inconsistency in the food level: steak was very good, Sea bass was bad and was returned to the kitchen.Got Ahi Tuna instead that again was great. Than Creme Brule for dessert- was just bad: too sweet, burnt Sugar, heavy and just unprofessional. Disappointing. ( I also mentioned we celebrate a bday when making reservation online- didn't get any special treatment , not even "Congrats!")

    I've been to Cleveland Chop for lunch several times and really liked it. I thought dinner would be a little bit more special. We were there early on a Saturday evening. We ordered the stuffed peppers as an appetizer. Boy were they spicy! That should probably be noted in the description. I wanted a dinner salad before my meal and was told the $5 Caesar Salad was a full size salad. That was disappointing. I had the tenderloin tips which were good but maybe a little rubbery. I was kind of surprised that I wasn't asked how I wanted them prepared. My boyfriend had the cowboy steak which he thought was excellent. We took pumpkin cheesecake home for dessert and ate it alter in the evening. That was really good.

    Was there for dinner and on another day for Brunch. Their special that night which was a 3-course that included a steak; under $40! Their cornbread with jalapeno peppers was tasty. I had the pork chop that was cooked perfectly. My dinner guest had the steak which was good as well. And then the sweet potato or pumpkin cheesecake was excellent. Service was great. Between two people, which included alcohol, the check was under $100 easily. On the other day for Brunch, the check for two people was just under $30. At that time I had their Omelet with goat cheese and mushrooms, along with wheat toast & some fruit. Brunch guest had a skillet with perogies in it. Delicious. Restaurant decor of dark wood trim is beautiful. Strongly Recommend.

    I attended the brunch prior to the Browns game. Reservations were a must. It was crowded but we were able to get our food relatively quickly. There were a lot of options with the brunch. Most of the food we tried was very good and fresh. Sticky rolls, mac &cheese & desserts a must try. We were seated near the bar & it was a congested. If I return I would request a seat away from the bar. The service was good. The only thing that would prevent me from coming back would be the cost. I have gone to other brunches and they give you one non-alcoholic beverage each as part of the brunch cost, not the case here. For 2 people our bill was $70+ (no alcohol, only a coffee and orange juice to drink), once tip was added we spent over $80 for brunch.

    CLE Chop promoted "free trolley night" to The Black Keys concert; couldn't pass up the opportunity. Two friends joining us for the concert and we knew this was the place to go to show them a bit of CLE's foodiness. Great meal, Mary was a fantastic server and the trolley ride was wonderful!! My steak was prepared perfect; the salmon was flaky and tender; the scallops were gorgeous and the short ribs were outstanding.

    Cleveland Chop did not disappoint. I always loved the old Chop House and was sad that it closed. Hearing that it reopened as Cleveland Chop made me want to return as original chef and an assistant manager were part of the new restaurant. Much of the old wonderful menu remained. We all loved our dinners. We had the gnocchi with blackened shrimp...yummy and tender, the Chop House pork chop which was juicy and perfectly done and the chicken picata which was tender and flavorful. The house salads and Caesar Salad were generous and crispy fresh. All in all a wonderful evening with good service and a very knowledgeable server. It made for a wonderful birthday celebration along with a complimentary dessert. We will definitely return!

    Marissa brought over Bud instead of Bud Light after a period of time. We asked for a glass for beer and that took two requests and 20 minutes.we both ordered 12oz rib eye. Mine was delivered rare not medium and the Mrs was another piece of meat with bone and big. Instead of of asking if we would keep, it took 15 minutes to replace. Our daughters side dishes were not correct as well. Very dark except for 5 inches from table light. Had to use light from cell phone. For a $110.00 you would think our experience would have been better. Must have been an off night.

    Went 4 a date nite n we wanted steak. Did a quick google search 4 best cleveland steak houses n the chop house was #1 on the list n rightly so! Best prime rib Ive ever had! Best steak she'd ever had. Waitress was extremely great n even made me a special non pop or sugary drink which was perfect! The place was very nice n u didn't feel uncomfortable if you weren't super dressed up. The prices were very reasonable for the quality n amount of food. That was the biggest 14oz steak I have ever seen, the same with my prime rib! The cheddar mashed were delicious as well. def recommend the chop house 2 every1! W/our 2 meals,n app n 2 glasses of wine it was under 95$ w/out tip. Very reasonable when compared to other steak places around!

    Located in great old warehouse type building with high ceilings. Local decor and pictures on wall. Darker lighting setting but nice quaint little light on tables. Service and food were great. Appetizers of stuffed sausage peppers and calamari were uniquely prepared and excellent. Table had the entrees of Shrimp Gnocchi, Walleye, and Swordfish which were lights out. Nice menu of steaks and chops. Prices not as high as other known steak houses in CLE. Great place to eat!

    Had a business dinner on Monday night. Karen was our server and she was fantastic. The food was outstanding and the quality above average. The overall experience was very satisfying. I had the Executive Filet and it was a perfect medium rare. One of my guests had the Pork Chop special and said it was the best meal he had in Cleveland. All my guests were extremely happy with their meals. The wine list was extensive and the ambience was traditional steakhouse. Great night!

    The French Toast that I saw on the menu online was not on the menu at the restaurant. Also the item that was on the menu I was told was unavailable and the menu had not been updated. service was a little slow and the staff seemed to be busy despite there not being many patrons. I had my leftovers boxed and when I arrived home discovered the fruit was mixed in with the eggs! I was very unhappy with that I hoped they would have put the fruit in a separate container.

    My husband and I ate here for the first time during a visit to Cleveland. The waitress was young and energetic, but under trained. She didn't know the menu and couldn't make recommendations. She did not write down our order and had to come back to ask how we wanted our meals cooked. Mine came cooked perfectly, but my husband's prime rib was extremely over cooked. He'd ordered it rare and what he received had been reheated to medium well. The waitress didn't return for quite some time to check on us, consequently I had to eat my meal alone while my husband waited on her return. When the item was replaced the chef brought it out personally, but made excuses rather than apologize. They did attempt to make up the error on the bill.

    I've been here for casual business lunch on a number of recent occasions. Whether you get a tasty salad or a sandwich, you won't be disappointed. Nothing fancy here, but they do have interesting daily specials and great service. Sandwiches and burgers...especially the Cowboy burger, are very large. Prices are reasonable and the food quality is consistent. Great bar too.
