  • Open Table Issue
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/13/2014
    The restaurant called me a day before my reservation to cancel it due a fire in their kitchen. Trying to book a replacement reservation through Open Table became a major issue. Your website keep telling me to contact the restaurant to cancel my reservation. Your website would not allow me to book another reservation because my original reservation is still active. I ended up making reservations outside of Open Table. I hope you'll fix this problem.

    We, my husband and I, went here as our first stop for Restaurant Week. Each course was amazing. The wine list was extensive and impressive. We enjoyed ourselves. We only spent a total of $120, which was a pretty good deal for the caliber of food and service. We will be coming back.

    My husband and I went to the Chop House for the preview period of Restaurant Week and our 34th wedding anniversary. The great service started with one of the managers stopping by to introduce herself. She checked on us throughout the meal. The food was great. My husband had an appetizer of steak tartar and I had cucumber gazpacho, both great choices. For our main course I had Prime Rib and my husband had a Pork Chop, both beautifully presented and very flavorful. We ended with chocolate lava cake and espresso brûlée, delicious! Thanks for a great evening!

    Great food overall, except for the desserts that were lacking the refinement and good flavor of the rest of the plates. The waiter seemed reluctant to offer and serve the special Restaurant Weekend Prix Fixe, so we had to ask it and his reaction was quite unpleasant.

    We were not terribly hungry so we ordered the lobster bisque, Italian wedge and the cheese tray to share between the two of us. The cheese tray was not appetizing at all. The bread had garlic butter on it that was overpowering. The prosciutto was sliced too thick. On a positive note, the bisque and wedge were fabulous!

    I have been to this place many times but the experience on 7/3 left a sour taste. The servers and staff just did not seem interested in working that evening. The food is excellent so I cannot ding them for that but the staffs lack of attentiveness cannot be forgiven and forgotten that easily. The restaurant cut staff early since it was not busy and I felt rushed.

    The service was excellent and we had a very attentive, knowledgable server. My husband and I both ordered steak - he had the ribeye and I had the filet. We were expecting melt in your mouth, super tender steak and instead it was tough and lacking flavor. For the price, I would honestly not go back. I would instead choose to go buy my steak at whole foods and cook it at home. Nice place overall, very friendly staff, romantic place to dine on a special occasion. Steak is overrated and overpriced.

    Food, service, wine list were all excellent. My husband and I both had the 8oz filet each of which was cooked perfectly. I had the Oscar style and he had the Au poirve. We were both in heaven. The sides we shared were also wonderful - roasted brussel sprouts and steak fries. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience and we both recommend DCH.

    Pretty doggone tasty experience. If I hadn't gone to Perry's steakhouse the next day I would've been a great experience now I would have to say it's very good. Since it's near some of the hotel I frequent women town I would have to say that I would go back and will enjoy it. Girlfriend had steak I had the baked chicken and it was all very tasty. The crème brûlée for dessert was very tasty. Again, a very solid dining experience and I would strongly recommend.

    I live in Chicago, but have had 3 occassions to be in Dallas in the past year. The Dallas Chop House was recommended to me for a special evening and it was perfect. I returned with other guests a second time and just this past Saturday night had a celebration dinner with the new President of our Association, his wife, the program chairman and our meeting planner and me. As in the previous two occasions, the service, ambience, and food were outstanding. I love your wine list and was able to introduce my guests to one of my favorite Cabs, which they had never had before, but took photos of the bottle to be able to buy it for themselves at a later date. A large, noisy party came in just as we left, so was glad we were leaving.

    We were a large group but they handled it perfectly. They gave great recommendations, handled a miscooked steak by recoiling it and taking it off the bill and were super attentive. The steaks were great as was the meat/cheese plate appetizer we had. The sides are smaller than typical steakhouse sides and are more large single servings that big servings meant to share.

    We were having a baby shower for a small office group of 8. I made a reservation for lunch on line and was pleased when we arrived to be in a separate room where we could hear each other talk and enjoy the moment. Service was attentive but not overly so and food was good. Overall a great experience.

    Dallas Chop House is outstanding. They have several wonderful appetizers. I especially like the Hawaiian Bigeye tuna and the steak tartare. Their steaks are superb and cooked to perfection. Other favorites are the brussels sprouts and the spicy crawfish side was amazing as well if you like spicy food. The service, wine selection and cocktails were also very good. It was a great great experience and I highly recommend it.

    Getting downtown can be a bit tricky with all the road construction. Once inside, several choices for dining rooms. Go for a small, quiet room, otherwise the bar noise makes it difficult to visit. Don't trust the sample menu on Opentable; it doesn't match with what restaurant currently is offering. Steaks were OK but nothing special. The best thing was the wine list - it was not overpriced. Large portions for the vegetable side dishes. Glad I went but won't be going back; there are better steak houses in Dallas.

    I was very impressed with the look and feel of the Dallas Chophouse when we arrived for our lunch. However, the food left something to be desired. My salmon was severely undercooked to the point where I couldn't eat it, and my colleagues steak was chewy. Despite the nice ambiance, I was underwhelmed by the food. I probably will not revisit this place, as there are much better steakhouses in the area.

    We had a party of 6, received mediocre service and at the end discovered an automatic 20% gratuity - if it was posted on the menu or any other place - I certainly did not see it, but it explains the service, The food was overpriced, but very good, I don't see myself ever going back, there are too many great places that have the service to match.

    Service was amazingly slow. Once everyone was served but one, it was a good five minutes before the last diner was served. We had so many different people wait on us, we had no idea who to speak with. Then our desserts were all wrong. What was presented to us as Sorbet was Vanilla Ice Cream. They continued to say the "kitchen" assures us it is Sorbet. Not right. You can call it that but it was not Sorbet. The price is too high for the quality. And its so loud in there you can't even hear the person next to you. I will not go back.

    kept making excuses for their shortcomings each time we went, but enough is enough. Way too expensive for what you get. (GEE, I MISS CHARLIE PALMER'S!!!) Rosemary was in and on everything without warning, from the butter to the baked garlic to the steak sauce to the vegetables. so if you don't like rosemary, just that one thing ruins even the best steak. And then there was the steady murmur of someone giving a speech that was coming from the wall beside me that the staff said they couldn't hear and didn't even try to find or stop it. It's really convenient for us, but way too much money to spend and leave irritated everytime.

    I work in the Comerica building and eat Lunch at the Chophouse regularly. But was disappointed in the dinner service. It was extremely loud. The brussel sprouts were tough and tasteless. I thought the asparagus was something one could get at an inexpensive restaurant. The Caesar salad dressing is very fishy and did not taste like any other Caesar salad I have had. My out of town guest had a steak that she said was fine. For the prices at the Chophouse at dinner, I will probably not return for dinner. Unusual sinec their lunch menu is generally good value and tastes good.

    Had dinner at 5:30 party of 2. Sitting was "tight" many open tables we were placed next to party of 8. Another table had several people just come in for dinner with "Biker shorts and tee shirts" on. Server was good. Had good expalination. Drinks were slow in getting to table. Asked for on the rocks..no ice in drink was told they must have melted, but they were in the glass. Menu was nothing special. Lobster bisque was sweet made with ginger was not a fan. Steak was 21 day old dry aged was not inpressed. Only 4 desserts on menu portion was very small for price. We should have just went to Papa Brothers.
