    My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Novi Chop House. I made the reservation on Open Table and requested a more private table as it was our anniversary. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and our table was perfect. We ordered dessert and anxiously waited for the creme brulee. When the server brought it out there was a candle on it and hand written in chocolate it said happy anniversary. What an amazing touch to a beautiful evening.

    My friend and I take each other out for our birthdays to fine restaurants in the Metro area. We have been doing this for about 20 years. NoVI Chop House was our latest and we were very satisfied. Our waiter Eric was top notch, very professional and friendly. The food was magnificent. We had the 6 Oz filet, and the mac and cheese. The Ambiance was exactly as we preferred, muted lighting with enough soft music and ambient chatter to drown out our laughter. Worth every penny. We will be back for one of their special dining experiences that they advertised.

    My wife and I always enjoy dining here. The food is always delicious and prepared well. One extremely important highlight of dining at the Novi Chophouse is the attentive and friendly level of service provided by the staff. Particularly noteworthy and deserving of praise is our waiter, Brent. Brent is the ultimate professional with the most friendly demeanor and knowledge of the Chophouse menu. He makes you feel welcome and special and is one of the key reasons we return to the Chophouse time and again. He is genuinely concerned and performs responsibly to ensure that you receive not only great food, but have an overall enjoyable experience. This level of exceptional service has rapidly becoming a lost art and is most appreciated!

    I was surprised on a Saturday night that there was no free valet service as specified in the listing although parking was not a problem. The food was excellent albeit pricey and the ambience was nearly perfect for a 'date night' except there were a couple very loud people close by. Not sure why some cannot control their voice level in a nice restaurant. Anyway not the fault of the restaurant.

    We went to celebrate our anniversary with our son because our sitter had cancelled. We hadn't been in a few years because our prior experience wasn't that positive. We decided to try it again and had a positive experience. Crab cakes appetizer was delicious, crab legs were good but cold when they arrived, beef Wellington was excellent. Our server was attentive and helpful in deciding what to order.

We recommend calamari for an appetizer and Brussels for your side! House salad tastes best with their blue cheese dressing!

    Both ordered pepper cowboy steaks ....hubby loved the pepper it was too much for me....steaks were good but not great which was disappointing. Spinach was flavorless (asked to be sauteed with garlic) took desert home and had discussion about including ice cream that came with it...waitress assured us she always includes it....didn't have it when we got home. Staff was very friendly and professional. Have been here a few times before and liked it very much and chose it for our Anniversary. It was good but not special. Seated under a bright light and next to a door that staff was going in and out constantly even though I made reservations long ahead of time and stated it was a special occasion. Staff was very kind in mentioning that.

    We enjoy dining out with or without friends at Novi Chophouse. We like to try new places, but always come back to Novi Chophouse if we crave a consistent, fine dining, perfectly prepared meal. It is a hidden gem! I usually get the filet and my husband loves the scallops. The crab cakes are delicious, scalloped potatoes, and the seasonal vegetable are a must. They use to have the most amazing risotto, however, lately it has been a little overcooked. Overall, we would highly recommend Novi Chophouse. It says a lot when the same waitstaff work there year over year. They must be doing something right!

    This was our first time at the No. VI Chophouse and it far exceeded our expectations! The food was phenomenal and plentiful (no "elf food" here!), and presented with flare from our wonderful server, Brent! While Novi is a little far out of our normal area, we are putting No. VI Chophouse at the top of the list for a special occasion dinner!!!

    My first Chop House experience and it was amazing. I was a hit for making this choice fo my new lady freind. The food was superb, one of the best cooked steaks I have had in a long time. I have been to Shulas, the Gaylord, RuthChris in Florida and in INDY- this ranked among them as a great steak place. Not as pricey as others of same caliber and quality. Service was tremendous, did not have to ask for anything and they were there for both myself and my date. Definately put us both at ease...

    Our server was an absolute professional. The managers were also attentive assuring that our experience was good. Dinner and dessert were wonderful. I had the filet with zip sauce and my girlfriend had the salmon with saffron sauce and they were both outstanding. The creme brûlée was among the best I've had. This was our first anniversary and I look forward to spending many more at No. VI Chophouse.

    If you are looking for consistency, No. VI Chophouse should be on your list. Upon arriving at No. VI Chophouse, we were greeted by the friendly and polite hostess. We arrived a bit early and therefore decided to go to the bar for a cocktail. The bartender was also polite and friendly. They have a excellent selection of wine, beer (nothing on tap, only bottles), and liquor. We then went to our table in the dining room where we were seated at our favorite table (they keep ones preferences on file). Our server, Josh, was polite, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu specials, and throughout the meal he was attentive but did not hover unnecessarily. We'll definitely ask for Josh next time we're there.

    Went there for brunch and our waiter,Matt was too busy cleaning and setting up the tables than serving us. We had to ask 3 times to give us water! He wasn't around to check if our plates are done or if we needed something. And they claim to be a fine dining expecting to have exceptional service?! On top of that regardless of their service they automatically put in a 19% gratuity! Seriously???

    Saddened upon arrival that the restaurant was attached to a hotel, my impression was immediately altered when I entered the dining area; the ambiance there was romantic. Then, I was escorted to the back of the restaurant into a converted room near the pool. The chlorine smell was overwhelming and the feel of that area was no where comparable to the main dining area. The wine selection was adequate, the appetizer, bread and sides were superb. The cut of steak was AMAZING! However, I am accustomed to a more buttery, savory flavor and found the "Detroit Zip Sauce" offered here was much too acidic for me.

    We have dined at the Novi Chop House many times in the past. This time we elected to sit in the bar/lounge area. It was so dark that we could not read the menus and asked our waitstaff to turn-up the lighting. We were given a small flashlight to read the wine list and the lights were turned-up a tad until we placed our order and then turned back down. It was unsettling to have it so dark at 5PM in the afternoon.

    The set up for this brunch was terrible. You had to walk from the dining room through the crowded entryway to a banquet room just to get your food, and then back again. The food was fair at best, and the selection was minimal. I have had many better brunches, and for a more reasonable price. I expected more for $35 per person! The service was less than exceptional as well. When the bill was finally brought to the table, a 19% gratuity was already added. 19% for a buffet?!?!! No wonder the service was poor ....
