Good food and drinks
Always a good choice when you want a good steak. We always go early so we can have cocktails because the bartender makes amazing martinis!

Chops is #1! I love to steak (describes my passion for dining on excellent cuts of meat) The prime rib at Chops melted like butter. Hubby had porterhouse and OMG! Delicious! Couldn't finish it. Top shelf service thanks to Dan. Wonderful for supper. Can't wait to bring some of my fellow steakers to Chops. :)

We've been to Chops many times
We've been to Chops many times in the past and went again this time for my wife's birthday. We had a great experience, as usual, with 2 slight issues. I was somewhat surprised when we got the bill that we were charged $2 to split a salad and $2.95 for "loaded" mashed potatoes. The cost doesn't concern me, as much as the principle behind it. I would suggest telling the customer of the charge up front and let them make the decision to whether to accept it or not. This way, there's no surprises at the end.
Otherwise, we had a great dinner at a great restaurant.

The waiter was excellent!
The waiter was excellent! Very attentive and accommodating!
The manager was okay but when the Manhattan drink which was watered down and no taste..the manager had it made with Makers and instead of charging me $7 he charged me the $10 because it was made with Markers which I did not request.
If the Manhattan was not suitable he should make it up to par and not use the expensive liquor and not tell me!!!
Manager did not set well with us. We were there at 5:30PM on Tuesday, April 9 in Sacramento on 11th St.

Appetizers were good, and
Appetizers were good, and very reasonable for happy hour. Server was not patient with order at bar. When asked him a question regarding the menu, he said he'll be back when ready to order, rather than answering question. Felt like we were a bother.

Excellent food and service,
Excellent food and service, plus the waiter and waitress were helpful with answering questions concerning the menu. This was my 2nd visit to Chops and I'll be coming back. They have the best porterhouse steak I've ever had :-) For dessert I shared a humungous piece of cheesecake plus I had a choco-tini--chocolate martini. Delicious!

Great menu selection & service!
We've been here for Mother's Day Brunch and dinner, and this time, dinner again. We can clearly see the general manager, Brian really cares about customers and the restaurant that he represents. He is doing a fantastic job and the server we had was excellent as well. We tried Lobster Quesadilla for an appetizer. Simply delicious! Mango sauce that came with it was sweet, tangy with a little kick and it was perfect for the quesadilla. 8 oz New York on special was also perfect. Rice that came with it was so, so. We also had a fettuccine with scallops and they were seared to perfection. Fettuccine was cooked a la dente, exactly how I like them, but its temperature was not hot enough and I was not crazy about the sauce... Very plain and fatty.

Good but not great.
Had mothers day brunch at Chops with my family. Nice restaurant with great service. Staff was very attentive and friendly. The Mother's Day brunch offered many options. Our favorites were the tuna tartare, omlet bar, and prime rib. Everything else was just ok or subpar. The waffles were dry, ham and bacon were extremely salty. Overall, it was a good experience but food was not what I expected for a more upscale steakhouse.

Little SF Moms Lunch
A group of us get together for lunch every few months to catch up. We wanted someplace that we could chat without having to yell to be heard over "ambience" music and not feel pressured to leave right after eating. Since a few of us have dietary restrictions, we also needed someplace that offered items we could all eat. Chops was a fabulous place for us to meet, chat, & eat. We had excellent service & are planning our next outing - back to Chops!

Melt in your mouth flavor
Chops has an outstanding menu and a fantastic bar and wait staff. The wait staff was well versed on the menu and provided outstanding recommendations, as well as, were open to item substitutions. The food was melt in your mouth. Their signature drinks were fantastic, not too light or heavy on the alcohol. Just great flavor all around. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the view of the capitol and the soft evening breeze.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Chops. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The food was great and the portion sizes were very reasonable. I would definitely go back.

We had a reservation for 5pm but they were not ready. We were seated about 14 minutes late. Amber our waitress was very good and she made up for the late seating. Food was very good.

Great place to take a friend or date. Quiet and low lightings. Servers are nice and checks up on us every 10 min.

Great food and service every time
Porterhouse was great. Filet was great. Cocktails were great. And Kinsey, our server really took care of us and some in our party were very high maintenance. But the service kept up with all of us. I have paid more for steak in Sacramento, but this steak was by far better tasting.

Fabulous experience. We enjoyed the special dinner for two and a bottle of wine. Still can't believe the great price. The wait staff provided excellent service and great recommendations.

Chops has those great booths. They are about the last that can offer this private a setting since The Broiler closed. Good food and excellent service.

Great place to meet for pols
If you need a good lunch and you're near the Capitol, this is a great choice. Food is always fresh and service is above average.

Good but not over the top
I guess for this kind of money I want to think "Wow" when I bite into it. My filet mignon was good, maybe a tad overcooked but still good. My husband's prime rib was ordered medium rare and I would call it medium well -- not even pink. Honestly the steaks and prime rib we make at home is just as good or better. I was pleased that with my food allergies the kitchen was aware of what's in everything, and that's always a good sign in terms of likely using fresh ingredients and making things on site rather than short cuts. I'd still go back if someone wanted to go but it wouldn't be my first choice for the money.

Best overpriced burger I ever had
I got a $10-off email coupon for lunch at Chops. I've eaten dinner there several times (special occasions), but the discount let me try lunch. We picked the Columbus Day holiday because we thought the restaurant would be less crowded (true) and parking would be easier (not true).
You can't beat Chops for quiet, clubby atmosphere. The lack of noise was nice since we had lots of catching up to do. We both ordered the hamburger. It was extremely tasty and cooked perfectly. Fries were fine, too, although a little too garlicky for my taste. Lemonade -- from a powdered mix -- was grossly overpriced.
Our young server was efficient and pleasant.
Overall, it was a nice meal, but I'm not likely to have lunch at Chops unless someone else is paying.

Nice atmosphere, good wine.... The food wonderful, unfortunately we did not have time for dessert!

Was VERY disappointed that you were out of non-alcohoiic beer
Food was good as always; the Lamb lolipops were pretty fatty

Food was good, but service
Food was good, but service was a bit slow, even after we told the server we had a time constraint.

Great Food and Service
Helpful staff and the food was amazing. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly. A great night out on a date before the show!

We had a very nice, quiet 40th Anniversary by ourselves in a wonderful restaurant.

My friend and I enjoyed a really nice dinner filled with laughter. Danielle (our server) was very accommodating and we have an amazing time enjoying the great food! I highly recommend the Wet Aged Filet Mignon. They even created a special prawn cocktail (not on the menu). It was delightful!

Chops is a gorgeous restaurant with an interesting menu.
Our service was impeccable, our steak very flavorful and the ambiance very enticing.
Plus, we were pleased to meet one of the owners and swapped some sister stories!
I will definitely be returning.

our favorite place!!
We went for Thanksgiving and it's the third year we've gone. As usual, the meal and service was great! Thanks again!

Surf and Turf Instead of Turkey
It was a profound relief to dine at Chops on Thanksgiving and simply share a great meal with a close friend. The last few years have involved a lot of sadness and dislocation amongst our families, and it was very good to not have to force a failed attempt to recreate a "Norman Rockwell" tableau. The contrast of memories between "then" and "now" would have been a bummer. Thank you, Chops, for some much-needed Thanksgiving therapy.
