Atmosphere at Chop is modern,
Atmosphere at Chop is modern, clean and elegant. The service is outstanding: friendly but professional and attentive without being intrusive. Steaks were cooked exactly as ordered; fish was fresh and cooked gently and the vegetables were perfectly tender-crisp. The wine list is good, with a number of selections available by the glass. The only negative was that one of our party found the sauce for the fish quite salty (other dishes seemed to be appropriately seasoned). Definitely would recommend this restaurant to others, and we will dine here again.

The seafood chowder was not
The seafood chowder was not too tasty, but the French onion soup was good. I ordered a large piece of prime rib with less fat and it was given to me just as I requested (last time one-fifth of my prime rib was fat). My wife's teriyaki top sirloin was a bit smaller than expected. The lobster tails were delicious except that they were both too salty. The server was very polite and helpful.

There were six of us who had the pleasure of dining on Mar 24th .
Every thing was superb from start to finish.. a great gesture was the birthday card with best wishes.. Three of the girls had BD's , we were offered complimentary deserts, ( as everyone was so full we opted for sharing one cake) all of this done in a very classy way,, no singing or applause, just a simple act of kindness.
This is not our first experience at Chop , we often come, we have never been disappointed.
Great food, great people, great atmosphere, equals a great customer experience .. Thanks to all who made this happen h!!

The service was really great.
The service was really great. Hostess was very kind and welcoming! Our server was the best. She was so friendly! I took my family out for dinner to celebrate my dad's birthday and when she found out, she quickly rushed away somewhere to give him a card! The whole experience was amazing. I am definitely going back again! I also had to leave her with a big tip because she deserved it! Chop was pretty yum. I loved the prime rib and crab tacos!

Mother's Day Brunch
I'm always weary about Mother's Day at restaurants. The brunch menu is often very limited, the prices raised, and the service not on because they're busy, etc.
We had reservations with special requests (wheelchair access and high chair/booster). They got them all right, which impressed me because often we have issues with that for whatever reason. The brunch menu had a good selection, priced right for the restaurant. The servings were a good size and everyone loved the taste of their meal. Our waitress was attentive, but not too much. There were three Moms at our table and we all got lovely pots of herbs wrapped up as a parting gift. It was a nice touch.
I'm very happy with hout it all turned out!

Our third time here, once again the food was really good, pricey, but really good for a special occasion.

I brought a couple of clients in for a quick lunch -- and they delivered top quality food and top quality service. Love the Open Table reservation too -- so simple.

Pretty good, not superb
The restaurant was pretty good in general. The servers were pretty courteous. The only thing that was lacking was class. The restaurant is clearly targeting a higher end patronage, but servers were comparable to cactus club or the keg. Would have been much better if they took the professionalism up a notch.

always keeps me coming back
This is definitely a hidden gem in Richmond. Its great for families, large get togethers (they have beautiful private dining rooms), romantic dinners or a night out with the girlfriends (or guys) in their gorgeous lounge.
If you like prime rib, go here. (It's better than the Kegs). They have a great menu, fantastic wine list (gorgeous wine tower), great modern look to the restaurant, and service is very friendly.

nice quiet restaurant
Great menu selection, food was well prepared. Portions were very satisfying. Had prime rib and started with french onion soup. I enjoyed the soup but not recommended if you can't handle it being too peppery. My daughter had to exchange hers for a salad. Complimentary bread was nothing special, looked like a panini bun cut into four small slices. Had the chocolate souffle for desert, wasn't what I expected. Thought it would be baked, and warm as the description said "fallen chocolate souffle" It was cold and resembled a chocolate cake. I even asked our server to confirm that she did give us the correct dessert. Surprised the restaurant wasn't busy on a Sunday evening.

Father's Day at Chop
We felt that this was a great choice for Father's Day and the food and service did not disappoint. The Chop salad with steak bits was satisfying (although there were some tough bits) and refreshing at the same time. The Ahi Tuna was well received and the ravioli was delicious. All in all we had no complaints.

Looking for a good restaurant just before taking off from Vancouver while in for a business trip. In the middle of nowhere when we found this. Despite some really negative reviews on the site, the service was excellent, prompt. Food was terrific. For this area, there isn't a lot of other higher end restaurant!

The best food for special occasion!
If you want to eat the best prime rib (better than the Keg) than you should go to Chop. The atmosphere is amazing with a beautiful dinning room and patio area! Enjoy! I had a really great birthday here!

We decided to celebrate our 3 yr anniversary with your staff. Our experience was awesome. The greeting was exceptional. The service was great (Jon, server). We were always taken care of without being overly interrupted, it being our anniversary. We will highly recommend this to all our friends and family. We will definitely be returning. Love the atmosphere too. Also the supervisor, Danica, gave us a personal welcome <3

Online booking is great
I am very happy with the online booking they provide. Very effective and save time. I like how they serve as well.

Place was enjoyed for both the food and low sound level - we were actually able to have a conversation without shouting..
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never been disappointed yet!
The Chop is a fabulous restaurant. The food is delicious, ambience lovely in both the restaurant and the bar and the private dining rooms are great for a group. The only thing I don't like is their Bellini's- that is my favourite drink and I really don't like the way they make with a block of frozen ice in your glass instead of a slushy texture. Not very good.

Frank is a great server! Everything
Frank is a great server! Everything was amazing! We will be going back for sure.

One of my new favorite restaurants
Food and service were excellent. I chose to go there because a client had to go to the airport right after dinner. Well, we will be taking clients there more often now because the experience was great. I went to Gotham about a month ago and found it overrated and overpriced. Chop should open another restaurant in vancouver. It would take people away from the regular steakhouses.
Definitely a must to visit.

Bday with friends
I booked my husband's birthday on line for 5 people to attend. The food and service was great. on line I requested a birthday dessert and there was nothing done by the server to recognize it was my husband's birthday:( Felt like an ordinary night out for dinner but we also stayed at the sandman to make it a birthday evening. Would have been great to grant what I had asked for in the on line reservation and acknowledge it was my husband's birthday.

Meal was great just disappointed
Meal was great just disappointed with the side. One tiny little half of tomato doesn't live up to seasonable vegetables. But made up forit with the incredible carrot cake dessert soooo good.

according to waiter- my american express card was declined--it was good minutes ago

We went to CHOP to celebrate our anniversary and brought our 5 yr old daughter. The service and prime rib were great and it was a great choice for a kid friendly place to celebrate.

There was a group of us (12) that arrived Sunday evening for dinner. Four of us got there first and the server didn't come to the table for about 10 min. My husband and two of our friends wanted a light drink before everyone else showed up.
Anyways, we ended up ordering appetizers once everyone arrived and the appies were great. Everyone ordered their main meals but have to say those were just good. Not great yummy just okay. Our server was great and because of her we would probably go back.

Good for special occasions
Great ambiance, service was acceptable. Although the other reviews said that the service was impeccable, we were left wanting.
The food overall was delicious. The prime rib could have been better. Our group preferred the prime rib from The Keg more so than the one at Chop.
