Great for business lunches
Great business lunch spot. Quiet enough to have a good discussion and a nice treat for customers that don't go to lunch there on their own because of the higher prices.

Go with the steak
I love the steak here. It's always been fantastic. Yesterday I had the lamb shank for lunch and although still good, I found it not to be at the same level as the steaks.

Good for lunch
It was a reasonable noise level in there and great seating for parties that come in to discuss work matters. It felt very private even though we were sat at a table.

Food was fantastic so was the service and ambience
This was my second time at the Chicago Chophouse as a visitor from Toronto

I have not been to the Chophouse
I have not been to the Chophouse for well over a year due only to the location from my office.I happened to dine there for lunch 2 days in a row this week and was more than satisfied with the outstanding Lamb Shank on Tuesday and the Pacific Panini on Wednesday. The two waiters were knowledgeable, friendly, polite, and extremely professional.
Will I be going back again, YES. Will I recommend, YES. The Chophouse is one of my top three picks for downtown Calgary.

My arugula/chevre/beet salad
My arugula/chevre/beet salad was excellent, my lobster bisque delicious but it didn't need the puff pastry on top. My friend said his chops with pasta were very good. The service was great and the nicest part was that the chef came to our table to enquire if we liked the food.
The only disappointment was the decor which looks like a seventies food court.

The popcorn shrimp was good.
The popcorn shrimp was good. The steak sandwich needs more spice. It was a bit dry.

Since retiring in 2009, I have not been to the Core to dine. We were entertaining guests that were working downtown and felt the Chicago Chophouse would be convenient and guaranteed good food. One of our guests had never been but am sure he will return.

Chicago Chophouse did not
Chicago Chophouse did not disappoint, I loved the decor and atmosphere, the Prime Rib was fabulous and the baked to order apple pie with homemade vanilla bean ice cream and caramel was to die for! We will be back again in the future.

Great lunch! Great service!
My friend and I ordered the Prime Rib Dip and mine was with roasted veges and my friend wanted a side of mashed potatoes. But my order was incorrect and came with fries. The waiter left me with my Prime Rib Dip and the fries. I was amazed that the Chicago Chophouse would be so accommodating to let me eat my food while I wait for my roasted veges. It came about 3 mins later and I was a happy camper! Impressed with the wait service here. Piping hot Prime Rib in this soft buttery baguette. The dip was in a little dish and I found it a little awkward dipping my big sandwich in that tiny little dish. The roasted vege-so good. I recommend the Prime Rib Dip with Roasted Vegetables.

The service was excellent
The service was excellent - warm & inviting and attentive on a rainy Calgary day. I have the Spanish Quinoa Salad topped with striploin - the heirloom tomato salsa that surrounded the salad was exquisite! The tomatoes were fresh and full of flavor - just excellent! The Malbec that I had warmed the chill from the walk to the restaurant. Overall my colleague and I had a great experience with the atmosphere, service, food quality - an overall top rate!

Best steak in a long time
I have to admit that this was one of the best steaks I have had in a loooong time. Done to perfection with an awesome Bearnaise sauce. Not sure I needed the parade of raw meet to go with the spiel about their steaks. If you have a hankering for a good steak - go to the Chicago steakhouse!

Great girls night out!!!
Went in for some appy's and drinks on my girl's night out. Food, drinks, and service were top notch, thanks Laura and Chophouse, will definitely be back soon!!!

We had the shared plates and the food was delicious. We had the amuse bouche followed by beef wellington and butternut squash ravioli and then turtle cheesecake for dessert. All the food was delicious. We also chose wine pairing and the wine was also very good. The timing of the different dishes was perfect. Our server was James and he was very friendly, courteous and explained and served the different food dishes in a very professional manner. Would certainly go to the Chicago Chophouse when in Calgary again.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was my first time at Chicago Chophouse and I am really looking forward to go back and have a great time AGAIN with my very close friends. I found the venue amazing and the food was tasty and great portions.
Definitely I will come back with my husband and friends.
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our night was great, we made a reservation but was not needed as it was not too busy.
Everything came together so nice, I'm pregnant so the drink selection was not the best but that didn't stop our server from making me a specialty non alcoholic fruit drink from off the menu. They had a wide selection of beer which you ordered from an iPad for my boyfriend. The food was amazing as well, well worth the money! The steaks were to die for and the sides were so delicious!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was second to none, and the food matched. Thanks for a great experience!

Great service - didn't recognize our OpenTable reservation at first ..
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Canada prime steaks were fantastic! Overall a great dinner, even for my 6 and 8 year old nieces, they especially loved the shrimp lollipos and turtle cheesecake! Steaks were cooked to perfection and the lobster Mac and cheese was soo delicious! Can't wait for another special occasion to go back! Service is really good and very accommodating for those with children, even made the girls their very own special mocktails! Chicago Chophouse is definatelly worth the visit!!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall A Great Experience
We travelled to Calgary from Vancouver in search of great steaks. Enjoyed, all the food ordered overall. I only wish they carry Grain Fed Aged Steaks instead of Grass Fed Aged Steaks. Our waitress Jenna gave us the best service ever.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Evening Out :)
What a great place to go for any occasion. Food was very good and their ceasar's were very tasty.

Meet and Eat
It's a delightful spot to meet a friend for lunch, get caught up plus great choices for lunch that you are full and satisfied but not stuffed. Check out their appetizers and salads. The service was good and the young lady that took care of us tried to make her appearance at the table between sentences. She was very conscious of the fact we had not seen each other for awhile. Thank you.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been meaning to go into this restaurant for a very long time. It is one of the original "trendy" restaurants back in the early 2000's. Service was great, the food was tasty and I enjoyed the environment.

Best steak in Cowtown
I was dubious of ordering the steak with the cheese and chocolate glaze but our waitress said it was her favourite so I went for it and I wasn't disappointed. Can't wait for the opportunity to have it again when I'm in Calgary next.
The Macaroni and cheese side was also absolutely delicious.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Got in quickly and easily for a business lunch. Food was good. I'd recommend it.

A very good lunch and an excellent place for an informal business meeting.

This was one of the best steaks I have had in the city, the New York steak was sublime, I would recommend the Cowboy cut for large appetites. Great service and friendly atmosphere.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steaks I had in Calgary!
The service we got was great and the food was awesome: try the black & blue New York striploin or centre cut tenderloin ... steaks to die for!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a nice dinner!
It was nice to try somewhere new. We started off with the beef-bacon wrapped duck, it was delicious! We both had steaks, the 10oz New york and the 10oz Rib eye which were very flavorful and perfectly cooked to our liking. They even provided us with a meat presentation so we could see the different cuts and learn a littler about their preparation process. We ended with the campfire s'mores which were your typical s'more but very fun to cook right at the table! Our server was great. He made sure we had what we needed without being annoying. Overall, I would definitely recommended this place to someone looking for a nice place to get a steak.

We had a great meal! And will
We had a great meal! And will come back again. We originally came in for the Prime rib as every time we've had it before it has been wonderful. We learned right away from our great server that the Prine Tub was off the menu - so that the chef could perfect the technique of cooking the Prime Rib. We look forward to coming back to try the improved version - even though we loved it before.
Thanks for always giving us a wonderful meal.

Hoppin' at The Chophouse
The always busy Chicago Chophouse never fails to deliver. In a easily accessed location in downtown, it's a lunchtime favourite for those working in the core. Pleasant and attentive service compliment a wide array of menu items from the Cobb Salad to juicy steaks that are always well prepared and delivered in a timely fashion. The Chicago Chophouse is a can't miss restaurant!
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
All around well presented
We came for a business lunch, though I hadn't been here for years. Not sure when they renovated, but the place looks great! The menu was diverse enough to please the masses, but not too overwhelming. The service was attentive without being 'in your face' all the time. Our server was knowledgable and was able to make recommendations. All around, the meals were very tasty. I'll be back .... sooner next time!
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
I want to say upfront, this is not a cheap place at all. However the quality of the food is worth the price.
The table ordered, French Onion soup to start. It was rich, dark flavors and thick. Really good, a nice take on a traditional dish.
- Burger with Lobster Mac and Cheese - Really good for $20, homemade patties, fresh toppings. The lobster mac was rich and delicious. A must have for lunch.
- Steak Sand which with Fries - Great cut of steak, looks to be about 6oz, little fat. Cooked perfectly. The fries are house fries, done the right way.
- Pacific Panini with Lobster Mac and Cheese - Great panini, full of flavor. Thick lobster and crab with a bit of kick.
Overall if you want to indulge then I would recommend!
10/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
My second time in and ordered exactly what I had the first time. Why spoil a good thing?! Everything was delicious and the service was fantastic. Of course, it also helped that Wayne Gretzky was also dining there at the same time. You can't go against the Great One! If it's good enough for Wayne, it's good enough for me.
10/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Steak and vibrant atmosphere
Still one of the best steaks in Calgary with a 20 day dry aged flavor and tenderness. Accompanied with the Lobster Bisque with nice chunks of tasty lobster was a highlight. Not an everyday lunch place but very worthwhile on occasion.

Fit for a King
Took my wife there for dinner before a Flames game. The server Sara was fantastic. She was energetic, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to ensure out evening was an experience not to be forgotten. Sara brought varous cuts of beef to the table to be viewed and she explained the benefits of each cut. Our steakes were presented and cooked perfectly. It was for sure the best steak I have ever had in Calgary.
We will be going back to the Chicago Chophouse again and again!

Great Night Out!
Took my mom for dinner here and the experience was wonderful. The flowers I had ordered were on the table. I had a group of 7 that included 3 kids under 4 years old. They had us tucked away in a nice spacious area that was also quiet. They had high chairs for the kids, although no kids menu- however we were able to order some sides for them to share... so that was pretty reasonable. I did wish that there was rice of some sort, although there was a good variety of other options. The prices were reasonable for food, but there didn't seem to be many inexpensive options for wine- were were able to get a nice bottle for $90, but the options for a reasonably priced GOOD wine was limited. Expect to spend just over $100 per person.

Excellent Service and Food
Our server was great, the food was great. The Christmas decor was really nice. My guests and I both had a great experience.
