We enjoyed the Chop very much. The food and service were excellent. The dining room itself was a bit hard to find as we came in from the parkade and had never been there before.

Where is the prime rib?
I really enjoyed my steak and shared crab tacos with a friend for an appie. I was however disappointed that they were out of prime rib as I went there with the goal of trying out their homemade horseradish - maybe next time.

Order not right
This is our second time at this resturant. Both times my friend ordered a steak sandwich well done and was very specific with the instructions saying absolutely no pink. On both occasions her steak came out Medium. In the latest visit you could see the blood on the top of the steak so it was obvious it was not well done. We will probably visit the resturant again, however my friend said she will not order steak there again.

Good Food and Great waiter!
Our waiter was wonderful! Our food was awesome.. I had steak sandwich which was a real steak! A lady had the beef dip and it was huge! Great fries!
Only negative is that the manager when we called in our order as we wanted to ensure we could be in and out ...he said normally only do it for groups of 10 or more. I try to understand that as it is easier for everyone and if worried no show take a credit card with order. I would love to come back but not sure how I can if they do not take order as it is a bit of a hike from our office.

We had the best waiter! He was attentive, friendly and helpful. Food was quick and he returned often to check water, and make sure we were fine. As we were an alcohol free table, this level of service was unusual and truly appreciated!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall, everything was excellent! The only minor issue was the hamburger that my son ordered. It was a little too salty and he could not finish it.

Family get together
Serving a group of 15 people is no easy task. Our waiters were awesome, personable and a lot of fun. We ate great food (served in a very timely manner) delicious drinks. Have already told friends!

Some really tasty breakfast menu options, and the service was excellent. I'll be coming here more often for breakfast.

This was a great choice for us to celebrate both a birthday and a graduation. We had an incredible "private" dining space and the food and waitress were excellent. Our new favorite steakhouse

The Chop Downtown
Greeted as soon as we walked in, a but confusing to where we were as there were two levels. Food was good but nothing to crazy. Service by Graham was superb. The white draft beer, can't recall the name, was fantastic.

Great Birthday Experience
I went with a group for lunch on my birthday and had a great time. The waitress was friendly and answered all questions we had about the menu (it was the first time any of us had gone there). The food was awesome, I had the duck BLT and would recommend it to anybody, even people who think they don't like duck. The burger was huge and the fries were addictive. We all loved the design of the restaurant and all want to go back again but want to try the bar out.

Nice Little Impromptu Evening Out
I've been to Chop Downtown before, but never sat in the dining room because the lounge is so vibrant and energetic. Anyway, we decided to sit in the dining room upstairs and it was a nice little experience. The dining room was completely empty for a Sunday evening which did not bother us at all, it was somewhat nice to have the place to ourselves. We had the crab cakes to start, both ordered salads which were both just delicious in their own right (the Ahi Tuna Salad, and Chop Salad with grilled chicken), and we finished with the Chocolate Souffle Cake which is a perfect dessert to share because it is a tad sweet. The service was great and the presentation of the food was appealing. It was a perfect impromptu Sunday dinner experience!

Took my parents here for their anniversary dinner along with my other siblings. Ambiance was modern and refined. Had two servers as one was in training. Took the time to offer appetizer, wine pairing and dessert suggestions. Server checked in server times during each part of the meal to ensure we were finding the food and drink acceptable. Food was presented well and portions were large; no issues with our orders or having to wait a long time to be served. Great experience.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant appeared to have a level of sophistication but was very relaxing and comfortable. We enjoyed many appetizers and drinks before the main meal. The food was absolutely delicious. No complaints about food or table setting, everything was amazing. The staff was very friendly and we received top notch service. Not once did we feel rushed. It definitely had a homey feeling as our dinner lasted over 3 hours. The only complaint is the restaurant is upstairs and as I have a handicap issue I did not find the restaurant easily accessible. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful, mouth-watering food, excellent service, and great atmosphere.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service and food.Drinks in both the restaurant and bar were top shelf!

Excellent food, unattentive server
My wife and I love trying new restaurants, and like most we love a good steakhouse. I started with the french onion soup, and it was the best I've ever had. The texture and flavour was incredible.
For the main course, we both ordered the prime rib. There are only a few restaurants in Edmonton that I'll regularly order prime rib at, and we've just found another. Both were perfectly cooked, and the horseradish was very freshly prepared (eyewateringly good). We will definitely be back, and would recommend Chop to anyone.
Drawbacks: Restaurant Entrance was hard to find (it's on the 2nd floor of hotel), and our server was almost non-existent. If it weren't for one of the managers, this would have significantly effected our experience.

As I work very close to this location, it is a great place to go for lunch with colleges or for a lunch meeting. Also, really nice lounge to meet after work for a drink. Service is always excellent!

We had a reservation but really wanted to sit in the lounge as wanted to see the activities of the city street life at K Days time of the year. No problem getting in to the lounge as a "walk-in", and it was great.

Modern Steakhouse- big hit!
We were looking for an intimate place to celebrate my husband's birthday, just the two of us, and found Chop to be perfect. The food was fantastic; if you're a steak lover, this is it!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first time at Chop! The waitress, food and atmosphere was fantastic!!
I ordered the mushroom ravioli with prawns on top. I was very impressed on the presentation of the food and how flavourful the dish was. I also had 2 glasses of the Sangria which was made exactly how I liked it. The waitress was also excellent. She was very friendly and always made sure we had full drinks and we were happy.
Thank you for everything! I have been recommending Chop to everyone I have spoken to since dining there. I will definitely be coming back.

I went with a group of seven people and all but one of us had a great time. Several of us ordered the beef dip and it was to die for. Simply delicious! The only member of our group that was not completely happy - he had a steak sandwich and the piece of meat was poor. Otherwise, the other six of us had a very good meal. Service was fast and friendly. They brought refills without prompting and the food was absolutely tasty!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service. Food was awesome, totally hit the spot! Stephanie was a gem, very knowledgeable and personable, as long as she works there we'll be coming back!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, and excellent service. A little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten at this location twice and have had great food and service. Thanks
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We just happened to go here because it was close to our hotel. There where 4 of us 2 adults and 2 kids aged 2 and 6. We did make a reservation tho when we got there we were the only ones there, but that was great! Normally we don't go to such nice places with our kids(out of courtesy for others). The staff was great with us and the children, the food was good, I had the filet mingnon with lobster potatoes and my husband have the smoked rib eye with the wasabi potatoes, both were cooked perfectly. The wasabi Potatos where the best I was sad I didn't get them.

Variety of bread made fresh daily (nice touch).
Wonderful food, good brunch atmosphere.

Attentive service made up
Attentive service made up for average food. We will be back again and see if food quality improves.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Waiter was great, steak was great, great for kids they get appitizers with there meal from the kids menu, there king crab was a issue there's no garlic for the seafood just butter, first crab wasn't cooked properly and came to the table cold, by the time the replacement came I was ful and the crab was water tasting, they gave the dessert sampler for the mistake, the dessert is amazing if u like creme brûlée or the gluten free chocolate soufflé or rum cake mmmmm would totally go back sometime for the steak dinner and dessert, there potatoes gave wassabi in them its different tasting but ok, its very expensive and won't be a often spot to dine, 132$ for two adults and two kids kinda crazy!!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we decided on Chop Downtown, we never expected it to be so great! We had reserved a spot in the dining room, but started off in the lounge and actually stayed there because of our great waitress and atmosphere. The drinks, food, dessert ever their espresso (which we are discerning) was fabulous! Time flew by and it was extremely comfortable. I would recommend this spot for a semi-casual night out and a formal romantic dinner. Definately worth a try!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and very convenient
We have dined there many times. Always great food and a pleasurable dinning experience.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good place for romance
decent place to eat, the setting was the best part though. the night we went, the waitress clearly had too many tables to tend to as we did not see much of her. When we she brought our bill, it was from another table and was a little shocked at how she turned to the tables beside us that she also served to ask if any of them had the meals listed and if they may also have the wrong bill. Based on the fact the restaurant was nowhere near capacity, I guess I would have expected her to remembered what we ordered.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was amazing, great ambiance, great food, service was great, they forgot to bring us our accompaniment with our meal and in reparation they gave us a free dessert. My girlfriend has a severe peanut allergy and they did an amazing job of accommodating us. everything on their menu was peanut free and the manager checked in with us every so often to make sure we were doing well. Definitely going back again and i would recommend this restaurant to almost anyone for a nice dinner whether that be a date or a family outing.

Good Food, Service and Location
We reserved at this restaurant for a dinner out before a hockey game. We were contacted by the restaurant after reserving to inform us that the reservation would be for the dining room on the second floor of the restaurant, but to let them know if we wanted to be seated in the lounge area on the ground floor. As two couples we took different routes to the second floor - one through the lounge area; the other from the second floor pedway in the hotel (interesting design). The service was outstanding. They were attentive without being overbearing, friendly, informative and concerned for the quality of our experience. Two of us ordered the "Chop Experience" with Prime Rib; the others ordered steak from the menu. It was well prepared.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the smoked rib eye and WOW, medium rare, and couldn't have been happier with my choice. It was a cold smoked meat and then grilled to perfection. It wasn't busy in the restaurant and our server didn't keep our glasses of water topped up, for a restaurant of this caliber I'd expect that to be a fundamental. We weren't in a hurry and even though we had to ask for more water the steak was worth it. Hopefully the next time the service is better because the food is certainly worth it.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The lunch special we ordered
The lunch special we ordered which was prime rib on top of sliced bread was really good, melt in your mouth very tender meat and was filling enough we didn't need to have dessert after which was good as we were only there for a lunch hour. The service was great too. The price is reasonable with the quality of the food and ambiance of the place.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for Groups
I recently organized a support for 10 people here, and it was quite the success. The menu had a selection for all tastes, and the restaurant had server duties split, so that orders were taken quickly. My group really appreciated that they were quick and efficient and the meals tasted great. They even were able to have one guest "catch" up to the rest of us when we were late. Really handled everything well.

Had lunch at this beautifully appointed restaurant. The restaurant has beautiful lighting, friendly staff and great food. The service was prompt and friendly. But I would say that our waitress was a little too personal. When you have an hour for lunch, it's not about getting to know each other, it should be about getting your order in and watching the tables to see if anyone needs anything. I'm there to visit with my guest not the waitress. That would be my only tip for the restaurant is be mindful that we only have so much time. In the evening it might be different, but I still think our waitress was a little too personal.

I went to Chop for my 30th birthday. I was looking for a place with good food that wasn't crazy expensive, since some of my friends are students and living on student budgets. Chop hit the bill perfectly. The food is outstanding, and there are plenty of options even if you don't want to spend a lot.
The smoked ribeye is fantastic, but I recommend getting it medium rare (or more) instead of rare; I found the fat didn't melt very well & so instead of having a super-tender, well marbled steak, I had a super-tender steak with tough bits of fat that I had to cut around. If I'd ordered it medium rare, this probably wouldn't have been an issue.
I highly recommend Chop if you're looking for a good steak.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent Service and Food
Our food was amazing. We had a small issue with two of our steaks, but the way the staff handled it was professional and above and beyond what we expected.
We will be back!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had an excellent time here. Table wasn't ready when my group arrived, so we were brought down to the bar and given complimentary sparkling wine for our trouble. Service and food were fantastic!

Best prime rib we have had in a restaurant in years. Knowledgeable waiter. Good wine list
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server was FANTASTIC. Her sense of humour was very entertaining and her knowledge of the menu and how the food is prepared was very helpful. Food was served quickly, hot and the plate presentation was excellent. Great service and great food, can't go wrong with that combination!!!

We celebrated my husbands
We celebrated my husbands thirtieth birthday on Friday. The private room we got for our table of 10 was a nice surprise. Unfortunay the service lacked a bit. My starter mussles arrive well after everyone had finished their starters already. No reason given for why it took so long. Our servers also rarely checked on us. We ran out of water several times and when she finally brought water, she brought one bottle for 10 people. My husbands side of crab also arrived late, and my steak was burnt and dry. Everyone else enjoyed their meal. All in all we had a good time.
