  • 30th Birthday Dinner
    GRDiner
    Dined on 10/16/2014
    We went here to celebrate my boyfriends 30th Birthday. I was pleasantly surprised when I got the bill to see that you get half off your meal on your birthday. The steaks were delicious, as was the rest of our meal. The staff was excellent, and the entire night was memorable. The only minor flaw is the noise in there. It would have been nice to have a bit more private spot where we didn't have to talk so loud in order to hear each other.

    I took my wife to the Chop House for the 1st time for her birthday. Our waiter was helpful and showed us a picture on the menu on what the level of pink would be for our steaks. We ordered the same. Her steak was burned with no pink anywhere. The waiter was embarressed and a manager came over and promptly took it away. 15 minutes later a new steak arrived and this one was severely under-cooked. He apologized and took it back for a 3rd time. She had it bagged because by now my meal was gone. Another manager came over and apologized but the experience was over at that point. Her steak was free along with desserts but it doesn't erase the overall experience. This was her birthday evening that I found myself apologizing for!

    Great ambience, good menu offering, great service! Sides and apps were great, entree(filet) was not "plated" hot and served warm. Grade/cut was above average but at $49 it should have been "top shelf". Serving temp affected my review.

    My boyfriend and I heard about The Chop House a few years ago through friends. We've been coming for each others birthdays ever since. It's always great and I try to get something different each time. So far it keeps getting better! I also always order the meat at the recommended temperature of the chef to ensure it's most enjoyable.

    The food left me wanting more. I got the filet and it was a great piece of meat and cooked to my liking, however it didn't much flavor. I didn't put sauce on it because it was a $60 steak(even though I wanted to) but I did add some salt. The staff was well trained. Some of the service was over the top and unnecessary. My husband and I didn't like the fact that they raise the plate in the air before they place it on the table. Other than that one thing the service was great, even better than Ruth's Chris. When my husband and I go out for a nice meal we prefer good food over good service. In the future we plan on going elsewhere.

    My husband and I come here a few times per year and have always had a consistently great experience. The food is prepared well and the service is outstanding. I will mention that I thought the French onion soup was too salty and I ordered the scallops with my steak which I thought were slightly overcooked, however, they weren't a deal breaker for me because of the wonderful service. The steaks are phenomenal as is the ahi tuna and mac and cheese. The atmosphere was buzzing, especially for a Thursday night and a reservation on the later side which is always nice. I would say that one of the biggest draws away from the Chop House is to Ruth's Chris across the street because of its more modern decor and atmosphere.

    Dined on 10/8/2014
    I loved the service, it was so professional! They were very polite and they even recommended some special dishes that the chef was prepparing. Our server's name was Blake and he was the BEST! The ambiance was very romantic and easy going with a touch fancy! ;) The food was AMAZING! One of the best meals I've had in my life. It's on the pricey end but it is 120% WORTH IT! love love love! They even have a deal if you go on your birthday, the meal portion is 50% off! So it's super worth it! From appetizer to dessert to drinks inbetween, this is my new favorite fancy resteraunt! :D

    I took three professional women out for dinner to discuss business, personal things, and anything inbetween. The night was full of sharing and laughter, and we were fully supported and served by the great Chop House staff. They filled water glasses and wine glasses right on cue. I couldn't have asked for a better night out for these women.

    To celebrate a special occasion, my partner and I dined at the Chop House in Grand Rapids this past weekend. We've been to both this restaurant and its sister property in Ann Arbor a few times before. The service (Thanks John Wilson!) was superb... the perfect blend of taking really good care of us without being intrusive. John also recommended an excellent wine (Charrones Meurseult... a nice, dry French white burgundy) that paired well with our dover sole. (One very minor criticism is that that sole was not served tableside but that may be because we split the entree... in fact all courses which they split in the kitchen - a much appreciated extra effort). One minor recommendation: a little jazz music in the background. Great job!

    I ordered the 11oz filet mignon medium and it was cooked perfectly. My wife ordered the salmon and asked for it blackened after being given that option by the waitress but it arrived at our table looking only very lightly grilled. My wife accepted it and was happy with it even thought it was not prepared as she had ordered. We also ordered the au gratin potatoes and the asparagus, both of which were delicious and large enough for two to share.

    We enjoyed a quiet meal with dear friends. At the chop house you can hear table conversation without yelling. The food as always amazing. My husband always enjoys the Beef Wellington and I sea food. This is one of the reasons we love the Chop House. They prepare sea food and Steak equally well ! I Look forward to the next occasion that brings us to the Chop House.

    The Chop House was a wonderful way for us to punctuate 24 years of marriage! They actually read and responded to my request for a secluded table to celebrate our anniversary AND congratulated us upon our arrival for our years of marriage. After several times of restaurants ignoring a request for a table not on the main walkway in, it was wonderful to have them accommodate us. Our waiter Tim was wonderful, fun and witty, there when we needed him and gone when we did not. His suggestions were spot on for food and drink combos.

    My wife and I went to The Chop House in Grand Rapids for her birthday this year and we were not disappointed. When I made reservations, I noted that it was for my wife's birthday and when we arrived, they greeted her saying, "Happy Birthday, Christie". It was a nice touch. All of the wait staff also wished her a happy birthday and when we we seated at our table, there was a birthday card waiting, signed by all of the staff. The menu's were very nice, as they were presented on tablets that showed pictures for every item on the list as well as drink pairings for those specific items. Best of all, at the end of the dinner, we were given 50% off of our food bill for her birthday! Everyone was extremely nice & professional! This place is a must!

    We started with the lobster bisque - which was to die for. I had the steak au poivre which was terrific; my wife had the scallops which she thought were great. We also had the spinach with garlic which was perfectly prepared. The bread served before the meal was also excellent. Certainly the best restaurant meal we have had in GR, but easily the most expensive!

    Unless you have a liberal expense account, this is great $$$$ place best visited on a very special occasion. All service staff members are incredibly well trained and exemplify the best of midwestern customer service -- quick, respectful, accommodating and very pleasant -- not officious, in-your-face, nor overly impressed with themselves for getting hired by such a good restaurant. Our entrees were exceptional with surprisingly large portions. I had the largest single serving of swordfish ever, and she had a "petite" filet mignon that exceeded any petite measurements. Both were prepared simply but deliciously. We loved the menus on iPads with deep details on all food selections, but tapping and swiping thru the notable wine list was great!
