    This is my second time in the Chop House. The scallops were delicious. The chop salad was just ok for $22. The smashed potatoes were amazing. The NY strip was blah at $44. The sommelier recommended an okay bottle of wine for $94. It is a good restaurant if you have the money to throw away. We celebrate Bdays here because of the discount which is a great deal. Other than that, I dont think we would go if we had to pay full price.

    My wife and I love dining out and have been to many nice restaurants over our years together. Outside of a VERY hi priced meal we had in Vegas this was the best experience we have ever had! The only thing better than the food was the pampering and service we received. This is a must try place and if Tesha is available as a server get her!!

    We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was outstanding. Our waiter was present just when we needed him to be, every time. The filets were cooked to perfection, with Oscar style lobster a perfect addition. The lobster bisque was the best I have ever had. You get what you pay for and this was well worth the price. We could become frequent diners at The Chop House.

    The service was outstanding. The steaks are excellent. Better than Ruth Chris. Great bar and good drinks. The only disappointment was the wine list. Too few wines by the glass, almost no half-bottles and a limited selection of bottles. We will come back.

    I love The Chop House! Although we have Ruth's Chris and Judson's nearby, I would always chose The Chop House first. I had the NY Strip and it was cooked to perfection, medium rare. My husband ordered the Kobe rib-eye, which was also perfectly good and well marbled. For our sides we had the scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach. I didn't particularly care for the spinach, but the potatoes were amazing. The lobster bisque and house salad were very good starters. We were a little disappointed that we weren't able to enjoy an after dinner cigar as they were having a special event in the lounge, however they did advise we would still be able to enjoy an after dinner drink if we wanted. I will definitely be back soon!

    The Chop House continues to be one of the reasons I visit Grand Rapids at all. Fantastic experience all around, and I continue to appreciate the transition from dinner to after-dinner downstairs. It makes for a great night. The staff is very well trained. They make sure we "enjoy" every minute.

    Food and service was, as always, outstanding. The steak speaks for itself, but the little things like setting down all food plates at the same time for all 4 people, knowledge of wine pairings and at the same time a formal but relaxed setting makes this place perfect.

    Overall, we had a fine dining experience at the Grand Rapids Chop House. The service was great and ambiance pleasant. However, after a fine buildup of appetizer, salads, lobster bisque, we felt let down when the main course arrived. The garlic smashed potato dish was pretty good (not great), but the New York strip steak, while fairly flavorful, was definitely on the tough side. It did not measure up to our expectation. I mentioned this to the server, and we were offered a free dessert as compensation. We have visited Chicago's Chop House in the past and were well pleased with that experience.

    I chose this place based only on their deal 50% off for a party of two on your birthday. It couldn't have been a luckier choice for me! It was a beautiful restaurant; upscale decor, fine dining menu, even a dessert and cigar lounge called "Le Dolce Vita" located downstairs from the main dining area. The staff, from the hostess, to our waiter, the bus boy and the dessert and cigar waitress in the lounge, were exceptionally nice and courteous. They took their restaurants motto of going above and beyond and pampering their patrons seriously. I highly recommend this place, if you can afford 4 star steak house prices. The food and the service is worth every penny!

    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!

    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.

    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

    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!
