We had our Thanksgiving dinner and the food was good ... not spectular but fine, The waiter was not attentive to the point we has to keep asking for service. He spent his time talking to people at another table. We will not be back!

We dined on Thanksgiving and were pleased with our seating and server. Everyone thought the food was very good. We really enjoyed our meal. The only negative was you could not get seconds on anything. The meal was served family style which was great but the portion size on everything except the turkey was quite meager for three adults.

Not as good as it had been. Menu has changed (not for the better) and service has declined. Always looked forward to going to Five West when in Rochester for business … won’t be going back … not the restaurant it used to be.

The service was fantastic, the waiter was attentive and visited regularly to make sure we were ok. The food was more or less average which disappointing for the price. The dry aged steak definitely didn’t seem like it was dry aged.

Good old fashions and has great wine. The sides were all good as well. Went with the lobster Mac, mashed potatoes and mushrooms.

Excellent food and drinks. Our waitress Jennifer was very professional and friendly. We had great service. Michelle recommended a great bottle of wine. The steak was done to perfection. The French silk pie was by far the best we have ever had. This was our first visit and we will be back!

Overpriced steak house and we do not recommend. Every steak house we've visited, provides bread and butter ahead of dinner, however, we had to pay $7 for it. Two different menus which was very confusing and prices were not honored on Happy Hour. It appeared our over-cooked filet mignon steaks were originally a 8 oz. steak that was cut in half, horizontally, and then served in two pieces (one to me and the other to my husband) and the price for each steak meal was $45. Definitely not worth it.

It's a shame because this steak house used to be on my top 5 list --it's gone downhill!

The beef tenderloin was about 5/8” thick & had no sear on it. It was tender and done medium rare, as ordered, but was flavorless. The garlic mashed potatoes & roasted carrots were decent. My wife had the tomato bisque and a salad which were both pretty good. The cheesecake was quite good and the service was prompt, friendly & engaging. The place got a bit noisy when it started to get about 30% full. It would likely be hard to maintain a conversation with the dining room moderately busy.

Server/chef was uncooperative with request for small substitution. Risotto was mediocre at best. Salmon was well cooked, and not overdone at all.

We made reservations for breakfast. Upon arrival we’re told they don’t actually have the breakfast at chophouse anymore and had us sit at Olives, which is basically the hotel bar. There was 10 or so items to choose from vs the menu we looked at for the chophouse with much more. The manager tried to make up for it with a free drink, but we were disappointed. Since it was a holiday, we knew we wouldn’t be able to go anywhere else without a reservation so we stayed. Just know that if you make a breakfast reservation at Chophouse, you will be in the hotel bar with minimal options and not actually at the Chophouse restaurant.

We would recommend for other meals but not breakfast.

While the food was good, the service and the drinks were mediocre. I had high hopes for this restaurant, I think the specific cocktails we ordered needed to be made differently, something was a bit off about them. I will definitely try this establishment again when the return to service post pandemic gets a bit smoother.

The filet was cooked and seasoned perfectly, the Brussel sprouts are a must order and the shrimp scampi was excellent. I also appreciated the spacing of guests and the use of masks and covid precautions by the staff.

We went there on Easter. The food offered was good, however, it was not advertised well that there would be a limited menu. I was happy with the service and the food offered was of very good quality. The staff is also very nice. I would have just liked to have known or had it more clearly publicized that the menu would be limited on Easter.

thank you,

Restaurant was pretty empty likely due to the Coronavirus situation. It was a bit frustrating that we were seated next to a noisy table when here were ample other tables open away from that group. Food was very good and service was attentive without hovering over us.

Service is always the right combination of attention and being left to visit uninterrupted. Sausage and duck gumbo was very good. Everything I've ever eaten has been fantastic.

I booked this restaurant for my wife’s birthday. It was clean, but empty on a Friday night which was slightly concerning. We waited awhile to be seated and for the server to come by. We ordered half a dozen oysters for our appetizer and they didn’t seem fresh. Very chewy, no flavor, something off about them. We stopped eating them and left one on the plate. I told the server and asked her when they were delivered. She said ‘frequently.’ I laughed a little in surprise and asked her what that meant. She said they are flown in from Louisiana. I told her they weren’t fresh.

My wife ordered fish which came and was very flaky and cooked properly, but covered in oil. It was inedible. She told the server and took it back to the kitchen.

Eventually the manager came by and apologized for the fish and said she could take that off our bill ‘because it wasn’t eaten’ but would leave the oysters on.

It was definitely the worst birthday dinner ever. Not recommended and not worth the money.

Service was excellent. Well laid out and comfortable location. Food was a definite “meh.”

The broiled oysters were well browned but cold on the inside, like they’d been frozen or something, an excellent presentation though.

The walleye was pretty bad. No spices at all. Just lightly breaded. It was a good piece of fish but just “meh”
in prep.

The sides were all good and my wife’s filet was very well prepared and an excellent cut of meat.

This place seems to have some good points, service, quality meats, but they need to up their chef game
on their entrees big time. For half the price you can get better food right up the street on France.
