Bloomington Chop House Ratings and Reviews
Nice ambiance, nice staff, server was ok but could have paid us a little more attention. The surf and turf was a great price, the brussel sprouts could have been cooked longer and they didnt have much flavor. The filet was medium rare when asked for medium well, they put it in the microwave to finish cooking it then a different person came by and asked how the "re-fire" was... unusual for someone to use a kitchen/cook term to a customer (we knew what she meant cuz we work in the industry). The drinks were good, but we were not asked if we wanted another. Also the server practically threw the steak knife at us so she could get to her next table. Overall pretty good... we might go back, but not soon.
Host, hostess, support staff were all apathetic in their efforts. There was no friendliness or care in greeting, seating, serving or leaving. Ran out of water for a while, service on dessert was really slow. Apple crisp obviously re-heated at least once (maybe more). Left with a bill of $102 with tax and tip. Felt like the experience was worth half of that - max. I will activity suggest friends do not visit.
I went with a friend to try out the Chophouse for Resturant Week and was not disappointed in our experience there.
We sampled the crab cake and french onion soup for starters. Both were very delicious though the soup was perhaps a little too hot coming out. I would still highly recommend both but perhaps start by sharing the crab cake and then the soup afterwards.
For entrees we had the salmon and Filet with the mac and cheese add on. The bottom melted cheese on the mac and cheese was very hot again but it was delicious. Both entrees were done with care and precision.
Finally for the dessert portion we shared the apple crumble and flourless espresso torte. These were a resounding success to put a bow on the whole meal especially the torte which was both of our favorites. The best i could explain it was like the softest fudge you could imagine with a hint of espresso to give you a pick up so you don't fall asleep at the table in happiness.
This was my second time to dine here. Very nice that it was in the hotel as we were able to host a business dinner and not have to drive anywhere after. A little on the pricey side given some of the other options available in the area. The steaks were very good, the halibut was not as good as I had hoped. Overall though I would go back and would recommend.
The food was fantastic. One of the best steaks I've had in Minneapolis. The service however was annoying. Our waitress was overly attentive and kept apologizing for little things. She also kept commenting on our dietary restrictions. It was just uncomfortable. We'll try it again and hopefully get a less aggressively attentive server. Again, the food was GREAT, hence the 4 star overall rating.
This is an excellent restaurant especially if you like large portions. My husband had the prime rib and it must have been 1 1/2 pounds of meat. Excellent taste. I had the duck breast and the portion was also huge, but again, excellently prepared. They are not bashful about prices (loaded baked potato $9) but for special occasions it is a great place to go. Service was very pleasant with just the right amount of attention. One little disappointment-When I made the reservation I did mention it was for a birthday, but no one made any reference to it that the entire evening. Guess they don't read the comments. In fact, they were surprised we even had a reservation. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Our waiter Denny was great, He explained the menu choices, and the "favorites ", checked back with us like clockwork and was very polite, professional and knowledgeable.
we both had the 14Oz Ribeye, which was very tender and flavorful, mashed Yukon's and Asparagus. which were both great accompaniments to the steaks. we followed up by sharing a Crème Brule and Coffee.
couldn't have been any better !
Do not arrive for brunch after 1 pm. The food was all dried out on the hot bar. The famous donut bar was empty and not replenished. The fresh fruit ,shrimp cocktail, salad bar, smoked salmon and TOAST were the saving grace. The prime rib was also good. Omelets were not worth the effort.
We went for Mother's Day brunch after reading reviews that seemed surprisingly good for a restaurant in a hotel in the middle of the suburbs. We were really happy! The place itself is quite nice, the staff were good, and the food was all excellent. We were surprised by how quiet and comfortable it was.
The food was very good (Easter brunch) and seemed to be replenished often. Our waitress was very attentive and refilled our water and coffee often. One thing is, we were not offered any other beverages, like a mimosa or juice. There was a good variety of food offered, and it was spread out so it didn't get overly crowded at any one spot or have a long line. The one complaint I would comment on is that the brunch was quite a bit more expensive than most Easter brunches . Otherwise I have no complaints and would probably return again.
Tried their date night. We were seated at tables, pushed together, with a 1/2 " gap between heights, making it difficult for the middle person to eat. Steak was disappointing. It was very thin and not very tasty. This is the highest priced date night I've encountered in the Twin Cities, and I expected a higher quality meal.
