It was our 33rd anniversary and we wanted a fun dinner with our family. Chop did everything to make it special. Hab, our waiter, was attentive, and all the staff were lovely. The food was delicious, served in a timely manner and all absolutely correct. At the end of dinner they made us a lovely dessert, wishing us a happy anniversary. They also gave us a card signed by all the staff - really nice touch!

Excellent dinner! We went here for Mothers' Day and it was perfect. Aside from having Mothers' Day cards available, they also gave all moms a small potted plant to take home (which was a very nice touch!). Service was outstanding, friendly, efficient, responsive to needs.

Two minor issues. A cracked glass that was taken care of immediately and the bread did not arrived with the soup as it was still in the oven. However, when it came it was delicious and very fresh. The food was excellent all around and the drinks were also very good. Nice relaxed meal and I will be back.

Service was great, our food came in a timely manner and the steaks were cooked perfectly. Nothing but praise, except one tiny thing. The Moscow Mule was said to be and is supposed to be in a copper cup, it had copper on the outside however clearly stainless steel.

The food was nicely seasoned and good in general. The steaks tend to come out a little more cooked than what you ask for. So medium came out closer to medium well, medium well is more like well done. However, a medium steak came out as well done but the manager offered either to do another one or not charge for the one we got. It's a nice offer that many restaurants don't make anymore. We also got complimentary desserts for all four of us because they had no baked potatoes for three of us. So, not perfect but they certainly made it up to us with great customer service! Will try this restaurant again in the near future!

We were greeted by a great hostess when we arrived and seated immediately as per our reservation. We were taken to a booth but requested a table instead and they accommodated us without any problems at all. The server was friendly, attentive, and told us about specials of the day etc. She then left us to decide upon our orders with plenty of time to peruse the menu.
She did come back to tell us that she had just been told that one item was not available from their select menu. It was a crab grilled cheese sandwich. The select menu she had explained were items that they were trying out in this particular branch that may eventually go on the menu for all CHOP restaurants. We sort of questioned that on a menu with different items that included crab, how you could not have crab, cheese, and bread in the kitchen to prepare this particular item. But, we did not ask her to explain further, we just went with it. They serve a Blue Cheese Wedge Salad and one person at our table asked if she could get a half-order. She was told it didn't come in a half-order which was disappointing. Another person ordered their meal and was offered the Blue Cheese Wedge Salad as a side. We did question this and the server was kind enough to check with the kitchen and was told that it was the same size wedge. We would like to suggest that the Wedge Salad be added to the side menu and maybe a quarter of a head of lettuce instead of a half could be served as the side. These were the two little things we found interesting but all-in-all it was a great meal and a great experience. We would definitely go back. I had the Chili Garlic Prawns and they were fantastic.

We had a very poor server. We barely saw her. She bought the wrong sides, which another server replaced for us. We ran out of wine half way through dinner and no one came to ask if we wanted more drinks. We sat with dirty dishes on our table and no dessert menu for 20 minutes after we had completed our meals. We finally cleared our own plates to the end of our table, which another server cleared and the brought us a dessert menu, and took our order. Finally saw our server again when she brought the bill. Very disappointing experience.

Enjoyed a petite filet Mignon with King crab - cooked perfectly, seasoned perfectly excellent! My vegetables however were a little too crisp - beets and green beans but that’s a personal preference. They were seasoned great. My new favourite place for steak

The Food was good and the service was friendly. The only proble was that the service was slow and we were told it was because she was swamped. There were only a couple of tables with at most 4 people, swamped is not what we saw.

We had our Valentine's Day dinner at Chop and were so impressed we needed to return.
We had an enthusiastic waiter named Hab who was training a new co-worker. He knew the menu well.
We started with the lobster scallop and gorganzola dip. It was yummy but don't expect to choke on large pieces of lobster or scallops.
My wife ordered the mushroom ravioli which she really enjoyed and shared a little with me.
I ordered the rib and cajun chicken combo. Chop is not known for their ribs but I was impressed. Delicious sauce and fall off the bone tender. The cajun chicken has a nice kick to it. I am not sure what they do to the mashed potatoes but they are creamy smooth and delicious.
We enjoyed glasses of red wine with our meal but we were too full for dessert.
