The noise level was way too loud, there was a rowdy family of 5 next to us, parents did nothing to keep them quiet or even attempt to.
Initial service was quick but had to wait 15 minutes before we saw our server to ask for a dessert menu, then 10 minutes to get it

I went to chop previously with my family and they treated me very well. The service was good and everything was fine. I went back a second time with my friend because I had a good experience from the first time I was there. This time I went there with my teenage friend. what i thought was the service was extremely poor and how they treated us was disrespectful. They hardly came to our table and did not even care to serve us. I felt like that they didn't treat us right because we were two teenage males and they were expecting a low tip. I booked the reservation as a special birthday occasion and when I got their not a single worker asked if it was any of ours birthdays. I just hated how they treated us poorly and hardly served us because there was a huge difference from when I went with my parents for my birthday. Definitely not happy :(

Prime Rib was terrible, tough fully of sinus Manager stated that a lot patrons had the same comments... But yet they continued to serve it. They made no offers to compensate for the inedible meat...They need to check out with their suppliers why the cuts they are using are so tough....Won’t be back here anytime soon

We booked the table to celebrate my Mom’s 85th Birthday. From start to finish our server, Jessica, was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. She answered all of our many questions regarding food sensitivities even going so far as to ask the kitchen the brand of the wonderful gluten-free roll they brought my Mom. Although my Cajun Chicken and the fries were extremely over salted, the rest of the meals were excellent! My ribs were tender and juicy, the salmon was perfectly cooked, the burger was massive and savoury, and the steak was the crowning jewel! It was perfectly seasoned and grilled to a sumptuous, rich medium-rare.
As a final touch, Jessica brought out a complimentary Creme Brûlée with a birthday message written on the plate, and a birthday card signed by all of the staff. These personal touches meant so much to my Mom.
We will definitely be back to try another steak and some of the desserts!

The food was amazing. The service was also great. It was my wife and i’s anniversary and we received a free glass of really good champagne! Their house wine was a really good Cab Sav. from Italy. The steak could have been a better cut however the flavour was good. The escargot was good but the edge would go to the Keg. Overall experience was really good!

We love eating at Chop. The only issue I had with our V-Day dinner was that we were seated in the bar area and the table was a bit squished. It wasn't quite big enough for two people on either side. Other than that we loved the special menu, lots of fun V-Day special details and our server was fantastic.

The Service is always top notch at the Chop House, very attentive wait staff, food arrives as you ordered it. Yesterday was Valentines Day, so we got two flutes of free Champagne.
The waiter brought a complimentary fruit plate for my daughter, so she was not hungry and waiting.
I ordered the Prime Rib Medium size, excellent cut, the only complaint I do have is that the veggies were not cooked properly, the Broccolini was overcooked a bit too soft, and the beets, I was glad to see those, were undercooked and a bit solid.

This is a typical chain restaurant with mediocre food. We happened to have a very nice and attentive server. She was the highlight of the visit. The burger was over salted; the onion rings were hard; the lobster pasta was in a very ordinary marinara sauce; and the yorkie sliders were passable but nothing special. All of the dishes seemed to be prepared offsite with finishing in the restaurant. Nothing seemed prepared from scratch. Everything was edible but unremarkable.

Next time it will be a "super pass".

We've been to Chop a couple of times and found it just okay. The food was good, but not great and the kitchen made mistakes on the orders each time. We decided to give it one more try and our opinion was unchanged. The waiter on this occasion took a very hands off approach where we had to call him over to order drinks and again to order our meal. Overall we were not impressed.
