The place is too dark. What's the point to give coloring to the kids if they cannot see in the restaurant.
We have to use the phone flash light to see the menu. Luckily we are not the only table that use the flash light, we saw couple other tables are using the same tools.
My steak is over cook.

Food was great but our reservation and several other reservations that were waiting in the lobby got backed by up 25mins for Valentine's day. Was not happy about that.

Everything was ‘ok’, but I’ve come to expect better from Chop. I think they overbooked for Valentines, the food was nowhere near their usual standard. Skip the busiest nights would be my recommendation.

Overall not a very great dining experience. The food was good but not outstanding. The service was not very good at all. First, they over booked their reservations, leaving people waiting 20 - 30 minutes past the reservation time - very annoying. No apologies or concern for the long waits to the large number of people waiting in the lobby. Our server was nice but not great at her craft. I do not think that we would go back to Chop Chinook any time soon and we feel that we wasted our Valentine's dinner at Chop.

Enjoyed a Valentine's dinner with my family. My rib-eye steak was perfect, and my daughter absolutely loved her ribs (wishing she got the full rack, not half-rack). My other daughter had pasta and seemed happy. My wife had the Hunter's Chicken and loved all the sides (veg., potatoes, etc.), but she wasn't keen on the chicken itself... she left full but a wee bit disappointed in the chicken. Drinks were good (Greyhounds and Malbec), we didn't have room for desert except the ice cream my youngest go off of the kids menu. Overall a nice evening.

quiet on a Monday evening . Definitely suggest the tempura veggies as a starter...not your usual mainly battered veg but mainly veg in a light batter. Steaks are good, burgers are average. Service is good.

We had an awkward booth that made conversation with everyone impossible. I am not fond of the seating as most tables cannot accommodate more than four people. Our server was great and treated everyone including our seven year old with respect. Our group sampled across the menu. The sirloin with peppercorn sauce, the steak bites, the Chop Salad, the salmon, and a grilled chicken breast were great and the baked potatoes were delicious. The birthday cheesecake was beautifully presented and much appreciated.

Very disappointing. We thought this would be a higher end version of our usual favourite steakhouse, and we chose it because we were treating a friend visiting from Toronto. While the ambience was nice, the quality of the food was shockingly bad. All 3 of us had steaks and none of them were great (my filet mignon had gristle). Our guest's potatoes arrived cold and it took the kitchen way too long to get another protion out to her. My vegetables were also under-cooked. Wish we had just gone to the Keg.

I enjoyed the relaxed feel of this place . I am looking forward to returning. The Filet mignon was cooked to perfection and the Chocolate soufflé outstanding!. The other couple we were with were unsure of the escargot as the topping was unexpected but still enjoyed it. Service was well-timed and friendly, able to recommend dishes that were affordable."

Our server was very well informed about the menu and made recommendations on dishes and the “done ness” of the cuts of meat should be.
The meal was excellent for all 5 of us. We were there for a birthday and the special dessert was very nice.
Wines are well priced but not a huge selection. We were happy with our choice.

Went for our Christmas party (18) had a great time surprised that our servers had meals served within minutes of all- no one waiting too long - they took care of us well. Steaks were all perfect no complaints- sides veggies- a little undercooked for some - but we came for the steaks and all were impressed- THANK YOU - we will be back

Two requests from the waiter were forgotten and put a damper on the experience. Food was good but not as good as earl's or joeys. It wasn't a terrible experience, but the next time I'm taking a client out for dinner in that part of town, I'll likely just stick with Joeys. I know what I get there. Best of success to your business.

Wow! Our server was really incredible! She absolutely went out of her way to accommodate every person's specific requests in our large group and made an extra effort to make the two birthday celebrations special for two 10 yr olds! Handmade cards, dessert, and a little gift. We all loved the food and just can't say enough about the outstanding service - it is very rare to get this level of service!

Service was exceptional, also kindly taking into account two of our diners special needs.
Made our dining experience relaxing and enjoyable.

The ambiance was fantastic: the décor was tasteful and relaxing to the eye and the light levels had been selected with care. Our service was impeccable, our waiter was hilarious, professional, and his service was swift and informative as he regaled us with all the details on how Chop seeks to go above and beyond with everything from how the steaks are processed to how signature cocktails come to be. We both enjoyed the smoked ribeye which was melt-in-your-mouth amazing, bursting with flavour. I would recommend getting the brandy peppercorn sauce as that finishes everything off perfectly. You get exactly what you pay for here and we can't wait to come back for more!

Our server was nice and she was trying hard to keep up with all her tables. Our dish was served cold and our meat was not to the point we ordered. Our drinks took at least 20 mins to be served. I can honestly say that we have been to better steakhouses for a little more on the price and a way better overall experience. Also, for a new restaurant it seemed very old and it was also very quiet by 8pm on a Friday night.

Very pleasant experience at Chop Steakhouse & Bar today. Staff were all friendly and helpful as usual, the atmosphere relaxing, and the food was great. We both decided to have ribs this time and really enjoyed them. They were done just right. My husband tried truffle scalloped potatoes with his meal and was glad he did. We often dine at Chop Steakhouse for special occasions so we will definitely be back.
