Wonderful service & a very enjoyable meal. My steak was cooked perfectly, the veggies were tasty as well as the Caesar salad. My husband said his prime rib was the best he’s had in a long time.

The food is always very good but we found the service was above expectation, we had a very small issue with something forgot on one of our dinners & they not only brought out a side (with extra) but when I packed up part of my dinner they put even more in there. The staff was extremely nice. Such a great thing when you don't come across that in a lot of places anymore.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time for a date night. The food was very good, Hubby ordered the chop burger and fries which he loved. I ordered a chicken cobb salad which tasted good but it was so "normal" nothing fancy or unique about it, so i felt it was overpriced. The dessert was divine! The staff was delightful and super friendly. We will be back again just not for the salad!

Ate in the bar and it was super quiet so that was unexpected but very nice. The smoked rib eye was the best steak I’ve ever had. I would 10/10 recommend.

Always a delicious meal and beautiful ambiance at Chop! It is impossible for me to order anything other than their amazing Chop salad with steak. Service is pleasant. First time bringing our kids and they were well looked after with a nice snack tray while we waited for our meal. Will definitely be back!

I ordered a top sirloin steak ($29) and it came overcooked, dry about 1/2 " thick and looked to be about a 4 oz steak and they claimed it's supposed to be a 7oz steak. It lacked flavor. The mashed potatoes were not bad. The waiter only came once to check on the meal and I had not bit into my steak. I expressed my diapproval and they comped my meal.

We chose Chop to celebrate our 11th anniversary on Saturday. We've been here for a few anniversaries and birthdays before. As usual, the food was great and the service was amazing. Our waitress even handed us a Happy Anniversary card at the end of the meal, signed by all the staff. It was such a sweet gesture. We have a birthday coming up later in the month, and we'll be going back!

Was going to book at The keg steakhouse, but ended up trying chop steakhouse to celebrate New Year's with my lovely girlfriend and was not disappointed with the atmosphere! Felt like high class dining with great staff that were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with our needs. Ordered speciality cocktails which we both were amazed by the quality and taste. If I could criticize... for the particular price point (which is more upscaled then some steakhouses) the steak itself could have been sized more appropriately to match the price considering we do live in Alberta and I'm assuming they source the steaks locally so prices could have reflected that with larger portions but overall great experience!

We knew it would be noisy and busy on New Years Eve but servers were attentive and the food arrived in good time. The on-tap cider didn’t taste right so they readily replaced it with a different drink. Met expectations and a good time was had by all.

On 30 December 2017, I ordered a steak sandwich - true rare - which was delivered medium/medium rare. The waitress didn’t even notice the error (lack of attention to detail). I didn’t bother saying anything because a Chop House ought to be able to cook a steak as requested. I’m an out of towner and I chose the restaurant because of its proximity to the theatre. I’ve visited a couple of times and my experience has been the same - although I had to the steaks I ordered back too. I would not recommend choosing steak; at least they prepared the Ahi (Tuna) to perfection.

We went for dinner for a friend's birthday and we had the Chop salad with steak - this was pretty much the best salad we've ever had! Definitely a must! Service wasn't 100%, as we did need to flag people down to refill our wine after waiting with empty glasses for quite awhile.
