I and my date were disappointed in the steak. Having not eaten there before i didnt know what to expect. My date has eaten there before and said the steak was not as good as before. The steak was tough and heavily charred.

Ahhh, Chophouse NOLA you never disappoint. Fantastic meal shared with family and friends. I visit this fine establishment every time I am in NOLA. Everything is always cooked perfectly, timed perfectly, and served perfectly. The food is always piping hot! Cant wait for my next visit to NOLA so I can go again!

We shared the porterhouse which was one of the best steaks we have eaten. Well seasoned and seared to a crispy crust and perfectly med rare. Beautifully restored bldg with exposed brick walls and a talented pianist added to the comfortable environment

 (Chicago)·Dined on November 10, 2017

The nicest word I can use to describe this meal is underwhelming. My husband and I both got the "meat and 3 sides" lunch. It's a great concept, one main dish and 3 side dishes each on their own little plate and those four plates on a large plate. I liked the presentation. The food however was a different story. The roasted cauliflower was cold and limp. It literally tasted like it had been roasted the night before and left out. The grilled asparagus was just lukewarm and overdone. The smoked gouda mac n cheese was slightly warm, but it was very bland. Smoked gouda is delicious so I'm not sure how they were able to make it so flavorless. The bbq pork slider with coleslaw came with two very dull, limp dill pickles on it instead of coleslaw. The bun was decent, but the bbq was about as appealing as something you'd find at a gas station store. There is so much good food in NOLA and this place had good reviews, but it was definitely NOT good. Without going into detail, my husband's meal was no better. And he got the meat and 3 sides too. All different than mine, but equally lackluster.

Thanks for the wonderful meal and service. Great steaks and appetizers, nice wines. The staff is awesome. Hans, Natalie, Reed, and the Hostess were wonderful and just special people. Can't say enough good things about Chop House. The lady and gentlemen playing the piano were GREAT! The bartenders were awesome as well. You will enjoy and should try the Chop House.

Dined at Chophouse NOLA on Nov. 7. Food was excellent ... and such large portions! Chophouse salad is superb, with the best Bleu cheese! Filet mignon was tender and perfectly cooked. Redfish Almandine was delicious (though much too large a portion). Creamed spinach and loaded baked potato both outstanding. And real key lime pie ... fabulous! And, the rarest find of all: service that was perfectly attentive without hovering.

Spent the weekend in New Orleans. After having the local creole/Cajun fare, we wanted a real nice upscale dinner. This place fit the bill and was walking distance from the Marriott Hotel(s).

My wife had a glass of Merlot and I had a Tito’s Dirty Martini which was executed superbly. We shared a ceasar salad. My wife order an 8 oz ribeye and I had the 22 oz on the bone accompanied with creamed spinach and a baked potato on steroids. That potato must have been 3 lbs. unbelievable.

The decor was clean modern Steakhouse. The service was attentive personable and enjoyable. I highly recommend.

Enjoy

This was the best dinner we had in NOLA. The food amazing. We heard the stone crab just arrived on October 15th., that just happened to be our 34th wedding anniversary! We walked in and the atmosphere was so welcoming and l loved seeing the old brick thru the plaster. We were served a complimentary glass of champagne 🥂 l thought that was so nice. We ordered the stone crab 🦀 these claws were the size of my hands. They were huge and the meat so sweet we ended up ordering 4 we were stuffed. The service was perfectly timed. Our server was wonderful she came and made sure all our needs were Med in a timely matter. Thank you for the best anniversary dinner we had there.

Took my girlfriend here for our one year anniversary and was not disappointed. Made reservations week or two in advance. Was seated at a corner table which in my opinion was the best table since I'm choosy about where I sit. The waiter was very quick and professional. The parking was a breeze as there is a lot across the street. (Paid parking) It was a bit noisy but great Atmosphere. Over all pleased with the experience.

Typically when Chophouse is in the name, I think very high end and top quality. The restaurant was beautiful with the exposed brick. The wait staff was attentive but a little clumsy when it came to pouring water and serving plates etc. I ordered a salad that a noticeable amount have browning edges so it was obviously not fresh or inspected very well. My friend and I ordered the Filet Oscar style. He was Med rare and I was Med but was undercooked. The waiter did not ask anyone to cut the middle before disappearing.

Overall the atmosphere was great and the food had great flavor, but they just need more attention to detail when you are paying over $100 per person.

On par with other great steak houses of Nola. Stone crabs and fried lobster tail were more than pleasurable. NY strip was very flavorful, tender and well cooked. Staff was very attentive. It’s a coin toss of whether I’ll return here or mr Johns next... but I will definitely return. Oh...go early and sit with the pianist for a drink. Great ambiance.

We had two issues that were avoidable. One was that the price of the seafood platter was not discussed when we ordered it and it came out to close to $200 for five people. It was very good but it should have been discussed when we ordered it. Other issue was once the bill was split the recommended tip amount was not so we both put down the full amount. The staff were super polite in pointing this out to us as we were leaving so kudos for honesty!

Overall very disappointed. Because I had an early reservation got there when restaurant opened and waiting for my guest at bar. Drinks were well made. Five of my eight guest arrived.

Because they were Hungary I asked to be seated so I could start us with some appetizers. I was told to wait a moment. Then after several minutes. I checked back. I was told in a bit of a rude tone. All of your guest need to be here to be seated. Seeing as though there were two tables with guest in the empty restaurant I was surprised. She then walk off.

I considered leaving to go some place else but I had thee guest in route. So we sat and ordered. (No appetizers, missed revenue) and our food came on saucers. I have never seen a 22 Oz bone in ribeye so small. Every steak looked miniature. Mine was over cooked. Over all it left something to be desired.

Dessert was very good. Service was good. But the over all experience left a lot to be desired. With all the choices in New Orleans. I will not be back.

Went there with a friend before going to a show in the quarter. Easy walking distance from the quarter. The service was excellent. The filet was great. The redfish amandine was great. How's this for a complaint - there were more onion rings in a small order than we could eat. Wish we were bigger eaters because some of the appetizers and desserts looked awesome. Hope we can return in the near future.
