Not impressed. Food was good but very expensive for New Orleans, Service was not good, not letting any of us sit down until the entire party arrived was inconvenient. In a city with so many other great options I won’t be back.

The steak and sides were great but the lobster was not good at all. Love the service and ambiance but didn’t feel the lobster was worth the extra 40 dollars. It was our wedding dinner so I was hoping for some better seafood with my meal.

Most of our meal was awesome. Carpaccio always a winner. Everyone ‘s steak perfectly done. They had 2 large tables and were off. Happened before when we were there w/lg. parties. That is tough on restaurants but should get some advice from somewhere to help . My lyonnaise potatoes were burned and one of cocktails undrinkable. Taken off our bill with smile. MAJOR PROBLEM: smokers going out back door constantly and holding door open in freezing weather! Not going back until spring.

The Wife and I LOVE Chophouse. Since we discovered it, we have not visited New Orleans without visiting Chophouse. It is my favorite restaurant in the country and serves the best steak I have ever eaten. On this visit our favorite server --promoted a couple of visits/months or years ago to manager (or is she the assistant manager?)-- recognized us and welcomed us, and made a point to come by our table and chat with us, which was very courteous and unexpected.
When you visit, have a raspberry sour (or three).

Another great meal at this consistently great restaurant. Service was great (April our primary server was very good and we enjoyed talking to her; Rashon (sp.?) also was very friendly and attentive). We had redfish almandine and baked shrimp, with sides of onion rings and Caesar salad; wonderfully prepared and served very hot.
The vocalist/pianist playing in the bar added to a great ambience. Great night. Highly recommend.

This is our second time visiting Chophouse, New Orleans. We were here almost a year ago and loved it. Although there are a ton of great restaurants to choose from in this area, we opted to come back to Chophouse for one of our dinners this visit. We like to choose different restaurants that we haven't visited, but we couldn't resist returning to this one. And we were extremely happy that we did! Our visit here again reminded us exactly why we loved it the first time around! The service, the food and the atmosphere are top-notch. We are debating whether we should visit it one more time before our vacation is over!

Steak was good but having A1 steak sauce is unacceptable when going to a very expensive steak house. The wait staff was fantastic, but as people who frequent steak houses often the food was grossly overpriced

We had a great experience at Chophouse. We had reservations for 5. We arrived at 4:50 and had to wait about 15 minutes to sit due to staff meeting (just opening). So we waited at the bar area which was quite small. But the bar attendee made our drink very quickly. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and quick. We ordered the bacon appetizer— amazing. Three in our party ordered Steak Delmonico and one ordered the Red Fish with crab topping. We all agreed that our steaks were amazing— cooked to perfection! However, the fish left a little to be desired— lacked spice and flavor. We ordered Cheesecake with berries for dessert. It was definitely not up to the same standard as our food. The atmosphere was quiet and romantic. Due to price— I could see how this could be a once in a year visit. But overall, very good!

We were hoping for one of the best steaks in NOLA but this place fell short. Ruths Chris, Charlies, Mortons & Dickies much better. All 3 of our filets were disappointing. The "char" was borderline burnt tasting and cut didn't seem to be prime. We didn't care for their version of cream spinach. The mushrooms & bake potato were good. Admittedly I am a steak snob and perhaps this was a bad night but we won't be back.

Manager not very friendly and accomodating. When we arrived we were seated against a wall . All patrons were against the wall, even though there were other tables available. We booked a 9:45 dinner. We asked concierge to move to a non-crowded area. She got the manager and he gruffly stated loudly and rudely, " We have closed those sections and we would not want to have someone have to do extra cleaning." Now no matter which table we sat at, someone would still have to clean that table. Our table area was barely able to fit our party and ALL tables against the wall were full of patrons except for the one we were seated at. No sense and no customer service by not accomodating our request to move to a different table where there was more room. No matter where we sat, someone was going to have to clean that table. All other "closed section tables" had to be cleaned after the previous parties left. Then the manager told us in a gruff tone that the kitchen closes in ten minutes. The server said that she would get our orders in and not to worry. CRAZY MANAGER with no common sense or customer service in mind!!!

Waiter was appropriately attentive. Steak was excellent and cooked to exactly our specifications for all members in our party of four. Serving portions for sides are easily two person servings even with the "individual size". Order was on our table quickly. Manager made the rounds, was professional, and courteous. Eight thumbs up from our party of four!

We celebrated a birthday at the Chophouse. Service was excellent! Steaks even better! We split the 16 oz. NewYork Strip cooked perfectly, and the sides were delicious as well. Giant baked potatoes, giant onion rings, delicious creamed spinach - all sharing sizes.
