Service was great! Loved our waitress, Kelly! They had a singer in the lounge and she was really good. Great atmosphere for a romantic or cozy dinner. The crab appetizer we had was so fresh and amazing!

The aged beef cuts were very falvorful. The "Pittsburgh style " char was amazing. Every steak was cooked perfectly with a nice caramelized char on the outside. The fish was also excellent.

Highly recommended.

From Texas. Celebrated my birthday in 2015 and 2017. Plan on returning in 2019! Service was great. Sea Bass and Rib Eye were cooked to perfection. The crab bisque is my favorite!

I am a foodie and, of all the restaurants I've enjoyed in the city of New Orleans, The Chophouse stands permanently in a class by itself. I mean this literally, not just as a figure of speech. This fine dining experience has no competitors anywhere. Valet staff handle my exotic car respectfully and protect it. My reservation is always honored and I am seated immediately. Waitstaff have mastery over the menu and politely deliver wise suggestions and guidance about my choices. They run the table expertly but without hovering and they telepathically anticipate my needs if I so much as turn my head.
The Chophouse is perhaps one of the single most expensive places in the city, and yet I choose it at least once or twice a year and I don't count the cost when I order or bring treasured guests with me as a memorable treat. I've never had buyer's remorse and always feel that they've delivered on what I paid for. If you go only once in your life, the memory of it will have a special place in your vault. Go. Go. Go.

Arrived 10 mins before 9pm online reservations and did not sit down till almost 9:15 not to mention the hostess was not friendly. The bar was overcrowded and noisy. When we finally sat down it was in the middle of restaurant right by the isle after putting in the notes that it was a date night. So the hostess, bar area, and sitting location (not intimate at all) were a disappointment... however the food and waiters did not disappoint at all. Steaks were very good $$$$ but good and the waiters were curtious and helpful. I would go again perhaps but only for the food. If it’s another intimate date night then I’m going somewhere else.

The food here is outstanding. We don't eat meat only fish but the steaks look great and all their fish dishes are fabulous as are the vegetables and desserts. Small piano bar with good music and wine list. Always a great experience.

Really nice restaurant. The steak was perfectly cooked and the side of mushrooms and onion and the baked potato was very good. It would have been nice with some more vegetarian options on the menu - the ongoing dilemma when you are a vegetarian and your husband loves a steak... :)

 (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.
