This is one of the very best restaurants in Atlanta. White table cloths and candles with excellent service and great food. Obviously the Lobster is excellent. The steaks are just as good. I tend to get a lobster and steak.

My only complaint is the lack of enforcement of the dress code. This is a fine dining restaurant with a "business casual" dress code. Yet, there are people allowed in with faded denim jeans, sneakers and tee shirts. It's a bit of an insult to everyone who takes the time and effort to dress appropriately. Management should enforce their well known and published dress code.

Biggest issue is wait time with a reservation. Reservation at 630 and sat at 7. Not that busy.

THE NOISE WAS SO LOUD YOU COULD NOT EVEN HEAR MY WIFE TALK. WE WANTED A QUITE RELAXING EVENING AFTER A HDR WEEK AND WHAT WE GOT WAS ONE OF THE MOST HORRIBLE
DINNER EXPERIENCES WE HAVE EVER HAD. THE TABLE NEXT TO US WAS SO LOUD THEY WERE
LIKE SCREAMING TO EACH OTHE. WE ASKED OUR SERVER KEVIN IF HE COULD HELP AND IT WAS
NOTHING HE COULD DO.

While the food this evening fully met our expectation, the service was inexcusable. I've been dining at Buckhead Life Restaurants since childhood (I'm a native Atlantan and my family regularly dined at Pano's & Paul's and then each restaurant that followed). My husband and I continue to frequently dine at various Buckhead Life restaurants...we've been to Lobster Bar countless times since its opening over 20 years ago and always experience excellent service. Complete disappointment, particularly since it is our Anniversary and we just wanted a nice evening. No one ever asked about our meal, whether we wanted another cocktail which we did and never had the opportunity to order, and receiving the check took far too long, etc. I'll continue to dine at Chops. I'm parting ways with Lobster Bar.

We were celebrating my son's excellent report card....unfortunately my wife was not feeling well so it was just Dad and a 9th grader. The service was impeccable, the steaks the best I've had in years, and the maitre di made a point of coming over and making both of us feel proud of my son's accomplishments….including a complimentary dessert with "Congratulations" written on it.

Outstanding!

The food and service was outstanding! It was a great place to celebrate my birthday and if I wasn’t in such a great mood the couple dining next to us would have ruined my meal. They were so loud and drunk it was obnoxious. They were regulars from what we gathered but it was unacceptable. My husband and I could barely hear each other over there voices. That type of restaurant isn’t a place to sit and get drunk and talk unnecessarily loud.

My husband and I attended dinner as an anniversary gift to ourselves. I had heard a outs Chops and was excited to try it. Parking was easily accessible and reasonably priced. We made reservations and arrived on time and were seated promptly. Our waiter was attentive and not pushy. He provided us with options and asked if we had questions concerning the menu. I ordered a Chops Martini and it was superb. The bread was tasty (although I did not need it, lol) and the meal was beyond out expectations. My husband and I ordered the seafood trio, which included salmon, a crab cake and a lobster tail. All was cooked to perfection and properly seasoned. I ordered the asparagus, and my husband had the one pound baked potato. We enjoyed the meal from start to finish and were thoroughly satisfied with our experience at Chops. We will most definitely return.

Our dinner at Chops was a wonderful experience. We live about an hour and a half away so we don’t always get to enjoy everything Atlanta has to offer but, after hearing friends rave about Chops, we had to visit. The atmosphere was cozy and quiet (we had a late dinner at 8:30) and Kevin, our waiter, was attentive and knowledgeable and ensured that we had everything that we could want. The Dover sole was a stand-out!

Dinner for two. Called ahead, had reservation, told table was not ready when we got there. This has happened every time we go. I was shocked at the casual dress of the patrons, the excessive noise level which made everyone talk even louder, and the slow response in anyone coming to our table. and no bread until appetizers were served. Also very surprised at the cost per item continuing to go up ($29 for a bowl of bisque with lobster bits is ridiculous- my guest didn't realize there was an up charge for the bits). Crabcakes need seasoning. Plus side, assistant waiter refilled water regularly and main waiter pleasant, Fried lobster tail excellent. Been here for years, and this is the last time. Too many negatives to outweigh the food

Everything about our meal was ok except the steak. It was cooked to temperature but it was so charred that some bites tasted of only char instead of the excellent taste of the meat. It could have been a better meal with a little less char on the steak.

I have been to Chops numerous times and it has always been good. This time was not- starting with the table we were given, despite the request I made with my reservation 3 months before. 😳 I complained but was not happy with alternatives offered- 2 tables were great but “reserved.” I did not want my guest sitting with his back to the room, so I did. Why ask for requests if they aren’t honored? The food was lackluster- stuffed potato had skimpy toppings; my daughter’s crab cake was austerely presented on a white plate with nothing else. French fries of another guest were greasy. My own lobster tail had an odd texture. ? Very disappointing, overall. I will not be rushing back-

Every year my mother & I have a staycation at a Buckhead restaurant. We’ve been doing this for 6-7 years and switched from our typical restaurant to Chops because of a previous good experience. The food was phenomenal. The ambiance was a lot more modern and the experience was pretty seamless. My only issue was the waiter who was a bit condescending when I asked him to share what rums were on the bar. I guess he assumed I wanted bottom shelf rum (I do not) and literally said, I don’t know “what’s on the bar, I just know they are 34/35$ rums.” I OBVIOUSLY did not come to Chops for a budget meal. I asked him to share those rums and the most expensive ended up being $13.50. This is a special occasion so I didn’t let him ruin the experience BUT I hope management reads this because your servers have to do better.

Matt was our server--He did a fine job as did his assistant. --- We always enjoy dining at the Lobster bar . We also saw several tables of friends , which made it nice. Also the server who took care of us on our previous visit came over and said hello. The fact that he remembered us ,made us feel like part of the family.

Another awesome performance by the Chops team. Reception, bartenders, waiters and management all work together seamlessly to make this place the 1st class restaurant that it is. As a guest it all makes the experience appear effortless and relaxed because there are dozens of people working in the background to make sure every table has an exceptional dining event. Place was packed tonight for the start of the holiday week but service was prompt and courteous. Kitchen was equally exceptional - steaks were all cooked exactly as ordered and expected - no small feat on a super busy night in a large high end restaurant. Have to admit that I am somewhat biased as I have been a loyal Chops customer for over a decade. Hard to go elsewhere when the experience at Chops always exceeds the highest expectations.

We had an 8:00 reservation and arrived on time but had to wait for over an hour anyway . Staff was indifferent. Told them we were gluten free and ordered the Thai flavored salmon. It came without the sauce. Just a dry piece of fish with some pressed together rice. We asked about the sauce and were told that the sauce was not gluten free so they left it off. The Thai flavors were in the sauce. They never mentioned that to see if we still wanted it or order something else. By this time it was close to 10:00 and we were starving so just ate it.

To their credit they comped the meal but it was a very unpleasant experience. Further, this is not the fault of the restaurant but we were seated near a woman that had a very loud shrill voice and never stopped talking. It just added to the unpleasantness.

We reserve the same table nearly every year for our anniversary. When we got to the restaurant on time for our reservation, the restaurant had given the table to someone else. When I made the reservation, they promised me the table and even saw where it was noted in our history. Also flowers on the table as well. And then, we were seated in an alleyway of constant commotion. The Dover sole, which we love so much, was not presented the same way tableside. The evening just felt unattended and too busy for us.
