The finest steaks, perfect value meal with lobster, shrimp and lump crab, and a killer banana cream pie...

Not worth it. There were multiple flies attacking me at the table which ruined the evening. The garage there wasn't usable, it was for a non existent valet parking. I wouldn't ever come here again, over priced. There are much better options.

My server Walter was fantastic. Always timely with checking up on us, and was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Gave great recommendations, we all ordered what he suggested and everyone loved their meal. I will definitely be requesting him again because his service was a big factor in how much we all enjoyed our meal!!

Always have a great meal and service at Chop's!! Only complaint was we were supposed to get a half order of Mac and Cheese (for our grandson), and a full order of Lyonnaise potatoes for us. It was reversed, but other than that, everything was great!! His birthday, and they offered a nice choice of desserts for him. Also, unlike a lot of restaurants, the coffee was great!!

Our Martinis were tasty. The crab cake was delicious. My wife tried the fried lobster tail but would prefer it traditionally broiled in the future. My sea bass was bland. The sommelier recommended good wines. They surprised us with an anniversary dessert.

I reserved a table of 4 for myself, my wife and clients from New York City. The service was good. The food however was not what I expected. We ordered two ribeyes. I asked for medium rare and it came with a barely pink center. My guest found his steak overdone as well. We regularly dine at various steakhouses in town and fort Lauderdale. The ribeye was by far the worst I have had.

At the conclusion of our meal, I paid the check as I am not in the habit of complaining about the food. I did not want to make a scene in front of my guests. Today, as I glanced at the check again before filing it, I noticed that I was charged for 2 Stella Artois beers when I only had 1.

This was a disappointing experience but what I felt most distasteful was being overcharged.

Very good. All $50 steaks are not worth the price, but this one was excellent. My steak was undercooked and they took it back and cooked it to my specifications and brought out fresh sides. French Onion Soup was one of the best I’ve had. Good strong drinks. I would definitely return.

Worst experience was my husband’s birthday and we had to leave as they could not even get the salad correct for my husband. The seating was horrible it was too loud and our evening was ruined for his birthday. This used to be a great place. It no longer is and we will never go back.

It was wonderful! Moved our table (with no problem) to a quieter table. Food was delicious and perfect! My friend thought it was an absolute miracle how we could share a steak (mine was medium rare and hers was medium/well) and both were PERFECT!!!! The other person had crab cakes and said they were the best ever!!! I LOVE Chops!!!

All great except waiter. I usually bring my own wine and do not think he liked it. Made a few stupid comments about the wine, was condescending and a bit arrogant. He missed the extra tip I usually give when I bring my own wine to a restaurant.

Every steak was prepared perfectly. When we shared a porterhouse for two, they even cooked each half to different temperatures for us - amazing.

Our server was extremely attentive to providing options given I have celiacs disease. Love they have rice flour as an alternative. Food was delicious from appetizers through to dessert. Way too much food and the best bargain is their pre-fix dinner

LONA was a well-trained and fun server to have. She was very knowledgeable of all food and preparation and suggestively sold us along our dinner. We had a great experience for our 31st anniversary and would highly recommend the restaurant with Lona as the server.

Very expensive. Service is average. Asked our waiter for the ceviche appetizer. He said they took it off the menu, which we knew, but the past two times, they made it special for us. He couldn't be bothered to ask the chef. We ordered steak for two which was overly drenched in butter & grizzly with fat. Sent it back. Stick with fish, meat is not quality.
Dissapointed.

First of all I was looking forward to a cold beer before dinner and what I got was room temperature. My wife ordered the Dover Sole to be cooked dry w no oil and the server insisted that it should be sautéed in olive oil. It was plated table side and was so oily that she could not eat it. I had the crispy “lightly” battered lobster tail. It was a mess......it had a 1/4 in coating of batter on it. I literally had to peel of the breading to get to the Lobster.
When dinner was over I had to send of the busboys to get my check because after turning down coffee or desert our server disappeared for 15 min. He was not tending to other guests because there were only 4 other tables left in dining room.
We definitely will not be returning to Chops in Boca

Our previous visit was described as worst dining experience from folks who enjoy dining and have done so around the world. Actual miserable service and something wrong in the kitchen. Can accept that Chops had booked a huge party and were overwhelmed but should have closed the restaurant for non-party diners. Basically ruined my wife's birthday and it was two years before we came back. This visit was again for my wife"s birthday and we only agreed because we were sharing the evening for our friends 49th anniversary. Where the previous meal had been "AWFUL" in all respects, this meal was "FIVE STAR" from cocktails thru dessert with attentive and classy service and left us with nothing but praise for a memorable meal. I have been spreading the news that Chop's is the place for the steakhouse experience. Bravo.

Requested a quiet area, got seated next to the waiter station, when there were other tables available. Requested to be moved, and all of our 'options' were near such. Fried lobster morsels and wine were fantastic, and that's where the meal derailed. Our steaks were out very quickly, like too quickly, and one was cooked perfectly, and the other was Rare to Medium Rare to the Medium Well that was requested. The steak went back, and a few minutes later it came back a solid Medium. It went back again, while the rest of our party ate it's meal. The steak finally came back, and you guessed it,, it was BEYOND Well done, and had been microwaved. The plate was scalding, and the burned beef was steaming for minutes...the kind you get from a microwave, not a hot grill, even a 1700 degree grill. So, 1 for 4 cooking attempts at getting the proper temperature achieved, and we ate at completely different times...NOT a good experience.

I made this reservation on opentable, and noted that we were celebrating our anniversary, and would like to sit at a booth. We got there, and there was not hostess- then a waiter came over to seat us- looked up our reservation and asked us if we were celebrating anything- we said yes, and told him it was our anniversary. He then seated us at the very first table when you walk in- I asked for a booth- he looked around and seated us in a half booth half chairs (and the restaurant was not crowded- there were plenty of tables). We sat down- ordered and waited a very long time for bread. Food was fair- service fair. Very disappointed overall.
