The service was excellent, however the food wasn’t. We were really excited for an amazing dinner, especially based on reviews, but we were all extremely disappointed. Everything required additional salt or seasoning. The lobster tasted soapy and the sea bass was rubbery and overdone. The management and staff were extremely nice about the situation and did their best to accommodate us by offering to replace our food with other dishes and providing us a credit which is the reason I am giving a 2 star review and not a one star review. Sadly we will probably not be returning to Chops anytime soon.

Well I have always given Chops 5 stars across the board..this was awful in every way for a dinner for 2 over 200 dollars and I don't drink...first gave the waiter my order.. ceasear salad no anchovies..Im allergic..salad arrives with anchovies..my husband removed them and top layer of lettuce .
.we eat here when ever we are here from NYC...told the waiter I wanted lobster stuffed lobster..he told me smallest was a 2 pound..fine it arrived it was a steamed 2 lb lobster. He claimed he did not hear that.

Well maybe he. Could not as you could not hear anything.. the noise was beyond and then they started with blaring music in the bar and it was just loud and bad at that
Chops has been a favorite for many years but they could not handle the amount of people...oh the 2 lbs lobster was cold and tough

We have a regular table here but it's time to find a new favorite
Money is. No issue we eat in .Michelin starred restaurants all over the world

This was im sad to say a waste of our time and money...so disappointed ..our winter escape is in Boca..but there are too many restaurants to put up with wrong order , chaos lousy food and terrible blaring music...what kind of Ambience
Is that...
If you enjoy that kind of experience for 250 dollars for 2 have a. Blast..
.we are not going back and we have had a regular table..enough said

Food is truly a let down. Service could improve, i.e. champagne glasses are not to be filled to the rim. Ambiance is outstanding...but overall given such poor food offering the value in very low.

The restaurant became VERY as soon as the music started. People had to raise their voices to be heard, and they did! All around my table was loud talking. I ordered a 3 pound lobster. It came cut up. Only 2 partial claws(one half) came on the plate. They were smaller than my previous claws from a 3 pounder. They were not attached to the leg joints - which were not there. When I complained the waiter and manager pointed out what was one the plate and left. They should have brought me to another 3 pounder to compare. I did not want to cause a science and just bit my tongue. I won,t be back!

We are regulars there. I love certain food there but lately I’ve been very disappointed with the service. Several times now it’s taken extended time to get drink service and the other night 40 minutes for our salads. The servers are quick to apologize but it doesn’t rectify the situation if you’re hungry and tired at this point. Management has been very kind because of the issues but I do see it a lot lately where every table around us having issues too

This is a very pretty restaurant. I would say that the food although good was nothing special for the $$. I would only come back to happy hour but not to the main dining room. It was very busy and noisy over the holidays but that is to be expected.

We dined on Xmas eve, knowing it would be busy and knowing service would be slow, but that was accepted and understood

My wife’s first course - prawn cocktail was brought up - four small prawns on a bed of ice with 3
2 dips. Honestly, you can buy bigger prawns at Publix. The dish cost $21 and I guess cost less than $1. I mentioned this to our server Wendy who reported this to her manager. They then brought up 4 large prawns. Thats good, but why did they think us was acceptable to serve the smaller prawns?

We had to wait a long time for our main course - I guess an hour. I had to ask the manager to chase the dish, and asked her to let know what time the order went into the kitchen - she did not come back to me but offered her apologies

At the end of the meal, Wendy apologised for the service and said the manager would be over with some discount cards. That completely misses the point. I don’t want a discount as an incentive to come back - I am quite certain the restaurant will still make a decent profit on my custom

What I want to hear is that the restaurant will not take advantage of its customers by serving poor quality food, will not take advantage of Xmas eve by overbooking to the point that the kitchen can not cope with the volume of orders, I want to know that our need is valued more than the restaurants greed

I did I not wait for the discount vouchers,

Once again Chop Lobster Bar exceeded our expectations. Our waiter, Pik Ki was exceptional as well as polite in servicing our needs. She went above 120 percent in delivering drinks and entrees. The bartender even brought a drink for my husband directly to the table. The ribeyes were prepared well and tasteful. The Crabcakes were also delicious according to my husband. Overall from reservation to delivery of drinks and entrees, Chop Lobster Bar continues to offer superb service to their patrons.
