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

We (party of 4) hadn't been there before. We were seated promptly and our server was quickly at our table for drinks. Everything was served on time in a proper manner without being rushed. I enjoyed the entire evening and the food without question was outstanding.

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.

We had an absolute awful experience during our first and last visit to Chops in Boca. The service was terrible, the food was less than stellar and the presentation was despicable. It seemed as though the wait staff and the kitchen were at odds and the patrons feel victim to their poor relationship. Not sure how this restaurant is even open for business considering what appeared to be a circus operation they are running.

Father's Day dinner for three was excellent. We chose the summer price fixed menu and had
so much to eat. We mixed and matched our sides and there was enough to share around.
Wife and daughter had surf and turf and I have the NY strip with a 5 dollar surcharge, worth every penny. Steaks were cooked perfectly and sides tasted great.
The bread sampling is always superb with the onion stuffed pockets always a favorite.
Cocktails and wine were excellent and all supervised by our great waiter, John.
Will be back.

Monroe runs an amazing restaurant. Service is excellent. Perfect for our business dinner. The wine list is inventive and reasonably priced. Ordered a hard to find K Vintners Syrah from Washington state. a 96 pt wine at a great price. The house special flash fried lobster tail does not disappoint. The waiter suggested the Key Lime pie for dessert and its different and rivals Joe's.

We have been here many times and always have a great meal. Tonight was not good. The air conditioners were not working properly and it was unpleasant. My wife had diver sole and it was fishy and she sent it back. I had a prime rib eye. It was so tough that the table shook when I tried to cut it. The waitress was not attentive. We had to get up and find silverware when she couldn’t be found.

I hope this was just a bad night. We will go back and hope this was an anomaly.

We had a great time celebrating a friends birthday. The only thing we were disappointed about was the Tomahawk steak we ordered medium rare which came out more on the rare side. We did not complain so it’s on us for not allowing them to correct. The service was great and we enjoyed our evening!

We went there for a birthday celebration, 4 people in total. Our reserved table was waiting for us! The food was, as usual very good, especially the steaks. We have been to this location several times and always had a good experience.
My one issue this particular evening was that the waiter seemed to rush us along. We were the 6:30 seating and he was rushed us to order. When we did order the food came out almost immediately. I was not even done with my last bite when he had the table cleared and was pressuring us for dessert. I asked him to hold off a few minutes, but he insisted that we order dessert and he would hold off bringing it. So, we ordered dessert and he brought it right away.
From the time we got there til we left was about an hour and 15 minutes.....not really what we were expecting for our Saturday evening and our $600 for 4 people. We would rather have had a leisurely meal served at a slower pace. This restaurant is not a diner.
