They didn't give us a normal table at first like I had asked for on OpenTable. Happens every time.
Steak was tough.
Waiter was hard of hearing. Had to tell him everything three times.
Table was so dark. No lighting at all over OUR particular table.
Not a great experience. Better experiences in the past at Chops.

Food was excellent... fresh,tasty,nice presentation..service did not reflect the ambiance that the restaurant atmosphere reflected...server got completely distracted with another party even though he had an assistant who went out side to observe the rain. Also manager never came to the table to greet us or make sure that all was perfect. Issues aside we would definitely return.

Food was pretty good. Service was not to the level this place should have. Waited 10 minutes to be greeted at our table. Didn’t pay attention to what was happening on the table after we ordered like leaving the wine glasses on the table when no one was drinking wine. Missing a set of silverware and a water glass missing. We had to wait for the service to come around (5-10 minutes) and ask for these things.
Was out of their chiabtta bread at 7 pm reservations?
The food was good so we may try it again in the future.

It was our second visit to Chops. We enjoyed our food and beverages, and the service was excellent. It was our wedding anniversary and unfortunately a couple of issues prevented us from having a most enjoyable experience. First, the room was quite noisy and not suitable for a couple wishing to enjoy each other's company. Second, there were fruit flies which were quite annoying as we kept waving them away, trying to protect our food.
Though they do a nice job, based on the above, we won't return.

The service was excellent. The noise level was to high for us to have a nice conversation without yelling across the table. Lots of dish clatter from the nearby kitchen. Not the ambience we enjoyed several years ago. Food portions were over the top large and prices were high as you would expect for the portion size. We took half our food home. There are other wonderful steak and seafood restaurants in the area that have food of equal quality and taste with ambience and portions more to our taste. There is no longer anything unique about the food and service. In its present mode we would remove it from our list of choices.

this was my 5th or 6th time to this boca raton eatery....ive always enjoyed my meals here from appetizers through desserts.....steaks are always first rate prime quality and their peppercorn sauce was among the best ive had..the lobster bisque had big pieces of lobster in it and it was not just claw meat as some restaurants serve...ceasar salad was average..i do reccomend this place as as place if you want to impress your date but be prepared for the bill as it is on the more expensive side but the taste, quality and portion sizes do justify the expense.

Chops Lobster Bar is not to be missed – everything was superb. We loved our food [crab cakes and tuna], had a warm greeting from the manager, Moe, and great service by Lana and her team. We look forward to returning.

Came here for the 2nd time and I have to say I’m VERY disappointed. First they sat us in the room closest to the kitchen in the back with 2 other tables spread across this huge room (mind you the dining room we walked through was MUCH busier with open tables available).. second, the waiter assigned to us wasn’t professional at all and had trouble telling us the special as every other word was “um, um”..? Third,
Steak tartar was one of the blandest and tasteless steak tartar I’ve ever had! Literally tasted like I was eating chopped beef out of a Publix. The Caesar salad dressing was bland and boring and watered down and the actual Romain lettuce was basically chopped(I didn’t order it chopped) to the point where I couldn’t grab any lettuce with my
Fork and asked for a spoon(why would anyone need a spoon to eat a Caesar salad?!?!) Fourth, while still picking on our apps, we noticed our steaks had come out and put down next to the waiter station we were seated next to... the waiter asked if we were done and I said I guess I am now if those are our steaks.. he proceeded to clean the table with out apologizing or explaining WHY my steaks were being brought out while I clearly still had food on the table that was I working on... looking forward to my steak, I was quickly disappointed bc my steak was ICE COLD, maybe even frozen? I sent it back to get some more heat on it and when it came back it wasn’t anything spectacular (I had the bone-in rib eye).. the best part of that dinner was the Mac n cheese.. but even after a few bites it started getting dry and had no cream, but still tasty some how. I doubt I’ll ever be coming back here bc the manager came and asked how everything was bc didn’t apologize for my dinner being rushed which I made very clear to waitstaff I was not happy about.. not to mention a couple sitting a few tables from us had a good 5-10 min break in between their apps and entrees. Maybe it was bc they had a bottle of Caymus Special Selection.Never again

Great value on their tasting menu. Presentation was beautiful, the portion size was impressive, and the quality was delicious. The wait staff was truly friendly and before I even mentioned that I needed a fresh knife it was as if the waiter read my mind and it was there!

Service - excellent
Ambiance - super
Food - mixed - 1/2 the group thrilled the other half underwhelmed
Calamari was overcooked and basically was eating fried bread crumbs in a really nice Thai sauce
Strip steak was chewy and lacked flavor - a huge disappointment especially for the price!
Lobster and Filet Mignon were spot on.
French fries were limp and far from crispy
Deserts went over well for those who ordered them
Bottom line is consistency and that is a common miss here
We still love coming here and will keep coming in spite of the misses...
