Cole's Chop House Ratings and Reviews
We arrived a bit early for our reservation. We had to wait about 15 mins to get seated. There were a lot of people and they are doing a fixed meal choice for Napa Disaster Relief, so totally understandable. The wine list is definitely incredible they have quite a variety of local favorites and high end wines, as well as cocktails. I ordered the flowers Pinot Noir and my husband the GoldenEye Pinot Noir, both recommended by our server to start. We ordered the cheese plate which came with 3 cheeses, a honeycomb, and bread. Unfortunately these weren’t explained as to what we were getting, just kind of handed us the plate. We then received an our main course which was the porterhouse steak 21-day aged for two, the asparagus w/hollandaise sauce and the house hash browns. The main course was great, amazing flavors on the steak. Once we finished our server went to the table next to us and asked if they were ready for dessert and they politely declined, he was very insisting on the dessert for them but then he turned around and just handed us the dessert menu and asked “dessert?” I think overall our service was good but when we were able to clearly see the 5-star service versus the average service we received I was a bit disappointed. Turned out that they knew some of the workers there, so I just didn’t know what to think. I felt that compared to the table next to us the server was definitely more attentive to the table next to us and that made for a “ok” experience..
Read good reviews so expectations were already high. Did not disappoint. Wait staff was very accommodating and efficient. Described our choices accurately and food was delivered promptly. Steaks and sides were excellent. Just as ordered and hoped for. A top line steak house in the old style. We would recommend and return if and when in the area.
One of the best dining experiences we have had in a very long time. Classic old school steakhouse with all male wait staff. I wish I could remember his name, older gentlemen with salt and pepper good head of hair. True professional, made us feel like family. Food was perfectly prepared. Wife had scallops she loved, large plump and nicely seared. I had the best rack of lamb I have every had, tender and a perfect medium rare. Not cheap but worth it. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Steaks were overpriced and only fair. I live in Chicago who has some of the best steakhouses in the country. $65 for a steak...ok. Not the strip steak I ate. Atmosphere was just ok. Service likewise. If you’re accustomed to Gibsons, Morton’s, Chicago Prime, etc. you’ll be dissapointed here.
The meal was just okay. Why is this one of your top 100 restaurants? I want to know. ordered the wagyu beef with mashed potatoes and mushrooms. The beef and mushrooms were delicious but I could have made the mashed potatoes better. I expected better. My friend had the filet. She said she's had better. Brussel sprouts were good.
Service was nothing special. Server was nice; however, his actions at the end of our meal clearly indicated we needed to pay our check and move on. And, the yellow rimmed plates and the knives with the restaurant's name on them. Why? I will not go back. Seriously, why are they on your top 100 list?
Enjoyed the ambience, good service. Food was really disappointing. We ordered the carpaccio, lobster bisque in puff pastry, filet with bleu cheese, and truffle fries. Everything was just OK. We had a glass of wine that was fine and a gin and tonic that my husband said was weak. Overall, had such high expectations and was so disappointed. We both think Ruth’s Chris is so much better and less expensive. Would not recommend and will not return.
The steaks were delicious. Also, the wedge salad and asparagus with hollandaise was amazing! We had a reservation at 7:45, but weren't sat until 8:15. They took 8% off the bill, I'm not sure why. The bar was crowded and everyone was enjoying themselves. We didn't like the hash brown side dish. It has quaint outside seating as well. Friendly staff.
My husband and I were celebrating our 32nd Wedding Anniversary! He ordered the bone-in ribeye and I had the 14 oz. ribeye. Both of our steaks were cooked to perfection. We also ordered the wild mushrooms with truffle oil, definitely worth it with some side vegetables. For dessert we shared the maple pecan pie. It had a puff pastry type crust, not how us southerners do it, but it was awesome. Our waiter was so fantastic that if I could have given service an extra star I would have! I also love the corkage policy and anyone who is out wine tasting should take full advantage of it. This is a great place! We will definitely make it back next time we come to the area.
Food was very good, but pricey. Our server, Rosa, was amazing. It was a little loud for my taste. A large table celebrating a birthday nearby was quite noisy and when they stood to leave, they blocked the pathway to the restrooms and exit. No one seemed to notice.
Don't get me wrong, our steak was perfectly cooked. The broccoli seemed as though it came out of a frozen bag and the hollandaise on top was dreadfully boring. Our Caesar salad was underwhelming but dressed nicely. The saving grace was the big plate of their hash browns that were a side. You pay extra and quite a bit extra for the sides, I feel like for a $65 steak the least they could do is include maybe one or two sides. The steak knives were dull and shredded the meat while trying to cut with them. Over all it was an okay meal but not for $65 for the steak alone. Glad I went, but probably won't ever go back.
Dinner was a lovely experience. The bar was very crowded, so when we arrived early for our 7:45 reservation to have a drink, it was a bit disappointing to be put off as there was a “waiting list” for the bar seating. We ordered a nice bottle of wine anyway and sat outside in random chairs until our reservation came up. A bit odd but didn’t ruin our night, as we enjoy sitting at the bar to eat on occasion, too.
The food was excellent (filet and ribeye).excellent dessert (no flour choc cake). Great service. Bathrooms seemed to have issues - I had to wait at least 10 mins to use.
