I had dined at the Steakhouse at Yankee Stadium on two prior occasions, and was expecting a similar experience. Pat LaFrieda's Chop House reminded me (decor-wise) of the breakfast room at a Hampton Inn! If there had been a view of the stadium, the field, or ANYTHING, I might understand it. The decor and ambience is non-existent. The menus are printed on single sheet card-stock (no cover) and are VERY VERY limited. The wine list is the same, and the staff is not familiar with either. I felt like I was at an airport restaurant, although they usually put more thought into the decor! I get it ... I was at a ball-park; what was I expecting?!!! I'm a Met fan, and it kills me that the Yankees got it right!

good option before the game, a bit more upscale than your normal stadium food. A bit too noisy, TV was turned up too loud.

I have been going to this restaurant since Pat LaFrieda took over and each year I think that it is going to get better, service-wise....It never does...I just don't get how a place can not be prepared to service their patrons adequately: especially on OPENING DAY!!! It is the same thing every year...I get there at 11:30am for a 1:10 game and it always a rush to get to see the first pitch, always having to miss the pre-game opening day ceremonies...Just about everyone around us had the same complaint....I am certain that you will not do anything about it because if you were inclined to, you would have done already...The difference is that you will not get another shot at it next year with me and my 3 grown up sons...

The food is usually good and the pre-game meal time is usually packed. Steak sandwich and the pretzel are consistently good. Its best to make a reservation through Open Table. Without the reservation they may turn you down even if there is open seating. With the reservation that is never a problem. If you go to the back corner there is glass where you can look down into a batting cage and there is sometimes opponents taking batting practice. Usually the best players are the ones practicing taking BP (probably why they are the best).

We had a 5:30 reservation which was the earliest available. We arrived and were the second party seated. Water came immediately. Then we waited, waited, waited and waited some more. There were waiters and waitresses all standing around but no one came to our table. After a considerable and frustrating wait I finally went to the hostess and asked if we could be reseated so we could get waited on. The manager went in the kitchen, came out and said someone would be with us shortly. Finally a waitress showed up and said she had been in the kitchen chopping up food and wasn’t aware she had tables. She took our order and that was the last we saw her until I finally was able to flag her down and request another glass of wine. She walked past our table numerous times but never asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. I was able to finally get her attention so I could order another glass of wine. A different server brought the meals and wine. The food was awesome but the service was absolutely terrible.

Service was very slow and very poor. It took nearly a fully hour to get out food. No apology from our waitress. I got the wedge salad. The blue cheese dressing tastes like it came from a Kraft bottle. I also got the short rib. Again, the sauce tastes like it came out of a bottle from the grocery store. I would not call this fine dining at all and for the price, I will not do it again.

Very good burger. We both had the brunch burger and found very juicy and flavorful. The side salad was very fresh and the dressing was good and made a nice touch instead of fries. Will stop in again when in for a game. Hopefully the Mets will win next time

We were a party of 10. Arrived at 5:30pm for the game. Gave food request promptly. Server pleasant. BUT worst!!! service I have ever had. The drinks were wrong. The appetizers came late and also wrong. The main course took forever. And I mean we missed the opening pitch without dessert. My burger (which was good) came medium well. I ordered medium rare. The restaurant was not busy.

Although we got to the restaurant early and it was fairly empty we had to wait 45 minutes for our food. Not a complicated order...all sandwiches.

Is a pleasant alternative to hot dogs st the seats but service should be improved.

Food was nothing special and certainly not worth the price. Waitress was pleasant however, we waited quite a while though there were only 4 other tables occupied at the time. Waited even longer for our check to arrive so we ended up being late to the start of the game even though we were seated 2 hours before the start of the game! 4 burgers and coffee shouldn't take 2 hours

We decided to try the restaurant as Club Access came with my Tickets. The restaurant was very hard to find ( we asked 3 different Citi employees; and they could not tell me where is was or what floor it was on!) Pat LaFrieda's chop house was nice; once we found it. The Ambiance and service was very good and we did not wait long for our food. The food quality was OK; not great and very over priced ($28.50 for a steak sandwich that was mostly bread & onions) The Total Bill for lunch for 2 people was $152.00 (appetizer, entree, beverage, tax & tip) for about the same price we could have had Steaks at the Porsche club at Citi Field.
Overall save yourself the headache and price and get burger & fries at the shake shack and eat in your seat.

Great ambiance and wonderful food. Please remember that you need game tickets in order to eat there. Also you need to contact a concierge employee to give you access to the Delta Sky 360 area if you do not hold a ticket that have that advantage.

Visited the Chop House primarily because it was convenient to our seating for the Mets game. Until a couple of years ago, my guests and I enjoyed coming here for a pre-game tradition. However, the menu (both food and beverages) is much more limited than it used to be. While the food is very good, and the service attentive and friendly, we probably would opt for the Porsche Grill because of the wider variety of choices (assuming it hasn't changed much from when it was the Acela Club), if it were not so far from our seats.

There just doesn't seem to be any reason to have to charge $26 for a hamburger. That restaurant should be full every single game and for the most part, what I have seen, is that is more empty than it should be. I believe that has to do with the complete lack of value. I've been going to that restaurant since Citifield opened and It seems that they have never quite gotten the service and value down. I am certain that this review will be completely disregarded. As a season ticket holder in a premium section of Citi Field I felt that I had to tell you what most people are thinking.

Made reservation for 6 PM. Arrived at 6 PM. Ordered within 5 minutes. Restaurant was not full. Our meal was not served until 7:15 Had to wolf down meal. Missed 1st 2 innings of game including a NY Me'ts home run. Ordered 2 $52 Sirloin steaks. Steaks tasted like hamburger grease. Was told by the waitress that the reason our meals were delayed was due to the fact that management wanted to cook the many hamburger orders they had first. It was then that I noticed the patrons who sat down well after us finishing their meals before ours even arrived. $200 bill. Missed the best part of game including national anthem. Never again!

Food is excellent. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. And when you're finished eating there's a baseball game outside...what could be better? Pricey, but all stadium food costs more than your local pizzeria. Plus it's a nice restaurant in a stadium... so do the math! So splurge and have a good time!

The food is very good, but the menu is not. For some reason they dropped fish from the menu. The only vegetarian option is pasta and they really treat that as as after-thought. It was not worth the price charged even after they reduced it to $18 from $26.
