This was a meal for clients of ours and I can only thank you for the impression you helped us make.
The place is great, you can have a conversation, the food and drinks were elegant and our server (Alex) was present, but not over-bearing.

Well done; we want to come back next year.

Chops is a really good steak house but they were out of my beef choice. I had to buy a much more expensive dinner in order to get a similar cut. Onion rings were amazing!!

I visited this restaurant during brunch for the first time. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was great however the drinks and food were lack luster. I have no doubt that the restaurant is amazing during dinner time! I

As always - great food, incredible service. They really are great at making the special occasions special. The servers are all very knowledgeable and there recommendations are always on point.
Unlike other steak houses in the city which can seem a bit all the same, Boston Chops is a cut above, with unique twists on the menu that elevate it above all the others. If you haven't ever been here - book your reservations now!

A little too crowded, a lot of "pda" and quite 1loud for my taste. The food & drinks were decent but pricey for the portion sizes. I appreciated the popovers - that was a pleasant change from the average bread rolls at other places. The bone marrow was a delicious bite, literally. Dessert sizes were very small. The short rib itself was phenomenal.

We love Boston Chops for its atmosphere and great drinks and the food is good, but we wish they would offer some additions or nightly specials to their menu. Also, consistently we've noticed that some of the dishes (the fries, the salad dressing, the steaks) are over salted and we are big fans of salt and not sensitive to salt, but think this could be corrected. Otherwise, its always a great experience.

There were some high's and some low's. The service was superb. The dinner -- a chateaubriand for two -- was wonderful, but an awfully big portion, enough to take home for another dinner the following night. Very good, typical steakhouse sauces. excellent mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. An appetizer of ceviche was sent back -- the fish had gone bad, and apparently was not checked before serving. An excellent manhattan, and a very interesting -- if very expensive -- wine list. We will return when the next craving for steak strikes, but the portions are truly huge and it would have been nice to have had an 8 or 10 ounce strip steak that was grilled, for example, on the menu.

Food and ambience was good but the menu is overpriced for what it is. we originally went for Restaurant week but their restaurant week menu was not great so instead of spending $38 a person for our meal (minus alcohol), we spent about a hundred or so each as their restaurant week menu did NOT have sufficient choices.

I had high expectations given the reviews but didn’t experience this restaurant in the same way as others. The steak was mediocre - the fries were good and I liked how they continue to offer hot fries during the meal. Service was attentive but he wasn’t overly friendly - in fact a bit stand offish. I am not sure we would go back again.

This is one of the few great neighborhood steak restaurants. Service and food were excellent. My wife had steak (of course) but I had the fried chicken (exceptional). If you like chicken, get this! Wonderful sauce. I really like the ambiance, it's welcoming to all and the clients are from all age groups. if you can't get in here, try the sister restaurant (Boston Chops Downtown on Temple), same menu, same great food.

OMG! WOW! MEGA! etc, etc, etc...

Bei der Suche nach einem Steakhouse in Boston ist die Auswahl relativ überschaubar, aber hochpreisig sind sie alle. Wobei das Boston Chops noch mit am preiswertesten ist und mir von der Karte her auch am ehesten zugesagt hat. Speziell was die Beilagen anging, diese waren nicht ganz so ausgefallen wie bei den anderen Steakhouses. Auch nicht ganz so Fisch-lastig wie in den anderen Restaurants.

Es gibt zwei Boston Chops, dieses lag näher an unserem Hotel und so konnten wir hinlaufen. Beide sind sehr schön eingerichtet, stilvoll und fast luxuriös. Schön auch mit dem gedimmten Licht, die Wände und Möbel sind auch eher dunkel. Meine Reservierung hatte geklappt und wir haben einen schönen 2er Tisch bekommen recht zentral. Unsere Bedienung Alex war mega nett und ich habe mich sehr gefreut dass wir an seinem Tisch saßen. Gerade was Steaks anging war er eine tolle Hilfe da es viele Steaks zur Auswahl gibt und ich nicht alle Steaks kenne, aber seine Beschreibungen waren super. Ich hatte mich dann für das 400 Gramm Prime Rib Eye Steak entschieden und war im Himmel, so zart und lecker!!! Dazu hatte ich selbstgemachte Makkaroni und Käse, auch gigantisch. Man sollte hierfür viel Hunger mitbringen, die Portionen sind groß. Vorher gab es noch Brot aus der Küche mit Butter, auch super gewesen. Die Frau hatte einen Blumenkohl-Steak (vegetarisch) mit Spargel, sie hat auch nur geschwärmt. Eine Flasche Wein noch dazu (die Auswahl an Weinen ist groß) mit einem Dessert welches wir uns geteilt haben, und dann waren wir auch schon bei 160 € für den Abend. Mit Trinkgeld 200 €, aber ich würde es immer wieder bezahlen, es hat alles gepasst!!!!

Klare Empfehlung meinerseits!!

I loved this place and the food was outstanding. My only comment is the wine. The wine menu is wonderful, but hard to find a great wine value. Most were above $175.00 and that can really eat into one's budget when ordering more than one bottle. Yes, there were lower price wines, but not of great value. Will for sure be back and again Love Boston Chops and highly recommend it. Just would love to have a great bottle of wine too!

Food was very good. I had the short ribs. Great flavor, tender. The mash potatoes were excellent. However, for 42.00 the ratio of short ribs to sides was not equivalent to the price. Very little meat. For 42.00 the amount of short ribs I can buy and cook myself would been easily 4-5lbs worth. I got on my plate less than 1lb of short ribs.
The other issue we had in my group of six, was that they would not divide the ticket. For us it would have been only 4 separate tickets. The gratuity was not included, therefore I would suggest to ask upfront if you want your ticket divided. Our ticket came to $360ish and the waiter was expecting a higher tip. We all felt had he divided the ticket he would have made more than the 10% he got.
Overall, it’s a nice plan to go. The food in taste I give it a 8-10. I liked everything I ordered. Will I be back? YES. I will bring my husband, but I know the yay and nays of going there.

Oue favorite steak house. Such a great vibe. Elements of tradition with maroon button tufted leather banquets and silver coat racks, but lighting and music make it so fun. Food is unbelievable. Never had anything we didn’t think was delicious. Service is excellent.

The server was rude and undermining. When I asked about a wine she didn’t give any description other than it’s not good, get a different one. It would have been nice for her to offer a tasting but since it was the least expensive glass on the menu I assume she just wanted to up sell me. I could have marked it as a mistake if she was kind and attentive the rest of the meal however that was not the case. The food and the ambiance were very nice and it would have been a great experience had the waitress not ruined it.

Boston Chops was close to being great - but was just too inconsistent. The steakhouse atmosphere was nearly perfect, vibrant but intimate. The ceviche and crab cake apps were top notch. Braised short ribs was one of the best first three bites ever - the sauce tasted spectacular. But the (only) two ribs were extra fatty and tasted like they had been browned in bacon fat. Couple that with the bed of sour cream mashed potatoes and the thick sauce, and the dish was just too rich and fatty, especially when it began to cool. It needed something acidic to cut through. On the other hand, my companion's filet was said to be very tender and very good. Finally, we shared a pineapple cheeses cake that was...meh. Not much pineapple gelee flavor, and if there had been, it would have been overwhelmed totally by the sccop of super sweet, lemon sorbet that accompanied it.

Went for brunch on Sunday. Steak and eggs were completely dry and rough. Server had too many tables to even pay attention to our table and ask if we enjoyed our food. We ate it because we were hungry, but very disappointed in the meat. Another guest on our table ordered the chicken and it was great, but super super smalll. Overall disappointed
