Boston Chops was everything we hoped it would be. We went there last year for Thanksgiving and again this year. The only question I have is why did I wait a whole year to come back? The meal was absolutely delicious and our server, Kelly, was a delight and answered every question with a warm smile. We plan to make Boston Chops our go-to restaurant for the special occasions in our life. No more looking through the interns and reading reviews-we found our spot.

I have eaten here several times. It's a beautiful restaurant. The food is generally good. I had a pork chop that was a little Bland this time. The popovers are fantastic. They used to be complementary but now they charge for them. The cocktail was good. The wine is a very short pour for the money. That was disappointing. Waiter was great.

Excellent dining experience, great service! Didn’t particularly like some of the up charges on the drinks, like for a cosmo, martini and blue cheese olives.

Boston Chops is always very good to us. From the food to the service and the lively conversation with fellow diners and staff. Best french fries in town! And the French 75 cocktail was the perfect pairing with my oysters.

My girlfriend and I were out celebrating major life events and landed on Boston Chops. We decided to be seated at the bar since we both haven’t been able to have that experience since April. The seats were spaced out evenly with large plants in between which provided a feeling of privacy and a romantic ambiance. Our bartender provided excellent service and helped us pick a lovely wine. The chateaubriand was cooked to perfection with a delicious peppercorn sauce on the side and the mashed potatoes and pea shoots were delectable. I highly recommend the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. 5 Stars.

Was one of the more disappointing experiences there. No more free popovers which I always look forward to, steak wasn’t well cooked, and the fries just come on the plate now, arugula salad was super salty. Some of it was changes due to covid protocols I’m sure but will think again before rushing back.

Another great celebration--a friend and I had yet another wonderful meal that was a bit of a splurge for us but completely worth it! The wine paired beautifully with our steaks, and the tuna tartare did not disappoint. Once again, the bartender and every other server I knew made me feel like I was one of their favorite uncles.

So happy that Boston Chops in the South End is back! We sat at the bar (our preferred seating prior to COVID) and were so happy to see the clever ways they were able to keep the same excellent and personal level of service with masks and social distancing. Use of large palm plants to separate patrons dining at the bar was delightful -- and added nicely to the club-like feel of the place. The menu has changed a bit, but our go-to favorites were there. The tuna, the frites, the excellent cuts of beef, the oysters and of course the popovers. Alas, they are no longer complimentary. But you can order as a side off the menu now. Hey, if I have to sacrifice a free popover in order for our neighborhood steakhouse to keep its doors open, it's a small price to pay! Thank you Boston Chops!!!

We had reserved high top seating. It wasn’t available and we had to wait 1/2 hour to sit at a table inside in the doorway. The menu was limited- not as it used to be.
We dine there every time we are in Boston and it wasn’t the same. Guess this is our new reality. 😞

Food was metza-metza. They cook a steak really well, but lack seasoning. Shrimp overcooked. Sides were done well. Outdoor seating was awkwardly set up on the side walk. Other restaurants have more private seating.
