    Service was GHASTLY… plain rude. The waiter left us unattended for 30mins after serving us the drinks on a nearly empty restaurant…. When he finally came back after 30 mins to take our order we communicated our displeasure to what he replied “do you want the check?” … so we did… bill was 60 dollars for drinks and we left on an empty stomach…. Honestly AVOID

    Steaks (bone-in rib eye) and the baked potato were phenomenal but the croquettes and desserts (chocolate cake and sticky toffee pudding) were lackluster.

    Boston Chops is the best spot in Boston to celebrate Valentines day, or any other special holiday. The food and service is beyond expectations - you will not get better bang for your buck anywhere else.

    I hadn’t been to brunch at Chops in ages and always enjoyed it, it was always an event. What happened? There was -literally- nobody there. Like at all. The food and service was fine. Bizarre though - about halfway through our meal a 3 top came in and they were seated RIGHT NEXT TO US, uncomfortably close, in a completely empty restaurant. What?!? So awkward for everyone involved.

    We loved that the poppers are back! The steaks were cooked perfectly and we loved the fries. I started with the tuna app and it was seasoned very well and full of flavor. The salads we started with had a well-made dressing

    The food was great, the service was okay (they seem to he short of staff) since it took awhile to order food and get the bill. The ambience was classy, but I thought the steaks were overpriced.

    We go to Chops pretty often and love it for many reasons. This time didn't disappoint with one exception: our waiter. He seemed kind of stiff, put-off even, throughout the meal. He had a weird attitude that he thought he was concealing, but it was clear to all of us that he had something going on. He was abrupt, and things could have gone dark on a couple of occasions, but I made sure to keep ahead of him by ensuring we asked for things nicely, etc. I was with all good, longtime friends who are all very lovely, polite, non-aggressive people -- we were definitely not the problem. I will ask for a different wait staff if I return and he is assigned to my table.

    Service was absolutely terrible. Server was unattentive and short with us. After my husband raved about his last experience, this was very disappointing. We dine out very often and probably will never come back ever again. The value for food was terrible as well, but sometimes that is overlooked when services is good, but given the fact that we had such a bad experience, will never return. There are so many other options to choose from.

    Had the best dinner! Food was amazing! Service was amazing. However….they allowed a couple to bring their dog in and sit directly next to us. It was not a support or service animal. Since when are you allowed to bring your pets out to an expensive restaurant?? So odd.

    The service was the star of the show here! Exceptional. With the exception of the popovers (which were delightful), all the food was so fine, though the drinks were so-so. However, all of the staff. From start to finish were kind, engaged, attentive. So if you're splurging and you want a good quality steak meal I'm not sure this is the best option, but if it's just another weekday meal for you then this could be perfect for a quick stop in.

    Porterhouse special was overcooked and had no sear whatsoever. I expected much better for a $135 steak at a steakhouse. Spinach and potato sides are expensive (>$15 each) for what you get. Very disappointed.

    I have lived in the south for many years and brought five friends for holiday dinner. Each time I go back to Boston chops now the price goes up and the value goes down. We were early for our reservation, but were told that we had to order all of our food because there were 350 dinners that were going to be served that night. This did not make us feel like we were an important customer, but that we were just a number to be rushed in and out. Our appetizers were delicious, however, our plates were cleared before they were finished so that the entrées could come out. Two of our party ordered the $65 fillet and were told they had to pay $4 extra for an additional sauce. I continually see Boston chops nickel and dime their clients. This is no longer a special experience. If I’m going to pay an additional back of the house kitchen fee, I would expect the kitchen to be able to plate at the pace that I would like my meal not not the pace the chef would like. I am finally understanding why many of my neighbors have decided not to revisit Boston chops In the south end. The attitude from servers and staff Is just not worth the trip.
