We loved our visit to Boston Chops last weekend. The food and service were excellent. Our server Kelly was quite attentive and took excellent care of us. Our food was excellent as well. I had a filet mignon and my wife had bolognaise. Both were delicious. We ordered the popovers for an appetizer which were delicious too. We also ordered cocktails and were both happy with them.

The only thing that kept this from being a perfect score was the deceptive way we were given water. The server asked if we wanted "sparkling or still water." I thought ordering still water meant free water. Instead we were charged $14 for still water. Not a huge deal, but it felt deceptive.

We loved the place and will definitely be back!

Went out with a group of 8 guys here and had a blast. Great service, food and drinks. It's a lively vibe so if you're looking for a quiet meal, might not be the right spot.

We had our family Thanksgiving dinner here and it was a great experience. We arrived early and were seated immediately. The staff was attentive but not over bearing. Even with a full room the were no wait times. Everything from the cocktails to the desert was perfect

Special BDay celebration and they missed it when serving dessert, yet the table next door was celebrated. Very embarrassing. Food was good but expensive. It took a while to get to the table compared to adjoining tables. Servers seemed distracted by a large party. Change the Cesar salad to a chopped serving. Romaine leaves with sliced cheese on top is not a Cesar Salad. It's what I'd eat if I was picking it at a farm. Not worthy of the expense or the atmosphere of a high end steak house.
Popovers were excellent as was the Shrimp cocktail (outstanding) and Warm Chocolate Cake.

Took the wife and a few friends here for her birthday. The service was outstanding! The food was amazing everyone’s dish came out perfect. We dropped a fork on the floor and they gave us another one without us having to ask. The staff goes above and beyond to make your experience delightful. Very professional I would highly recommend.

Ambiance service was great. I felt the food was ok nothing amazing. I added the lobster tail which seemed more than Caribbean lobster than a New England. Very small for $35 extra and was overcooked

Great time, great food, great service. My only issue was the menu saying a lobster tail for the listed price and it was only a half of tail. The manager acknowledged the issue and resolved it and took the item off. Service was great!

We had varieties of steak, chicken under a brick, spicy broccolis and sautéed mushrooms. All were delightfully delicious. Popovers were perfect start to the meal, unique. Drinks were delicious and unique too. Spicy drink was quite something! Dessert is not to be missed, especially the peppercorn ice cream. Noise level and lighting was a little too loud and dark for me; and the table could have been bit larger. Got crowded with the plates easily. Service was excellent!

My wife and I are in Boston to see the Titian exhibit and decided to go Boston chops as nice dinner out since we had a little freedom this weekend. The red brick, quasi industrial decor with Edison bulbs in all the fixtures and low level modern music was hand a great ambiance.

The restaurant was full in the front inside but had two out door areas with heaters that were less full. While seating is a little close in the covid world inside the heaters do a great job for folks who were looking for more air between u and other guests.

The wait staff was thoughtful and attentive, and the noise level while a little loud want so bad that one couldn't hear the specials.

The lauded French onion soup, I found, to be a bit thin and needed more salt and pepper for my taste. My wife thought it had good flavor but agreed in the salt. The shrimp cocktail was 3 to four bite per shrimp (so very well sized). I was also enticed to the restaurant by the promise of "popovers" which I like to make at Christmas but never see on a menu. They were well cooked and made me wonder why more restaurants don't make them.

The steak dinners were excellent. The filet mignon was flavorful and tender. The New York strip was cooked to perfection.

The sides of sautéed mushrooms and horseradish mashed potatoes were excellent.

All in all a great upscale steak dinner.

One Note from the evening. I found myself at the end of the night having to make a stop in the lieu, maybe to much wine and water with dinner, at any rate I was interested in the provocative pictures in the mens lavatory of scantily clad women in an embrace. I mentioned this to my wife who In turn had to make use of the women's restroom. She reported to only find pictures of people having a good time. Is this sexist that men are provided provocateur and the ladies are not provided equal pictures of half naked males? Not a complaint, just observing. Probably the wine still making my mind go round.

For a place that is high scale, I was extremely disappointed to receive McDonald like french fries and bland arugula with my $50+ steak. The steak was not seasoned at all, but cooked to perfection. I understand the steak takes appx 30 minutes to prepare, but our waiter kept rushing us to put an order in. Overall, just an okay experience.

Wait staff was excellent! Prompt and polite. Great ambiance. Food was less than desirable. Caesar salad was a piece of cheese with four full leafs of lettuce and piece of toast ??really?? Filet portion was thin like a flank steak and over cooked. Strip steak had no char or flavor. Expected A LOT more for the hype and money.
