We had our anniversary dinner at a quiet, beautiful outdoor table. The whole crew made us feel very special from the moment we arrived. Service was great, drinks superb, food delish!!

I bet this restaurant is also suffering from staff shortage. We couldn’t get help on time but it’s not the waiter’s fault, he is serving so many tables. Very nice & friendly crowd, it’s fully packed on a Tuesday night.

*The salad came with steak is horrible, they poured a gallon of balsamic vinegar into the salad, we couldn’t eat it.

First time at Boston Chops, we were celebrating my daughters birthday. The food was outstanding! Everything was top notch. Our server, Vinny, was so personable and charming. We think he ended up with way too many tables by himself because we were there almost three hours, too long. There were too many 15-20 minute breaks with no food, no drinks, it took 20 minutes to get the check. We were surprised that the tables were so close. For a steakhouse, we’ve come to expect a luxurious feel, that was lacking here. And it was so loud. I get that I’m in my 50s but my 30 yr old daughter also complained. We strained to hear each other, we couldn’t have a conversation. I know they’re targeting a younger clientele but this loud music and the close proximity of tables may keep me from coming back even though the food was excellent.

Good to see people out and wanted to support local businesses. Have not been for a while here and food good, not great as a bit heavily salted. A few cut backs as now you have to pay for what were complimentary popovers but not an issue as I think fair but some might quibble. A delay with a chatty waitress at other tables slowed down our service as she did not give us attention as we tried to pay the bill. Wait staff must be reminded that they have a job first, not socialization to the neglect of others.

As ever, dinner was a treat. It was great to see Lucas 2.0 and Linds(e/a)y together again. It felt like watching a band get back together.

Though work is going to hectic during the next weeks, I look forward to returning for a brunch or dinner at the end of June.

Excellent meal from start to finish! My husband and I were celebrating our 45th anniversary. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne and after a delicious chateaubriand dinner, we were treated to a complimentary English sticky pudding dessert. Service, food and ambiance were superb!

It was our first time in. We both had the 8 oz steak frites, she the Filet Mignon, I the wagyu beef, medium rare with Bearnaise sauce, and split four oysters, fried pea greens, and a bottle of sparkling rose. Both steaks were good, mine was more expensive and tastier. We sat at the bar, the service was good. We will come again.

I was able to make a reservation same day. I realized we may be running a few minutes late so I gave them a call and asked to move the reservation back 15 minutes and they said no problem, they were very accommodating. When we arrived, we were seated right away at a very lovely table. Our waiter came to our table immediately tand brought us water. He answered all of our questions about the menu items and made wonderful suggestions. The food was delicious and all of the staff was very attentive and pleasant. It was a very wonderful dinner and we look forward to going back again.

Lots of outdoor patio space. But seems like the kitchen can’t keep up with all the tables.

Steak and side was tasty and the popovers are to die for.

Wonderful outdoor ambience. First time eating at a Boston restaurant since jan 2020. We all felt very safe, comfortable and well taken care of.

All of our meals were yummy except we asked for our hanger steak medium rare and it came out blue.

We should have sent it back but we just didn’t since we were with others who were eating their meal.

Other than that all high marks.

We love BC and of course will return for more outdoor dining but the steak was a disappointment.

Now has one of the nicest patios in the South End!
Boston Chops has been our “go to” for a nice dinner out for years. We used to go in, sit at the bar, and enjoy the environment of a true neighborhood bistro and chop house. Now, we get to sit outside (and soon enough inside) and watch the people, people with dogs, people with babies, and every other South End type walk by as we eat. The new side patio feels like being in Europe - which to me means the new Boston (please let outdoor dining remain!).
As always, a tight selection of steaks, sides, and selected mains (always a vegetarian choice or two as well), accompanied by classic cocktails and a nicely edited wine list. Yes, one of us almost always gets the steak frites. Yes, the onion rings are crazy good and really more than two people should eat. That’s what makes it comfortable and still a treat. Visit Boston Chops and help keep this locally owned gem thriving.
