The restaurant was excellent. Our server was Dan and he was very attentive without being over the top. I got the bone in sirloin and my wife got the filet. Both were excellent. We would go back.

We brought clients here for dinner, and everything from the popovers to the wagyu ribeye were phenomenal. Service was top notch, too! We are regulars at Grill 23 and our dinner at Boston Chops was a standout. This place doesn't slouch.

Came to Boston Chops-South End for a dinner before Phil Collins,and left feeling fatter. That’s a good thing,imo...it means the food was outstanding. Our group ordered 3 app’s (bone marrow,oxtail,and crab cakes) and they were great. The whole table ordered the wagyu bavette and it was cooked perfectly. The type of melt in your mouth steak that everyone desires. 4 sides were ordered with the dinner (Pork belly Mac & Cheese,Brussels spouts with bacon,creamed spinach,and loaded poutine potoato)....now do u see why we left feeling fat. Add to this 2 desserts (Warm Choc Cake,and Boston Cream pops)

I can’t wait to go back. One of the better meals I’ve had in a long time. I compare a lot of restaurants to Bones in Atlanta and this one lives up to expectations for a fine dining expierence.

Items that were ordered on this particular night with a brief summary:

Roasted bone marrow - $11: If you haven't had bone marrow before definitely give this a try. The flavors they contain (when combined with the other items on the plate) are phenomenal

Onion rings w/ spicy aioli - $11: If you like onion rings this is a absolute must have! The spicy aioli pairs nicely with the delicate batter and sweet onions. I'd get this everytime!

18 oz Food & Wine Prime Bone-In Rib Eye - $59: Fantastic cut of beef with excellent, rich flavors. NOTE: This is an ala-cart item and thus comes with no sides so if you want to have a change of texture then ordering a side is strongly recommended!

Black forest cake - $12: Comes with a cherry sorbet which pairs surprisingly well with the rich dark chocolate cake. If you love dark chocolate then you will probably enjoy this as well!

All-in-all if you enjoy a good steak then definitely give this place a try!

Excellent Meal. This was my first visit to Boston Chops but it certainly won't be my last. We started with the shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were HUGE and delicious with the spicy cocktail sauce. We both ordered the 8-oz. filet mignon which was just perfect, perhaps one of the best I've ever had. The filet typically comes with fries but our server was happy to substitute the sour cream & horseradish mashed potatoes instead, which we really appreciated. Cocktails, wine, and dessert were all fabulous as well. All of the staff members we encountered were polite and professional. Would definitely recommend.

Second time we've been there. Our server was nice, but he seemed to push to rush us a little and seemed just a little wet behind the ears. At that early hour, there was not a big demand for tables, so we didn't understand the push.

Creative menu. Exquisite wine list. Peaceful, inviting environment. My food was amazing. I had the Ribeye and it was delicious and LARGE. I also had an AMAZING salad with burrata and tomatos and some fantastic bacon roasted brussel sprouts. Another guest at my table had the poutine style twice baked loaded potato and THAT alone was worth the trip. Definitely generous portion sized. She also had French onion soup that she said was fantastic. Another member of the party had the pork chop and it was equally delish. Our server Brian was professional and exceptionally helpful with the menu. Fantastic visit! Oh, and don't forget the sticky toffee pudding...

I was taking a friend to dinner for her birthday and made a mistake with the date on the online booking. I phoned in a bit of a panic with a couple of hours' notice, and the restaurant could not have been more helpful in finding a slot for us, even on their busiest night. Very good of them, and very impressive. When we got there the whole experience (food, service, atmosphere) was fantastic.

High prices for mediocre food. Waitress wasn't willing to adapt to what we were looking for and not very knowledgable in comparison to other steak houses we've been to. We're pretty easy, but we think there are better steak houses in the area.

The food was just alright. The waiter said the corn bread would be 3 pieces but only 2 came. The bus boy came quickly to take our small app plates away before our corn bread arrived. Had to wait for another 15 mins before we got new plates. Found a piece of blonde hair in food and that just made me loose my appetite.

Had the 18oz bone in rib eye as recommended by Thrillist. Added a bone marrow as well. For sides we had the bacon Brussels sprouts and onion rings. If there's only 2 of you, only order half order for onion rings cuz it'll be plenty. Food was great, really enjoyed it. Ordered the wine recommended and it went perfectly with the steak. Our server was superb, great service and gave us space during our meal. Overall we had a really good dining experience.
