Mentioned it was a birthday, was more than willing to pay for the dessert but they didn’t do anything for the occasion. They asked if sparkling or still for water and then charged $7 for what we had thought we were ordering/ was tap (they should have offered tap as an option). Steaks were cooked perfectly (medium rare) but the cuts were very tough for both parties. Overall have been here many times and this was a very subpar experience.

Was great to be back at Boston Chops! We always celebrate our anniversary there, and this is the first time back since … we sat outside in the cute new patio section. It was in the high 50s but the outside heaters kept it comfy. Great food as always, and stellar safe service. I marked the noise level as low because it was if you are outside. Just know on a Saturday night that if you dine indoors, the level is much louder -

We were so disheartened by our experience last time we were here there was a great drop in the quality of the food. We figured it was due to the pandemic. This dinner was testament to a return to its glory. Are dirty martinis were perfectly made the first time. The oxtail croquettes were delicious. The popovers fresh. The oysters were fresh. The steak tartare is a little dry. It may benefit from having an egg added to it. We were extremely pleased by the return of the Chateaubriand! The mac and cheese leaves you craving more. The creme brulee was amazing as always. They even threw in a free dessert on the house due to our horrendous experience we had last year.

Boston chops was a great experience. Our steak was delicious as well as the appetizers we ordered. Our host was very attentive and did a great job helping us pick out a bottle of wine for the night. My only complaint is that we were originally sat in a section where the tables were all with in a few inches of each other!! However once we asked to move we were seated at a better table.

The manager was very nice as was the server. Unfortunately when I pointed out my steak was medium well and not medium rare the server apologized and recognized it was over cooked. Yet he didn’t do anything to rectify the situation. I’ve been going to Chops for years and always had a good experience and food. A shame about this time.

Not very impressed with the food, average at best for a high end steak house. Cesar salad came out and it was like coming right out of the bag.

I’ve had pappardelle bolognaise in many restaurants both high end and low. I was a bit disappointed in the pasta. I expected the perfect al dente, but I found it to be undercooked.

We all really enjoyed Boston Chops! We had a party of eight and EVERYONES meal was delicious & cooked perfectly. We ordered a cake from there for a birthday celebration that was not only beautiful but also very good. They seated us on time, was attentive, and gave good wine suggestions. Excellent restaurant!

Very friendly staff Good neighborhood location. Menu a little sparse. Steak is okay but sea bass was excellent. For a neighborhood steakhouse it is good. The special group room and the bar may be its best features. If you need a table for 10-14 get the glass room.

Sadly all food was under seasoned - even the chicken w mushroom risotto. The chicken was cooked perfectly at least even if risotto lacked flavor. Perhaps that’s the hint and their skill is in meat? Nice staff and, water notwithstanding (tiny glasses and they barely refill), ok service; fantastic outdoor decor. Decent wine menu.

Great steaks, very nice appetizers as well. However the pork belly mac & cheese was disappointing. One small cut of pork belly placed in the center of the mac & cheese, that lasts about 2 bites and the remainder of the dish is underwhelming. Friendly staff overall a very nice experience

It took forever to get anything we ordered. From drinks to entree. We weren’t in a rush but we were starting to get hungry. Waiter was very nice and apologetic for the long waits. No explanation was offered nor did we expect one. If the hour and 45 minute rule is still in effect we definitely went well over two hours for dinner for two that included drinks, apps and entree. No deserts.
