Always a nice dining experience. We ate here for First Bite, which had a set menu for $30.00 per. Good choices for the price. The regular menu is excellent for steak, but very pricy.

Just a little chaotic in the bar, but it is Halloween weekend in Boulder and the adults were celebrating. Food and service were very good as has been the case with prior visits. The Chop House will always be on my list of places to stop when visiting Boulder.

Food was great. Hostess was extremely rude. Put us in back room by ourselves in worst table in the restaurant, despite that we had reservations and it was a special occasion with 2 out of town guests. Husband also had back surgery and couldn't sit comfortably in he wooden chair. Waitress refused to move us after 2 requests. Unbelievably rude and inconsiderate. Finally a sympathetic waiter took it upon himself get us moved. From there, food was great and service was good.

Went to Chop House knowing the specialty and expecting them to be very good at it. The steak was average at best and to be honest, I think I prepare better steaks at home. NY Strip was not tender at all. Not what I expected.

We've been to noteable restaurants like this all over the country. For the price of a 6 oz filet or a 14 oz sirloin it was good but not anything that special. So many other great restaurants to try in Boulder. In our opinion it was overrated and overpriced.

Had an absolutely wonderful time! The phenomenal food, could only be surpassed by the second-to-none service. Whether heading out with a large party, or a romantic evening; get a reservation for the best dinner experience one can get on the front range!!!

There are so many good restaurants nearby that we are not likely to return. It was easy to get in on a Friday night at the last minute but the food was just okay. For the price and location, I would expect it to be superb!

Our food was very tasty. Cornbread and the calamari appetizer were delicious. However, our server was inattentive and especially slow in bringing after-dinner coffee and glasses of port. Then we had to wait a while for our check. Although it was a Saturday night and relatively busy, we noticed our server chatting at the bar with co-workers while we waited for the coffee. Supporting staff who bussed our table and helped deliver the main courses were excellent; it was our main server who was inattentive.

Food was average. Have had much better steak elsewhere. Fish was dried out. Asked for a wine recommendation. Thought they were being overly nice when the server brought 3 samples until the bill came and saw that I was charged for each sample. And only 1 of the samples came close to what I wanted. Did order a large glass of that wine.

What a massive disappointment! Can only think that other reviewers went to a different restaurant. Should have smelled trouble when the server opened with "we are known as a brewery". Restaurant is an embarrassment. The only winner is the company with the salt concession. French onion soup was so salty it was inedible. Complained to the server who's only response was "oh?". Obviously I was at fault, not the chef. New York strip was so tough and stringy I could hardly eat it. Ordered the Dianne sauce and had to scrape it off. Again WAY too salty. The chef's special steak was equally unappetizing. The Gorgonzola treatment was equally inedible. If you are a starving student maybe it's ok, but anyone with tastebuds should stay away.
