I’ve had their NY Strip 10-12 times over the years. Always perfect. The best strip anywhere, but for $59, it better be. This time, not seasoned the same as in the past and quality was not typical 5 star perfect, but strip steaks are a finicky steak. They stopped serving the feta/olive plate with bread. This was a fine touch that they simply took away. Odd. Very disappointing for me, but not a deal breaker. Other entrees were very solid as were the sides and salads. Best NY Cheesecake in the world! All agreed and we don’t typically order cheesecake. Service was excellent! At these prices, it MUST be perfect. Typically is a 10 on a scale of 1-10. This time an 8 on steaks.

Dinner was great. Service was wonderful. It was my husbands birthday. They acknowleged it at the hostess desk, also the young man who served water, but waiter didn't seem to know. I was to embarressed to see if he would get a free steak for his birthday. Other then that food was very good!

Took the server almost 10 minutes to greet our table. We ordered the burrata which was amazing! We got 2 steaks (one medium rare and one medium) and the brusell sprouts with bacon as a side. My 8oz filet was cooked perfectly. However the other steak was cooked to a medium-well/well. A little disappointing.

Brussels sprouts are perfectly done. Fries are a delicious treat. Steak was perfect for the carnivore and my lobster tail, while not as perfect as a Maine lobster, was delicious. Our server Everett put up with our shenanigans and we will be back!

This was my first time here. The ambience and atmosphere were phenomenal. For the prices I was expecting exceptional food, and I would say this restaurant is quite overpriced. The calamari and parm truffle fries were the highlight of the meal. I expected the steaks to have more flavor than they did but they were fine. Chocolate cake was HUGE, but was very basic flavors. Again i just expected much more for a $300 meal.

Chris was amazing! Super pleasant, polite and respectful. The ambiance was a little quiet where we felt like we had to whisper at the table, but the venue was beautiful! Food was out of this world. Some of the best filets we have ever had. My only complaint is the prices. Everything is priced separately and sides do not come with the $50+ steaks. Probably the most expensive restaurant in Buffalo.

I love that the parking was great and that we were seated immediately. I did not like at all where I was sitting at my table is right near the kitchen door a very high traffic area for your workers and in some cases running not just walking fast quite annoying as well as the noise coming from the kitchen.

Wife and I both got the 8 oz fillet. Excellent! Started with a shrimp cocktail (huge shrimp!) and an AHI Tuna appetizer which was also very good. Service was outstanding, attentive and available without being pesky. Absolutely nothing bad to say.

Let me start by saying we love this place. Ambiance is great, food is typically exemplary and so is the service. Tuesday evening however was an exception to the rule. Despite very few patrons, our waiter was cold, if not unfriendly, and appeared to rush us from the moment we sat down. It was not attentiveness but pushy if not blatantly unfriendly. The food was subpar, the $59 strip steak was ordered medium rare and arrived, at best, medium well. I declined the offer to replace it in that I did not want my wife eating alone while the kitchen redid my meal. An offer was made for a complimentary drink but when the staff discovered it was my wife’s birthday, and we were to receive a discount because of the occasion, the response was, “okay, we’ll do that instead”. They offer that discount as an advertisement and incentive to everyone, it had nothing to do with the poor food quality. All in all we were disappointed. Chophouse is a great restaurant, one we frequently choose to celebrate special times. We will do so again, without question. But this was not the Buffalo Chophouse experience we had hoped for.

I brought my girlfriends here for their birthday. I had not dined here in some years however I was expecting the same level of quality in the food and service. I had the blackened salmon which was decent. The cornbread in the center of the meal was very dry and should not have even been plated. Everything else about the meal was very good. We weren’t asked if we wanted any additional drinks outside of the first one we had for whatever reason. Our server was decent, in my opinion he could have done more to make the experience for my friends birthday experience, since it was their first time dining here, more enjoyable. I don’t feel he was pleasant at all. Buffalo Chophouse is supposed to be one of the premier restaurants in Buffalo and the service was just mediocre. Visiting this 5 star restaurant I would expect above average service from arrival to departure. I would recommend if the items I mentioned and addressed because that alone make the dining experience more pleasurable.

It was my first time going there and you have to go all out if you're going to a place like this because it's not to often you get to fine dine. The experience was great. The ambiance was perfect, the music was great, the food was phenomenal.

I ate here for a special occasion and I do not regret coming one bit. The service was the first thing that stood out for being fantastic. The staff were friendly, attentive, and seemed to be happy to be there relative to staff at other places. I don't think our drinks ever emptied and the waiter was verify informative about the menu.
We had to wait a hot minute before we got some bread, and it came about a minute before our ordered food which makes me think the bread had been forgotten. I had the 16oz NY strip and it was the best steak that I've ever had. It was thick, heavily seasoned, and cooked to perfection. My girlfriend got the lobster mac and cheese and we split an order of fries. Both of this items were delicious. The great food was well worth the price in my opinion.
I would only ever come here for a special occasion which is why some, rather knit-picky things, brought the atmosphere down for me. First, there are some small (I would guess but could be wrong) decorative maintenance issues. For example, one of the neon letters in the "Chophouse" sign needed to replaced, and there were a bunch of empty screw anchors in the wall next to out table that were ugly. Second, there were some guests who came very dressed down in my opinion. Like, sweat pants and a graphic tee with a hat on, dressed down. Part of me thinks "who cares" and that everyone (me in this case) should just mind there business. The other part of me wanted to have a special, fancy dinner and can't ignore that other guests play a role in creating the atmosphere of that experience.
Overall, I really enjoyed my dinner and would come again. I would recommend Chophouse to a friend.
