Thank you so much for seating us in the semi-private area, a table with 2 red velvet chairs on the 2nd floor looking down to the 1st floor. The food was amazing! I forgot our waiters name (it was a Sunday night April 22nd @ 7:00 reservation) but anyways he gave us great service, he was great! Great personality, and any recommendation on food he gave us lived up to his word. The food was outstanding! It was a really great anniversary and you guys made it all the better!

While this was,after all, restaurant week offering an establishment the opportunity to impress, it did not. The salmon offering was a mere partial filet. It lacked flavor while being dry and hard. The broccoli was undercooked and cold. The prime rib, priced in the second tier, was good but average. The dollop of mashed potato was the tastiest part of the meals.

Went for anniversary- Janos was our waiter- he is excellent. Made sure every detail was covered. Filet and lobster cooked perfectly. My espresso martinis delicious. Oysters- great and the mignonette perfect. The cream brulee so tasty. We'll be back!

I have only been here twice so have limited experience with the menu and none with the wine list, but I know that everyone in my parties both times loved their dinners. Desserts are impressive. Portions are generous. Waiters were: very good the first time (larger party) and amazingly talented this last time (party of two). The place is beyond beautiful. Awesome dining experience in every sense.

Terrible how they can even call this a 5 star is a joke ! I will let everyone I know steaks at Texas de Brazil farrrr better and in order to even sit at your tiny little cramped table you have to be a gymnast to menouver around other tables and people, never again. Oh ya the broccoli tastes like it just came out of the freezer queen bag!!!!!

The best steakhouse anywhere in the country! If you like the best, thick cut prime steaks served seared on a very hot plate this is it! Even compared to Chicago and NYC.
And I don’t work there.

Wow, can't say enough nice things about this evening. The Chop House met all of mine and my adult son's expectations, and restaurant week prices were very palatable indeed! Delicious prime rib accompanied by creamy potatoes, al dente broccoli, and a glass of Shiraz, awesome! Delightful cheese cake and fresh coffee was our choice for dessert. Although it was Friday evening and busy, the staff let us take our time and enjoy the ambiance of this special occasion shared between this Mom and her son!

My Dad's 70th Birthday was coming up and I live in Florida and could not attend. I reserved their seating on the website and paid by purchasing gift cards online and having them held at the restaurant. I had several special requests for the host on the phone which were all met with pleasure. I asked that my Dad be given an Amaretto Sour upon arrival and he was met with one at the door. My Dad has run fine dining restaurants for his whole life and couldn't say enough about his experience. His exact words when he called after the dinner: "Service was impeccable, food was exquisite, the whole evening was truly a delight." In addition to such a great experience, he was given gift cards by the management to come back another day. I cannot wait to get home so I can try this restaurant out firsthand. Thanks to the Chophouse for making this occasion so memorable for my family.

Went for local restaurant week. Great decor, atmosphere and comfort befitting an upscale steakhouse. Food was delicious. My short ribs were tender and flavorful. My wife's filet was undercooked but corrected quickly by our waiter to her satisfaction. Potatoes were whipped, not mashed as stated on the menu- a small disappointment as we prefer mashed, but they were good anyway. Prices were OK for the promotion, but the standard menu was too pricey, so we probably would only return if there was another promotion.

Food and wine was exceptional, but waiter didn't allow us to take advantage of the birthday deal because it was restaurant week even though we didn't order of that menu.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were greeted by friendly staff and as we left we were thanked for dining there. The bartender, Micki, was knowledgeable and social and when asked, she explained the original use of this gorgeous building. The whole dining experience was beyond our expectations. We dined during Restaurant Week and the short rib special was superb and a great value! Both appetizers and entree were delicious (putting it mildly) and our wait staff was friendly and professional. A special thank you to Micki, James and Luke!

The food was excellent. I had the king cut prime rib and took half of it home. My wife had sea scallops and filet mignon and was very impressed. The wait staff was very attentive and the manager stopped by a couple of times to ask us how our meal was. Overall a very enjoyable experience

Have eaten at the Buffalo Chop House many times and have always enjoyed it. Don't let the prices scare you, if you enjoy everything (and my wife and I always do) then you won't fixate on the bill but remember the experience.

As always, our visit more than met our expectations from the moment I pulled my car up to the valet parking attendant. My steak was done exactly as requested and the remainder of our meal was absolutely delicious. My wife and I both enjoyed the side of grilled asparagus. The service was typically attentive and since we dined fairly early on a Monday night, the downstairs was reasonably quiet and afforded an opportunity for pleasant conversation. Since we were celebrating my birthday, the special free dinner entree made the evening even more special.

Food was out of this world ..pricy though. if your birthday is within the time limit you get 50$ off the bill.. no privacy is you sit at a table for 2...you are right on top of the next table so that is odd. The bartender was in a bad mood and was yelling at the servers..I dont think the customers should hear that.

This was my 3rd visit to the Chophouse. 2nd time with Janos as our waiter. He is an excellent waiter and entertainer. The food is always a treat to the taste buds. Meats cooked to perfection, sides of delicious combinations and the vegetables never overcooked. Starters always tempt your hunger with yellow fin tuna to candied slab bacon to stuffed banana peppers. Appetizers and sides are plentiful for sharing. Ending on a sweet note, desserts you can't say no to. Rich, fresh and creamy. Something for everyone and again, plenty to share. The Buffalo Chop House is definitely one of my top dining choices. I only wish it was closer to me (I live 90 miles away) that I could enjoy it more often.

The dinner and service was amazing! The Buffalo Chophouse helped to make my birthday celebration complete. I received $50 off my meal because it was my birthday and then at the end of our meal we both received a $40 certificate to use the next time we come. The valet, bartender, server, and manager made it all so special. Thank you to everyone that was working April 3, 2018!
