Had a 7pm reservation; took 20 minutes to take our drink order, 45 before we ordered appetizers and at almost 8pm we hadn't ordered our meal yet. Waiter seemed extremely preoccupied by other tables. Even when he finally came over to take our order, without asking if we wanted appetizers, he was barely listening to the person ordering, instead was trying to signal to another waiter about something else for another table. He ended up 'apologizing' later in the meal, and brought a complimentary appetizer and side dish for the wait. The food was good, maybe not so much for the price. The thing that ended up making our experience good instead of fair was Tyler, who was very attentive, humorous and engaging with our party. He definitely made our otherwise 2 star experience much better.

I didnt like how close we were seated next to the other diners. I didnt know if the hostess was gonna introduce the couple next to us or if we were to introduce myself. When my girl went to the bathroom, it was extremely awkward because i was now alone and had no choice but to hear their conversation. But they knew i could hear them so i guess it wasnt eves dropping.
Also, we ordered the seafood platter and were never given or offered melted butter. Even when i ordered the lobster with my steak i had to ask for better. Weird! But the food was amazing and i am still licking my lips over that filet right now.

The food was outstanding. The service was very good. However, this is not the place to go if you're on a budget. Not sure it was worth the price but it was the best steak I ever had. If you are having drinks and appetizers plus your meal plan on spending at least a $100 per person. Nothing comes with the entree you have to order everything separately.

They need to update the prices on Open Tables menu. For example, open table shows side of béarnaise for $3 but on the restaurant menu it’s up to $4.50.

Steaks were of high quality and excellent taste. Service was also very good. Seating location was horrible as we were seated right next to the servers station. My wife was constantly distracted by all of the servers jammed into the area between the server station and their bar station. She had a constant concern of being hit by a server or a tray and was distracted throughout dinner. They did at one point even knock her purse off of her chair as two servers squeezed by at the same time. This is a very nice restaurant but to jam one more two top into an area where servers are working is a bad idea and seems inappropriate given the prices on the menu and the atmosphere they are trying to create. No restaurant should need the revenue from that extra two seats.

The service was great, and prices were normal for a steakhouse. Ambience in the bar was great and I would have given it 5 stars, but we were seated in the back room which made it feel more like a banquet area. It was ugly in there and the cushions on the benches were ripped. The bread basket, soup, and one of the entrees were good. The filet mignon and the sides were good, but not great, which was disappointing. What made it worse, though, was the Demi-glace. The flavor of it was awful and it left an awful after taste. Good place for a nice occasion, but I’d definitely avoid the filet in the future.

Have been to the Chop House on several occasions, but this time I was not impressed. Was there for a birthday celebration and while the desk staff did offer a gift certificate for $40, that was all. No happy birthday song, no complementary dessert, no chocolate dipped strawberry with a candle. Nothing. I will take my birthday dinners elsewhere

Our server was Kevin and he was very nice. We were dumped by Todd for a bigger table it seemed.
It took a really long time to get our entrees- I think someone forgot about them- but other than that the food was very good- Short Ribs were a bit fatty- but everything else was superb.

The service was excellent as was the ambiance. Our waiter was excellent and very pleasant. I would suggest a better beer menu. Their offerings were limited and very ordinary. We ordered steaks which were excellent but the side of broccoli was also very ordinary. I have eaten at Morton's Steakhouse several times which should be a comparable comparison and would rate Morton's a bit above The Buffalo Chophouse.

I enjoyed my evening at the Chop House. The food was nice and so was the atmosphere. However we were on the second floor. The tables were way to close. You could not get into your seat without disturbing the people at the next table. For that reason I will think twice before going back.
