Honestly, we haven't eaten at a restaurant in ages. The outside seating on a comfortable street made this an easy choice for my birthday brunch. The QR code ordering worked great and food/drinks came out quickly! The food was as fantastic as I remembered from the pre-pandemic times.
My husband ordered a Shirley Temple and it was FANTASTIC! I know that sounds silly, but the maraschino syrup was delicious, not that bright red goop you usually get.
My margarita was also very good.

The food was great it’s just that our chop salads we’re supposed to have avocado and I checked no potatoes and neither was fulfilled

Came for a social activity with friends. Service was overall good but a bit spotty (waited a long time for the bill). It was really nice overall, great spot to gather and chat over nice drinks and food.

We got a gift coupon in the mail and thought,, Why not, it exceeded expectations. Great drinks. Old fashioned for me, hot toddy for my wife. It was 40 degrees. Then came the appetizers. Guacamole and pork belly tacos. Guacamole was on the spicy side but I think that makes it more authentic. We split a burger for dinner. Definitely upgrade to the garlic fries.

The food was fantastic! The Reuben sandwich was one of the best I’ve had and rave reviews went out for the delicious hamburger. Neighborhood gem! It was a nice touch to receive a thank you note from the restaurant after our visit.

It inhabits a mediocre zone of food. I ordered a New York steak. Things are priced high but not high enough to be really good. In the mediocre zone no one is really happy - I felt I paid too much for what I got. It’s better to be low cost, or high cost high value. I think the “chop” in the name confused me (as in a “chop house”). It’s basically like a pub, with over priced, tarted up pub food.

Love Chop Bar. It's a great neighborhood restaurant. The service is great. While the food is not cutting edge spectacular (it leans toward the bar food category), it is very solid, well-prepared and tasty; just a solid dining experience. The staff is very friendly, which to me defines the neighborhood bar/restaurant experience.

Lovely to sit outside at one of their comfortable sidewalk tables for a leisurely Sunday brunch on a sunny autumn afternoon. The service is sincerely friendly, unobtrusive, and prompt. The food is unpretentious and deeply delicious, especially the burger and the hash. First-class wine, beer, and beverage menu. Skateboarders can be a brief annoyance, but that’s not the restaurant’s fault. Loved our meal here and will definitely return.

The service was fine. It took quite awhile to get our food… a table that was next to us came after we did and received their food before us. Food wasn’t all that great… Mac and cheese didn’t really have too much of a flavor profile and the chicken I got was very dry. Horchata was insanely sweet and on the thicker side. Bfs burger was alright for him but he had a giant ball of unmelted cheese being covered by melted cheese so it was a bit strange. Probably won’t come back. But the apple crisp was absolutely delicious. Might give it another go later down the road but for now I’ll pass.

I ordered chicken fettucine, hubby had ribs. Both were phenomenal! Drinks were flavorful and unique - tried both mezcal cocktails. Lollikoi was fruity, refreshing and tropical. Can't remember the other name, but it was spirit forward and delicious! Service was good, option to order via qr code or in person were nice touches. I hadn't been to this spot in years, loved it in the past and it is going to be my new fave!!

Arrived on a rainy evening and ate outside where the service was excellent (in contrast to other Oakland restaurants that seem to forget you once they've seated you outside.) Food, as always, very good (mussels!) I would have sat inside, except that while they had the standard mask requirement, there was no vaccine requirement, and I didn't want to be exposed to the virus.

This is one of my favorite restaurants because of its consistency with grape at food and service. This time unfortunately they fell short on the service aspect. We opted for the paper menu and wait service instead of the QR code. Our appetizers came in before our drinks came in and the our enter canine in less than 5 minutes after getting the appetizers! Our drinks came after 10 minutes of getting outer main course. The cauliflower soup which was supposed to come during the first course arrived 20 minutes after we received our main course! I requested for bread twice and never received the bread.The food and wine were the only things that saved the meal. The heirloom tomato salad was fabulous as was the succotash and soup. Our main courses were great, the oxtail poutine and seafood stew.
