We had a mid-day lunch gathering and we sat outside...The service was great and friendly..they continuously check on us. The food came out quickly...My burger was a bit overcooked but other than that I enjoyed the cocktail (Maracuya) and the apps.

I practically live at Chop Bar these days. It’s the only place I know of in Oakland where you can reserve outdoor seating, park relatively easily, and get great food/cocktails. It is Oakland’s foodie answer to the delta variant.

The Bloody Marys tasted odd. Too citrusy. The atmosphere and location were great. Food was good but not for the money IMO. Staff was also very friendly and helpful.

So glad that Chop Bar has made it through the worst of the pandemic. Great food and drinks, wonderful service, and you can’t beat the weather this time of year, on this side of the Bay.

The food was fantastic but service wasn’t great at all from the time we walked in. My sister and I were celebrating my boyfriends bday. We weren’t ever greeted so we just sat down to only never have a server acknowledge us for at least 10 whole mins. Lol. I had to keep walking to the bar to ask questions and the staff seemed as if I was bothering them. Finally a server Nancy came to rescue us as I’m sure she saw and heard we were considering leaving and frustrated. She was the ONLY person out of 5 that acknowledged and was pleasant. I won’t be returning but I admit the food was great.

Chop Bar has been a favorite since my days living close by. The team is friendly and on top of it. I’m assuming they treat their people well because they seem to not have a lot of turnover. The food and drinks are always spot on. I can’t think of a time when I’ve had something there that wasn’t pleasing. I definitely recommend trying them out.

STILL good after all this time. Had the Chop Bar Bacon Cheese Burger with Garlic Fries and the Ground Stew Farms Heirloom Tomato Salad. The burger was its usual goodness and the Tomato Salad was OUTSTANDING as was Vicky who recommended a new drink since they do not carry Tito's. Wheatly's I think it was, had a nice flavor profile.

Nice dinner. Like the new location. I was a little disappointed in the service and that our wait person never came back to really check on things and never gave us an opportunity to order a second beverage. Also, my son ordered the fried chicken which was supposed to come with garlic mashed potatoes. It was delivered with a bunch of french fries that kind of looked like leftovers (compared to the fresh ones with my burger) and no one bothered to let us know that they were out of mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were part of why he ordered the fried chicken! We will go back. We understand that a lot of restaurants are still getting up to speed after the pandemic.

Loved people watching out the big windows. The mussels were fantastic with just enough spice. Manhattans excellent but where was my Luxardo? Meatloaf and Rigatoni were exceptional. Can’t wait to go again.

Our food took quite a while to come, but the server acknowledged this, apologized, and brought us complimentary chips & guacamole. Other restaurants, take note: THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT! When my salad finally came, it was honestly quite underwhelming (and I'm pretty sure it wasn't even what I ordered), but by that point I was just happy to get some food. I was also so impressed with how they handled the delay that I couldn't bring myself to complain. I've been coming to Chop Bar since they first opened, and will continue to come here as long as they maintain that level of service.

We were so well cared for! We had a party of 4, a baby, and sat outside. The staff was overwhelmed but handled it with poise, bringing us a snack and extra drink at no charge when the kitchen was backed up. Everyone we had contact with was wonderful, every bit of food was delicious, and I’m still having daydreams about the cocktails.

Its probably because they just reopened, but the taste or off tastes of the dishes was subpar for costs. Rarely do I leave dishes half to one quarter eaten, but such was the case on my last trip. Also the off the phone ordering has made this restaurant inattentive to basic course plate removal.

Quite noisy. I do like their policy: we (legally) assume you’re vaccinated if you’re massless…

Burger was good. A little overdone. Pork chop was a little UNDER done. Fries were very good.

We waited at the door for quite some time before being greeted. Eventually a less than enthusiastic person came over and showed us to our table. I’m pretty sure she didn’t smile once. After ordering, it took 20 minutes to get drinks (one cocktail and 3 sodas) and then at least another 15 to get our food. No one seemed happy to be there, didn’t check in on us. Probably won’t go back.
