Our appetizer of stuffed artichoke had so many different things on it that it was totally overdone. My entree was linguini with shrimp and the data was sitting in a bowl of hot water

Our waiter brought a dessert menu before our entrees came - we think he forgot to put in our dinner order.

The waitress was great and very sweet. The food was mediocre at best.
The ambiance is pretty but the lights are too bright and there was no music.

Crabcakes were not fresh and very fishy tasting. Something was not right. We sent them back. Tuna was not cooked to the temperature ordered. Thai shrimp appetizer was fried shrimp and menu does not state fried. We were very disappointed in the whole meal.

My wife and I went for our anniversary. The staff was very nice, the food was really great. The only 2 minor issues were that the restaurant was very warm, we were sweating at the table. Also, the acoustics were a challenge. We were talking very loud trying to hear each other above the noise. Those weren’t show stoppers for us, it just meant the experience wasn’t the best it could be due to those minor things.

I decided to take my kids and their boyfriends and girlfriends out for a special dinner because it was Smithtown restaurant week. We got there at 5:30 PM and the waitress was fantastic. My issue was with the kitchen. The food came out incorrectly, and the wait for appetizers was way too long.Once the appetizers were over it took about another half hour before dinner was served. As there were seven of us half of us received our meal, and the other half waited for quite some time. My daughter didn’t receive her meal until two other people in the party had completed their meal. Dinner took so long that my wife and daughter had to leave for an appointment that they had at 7 o’clock. The five of us who remained ordered dessert, and that took another half hour before it came. I recognize that the restaurant was busy, but my dessert was two scoops of ice cream that when it arrived was completely melted. I was so grossly disappointed with the service that I don’t know if I can return to the chop shop. I have had parties there I have had dinners there and I have been a loyal patron of the chop shop, but this time I was just too disappointed. I have overlookedSome shortcomings in the past, but last night the shortcomings were to egregious.

Good was pretty decent for the price. The only complaint was service was extremely slow. But all restaurants are having that problem because no one can get help these days.

We decided to visit the Chop Shop during the first day of restaurant week. The reservation was made on line without any difficulty. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Ordering of drinks was delayed. There were no beers available on tap. Ordering our dinner was slow. We ordered off of the restaurant week menu. Server Marcus was polite and friendly but made no effort to establish a rapport. Serving of drinks was slow. Server Marcus apologized for the delay in serving our appetizers. Appetizers were served after a delay and food runner asked where each appetizer was to be served. Dinners were slow served. Food runner asked where each dinner was to be served. Marcus never came to check on our satisfaction. The steak dinner was very good. The pork dinner was very good. The seafood on risotto was terrible and could not be eaten. The taste was as if something was bad. Marcus never checked. The dessert order was slow to be taken and the was in excess of 20 minutes. The check was presented including excessive prices for one beer, one iced tea and one lemonade. Nine dollars for a beer, four and five dollars for lemonade and iced tea is unreasonable. Overall, service was poor, one dinner was terrible, and our overall visit left much to be desired.

I love prime rib, it’s my go to meal at most high end restaurants. I saw there was a horseradish prime rib, I ordered it. It came out and looked nice, and I was so disappointed. The server (Melvin I believe) came over and asked how everything was, I ate the broccolini, and told him that I didn’t like the prime rib. He said I’m sorry would you like anything else, I said no ( I ate my boyfriends short ribs, which were delicious) he takes my plate away, and we get the bill, and the prime rib is still on there. If I had known he would make me pay for a meal I had two bites of, I would’ve brought it home to my 3 dogs.. I’ve never experienced this from a restaurant . I just opened up a business across the street and I will be sharing this experience with others as a warning. I was so excited to try this place, and I am so disappointed. If I was paying for food I didn’t enjoy, Atleast offer to wrap it if you were comping it to give to my animals. As someone who worked in the restaurant industry for 10+ years, and who’s family owns a diner, this was embarrassing for a “nice” establishment.

Came here for lunch and made a reservation which was not necessary as we were the only 2 people in the establishment. Sat at the table for about 10 minutes before the waiter came over to ask if we wanted a drink. We decided place the order when he did finally come over as we did not want to continue to wait. The food came out fairly quickly, but while we were eating, the waiter did not come over once to check on us. Food was good - service was awful for a quiet day.
