    Great atmosphere. Feels like a first-rate NYC steak house. But the service did not. Our server was nice, but inattentive and a little too “fun” and not serious enough about his job. When you’re paying THESE kind of prices $$$$$ the service needs to be pitch perfect and professional. I think our server either needed help (no bussers or other front-of-house support colleagues whatsoever) or needed the tables in his section to be fewer/closer together. Our food service was VERY slow and we sat for a long time after dinner with dirty dishes and no bussing - nor were we offered dessert, coffee, aperitifs. A missed opportunity for us to spend more $$$$$. It seemed to me that our server perhaps didn't receive the kind of training that would coincide with this level of pricing. He just missed it at every turn (empty water glasses - even after we asked twice for water, dropped a knife at my feet while STACKING plates to clear the table and never came back to pick it up). And, the table where we were seated has a curtain behind it to allow kitchen staff to leave to go outside to an exterior walk-in cooler. Every time they came and went the curtain blew into our chairs and it just felt odd to have folks moving around right behind you that you couldn’t see. Oh, and not having bearnaise sauce at a steak restaurant was a miss. We will try returning some time - the atmosphere and food quality were worth another shot. But I would expect the service to be substantially better to earn my repeat business. If this were a casual dining establishment - the service would have been “OK” - but for a $70 steak plus salad, plus side dishes, plus drinks/wine (right around $150 per person) Chophouse 119 needs to up its service game by a lot.

    Ok, but should be much better: drinks took 20-25 mins in a 1/3 full dining room; tomahawk ribeye was ordered medium rare but was cool to the touch in the middle - rare by definition; sides were weak (carrots undercooked, Lyonnaise potatoes tasteless); and even though we were in middle section - not next to the saxophonist - music was intrusive. The good: server tried his best, even with these obstacles; and space is nice. The space has been open a year, so all these kinks should have been worked out by now.

    Very disappointing. The food was average at best. Service was average. Prices for what we received were ridiculous and we often splurge at fine dining places. This is a waste of an evening.

    The chop houses that I have frequented pride themselves on their top-notch service, impeccable food and beautiful ambiance. The ambience of the restaurant was beautiful, it has a 1920s feel which I love. It took about 10 minutes to get water as our waitress was handling tables in different areas. When the waitress arrived, she offered us regular water, sparkling or distilled water. Anyone who’s from this area whether it be Savannah or Hilton head knows that the water taste is not that great. It tastes like it comes right out of the ocean. We assumed with this being a Chophouse that the water would be filtered, we ordered it and it wasn’t So we ended up asking for sparkling water instead. The bread that they serve at the table arrived, and it was completely burnt on the bottom. My husband and I both ordered fillets, one with horseradish butter, and one with maitre D hotel butter, a wedge salad and shared a loaded potato. The chop salad was very good, it had the right amount of dressing and toppings. When the steak and potato arrived, the plates were cold and the butter toppings for the steaks came on the side, cold and mine still had the paper wrapping around it. Every steakhouse that I’ve ever been to when ordering butter toppers for steaks have always come on top of the steak melted never cold and on the side. The steak was cooked nicely and had great flavor and serving size of the potato was good for two people, and it tasted good. For dessert I ordered a crème brûlée, and sadly it was underwhelming. The Maitre D that walked around did more chatting with the hostess then actually checking with the customers to see how everything was. Sadly, with the price point of this restaurant we won’t be returning.

    Guitar player/singer was way too loud for the space. Couldn’t even hear the host while standing at the host station; couldn’t have a conversation during dinner; service was mediocre; it was restaurant week and had to ask for that menu; food was just OK; creme brûlée… well, no idea what it was, definitely not creme brûlée. We understand that we ordered off restaurant week menu, but my salmon was a sliver, with nothing else on the plate… likewise for my husband’s prime rib…. An extremely thin cut without a sign of pink throughout (ordered it medium rare). Sadly, we’ll never return.

    Let me explain we went for resturant week and understood the portion would be smaller and understood that and we were okay with it. It took over a half an hour to deliver our drinks. We sat down at 6 and it was almost 7 before drinks order was taken and delivered. But they serve a great drink! We ordered the prime rib and understood it was 8 oz which was perfect size! But it was so thin I could not cut or taste it. I actually don’t know how they could cut it! I would have rather they cut it an inch thicker and cut it to 8 oz. That way I could have judged! The side were too salty and sent them back. The singer was great but we couldn’t talk because we were right in front of him. The place is beautiful inside and bar looked wonderful. Would go back to sit at bar but not for dinner.

    Chop House 119 is a beautiful restaurant, and the help staff are very attentive and professional. We went on the night that Bobby Ryder was playing, and he was absolutely fabulous. We ate from the fixed price menu. Calamari was very good. Lamb rack was perfectly cooked and delicious, however the portion was two little lollipop chops. Barely enough to fill a cavity. The Creme Brulée was not good. The custard was spongy, and there was no crystallized sugar layer on top, which is the way I expect to find Creme Brulee. Overall, it was a very pleasant evening, mostly due to the wonderful music of Bobby Ryder, and the courtesy of all the help, including the managers.

    We went for restaurant week and the 8 oz prime rib was no more than 4 oz. They were out of crème brûlée and gave me a dried out chocolate cake. The bartender was new and clearly overwhelmed. Took forever to get a drink but he was very nice!

    The ambience and interior design is great, the best on the island. The food is OK. We had the pork chop, which was huge and pretty good (kind of dry). We also had the mussels, which were inedible. The waiter gave us 1/3 discount on the mussels, of which we tried only two. The bread was the best we’ve had 8n a long time.

    Went for Restaurant week and it was fantastic food. The iceberg salad was so much easier to negotiate than a wedge salad. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly although a bit too salty. The flourless chocolate cake would have greatly benefitted from some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. The biggest drawback was that our table was directly across from the evening’s very talented singer. We loved him and he sang many songs that we all loved. The downside, it was impossible to carry on a conversation while he sang.

    We dine at the Chop House just about every Friday night. So what brings us back? We must say, first of all it is the attentive staff, the ambiance is fantastic - art work, chandeliers, ceiling & wine rooms. The food is great, music top notch, wine and drinks so good. What more would you want in a restaurant? We have our 6 favorite placeson Hilton Head Island, Chop House is at the top. Lou L

    Our first time there. This place has a great ambiance but very pricey. We were celebrating a birthday. The birthday was acknowledged when we were seated but nothing special done for the birthday person. Food was excellent. It was restaurant week and portions provided for that menu was very small (1/4 inch prime rib). 2 people ordered off the regular menu and serving size was awesome. Be aware that entrees do not come with any sides. Sides are ordered separately and are a shareable size. Our waitress was wonderful. Cocktails were good at $17 each.

    Ambience was very good— loved the live music but the food was just not there. Ordered a $170 tomahawk steak medium and came out rare in center and full of tendons. Tried to have them cook it some more but they were under staffed so just ate the edges and took the rest home to cook the next night myself. Just not worth the money spent.

    I thought the food and service were excellent. In my opinion the fact that you had to pay extra for the vegetables and potato (during resturant week) was a surprise; should have been included in pice fix. The oysters were small and over priced. Overall I thought the prices were higher than comparable resturants in the area during resturant week especially.

    Enjoyed a birthday celebration there last night. Used the restaurant week menu which was excellent. Had chicken entre with meatball appetizer, and cheesecake for desert. The meatball appetizer was remarkable. Rey good and different taste. Entre was excellent and cheesecake was very creamy. Will definitely go back and recommend to others.

    We had an awesome experience. It started with great drinks at the bar. Some live music which was really good. They even accommodated my husband’s request since he has problems with certain chairs and they changed them out for us. He ordered the Spanish Octopus. I am not the biggest fan of Octopus, but I must say this was one of the best dishes I have had. It was so tender and had great flavors. I highly recommend it. We went for restaurant week, but ended up ordering off the menu. We had the Porterhouse for two. We like it well (I know don’t say it) and they did a great job!! It was delicious. We didn’t order any sauce or butters which I might do that in the future, but it really didn’t need it. It was a nice date night. I has a very nice cool atmosphere. By our experience I recommend it for sure

    Absolutely great meal. Great service. Only issue was we were seated close to the front door, and it was a very cold night. We will definitely be back. Best meal I've had in quite awhile.
