The food was excellent The service was very good. Only complaint was whoever made the Vodka Martini should go back to bartender school It was basically water and olives
One of us had the New York Strip which was prepared perfectly and the flavor received rave reviews. The other two of us had that evenings special, the Times Square" steak. We're guessing it was a bad cut of meat because they both were stringy and tough. The greens and potatoes were very good. We'll probably give them another chance since it's hard to knock the for receiving a bad cut of meat.
Chopin's is the only restaurant we go to for fine quality seafood. The service, food portions and great tasting food has always been spot on.. We've been coming here for over 3 years and never left saying it wasn't as good as the last time.. You won't be disappointed..
The salmon and scallops are delicious
My wife and I went for our anniversary. Food was excellent service was adequate.
The food is always excellent, although a little pricey. We both had the Halibut, which is beyond compare. Go hungry the portion size of the Halibut is large. I couldn’t recommend a restaurant more. One of our favorites. A family owned business which we love to support. Ambiance is subdued and quiet.
Excellent food and service. Best salad - Mother Earth!
We celebrated a 50th Birthday Party and were treated like Kings and Queens! The food was incredible, as was the service. A special birthday cake was made for us as well and was fantastic! We will absolutely be back!! Highly recommend Choplin's to EVERYONE!!
Choplin’s always has the best seafood around Lake Norman. This is our go-to spot for any special occasion.
A chef opens a restaurant and makes great food for his patrons. The way restaurants were meant to be.
It was wonderful. Getting drinks and appetizers a little slow in beginning but well worth the wait!
Great food. Missed it during shutdown.
The staff was amazing and the service was personalized and top notch! The food is top rate and they are not shy to customize to your wants. Highly recommend that you try Choplins for dinner or a special occasion. It’s on our favorites list now!
the appetizers and salads were very good. the entrees were another story. mashed potatoes weren't good and the various meats we had were either too fatty or not cooked the correct temperature. service was also underwhelming. we actually thought it was the waiter's first day... salads came out about 2 minutes before we received the entree and the wait was about 40 min....
Food was very good recommending the filet mignon French onion soup
The food was excellent as was the service. We felt very safe,eating there.
Exceptional food and service. When we thought about all the restaurants we could go to for our anniversary, we chose Choplin’s because we could depend on their consistent high quality and wonderful staff.
Always excellent food
Best eats around! My wife’s and my favorite place to go
This was such an enjoyable experience, the food was amazing. The Australian lamb chops were the best I have ever put in my mouth. Usually there is somewhat of a gamey taste to lamb but Chief did an amazing job of getting ride of any such flavors. This dinner was delectable and we shall return. Great for special occasions or a date night!!!
Had a reservation for a Saturday evening. The restaurant was busy but we were seated promptly. Our waitress was attentive and knew the menu well. My husband and I both ordered a steak. The steak was well seasoned and cooked to order. Overall an outstanding experience. Food is excellent!
We arrived at our reservation time. Waited about 15 minutes to be seated. There were 4-5 people waiting as we arrived. Not sure how long they had been waiting but they left without being seated. They had a very large party in another room witch made the hostess run around trying to help everyone else. As I was sitting at the bar I was never offered a drink. She walked behind the bar and and right out. Very unorganized!! Once we were seated. We were given or menu which was completely different than the online menu. As I’m aware they change out their menu daily but not completely. There were a few things listed that were the same. It took awhile to even get our wine. Waited and waited for the bread to be brought out which turned out to be tasteless, unfortunately. Then waited and waited for our meal to be served. I had the Halibut and it was good, not great. My husband had the scallops and he said they were good, not great.
I realize this may have been a off night with the party but they should have planned accordingly. Grant you this was on a Wednesday night. I can say we were a little disappointed. We will probably not return
We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary with our kids. Reservations were made for 7:30 but didn’t get seated until after 8pm. Server didn’t refill any drinks and because it was a large party we were forced to pay the 20% gratuity anyways which meant she got a tip of $87.07 and barely did her job. Then when I got home I looked on my bank account and I was charged for the meal twice. Now I have a hold for $423 and $336 on my card and I can’t even call them to reverse it because they’re close till Monday 5:30. Very upset that I’m out of my money until the hold falls off or when I call the restaurant.... Update now the money has been take out of my account twice. Once with the gratuity that she didn’t deserve and once without!!!
This by far the very best place to eat at Lake Norman!! The food is always great! I have never ate a bad meal or been disappointed. Service is good & Food is AMAZING!!!
Been there about 3 times. Food is always consistently very good. I love the lamb lollipops but other things are good as well. Service is always great too. They could use a little updating on the decor but otherwise I would highly recommend it.
Food is always good. Brussels sprout app is excellent. A little expensive. But if you are gonna get good food ..... you have to pay for it...
The food was great. Didn’t get what I ordered but is was good. I expected the place to be a little more fancier. It needs a makeover for sure. Staff was excellent
Jeffrey was outstanding and was attentive without being intrusive. It had been a little while since we’d been to Choplin’s. No apparent reason for that, but we enjoyed our time and dinner so much! Thanks for a wonderful evening of good drinks, great food and excellent service. You’ll be seeing us again soon, promise!
It was busy so service was a little slow but the meal and the service we received was worth the wait! The food was delicious and totally worth the price!
We went on Valentine’s Day for the first time and it was a full house. Even with it bring packed the service was impeccable and very fast. We had Jeff as our waiter and he provided incredible service that makes us want to come back just for him. The food was AMAZING. Literally some of the best food I’ve ever had. Would highly recommend trying the fried shrimp appetizer. I thought I have had good shrimp until I had this. Best shrimp ever. Complements to the chef on everything, steak was perfect, as well as the scallops over turmeric rice. Also had a great wine selection. Would highly recommend and it is worth every penny. Definitely a new regular spot for my girlfriend and I.
Best food we’ve had in Charlotte since moving from Boston last year.
My wife and I love this place
Food always Fresh
Best kept secret on in the area
I am glad this wasn't my first experience at Chopin's as I would never be going back if it was. The server was terrible, took 30 minutes to get our drinks, more than half our appetizer was gone before drinks came. It was Valentine's Day so I was being extra patient :) server said there were no specials and never shared we could have added lobster tails to any order which we heard other servers share with their tables. My NY Strip had to be sent back as it was ordered medium well and came out rare. Never received our bread until after our dinner was out and we had to ask for it. We were very disappointed.
We went early on Valentine's Day and were happy we did since it was before the biggest crush of diners. Our waitress was spread pretty thinly but she was extremely conscientious and friendly, making wonderful recommendations. We loved the brussel sprouts - they were perfect! Our beef dishes (mine beef tenderloin and my husband went with Filet Mignon) were perfectly done. We will definitely be back.
Our server, Bailey, was excellent. French onion soup was especially tasty. Meals were very good. Live music was a nice touch.
Great food and service. Drinks were over priced
Best place so far for a great seafood dinner. Great taste and very fulling portions, great value for you money. You won't be disappointed.
Awesome experience. We were staying at a local hotel and found this gem on yelp. The service was awesome, but the food was exceptional. We will return when passing through in the future, in fact we will stay specifically in this area just to stop in and have dinner.
Nicest people but the worst food.😝 Stick to your steaks, they were quality meats.
