Opened in 2003, the Chops in Folsom is a steakhouse that serves up delicious, Midwestern, corn-fed beef that has been dry aged. There are also plenty of seafood options that round out the classic steakhouse menu. The kitchen uses only fresh, local ingredients and makes everything from scratch. A full bar at Chops in Folsom provides a fun, vibrant atmosphere for diners.
Dinner at Chops in Folsom includes soups, salads, burgers and of course plenty of steakhouse specials. There are chop salad, an ahi poke, blackened salmon and the beet and arugula for something lighter. The main attraction, though, is steaks, like the grilled New York strip, filet mignon or porter for two.
My daughte's warm spinach salad arrived half baked and baby spinach was not used. They offer no wild fish on their menu. My husband and I ordered the same exact steak, but they looked entirely different in appearance.
We really wanted to like chops, because of the location next to the
Beef stroganoff was watery with a big dollop of sour cream on top. Wasn't offered another drink or water refills. Not up to Chops reputation.
For the prices the food should be good. Had to ask for bread, mashed potatoes were dry, steak was not cooked well. Service was not what you would expect from a nice steakhouse. they were just not as sharp and professional like you would expect. We went multiple times and every time the seemed to disappoint. I will go to Ruth Chris for a nice steak, they never disappoint.
The mushroom stuffed appetizer was served cold. Not even close to warm. I ordered steak and Losbter for my dinner. The potatoes were cold, steak was warm my lobster was warm aswell. I chose not to order desert cause our bill was already over 150.00. Service was great and wine selection was good. My husband dinner was on the warm/cold side too. He ordered oysters for appetizer. They tasted ok but were very small. Almost not worth the effort. We didn't complain to the server about our cold food. My husband and both worked in costumer service for many years. We would rather just not go back than complain about both of our meals.
Chops Folsom has a nice location and atmosphere. The service was good. Although the prices are a bit high, we looked forward to great steak dinner. Despite steak being the restaurant specialty, the NY steak was disappointingly fatty and tough. They did provide a good complimentary dessert to the birthday celebrant in our group.
Until more attention is paid to the food preparation and overall quality, this restaurant will not get a second look.
We have been wanting to try Chops for some time and finally got around to it, but I wish we wouldn't have. I have not been so disappointed in a dining experience in quite some time. From the start of being seating with only menu and place setting to share between the two of us, to a warm spinach salad that was cold and oily to the absentee service, there is no reason to go back.
The food was well prepared and tasted wonderful. Lovely evening.
The server was very in experienced and SLOW. There were only two tables no excuse for slow service. Food was mediocre at best and priced to high. I will not go back.
We arrived early and were seated because they were not busy. The cocktail waitress arrived immediately beflore we could look at the menu. Suggestion: The hostess could point out the wine list and the fact that there are specialty cocktails listed in the menu. Ordered cocktails. We ordered an appetizer, told the waitress what we wanted to order for our dinner but didn't want it all coming at once. Our salads came first instead of the appetizer. My warm spinach salad was not warm and I had to ask for more dressing. The dressing was a heavy olive oil with some herbs sitting on the bottom. The salad was tasteless! I ate the bacon and eggs but couldn't eat it. After a long wait, our dinner arrived -- no appetizer!
This restaurant has a notable reputation: expensive. But is it worth it? No, not really. We made a reservation, had to wait & sat outside. Although very nice & courteous, our server seemed fresh out of training, as did our busboy (who hardly ever showed up.) We brought our own wine; waitress didn't really know how to handle that. Two out of 4 of us ordered salads, & when they arrived, we had to ask for forks. Then we had to ask for napkins. We never got bread, but that was OK for this group. We had an appetizer that showed up after salads, then the entrees came within 3 minutes of getting the appetizer. Then had to ask for steak knives. Really?? Food was good, not great. For 4, bringing our own wine, the tab was over $300.
After a great first experience with Chops Folsom, I was excited to go back, but my second experience was terrible. First, it took 20 minutes for our waitress to show up and take our drink orders. Next, and quite pathetically, the kitchen served our courses completely out of order. We ordered an appetizer (Calamari), salads, and steak entrees. Strangely and unprofessionally, we were served our entrees first. I appreciate that the manager took the salads and calamari off of the bill (as we were not even served them). I am very disappointed with how the situation was handled. As a fine gourmet restaurant I expected more. Paying over $150 for a terrible experience left a very sour taste in my mouth.
Our dinner was so bad that the lobster couldn't be cut with a steak knife, the mashed potatoes were not even salted, the BBQ pork sliders were cold with soggy onion strings on a smashed Hawaiian roll. Service was poor with my beverage sitting empty for over 25 minutes and the waitress had a major attitude when we complained about the quality of the food and we had to take our bill up to the bar to pay. I have had better food and service from Denny's. I will never eat at Chops again!
The wait for the entree was over an hour with several other tables being served much quicker. The pork chop was way undercooked!
We had the steak and lobster and the spinach stuffed mushrooms. Everything was cooked to perfection and very tasty.
Downhill slide not as good as it used to be the chicken was cooked before they reheated it to serve me The restaurant was empty when we got there and we still waited to sit down the waiter and bartender did not know how to make a drink
We dined with a party of 4 on Sunday August, 24. We were seated in a comfortable booth and greeted promptly by our server, (aka: manager: Brian). We were advised of the option of ordering off of the lunch menu or the brunch menu. The four of us ordered different entrees, 2 lunch and 2 brunch. Each entrée was presented beautifully and tasted very good. Support staff was very attentive. We were pleased to see a significant improvement overall as compared to our last dining experience at this establishment. Good job! Thank you!
Food was over cooked and dry. NOT a children friendly restaurant either.
Excellent food with excellent service combined to make this a great anniversary experience.
I have always been a huge fan of Chops, but the last few visits have been very disappointing. On the last visit, steak was ordered med rare and received medium to well done. They offered to replace, but who wants to sit with your sides and wait for another steak. Broccoli was hard and undercooked.
They have changed the menu and only offer three types of steak which does not include the steakhouse classic ribeye. The server was friendly and helpful, just a little slow refilling waters, completing checking etc. we will not be returning to this location.
