Everyone from the busboys to the manager were welcoming and attentive. The wait time on food was spot on. The cocktails great. My husband enjoyed the microbrews. We will definitely go again on our next trip.

3 out of the 4 steaks cooked incorrectly! Waiter was good but was sat too many tables at one time! A lot of money for average steaks cooked wrong!

Compared to past visits, this was the worst. Three of four orders were incomplete.
The chocolate layer cake was delicious according to my party.

Went there on anniversary . Very disappointed. My steak was so tough I could not even cut with a knife . Baked potato was so cold the butter would not melt. Server disappeared for about 30 minutes after I ordered a glass of wine to have with my tough steak.

A great go-to place for lunch, happy hour or dinner. I love the chicken piccata and the fish & chips were hot and fresh.

We like stoping in for a pre-theater dinner. It is cosy, you can ask for a quiet corner. The service is reasonably fast and, although it depends on the chef's on duty, you may want to ask them not to use a heavy hand with the salt, especially in the soup!

I tried several of the beers and they were all fair at best. However, the food was decent, a very good filet.

The service was horrible. Our server took orders but never came back with things like straws. My sauteed spinach side dish was delivered to the table during appetizers and the waiter explained it as an error and took it away. But then forgot to give me spinach when my meal was delivered. My prime rib was great but two of our guests ordered their prime rib and ny strip medium rare and got medium well instead. And the waiter insisted that was what they ordered but we all heard them order medium rare. They brought back the ny strip absolutely raw in the middle and had to cook it again. They didn't offer to comp us anything, but one of the men in our group complained so they knocked off two desserts. But I doubt I'll ever go back there. The standards have really dropped dramatically from when they first opened and were actually a good steakhouse. It's really disappointing.

Had not been to Chop House in years, it had been a favorite.

It seems to have slipped in between time with respect to food quality, but aside from that, the table was really bad. Situated next to the staircase in between the "stair chair" and some dishes piled on a ledge, among several group-sized tables which by definition are very loud. I asked if there was any alternative, and was told no. I would have preferred not to have the reservation accepted, if that was the only table option.

Overall, very disappointing experience.

Great steak. Server was very distracted. After processing our order he barely spoke to us again during the whole meal. I appreciate i is a busy restaurant but there was no service beyond the very basics.

It's has been a few years since my last visit to the Chop house. By far this was the best experience. From the maitre d', the bartender, and waitresses all were very friendly and accommodating. A wonderful evening indeed shared. Cheers!

I've gone to the Chophouse periodically since it came to DC. It's...okay, but it's nothing special. The beer really isn't best-in-class by any stretch, and the food is pretty standard steakhouse fare. The space is terrific, but given the prices I'd be hard-pressed to recommend the Chophouse to anyone.

I ordered a special for the evening, and when my meal was placed in front of me, it was no longer the special. The chef changed without notifying me of the difference. I would not have ordered what I received had I known. No discount for the change. I won’t be back.

Our favorite steak house in DC. Service is fantastic, as is the food. Filet mignon is always a winner.

The food was great but our service was rather slow. I understand that it was busy but out food was coming out to us before out drink orders made 15-20 minutes earlier then our food order being out in. We waited 30+ minute for a glass of champagne and 4 oz pour of beer while other around us had they're drink delivered under 15 minutes.
