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.

Kudos to kitchen and wait staff for handling my party of 10 business lunch in such an efficient manner. The chicken piccata and citrus salmon were particularly delicious but everyone loved their meal.

Its a very unique building with an intimate setting as it's a revitalized old bank.
Its not too noisy for lunch meeting or intimate dinner. Service is always outstanding!!!
This is the first time I went there for lunch and found it even better. I got a 3 course lunch for $19.99
Excellent!!!

Our meal and experience were good but not great. We were ready for a traditional menu after dining at several trendy restaurants in the area. Our food was properly prepared but just not memorable. Our service was a bit quirky. That’s okay, but it didn’t measure up to some exceptional service we enjoyed in some other restaurants.

I had a reservation and they put us down by the kitchen. There were plenty of tables since the restaurant was not busy. Everything was okay, except for noice, but for price paid expected a better experience.
