They opened at a new location, 237 8th Ave. SE. Online reviews of old place weren't good but I try to be optimistic about a new place. The Chophouse tries to be upscale, especially with their prices, but that's all that's up at this place. Better as expensive restaurants in the vicinity so Chophouse is very, very far off the...

The restaurant had relocated & this was their 1st night at new location. We went for my wife's birthday with the idea of spending $3-400 for a quality meal. No olives for martins, my 1st drink was not the vodka I ordered, fire alarm while waiting for our meal, finally got served our meal after a 2 hour wait. $85... More

One of the dangers of being a restaurant in downtown Calgary is that you may experience higher than normal traffic during the lunch hour (and half hour or so on either side of it). Most restaurants embrance this challenge by providing consistent service to their guests. Unfortunately Chicago Chophouse has chosen not to rise to the challenge. We were seated... More

Indifferent service, tough steak and not one other diner in sight. I ordered a glass of house wine and accepted the waiter's suggestion. Image my surprise when the bill arrived - $60 for two glasses of wine. Will NEVER go back.

We decided to treat ourselves one cold Saturday night by splashing out on a decent steak, boy were we disappointed! The steak tartare was excellent, portion size was great but the main courses totally let the place down. We both had to send our mains back, they weren't just slightly cool they were freezing! It was $20 for a glass... More

We had the pleasure of visiting this amazing restaurant again this past Saturday for the second time. I ordered the 8oz tenderloin, black & blue, and it was cooked to perfectly. The black & blue addition of blue cheese and a smoky chocolate sauce worked so well and really complimented the steak. We shared lobster Mac & cheese and broccoli... More

A group of us went out to celebrate. Not a large group but well beyond the capabilty of the restarant, took 30 minutes to take our order then ignored for an hour, by our waiter and the manager. When the food did arrive 30 minutes later it was stone cold. When we complained they did offer a discount, but there... More

They do steak right and services are good. Location is convenience. The prices are high. Not too much choices for vegetarians.

Well I have to say I was very impressed with this restaurant. My friend and I went for lunch at this restaurant for the fist time. My friend has a fish allergy and gets violently ill if she comes into contact with anything fishy. The waiter was told this and he checked with the kitchen and we got the all... More
