Enjoyed a fantastic dinner last night. I know that the restaurant has gone through a bit of a shift and now is under new management and has a new chef who has his CCC (Certified Chef de Cuisine) designation!! He knows what a chophouse should be and has converted the menu to reflect it!! Each of our dishes were presented... More

Four of us went for a meal. We arrived and waited 20 minutes before a server came by. It was as if we had interrupted her social life. We ordered and told her we had theatre tickets for 7:30 pm. It was only 6:00 pm then. A salad arrived within about 15 minutes. This "Caesar" salad consisted of 6 pieces... More

When you pay $500 for dinner, you should never have to pour your own wine, have the food order come wrong. Almost 2 hours after we arrived the food finally arrived and it was cold - don't waste your money...

I went with an associate from Japan who had been previously. He was after a big steak. We had the steaks. But $47 for a 12 oz off the bone rib steak it was ... Ok. And for that price I would expect fantastic. But there was no Wow or Yum. The steaks come on the plate. Any veggies or... More

Recently visiting my brother in Calgary and he took me here on a Monday evening around 5:30. We did not have reservations and were told that they were not accepting any more walk in traffic that evening. Walked outside and booked a reservation for 7:30 on a smartphone through open table. Staff looked somewhat surprised when we returned. Restaurant was... More

I was alone and looking for a good meal when I found this restaurant in downtown Calgary. The large dining area was almost empty so the bar looked inviting even though there was no one there either. A private dining area in the rear was busy hosting a large group. The staff were very friendly and the food was very... More

My wife and I visited Chicago Chophouse for our one-year wedding anniversary dinner. The food, service, and wine pairings were absolutely fantastic! Our servers had been working with the restaurant for one and thirteen years, respectively. No wonder they were very knowledgeable about the meat cuts, wines, and the establishment itself. The striploin and tenderloin we ordered were superb! The... More

Recently the reasterant moved but the Web site haven't changed and so we were late for our reservations. It wasn't a problem because the place was totally empty. I was surprised since it's a great place for a steak. I guess the new location is the issue

We ordered 2 items off of the Charcuterie menu for 4 people. A smoked Trout Butter and a cured pork loin came together with 5 crostini, which didn't come close to being enough. We asked for more Crostini - 10 minutes later we got another 5. Again asked for more and again about 10 minutes later we got another 5.... More
