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

Came here for a business lunch and was pretty disappointed with the food. Service was friendly though a bit on the slow side... But the food fell flat. Calgary has much better offerings, especially at this price point.

We were at their beautiful new location on Saturday evening after a difficult day. Service was just excellent. We were given time to decide on our selections and they definitely did not disappoint. As we did not have a big appetite we ordered several smaller selections including the French Onion Soup w/Oxtail which was a great choice and the Steak... More

The sandwich they are selling as mortadella is more like Pastrami or Corned Beef. Very disappointing. It came nicely packaged foe take away so I didn't notice until it was too late. A restaurant of this calibre should know Mortadella from Pastrami!

Went to the Chicago Chophouse with a big group for a friends bachelorette party. Food was to die for...everything from the steak to the mac n cheese side plate. The meat presentation was great and our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Would recommend for a special occasion, as it is on the pricier side.

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.
