First time at the Chop. Decor is good, service was excellent, appetizers were tasty and would recommend the shrimp. Now for the steak-we had a striploin and a ribeye. They were very thin, very overdone and had no flavour. Some others at our table had to send their steaks back. The presentation was very weak and uninspired. We received water... More

There is a new address for this place....has yet to be updated here. Nothing terribly wrong with the food or service per se, both just mediocre at best. Steaks were not done as ordered, no question from the waitress as to satisfaction with doneness. Expect MUCH better quality for the price. Best thing was the appies, especially the mini beef...

After our second visit, we were no more impressed than after our first which was, disappointing to say the least. Probably to highest price for the lowest quality we're ever experienced.

I went to this restaurant with a couple of friends a few weeks ago. We are all self proclaimed foodies. Individually and together, we've eaten at numerous restaurants around the globe and I found the food here to be fantastic and better than most. Everything on the menu looked scrumptious. I had the scallop Rizi Bizi, calamari, tuna tartare (was... More

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
