Feb. 15, 2014 Reservations were made for 6:30 and for a specific table where we enjoy having our dinner. The manager took the reservation and asked if we could come a little early because they were going to be busy that night. We arrived at a minute after 6:00 at the hostess desk and she told the young girl to... More

Saturday 2/1/14 we ate at your resturant. We were a group of five people. We had the tamalk steak for two. I have never eated a steak that had tons of fat and was very tough. It was also tough to cut with a steak knife. If you are going to sell steaks for $85 a piece you better get... More

We have been to the Chop House in Scottsdale, AZ so we knew kind of what to expect. We were not disappointed! Wonderful cocktails and wine, great dinner and excellent service. We will return.

Second time dinning at the Chop House and again the experience was outstanding. The food was great, the service was fantastic, and the decor of the restaurant is a throwback to the time when restaurant were built for comfort. The lighting and woodwork in the restaurant are something that the new hi-tech super chrome and noisy restaurants have long forgotten.... More

I just expected a nice steakhouse and got exactly that. I ordered an 8-oz filet that came perfectly cooked as ordered (medium rare) with a caesar salad. My wife ordered the chicken (also very enjoyable) and we shared a "small" dish of asparagus (way plenty for two.) Our server was knowledgeable and efficient. You won't be disappointed!

Had an amazing dinner here this past weekend and will certainly be back in the future. Were debating between this place and Ruth Chris after a long day of golf and elected to try something new. Service was great the entire night, everything arrived promptly and we really had no complaints. I ended up ordering the Scottish Salmon and my... More

Daughter and I went to the Chop House on a Monday evening. The place was not crowded and we were immediately seated in a booth. We had the 8 oz filet and the 16 oz rib-eye. Both were medium rare and cooked perfectly. Each of our steaks were superb, which is what you want when visiting a fine steak house.... More

The house wines are very nice. The bar menu has some very tasty small plates. Ahi tuna is always one of my favorites. The service is good, the bar hasn't been busy the last few times I've been in... summer time!

After a very trying and long day, we were looking forward to a relaxed, pleasant dinner. The special included some reasonable choices including salad and dessert. My dining companion selected salmon and I ordered a small filet, medium rare. Our entrees arrived in due course however when I cut into my "prime" filet, not only was it tough but beyond... More
