“Outstandng!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

First time at the Rochester Chop House tonight and it was a wonderful treat. Our wait person, Jen, was super! Friendly,efficient and funny. the meal was top notch. I enjoyed the Delmonico which had a delicious charring on the outside but moist and tender on the inside. Asparagus,mashed potatoes and a yummy Caeser salad were perfect accompaniments. My fiancé enjoyed the filet and said it was delicious. Great ambience, nice wines….You can't go wrong here. I will definitely recommend this place and plan to return soon to try the lamb chops.

“Fine dining in downtown Rochester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner at Rochester Chop House. Even though it was an extremely busy day, our party of 8 was treated with courtesy and respect. Our waiter was very competent and attentive. And the food was delicious. Most of us had the traditional turkey dinner, but two had the potato encrusted whitefish, which both said was wonderful. Rochester Chop House offers a full plated meal of turkey for $6 with any entree on Thanksgiving so guests will be able to take home leftovers. Everything about the meal was great and the ambience was comfortable. It's a great place to go for Thanksgiving, or any day. Their regular service and food is equally good. You always feel well cared for here.

“Excellent Food, OK Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

I had a very enjoyable meal here. A cup of Charley's (fish) Chowder was a tasty starter, as was the calamari, which was some of the tenderest I have tasted. The combination of a seven-ounce tenderloin with crab cakes was a winner, and was priced the same as the tenderloin by itself (the $2.00 side order of mushrooms was a worthwhile complement). The steak was tender, flavorful, and perfectly cooked, and the crab cakes actually contained large pieces of identifiable crab -- not something that one often finds in that dish elsewhere.

We didn't have reservations, and we waited quite a long time for a table (this is a popular place on a Friday night). Once seated, the service was competent but pretty slow. Our order for appetizers was taken and delivered, but a considerable amount of time then elapsed before we were able to order our entrees. Since we were there for a leisurely evening, this wasn't a problem, but "fast food" this ain't. This restaurant is quite noisy in some parts; we were lucky to end up with a table upstairs, where conversation was much easier to conduct. Prices are pretty high, but given the quality, the value is still pretty good.

“Great gathering place for friends for an excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Their Happy Hour Specials are wonderful and what we prefer to get when we go for drinks and dinner. We especially love the fresh oysters, the fish tacos and the mussels dijonnaise. The calamari is also great - not too greasy and very tender. We prefer the energy and staff in the front which could be referred to as the bar section.
