Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here, loved the atmosphere and the live pianist. My lobster bisque was the best i ever tasted and my wetaged ribeye cooked medium was absolutely amazing! Would definitely come here again. Worth every penny!

“Best steak I ever had”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I'll say it up front, I didn't end up paying for my own food when we visited this place. But even if I had, in some way it's worth it. The steak (wagyu) was simply fabulous, the best I ever had. The sides were also great and the wine we chose was excellent. It is very expensive however but it was a great experience. I guess we seemed a bit out of place, with none of us having ever been to such a place. But our waiter was great, explained everything and was definitely not pushy. We had a great time and I'm left with fond memories of this place. I think the bill was 700 dollars for 4 people (no appetizers, no dessert, 1 bottle of wine and some beers).

“Expensive but well done.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

It is annoying to have items suggested and the price not be told but I could have asked too so shame on me. The Chop House was chosen since it was a personal recommendation to me. Two options for seating: swanky, traditional upstairs or more casual, piano music downstairs. We opted for trad.

Two apps were recommended and we went for the scallops ($49). The price hurts because it was an app. Truth be told, this would have been a great dinner option. Six plump scallops, well cooked and seasoned. They were fantastic.

I ordered the dry aged bone filet - fantastic. My husband got the long bone dry aged rib eye. I wondered if we could have saved some $ by requesting a short bone... He really enjoyed it too. Both steaks were expensive but that's what we chose. We also got a single side of sauteed spinach and mushrooms. The single size was perfect for us to share. The veggies were perfect.

With the little room left we had the berries and macadamia gelato for dessert. The berries were plentiful. The gelato was hidden under a glob of whip cream. It is definitely a berry dessert, not gelato. (Setting your expectations.) I really enjoyed it as a finish to the night.

“Great steaks but you still patty for it”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Okay this place has good steaks but warning it's expensive and I'm not sure you can not get a quality steak with the same flavor and quality elsewhere. I got the bone in tomahawk ribeye and yeah it was good but I've also had just as tasty a ribeye at Fleming's. Don't get me wrong it was good but for 80.00 I'm not quite sure it was worth it.

W also got the scallop appetizer, it was delicious but we never asked how much. Come to find out it was a 50.00 appetizer, ouch. Again good but not worth 50.00! My wife got the bone in filet, it was cooked to perfection and very tasty, same for my ribeye. Great steaks here but again if you are on a budget you can find much more reasonably priced steaks elsewhere.
