I had the best steak ever at this restaurant. It was a 12 oz Filet, but I couldn't eat it all ! Amazingly good meat. The pork chip was enormous, and the deserts were excellent.

My wife and I had lunch before the afternoon performance of Hamilton last week. She had the scallop special and I had the grillroom burger. Both were excellent! The service was excellent and our server, Jesse, was both kind and accommodating even while training a new staff member. Nice location across the street from the show. Well worth it!

The menu is interesting and the food was good if expensive. The restaurant was quite noisy when we went before theater. For these prices, one would expect good service, but it's terrible. They ignored us for a half an hour and then indicated that no one was assigned to wait on us. Everything was slow after that.

We enjoyed filet, ribeye, and a surf and turf special. The food was all delicious and prepared as ordered, but the lobster tail was very small for the price charged for the surf and turf special ($60). Our server was attentive and friendly. All in all, it was a good experience but the prices are rather high.

I normally try to find something positive for the review of a restaurant so on this occasion the food wasn't terrible and the waiter was pleasant. However that is where it ends. The staff were stretched far beyond the numbers they had and over the whole night we were waiting long periods for almost everything. The low point during our... More

While we value your business, we just wanted to say that we apologize you were so unhappy. Each time our manager went to your table that evening, you told her over and over again that you were having a fabulous time. As we indicated to you when you received your bill, had you mentioned that prior during her many trips... More

Not the best steak I've ever had but a beautiful restaurant with great service. Walking distance from W Hotel City Center.

We popped into the Chophouse since we were seeing "Hamilton" across the street. Even though we did not have reservations, we had no problem getting seeing at 5:30 p.m. (the show as at 7:30). The host and waiter were very friendly. Prices were about what you'd expect for a restaurant right in the theater district. For 3 people, we paid... More

We visited for appetizers and drinks before going to see Hamilton, food and service were good as well as the atmosphere. Some friends were not going to the show and stayed to wait for us and watch the game, they received good drink service and the happy hour was a good value.

We met our friends right across the street from the theater where Hamilton was playing. We had tix and this was a great place to meet before the show started. The early dinner was good although the service was on the slow side. I bet it was a good 5-10 minutes before our waiter visited the table. It was okay... More

First I should say that I got the New York Strip, and it was perfect. The flavor was exactly what I was looking for, just seasoned right, and it was cooked to the medium rare I asked for. However my side of mashed potatoes was only good. Nothing wrong with it, but at a place like this I expect the... More
