    Absolutely amazing! My wife and I went for our 25th anniversary. The bartender Trish was wonderful and very solicitous of me and my wife. We had arrived early so stopped at the bar for a drink. When our table was ready the hostess came for us. We both ordered filet mignon which was the best I have ever had. Our waiter Kiko was also amazing and very attentive to us. We finished the night with a desert wine and a creme brûlée. I have had that in a number of restaurants both in the US and other countries. It was the best I have ever had! I would recommend this very highly, especially if you are coming to Boston as a tourist.

    This is the second time we have dined at Boston Chops. The service wasn’t great the Furst time and unfortunately it has not improved. I took my son and his friends to dinner as we were dropping off for college. Waiter constantly missing in action. It took forever to have him take our order. I ordered a glass of Chardonnay and it didn’t arrive. I had to flag some other person yo find him. Ordered my steak well done- it was medium. Ordered side of mash potatoes and it didn’t arrive. When the host or manager sat someone down next to us, I literally had to tap him in the back and asked him to send our waiter over. The host or manager seemed perturbed with me and never asked if there was something wrong. When water came over, and told him about missing food.he is like oh right. Worst worst service ever. I don’t generally write bad reviews but this is now twice. Honestly there are better places in Boston with better steak and better service. I should have stayed with my original reservation at Abe and Louie’s.

The four of us that was celebrating a birthday loved our meals, appetizers and cocktails. Ambiance was terrific noise level was low and definitely will be back.

    The food was good - solid - but not spectacular. Our waiter was great - when the kitchen made a mistake with our desserts he immediately fixed the situation. However, the service was very slow.

    Would not recommend, as there are definitely better steakhouses for comparable prices in Boston. Ordered the 14 oz rib eye which was seventy dollars and it was literally just a slab of meat on a plate. No accompaniments and even the sauce was extra four dollars. Restaurant week menu was okay and perhaps the only thing worth it, but Caesar salad was drenched in dressing.

    Food was amazing and the place was very inviting. I was being a baby about the AC, but they did accommodate me and turned it down, was very appreciative . Mostly , our server, which I believe was Lauren (?) my apologies for not retaining her name. She was excellent, charming and very attentive without being overbearing . She made our dinning experience even that much better. Thank you !!!

    This “high end” restaurant now throws at you a 13% mandatory appriciation fee for the kitchen staff and taxed Never going back again If that type of restaurant can’t take care of their staff raise the prices add $3 to the steaks or whatever it takes to take care of inflation. I find it tasteless they add they add that fee on that type of restaurant Hopefully MA won’t turn into CA

    Boston Chops - South EndResponded on August 7, 2023

    Sergio, We are sorry to hear that your dining experience was not up to par. The Kitchen Appreciation Fee is optional, and can be removed from the bill no problem if brought to the server's or manager's attention, and is 3% of the food on the bill. This is put in place in many restaurants across the US in an attempt to thank our Back of House staff for the hard work that they do, day in and day out for our customers, as they cannot be tipped out by customers or FOH staff.

    This was my first time trying Boston Chops in the South End. We had a nice lunch consisting of Filet and Sea Bass. We also enjoyed French Onion Soup and a very tasty crabcake appetizer. Only comment was the food could have been a little hotter when served. Maddie was an extremely knowledgeable and attentive server who was patient with our requests and questions when Mary (who was training) was unsure. Noel also made everyone feel very welcome and was most helpful with special requests. Thank you all! We look forward to returning again in the future.

    We were charged for multiple bottles of wine when we only ordered wine by the glass. It took several conversations with the wait staff to have the charges corrected. We also asked for Ice water and we’re instead charged for still mineral Water at $22 per bottle. They also attempted to charge us for entrees we did not order nor receive. Resturant had a very negative vibe and virtually no guests.

    Food was very good, as usual, though the service on a night with few patrons in the restaurant was poor. Waitress was inattentive -- to say the least. Spoke to the manager after our dinner and an overall substandard experience and he was somewhat dismissive of my comments. Will not be returning anytime soon.
