After dining here two previous times before and having a wonderful experience, we decided to head here for fathers day - of which I'm so disappointed that we did!

We ended up with a very over priced meal and didnt even get the main course we actually went for! No lobster left, no Chateaubriand left, one tiny dish of chips arrived between 4 of us - even though we had ordered two of the sharing plates, the waitress was lovely, but had only been at the restaurant two weeks so when we asked about the various cuts, she had no clue and then took an incredible amount of time to come back with an answer

Dont think I will be rushing back here again

Chop House Leith is reliably awesome and while it was quite busy, particularly for a Monday, the service was great. Our waitress was fantastic....service with a smile and some humour too and clearly knowledgeable about the menu despite being very new to the job. I was delighted that despite booking a table only the day before, my request for one of the booths was accommodated. The absence of smaller sharing portions meant we were forced out of our more standard order, but this was actually great because we tried a new format, that included sharing a half lobster/sirloin combination, as well as venturing on straw fries (amazing) and multiple starters including the delicious scotch egg.

We shall return!

We arrived about 20 minutes early for our table and said to the waiter that we would have a drink whilst we waited for our table to be ready. At 9.15 we asked if we could move to the table. We were quickly told that they were running behind (or there was a double booking) so our table would not be ready for another 50 minutes. We were hungry and did not want to wait. We were offered the “private room” - for the four of us - even though it was a table for six. We thought this was fine, although slightly put out that it was considered we would wait 50 minutes for a table before this was offered.

The food was great. The service was fine but it is a shame that we initially thought we were going to have to wait for 50 minutes! Especially since at that time of night it was unlikely we’d be able to walk into another restaurant. We were offered a free round of drinks but this didn’t materialise (not that we were after it - we didn’t chase it up - but don’t offer it if you won’t honour it). It is a lovely restaurant and the food is great but perhaps a better way to manage lateness which impacts on others needs to be considered.

Myself and 3 friends came to the Chop House in Leith for lunch on Tuesday 22nd May looking forward to it as we'd heard great things.
We arrived just before 12.45, ordered drinks and made our choices. There were only 2 other tables in so it wasn’t at all busy but it took a while for our drinks to come out after which we waited for our 1st course. And waited. And waited. Finally at about 1.20pm, we stopped our waitress and that we had to be back at work for 2pm. She apologised, assuring us that the food was being plated up but we asked could they please bring all of the food out together to save time. Another 10 minutes went by and still nothing despite other tables, who had arrived after us, having their food served ahead of us.
A red-haired gentleman (Floor Manager?) passed by so I explained that we'd been there nearly an hour with no food. He immediately corrected me, saying that it hadn’t only been 40 minutes (!) and said that the food was being plated up. I responded that we had already been told that 10 minutes ago to which he shrugged and repeated that it would be out shortly. Another 5 minutes passed with no food and the manager came back over, leant on the table and started with the words, "Right, so ok, you were waiting for 40 minutes," going on to say that he would remove the cost of the starters from our bill to say sorry. He didn't look in the slightest bit sorry and then rambled on with something about good customer service before disappearing off again.
The food finally arrived. My scallop and pig cheek starter comprised two pygmy scallops and half-cremated bacon and was cold. My friends were similarly unimpressed with theirs. Finally the main arrived. Mine was ok, if barely warm, but my friends’ meals (squid & chicken salads) were cold and tasteless. The Manager stopped by again and drivelled something about recognising us from a previous visit (none of us had visited before) and how he prized good customer service. None of us will be returning.

The Staff was really outstanding, looking forward for our questions and needs.
We had delicious meal there.
However that experience was worth its value, that place is quite expensive, I would go again just for special occasions.

I've been to the chop House several times and every time it is an absolute treat. Most recently however I went for breakfast and, while although a little steeper than some price wise, the food could not have been better and the staff were great. Also, free bloody Marys if you book in advance. What isn't to like?

Very possibly the best steak I’ve ever enjoyed. The chateubriande with selection of sauces and straw fries was cooked to perfection!

Excellent service and wine recommendations for each course. My wife didn’t particularly like one of the wines, and it was exchanged without hesitation.

Highly recommended. The most fantastic anniversary meal we’ve had in our 13 year marriage so far!

I went with a friend for the 2 rump and 2 sides fur £30. Very good deal. Bought starters (squid and scotch egg) and extra sides which were amazing. One of the best steaks I've had, and I've had some really good steaks. Really recommend.
Service was casual but friendly and attentive - did not feel rushed or had extras pushed at me as often happens with deal dining.

They accommodated the wine bottle we brought in for the Corkage Club, which was changed to a different day of the week. - The website is unclear on this.
We have been several times before, the food is always outstanding.
However our last steak meal we had a bit of a disparity to the usual standard we came to expect. Our steaks were overcooked. Now, this may not seem as a big of a deal, but it is. The taste we prefer on a premium steak was affected and we didn't enjoy the meal as much as we anticipated we would.
Granted, the manager did try his best, explained that the chef was adamant this was cooked correctly. He offered to cook us new steaks, but we thought it would be a bit of a waste to do so, but I think for the experience we should have taken him up on his offer.

As I said I am very pleased with the restaurant and I still recommend going here.

We were in the area and looking for a meat restaurant , we saw the good reviews on trip advisor and we decided to visit it.Almost all the choises for 2 or plus persons portions were deleted on the paperboard and we had only 3-4 choises for one person's portions otherwise 3- 4 choises for pieces near to 1 kg! Why to have on laderboard 20 choises and the 16 to be erased?Meal and service were satisfactory but prices were very very high.

Food was amazing and very well cooked , sides were of equal quality and something for everyone.
Choice of wines were excellent and beer was served in a frozen pint tankered ... amazing
The staff were very friendly and we were not left wanting for a thing.
The only thing I would be critical of was the amount of space afforded to customers to move around the restaurant between tables .
It all seemed a bit cramped and meant squeezing between tables to use the facilities and leaving after our meal.
That aside , thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back...

Went for Sunday brunch with a friend. I have recommended Chop House to many friends however this time I found the haggis and black pudding terribly dry. It appears to be grilled now and both myself and my friend unfortunately left both. I fed this back to the staff who said they would pass this onto the chef. It was a bit disappointing given all other times I have been the food quality has been outstanding.

The food was good, but we couldn’t wait to get out. The restaurant had the ambiance of All Bar One on a Saturday night. There were two large very loud parties in. They were up dancing, singing and in and out of the restaurant constantly. The staff were lovely and incredibly apologetic about the noise. However they could have perhaps focused on feeding them and getting them out of the restaurant rather than on serving them alcohol. We had finished our main course before they had even got their starters. It’s unlikely that we’ll be going back.

From the moment we walked in we had personal attention with friendly, knowledgeable staff. We went on our anniversary on a Tuesday when 'corkage club' was available so we took a very expensive bottle of red and paid £5 corkage - a great deal. We had been warned the portions were huge so sidestepped a starter in favour of sharing a dessert with a cheeky wee dessert wine. Would return in a heartbeat for another well-cooked quality steak.

Excellent- beautiful food and drinks - my partner said the cocktails were amazing ! All our company ordered rump steak at various cooking levels - all arrived as ordered at the same time .There is nothing to criticise here - but I would need to say that Carters/Miller or Gaucho pips it on the meat taste for me - but what a lovely meal and time we had - staff great and were happy to keep the birthday cake we brought with us - doing themselves out of a look at the sweet menu ! Tremendous

We booked online and went on a Wednesday when they offer 2 rump steaks with 2 sides for £30; the sides were great, but unfortunately our steaks were not cooked as we had asked. I had asked for mine to be medium, well-done, but nearer to the well-done, yet my steak was still very pink inside. It was also very tough, possibly just a bad cut?! Nonetheless, the atmosphere was lovely and the staff were very friendly and polite. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, would just hope that you find the cut of meat better than we found it!

As always amazing. I order the fillet every time and it never lets me down. I love the Mac and cheese and the dripping chips are incredible. We normally have the squid and prawns to start with which again have been lovely. I do really miss the bacon and cabbage side though. We live out of town and it’s worth the traipse in for how tasty it is. It’s so fab it’s busy all the time or I’d probably go more often if I could get a table.

Obviously they are so busy trying to make their newly opened restaurant successful that they have forgot how to cook steak at Leith �

1. Menu comes out and the price has jumped to £36 for a fillet steak and the menu has changed...Okay okay breathe and don't panic we'll get over it and all will be fine, then out they come.

2. Steak doesnt look the same... give it a go anyway... NOPE ITS COLD, NOWHERE NEAR AS TENDER AND OVER SALTED. £36 I could have done better with a £7 Fillet from Morrisons and a BBQ

3. Chips look like the potato has been stuck through a spiralizer and are also COLD. Unable to pick up with a folk so fingers it is in a classy restaurant, no clue what is going on here �

4. My bernaise sauce had not been mixed properly so all herbs were stuck to the bottom of the tiny wee bowl and it had bubbled on the top even though this was also COLD.

£102 DINNER OF COLD STEAK AND FRIED SPIRALIZED TATTIE.

We love the Chop house, have done for years. It is our New Years Eve tradition to go for the best steak in Edinburgh and we visit for every special occasion (like tonight celebrating my partners 30th birthday after a few very hard weeks), as well as random trips when I'm hungry and can't decided what to eat. I'm truely disappointed and frankly upset this has happened. My partner is a fulltime student and I am on low income while studying part time and yet we adore this place so much that we save and treat ourselves when we can. Once a month at the very least. Is this what we are to expect now that you have branched out to more restaurants, lesser quality and higher costs?

The food was good but as we were having one main course only the wait of 70 mins from ordering to service was tedious and very frustrating. The staff did not seem to be receptive to any questions about the delay in service. Also the price of £3.50 for each accompaniment (fries, greens, mushrooms etc) was excessive considering the high price of the steak itself. We won’t be back.
