Steakhouse
Best of British beef, dry-aged in house and cooked over a charcoal grill. Chop House is an innovative blend of classic British steakhouse and cocktail bar brought to you by the team behind Monteiths & the White Horse Oyster Bar. Provenance is at the centre of the Chop House offer and we use only the finest beef sourced from artisan suppliers across Scotland.
The meat is dry aged onsite for up to 90 days to add flavour, increase tenderness then cooked on a charcoal grill, specially designed to give a subtle smoky flavour. Our fantastic food offering is matched by an extensive wine list from around the world and exceptional cocktail list. We have another Chop House in Bruntsfield & East Market St.

Very welcoming staff. Food was delicious. Despite the current conditions with a reduced menu, the staff went out of their way to accommodate everyone. A nice touch to remember my booking was for an 18th birthday. Can’t wait to return in better circumstances

We had excellent rump steaks which had been cooked to our tastes - medium rare and medium to well done. Just delicious. We sat near the bar where the cocktails were being made with great expertise and they looked fantastic! Pity the Scottish Government is playing havoc with restaurants as it would be awful to loose a restaurant like this in the Leith area.

Usually really enjoy Chop House but was disappointed with the Sunday lunch. The meat although tasted lovely was very small (and very different sizes between me & my partner) but it was the Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and veg that was really disappointing, it was all very dry as if it had been cooked and sat out for hours beforehand. For £29pp, I though it was worth half that price. Service was great and all stuff very friendly.

Nice steak but for the cost not worth it. For the price you pay you would expect the sides as part of course but you have to pay additional for all the sides, so the price you see is literally only for the steak itself.

We ordered sirloin and rump steak to be cooked medium. They came totally overcooked and it was chewed, we mentioned to the waiter and the response was just a "sorry". We won't be coming back after this, quality price relation isn't just worthy.

We had a lovely lunch. Would recommend it to friends. Due to covid as with everywhere, things are slightly out of kilt, obviously this is no fault of theirs. Great starters and a superb Bloody Mary! I’d go back!

After all the hype about the food & how amazing it is, I was disappointed. The chateaubriand was medium-rare right in the centre, but the rest quickly became well done. The peppercorn sauce was oily as opposed to creamy & the chips might as well have been from the local Tesco - they were dry & flavourless.

I'm not even to to mention the thick batter of the tempura prawn starter or the very average ice-cream served with the dry sticky toffee pudding. All-in-all the food simply doesn't justify the prices & therefore the value is poor.

I ordered the Sirloin and it came with a bone marrow gravy that was excellent. It was a little higher in price that I would usually pay, but it was worth every single penny. My wife ordered the maple roasted chicken and as far as chicken goes, that too was excellent. The staff were great, and it was safe to visit.

the decor was cool, service was good, most of the food was fine but the 2 people in our party who had steak were not impressed. For a place that makes its name on its steaks and meat, serving up 2 gristly rump steaks was not great

We had this restaurant on the list to try for ages. Finally gave it a go for our wedding anniversary. So happy we did. The food was delicious and so flavoursome. The service was fantastic, perfect pace of service, never felt rushed or left unattended.
Not cheap, but will definitely go again

My Ribeye medium rare was a bit too fatty for me, I will try sirloin next time I’m there. Ordered a bearnaise sauce but got a peppercorn one instead. Changed without a fuss.
Partner had medium ribeye and loved it.
A bottle of house red was nice enough but seemed pricey at £24. We only drank 1/2 of it and asked for the top to go, only to be told it was in the bin, what!? No effort whatsoever to resolve that minor issue (we left the wine instead). Seemed a simple ask, and I’d have thought that was not the first time they’ve been asked that same thing. They could completely remove that from ever being as issue by keeping a few of the screw tops surely?
Very well organised re Covid rules and I applaud them for the way they are able to function as a restaurant in these difficult times.
