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.

Excellent food and service. Lovely atmosphere and staff friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend the chop house and will definitely return again! Very easy to book using open table and will use again. Concerned about access to constitution street but no problems whatsoever.

Staff were amazing, very accommodating and friendly. Service was fast but not rushed, they also gave my girlfriend and I a glass of Prosecco as we stated on our booking that we were celebrating an anniversary, this was a very nice touch. My only slight criticism would be the cooking of the steaks. The sauces and sides were amazing (I had the blue cheese sauce and garlic wild mushrooms), I also ordered a rare sirloin but received it medium rare. I also felt it was a little under seasoned but I understand not everyone liked their steaks seasoned heavily. The supplied salt and pepper took care of this.
Would defiantly recommend to anyone and would come back again the next time I visit Edinburgh.

Been before 1yr ago with friends to the market street branch. Fillet steak was smaller by 2oz and up in price. The straw fries dont work, just too thin and the onion rings were very oily needed patted down or hit air cooled. The sauce came in a really really small cooking pan, which meant only applying a little to each bite.. premium price for premium products i am fine with but this isnt right. Steak was cooked well. Starters were good, chilli squid and mini egg in brisket (its sauce was great) the table was right beside the door, I kept my fleece on the whole time. My job is a Food & Beverage manager in a 5 star establishment for 20yrs.

All round excellent experience. Food was beautiful - chateaubriand cooked perfectly and sides were lovely. Very good selection of wine. Service was very good and staff were knowledgeable. We were a visitor to Edinburgh and I would highly recommend to people visiting the city. My only criticism would be that the tables are close together and too small to comfortably hold a sharing plate, 2 sides and a bottle of wine. I find that an issue in a lot of restaurants and you end up playing Tetris to try and fit everything on which is a bit annoying.

The meal what we received was outstanding, the minute we walked in the member of staff was very welcoming. The food was at a really high standard which I would probably go and say it’s the best meal which I have ate in a restaurant. I also was expecting to pay more , as some reviews were saying it was a little pricey. I couldn’t recommend enough.. everything about the place was excellent

Had the chatebriand was such a disappointment tastless steak no where near prime grade.
Was extremely overpriced 96 for the steak and iv had better from my local supermarket.

Having been to Chophouse on numerous occasions, our recent visit fell short in so many ways: the fillet steak has shrunk to 250g instead of 300g but still charged at the original price. We kept having to ask for water refills and we waited over 30 minutes for our cheese board. Very disappointing, especially when we chose to support our local businesses.

I took my boyfriend here on Wednesday night for his birthday. We were welcomed by JD who showed us to the table and gave us complimentary glasses of champagne. The food was excellent and all the staff were really lovely! We both had a steak which were done to perfection. They even brought a candle in his sticky toffee pudding. On our way out we chatted to JD who made sure we were satisfied with our experience! Overall I would definitely recommend chop house leith to anyone who is considering going. It was a wonderful place to dine! Thank you

We've set ourselves a target this year to visit new restaurants rather than keep going to the same ones. Our first outing definitely demonstrated the value of trying something new. The food at Chop House was exceptional. As they specialise in meat, we both had steaks, one fillet and one sirloin. they were tender, flavoursome and cooked to perfection. Sticky toffee pudding and the cheese selection for afters were both among the best we have tasted. Service was efficient and welcoming but not pushy. The house red was great, too. I'm sure we'll be back.

The steak was lovely, as were the sides and the wine but the sauces to go with the steak were really disappointing and the background music was really awful. Also, the seats were heated but a little too much so I had to sit away and couldn't lean back on them because it was too hot to sit back. I'm afraid we wouldn't go back or recommend it to others.

Have observed a marked deterioration in quality of the steak.
This time I ordered a Ribeye and it had white artery lines through it, a lot of hard grisel, was very fatty and definitely not worth the money.
I've experienced similar in the past. The quality of the produce has dropped considerably, so much so that I doubt I'll return.

Great experience at Chop House Leith. Food was amazing. I definitely recommend this place to anyone reading this. Food ordered: chicken wings, burrata, rib eye steak cooked medium rare, side of mac and cheese, side of gravy mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious. Especially the steak and the mac and cheese. Until next time

We went for lunch on Friday 3rd January. We were the first people there and by the time we left there were 3 tables in total. It was not busy, so you would expect a steakhouse, that was quiet, to not overcook a steak but they did. The speed of service from ordering to table was also poor. We had one starter and two mains and we were seated for 1hr 40 mins with the majority of the first hour we were the only ones in the restaurant.

Overall, we’ve had a bad experience before with this restaurant and poor quality of the food but persisted only down to the fact we had a voucher! Safe to say, there are far better steak restaurants out there to go to rather than this one and recommend anyone who is considering this restaurant, to reconsider.

we left after 15 minutes of been there. the staff were incredibly rude, not accommodating to children as we had a 5 year old with us. we were really looking forward to dining here but it really wasn't a pleasant experience.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and I also told the manager what we thought of the place and she didn't seem to care one bit.

Highly recommend CHL as the place to go for a solid martini, steak and wine experience. We started out with Lind and Lime dry martinis, perfectly mixed. We went with sirloin steaks - one medium rare, one rare - both were on the mark! We kept it simple with potatoes - mash and gravy and garlic potatoes and were not disappointed. As a great steak deserves a great wine pairing, CHL delivers. We took a glass of the Le Bosq Rouge and Saints Marie Des Crozes - L’outsider. Both perfect for our respective palates and preferences.
Our server Oliver was helpful and attentive, ensuring we had a memorable dining experience.

Visiting family in Edinburgh and wanted a lovely steak dinner. The Chop House provided that evening for us. Our Rib eyes were prepared beautifully to order. Sides were fun to share and delicious. Dessert was yummy and a wonderful finish to our meal Sticky pudding the best.

What a mistake this was! The decibel level is so off the charts making any eating experience unpleasant. The Turkish bath Style heated tiled banquet seating is so not good design. The food was average at best and the comments that ‘It’s Christmas’ in no way justify quality. Making sure that the waitress explains Clearly what exactly accompanies the dishes Is paramount and it will save ‘garlic’ potatoes being delivered in abundance and being returned to the kitchen. All in all, a poor show. Looking at earlier reviews, I have to wonder if a drop in standards is due to a particular reason????
