Steak
Best of British beef, butchered & 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 for up to 90 days to add flavour, increase tenderness then the beef 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. Open Mon - Fri for lunch and dinner, Sat & Sun for weekend breakfast, lunch and Sunday roast! We have another Chop House in Leith & Bruntsfield Edinburgh.

Great food and a lovely venue. Service was very polite but it took around 45 minutes for our food to arrive. We did get an apology but it wasn’t explained why it took so long.

-starters were all AMAZING
- steaks were all AMAZING
- cocktails were delicious but very small for the price
- the special IPA was AMAZING
- side dishes were tasty, but not as high standard as the rest of the meal. Probably a bit over priced
- staff were friendly but unattentive. Forgot requests several times and barely interacted with us.
- Overall experience was a great meal, but we we're not fussed about going again

This was my first visit to the Chophouse and I will be back as soon as I can manage. The beef was truly delicious. Excellent quality and cooked to perfection. We had a range of sides to share which were also delicious and reasonably priced at £3.50-£4.00.
The team looked after us exceptionally well. A really excellent meal and venue. I'd highly recommend the Chophouse.

My husband and I were given a voucher for here so went for lunch on a Friday. It was quiet but a nice atmosphere. Tables were a bit too close together so not much privacy. We had calamari for starters which was lovely and fresh and then hanger steak and a rump steak for main course. Both steaks were really tasty and perfectly cooked. Although I thought it was a little bit on the expensive side I would definitely go back. Staff were nice and one if the younger girls was very friendly and asked how things were.

Great staff and service.

Food was very good but steaks are overpriced by c£5 for me - other items on the menu are better value.

All very well cooked + presented and the drinks list is excellent.

I enjoyed our meal at Chop House. I found the sides a bit expensive as it really increases the price of your meal. Thought the price of chateaubriand was very expensive. The service was good and we had a lovely meal but would only go back for a special occasion.

Fantastic steak restaurant with a good selection of wines and cocktails. Very friendly and attentive staff. Good options for groups as they offer chateaubriand to share. Also early bird specials of oysters for £1. My first visit here and i will definitely be back soon that’s for sure!

My wife and I throughly enjoyed our meal although I got the fillet steak and for £36.00 I thought it was slightly dry. Other than that the rest of our meal was lovely.

Great steaks cooked to perfection on the open grill. Great wine list Great service the only thing I would say is go for one of the round tables or booths as the rest are a little close ! No probs if your with your mates but not ideal for an intimate or personal meal. It’s not cheap but the Steaks are fantastic which should be your reason for going

My fillet steak may have been the best I’ve ever eaten in a steak house either in the UK or the U S A where we holiday regularly. We had a really enjoyable evening to celebrate our anniversary! The service was efficient and unobtrusive. The ambience was relaxed and friendly, just what we like. Top quality food but without the pomp. Our cheese course was excellent too and with red wine and port, all very reasonably priced. We will definitely recommend and return.

For as much as they promote their meat cuts, they don't cook them as requested. All our ordered steaks were undercooked.
Also, we were advised, that if wanted dessert we would have to leave our table and eat it elsewhere in the restaurant? Rude! In all our international travels we have never been chased from our dinner table.

Food was lovely, but so overpriced... we were very concerned about the amount of flies in the restaurant???? It was cold outside... door in restaurant was closed? So where were all the flies coming from, it was that bad we couldn’t enjoy our meal for constantly swiping them away.. disgusting

A really great night at Chop House for my husband’s birthday. The food was amazing. We actually went for the 2 rump steaks with 2 sides for £30.00 which was on as it was a Monday night but the steak was still full size and cooked perfectly. As we were getting such a good deal we treated ourselves to both oysters and a starter. The oysters were super fresh and delicious and both the chicken wings and the short rib scotch egg were great. As it was my husband’s birthday they brought him out a wee dessert with a candle which was a really nice touch. The service was great and couldn’t complain about anything.

Great atmosphere. Attentive waiting staff. Starters were excellent. However, chateaubriand was medium/ well done rather than medium/rare as requested. This was disappointing for a restaurant which specialises in steaks. We've visited before and there was no problem with the cooking that time.

If you like steak this place is amazing. We shared a steak from the blackboard and it was huge! But really tasty. It was our anniversary and the waitress brought glasses of rope I which was lovely. The pudding was also very yummy. Service great too very attentive. Although very pricey and only a special treats but defiantly worth it.

Slow service food was average. Definitely need to replace the knifes they are not great at cutting steaks! The straw fries are that thin they are like crisps.

We dine at Chophouse Market Street on a monthly basis and always receive first class service & food. The staff here are fantastic, very welcoming & hospitable. That coupled with the amazing food on offer is a winner for us every time. We always have a fantastic experience.

Mediocre food, loud, overpriced, with awful service. We were seated at 7 pm on a Sunday, and the server kicked things off by telling us that they were out of a few items because the weekend had been busy. She listed two items that were already gone, and another that was about to sell out. Then she assured us that that was all they were missing and said something along the lines of "well, that's not as bad as I thought!" Except. . .we had chosen to go on Sunday because they offer a Sunday roast that looked appealing. So I asked about that, and she sort of laughed and told us it had sold out "long ago". So none of our top choices are available. So we decided to splurge on a shared steak, only to be told a solid 10 minutes after placing the order that they were sold out of that cut. Unclear why no one told us that when we placed the order, or why it took 10 minutes to let us know, but we were committed at this point so we ordered some other steaks and got on with it. Of the rotating cast of servers, some were brusque and disinterested but at least arguably professional, but one was downright rude. My partner had finished his cocktail while we had our starter, so when the server cleared the starter plate, he asked if we wanted more drinks. My partner said that he wanted to order a glass of wine, and the server just pointed at the wine menu on the table, walked away without another word and disappeared. No follow up on the drink, from anyone. We waited for our mains for 30 minutes. My partner was finally able to order wine AFTER they had already delivered our mains and sides. Water was only refilled once the whole evening, even though the glasses sat empty for a good portion of the time. My steak was over-cooked and under-seasoned and really just disappointing (but the mushrooms are great). Then we order a cheese board, only to be told - again, 15 minutes after placing the order - that one of the selections was not available. Fail, all around.
