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.

We had Sunday roast a rumpsteak for lunch. Both was very good and worth the price. Especially the peppercorn sauce was outstanding.
Service was also very nice.

Definitely a recommendation.

Food overpriced for an average steak. However the service was shocking! The young man clearly hates his job and never cracked a smile the whole evening. Plenty of choice in Edinburgh so Chop House will have to up it’s game, especially the service.

If you appreciate flavour and have an understanding of food and ingredients, this is a place for you.
Simple, flavoursome no-nonsense food to be savoured with service to a high standard.
Worth every penny and pound .. thank you!

Great for a Steak & a good red wine - a little pricey as all sides are charged, saying that would definitely go again.

Love this place but fo not like the tables downstairs they are so difficult to get into. Otherwise the Food and service is extremely good. But not keen on matchstick Chios they are tasty but difficult to eat with a fork.

Coming off the train at Waverley , Chop House (Market Street) was ideal for pre rugby Lunch before heading to Murrayfield!

Great range of starters, mains and desserts!

The venue is superb, and the staff couldn’t be more helpful!

Needed more quantity to go with the quality. Had the roast, meat was great, but for the price, it needed more of everything.

Service wasnt the best, got wrong meals put down which was meant for another table and we never got asked if we would like more drink, when we got their attention they must have forgot ,we had to leave our table and go down to the bar ourselves, steaks grossly over priced for the quality.

Fabulous restaurant! We had the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection. I had a side order of dripping chips and onion rings whilst my husband had side orders of straw fries and mushrooms, it was all so good that we shared our sides! We had a bottle of the house merlot which we highly recommend as it complimented our dinner as well as the cheeseboard. Once finished we sat at the bar area and enjoyed the atmosphere and a few drinks. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be returning.

Such a great venue for a get together with friends. We shared oysters, scallops and then the Porterhouse beef. Cooked to perfection and coupled with some great red wines at a reasonable price. Service with a smile too. A great evening. Thank you Chophouse team.

This was my second time at the Chop House. I went back because the last time I was in Edinburgh the food and service was amazing. This time it left us underwhelmed. Food was not as good and the service was mediocre - It felt like all the staff would rather have been somewhere else.

The first time I visited chop house at market street we had an amazing waitress. She ran through everything with us, different types of steaks etc and always ensured we were having a great dining experience. The food was fantastic.

We booked the chop house for Valentine’s Day in advance and we had such a good experience last time. This time, our waiter didn’t explain anything to us, and was not interested in us at all. It really put a dampener on our evening that we had been looking forward to for months.

Hopefully next time on our return we will have a waiter/waitress that is interested in us and not just someone taking orders.

I have been to Chop House many times and would normally give 5 * all round but was a little disappointed with steaks this time, they were just warm and my friend who had Rib Eye found it to be chewy. Service was ok but not to the standard as in previous visits. I ordered breakfast Tea and received Green Tea, quickly changed and apologies. Staff all very pleasant in a positive nite.

A bit disappointed with the organization, it wasn't terribly busy on a sat night and twice in a row it was not apparent to the staff that they had ran out of the drink I asked for, the third option did run out when serving me.
Our waiter did not seem too knowledgable about the menu / special boards, it would have been nice for some complimentary info on the steaks/ wines on offer, was not very interactive with us. He initially asked us if we were ready to order as soon as we sat down, whilst cleaning the table next to us. This is not very professional in my opinion.
The food however was very nice.

I’ve been to all three restaurants no in Edinburgh and Market street was the worst. Steak was amazing but sadly the side dishes let the whole meal down. We have always enjoyed all the side dishes just as much as the steak. However the buttered greens were cold and not much flavour and the dripping chips and garlic potatoes had no flavour. Also we had been seated downstairs even although at the time off booking I had booked a proper sit down table upstairs ( did get moved when asked ). Don’t think I will go back to this restaurant but will go back to both other restaurants

First time at the ChopHouse and was impressed. We had scallops and they were amazing. We then had fillet steak and again lovely. Finished off with sticky toffee pudding and it was to die for.
If I was to criticise it at all would be it is very small inside and where we sat was at the top of the stairs next to the kitchen so was quite busy.
We will be back.

Toilets were disgusting. Hand dryer wasn’t working.
Tables to cramped. Made worse by the man next to us being drunk and rude.
Worth the wait for steak it was superb but not worth the price compared to other steak places in the city.

I would appreciate a choice to book upstairs or downstairs. Plus the bartender spilt his drink on me and didn’t get offered it for free. Which I found poor. Subsequently this reduced the service from a 5 star to a 2 star.
