    Really great food and service. The only disappointment was that I out in the reservation we were celebrating a big birthday, I made a point of telling the server we were celebrating, we ordered a dessert…and…no recognition. Will rethink going here for special occasions.

    Love Chop Bar, mainly for its burgers, the best that I’ve had in the East Bay. On this latest occasion, the bottom of one side of the bun was soggy, which made it difficult to hold and keep together. Small complaint, though. Still tasted great, just had to resort to a knife&fork. I’ll be be back.

    Got the breakfast burrito for brunch and that bacon sss nice and thick. Wish I got fries instead of home fries because their ff are so addictive. Ordered pickles too and it was perfectly made. Well spiced, excellent texture, and not too tart or sweet.

    Little disappointed because I decided to go when I saw online that they had pork belly hash, but it wasn't on the current menu when we got there. We stayed anyway. Enjoyed the ambiance.

    Service was excellent and our wait staff was very professional. I was not too happy with my meal. I had the chuck roast and it was very greasy and lots of fat. The presentation was poor and the vegetables were soggy and overdone buried under the meat. My friend had a burger which was very good. Our appetizer and the desert was very good also.

    There were very few waitstaff working hard, but service suffered. E.g. i asked for a high chair for our baby when we were seated, and the host nodded as though he heard me, but then didn't provide one. Nor did the waitress seem to notice that we might want one even though we were sitting there with a baby. Toast came out without butter and i ultimately gave up on getting any after i finally flagged down waitress and asked her for some and none appeared many minutes later. The food overall was good.

    Table was dirty, service was slow, had to ask for my diet coke well after our meal was served, had to get up and ask for butter and salt...why aren't these included with brunch? I won't be back as these are basics of eating at a restaurant.

    Booked a table at Chop Bar for Sunday lunch/brunch and was simply blown away by the deliciousness!!! Other reviews complain that it’s not “brunchy” enough but that depends on your definition of brunch! If you want delicious chilaquiles or Chile verse TO DIE for pork - come to Choo Bar! Yummy guacamole on the side, a mimosa & a latte or mocha with extra chocolate and sugar - we were in HEAVEN! If you want boring brunch Americana stuff and/or to wait in line for ever - you can go anywhere! Delicious easy and great service - Chop Bar was the bomb! Will go again as soon as we can <3

    The martinis were great, the food was only average - and seems to have been under warming lights for too long before it got to us. It was a bit pricey for the quality of food.

    I have no delusions that it's easy to keep a restaurant running consistently at top quality right now, so I'm pretty forgiving about the little things. However, my experience at Chop Bar was just objectively not good. Service was friendly though not super attentive. For example, no water refill/replacement, dishes from the appetizers were not proactively cleared away even when stacked on the table. These things are easily forgiven. Kitchen really struggled to get their pace. It took more than 45 minutes for our 3 meals to come, and two of the three had to be sent back. Fried chicken was hot but the vegetables underneath were room temperature and had clearly been plated much earlier. I feared it would take forever so I specifically asked if they could just go microwave the vegetables, but they remade the dish and it took another 30 minutes. No removal of anything from the check, or offer of a cocktail, or even an apology. There are other places in Oakland to invest time/money.

    We LOVE Chop Bar so much. The biggest problem is, we are so in love with their burger that we never try anything else. We dream about the burger. Their beef is delivered daily from 100% natural Cream Co. we found out yesterday. They also serve the burger with bacon, avocado, phenomenal tomato, and aioli on an Acme bun. I should also mention the amazing staff. Alfredo in particular always makes us feel like we are part of the Chop Bar family. Oh and ps the wines are really delicious, as are the cocktails. Go soon!

    The steak I order was presented well but not good. The steak was very dry and instead of offering a replacement, I could hear staff arguing that it was properly cooked and two different staff people kindly stopped by my table to tell me why my assessment of the dish was wrong. I was excited to try the restaurant but have never had such a poor experience. The brought me back the steak I sent back to the kitchen. I ended up leaving and grabbing dinner from Sweetgreen. The service there was exceptional:)

    Love Chop Bar and have been going there for many years for brunch, lunch and dinner (they used to be across the street). We sit outside with the dog so not much ambience and sometimes car alarms to distract. Portions are large so good to split some items. Cocktails always impress.

    While we are kind of over the reclaimed lumber look of so many bars, it was easy to look past that once we were served. An excellent martini, followed by one of the best salads I've had in a long time. I know -- it's just salad, but this one was full of great flavor: heirloom tomatoes (real ones), the most succulent and savory chicken ever, and baby potatoes. It could easily be a meal. We then had their hamburger, and while it looks small, it is packed with flavor and the blue cheese really made it. I did ask for medium rare and it came out well done. Truth is, nobody on this continent knows how to do medium rare, alas. For dessert, the bread pudding, also excellent. Chop Bar was a welcome surprise and we will be back.

    We are big fans of Chop Bar! It’s equally good for brunch/lunch or dinner. Do yourself a favor and get the burger and the meatloaf (yes, really). They have a pretty good wine list and their cocktails are good. I went yesterday with friends and it was the first time we all used the ordering by phone system. It was a little confusing at first (we somehow ordered our food twice but an employee caught our mistake) but when it came time to pay it was incredibly easy to split the bill/pay just for what you ordered. It’s in a fantastic walking neighborhood with a ton of other cool spots to hop around to. Great spot to start a Sunday funday!
