About Chop House Leith
Best of British beef, butchered & dry-aged in house and cooked over an open flamed charcoal grill. Chop House Leith has brought an innovative blend of classic British steakhouse and cocktail bar to Constitution Street & is an exciting addition to the Shore’s vibrant culinary scene, brought to you by the team behind Monteiths, Sygn Bar, WestRoom & the White Horse Oyster Bar. Provenance is at the centre of the Chop House offer and the restaurant uses the finest beef sourced from artisan suppliers across Scotland. The meat is butchered on site and dry aged for up to 90 days to add flavour and increase tenderness. Only then is the beef cooked on an open flame 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! They have another Chop House on East Market St.

Chop House Leith Ratings and Reviews
Great place! Service was a little slow but that was because the table before us stayed longer than anticipated. Steak was amazing and we got the cheapest one! Would definitely reccomend to a friend 10/10. Was a bit loud and hard to hear my company but that was just cos it was so busy!
We dined at the chop house on a busy Saturday night. We arrived slightly early for our 7.30pm table, our table was ready so we were seated straight away.
The restaurant had a great atmosphere! Our waitress was very attentive and had a great knowledge of the steaks on offer. We selected a fillet & a 55 day aged sirloin, both were cooked to perfection!
We both said the steaks were one of the best we’ve tasted!
Overall we had a lovely time with excellent food and can’t wait to return. Thanks!
Steak was excellent, perfectly cooked (rare) and other food good - particularly the short rib scotch egg. Service was attentive but mildly error prone. The cheese platter was displaying rather a lot of "cheese miles" - why import cheese all the way from southern England? On the other hand I don't object to the wine miles - I had an excellent glass of Primitivo which worked with both steak and cheese.
Without a doubt one of the best cooked steaks that I have, had in quite a while. Chips could have done with being double fried -- a small complaint -- I also had the crisp lettuce in blue cheese dressing which was very nice.
My son had the vegetarian option. Which he say was well cooked and prepared and also substantial and tasty. Praise indeed.
I also had the cheese board, three good Scottish cheeses well presented.
On price, this is not a cheap restaurant, but it does offer good value for money. The food and service is outstanding for the price.
One other thing, do try the cocktails. Again well presented and very good.
This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed. Service and food very good, staff knowledgeable about their menu. I've got to give 4-5 for food as one if the desserts we had was poor, a delicious dish if it had been cooked a bit longer. Staff were quick to respond and thanked us for bringing to their attention and our bill reflected this. Have already started spreading the good word of the standard of our visit.
I literally cannot fault Chop House at all. I felt it was priced quite reasonably and was better value and quality than some of the more common steak houses in the city centre. I live close to the restaurant so it's no trouble for me to walk there but I can see that the location would be a slight downside for some. The service was impeccable from the moment that we walked in and the food was outstanding. I will definitely be back and recommend to all my friends!
Out for dinner. Good food. Excellent service from all members of staff particularly the managers on that evening. Despite being heavily pregnant, she was ever-present, ever-accommodating and it was by some distance the best service we have ever received in our years of dining out. Well recommended.
I've eaten a lot of steak and this has to be one of the best, if not the best! Porterhouse 700g shared with my husband on his birthday and it was fantastic. Great starters, great sides, great wine. We had a lovely table by the window and our waitress was really kind and knew her stuff.
Absolutely 1st class food, service and dining experience.
I've eaten ALOT of steaks in my life and without doubt this was the best I've ever had - find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
Also you simply must have the mussels in bone marrow broth for a starter. I can't explain the taste sensation it's just so lovely.
We visited for an anniversary meal and had a mixed experience. To be clear, the food was excellent, drinks were fine. However, the way we were treated by everyone *except* our table waiter left a lot to be desired. We booked through opentable and I noted that it was an anniversary meal - this was ignored by staff.
7:30 - arrived on time for our table and asked if we want to have a drink in the bar. Politely declined, said that if our table is ready we would take our seats. Front of house barely acknowledges this, seems to seat us through gritted teeth. We were then ignored for 15 minutes.
7:45 - drinks order taken, no thanks to the fact that there was no soft drinks menu anywhere.
8:00 - drinks arrive and menus are handed out
8:15 - order taken: 4 oysters and then 2 steaks
8:35 - 4 oysters arrive, cleared 10 mins later
9:15 - steaks and sauce arrive, sides arrive nearly 10 minutes later
9:50 - table cleared
10:00 - dessert menu offered and ice cream ordered
10:10 - ice cream arrived
10:20 - bill asked for and paid up
I wouldn't normally show timings in a review, it's overkill, but to not receive starters for over an hour (starters that require zero cooking), was infuriating . Three hours for not-even-three courses was ridiculous. Our waiter (tall, brown haired guy) was excellent, to be fair, but for the whole evening other staff were standing at the till, not supporting him, and he was running around. I feel bad criticising because our waiter and food was good, but there is an issue with leadership and management in this place and it left a sour taste.
Also, cutlery felt cheap. Again, not something I'd comment on normally but when paying top money I'd rather not be cutting into steak with something that feels like it's going to snap.
I'd struggle to recommend this place, and will not be returning with parents (which seemed plausible prior) because I know my father and father-in-law would flip their wigs at the treatment we received.
