About Chop House Leith

Best of British beef, butchered & dry-aged in house and cooked over an open flame charcoal grill. The Chop House Leith has brought an innovative blend of classic British steakhouse and cocktail bar to Constitution Street. The Chop House is an exciting addition to the Shore’s vibrant culinary scene, brought to you by the team behind Monteiths Restaurant, Sygn Bar and The WestRoom. 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, brunch, lunch and Sunday roast!

Steak was exceptional, and the staff were very friendly. We got a sharing plate and it was delicious - my partner is very into food and he said it was the best steak he'd had in Edinburgh.

·Dined 3 days ago

Been a huge advocate of Chop House both Leith and Market St for a while now. Myself and my partner have dined here a few times. I was sad to see the poor level of service on my last visit. Very rushed and no courtesy taken to ensure at least a mildly pleasant experience. Food always good but I appreciate the whole experience. A moody waitress spoils this for me. I spent a good amount of money for my partners birthday and expect a certain level of service. Flat Moet champagne, not taking coats when I clearly said yes to her initial offering (all very rushed and rude), no small talk and just sticking the bill infront of my face without any word. Restaurant was not even busy. I now would think twice before returning. Don't take your partner here if you are looking for a romantic dining environment.

·Dined on 10 December 2016

My second visit to the Chop House. Our first was in The Arches location which was lovely and no complaints. My second was to the leith restaurant. Our table was 15 minutes late to be seated, despite the table being ready the whole time. Possibly a ploy to get us to drink a cocktail? We enjoyed a lovely meal however as soon as our mains were cleared we were asked to move to the bar again as they needed our table... we had only been seated an hour and 15 minutes and we had prebooked our table with no notice that they would need it back. Not ideal and we all felt rushed along. Improvement of the service needed.

First time here. Post-theatre dinner for 8. We were seated at a fabulous round dining table in an area that felt like our own private dining space! The service was prompt and I would recommend leaving the starters and sides to Chef to choose. Nothing was a disappointment.

I'll be back :-)

·Dined on 9 November 2016

Booked for 7.30pm and turned up right on time but our table wasn't ready -we were seated at the bar and I couldn't help but feel it was a tactic to get you to buy more drinks (which for me isn't a problem normally, but don't like being made to feel that I have to).

After a good 5/10 minutes at the bar the Waiter came to show us to our seat, she didn't take out coats and we had to ask if they could put them aside as the table/seating space was tight - I found this a little off putting, surely taking coats is standard practice.

We were waiting a good while for the waiter to take our order and waited so long for the food that we asked for some bread.

The food came and it was fantastic, we had the 2 rump steaks and 2 sides offer - which was great value. I would definitely go back but I must highlight that it's more of a casual atmosphere, music is pretty loud and it's seems quite noises, with that it's not as refined as some other steak restaurants in Edinburgh.

·Dined on 29 October 2016

Took husband for birthday meal. He had a really nice fillet steak. Not so much on offer for me as I mainly eat chicken rather than other meat. I had the cheeseburger, which was a nice cut of meat but would've liked a healthier/wider range of choice. Was tempted by the steak but a bit pricey if you're not a huge steak lover. Might try it next time though. Starters a little limited by Blue cheese as an ingredient in the two we liked the sound of otherwise. Desert menu looked good, although we didn't have room to try any. Restaurant itself is lovely, comfortable, ambient and modern. Staff nice and very professional. Very nice evening.

·Dined on 29 October 2016

Overall pretty good. Skimpy on your standard extras like bread and butter, none with your mussels unless you paid extra for a large portionif bread alone???? Given the prices charged and the fact that it's still fairly new this restaurant has to be aware of the competition around the area and should be careful not to out price itself. Our bill was £100 for one starter to share (no bread) and two rib eye steak with one bottle of wine. Liked the ambience and service however, expected a bit more for the money
