About Chop Bloc
Welcome to Chop Bloc. We're housed in an 18th century former brewer's building bringing you three floors of exceptional steaks and burgers, including our very own Bloc Bar upstairs serving the finest cocktails in town. We are an independent business run by local people based in the heart of Chelmsford City Centre.
We're passionate about meat and have learnt about all aspects of the farm-to-fork process. We've trained with the best, tasted the best and now we're bringing the very best in steak, burgers & classic grill dishes to Chelmsford.
Service is good although we did order two brandy’s at £18 each and had to chase them up. Food was nice, often eat steak at Hawkmore in the City so comparing it to the best steak restaurant in London and chop bloc is definitely a good steak. Would recommend the sea bass if your not into the meat, that was a nice and plenty of it.
Expected better from a premium steakhouse. Our whole evening was farcical. Drinks served in inappropriate glasses, food order ‘lost’, and when it did arrive the manner of which it was served was awful. Had to ask for the plates after being told they couldn’t find any.... The main course arrived before starter plates were cleared. Dessert nearly slid off the plate due to the way the plate was shoved before my partner. Not sure if I’ll be going back after this experience....
We had a great time @ Chop Block, the food was fantastic & cooked perfectly. The Staff were very attentive and friendly which helped us thoroughly enjoy our evening. Highly recommend
We had our Office Christmas Party on Friday night and what a fantastic night we all had. The food was amazing as was the service. It could n not have gone any better.
Fantastic service from a very friendly and attentive waitress also thanks for the great birthday desert for my mate.
My main meal was perfect Steak and sides were everything i wanted. The only let down was the honey and garlic chicken wings for starter. The meat and bones was very brusied and the meat was mainly black instead of white so it wasnt appetizing .
Having booked the table well in advance I was very disappointed to get a telephone call on Saturday to confirm the table but to be told the bar was closed for a private function, one of the reasons I booked at the Chop Bloc was to meet friends in the bar for a pre dinner drink. If you are going to close the bar then you should inform your customers at the time of booking.
Food was the beast we’ve had with you yet. Wine was lovely and the service was really good. We will definitely be back. The only comment I have is that the cocktails are soooo expensive. Is there any need?
The meal was excellent as usual. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. thank you.
Where me and my partner sat , it really hard to have a conversation as we had two big parties next to us .
Great food and service . The waitress provided us advice on our steak when asked which was helpful
Can't fault the food, but service was very disappointing. I realise it was a busy Saturday night, but we didn't appreciate having to wait in the lobby for 15 minutes for our table to be ready (a table for just two I might add that was booked two months in advance). We did manage to order drinks whilst waiting, but they didn't materialise until we were at our table and finally placing our food order we then had to wait another half an hour for our starters to arrive.
Amazing restaurant! Food and service brilliant . Highly recommend. Thankyou !
Very good meal.
We did the Wednesday night offer, great value for money, lovely helpful staff, very warm & accomodating!!
Amy was incredible, the staff all made us feel extremely special, it was my partners birthday and Amy made sure it was a brilliant one. The food was off the chart good and the whole night was a pleasurable experience. I have already told all my friends and we will be booking to come back after Christmas. Thank you Amy!!
Very disappointed with our meals. Starters were okay, however our mains weren’t up to standard. We ordered a medium rare T-bone steak which came out rare and half the steak was fat rather than meat. The other meal was the steakhouse burger which is meant to be cooked medium rare and was cooked through with no pink at all with a hard bun. For sides we asked for chips not fat chips and got the fat chips. We had booked the cinema so did not have time to send the meals back, however would have done as we did not enjoy it at all. Very low standard for a restaurant that is meant to be a steakhouse.
Service was incredibly slow, took us 45 minutes to even get some tap water and then an hour for our mains. I don’t think this was fault of the server as she looked very busy, maybe the restuarant needs more staff but it was far too long to wait for food. Luckily the food was lovely when it got here and staff were very accommodating.
Lovely foods Great Atmosphere Nice night out with group of friends Cocktail very good Very pricey :-(
Despite booking a table for 8.15 we were not seated until 9pm. when we arrived we were taken to the bar and waited until i asked if our table was ready. i had a hostile response when i spoke to someone later on and was told they are busy and they couldn't kick people off the table (which transpired later he was not aware of our situation) My food was warm and one of the party's steak was rare and not medium as requested, he ate it anyway and was later poorly. another member of our party ordered a drink and waited a good 20 mins to half hour for this to arrive. i think there is culmination of things that added to not having the best experience with yourselves.
The waiters and waitresses were lovely and the food was very good. However, our mains took over an hour to come to our table, sides were forgetten and my partner's steak was really rare (he asked for medium but luckily he didn't mind that much). We have been several times here and this time we were let down. The waitress deducted our mains from the menu which we really appreciated.
Our waiter was fantastic! Food was overpriced. £32 for a steak and chips. No veg?!
My second visit & our steaks were not as good as the first time I'm afraid. Was it because it was a Tuesday deal? Service however was very good as before.
I cannot praise enough. From the greeting on the phone when I booked to the ease and friendliness of the call I made to bring forward our booking, to the birthday greeting to my husband. You are lovely. The service was faultless. The food was just incredible. We both thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we will be back again soon.
