Diner Reviews
  • "We routinely choose HSCH as our Special Occasion restaurant. We have celebrated our Anniversary there for years, and also spend New Years Eve with them. We did notice this time wasnt up to the usual standards. The service was good, but not the high level experience we've come to know from Hanover. The food also was good but not great as we have come to expect. The scallops were quite small on both appetizer and entree presentations, the oysters creole resembled small canned clams in size and the filet, quite honestly, wasnt up to the standards we would expect at a top shelf steak house. I would rather see prices increased than sacrifice quality."

  • "Great food, excellent atmosphere/ambiance, male bartender was helpful selecting wine and food choices - very knowledgable. Unfortunately we had the female bartender who had no personality and did not provide much beyond taking the order and delivering the drinks."

  • "This was my second visit to the hanover Street Chophouse and, as with the previous visit, the store met my expectations. The lighting is soft, service is smooth, and the steaks are cooked as ordered. This will be my "go to" place during further visits to the area."

  • "If you miss the great cuisine, impeccable wine and beer selection and ambience of the classical restaurants of yesteryear, give this place a try. It was a gratifying experience to find this level of cuisine and service in the Northeast US - and, yes, that includes Boston."

  • "Such a treat to dine here! Food was outstanding. Both my husband and I had the special: a Delmonico center wrapped in bacon, topped with portobello mushroom. Delicious! Our son had his first Filet Mignon. He wasn't disappointed! He also thought the Caesar salad was one of the best he has ever had. My son and I finished with a strawberry shortcake, and my favorite, tiramisu. Equally fantastic! And the wine list does not disappoint. Our server, Basil, was THE symbol of perfection. He was very accommodating to our needs and questions. Very proper and polite but approachable and kind. Hanover Street Chophouse is a very expensive restaurant, but you definitely get what you pay for here. Perfect location to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "This was our second trip here. HSC is a good reliable in the Manchester Restaurant scene, and serves a very good selection of American Steakhouse Classics with an excellent meat selection. It's fairly solid and the service is excellent. The ambience is dim and heavy-mahogany looking, with classic styling. The clientele is a cross section of local society. This is New Hampshire, so gentlemen in t-shirts and shorts are no surprise, the ladies are more elegant. We had an starter each and both of had meat of excellent quality as entrees. The vegetable of the day were a little colorless but tasty all the same. A man in a suit may ask you if your steak is OK, after you have clearly consumed three quarters of it. Service excellent and charming."

  • "We have visited HSC many times. This trip was the least enjoyable. It was extremely crowded due to two local concerts. It did thin out. I had made reservations several weeks prior and was told we would need to wait for the table. A concern given the fact that the bar was overly crowded, no seats, and getting a drink was next to impossible because the bartenders could not keep up with demand and getting their attention was challenging. This is not a reflection on them, they were working very hard to keep up. Meal was mediocre at best. Service (Agatha) was terrific. All in all not a very enjoyable experience, especially given the expense."

  • "We usually eat out everyweek but this is the 1st time we visited the Chop House and it will not be the last. This was one of the best dinners my wire and I have ever had. The Delmonico and the Chicken Pam Dinners were exceptional. We have bragged about our dinners to everyone since."

  • "This is my husband's favorite restaurant in NH so we often go on his birthday. He loves a good steak and this place always delivers. He raved about the iceberg wedge salad and his filet. My mother-in-law enjoyed her tuna but found the polenta tasteless. I thought the salmon was good but for some reason all I got was a huge pile of asparagus with it. I think the waiter misunderstood my request to have asparagus instead of the asparagus/pancetta mixture which was one of the side dishes that came with it. We will probably return because my husband enjoys the steak but for my birthday I would choose somewhere more interesting that has some vegetarian options."

  • "First visit to Hanover Street Chophouse and I was impressed. The atmosphere was intimate and charming. Very clean. The service was exceptional and the food lived up to our expectations. The Sunday Prix fixe menu was a great value and the serving sizes were more than expected. The four of us all had variations of the filet and the cut was one of the best I have had. Cooked to perfection for all of us- from the rare, to medium rare to the request of medium as well as the request for medium well done. Even the medium well done filet was tender moist and flavorful. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Dined on a Saturday evening at the Hanover Street Chophouse. Wonderful experience right from the start. On line reservations were so easy to make. Valet parking - so convenient. Once inside the atmosphere was both elegant and casual at the same time. The waitstaff was attentive and informative and I can only say the food was second to none. Our party of four had beef, lamb and fish and each one of us said the same thing -SUPURB!!! The owner took the time to stop by our table and it was a pleasure to meet him. We told him Howie sent us! Definitely will be returning there again soon. Thank you Chophouse for memorable evening."

  • "Don & Wanda, Our experience dining was extremely pleasant here at the Chophouse . As we entered the restaurant we had a nice warm greeting. The service was great and I could not talk enough about it. Richard was awesome and made sure every thing was perfect and it was. The food was great and I found taste bud I never new I had. What surprised us is we mention slightly it was my birthday to Richard. When I ordered desert Chocolate moose cake with a scoop of raspberry they had put a candle in it and writing on the plate in chocolate H B D nice touch. My wife speak Spanish they had a waiter come over to make sure every thing is good. The manager come over only for a moment and greeted us. We are sure to return."

  • "We had our 31st Anniversary Dinner at The Hanover Street Chophouse, and we were very pleased. Great classic steakhouse atmosphere. Wonderful steaks - my wife had the Filet Hollandaise and I had the 1855 Delmonico Rib eye. Both were perfect and cooked as ordered. Wait stuff was attentive, but not overbearing - just right for classic dining. WE would recommend it to anyone."

  • "I went on Open Table looking for a new place to try to take my wife for our anniversary. The Hanover Street Chop house had lots of great reviews so I decided to book a table. As a place for a special occasion, this place is perfect. It is quiet without being stuffy. The service is outstanding -- all of the wait staff are clearly experienced, no surly 19 year old waiters here. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing -- knowledgeable and friendly without being overly familiar. The food was amazing -- from the appetizers all the way through dessert. My wife's filet could be cut with a fork. The sour cream and garlic mashed potatoes were perfect. The vegetables were fresh, flavorful and not overcooked. We will definitely be returning"

  • "My wife and I have been to the Hanover Street Chop House on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding, the service excellent, and while the prices are high, the quality makes it worth the price. This restaurant is better than any chain steakhouse you might want to visit. It is recommended without qualification."

  • "We were there to celebrate two anniversaries. The other couple, who had never been there, liked it so much that they face-booked pictures of the delicious dishes. The presentation of the meals was beautifully done. The wine, food, and service was perfect. The Lamb was so good that it made you desire more! There was not one thing to complain about. It was an awesome start to our evening which ended at a show at the Palace Theatre across the street. Even the valet attendants were pleasant and with happy smiles on their faces. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!!"
