    It was our first time dining at the Hanover Street Chophouse, so my husband and I didn't know what to expect.....What a fantastic place! From the ambiance, to the very pleasant and attentive servers, and most of all the amazing cuisine! It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. We most definitely will be back again!

    We were so hopeful as our waiter seemed attentive and rattled off the specials with great enthusiasm. The appetizers, I had the crab cocktail. were very good and nice portions. My table ordered the scallop dish, two filets, and a salmon dish. It took 55 minutes for our dinner to arrive. The waiter went dark and Managemnt huddled a few feet away from us, but we're radio silet until someone from our table waved one of them over after our food arrived cold and once entree, the salmon was significantly undercooked. The gentlemen looked at us like without introduction and listened to a few comments from our table and then saiid I'm sorry and wisked the salmon dish away for a redo. Management came back with the redo and told us the salmon dish would be comped and the drinks that were ordered would be on the house. Honestly, the entire meal should have been comped. No one should have a dining experience like this, no one. I can't recommend this establishment yet. I will consider retrying and will report back.

    The Hanover Street Chophouse has a great Sunday night deal - a three course meal for $37, which includes choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. We have eaten at HSC several times on a Sunday, and on the latest evening, it is clear the "deal" is becoming better known - the restaurant was fuller than it has been previously, but the experience was still wonderful. Service was attentive and prompt; the food itself really nice - a succulent piece of salmon on a bed of roasted vegetables, perfectly seared scallops on a bed of risotto - both entrees delicious. Our starters were similarly pleasant - I had a chopped salad that was refreshing in that it was all salad - not loaded up with other "stuff" as many salads are these days (and that fill you up before the main course arrives). The cocktail and wine menu are plentiful - not cheap, but there are plenty of wines by the glass to choose. The creme brûlée and flourless chocolate cake were perfect desserts to finish with - not too big, just right. Of course, by the time you pay for drinks and coffee and tip, the bill is quite a bit more than $37x2, but for the delicious meal we enjoyed, we did not mind. We highly recommend Hanover Street Chophouse.

    We dined here for our anniversary again this year and were not disappointed. We arrived a bit early and our table was ready. Service was great from the valet to the hostess to our waiter, Alan. We had oysters and shared a salad...delicious. My husband had the ribeye, which he enjoyed. It was cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely. I had the rack of lamb which was simply to die for. We shared a piece of carrot cake and it was a delicious ending to a lovely meal. Of course, the prices are high but so is the quality. We no longer save the chophouse for just special occasions, but dine here several times a year because the food is just that good.

  • Sides could use some help
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/9/2014
    Enjoyed almost everything about this restaurant. Can't beat the service, drinks or atmosphere. My husband chose this location for his birthday and I was hopeful that there would be a few interesting side dishes to fit into my vegetarian diet. This has not been a problem at other upscale restaurants. Not the case here. The asparagus was very undercooked and not very well seasoned. The roasted potatoes were uninspiring and the vegetable melody of brussel sprouts and onions was also lacking. The other four guests really enjoyed the main course, but everyone agreed the sides were not as good as they should be at a venue like this.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Hanover Street Chophouse recently. Always one of our favorite places to dine. The attentive staff, the intimate setting and the delicious food never disappoint! There was a little card on our table wishing us a Happy Anniversary....nice touch! We had the sweet potato soup special which was delicious and the field green salad with barn cheese and warm bacon vinaigrette....yummy! The filet was perfect as was my hangar steak. Topped it off with a shared pumpkin cheesecake and coffee....with a Happy Anniversary written on our dessert plate.....beautiful touch! Hanover Street Chophouse always delivers a great meal and a wonderful experience! Thank you for a terrific evening to celebrate love!

    Everything about this restaurant is first class. Valet parking is a nice start. When we checked in the hostess offered to hang our coats. Live piano music was playing in the background. The decor is tasteful. Tables are spaced nicely. The menu is much more than just steaks and chops, and includes seasonal ingredients. Our appetizers -crab cake and prosciutto and melon salad- were outstanding. Our steaks were perfectly cooked to proper temperature. The tenderloin with truffle butter is to die for! Our waiter Patrick was friendly, professional, and just-right attentive. The wine list is extensive. While this is definitely a place to go for a celebration or special occasion, why wait? We plan to become regulars!!

    My girlfriend and I had a terrific evening of drink and food. Starting with martinis at the bar, we had oysters and Caesar salad as apps. Her filet mignon was excellent. In fact it was better than my aged Kansas strip. Service was excellent. One downside was the proximity to other tables. It was too easy to overhear conversations at nearby tables, which made it feel less intimate.

    I requested a semi private table as we were discussing some business over dinner. The manager provided us with the private dining area which served our needs perfectly. The meal was a huge hit with our business guests. I am originally from NYC and would put the Chophouse in the same league if not better than many of the NYC favorites like S and L and Peter Luger's. Outstanding meal, great drinks, and a perfect setting.

    I took my boyfriend to the Chophouse to celebrate his new job. I had been before and absolutely loved it, as did my other dinner guests, so I thought it would be perfect. My boyfriend was very happy with the feel of the restaurant, the great service, and of course, the amazing food. The quality of the meals was top notch. There was nothing that we didn't thoroughly enjoy. I would highly recommend this fine establishment!

Put it to you this way, I will forego any other dining out to save up for a once a month trip to Hanover Street Chophouse. Every restaurant should strive to present this type of experience to their guests. Kudo's Chophouse

    Met friends we haven't seen for awhile. It is a good meeting place as it is quiet and you can have a conversation. Wine selection is excellent if you want to buy a bottle. If you want a glass of wine very limited. This is a pricey restaurant for an average night. We actually we a little disappointed the beef was excellent sides were just okay. For this price ($150.00 for meal no desert and 2 glasses of wine) I expect above the ordinary. The vegetables were cut up yellow peppers and mashed potatoes. Like I said the meal was okay and I can get okay anywhere. I would like to try their lunch menu to see what they offer. The staff was excellent and very attentive.

    We have been dining at the Chophouse for years and I am always impressed by the longevity of their staff. Obviously they think it is a great lace to work and that shows in the care taken with each diner. The food is of course, outstanding and we have never had a bad meal there. The restaurant has been under new ownership for a couple of years, but has not missed a beat. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Food was delicious, service was excellent! The only thing was the French Onion soup had leeks and mushrooms that were not specified on the menu. I cannot eat mushrooms and was disappointed with lack of information and changing up a classic recipe. But that would not keep me from going back. Loved it!

    Steaks cooked to perfection. Also able to substitute veggie and potato of the day for preferred side with a slight additional upcharge. Baked potato portion ample enough to share. Creamed spinach portion not too large but ample to share as well. Rather surprised at the $19/glass charge for a rye whiskey made in NH. Won't be ordering that again any time soon.

    We've been to Hanover Street Chophouse a few times over the years and the food is always excellent. What truly stood out this time was the service. When my husband was undecided about wine, the waiter noticed and brought over a bottle of a wine which had been opened for tasting and gave him a sample. When my husband passed on the potato, the waiter offered additional vegetables. My husband asked if they might have any fruit to have on the side. He was brought a beautiful bowl of berries.

    We came here for our 29th anniversary. reservations were recommended so I made reservations. We recently move back to the area so I was looking for a special place. It's not the best location, but it's easy to find, well lit, and parking was ample. The menu is balanced with selections for any taste, but we were there for steak. The wine menu is extensive. We ordered the prime rib which was cooked to perfection, flavor was excellent and it practically melted in your mouth. The sides are large and meant to be shared (we ordered the mashed potatoes). I ordered a side of the lobster Mac and cheese which was creamy and excellent. Service was fantastic. This our new favorite place and We'll be coming back here for sure.
