  • "My wife and I both thought our meals were fantastic! Great service, great ambiance, Outstanding food!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!!"

  • "My wife and I spent our 29th Anniversary here, so it had to be special. It was the best meal we have ever had anywhere at anytime, quite simply. I had the surf n turf lobster tails/filet mignon, she had the rack of lamb, and we split the sea scallops wrapped in bacon for a starter. We were full after, but had to split the carrot cake after (the half-size was plenty). The bottle of Murphy-Goode red wine was incredible and paired perfectly with our food. Brendon our server was personable, professional, prompt yet gave us our space at the same time. We never felt rushed are waited for anything. This is a relatively new restaurant, but is what the best restaurants in this area use to be. We will be back and are telling everyone."

  • "For the price, if expect a higher quality steak. $52 for a dry aged ribeye with little marbling and too much grissle. Lobster Mac & Chz was very good. Service was great, except when our leftovers were packaged all we got was our steak. No potato or veg was packed up!"

  • "My husband and I went to the Chop House to celebrate our anniversary. There was a large party seated close by making the atmosphere somewhat noisy. It was chilly outside, and in the restaurant too, as if the air conditioning was on. I ordered the filet, medium and was asked by the server if I wanted a sauce to accompany it. I decided a good steak doesn't need to be masked by a sauce, but when I cut into the filet it was tough and dry...I guess that might be where the sauce would come in handy. But then it wouldn't taste like a filet, it would just taste like a piece of beef We have frequented the Chop House in the past, and had pleasant experiences; not so much the last two times. "

  • "Overall it was nice but b/c I took my bf there for his bday, I was disappointed w/his meal. I ordered the surf and turf. My turf was superb but the surf (lobster tail) was the size of 2 jumbo shrimp. Very disappointing for a $55 price tag. My bf's meal was very small portion wise (special cod dish) and his potatoes were cold. The asparagus that came with my meal were limp and tasteless. They should have been grilled. For a total price of $140 w/tip, I expected much more."

  • "My wife and I went here for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The woman who was working the front desk was not friendly at all, as she did not welcome us nor did she even try to make any casual conversation. Food was excellent (we both had the meatloaf; incredible!) but it was very cold sitting there. So cold that we both kept our jackets on the entire meal. It boggles my mind that a fine restaurant can't spend the $$ to turn the heat up to a comfortable level. Mind you, we are skiers, so it's not like we are wimps when it comes to cold temperatures. It's just not something we expect when dining out. I'm not sure that we would return. Our waiter was very pleasant, although the service was slow. "

  • "We went during NH restaurant week. It was outstanding! The service was fantastic (thank you Catherine), the food was outstanding! Everything was cooked to perfection! My prime rib was cooked exactly as I like it (and it was a big piece of Prime Rib). My spouses Hanger Steak was also cooked exactly the way he likes it. Both were very flavorful. The mashed potates where fantastic and his creamed spinach was a perfect compliment to his meal. I can't recommend this place enough! "
