    We went to dinner at the Chophouse for our 32nd anniversary. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had a filet and both were superb. We also tried the avocado fries out of curiosity - they were as good as they sound! Our dinner was delicious and our waitress was top notch. We enjoyed ourselves very much! At the end, the waitress brought out a scrumptious chocolate cake with Happy Anniversary written on the plate in chocolate icing - a perfect way to end the meal!

    My husband and I have been here before and consider this a place to go for special occasions. I was looking forward to a great steak dinner. I ordered the filet with mushrooms. My husband ordered the Cowboy. His was pretty fatty but still enjoyed it. My filet, although cooked as requested, was much dryer than expected. It tasted ok, but was a huge disappointment for a $40+ steak. The noise level was louder than I expected. I guess some people just don't know how to speak softly. Our waitress was great, very personable without being in your face every minute.

    I have been here a few times and I love the food! I made my parents a reservation here and added in that it was their 34th anniversary. The restaurant had a note on the table that said happy anniversary and also verbally told them when they checked in! I thought that was nice they went the extra mile to put a note on their table! My parents loved the food as I expected and we will definitely be returning soon! HIGHLY recommended!

    We just celebrated our 38th anniversary at the chophouse on Thurs. It's our favorite place to go for special occasions. Everything was delicious as usual except that my wife's steak came to the table MR versus the MW that she ordered. Obviously this is a quick fix but she declined their offer to cook it more. Despite the fact that We insisted that everything had been delicious and that we were fine...they made frequent offers of free dessert, etc that we declined. When the bill arrived I happened to notice that they had removed the charge for our cocktails. I was blown away by their insistence on "making things right". Their aren't many establishments around that show this much concern for providing an outstanding dinning experience!

    Everything about this dining experience was excellent. 4 of us went for my brother's 50th birthday, pricy but worth it and you only live once! Our server, Patrick, couldn't have been more accomodating. VERY deserving of the 30% tip we left on a $340 bill.

    Had a woonderful night. Staff was wonderful front to back. I left my cluch in a booth and before I was 1 mile away they called so I could turn around before I even knew it was missing. Food was very good. My steak was a tab dry for a NY strip but everything was wonderful. Reserve wines was also a tab overprice ie. a $52 bottle of wine was $120. All our special requests were met and we also felt very special

    My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at the Hanover Street Chop House. We both loved every course and the service was exceptional. Our Waiter Patrick was very knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions. He took time to inform us of the food and in depth preparation and seemed rushed. We can't wait to go back.

    The Chophouse is a high-end restaurant though not in our budget very often, we will like to treat ourselves a couple times of year here. The food is superb and the staff outstanding. We are always treated wonderfully and never rushed like some places. Good food and drink deserve to be savored and not rushed and that is what the staff allows you to do - savor your meal.

    We enjoyed our recent dinner at Hanover Street Chophouse as we celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday. Entrees for our party of six people included sea scallops, surf and turf, filet mignon and Kansas City strip steak. All were prepared perfectly, and the service was friendly and attentive to our needs and special requests. This restaurant is one of our favorites, and we will definitely return in the very near future.

    Every time I've been to Hanover Street Chophouse has been a real treat. First of all the service has always been absolutely top-notch. The filet mignon is perfectly prepared and the Asian Pear martini is to die for! When I bring someone there for the first time, it immediately becomes one of their favorite places too. I always leave looking forward to my next trip to Manchester!

    We arrived a few minutes early but had to wait over 20 minutes to get seated. The wait service acted a bit arrogant. We both had the 8 oz filet. It was marvelous. We ordered tater tots and asparagus for sides. I didn't care for the tots but my husband enjoyed them. We both liked the asparagus. We had plenty to eat and it was served at a relaxed pace. We were sitting near a large group so it was noisy and a bit distracting. It was very expensive so I would probably reserve it for special occasions.

    We went for our 11th Anniversary and we made a reservation for 5:45 on a Friday night. There was no need for a reservation, but it did get busier a little later. The atmosphere was great, nice and quiet and the service was amazing. We never felt rushed. We had a great meal, the Filet was cooked perfectly and my wife loved her shrimp risotto.

    Everything was very nice except for one thing. I was very specific with the waitress on how I wanted my steak cooked. It came overcooked. I didn't want to make a big deal about it because I was with my family and it was a celebration. When she came by to see how things were, I shook my head and pointed to the stake. I got absolutely no response. I let it go since it was still very tasty. Everything else was very good. I will probably go back but next time order my steak one step more rare. After all, they can always cook it more.

    While a bit on the pricey side, you get what you pay for, with the food quality being excellent. Wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Ambiance could be a bit better -- we were seated next to the hostess station so it was a bit noisy as guests queued up, but not as noisy as a table near the kitchen would have been. Would certainly recommend for that special occasion, or any time you are in the mood for a quality steak (I assume the rest of the menu is just as wonderful).

    Went there for our anniversary dinner. Took our own bottle of wine. Corkage was inexpensive and service was good. A few goofs by the server were easily overcome. The Sunday special $37 dinner was a welcome surprise. A whole meal for less than we would have paid for just the filets we enjoyed. Best steak in town.

    And absolutely delicious. Great steaks and seafood (so I'm told) and fabulous sides for the vegetarian, plus an amazing breadbasket. It's a popular place - almost always jammed. The front desk is rarely accommodating, with attitude as they tell you that your table will be ready in 15 - 20 minutes, and you are dismissed to the bar - where there is no seating as all the people before you have also been relegated to the same small space. It has happened so many times, always with the same snide response when asking for your table booked months ahead, that I now assume it is house policy. It rather ruins the good food and friendly service.

    We enjoyed every aspect of the meal, from apps (the seafood tower is worth it) through the dessert. The service was friendly and very attentive. The Manhattan bar menu was a nice surprise with great selections, and house special cocktails were also creative and refreshing. We happened to get the 'Governor Lynch' booth in the back corner (there is a plaque) - an extra treat. Thanks for helping us mark 18 years!
