I honestly couldn't think of one thing they could've done better. If you are looking for the finest dining in NH, look no further.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe keep coming backMartini's excellent, food yummy, and service great6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerHad a fantastic anniversary dinner with my hubby. To start i had a big easy martini which was strong but delicious, perfect for sipping. We both had filet and they were cooked perfectly & came with a great side of mashed potato with whipped carrots, it was also delicious. For dessert I had the vanilla bean creme brûlée and my husband had chocolate cake, both were great! I highly recommend the Chophouse. We try to go every couple of months and it has never disappointed!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome menuGreat menu all prepared perfectly. Very attentive staff. Knowledgable staff.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Anniversary CelebrationWe went to Hannover Street Chop House for our 26th Wedding Anniversary and our server (Kris) made it a fantastic night. The food was good, we had the rib eye and filet (8oz), but nothing special (get better tasting steaks at the Texas Roadhouse) and they came with a vegetable mix (green beans, tomatoes, eggplant) that were equally average. However, the appetizer (tuna tartare), and the desert sampler plate were absolutely fantastic. The server was fantastic and he really did make the night for us.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMixed feelings this timeNot very happy with the waitress. She forgot drink orders and was never around. We had to ask a waiter to help us out. She was a nice person, but just not the type of service that I am used to at the Chop House. On the other hand, the food was out of this world, the rest of the staff including the Valet were Fantastic.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, EXCELLENT! A hiddenAs usual, EXCELLENT! A hidden gem is the dessert chef. She made the most delicious homemade cherry pie! She has a special of the day and we always get it.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMShe Asked For CambridgeOur 17th anniversary and my wife wanted to go somewhere in Cambridge. I heard of the Chop House on Boston Radio so I figured it was close enough.
Easy online reservations for two with concrete acknowledgment.
Got there early (25 minutes), valet parked and our table was ready. Service was top notch (friendly but not intrusive) with an extensive wine list and steak selection. Never rushed through our shared appetizers (calamari was melt in your mouth) and filet was done to perfect temperature.
Desert was fine, plus cappuccino and tea were piping hot.
We'll return to try other dishes.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience. WouldExcellent experience. Would highly recommend.

The food, from appetizer to desert is just great. The service is wonderful. The staff actually care about your dining experience, and the management does not hold back on the best ingredients . Every time I go there , it's better than the last.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent. FoodService was excellent. Food was superb, as we have witnessed many times.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to several ofWe have been to several of the other 'steak' restaurants and chophouse, however this was our first experience at the Hanover Street Chophouse. From the minute we walked in the door, we had a phenomenal experience. The bartender was extremely friendly and did just the right amount of chatting with us. When it was time to move on to our seats, we were greeted by another friendly waiter. He was most attentive to our needs and explained the menu to us superbly.
The food was absolutely mouth watering. From the salad, to the main meal to the spectacular dessert - this was the best dining experience I have ever had. We will most definitely be back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy this restaurant veryWe enjoy this restaurant very much....Food is amazing....we always have a wonderful time......5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousI am never disappointed when I dine at the HSC.

Great food, wine.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience at the chophouseOur experience at the chophouse was superb. They even remembered we were celebrating our anniversary and wrote a message for us on the desert plate it was a great ending to an even better experience . The food was devine and we will be returning very soon .5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTried for Restaurant WeekWe had heard great things about the restaurant so since they participated in NH's Restaurant Week we decided to try them out. Our waitress was wonderful. Food was good and there was nothing left on our plates!
I would definitely want to go back again for a special occasion. Fiance thinks it's too expensive.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticThe Hanover street chophouse is a fantastic restuarant. It's great for lunch and dinner. Much more affordable and faster at lunch. I love it there one of my favorite places to eat !!! Great service and food.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMKilled us with kindnessWe were a little late due to the lack of parking on this night. It was Restaurant Week and the place was slammed. I hate to be late but I hate to wait, even more. The hostesses seemed to be doing the best they could but it was the wait staff who made everything all right. From the moment we were seated, they killed us with attentive service. The food was excellent, but the service even more so.
We had plenty of time to enjoy our special evening and the staff was not intrusive in any way, just checked in with us at appropriate times and made sure we were enjoying ourselves.
I can't wait to return.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentIt is a wonderful place for special occasions or just every occasion. Very pleased, and hope to go there again in the future...5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment you walk inFrom the moment you walk in the experience was magical. The bartenders were helpful, comical and attentive. The wait staff were professional and attentive. The meals were fabulous . I had the rack of lamb and my husband had prime rib. We had the special salad which was very nice, the cheese and olives made it very special. We were celebrating our 33 wedding anniversary. The gluten free chocolate cake with the drizzle of chocolate "Happy Anniversary" made the evening extra special. Thank you. We will be back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent all around!Patrick our server was excellent! Great atmosphere, food and drinks. My personal favorite is the Tuna tapa! Recommend to all.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & Great ServiceWe've been to the Chophouse twice now and it is always great. Great Menu and specials and the service is outstanding they make you feel special! Perfect place for any special celebration.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe have eaten here several times, the food is always excellent and the service excellent as well.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday dinnerWe came here on a Friday night for my husband's birthday, and although we had a late reservation (8:30 PM), the service was absolutely excellent. We did have a small hiccup when my husband got a medium steak instead of the medium-rare he ordered, but the kitchen sent out a replacement in good time and gave us a shrimp cocktail to enjoy while waiting. The lobster bisque was delicious and both filets (8oz for me, 16oz bone-in for him) were perfectly done in the end. I highly recommend the truffle butter! Our only regret is that we were too full to try the crème brûlée. Maybe another time...5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrate most of our specialWe celebrate most of our special occasions at Chophouse!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food but priceyHad a very good meal this past weekend. Three of us had prime rib and I had the Delmonico cut and everyone was very pleased with the food. In combination with the sides and the seafood appetizer all was great. Service was very good as well. The only thing you have to be prepared for is Boston prices. That is the reason we do not frequent the Chophouse on a regular basis. They did have some very good Restaurant Week specials but a tab for four in Manchester NH for almost $500 before tip is pretty rich.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA True SteakhouseConsistency is what comes to mind when I think of the Chop House. Great steaks cooked to perfection and always accompanied with a nice selection of sides. Other menu items like the lamb shank, the veal chop served Oscar style and the fish of the day are equally delicious. And, the best wine list in town!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak houseThere aren't many of these in New Hampshire--a real treat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day Dinner !!My wife Lynda and I love going to the Hanover Street Chop House and our two daughters joined us for Mother's Day Dinner also. It was our daughters first time and they love it and now know why my wife and I call the Hanover Street Chop House our favorite restaurant. The food and service were outstanding as always and we can wait till our next visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining with one exceptionEverything about this restaurant is exceptional and excellent and always a consistent positive dining experience. That being said, one's expectations of superlative food and service are always extremely high which may sometimes cause a less than favorable reaction when a particular dish falls short of those expectations. Such was the case with the Mother's Day "leg of lamb" special which though highly touted proved to lack tenderness and superior meat quality. The chewiness and texture of the meat proved to be a disappointment when both cutting a portion or attempting to eat and swallow.
Based on the usual hight standards for such an offering, I would be reluctant to reorder this dish. Otherwise, everything else was perfect and memorable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing adult dinnerWhen looking for a special night for 2, Hanover Street Chop House was first on our list! We had a great experience. The food was perfectly cooked and delicious. Would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a great spot who is ok with paying a little extra. Well worth it for both atmosphere and food quality.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Steakhouse in ManchesterA friend recommended this place to us for our anniversary dinner and we are glad we tried it. An outstanding steakhouse in downtown Manchester, NH. As good as any of the big players in Boston without the stuffy and often loud businessmen ambiance. Wonderful service from our waiter Richard. Manager/Chef Stuart made us feel very welcome - as if we were old friends. Pricy but we still highly recommend it for a special occasion or no occasion at all! Just loved it!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RestaurantI took my boyfriend to the Chophouse before the Barry Manilow concert on Thurs, May 9th. We drove up from Boston. I wish the restaurant was closer so that we can dine there more often. Our waiter was phenomenal and the food was great from the appetizers to the dessert. I had the surf and turf. My tenderloin was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the special, the tomahawk steak. It was like nothing we had ever seen before. My boyfriend is a bit picky with restaurants and said that was the best steak he has ever had and we dine out often and have been to most of the big steak houses. We will definitely try to make another trip there in the future maybe for a special occasion.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantasitc meal atAnother fantasitc meal at the Chophouse with excellent service from Craig. Surf and Turb sooo good5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion Family DinnerWhen it was decided we would get together for dinner to welcome a visiting relative, there was no doubt where we all wanted to go. Between the food (we all had oysters before dinner on this visit) the exceptional service and the comfortable setting it was once again the perfect choice in Manchester to entertain guests. A 6pm reservation on a Thursday night is impossible to come by-book ahead if you can. There were a number of large tables of executives (men in ties) enjoying themselves. It's the same theory you use when trying to find a good diner-follow a truck driver. If you are looking for a good fine dining restaurant -follow the guys with a large expense account. By the way, bite the bullet and use the valet parking.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch diningFrom appetizers to the final cup of coffee my wife and I couldn't have asked for a better overall experience. The service was phenomenal, the restaurant was spotless and everyone was happy.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLamb Sausage Nirvana by Chef StuartBest way to start a great meal is to be greeted by Yolanda and Tanya! Always willing to go above and beyond to make sure you have a great dining experience. On this night, the amuse was lamb sausage with a goat cheese fondue and red wine Demi glacé accompanied by a puff pastry. Hands down phenomenal! Should be added to the menu!! As usual, steaks were cooked to perfection and the NY prime competes with the best of the best. A heavy hitter to start is the scallops wrapped with bacon! Great combination of pineapple salsa with a tomato purée or relish. The distinct combination of the two is perfect with the scallops and bacon. Really brings out the flavors and textures. Ask for Kristin and she will take great care of you. Kudos to all!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner in Manchester.Best dinner in Manchester. Wonderful service.

We dined with another couple and went on a Sunday at 4pm when they opened, it was the perfect time. The chef even came to our table to make sure our food was fine. We all had a memorable experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the Hanover StreetWe went to the Hanover Street Chophouse prior to heading to Palace Theater for play. We were running late due to late start out and heavy traffic due to venue at the Verizon Center that is just 4 blocks away. I called and let them know we were running late and to hold our table...we ended up being 35 minutes late. Our table was ready when we arrived, and just to add to the confusion there was another party of 2 with the same name-and our name is not common. Food, wine, service and ambiance were all excellent. We would both recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a good steak with a great wine! Excellent restaurant for that special evening or event! A great steakhouse - a rare find these days!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent, I've dinedfood was excellent, I've dined here many times and never been disappointed.

A gem of an establishment in Manchester, NH. My occasion was an intimate business lunch. The choice of venue was perfect, the service (Allan) was top of the line, the food was top of the line, the occasion was a resounding success.

The food was very good and although it is a bit on the expensive side it is great for a special occasion. This night was slightly noisy as there was some kind of small party of about a dozen people that were celebrating something and for a while were a bit loud. Aside from this, everything about this place is great and we will be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
