    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!

    Haven't been here in awhile, but, with my son being home for a few weeks and now leaving again for Atlanta we wanted to treat him before he left (all of our special occasions are spent at the Chop House). We three had different salads, entree's, and dessert's. We all agreed that while the service is always great, the food seemed even better than all the times before. How is that possible when we've always thought their food was top notch?

    We bring friends from Brookline, MA, every year for our Christmas in July dinner and they always marvel at having such an outstanding restaurant so close to us in New Hampshire. We all had steak (filets and a Delmonico) that were, as always, cooked to perfection according to individual tastes (from rare to medium-well). The sides were delicious and the salads (a chopped salad and a Caesar) were outstanding. And for dessert the rhubarb was scrumptious. Drinks and wine were outstanding also, as was the service. For sure, our annual visit (and a few more in between) will continue.

    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.

    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.
