The food was great. I had a difficult time choosing only one dish, and was a little disappointed when the waitress came back and they were out of it. But, i picked a different dish and they brought me a side from the first dish because the waitress new I wanted to try it.

Best fine dining in Concord
We celebrated a birthday with another couple and decided to do it at The Granite Restaurant. They are from Bedford NH with a lot of good restaurant choices but thought it would be worth the ride to Concord and dine at The Granite Restaurant. Chef Corey always puts out a great quality product and he did so once again. The other couple suggested because it was a Monday night that we probably did not need reservations. Thank goodness we used OpenTable to make them because it was very busy! Always a consistent quality experience with great food.

Food preparation, variety,
Food preparation, variety, presentation a pleasant surprise in Concord, NH. Wine list extensive but a bit overpriced by the glass and bottle. A good spot to gather with friends who enjoy eating out and expect to pay for the experience.

The Granite Restaurant exceeded by expectations... The food was wonderful for our late morning breakfast but I was particularly impressed with the service we received. Our waitress was quick to ask if we needed to be served in short-order or were we looking to relax and take our time. We felt most welcomed and comfortable throughout our visit. I will definitely return to the Granite Restaurant.

dinner with parents
This was out first time here and we had an overall good experience. We had reservations but they couldn't accommodate us immediately but we didn't have to wait too long. We had delicious meals that were creatively prepared and presented, and boy were they tasty. My curried quinoa and tofu stuffed peppers were unique and relish, the lamb was great, the scallops were great with lemon fettucine, and the pork chop was a very generous serving and relish. I had what I think was the best lemon sorbet. Nice selection of wines too.

Simply the Best
My wife and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary here and the staff at Granite made it very special. Tami our server was awesome, very professional and knowledgeable about the cuisine choices. I was able to book on Open Table and make a request for a quite section (Thursday night). The food was simply the best. The portion sizes were appropriate and very unique. The only thing I could recommend is do away with the electric candles and get real ones.

My husband and I have been
My husband and I have been to Granite several times. We live in Bedford, NH. It is one of my favorite restaurants. We didn't like our table in the far room and our request for a move to the fireplace room was graciously handled. It was my husband's birthday and it was generous that he was treated to a dessert. We very much appreciated the deameanor and skill of Erica, our server. We do not like over bearing or overly attentive service. She was knowledgeable on several questions.

Had a nice Fathers Day meal here with the wife. We had the Asparagus Tempura and Crabcake apps.....very nice. I had the Filet, cooked medium with mashed and a nice veal/Cabernet reduction I think. Paula had the Lamb, medium, with Garlic Polenta.No wine, just lemon water.Although the wine list looked very well selected. The meals were very well prepared and presented. The waiter was friendly and professional. We had the Bannna Begnies and the Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice cream
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed each course and the quiet surroundings (live music fit in nicely). They were able to accommodate food allergies and gluten-free requests quite easily. We'll be back (as long as we can find a babysitter.)
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed everything about our visit. The food was fantastic. Everyone's meal was cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and no pressure was felt to hurry up a decision. This is our go to place for special occasions.

A Great Find in Cocord, NH
While traveling we picked this restaurant based on Wine Spectator and AAA tour book listings. The food and wine were outstanding. We liked that you could get half-size orders on both entrees and salads. They had a favorite of ours on the wine list and our waited Nicholas was friendly and personable. All in all, a very good experience.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A go to!
I really like the Granite. Service is always excellent, food is very good, and I love that there are choices in portion sizes. I was a little underwhelmed by my meal selection this time, but in the past I've been very pleased with my food. There is a bar menu, and a nosh menu so there are lots of options. The burger is really excellent, and reasonably priced, too! I'll be back - again and again!

We enjoyed the restaurant and loved the interesting hotel that it was in.

We were looking for a place close to home to enjoy a quiet Saturday evening dinner. We had been to the Granite a number of years ago but not recently - since the "new" chef had joined. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening-efficient, professional and personable staff. The ambiance was great. The food was delicious and the half portion a wonderful choice for a small eater like myself. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his full portion!
We feel we've found a nice "special" place to dine in Concord. It's a bit expensive for that usual Saturday dinner out, but we're happy to know it's a nice option for a special dinner in a city where there aren't a lot of options for "upscale dining". We'll definitely be back!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always excellent food
Love the half portions--that makes it possible to have several courses! You can choose a half salad or a half entree. Appetizers and desserts are not available in half portions, but for desserts the wait staff will bring extra spoons. Decor is quite hip. Pricey but worth it. It is an event to go out to dinner here--it takes a while but there is no point to being in a hurry when eating here. EVerything is made specially for the diner individually--and that takes time. Good wine list.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice for special dinners
There are not too many decent restaurants in Concord so they don't have a lot of competition but they do a great job anyway. The menu is very good with several salads, appetizers, and entries to choose from. There is always a supplementary list of special items to go with the regular menu. Service is very good. It is not super quiet but if you are seated a ways from the bar it is still very acceptable noise level. I would suggest making that request with your reservation.

Imaginative food with great flavors and beautiful presentation.

As usual this lived up to our expectations, delicious food, very nice waiter, just yum!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I were on vacation in New Hampshire and stayed at the Centennial which was an experience in itself but Granite was the icing on the cake. The food and service were both excellent and I would recommend it to anyone in the Concord area. The only downside was we were there on a Friday night and the bar crowd was rather loud. It was preseason football time and the game watchers were getting rather heated. The bar is located inside the seating area and it diminishes the enjoyment of the dining experience. Go but try to avoid game night!

Delicious, relaxed, well-priced
Our recent dinner at Granite was completely enjoyable in all ways: delightful and inventive pre-dinner cocktails, delicious and creative meal, nice bottle of wine, relaxed atmosphere, attentive service, and all reasonably priced. A home run.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful and very good food
The Centennial Hotel was excellent in general. It's a beautiful part of the country, and both the hotel and restaurant measure up. The Granite Restaurant offers extensive fresh seafood selections, as well as meats and other entrees. The fresh cheese appetizer was fantastic. The lobster special was even better. The setting was perfect for a small business meeting and meal, although our host and his wife (locals) eat there often as well. I would definitely recommend.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service!
We've been to Granite Restaurant several times and it never fails to please. The chef always has some wonderful, seasonal and fresh options including gluten free and dairy free as needed. The servers are wonderful and friendly, and the crisp linens and lovely surroundings make it either a special night, or a nice get-together with friends.

One of Concord's Two Best
I've had only one disappointing meal at the Granite Grille over the years, but then I've none at Angelina's for a much longer time. So if you're looking to take your time and don't mind spend your bucks, those are the two to visit in the capital city.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A gem in Concord. The finest quality food in town by far. Excellent in every way. Fantastic menu with a unique half serving offered on most items which presents a great opportunity to try several menu items vs just one or two. Staff are knowledgeable and precise. Outstanding-I'll say it again.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
better than hoped for
I had read a number of the reviews on this place online and some had good experiences and some had not so good. We had a table of 4 (and an infant) and had an incredible dinner. The food was superb....the drinks were excellent....the service was outstanding.
We had an array of appetizers and salads, full entrees and desserts. I would an expect a restaurant like this to be somewhere in Boston or Providence, not Concord.
We will definitely recommend it to family and friends and plan to return ourselves.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
very nice evening at the Granite.
very nice evening at the Granite. Food was good, waitstaff helpful, but service from kitchen was slow, We especially appreciate the half portions. A very nice choice in Concord
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
It just gets better and better. I love that you can order half portions of the entrees and signature salads... it allows for more sampling of the interesting menu. Chef Cory has a real talent for soups--be sure to try the special soup of the evening (even if it sounds a little experimental) as they are always outstanding and a great way to begin! Oysters are always perfect. The duck is outstanding. The chocolate orange mousse was just enough to share and cap off a wonderful meal.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE THIS PLACE
We have eaten here quite a few times - breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu choices for all three are interesting and delicious. Service has always been good and it is not too noisy even when full. One of our favorites.

The chef was very accommodating with one member of our party requesting no salt meal. The food was delicious, especially the duck. Near the end of our meal, the restaurant became very noisy which made it difficult to hear one another. Glad to see the restaurant doing so well.

Beautiful and memorable dinner. Tuna tartare was perfection, and salmon was as well. Spouse had scallops that he said were amazing. We love the option for half portion if you've overdone it with the tempting appetizers.

Concord's Hidden Gem
For those of us who live in Concord, we don't often think of going to a local hotel for dinner. Shame on us! In my humble opinion, The Granite is tied for first place for THE BEST restaurant in Concord for fine dining, the other one being home-made Italian, so if you feel like something other than that, this is your place. The portions are what you expect for fine dining, elegantly portioned and then infused with the best flavors you can imagine. If there is any room leftover that is your gift for the evening; then you have room for a delicious dessert. The prices are very reasonable. I choose Granite for my birthdays, brunch on a special occasion, and just recently, I will miss you, Granite. Wish I had visited more often!

Granite Restaurant meals
With one vegetarian and two gluten-free diets to contend with, Granite had enough variety to make us all happy! And, the staff is really lovely. The food seemed fresh and of top quality, and was very thoughtfully prepared, so the true essence of the ingredients was enhanced instead of overpowered. We returned for an early breakfast! Omelettes were so well seasoned they bordered on a little too salty, but very tasty with fresh ingredients. The hash browns were artfully done! They neglected to serve one side. However, we were in a hurry, so we just paid the bill without making an issue out of it. We also noticed that salt and pepper were automatically provided at breakfast, but not at dinner. Minor issues aside, a really great restaurant!

Great Gettaway Spot
Buzzed up from CT to see show at the Capitol Center for the Arts. Checked in the Cenntenial Hotel, had a fantastic meal with great service. Many entrees are have portion at great price, allowing you to get salad and appetizer and still have chance at finishing meal without over doing it. Overall, a great place to gettaway for an evening or an overnighter.

Granite is a very good restaurant, conveniently located right in downtown Concord in the also very nice Centennial Hotel. Food was smart, well-prepared, and tasty. We especially liked the possibility of half-portions for most entrees--very smart. Excellent and reasonably priced wine list. Service both friendly and efficient. Drinks generous. We also had a very nice brunch there the following morning. We were just passing through but wish this was in our hometown!!
