Wonderful dinner and a fantastic staff! The hostess who sat us was friendly, and James, who has a great personality, stopped at the table to see how we were doing. The waitress was knowledgeable and personable and it made for an enjoyable evening. The food was out of this world, top notch, and each course was absolutely delicious. Thanks for a great evening, we always enjoy a visit here!

Lovely dinner with an old friend. Attractive quiet dining area, excellent service and delicious food. We had a long leisurely dinner. Service was attentive without being obtrusive and we never felt rushed. We live near Lowell, MA but our friend was visiting Concord from St. Louis. It took about 50 minutes to drive from our home which is much less than most of our frequent trips into Boston. We will keep this in mind for future dinner dates.

I’ve been to the Granite Room many times; always nice. This particular visit was at 6pm, and the people at the bar area were very loud. We were seated at a table furthest from the bar, and it was loud. This is not typical.

I've eaten here many times both on weeknights and weekends. Really enjoyed dinner. The small bar is always filled but not too loud. The dining areas are very comfortable. Great service by Kori. You can tell the Chef takes care preparing your meal.

The food was well prepared and tasty and the service was first rate. We did not have to wait long for our dinner. After dinner, when leaving, the hostess took the time to chat with us about the history of the Centennial Inn. We were celebrating our anniversary and felt that the atmosphere was just right.

My girlfriend hit a home run with her choice of restaurants. The Granite proved to be the perfect place to celebrate that special occasion which happened to be her birthday & our engagement. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, the service well timed, & the food top notch. The North American Buffalo was, "fall of the bones" tender. The chef obviously took great care in the presentation of each dish & the live entertainment was also a nice touch. We both truly enjoyed our leisurely romantic dinner at the Granite.

We come come here for special occasions like Valentine's Day, birthdays and our anniversary. We also enjoy just dropping in. The food is always delicious. Our server this time was Corey and he did a great job paying attention to our needs on a busy night. We loved the Arancini, the soup was delicious and our filet was cooked to perfection. We had a great night, as always.

The menu had been updated since we were last in. We ordered the crab cake, quinoa salad, and the scallops. Unfortunately all of these items did not meet fine dining expectations, as the flavors and pairing were not as complimentary as they had been in the past.

Just excellent all around experience. Brie, our waitress , was attentive, helpful and added to our experience. Food is always good here. The check can be pricey but half options can make it more affordable I'd that's a concern.

We sat in the dining room next to the bar. Service was good, but the cocktail I ordered was forgotten even though they were not that busy.
There were 3 of us, special appetizers and salads were great options, and the meals were delicious. I had the gnocchi special which was perfect , and the buffalo short ribs were excellent as well.

Will definitely return next time I’m in Concord.

Food and service were fantastic. Only draw-backs: the dining room (at lunch time) was very chilly. Several patrons, including myself, ate with their coats over their shoulders. Also, the seats of the chairs are a bit deep for an average size woman, negating the ability to rest the back on the back of the chair...tiring and not very conducive to a relaxing meal.

I have been dining at the Granite for more than 17 years and this meal will be my last visit. The charm and elegance of the staff is gone; the waitress was more suited for a diner than an upscale restaurant. The menu has lost its adventurous appeal and overall quality. The kitchen did not make a dish correctly and one meal had to be returned. It is disappointing to lose the Granite as a dining choice.

I like the location and ambiance here. However the evening we went the waitress was maybe having a bad night? Not personable what so ever. The clam chowder was like water and bacon. Very poor. Now the good part.... great wine selection, the filet mignon was like butter, and the salmon was cooked perfectly. They have a really good bar food menu too. The hostess in the front was very friendly! The wait staff should be much more personable and friendly we felt.

I have not written a bad review in a long time and I normally wait a day so I am calm about it.

Our server was downright rude, she pronounced the name of a wine wrong and I corrected her and it was downhill from there. She dripped wine when she poured it, spilled part of a martini and never apologized or checked on us once meals were delivered!!

1st the restaurant has a bunch of Wine Spectator excellence awards but was out of the first Pinot Noir I picked, didn't deliver the other. I changed to a bottle of nice burgundy and it shows up warm... Wine Spectator you need to do a better job.

Dinner on a Monday I realize not alway getting the chef, most likely the sous chef or below.

Scallops and Risotto which local friends recommend. Scallops cooked well, Risotto was mush... I mean mush!!

Wife got the pork chop, it was cold... not luke warm when it arrives cold and a glaze look of I have been sitting for 10 minutes in the kitchen look to it.

I will say the gnocchi appetizer was very good and imaginative!

Check arrives and low and behold 2 bottles of wine on the check, one I didn't receive and the lukewarm one I did ...

I didn't make a fuss as we were with friends who picked the restaurant and I didn't want to embarrass them. Granite I hope this wasn't your best foot forward and just a Monday glitch because it was bad and if I was a food critic or a Wine Spectator critic you would of lost your rating!!

Was very disappointed.we were 15 minutes early. They made us feel like we had done something wrong. We asked to sit at the bar(second mistake). Bartender acted like we did not belong there. Refused to give my wife a taste of wine that a patron sitting next to us suggested. When we were finally seated the waitress made us feel very rushed. My wife’s dinner was over cooked. My plate was not plated as described in the menu. WILL NOT BE RETURNING!!!!!!

We had dinner at Granite two nights and we generally enjoyed it. We especially liked the scallops and risotto and the lamb lollipops. The buttermilk fried chicken was nice, but we didn't enjoy it as much. We thought that the bibb salad and the salmon were fairly bland.

The restaurant was pretty quiet, which we appreciate since so many restaurants are so noisy that it's hard to enjoy the experience. One night there was a two-piece jazz band, but it was low-key and not a problem. (The music wasn't to our taste, but it was low enough not to bother us.)

Both servers who helped us were very attentive and that helped as well.

We were there to have a date night (which is rare for those with kids as we all know). Everything was perfect--my only wish was that our 2-top table was smaller which seems like a funny request--we had a hard time talking quietly to each other and then hearing each other as we were sort of far away from each other.
