Hannah's on the square is not a great restaurant, it's a lot of hype for a mediocre place. The service is not good at all. The food was decent but really overpriced and not worth it. I will never go back or recommend it.

Food and service were very, very good, but the kitchen was SO slow - over 30 min for lunch was too long. We watched other tables get bread and butter and asked for some finally. Interestingly, the table next to us had bread/butter and their meal, but after they ate half of their meal, the server came by and said she needed to take their bread/butter back. The 2 ladies said "what was that about?". Kind of strange. Food is always great here, but they'll need to be more efficient. We were there weekday lunch - approximately 1 pm and only 7 tables had guests. (during our first visit we ordered dessert and it took 25 min to arrive (carrot cake and key lime pie). It had to be in the back ready to be served. Too expensive to wait that long for dessert. This was our 4th visit and we'll be back - I'm sure they'll get the timing issues under control. I would hate for that to dissuade people from trying their great food.

Lobster roll was terrific. We are from New England so we know a good lobster roll when we see and taste it. Great birthday lunch.

The server was very nice and knowledgeable of the menu, I wish I could remember his name. I just know he was tall and skinny. The food was delicious. I had a wedge salad, which I didn’t think would be too extravagant but the taste was absolutely amazing. Our food came to us in no time at all. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others!

Denton is college town with MANY restaurants. Sadly, though, we have a serious dearth of fine dining options. Hannah's is a shining light in the wilderness. Always a pleasant experience! Excellent wine-by-the-glass selection. The salmon cake appetizer was very good. The smoked duck entree was amazing.

I loved my experience at Hannah's. The food is fresh and obtained locally. Therefore some of their menu items are only seasonal. So if one goes there when shaved cauliflower salad is on the menu, don't pass up ordering it. We also had the scallops with grilled brussels sprout leaves. I would eat this again and again. The ambiance, artwork and layout were exquisite. Our server was Creed who was appropriately attentive. We are looking forward to our next outing up in Denton.

We love Hannah's. This time I had the chicken sandwich. It was so good. Love those homemade chips. Really wish I had gotten though, their special of the day which was blackened shrimp on a crescent roll. Husband had burger again & loved it. Not so crazy about a chicken veggie soup.

My husband & I were visiting our son & daughter in law & had dinner at Hannah’s to celebrate our son’s birthday. The food & service were excellent. I thought the wine prices were high although the wine we ordered was excellent. I would suggest adding one red wine around $50 instead of $75!

We have been there many times. Disappointed in the filet steak, the red fish was way over cooked and really not very mentionable. Desserts were okay but not outstanding. Beet salad was disappointing. We had a 7 pm reservation and did not leave until 9pm. I took an inordinate amount of time to get the main course.

The food was mediocre at best, my steak was under seasoned and over cooked while my wife’s food came out cold. We didn’t want to risk sending it back because we didn’t want to wait another hour after already having been at our table for two hours before our entrees even came out. Service was inattentive at best and painfully slow. We were nickel and dimed for extra bread (presented to us as if it was to make up for the long wait time). We were trying to give Hannah’s another shot but this puts us at two for two with bad experiences on special occasions.

We have been to Hannah's many times over the last several years. The food is always very good. However, the past few times we've visited; and especially Saturday night, we have not had a good experience. Saturday night, we had a drink at the bar before our reservation. The drinks were great but the bartenders were rude. That set us up for the hour long wait for two orders of fish. It shouldn't have taken that long to cook a medium rare tuna. Our server was training some other guy and neither one of them were especially attentive, even after I expressed my frustration on the wait. They later offered a free dessert but we didn't want to have to wait for it, not did we want dessert anyway.
Hopefully the next time we're there it will be different. But, the bartenders need an attitude adjustment and the kitchen has got to figure out how to get food out faster.

Our waiter, Adam, was charming but inattentive. While we enjoy a paced meal, this was as if we were lost in the corner. The food was spectacular and proper temperature when delivered. Just felt a little neglected. It was a birthday celebration and other than when we checked in at the desk, no mention was made of the special occasion. We had to flag another wait staff to have him take our check and payment to complete the evening. We have dined here many times and were disappointed in the level of service.

Hannah's never disappoints. The food quality and variety are always spot on. The service was great, although they lost our appetizer order and it didn't come out until after the salads. But they did comp our appetizer and the manager came to apologize. It is a bit pricey, but I think the quality of the food makes up for it.

First, I had a reservation and was unhappy when they seated us about 3 feet from a very loud, large group celebrating a birthday. There were about 4 tables empty on the other side of the room where we could have been seated. That being said, the service was very good and the food was delicious. I had lamb chops which were cooked to perfection and my husband had Osso Bucco which he very much enjoyed.
The interior was trendy but warm. The only suggestion I would have is they need some decent flatware! I think the flatware at Denny’s is nicer.
