Burgers are delicious, served with a cup of fries and crispy thin onion rings. Ambiance is soothing. Dessert menu goes beyond "the Usual". Wait staff is attentive without being intrusive.

Great Place. We have been to a lot of local area Hanover Restaurants and glad we finally made it to Pine. It is a great place again and would recommend it again.

Welcome by hostess was very warm. Quiet restaurant when we arrived, which is unusual on a Sunday, and were given a choice of tables. Menu was varied and different enough that I did not feel like I was dining at "the same place" yet again. Server was fine, not overly friendly and did not seem to know what was on the menu. Desserts were not only delicious (we had three different selections) but beautiful. Banana strudel was a work of art. Valet parking is available and there is a cozy waiting area in the hotel lobby with a fireplace and comfortable chairs.

Each year our family dines at Pine on Christmas Eve. The ambiance is quite festive and we always enjoy viewing the grand Gingerbread village in the lobby. The meal is always wonderful and the wine list is excellent. Thank you, Pine for helping us celebrate the holidays each year!

I have to admit Pine is one of my favourite restaurants in the Upper Valley. I’ve always had a wonderful dining experience there. The ambiance is the best in Hanover, with the large inviting modern fireplace. Getting seated around the fire is always a treat. Their lunch salads are inventive, and their evening meals - such as the beef short rib on the menu at the moment - are delightful. Their cocktails are fantastic; Trade Winds is my favorite. The times I have brought my 10 year old sons with us, I’ve thought that the kids food was reasonably good. I hope that it’s hand made, and not out of a packet, but I wasn’t able to tell.
My only wish for Pine is that the coffee drinks (espresso, cappuccino) be better. I don’t know if they have a barista, or if the bar or wait staff have that training, but I’ve been disappointed with the quality of the coffee there. Otherwise, this is a five star restaurant.

We really like the ambiance of Pine and the menu is usually quite good, but the last two times, we have been disappointed with the lack of healthy wheat free options - we avoid gluten and the lack of a good bread, hamburger roll and dishes without gluten was surprising for the caliber of restaurant. The salad was over dressed. Both times the coffee was old and cold, even though I asked...to which the waiter each time answered, that the coffee was probably from breakfast. Offering to wait an extra 10 minutes after the check arrives or delivering the hot, newly made cup without changing the carafe, is a sign of poor management.

Went for brunch--I'm from the South, and I was astonished: the fried chicken and waffles was outstanding, the best I've ever had. The restaurant and the Inn, together, are top-flight. We all fell in love with the place.

My daughter and I had a delicious brunch here over the weekend. Beautiful decor, with the fire going and Christmas decorations abounding . Terrific service and mostly, delicous food: individual quiche and Ricotta toast, both vegetarian options.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. We had the spicy duck confit fettucine and the goat cheese and red kuri squash ravioli for mains, with a local goat cheese (Hildene Farm) for a starter. We also had a side of duck fat fingerling potatoes. The flavors in every dish were intense and complex. For dessert, we had vanilla bean creme brulee with a caramel sauce and eggnog panna cotta with rum raisin sauce. The sauces on both were, again, intensely flavorful and absolutely delicious. The noise level was fine in the dining room, after getting past what appeared to be a very enthusiastic gathering of Dartmouth students in the bar. I was worried, but the bar noise did not carry into the dining room. Service was fine.

We took our 21-month daughter for my birthday dinner at Pine. The restaurant prepared a high chair for her prior to our arrival, and gave us a kids menu (although we didn't end up ordering anything off of that menu). Overall the experience was pleasant. The food was very well prepared, and the portions were decent. The waitress we had was polite, although I would have liked it more if she could be a little more courteous. The noise level was overall good, however, there was one table next to us that was kind of loud. I would recommend it to others for special occasion or just a night out.

The food and service were unimpressive. French fries were terrible, soggy and greasy. It's amazing they don't know how to make French fries. Soup was OK but very bland. Main course was also uninspired, very bland, and cold. Cocktails were OK. We went there for a Thanksgiving dinner and were very disappointed. The place was also cold.

We've been to Pine many times. This was our least enjoyable experience.
Staff was very nice as always.
The waitstaff took orders from two tables nearby that were seated after us before our orders were taken. It took about 45 minutes to get our food when it wasn't even that busy.

Even though the waitress was standing 10 feet away from us all night- we had to wait a good while to get our check even though our food was finished and drinks were gone. Had she checked in earlier we would have had dessert and another drink- but we were pushing 1.5hrs and just wanted to get out.

I don't mind waiting for food orders- but waiting and waiting for a check to come effects my experience significantly.

Very nice restaurant with an interesting menu. Food was prepared and presented beautifully and tasted great. Serving sizes are small, with an emphasis on quality over quantity. Price is steep, especially for Hanover NH. Parking is difficult, so leave time to drive around or walk to the restaurant.

Pine was much better overall in the past. In the last three years it has declined in its menu choices and execution during high volume hours. The chef’s attempts at “fusion” dishes is wanting in flavor and content. The portions are small. The appetizer menu is small.
The prices are significant considering what is served.

I met my niece who attends Dartmouth for Sunday brunch. It was chilly outside and my niece was cold so the waiter (Dave) got the hotel manager who brought a lightweight coverlet for her. This was really thoughtful and appreciated. We enjoyed Steak Tartare and Steak frites --both were spectacular! Creme Brûlée was outstanding as well.
It was a wonderful experience !

The food was delicious and beautifully plated. Our server, however, seemed uninterested in taking care of us, and we frequently had to wave him down for basics like bread and utensils. Since our reservation was on the early side, it was hard to attribute the lapses to a full dining room. We were not demanding or expecting special treatment, but he simply was disinterested. Although the meal itself was good, the service pretty much ruined what was to be a special occasion.
