We had a great anniversary dinner at Pine.... the waitress was extremely helpful with all aspects of the meal, both food and wine. The setting was lovely, but it was a football weekend so fairly loud and boisterous. I would think this is a great place for larger gatherings, hanging at the bar... people watching. All in all, a very nice evening.

Waste of time and money. Everyone's entree arrived undercooked or overcooked. Everything, including appetizers, was served tepid and was obviously pre-prepared and not fresh.

Great cocktails and well organized wine list. The menu was fresh and unique. The tomato soup starter was grand. My dining partner had the pork belly starter and found it very enjoyable. We both had the scallops and ravioli entree. Perfect portion with attractive presentation. Cost was quite reasonable for such a delightful venue.

Our lunch was below my expectations. The lobster sandwich was expensive and not worth it. The lobster meat was floating in lemon aioli killing all the flavor (by the way, the lobster roll at the Weathervane restaurant is much better and cheaper!). French fries were cold. My colleague ordered spicy salmon poke bowl, but she left half of it on her plate. Something sad is happening to the Pine; the quality of your food is deteriorating and your prices are going higher and higher. We used to love your food and didn't mind to spend some extra money for your exceptional meals. Alas, that's not the case anymore.

As always, the food was delicious. The dining room is beautiful; I love the décor and the light. The view of Main St. is gorgeous day or night. There is plenty of space between tables, therefore I can have a private conversation even when I am sitting near people I know. Our server was fantastic. He quickly read our vibe on timing and needs. He was present but gave us space - perfect balance. His descriptions of menu items were accurate and clear. It was a wonderful experience.

You could do with more vegetarian options for lunch. There were salads, true, but we didn't find a veg entree. We've been to the restaurant many times. Examples, perhaps: veggie stir fry, a pasta entree, veg chili; maybe get adventurous with seitan or tofu or farro. Thanks.

Our two dinners at Pine on this trip met all expectations. Just as we had remembered, the food was beautifully prepared and presented. And, as always, our server, John, was attentive, knowledgeable, discreet, timely, and warm at the same time. We will always make a special trip to Pine when we are in the vicinity.

I have been to Pine before 1 1/2 years ago. Had a lovely meal. The menu during this trip was sorely disappointing. Gnocchi too salty, tuna is red strawberry juice tasted good but was not appetizing to the eye, the goat cheese salad had very little goat cheese. Service was spotty - slow to respond.

Returned for breakfast a second time and we were not disappointed. My waffle came with heavenly real whipped cream on the side that had a mild vanilla hint. Coffee was great. My wife’s oatmeal came with great supply of assorted berries. One complaint is our waitress disappeared for a full half hour - we timed it. Very poor. Food probably was sitting under a heat lamp until she returned from whatever she was doing.

We've had quite a few meals at Pine over the last few years, but because the menu seemed to be staying in place we hadn't been back till last week. Although that great drink Smoke & Flowers is now gone, the menu was very different, and our dinner was excellent, probably the best we've had this summer. The preparation was thoughtful, with attention to detail, and the tastes were nuanced. We liked the drinks, and we very much enjoyed the whole evening. Many thanks to the chef, server & bartender--

This restaurant is in the main hotel in Hanover NH and serves the hotel well. I have eaten here a number of times over the last three years and this past weekend were the best two meals I've had there (lunch and dinner with two other diners). In the past, I had always felt that some of the dishes didn't really meet their potential or come together but this weekend all of our dishes were delicious and well executed. The food has always been fresh and pleasantly presented and was again this weekend. The ambiance is clean and lovely and I especially enjoy when we are seated in one of the window tables. It does get a bit loud at times but it's a very happy, energetic place. The service was unwaveringly friendly and accommodating but it seemed that they were a little overwhelmed at times by the number of people they were serving and so there were times where things were a little slow. As with most hotel restaurants, it is a little pricey but the only restaurant of its kind in town. We enjoyed it and look forward to returning.

We have found that, unfortunately, the quality of food at this attractive and bustling restaurant, has been steadily deteriorating over the last two years ... from an exceptionally high level to just about average ... and below average when taking into account the prices ... which have increased steadily. Also, table service used to be remarkably good. The staff continues to be pleasant and competent but the pace of service has slowed considerably ... understaffing may be the culprit.

I have enjoyed the Pine experience a couple of times in the past. The ambiance, food, and service have all been exemplary. This occasion though was thoroughly unpleasant. From the hostess acting as if she was doing us a favor by seating us 15 minutes after our reservation, to the waiter who acted like he could have cared less about our experience and finally to the appetizers, entrees, and cocktails that were mediocre at best. (except for one entree, the Korean Barbeque Chicken with bok choy, roasted potato, sausage "salad." We were all very disappointed.
