I ordered from the special offering and had Pumpkin, Squash Ravioli. It was okay, but I expected a little more flavor. My husband had the tuna, which was excellent. Too bad his portion was rather small. We shared a seasonal Maple Pecan Poe with cranberry ice cream. The dessert was excellent, however, I'm not sure I would have paired the... More

We don't get to steal away as a "four-family" for a dinner out and a quick vacation often, so when we do, it is special. After a fine dinner at our hotel, we wanted to try a local spot and BH was recommended. Hostess was very friendly and the atmosphere was warm. My daughter's onion soup...well, she enjoyed the broth... More

I am very sorry we missed the mark with your son's calamari. We would have been happy to correct it while you were here. I can assume that our service may not have been up to par. No excuses. Please try us again the next time you are here and Let me know you are coming. Henry More

Most of the food was ok... Nothing to rave about. Seared foie was excellent, onion soup was a little odd(rye), bisque was good, filet sliders undressed and unseasoned, lamb shank good. Meal took 1:45 for a twotop.

We should have done better, even though you visited on the busiest weekend of the year. We do not ever intend to be merely "so so". I hope you give us another chance the next time you are in Manchester. Henry More

It was a Sunday night and most of the restaurants we had chosen were either closed or booked. We walked in hoping we could find a table and the hostess was pleasant and able to sit us without any problem. The wait staff was outgoing, fast and efficient. The food was good but not fantastic. I had the Sicilian spiced... More

I am very glad to hear about the things we did right. The other stuff, not so. Portehouses can be a bit tricky and i am sorry you had one that was less than stellar. Salmon? Wild sockeye, lightly grilled and seasoned. I usually try to let the fish shine through ( I am the chef too). I hope we... More

Loved the menu. Service was excellent. Lobster bisque and fish dishes were my favourite. My husband had the steak and said it was reall great. Very handy as we stayed at the Inn across the road.

We used to eat here more than any rest. In Manchester, but the last time we went we were a bit turned off by the staff. The food here is quite good,especially the Duck. Other than that, the portions are decent sized but the food really isn't any better than the numerous higher end restaurants around Manchester. We just didn't... More

We must have made an impression, as you waited 11 months to 'review' us. I am sorry you feel we are pretentious. The hat thing... unfortunately people do not always remove their hats at table. It is hard enough to ask, but we have found it usually goes easier before settling in. I am sorry that you did not feel... More

The space is well laid out. There's a bar where you can have drink and a meal as well as two separate dining areas. Both dining areas were spacious so we didn't feel crowded. There's also an outdoor deck for dining outside. You'll know the place right area by the 10 very large solar panel arrays that power not only... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a well written review. I am sorry you were not delighted with everything... I am surprised by the tomatoes. We have been able to provide from our own garden and they have been outstanding this year. Nevertheless, we appreciate your candor and look forward to your return. More

I waited a few days to write this review because I wanted to think about the experience a bit before writing this. We had a group of 5 and I called to make a reservation.

Thanks to TA reviews we gave this a try - it was wonderful! Great service plus delicious and creative food. The chilled turnip soup was a real treat, along with braised beef entrees. There were a number of menu times we would like to try!
