The staff were all very welcoming, attentive but not overly so. I ordered a crab cake appetizer, along with their carrot salad and pan seared scallops. Service was never rushed, very cordial and friendly. The second and third course never interfered with the previous courses,...but there was never much wait either. Timing seemed exceptional.Waitress was absolutely exceptional but her English accent prevented me from properly acknowledging her name. My bad! She gave me outstanding service and deserves proper credit for it. I am a very discriminate patron but want to praise exceptional service.
The food was simply exceptional . All were plated beautifully! Crab cake was moist & flavorful and along with the garnishment, the whole package was outstanding. Carrot salad very unique, delicious and unlike anything else I have tasted. Earthy tones mixed with the sweetness of dressing and accompaniments. Pan seared scallops were very rich and buttery while seared to perfection. Paired well with plate garnishments. Enjoyed a fresh, delicious cup of coffee along with New York cheesecake for desert. A peaceful, flavorful and relax full way to spend an evening. If I were a local, i would become a very pleased regular.More

I am delighted to hear you had such an great experience with us! Lucy was your server and we feel she embodies what true hospitality is. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
Best wishes and stay safe,
well we were looking for a lunch spot and our daughter suggested this..we were very pleased, in a big old brick inn which probably has some interesting history, dining room is very nice and upscale looking, service was pleasant, drinks were good and they had...some interesting ones to offer, food was excellent, had their spinach salad with chicken and their fish and chips...really liked it here, they have some different hours serving breakfast and lunch and dinner in certain time slots...very nice!!More
We checked into the Centennial Hotel and, after a long travel day, decided to keep things easy and eat at Granite.Our server, Carol, was very friendly and attentive. The food was very good (I got the prociutto/fig flatbread and my husband got the spinach salad...with added pan seared scallops).More
The atmosphere was lovely. The three ladies order a breakfast special and were very pleased. I ordered a breakfast from the menu. I expected corned beef and potato as a hash rather than grated potato hash brown with minimal beef flavor. I may have misread...the menu. The Bloody Mary’s were yummy. The bottomless mimosas was a hit. Lily did a very fine job as our waitress. Do not expect to be in and out quickly. It was a leisurely brunch. I would certainly again visit Granite State Bar in my future.More
Food was mediocre at best. Overpriced and lacking in flavor. Husband had the duck which was good but the couscous left a lot to be disired. The salad specials of fig, apple and goat cheese was missing the walnuts. Our guest had the pork tenderloin...that was overlooked and dry and was so small in size. Not sure who is paying attention in the kitchen but it clearly needs menu changes. The service was okay for a busy night. The restaurant ambiance was pleasing.More
Located on the main floor of The Centennial Hotel, this restaurant is as classy as the hotel that houses it. The menu, while short, is well thought out. There are limited vegetarian options but there is at least one entree at each mealtime for non-meat-eaters....The French toast is particularly good. Although the menu lists it as "raisin French toast," the raisins are a topping, not baked into the bread. If you're not a fan of raisins, just as for the dish without.
A note to anyone reserving via Open Table: there is a glitch with the morning/breakfast reservations. The kitchen closes at 10 am most mornings, yet the online system lets you reserve a table at 10. If you want to actually eat, you should make your reservation for before 9:30 am.
The staff are friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is also very cozy. This is a good choice for anyone looking for an upscale feel in Concord.More
My mom's favorite haunt is the Granite Grill so occasionally I meet up with her at the bar. All the bartenders there are nice but, Crawford is exceptional! Witty, charming, and mindful of your beverage!
You can get the full restaurant menu at the bar...or there is a bar menu. Many seasonal choices and some great soups. One of the few restaurants where brocollini is a regular feature. Mom likes the fact that she can get half portions. I really liked the hamburger on brioche bun--condiments on the side! Great aioli!More
Excellent service and food ... I would definitely recommend, and would go back. Prices were a little high, but totally worth it! Crawford, the bartender, knows his stuff, and makes an excellent Bloody Mary! I had the scallops, which were excellent - my friend had...the pork, which she said was great as well.More
I love date nights. I was looking forward to dinner and our reservation at the Granite, but was left underwhelmed.
The pros? The bread they offer the table was amazing. A focaccia filled with feta and tomato, so delicious! I ordered the duck, and while...the couscous was not good the rest of the plate was tasty.
The cons? I ordered a Manhattan. Not knowing they had a “special” Manhattan on the menu for $16 I ordered a normal one with a lesser alcohol and realized only when the bill came was still charged $16. I would have appreciated the suggestion of the special.
Also they offer half portions of some meals. My date ordered a full portion and received a plate so small he had to ask if it was mistakenly the half size. For $30 a meal you should not leave a restaurant still hungry.
My final complaint, date night is a time to enjoy a relaxing dinner. Even though we told the waiter we were looking forward to that the food was brought out within 15 minutes of being seated. I don’t know about you but a nice dinner out shouldn’t be wrapped up in less than an hour.
Overall not worth the price. If you want a good drink every time go to O’s. If you want a quality date night dinner make a reservation at Angelina’s. We might try this place again but there will be some considerable time that passes beforehand.More
