“Delicious Meal & Very Good Service”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

I had never dined at the Granite before and chose this for a "date night" based on reviews. We were definitely not disappointed and would dine here again. The restaurant is small and there is no real window scenery to speak of but the layout of the tables are apart enough to feel very comfortable and the atmosphere quite nice. The hostess was very friendly and our server (I wish I could remember her name) was excellent. She was able to answer our questions regarding wine and meal choices. The clam chowder was very tasty and more of a broth base than a thick cream. I wish I had ordered the bowl instead of the cup size. The filet mignon was superbly cooked with a great flavor as was the rest of the dish. My boyfriend had the potato crusted Haddock and is was well cooked and very tasty. The banana beignets and ice cream were a yummy finish to a delightful meal. My only comment that would not be very positive is that my meal could have been a bit warmer but my boyfriend's dish seemed to be warm enough. I would recommend the Granite Restaurant for a nice dinner out as long as you plan to spend at least around $75, but the food and service make the price appropriate.

“A perfect meal”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had an excellent meal served by the nicest waitress. My wife was not sure which wine to pick and the waitress brought her samples so she could be sure of her chocie. I had the lamb shank which was prepared with a wine reduction. I needed extra bread in order to soak up all the juices. The meal cost about $100, which was very reasonable for the quality. It was a wonderful way to end our trip to NH.

“solid "very good"”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Solid "good". Given the "in the middle of nowhere" place (Concord) - solid "very good". Tasty food, decent wine list, attentive service (a bit slow), pleasant traditional decor.

We tried chief soup, crabcakes, iron flat steak, lamb with porcine - everything was on par. And "half" portions allow to try more things or save room for dessert.

Make sure to have a reservation. The place was packed on wednesday night.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The menu, service and food were amazing. Do not hesitate to pick this restaurant. It is not inexpensive but every penny is worth it. We ate here on the last night of our trip and the meal was more like an event - every course exceptional quality plus service is not rushed at all. A wonderful meal within the walls of a beautiful New England inn. We had only wished we had stayed here instead of the mediocre hotel we had picked.
