Always the BESTWhenever we have a special event, we always come to Nana's. We probably should come more often though as it is the best restaurant in Durham. The menu changes often, but somehow remains consistent. Risotto appetizer is a staple on our table. We tried the local asparagus w/ poached egg this time around as well. Delicious. If Venison is on the menu, get it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodAlways enjoy this restaurant. Food and staff are great! Won't find better risotto anywhere and the fish entrees are always superb.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectTook my wife here for her birthday recently. Everything was excellent - from the bread to the wine, from the Flounder/Gnocchi to the Chocolate Tart. The service was extraordinarily fast as well. Will revisit in the future.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent.The service was excellent. The food was very good, served promptly and very hot. The waiter was very helpful with the wine. We were
from out of town so Nana's was not a familiar restaurant, nevertheless, we felt very comfortable. I chose it based on internet reviews and we were most pleased. If we return to Durham, I hope we can dine there again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I have beenMy husband and I have been to Nana's multiple times. As usual, the food and staff didn't disappoint. Great food, Great service!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNana's is a restaurant thatNana's is a restaurant that is hard to beat on many levels. The food is outstanding. The staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the menu, the ingredients, the food prep and wine list. The ambiance is great. The space itself is beautiful, but in a relaxing way and the Jane Filer art on the walls is perfection. Its also a place that you would feel equally comfortable in a coat and tie, business casual dress or jeans. If you have never been to Nana's and you love food you should dine there as soon as possible.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWill try again.Nice ambiance, very good food but that night the dining area was very noisy. It was difficult to have all involved in the conversation for the 5 sitting at a circular table. This was the first visit in a long time and I don't recall it being this noisy previously.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHonestly, this has to be oneHonestly, this has to be one of the best restaurants I've dined at. The food is amazing.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy the tastingWe always enjoy the tasting menu at Nana's, but this one topped them all. Thanks!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIn my opinion, still the bestIn my opinion, still the best restaurant in Durham. Hard to choose what to order. Everything sounds and is amazing. Best pork dishes in the Triangle.
Great service - wait staff and bar tenders are long term employees and they remember and welcome everyone.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant for a gatheringThe arugula, pear, blue cheese salad was delicious. I had the shrimp risotto without the lonzo, and the appetizer portion was enough for dinner. Went with old friends for a college reunion and it was just a perfect evening!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA great find for two travelersWe were visiting Durham and happened upon Nana's. What a treat! The garlic soup and poached egg over polenta were outstanding. My husband's flounder was very good. We had a great bottle of vino nobile. At the end of the meal we were surprised with a little treat for our 29th anniversary. It was a great find. We'd come again the next time we're in Durham.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI know you cannot ask forI know you cannot ask for a specific table on opentable, especially for a table of 6, but our table was right next to swinging door to kitchen and I had to swing my chair around so I would not constantly be hit by servers. But the food was delicious and service excellent!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceNana's seems more like a neighborhood bistro than an upscale restaurant. The food, however, was very upscale and fabulous. Everyone in our party raved about their particular dishes. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, personable and helpful. All in all, our best experience when visiting Durham.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNanas continues to impressNanas continues to impress and remains one of my favorite restaurants in the Triangle. The reason for our visit was an anniversary celebration and we weren't disappointed. While we didn't indulge this time the chefs tasting menu at $50 is a true bargain, just go hungry.
Whatever rissoto is being offered is always another great choice. We enjoyed two seafood dishes on this visit, both were exceptional. If you're looking for a great meal, at what I consider reasonable prices, this is the place.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMYou must eat at Nana'sAlways a treat to be able to enjoy Scott and his magnificent staff's offerings. The flounder was tender and perfectly seasoned. The surprise was how tasty the salad greens with buttermilk and Maytag blue cheese dressing was. The portion seemed more sized like an entree. The prices are excellent for what I think is some the finest food in the South.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our wedding anniversaryIt was our wedding anniversary dinner. Nana's restaurant congratulate us when we got to our table and gave us a moni dessert plate with 2 mini-candles. The food was excellent.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommended by a local foodie.

Outstanding food and service. Several entree choices.
In house pastry chef and desserts were excellent.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service is great. AndThe service is great. And the food was well prepared. I had pear salad and succulent chicken. They were both delicious and savory. The rest of the menu was somewhat pretentious. If you like veal, pork and fishy fish, then this menu is for you. I would have liked to have seen more veggie options, perhaps a scallop dish, or maybe a creative chicken dish.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been going to Nana'sWe've been going to Nana's for quite a while and it is always a gem.

Would recommend to anybody in or traveling to Durham.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe recognize the popularityWe recognize the popularity of Nana's and appreciate the unique menus. Our food and service were excellent, but noise level in the room was high. Most tables are in close proximity to others, so not as private as we would prefer.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly AmazingThis was one of the best meals I have had in a very long time and seeing as I live in New Orleans and dine out often I feel like that is saying a lot! The creativity but simplicity of everything we ordered was just amazing. Also, I had the best two cocktails (St. Fizz and the Nickel Pickle) and have already attempted to make them myself. We even tried to figure out if we could fit in going again on our short trip. The service was just as wonderful as the food. Our server made wonderful recommendations, knowledgeable about the menu and was happy to answer any questions. I know anytime I am in the area I will make a point to dine at Nana's and I recommend others do the same!3/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
