I visited Lana on an impromptu trip to Charleston last weekend. Love the cozy neighborhood feel. Service was outstanding. I ordered the Risotto of the day and it was just OK; others at the table ordered the Basque Chicken, Steak and they were pleased. I would go back for a second chance.
Ate at Lanas for New Years Eve! Food was superb. Festive atmosphere which was somewhat loud but feel that it was because of the holiday. My sons steak was a bit overdone and he returned it. The follow up was quick and the second one was perfect. The pasta dishes were delicious and the service was excellent. Can't wait to go back!
Quiet neighborhood type restaurant. Comfortable booths with seat and back cushions. Laid back dining. Paparadelli Bolognese quite good but the Pork scallopini was incredible, adding almonds, capers and lemon which all arrived piping hot. Delicious seafood tomato based soup. A nice tray of two fresh pâtés completed our experience.
My wife and I joined another couple for the first time. The dumplings with broccoli and the dumplings with mushrooms were very very good. The bolognaise was the best I have ever tasted but the one poor dish was the scallops that were cooked beautifully but were over salted when cooked or when plated. The re-cook was pretty but still a little salt for our taste.
We also very much enjoyed our salads to start the meal as they were unique and lightly dresses. Our waiter was very knowledgeable on both the food and wine.
Great effort was made to correct our one poor dish. We will go back for sure when back in Charleston
I reluctantly give this a 2 for service since our waitstaff was fabulous. But there were apparently staffing issues both in the back and in front and it was out of her control. We waited what seemed like forever (finished two cocktails waiting). I will go again, hopefully it was just an off night during the holidays.
This was our third visit to Lana and it's become one of our favorites, though this visit was a little uneven. The service as always was fabulous, but some of the food was not as good as it has been in the past. The soup du jour (curried carrot) and the vegetable platter were outstanding and well worth going back for. The fish and the risotto of the day were both bland and under-seasoned. Still, we love the neighborhood feel of Lana, and we expect the food will be back up to its usual standards on our next visit!
Lana's was just a couple of blocks from where I was saying in Charleston. It's a great quaint restaurant in the neighborhood. They only had two waiters working and they were kept busy but our waiter was very attentive to the tables he was working. I had their steak frittes and wasn't disappointed.
Service and food was exceptional! Loved this cozy little restaurant! Great date night out!
Excellent restaurant. All 4 of us had different entrees and they were all great. One of our favorite restaurants in the ultimate foodie city.
Lana is one of our "go to" places for date night in Charleston. The food is always spot on and the vegetable plate is outstanding. Great wine list and great service.
