We went to Nana's for a combined birthday and Valentine's Day outing. The food was delish! We had a salad, main course (rib eye and gnocchi) and dessert. It was a special, romantic evening, and we went home ready to relax. We had never been to the restaurant before, but we will go back again!

My elderly aunt and uncle were visiting from NYC so we took them to Nana’s for dinner. We had a lovely meal, good food and great service. A bit pricey, but on the whole a wonderful meal.

Waiter for our table was friendly and knew about the menu. Food was exceptionally good. My wife had the Duck and I had Monkfish. Both were done to perfection. The ambiance is sedate and conducive to conversation - something missing from other restaurants with otherwise equally commendable amenities. We don't usually spend that much dining out, but for the quality of food, and for special occasions, Nana's is more than worth it.

Tuna Tartar appetizer outstanding.

Pan seared NC Black Bass with Artichoke Confit was
Excellent.

Roasted Rack of Lamb also excellent

For desert we split the “Banoffee “ Tartlet. To die for.

Nana’s never disappoints. Another great meal, looking forward to coming back soon and having the tasting menu. We went in the night before Valentine’s Day and had an excellent meal of soup and pasta to start and lamb and fish for entrees. All excellent. Desserts and service every bit as good too!

Ordered a cocktail before I ordered food. The waiter never brought it until after the meal showed up. The food was not very tasty to warrant the pricing... in my opinion.

I ordered steak & it was very good. My husband ordered chicken & he said it was just ok.

Nothing special although a lot of my colleagues rave about this place.
