Everything was awesome except sitting outside to eat in January just is not that pleasant regardless of heaters or anything else. Would be great if they could bring a couple tables inside spaced apart

My 2nd time there and it was as fabulous as the 1st time. Even though we had to sit outside in The tent on a chilly evening, the food was warm & the service impeccable.

As always, NanaSteak was superb. It is always so nice to sit outside in our wonderful city and feel a part of the NanaSteak family. The servers are always friendly and professional and the food is excellent. Great management team, as well!

They are doing an amazing job of providing excellent food and fantastic service in these crazy quarantine times. The outside dining area has a lovely view, especially at sunset, the tables are spaced at a safe distance, and the heaters are great! NanaSteak has become one of my favorite places to eat in Durham.

Excellent service felt incredibly safe - lovely waitress taking care of us and lots of Covid guidelines applied. Great steaks, good choice of wines and an Irish coffee to finish - thank you for such a fun evening.

NanaSteak has responded to the exigencies of pandemic safety with panache and class. Full outdoors in winter and yet warm and friendly. Food and service remains stellar, while risk is low.

We decided to come here since it seemed really nice and a good date night place. It was great at first, looked beautiful and you could smell the kitchen even from the patio, its currently outdoor seating only and that was fine. But none of the tables on the patio are social distanced. Under the tent they are, but not on the patio. But I was like “that’s okay because they’ll skip tables” but NOPE. Less than 3 minutes from when we were sat, and with almost EVERY other table empty outside apart from ours and one under the tent, they sat a group of 4 at the table right next to us. If i reached my arm out I could’ve wrapped it around a woman I didn’t even know at the other table. Not to mention there was a fire heater between us that was so hot my hair felt like it was burning my scalp while the other side of my body was still cold. We figured “maybe the food is great so we’ll stay” but that failed us too. Our server gave us multiple soda refills before I even took a sip of my drink, so our tiny table was crowded in glasses. For a nice restaurant you would think the servers would know how to pour out of a glass bottle, but ours walked up, put the bottle on its side and glug-glugged it into the cup and then slammed it onto the table which just splashed water all over us, our napkins, and even had tiny puddles on our appetizer plate. Needless to say, we had them cancel our dinner that we’d already ordered and asked for the check straight away. They also tried to charge us for the multiple drinks they had brought that we didn't even touch. Who could possibly drink 7 sodas in 10 minutes?? Maybe we could try again when covid is better and the servers can pour properly. I’ve been a server many times, and I would’ve been embarrassed by that. I also should mention half their staff that I could see seemed to not realize masks go over the nose, not under it. For a nice restaurant, their pictures do them better than their service.

We loved our Anniversary Date at Nana Steak! They took precautions related to COVID, the staff was super nice and attentive, and we had a great time! I couldn't bring myself to rate this particular visit 5.0 due to a cold dish that was sent out... But, as soon as I alerted the staff to it, they promptly fixed it and made it right for me. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful outside seating, warm by the heaters in a tent even though it was 40 degrees outside. We brought a blanket for our laps which we didn't really need, but it was good to have. Great food and a beautiful place to get away safely.

We enjoyed our meal at NanaSteak, as we always have in the past, though we haven’t been as willing to venture out, this year, as we would have liked. We took advantage of unseasonably warm weather to reserve an outdoor table, though the restaurant has done a good job of providing some wind breaks and efficient outdoor heaters, so we would have been very comfortable even if the temperature had dropped, somewhat. The food and service, at NanaSteak, is top notch, and didn’t disappoint. We enjoyed a couple of their signature cocktails, then shared a couple of appetizers, before moving on to main courses. We look forward to the NanaSteak Bolognese, which is almost always available, the Ribs and the Salads. Our main course was a Prime Rib special, and we chose to accompany that with a Priorat, which I highly recommend. We finished off with the Vanilla-Bean Creme Brûlée (perfect, don’t miss out,) and coffee made for a perfect meal.

NanaSteak has always been a favorite of mine! I love what they've done to keep us safe during this pandemic with outdoor dining, socially distanced tables and heaters on cooler evenings. The service is always impeccable and food outstanding. I took some friends there the other night who have never been and they said it was the best steak they'd ever eaten! They ordered the ribeye with mashed potatoes and I had the filet mignon with roasted brussel sprouts and fries! Although it's known to be a steak place they have several other options for vegetarians!

I always love visiting Nana Steak. Graham is always there to get you and make sure you feel at home. The cocktails are always top notch and their wine selection compliments every meal and price level. Dining outside, they made sure we were comfortable and safe. I certainly appreciate every effort they make during COVID times. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Something told me to order the roast chicken instead of steak, and I was NOT disappointed. It was juicy and flavorful and served with two sides--braised red cabbage and goat cheese polenta-- that were so good I wanted to wear them.

Our first visit to NanaSteak did not disappoint! The food was incredible, and the outdoor ambiance at sunset was perfect. They are currently only offering outdoor seating due to COVID. NanaSteak has done a great job of mirroring the elegance of indoor dining. The server and management were very attentive and ensured we had everything we needed for an enjoyable evening. Highly recommend!

We celebrated our anniversary and had an amazing time. We haven't eaten out since March (2020 - pandemic) and not only was the food delicious: filet mignon with waygu fries, brussels and a bearnaise that was the best, along with cirspy miso pork ribs but the service was absolutely top notch. We mentioned it was our anniversary in the reservation and everyone that passed wishes us a happy one. On top of all this, their seating, spacing, and dining setup is distant and feels very very safe. Thank you, Nanasteak!!
