    Excellent service as usual here. We went after DPAC performance and were one of the first tables seated but the restaurant filled up shortly after that. Our meals were brought very quickly but we did not feel rushed. The salmon, shrimp/calamari ceviche, pork ribs, and risotto were enjoyed by all.

    Nana's Steak House is a premier destination in Durham NC for those looking for outstanding filet mignon, New York strip, ribeye and speacialty steaks. I found the strip to be outstanding and a good value for $32. They did not offer any optional sauce to accompany the strip; a Bernaise would have been a nice addition. On the other hand, I found the grilled asparagus to be stringy and not very edible for around $12. The Caesar side salad was nicely done, although it was missing some usual ingredients (e.g. anchoves). While our dinner was at 7PM, we were not rushed, and had a pleasant evening through 10:30 PM.

    Have always liked our previous experiences until the last two times which were disappointing. For the cost of the meal, we expect something incredibly memorable and delicious but we found things over salted (potatoes almost not edible due to salt) and vegetables just bland and unseasoned. The filet had a slight barbecue flavor as if it had been cooked on a grill from which some other seasoning was used for a different item. It was not this way prior to COVID so unfortunately likely not returning for a while.

    Nanasteak is a Durham classic! Owners Graham and Brad make sure you feel like you are a special guest. We love them, the incredibly delicious food, and service that is always top notch! We always enjoy pre-theatre meals there before DPAC, but we also love going for “date nights “ and to take special friends there.

    Packed venue with pre theater diners, our wait was short but sat at the bar. Ordered and app then a few minutes later the main which came first. The bartender returned the main to the kitchen and returned with the app. When the main came he comped the food which was not necessary!! We will be back!

    The Host was not very friendly when we first arrived. We were unable to sit in the bar area due to capacity and he did not offer a table/reservation in the main dining room. We got a cocktail elsewhere and made an online reservation ourselves and only waited 20-25 minutes.

    It took > 1 hour to prepare the entrees…turned into a late 3 hour dinner. Maybe the waitress forgot t turn in the ticket? No chance of going back. Very poor experience. Ruined my wife’s birthday.

    As always Nana Steak is a 5 star culinary experience! The staff are friendly and professional. Their steak is high quality and cooked to perfection. If steak is not your thing there are other options. My friend had the shrimp and calamari ceviche and said it was divine! We’ll definitely be back!

    Seated promptly upon arrival, server was attentive and courteous. Kitchen seemed a bit behind the orders, as it took awhile for most tables orders to arrive, no surprise with current labor environment. Food was outstanding, everyone was very pleased with their meals.

    Great food, service….and we know it was a busy night @ DPAC. We had a 6:15 pm reservation, but food wasn’t served until 7:26 pm….which forces us to literally gulp our dinner in order to make the 8:00 pm concert. :(

    The facility and setting was great. Nice location, not too loud inside, and clean. The service was great also (Jared). Attentive and helpful. The food was the biggest knock against Nana. One would think being fairly pricey would equate to high standards but not here. ALL dishes were salty. Not one, not a little. But all of them and a lot. Beef fat fries and charred broccoli were good otherwise. We both got the pork chop and had vastly different experiences. Mine was undercooked to the point where part of it was pink and even red. My wife’s was cooked throughout. But the pickled cabbage on top really drown out the nice thyme seasoning in the chop. That should have been removed or served on the side. Any piece of pork with no vinegar was tasty due to the thyme but those were few and far between. We tried Nana once and that’ll be our last time!

    greeted nicely at the door. seated immediately. menus with seating. server immediately followed with specials and drink order - felt a little rushed so asked for more time, no problem, Dirty Durham Martini - not bad but every martini should have one or three olives, never two, rarely four (Dad advice). this was a 2 olive martini...still pretty good tho'. The Saint Charlotte was excellent. Caesar salads were very good and generous. Ribeye and 6oz Filet were done nicely, well fire charred and flavorful. The fries were a generous heap with béarnaise sauce, very nice and crisp, the collard greens were well prepared and tangy. the creme brûlée was top 2 in Durham. our only negative was the pacing - we felt rushed and I am sure that was not the intent of the staff but we were a little frustrated because we told our server at least twice we were in no hurry and "take your time". $230 and 1 hour later we were out the door, albeit well fed but still, perception of being rushed was present.
