                                                The food was excellent (our favorite - the ribs appetizer) and the service impeccable.

                                                We have been to Nanasteak previously prior to a show at DPAC. Reservation was for 5:45, with showtime at 7:00. We were about 15 minutes early. Our drinks arrived promptly, and we placed our order. Appetizers were on time. However, our entrees (Prime rib and vegetarian plate) had not arrived by 6:30. Noting that restaurant was fairly busy, but not full, we asked our waiter to check on our order. He checked with kitchen, and our orders arrived in about 10 more minutes. He indicated that kitchen had been "backed up". He apologized, and they gave us a complimentary dessert. Quality of the food was, as always, superb. We will be back.

                                                Brian was our server and was awesome. Knew the menu in and out, and was able to give great recommendations. The food was amazing - maybe the best steak I ever had. Will definitely recommend to friends as well as be back myself. Great job!

                                                This was our first visit to NanaSteak and we were very happy with the overall experience. The food was exceptional, especially the Filet Mignon with mushrooms added and the chocolate cake.

                                                We went with another couple. We were all excited to try the food. Overall nothing special. The strip was very fatty. The potato too salty. The French fries good but the sauce was awful. I don’t think I will be returning.

                                                The food was generally not what you expect for the price. Steak was lukewarm.

                                                The food is always excellent at Nana steak. I love the outdoor seating option. Anytime there is a special occasion to celebrate, I always book this restaurant. The service is always excellent; servers are very attentive and you rarely have to ask for anything. All the food is superb also. Although the food is priced higher, I do feel it is worth the ambulance, setting, and service.

                                                Helpful staff, wonderful service. Food was good, not amazing. I was expecting more from all the good reviews, but thought it average. Perhaps I ordered the wrong things. Side note, ordered banana pudding for dessert and basically got a mason jar full of whipped cream and crumbles. It was not traditional banana pudding as one would expect. When I was discussing it with my table mates, the lady at the next table chimed in that she, too, had the same opinion and was disappointed by the lack of actual banana pudding in the dessert. Upon my complaint, and seeing that I didn’t eat it, the staff kindly took it off my bill. I will try this restaurant again and order something different. So far, aside from the excellent service, I didn’t find it living up to its reputation.

                                                There was a very long hair in my food. The wait staff took my meal back right away, but offered no apology or sense of urgency to get my meal out. My side dishes got cold and I ended up having to wait 1 hour and 45 minutes before finally being able to eat my dinner. The rest of my party had already finished their meals when I got mine. The staff was not empathetic. No manager came to speak with me and no aspect of the meal was not comped.

                                                We came here to celebrate my husbands birthday and everything was delicious. We got the pork ribs to start, a prime rib and NY strip both cooked medium rare, and a mountain of the beef tallow French fries. The sides are certainly shareable! A great dinner all together, and well worth it!

                                                We went prior to a show at the DPAC and the food was amazing! I have always wanted to try Nana’s and was so happy that we did. Great food and value. Can’t wait to go back.

                                                Outstanding food and drinks. Comparable to 5-star quality in our opinion. The only drawback was that service was extremely slow, but we recognize that staffing is tough right now. It took about 1hr from the time we ordered to when the main course was received. Plan ahead in that regard. Servers were fantastic and again, quality of food made it worth the wait.

                                                Food was magnificent and service was A+. I ordered a filet medium and when it came slightly overcooked, they were insistent on replacing and had my new, perfectly prepared steak delivered to the table in under 5 minutes. The chef even came out to make sure I was happy.

                                                Collard greens too sweet, not good southern collards like we know. Steak not superb just okay, not worth the $$. Salad was good but overpriced. Only offered ice cream for birthday, they should give the brulee'.

                                                Our party of 4 had steak, salmon & pork chop - all excellent. French fries are crazy good. We had banana pudding, mango sorbet, vanilla/vanilla cake - all so good! A terrific operation with terrific management - I say so because every time we go everything goes smoothly & timely no matter how busy they are.
