Poor service. sat for 10 minutes until asked about drinks. Messed up our app and then again our side of mac and cheese. For a $300 meal I would expect better.

The food is amazing. The steak was very tasty, we loved the clam casino, one of my favorite. My baked potato was overcooked. It really deserves a 10*

When I made the reservation I indicated that it was for a special occasion, along with noting that a member of my party had a nut allergy. When we gave our name at the time of our reservation, they did not have a table ready in the dining room so they offered us a table in the lounge area, which was fine, but it was disappointing that they did not have a table given that we made a reservation. The staff made no indication that we were there celebrating. Additionally, we were brought out bread with nuts in it, when it was noted in the reservation that there was an allergy. However, the food was delicious.

When I made the reservation I indicted we would be celebrating an anniversary. That was not acknowledged but we did not remind them. Food for most part was excellent- clam chowder, crab cakes, Pellana salad, rib eye, 2 filet Oscar and spec. Filet w/ lazy lobster. Only complaint at table was lobster was over cooked & little chewy. Had spec veg- creamed corn excellent. Got raves for lemon sorbet. Also crime brûlée and 7 layer choc cake. Our waiter Jim was very good at keeping an eye on our table & our needs. Overall, had a great meal & very enjoyable evening.

The food is amazing. I took my mother for her birthday. Our server John was excellent. He was attentive and very accommodating. We started with the Pellana salad which is my favorite, and split a New York Sirloin, which was cooked to perfection with mushrooms and mashed potatoes as our sides. My cousin had the burger that looked delicious. They also make a fantastic dirty martini, and the wine list is great!

Many suburban steakhouse claim to be Boston quality and simply are not. What you typically find is an Outback quality steak for $60. Pellana truly feels like you are in a high end steakhouse. Great Drinks, Salads, and of course Steaks and sides. And the service is excellent.

Completely disappointing. We LOVE Pellana and have been here for birthdays, anniversaries, date nights, and friend nights for years. Last weekend we had a 7:30 reservation and did not sit until 8:37 (I checked). After one hour of waiting we were given a comp cocktail (after asking), and offered the “excellent” large table in the bar. We declined, then were offered. 4-top for 6 people and Finally a table for 6 in the back. We were told several times that they were waiting for tables etc etc. However, as experienced diners, we Know they overbooked and gave our table to others, didnt have a table available for us for over an hour. Unacceptable at these prices. The hostess then offered a bottle of wine and our appetizers, but waitress failed to mention prime rib special was running low and we were eating entrees at 9:30. A disaster, no matter how good the food eventually was. So disappointing with the service. It will be a while before we are back. Sadly.

Went to Pellana's a few years back with some clients. Decided to check it out for our wedding anniversary dinner tonight. Was not disappointed. Our server Jon was fantastic. The pace of the meal was very relaxed. I almost felt bad that we sat there for so long. I know how important table turnover is.

I can't fault anything about the mains or the sides. I have been to many high end steak houses and I always get the bone in ribeye. The ribeye at Pellana's was sensational. I can't even begin to describe how good it was or how different it was from all of the other high end steakhouses. The char on the outside was probably it.

And someone with great chocolate syrup penmanship wrote Happy Anniversary on our creme brulee charger. Had to be the top creme brulee I have ever had.

My only cons would be the noise level and the dim lighting. But that's just me I suppose. I have hearing issues and my 53 y/o eyes don't work so well. At least the noise is a good excuse to get closer to your lady/man.

Pellana's was outstanding. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding as well. The restaurant is on the pricey side and I would recommend it for special occasions. Entree's rage from $38 and above. Drinks pretty average $10-$15 depending on what you order. They have an extensive wine list as well. We did splurge a little and had the Tomahawk steak. It was $100 but it was excellent and not something I would do on a regular basis. I definitely recommend Pellana's if your looking for a nice restaurant.
