Food was excellent but something definitely went wrong with the service portion . Ordered drinks and app, table that was seated after us and serviced by same waiter was provided with drinks and apps before us ; oh our appetizer was completely forgotten about btw. Bread? Nope that was brought to the table with our meals!!! Really? High end place but they need to take care of that ! Del frisco , capital grille etc ... wouldn’t have happened their

I've been to Pellana's several times and I always have a great meal, drinks, etc. Service is very good as well. My only minor complaint is that I wish the waiter/waitress would introduce themselves when they first come to the table. Every time I've gone, I notice that they do not introduce themselves and I think it's very personable, especially at a fine dining restaurant

I would recommend Pellana's even though this last visit wasn't so wonderful. I have been there several times and it's always been great. This last visit was disappointing due to fairly slow/unattentive service and the cramped dining room, but the food continues to be amazing!

I am very pleased with Pellana. They went out of their way to accommodate us as I raised my group number from 4 to 5. We celebrated my husband’s birthday and we were given a delicious dessert! The food was delicious! The service was impeccable! All in all, I would not hesitate to return to Pellana. I would recommend Pellana to anyone!

We usually love it here. My filet mignonette was under cooked but not enough to send it back
My opinion soup was very bland and the cheese was so gooey I could not get it off spoon.
My husbands scallops were not crispy.
Did not stay for coffee
The people next to us returned their food and did not ask for any replacement.
Very very surprised

Our waiter basically ignored us when we choose not to have a full bottle of wine or an appetizer. He never even asked us if we wanted another glass or how our food was. Very obvious ignoring and not what I would expect from such a fine establishment.

Very nice setting, somewhat reminiscent of Locke Ober with dark paneling and minimal outside light creating a warm, rich atmosphere and by the outstanding service. Our Filets were perfectly cooked and deliciously complemented by toppings and sides. The addition of pan seared scallops on a bed of risotto rounded out an amazing culinary evening.

This was our second time at Pellana and we weren’t disappointed. It was my wife’s birthday and they were able to sit us in a booth that she wanted to sit in that was recommended to her. The cocktails were great and the food was amazing. Definitely recommend.

Their prices show a high end restaurant however the clients dress like it’s the 99 Restaurant. My wife’s steak was over cooked and I don’t think my steak was the right cut . Mine was also fairly tough with fat and grizzle .

I had only heard good things about restaurant but had never tried. It turned out to be better than I expected. It is pricey. Dinner for 2 was about $ 250 with tip. It was my husband’s birthday so cost was fine. Reservations a must.

Pellana is a fine restaurant. Although it is an extremely expensive meal, it is worth the cost for that special occasion.
I recently went and had the following foods:
Prime rib, bone in. It was quite fatty but the taste was excellent. Not a good value at $55 or more.
Filet Mignon with lobster on top. Excellent taste. A bit small for the value but worth it.
White asparagus. Very tasty.
Blue cheeses mashed potato. The best I’ve ever had.
Lemmon cake. Excellent and good size portion.
Value: as I stated, the prime rib is not worth the value.
The filet is worth the value.

Conclusions: opt for the steaks and stay away from the prime rib. The service is excellent. Carlyn is a great server. With three drinks our meal was approximately $238. I think it is a bit over priced but the food is excellent overall.
I recommend Pellana for a special occasion.

Pellana is one of my favorite restaurants - it never disappoints. We were there celebrating my husband's birthday with 2 other couples and everyone loved the food. The wine was fantastic, the food was perfectly prepared, cooked as ordered, and delicious. I have recommended this restaurant many times and will continue to do so.

Filet mignon and potato au gratin were excellent. Husband liked the clam chowder. Stick to wine or a simple cocktail as one from the specials menu was awful. Nice ambience. Sat in lounge. Bar was nice. Will return. Bread basket has nuts so if you are allergic be careful.

Awesome dinner experience. Thanks to Jason, our server. Wonderful food, well made drinks and over all special experience made for a nice evening. This is an expensive restaurant but worth it for special times.

I gave only a moderate rating for noise because we had to change tables when we first got there because a speaker was directly over my head and the music was making me crazy. New table was very quiet.

Had a really nice evening with may sister who was in town. Requested a quiet table and was very happy with how we were accommodated in that regard. Service was excellent. Food hot, well prepared, attractively presented and delicious. It is a little pricey, but I felt like we got what we paid for. I would recommend for a special occasion and plan to go back.

Pellana is a gem. The interior is classic elegance. Deep wood paneling, magnificent bar area and tables set far enough apart to create a smooth atmosphere. We had shrimp cocktail and the filet combinations and both were cooked to perfection. The service was attentive and fast, but never rushed. Despite the 30 minute drive from our house, we intend on making this our go-to restaurant.
