1st time there. Have wanted to try the restaurant for a while. Not disappointed. Will definitely recommend and return.
It was special evening! Thank you so much!!!
Just one minus - a person (not a server) several times tried to take my dish away when I was eating . I know he did his work but he was too annoying
Although the food and service were very good, there is not a steak that is worth 100.00. Granted it was a ribeye for 2, but still a little too pricey
Went for dinner to celebrate a birthday. It was amazing. Food, service, everything was great.
Another fantastic experience at Pellana. Been going for years and has never lets us down. By far the best steak I’ve ever had. As for service, top shelf and extremely professional.
Always a great experience. Love the food, the service was excellent!! Drawback to going more often. $$$
I come to Pellana because it’s local but tonight they outdid themselves. The new scallops and risotto dish was cooked to perfection. Buttery, silky and the right amount of cheese to the risotto. Service is always high end as usual. James was funny enough to make him endearing and he knew enough about the menu to prompt us to order the specials. My only suggestion would be to up light I was there with my cousin and it was just way to dark for friends or family.
Don't miss this gem for a special occasion or a dinner when you want everything to be perfect. The food is wonderful, and the service great, but mostly, it is otherworldly. It has a private club like atmosphere (in a good way); fresh flowers, dim lamp lighting, quiet and very, very elegant.
it is not cheap; save up and treat yourself to a very special evening. The bar is also amazing with knowledgeable and professional, old-school bartenders, who really know how to make a dring (and a twist!)
Absolutely fantastic food service and drinks! YaaaaaaaaaAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
Food was wonderful. Our waiter was awesome. We loved our table. Our only complaint is the wait. Our reservation was for 8pm. We weren't seated until 8:40. There wasn't a comfortable place to wait. The hostess asked if we would like to order a drink while we waited for our table. We had to wait 30 minutes to order our drinks. They arrived just as we were being seated.
Excellent food, bar and service , the tuna steak is fabulous and bone-in filet. We had a wonderful meal with friends and thank you for making our evening delicious.
The food was great! Our server was super sweet and well-versed; he just seemed to have been assigned a LOT of tables. But we had a delicious dinner and he was great!
Food & service was excellent. Our server - Jon, was exceptional. Only negative was the front desk staff. Not friendly and not at same level as the rest of the experience.
The food was good, I wasn’t crazy about the location of our table, it was half way into a walkway.
The service wasn’t as good as the last time we were there. Not that the service was awful but it was superb the last time. When u spend over $550 u expect superb.
As always, Pellana meets and exceeds all expectations. Our staff at Phil Richard Insurance gave us a romance package which included a couples massage at Maison Estitique in Danvers. They gave it to us cause they know how much we love Pellana and their martinis.
Pellana usually is excellent. This time the night was off. We had to send somebody to the hostess stand to find our server as we were tucked away in the corner and the server did not see us. The waiter offered a butterflied steak to one of the guests which was declined. However the steak came out butterflied. The top of my steak was too charred and actually burnt. I would skip on the gelatinous carrot cake but the the chocolate cake is A plus.
I made a reservation for my boyfriends birthday. I called ahead and ordered a special dessert for him, and they did an excellent job with that. They sat us in a quiet booth for two near the fire place. Our waiter was wonderful and knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. I do not eat meat, my boyfriend loves steak so we were there for him. BUT, there was plenty of seafood options for me and it was delicious! It's pricey, but is good for special occasions!
Amazing Filet Mignon and risotto. I've been here about 5 times now and every meal has been outstanding.
Wonderful service, we had Roberto and Nick, they were great with suggestions and excellent service. It was my friend's birthday and after delicious meals, they brought over a brownie dessert with ice cream.. It topped off a great meal.
It was our Easter dinner but we would go back for any special occasion! The food and drink were amazing, the pacing was perfect - not too fast as it is a high end steakhouse but we never felt like we were waiting either. We even had a baby and even though there is only one high chair (I had an uh oh moment when we walked in) he was more than welcome as were the other children we saw! Such an amazing spot!!
My family and I chose Pellana for our Easter dinner (it was the first time my parents ever celebrated a holiday at a restaurant) based on our excellent prior experiences there. While I have dined there more than two dozen times, each time as good as the next - including my dad's 61st birthday earlier in the month - our Easter dinner was just okay. My parents split a tomahawk chop that was extremely rare and was sent back to bring to the medium rare they had requested. The meat was also really tough and our server instead brought them a filet to share. Everything else was fine, not the usual superb. Our server was excellent, as was the overall service.
Off nights happen to even the best restaurants. I'll be returning and am sure everything will again be superb.
First time there and we loved it
In the past I have really enjoyed some meals here. Saturday night not so much. The waitress seem to forget about us at one point which is pretty unusual for a place like that. We also didn’t receive one of the appetizers we ordered. The biggest issue was my husband sent his prime rib back. Usually it’s very tender and only has some fat around he edges. This piece was fatty through the entire thing and not at all tender. The second piece they brought him was better but not by much.
This seems very unusual, we don’t usually have a problem when we come here but after that we won’t be back for a long time.
Delicious steaks, topflight wine list bring the classic American Steak House to the suburbs.
Recent expansion has added another Bar/Seating area, adding to the ambience.
Understanding the experience is pricey, it is well worth a visit.
We usually do a couple of special occasion visits each year.
Research the expansive wine list on-line prior to going. You can find some value choices and a large stock of expensive, great tasting wines, from several regions.
Had our family Easter dinner here. Phenomenal food and service. Only comment is that the prices are a bit high when compared with similar high-end steakhouses.
Everyone in our party was very satisfied with the food and the service
Had an excellent group office meal recently. From the greeting of the hostesses to ending our meal with mouthwatering desserts, the overall experience couldn't have been better. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions. The entire meal from appetizers and salads to our main courses were prepared perfectly. The quality was impeccable and the portion sizes were perfect. We all shared a couple of desserts as a final treat. The fairly recent renovations/expansion came out great. Has a real nice look and a much larger more interactive bar area. They were also able to keep some more private areas for dining as well. Well done.
We all ordered different cuts of steak and they were all done to perfection. The portions are extremely large and I would recommend splitting your sides with someone else in your party. Gina was wonderful and attentive. Very pricey, not for the faint of heart but overall a great meal and night.
Very nice place. Service is great always is. Food is wonderful
The service was great. The steak was burned! The side orders didn’t taste as expected! Probably, a new way of cooking or recipe?!
Amazing and delicious
Excellent menu. Comparable in quality to the best Boston steak houses, but with bigger, more varied wine list, and lower prices for food and wine. Filet was incredibly tender. Barrel-cut rib steak au piovre was also most tender and flavorful. The baked-stuffed, half lobster add-on was a tasty bargain. The stuffing was buttery and superb. Baked stuffed shrimp add-on was just as memorable. The hard-to-find, Chamonix 2014 pilotage was excellent - a perfect, silky-smooth, South African red and at a quite reasonable bottle price (only about double wine store pricing). The surprise molten brownie and cream with tall lit candle presented on a big plate with "Happy Anniversary" scripted in chocolate on the rim made for a perfect ending to a perfect special event. Bravo Pellana! Job well done. Will most definitely return.
Fantastic night out with friends - great food, drinks and wine!! Our waiter Roberto was phenomenal!!
Been there a several times service was slow for the first time
Our group had good time, Birthday celebration
Very pricey though
Nice meal. Good service
Excellent food. Excellent service!
Quality meal, on point with everything. Went with the family. It's nice to know there's a high end place in the suburbs that's convenient. Steak was cooked perfectly. Wife said the carrot cake was the best she's ever had. Decadent.
I have been several times and the food is always outstanding, the wine list is extensive and the knowledge the staff has is great.
Our first visit to Pellana, and it was as reviewed by others. Off the beaten path a bit, beautiful bar area. The menu and overall variety was excellent. The quality and ambiance were also on par with top notch steakhouses. The only issue we had was one steak came out medium well vs medium rare, but they corrected it quickly.
We will definitely return to Pellana next time we are in the area.
