My wife and I celebrated our 43 rd Wedding Anniversary at Pellana’s on Saturday night. Our waiter Zorba was terrific. Asked us when we sat down if it was a special occasion and we told him. He was very attentive and very informative. The scallops wrapped in bacon with apricot sauce was delicious.
24 oz bone in Rib eye was to die for. We have eaten here many times and plan to keep coming back. 5 Stars!!!!!

Recommended by friends and colleagues, it did not disappoint. Compared to city steakhouses, the food was extraordinary. Service was impeccably forthcoming with requests, and information on the menu since it was our first time.
Partner was happy with very well cooked New York sirloin steak topped with Great Hill blue cheese, and my Kurobuta porkchop with apples and golden sultanas was delectable. We enjoyed your belated Valentine's dinner, cozily sitting by the fireplace. We will be back sooner than later.

Pellana is just wonderful. My husband and I go several times during the year. I was so impressed that they had a profile on file for us, so knew exactly where our seating preference was. We have always had outstanding service here. However, we had a waitress at first who was abrupt, seemed bothered with questions and was not around enough to order another drink. This has never happened to us. We didn’t feel very welcome at all. I spoke with a manager and asked for a new wait person. He was absolutely wonderful. His name was either Andreas or Antonio. He was sweet, professional, had a great sense of humor and very attentive. Needless to say, he was tipped extremely well! We got the tomahawk and split it, with added baked stuffed shrimp and side of mac and cheese. The food was cooked perfectly and was incredibly delicious! Another outstanding evening at Pellana! We will continue to go back!

This was not our best meal there. I know it is a very busy night. The main course for both of us was very good. My wedge salad was the whole bottom half of the iceberg- core and yellow part. It was not very edible. I ate the top part but it was a mess. The lobster Mac n cheese was bland, the pasta over cooked and the lobster was tasteless.
I actually have had this identical meal here before so I know what it should have been like.
The atmosphere and waitstaff are wonderful. This is a very expensive night out for us so it was a disappointment.
Did we complain? No. We chalked it up to a busy night. I also assumed the kitchen staff were inexperienced.
We kept hearing about 300;take-out orders and the kitchen was busy. I suspect that could’ve played a part.

We came as a recommendation from a friend of ours. We wanted a good steak and are unfamiliar with the area. Let me tell you we were in no way disappointed! This was an experience, everything a great meal should be. The server was amazing and spot on with his recommendations. We started the evening with some amazing bacon wrapped scallops in a apricot chutney. Continued with some of the best French onion soup I think I have ever had in my life. For the main course I had the Kona Coffee crusted ribeye served with an aged black garlic butter and she had the filet and shrimp in a garlic butter and both we’re absolutely incredible. I cannot say enough about this place and we most certainly will return.
