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.
A very special dinner for my son’s 21st bday, Pellana sat us at a nice table and, thankfully, did not rush the meal.
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.
excellent food and service will be going back 4 bar
Celebrated my son’s 21st birthday at Pellana on January 12 Saturday night! Everything about Pellana’s is always perfect. I love this Prime steakhouse better than some best known in Boston. Fantastic food, fabulous service and a memorable birthday celebration for my son. To Brian our server, thank you so much for helping to make my only child’s 21st birthday grand!! Everything about our dining experience was flawless!!!
Excellent food and service. Beautiful ambiance. Highly recommend for a couples night out, nice family dinner or any special event!
Love this restaurant was not thrilled to be seated in the middle room center to much noise as we were celebrating my 94 year old Moms Birthday!She could not hear a thing and I felt very badly for her.Still always a big fan of this place but let’s update the sides so boating and gluten free bread also.Something sweet without wheat is local and they have amazing options.....gotta keep up with competition The Bancroft is much better with Acomadating gluten free people!
Best meal, consistantly
I have been visiting Pallana's for years.
First time our waiter did not do a good job
Had to ask our busboy to find our waiter, one of my guests had to ask a waiter passing our table for help .
Awesome!!! Cooked to perfection.
Great meal great service, loved the ambiance
Pellana never disappoints. The food was fabulous as always, service was very good and the atmosphere is warm and cozy, perfect for a cold winter night.
Scallops over risotto, the best risotto I've ever had... my husband got the chicken and loved every bite.
We got a piece of chocolate cake to take home and it was okay, didn't have the moist decadent flavor I was expecting, it tasted a bit too bakery like.
Overall another great experience.
One of the best steak houses in the Boston - Greater Boston area. Expensive but good value for what you get (these days.) Service is adequate but average compared to the other premier steak houses around. Sufficient parking. Nice ambience inside the restaurant although located in a busy commercial area.
Was a little disappointed. Menu had changed and website had not been updated. Popovers cold and soggy. When I asked the waiter what varietals were in the red blend, he said I’d have to look on line. Veal chop was awesome.
Amazing food and drinks, and the atmosphere was so cozy and inviting. We’ve been several times before and have never been disappointed. It’s a bit pricey so we can’t go often but it makes special occasions that much better.
Everything was excellent little kid running around the restaurant climbing around everywhere very disturbing when spending $500 for dinner
We’ve always loved Pellana and go once or twice a year. A couple of complaints this time made the experience less than desirable however. We were seated at a table that was half in an alcove and half in the aisle, making us feel as if the waiters had to walk around us to get where they were going. Secondly, the waiter “didn’t know we had been seated” and so we were left to wait for 10 minutes before we were asked if we wanted a drink. Lastly, we told the busboy we wanted to wrap our leftovers yet he stacked our plates on top of one another when clearing the table. Overall not a very good experience. On the upside the food was as delicious as always.
Everything was perfect
This was a quality dining experience for very special occasions and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The food was exceptional and the ambiance and service made it an enjoyable experience. We'll be back.
Have been to Pellana's on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed the food and waitstaff. Have had Karla on most of those occasions and she is so personable, accommodating, friendly, efficient and just an overall joy to have as our waitress. I would highly recommend this establishment as one of the best on the North Shore. Hidden gem!
Excellent as always! We have been coming here for quite a few years now .
Steak was a little under cooked, party of 4 all ordered medium came out medium rareish. We have eaten here numerous times and has always been great.
Excellent meal. The swordfish was amazing. Nice wine selection. A “must” repeat.
Great food but a little pricey.
Food was amazing!!!!
Will definitely be back soon!!!!
The food was good but very expensive. If you could deliver
better value, that would be excellent.
Everything from the food, to the atmosphere, to the service was amazing. We’re big fans of the Capital Grille and Abe & Louie’s, but this might be our new romantic dinner destination.
Service was great, ambiance was stellar and food was on point as usual. Never have had a bad meal at this place.
Great food, very nice ambiance. We were there for holiday dinner with friends. We enjoyed having time for conversations without been rushed . Service was very attending and polite. We have been coming to this restaurant for several past years and never been dissolved.
Once again our dinner at Pellana's was fabulous. I had the special Surf and Turf with a Bone in Filet and bacon wrapped sea scallops and it was excellent. everyone in our party had nothing but good things to say about the food as well as what a great job they did with the expansion and remodeling. Will definitely be back there again as it is the best upscale restaurant on the North Shore.
Fabulous dinner. Oor waiter was tremendous... we have had him several times. It is our favorite restaurant!
This place makes a top notch steak, but is "local" if you live on the North Shore . Atmosphere and decor all reflect the elegance of a high end steak house, which is precisely what Pellana is. I've dined at this place several times, each time leaving very happy and satisfied.
Christmas dinner with friends
Pellana never disappoints. Best steak on the North Shore!
Went for husbands birthday dinner and was completely impressed.
The hostess was overwhelmed when we showed up. When the hostess was ready to seat she took 2 others people at the same time and brought them to their tables with menus. We had 4 people and when we asked where our table was she said over there and never brought menus. It took a long time for a server to come over. When she did we had to ask for menus. She took a long time to bring to menus over and when she did she brought over bread that had pop overs. The pop overs where really cold and she only brought over one butter for 4 people. The server took a very long time to take our drink order and took a long time to bring them over to our table. We all ordered steak and 3 out the 4 were as ordered but one was way under cooked. This was my first time going to this place. Everyone raved about this place and I cannot figure out why. I will never go back and found other places cheaper and much better for food and service. Really disappointed!!!
The wait staff and food were awesome! One of the best filet mignon I’ve ever had and the sides were excellent.
Food and drinks excellent staff was pleasant my only concern was I have a food allergy and after the dish was served I had to ask if it contained nuts and what kind. I fell for an upscale restaurant the waiter should ask if any food allergies.
