My steak came out cold, our server mis-identified the cheeses; but the beverages, ambience, other waitstaff, and overall experience were between very good and outstanding.

Exceptionally delicious food. Service was attentive, with a little room for improvement on offering more drinks. Two in our party are vegetarians and really enjoyed the creative and delicious vegetarian options. Lovely atmosphere. We were there on a quiet evening so it did not have the vibrant feel that I expect it offers on a Friday or Saturday evening.

Food was good and interesting. Service started out with an attentive server and then she seemed to have gone on break about midway through dining (we never saw her again). Other servers were slow to check on us and when they did they wouldn’t really listen. For example, they asked if we needed to pay (we hadn’t paid yet and said as much) but then said something along the lines of “oh you’re all set then.” (???) Seems like they just heard what they wanted to hear/were expecting to hear.

Everything was great. The food was delicious. The rutabaga perogis are worth ordering two portions. The wine was good. Service was good, then switched servers and never really saw the other server which was unfortunate. There was a lady manager there who was phenomenal. I watched her really take over and do the steps of service for our table because she knew the server was busy and our entree round was about to hit the table. Little things like that go a long way and shows they care. She really cared about our experience and that made up for everything else. Drinks were quick and we left happy. Will be going back soon.

We were eating with a friend who has some dietary restrictions due to her health and the waiter kept saying we could not alter menu items. She couldn't eat much. If food is being made fresh, it's hard to understand why certain things in a dish couldn't b omitted. The waiter just seemed extremely unwilling to accommodate and a bit aloof. We spent almost $300 on dinner for three but you aren't willing to alter things so that we can enjoy them. That attitude makes no sense to me.

The wine was amazing. The service was very lackluster. The server seemed as if he didn’t care for us to be there. The short rib sliders were supposed to be crunchy. They were crunchy and dry. The pierogis were ok. The layering of flavors were off to me. If something was sweet and needed citrus or spice, it never showed up. A side note is the Brussels sprouts were amazing. Sprouts exhibited a great mix of salty and sweet. We can get great wine anywhere in the city so a return is unlikely.

This is as fun place, and the food is very good. Our only concern (we are "seniors") is that the noise level is pretty high. The portraits of the Presidents on the wall are great.

Ana has a great location with a spectacular view. A group of six ate there on Saturday for lunch. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately the great view and service couldn’t overcome the sub-par food. I had the kale salad (which was bitter) with chicken breadth. The chicken was dry, over cooked and flavorless. Another one of our group had the omelet, which was also dry and bland. Breakfast sandwiches were decent. Even the mixed drinks weren’t good — overpowering spice flavors without subtlety.

Overpriced, especially for restaurant week. The win is incredibly overpriced. If you had good wines at a good price, so many more people would come to your place.

Was a really nice ambiance, we really enjoyed our restaurant week experience there ($35 for appetizer, entree desert +$30 for wine pairing) it was a really good deal for the amount of food and wine we received. Only complaint was the service was rushed, we didn't feel like we were being cleared out at the end of the meal but the courses came out too quickly, barely having time to finish your last bite before the next course arrived.

We went for restaurant week and did not have a great meal. The service was friendly and the cocktails were great. But everything about the food was sad—odd flavors and uninspiring technique. The desserts were cold and tasted like they’d been prepared that morning and left out to get stale.

My friends and I went to Ana on a Thursday evening for dinner. It was pleasantly full and not noisy. We ordered drinks, a wine flight and the boozy cider option (rave reviews from my friends) and spent most of the night talking about the presidential portraits on the wall. Those were awesome and very entertaining! The food was very good too, especially their donut dessert. Would definitely recommend.
