    Customer service is still top notch !! The wait staff has changed over the years, but the new young people are well trained and very courteous. The rack of lamb was just a “tad” undercooked for medium, but still was delicious . All the other food was excellent. The martini I ordered was good, but I would say again just a “tad” too much vodka. It was pretty strong. I could have pointed these things out at the time and they would have most happily and quickly replaced, but in my mind they didn’t come to the level of complaint. These exceptions did not diminish the overall experience and we enjoyed everything. The new owners seem like they are very dedicated to continuing success. I highly recommend Lannings and hope they stay around for many more years.

    Lanning’s is our favorite weekly stop. We can never pass on the escargot and our kids have been eating it for years. Don’t miss out on an onion roll to dip in the amazing garlic butter. We had the special 50 day aged NY strip last night and we hope it becomes a menu regular. It was simple the best!

    Overall a very. nice dinner last night. My husband tried their meat special, some dry aged strip, very good he said. I had the salmon and was very pleased with the quality of fish. Ambiance was nice and romantic, they even gave me a rose for my anniversary.

    We have been going to Lanning’s for years and have seen a steady decline for the value. (When we first started going there the salad was included with a lazy Susan to add your selection of blue cheese, cheese, olives, bacon bits. The baked potato came with your dinner with a lazy Susan with sour cream, butter, cheese, and bacon bits. After dinner a tray of fruit for you to select from, followed by a pastry tray. All was included in the dinner cost.) Today, everything is ala carte, except the potato. Along with the potato was a tray of small amounts of sour cream, bacon, and cheese (maybe 1 1/2-2 Tbsp of each). The “butter” is unfortunately the whipped variety, not real butter. The salad had more olives than lettuce, watered down blue cheese dressing, lettuce that had seen better days. The rolls were of the bakery standard. My filet and my husband’s strip steak were cooked correctly, but the seasoning was not the original Lanning’s. The consistency was watery soy sauce, with an underlying vinegar taste rather than the painted on original version which was thicker more of a soy sauce/Worcestershire sauce. The steak was sitting in a pile of watery sauce. The temperature of the food was warm, including the potato. Our appetizers: glazed pork belly and escargot, were cooked correctly and were okay. The presentation of the escargot was dull, sitting in a metal escargot plate with baked on residue from prior servings, and in a gravy like sauce. The waiter and bus people were overly attentive. Overall this was not a “fine” dining experience of past years. I expect to pay a fairly steep price for a great dining experience, but not for a mediocre one, which this was. I think there is a lot to be said for older, more experienced wait staff. The young people tried hard, but have been insufficiently trained. Our bill with the above, plus 1 drink, wine, tip-$295 ($10.50 surcharge included). We will not return.

    Food quality at Lanning’s continues to be far superior to anyone else in town. The oysters Rockefeller is amazing as is the pork belly. The new lounge liquor selection and the wine list rivals a large city. Thanks for continuing to provide Akron with a fine dining option.

    Lannings is a special experience. The welcome and service was phenomenal. I felt like I was friends with the staff when we left. The specialty cocktails to die for. The dining room pristine and atmosphere perfect for our Anniversary. There was music coming from the bar which added ambiance. However, The food was average overall. Though I would like inject the blissful taste of the crab bisque straight to my taste buds, I found some small shell pieces, slivers really, which marred the experience. The rolls were tasty, and the green beans, as I like them, roasted with a little char to bring out the earthy flavor. However the shrimp was overcooked and I found a vein was left on the edge of one where it’s split to remove the vein. The scallops had a crust as they should and were tender enough to split with a fork. Unfortunately, more than once I had that gritty sand feeling like they were not cleaned well enough. The complimentary cheesecake from a local bakery was a lovely touch. Overall a good experience but at those prices, I may have to find a restaurant who handles seafood better.

    Excellent anniversary meal. Too long a wait for server to appear. Noise level very high. Extra place settings and glasses were not removed until requested. This should have been done immediately. Restaurant retains its high quality of food and drink but service has definitely declined. Appreciated the attention of the new owner and the complimentary dessert at the close of the meal. A fine destination restaurant for a special occasion celebration, but our return won’t be immediate because of the above critique.

    Not many places around the Akron or Cleveland area you can get true Japanese A5 Wagyu. I can't come to Lanning's without starting with the appetizer portion. Worth the splurge! As always Dusty and the team do an excellent job and the entertainment in the lounge is fabulous. Can't wait to see the new renovations they are planning in the dining room!

    Final tribute to mother that recently passed at 101 yrs of age.. as a long term resident of Medina, she frequented Lannings for over 45 years, always table5. Made reservations, and was able to secure table five, had a flute of champagne at a sitting for her, and Mannings had a rose for her. Thank you Lannings for a very special and memorable evening. Dinner meal of course was fabulous.

    We have dined here twice now and both times it's been outstanding, I marked the noise level as moderate but I think that was a fluke, the party next to us was very happy and one gentleman had a very distinct and gregarious laugh. They were having a grand time, so, who can complain. Our experience was wonderful, we both had a Salad with our meals, that dressing was one of the top 5 I've had in my life. Everything from the servers to the atmosphere here are great, the cozy feel and exceptional food make this a great spot for Akron, it would easily fit in Dallas, Chicago, or New York, it's just great.

    We had a wonderful business dinner at Lannings last evening. Several of our staff were from out of town and raved about the service and quality. They told us it was the best steak they ever had and were really impressed by our pick for dinner. Our server Jabari did an excellent job and was extremely professional and polished. You can tell everyone really cares here.

    Seemed like a pretty quiet Monday night which we really preferred as we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. We were engaged at this restaurant and come back every year to celebrate our anniversaries. Lots of changes over the years and we are still proud to eat here and the food and quality of service has just continued to get better with age...hopefully they say the same about us! LOL. Thank you all for a nice evening.

Excellent entrance and welcome (most restaurants miss that critical aspect), the bar staff is second to none, our requested table was ready right on time, the food and service continues to be the best in the Akron area! I believe the ‘owner’s presence’ and attention is a key factor in the success of this great Akron landmark and dining experience!
