Our usual great Pellana's experience was a little off. Firstly, we were seated in the middle of a room with the sun shining in our eyes through a window with translucent blinds. Secondly, the table for 4 was too small. There was not enough room. We were cramped, balancing menu's on our laps. The server tried to help by taking away our flowers. It was so ridiculous, we ended up opening up two of the table leaves, making an oval table. Steaks were ok, but not the quality we were expecting, or previously experienced. My sirloin was cut crooked, so one side was cooked perfectly, while the thicker end was undercooked. Steak was also loaded with gristle. We were celebrating a birthday, and asked the server to bring our dessert with a candle. No candle arrived, no special chocolate the table next to us received. Our $500 meal did not seem at all special. We plan to return, but will give it a rest for a while.

Bar was horrible service last night with only one bar tender and bar back. It took over 15 minutes to put our drink order in and another 15 waiting for it. The man tending was all over the place and definitely had issues working a bar on his own. Because it took over 40 minutes just to get our appetizers, we got our bill and left telling the front desk our experience. Very disappointed and will not go back for the amount of money they charge when the customer does not receive top shelf service.

I was at Pellanas last night with 3 other people and the food wasn't as good as it usually is. I never mind paying premium prices for outstanding food but my steak was a little over cooked and almost tasted freezer burned.
The positive aspects were, Jason who was our waiter and was very attentive and the cocktails were excellent. We will most likely be back but hope they haven't lost their high standards!

Jim, our server, is very experienced and solicitous. Everyone works as a team. Filet mignon here is fabulous, always tender and flavorful. The summer corn dish (may be creamed corn on the menu) is like a lazy man's Mexican street corn. Chocolate cake slice is enormous, and share-worthy. We appreciate the basket of variety breads.

Pellana's is, as always, awesome. The food is phenomenal, the service outstanding and the restaurant exceedingly clean and well managed. We prefer Pellana's over any restaurant in Boston (and I have been to them all.)

We are repeat customers and very disappointed with visit. Steak was $50 plus and we ordered two of them. Both were burnt. Service was ok, not great, as had been previously. Very sub par, ok visit.

I ordered the evening's special, which was the Tomahawk Steak for 2. It was properly cooked (medium rare), but the steak was very tough and filled with gristle. In a past visit I have had the bone-in rib eye, which was wonderful. I think that in the future, I will avoid the nightly specials.

Our server was FANTASTIC and the place is so inviting and comforting. We both ordered our steaks medium, when my husband cut into his it was practically raw still. We waiting for our server to come back and unfortunately had to send his steak back. It was returned properly cooked a short time after. I was slightly disappointed only because you pay so much for a meal there for it to come out completely wrong. I was half way finished with my meal by the time he got his back. No blame on the server, clearly a kitchen error which was fixed, but again the price of the steaks there I would have hoped for it to be cooked correctly the first time.
