Reservations a must. Nice setting with different rooms. Service was excellent. Our server Meredith was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. The wine list is very extensive but not intimidating. Our group had the beef tartar, rosuto, pork chop,fois gras, and a...More

Nana's is a small restaurant, so be sure to make reservations early. The food and service are both remarkable. I advise you to plan your next important celebration at Nana's today!!! I can't wait to return!!

Nanas has long been the best restaurant in the area for a fine meal, but we went last week and sat in the bar area and had a great casual dinner. We will definitely come back again when it isn't a big occasion!

Was there on a business dinner with spouses. Have eaten there multiple times before and food and service is always excellent. I had the short rib, which is the best I've ever had. Will be back. Keep up the good work

Going to say Again. Always a great meal with fine staff. We have always been so we'll served and always had such good food. We can't say enough good about it. We just always eat more than we should! Also try the special cocktails.

We came here for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. I had chosen this restaurant based on the ranking in Durham but couldn't make myself an idea how it would be by the limited pictures (basically only food). It is not located in the heart of...More

They do have salads. I am sure they would do their very best to accommodate you if you called or asked.

I/we did not have the tasting menu although it was highly recommended. I believe the pricing of the tasting menu is per individual and an additional charge for wine parings.

Don't believe there's a dress code. Business casual would be appropriate.
