Delicious food and fabulous service. We even had our Son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. They have a private dining area that seats about 25 people. They offer menus for dining, it's not just fish or chicken. Wonderful experience!!!

My favorite restaurant in Durham over many years. Can't believe it closed and now has reopened! The standard both for food and service. Exceptional and consistent fine dining experience. The food is the show but they do all things well.

Mouth watering, delicious food with excellent service! I had the chicken breast and confit which was superbly cooked. My husband had the quail also superbly cooked. We ended the night with creme brulee which was tubular🤤 We will be back to try the risotto! Only downfall for us was having to park on the street.

Reopened and still very good. Their usually stellar service was somewhat off, taking some time between orders and not having a great idea about the menu. Food was still amazing, along with the pairing of drinks.

As always, just as it was for the 24 years we've been going, our recent dining experience was superb. Scott Howell's simply a magical Chef!

So happy that Nana's is back! Called at 8 PM on Tuesday for a party of 20+ for the next evening. The owner, Scott, called me back that night and made arrangements for a great birthday dinner for my colleague. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. Will be scheduling more dinners at Nana's.

Great place to celebrate a special event. Relaxing with great service. Food and drinks were delicious. Lamb, salmon, flounder and steak were ordered and all were very pleased. Two thumbs up!

We went there in the evening during the Thanksgiving long weekend with our out of state visitors. The food was very good as it had always been in the past. However, the service left a lot to be desired. For starters, we waited for about 15' -along about 5 to 7 other people, in the crowded front area until our table was ready, in spite of arriving exactly at our reserved time. Then, the waiter was nowhere to be seen for a while, and the bread server practically threw the pieces on our plates, even without asking for our choice. Once we ordered, half of the table's entrees came a few minutes later than the other half. Lastly, again the server disappeared prior to dessert and again prior to bringing the bill. We realize that this was around Thanksgiving, but the restaurant was busy, rather than over crowded. They need to implement a better flow and increased organization. At this price point, if they can't handle this number of parties in an organized fashion, then they could convey a better image by not taking as many reservations to begin with....

We really enjoyed this little hidden gem that only happens to be 8 minutes from our house! It is fine dining at a decent price. My brother and I shared a salad which had delicious caramelized onion dressing on it. I then got the salmon for my meal which was cooked to perfection! The focaccia bread that they bring around is also very tasty and hard to stop eating.

One of the best dining experiences I've ever had! We found this place on a "best of" list our first night in Durham - so glad we did! Ended up going back for a second time before our trip was over. The servers were friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The food was presented beautifully, and tasted even better. The menu changes seasonally, but the cast iron chicken is apparently a year-round staple. Hands down the best chicken I've ever had. You MUST dine here if you're in Durham.
