Stopped in for dinner before the show. New to the area and didn’t make reservations so we sat at a high top. The ribeye was unbelievably delicious. Exactly how I want my steak done with the nice char. Together with mushrooms and their sauce made this steak the best steak of my entire life! The beer fat fries are a MUST!!!

DUDE!!!! I did not have high hopes from some reviews I saw about this place but because of the location I’ve decided to book a reservation for dinner none the less. I was there for my ‘Wicked’ birthday dinner. I was shocked. The atmosphere, I’m sooooo glad that I dressed for the occasion. It was an intimate romantic dining experience. Loved the ambiance. The server was knowledgeable and very professional and caring to our needs and happily answered all our questions. Wonderful explanation of the menu and specials. The food, superb to say the least. The proportions were over the top, I’m a fat man so of course it’s only natural that I finished my plate. But that’s not the shocker. My partner and a friend of ours (both skinny minnies) finished every ounce of food too. Nearly licked the plates. This place is one of my date nights for future events in Durham. 10/10 would recommend.

100/10!!! Could not have been better. Wes and Jared were incredible and the service was impeccable. We got the heirloom tomato appetizer, filet mignons, and various sides. Everything was exquisite and the filet was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had (and that’s saying something). The owner also came by and was very very nice. We can’t wait to come back!

My first outing to this restaurant was amazing. Started with the seasonal tomato salad and a watermelon margarita as highly recommended by Dana (my server) and they were delicious. Next had a perfect filet mignon and roasted red potatoes (the potatoes tasted amazing with the sauce that came with the steak… the steak itself didn’t need sauce since it was already tasty as is). And because I’m celebrating my birthday, she brought me ice cream with a candle 🥳 This was a birthday treat for myself and I knocked it out the park 🎉🎉🎉

The service was great. Food was good. Side portions are shareable. It has great atmosphere that can be mature kid friendly.

Top tier !! Lovely place for fresh and flavorful food. I only had a party of three but staff were very attentive to the needs of the table. The waitress did suggest her favorites and most popular dishes after being prompted. The salmon was very flavorful and cooked to perfection at medium. The orzo was prepared nice and did not over power the salmon. The chicken was plated well and tender (not sure if they brine it first ) but the flavor profile was A+. The collard greens at first took me by surprise because of the flavor but to know that brown sugar and apple cider vinegar are used, made it next level. The potatoes were plated nicely and the texture brought the entire plate together. Overall great experience. It was a pleasure to meet Graham and he took the time out the spark a conversation with the table. If you have not tried this restaurant , definitely put it on your list !

Tl;dr It was just fine, but we won’t be back. We went here for our wedding anniversary hoping we would have an amazing dining experience, but it was very average. The food was pretty mediocre for the price. We got the crispy ribs as an appetizer and it was a bit heavy with the salt, but I liked the concept. I got the chicken as an entree and that was a mistake. It was a tiny chicken breast with an even tinier drummette attached. I liked the potato au gratin, but the collard greens were sweet for some reason. I was at least expecting a half chicken. My husband got the prime rib and it was very flavorful, but it would have been even better if they seared it before serving. He got a side of Mac and cheese and it was like soup. The flavor was a bit like truffle oil, but not particularly cheesy. The drinks were nice and strong. We got the brownie for dessert and the brownie was hard and cold when we were expecting it to be warm. Our server was fine, but she was not very personable. She didn’t really try to make conversation with us at all even though it wasn’t too busy when we arrived. Overall, it was fine, but I’m in no rush to visit again.

Spur of the moment decision and what a great one it was!! Our waitress, Sara was one of the best I have ever had! She was intuitive and super personable and made the beginning of our night to “Six” perfect and special! Thank you Sara! Now the food! It was amazing! Perfectly prepared and presented!

My boyfriend and I visited Nanasteak for my birthday. It was absolutely perfect! We had an early reservation but the place filled up quickly. We both got the filet mignon and shared a side of fries, broccoli, and Mac and cheese. We also ordered wine and bread. Everything tasted great! Didn't order dessert because we were so full but our waitress brought out some ice cream with a candle. It was a sweet touch! Parking was free in the deck (make sure you tell any attendant that you are dining) and a close walk. Highly recommend Nanasteak for a nice dinner.
