I went to Lana on a food tour of North King Street. We were served gnocchi in a bolognase sauce that was perfection. The chef was very friendly and accommodating.

We went for dinner on a Saturday, and while full, it was still not overly noisy. We were seated promptly, and the drink menu and wine list brought. along with water, immediately. The drink menu is interesting, but the wine list is better. We settled on a Cotes du Rhone, which turned out to be better than expected, and pretty... More

Our server was attentive without being overbearing and we especially liked the fact that we were not rushed. Our courses came out at an excellent pace and the food was exceptional--beautiful presentation,... More

We really enjoyed the night we had dinner at this restaurant. I do remember that it was a bit chilly with the air conditioning though. Their menu is such that anybody can find something of interest here. Really nice meal.

Restaurant looks lovely - on a very secluded side street in the upper King Street section. Nice taste of a seafood soup and then a risotto with braised short ribs and mushrooms. Tasty. Would likely return to try some more items if I was in town.

Large group of us went for dinner after reviewing numerous options for a "nice" dinner out. Warning, the restaurant is small, and they really can't seat groups of more than 4. They have one large table, our group was 8, by the kitchen. Call first if you have a group. Nice wine list, good selection of fish and steaks. Our... More
