No need to drive into Boston when this place is right in your back yard if you live on the North Shore. Though this Steak House is el a carte', the quality of the steaks are outstanding and worth every penny.

Had business dinner with group here. The ambiance is good, not loud and stylish. Food is good as is the service. No rush, felt comfortable and at ease. However, the prices are high. Being from Europe we are used to a different price level I guess. We paid USD 100 per person for a la carte dinner and just one... More

Hands down this is the best restaurant I have ever been to. I love a good steak and don't want to always have to go into town to get it. The service was exceptional and everything from salad to main course, sides and dessert was high quality worth every penny. My new favorite restaurant.

What can I say, hands down the best steakhouse north of Boston. exceptional service fortunate to have dined here several times to confirm the consistency of the food and service. Ive had the filet and my husband had the rib eye which was huge. The sweet potato is enormous, but the steaks are the true show stoppers here. The blueberry... More

I have eaten at this restaurant maybe 40 times over the last 5 years and I have yet to have a bad meal, the service is stellar and the food is superb.

Overall - Not really worth the $$$, but I didn't not like it. The food was good, but all just a bit "over done +" even the bread basket bread, and I have never met a pop over I didn't like. Its in a weird charmless building/parking lot. Its way too dark inside. The wait staff are like a bunch... More

We have been big fans of pellana over the past fews years. Generally great service, amazing food. The past few times we have gone this year we end up with the same server. He is only concerned with up selling and getting the customer out of the building as quick as possible to flip his table. I worked in a... More

This was a surprisingly good meal in a small town. I never expected to find what appears to be a big city steakhouse in Peabody. The ambiance is dark and elegant. The filet I had was cooked to perfection, and the tomato mozzarella salad was excellent. They have an extensive and very good wine list with bottles in all price... More

Pellana is a bit of a hidden jewel: a dark paneled steakhouse nestled behind where an IHOP used to be. We tried this for my wife's birthday, and it was every bit the restaurant you would hope for when planning to dine out for a special occasion. We all had steaks, and in our party we like them in very... More

Have been to Pellana a number of times. Something has changed . I had a piece of salmon which was mushy like it had been previously frozen. Frozen fish in an upscale New England restaurant!! My partner had a steak which was not very good either. Seems like Pellana is no longer serving the highest quality food. Not going back.
