We had dinner there with new friends, who are frequent patrons. Going to Alana's restaurant feels like going to someone's house for dinner... it has a very personal vibe to it, great food (but not the least bit pretentious), and is just a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. I had the nightly "surprise" entree... which is literally, a surprise. Those who are not quite as adventurous have a good menu to choose from. We loved it.
