Bf made a reservation for four for New Years Eve's prix fixe dinner. The server gave great recommendations for each course, and the food was delicious. We were seated in the "gallery" area in the back of the restaurant -- not as vibrant a scene as in the front, but we had no problem hearing each other talk. We ended... More

Went for first time for my partner's birthday. They gave us menu's with "Happy Birthday" printed at the top which was nice touch. We didn't like the table for two they tried to give us because it was right between two other tables. They first said they didn't have another available but soon came back and moved us to a... More

We have eaten at Posana a few times. The food is always excellent. The staff is always friendly. This is 100% gluten free restaurant. It is so nice to eat without fear and be able to enjoy anything on the menu. They also bake gluten-free bread for some of the local restaurant's. They will allow you to order thier bread... More

I have eaten at Posana a few times a year for several years and always look forward to it. This year the food was very good but presentation a little disappointing with lack of color in the soup of the day (a delicious cream of cauliflower that needed a drizzle of roasted red pepper puree perhaps); my house made fettuccine...

It was a great restaurant Nice atmosphere, plenty of unique food options, and near the heart of downtown. Debated between this place and Rhubarb right next door. Definitely a good choice!

We ate at Posana last Friday in a nicely appointed space. Our waitress was very attentive and the main courses and desserts were outstanding. One unanticipated benefit for someone like me facing hip-replacement surgery was the extremely comfortable leather chairs. That is reason enough to go back. Posana has an extensive wine list.

The atmosphere was great, I love the dining room. The staff was super and our wine was very good. The food, however, was average. Probably the highlight were the meatballs. The only thing that was not average was the trout which really was not very good. Trout is a delicate taste and being engulfed in broth hid the trout completely.... More

Service = excellent. Decor = calm and tasteful. Cuisine = delicious. Do try the brussel sprouts even if you don't generally like them-they are amazing. I enjoyed the ribeye and my daughter loved her dunk confit appetizer and brie salad.

Such a jewel of a find for a restaurant! Everything was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. One of our guests is gluten free and everything they serve is gluten free and tasted ABSOLUTELY fantastic!! Cannot say enough about the quality and "yumminess" of the food!!!

Entire menu is gluten free. My husband (who isn't gluten intolerant) and I shared small plates and everything was delicious. We started with the cheese plate, which even had gf bread with it! We also had the ahi tuna, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms and fettucini with pork meatballs. Yum! Service was great, perfectly timed. It was so nice to have an... More
