    Nage KNOWS food and I know how to eat, but Oh where to sit! There are 3 possible choices and for Jazz Brunch on Sunday the decision was tedious. At first we were to be seated in the crying fussy children area. Declining that choice I suggested the main dining area would be suitable. Standing in the doorway, I asked "Are they watching a football game in there?" We selected the bar area instead and chose to listen to Bruce Anthony a wonderful guitar player. Fortunately, the folks in this section liked his music as well and did not try to "yell" a conversation. So to all you foodies out there tone it down a few decibels! We do not wish to hear your latest escapades from four tables across the room. Peaceful soft conversations please!

    This was our second trip to Nage and even better than our first. Our server, Brook, I believe, was outstandng with recommendations, being attentive but not overbearing. I love that you can purchase a "taste" of wine, 3 oz, to see if you like it, a regular, 6 oz. drink or a 9 oz. drink, which I ordered because I knew I loved the wine. We had the Filet Mignon, on a truffle oil cake, with wonderfully seasoned green beans. It was the best meal of our 4 day stay in Rehoboth. We went back the next day for Brunch, which was equally wonderful. The Chef cooked our eggs to PERFECTION, one over medium, the other over easy. Both meals were divine. I HIGHLY recommend Nage, but I would encourage reservations for the weekend and Sunday Brunch.

    Had a GREAT meal. The pork shoulder and the beef short rib dishes were excellent--with some nice wine by the glass options. The chef came by to ask how we liked everything--a sign of a someone very committed to making his customers happy. And Danny M's service was tops.

    While the service was slow (let's call it "laid back"), the atmosphere was great, the food really fine and the drinks reasonable. Our server was quite chatty, which I usually don't like, but somehow it worked here (maybe it was because Rehoboth's low key atmosphere). I'll certainly return, if only to savor the shrimp and grits again!

    Nage's Tuesday evening 'burger nights' feature multiple special choices, plus their enticing regular menu. We opted for delicious 'Nage Burgers', and substituted other vegetables for 'Nage frites' (excellent themselves, but we went healthier... this time). Celebrating 'her' birthday, we washed down our juicy burgers with glasses of bubbly (gratis, with B'day card as Nage regulars...Thanks, Nage!). And, for the occasion, we shared an enormous, decadent, multi-layer chocolate cake (w/bday candle, of course!). Attentive service (even a visit from sous-chef Sean), cozy booths, tasty food... one of our favorite dining haunts... our 'go-to' choice for really good meals in a welcoming ambiance.

    We've eaten at Nage several times, and never has the meal been this disappointing. First, it took over an hour for the food to arrive. We only ordered crab cakes and burgers, so it wasn't as if we had placed any extravagant needs on the kitchen. I don't think the place is equipped to handle a full house. When the meals finally arrived, the burgers were overcooked and the crab was lacking in flavor. Very disappointing. We won't be returning any time soon.

    Nage has become one of our favorite places in Rehoboth. Service is always good. Halibut (butter poached?) was one of the best halibuts I've had -- very moist and tasty. My husband had filet mignon, green beans, and potato cakes -- excellent. Nage's steaks are better than what we get at premier steakhouses. Hummus appetizer and kale salad also were very good (although I'd like to see a basic mixed green salad reappear on the menu at some point).

    This was my second visit to Nage in a month and both times were exceptional!! The food is non-traditional but very enjoyable on every level. The staff is efficient and helpful without being overbearing. I can't believe that this restaurant has been in Rehoboth for 10 years and I just got wind of it! Be sure to add Nage to your list of favorites if you are looking for quality food served by a friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. You won't be disappointed!!

    Nage Restaurant in Rehoboth is one of my favorite all-time restaurants. I was worried when they brought in a new head chef and made some menu changes that I might not love it as much. But they've kept their best dishes and sides, updated some others, and added some new ones. We began with an order of Nage frites - fried matchstick white and sweet potatoes with a bit of truffle oil. I had the halibut poached in butter, and it was fabulous. My friend had the lobster ravioli; equally wonderful. The staff is always impeccable. Everyone who walked past our table glanced over to see if we needed anything - a fresh drink, more water, whatever.

    Sunday was the first time we have had brunch at Nage. It was delicious, we had the duck confit salad, roasted oysters, and eggs benedict and crab crepes. Everything was delicious. My husband liked the salad but would not get it again as he felt there was not enough duck or greens for the price. The service was excellent even though they were busy with several large tables. The crab crepes were full of crabmeat and came with a small salad. The eggs benedict was wonderful on homemade biscuits and also came with a salad. It was a great meal.

    My husband and I are both vegetarians so it's often hard to find a place to eat in locations with mostly seasonal clientele. We had a wonderful meal at Nage and we will definitely return. Note, that it's located in the shopping area of Coastal Highway and for some reason my phone GPS located it incorrectly and the street number could not be entered on the car GPS. It is somewhat hard to find but worth the effort.

    Many of the best meals I've had on the Delaware shore have been at Nage. We had dinner on a "meatless Monday," which meant that the specials were vegetarian. The spicy soba noodles were very good, as were the salads. The seafood stew and the beet cured hamachi were also very good. The wine recommendations were excellent. One of us thought it was noisy; the rest of us thought it was fine and liked the ambience.

    The Meatless Monday menu allows my wife and I to enjoy vegan choices while our friends have a variety of meat dishes they can choose from. While the menu items are closer to vegetarian, you can request "no cheese" and be as close to vegan as you can without sacrificing taste.

    Found this place during a weekend trip to the beach, one of the best brunches we've had in a while. The restaurant wasn't crowded at all, the wait staff was so helpful and pleasent and there were trivia cards on the table!! I got so excited during our trivia game that I spilled my mimosa and they gave me a replacement free of charge! What an awesome dining experience and the food was exceptional! Highly reccomend!!!

    Nage was truly a great find! And other reviews are accurate when they mention the location doesn't match the beautiful inside. My boyfriend and I are both vegetarian and they had a great selection for us. They were able to make an item vegetarian for me and my boyfriend had the veggie tasting. We really didn't want the food to end. Every bite was perfect. Will be back! (Try the Brie, it's heavenly)

    First, I changed our reservation 4 times and they were able to accommodate us (it was a Tuesday night, so not so busy). We were seated right away and were doted on by the waitstaff, who were all incredibly pleasant. Each member of the waitstaff was incredibly knowledgeable about the food and made great recommendations. We brought our two children, 3 and 6 yo and they were very accommodating. We ordered the mac 'n' cheese appetizer for both kids, which as my husband says, was the best ever. The hummus was delicate but flavorful, and we loved the accompaniments. The halibut was recommended and was cooked perfectly with the most flavorful couscous! Great drink menu. Desserts (creme brulee and blueberry ginger) were not too sweet but flavorful.

    I was so impressed with Nage - the food and the service were both superb. I would go back anytime I am in the Rehoboth area which sadly isn't often enough! The bartender who served us before we went to our table was wonderful and the tasting flights and ability to order a tasting size glass of wine was really awesome - when we sat for dinner, we knew exactly what wine to order a full glass of with dinner. I wish they would open a Nage in Philadelphia where I live!

    We ordered the steak to be cooked medium rare but it was slightly overcooked. They offered to bring us another on but since we were in a hurry we declined. So instead they brought us the lobster ravioli which was excellent!! We did not expect it but that's why they get extra points for service. We will be back.
