    We have been going to Nage for years, have known three different chefs and the results are always the delivery of an excellent dining experience. The food is first rate, the menu eclectic, the staff very professional.

    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!

    I chose Nage for a dinner meeting with a new business contact. So many restaurants in our area do not take reservations and will not confirm a table preference. Nage will do both. I also know that the food and service are exceptional. They offer a wonderful selection of wine by the glass and I always find something on the menu that is not found anywhere else. This time I had the monkfish and my guest had the crab cake. We split each and enjoyed both.

    We had an excellent dinner with friends. This was my second time at Nage in the past two months. The waiter, Chris was really knowledgeable, and on top of things without being obtrusive. I had an excellent butter poached Halibut, as did most of my group. Really good wine list and recommendation too. The only thing I would like to see improved, was the amount of salad dressing on the kale Cesare. Wayyyyyy to much. I had this salad on my first visit and loved it, but this time the vast amount took away from the whole presentation of flavors. All in all, a great dinner and I'm sure to be back!

    Food was ok...hostess not friendly or accommodating. We went for Anniversary dinner and we were seated under an air conditioner vent and asked for a booth and was told that the booths had been reserved for parties of 4 ...there were three open booths when we arrived..... a few minutes later the hostess sat a party of two at one of the vacant booths...the booth we asked for sat empty during our whole dinner.

    We have found Nage to be a Rehoboth Beach, Delaware restaurant that uses fresh and local produce and meats in the preparation of their meals. Consequently, we frequent this restaurant each August during our visit to the beach. This year we found the chicken to be slightly spicy and not quite to our liking. Nonetheless, the soft shell crab dish was fine. There was a bit more breading than would have been preferred and very small pieces of bacon (almost nonexistent) in the Clams Casino. Also the clams had been baked intact making it difficult to extract them from the shell.

    We are regular diners at Nage. Nage never disappoints and now it has changed it's decor, menu and chef and all the changes are positive. The new menu is very created and has something for everyone. I do miss my old standby "Steak Frites Nage Style", but they offer a similar option with a filet mignon. The poached buttery halibut was one of the best seafood dishes I have had in Rehoboth. All of the changes have given the restaurant a new life and the locals should make sure they add Nage to their favorites list. You won't be disappointed with the food, service or the new menu.

    Located in a strip mall with VERY limited parking (most spots are designated for the large liquor store in the mall), the food is the star at Nage. Service was somewhat lacking, with long waits for drinks, and a somewhat inexperienced staff. However, the wine flight I had was perfect, clearly created by a bartender who knew her wines well. The food...now, that makes it worth the trip. Small plates were excellent, particularly the brie baked in phyllo and the hummus. The corn ravioli and lobster tail special was delicious, especially the corn ravioli, which should be a dish in its own right. The lobster in that dish was skimpy, disappointing the diner. When filled to capacity, this restaurant is LOUD!

    Very nice attentive staff, but over-priced uneven quality food. My daughter had ravioli with lobster; the lobster was tasteless and stringy, I highly suspect it was a cheap frozen tail. My husband had the $27 salmon special, which was tasty but tiny. I had two starters and a beet salad, and enjoyed my meal thoroughly. It was my birthday dinner, and I enjoyed myself, but the next day warned my friend of the uneven quality. My husband definitely will never try it again. I might try lunch with my friend.

    Nage has been consistently good with fresh, usually locally sourced foods. We went as a party of 6. Among us, we got veal, tuna, corn and lobster ravioli and a burger. All agreed that the food was excellent. The wine list is not extensive, but there are some very good choices in every varietal. Being in a shopping center with parking is an added benefit during the summer when parking in Rehoboth is difficult.

The atmosphere was perfect from the acoustic guitar player to the darkened setting. Sean Corea and Paul Gallo are great assets to your restaurant and the food was top notch!

    Nage is always consistently great and innovative. Love the wine flights. My only negative is that with a restaurant that makes such an effort to be creative and to use only the freshest ingredients (it would seem), you'd think its customers might make more of an effort to dress creatively and only in their best "at the beach" attire. Call me a snob; call me old-fashioned, but it really would be more appropriate to at least wear a t-shirt without writing on it if a guy can't manage to wear a collared shirt. Oh well. Doesn't affect the food, thank goodness!

    Had excellent meal here w/friends... food, wine, & service all top-notch (as usual). After tasty salads (roasted beets w/goat cheese; roasted duck w/greens), we enjoyed 2 specials (veal osso buco; boef bourgignon) while our guests feasted on 'shrimp & grits' and 'seared scallops' dishes...; we finished by sharing an innovative cobbler of peaches, berries and chocolate...yummy! This is our 'go-to place' when we want to dine well in an intimate ambiance... always a positive experience, never rushed, and fairly priced (though not cheap) considering the quality of ingredients and preparation. Booking ahead is prudent during busy summer season!

    We went on a meatless monday, but we were not overly interested in the vegetarian specials. However what we did end up ordering was excellent. My salad included the largest serving of goat cheese we have ever seen, and though it and the salad were excellent I was unable to finish it. My wife had the filet for dinner and I had the veal, both of which were also excellent. Unfortunately we were too full to order dessert. Our only complaint was that when we first arrived they tried to seat us at a small table in the corner despite many open tables. When we asked to sit at one of the other tables they quickly complied.

    I enjoyed this restaurant. There was not a lot to choose from, however. The food that was offered was also not for people who don't like to try new things. The mac-n-cheese had peas and mushrooms. The burger was covered in white cheddar and onions with a side of truffle fries. I thought the food was very good and I enjoyed having some different flavors added to some old American classics, but my friend who had the crab cake with pork belly did not enjoy it as much as I did. If you have kids or picky eaters in your party, I would not advise going to this restaurant. If not, enjoy, the place is wonderful.

    We had the pleasure of dining at Nage Rehoboth this past weekend. Our party of four, including one vegetarian, could not have been happier with the selection and quality of the food. We thought the mussels, kale salad, beet salad, macaroni & cheese, and seafood a la Nage were fabulous. However, it was the absolutely perfect service that made the evening very special. Our server exemplified what customer service in the restaurant industry should be - attentive, friendly, informative, yet not overly-hovering. Thank you for our favorite meal in a week of exploring the Rehoboth/Bethany area.

    We've eaten here a few times in the past but they now have a new menu. The food was very good although the portions are not very big. The asiago oysters are excellent, and reasonable ($3 ea) but $16 for a tiny fois gras app is steep. The prices are higher than I would have expected, but maybe we'll go back for the oysters and a burger.

    Had been dying to try it for some time. A friend told me it was a hidden gem. She knows her foodie stuff! It was terrific. The food and service were great. All of the servers were attentive and asked if we needed anything as they walked by. Fresh local flavors exemplifying local meats and vegetables. If there was one thing to improve on it would be the descriptions on the menu. Not quite detailed. Will be back for sure.
