    Vegetarian entree pretty good. One fish entree very good but another was bit too dry and also was unseasoned. It was very crowded and kitchen must have been stressed

    Have eaten at Nage several times before and really enjoyed the food, but this time was a disappointment. Some of the food was over-salted, and the seafood in the Nage Specialty was bland and tasteless. I will probably try it again, but maybe not so soon.

    We were told we could have gluten free crackers with the cheeseboard. We were halfway through the cheese and rice crackers were brought out! We had already eaten the wheat ones. Good thing we didn't have celiac disease. Very noisy also. The burger was so salty my friend couldn't eat it.

    We enjoyed the lunch at Nage. The sandwich was too big for me, but the crab salad my companion got was too small. We'll know for next time. The food was presented very well and tasted wonderful. The room was quiet and that was the best part.

    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.

    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.

    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!
