  • Hit and miss
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 11/21/2014
    We started off with the lamb stuffed kale. These were a play on dolmadas and we're pretty well flavored, just a little dry. Tasted like they were precooked and sat for a while. The steak salad was ok considering it was grass fed beef. I know it's the rage and healthier but it doesn't lead to a melt in your mouth steak. That being said, it was cooked perfectly mid-rare, just a little tough still. Our third dish was the pork medallions with roasted radish and root vegetables. The hit...the roasted raddishes, absolutely amazing flavor, I could have eaten a whole bowl. The miss...the pork, it never saw a grain of salt before being sautéed and it was lethargic when it arrived. Not being in the mood to complain, I salted it myself and moved on. They did have a band that was a lot of fun to listen to and we stayed in the bar for a drink and music afterwards. The bartender REALLY knows what he's doing with cocktails and served me a B&B in a warm snifter. It made the night! We asked who the chef was and there doesn't appear to be s clear cut head chef, just a "group of guys" that also work the farm, which might explain some of the problem? If they could get a head chef to fine tune these great farm ingredients like the bartender works the bar, we'd definitely be back.

    Nathalie's is an excellent restaurant and if you're looking for something a little different from the standard St. Louis restaurant layout then you should definitely give this place a try. Much of the food is sourced from their own farm so it's fresh and very good. If you want to know more, ask the guy with the beard in the band- he's also one of the farm foreman so you can learn all about it. Great little bar too.

    Met a friend there for my birthday dinner/drinks. Ended up eating in the bar where a quartet was playing. Fantastic atmosphere and wonderful menu selections. Just did a couple appetizers- crab cakes and their French onion soup was the best best I have ever had. I enjoyed the music and atmosphere in the bar. I normally shy away from flavored Moehead toes but thought I would take a chance when the bartender recommended there pomegranate one. Again, best I have ever had. he kept disappearing though and was not very attentive. It took quite a while just to put in my order and since my friend was not eating it was a bit awkward having to wait so long. Good size crowd for 9 PM on a Thursday. Impressed with their late-night hours.

    We have been wanting to try Nathalie's for some time. It just so happened to work out for brunch on Sunday. What a wonderful surprise from the moment we walked in the door! A wonderful greeting and after being seated we were serviced by a very nice server, Scott. The menu, food, drinks, all wonderful. Highly recommend! Took a tour of the basement private dinig space and plan to have a small group for dinner sometime soon!

    Four of us went to dinner at 6 PM. We were the only table and remained the only table until we left at 8 PM. Two of us ordered the tilapia. It was so salty it was almost inedible. The waiter tried to compensate by bringing dessert without our ordering it. Both men had the beef dish and neither one would order it again. We were so disappointed and question if this will be open in another couple of months. Too bad because the décor is lovely and a great deal of money has been poured into this restaurant. But we will not return.

    This restaurant is great in concept and did pretty well....with some work on the execution. Very good food but not always served as described. Also, the wait staff was very nice but not properly trained for what was set up to be a fine dining experience. I appreciate not bring rushed but this was a bit too slow, even for us. I'll give it another try....and hope they get the details ironed out.

    Love that everything comes from the Farm in Clarkesville. Food was very fresh. Service was just soooo slow. We will try again on another night and I'll order something else. My two dishes were uninspiring but my dining companion raved about the beef. They are very accommodating to dietary restrictions.

    We arrived at 12:15 for brunch. Our waiter didn't tell us the specials and take our order for 25 minutes. Our food didn't come out til 1:15, and the place wasn't even full. The waiter didn't apologize, didn't bring bread, and made it sound like because two of us ordered burgers, it was our fault that it took so long. Once we received our food, it had good flavor. The burgers were supposed to be medium, but were well done. Disappointed.

    We arrived early so we waited for our group in the bar, which was very nice. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was pretty good, but with the ambiance and emphasis on farm to table, I wasn't that impressed. We started with the ricotta gnocchi, and the texture was not good, they were grainy and dense. I had the pork chop which was cooked well, and the blackberry sauce was delicious. All in all there was some really good things about this meal and some very low moments, when ordering, stick to their locally grown basics, it was where Nathalie's excelled.

    Came here Monday with my husband and a friend. My husband and I are both vegetarians and we had plenty to eat. Most of it was pasta, which isn't always the greatest choice, but each one was full of flavor and vegetables. We started with the country garden salad and black bean ravioli for the table. Both well executed and delicious. Our friend got the Avalon chicken. It had things in it, like mushrooms, which he has never liked, but he loved the dish. We had the gnocchi and penne pastas. The penne especially was very good. The cocktails were also fantastic. The citrus saint something was amazing. Our server, stephanie, was awesome. In fact, everyone we interacted with was delightful. Overall great experience and we'll definitely be back.

    Our evening at Nathalie's started out with a very friendly hostess and competent server. The decor is lovely, feminine but not so much that it feels like a "ladies who lunch" tea house. Our dinners consisted of trout for my partner with the spinach/ricotta gnocchi and mixed veggies for me. The flavors were nuanced and delicious. It was obvious someone in the kitchen took time and consideration when preparing our food. The band in the bar was great, we were sat right next to the bar and it was only too loud a few times. Overall, Nathalie's was a great experience! The owner was present and hands on with guests, always a good sign.

    Seemed to be a lot of bad reviews, but we decided to give it a try. We're glad we did! The food was very good. The menu was full of delicious sounding dishes. The service was very good. The restaurant looks beautiful inside, much different than the previous incarnation. I think the management has been reading the reviews and taking action. Good luck, Natalie's!

    We went to Nathalie's on a recommendation from some of our friends. The appetizers were great- we had the black bean ravioli and the spinach ricotta gnocchi and they were so good. The thai chopped salad was also said to be really great- and spicy. But none of us really talked about how great our entree's were. I had the Avalon chicken and my husband had the trout and we were both just like "not something I would be raving about or telling all my friends they need to check it out". The service was also kind of weird. There were all these people besides your server bringing out food and just kind of walking around asking who ordered what- where was our server? The customers should not have to be calling out for their food. Website?

    We went to Nathalie's on a Friday night for a quiet dinner. At 7pm the restaurant was fairly empty but became more bustling later on. I had scallops which were delicious. My husband had the steak and did not enjoy it. There were vegetarian options for our vegetarian friend. Around 8, our quiet table was disrupted by a loud (but fine) band. I was not expecting this and it made it difficult for us to have a conversation. The restaurant is in a beautiful old home. Lovely ambiance. I would go back - but I am not sure if my husband would come with me.

    We took our family, including young grandchildren, for an early Friday night dinner. The service was some of the best I've ever had and what a beautiful restaurant. This will be at the top of my list for out of town guests. Menu is quite unique, and all of our dishes were very good. We had the flatbread appetizer and delicious bread so didn't have room on this trip for dessert. Also, didn't get to visit the bar but it looked quite intriguing. Definitely worth the trip.

    Food was like a weird buffet on one plate. Smokey, sweet, salty.... some requiring major gulps of water. Dessert trio was terrible- probably the worst desserts that I've ever been served at a restaurant. We know that we were not alone as the only other table that we could see was vocal about how terrible their food was. Shame because the place is so beautiful...

    This is my second time to Nathalie's and I once Gain enjoyed the food. I had a grass fed steak and the asparagus soup. I enjoyed both. The decor is a little over the top and looks like Christmas with greens, reds and gold. There are also so e strange plastic flowers tucked around but overall I find it a very nice addition to the neighborhood.

    I do not usually write bad reviews but this just had to be said. Horrible server. The nicest person was the one pouring water and the hostess was quite friendly. Our party waited an exceptionally long time for their drinks from the bar. When the food came out my husbands steak was over cooked. She made some excuse about how farm raised beef cooks different, it did not make any sense. All in all out of 7 ppl only 2 ppl enjoyed their dinner. At the end when our payments where settled she accidentally charged 2 ppls card 3x. How does that happen? We complained to the manager and he was completely unapologetic in fact he was very rude!! This place will never last with such poor management and staff with mediocre food. I won't be back!

    I was so excited to try Nathalie's, but was disappointed in the experience. The location is lovely, an old house redone in a funky style with blended elements of classical, modern, and Egyptian. The food sounded fantastic--local and interesting. However, the experience did not match the hype. As a vegetarian, my options were limited (this is not a problem, I only need one good vegetarian option). My friends and I found the crab cakes a bit dry, crumbly, and overly fishy, the black bean ravioli delicious, but smothered in a heavy and inescapable cream sauce, and the hummus inedible. The spanakopita was delicious but only available with the hummus. Add a grumpy waitress, and I won't go back for dinner, but might return for live music.
