  • What a down trip

    Our waiter was new on the job. He had no clue how to open a bottle of wine, nor to poor it. That is OK, everyone is new at some point of their career. But - we could not order the pasta al dente. The poor waiter explained that the kitchen had their procedures and this was not doable. We gasped. When the pasta finally came, the suspicion was right: This was pre made pasta, probably heated with hot water. Needless to say it was disgusting. When we explained the situation to the waiter, he told us that this was how it was supposed to be. "the owners are two Ladies from Italy, and they try to keep the food as close to their mothers cooking as possible". Sigh. They took the pasta off the tab and gave os limoncello. Thank You!

  • Liptisck on water glass
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Towards the end of my meal I noticed a faint lipstick mark on my water glass. I had ordered a soda water as well so this was why I did not notice the mark earlier in the meal. When our plates were cleared a told a Nebo employee who apologized and advised she would get the manager. The manager came over and apologized explaining "lipsitck is hard to get off". I really don't think this is an accepable explanation. Yes, it could be difficult to remove from the glass but this glass quite frankly could have never been washed. He asked to take my business card and offered the best table in the house for next time I dine at Nebo. I politely declined as I will not be returning. I shared this experience with my department at work.

    If you're looking for an upscale, pretty authentic Italian restaurant you should definitely go to Nebo. It has an excellent menu, the food was delicious and the service was great. We had a few appetizers and the burrata pizza and loved everything we got. Also, if you're looking for a fun and interesting cocktail list they've got that too. Enjoy!

    While I liked the look, it was very loud despite being only 65% full. My drink was too strong, almost entirely gin & I love gin so that's saying a lot. I sent it back & they doctored it up, but still not good-I left more than half of it and at $12 I was not happy it wasn't removed from my bill. Goat cheese panna cotta app was delicious & highlight of the meal. They were able to make a vegan pasta dish for my bf but he said it was too spicy & nothing he couldn't make at home - not worth $24. Had high hopes for the zucchini lasagna that won on Food Network, but it was unremarkable. A man at the next table even sent back his dish for being too bland. Seems like Nebo isn't what it used to be but could be a good place for wine/apps on the patio.

    We had a nice window table for two around 5:30pm on a Saturday. It wasn't busy at this time which we liked. Our server was not very friendly and he provided poor service; he only had three tables at the time. He spilled some of my wine when poured my glass. He give me the wrong entree and my husband food was just siting cold, waiting for my food to come. The food was good but for a place this expensive with many people working, I expect much better service. I couldn't even imagine what the service would be like when the restaurant was very busy. Maybe our experience was an outlier but it still wasn't pleasant.

    We made a reservation for 9:15 on a Saturday and got a table outside. We looked over the menu while we waited (and waited and waited) for our server. FINALLY (after 8 minutes of waiting) he came over and said "uhh do you guys want sparking water or tap?" ...... wait, what!?! He walked away my boyfriend and I just looked at each other, did that just happen? We agreed to give him another chance but upon his return he then said "sooo uhh do you want a glass of wine or something?" My boyfriend and I immediately made eye contact and thought "screw spending our money here". We told him we were fine with water and would need another minute to look over the menu. When he walked away we got up and left but not before informing the hostess.

    Four of us went to Nebo for lunch. None of us had been there before. We shared an order of calamari and an order of olives and both dishes were tasty. Two of us had italian sandwiches. Fresh bread and great quality meats and cheese. Very tasty. The other two had the veal dish and both enjoyed it. Overall, the four of us were very happy about the whole experience.

    We went to Nebo for a mid week dinner and watched as the very vibrant bar scene transitioned to a bustling full house in the restaurant section. The burrata starter was super creamy and served with some tasty proscuito and vegetable chutney. The vegetarian lasagne was remarkable light given the vast amount of sliced veggies and cheese it contained. The noise level was definitely up there but we found we could still have a pleasant conversation without shooting. I'd go back.

    Although Nebo has been open for a while, our first chance to get a reservation was early Saturday night. Since it wasn't crowded yet, the noise was minimal but I'm sure it will be louder when it is full. The food was terrific - homemade bread is absolutely addictive - and the service was excellent. The zucchini lasagna was so good we ordered one for take-out to bring home to our kids. I would recommend this restaurant highly!

    Nebo is a great restaurant. Our waitress was extremely nice, knew the menu well enough to make recommendations not just for the appetizers and main courses but also knew the drink menu as well. She was attentive the entire time. The food was good. Some of the best gnocchi I've ever had. There were only two things I would mention. I asked the hostesses two questions the entire time I was there and both times they seemed like I was inconveniencing them and the other thing would be to read the menu carefully. The food I ordered had no side to it. It was just two pieces of chicken. My fault I should have read the menu but it should definitely come with something for the cost of it. Other than that I would definitely go back here.

    I really really wanted to like Nebo. It's in a great space, in a great location, and I can always get on board with good Italian food. But for a fine dining restaurant, their service is poor, burdened with unnecessarily strict rules (no getting seated until your entire party is here, no changing anything on the menu) and waiters/hostesses who seem disinterested in your comfort and experience. And the food is just "meh." I've tried something different each time I went, and neither myself nor my companions had anything great to say about the food. For the prices (almost $90 for lunch of 2 salads, 1 sandwich, 1 entree and a SMALL glass of wine) it's just not worth it. Sorry Nebo. I really really wanted to like you, but it's not my fault.

    I booked this reservation for Thursday night dinner on the Sunday before. The only times available were 5:15 and 9:00 which seemed a bit crazy to me. The bar was definitely full at 5:15, but by 6:30, only half of the tables were full. I don't understand this... Anyway, our server was outstanding (Kevin) and the food was delicious. The location was great; since our table was by the window, we could watch the world go by. I had the veal milanese - very good. My friend had the special of the day which was arctic char in a light sauce with clams. Garlic bread was also good, but extra. All in all, a good experience.

    First chance to check out Nebo's new location and I loved it. Same great food-too many tasty antipasti to try which makes it a challenge to get to the secondi/main courses. We tried the misto fritto and cozze(mussels) apps, both very good and then we forced ourselves to try the fettucini grano arso(wheat pasta, roasted pork with a butter sage sauce) which was excellent(portion size was smallish for those looking for a heaping bowl of pasta).

    We came to Nebo and got a beautiful table right next to a full length window and enjoyed dinner by candlelight. Arancini and Budino are wonderful, and the squid ink with scallops and marscapone cream sauce are not to be missed. This is the perfect restaurant for us as my date is gluten free while I am non celiac and we are both Italian food lovers. The beverage program is likewise thoughtful and well executed. Service was attentive and knowledgable while also unpretentious and nonintrusive. Affogato makes for a perfect finish.
