Diner Reviews
  • "Love everything about the place......from the king kong roll to the Chinese veggies"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The decor of the restaurant was very modern and open. However, the location of the restaurant was a bit iffy. It was hard to distinguish it as a restaurant due to the suburban setting. If it had been among other shops, perhaps it would have been easier to find. The food was very good. However, the portions were a bit small, considering most of their customers are from suburban settings. Some flavors were repetitive, finding the same taste in two dishes that one would not normally expect. The waiter was not as attentive as one would have liked. Although I went on a Sunday evening, he still should have been cordial and attentive. He was difficult to find at times. Overall, it had a good atmosphere and I would like to return."

  • "Great food - I haven't been left speechless on a restaurants food and service in years. My wife told me about this place and set it up as a sushi gem. I don't eat sushi! To my surprise, this was more than a sushi restaurant. I had a Red Chili Tenderloin that was paired with brocoli and rice. The sauce was amazing! Thank you for exceeding my expectation and making my first night out in 8 months an enjoyable evening!"

  • "Pleased to find out that my online request for a table away from the hustle and bustle was noticed and honored. Thanks for that. Before I'd go to Nectar again I'd call ahead and determine if it was just one night or if they played loud "techno" music every night. I guess they are trying to infuse energy into the impressively designed and thoughtfully decorated dining space. The "music" was a big negative and even though the meal and the service were very good, this one factor detracts a lot if you are trying to have a quiet conversation. For some reason, the music was much louder in the bathroom. You give only four choices for Noise Level in your survey--Quiet, Moderate, Energetic, Don't Recall. What about Distractingly Loud!"

  • "I've been coming to Nectar for some time now. It's always our special celebration "go to" place. Food is always good and service is excellent! The best lobster pad thai! The drink menu is superb and always something new is added by the season."

  • "I have lived in the area for over thirty years. Have been driving by Nectar since it opened. Decided to give it a try and was thrilled with the choice. The waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. The food from start to finish was great! My new favorite spot on the mainline."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This happens to be one of my clients favorite spots and I tend to agree. the service at the bar was very attentive and polite. the service at the table was delightful and they new it was a business lunch so they left us alone to talk. Very nice experience and the food is fantastic to boot!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We really enjoy Nectar for sushi. This last time we had the pumpkin roll which was out of this world. I also recommend the Lobster sliders. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu if you are a fan of Asian inspired food and sushi. There is also a nice variety of beverages from wines to beer to cocktails."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The wife and I decided to go out for dinner and found Nectar through Urbanspoon app on the iPhone. Loved the OpenTable integration - we got a table. Got seated immediately - recommend you get a reservation for the weekend. Great food and drink options. Both the Sushi & Sashimi combo and the specialty roll that my wife got were really good! They also have a good selection of cocktails and Saki. Overall a great experience. Though it is surely on the pricey side."

  • "Took my friend here for his 40th bday. He had never been but I have been to nectar many times. While I have always enjoyed great food, this night, in particular, was fantastic!! From the spicy yellow tail/toro sushi roll to my wok lobster and the donuts -it was amazing!!!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Very good food and great service although the table that my wife and I were given, where I had made reservations a few weeks back, was not what I had hoped for. In corner of restaurant with what seemed like drapery separation from the main dining room and the vibrant colorful scene that makes the restaurant part of what it is as a classy place. I spent the entire meal looking at a stone wall five feet from my face, which did not add much to the atmosphere of such restaurant."

  • "Food is fabulous. Normally come for sushi, but tried a few different items. Full of flavor! great service"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We have had tremendous meals all three times I have been to this restaurant. Most recently their Bento Box Sushi for Two has impressed us with rich-tasting and fresh tuna and salmon, as well as a fantastic interplay of flavors in the rolls. I followed that with the Wok Beef and baby broccoli. Beautifully presented and done perfectly. Once again, the bar was in form with the cocktails prepared quickly and expertly. From the moment you walk in the service was friendly and just the right level. We were impressed."

  • "Arrived for an 8 o'clock Saturday night reservation and of course, the place was packed with no standing room at the bar. We were pleasantly surprised when the hostess said it'll be about 10 minutes wait and it was just 10 minutes! Service was excellent for everything and food arrived in an amazingly short amount of time considering there wasn't an empty table in the house. Sushi roll was large enough to share and the salted shrimp and tenderloin entree was the perfectly sized portion after an app. The only downside after a couple of times visiting at Nectar is the noise level."

  • "Nectar was excellent, the drinks were good, the fancy sushi roll we shared was very good, the seafood bento appetizer was excellent, my salted shrimp and beef was excellent. Just be ready to pay for the excellence, the place is not cheap."

  • "We returned here for Valentines Day. Although we had a reservation, we expected to wait a bit for a table. Not so! We were seated immediately, despite the busy evening, and wait area full of hopefuls. Service was spot on. They served a champagne and strawberry drink for the occasion, but it was ridiculously yummy, so should be a permanent item. My favorite drink was absent from the menu. Hoping it is just seasonal (RunawayGolfcart - needs to come back if that is not the case). I always get the filet and shrimp dish. The sauce is so good. I'm normally an adventurous diner, however, both my husband and I always get the same things - just so goo! The special roll with shrimp and filet is wonderful as well."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Really love the food here, but the service was very poor. It's one thing if the restaurant is packed, but it was actually dying down a bit and our service was still poor. But other than that, the food is incredible here... I would highly recommend coming here for anyone who enjoys Asian cuisine."
