    I used to dine here frequently but stopped after being treated rudely by one of the hosts. I am glad we decided to return after about 4 years. The menu is pretty much the same but the food was very very good. The wine and drink list is excellent as well. And we were lucky to find our favorite waiter, Bob, was still there and remembered us.

  • Did Something Change?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    In the past, Nectar has never failed to provide an exquisite and uniquely wonderful dining experience. So much so that it became the go to place for those special occasions. The food was something really special, each morsel slowly savored with all the senses. An experience that far transcended merely eating. The last two visits however were disappointingly just ok. Not bad, still provided an enjoyable evening, but no match for the still vivid memories of the exceptional culinary wizardry of visits past. Hopefully it's just two consecutive anomalies and the magic is alive and well and not indicative of a new standard.

    I was very excited to take my team to nectar, I told them how great the food was, when we arrived I was stopped by the valet parking attentant, and I said 'oh no thankyou' for 2 reasons 1. I had no cash and 2. I've nevered used it as I'm australian. He proceeded to bang the roof of my rental car as I drove to park. Great food but would never recommend to anyone. It may be a US custom but being rude or volient doesn't excuse ignorance.

    Dined on 8/8/2014
    My husband and I went for dinner. This is the fifth time that we have been to Nectar. For starters, we had sushi and the cheese plate. The sushi was outstanding. The cheese plate which was just ok, I've had much better. For our entrees, I had the mushroom pad thai which was very good. My husband had the hot pot which he did not really care for. The desserts were very good. We sat outdoors which was very nice because it was very noisy in the restaurant. As we walked through the restaurant to leave, I noticed the carpet inside. It was absolutely horrendous (dirty and worn). It really turn me off. My suggestion: Don't Look Down!

    My husband and I had a vey enjoyable experience at Nectar this past weekend. The food was delicious, service was impeccable and the atmosphere was lovely. My biggest complaint was that the menu covers were filthy! It was obvious that the menu covers have been used for years as they were stained and greasy. I had to wash my hands after our server took our order (and took away the menus). If management can update the menus, then the restaurant will be perfect.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    The concierge for parking needs some watching. Just a note of caution to check your car before leaving. The whole dining, service, seating, food experience was great. The parking concierge was quick and efficient and because of that I tipped higher than I would normally. Got up early in the morning after to do a store run and saw that my car was contacted by something, not sure what. Luckily it appears that it is not rubbed through the top/clear coat and I should be able to rub it out. But that's a PIA. I know this was not there as I had been wiping down the car all week due to the rain, etc to keep it sharp.

    Dinner on a Saturday night & were first time diners. Great food, excellent quality taste and ingredients; I ordered the braised short ribs and my friend got scallops & mushroom risotto; both delicious. However, the portion size of the food was very different for the entrees. My ribs were a good size and came with potatoes but the scallop entree only came with 4 scallops and a small amount of risotto & that entree was more expensive than mine. For the price I think the scallop entree should have been a larger; I gave my friend some of my ribs. No bread or anything else included with the meal. We both ordered dessert, mine was the Valhrona chocolate torte, outstanding! Restaurant is very noisy and the music is loud & awful, dance music.

    It's been a while since we were there for dinner but have enjoyed lunches. It was a perfect celebration. We shared a salad. The greens tasted as if they had just been picked. I had the soft shells and my husband the chicken and shrimp. We were treated to dessert in honor of my birthday. The soft shells were amazing. Service, reception and food all excellent. Thank you Nectar for a lovely evening.

    We booked a table at Nectar using Open Table. In the comment section, I mentioned that it was our anniversary, and requested a table away from any wait stations. Sometimes you wonder if the comment section is read - well at Nectar - they do read them. The hostess welcomed us, acknowledged our anniversary and saved us a wonderful, romantic corner table. The waitstaff was attentive, but not overly so. The food was fabulous, as were the drinks. The bartender was able to make my husband a daiquiri from scratch (not many can) - not blended - it was perfect! For dessert, we ordered donuts with dipping sauce. They came with a lit candle and were complimentary. We will return again and again.

    This is not your parents' Asian restaurant. With two vegetarians in the family, we often have difficulty finding a restaurant with options for everyone, so were pleased to find that Nectar offers wonderful choices for all. The edamame dumplings are not to be missed (even the meat-eaters love them), and the crunchy tempura vegetable sushi roll is a welcome change from the cucumber rolls that are often a vegetarian's only choice. My picky meat-eating son loves the pork dumplings and the grilled filet mignon. While it's bit on the pricy side, Nectar does not disappoint.

    This restaurant came highly recommended for our anniversary dinner.My husband has eaten here several times for business lunches,so he thought it would be a good.We requested a good table since celebrating our anniv.Upon arriving we were offered a table for 2 among a row of 8+ tables.I expressed that I really wanted to just eat dinner with my husband,not the rest of their guests.I suggested a small booth only to have them seat 4 business guys in the adjacent booth!! There were so many other options for their seating, as well as us, but no attention/thought was put in to our seating.Now for our server, did we ever really have one?She laid our menus down,opened water,once asked us how things were,while neglecting us the majority of the time.

    We took our neighbors to Nectar in appreciation for all they do for us while we are away. It met all our criteria of an impressive but relaxed atmosphere, trendy and thoughtfully compiled menu, excellent service and fun, fun beverages in addition to a very nice wine list. Everyone left comfortably satisfied but not 'stuffed' which is perfect. Only downside is the rather cavernous room sometimes reached a high noise level. Center City dining in the burbs!
