Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Having not been in years, due to noise and location, we returned to celebrate an occasion at the request of out teen. We had a great meal. If was delicious, elegant, and clearly ethnic. While it is still noisy, if you go in with that expectation, it is clearly worth it!"

  • "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!"

  • "This was probabl our 5th or 6th dinner here and Nectar never disappoints. We keep coming back because there are just so many great things to try on the menu. I started with a flight of Sake, had the Maine Roll, then finished with the Lobster & spicy steak stir fry, a fun version of Surf & Turf. The quality ingredients are always enhanced with fantastic sauces. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "I had an excellent dinner the night of the Belmont stakes at Nectar, a fine Asian fusion restaurant. The atmosphere is open with a high ceiling main dining room and out door dining also available. The food was very good including good sushi and interesting appetizers, including lobster sliders, lobster rolls, and chicken and pork dumplings. My friend and I shared superb main courses: a well prepared and very tasty soft shell crab dish and excellent short ribs."

  • "This is our 2nd time at Nectar - this time we came for our daughter's 20th birthday - wanted something special and new for her. Our party of 4 each ordered something different, and we all tried each other's entrees. Everyone loved what they had ordered and also loved what the other person had ordered. I ordered the grilled filet mignon, blue cheese potato croquette, and spinach blue cheese dumplings - amazing! The birthday girl ordered the braised short ribs, and loved them, my husband ordered a sushi platter, and our other daughter ordered the tenderloin dish. My only regret was that our son wasn't able to come to experience this gem. Well done, Nectar!"

  • "We go to Nectar as a special occasion place to dine. My husband wanted to revisit for his birthday dinner. It is a bit noisy but we have been there several times so we knew what to expect. We had the Bento plate -Potsticker varieties were delicious. The waitress was helpful in letting us know how to order if we wanted all vegetarian dishes. I had the scallops from the seasonal menu. They were large and quite filling. My husband ordered the striped bass. it too was very good and very generous. My daughter ordered two vegetarian appetizers and we were too full to finish everything. When I reserved the table I mentioned the birthday dinner. the waitress arrived with a delicious chocolate ganache which was comped. NICE"

  • ""I enjoyed the feel of this place – like an exciting place to eat and share thoughts with friends. I definitely would return to try other dishes. The shrimp rolls were tasty and the scallops were well prepared and filling. Everyone loved the appetizers. Service was friendly and informative. The drink of the day, a mango marguerita was affordable and well prepared." "

  • "My family and I (4 persons) have visited Nectar several times over the last few years, mainly for special occasions like birthdays or graduations. The food and service was always great and worth the visit. This past visit (a Friday at 7:30 PM) was a disappointment. The main dinning area music was very loud, almost concert level. I had to almost yell just so that I could be heard. The service also was below par. We waited almost a half hour to order; I had to signal my waiter to come and take the order. Ditto when we were done. Maybe someone did not come in, he seemed a bit stretched. I'd go back only because the prior visits were so enjoyable. But if the next visit is like the last, I'll find another restaurant."

  • "Yet another excellent experience - a wide variety of tastes, cuisines, mostly Asian influenced and everything on the menu is unique. love the King Kong roll and the Wok Lobster. Now that Georges is gone, this is truly the best spot on the "outer" Main Line."

  • "We have had an enjoyable dining experience each time we have gone to Nectar. I did ask for a table downstairs in my Open Table reservation special request. When I received the confirming call from Nectar I made sure to ask if they saw the request and they said they would do what they could to accomodate the request. They did and it was fine. Our waiter for extermely plesant and accomodating. We would not hestitate to come back to Nectar or recommend it to other friends or colleagues which we have done. "

  • "Went for a well needed date night. Ambiance was wonderful - upscale, modern with a decided asian feel. Service was outstanding. My wife had ordered a drink that she didn't care for. The server immediately compted it and suggested something that she really enjoyed. This was a wonderful dining experience."

  • "We asked for a quiet table for an early preplay dinner with 91 year-old mom and were seated 5 feet from the bar, where the noise made conversation impossible. A mid-meal walkabout to all areas of the restaurant confirmed that the dining areas were designed for maximum noise (is this "energy"?). Food was hit and miss, a heavy, overcooked mu shu pork that was no better than ordinary Chinese take-out fare but other dishes (Vietnamese sliders, scallops) that were as good as any of the Asian fusion items we had come to expect from our four previous visits here. "

  • "Interesting menu with lots of attractive choices. Fortunately my colleague warned me to save room for the donuts - what a great treat! I'll definitely do it again!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "The execution of meat and fish cooking was excellent. The dumplings were standard fare and too doughy. Other appetizers were good but not memorable. The sea bass was the best entrée and the beef dishes were cooked well and the omnipresent "teriyaki" sauce, albeit palatable, was overused in 3 different dishes. They have found a formula that works and are sticking too it...nothing wrong with it."
