    Our dinner was very nice. Our reservation was at 6:30. It was not too busy when we go there. Our food came out very quickly. Unfortunately as it got busier the staff was not checking in as often. We asked for something to be wrapped up to go an no one ever came over. We waited for a period of time and ended up leaving. We also had to ask for more water because we would run out. Overall the meal was amazing. It was ashame that it got so busy they could not continue the excellent service we had at the beginning of our night.

    Outstanding service. My salmon was great as were the soft shell crabs my wife had. Quite a crowd for a Monday night. On reservation I did note it was our 42 wedding anniversary. Would have been nice had they wished us a Happy 42nd. Still a great place.

    We have dined at Nectar several times and it has always been fantastic. The sushi is so fresh - it just melts in your mouth. The seasonal specialties offer some unique options and were very tasty. Scallops and risotto was a big winner. I would definitely recommend.

    Ate here about a month ago with my family and thoroughly enjoyed it. Had to be in Berwyn on business by myself and was tempted to return. Glad I did. There was not a sour note among my choices. Cocktails are innovative and refreshing, emphasizing local fruit where possible. Wines by the glass also nicely selected. I can see dining here any time I'm in the area!

    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.

    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.

    Nectar remains a favorite place for either a lunch with friends or to entertain guests for an elegant evening. Food as always creative, well prepared and delicious. My only concern is that some updating is badly needed. Our menus were stained which raises questions regarding attention to detail. Furthermore, the carpets are very much in need of a steam cleaning. Please bring back the luster.

    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.

    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.
