Nectar Restaurant & Lounge
Now THAT was customer service!From the second we arrived, we were treated like royalty! Greeted by name with a friendly smile by the hostess, whisked to a table by the window where we had a beautiful view and could watch a pair of birds care for their young in a nest just a few feet away (through a large picture window), doted on my Miguel who was attentive, personable and knowledgeable, and -- finally -- dined on good portions of wonderful food -- this was a GREAT dining experience. My wife and I both chose comfort food. Her meatloaf was very tasty and the onion rings were the best she'd ever had. My macaroni and cheese with Applewood smoked bacon and roasted chicken was to die for. We'll be back as we truly appreciate being treated this well! Great evening!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMView and food are great at NectarReally enjoyed our evening at Nectar. Food is lovely and the view enhances the entire experience. The salad is generous enough to split and they don't need to be reminded to bring 2 plates...the grilled scallops were first rate and the sauce was flavorful and light. Requested extra vegetables, less rice and the chef took care with a generous helping of perfect asparagus and baby carrots. The grilled tenderloin was also very delicious, served with a flavorful reduction. Extensive wine list: some accessible wines in the $30 range. Corkage is reasonable at $15. Definitely a return to place. Only criticism-some hotel guests come into the restaurant as if it were a coffee shop; dressed perhaps too casually for the quality of the place.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Brunch 2013The ambiance was better than I expected as the online photo was limiting. The brunch options were immense, everything was fresh and tasty. The hostess staff was excellent as was the wait staff. We were given a private dining room that we didn't even request but, was most appreciated as we had three children. The views were beautiful as well. We would definitely go back again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJust Okay ReallyThe service was awesome and the view can't be beat, our appetizer was delicious, and i loved my dinner (almond crusted dover sole). my husband had the kobe beef meatloaf and it was dry (no gravy) and a little bland. We had our rehearsal dinner at Nectar 4 years earlier and returned for our anniversary. However, something from from the meal didn't agree with me and I'm a little leary about returning for dinner. But, their patio is amazing and they have a wonderful happy hour and I would definately return for that.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very pleasant meal.We had a very pleasant meal. Our first choice for wine was not available but the waiter made a recommendation and it turned out to be just right. Price was reasonable for the nice setting.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and our server was top notch. We also were seated at a very nice window table for two. The only negative was pretty much beyond Nectar's control. The party of 4 seated next to us was pretty loud, diminishing an otherwise superb experience.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is, by far, the bestThis is, by far, the best 'special occasion' brunch in the North Bay. I'm pretty sure over the last few years I've tried about all of them. The restaurant was full - but it wasn't crowded. The food was excellent. There was a great selection but it wasn't overwhelming...which was nice because the warming trays were rotated frequently and everything was nice and fresh...no solid yolks on the Eggs B! The desert was okay...I don't think they were made there. The chocolate fountain was awesome, however. Overall, outstanding. This is my new brunch spot.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good but a little priceyVery good but a little pricey for what you get.
Great outdoor dining!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningWe attended Nectar for Restaurant Week - and boy were we pleasantly surprised! From the Hostesses greeting to the last bite of dessert the experience was perfection. The set menu was absolutely delicious and our server, Lizzie, was fabulous (she really made the meal!). They were very accommodating with our little one (water cup with a straw was brought even before we requested one) - and we received a free pour for booking through Open Table. Would definitely recommend Nectar, and I would plan my meal around when Lizzie was working!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food andConsistently good food and great service. Amazing views. Love this retaurant for lady lunches, dinner before shows at the Wells Fargo Center, summer happy hour on the patio.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful experience.Another wonderful experience. We go there for special occasions and for when we want a nice quiet dining or bar experience. Everything is "very good" - the food, the service, the peace, the comfort, but the view is excellent.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were staying at the hotelWe were staying at the hotel so chose to eat at Nectar the first night rather than search for a restaurant or drink/drive. The food was so good, we came back the second night! The Kobe beef meatloaf as well as the pork loin the first night then the filet and prime rib (nice cut and perfectly medium rare). Service was great - the restaurant manager went out of his way to ensure we had a great experiance. I would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
