  • "We hosted a surprise birthday at Nomad and the staff was incredible - helping us plan ahead of time (finding room out of view of the entrance, coordinating with the hostess about what I'd tell her when he arrived, if balloons and cake were allowed) and during the party. They even alerted the guests when bringing our friend back to the room! They let us drop off a cake an hour early so we didn't have to carry it while looking for balloons, they accommodated splitting the check in an awkward way, and gave us candles for the cake. The food was good, the atmosphere very nice. Highly recommended and very happy!"

  • "We went to Nomad for my boyfriend's birthday. To be honest, it was a last minute booking since I dropped the ball and picked something way to girly and chic for him and his macho friends. We booked for a party of 10 about an hour before arriving. It wasn't very crowded for a Saturday night, and we had this awesome table that was in a little nook toward the back - a long booth with neat tapestries hanging over the little outcove it was situated in. The food was great - not quite picture worthy as it was more Moraccan "comfort food" than food that is plated to wow, but all the same delicious. Service was wonderful - our waiter recommended a Moraccan Syrah that was the perfect compliment to dinner. I would absolutely recommend this spot!"

  • "The food is excellent! We went as a group and our group generally has different tastes and everyone loved the food. We stuck to mostly seafood, grilled shrimp, fish of the day, and calamari. Then we had the dips and grilled chicken wish spinach The big but is the hostess! We were a group 8 and with reservations at 6 pm. Not one did she mention before 7:45 pm that she needed the table at 8 pm for another party and we hadn't even order our entrees yet. Thankfully, the wait staff was friendly to let us finish our meal."

  • "I was blown away by the staff's hospitality and the succulent food. The wait staff was extremely attentive. The main courses were out of this world extraordinary. I recommend the lamb shank. It was so juicy and tender that it fell off the bone. We also had branzino which melted in your mouth. The dessert exploded with flavor. They brought a chocolate fondant with a liquid chocolate and raspberry center and we had Moraccan mint tea to finish off our night. We told the manager how amazing the food was and she thanked us with a round of Port! They really care about their customers. I'm really happy that I gave a new place a try. I will return to Nomad! I can't wait to try more items on the menu."

  • "The decor was nice and the maitre'd was nice as well. Our waiter committed my biggest pet peeve in a restaurant which is to only look at the other person (male) when explaining the specials. Sangria was watered down. It was probably sitting in the container with ice. Why? The duck pastilla was crispy on the outside which was nice but had no flavor and a mushy texture inside. Oysters were pump and pretty good. My lamb tagine was tender with large pieces of prunes. Overall a tasty dish and it came with a side of couscous. My friend order a couscous dish with an assortments of meats on top. Overall, the meats were overcooked and dry. I will definitely not be coming back. Even with the 30% discount we had, I thought we paid too much."

  • "No greeting at the door. Had to wait 7 minutes before hostess acknowledged us. Noise extremely loud and interfered with conversation. Water never refilled, bread not brought to table. Food only average. Would not recommend"

  • "As many people have written on chowhound and yelp the chicken for 2 is very good. The desserts are amazing. We ordered 4 desserts for the 3 of us and cleaned each of the plates."

  • "It's a shame this restaurant is so poorly run (or hired really slow and non-adaptable staff). The food is great and the drinks are good, but our experience overall was painful because of the maitre d' and the painfully slow service!! We waited for about 30-40 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. The maitre d' had an exceptionally hard time figuring out where to seat us and was unpleasant to deal with. She seemed overwhelmed for her job. We waited another 30 minutes to 45 minutes to even get our drinks. Restaurants in New York should be able to figure this out... your competitors do... I can't bring a group here again, it disrupted the flow of the evening too much."

  • "We had a family issue and had to leave mid-meal so perspective is a little skewed. First, I am from out of town. There wasn't much wrong with this place. I just feel like there are better spots in NYC. So I probably won't go back. That being said, if I lived here, it is reasonably priced and you get more than you pay for. Either way, you won't be upset about giving it a try."

  • "This place took us by surprise. The waitstaff were very attentive, informative and helpful. The food was excellent and the prices were quite reasonable. Highly recommend it...am thinking about when I can get back there!"

  • "Very helpful waiter. Excellent meat dishes. The merguez sausage and the nomad trip of dips are delicious. I wish they had more authentic seating but I understand that not everyone wants to sit on the floor! They could improve their cocktail list but the wines are all great."

  • "We found this place because someone had recommended NoMad, a trendy new place. When we looked, we found Nomad as well. Much more reasonable price range. Form 4 to 7, blue point oysters for $1 apiece!!!!!! There were six of us and we had 3 dozen! Then duck pastilla, array of dips/spreads,lentil soup,grape leaves stuffed with cheese and on and on. Then lamb tagine, fresh branzino,chicken pastillas. Most reasonable wine list in NYC, not extensive, but Lobster Point SB from NZ, and a lovely Malbec, for $35 or so per bottle. Wonderful attentive service. Definitely on the dinner with good friends/foodies list."

  • "We came to Nomad at the recommendation of the New York Theater Workshop a suggestion among other neighborhood spots for pre-theater dining. A cozy place with friendly service on a bitter cold early January night. The Cabernet recommended to my wife by our hostess was full-bodied and delicious. I had a wonderful winter porter. Our beet and sliced orange salad was so-so. Delicious beets, but the oranges had been marinated in something with a sharp, unpleasant taste that ruined an otherwise very good salad. Lentil soup was good, not great. Both of us ordered sea bass--a fillet and whole fish version which was very good. The ambiance is good, with an interesting vibe. Worth a stop if you're in the hood but not a special trip."

  • "Possibly a busy restaurant's worst nightmare - a group of almost 30 people and for a surprise party!? I stressed for my guests to arrive ON TIME, albeit a little earlier than our reservation. Of course, we had some stragglers but I arrived with the surprise guest 5 minutes past our reservation with all of the party seated and ready! The hostess and the servers were great, but I must call out the hostess. She was so excited for my surprise and she was very accommodating for my guests as they waited for my arrival. She also cunningly remembered my name (as I had called earlier) and only brought two menus as if it were a romantic dinner for two in the back room. The food was delicious with so many amazing options! I will be returning!"

  • "Great atmosphere here. Halfway through our dinner they stopped playing Michael Buble and the live music began. They were a great trio. all of the staff were very very diligent. This is great if you are on your way to something else but we wanted to enjoy the scene there a bit and felt rushed. The food had some great taste but lacked balance. I felt like most of it tasted like something I could make at home with some Moroccan flair. I wish it was a little heavier on the tastebuds. All of our food was good. All of the staff were super friendly."

  • "Myself and a party of 20 booked a late lunch on Sunday the 15th of Dec, 2013. The staff was very patient and the food was good. It is hard to serve that large of a party. The food came out in a timely manner. I wouldn't make a special trip but its a good place if you are going to the theatre downtown."

  • "Lamb Tajine! I was in love with the menu before I ordered. The muhmara (sp?) dip was a major surprised. I had the lamb tajine and my bf had the steak frites. Everything was delicious, but my tajine took the plate. The decor was nice, and the restaurant is larger than I expected. I was just a little miffed that sat us all the way in the back, and that it wreaked of bleach. Luckily the kind server and the delicious food made up for it."

  • "We dined at the children's hour (quiet all but guaranteed) and enjoyed delicious, moderately priced Med fare in the front window. Service is solicitous, though never obtrusive, and the $7 Montepulciano better than much higher priced glasses elsewhere."

  • "Though not necessarily rave-provoking, Nomad is a very good, solid, reliable restaurant with a completely adequate regular menu and almost always a few good specials. It bustles, and it's welcoming. Very nice restaurant to have in the neighborhood..."

  • "I came here with my a big group of friends for my birthday. We arrived half an hour before our reservation but were seated immediately. The wait staff & hostess are incredibly knowledgeable and their service is excellent. The low lighting and cushioned seating against the wall made the restaurant feel cozy and comfortable. The only thing that was a little bit of a disappointment was my entree, but that's probably because I was expecting something completely different than was described on the menu. Their red sangria is delicious and they're not stingy about the size of their pitcher like some restaurants. Overall a great restaurant. Would definitely come here again, but probably order something more to my taste."
