A word from Nourish Restaurant
We work hard to provide our customers with a great selection of food from local and regional farms during the New England growing season. We want to know not just how our food is grown but who is growing it. We juggle purchasing organic, local produce, cheeses and meats with some conventional alternatives because we are also aware of the importance of maintaining reasonable prices so we can welcome a diverse community to our table. We look forward to welcoming you to our family-owned restaurant.

Nourish Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Very nourishing!
    CBS3
    Dined on 10/4/2012
    Perfect for our group of 7 celebrating together. Menu met all of our cuisine preferences. Something for meat eaters, fish lovers, vegetarians and children. Food was delicious with nice Washington wine and good beer. Service was friendly and accommodating. Ambience is casual and interesting. Recommended it to relatives and friends who also enjoyed their meals and visit. Very nourishing when we needed it the most!

    We had brunch and it was quite good. An omelette with salmon and a nice dil-dream sauce was quite a good combination. The cinnamon scone was a cakey-style scone, fresh and also good. The chipotle chicken salad had lots of chicken, with corn and beans, in a creamy chipotle sauce, on greens. In the sparsely-populated Lexington-Concord restaurant scene, this is a good find.

    It was very quiet on a summer Thursday night, with only a few inside tables occupied - most diners were on the front patio - but the food was very good and the portion size just right. The wine list offered some interesting new options. We will definitely be going back.

    Nourish used to be one of our favorites restaurants, nice atmosphere and very good food with exceptional care taken for people with special dietary needs. However, the last couple times we're visited the food has been overcooked, service has been slow and the staff did not seem to pay attentions to details. We'll give it another try but if things don't improve we'll won't be dining there anymore.

    Eh. Odd layout - very higgledy piggledy, with tables at odd but close angles to each other (no private conversations here). Funky smell (musty/needs a good cleaning), off putting. Probably improved if you sit outside (not an option with our rainy day). Food was fine - neither here nor there. So convenient, yet unlikely to go back. Server was sweet, though.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/15/2012
    This is a nice little restaurant in Lexington center. They have a varied menu -- as their website points out, sometimes you want to eat healthy, and sometimes you just want a burger -- and are attentive to food allergies / dietary idiosyncracies. Friendly service. Price is reasonable. We plan to go back there.

    Nourish is a great, locally sourced spot for lunch or dinner. It is uber kid friendly, and the staff is always accommodating of any food allergies/requests. Although the prices are higher than chain restaurants, that is to be expected because they get much of their food from local farms and sources. Overall great value.

    First off, this place is a a great place to go for any occasion. It has an amazing menu with great vegetarian options, food is locally sourced and/or sustainable. I am not a vegetarian, however my friend that is loves this place. Their meat and fish options are wonderful. The scenic view is of the historic Lexington, MA downtown, which is such a cute, quiet town. I enjoy their wine/beer list since most is local and from ecofriendly suppliers. Nourish does provide a kid's menu and this place is okay to bring kids too, but the options are limited. They have a lovely outdoor seating area. The serivce that I've received the times I was here was charming and of high quality.

    to be honest, we go here because we live in walking distance. also because it is kid-friendly. the menu has a nice combination of interesting specials and some good staples. their burgers are quite good, but they have real entrees also. kids menu is limited, but so are my kids' palate, so no problem there. and my kids like the food. we've had wait staff ranging from average to (recently) other-the-top friendly, helpful, and attentive. the scene changes a bit later in the evenings, at least on weekends when they have live music. the place seems to liven-up a bit, but i have young kids, so i can't really say what it's like after 21:00. lexington center is a good place to spend an evening - theater, concerts, street

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 5/23/2012
    Interesting options for organic food. I had the OMC Burger (Onion, Mushrooms, and Cheddar), which was well prepared and delicious. My companions had dishes ranging from salads to pastas, all seemingly healthier twists on classic "pub fare." Still, the windows opening up to Lexington's street and clean presentation of the food made for an atmosphere that seemed more upscale than just that. Unfortunately, service was not great, and our group ended up serving ourselves water from the pitcher left unattended at the service station many times.

  • Mother's Day Disappointment
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    We visited with a group of eight on Mother's Day. Overall this visit was disappointing. We were seated right away with our reservations, but it appeared there were problems in the kitchen as it took a long time for food to arrive, and it sounded like other tables were having the same issue. Despite our seating time of 5:45pm the kitchen was out of one appetizer, two entrees and asparagus. The asparagus was a problem since it was an integral part of one dish and the side vegetable for another. They didn't tell us they were out f asparagus until our food came out. This is our fourth visit to Nourish, the other 3 were wonderful, but this one was a disappointing chance to bring our parents to a place we had raved about previously.

    I love Lexington and organic food, so I was super excited to try Nourish. The ambiance in the restaurant is great. We loved the bar, along with the relaxing live music. I got the turkey burger with sweet potato fries. The turkey burger was seasoned perfectly, and juicy. I really enjoyed it. The sweet potato fries on the other hand were extremely disappointing. They were soggy, bland, and tasted frozen. I sure hope they were not!! I looked around and many of the other dishes coming out looked great.

    I first went to Nourish the weekend before with friends to enjoy an after dinner drink and some appetizers. I was delighted by the atmosphere during that visit, and impressed with their philosophy about food. I went back with friends a week later to hear a small band perform (50/50)- they were great, and perfect for the setting - not too loud, and good song list!). Our server, Kelsey, was very attentive and a joy! All-in-all I LOVE this place and will be coming back with my friends soon. I can't wait to see what it's like when the weather is warmer, and you can be seated outside!

    Overall the food was extremely salty. My friend ordered the meatloaf. It was very very dry, and very very salty. I ordered the scallops, which were cooked well,but again, too much salt. We both had sides of carrot/cabbage, which were inedible, due to the salt and the mashed potatoes were pasty and not appealing at all. The only good part of the meal was the hummus, as appetizer. This was my second bad experience at Nourish. Sorry but I will not be going back.

    Food was terrible, bland and unimaginative. Service was awkward at best. Only went there because kids eat free on Mondays and Tuesdays, but apparently they stopped that promotion without announcing it. Cost almost 100 dollars which is atrocious. Would never step foot in that establishment again.
