Nathalie's at Overlook Farms is a farm-to-table restaurant that specializes in healthy American cuisine. It sources its meat and produce from its own farm and from local farmers. The restaurant's dining area is casual and elegant. Nathalie's also hosts live entertainment every night and boasts an extensive selection of cocktails, wines and absinthe for guests to enjoy.
Begin the meal with a hot bowl of French onion soup or an appetizer like duck wontons, smoked chicken confit, lamb meatballs or seared diver scallops. Main course options at Nathalie's include dishes like lamb hash, cottage pie, shrimp and grits and the restaurant's signature grass-fed burger. The restaurant also offers a variety of vegetarian and vegan options. End the meal with a sweet dessert like panna cotta, green tea ice cream or blueberry galette.
Enjoyed a wonderful meal and fantastic service. It is sad Nathalie's is closing do we wanted to be there on the last day to show our appreciation. We plan to visit Overlok in Clarksville.
I so wanted this visit to be special but now I understand why the restaurant closed. The bones were there for a great dining experience, the building is interesting ; the first floor is tastefully decorated; staff were very welcoming and friendly; and, the band was good. As for the food, when you're party has six dishes and water makes the top three, there's a problem.
Loved Nathalie's so much the first time for a Valentine dinner, that I planned my future wedding reception upstairs, when the time would come. And then 1 1/2 years later, Nathalie's catered an over the top exquisite reception for us. Best find ever!
The service was average and the atmosphere was interesting. My lamb entrée lacked flavor, was on the rubbery side and wasn't lean. I didn't complain about it but was disappointed. My wife ordered the house merlot and we later found out while reading the bill that it was $16. The waiter should have told us the price was that high before accepting her order. That is higher than most of the mixed drinks on the menu. When my wife told him that he should have told us the price, his response was, "I apologize."
The experience (food + service + atmosphere) was nice. I'm glad we went, it's not at the top of my list to run back. Do not read that as negative, there are just a lot of places on my list to go to next.
Ambience is great. Was very quiet where we were seated and we appreciated that as we had two hard of hearing guests. The menu has changed and it did not have as many good looking choices as on previous visits. The service was excellent and the food was nicely prepared and presented with the exception of the french fries with the lamb. They were a bit much to look at even across the table.
Nathalie's was truly exceptional. Every dish was well presented and well timed. Our server was professional. A nice mix of Jazz played until the band began. We were offered a complimentary salmon ceviche amuse-bouche. My companion stated the French Onion Soup rivaled those in Paris. I shared my first course of Pork Belly with Pickled Vegetables because it was too abundant and too delicious to keep to myself. We shared a Green Salad to offset the decadence of the previous course. My companion enjoyed the Braised Beef with Mashed Potatoes and I, the Trout in a Bourbon Pecan Sauce with Salad. The bourbon was noticeable but not overwhelming and the pecans a lovely and tasty addition to the generous sized trout. My compliments to the chef and to Nathalie's...we shall return.
The wait staff are enthusiastic but poorly trained. This makes it difficult to enjoy the meal.
Beautiful setting but inconsistent portion sizes, poor service--friendly but had to be asked for daily offerings...failed to take one order from group/removed dishes as diners finished rather than waiting for entire table to finish. An informed server could have warned us that some plates were filled with food and other main courses featured a few lonely items on a plate. We also waited over 20 minutes for dessert. Disappointing.
Now that we are empty nesters, we are exploring the restaurants in St. Louis, starting with Farm to Table. This meal was excellent and worth our drive downtown in a downpour. Highly recommend the Brussel sprout appetizer. The mushroom salad was our favorite (I had the bib salad) and the chicken Nathalie was wonderful. Liked it better than the Cottage Pie. Wonderful band played too.
