Being one of my favorite restaurants, I was disappointed when the pork bao buns were inedible and the appetizers came out cold like they have been sitting out.

Very nice restaurant- ambiance and service was very good. Some dishes were very good. Others were decent but not as good as one might perhaps anticipate for the price point.

Excellent food, as always. Waiters know the menu well, but they were too busy. It took a long time to get the check and pay.

This is my first time at Nectar and it was a great experience. The food and atmosphere was all together amazing and our waiter was outstanding. I had some of the best fried rice, and tried a few new things to make at home! I will definitely be back!

I had been here when it first opened years ago and it was very good. Now it’s awful... the food had zero taste and was of poor quality. The place also felt dirty. I would stay away.

We’re glad Nectar is back in action. Indoors is much more interesting than outdoors — food was good, but overpriced. The valet parking is a nice touch. Anyway, we are glad to see Nectar is serving in the restaurant instead of just takeout, and will continue to support this establishment.

We were seated upstairs where music was too loud. Eventually that was addressed. Big disappointment was my favorite dish sea bass was removed from menu and for me the remaining entrees were not that interesting We also thought the mark up on wine was very high.

Edemame dumplings were so good! We have several courses but that one stood out to me. Our server was very nice and attentive. We loved that desserts were made in house. The lemon dessert was the best one, we ordered them all 😂

It's been a while since we've been to Nectar, and the food was as consistently delicious as ever. Had some great cocktails and enjoyed the outdoor scene which felt lovely and lively! Edamame dumplings never disappoint and the sushi is fresh and so good. We also can never resist the lobster pad thai for the table. It feels SO good to be back out and Nectar is always one of our favorites!

We went for a Mother's Day dinner, and understandably it was very crowded. However, we were seated close to our reservation time, which was great. The cocktails are fantastic, especially the grapefruit lychee martini! The food was very good. Our only disappointment with the food is that two people at our table ordered a spicy dish, but asked that the spice level be reduced somewhat. I'm not sure if there was a miscommunication between the waiter and our table, or between the waiter and the kitchen, but the food came out with absolutely no spice at all. While it was still delicious, it was disappointing that the flavor was compromised somewhat.

First time back since they reopened indoor seating. I think they were a bit short staffed as service (especially drink service) was slower than in the past. The food was delicious as always and it was a great way to celebrate Mother's day.

Mothers Day brunch/lunch was the usual menu with one addition in each course. I miss the all out brunch from several years back - please bring that menu back.
That being said: Nectar is our favorite local restaurant. We always enjoy our experience there. It’s good to be inside again😊
