We loved the restaurant and everything about it - except the women at the hostess stand. Our reservation was for 6:00pm - 3 out of 4 of us were at the restaurant yet they refused to seat us. Not until the last person arrived - 15 minutes later. I found this ridiculous!! Maybe someone can talk to these women so you're not losing good customer over it.

Nectar is always great! From their pumpkin soup to their sushi rolls (mango roll and spicy tuna!) to their Mongolian beef and after dinner donuts.

The bartender was fantastic - she made great recommendations, gave us our space, but jumped in if she saw us looking like we needed help. The edamame dumplings (a favorite) and burrata starters our highly recommended. Sushi is always fresh and delicious as were the Blood Orange Martinis....

My friend and I celebrated her birthday at Nectar last night. It was wonderful. All staff were masked, professional and helpful. Spring rolls were amazing. And we both loved the lobster pad Thai. We had drinks and dessert as well. Good space between the seated tables.

Nectar never disappoints. This restaurant is our go to because of how consistently good it is. From the owner greeting us when we come in, to the attentiveness of the servers, our Sat night out was stellar, as always.

Returned from a 3 year hiatus accompanied by a friend dining for her 1st time. Enjoyed Nectar Martini and Asian Manhatten both unique and worthy of a 2nd. The Pumpkin soup was smooth, soft, well pureed with subtle flavor with dollop of crispy goat cheese in center. My guest enjoyed the Sushi Bento for Two, as entree, by herself, for one. The Rack of Lamb was meaty, flavorful with Chanterelle Mushroom & Truffle brown sauce and I would order again. The Nectar Chocolate Mousse Torte with Raspberry Coulis was a worthy finish.

Outstanding service. They were short staffed but our server, Bob and the bartender were working very hard with smiles under their masks. We got 2 phenomenal appetizers. The edamame dumplings are mouthwatering. Drinks were perfect. Excellent wine selection. Pad Thai and fried rice were also delicious. Sushi was a miss…had a roll with crab and it was very fishy. Donuts are a must have! We enjoyed our experience from top to bottom despite the fishy sushi roll. We will be back!

Early dinner on the day before Christmas Eve. Excellent service. The mango ginger martini never disappoints. The short ribs were good, but the bernaise was stellar. Also the bouche de Noël was brilliant.

Food was amazing, we did 3 different apps along with our dinner order and the foie gras was by far the star of the whole meal! (I wish I got a picture) We come from the kutztown area and will take the drive again and again for this place on date nights.
