Great food. Service at the table was excellent. Unfortunately, we had an unpleasant experience at the bar prior to being seated. We ordered an appetizer & a bottle of wine. A female bartender attending to us was unfriendly & seemed bothered. This was prior to the Friday dinner rush at 5:30p so there is no excuse for the poor service at the bar. When we closed out the bar tab, we were charged $85 for the bottle of Rose which was listed as $55 on the wine list. The bartender was irritated that we asked for the correction. (Mistake or intentional $30 upcharge at the bar?) But I will return as the food was excellent as was the table service. I will skip the bar though.

Its a shame that a restaurant with such local prominence, gorgeous decor, vast wine list and interesting menu had such poor all around service. It’s 100% the managers fault. People need to be taught hospitality and a restaurant at this price point should not have service worse than your local TGI Friday’s.

Really liked unique cuisine. My group is fussy- no one agrees on what to eat. However, there were mild dishy, spicy dishes, hearty dishes... everyone was happy. I got the red curry shrimp. I is a bit pricey- but good food is right?- really nice- great service- we will go back soon. Julia was our server- wonderful and attentive. Thanks for a great experience.

Nectar is great for special occasions. Bartenders are top notch—always willing to build a custom recipe. Our waiter, Bob is the best in town and always helps make our occasion special. Nice ambiance, always able to talk, superb food. Fast, friendly valet parkers. Nectar is the total package. Thank you!

Crowded, overpriced and loud. Food is rather good but not good enough to charge as much as they do. Valet got very snotty with us. Service was good. Overall very forgettable.

Horrible service, mediocre food. Screaming, disruptive child at table next to us that ruined the dining experience for every table in the main dining room. Parents and staff did nothing. Will not go back, this place is beat. Room has not been updated since it opened and it feels like a time warp.

This is a great restaurant - food, service and design but I will not be going back. I have been to the restaurant a couple of times and each time the restaurant is so NOISY that you cannot hear the person next to you. The tables are crowded together which makes for more noise. As a professional hospitality designer there are many different ways to cut down on the noise level and I suggest that the owners make a concerted effort to do that - the high ceiling is a wonderful element but it is the largest offender of the noise - creating either custom lighting fixtures that hold some acoustical value is one way, also to put strategic and aesthetically pleasing dividers between some of the booth seating is another element to cut down the noise - I do not think any of this would jeopardize or alter the innovative design of the restaurant.

We used Open Table to make the reservation. I received a confirmation call in the morning prior to our seating to confirm. We arrived 5 minutes early. However, we waited 45 minutes to be seated. We were seated after my husband went to the hostess desk to inquire. The host (wearing a ridiculous wide tie with ugly hearts on it) said he did not have us in the system although he handed us a buzzer and had my name on the reservation list. This starts the evening off on the wrong foot after a customer makes it for the reservation on time.

I’ll have to say that after dining at Nectar for over 6 years and being satisfied every time, this last experience was not very good. The restaurant has made a shift to a very loud and club like atmosphere, but I could look past this. My wife and I ordered two appetizers, the curry chicken dumplings and the mango roll. The roll was good, but over priced for what basically amounted to a shrimp tempura roll, and the dumplings were nothing amazing.
Our entrees came, and this is where I became extremely dissatisfied. My wife got the Valentine’s Day special scallops that were ok, but again not a Home Run. They came out luke warm. Flavor was good, but missed on overall presentation.
I ordered the shrimp red curry dish. I have to say for being such a highly rated restaurant, this meal was extremely lack luster, and they should be ashamed to charge what they did for this meal, when my
Local Chinese or Thai place could serve me something way better for half price. The dish came out warm at best, with the sauce already starting to congeal back to a gelatinous state, the noodle base was hard as a Rock and under seasoned, and the vegetable in the curry that were used to accentuate the plate were clearly par cooked prior to use and sat out before they were tossed in this sauce to bring back to life.
As a faithful customer I am really disappointed by this experience. My waitress was ok, but the fact that the bus boys whisk everything away so quickly, my waitress didn’t even ask one time how my meal was, because it was already gone.
I hope you figure it out Nectar, you’ve changed and it isn’t for the good

Our experience was great until I realized our server had put my food order in wrong. I ordered from the seasonal specials and read the name of the order and pointed to it as well. Instead of a nice meal, I was brought a sushi roll (after already eating sushi as an appetizer) and thought maybe I misunderstood what I had ordered since it was listed as seasonal and not with the other rolls on the menu. When our server finally came back about 45 minutes after we had received our food, I asked about what I had ordered and she then realized she had given me the wrong item and remembered me pointing to what I wanted. At that point, we had been there a couple hours and were ready to leave. We were offered a complimentary dessert, but needless to say, I left feeling very unsatisfied.
