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.

Nectar used to be my go to special occasion restaurant. The past few times was disappointing. Is it going downhill?

The food came out so fast I think they must have it precooked. Our pork Dumplings were cool yet they fell apart as if they were overcooked. The edamame was delicious. Our groups 5 entree choices came out minutes after ordering and were lukewarm. The sashimi was very good.

Good service from our server but they tried too often to clear our plates.

Overall disappointing.

Started with calamari and edamame - both were delicious. Then had the king kong roll and a seared tuna roll. The seared tuna roll was perfect; I loved every bite. The king kong roll (lobster and filet) was not my favorite. The pieces of tuna were cut so thick that it was difficult to chew. Would have preferred the pieces to be thinner, which would also make the filet seem more tender as that was also difficult to chew - not sure it was actually filet. Overall was a great experience and staff was on top of their game giving us everything we need without being noticed; which I love! Will be back.

Met friends we hadn't seen for years. We all loved our dinners. The edamame dumplings were delicious as was the wild mushroom pad Thai.
Great for vegetarians. On our reservation we requested a quiet table and they gave us a perfect spot curtained off, private and quiet.

A great dining experience!

I didn't know the location was valet only, so I went into a mini-panic because I never carry cash. The valet people were super friendly and funny. Luckily I was able to get couple of dollars for the valet. Kevin our waiter was attentive enough, he came around just enough for us to feel taken care of but not bothered. I had the mango roll, it was good, not the best sushi I've ever had but a lot better then other locations. The drinks were delicious and the desert, mint brownie ice-cream, was okay. Nothing special. I would describe the atmosphere as cozy and warm. I'd go again to give other items on the menu a try.

Solid experience, service was a little rushed at first with 4 dishes coming out at once, would have preferred to enjoy the 2 orders of foie gras and then the two orders of pork buns separately. Foie gras should be enjoyed slowly and then the next course should then follow once we finished. This way the foie doesn’t get cold before you can enjoy It to the fullest. Drinks were excellent, while my Roasted stripe bass was not very good. I was given a free drink as a consolation. I also wound up ordering another order of the foie gras since I was still a tad hungry. Also ordered multiple sushi courses which all were very good. Finished with the donuts. Overall a good experience for New Year’s Eve. With tip the dinner wound up being a 280 dollar meal for two. Only gripe I could say is, that if a customer only takes one bite out of their entree, a free 12 dollar drink isn’t proper consolation over a 28 dollar dish, which was still on the bill. I didn’t want to make a fuss because I enjoyed the experience and wanted to ring in 2018 in a positive way. Overall I had a good time and will be back, as this is my favorite place to celebrate special occasions.

Been more than a year since my wife and I last visited Nectar - we will be back a deal sooner next time round. Quite and exceptional range of food types - more than one expects even in "Asian fusion". We were there early evening on New Year's Eve - the place was very busy. The wait staff was wonderfully well organized - smooth and very efficient. The food was very good indeed and we took the opportunity to get away from traditional winter/Holiday food. Cold dishes and hot were equally good and equally well served.

I am a New Yorker and visit Nectar when I am staying in the area. This place is magnificent to say the least! The chef is gifted, the menu and offerings are delicious. All in a vibrant and beautiful space that is pleasing to the eye. It has BIG CITY flare in a small town. You simply must visit, enjoy, and brag about it.
