We came to celebrate my mom's 96th birthday. Staff was very accommodating. We had requested outdoor seating, which they were able to arrange. The menu is limited, but we all found something we liked. Appetizers were great. They had a very special dessert for mom. The server offered to take our photo at the end of our celebration.

Nice warm day on the patio with a pretty view. Peaceful and quiet with tasty food.

The food was very good, however the service was awful!
We had to keep asking for water. It took 1/2 hour to even get waited on,
and the restaurant was not busy at all. Maybe 8-10 people inside with two waiters. There was a separate waiter for outside.
I had noted when I made the reservation that it was our 36th wedding anniversary- and had asked for a specific table- not only did we not get a window table, they did not even acknowledge our anniversary.
I can think of at least two other restaurants in Santa Rosa - that really make you feel special on an anniversary or birthday (La Gare and John Ash).
We were really disappointed and won't be back.

I love this place for the outdoor ambiance not necessarily the quality of the good.

A new waiter needed some reminders for our requests. Service was very slow, because most people were outside on the patio. They have heaters, but there is always a wind, which cools off the food and the guests.

We meet my mom here about once a month for breakfast. the food is great, service is pleasant and the view in wonderful. It is comfortable and easy access for her in her wheelchair. We have also had our family Xmas breakfasts here a couple times. Really great place.

Came around noon on a Monday and there were very few people in the restaurant, however 75% of the tables were still dirty. We wanted to sit outside, but there was not a clean table outside even though no one was sitting outside. Overall, the restaurant appeared to have aged substantially. We decided to just have mac and cheese (which was OK) as the ambience was not very pleasant for my wife and I to join. Service to us was good for a hotel restaurant, but since there were only 2-3 tables seated this was expected. This restaurant has great potential, but needs some work.

Food was not equal to the dinner prices as compared with other local restaurants charging similar prices.
Nice view for tourists and the noise level is very low.
Service was excellent.

Changed the menu - for the worse! I've dined at Nectar probably 50 times over the course of the past 8 years or so. The view can't be beat, but initially the food was mediocre. Not really local - more of what you would expect from a chain hotel's captive diner. Then it got pretty good - they started focusing on their wine list and pairing food, and everything improved. This last time was abysmal. The cheese plate was abysmal with inappropriate crackers served and a few crostini. The spinach dip was mediocre. The crab cakes were awful (with parts of plastic from what we surmised was the container that kept the sauce). The frito misto was average. To top it all off, the service was poor - especially when we were waiting for our check at the end of an otherwise awful evening. It's going to be a while before I go back - hopefully they change the menu again to reflect wine country cuisine.
