We had a great experience... At first i was a little concerned because the place was packed and they only had one guy working the entire restaurant and bar!! But, this guy handled everyone like a PRO!! He never made us feel like we had to wait and was very attentive the entire time! He was also very knowledgable on the wine list!! Will be back again soon!! Not really sure if the TV screen on the wall fits the mood of the place, but I wasn't really paying attention anything other than the great food and wine!!
Nectar has good food and wine but always has the TV or a movie projected on the wall which does not remotely go with the ambiance for a wine bar. Also, the music playing every time I go is totally random and doesn't work with the space or vibe I think they are trying to create. My advice is to turn off the TV and play better music if they want better patronage. The people I was with felt the same way.
Enjoyed the wine flights and service was good. Food we ordered was ok, not excellent (roasted root vegetables, butternut squash pizzetta, and macaroni and cheese with wild mushrooms). Not too crowded on a Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
Great bites and a wonderful wine list. The wine flights are fun!
My boyfriend and I came to Nectar for our 3-year anniversary, and they pulled out all the stops!
The hosts and servers recognized us as soon as we came in, they listened to the comments I'd left in the reservation and tailored service specifically to us, planning a special wine and cheese flight followed by delicious entrees and dessert.
We were so impressed by the wines and the servers' in-depth knowledge on each.
We had an amazing time, and would definitely recommend Nectar for your next special occasion!
We went there on a Saturday night for a birthday celebration this place was very cute a the server were great. Right as you sit down the bring you water and tell you about different wines.
I discovered this place over a year ago and have now been there 4-5 times. I most recently took my cousin and we had a very enjoyable meal along with our creative wine flights. It was a Tuesday night so it was not particularly busy, probably about a dozen people in the place. Service was very good and the wine and food came quickly once ordered. We were busy talking so time passed but we were appropriately checked in on several times.
This is a great place to take a date, hang with friends or just go by yourself for some good food and wine.
Decent prices for a good wine bar
Great ambiance. Service staff were friendly and welcoming! We enjoyed wine, cheese and salami, perfect place for it. Will definitely be back and hope we can get the comfy couches!
This little wine bar in the Marina neighborhood deserves some attention. We had found other reviews online that raved about the food and they were right. We had trouble making choices from a short but very interesting menu. We finally started with the burratta and an arugula salad. The Burratta was accompanied by a simple salad and prosciutto - simple but excellent. The arugula salad included pears, sour cherries, and feta and was dressed perfectly. But the star of our meal was the grilled cheese with guacamole, bacon, and gouda. We loved it.
As it happened we started comparing notes with the guests as the next table - they loved the cured salmon.
Be aware this is a wine bar with food so the seating is very casual - loungy.
Was here w/ a bachelorette party on Sat. night around 8:30pm & the place was packed to the seams & VERY loud. Luckily, towards the back of the restaurant, there are some tables where our group was seated. A tad more quiet, at least enough so we could talk w/ each other. The wine list was AWESOME! We did the bubble flight & tried a few others, unfortunately I've forgotten the names at the moment, but all very nice. We shared a few items from the dinner menu, flat breads, truffle mac n' cheese, grilled avocado & prosciutto sandwich & the arugula salad. All were very tasty- especially the grilled avocado & prosciutto sandwich. Recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a vibrant place to enjoy a nice glass & tasty food w/ friends!
We really enjoyed our evening at NECTAR. Seated just at the end of 'happy hour' which is quite a bargin for the excellent wine and starters. Totally satisfied with the entire menu choices esp. the melt-in-your-mouth gnocchi. Will return soon to work through other items on the menu we missed.
Loved the Happy Hour at Nectar! The appetizers were great and so was the wine selection.
Excelent wines and light meals. Very nice ambience for wine-lovers. Super-friendly staff. Absolutely loved it.
This wine bar is nearby the Cow Hollow Hotel and is located off of Chestnut St. in the Marina area. I had a trio of bubbly and it was good. I made reservations at 8 pm. This tiny establishment was full but they did reserve a table for us in the back. Had I not had a voucher from Bllomspot we would have arrived at happy hour but we had to go after happy hour which ends at 7pm. The two entres we split (Mac n Cheese and pizza) was plenty of food for all of us to enjoy. The prices are a tad steep but if you are just a couple it should not be too bad. With the food, my bubbly and one non-alcoholic drink I ended up paying an extra twenty dollars over my voucher (worth forty dollars). They did include 20 percent for the tip on the checThos
