Chef Jared Van Camp has crafted an obsessively house-made and locally focused bill of fare. While taking influence from Italy, Spain and France, the ingredients and products are sourced exclusively from the Midwest.

The design is inspired by Villa Nellcôte, the French chateau where the Rolling Stones recorded “Exile on Main Street” in the 1970s. Between recording sessions (and bouts of debauchery), the band and their famous friends would gather over hours-long meals prepared by a chef who sourced each day’s ingredients from the local markets.

Like its namesake chateau, Nellcôte is opulent and approachable, a neighborhood restaurant wrapped in high-energy elegance. It’s where friends convene over food and drinks prepared with fresh, seasonal, house-made ingredients — including hand-milled flour — in a setting that feels special. All accompanied by a killer background soundtrack.

Wish the waitress had informed us of their M-F happy hour and specials! Otherwise, great spot and would definitely come back!

Dinner was amazing. This is my new favorite italian restaurant. I’m also vegan and my server Barbara was so helpful and nice she definitely made our experience great. Will definitely be coming back a lot.

Nellcote was gorgeous and had delicious food. Server had a soft voice and barley checked up on our table.

It was a really unfortunate dining experience, especially because I had been so excited to try Nellcote. The service was terrible. Our waitress was uneducated about the wine selection and then she never asked if enjoyed our dishes. I barely touched the one pasta dish because it was terribly sweet. We had polished the other dishes and she saw the plate with the sweet pasta was completely full and didn't ask if I enjoyed it. Clearly we would have preferred a refund or to try something else. Also, the entire dinner they were setting up a for the Saturday night DJ which was completely distracting and noisy and completely deterred from our date night. Overall our experience was unfortunate and we definitely wouldn't recommend to any of our friends.

Nice place. Good food and decor. Don’t eat in the area often so no idea on prices but it wasn’t really expensive.

Food was good - interesting preparation but not totally crazy tastes. Service was sub-par however. Our waiter (and most of the wait staff) was nowhere to be found for 10 minutes while we were looking for another drink.

Waited 15+ minutes to be greeted by the server. During this time, thankfully, the host stopped by our table several times to make sure we were settled as we waited . When the server finally arrived she didn’t apologize for the delay, especially after walking pass our table several times with no acknowledgement that we were seated. A simple, “I’ll be with you in a moment” would have been courteous. The food and drinks were great as expected but basic customer service was poor from the server. Luckily the restaurant has great hosts and table staff which saved the experience.

The food was good. The service was very poor and I felt we were being rushed all the time. I would not recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a nice dining experience. Probably eating at the bar could be OK.

Waitress was amazingly nice and knowledgeable. Food & drinks came out quickly and were both fantastic.

Overpriced food. Some of which was just downright unpleasant tasting - like the short rib goulash pasta.
A ridiculous wine list. Only seven bottles each of red and white and the cheapest bottle was over $50. I hate it when restaurants do this. Wines by the glass for 12 or $13. That is ridiculous. You can buy full bottles of most of those wines in the grocery store for that price. Draft beer was eight dollars .

The chocolate mousse dessert was not good either. You could feel the sugar crunching and your teeth.

It is definitely more than $30 or person.
