Dining out for my sister’s Birthday and we wanted to try a new place. We were pleasantly surprised, it is Restaurant Week! The Restaurant Week menú at Nest includes a NY Strip and Duck Quarters. Both were delicious and our server, Leslie, was fantastic! We will definitely return.

Never heard of Nest until it showed up on Newport News Restaurant Week participating restaurants. What an adorable little restaurant. It's small and cozy tucked into the Kiln Creek Golf Club; food was AMAZING. Couldn't decide to eat off special menu or regular menu, so I'll have to go back for the Seafood Paella. I had the blacked (lightly) grouper with gritcakes with seafood velute (on regular menu). It was soooo good: tender, cooked to perfection. For dessert, I had the blood orange sorbet. Talk about fresh made: melt in your mouth goodness. Will definitely be back.

Nicely constructed area. Tables in entryway were lowly lit and less noisy than top level with bar. Food for restaurant week was amazing. Our drinks were very strong and desert was divine.

I loved the Nest’s old menu! The Kobe beef sliders were absolutely the best we’ve ever had, and we went to the Nest many times just to have them. We’re very disappointed that they aren’t on their new menu. We also loved their compressed cucumber salad, but assume that was just taken off for the winter season. Their new fig salad was very good.

Make a reservation now and eat at the NEST. The best meal we have had in a long time. But wait, I shouldn't have to sell you, I already said to sign up now.

My wife and I went on a Monday night for restaurant week meal. It was great! Warm welcome when arriving. Fun atmosphere. GREAT FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE. Fixed price, three course meal was perfect and there were also terrific choices on the newly revised menu.

OK, stop wasting time, make a reservation now for next chance you get.

My friends and I went back for a second time in hopes of improvement. We all went last Fall and were told they would have brunch beginning in December. They still don't have a brunch menu. They have a small menu for breakfast and a separate lunch menu. They were out of biscuits, the food was extremely salty and my friend had paper left from the block of butter on her plate. Our server was wonderful. But we won't be returning.

This was by far one of the most exquisite dining experiences we have experienced. The cioppino was superb! The kobe burger was perfect, the Wasabi mayo was an unexpected but delicious touch! the crab cake was outstanding. As was the creme Brule dessert. There was not a single missing thing in our meal. The service was excellent and the ambiance was very good. Wish we had this restaurant in Arizona! By far one of the best experiences we've ever had!

This was an excellent find! Our original lunch plans fell through due to an excessive wait time. I found NEST on open table with good reviews and they could seat us quickly. We were very pleasantly surprised! Great food and beer options, great service as well with knowledge of what they have. Would definitely recommend and return!!

No one was at the host stand. I had to go to the bar to check in for my reservation. I tried ordering the salmon, then the sea bass. They were out of both. I ordered the crab cake and it was cold inside. Extremely pricey...$28 for one crab cake. Will not return.

Enjoyed a delicious dinner celebrating my husband's birthday. Food was reasonably priced for the quality and our server was very friendly and attentive. Located on country club property and isn't well marked, which I didn't realize and almost wondered if we had the address wrong until I saw the restaurant next to the club house. But the property is of course pretty and the restaurant is intimate. Recommend trying the Kobe beef sliders for an appetizer, very juicy!

Wife says: Great coffee.... Nito-brew! The view to the landscaped outdoor patio is incredible. You can even see the golf course in the background! Never knew this place was even there! Great food selection (very current and creative)!

I say: AWESOME BEER SELECTION! Something like 20 locally brewed craft beer on tap. Loved “Child Support” from The Veil. How’d they score that?????

My first impression was that the restaurant was a lot smaller than I had imagined it would be however my husband liked the size and said it was cozy. When my dinner arrived again I thought it was small but I think I am just used the portion size in other restaurants because the portion size turned out to be perfect and I even had room for dessert which I normally never do. We enjoyed trying the beers as we are craft brew drinkers. Overall I would recommend Nest. We will definitely go back.
