Easter, they really weren’t able to manage the amount of people. Waited about 45 minutes for our food.
Nicole was a great server. Very attentive and very was timely in checking on us. The food came out relatively quickly and the Bloody Mary was one of the best I’ve had. That was in a meal itself. Would definitely recommend this place. Will come back again.
Thanks so much for your kind words and for coming in - we hope to see you back soon!
The venue is beautiful, however service is BEYOND slow. Our server actively avoided our table throughout the meal. The Restaurant did not staff the kitchen appropriately. It took 72 minutes after ordering for a majority of the table to be served cold entrees for brunch. It took an additional 11 minutes for the final entree to arrive to the table. We had to beg for an update on our food three times. As a previous Restaurant Manager, I was severely disappointed in the experience overall. We did not receive an apology or a discount for the excessive wait time. The food was good, not great. It felt as though our presence in the Restaurant was a nuisance. I understand that it was Easter and the Restaurant was full and busy. But I cannot accept that our server would not bring us an update on our food status and had a manager drop our food with no mention of an issue in the kitchen. My family is very forgiving, so we dealt with it. But I was moments away from cancelling our orders and leaving for Cracker Barrel once we had waited for over an hour.
We waited over an hour for food. We were given $15 gift card to return but not very apologetic. Server was nice and didn’t check on us very often. I think they needed more staff for the holiday.
Reserved a brunch table which was not available. I stayed one hour at the table eventually provided and there were still many (5-10) empty tables when I left. Resturant was not busy. I was served raw (not what I ordered) greasy eggs and flavorless toasted bread which I had to remind them to serve. Bread arrived late so the unappealing eggs were now cold. I didn’t know the eggs were raw until the bread arrived as I enjoy toast with my eggs. I struggled to figure out what I could possibly consume from what was presented to me and I ended up with eating the cold piece of toasted bread and water. Waite staff was friendly though and gets five stars and my usual 30% tip. The cost was not high, but I would not go to Nest Resturant again even if meal was complimentary.
I suspect all the great reviews are from locals stuck with the place in their backyard.
Accommodated us on Easter Sunday for brunch, with reservation. Drinks and food were amazing!
Really disappointed in my experience at Nest Kitchen & Taphouse. We were a party of 3 with reservations. They had to hurriedly find us a table and we were seated next to the entry doorway with entry and exit traffic constant throughout our meal. The noise level was extremely loud. We really had to raise our voices just to engage in normal conversation. I ordered the scallop taco meal and received two on my entrée. One of them only had a single scallop on it. The second taco did have three scallops. The accompanying slaw was good and flavorful. In addition, the service was awful. Our waiter took 15-20 minutes before taking our order. The orders were not brought to our table until another 25 minutes passed. Our group opted for dessert and that took another 20 minutes to receive. In total, we spent between 1.5-2.0 hours dining with about 1.25 hours spent waiting for our food to be served!! The three of us all agreed that we would not be returning!!
We visited the restaurant to check it out as we have booked a large party in May there. Amazing food, great service and wonderful ambiance! Manager also helped us confirm and adjust our future reservation so that it better accommodated our needs! If you have not been - try it. We had the scallop appetizer, steak and chicken tacos for dinner - all were excellent but the scallops over vegetable hash as a starter were the highlight!
Thank you so much for coming in and for the fantastic feedback - we're excited to see you back in May!
Food fresh prepared and paired well with craft beers. Rockfish tacos were best ever had. If you are sports fan this is place to be with multiple viewing and visibility throughout space.
Thanks for coming in, Rocky - we're so glad that you loved your experience! We hope to see you back in soon!
Everything was delicious. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the steak. The sides were almost better than the main dishes. Service was excellent as well. It can get a little loud if there are boisterous guests nearby but the food and service make up for it!
Thank you so much for coming in, and for the fantastic feedback! We hope to see you back in soon!
Food was good. Could use a few more entree choices. Three people at our table had the kale slaw and all agreed that was not a winner. I had the scallops appetizer with butternut squash and bacon. It was good but scallops were just a bit too grilled/too dark. Hand Held tacos looked great.
We were seated by an open window to look out onto the golf course. But by the end of dinner the sun was gone and it got chilly.
Server was prompt initially. But we asked for a few minutes to look over the menu and he disappeared. Had to hunt him down. He was pleasant enough and after that service was fine.
Thank you so much for coming in - we hope to see you back in soon, and to give you that five star experience!
Electricity went out... everyone dealt with it as best they could.
Thank you for your patience with us while we dealt with this tough situation. We hope that you're able to come back in soon and give us a try!
Great food, great service!
Thank you so much for the great feedback - we hope to see you back in soon!
The main entree was delicious, the sides were awful. The grit cakes were hockey pucks. The butternut squash was good but not outstanding. Serve better sides. The drunk muscles appetizer were outstanding. We had to ask for everything water, ketchup, and remind him that we had asked for extras like extra bbq sauce with the ribs with our order. Ladies should be waited in and served first. We have been there 3 times. Its hit it miss.
Overall very nice experience. The rotating beer selection along with a diverse menu and nice ambiance make this a great choice.
Thanks so much for the feedback - we're so glad that you enjoy our carefully crafted menus! We hope to see you back in soon!
Love this place for breakfast, brunch and dinner!!!! Great food, fabulous atmosphere! One of our favorite spots!
Thanks so much for coming back again and again, Angie! We appreciate you!
All of the food was great! Our server took a while to get to us with drinks, but maybe there was some confusion since we told her part of our party was running late.
Thanks so much for coming in and for the helpful feedback! We apologize for the confusion with your drink order. We hope to see you back in soon!
Great atmosphere and excellent menu. Beer selection was extensive...can’t go wrong with the flight.
Thanks so much for coming in - and glad that you enjoyed our beer selection! Hope to see you back in soon!
Was there for breakfast with the family on 3/9/19. Was my first visit and loved the decor and ambiance. However, they appeared to be short handed this day, so service was very slow. I don't blame the waitstaff as they were doing double duty during our time at the restaurant. On a positive note, the food was delicious. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal.
Thank you so much for the feedback, Robyn! We appreciate your patience, and are sorry that the service was slow on the day that you came in! We'd love to see you back in soon and hope to give you an even better experience!
I have been to the Nest for Breakfast many times. This was the First brunch. I choose one of the specials the shrimp an spinach quiche with old bay spice. Just sublime. Served hot with mixed greens and fresh fruit. Service great love Mel
Thanks so much for coming in Barbara! We're so glad that you loved brunch, and we hope to see you back in soon!
Good service and food, just noisy
Thanks so much for coming in, and for your feedback! We hope to see you back in soon!
Our food and service was excellent. We will for sure return for more of that yumminess.
Thanks so much for coming in - we hope to see you back soon! We appreciate all the great feedback!
Thanks so much for coming in - we're so glad that you enjoyed everything and we hope to see you back in soon!
Service was pleasant but slow. Food was average . They were Abe to substitute which was nice.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We'd love to see you again soon and hope to give you a better experience!
We stopped by for dinner at Nest and had a great meal. The service was wonderful and the food was superb. We cannot wait to return.
Service was absolutely horrible, had to go to the bar to finally get our drink orders, which were club soda and sweet tea. Took about 45 min to get our food, and we had club sandwiches and burger. Food was mediocre to substandard, seems like it might have been under the heat lamps too long. Nice looking place, but they have a lot of work to do on the food and service.
We're sorry to hear about your experience with us. If you would like to provide your contact information, our General Manager will be happy to reach out to you directly.
We had an amazing experience dining here! We loved the food and had great service. We will definitely be coming back!
Thanks so much for the great feedback! We look forward to seeing you back in soon!
Very cute, cozy place with a lot of sweet ambiance. Food was delicious and the staff was friendly.
Thank you so much for the great feedback! We hope to see you back in soon!
My bf and I definitely enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The waitress we had was a bit rude but she fixed her attitude once she realized we notice.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your experience here - and hope that you'll give us and our service another chance!
The server did not explain the menu and the specials for the night.
The food quality was not great and we paid way more than it deserved.
We enjoy and appreciate the food at local restaurants in the area alwats. But this place is not like any of them.
I just ate my salad (that was good) but did not touch my food. Our server did not even ask why.
My husbad food was not cooked right either.
Dessert was fruit tart. Tart was hard like a piece of rock. We could not even cut it.
At the end we were charged two different prices for the same salad on our check.
I called the restaurant later and told them about how unsatisfactory their service and food was.
They did offer us to go back for a free appetizer during happy hour which I founf it very insulting. “No thank you” I said.
I did not call to get free stuff. Beside, I am not coming back. I rather spend my time and money elsewhere.
I was trying to tell them to train their servers better and improve the food.
I paid $$$ for a food and service that did not worth as much.
Best kept secret in Newport News...Very nice...
Thank you so much for the great feedback - we hope to see you back in soon!
We usually have a very good experience here but dinner that night, one of our diner’s didn’t get their order until after everyone else was already finished 🙁 We got a free dessert.
We're so sorry that you had a less than perfect experience - we hope that you'll give us another try and we can give you a five star experience!
The vibe was casual, but the settings were fancy, making for a very comfortable meal. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. Service was excellent.
Thank you so much for coming in - we're so glad that you enjoyed your experience! We hope to see you back in soon!
Love eating at NEST! Best food around! The Chicken Tacos are amazing!
Thank you so much for the great feedback - hope to see you back in soon!
The restaurant is nicely layout and the service was very good. Our servicer always checked to make sure that our glasses were full and was very informative about the dishes. The food however was only fair. The crab cake had more filler than it should at the price and my ribs were a little over cooked. The sauce for the ribs was very good and helped save them. The stuffing cake that accompanied the ribs was dry and needed some kind of sauce to bring down the spice. The salmon that one our friends had did look and taste very good though. The beer chooses were vey good as well. I would like to try the sandwiches before I decide if I would recommend Nest to a friend though.
Thank you so much for the great feedback - we're hoping that we're able to see you back in and that you'll give us another chance!
I wish I had found this place sooner. Everything I’ve tried so far is really good. Can’t wait to try brunch next!
Thank you so much for the great review - we're looking forward to seeing you back in soon!
The new menu is great. Had the breakfast tacos. The best I have had in years. Just the perfect combination of ingredients. This restaurant continues to be a great place. Thank you for being in Newport News.
Thanks so much for the great feedback - we hope to see you back in soon to give us a try for lunch or dinner!
Overall great experience. I would enjoy coming again with close family and friends.
Thanks so much for coming in and the great review - we hope to see you back soon!
This place is so darned cool! I love that it’s a little off the main drag. The views of the patio and surrounding landscape are great, but I just love being able to hang for a while and watch sports. I’ve only been here for lunch and dinner. Haven’t tried breakfast yet though. Going to!
Thanks for coming in - and we're looking forward to seeing you in for breakfast soon!
Their lunch options are exceptional. They truly have something for everybody! I got the Nest Burger that was topped with an over easy egg! I’d like to go back for dinner, the bartender shared all of the menus with us, and there are several things I NEED to have! Definitely a hidden gem in Newport News! I will be spreading the word!
Thank you so much for your great feedback - and we'd love to see you back in for dinner!
