This was our second visit to Nightingale, and again an excellent evening. Tried different dishes and all were as delicious as first visit. Amazing tastes, every mouthful a treat. Service is excellent. Servers are very knowledgeable about each dish. Attentive to when serving utensils needed, cleared small plates when needed. Go early if you want a quieter atmosphere. We went for 5pm. By the time we left at 7:30pm the place was full and very noise. Not a problem unless you have someone in your group with hearing problems - we had someone who wears hearing aids so wanted to avoid a lot of background noise.

Server was super friendly and helpful. Had to reschedule twice because work was keeping me late but the restaurant was accommodating both times. Excellent food and service overall.

Always love Nightingale and this time was no exception. Food is wonderful. Staff is friendly. It was my daughter's birthday. She's in culinary school and the Head Chef showed her around and invited her to come back and spend the day in the kitchen seeing how they do things. She is THRILLED. None of this was requested. They just offered it knowing she'd probably love that. Very special.

I took my gf for her birthday dinner and wasn't aware of the no substitution or changes to the menu, she is gluten free so we were restricted. I felt the servers were rather rude in describing this. They didn't come by our table often to offer us more drinks or food and their attitude felt indifferent to their guests. I did love the food we ordered, especially the mushrooms and the food came remarkably fast.

It was our moms 80 th birthday with just the kids ( who like to eat), a total of 7 of us. Ryan was the perfect host , the food and flavours are so out of this world, beyond what you ever could imagine. It is my wife's favoritue restarant, not to mention all her friends.

Beautiful restaurant, food was good; however, not impressed with the "no modification" menu (how is leaving off a sauce considered a modification?) and was seated right at the front door which detracted from my experience. Not sure that I will return given that there are sooooo many excellent restaurants in the city, and this experience was so-so.

We have been there before and it continues to impress us. Especially love the cauliflower and brussel sprout dishes.

We had a friend from out of town with us, so our dinner went quite long and they didn't try and rush us out.

Noisy; which made it very difficult to have a conversation without raising your voice (like everyone in the restaurant). Wine list is skewed towards high end selections.

This was my third visit in 3 months. Highly recommend! The service is amazing - friendly, authentic staff who seem genuinely interested in your enjoyment of the food. Some of the courses were served by the Head Chef and you can tell by the way he spoke that there's pure love in the food. The pizza was a definite highlight - we had the special Cacio e Pepe pizza last time and the one with smoked prosciutto, gorgonzola, walnut, watercress, and five year balsamic the time before that. Both excellent, perfectly balanced and full of flavour. These are not heavy pizzas - they have a thin, delicious crust. I've had the buttermilk chicken and the apple salad on two visits. It's one of those places where you have a hard time choosing between something you know is absolutely delicious versus trying something new.
