    We had a wonderful evening. Sharing the small plates was a hit with my group of 5 friends. I would have given 5 stars but we were cold and had to keep our coats on even with sweaters underneath. Management was unable to move us to another table away from the windows. They closed the shades which helped and we took off our coats half way through the meal. Overall great food and waitress was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and made good suggestions.

    The food came in large portions but there was too much sauce on many of the dishes. The cocktails were excellent though! The MSU game was on so it was rather loud - the restaurant doesn't have great acoustics because of the cement everywhere. There was a rather loud group watching the game, which we didn't mind but it was hard to hear your own conversation with the noise. We'll probably be back but would maybe stick to drinks.

    Ambience was good. Food was below average. Calamari chewy, truffle fries cold with a lemon aioli-not a good match for truffle fries, Brussels sprouts hard. Chicken lollipops fatty. The cheeseburger was very good. Carrot cake was dry. Very disappointing food. Service was ok, but kept forgetting plates. The server would bring the large plate without plates for the 4 of us. Drinks were too expensive. $19 for a glass of Chardonnay? Heard a lot about Nomad, but unfortunately our party of 4 was very disappointed.

    This was my second visit to NOMAD and unfortunately, it was a disappointing experience. The staff we interacted with were very nice, but it felt as if it was their first night on the job… with little to no training. The dishes were alright, but the quality of the dishes and service didn’t reflect the price point. The Brussel sprouts were drowning in aioli. The burger was a simple smash burger for $26 and the fried chicken was bland. We ordered dessert and had the gelato dropped off before our dinner plates were cleared and then we waited another ten minutes for the apple pie to arrive. I recommend you order one item at a time, whether you know you’re whole order or not because the dishes will come out whenever they’re ready, regardless if they’re coursed or not. I’m surprised that NOMAD has such a disconnect from what I find to be a given when it comes to service; fine dining and casual alike. I hope they can figure it out because the potential is there.

    The menu is different from the one listed on Opentable and is very limited. The first glass of wine I ordered smelled like fermented wine, but the waitress brought a new glass of good wine. We ordered calamari for appetizer but they were hard, so we ordered also shrimp chips but those were not eatable. For main dish we ordered branzino and we said that we would split it. The whole fish arrived on wooden desk but the waiter did not bring us plates to eat on, and no plate for head, tail and bones. When we asked the waiter and later the manager to take the fish back to the kitchen and clean it, they refused. We were so frustrated about the whole dining experience that we decided to leave hungry. We wanted to pay but the manager told us not to pay. I rarely write bad reviews but this restaurant was below all our expectations. The only nice thing about this place is its location and nice view on marina.

    food was amazing. I am not a huge fan of brussels sprouts, but these were amazing, I couldn’t stop eating them. I ordered the filet, so so good. I could have probably ate 10 of them. All of the sauces that came with everything were amazing. The presentation is awesome. Everyone there is so sweet. Teresa was our server, she is fantastic!

    When serving the Branzino, after presenting the dish table side, if you could offer to have the head removed and the fish deboned, that would be appreciated by many diners. It is a delicious addition to your menu!

    We did a pre-concert dinner & had a great experience. We were warmly greeted & taken right to our table. The high top chairs were very comfortable. Everything we had was amazing, Brussels sprout appetizer, great drinks & kimchi carbonara. The portions were large & prices very reasonable for what you’re getting! Ended the night with French press coffee & cheesecake tacos, both were outstanding.

    All in all it was a great experience. One thing I would have liked was the staff being a little more knowledgeable of the menu and having more time between dishes. By the time we sat down to the time our apps arrived, it was literally ten minutes and they kept coming from there. The eagerness of the staff to clear our plates while we were still eating was a little much. Especially considering they didn’t bother asking if we were finished or not. I think it just comes down to points of service. If the staff picks that up a bit and times out the courses more, it would elevate NOMAD to another level.

    They are very efficient but really they bring out the food too fast. We were there to enjoy being with our friends and wanted it slower. We hadn’t even had time to enjoy our drink before they started the food service. Appetizer and mains came out almost at the same time. We will go back!

    Staying at a nearby luxury hotel, just wanted something different, and Nomad is in walking distance. We were seated outside on their patio, plenty of large, adjustable umbrellas to shade the evening sun, comfortable seating with ample room table-to-table. Food was outstanding, nice selection of appetizers, small plates, and entrees, and a large selection of wines and hard liquor. Service was very friendly and accommodating, a little unpolished, but trying very hard, and genuinely nice people. Perfect place for a casual night out, will return.

    I must say that the food was excellent and the ambiance was lovely but my experience with the “front of the house” was so negative I will likely not return. I arrived around 6 pm to meet a friend and despite the fact that only four tables on their extensive patio were occupied, I was told that without a reservation it would be impossible to be seated outside. I was taken to a table in a dark corner next to the kitchen. Thankfully I opened my “OpenTable “ app and immediately booked a reservation. Every single time was open and even for parties as large as 8. I returned to the front desk with my new “reservation “ and was moved to a prime table on the patio. Too bad I had been planning to buy a $200 gift certificate for my niece who will be honeymooning in town next week. I would never send anyone I care about to a place that enjoys insulting and denigrating it’s guests

    We loved everything we ordered from apps to mains no detail was overlooked. The only area I would knock off points for is how quick the service was. When we ordered we were hoping the food would come out based on the course but they just brought everything out as it came out of the kitchen. We had barely tried 2 bites of something before they were bringing out the next dish. The table next to us made a similar comment to the waitress about how they were in and out of there in 35 minutes. It didn’t look like they had a shortage of tables or waitstaff so I don’t know why everything was so rushed. I’d definitely come back and recommend it, but just be aware that if you’re hoping to have a 1-2 hour experiential meal here, that’s probably not going to happen.

    The restaurant and patio are beautiful, very hip! The sunset was gorgeous as we ate on the patio. My husband ordered the Nomad Mule (a blackberry smash) and I had the margarita. My drink was good, but my husband did not enjoy his as all alcohol on top, berries on bottom…maybe serve shaken? We had the burrata and heirloom salad to start, beautiful presentation, but tomatoes had been refrigerated and lacked flavor. We also had the smashed potatoes, good but needed salt. No salt and pepper on table, had to ask. Then we had brussel sprouts which were delicious. My husband had the Bao buns which were tasty, and creatively presented. The portions at Nomad are very generous even though advertised as small plates! We moved to the bar after dinner (to watch US Open). I asked the bartender to make me a non-alcoholic spritzer. It was a blackberry lime & mint concoction, so good! Maybe add to your menu!?

    Only one negative. We started with salads. Only after the salads arrived did we order our entrees. However, the entrees were delivered to our table way too soon and left to get cold on our table while we ate our salads. This is probably a training issue and otherwise everything was excellent.
