    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.

    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.

    Good not great. Space is quite cool/trendy with a nice bar area and outdoor patio overlooking the harbor in Bay Harbor. Service was good, though the server was a bit overtaxed. We didn’t mind because we weren’t in a hurry. Ceviche appetizer was HUGE, but a bit bland. Thai Chicken was nicely cooked and moist but not very “Thai”-flavored. Bao Buns were the best of the dishes we tried - pillowy buns, tasty hoisin sauce and meaty/delicious meatball fillings. This space has been kryptonite for every restaurant that has used it since Bay Harbor was developed. Nomad is an appealing concept and we wish them all success. We’ll be back.

    We think we got what they are trying to do. It’s an interesting concept, food seems high-quality, and staff is very attentive. However about half the dishes were only OK in terms of taste. And the food sharing idea may not be the best for the likely customer at this restaurant. We wish them nothing but the best though!

    We were sat on time as we arrived fir out scheduled reservation. The service was the worst we’ve experienced, for a Wednesday night we waited 50 minutes for our appetizer and had to ask for water twice during service. Food was great but service was seriously awful, if we were with friends or clients it would have been even more disappointing. We would go back for drinks and maybe an appetizer but wouldn’t entertain there.

    The food was delicious. I had forgotten how large the plates are - many very shareable so a little awkward if you don’t want to share because your choice is so delicious! Food comes out as it is ready so a little awkward to eat in front of others. The live music was annoying and made it difficult to hear. I felt sorry for table right in front of the speaker.

Definitely need to go back soon and try more things. There literally wasn’t anything on the menu we didn’t want to try. Great place and can’t wait to go again. Everyone TRY this place!!

    Lobster bisque was like tomato soup with a piece of lobster, bread with burrata was inedible, spicy sausage rigatoni was sweet and tangy rather than spicy and noodles were cold….onion rings were excellent, server was pleasant but didn’t know how to split the check. We were not given a print out or details about our bill just a final amount to pay. Manager was told about all of this and he removed a food item from our bills but it was an awful dining experience and we will not return.

    We had two apps (Bao bun, sardines), onion rings and three Entrées (snapper, Thai chicken, kimchi carbonara). The only disappointing thing was udon noodles were not udon noodles. The rest of the things were had were great and would order them again. The thing out of their control was there was a wedding next to their patio (we sat on the patio) and the music was loud (Saturday nights in the summer I guess are a gamble sitting on the patio). All in all we will be going back, and trying more of the menu.

    Service was very good. Previous service was sketchy since I believe it was her first week. Second time around, we had a very nice, experienced waitress. Would eliminate the Tapas style service for table service. It just does not work well. Wine list revealed some nice choices. Appetizers were the best part. Highly suggest the Bao Buns.
