    Very good food. Small plates were exceptional. Perfect place to order multiple menu items and enjoy with your date. Drinks were great. There was a wedding going on at the same time and noise level wasn’t bad! Highly recommend.

    Great place to dine outdoors (and indoors)! Water views with interesting, well prepared food, and a nice wine list. A sure bet for an interesting and relaxing dining experience.

    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.

    The food was excellent. We were a party of three and had 3-4 small plate menu items. The burrata salad was especially creamy and delicious and we enjoyed the chicken wings, foie gras and bao buns. The service was efficient, but not especially warm. My lychee martini was great and the wine we had was top-notch. We will be back!

    Our 44th Anniversary- received a free wonderful dessert. We dined outside- 4 of us. Good service and perfect weather and view. There was an outdoor wedding and we loved the oldies played by a dj. Plates are essentially tapas to share. Every one we ordered was tasty. Warning- the food comes out within minutes of ordering. Ask/Order for a plate or two at a time or you will finish dinner in 20 minutes or lass. Prices are reasonable and we were greeted warmly when we arrived. We will return.

    Server had an attitude and made a big deal about us splitting check between two couples. Then she pressured us to leave the table early after we paid even though we still had 45 minutes of our reservation time left.

    Came here for our 20th anniversary and the venue and location is incredible. It was loud and we wished we had picked something different for this occasion. The food under-delivered for the price. We ordered multiple items - the burrata was flavorless, the agnolotti was delicate but light on flavor. The smashed potatoes were delightful and the filet was cooked well (we enjoyed both). Service was SLOW, I never received my drink and had to ask for another midway through the meal. Our food was delivered multiple times the wrong table. Our server was apologetic and kind but inattentive. I doubt we will return and wouldn’t recommend it if you have a special occasion.

    The waitress was so lovely. She helped us order, figure out the right amount of food, made great recommendations and even took an item off our bill when she noticed we didn’t eat it (no fault of restaurant, just wasn’t to our taste). Miso Cod was perfectly done and loved by our 11 year old as well. Chicken Salad was lightly dressed and quite flavorful. Will get both again. Rigatoni was a bit bland but would still get again. Bao super yummy as were the shishito peppers. Would not recommend the sardines. Great flavor but large with large bones. And would definitely recommend the aperol spritz on tap. A bit sweet but I like it that way.

    Our server was very good, friendly, and professional. The timing on the service is first rate, with starter plates coming up quickly, as they're plated. With this type of service, with four of us trying and sharing different plates, it's the way to go. On a beautiful July night, eating on the patio overlooking Bay Harbor and the marina, is really nice. We would have not enjoyed eating inside. It's noisy, cold, and there's loud cheesy music blaring.

    Price point is about right for where Nomad is located in Bay Harbor, but the food was bland except the shishito peppers (we ordered about 6 small plates and two pasta dishes). Nothing was terrible, but it wasn’t outstanding and I probably won’t go back for food. The dessert and drinks were great though!

    NOMAD was a very good experience considering they’ve only recently opened. Our waitstaff was excellent and the bartender made great drinks for our table. We sat outside on a beautiful summer night but needed to move tables because we were seated next to trees that had some kind of bug infestation. Brown butter agnolotti and miso black cod were delicious and the tomatoes in the burrata salad were so good. Only downside was despite reservation we wound up waiting a while.

    Disappointing dinner. I felt the food was overpriced considering that the kitchen chooses to serve the food at their convenience instead of all diners getting their dinner at once. I would only recommend if you plan on sharing small plates, not if you are planning to eat at once.

    Nomad was amazing. We didn’t have an expectation level going in, but if we did, it would’ve been exceeded. We were seated immediately on arriving for our reservation. Water was served as soon as we were seated. Our server took our drink orders right after and answered our questions. He said it was encouraged to share plates which was a great suggestion as several were quite large even as “small plates”. We shared the truffle fries, smashed potatoes, burrata,miso black cod, and the wagyu/foie gras burger (it’s listed at $300 on the menu including a bottle of wine but they were happy to allow us to order it for $48 without the wine). Everything was excellent. Even our teenage son couldn’t find anything to complain about so I’d say it was 5 stars. Don’t miss the cheesecake tacos for dessert. We will be back.

    Great restaurant - food, drinks, service and location are wonderful! The only downside is not much for sound dampening, so it is very loud with voices of bigger groups carrying throughout and the music was even louder so it was difficult for conversation. Hoping they can make some tweaks to this. Beyond that, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we will definitely be back!
