    We enjoy the restaurant so much we tend to overlook the noise level in the back portion of the restaurant. When full, as it was last evening, the volume of conversation can be heard throughout the large area.

    The menu is provocative with uncommonly diverse side dishes, and a few compelling main plates. The Freeform approach to ordering this or that can be fun to experiment with socially, unless you’re just not seeing that dish that you really feel like having. It’s a unique experience more than a steady go-to. The outing was nice, the food was good and service was friendly. All nice for a change from the norm.

    Made a early reservation for 4 and were the first customers in the house that day. After ordering an appetizer we decided to try the chef's tasting. It was a excellent experience and the food and wine were quite nice. The pace was very relaxed and the food was creative and well prepared. All 4 of us had a wonderful time. We will be back and recommend it to our friends.

    We took our adult kids to Nomad and they loved the food. We started with Korean Pork Bow...yum! The Wagu burgers were delicious and my daughter-in-law loved the linguine with clam dish. The only complaint was how the food arrived. We were told that they bring things out right when they are made, so that everything is hot. Great idea until my husband's chopped salad arrived after we had all finished eating. Easy fix, we'll be back!

    The cocktail menu is classy, fun, and so creative! I wanted to try them all. My friends, and I had amazing service provided by Jamie and Bryan. We made a later reservation, and pretty much had the place to ourselves. Never once did we feel like we overstayed our welcome; even though we were there a half hour after they “closed” True hospitality.

    Our party of four each enjoyed the chef’s selection seven course dinner. Every dish was tastier than the next. Crab cakes were fresh and flavorful. Filet with Detroit zip sauce was tender and prepared perfectly. Even the chopped salad, which I’d typically consider a “filler” course, was different and delightful. Our service was top-notch. Jamie was attentive and friendly, taking time to highlight each course. He cheerfully arranged substitutions for the pescatarian in our party and took time to highlight each course as it arrived. Atmosphere felt pleasantly Big City with a terrific DJ (shout out to DJ Parker Marshall!) spinning a great mix at a very comfortable volume for dinner and conversation. All in all, NOMAD. made the perfect place for a lovely evening with friends and some of the best dining we’ve enjoyed in quite some time.

    Ambiance was nice and intimate. Food is terribly over priced. Not the best menu and the taste isn’t amazing. For a fine dining experience, the food quality is low. Need better menu options, pork seasoned fries are not good. The lasagna was nothing fancy, and the lamb shank was not the best. Would not recommend to others.

    We have been to NOMAD several times now - it is a great restaurant to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or even bring your whole family for a meal. We have been for both date nights and large family dinners. Their food is incredible and so creative. The menu changes seasonally. It is definitely the best food I have had in Northern Michigan. They have a large food and cocktail menu that includes something for everyone. The staff is kind, attentive to detail, and efficient. The atmosphere is beautiful and vibrant on the inside and has a wonderful view of Bay Harbor on the outside. If you are in the Northern Michigan area it is definitely worth stopping by. We can't wait to go back!

    I was looking forward since my second experience (mid-summer)was so good…. But, this time was more like the first. The place is very noise, even though it was not full. I spoke to the owner a year ago who acknowledged the noise and said they’d be looking at putting in some soft surfaces to buffer the noise. It has not happened. Last night we had to move tables in order to hear our foursome… As well, tapas is supposedly served in rolling style… Last night ours was served all at once such that the dishes were cold before all was eaten. We live in petoskey… We dine out at least twice a week… Nomad has moved to a low place on my list…

    We enjoyed a great meal this weekend at Nomad, where we got to check out the new fall menu. Our server Erica was terrific and the cocktail list impressive and funky. All the plates we had were killer, notably the new salmon dish, the lamb shank, scallops, and curry cauliflower! This place puts Asian influences into dishes in a creative and unique way not common around here. Get in there!
