    Too many different servers approaching us for drinks. Infinitely better than being ignored. Food was pretty good, but I didn’t feel the menu had much variety. I heard it was closing. Shame. I liked it.

    Fabulous cocktails, did a couple rounds of "Dealers Choice" where you give your preferred spirit and flavours (ie. Rum - smokey and earthy, Tequila - spicy and fruity) and the bartenders whip you up something completely custom and delicious. Excellent service and very chic space.

    It was a great experience over all and we are sad that Nomad is closing soon. Glad we got to have a last meal there. I am a slow eater and our next course was brought out before we had completed our first course. When I said that we were not ready for the next course, the server said, “well we are not remaking it, we will just put it under the heat lamps” I was not expecting them to remake it but I thought he was a little rude about it!!! I guess his customer service skills are not really important now that they are closing. Never had that happen before!!! Summer, our primary server was sweet though, and apologised for his abruptness

    So sad to see this place go; came here at least twice a month to unwind after work or to catch up with friends. Taylor, Benny and the rest of the team have always been amazing. Nomad made the best fries ever, and The Campfire cocktail and the daily sourdough were also must-haves. Hopefully they come back in one form or another very soon!

    During my visit to Vancouver, I made sure to make the (short) trek from downtown to visit my favorite brunch spot - Nomad. The Duck Benedict with the potato rosti remains one of my favorite brunch items of all time! And the Bloody Caesar is equally tasty. Thank you!

    The waitress couldn’t describe what the fifa dish was to us, but did apologise for not being able to do so. Felt that the restaurant looked lovely - fab ambience - but got a bit of an underwhelming, hipster feel to the dishes. Not the best brunch I’m afraid.

    Drinks were great - loved that you have a Sommelier. Food was very delicious- I had the ling cod - my partner had the gnocchi -came with half the plate bare - so he was surprised and also was not filling enough for him. I also noticed not great for vegetarians. Service was excellent - would go back but with limited menu items probably only go once a year or so. Thanks!

    The service was exceptional. Very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is casual in a “chic” way. The food is pricey but not out of the norm for gourmet restaurant. The uniqueness and variety of ingredients was a little more than I bargained for. A “plain” palate might not enjoy the menu here.

    Overall experience is poor. The server was not very pleasant. We follow up for the food and we asked why it was taking so long to serve and her answer was " I don't know." We asked if we could move the umbrella as the location we were seated the sun was directly towards our eyes. The server ignore our request. The food was very expensive and it was not worth the value.

    Good for a date night. Gluten free options. Interesting, upscale dishes in a laid-back environment. We got fries, hanger steak, pork belly, gnocchi, and duck leg. Everything but the gnocchi was gluten free (if you're okay with fryer contamination). I recommend sharing the fries between more than two people, unless you're very hungry like we were. The sourdough gnocchi was probably my favourite, but the duck leg was surprisingly good too. Pork belly was very good, but the generous serving of beans was more than we were interested in finishing. The hanger steak was a bit disappointing in terms of flavour - at least in comparison to the other dishes. Their cauliflower is very interesting and I'm glad we got side vegetables also. I'm sensitive to noise but found the noise level pretty reasonable considering the concrete walls and it was a busy Saturday night. Wine & cocktails were good, and the servers frequently came around to refill our waters. Very friendly and knowledgeable service.

    I went with a girlfriend for an 830 reservation and didn’t get seated until 9. We sat at the bar while we waited and bought a few delicious cocktails. Once we were seated we had pretty good service from a few different servers. We took their food recommendations and everything was delicious and well presented.

    They made an AMAZING vegan meal for me as I’d put a note on the open table reservation. All of the servers were lovely but there didn’t seem to be anyone specifically in charge of our table and so we had to wave people down a couple of times. I recommend adding the vegan option to the menu as I almost didn’t choose the restaurant because the menu on the website didn’t show anything vegan. Lovely space!

    Excellent meal, wonderful craft cocktails and very professional staff. We were all very impressed with the quality of our dinners (personally I recommend the roast duck breast). We were there for a friend's birthday dinner. Couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out; we'll all said we'd be back.

    Went to Nomad last night for date night with the Fiancé. Service was amazing- server (Megan) provided drink and food recommendations and we were super pleased with her recommendations. Only down fall was pricing - ie think $25 vegetarian pasta. I’ll probably still come back to try another couple of dishes- enjoyed the vibe
