    This was our first visit and the GPS took us back roads to get here; my husband was pretty convinced that the food wouldn't justify the hour drive on dirt roads (lots of detours and rush hour traffic). However, a couple of bites into the appetizer and he was convinced! Great food and a lovely setting that feels more remote than it really is---such peaceful surroundings and the restaurant design makes the best use of lovely views. Can't wait to return in the fall and winter when the scenery changes. However, we'll definitely be back before then to enjoy the delicious cocktails and great food. Menu is not expansive, but every item was nicely done. We shared the Duck Fat Dumplings and my husband liked them so much he ordered a second one for his entree! He also had the Caesar salad and said it was the freshest and best he's had in ages (and he's picky about his Caesars!) I had their Crab Cavatelli special which was decadent, creamy, and delicious (half of it went home with me). We ordered carrot cake for takeout and enjoyed it later at home---very moist and not overly sweet! Staff were all friendly and efficient. Overall, can't wait to return!

    We love this place, but it seems it's not ran real well. Server was sort of slow and then the food wasn't delivered to the table all at once. There is so much potential here, but maybe needs a different manager?

    The Nest is consistent with good food, service, and ambience. It blends and industrial modern interior with a peaceful rural exterior. It's a great place for a good dinner with friends and/or family.

    Love the restaurant, great staff. Love the food and love the N.A. options. Our truffle fries were a bit overcooked, but our mushroom risotto with salmon and the chicken pasta were fantastic. Gertina was a fabulous server. Beth even remembered us from our visit a few weeks ago. We highly recommend this place.

    A lot of people we talked with liked the restaurant, but the Easter buffet was disappointing. Expected more than a $2.99 breakfast? Where was the ham and roast beef that was quoted when I booked a table for 4 at $120.00. How do you think I felt! We will come back for lunch sometime but that was embarrassing.

    Easter “Buffet”: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, toast, French toast, spinach cheese egg bite. The end. $113 for 3 people for the equivalent of a free hotel breakfast bar (and even they have oatmeal). Not a “buffet”, and potatoes were so salty they were inedible. That’s down to a “buffet”’with 6 edible offerings. Incredibly disappointing. Will not return. Easter bunny was cute though! Nice touch.
