    Open table took our reservation for a very important family dinner and when we arrived at the restaurant it was closed and has been closed for over a year. Our whole evening was ruined and it was to celebrate a very special occasion. How does open Table not know when a restaurant has closed and we were able to make reservations?! Very disappointed to say the least and not sure Open Table is the way to go

    Sinking ship. I booked a res to surprise my wife for our 21st wedding anniversary based upon two things: the live flamenco performance scheduled for 7:30, and the North African menu coupled with the Italian menu from one of the owner’s recent holdings. When we arrived, the restaurant was completely empty save for the owner who was gallantly sitting on the patio, and two other tables in the main dining room. There was only one staff member there who was the “maitre d’ everything”. Immediately sensed that either I was in the wrong place, or there wasn’t a flamenco show. No one checked our reservation which showed that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, which was never acknowledged, and that we were there for the show. The gentleman had no idea what we were talking about. He said he would ask the owner. I showed him the website and the calendar of events. The owner never came over, and I was not going to make a spectacle on this particular evening with my bride. Soon thereafter another staff member entered the dining room, a very sweet Moroccan woman who was very engaging with us. I ordered three beers from their menu, a Casa from Morocco, Mahou from Spain, an Allagash from Maine, they did not have any of them. It was then that I knew that we were on a sinking ship and the staff and us were going to be first to drown as the owner never left his seat on the patio. The food, despite my above misgivings above, was actually fantastic. We grazed through their haloumi wrapped in grape leaves, wild mushrooms, merguez/black olives flatbread before moving on to vegetable cous cous and lamb tagine. All were extraordinary. We capped the dinner with authentic mint tea and baklava with pistachio. More thought should be given to plate presentation- the tagine did not come with its’ cover which is the hallmark of the dish! There were several covers behind the bar as decoration. Only one more table came in before we left at 10pm. This place should be packed.

    The drinks at Nomad were really god. Got the sangria pitchers on happy hour and they were great on a summer evening. The happy hour food options though were very hit or miss. And it seems to be understaffed as there was only one waiter for the whole restaurant. I’d come again but only for drinks honestly

    What a great find! Celebrating my son's 26th birthday, all the generations were thrilled with our meal. We tried most of the menu items, and all were delicious - four apps, two flatbreads, both tangines (delicious!!!), couscous, and two other main dishes. Was a wonderful experience with very attentive waitstaff.

    The restaurant was very cool. It had a very unique atmosphere with all of the decor and live music. I went here with a group of 10 people which was very nice since it’s hard to find a restaurant to accommodate that many people on short notice. The food was good but they did not allow any substitutions which was a little weird since my friend wanted to remove one of the ingredients on a salad but the waiter said they couldn’t do that. She had to end up ordering something else. I also did not know the restaurant did not have a liquor license, so make sure you’re aware of that before going or you will be slightly disappointed like I was. Otherwise the restaurant was definitely an experience and overall a fun time.

    One of my favorite restaurants in NYC hadn't been for 2 yrs because of COVID.I met an old friend we sat on the street in a makeshift coverall. They had a live jazz trio ss a bones. We split an appetizer of grilled Halumi cheese inside grape leaves with roasted tomatoes in oil very good. He had lamb shank tajine a stew of prunes almond inside a pot with a sauce delicious he said. I told him the sauce use to be thicker this was watery. I had salmon crusted in pumpkin seeds with mixed vegetables. It was very moist and seasoned well. It was a very good meal

    One of the best dining experiences we have had in NYC this trip! Everything from walking in the door to having the owner share his restaurant with us was incredible. Go hungry! We had the trio of dips, the homemade sausage, the fattoush, the lamb tajine and the chicken cous cous. The food was divine - recommend rolling off with tea ❤️

    I had a truly wonderful dining experience at Nomad East Village. I started with the arugula and beet salad - which was fresh and delicious. I then had the pumpkin seed crusted salmon with vegetables, which was fantastic. And I finished with the chocolate cake, which was amazing. The service was outstanding and the prices most reasonable. I look forward to returning soon.

    We had a very good experience at this restaurant. The meat was cooked very well and it taste delicious. The service was excellent. The ambience was good as well. I just wasn’t impress with the bread we had - it was very hard . I wish we had a choice of something toasted and softer taste.

    Got there with a reservation on Valentine's day, and had to wait for almost an hour outside, crammed with other people and being left behind by newcomers chasing the hosts across the room, supposedly at "25%" capacity. We were still hoping to have a good meal when we finally got in, but they were out of Lamb so we had to order a Steak the waiter recommended to us. Then, they were out of Steak too, but they only realized 20 mins later, preventing us from ordering anything else. The waiter gave us a free beer when the proper thing would have been at least free dessert. At this point, we realized that ordering home wouldn't have been so bad after all...
