Their espresso machine wasn't working then they didn't have the pork belly I wanted. But no drama it is still one of my favorite spots. The server was ok just seemed like they were a bit overwhelmed had to ask 4 times for my Bloody Mary.
We ate there last Saturday night with another couple. We ordered a bunch of plates but they forgot 3 of them and by the time the waiter came around we were "over it".
Love this place. It has a tapas menu and a regular menu. The corn on the cob is to die for.
While the food has always been well prepared and loaded with charcoal grilled flavor,the service still leaves much to be desired, even after 2+ years in business. I get the feeling that the restaurant is not run well, maybe a lack of management and training. A fire has "closed" the dining room, what little there was, so only patio dining. Fortunately heaters work well enough to be comfortable through a meal but 40 to 50 degree temps are cold to us Floridians. Cocktails are inventive but skimpy. Menu standouts abound though. Whole grilled yellowtail snapper delish, no accompanied sides, for $30. Small plates better with yummy grilled eggplant w/miso, grilled whole fresh artichoke, shrimp and calamari dish and pricey fresh and grilled oysters. Curiously six oysters @2.50 apiece for the grilled but half dozen raw is $21. inexplicably .
Right on Las Olas with outdoor tables. It has an upscale Key West feel with a great tapas type menus. Try the corn.
When we arrived, they told us that they didn't have a reservation in our name. I showed them my email from Opentable, but they mumbled something about their systems being down, and not being able to notify Opentable because it was New Years Eve. We didn't get a table, and had to instead sit at a high-top. Food and service were otherwise good, but unremarkable
The food and atmosphere were great. Service was good, could have been better. They were busy, but they didn't looked short staffed. The rain was an issue that day however. Beautiful restaurant overall, and the mimosas were endless.
Food and drinks were superb. Given that I had a reservation, I would've hoped for better seating than an "afterthought" table on the edge of the property and wedged between dog owners.
Aside from that, noms central and the best Bloody Mary I've ever drank.
Amazing food! Everything is prepared to perfection. Great outdoor seating area. Perfect for a large group or for a date.
Service started out ok, and then half way through the the meal we didn't see our waiter for 25 minutes. Sit at the bar for drinks
Great service! Live the happy hour.
Great staff. Very friendly and made great suggestions on food. Awesome happy hour.
When I'm in Fort Lauderdale, love to hang out at Sweet Nectar to people watch. Happy hour specials are a good deal and the food has an interesting twist. Staff is very young, and not always attentive.
The style of the food and the positive attitude of all the employees was awesome.
Sweet Nectar offers unique small dishes instead of regular meals. We tried several of them, including a wedge salad with chipolte dressing and red peppers, scallops in a red sauce served with crunchy garlic bread, grilled asparagus, and lollipop lamb chops. All were prepared and served perfectly and tasted delicious. There is a large wine and beer list and we got the two for one Happy Hour deal. The wine serving was small and was served in a tumbler rather than a wine glass,, The outside atmosphere was pleasant, and overall we enjoyed our visit.
We've eaten here several times and it's been consistently great. This is a tapas restaurant, so you'll need to order maybe 3 or 4 items per person (unless you get the dinosaur short rib which is huge.) The service has always been friendly and efficient, too. If you want to eat at an indoor, quiet and/or inexpensive restaurant, this is not the place to go. It's largely a young crowd. Most of the seating is outdoors and the music can be sort of loud - which we like. Recommended dishes are the beef sliders; hash browns with horseradish cream; shisito peppers; watercress salad; sweet corn; and, smores. Stay away from the whole artichoke which was the only dish we ever didn't like here (2 out of 3 times; it was undercooked and was clearly boiled before being grilled.)
We sat outside; other than the Mosquitos it was a really nice environment. It's right on the main area of Las Olas Blvd, so the activity makes for great people watching. The food was just OK. We ordered the street corn, potato pancake, scallops, and crab cake sliders. The potato pancake was, by far, the best. Really nice flavor- not too oily. The scallops were so so- pretty bland and just sat in a pan of oil. Crab cakes were good, as well as the avocado spread, but the potato bread buns were super sense and unpleasant to eat. The corn was slathered in seasoning and cheese, but not as flavorful as expected.
Service was good, atmosphere was great, but food was underwhelming.
Honestly very average. Driven by this place 1000 times and we wanted to love it. Found it to be just ok.
What a delightful surprise. Excellent grilled food, so very fresh salads, drinks etc., the potato pancake was divine. Worth the wait.
Hope you get Adrian to help you.
