    I noticed a lot of positive reviews and I agree that Nest has a great vibe. And if you are there to spend time at the bar it is really a great place. However, the food was average. We tried few different dishes but none of them were really over the top and the most disappointing was the moussaka because it was too dry. Though, the service was great.

    Our server was friendly and attentive but not the hostess. They only set the table for two when we were four and we had to wait about 15min to have our table set up properly. Not to mentioned other tables were set up before guest arrived. Food was ok not something I will come back and eat again. Although, great ambiance and music it is the best in the valley .

    We were in the area for our anniversary and tried the restaurant and loved the place. We had excellent service, our server Francis was wonderful, and loved the live music. The food options were good and the preparation was good as well. My husband and I were both very satisfied with our choice.

    Loved the food and great service. But the noise from the bar made it impossible to hear the person seated next to you. I would go back but only if I could get in and out before the bar music began.

    No real complaints, it just seemed very ordinary. Our server was attentive, food came out promptly and was good...not delicious, but certainly not complaint-worthy. Maybe it is an Open Table top 100 spot, but I don't know what that means. For me, the experience was neutral. I wouldn't recommend it my friends, but I wouldn't discourage anyone from going there. Just one person's opinion.

    It was a comedy of errors upon arrival. The hostess removed some of the table ware while awaiting our 3rd guesst and, so I had no bread plate, our 3rd guest had 2 napkins and we hasd to rearrange the silver, once again. I ordered the moussaka and was told about 10 minutes after ordering, they had no more moussaka, so I ordered the specialty pasta. I proceeded to order a prosecco and once again, was told they had no more. The server was so apologetic, but I had no worries about anything, since I know The Nest has wonderful food. Our server was wonderful! I will go there again and next time, order the moussaka in advance!

    The bread, soup, salad, escargot was very good, 5 stars. I ordered Seared Ahi, disappointed. The Ahi was not fresh, the coloring was unusual almost as if it had been pre seared and then frozen and thawed with coloring added. It didn't taste bad but Ahi is something best served fresh. Don’t offer or serve Ahi if not fresh. My wife had the cabbage roll, she asked before ordering if it had a tomato sauce, the server said yes, a very light tomato sauce, it was a broth no tomato sauce. Fortunately, they had marinara that we asked for that did well. Maybe we will be back and try standard items like a filet mignon and salmon.

    Salmon was over done. I ordered it prepared medium rare and it was very "done". They offered to give me a new one, but I was so hungry, I just ate it. Everyone else at the table was satisfied with their meal. My husband really liked his pork chop.

    We booked the Nest to celebrate my best friends 60th. We usually love the Nest but we found that the prices are now very high, the service was good but we felt rushed, the waiter brought a slice of cake and candle out, which was nice but this while my fiends daughters had stepped away to the ladies room so we sang happy birthday while they were not at the table. We were a very good table/check for them, we all ordered cocktails, appetizers , entrees and some of us dessert, this while the restaurant was practically empty so there was no need to rush. The waiter brought the check before I asked for it, which is a major pet peeve of mine and not smart from a restaurant perspective as we might have ordered something else. Bottom line, nice but not worth the sky high prices or maybe go for the early bird special

    Not what it used to be - at least not for me. Food was fairly good and price was ok since it was Early Bird specials. Would not pay full price. Drinks were way overpriced - $12 for a simple cocktail - never again. 4 people at the table - mine was just ok - 1 said his was very good -2 never made any comment which tells me everything since they were our guests. Totally embarrassing especially with the clown (really - a clown in full costume and makeup) that showed up in the dining room. Completely ruined the evening. What is that all about anyway?

    Outstanding in every way! Our server Allison made entree recommendations that were excellent. The dining area is adjacent to the bar area which proved to be awesome as well. The owner Kevin and his band did a fantastic job of keeping the place rockin all night long and when we did have to leave their was a line down the side of the building to get in !! Loved it and we will be back.

    The restaurant was very nice. The food and service were really good. The bar advertised entertainment to start at 7:00PM. There were not too people there. The bartender was not really personable.
