The Nest Ratings and Reviews
We enjoyed the delicious food and excellent service. They made us feel like family from the moment we arrived. We had the Sole Piccata, Filet Mignon and the Porcini Ravioli. All of it was cooked perfectly. We loved that the owners were present and friendly, and that they interacted with guests and staff, that is so nice to see nowadays. They checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our experience, we felt like they really cared and wanted us to know it. We will definitely be back and highly recommend. 👍👍
Although I checked "quiet", it is quiet before the music starts at 7. That said, it still doesn't get too loud in the dining room and I find it enjoyable to hear the bar music in the dining room. The bar would be a little more to the louder range. We went for the early bird dinner and not only was the food delicious, but the price is excellent! Plus you get soup or salad and desert with the early bird meals. We also ordered escargot. It is to die for!! A must if you love escargot. The dining room was decorated beautifully for halloween. Not goulish, just cozy and elegant. This is one of our "go-to" restaurants when we are in town.
Came for friends Birthday. Dinner reservations on a Saturday night for 8:30p. The place was jamming, which was pretty cool. I just think the establishment is to small for the amount of people they let in. The live music is fantastic!
On to the food: the Steaks were very good, however under seasoned. The garlic potatoes where very flavorful. The sautéed spinach was bland and needed some serious seasoning. We finished with a piece of chocolate cake which was heavy, but delicious.
Interesting local restaurant with a wide variety on the menu. I had the burek-a spinach and feta pie and a meat pie. Both were good and served with a nice variety of vegetables. I would recommend going for the entertainment and sitting in the bar for appetizers. Lively crowd!
Our experience was excellent, the food was delicious, the live music was wonderful: live singing and piano entertainment in one bar area and a DJ dance area in the room and patio in back. It is obvious that the owners care about their customers and take pride in providing the best in meals, music and atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
We had several extremely noisy tables near us where the groups came in already with too much wine or something. It is a noisy restaurant but these girls were extreme. Our food was good but somehow not wonderful like the last time we were in . We will return on a Tuesday when the more boisterous crowds aren’t shouting foolishly. It is a lively, fun place to dine occasionally when we are in the desert.
Our waitress, Tuesday, was very sweet! We were very pleased with the food, and service. The Nest is a lot of fun for a night out also. They have live music early evening and a DJ later on. It can get pretty loud, so if you want to got just for dinner, I recommend requesting outdoor seating. Great spot to get together with friends.
The restaurant is a favorite with locals, I hadn’t been there in a long time and found it extremely noisy. The food and service is fine and even with the noise my friends and I were happy. I must say our waiter Raul was. very accommodating ,, a nice touch. The bar has been enlarged since I was there last, it’s a happening bar and music is good, not for older adults!
I think Dixie & Kevin have made it a huge success.
We were a party of two. Service was geared to large parties. Those of us in small groups were on our own. We sat outside during a warm evening. We had to ask for water which was never refilled. I ordered from their summer special menu and picked one of the first courses listed. The waiter came back later and told me that it was a mistake, they no longer included the appetizer I ordered as part of the special menu. I couldn't believe a busy restaurant, with so many options and which made the error by giving me an incorrect menu did not honor my choice. That alone will prohibit any return on our part. We live in the area and realize that a busy restaurant won't miss our business, but we do have friends who will know of our unpleasant experience
This was my first time dining at the Nest. They offered an early bird menu which appeared to be a good value, however I chose a wedge salad with The shrimp scampi for my main entree. The wedge was just ok with watered down dressing. The main entrée had very little flavor and was also very watered-down. I don't know if the sauce was watery or if they didn't drain the pasta enough. My boyfriend said the same thing about his ceaser and chicken fettuccine. Good sized portions and reasonably priced however I do not believe that we will be dining there again.
Francis, our server, was excellent. The escargot was perfect, the sole piccata was perfectly cooked. The liquor was a bit pricey - $11 for Tito's vodka. Overall we had a good time in a fun atmosphere. Come for the food - stay for the dancing.
We celebrated our Dad's 91rst birthday with a wonderful dinner and dancing afterwards. The food was really good and the service was impeccable. The manager/ owner went above and beyond to make sure that we were very happy! I would recommend this place for a fun filled evening to anyone😊
We had a lovely Saturday night dinner and took advantage of the summer menu. Such a good value for a great dinner including desert which was a delicious carrot cake. We will definitely go back and not to mention the fact that it is so convient to our home in Indian Wells.
