    We had not been to Nectar in a few years, but it is just as wonderful as we remember it from a few years ago! We enjoyed the bao buns, spicy tuna roll, lobster pad thai, braised beef, ice cream & smores dessert. The service was wonderful as well.

    Have driven past this restaurant for years, so we thought for our anniversary we would finally try it. Have to say was disappointed. It was really overpriced Chinese food. Had the Braised short rib and was not that great. It should melt in your mouth and it did not. The ends were dry and it had a little to much fat on it for the price you were paying. My partner had the chicken and shrimp and said that it could have had a little bit more chicken in it.

    While I usually find the food generally outstanding, last night’s dinner was just average . The edamame dumplings were amazing, as usual, but the lamb chops, while generous in portion size, were not very flavorful .

    We began dinner with the chicken curry dumplings, which were advertised with a chili pepper on the menu and came with a "spicy" sauce. I detected no heat and more generally, the sauce was bland. The dumplings themselves were simply fine. For mains we ordered the wok chili tenderloin of beef and the filet mignon. The tenderloin was cooked excellently but unfortunately lacked flavor. Other than the few pieces of sliced jalapeno, it again lacked heat. The filet was cooked properly, but similarly to the tenderloin lacked serious flavor. The croquettes the steak was served with was actually quite good, but I didn't pay $45 for dressed up tater tots. Likewise, the blue cheese and spinach dumplings were a unique take that I had not seen before, but did not justify the price of admission. Surprisingly the hot fresh mini doughnuts ended the meal on a positive note. Essentially just fried dough balls, the caramel coffee and "spiced" (with cinnamon, not chili) chocolate sauces were generic. The raspberry vanilla sauce was excellent, and I would literally purchase this for use at home. Dessert saved the meal, but it feels like something I could have gotten anywhere else. I also ordered a jalapeno infused tequila and pineapple drink; it lacked heat (a common theme) and surprisingly lacked sweetness as well. It was simply fine. The experience feels like it was reduced to be palatable to the rich and tasteless; I simply mean to say that at this price point something should be exceptional, maybe I ordered the wrong things, although I was told the tenderloin was the most popular item, but the food was missing any kind of "wow" factor. Put another way: it feels like Nectar was curated to feel adventurous or exotic to those that dislike leaving their comfort zone. Overall, Nectar was entirely inoffensive but nothing was incredible; $120 for two before alcohol could simply be spent at many other establishments, and at that price I simply cannot recommend Nectar.

    We enjoyed our meals and drinks. Service was very slow, at least for our table (two of us). The table of four next to us had their orders taken before ours (we arrived 10-15 minutes before them) and it took a long time for our appetizers and entrees to come out (again, not the case with the table next to us, their appetizers and meals came out promptly). Our orders were not customized and items that were on the menu. Waiter did not check on us, we flagged him down when we needed something (got his attention as he was checking in in the table next to us). Understand yesterday was Mother’s Day but service was not up to par. Not sure we’ll go back.

    Second time at Nectar and another great experience with one exception. $120 for lunch (with only non-alcoholic drinks) is too much. Something needs to be considered and/or adjusted for me to take a lunch date there again…

    Always an incredible dining experience. The energy was high on a Tuesday night - it was fun to be there. The food remains delicious with every bite. We had a couple of sushi rolls and the Wok Chili Tenderloin of Beef is an all-time favorite. The new burrata with pistachio and figs is a fresh addition to the appetizer list.
