Unfortunately we waited 13 minutes for a server to approach our table. We checked in with the hostess and she cleared things up and gave us the 1st round of drinks on the house. Nectar is lovely it was just a bad beginning to our evening.

Previous visits were great, but had definitely changed. While the service was excellent as usual, the food was not nearly as good...
Berry Martini was flat like frozen fruit- I added some lemon to give it a lift, but still not much taste. The $16 salmon and peekytoe roll was small, near flavorless and had no presentation, very disappointing. $17 Mango roll was ok, but little flavor as well. Pork buns were heavy, and while the pork belly itself was delicious, there was little other flavor inside and just slabs of iceberg lettuce - of all the greens the chef had to choose from? No other sauce? Felt like we could have gone to any inexpensive sushi place and gotten more flavor. Eggplant had good flavor but the greens were whole and tough to chew (about 6” long). Best thing on the table was the side of vegetables!
Hopefully they turn it back around, it’s a beautiful place.

Our 4 time to Nectar in the past 5 months and our 1st time we were disappointed. It was very chilly for all who went to dinner my husband included. They were out of their amazing Brussels sprouts which we always order 2-3 orders of. Waiter forgot a side order we ordered. Sad because we have been loving nectar but this time it wasn’t as good as our previous visits.

service was very good. edamame dumplings were outstanding! crispy calamari and edamame were delicious. steamed pork buns, eh ok. would not get again.
roasted striped bass was outstanding, cooked to perfection
moo shu pork and shrimp red curry also very good. nectar lo main and shrimp pad thai also very good!!
atmosphere very relaxing.
little pricey. valet system is a requirement & annoying when u can easily park yourself in the back. if u want to valet, then they can just leave the front spots open for that but the whole back is easily accessible to park yourself.
all in all a very good dining experience, except for the parking.

Nectar is always an excellent dining experience. Unfortunately, my wife and I hadn't been to Nectar recently but we came back with a group of 8 on a Sunday night, and I remember how great the food is, with wonderful service and a lovely dining facility. From the various appetizers and entress to the few desserts that were chosen, everything was delicious with not a morsel remaining. Thank you for serving us a great meal, and as always, I highly recommend dining at Nectar.

Our visit to Nectar was to celebrate our anniversary. We had a nice spot in the corner which was perfect for us. The food was absolutely amazing. The bento box for 2 is my favorite appetizer ever. My husband got the King Kong Roll which included filet mignon and he loved it. I got the filet mignon dinner which was perfectly cooked and so tasty. We don't live close to Nectar so this isn't an every day spot for us, but it is a treat. The service was also wonderful. Our server received a hug when the table next to us sat down, so you know he is well liked but his customers. Overall, if we lived closer, I would want to go at least once a week.

Had a lovely birthday lunch at Nectar the other day. We started with the Calamari/Edamame app which was great. All three of us chose entrees off of the Express Lunch menu. Delicious Crispy Chicken, but we weren't wild about the Pork Sandwich. The portions were quite generous so we were too full for dessert. But that didn't stop our very thoughtful server from bringing us a birthday treat anyway. So sweet1 Our server and service was excellent! Cocktails were great, too! Always a pleasure to dine at Nectar!
