I've been here many times with my mom (dinner) and with my sister (lunch) and have yet to have anything less than a great experience. The food is creative and fresh. Not many other local restaurants have a relationship with local farms, and if they do they charge much more than Nomad. Because the menu changes frequently you get the... More

Went with my family on a Tuesday night. I ordered the enchiladas- didn't like the face I had to order rice on the side- seemed a little tacky. My grandma had the pork special and we had a flatbread for an appetizer as well as guacamole dip. I would go back as the food and service were very nice.

Love the enchiladas and homemade salsa. Everything on the menu is freshly made. Have been here many times and the staff are very friendly.

They have taken a building that used to be a number of different places that failed and turned the location into a winner. Reservations are strongly recommended because of the small intimate dining are, but the food is very good and they are happy to vary from the menu items to give you what you want.

Don't let the location put you off nor the building. This place is one of the top fine dining experiences in Melbourne and Brevard. Great menu and professional service are accents for the real stars - the tastes and flavors that come out of the kitchen. This is a place I look forward to enjoying for years to come.

Service was good, but found the food disappointing. It was flavorful, but must have been sitting for a while because it was lukewarm and there was no shrimp as listed in the seafood enchilada and very little crab. Size of all entrees was disappointing.

Still a good place to eat but the value for your money is not as good as it once was. Lunch specials no longer include soup and prices through out the menu have increased. The specials are not as good has they once were, now mostly sandwiches and salads when they use to more gourmet menu items. Service is okay... More
