First time visiting this restaurant. This is an old gas station owned by a family friend years ago. This is a farm to table, and we were educated that some dishes can take time due to the chef not having some things ready made. Mom asked for the chicken salad sandwich without the bread. It arrived on a bed of... More

Great Farm to Table food. This little place has a huge menu and everyone was happy with their choices but I find I really like some things more than others here. The Nachos are the only dish I have had here that I cannot rave about. I can always count of fresh however and that is important to me. Large... More

OMG such a tiny place with great fresh wholesome food. The menu is small and the flare is wholesome and healthy fresh food. I love love this place. An eggplant sandwich to die for. YUM

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.

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.
