We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday in July 2014. All I could say is………..We loved our lunch. Our sandwich came with a side salad and waffle chips. Well worth the price. The atmosphere was nice and the service was great. We can’t wait to go back.

We haven't been to Nina's in a while and decided to go tonight. The short ribs were delicious and the chocolate croissant bread pupping to die for. Service was excellent.

We've eaten here a few times always walking out happy. There are some traditional dishes as well as some creative ones as well. The atmosphere is kind of modern rustic.

This is BY FAR the best, coolest, swankiest, "only" place to go out in Middletown for dinner and/or drinks. Growing up in Middletown almost my whole life, then moving to NYC and now living in Rome, Italy, I can say I've seen many restaurants / bars in many settings. This is easily the closest I've come to civilization when traveling... More

I rarely write restaurant reviews but felt compelled for this. My wife and I were in the area to visit family. Although the restaurant had mixed reviews, it does sport a Zagat rating so we gave it a try for Sunday brunch. The first two menu items we ordered were not available: no quiche and no challa bread for the... More

The food was great! The atmosphere, and service were great! The location is not far from Crystal run hotels. Worth the 5 to 10 minute drive. I would recommend it!

We went for a special event and wanted a romantic atmosphere. It was after dark when we arrived, so we actually couldn't see the all the details of the decor inside but it appreared to be a bare bones 'chic'. The food was very good, although pricey for the area. The night was cold and although we were sitting next... More

Good food, nice atmosphere, but very pricey. There are other places in the area where the food is just as good, and more affordable.

Have not returned since New Year's Eve 2012 celebration with 3 other couples. Service was tardy and distracted...food quality just Ok; they had run out of some of specials by 8:30pm. Chef/owner appears to possess an inflated ego; not considering customer reviews! Giving them the benefit of the doubt that they may have stepped up their game since our last... More
