I went there with my husband, my best friend, and her boyfriend. We went on New Year's when they had a special menu. The food was inventive, delicious, and the presentation was fantastic! A great twist on familiar dishes without being pretentious or over bearing! Pricing was reasonable for what was offered, and the staff was friendly. Since it was... More

Great service. The food was truly delicious. The portions are fairly small but it was just enough for me.

We have had 2 experiences at this restaurant. 1) we had excellent service, a well prepared meal, although I felt it was pricey, we had an enjoyable experience. 2) we had a reservation, got seated immediately and ignored for approxiimately for the next half hour - so we left. You figure it out.

Great ambiance, appetizers fab, short ribs, steak tips, etc. Three of us had salmon with quinoia and it was boring. Everyone else loved their dinner. And we celebrated at birthday and the cake was amazing and beautifully decorated. Wait staff were fab. You won't... More

This visit I went for lunch. I got there as they opened and went in right behind a group of 6 or so younger people who went to the bar which is right as you enter. I stood by the little hostess stand as the bartender talked and joked with the group. I was in plain sight, larger then life,... More

For Middletown, New York, Nina's presents as an upscale, high end restaurant. The restaurant itself is beautiful. A good place for a romantic dinner, night out with friends or to celebrate. When you look at the menu you see offerings and dishes with names you would expect to see in an upscale NYC restaurant. Another thing you immediately notice when... More

The food was excellent, service very good. I tried one of the craft brews but found it had a lousy after taste. Overall I try to like this restaurant, but my wife and I find the food quality and service to be very spotty. Some nights - like last night - we love it. Other nights not so much. There's... More
