Description: "Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon…" Dalai Lama.At Nectar, our love for cooking is deeply embedded in that belief.Nectar, a sensuous, sumptuous, savory experience, features the Asian-inspired-French-infused signature cuisine of star chef Patrick Feury.Nectar's eclectically creative menu offers the perfect amalgamation of classic French cooking with the freshest, finest, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. From wild Alaskan salmon to Arctic Char to grass-fed beef to free range poultry to locally grown, hand picked organic produce; Nectar is committed to selecting what is best for our patrons as well as our planet. Our dedication to quality is captured in our extensive collection of wines, craft beer and fresh nectar cocktails. We assiduously pair the varietal notes in our wines to consummately complement our aromatic dishes.Such attention to detail is also illustrated in Nectar's architectural combination of artistry and urban beauty. Designed by the New York-based David Rockwell Group, Nectar showcases a bi-level, stone structure with vaulted ceilings that give room to a towering 18-foot silk-screen Buddha. Resplendent in His robed repose, the Buddha's radiance is reflected in Nectar's impressive interior. The dining room's inviting ambiance of fiery orange glows and warm, lemon yellow and chocolate brown banquettes delivers a kindred spirit to Nectar's distinctive menu.

I mention Buddakhan, because that's what Nectar put me in the mind of. The comparison stopped there! Nectar is innovative. We loved our meal (and what a full meal we had!) We started out with the lobster sliders. Very tasty, fresh with good lean pieces of bacon and the bread was fresh and soft (on a Sunday) My wife had... More

This was a friends decision. I went along because it was also his treat. Overall, the resturant was average; the service was average. It was very obvious that the waiter was concentrating on getting the order regardless of the complaints or comments. The food was somewhat cold although it should have been hot. We believed it was more prepared and... More

The consistently good food,the creative drinks and open air ambience are a constant reminder of how to pack them into your restaurant even during the weekdays. My wife claims that they have the best short ribs of any place that she's ever eaten, and she's ordered that dish in a hundred different places.

fantastic food, wonderful service and just all done right- the sushi is amazing but try the filet and fish- its wonderful- the atmosphere is very upscale and makes it a perfect date night or night out with friends. Valet parking makes it quick and try the drink list- a must try and you will be hooked!

This place is WAY too crowded. We had a reservation and showed up 15 minutes early, and it still took the hostess almost an hour to seat us. They were not even apologetic about it. They just gave us some excuse. Not a great start. When we finally got to sit down, the server was very nice and enthusiastic. He... More

Very eclectic menu with an Asian flare. Delicious martinis but it's very pricey and the portions are not terribly big.

Got here at 5 with the restaurant entirely empty. Hostess took us upstairs to the single worst table in the place. Never asked where we'd like to sit. Smart server took us back downstairs. Food is inventive and well-served but we probably won't go back.

Most people who look on TripAdvisor don't get past the first page. So, I have a couple of things to add. First, I've eaten there, probably 30 times, and my wife has eaten there far more. She does lunch there, taking some magazines and enjoying some quiet time. The oysters are fantastic. In the evening, such as this Saturday, it... More

I've been to Nectar a number of times for lunch but never for dinner until last week. What a delicious meal! Everything was wonderful from the appetizers to the dessert. And the setting is particularly beautiful at night. Great place!
