Perfect Dinner

This is the second time we've eaten here. The Nest would give any restaurant in Dallas a run for their money.

We closed this place down on Thursday night. Our flight was late and we were starved. My daughter in law made the reservation. Everything was delicious and nicely served. Loved the ambiance of the old house. A great dinner place!

Lovely old house converted to a prime dining. Tonight a wonderful mussel soup followed by a very nice salad and then red fish with a cilantro burre blanc, jasmine rice, spinach and sautéed beets. Desert profiteroles with coffee ice cream created by the chef completed by chocolate sauce. Wine was Fume Blanc and complimented nicely. Very attentive wait staff.

We had a wonderful meal at the Nest. We were early, but they were ready and waiting. The wine was good, the food was better. I had the Red Fish, which I never had before and it was excellent. Didn't have dessert. Would go back in a flash.

We went to Nest restaurant on a Saturday night a last minute decision and more or less got the last table. We were shown promptly to our table. We decided not to have a starter as wanted to have a dessert instead and knew we couldn't manage 3 courses. I had lamb cooked medium, the portion was large and so... More

At the suggestion of our B&B host (Matt from Full Moon Inn), we dined here on a Sunday night. We were warmly greeted and taken to the front room of what used to be a near-town residence. The transition to cosy restaurant was beautifully done, using art from local galleries and nice linens on the tables. Every part of our... More

Have to agree with Alyssa T. We just walked in off the street.on a Sunday evening. Again the place was about 1/3 full. I truly believe they would just as soon we left. The French onion soup was not as good as Mimini's. The Lavender Carrot soup was a winner.And so it goes .Little overrated food and no warmth from... More

The Nest had great reviews from locals and TripAdvisor. It may have been an off night, but the service was poor (and it wasn't that busy). I expect much more from a restaurant that charges approx $30/plate. Our waitress ignored us a great deal, appeared irritated when asked a question, and was scarce overall. The restaurant was about 1/3 capacity... More
