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.

“Asian Cuisine in Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Nectar is an eclectic, hip Asian-fusion style restaurant with delicious food, warm and trendy atmosphere, and great service. You feel like you're in a upscale NY restaurant but you're actually in the suburbs. Inside, splashes black and orange decor are throughout the restaurant, with high ceilings, stone walls with candles in the alcoves, a high top, glass bar in the center, and beautiful, authentic Asian decor. The food was phenomenal but pricey. Be prepared to spend $100 easy. My boyfriend surprised me and took me here for our anniversary, so we knew it was a special occassion. But because it was out anniversary, they gave us a dessert on the house. Our waiter was also great - attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Despite the price, I highly recommend Nectar - It's one of the best Asian-fusion restaurants in the area!

“Trendy venue but too much ambient noise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We enjoyed the venue apart from the ambient noise. All the tables are very close together so you have the opportunity to share in your neighbor's conversation! Probably better for couples than for groups. Food was interesting Fusion. Some meals were starred as spicy but we were not asked how we wanted ours so they arrived a little lacking in flavor. It seemed to be a very trendy venue not really great for 60+ year olds. Valet parking was a bonus.

“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

This place is absolutely fabulous. It has great ambiance, fantastic service, solid wine list and extraordinary food. The lobster fish is to die for. Dishes are exquisitely prepared. If you are in Berwyn, dont miss out on this place.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

One of my favourite restaurants in the area. Great atmosphere and if you like Asian food, this really is the business. Prices are on the high side but reflect the quality.

“A an excellent, beautiful, upscale Asian fusion restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Dined this week with three business associates at Nectar's. Had the bento dim sum and bento sushi as appetizers, very tasty, nice selection and amount for four people. We then each had our own entree, mine was the moo shu pork. Others had various primarily fish dishes. One of my colleagues is native Chinese and like myself found the cuisine to be tasty, with plently of texture and where appropriate spice, in addition to the excellent flavor. Nice service and a beautiful building interior lent a very relaxed, stylish and posh ambiance. Not cheap, quite good.
