Described in a guide as the spot for dining and dancing - Motown, good soul music..... We had a reservation for 7.45 but didn't get seated until nearly 8.30. The music was unidentifiable. Cutlery dirty. Beet salad had about 2 walnut halves and 1 spoon of cheese with a lot of spinach. Looked a bit like a pick up joint... More

My friend said the cabbage rolls were the best he has had. There is a lively piano bar, and a small dance floor. One of the owners was on site and mixed... More

This place is packed, a bit on the loud side, but yummy food. We had a reservation and it was packed by the time we got in and loud. However we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. I ordered the chefs choice of Sole encrusted with Parmesan. It was very light and delicious served over penne pasta with lots of perfectly cooked... More

Great place for dinner. Very broad wine list. Extensive menu. My Caesar salad with generous helping of anchovies was as good as I've had in a long time. The eastern European dishes attracted us. I had stuffed peppers and enjoyed them. Next, I'll try goulash. Helpful service.

We had dinner after a performance at the McCullum theatre and it was enjoyable in every way. We had entrees from the "early bird " menu and all were very good. I had the cabbage rolls and I would definitely recommend them. Cocktails were pricey, but very good. Service was excellent and the dining room is upscale and inviting. We... More

The people watching was a true experience for a Tuesday night outing with friends. The diverse menu made dinner choices interesting and the food was ok. The friendly and helpful service helped to round up the culinary experience for the evening. After dinner, we were able to transition to the night club for some fun music and dancing. Interesting mix... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation. We got there at 6:15 on a Saturday night in December. We had attempted to get reservations online but was informed their online server was not working. It did not appear busy when we arrived so we requested a table and the lady who seated us asked "could we eat fast" even... More

I started planning my 50th birthday celebration 9 months ago (knowing it would be an epic night). I didn't want to go to just "any" restaurant and risk having horrible food or customer service. I knew that the owners & Executive Chef at "The Nest" would take all of my guests on a culinary journey of pure decadence. Whether you... More
