We weren't planning on going there for dinner, but stumbled upon it on a drive downtown. Quaint dining room - excellent, personal service. We had the guacamole appetizer - you could tell it was freshly made and a great recipe. Had the stuffed chicken and salmon for main entrees. Delicious. Would definitely recommend it and go there again!

This restaurant had great reviews so we decided to go for lunch. Fish tacos tasted good there was three of them to the plate with the side of beans and rice. The chicken Caesar salad had about a cup and a half of salad and maybe a quarter of a chicken breast. The salad cost $14 and was certainly a... More

The place is small and serves seasonal food in a farm to table manner. For that reason and for quality there are limited items in each category on the menu. Aside from that there are a couple specials. Everything sounded delicious but I hadn't been feeling well for the last week so stuck with the simplest meal I could find... More

We save Nomad for special occasions because it's a little more pricey than we usually spend for a typical night out, but the food is wonderful and unique! I'm looking forward to our next visit!

The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The menu was OK. My dinner companion complained of the smell of fish being brought from the kitchen to the dining area. My only comment was "fresh fish doesn't smell". I'll leave it at that. I elected to only have an appetizer - tasty, small portion, and over priced. I would suggest dining... More

We were looking for a different place to go for dinner, and thought of The Nomad Café. So, we looked on-line and checked out the menu. Well, we didn't look at the dinner menu, just lunch, so when we got there, dinner menu. It's different than the lunch menu. But, no big deal, we adjusted. I will say this, we... More

Everything has changed since my last visit over 1 year ago. The interior has been completely renovated. Seating and comfort has been added to the exterior deck. The menu that was always being tweaked is now perfected. I do miss some of the old dishes but they are just background noise to a new, fresh, locally sourced and spectacularly delivered... More
