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

Have been here on 2 other occasions. The food is outstanding and can highly recommend based on just the quality of food and presentation. I don't understand the reservation system. I can't believe they let people wait just because their allotment of reserved tables. My guest was a very spry 90 year old foodie. She wanted to eat here and... More

We love the farm to table restaurants when we can find them, and this one was a great find! Our waiter was friendly, attentive, and helpful, and we couldn't have asked for a fresher, more delicious meal. I had the flat iron steak, while he had a vegetarian dish that he loved. Although we had a reservation for 6 pm,... More

Went in thinking this was a lunch diner......WRONG! Great food, but it is a bit pricey so expect to use a credit card! Strange set up, and will catch many completely by surprise! Dress seems a bit confusing.....some are dressed to the nines...others in flip flops....needs to be defined better so that people know what to expect.

Thank Koberbutt
