Been there many times - guess I've never paid attention to the price of a glass of wine. Clos du Bois chardonay by the glass - $12 or $13. Cost of a bottle to Nero's - $8.00. Let's estimate 5 pours to a bottle. Not...More

The thing I like about this restaurant is that on a Saturday night during the holiday season, they can still serve really good food to a really crowded restaurant, and the service is fantastic!! We were 7 celebrating a birthday on a Saturday night, and...More

I had lunch at Nero's today with two others - excellent service and food. The restaurant is beautiful and clean, the service very prompt, polite, and attentive without being annoying. We shared several apps, entrees and desserts and everything was excellent.

Everything is consistently delicious!!! There is something for every palate! The service is great. Yes can be pricey but it depends on what you order.

This restaurant has been around for quite a while. It's very popular for business lunches and dinners because the food is great and the menu is varied. However, everything is ala carte, so nothing is included with any entree. The side dishes can add up...More
