We enjoyed a relaxing Sunday afternoon at Nektar. Michael was our server and he was great. He had wonderful recommendations and was very attentive. We enjoyed the octopus, the Shrimp Santorini, and the short rib flatbread. The Shrimp Santorini was not what I was expecting,...but it was so delicious! I never would have ordered it if I had seen a picture because I am not a fan of shrimp in a tomato base, but I would have missed out on an incredible dish! My husband and I both thought it was the best dish that we ordered. We also ordered the pork tamales and were a little disappointed with them. The pork seemed a bit dry. The octopus was good and we also were surprised with a hard seltzer that Michael recommended. I don’t usually like hard seltzers, but this was unlike any hard seltzer I have ever had. It was flavorful and had a little sweetness to it. So glad Michael recommended it! I can’t wait to go back the new time we are in New Hope!More

We've been wanting to try Nektar for a while, and it did not disappoint. The wine bar features upscale wine, whiskey and beer (including flights) and numerous small plates. We went for my hubby's birthday. On a weekend, we reserved about 3 weeks in advance....Really lovely inside, and enjoyed the food. Our server, Aphrodite, was attentive and answered our questions. We asked to pace to selections, and chose 4 total. My husband had the pinot noir flight, and I had the Elk Cove, which I love. All of the small plates were good (my least favorite was the tuna poke, a bit salty, and my fave the heirloom tomato flatbread, very fresh). Definitely a special occasion kind of place, so plan accordingly in terms of prices. Very enjoyable and we would definitely return.More

Classic case of web page not portraying what the place is like....notice the empty pictures and illusion of wide open spaces on the webpage. In reality this place is packed and not easily offerings their "tastings" as advertised. We made it a point to specifically...come here based on web data (boy am I stupid), had the difficult and ridiculous priced parking which is the Village of New Hope. We waited close to an hour to get in, then left after receiving no service at all. Waste of timeMore

Just ok…not awful and not the best. Food was presented nicely. The server was a bit snobby when it came to his whiskey knowledge…definitely didn’t need that attitude. Timing of the food coming out was off as well. Not sure I would return.

I can’t say enough about this place before covid and during covid. Been here many times and have never had a bad meal, bad service or bad wine. We were staying at The Carriage house for an overnight stay and decided Nektar is where we...would eat. We had reservations and requested inside upstairs facing an open window and the said they would do their best to accommodate. The place was jam packed and the very accommodating hostess told us she had a table right by the window but the window was full. She then showed us the open windows and tables facing Mechanic street. We said that’s perfect because we wanted to see the other side facing Karla’s. Not only was it the perfect spot with the AC blowing right near us but the bartender was so schooled in his knowledge of the flights of wine that we asked for. We knew we would be eating a lot of tapas. So we ordered the Korean wings, roasted beet salad with goat cheese arugula and candied pecans, octopus with mango and a balsamic glaze as well as the tuna and octopus tacos. Everything was to die for. Our room wasn’t ready and we had that beautiful memory if that truffle burger we had a few years back so my husband ordered it while we waited for our room to be ready. I only ate a small piece but it was better than what I had remembered. The food, the ambiance and the service was impeccable. I hate to say this but it blew Stella’s out of the water for us as far as food. Can’t wait to get back here again.More

We went to Nektar for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed both the cocktails and the Tapas. The Korean Ribs were terrific & the Beef Wellington excellent. Service was great. Plan to go back for dinner next time!

Great place. Tapas were amazing! Our server was wonderful, she knew exactly what wine I would like, just by asking a few questions. We had Korean wings, bruschetta, prawns and a charcuterie board. Everything was fantastic. Atmosphere is really pretty too. I highly recommend.

The food we had - octopus, flatbread & duck salad was pretty good but not exceptional. My husband thought the duck tasted more like pastrami than duck. The wine list was very good and our bottle of white was perfectly chilled. Service was quick &...pleasant. One bad feeling was caused by the the reservation process: no reservations on the same day. + We were told they only reserve 1/4 of seats & they wouldn't be too busy so not to worry, Still we ended up eating @ the bar (at 5:45) & after us all were told there was a 40 min. wait. Seems like a scam to ensure full seats but not provide good customer service.More

Definitely must go here if you enjoy tapas. Service is good. Ambiance is great. Extensive wine, beer, and liquor selection with flights. Meatball sliders, short rib, wings, tamales, and grilled cheese, apples, bacon a must.
