I've been coming to Nirvana for a few years now and keep coming back because of the whole experience. The staff truly wants you to have something you'll enjoy: food or wine. Chopped salad for lunch or flatbread or the shrimp and scallops are my...More

Mike our server was very good, his recommendations were spot on. The crab cakes had a touch of spice that put them as some of the best I've had. I also recommend the Tequila flight. The square ice in our Manhattan was something we'll remember

If being able to brag about paying too much for too little is important, then this is the place for you. Cheese plate appetizer had slivers of cheese and fruit for $19. The special was two scallops and two oversized, tough shrimp with a little...More
