I went to Nectar for lunch on a weekday. It was simply the most delicious lunch I have ever eaten! Although it was pricey and the portions were not huge, it was delectable. I had been given a gift card, and ordered the most expensive dish ($29): Sea Salt Crusted Shrimp, Scallop, Beef Tenderloin with stir fried vegetables and a... More

Four of us travel gals got together for a long overdue lunch and decided upon Nectar as a common meeting place. We decided on Pumpkin Soup for two and a shared Crispy Calamari & Edamame - followed by Chicken Pad Thai and a shared Seafood Fried Rice and Shrimp Pad Thai with yet another having Moo Shu Pork.

The food is delicious and sophisticated. At first, it feels a bit loud but you get used to it. It is on the pricey side but it's worth it in my opinion. Not a big fan of the valet but luckily there is a small parking lot next to theirs you can park at.

Not enough parking so they try to demand valet parking only. Food is truly unique and delicious, but comes with an attitude that rises right to the owner/chef. These guys are lucky my wife loves the food, or they wouldn't have our business. My personal favorite is the wild boar lo mein.

Stopped in for a quick dinner Saturday night and found a spot at the bar. Physical atmosphere remains unchanged since I had been here years before when it first opened. This place opened with a big buzz back then and has for the most part held it's own from what I could tell. I ordered the Pork dumplings (4) ,... More

This restaurant specializes in Asian cuisine and the quality is exceptional. The pricing is expensive and the portions are small. Certainly the food is worth waiting for and is delicious. I found the restaurant no easy and very crowded and the seating was uncomfortable. That being said the food is worth the inconvenience.

A pretty room and good vibes make this a fun restaurant for a group dinner. Varied cocktails and decent wine list by the glass. Menu emphasis on sushi & rolls. I had the dumplings to start and then sashimi. Both were good. Be prepared that the service is very paced - they are not rushing you in or out of... More

I took 6 friends for dinner around 9 pm and I was extremely disappointed. The sushi rolls we ordered were falling apart and embarrassingly badly made. It was a nice lively environment but I doubt I would go back.

A fabulous meal and service with the "Johnsons" party of 12 to celebrate the new year. Food was excellent all around and the service was prompt, courteous and efficient. Good value fro the price at $80 per person all told. A bustling venue on the Main line.

I continually write for trip advisor and as it turns out, I was included in a group of six adults (6) who have partaken at "Nectar" previously..I was very impressed with the waitstaff (Utensil placed with the appropriate meal) and the attentiveness of serving at each course.

Description
"Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon…" Dalai Lama.At Nectar, our love for cooking is deeply embedded in that belief.Nectar, a sensuous, sumptuous, savory experience, features the Asian-inspired-French-infused signature cuisine of star chef Patrick Feury.Nectar's eclectically creative menu offers the perfect amalgamation of classic French cooking with the freshest, finest, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. From wild Alaskan salmon to Arctic Char to grass-fed beef to free range poultry to locally grown, hand picked organic produce; Nectar is committed to selecting what is best for our patrons as well as our planet. Our dedication to quality is captured in our extensive collection of wines, craft beer and fresh nectar cocktails. We assiduously pair the varietal notes in our wines to consummately complement our aromatic dishes.Such attention to detail is also illustrated in Nectar's architectural combination of artistry and urban beauty. Designed by the New York-based David Rockwell Group, Nectar showcases a bi-level, stone structure with vaulted ceilings that give room to a towering 18-foot silk-screen Buddha. Resplendent in His robed repose, the Buddha's radiance is reflected in Nectar's impressive interior. The dining room's inviting ambiance of fiery orange glows and warm, lemon yellow and chocolate brown banquettes delivers a kindred spirit to Nectar's distinctive menu.
