Our anniversary dinner was wonderful. Our server was a delight and had great timing. My husband had the New Zealand rack of lamb which he declared "perfect". My garlic shrimp were moist, flavorful and came with the loveliest presentation of vegetables. The wine selection is extensive here and while limited, the bar has had a nice selection of liqueurs to... More

We enjoyed a very nice dinner at this charming French restaurant. Scallops were beautifully prepared; New Zealand rack of lamb consisted of a dramatic 4 double chops, nicely presented. Attentive service and nice wine selection.

We walked in early on a Saturday without reservations. They were very accommodating. We had one of the best meals we've had in months. We both ordered the lamb. It was prepared perfectly. Service was impeccable. Don't miss this place, we will be back!

...with Terrible service! The food was very good but the service was poor and really ruined the evening. It became the running joke of the table at how many times we could be ignored or have an ordered item not delivered. We were not even offered coffee after our meal. Every request we made (more water, bread) was treated as... More

If it wasn't for the recommendation of our host at nearby B&B I'm sure we wouldn't have been here and experience a great dinner. As I saw in other reviews, who would have thought grilled snails would be good...not just good, GREAT. The amazing snails were followed up with lamb for me and scallops for my wife, it's seems at...

we all had the lamb and our plates were all empty at the end....compliments to the chef, and the vegetables that came with the dish were delicious. Our waitress gave us great service and wow she also made our martinis and they were perfect!

My husband and I are never disappointed with The Nest. The snails, something I thought I would hate, were so delicious and pretty. The salad was light and refreshing but the scallops were heavenly. I also love lavender and so I just had to have the lavender ice cream. Nice way to end our meal. The staff was courteous and... More

Since then we've visited a few times...the last was under-whelming and the staff seem unimpressed that we were married in their dining room and held our reception here. Disappointing, but perhaps they changed ownership hands. Still, while we weren't expecting anything "free", a simple enthusiastic response would have gone pretty far. The only reason that I gave them a "very... More

The menu is expensive but the food is prepared with great skill and finesse. There is a bit of an ostentatious attitude about the place, but perhaps they earn the right to that because the place is unique. They hadn't solved a silly little problem with the music which, well chosen and pleasant, would play the same track over and... More

Yes... YES! So much to love about Nest. Where to start. The location is a little cottage right off of Washington Street. You will blow by it and not even realize there is bunch of great food, just waiting for your attention. Slow down and turn into the parking lot. I would also make sure you have a reservation, since... More
