This was my first time at The Nest, the guests I went with have been countless times and recommended the restaurant very highly. The location is nice and the interior is beautiful. The service we received was very good, but our appetizer was terrible. We ordered the mussels in wine sauce, and instantly we could tell the smell was slightly off, and several of the mussels were closed. Upon further inspection, the mussels were indeed rotten on the inside, with a foul waste-like smell. After telling our waitress, she simply said they would be removed from the bill, not offering any other apologies. The chef also did not make an appearance, especially since the table across from us ordered the same mussels and had the same issue, sending them back immediately. Apart from that experience, the rest of the meal was heavenly. The lamb chops are the best I have ever had! It's a shame the appetizer and the staffs behavior set a damper to the evening.

Delightful place with divine food. Upscale food in a old farm house with table clothes and great wine selection.
The mussels are soooo good

Open for dinner Thurs-Sun. Great dinner served in 2 small dining rooms. The portions were very generous. The wine list had a nice balance in local and non-local wines. The rack of lamb was a full rack. The mussels appetizer was 2 lbs of mussels (a bit much). The stuffed shrimp included 5 shrimp again generous. The lavender ice cream was a nice lite dessert. Definitely worth the trip.

I would have given 5 stars but because of their slow service. We were 5 for all girl's trip and one of our friend recommended this restaurant for dinner. We were very satisfied with their offerings. We ordered the mussels for appetizer and it was one of the best. One ordered the shrimp, the scallops, the quail and chicken. All were in excellent order. But the service was slow and seems like only one main waitress with help. When the bill came with only one check but split with 5 different visa cards. Instead of charging for 22% like it said on the bill but charged us 26% instead. They were very apolegetic and wanted to return the difference but we said to keep the money. We were happy with the meal and wine itself. If I do go back I would watch my bill what they charge. It was a very cute house with different rooms with small tables. Could be very romantic.
