Nectar Wine Lounge, Burlingame

Anyone been to the new branch of Nectar? It's only a 10 min. drive from home. Wine selection looks decent enough. How's the food?

  1. We went for dinner the first night it opened unknowingly. The service was ill paced, the food was good but the portions were small for the price. It is a tapas kind of concept. We could forgive alot being the first night. But we were one of the only patrons dining versus drinking and we asked multiple servers to check on our food and nobody got back to us. I cannot pardon completely being ignored with first night jitters. We finally flagged down one of the owners and expressed our concern who then comped us wine and dessert. My recommendation is to give them some time as I had no complaints about the food. But frankly the small portions and the prices wouldn't prompt us to go back anytime soon.

    1. I think Nectar is phenomenal. The had a few things they were working out the first 2 weeks, but the food is now perfect for the wines. I highly recomment the fish & chips, spinach, and my favorite...the short ribs. And don't miss the chocolate's light as air and scrumptious!
