Beautiful decor (high ceilings, great decor and crystal chandeliers all add to the effect). Great wine list, and nice assortment of options on the menu, My scallops were amazing,and gnocchi pasta course was great as well; the pizza we ordered I would give a "good"... Overall portions seemed on the small side given price. Lastly our table location detracted from the experience (on the balcony level) as we felt a little left out of the vibe and view downstairs. Overall I liked it, and am likely to return (but request a table on the main level next time.) Definitely worth checking out.

I went to Nellcote for a birthday dinner with a friend. I have to say that the interior space is very impressive. You feel like you're in a large French mansion that has had modern upgrades! It is classic, yet modern with a touch of bling! In the evening the space is very dimly lit, but it doesn't feel dark as it's a light interior. I have to say that the food did not particularly wow me, but it was definitely good, but nothing too memorable unfortunately. I gave that extra star more for the interior design and fabulous ambiance. All the smartly dressed, beautiful people seem to dine here! I ordered the half Amish chicken, which was very juicy... but it was just a regular tasting chicken.

I was extremely excited to eat here and had high expectations for this place based on what I had seen and read on their website. The space itself is amazing, great decor. Sadly, the food is just average. Sounds like they have a great set of ingredients and ideas but the follow through is just lacking. Service was lacking as well. It felt almost as if we were bothering our waitress by being there. There were maybe 5 tables with people at the time we were dining and she wasn't the only wait staff on hand so it wasn't as if she was stressed/thinly pulled across. I feel I've had better service at a 3am joint with no wait staff near a string of bars. I'm not sure I'd return based on the service experience more so than the food.

I have been a huge fan of Nellcôte's since they opened. The decor is stunning, dramatic even. But I just love it. I've taken my parents a couple times and they couldn't say better things about the place. The staff is always so friendly and helpful, it totally put my parents at ease. It's a great spot to go with groups of friends too! I love their pizza and pasta and especially love that it's never a problem to add a fried egg on top to either! Their venison tartare is one of my favorite dishes too--from any spot. It's perfectly done and well, sinfully delicious. Their brunch is one my favorites in the city as well. They have the perfect selection of sweet and savory and I definitely recommend sharing dishes. It's also one of my favorite spots to grab a cocktail, their bar is gorgeous and their drinks are fantastic!

My first time dining here was the first week it opened and I remember falling in love with the decor and vibe! Each subsequent visit has exceed my expectations in terms of delicious food, amazing service and fun cocktails. I went on my server's recommendation for the 'rock and a hard place' cocktail on my last visit. I'm usually not a huge fan of Campari, but this drink was very well balanced and was the perfect compliment to our shared starters. I will definitely be back!

The drinks are absolutely heavenly and the service is fantastic. The last time I went my server let me change my drink order several times because I couldn't make up my mind. Food is always great (the menu changes a lot, which I love). 6 stars for ambiance. Also, their bathroom is the nicest one I think I've ever used. Their handsoap smells like Paris.
