Nightingale Ratings and Reviews
Menu is family style so it’s suggested you share. Portions were on the smaller size. Overall fairly good experience, the ambience and service were spectacular. Food was just okay.
This was our first vistit to Nightingale since it opened its doors almost two years ago. Why did we wait so long ??!! David Hawksworth hits the ball out of the park with this place.. From the front of the house, to the bar and wait staff, to the exceptional kitchen, there simply is no weak link to this place. For a persnickety humbug like myself, that is saying something. What I really liked was that the staff did not "RUSH" to clear our table, no pushy wine pouring or plates being cleared.. this is a great staff all around.. I'll need a seperate review for the food which was truly notable.. the hangar steak with the horseradish cream was truly subline.. oh and that wine list !!! To paraphrase Arnold Schwartzeneger.. "we'll be back" !! 5 stars all around.. top of the pops David!!!
Amazing service. Fried chicken was delicious. Didn’t love the pizza we ordered but everything else was very good.
Food and service was fantastic!
Andy the somm was amazing. His pairings and attention to detail were unforgettable!
This place has become a fast favourite for me - the food is delicious, and the fact that everything is shareable means you can have a little bit of many delicious things (more people in your group means more variety!). Service is exceptional. Reservations required unless you have a lot of time - this place is always busy. Request a table upstairs for the best ambience.
Welcoming environment and amazing food, thank you!
Had lunch here with a friend and enjoyed the varied menu and delicious food.
It was an excellent evening for our Son's birthday. Great food, service and ambiance.
Delicious food with many different and interesting options. Best to share meals amongst the table, so you don’t miss out on what everyone else is eating. Friendly and efficient service. Great buzz, nifty decor and tremendous high ceiling. A fantastic place to eat and enjoy yourself with family and friends.
Best of the best, talented chef, impressed by lovely fusion of flavours
Excellent food, beyond our expectations. The service was attentive and patient as we took time to review all items on the menu and select. We took the waiter's suggestion to let her determine which items to come when and we're delighted with the meal and our evening.
Great lunch spot for sharing news and delicious food.
We had a great dinner. We were initially seated downstairs near the entrance. We did not find this romantic or cozy or ideal having a good dining experience. Our waiter got us a table upstairs which was far superior and had a much better ambiance. Our "new" waiter was most attentive and the food excellent! We will definitely return, but the downstairs/ground level part of the restaurant is more conducive to being a lounge / bar atmosphere, than an upscale dining spot.
Food was quite good; rather expensive, so not great from those perspectives; but the setting was very nice and the service was excellent.
The ambiance, service, and food were fantastic. I will definitely be back and also recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful dining experience!
I liked the ambiance, and the food was so yummy. It can get loud, but the environment is worth it.
No modifications even if the last ingredient is sprinkled nuts they still won’t hold off. Slightly outrageous. You aren’t a Michelin Star restaurant.
Always delicious small plate experience. It is "lively" , so not ideal for quiet dining.
My boyfriend and I came up here for our anniversary dinner and we loved it! The servers were so kind, and even though our table was ready they just sat us at the bar to wait.
Excellent food and service. I would definitely recommend it to friends.
Our lunch was excellent as usual. The service was excellent. The fried chicken was excellent too!
Beautiful meal with fresh ingredients in a modern, buzzy environment with great service. Excellent wine list.
Contacted the restaurant in advance about being celiac yet when I arrived there were no large plates I could eat and they offered me a plain kids meal. Too many servers so our designated driver had to keep repeating to not pour more wine in her glass - and they come frequently for wine pouring. Forgot one of the coffees, but brought a bill instead before even requesting.
Every item we ordered was incredible!!! Most notable: broccolini, steak, flourless brownie. Enjoy was tasty cocktails as well! Definitely recommend it for any occasion.
Excellent food and service!
Service was okay, Food was terrible. Brought back our dinner. Don't order the duck
Good is good but they sat us (VIP) at a small table . There were 5 of us and the table is actually for 4 . The damn place was wide open . We were the only table at that time . The lady date to tell me they have a full house . Not going back
That is Not to treat a VIP
Excellent service - Amazing food
Hard to get a reservation at this relatively trendy new restaurant. We sat upstairs at a great table overlooking the lower level. Place was packed and very noisy. Our waiter suggested we order 4 dishes for the two of us to share. It was hard to come up with 4 things we could order and one of the four was a pizza so that says a lot about the limited menu. Apple salad was good, pizza was OK but dont ask for ingredient changes-not allowed-Fried chicken was hot but tasteless and Arctic Char was sour in taste and we picked away at it for a while. Service desintigrated because the waiter had so many tables to serve. We were disturbed every time the staff served the table beside us because it was so tight and we got tired of that. Glass of wine was good but waiter never asked if I would like another until we had ordered a recommended desert which was bland and tasteless. I used hand signals to get the waiters attention most of the night. $100 plus tip. Couldn't wait to get out of there after an hour and ten minutes. Save your money and go somewhere else for a decent meal at that price.
My husband and I live in the neighbourhood and are regular customers.
We love Nightingales
Food was excellent, a little loud, but great evening
Delicious food. Great service. Cool ambiance. A place you can keep going back to with friends and office mates.
Great experience in every aspect!
We sat upstairs with a great view of the kitchen operations. Being in that area was entertaining and we enjoyed the extra care head chef, Phil, provided when personally explaining the details of every dish. The staff was excellent and the food phenomenal. We will be back.
Enjoyed our experience very much. My friend did find her lamb pizza a little over sauced which left the crust a bit soggy otherwise, the food was amazing.
We had great service, exceptional food and would definitely return. Great surroundings as well.
Sat at bar - shared wAtercress salad, Brussels sprouts meatballs and fried chicken with a bottle of Sangiovese - excellent - plus the pot de creme.
Large share plates great service and good
Would go again
Arrogance --- Inflexible Gordon Ramsay would never Approvw
Wonderful! Can’t wait to return. Food was a little salty - but not horrible at all.
