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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
