This was my third visit in 3 months. Highly recommend! The service is amazing - friendly, authentic staff who seem genuinely interested in your enjoyment of the food. Some of the courses were served by the Head Chef and you can tell by the way he spoke that there's pure love in the food. The pizza was a definite highlight - we had the special Cacio e Pepe pizza last time and the one with smoked prosciutto, gorgonzola, walnut, watercress, and five year balsamic the time before that. Both excellent, perfectly balanced and full of flavour. These are not heavy pizzas - they have a thin, delicious crust. I've had the buttermilk chicken and the apple salad on two visits. It's one of those places where you have a hard time choosing between something you know is absolutely delicious versus trying something new.

Exceeded expectations. We are tourists from New England and found a special experience at this restaurant. We are in our very early 70s and loved the youthful vibe with a healthy dose of respectfulness. Love the idea of eating as little or as much as we wanted. Quality of food, flavors, selection and service were A-1. Clayton, our server, was perfect. Of course, you had me at “A Night In Willoughby.”

The food could not have been better. We came here with a group and everything was amazing.

Only complaint is that we told the waiter to order for us but don’t get anything with tree nuts. So of course he brings out the pro belly —- with nuts. Sigh.

And then the bill initially charged us for 16 people. And we lost our waiter halfway through the meal.

But don’t let that stop you. The food is well worth any issues the front of the house creates.

We had a wonderful experience at David Hawksworth's Nightingale. The food Chef Phil prepared for us was very special and well crafted. The maitre d' was amazing. Chef Phil was outstanding. We personally appreciated that he checked on us and shared a few words about his food.

We'll be back and not soon enough.

Looking forward to more strange rich foods to warm these bone chilling north western winter dinners from this kitchen.

We often give stars too easily. Nightengale is almost worth an extra star, but just falls short a tiny little bit. Service great but a little slow. Food is superb but a little pricey. Ambiance is large but a little cold. Very close to being a great restaurant, but not quite there. Would definitely still recommend.

Overall it was a nice dinner - i would saw for whatever reason the over all experience was better the week before. Service was a little up and down but overall good. Had put in for preference for a nice table but ended up in the middle of the floor which was ok but not exceptional for a special event.

May go back again - but will be more active with my special requests.

The mushroom pizza was disappointing, not crisp and sub-standard, although the fried chicken and meat balls were good. The service was excellent.

I would hesitate to recommend Nightingale to my friends as far as food excellence is concerned.
