What a gem! Such an intimate spot featuring good service and delicious food. We enjoyed a delicious carbonara pasta dish and also the scallops, both were hot and well prepared. For dessert we enjoyed an in house baked coconut cream pie, and it was worth the splurge. Overall, its a nice place, a bit cramped which doesn't allow for too... More

Lovely peaceful restaurant with good healthy choices at a very reasonable choice. Menu hasn't changed much over 15 years but there are some great yummy pleasers. Lots of homemade goodness.

This restaurant is highly rated on Trip Advisor and with locals. However we were disappointed. One of us had the steak and one the pasta. The food was average at best and yet the restaurant is slightly on the expensive side. As a result we have not been back as we feel there are much better options in the Owen... More

Wine portion was 6 or 9 once. (The night before we had 5 or 8 once ). Desserts were so good. Wonderful place for a... More

My two young friends and I enjoyed an absolutely exquisite meal at Nathaniel's Restaurant. Our server kept our water glasses filled, and even showed us how to fold napkins in the perfect Nathaniel's way. It was a special afternoon for us, and we loved being pampered.

This was the first time my wife and I have had dinner here and we were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and very attentive. The food was excellent with very generous portions. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and relaxing. We will go again and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
