“Great wines, great location”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

I was here on a Wednesday night and while there were very few people in the lounge, I was there with a small group and we had a great time. They have a fantastic selection of wines and the service staff is great at providing tastings to see if you like the wine or not and honestly, their knowledge was spot on since each time we had a tasting, we ordered the wine we tasted.

The location is superb, right in the Marina District, and we had a good time before heading off for dinner.

I recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice friendly place to have a glass or two.

“Cool Place”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Stopped in for a drink. The place was pretty crowded, but we found some seats. We tried a few flights and they were Ok. Hoping the wine is better in Sonoma (our destination), but enjoyed San Fran for a night. Beautiful city with lots of places like this to hang out.

“Prefer Bin 38”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

We went here last Friday before a concert, never having been here before. We had small plates and wine by the glass. The menu is limited. The cheese plate was good. The wine was okay, certainly not of the level of Bin 38, which has fantastic wines by the glass, as well as a more extensive menu. Happy hour from 5:00-7:00 p.m. took some sting out of the bill. Service was okay, not great. We had to flag the server a few times, despite the place not being packed.

“Flights on demand!”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 via mobile

The staff and selection at Nectar are just to die for. The wine flights are the best of any wine bar we have visited on our trip. The owner/sommelier created custom flights for us once we had tried the ones on the menu. We took the Mac and cheese with truffle oil back to the hotel with us and it was the perfect nightcap. I highly recommend!

“Wine tasting and small plates”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Love the wine flights, staff is great, and from the truffle oil popcorn to the bacon wrapped dates - all small plates are great - and fun to share and try. The menu suggests wine parings for each plate, and it's a fun, and relaxed atmosphere.
