nectar wine lounge is a stylish wine lounge with locations in Burlingame and San Francisco’s Marina district. They serve many different types of wine including many tastes and several flights. They also serve a full menu of food with a focus on local, sustainable, organic product. They have daily specials. We visited the one in Burlingame which is located just off the main Burlingame avenue shopping mecca.

Picks:

nectar wine lounge monkfish

Monkfish ($14) wrapped around a bone, served with wild rice with toasted almonds sounded weird but was delicious and cooked very well. A small bone was in the middle of the juicy fish.

nectar wine lounge wines

Nice tastes of Storrs Chardonney ($6) and Gruet Sparkling wine ($5).

nectar wine lounge amuse bouche

nectar wine lounge lobster bisque

They were kind enough to serve us a delicious amuse bouche and lobster bisque, probably because they saw us taking pictures.

OK:

nectar wine lounge pizza

Pizza ($15) hand-tossed dough topped with sun-dried tomatoes, rosemary cured ham, and olives had good crust on the edge, but was a little too soft otherwise. The ingredients on top were top notch and delicious.

nectar wine lounge had average service. It seemed like the friendly server had too many tables to service us regularly. The food was surprising decent for a place that focuses on drinking wine.
This is a good place to visit if you are into wine and is a nice stylish place to stay for dinner.

    Had dinner when they first opened. Very small dining area. We were seated in a passage way. The place had a terrible smell, most likely from the cheap construction materials used. Small portions at a high cost. Service was nothing special. Wine was nothing special. Food, what little you get, was nothing special. This is a place for people who THINK they are cool by being here. If you actually care about dining, then you should avoid this place. Srry for any typos:)
