I visit this restaurant quite a few times over the year as i love the decor. Very authentic and real. The food was ok in the past but it has improved quite alot over the past weeks. I love the Tagine and Herria soup. Very authentic and tasty. It's the best. I highly recommend this restaurant but the service is very annoying. Too many waiters hovering around . I think Nomad is by far the best North African food around Manhattan. It has improved alot.

Have been here a number of times. Was impressed by the lamb with prunes twice till I got a watery tastless version. The chicken pastilla continued to be to top notch: today it was not better than ok. The previously multilayered filo pastry was crisp but uni-layered and the chicken filling, while still well spiced ,tended towards the mushy.

Better than any other N. African restaurant I've been to in the city. (Mogador, e.g.) -- food is authentic and beautifully presented, and the setting is lovely. The pastilla is to die for. There is also a romantic little garden in the back.

went to nomad few times. love the african atmosphere. food takes for everrrr! 30mn to serve a soup +cold apetizer! unbelievable! forget about a tajine almost 1h! the service? i never had so many waiters at my table! so so so annoying! if you go there be ready, dont be surprised if you meet all the servers all at once asking you the same questions over and over! great selection of wine, prices affordable, like most restaurants on 2av.will give it a rest for a while. don't go there if you are starving and want to eat right away. cheers!

I was taken here for my birthday. The food was delicious and the presentation was awesome..The decor was just what I was hoping for as I plan to go to Morocco in October. Everyone helpful and friendly. You must see the bathroom, it is absolutely beautiful, gorgeous red tiles. Will go back again

I really enjoyed the pastilla and the wine list is reasonably priced and interesting (Algerian stuff) but...the poritions are small and the food is just okay. I should have been fair and tried a tangine but I was under the impression that my girlfriend didn't like lamb which I have now been set straight on, anway not bad not great. Would really like to check out the garden but probably won't return

I live around the block from Nomad, and it's the best French/Moraccan restaurant for the price I've been too, here or in London or Paris. The food is authentic, fresh and well prepared, I especially love the small plates and appetizers. And the wine list is surprising good value. And the service is very friendly and welcoming. My only complaint is that sometimes the music is too loud. I love Middle Eastern music but it's a small place and sometimes the music gets in the way of conversation. But otherwise it's a great addition to the neighborhood.
