Be warned - dinner for 2 - $600 with one drink and food was average - I have no problem splurging on dinner every once in a while and spending $600 for 2 but I want to remember the meal and taste for at least a few days. Inn at Washington and French Laundry are 2 places that I can think of that are as expensive but at least worth it - Nellos is not - and that's the point - if you are Russian euro trash its for you.

Pros: Russian girls (pole dancers) on the dance floor paid by Nello to "entertain"

Cons: Russian girls (pole dancers) on the dance floor paid by Nello to "entertain"

Pros: None!

Cons: Food, Staff, Value! There's nothing good to write about this place.

Where does one begin? With the interminable wait for a table booked a week in advance? the chaotic service? the sub-standard food? The Euro-trash wannabe crowd? (Do people actually aspire to be Eurotrash?).... Nellos is one those Madison Avenue institutions that have lasted for years on a mysterious combination of location, charm and a ladies who lunch scene (Euros again). Its summer outpost in Southampton is a pleasant space, especially outdoors. Inside is also nice but it hasnt decided what it wants to be. Is it a restaurant, a lounge, a club? It wants to be all things to all people and ends up being really bad at everything. Its so much of a scene that people refuse to leave their tables after their dinners to make way for newly arrived customers. So the crowds pile on top of each other, the staff are harassed and abused, the food takes forever to show up and all along Nello and his latest piece of arm candy sit at their table oblivious to the zoo around them.. Once seated inside although we had booked an outside table the fun began. It was almost surreal: Our waiter appeared with a few napkins and no silverware. We had to wait 20 minutes for glasses and for him to take our wine order. Then I grabbed him and refused to let him go back to the kitchen without taking our dinner order. The table next to ours claimed that theyd been waiting 3 HOURS for their food. They couldve driven into NYC for dinner instead! When our food finally arrived, it was not worth the wait. My artichoke salad was OK, but my pasta with clams was dull and watery. Everyone else said their food was substandard. Overcrowded, understaffed with a tacky crowd to boot. The next day on the way to Schmidts Market we passed by it and rolled down our windows to boo and hiss! We were still traumatized. A friend called it PNTSD Post Nellos Traumatic Stress Disorder!
