I have eaten here at least 8 times for their regular prefix dinner (4 courses) and holiday buffett . I've had the suckling pig, rack of lamb,cod, tuna,ribeye steak and the sauteed chicken with artichoke hearts. Everything is fresh and cooked to order.The staff is great ....friendly and professional. Best of all it's a great value $35 for a 4 course prefix, and you can bring your own wine (they don't have a liquor license). I worked as a chef for 25 years and when me and my girlfriend want a great meal we go here !

Nataz in Branford is a gem. A dining experience that feels personal, like eating at a chefs table only better. The staff are freindly, funny and work seamlessly together to give the best possible service. The prix fixe menu with four courses provides lots of food (more than I can eat), at a reasonable price. The reason you MUST TRY this restaurant is quality of the food and the flavors. From homemade bread that was moist and crusty, nice choices for cheese platter to the nice touch of fried string onion on the salad we were very happy. When the entrees arrived (BTW, not only do you have a choice of an impressive menu-the numerous special entrees will blow you away) they are visually enticing and the flavors are spot on. We tried a dry aged New York strip steak with homemade peppercorn sauce that was tender, full of flavor and perfectly cooked and a Branzino fish that was moist, had lovely accompaniments and was delicious. While we were so full at this point, both of us could not resist dessert, we chose a limoncello cake that was light and fresh and a tiramisu that was perfect. It has been a long time since a restaurant "wowed" us and Nataz did just that. It is BYOB, and we liked that because we can bring our favorite wines and don't have to pay for the high restaurant mark up. They have a second location in Southington that is very small and plan a new location in Clinton coming this year. We applaud their dedication to service and great food.

Prix fixe menu is excellent - a rarity where you have A LOT of entree choices.
All food was outstanding. Dining room decor is really beautiful. Service was outstanding.
Only issue is the noise level, which was loud. Sat in the main dining room, and it was so loud you had to shout to converse.

We have been following Rick for years with his various restaurants from small time in North Branford to big time on Branford hill (big mistake) We remember
him in his small restaurant in North Branford with his flea market furniture and him coming out with a bottle of Sambuca and sitting with us and telling us his story. Things change but unfortunately not for the best. Dinner tonite was just so Ok. My lobster/crab dinner had 2 pieces of lobster claw some knuckles and minuscule crab. All 4 of us were so unimpressed with everything. We actually dined at the Southington place a month ago and it was much better. Rick go back to your roots!! I know this place is a goldmine but I miss u and your zest for good fresh food in s casual relaxed atmosphere
