Friday night I had the pleasure of attending an awards ceremony at Nataz. Though I have heard of this restaurant I had never been. It's tucked away in a non descript plaza in North Branford CT. The surprises begin when you enter the restaurant-simply decorated and classy! A great date destination! Then came the hors d'ouevres. A variety of tasty... More

We've been going to Nataz for many years following them to different locations. The staff are very friendly the food is good most times, however the main reason we go is for the atmosphere and the fact that it's byob which saves a few bucks.

We went to Nataz for the first time in about twenty years...what a great place to eat. The food was wonderful and the service was on point. I had the steak pizziola and my husband had some sort of whole fish...we both left with full bellies and dinner for the next day...thank you...we will be back!!

Best fresh seafood in CT. I live on the shoreline in CT and believe it or not, it is nearly impossible to find fresh, delicious seafood dishes that are not the usual fried fare. Nataz does it perfectly. Went for a 'special' birthday. We were a party of 10 and had a mix of seafood and meat dishes. Each was... More

We were approached by TWO different servers. This may have contributed to the fact that the daily "Specials" were NOT mentioned to us! I over heard another server read a series of "Specials" and wished we had the same opportunity. Our daughter had a hard time selecting an entree and maybe one of the Specials could have worked for her.... More

We and Nataz have co-existed in North Branford for many years but had not gotten together until about 3 weeks ago. We knew it was BYOB and brought a bottle of Prosecco for an aperitif. They serve a prix fixe meal with a wide choice of options including excellent vegetarian dishes. Desserts are also excellent and decadent. Our meal was... More

We decided to celebrate a milestone birthday at this great restaurant. I have to say this was the best venue we could have chosen. They set us up in a separate room upstairs with ample seating for our 30 friends and family. We started with a family style appetizer for all, followed by each individual choice of entree, salad, and... More

A group of nine people went here. We had a great Prix Fixe meal! Service was great and the food outstanding! We are making plans to go back and try the family style deal. Can't wait to experience it. You can bring your own bottle too.
