Our server was Carola. She is one of the best....there are other great servers there too. She is very attentive but not overbearing to the table needs. We enjoy having her serve us. The food was outstanding! Compliments to the chefs!

Service was wonderful and entrees were terrific. Chocolate souffle was dry - not bad - just dry.

The hostess and a couple of other workers there were rude and unprofessional. Our waiter was very good and pleasant. The food was good, depending on who you asked in my party. Overall, there was too much salt in all of the meals. I would try it again but wouldn't rush to get there.

Superb food at a very reasonable price. Loved the atmosphere, I had the steak frites and my friend had the scallops with risotto, plus we split the crab cake appetizer. Everything was perfect. Cant wait to go back!

I've been to NOCA twice recently. I had fish both times & I was very impressed with the quality & presentation. The bartenders are courteous & professional as well. I highly recommend this place.

My family and I went on NYE for dinner at 7:30. And honestly the food was disgusting. The calamari appetizer was like soft and not crispy fried how it should be. And the short rib flat bread was so so. And my dad and a friend got the crab cakes as an entree and said they were absolutely terrible and they couldn’t even eat them. Our waitress was nice but didn’t even bother to ask if we liked our meal. I had Salmon Oscar and the salmon was raw but they wouldn’t know my preference on how I like salmon cooked because she didn’t ask.... will not be going back here

Went to NOCA to celebrate a birthday with friends. The only disappointing part of our visit was that our table wasn’t ready for 30 minutes after our scheduled reservation. However, the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and make up for the inconvenience. The variety and quality of food was outstanding, service was excellent. Noise level allowed for good conversation. NOCA is a favorite.

Our family of 5 all enjoyed our delicious dinners. My family consist of 3 carnivores, a Vegetarian and a myself a Pescatarian. My Scallops with vegetarian Risotto was so savory and absolutely perfect.
My husbands porkchop was the biggest chop I’ve ever seen and he reports it was awesome. All the foodies and picky eaters cleaned their plates. We had a blast, we could hear the dinner conversations easily, drinks were pouring and so good. The bar staff and our table server were all so nice and engaging!
Good foods, drinks and experiences! Thank you NOCA and Opentable too for the ease of finding an available last minute dinner spot.

We tried this restaurant for the first time last week and although it was fine, we ended up spending about $150 for a few glasses of wine and entrées, which neither of us were particularly impressed by. Although not terrible, we will not return.

My husband and another couple had dinner the other night. It was our first visit and we were all very pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. Our waiter, Ben was awesome! He gave us his top recommendations, and he did not steer us wrong! He had the best personality. I ordered the pistachio encrusted grouper which melted in my mouth... it was so delicious. My friend ordered the Killer Pan Chicken dish which she said was terrific!
Overall, we had an enjoyable experience. Would like to come back in warmer weather to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor patio!

Family came to town and I wanted to try a new place. Items on the menu looked great so we gave it a shot. Glad we did. I had the lamb pops and the the chopped Greek Salad. Awesome. We had six people. The bill was $342.00 (incl. grat.) for wine, appetizers and deserts. Worth it!

when we arrived, place was about half full, as it filled the noise level was really high. Food was good, portions were big, drinks not so great. Service was about average, little trouble getting servers attention for drink refills. Party if four, three good meals, one so so. Overall, we would go again during the week when it is not so crowded and noisy

First I would say our server Marcus was amazing. He had to work under extreme conditions but because of him the restaurant got a few stars on my review. He made our night. He knew his stuff and was personable. The food also was really good. The menu is wide enough is satisfy everyone at the table, and it came out very quickly.

Now to the bad, the general manager, which quite frankly I am not sure why they are paying him. We never saw him in the dining room at all. I say this because we saw a “booty dance” by a girl and very inappropriate exchange a few inches from our table from a couple making out from 20 or so guests spilling out from a room that maybe fit for 8-10 people. It was next to our table that had no door to close it off . They were so loud and sang songs. It was so bad that the other 5 tables of patrons of 4 guests couldn’t hear conversations . When I couldn’t hear our friends across the table, I went and found the GM hiding in the bar area alone ( yes I had to ask who was in charge) he said he tried to get them to sit in the bar area but they refused. He also said that that many people in that small room was a “fire code violation “ ( his words not mine) but what could he do? I suggested he “manage” the situation. He never once came into the dining room after that and Never even apologized to the other guests in there. He didn’t ask how our food was. When we were leaving , he was hiding out back, but someone else in our group approached him and commented that he did nothing to help the situation for anyone. He replied that he was in a no win situation so he decided to do nothing. Again I ask.... why is he being paid???
