    It took over 20 minutes to be seated and over 10 minutes to have our order taken. The burger was juicy, but the exterior was tough. The burger needed more time to rest.

    To start I had a wonderful martini and a pretty tasty salad that came with an outstanding creamy something (maybe the basil creme fraiche?). Then there was a very long wait before our entrees arrived. My sister had the House Smoked Brisket and it was kinda dry and hard- and not tasty. She sent it back for a burger right away and they were very kind about it. My Pappardelle, Nine Hour Bolognese and Summer Squash was just boring, but not bad enough to return. I just picked at it and my sister said she'd split her burger with me when it arrived. One of the wait staff saw that I'd only taken a couple tiny bites of the pasta and took it off the bill without me even asking, which was very nice of them. It was a passable burger, much better than our original entrees, but nothing specific. The service was wonderful and the place had great ambiance and a fun, hip feeling. I might try it again if someone invites me. Maybe it was just a bad night? But it was a pretty big let down after all the recommendations, so I wouldn't invite someone again myself!

    The menu had virtually no seafood which was tricky for us. They offered a trout appetizer which we ordered but the portion of the trout was tiny and it was sitting in yogurt which also did not work for us. The Caesar salad was good, the corn salad was tasteless. We waited a ridiculously long time for the single entree of pasta that we shared. It was a pappardelle pasta with bolognese sauce. We waited 40 minutes and the pasta was lousy. Neither of us finished it after waiting a very long time for it to arrive. The servers did not apologize even though we asked about the pasta three different times. The ambiance of the restaurant had a nice vibe, but we were disappointed at the food and service. The prices are also very high. The dish of corn with a few berries in it was nearly $20.00. I don't see returning- it's a very overrated place.

    I was excited to find here as it had been a while. The ambiance is great as always. As well as the service. But the food was totally disappointing. We had the halibut cheek appetizer.. it just tasted like dry salt. Bread was good though. I had the duck for my main. I sent it back because it was super salty. When I received the new one again it was just super salty. Everything on the plate was over salted. The cookie for dessert was good. Cocktail before dinner was good.

    Our server was excellent. For some reason the food took forever. Everyone around us, even seated after us had their food, finished eating and we still hadn’t gotten ours. The poor server seemed uncomfortable telling us our food was on its way. We were outside so we really didn’t get to feel the ambiance of the restaurant. Overall the food was delicious

    I’m sorry about the bad rating but I was not impressed by Nopa. I don’t know it that’s just being spoiled by good food in Houston but unfortunately this place did not live up to the hype. Nothing tasted original and the fried chicken breading had no flavor, was dry and was actually difficult to finish. Perhaps just this menu wasn’t good. Maybe it changes and gets better because a lot of people insisted it was good.

    We visited NOPA for our Anniversary and had a great time! The staff was super friendly and made us feel really cared for. At the end of our meal, the kitchen gifted us with a little scoop of ice cream and some cookies for the road as a little anniversary gift. So thoughtful, and truly a memorable gesture!

    The appetizers were great and generous. The smoked trout was exceptional. The pork chop was perfectly cooked but needed a more generous portion of vegetables along with it. The peach cobbler/crisp was a real disappointment: peaches were indiscernible and the presentation flat, literally and figuratively. Alex was a fantastic server.

    Have heard about this restaurant for years and this was my first chance to finally experience. Lived up to the reputation and did not disappoint! House Cocktail selection was varied and fresh. For Bourbon fans, I had the Disco Rodeo and it was both refreshing and delightfully intriguing. Our table also enjoyed the Boardwalk Romance, if you are a gin drinker; or want to start. :-). The Pisco Punch did not quite meet expectations. Apps were delightful. Amazing takes on some traditional standbys. The smoked tomato Caesar salad was delicious with just the right hint of smoke to make it a unique take. And, the Earl Gray Tomato Bruschetta, with the perfect amount of aged balsamic and just a hint of mint, served on a hearty farm bread, was to die for. Mains were also on point. The house made Pappardelle with Bolognese was cooked perfectly Al dente and the sauce was classic; rich and hearty and so yummy. Our table also had the Wood Roasted vegetable stew which was a unique interpretation of the traditional, including surprises such as almonds, green olives and chickpeas finished with a Meyer lemon yogurt. I know, but, it all comes together in an interesting and enjoyable way including even a slight hint of heat in the finish which went well the the lemon yogurt. Wine by the glass selection was a little off main stream and we didn’t love our choices. Desserts though were a fantastic finish. The Malted milk chocolate ice cream paired nicely with the salted chocolate chip cookies, which came still warm, and a perfectly made cappuccino. An excellent finish to a thoroughly delightful meal.

    Nopa is an SF classic, and you could easily go all the time since the menu changes frequently. First time in the parklet, and it was perfect! Must start with cocktails and fries and work your way out from there... Summer produce is the best and they did a great job of highlighting it. Sharing is a real move to try more things.

    Fried anchovies, warm goat cheese as appetizers and the pork chop and wood roasted vegetables as the main courses was the perfect mix of dishes. Everything was delicious and the service outstanding. It's wonderful to see a long standing restaurant get back to its pre-pandemic self. Kudos to owners and staff for being a restaurant I can recommend to others.
