Sommelier Jeremiah is a rock star...steered us towards some great wines for the evening. Fantastic experience all around and can't wait to go back.

                                                My partner's hamburger was great. My veggie stew was a bit disappointing. I asked the server what was in it and everything she listed: peas, fava beans, snap peas, and artichoke hearts, were missing (there was a little piece of an artichoke heart). What was in it was obviously remnants from other dishes. The broccoli stems were woody and the few florets, gritty. Some of the almonds were fine and others tasted rancid. The potatoes and carrots were ok, but it certainly wasn't the stew that had been described to me.

                                                Unfortunately we were underwhelmed by the food. We ordered 7 dishes plus drinks. The consensus was that only 2 of the food items were very good, we had expected more from such a highly rated restaurant. The other 5 dishes were smack dab in the middle of the road - not particularly delicious. We conveyed to our waitperson that one of the dishes was extremely salty, however he didn't offer to do anything about it. Sadly we won't return. Sadly the neighborhood's namesake restaurant let us down.

                                                Nopa appears to have lost the magic. I’ve been coming for 8 years and the last visit was a special one, and especially disappointing. We were seated and had no service for 15-20 mins before the host came and did his best to collect a drinks order. The food was just ok - three very good dishes but three were over cooked and one was sent back. Then we couldn’t get service for desert or after dinner drinks. In the end, a long and expensive affair with friends asking me what all the fuss was about.

                                                Great food and cocktails. Service is generally pretty good. They were able to change our reservation to 8 people, but had three people crowd on a bench so it was a bit cramped. Overall great restaurant.

With such a variety of foods and styles and courses, there is something for everyone and the service is very friendly and attentive. Even the simplest dishes were outstanding due to expert preparation, freshness, and beautiful presentation.

                                                The food and service were very good. The positioning and layout of the tables did not contribute to a pleasant ambiance. We couldn't carry on a conversation as the couples directly next to us were so close that we could only hear their conversations (unfortunately). I wish we could unhear some of the awkward things we heard. It was all we could do to eat as quickly as possible to get out of the crowded seating arrangement.

                                                Very good food, however service was slow at the start. It took us 15 minutes to get seated at our table with a reservation. However, I do think it’s worth going for the food and the atmosphere. The wine was impeccable and the food selection was very good. It’s great for groups of friends a couples as it has a buzzing young feel to the place! I would recommend.

                                                Bad experience; we arrived at 8pm , the hour of reservation ; we had to wait 30 min to be seated, and then 75 more minutes to start eating (at 9:40pm). No apology, and no commercial gesture from the waitress for the excessive waiting time. In addition, very expensive given the quality of the food First and last time for this overrated restaurant

                                                This restaurant is as good as ever. Visited for a reunion dinner with old friends and we were seated outside under the heaters. Actually very comfortable. The service was top notch. We asked for wine BTG recommendations to match our mains. I had the pork chop, medium rare. Delicious and still a staple of that menu. Wife had bucatini and mushroom pasta and our guest had the house burger, which he said was outstanding. Thrilled that they have survived the lands of and are firing on all cylinders.

                                                The turnover in staff and perhaps workforce challenges post covid seems to have made a bit of a difference in the quality of service. I hope it continues to improve as time goes on. The timing of dishes and drinks and the wait times are surprising. But the food is as amazing as ever!

                                                Food was expensive and not too tasty. The smoked trout was way too salty. The brisket tasted like ham. The service was solid. Did not live up to the hype.

                                                Nope is one of my absolute favorite restaurants and is my go to for special occasions. Their food is always phenomenal. I will say that I did not have a good experience with the service at my last visit. I had a reservation for 7:45 on a Monday night. The table was not ready, which is no problem. My husband and I were asked to hangout by the bar and that they would come grab us when the table was ready. At 7:55 I walked back to the host table to check in myself and no one had grabbed us. We were seated after I raised this with the host. Food service was also very slow. We did not get our meal until after 9 o'clock. One entree and one side came out. after about 10 minutes I had to remind the server that the other entree had not arrived. About 5 or so minutes passed and the burger that we ordered medium arrived at a very rare temp. I wonder if it got fired when I raised it. We were eager to finish up and get home so we did not send the burger back. This is definitely the exception to the rule of the normally amazing experience I've had with Nopa service.
