A word from Noble's Grille
The elegant open design of Noble's Grille was inspired by the restaurants of Napa Valley, where Chef Noble was first inspired to follow his dream and become a gourmet. A delicious French-Mediterranean menu features clean, light cuisine carefully cooked over a wood-fired oven, grill and rotisserie to bring out its natural flavors. That way, you can savor the taste of the food, no overly heavy sauces and crusts.

    We were disappointed by our recent visit to Nobles. While our server was knowledgeable, he hardly ever came around and we had to keep asking for someone to find him. On top of that 2 of our 4 main courses were either prepared incorrectly or were plain bad. Lamb was really tough to chew and it was almost and appetizer portion anyway. Not worth the $28.

    We always enjoy Noble's when in town on business, and this time was no exception. On this occasion our table was right next to the open kitchen so it was pretty noisy, but to be fair they accommodated both a time change (earlier) and change in group size (larger) on very short notice (thank you!). They have some very nice wines which are not on the wine list and won't break the bank (consider asking for the Meiomi pinot noir), and our server was quite helpful on that count. Several folks had the crab cakes and loved them. It is worth noting that their basis for comparison is the Chesapeake Bay environment (Baltimore, Newport News/Norfolk, and the DelMarVa Peninsula), so that is high praise indeed. My filet mignon arrived medium well instead of rare (!), but that was quickly corrected under the server's watchful eye and it turned out to be delicious. For dessert, the creme brulee was a real hit. My caramel cake was on the dry side, but the butter pecan ice cream and scattered pecans were very good (and might have made up for the cake if there had been less cake and more ice cream). We'll be back!

    We go to Noble's for a night out with friends and for special occasions. The food is consistently good. For starters, the tomato bisque is the best in town! One of us had the filet which was excellent. The other had flounder which tasted very fresh and the preparation was exceptional. It is also nice that you can order the side dishes which at least two can share and there is a good selection to choose from. Last, but not least, Noble's offers a good variety of desserts and we have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is upbeat and the servers are always friendly and attentive. Noble's is one of our favorite Winston-Salem restaurants.

    Everything was perfect. The food and service were excellent. It was a busy parents weekend at wake and the place was very crowded, but they managed everything well. We arrived and were seated immediately. I even called half hour before to add to our res and they were able to accommodate our request. I will recommend to friends, and will definitely go again.

    I've eaten at Noble's for years and moved away from WS a few years ago. I was excited to be back and eat there for dinner, and left completely disappointed. First, the menu has changed and completely lost its unique sensibility. They brought a beautifully wrapped presentation of bread before dinner, and it was ice-cold. We asked for warm bread; which didn't arrive until after our dinner. The food came quickly, but other than that the service was just terrible. They need to do some serious training with their staff. Our waitress was extremely unprofessional, didn't know how to properly place or remove plates, and acted more like she was working at Applebee's than Nobles. It did not at all feel like a fine dining experience.

    Great place. Excellent menu selections with service to match. Server very knowledgeable regarding any of our parties questions with perfect recommendations based on our dining preferences and palate. Dessert was the only disappoint for one of the two of us. Slightly pricey but you get what you pay for. No question would make a return visit.

    Very disappointing experience. It has been two years since our last visit and the difference is shocking. Food was uneven, with some excellent dishes but other poor ones. Desserts disappointing. Service deplorable. Some dishes, such as roasted half-chicken were stingy. Restaurant needs a refresh. To top it off, we both had upset stomachs and bowel trouble the next morning! Jazz music was excellent, but the space is so noisy with hard surfaces that even though we were a couple of tables away from the band we could barely hear the music.

    I was underwhelmed by my meal here and wouldn't normally take the time to comment but the food seemed overpriced for what it was. The dishes I had were classic American dishes that tasted just plain and I expect restaurants of this caliber to be using ingredients and flavors that really set their version of a classic aside from what I can cook myself at home. It was not a bad experience just mediocre and with that in consideration, overpriced.

    we have always enjoyed Noble's. but have not been there in a couple of years; decor lacking; no live flowers: all fake. bar area looks tacky with the stand up toughs. service acceptable, tables along banquette too close. salad lackluster. not sure about the heirloom tomato: ? whole foods or harris teeter ? but entrees were exceptional. excellent food will return, but overall sad to see such an exceptional restaurant decline.

Even though we tend to stay for 2 hours or more, they staff is always patient, very accommodating and is never in a rush to run us off.

    when you continually drive from Greensboro to Winston Salem for a night out to dinner there must be something about the restaurant. The dining room is beautiful, the bar inviting and fun. Its tough to have a favorite on the menu because all the dishes have that very unique taste and presentation. The staff is best in class. Take a road trip…its worth it.

    I just love how Chef Bobby creates interesting and tasty dishes based on fresh, local ingredients. We had a wonderful roast cauliflower as an app along with zucchini fries - delicious. For vegetarians, the vegetable selection is numerous and all perfectly prepared to get the most natural flavor out of the vegetable. And the salmon - yummy. It was our daughter's birthday and the staff made her and her friends feel very welcome and special. Thanks to everyone at Noble's for another wonderful dining experience.

    Food was very good and service was very good. The BBQ was surprisingly good, as this is certainly not a BBQ shop. The blueberry trifle for dessert was very tasty but not too heavy, which is always a concern regarding dessert. The vegetable platter was very good, except that the asparagus was stringy because not enough stalk was removed

    There are few experiences in dining I rate a 5. It has to be something extra mile special to get my attention. Nobles did that for me. From a properly created Old Fashioned cocktail to a very good wine selection their drink menu is superb. The food is created from ingredients you don't expect like the Mock Turtle Soup made from oxtail, kidney, heart, radish and scallops. Sounds weird but delicious. The short ribs were nothing short of awesome. Fork tender and accompanied by a mushroom based vegetable medley and sweet potato puree that fit perfect as a well worn glove. The server said they specialize in foods no one else would ordinarily think to use. This place makes awesomeness from the unusual! Highly recommended.

    Tryagain
    Dined on 6/23/2014
    We dined at Noble's in Winston-Salem in celebration of our 15th anniversary as we have done every year for 15 years. The experience has always been exceptional. This year however the food was a huge disappointment. Becky ordered the filet mignon which was marbled with sinew to a point that even the steak-knife had trouble. I've never seen a tough filet. My tilefish was seasoned nicely but cooked completely dry. I brought this to the waitresses' attention but only for the chef's benefit (if he/she wanted it). Tilefish can overcook easily if you're not paying attention. Still a great restaurant which we greatly enjoy; just that we both experiences much less than their normal quality on this evening.

    A fantastic evening and truly fantastic food is the best way to describe Noble's Grille. From brilliant service, an exhaustive and well composed wine list, and finally the exquisite cuisine, it is truly a wonderful place in which to dine. Each of us sampled different fare, and found each salad, soup, and entree to be freshly prepared, beautifully presented, and delicious. If you're passing through Winston Salem and are desirous of a fine lunch or dinner, it is truly a wonderful place to stop. While it is a bit of a drive for us, should we find ourselves anywhere near Greensboro or Winston-Salem, we make it a point to dine at Noble's. Truly an outstanding restaurant and a memorable dining experience.
