Diner Reviews
  • "We have dined at noca for quite a few years and it has seen many changes. This was our first experience with the current chef. The food is very good, interesting, carefully thought out and presented well. We sat at the bar by choice as I find the view of Safeway not that appealing. I wonder if just positioning the tables to view the interior of restaurant would offer a nicer experience. Sara, our bartender and server gave good suggestions on wine and described the food thoroughly. I do think she uses the phrase 'my friends' to the point of annoyance. Perhaps she was just trying too hard as it seemed staged. The staff (all new faces) is still trying to work together smoothly as our plates sat for a while and were cleared at different times. "

  • "We visited NOCA for the 1st time last weekend and had a wonderful experience! The staff was very welcoming and our server knowledgeable. She made some great wine recommendations that we loved. Special requests were accepted and met and we felt like we were were treated with the utmost professionalism, We will definitely be going back!"

  • "I often stop by noca for a sandwich at lunch (the Cisco Kid is my favorite) but had never dined with them for dinner. We came during their monthly Fried Chicken Sunday Supper and enjoyed the best fried chicken I've probably ever had, an amazingly tender maple butter biscuit, whipped potatoes, and braised greens. Our waitress (Sarah? maybe) was AMAZING - so friendly and helpful, had no problems explaining menu items to us and even adjusted my cocktail for me when she noticed I wasn't drinking it and worried it may not be to my liking. At $35 for a 3-course meal, you can't beat the price for the quality of food and service. We will definitely come back."

  • "Noca is a terrific restaurant with an always changing interesting menu. They do wonderful little touches like a amuse as well as complementary desserts which make dinning here a great experience. Highly recommend, the squid ink pasta dish and the sauce it comes with is absolutely fantastic!"

  • "Noca was one of our favorite places for dinner before they closed for renovation. It is certainly not up to the old standards. The service was terrible. We made a reservation for 4 and when the 2 of us checked in we were seated at a 2 top before we objected. The other 2 settings were cleared while we talked. Still water was poured into our sparkling water so many times we gave up. Our drinks took forever to arrive and when we inquired the server said they were at the bar, then went to the hostess to chat + the chef to chat. The $16 pastrami was served cold on bland bread. There are glimmers of hope. The soup was awesome as were the hot donuts with chocolate sauce. One more try before we give up and write Noca off as a memory."

  • "Noca was one of our favorites before they discontinued their dinner service last year and this was our first visit since they reopened. The remodeled room seems larger and has better sight lines. The service was outstanding as has been our experience. There is a good selection of vegetarian dishes on the menu and the Panzanella salad was outstanding, large enough to be an entre. The Panisse Cake was excellent as well. The Diver Scallops were tasty and perfectly cooked, although overpriced at $11 a piece. This dish was described as including pork belly but I couldn't find any in mine. The prosciutto wrapped pork chopped sounded like a great concept, but I found it too salty and a little fatty. Overall, I expect improvement when we return."

  • "Service is key to my experience, they did it great. We had this raviolo to start, delicious... I had the skate wing (delicious and hard to find anywhere!), my friend had squid ink pasta, wow! Menu had that days date on it. Absolutely be back."

  • "The menu is interesting and the presentations are very pretty. The dishes I ordered were just as I had expected them to be and delicious. There are little tasty surprises throughout the meal. I think the tables are a bit close but I have trouble hearing so this might not be a problem for others."

  • "First time to NOCA in a couple of years. Cauliflower soup was outstanding. Pasta was excellent as well though portion was a bit on the small side. Server was unfamiliar with some of the wines but quickly summoned the sommelier and the choice was excellent; we and the server had a friendly agreement we were all on the learning curve. Definitely would return and recommend highly to others."

  • "Shocked to learn the executive chef is 22 years old...all was perfect...again. The last time was also perfect, before youth took over. Service here is friendly, experienced and thoughtful. Menu items vary, but all quite creative. What a wonderful dining experience!!"

  • "I can only describe our meal at Noca's as a "gem". The waitress was super friendly and helpful in a most efficient, but not annoying way. My date and I split a wonderful salad and followed up with a shared dish of squid ink pasta infused with seafood after asking the waitress is the portion size would be sufficient to satisfy. It was not only sufficient, it was perfect."

  • "Went here on their second day open following redecoration. Place looks great, and the new menu is outstanding! Timing was off but that's to be expected after a re-opening. The Hamachi crudo might be the best appetizer in the Valley, and the ribeye, scallops, and pasta with pork sausage are also not to be missed. Do not miss this place!"

  • "We booked our reservation before realizing that it was grand re-opening night, a good surprise. Not sure what the restaurant looked like pre-remodel, but the new decor is simple, warm and comfortable. The Valentine's prix fixe menu was explained by our server to be a preview of the permanent dinner menu. Options included a deliciously velvety wild mushroom soup, squid ink pasta, prime rib, and salted caramel budino. Each dish was well prepared and plated to appeal to the eye. Our server was very good, but should have checked back on our table more frequently to ensure drinks were replaced when empty. We will go back to check out the full menu."

  • "Been looking forward to eating here for years, didn't know that a tasting menu was the only option for valentines, options were few and not what we were hoping for. Additionally, a significant amount a time passed before a server greeted us. Music was too loud. Staff seemed unorganized. Will attempt another time when it's not a special occasion."
