    Best steak I've ever tasted and I've enjoyed many. Noe was a fabulous place for our romantic dinner. Quiet, pretty setting. Fabulous, attentive service. Amazingly delicious food served beautifully. We had the Tomato Salad. I had the tenderloin steak and my husband had the lobster pasta. As I mentioned the steak was the best ever. For dessert, an ice cream trio and chocolate mousse, both divine! We will definitely go back.

    We stood at the door for 10 minutes. Someone that looked like a manager with a hotel name tag on even walked right by us and said hello. No one offered to seat us. We had a reservation as well. Left and went into town for dinner.

    The food was ok but the wine list was excellent. Ok prices. The best part of the night was Isaac (our waiter). He was just marvelous. The mandatory tip attached to our bill (party of 6) left me confused if to tip Isaac additionally. My wife insisted the inclusive tip was enough but I felt bad not acknowledging isaac's excellent service. Will go back there if only to get a chance to appreciate Isaac.

    We had a reservation but arrived early, and were seated early. The waiter was very pleasant and accommodating. The menu stated that my wife's salmon dish was served with a cilantro pesto. It did not come with it. The waiter apologized and went to ask the chef. He returned to inform us that the menu was outdated and should not have had the pesto listed on there. However, the chef made some just for her and she loved it! The entire experience was wonderful and the food was amazing.

    Noe Grill offers excellent service by a knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff. Located inside the Omni Hotel, Cafe Noe is convenient for guests and party attendees. The food is presented beautifully, however the seafood dishes are somewhat lacking in spice and flavor. If you enjoy creative dishes without much of a "kick," Noe Grill is perfect for you.

  • Almost Perfect
    BiklesVIP
    Dined on 2/11/2014
    Most of our meal was outstanding - fresh and delicious and cooked to perfection. We highly recommend the pork tacos, fried oysters, the root vegetables, and the burger , which was so tasty that you did not have to add any condiments. We were disappointed by the 1) heirloom tomato and avocado salad - avocados were fresh but the tomatoes were mealy, and 2) the mochi dessert, made from soft pounded sticky rice on the outside and ice cream in the middle. Even though the dessert is frozen, the outside remains soft and chewy, but ours did not; it had freezer burn. The food would have scored an outstanding if not for these two disappointing items. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. I would definitely go back though.

    My wife and I stayed at the OMNI for a night and heard about the NOE,Its a nice restaurant, great food but the wait time was too long considering there were only our table with two and another with four,THATS IT! I can only recommend this place if you are in that area and celebrating a special occasion.

    We went for NYE and had their 5 course tasting menu with champagne pairing. The food was excellent and the champagne pairing with each course was interesting. Service was great. And the most delightful part was that it was quiet and we could all hear each other. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend it for an intimate dinner with friends.

    We were looking for a quiet place that also accommodates various dietary restrictions. This was the perfect place. They clearly mark whether a dish is gluten and/or dairy free and if a dish is not marked they can prepare it to specification. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. It was also quiet which we like because it made it easy to carry out a conversation. I highly recommend this place.

  • Houston Food Weeks
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/2/2013
    Had dinner there on a Friday night during restaurant weeks. The place was understaffed or unexpectedly busy, high marks for the hostess that realized my wife and I were waiting a while and decided to be our waitress for the evening... Overall, decent wine list, I had the glazed salmon which was nothing to complain about, the cheese polenta was decadent. My wife had the sausage pasta, it must have been good because I didn't get a taste. The portion was small but enough, rather refreshing considering portion sizes we are used to around town. The tomato salad was great, I am a self professed avocado nut, the grilled wedges on the salad gave a great smoky creamy taste and texture.

    The place looked great and the wait staff was very polite. The food however, was subpar, especially for the price. The lobster carbonara had three small pieces of lobster which were very chewy and over cooked. And the carbonara and was very spicy???? Why was lobster carbonara spicy? I didn't eat 1/3rd of the dish as it was only egg noodles.!?!?!?! The swordfish was dry. My wife didn't eat half of hers. The scallops were great, though. We paid $140 for a meal that shouldn't have cost more than $80. Wait staff was polite, but very slow.

    while we almost had the resturant to ourselfs I asked the chef to make me his most special dish scince we were the only ones there at the time and he only told me that the fish of the moment dish is one of his specialties and could not come up with another dish, the main dishes came out and when I tried the Resotto it did not tast or look like the same as I have gotten use to, but over all I guess the food and place was alright, but wait as I was checking my bank account I noticed that I was charged more for the bill than I had Authorized, my total bill was $159.90 and I gave the waiter a $25.10 tip which I through that it was fair for the service that we received which should have came out to a total of $185.00 but they charge me $191.88.

    The food was very disappointing...a sirloin steak served was served in a puddle of grease with burned veggies and the Salmon was not much better. Greasy and poor quality. The service was friendly is about all I could say about this once favorite restaurant. We will not be going back. We confirmed in our on line reservation a request for a table flower arrangement to be added to the bill. The request was confirmed but no flowers on the table for our 42nd anniversary.

    I cannot say if I would recommend this restaurant or not. We were greeted by a busboy who sat us. I don't know where the maitre'd was or the waiters were. We sat for a while before anyone came to take our drink order. Then another waiter came up and tried again to take our order. There seemed to be confusion all around. Also there was a very loud lady sitting in the corner. She was so loud that finally, the waiters asked her to calm it down a bit. The food was very good. I have no complaints there.
