Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and ambiance! My co-workers and I came here for lunch. We all ordered different dishes. The sandwiches and pasta were the favorites."

  • "Delicious entrees came our right away. But if you are in a hurry to get back to work, I would think twice about dining here."

  • "The beet salad was excellent and the spaghetti with lobster was also quite tasty. But my dinner arrived piping hot while my husband's chicken parmesan arrived lukewarm and dry. We will give the new team another chance because it's a convenient location for us but we do miss the wait staff at Finemondo who were generally responsive and the food was consistently good."

  • "We've been here twice now, both times for lunch. Quick Google searches tell me the place has just opened, and it's a welcome restaurant to add into our office's lunch rotation! It has all the charm of a new restaurant - impeccable service and great quality food at comparatively solid prices. The lunch menu is relatively small, but everything our coworkers have had thus far (maybe 6 or 7 different dishes) are all spot on. Honestly, I prefer a one page menu where all is done right over an excessively long menu where both you and your server are left to guess about the menu items. A great restaurant all around, and we look forward to coming back here regularly!"

  • "Three of us took a break from the work day and chose this place because it was convenient to all our offices. The food was good - my friend had the gnocchi, I had a modern take on a chicken parmesan sandwich which was delicious. We stuck to water due to the whole having to go back to work thing, but the wine list looked good. The place is new so not a lot of diners, but the service was excellent. Would be interested in going back for an evening meal."

  • "Bad food, bad drinks, bad service. Just don't go."

  • "We left with mixed feelings about Noelia. When we heard about a new modern italian restaurant in downtown DC, we expected the restaurant to have a more lively atmosphere. Instead, the restaurant was fairly quiet, except not in that intimate italian restaurant way. We loved the seared scallop risotto, but not the veal filet and ravioli. The drinks were good. If we were to go back, I think we would try to sit in front in the bar area for more of a post work drinks/appetizer/light dinner."

  • "This restaurant was once Finemondo and is now under new ownership. It is still Italian but the food an preparation is so much more detailed. The bar seating is very comfortable as they have nice leather seating. The bartender / server was extremely friendly and attentive. They definitely take pride in ensuring that their service meets your expectations. I ordered the sauteed shrimp and chicken Caesar salad. The sauteed shrimp were extremely tender and well seasoned. The salad came out and the plating was exceptional for a salad as the chicken was grilled, sliced and fanned out across the salad. Very appealing. I will definitely be back to this establishment for dinner."

  • "We had a great meal, and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant was not even half full, yet lunch took an hour and a half with extremely slow service. It would have taken longer had we not sought out or waiter and explained we needed the check and our desserts wrapped to go. Just don't go when you're in a hurry or on your lunch hour and you'll have a great experience."

  • "Noelia is in its opening weeks at the site of the former Finemondo. Decor has lightened, menu has improved. Looking forward to having a great Italian restaurant 1 block from the JW Marriott"

  • "The food was good. The 3 of us ordered the ñoquis and were very please with it. The desserts were great, in the small portion size to me if you are hungry and want also to share. The atmosphere was good and 2 of us had a glass of wine and shared 2 desserts. Total amount including tip was $30. However, they charged my cc twice. Trying to resolve that with my cc provider."

  • "We had the bruschetta trio, scallop risotto, and cappellacci one week after Noelia opened. The staff were very attentive without being all over us, and the dishes were divine. The flavors in the cappellacci were creative but still completely accessible and delightful for this non-foodie. The poached pear dessert and almaretto cheese cake were delicious and portions were just right for one person."

  • "This restaurant was once Finemondo and is now under new ownership. It is still Italian but the food an preparation is so much more detailed. The bar seating is very comfortable as they have leather seating. The bartender / server was extremely friendly and attentive. I ordered their calamari and gnocchi. The calamari is flash fried with a very light batter. I am much more partial to grilled calamari at this point but this was excellently prepared. The calamari was extremely tender and the breading was nice and light. The sauce preparation was nice with the dish. The gnocchi preparation was well done and the portion size was appropriate. I look forward to having dinner here in the near future."

  • "We had no idea it had just opened a few weeks before! Great food for cost!"

  • "Perhaps we tried this recently opened restaurant too soon. The food was on the average side, particularly considering it is located smack dab in the middle of some of DC's best restaurants. Not sure I would go back anytime soon."

  • "From the moment we entered the door, we were made to feel right at home. We were entertaining visiting family members from Texas who had never been to D.C, including a 12- and 10-year-old, and the restaurant was a highlight of their trip. The staff at Noelia was simply wonderful, so friendly and professional. Cocktails, wine, shrimp, veal, tuna, chicken, desserts -- we tried it all, and it was exceptional. I've lived in the Washington area for 31 years, and I rate this as one of my finest dining experiences. I will be returning to Noelia, and it will be my first recommendation for business acquaintances, friends and family."
