  • "My wife and I have dined at NOLA on three occasions. We have enjoyed each visit. We have ordered about 4 different entrees ourselves, with several other dishes being ordered by our guest. Each menu item was thoroughly enjoyed. The Bread Pudding is one of the best desserts I have eaten in Texas. The food is excellent and we will return!"

  • "Lamb was out of stock so server offered to substitute with filet mignon. Sent it back because it was undercooked. Chef grilled their regular steak dish instead. I ordered medium but still came back very red in the middle. Wife order a pasta dish that was just ok at best. Pianist couldn't play a single tune literally. She was just messing around playing different chords that didn't even make sense. She tried to Alicia Keys but quit in the middle of the song and played some other nonesense. It was like someone practicing at home. Sounded terrible and had to listen to it for an hour. Definitely will not be going back ever."

  • "Chargrilled oysters were not available..."truck from Louisiana had not arrived yet today"...it was 12:30 pm. No Southern Comfort stocked at the bar. Fried green tomatoes with shrimp was delightful. Copper Salmon was really good and prepared to order since it was lunchtime and usually not available for lunch."

  • "I invited my sisters and stepmom to Mothers Day lunch and it was great! We had a reservation - luckily, as it got quite crowded. The restaurant even called to confirm the reservation the day before. We arrived early but were seated right away. Free mimosas for moms was nice. Try the Andouille Sausage appetizers - with Red Beans and Rice. I had the NOLA Benedict - fried green tomatoes, crab, poached egg and creole mustard sauce -mmmm. My sister had the BBQ Shrimp and Grits - delciieux! The bread pudding was to die for! Our server was energetic and friendly. The only issue was that it took a while for our food to come once ordered, but then, it was a full restaurant. "

  • "I had the calamari, my partner had a house salad. The calamari was excellent. We followed that with grilled Red Fish and a seafood pasta, forget the name but loved the dish. We then had our server recommended Bread Pudding Outstanding. Service was top notch and the little Jazz band gave everything a cool grove. We will return."

  • "The husband was disappointed to find that they took off the pork chop. He went with the pasta which I had gotten before. I noticed that the portion has shrunk on that (before it was definitely enough for 2, so it was still large enough, but they kept the price and reduced the portion for sure). I tried their new pork dish - pork brisket. I'm pregnant so I had to get it med-well (it comes med-rare). It was still good but took some extra time to prepare. I think I should have chosen differently, but I had already made up my mind. The new potato salad that came with my dish was very mayo-heavy and I did not care for it. The charbroiled oysters are still a fave. Service was fair that night. I had to ask for bread/butter. Didn't see waiter much."

  • "The food is good, but the dining experience is not worth the price tag. Have tried the duck and sampled the steak. Both delicious (steak slightly overcooked for medium). Have visited twice for dinner. The first time the service was stellar. Second time it was only adequate. The hostess staff is young...again, does not fit the price tag of the meal. Ambiance leaves something to be desired. Maybe if someone were playing the piano that sits right at the front door, the ambiance could be taken up a notch. Love the location off Main Street Frisco. "

  • "My wife and I tried this one for a date night and it was really enjoyable with some areas of improvement. The starter cocktails were excellent and so was the Charbroiled Oysters for an appetizer. We also started with the gumbo for my wife and I had the lobster bisque. Both were great with the right amount of heat. For dinner, my wife had the special for that day. Unfortunately it was a bit bland (no heat). I had the special for the day before (red fish). The dish was excellent. The service was excellent and conversational. We really enjoyed having a server that knew the food and was enthusiastic about our visit. Try to sit far away from the piano. The music was loud for the size of the room and the floors really amplify the sound."

  • "I can't say enough great things about Nola Grill. From the very start when our waiter, Steve, greeted us, to the appetizer, entrée and desert choices... the entire experience was outstanding. Food is easily on-par with some of the best dining spots in DFW. We'll be back for sure."

  • "Having heard mixed reviews secondhand, we were a bit apprehensive about our visit. That changed quickly upon our arrival. The hostess and waiters were very friendly. Drinks were quickly served and appetizers were outstanding! My fiancée had the crab soup and we shared fried green tomatoes. Our entrees followed and exceeded our expectations. The NOLA Benedict was as good as anything I've enjoyed in New Orleans, and I've dined there many times. We would rate Nola as the top restaurant, actually in Frisco proper."

  • "The restaurant was a nice place tucked away. The food was good, out waitress was great, and the live music made for a very enjoyable dinner. The Hurricane's were very tasty and dessert so sweet. The meal was good and present very nicely. The pricing is a bit high, but still would recommend. Also I would add that even being a Saturday night and a soccer game going on. Service was good even with a pack house."

  • "First time experience was Amazing from the food to the service. Being from New Orleans and traveling to Dallas we had to try this. The food is so authentic that I'm amazed its in Dallas because we have tried the other so called Cajun places that miss the mark by far. Nola grill is the best restaurant in Dallas. When we are in town we will be back for sure!!!!!"

  • "It was our first time at the restaurant, We have been to New Orleans & the food was not quite there. We have lived in California wine country, the wine list was lacking variety, especially for spicier food & was way overpriced for Texas. We ordered wine just to go with the appetizer, & it took took 45 min to receive to appetizer. The server forgot to enter our order until our entree came & I asked what happened to our appetizer. The ambiance was low & it was noisy."

  • "I really want Nola Grill to be my "go-to" neighborhood place for great food and fun times. It is really not working for me. First, the prices are pretty hefty. I get it, but with generous prices, I'd like GREAT service. I will say, the food is really good. Perhaps some day price, food and service will align. I really want to make this my local spot. Just not feeling it right now."

  • "I have dined at the most of the 5 star restaurants here in Dallas. I went on line and read the reviews about Nola's and reviewed the menu and thought it looked appealing. I was mentioning at work that my fiance' and I had reservations and one of my coworkers mentioned that the food was great. We had reservations (strongly recommended). Steve was our server and he was exceptional. He knew it was our first time in and guided us every step of the way. I had the most delicious She Crab Soup and my fiance' had the Duck and Sausage Gumbo and both had depth of flavor and seasoning was perfect. Then, I ordered the Shrimp and Grits and they were out of this world. We will for sure be back!!! Excellent execution and we can't wait to go back!!!"

  • "It was ok. The She Crab Soup was great. But entrée wasn't worth the price. The jazz band was ok as well."

  • "First visit to this new restaurant will probably be my last. I really wanted to like NOLA, but the experience was negative from the time I walked in the door. The hostess didn't speak, didn't acknowledge my presence until I told her I had a reservation. She showed us to a table without a word or smile. The menu is small and pricey. I ordered the jazzy seafood pasta with shrimp. I found 5 very small pieces of shrimp among the spiral macaroni. The flavor wasn't horrible, but not worth returning for. Our waiter disappeared forever and left us with empty glasses and dirty dishes in front of us. Certainly not the dining experience I was hoping for."

  • "We have been wanting to try Nola since we moved to Frisco. We had some relatives in from out of state and chose to go to Nola with them for a special night out. We were so pleased with our experience and our family members were blown away. There was a large party there, so it was kind of busy and loud, but we were still able to have a very intimite experience. The food was the best and we really had a good sampling of the menu. The wine and desert was great too. We highly recommend it and if you go ask for Lance as your server."

  • "The restaurant is relatively new, however the food was amazing. I had the fried gator bites, blackened mozzarella salad, redfish étouffée with bread pudding for desert. The gator bites and étouffée were delicious, however the bread pudding was astounding. I would definitely recommend going there."

  • "I took my husband to your restaurant for the first time this weekend for lunch to celebrate his 50th Birthday. We were impressed from the moment we walked in the door, the service was incredible, Mindy did a wonderful job, she was friendly, fun but not over the top. The food was wonderful, we had oysters on the half shell, fried oysters, soup and the Eggs Benedict Special followed by dessert. We would highly recommend this restaurant to all we meet. I actually gave you a plug on my FB page since we took pics. Thank you again we will be back soon!"

  • "My first visit was great but second visit was good but not great. Probably because first visit was on a Wednesday night and second visit was on a Saturday night. Took the waiter some time to greet us. Fried green tomatoes were a bit bland the second time around. The pork chop was not cooked well enough the second time around. The coke was too syrupy and not fizzy enough. Would go back but not on a busy night."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The service started off on the wrong foot due to a delay in greeting us at the table and taking our drink order. However, she made up for it with a smile and good service after the initial delay. I could only give the Food 3 stars because our calamari appetizer was not very good. The entrees were excellent, so the night was no a total loss."

  • "Our evening spent dining at NOLA could have only been better with less noise. We let our waiter help us with our entre selections and he did a wonderful job. The duck and sausage gumbo was as good as it gets!! The spouse and I chose different entres and shared. Both were excellent!! We will be back!!"

  • "First time to dine at Nola grill. Limited menu ... Would have liked to see a fish chef specialty for the day. The special was a Pork tenderloin. Saw another table order it- looked delicious! Chose the crab cakes. The best I've eaten and I make them At home often. Divine sauce surrounding them along with asparagus and grits. I was trying to avoid carbs but couldn't resist The grits n sauce! Others at our table at the duck and the trout dishes - also delicious. Beautiful presentation of food! Great service! Try this gem - you won't be disappointed! We will be back!"

  • "We went for the 2nd time after we were stunned by the quality and the portion/ sizes of oysters. We had to learn the hard way that our 2nd visit was not as enjoyable. The oysters were very small and I had ordered the blackfish which was totally over cooked. Hope that this will not happen again since we really enjoyed that place the first time we went"

  • "Frisco Square has always been missing something and I'm happy to say it has found it! Nola Grill was a pleasant surprise in a place where restaurants open and close before you can say, "Bon Appetite!" It was very crowded when we arrived but with the indoor/outdoor bar we were able to enjoy a cocktail prior to be seated for our reservation. With it being Valentine's Day weekend, the staff was overly attentive and made us feel like we were VIPs. We started with the fried calamari and the she crab soup. Both excellent: calamari was fried, but light and flavorful and the soup was rich and just the right amount. I had the NY Strip and aside from a few fatty pieces, it was cooked and seasoned perfectly with a great accompaniment of sides."

  • "This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The food was very high quality and prepared exactly as we requested. This was a special menu for Valentines Day -- four courses, which we wouldn't normally order, but gave a chance to try the bread pudding, which was awesome. The ambiance was very nice, it's not too big, and the servers were very attentive without being obtrusive. The outdoor area looked nice, but it was a little cold the night we were there. We plan to go back to try the full menu, and try the outdoor patio."
