As usual Noto's was great!
As usual Noto's was great! I love the fact that not only is the food fresh and awesome but the owners take te time to stop the table and chat for few.

The food a Noto's was wonderful
The food a Noto's was wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. We will be going back again. We brought some friends and it was their first time and they loved it. Even the one who was a picky eater felt compelled to try new things.

Great Birthday meal
We went there for a birthday dinner and had an excellent meal. The staff was very friendly, and more than one member wished my guest Happy Birthday.

Excellent Italian experience!
We always enjoy Notos. The food is excellent and they have a very large wonderful wine list. The desserts are to die for!
They have live music in the lounge at the end of the week with various music styles that differ each night. The pride of the Noto family shows in everything from the time you walk in the door to the time you leave. They truely want your evening to be something you'll remember and share.

Have been here at least five
Have been here at least five times, and have never been disappointed. Whenever we are in the Grand Rapids we go here for dinner.

It's all about the quality
This was my 2nd dining experience at Noto's, and both times were fantastic. My wife and I were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. The wine list is almost overwhelming, there are so many choices. We went with the server's suggestion, and it was a great wine. The food was once again spectacular. I enjoyed the hazelnut crusted walleye, which could not have been more perfectly prepared. It's not very often that we enjoy fine dining, but Noto's will always be one of our favorites.

Go for the food
Noto's is priced on the high side for the Grand Rapids area. With that said, the wait staff needs to keep up with the kitchen. The food was very well prepared. Kudos to the chef! Service ranged from very good to MIA during our visit on a Saturday night. The wine list is also very impressive, but take note, if you order your wine by the glass you will be served a small portion. Too bad. This is a perfect spot for Noto's to "wow" it's customers and it misses the mark. We will return for the food which was an excellent blend of northern Italian and southern Italian cuisine.

Notos is my favorite place to eat in Grand Rapids. The food is freshly prepared and always tastes excellent. It has enough tables that it is never too packed, and the service has always been great. They have a huge wine list with varying prices. It is on the pricey side, but I always feel that is was worth every penny after my meal there. The owners always stop by your table to check up on you, and are very friendly. They never make you feel rushed. During our last meal, we sat around drinking wine and then had dessert and coffee while we chatted, and no one pushed us. We ended up being there for three hours because the ambience was so enjoyable.

This was one of the best dining places I have ever experienced. The wine list was unbelievable and service was great. The owner took the from his busy schedule and even showed us the wine cellar. When in Grand Rapids again I will definitely want to return.

Good food, but missed some details
This was our first time to Noto's. We went on a Tuesday night, so the restaurant was nearly empty and very quiet, but that was nice. I'm assuming the weekends are much more bustling. Our appetizer of mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto was good, but very salty (I guess that's to be expected considering the ingredients). And we had asked for it to be prepared gluten-free, but there were bread crumbs on top. My boyfriend ordered Caesar salad and had asked for no anchovies, but had them all over his salad. Aside from that, everything went smoothly and tasted great. The walleye was delicious, as was the gluten-free chocolate cake. Love the wine selection; it would probably take a full day to look through the entire wine book.

The food was fantastic, and the wine list is huge. I'll definitely be coming back.
I think our waitress was new. Things seemed very unfamiliar to her, but she was very pleasant and eager to please. That's the only reason I didn't rank service as high.

We always love eating at Noto's.
We always love eating at Noto's. We thought from the time we ordered our drinks and the time we got them was quite LENGTHLY. We would have liked to have had a drink FASTER. Also, some bread WITH drinks. We were not in a hurry, but thought the whole meal was SLOW.
NO COMPLAINTS....your delicious food makes up for that.

This was the family's first
This was the family's first time to Noto's, and we were very pleased with the entire experience. The atmosphere was very comfortable and the noise level was so low that we could easily hear one another speak. I appreciated the option of choosing between the petite and full size meals. It was also special when the owner Tom stopped by our table to chat with us. We enjoyed talking about some of his memorable trips to Italy. Now that we have finally discovered Noto's we intend to return.

We had a very good experience at Noto's. The service was excellent and food very good as well. It was a weekend night and there was live music in the bar which was a plus.

So friendly and so delicious!
I was considering having my wedding reception there, and so I took my family and fiancee with me to check out the food and overall ambiance. Amazing! The owner took us on a private tour and was really friendly and offered us free appetizers. The staff was very attentive and the food was so delicious! Definitely going to have my reception there and probably come back for anniversaries and such.

Good food, service didn't match
The food was good, the salads were stellar. Our server was gone a few times for a long time when we had already told him we needed to leave by a certain time for a show. He said we'd have plenty of time to leave when we needed to. This was to place our dessert order, and pay our bill.

Slow start but a great experience
Things starting slow but the staff really made it up and he food is excellent. Grest family ownership

Found Notos on the web. Didn't know what to expect. We loved it. The food was wonderful . Very nice selection of wines.

We returned to Notos and another great experience.

My wife and I dined on Wed 13 Nov and were extremely satisfied with the cordial greeting and waiter attitude. We were treated very well and appreciated the moderate pace of the serving. I especially liked my Salmon Paste with Artichokes, Asparagus and Tomatoes. I hope to be able to enjoy this Chef's special again on our next visit. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Chicken Alfredo Paste entree. We ended up in the lounge for desert and coffee while the trio played light jazz. Overall, it a successful evening and we intend to return to Noto's.
