Without a doubt, it was the best Caesar salad that I have ever eaten. I chose the pork chop for my entree and it was delicious, cooked to perfection. It came with mac and cheese, which I feel could have been improved. It needed more cheese. Also, it had succotash which consisted of corn and black eyed peas, a different combination, but very tasty. My friends each chose fish, one sole and one grouper. They were both pleased with their choice. We were stuffed so no dessert. The restaurant is quite charming but the noise factor is over the top loud. We had to shout to have a conversation. It appeared to be ladies night out so you know it had to be noisy. There was a large table of business men so add that and you've got an energetic group. I would definitely go back for the food and the charm of the restaurant. The service was excellent.

Great location in the heart of Roswell. Full menu. Great selections. The Chef is spot on. You will not be disappointed. Short Ribs and the Burger were outstanding. Good wine and beer selection. Service was perfect. You can't go wrong with NOCA. Outdoor seating is available, too.

NOCA has become one my favorites. Friendly & knowledgeable bartenders plus great food. The grouper is among the best in town!

We ordered two drinks, short rib egg rolls as an appetizer, a crab cake entree, and a mahi entree. The drinks were okay. Nothing special but reasonably priced. The egg rolls were good and reasonably priced. The entrees were terrible. The crab cakes were nothing but bread crum filler and tasted more like a pancake dipped in panko. For $30 this was outrageous. The mahi was worse than the crab cakes. The portion size was small, it was impossibly dry, and it tasted like it had been cooked from frozen in the microwave. The drizzle of teriyaki sauce on top did little to hide just how bad the fish was. $23 for the mahi was unreasonable with the small portion size, but especially so given how terrible it was. We are fortunate, however, that the microwave radiation probably killed the bacteria living in the old fish.

Prefect in every way. The food was exceptional and the service couldn't have been better. It was also quieter than most restaurants so you could carry on a ery pleasant conversation. The pace was relaxed with each dish arriving at just the right time. It was our first visit but we will definitely be back again.

We visited NOCA for dinner. The server was new but she did a great job with service and offering recommendations from the menu. Cocktails and dinner were good. The best part of the meal was dessert. Honestly the best lava cake I’ve had thus far!

Debbie, I am sorry to hear that you did not have a great experience with us! I can assure you that every item served from our kitchen is prepared fresh.

Next time you dine with us please ask for Bri, Christian, or Shane, so that we may personally speak with you and ensure the quality of our menu. At any time do you not enjoy your items with us, we will be happy to remake or prepare a new option for you.

Hostess argued when we asked to be seated in a booth. The food was just okay...heavy distasteful oils. Not sure what kind of fat they bathed everything in, but it was not good and overpowered the flavor of the green beans potatoes and crab cakes. Probably won’t return.

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation. Hostess said you’ll have to wait even though there was a 3/4 empty dining room and to get a drink at the bar until they were ready for us. Walked past our eventual empty table to see the 4 seater bar was full so we went and stood in front of restaurant. Waited 10 minutes then was called to come eat even though a party of 4 walked right in and sat before us. Food was so-so, drinks were $12+ a piece. Won’t be coming back.
