I advised this was a business meeting so they put us in a small private room.
The server was very attentive. Great experience.
Brussel sprouts are SOOO Good!

I love this place, food is always a treat and they make an effort to seat you where you request, even outside, although no guarantees on the outdoor seating.

Service was a touch slow, but our server was VERY busy!

Our first experience at Noca will not be our last. The moment we arrived we were greeted warmly by the hostess and provided several recommendations that were spot on. The service was attentive, friendly and timely. The fresh catch special of trout checked all the boxes for how fish should be prepared and the sauce was perfectly in tune with the dish. My wife’s crab cakes were a huge hit as they only had enough filler to bind the cakes. Only a few sunsets will occur before we head to Noca again.

Stopped in last night with a friend and had the NOCA martini to start as we sat outside and it was perfect for the hot day. Then we moved j side where we ordered the special of the day and the crab cakes for dinner. We wanted a white wine and Arianna, our waitress suggested the German Riesling and it was amazing!!! Wish I had ordered the bottle from the start! It went perfectly with our dinner whick was equally as good. The place is amazing and so is the service. Arianna is young but she sure knows her wine!! Def will come back and have her pick my pairings. The new manager, Meagan kept checking in on us as well making sure we lacked nothing or needed anything. It was a perfect dinner. So rare to have great food, drinks and service now a days so I definitely recommend you trying NOCA. Also loved the huge AC units in the outdoor patio!

It was our first time to Noca and we really enjoyed it. The shrimp we had for an appetizer were great. All of our entrees were good too. I had the short rib, my wife the grouper and our daughter the steak. The chocolate lava cake was a hit too. We will be back soon.

I'm not one to write reviews but NOCA is worth writing about. Everything was fantastic - appetizers, drinks, entrees, desserts, service, presentation, atmosphere...truly everything. Even the parking attendant was friendly. Each item we ordered had it's own amazing flavor. Each plate was presented beautifully. The staff worked well together, assisting one another as needed. I've already told three people that they must try NOCA and we'll absolutely be back! We were there celebrating our daughters (2 of them) 21st birthday. Thank you for a great experience!

We had a reservation and were seated promptly at an outside table. Service and food were excellent. My first thought after being seated was that the music was loud and would make conversation tough. Before I even had time to frame my request, our server said the volume was too high and she was about to turn it down. Great dining experience

Disappointing. I dined a NOCA on 2 prior occasions and enjoyed both experiences. Unfortunately, the quality of food and service has declined. We visited very early in the evening, so the kitchen and wait staff were experiencing a light workload. We ordered 2 recommended entrees, the Chicken 'sausage' roll and the Pistachio crusted grouper. The chicken was dry with a mediocre flavor and the grouper, which I had enjoyed several years ago, was basically flavorless. Our server was scarce on 2 occasions when we needed beverage refills and were ready for a check. Maybe labor constraints are a factor here, but I won't be returning to NOCA anytime soon.

It was my husband’s birthday. We haven’t been to NOCA in some time in part due to Covid and in part due to our dining out buddies moving to Colorado. BUT…..We are so glad we returned for a special evening. Emma, our server, was perhaps the best server! She was so accommodating to my questions and wine request. Everything we asked for was responded with …’it would be my pleasure…”. She made a special day outstanding.

Food was amazing too! I had the Grouper and my husband a steak. Tried a new wine that the bartender recommended - outstanding.

FABULOUS evening. Thank you NOCA and most especially, Thank you Emma.

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.

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.
