Great atmosphere! The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and gave helpful recommendations of both food and drink pairings. Very attentive staff...I never once had an empty glass! The chicken karaage was amazing and the NoJa potatoes are some of the best potatoes I’ve ever eaten! Try the ginger donut with popcorn ice cream...it’s delicious!

Everything was great! Definitely recommend the shrimp & scallions appetizer and deer tongue salad. The dry-aged steak and lamb was also out-of-this-world good. Every single bite of food this place has to offer is an exceptional experience.

The panko crusted mahi was delicious, perfectly cooked and flaky. Brussels sprouts were quite crunchy with no discernible flavor. Fingerling potatoes were okay. Special salad was top notch as was the creme brûlée. Service was friendly and attentive. Would definitely go again. The other fish dish and the lamb chops were also rated highly.

We had a delightful time at NoJa. Our server provided just the right amount of attention, and gave us his take on the different dishes. We took his advice! I loved the lamb shank, and my husband was extremely pleased with his duck. The noise level was low, so conversation was easy. We will be back!

NoJa is a quaint little restaurant in the downtown Mobile area. The service and atmosphere was good. Food was very good. We were seated along the wall that had a bench seat the length of the wall with 4 tables and a chair on the other side of the tables. This seating is very close together and really too close to the other couple next to you. You can hear every word they are saying and made us feel like we could not engage in a lot of conversation while dining. I would suggest requesting a table that is not on this seating arrangement. Otherwise, a nice place to enjoy a good meal .

The tab runs higher that that to which we are accustomed, but we felt the value was there for a special occasion. The food was not the world's best, but it was really quite good, the ambience was great, and our waiter was excellent. In this town, you will not find much better for a special occasion. I particularly like the fact that the prices are posted on-line so you know what to expect in advance.

Ended up eating of the small plates menu. Felt some the dishes weren't unique to area (seen many items at other places). Shrimp and scallops were my favorite. Gingered donut was excellent. Foie Gras was very good but presentation was a little weird looking (the sauce to me looked like....let's just say it looked like something that it was just unwrapped from butcher paper and mushed up and smeared on the plate--tasted great but took me a while to clear the image from my mind). We enjoyed ourselves but felt it was over priced for what we got. It is a fancy, hot restaurant that you will have to hit the refrigerator when you get home. I would hesitate to reccoommend. I would (and did) point in a different direction.
