I’m am going to miss Nolen tremendously! We have walked there at least a dozen times since having our daughter in April. It has served me well over the years for 1/2 off wine nights, girls nights, dates, birthdays, milestone celebrations, etc.
Food tasted good . Crab cakes could be better , they were a bit mushy and. It lump crab .
Edamame was tasty with siracha salt .
Wild chicken: white meat was a bit tough . Dark meat had good flavor with mustard and mushrooms .
Sea scallops were cooked perfectly and tasty.
Risotto was a bit lukewarm .
They could warm their plates to ensure that the base the food is sitting on doesn't cool .
Great service .
Wine selection is nice.
Trendy 😆, good for get together with friends or even with kids . Anniversary dinner / maybe pick somewhere else with a bit more ambiance . It was noisy and sometimes hard to hear across the table . I would go back and try lunch .
Thanks Lou for doing a great job of taking care of our table. We truly enjoyed the dining experience from start to finish. The Chicken Souvlaki and Flank Steak were our entrees and both were well seasoned. We really enjoyed the side Mediterranean Salad.
Great experience-we ate on the patio and it’s beautiful. We had poke as an appetizer and it was wonderful. I had scallops as my entree and my husband had short ribs with truffle mac and cheese. We each thought we had picked the best dinner. I’m sad that I can’t remember the name of our server because she did a terrific job. Can’t wait to go back.
Pretty good however I was very disappointed to find the menu had changed - no longer offering some of my favorites. Our server indicated here is new ownership and therefore some signature dishes are no longer available. Too bad that your on line menu still includes them, which is why we opted to dine there that night! :(
I must preface this with the fact that I eat out a great deal because I travel for a living. The tartare and the veggies were amazing. I decided to opt out of a larger entree. My service was just okay. It was just me and there were long periods of time where my server was not available. I know it is hard to balance attention versus diner privacy. Overall, she was very nice and genuine but young and often greeted me as "madame" and a Mrs. I am a single 40ish female and both of those sounded really artificial. I think most of her demeanor was just her age and lack of experience. She noted that the apple pie was the "best" dessert and it was really just average - sliced apples with a crumble. I was actually surprised how traditional it was based on your menu and she may need to describe it like that going forward. As a southerner, this was just run of the mill. She was kind and took it off my bill. On the whole, I would definitely come back.
The food was excellent, as usual, and service was attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was lively enough to be fun without being so loud that my table of 8 couldn't converse easily. I highly recommend Nolen Kitchen for lunch or dinner.
