As always we enjoyed our dinner at Nora's. The food was delicious, dinner was not rushed. We stayed and chatted after dinner and were not rushed out. Love their harvest salad. Our party ordered a variety of dished and each was very much enjoyed. We will go back.

We chose Nora’s for Valentines Day with another couple. The food was absolutely delicious and we each had a different entree. The dining area was nice with plenty of room and a nice atmosphere. The wait staff were awesome and attentive. There was also live music to round out a beautiful evening. Nora’s will gave regular spot on our scheduke! Best food around!

Awesome food. Went with another couple all our meals were the best. The best food I have had in a while. My only criticism it took a long time I mean like 1/2 hour after desert to get our check. She never even came back to check on desert. They were busy, but still you would think they would want t to free up the table. Also tables are small when talking 4 meals and apps.
The chef is awesome would definitely recommend and go back.

We found Nira’s Online and drove about 45 minutes from CT to MA on scold wintry night. Found Nora’s and the place was packed, but our reserved table was ready immediately. Get the eggplant appetizer. I’m not a big eggplant person, but I could have made a meal of their eggplant tower. If you go to Nora’s, get it. You won’t be disappointed. Everyone loved their entrees too. We’ll be back. Oh, live music too. And not too loud.

The only issue, is there were no vegetarian options on the menu, which didn’t stop me from enjoying the appetizers and salad. It would be nice to have a few entree options to choose from though.

We had a great time. Enjoyed the food. The service was great. The server checked in several times to make sure everything was what we wanted. The server went the extra mile to put things together the way we wanted.

Food was excellent. Portions were generous and nicely prepared. They had a couple of large parties they were hosting so service was slow. I heard several of the wait staff mention they were slammed during the course of our evening.

This is our favorite restaurant in the Farmington Valley/Greater Springfield area. The only drawback is the limited parking, but once inside it is a cozy atmosphere, perfect for a romantic date or a get together with friends. Our favorite appetizer is the eggplant tower which is heavenly, but we tried crispy brussel sprouts last night which I loved just as much. Every dish is wonderfully prepared, but their haddock Florentine stands out -- melts in your mouth. The staff is friendly and the drinks are reasonably priced. Also a nice bar if you're looking to hang out and enjoy drinks and apps. They do have some limited al fresco dining, plus a small upstairs dining room perfect for a small conference. If there is a better restaurant in Western Mass I have yet to find it.

Very disappointing. Heard several good things do decided to try it. Had to park about 400 yards away. Took over 30 mins to get a drink. Martini was sub standard. Mai tai could have been anything. Tried to order one of their special meals and they were out. And it was only 7 PM. Ordered a calamari appetizer that never arrived. Wife had salmon with soy bourbon glaze. Salmon was very good but they forgot to put the glaze on it. We wont go back.

Very good service despite some large parties and reviews suggesting otherwise. The apps, particularly the perogies were exceptional. Unfortunately, the entrees were mostly misses. There was a dearth of seasoning on most dishes, the swordfish was a tad overdone and the chicken (a "popular" dish) was felled by too much time in the fryer. I would go back for the apps.

Once again food just great! Really delicious! Fast friendly service. My only complaint is when you make a dinner reservation you don't expect to be seated in the bar with the live music. If you don't have room to add a reservation then don't. If we were there for the bar it would have been great but for dinner conversation we couldn't hear one another.

Terrible experience, service was horrible - a table of five was served before my table of two and we arrived 20-minute earlier. No attention to detail. Drink orders were forgotten about. We had to ask to hear the specials, we had to ask for bread, we had to verbally cancel a drink order that never arrived anyway. Loud music started playing shortly after our arrival so you couldn't have a conversation. We've been to Nora's before and enjoyed it but this last visit is our final visit. There are plenty of there places to bring our business. Save your patience and your money, skip Nora's.

Fried Brussels were amazing, and the spinach salad with goat cheese was incredible as well. Less incredible was it took over an hour to get the apps, and another hour to get entrées. As good as the apps were we were patiently anticipating an outstanding dinner. Sadly, not so much. The scallops were good, but slightly overcooked, the chicken Nora, which had the makings to be outstanding was beautiful breaded and fried, but the chicken was complete rubber, virtually impossible to chew. It seems that they have a good chef creating some nice dishes, but some really poor execution. We will go back, but for apps and drinks and the view of the lake, skipping dinner...
