It was Sunday before a holiday and after a big political weekend and it felt like a Saturday in the Village. Everyone was out. The restaurant was packed. Despite that, the wait staff and kitchen were impeccable. We had an amazing evening.

Although this Hawaiian restaurant has been opened for a while, it's the 1st opportunity that we've had to come downtown to try it. The food definitely met our expectations from all the rave reviews. The appetizers, starters & mains were all seasoned well & plated nicely. However, the modest piece of grilled octopus was slightly undercooked. They need more illumination than a tiny tea candle at tables. I like to see my food well! The wait staff was attentive. It was also nice to hear Brother Iz's "Over the Rainbow" & other Hawaiian songs while we dined in the small dark restaurant. It didn't take us all the way to Hawaii, but it's cool that we could've eaten a spam creation or mac salad in NY if we wanted it. We'll come back to try other dishes, especially the kahlua pork which is my must-have favorite on every trip to Hawaii. Mahalo.

Had a really great experience at noreetuh. Went for my friend's birthday, and they took note of that when I mentioned it at the time of booking. The waitress wished my friend a happy birthday when we sat, and the menus were custom printed to wish her a happy birthday as well. The food was excellent, exceeded expectations. We split the tuna poke, corn and truffles, kombucha squash, chicken wings, and smoked cod spaghetti - all outstanding, and really interesting, unique dishes. Highly recommend.

My friend and I did the 3 course prix fixe with wine pairings. Our server Sarah was super knowledgeable and really enhanced our experience. The wines were interesting and worked very well with the dishes. Spam agnolotti and creamed corn with summer truffles are can’t misses.

Noreetuh is one of our favorite restaurants in New York. It's outstanding without being stuffy. It feels casual but the food is next level without being intimidating. It's creative and nuanced and supported by a well-priced and excellent wine list. The service is friendly and we always feel well taken care of. Go hungry because you will want to try as many things on the menu as possible!

The food was amazing. I never had Hawaiian food before and it was great. Tried this for restaurant week and the menu options were great. They had a lot of variety of fish and meat. The tuna poke and the spice pork chop amazing. So was the octopus and cod fish. Omnibus was nice and relaxed with Hawaiian music playing in the background.

This is a quiet casual restaurant. We decided to dine at this restaurant based on the menu being advertised for "Resturant Week". The service was adequate and the best part of the meal was the dessert. We chose our meal from the prefix menu.

We both ordered the mushroom tempura for our appetizer. I ordered the Kalua Pork Cavatelli and my mom ordered the five-spiced glazed pork. For dessert I had the chocolate Haupia sundae and my mom had the King's Hawaiian Bread Pudding.

The mushroom appetizer was good. The Kaula Prok Cavatelli was a watery pasta dish with bland pork. I was unable to finish this dish based on the unappetizing appearance and bland taste. My mom felt that the pork dish had an unusual taste but finished it.

Both desserts were delicious. However, after eating my mom stated she did not feel well. Later that night my mom was unable to sleep was all night and was violently ill all night and the next morning. I believe she had food poising.

I will not recommend this restaurant and will never return.

Went for restaurant week. Server was delightful. The poke and mushroom tempura apps were great. The pasta with smoked cod was good but rich (thankfully it wasn't a huge portion). The pork loin (chop?) was good but a bit overcooked. The upside down pineapple cake (for 2) was amazing.... Also was very impressed by the extensive and reasonably priced wine list. Can't wait to go back and try their fried chicken!

I recently came here with a friend to try a cuisine we've never had before (in honor of the late & great Anthony Bourdain). For such a small place, the ambience was cool without being intimidating and super relaxing. Our server was adorable and fantastic and I want her to be my best friend. We were drooling over everything on this menu, so we just went for it with the Luau Feast for two, and I don't know if I've ever gotten a better value for my money. We got an incredible amount of food and everything was INCREDIBLE and jam packed with flavor - the chicken in gravy was to die for, and the tuna poke was the best I've had in New York ... the food here is obviously curated by and cooked by people that love food. I cannot wait to come back.

I surprised my wife by going here 2 months after we got back from Hawaii. We were obsessed with Hawaiin cuisine and noreetuh was like we were still there. The wait staff was amazing and the owner Jim is a gentleman, very polite and friendly. He came out to make sure we were enjoying our food and are absolutely going back. There aren't enough stars to give for a review! Thanks for an amazing meal and experience
