Awesome food! We shared appetizers for the table and got to taste everything on the menu. Fabulous ceviche, ribeye, octopus...
And super sangria. We’ll be back again and again.

My OpenTable reservation was a little off. I requested outdoor seating, Nolita Hall's reservation system didn't reflect that request and we had to sit inside at a really bad seat.

We waited over an hour to get our food. It took so long, in fact, we thought the order was forgotten altogether. When we asked about it, the server said they were really backed up in the kitchen and suggested we order a seared fish dish because it would come out fast while we waited for our original order of food to be fired. So we did, but the seared fish came out about 30 minutes later, and after we had finished the original meal that was finally delivered to us. It was a mess, but hopefully just a hiccough in getting back on their feet from COVID-hiatus.

We waited over 1 hour and 45 min for our food. We loved Nolita Hall but it was clear they did not know how to run things after re-opening. No one said a word to us and when we let the manager know how long we had waited he just said the kitchen was backed up and offered no help or options until complaining a second time. Our 3 year old was starving and when we complained again and asked for crackers or something for our child he then (after asking the waitress multiple times) brought out a salsa type tomato dish...for our toddler. The ambiance was beautiful and we may have had more drinks and stuck it out had anyone showed the least bit of care or concern. We ended up leaving...with no food and went to The Cottage in La Jolla...which was amazing and we received our food within 15 minutes and it was delicious.

We had a reservation at 11am when they opened for brunch. We were the third table seated, and it took over an hour for our fourth’s food to arrive. Two plate came out after 25 minutes with cold eggs, one plate came out five minutes later, then the fourth never arrived. The manager spoke to us and comped that one meal (honestly should have comped our drinks and apps as well since it inconvenienced us all) and then the server came over to talk about how awkward it all was. Very annoyed to then look up reviews and see everyone says the service sucks. I’m tired of restaurants resting on their ambience as a way to bring people in. Do better. I was a server for ten years. Take care of your tables. Talk to them. It’s not that hard.

Cool place and good food. Ordered a drink from our server then he never came back for 45 minutes. Just gave us the check and completely forgot about the drink. The service made it a bad experience.

Nolita Hall is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful ambiance. We have eaten there several times, and food and service have both been great. This time though they were out of two items on the menu that we wanted to order, service was slow, etc. But, once we finally got all of our meals, the food was delicious. They have only been open for two weeks due to closing during the pandemic, so I’m sure they are working out the kinks. We will be back soon and hopefully the service, and timing of the food will be worked out. I love the outdoor dining and the fact that all the walls open up to give it a light, open feel. Whoever designed the restaurant did a beautiful job.

Always love dining here! The food is always excellent, the staff is friendly and efficient, and the ambience is great! I was seated in the outdoor patio during my most recent visit and it was so beautifully decorated and I felt safely spaced out from other guests. Definitely recommend making a reservation to secure a table (especially over the weekend)! Ordered the Breakfast Sando and I'll definitely be ordering it again - so good and filling! Can't wait to come back!

Service was slow. Menu was limited. At 3:30 pm only Brunch options were available. Very loud due to college student atmosphere not restaurant's fault. Food was not the same quality from a year ago, I was very disappointed.

Food is overpriced and mediocre (at best) for Downtown there are plenty of other options that would be a much better dining experience. Also, while this is not the restaurants fault the clientele were larger groups of 30’s Bros drinking to completion so if you are trying to ease back into indoor dining this might not be the best place.

The pancake platter was $30 dollars for ~7-8 small pancakes, some butter and sprinkles. They were really dry and absolutely not worth it. The service was mediocre at best and the staff treated us like we were 2nd class citizens (e.g. poor seating, slow service, etc.).

In general, even though it's a nice venue, I would not go back for food as it's overpriced and bad.

My husband and I took my sister and brother-in-law to dinner. The pictures looked delicious but they did it no justice. We had a few appetizers, the charcuterie board was exquisite. The drinks and pizza were also very good but the pork chop and ribeye were outstanding. Highly recommended all of it.
