Bad service experience. We were rarely check on, and our server had a terrible attitude and seemed like he didn’t want to be there.

Wonderful food and atmosphere. The hostess was great as she honored request to have a private table by the window and had it ready for us upon arrival. Our server was great as well and very attentive, despite how busy he was. Great place and will happily revisit!

I hate to write this because the food is good and the staff are terrific...but I’d recommend avoiding Nolo’s for now. I’m skeptical they’re following the COVID rules Minneapolis has in place. When we arrived it sure seemed like the room was more than 50% full and the 3-4 tables in front of the banquette were hosting a birthday party of 20-30 people moving from table to table, etc. It was a zoo. Support these folks...order takeout (tip on it!), buy gift cards, etc. Be careful about dining in.

Food is always amazing. Service is unreliable. Either super attentive, or just mostly ignored.

Food was really delicious. Loved the burger and fried rice. Seemed to have numerous large groups of people however we weren’t sitting near them so felt fairly safe. Service was good.

Everything was great considering the world we are in now - as they have tables and chairs on the parking lot - but - comfortable chairs and a decent way to do things - NOT A SOUL in the dining room that night when we came in so everyone seems to be OK with this arrangement as they were ALL out on the parking lot. Food, service, drinks - all very good. I wish they would put a few potted plants out there but....At least they are open finally.

This is our go to place, as we can walk and the food is great. Looking forward to the old menu with a few more options, but with COVID we have to make do with fewer options and that is OK. Never a complaint on many visits; all good.
