Great cocktails and food. The cheeseburger might be the best in the area and the smoked chicken pizza was delicious. Can't go wrong visiting.

Great place that has embraced the new regulations for COVID. I loved the online menu. I ordered a salad with chicken and it was great. Definitely recommend.

We had a great experience eating at Nolo’s on the outdoor patio. The food was delicious, as always. The service was warm, friendly, efficient, and importantly made us feel safe and comfortable during this time of Covid. Thank you so much! And one request - please add your Duck Burger back to your menu! It is most loved.

Great to be able to eat on Washington Avenue - sat outside, service was good - I expect it will get better once they work out the kinks in the process. Food was great. The server split our portions without asking - nicely done!

The outdoor seating was super great considering it was raining and very windy! The service was friendly and very accommodating! Would definitely recommend.

Thanks for the tent in the parking lot. It was great. I think you should keep it through the summer! I didn’t mind it was a parking lot at all. And their servers today were working hard and we were so appreciative about that because it’s hot and they were working in masks. Missed you guys

So excited to get back to Nolo’s. Had a reservation outside and definitely feel they should continue the outdoor dining option through Summer. Our server was great and the new salmon dish was FAB.

We celebrated a birthday with Nolos brunch. Drinks and food were excellent but they were slow to come out and it took about 2.5 hours drinks to checks.

Food and service were excellent. The overcrowded table behind us of a group overindulged in the $20 endless mimosas was very annoying!!

I had high expectations and was a little disappointed. I went with my partner for his birthday and the server didn’t acknowledge his birthday at all, even when she checked his ID for a drink. I ordered the shrimp fettuccine pasta and the pasta was firm and chewy.

I would recommend to friends yes. But I would say sit on the other side. The noise level was quite atrocious. Food was phenomenal though. Only thing I wish I could change would be the noise level. But I know begged a can’t be choosers. Was a fun date night just wish I could have heard her:)

I really enjoyed my time at Nolos. The food was really great, it was in a fabulous area, and I enjoyed my service. The problem was it was so loud in the dining area. The noise from the bar was overflowing into the dining area and was almost unbearable. I could not hear the individual I was with who is sitting across from me.

We enjoyed the cozy booth and the openness of the restaurant. The burrata was different and delicious. We both ate pasta. The shrimp fettucine and the crab bucatini were both fabulous, and enough food to provide lunch the next day. Service was attentive and friendly. Nice find!

Their food and service was excellent, had a later reservation because of the shortage of parking.
