Steaks and seafood were seasoned very well, but the steaks were served near room temperature. The grouper was awesome! Prices were higher than the value. Will most likely try again.
We asked for a Med steak. The $70 steak was well done so we asked that they replaced it and the server asked us to prove it by cutting into the steak just in case it was medium in the middle. So we cut right into it to prove it to her. I think she could have done that herself but after seeing we were telling the truth she took it back. We then got another steak and they asked us again to cut into it. We said it was perfectly cooked. After taking a few bites. We had this deep bitterness that had to be washed off with a drink for every bite. They were able to make the middle perfectly medium but the outside was extremely bitter. The hostess said it was due to the way they cooked it with open flame. This was our first time and my wife’s birthday. I was extremely disappointed with the steak. We also had the oysters and duck which were delicious. I want to make sure that this place should not be chosen for expensive steak.
Fantastic place to have a nice dinner. I love the Asian fusion it’s a mix between fancy and casual.Great for a date night! Not to mention the OYSTERS 😍
Everything was wonderful! We can't wait to go back! The duck breast was amazing and so was the grouper! We are planning our next dinner and bringing friends!!
Food and drinks were amazing! They even brought us dessert with a candle for my husband’s birthday.
Easter Brunch at Noona did not disappoint! We’ve been a number of times for dinner and decided to try it for a family brunch today. We were really excited to see they were actually open for brunch. We started with raw oysters from VA which were delicious. George’s mignonette sauce in the little blue medicine dropper bottle is the perfect accessory to the oysters. The Eggs Benedict with fried oysters was also wonderful! The catfish and vegetable frittata were great too! We finished the brunch, after a long Lenten season with no sugar, with the bread pudding and chocolate cake! It was a fantastic meal with exceptional service! We now plan to go for Mother’s Day Brunch!
Food was delicious, staff was very friendly
Hubby and I were out for our first date in a restaurant since Covid. We had a wonderful time! The food was so, so good, the spacing of seating was adequate for social distancing and the overall ambiance was nice. Our server, Daniel, was friendly and made great suggestions from the menu. We will definitely be back.
Food was good but the place is not appropriate for such prices, for a restaurant with steaks of such prices I normally prefer a more formal setup.
Service was not good they were not prepared to attend properly all tables and drinks and food were taking a long time. It's nice if you're by the area but doesn't worth the drive.
Our anniversary dinner at Noona was everything we wanted it to be. We wanted to try a new to us restaurant, some seafood, and some quieter ambiance. The Rockefeller oysters were amazing, as was the salmon and burger. The service was good and the servers were knowledgeable. The cocktails were also very tasty.
Great food. Great service. Very accommodating staff.
Wonderful birthday celebration! Excellent! Will visit again!
Overall, great establishment! Oysters were really good! If you dab into the cocktails menu, be sure to grab yourself a "pain killer". Thank me later!
We always love spending time here. We went for my daughters 14th birthday and they did not disappoint. The dishes there are always on point. I’ve never had a bad dish!
Noona is always our favorite date night spot in Duluth. The food and cocktails are delicious and consistent at every visit! They put so much care and detail into each patron. George, the owner, is so friendly and attentive, Lydia the bartender makes some of our favorite cocktails, and the chef takes time to come say hi to customers. It’s a fantastic local spot!
Guess they were short staffed. Food was cold, braised short rids were tough and fatty (and cold). Fish was good but mushrooms / garnish was cold. Took over an hour to get our food... we lost our waitress for a long time...drinks took forever.
This is a very good place with really good food and are frequent visitors of this establishment. Will we go again, yes... but when they're fully staffed ;-) (btw, the chef gave us drinks on the house and desert which was cool).
We were there for my wife birthday a party for 8 people.
It took a while for the food to come out. When the food did come out the rice was very cold for two of the people at the table. We had to send those plates back and still the rice was luke warm. The Seared Scallops was extremally small and for the price it was not worth it. Another person in the party ordered the Seared Scallops (2) and they had to send them back due to the fact that they were cold also.
For the price of this place the food was not as expected. I would only go back for the Oysters Rockefeller.
Love this place!! Great option for a date night, girls night or a casual afternoon wine. The staff is welcoming and the wine selection is impeccable. It’s quickly becoming our fave neighborhood spot.
My favorite place to eat! The service and food are amazing.
Noona was phenomenal! For appetizers my boyfriend and I enjoyed the shrimp dish and chargrilled oysters and I recommend both. We both had shrimp and grits for entrees which I highly recommend. The grits were the creamiest and most flavorful I have had. We enjoyed the pear martini and strawberry fields for cocktails. I look forward to going back soon!
They accommodated my requests and made for a great night!! Food was exceptional too!!
The food was underwhelming and the seating was odd
Really enjoyed this upscale restaurant. Great Vibe, nice music, great service and food was amazing. Highly recommend. We had KC strip steak, filet steak, and Grouper, all were just delicious. DO not miss their Korean fried rice.
Food was pretty good. Our dinner for 4 came in around $400 and at that price point I expect much better service and a more intimate environment. We waited for a long time to even be greeted, then waited again to be asked about our drinks. Very slow and inattentive service.
Birthday good food
The food was phenomenal & the service was top notch! They definitely made my birthday dinner very special. Can’t wait to go back!
Filet Mignon was good. Short Rib was extremely fatty and over half of it I could not eat or cut it with a steak knife. Disappointed based on reviews and ratings as our expectations were much higher.
Amazing food, service (Rose) and atmosphere on Valentine’s Day! We will be back to experience the full menu!
Open Table should have shown a forced menu. I was expecting to order from their everyday menu. The food was too preprepared. Most dishes were served overcooked and cold. For $200 I would expect a perfect meal!
This was an awesome restaurant... perfect set up and ambiance! Our waiter was Ben, really nice guy, knowledgeable on recommendations, definitely want to go back. I recommend everyone try this place.
We loved it! Definitely a place we will be returning to very sooner.
Food flavor and service were fantastic! We’ll be back?
Great little spot in downtown Duluth. Good service, atmosphere and food.
The setting there in Duluth is wonderful...
They went the extra mile for us...
You need to go!
The food was very delicious and the service was amazing. I will definitely come back to try the other dishes!
This is always one of my favorites!! Great food and excellent service. Kimchee Fried rice and anything with the gouchugung (forgive my spelling) butter is the best.
Food is fabulous here, high quality, great cocktails too!
We were celebrating my son’s 21st birthday, a little early, before he left to go back to school. This was our third trip to the restaurant, and it didn’t disappoint again! The Oysters Rockerfeller and the Chargrilled Oysters were phenomenal. Everything we had was fantastic. The service was also impeccable. Ben, our server, was attentive and friendly. We can’t wait to go back!
