Always so happy after dining at Noord! This was our first time for brunch and it was outstanding. Friendly staff as usual and the flavors were out of this world! Thanks Noord family!

This was our second time at Noord. The first time several months ago we had a fabulous experience and loved everything. This time it was good, but less so than the last time. The main difference was that the seasonal menu had changed and we were specifically returning for the delicious grilled fish that we had on our previous visit. This time the fish options included a salmon chowder, whole smoked trout (including skin and bones) and battered & fried fish. Our party of 4 had one of each of these, but we would have preferred 1-2 more grilled fish fillet options.

I was new to a Dutch menu of entrees, and so I used the description on the menu to help me select my meal. I settled on "Lekkerbekjes" on Snert ...crispy beer-battered white fish, ravigote sauce, split peas, bacon, sausage, malt vinegar aioli. It was really delicious. We tried two desserts, the almond cake and the bread pudding. Both excellent. This restaurant is small, so I wouldn't recommend going with a group larger than four people. But certainly, it was a winner!

Some of the absolute BEST food i have ever had!!! LOVED it!!! This is a small local establishment where they clearly take a lot of time creating the perfect meal in the most appetizing presentation. I had the shank. My friend had the salmon. Both were tender and succulent. Perfectly prepared! Excellent service too. The only downside is the total absence of parking. Drove around at least 30 minutes looking for somewhere to park. But still worth it. Definitely going back. Only next time I will take an Uber.

Food and service is absolutely delicious and their passion for the food experience comes through. The space and staff are so welcoming and enjoyable we feel like we're sharing a meal with friends. Wish we lived a bit closer because we'd be regulars.

While not haute cuisine, this is comfort food in my book. Everything is so delicious! And I hope you like bread, because the homemade bread served with the meal could be the best you'll ever have.

I don’t want to write too much. Just know the salmon is very special. The place is extraordinary. My new favorite place. Ambiance got only four stars because I found it uncomfortably hot.

We were there for 3rd time for Brunch. Portions are large. The Brisket Hash was soooooo tasty. The service is always friendly. I can get noisy because of hard room. Also large parties - it was holiday time. So glad it is a BYOB!

The food at Noord was outstanding, and being based in Dutch cuisine was different from the usual offerings at city fine dining restaurants. The staff and owner were very warm and welcoming, but also very on top of things. Noord is an outstanding restaurant!

We had a delightful dining experience at Noord. It was a bit of a trek from Center City but is was worth it. The atmosphere was a quiet neighborhood place. The service was very attentive and was personally shown where to buy the wine. Coming from NYC we were not used to BYOB. The Dutch food was the draw and it did not disappoint.

We had a great time and a great meal. The service was outstanding. Loved the waitstaff. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend the gouda dumplings. It's a main course but I recommend sharing it with a group like an appetizer. I also recommend the Suriname spicy chicken dish.

Service was ok. We ordered two appetizers, the duck special and the brussel sprouts. The duck was dry and overcooked, the brussel sprouts were barely coked and difficult to eat. We are the salmon off the menu for the main course. It lacked flavor and was overcooked / dry as well. We have eaten here on two other occasions and have had good meals, but this meal was extremely disappointing. May not come back.

What a wonderful discovery! Food was excellent, service was top notch and the setting was charming. When our bill came we couldn't believe that such a fabulous meal for 2 was so reasonably priced. Absolutely will go back and have already recommended Noord to friends and family.

The food was excellent and interesting, music just a tad too loud but ambiance is lovely - we were not rushed at all. What really makes the place, though, is the fabulous and personable waiter - attentive yet relaxed and generous and, in particular, kind. My girlfriend and I have been twice and we'll be back for sure. Five stars.
