Although the restaurant is small and was quite busy for Sunday Brunch, we were seated as soon as we arrived for our reservation. Service was friendly, attentive, and helpful. The food was creative and excellent, and the portions very generous. We had some dietary restrictions, and the server and kitchen assured that they were accommodated. I am eager to return.

Cannot rave enough about this place. It’s an amazing experience from the moment you walk through the door, to the delicious food and the thank you for coming in to dine friendly goodbyes! We ordered the braised pork with melted gouda, sunyside egg open face sandwich...amazing! The pork was tender, the cheese was nicely melted and the egg was perfectly cooked. We also ordered the french toast...best in town, hands down. It’s sweet but the tartness of the berries balance it out. I don’t crave sweet things, but I woke up this morning craving this dish. Also, paired with the bacon...it’s the perfect mix of sweet and savory.

We got there a little early and the waiter couldn't be more helpful telling my husband I were to go to get a cocktail! He was very sweet to do that! Dinner was excellent! We enjoyed our food very much especially the mussels and dessert

You will be hard pressed to find such a diverse, intriguing and flavorful menu that is 100% consistent every time, as you will at Noord. Not only is the food some of the best in the city, and some of the most unique, to go along with that, which unfortunately you don’t get too often at even the finest restaurants in the city, you get amazing service from the friendliest, warmest staff including head chef and owner, who is part of the staff and will make sure everything is to your satisfaction while sharing a sip of wine with you. If you’ve been, you already know. If you haven’t, I suggest you hurry in as the small, cute window-lined space is extra cozy in the winter.

The food was fantastic, the staff were very funny and made us feel right at home. Prices were very reasonable based on the quality of food and service that we received. I would definitely say if you're looking for a great meal/special occasion spot, Noord should be on your list.

NOORD is our go-to spot for any meal; most frequently for us a later dinner or Sunday brunch. We’re so lucky to live within walking distance and just are in love with the food and service/staff. Special occasions, bringing out of town friends and family, or just because we’re being too lazy to cook, they never disappoint! Love, love, love!!

The homemade breads alone are worth the price of admission. Conversations tend to be redirected to the meals served. Yes, you will talk about the food. Try to save room for dessert ,not always possible, and an excellent cup of coffee.

The menu selection for our brunch was extensive and tantalizing. Several were unique and obviously unavailable elsewhere. We shared the smoked fish board and a vegetable "hash." Both were very good but the hash was unlike what we expected as the potatoes and vegetables were whole and almost like a soup or a stew. The eggs on top were perfect. The dish was very tasty, just not as expected.

The mussels app was really excellent. The rabbit entree was dry. The escargot app was bland. The apple cake dessert was dry and covered with an overly sweet caramel sauce. Overall, it was disappointing.

Outstanding service, food not so great. Waiter was terrific - very personable and attentive, helpful in navigating the menu. Food was disappointing - mussels were dry and rubbery and many didn’t open (not a good sign) although braised pork topping was great, rabbit was tasty but rest of dish was surprisingly flavorless (sausage and lardons?, gravlax appetizer was good but not reallly memorable. Bread was to-die-for, though. Wish that the appetizers and entrees were better, given the great ambiance (pretty space, easy to carry on conversation) and service.

I personally think Noord has one of the best brunches in the city. I’ve tried several things here and everything is delicious, but my go to dish is the sweet potato hash. Pro tip: order the French toast as a shareable dessert. Heaven.

Nice atmosphere with excellent service with an interesting cuisine, largely Dutch.
I had the beef brisket with carrots, potatos and a delicious sauce. My wife had the rabbit with cabbage.
We started with a carrot soup. With a large scallop, and a large crouton. This was a real treat.

It is a small restaurant with very good food,creative. The service is exemplary but, the noise level was excessive. My dish which was Pa. Brook Trout was, great my wife's which was a cheesy ground chicken casserole not so much so. It is to small to be so noisy especially for an anniversary dinner for two.

I have lived in Philly now for 2 years. I should preface by saying one of the reasons my husband and I moved here was because of the food scene. We tried Noord for our anniversary dinner, and I am so glad we did. This restaurant by far stands out as the best meal I have had since moving here! The cuisine is creative, fresh, well prepared, and will blow your tastebuds away.
The service matched the cuisine equally. The staff here go above and beyond to make every person feel welcome and special. From the moment we stepped foot in the door we were greeted with a warm welcome. This is a place where you can tell everyone who works here is passionate about what they do, and truly care about if you are happy there.
I could carry on about this experience, but instead will save it for the review I'll write when I visit there again--which I hope to be doing very soon!

This creative menu with a Nordic flare did not disappoint. My husband and I ordered an appetizer and different meals (all with very different tastes) and everything was done to perfection! Normally I'm all about the appetizers and main entrée however save room for desert when you come here! I was completely floored by how delicious our cake was and still am baffled how they made the caramel a perfect fluffy consistency.
After our feast we were pleasantly surprised to find that our bill was very reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food. This is a BYOB which makes it the perfect date night spot!
