AMAZING food & service!! The cuisine is different than what you’ll find in most Philly restaurants, but we loved it. The homemade bread shouldn’t be missed!
Everything is so delicious we always eat too much. Love this place.
2nd time around for me as I loved this restaurant when I discovered it a year or so ago.
Unfortunately I was not as thrilled this time.
The bread was overly salty and fresh from the toaster, not the oven and felt chewy like a yesterday's bread.
The salmon was ok not great and the chowder looked like a mush of veggies.
Deserts: we tried each on the menu and were totally unimpressed... you can pass.
I brought guests. They were happy. I was disappointed.
Never a bad meal, and the owners are amazing!!
Had a lovely Dinner at Noord on Saturday Night. Joncarl Lachman was out of the Kitchen and made all of the diners feel welcome and serving dishes. Reminds me of the food I used to have in the Netherlands when I was traveling for work. You never get a bad meal at this restaurant starting with the Bread which is everyone's favorite. I love the Bitterballen as a Starter and the Salmon 'Lohikeitto'. I sop up the remaining chowder with the bread. My Partner is Vegan and the kitchen staff accommodated him with the Brussel Sprouts without cream fraiche and the Baked Acorn Squash; goat cheese on the side for me. Love that it is BYO and you can usually find street parking if you go early enough. We usually go at least once each season. Bring a nice bottle of wine to enjoy.
Delicious food, very friendly service, fun and relaxed atmosphere. We tried the gravlax, pork loin, sirloin meatballs and the almond cake, and of course the delicious bread. We would certainly go back and recommend to friends.
Incredible food and service. Can't believe this place is hiding in south philly!
The ambiance and staff are the highlights of Noord. The interior is cozy and feels like you’re at home for a family dinner. The staff is gracious and accommodating. BYOB is also definitely a plus and helps keep the cost down. The food, however, was thoroughly underwhelming. The food wasn’t bad by any means, but I think this place is severely overhyped. The chefs seem to have an aversion to salt and seasoning, leading to mediocre food an average person could make at home. Will not be returning.
When I asked my Dutch husband where he wanted to go Valentines Day he immediately said Noord! You just can’t go wrong and the price fixe, 5 course dinner did not disappoint. They even substituted a kroket for me because I don’t
Like fish. The quality of the food is just so good - everything is excellent! And the people that work there are so welcoming and friendly! It’s not
Like any other restaurant I know in Philly. If you haven’t been then go -
It’s truly a great experience every time!
Fabulous brunch experience. For anyone seeking a very unique and authentic dutch caribbean experience this is definitely the place to go. Superbly combined flavors and textures. I travel a great deal and experience a wide variety of food.. this amongst the best !!!!!!!
Good meal with some friends. Our server was very polite, made lots of recommendations and answered all of the questions we had about the menu. Brussels sprouts, bitterballen and the spiced lamb hash... all sooooo tasty. My favorite was the bitterballen, the lamb was a close second... tasted very stewey but loved the sunny side egg on top. We also shared the salmon which was absolutely delicious... medium rare in a delicious shallow bed of chowder and also the brisket which was amazing. I would recommend the brisket for someone looking for a very hearty and filling meal. Highly recommended trying. Great BYO
Wow! What an amazing dining experience at Noord. The atmosphere, service and food all top notch! Can't wait to return!
Noord has a unique cuisine that you can’t find anywhere else. The bread they send out before the meal is probably the best bread in the city, toasted on the grill I think. Every time I’ve been here, the bread is a different deliciousness. As far as the meal goes, bring your appetite because the portions are not typical baby byob portions. The staff is so fun and welcoming. I really love coming here and highly recommend it.
Had an amazing experience at Noord!! This place is so cute and the food is filling and flavorful and delicious! The server Louis was so fun and made our experience really wonderful ☺️ could not recommend this more!!
Fantastic experience. Can’t wait to go back again. So friendly & great flavors. Thanks to all the staff at Noord for a great time.
Everyone made our graduation celebration feel so incredibly special! The attention to detail and extra effort to make our occasion memorable was one of a kind and greatly appreciated. The food is absolutely amazing! Between the seven of us, we ordered the bread pudding french toast, braised pork and melted Gouda with two sunny eggs, gooseberry Dutch toast, and the spicy chicken omelette (special). One of my favorite brunch spots in East Passyunk, hands down!! You can’t go wrong with any of these items.
We hadn't visited NOORD in a while and when we found ourselves with a free evening and an open table, we jumped at the chance. We love noord for the food: you won't eat anything like this anywhere. We also love noord for the LOVE. We always feel special, like family. This is one of our top favorites.
Wonderful restaurant- service, food, ambience was perfect.
Our server was genuinely the best waiter my entire family has ever had. Extremely attentive and not afraid to tell you what not to get on the menu. the lamb gratin appetizer was unreal and the meatballs were very good. Lastly, the bread pudding was THE BEST DESSERT I have ever had. Homemade creme fresh and preserves over top of the bread pudding itself. If for no other reason, go there to get that dessert.
Fantastic food, as always. I look forward to fresh-baked bread with roasted garlic and the herring sliders appetizer whenever I go to Noord. This time we got mussels, which had the perfect texture.
We have been to Noord many times and are never disappointed. The great food is only matched by the equally great service. But the food and service are only the base line, dining at Noord is a great experience.
We have never had a bad meal at Noord!
We’ve brought many friends and relatives here and it’s always a hit!
The food is extremely well prepared. The service is friendly and attentive without being snobbish or overbearing.
The Norwegian style of food is basically just light excellent dishes, with some having enough variation to make it possible to try a new flavor—if you wish. The bread is to die for!!
We were also so happy that the “chocolate pieces” dessert had returned.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Very small, and a bit loud, but did not detract from the experience. We will be back. Fish Combo Tray was excellent.
Very disappointed with food. The staff was very pleasant and the atomspghere was great. Loved the art work on the walls.
A Scandinavian BYOB in Philly isn't the kind of place that jumps out at the average beginner foodie, but this place is fantastic. Featuring a tasting menu or an a la cart entree selection, the food here is incredible and surprisingly affordable compared to restaurants in Philly that charge more for smaller, less exceptional dishes. Their rabbit dish alone was amazing, but their fish options and deserts are equally amazing. If you like picked anything, this is the place for you--and the service was exceptionally friendly without being intrusive. A must try.
Great restaurant, great service and excellent value. Noise level is high, but we managed to have a good conversation in a table of four. Food can be too rich, but overall very good. I look forward to going back!
Always a great time. Like family without all the tension. Warm and cozy. Service is beyond great. Food yummy. Owners make u feel so welcome. We knows it’s always going to be a great night at Noord
Made us feel welcome. Food was outstanding. Not a single note off. Definitely will return.
We’ve been to Noord now several times and it’s always amazing but this time was especially great. We went on a Sunday eve for our anniversary (quieter due to the Eagles game on) and from the second we walked in Joncarl made us feel at home. Our waiter Louis came and sat with us and we all had a blast joking around all night. Basically, we wish we could come here every Sunday (whether for a fabulous brunch or dinner).
Have enjoyed brunch here several times and it never disappoints! Service is friendly and prompt. Food is delicious! Coffee is the best!
Nord is such a fun and unique experience! Cozy setting, and a friendly staff. The food is authentic and delicious! You cant go wrong! Can’t wait to return.
This might be the best restaurant in Philadelphia, romantic yet lively and fun atmosphere. The owner is awesome and really understands how to treat people and make every customer feel special, and he attracts a high quality, professional staff. We had the cod (special), the amazing acorn squash entree, and of course the bitterballen. We are not dessert people, but the bread pudding description hooked us, and it was dreamy. We will be back soon.
Enjoyable meal, seated on time, staff friendly and willing to explain any dishes. The chef was out and about making sure everyone was happy. Had the rabbit leg with sauerkraut, meatballs and smorboard, all unique and flavorful. Nice to have some different things to pick from, and BYO is always great. Will definitely return, with friends.
Louis was the greatest server ever! My girlfriend and I found our new favorite spot! 11/10 would recommend this place to anyone!
This was our first time dining here and it was wonderful ! The food was delicious . We can’t wait to return to Noord.
Our favorite restaurant for authentic Dutch/Nordic cuisine in Philadelphia.
New Years Eve
Awesome spot in the city. Love this place for brunch...BYO, bold and wonderful.
Snert! Fun to say, awesome flavors!
I love everything about Noord. The amazing food, of course, which is like nothing else in this culinarily-rich city. The charming, unforced ambiance that makes it feel like a friendly neighborhood place AND a special spot for a night out. And perhaps above all, the service, which is simply the best I’ve experienced anywhere. If you’ve been lucky enough to go in on a night when Louis is there working his magic, you understand what I mean.
