Noord Ratings and Reviews
House smoked fish salads piled high on toasts. Autumnal brisket stew tender with roasted red potatoes and thick, delicious carrots.freshly pickled cucumbers and delicate whole leaf lettuce with robust mustard sauce. rich and gooey bread pudding with stunning cinnamon bun / cheesecake - style icing. Soft hunk of rye bread with warm melty butter pre-meal. Intimate, but loud. Not a bad thing because it allows you to feel free to laugh and holler even tho it’s small and fancy it has the feel of a nice pub room. Aesthetically pleasing paintings of trees and roots on the walls. Fantastic location. Heaping piles of food. Unique. Will return from time to time to rediscover and revisit the menu and the chef’s incredible vision.
Each time I eat at Noord I find myself thinking how lucky Philadelphia is to have Chef Joncarl Lachman and his team at Noord in our city. Delicious Dutch, Scandinavian and Indonesian specialties, all seamlessly presented. Everything about this place, including the service, is superb.
This is a great pick for dinner. There were four of us dining and we all loved the atmosphere and food. The service was warm and friendly, attentive throughout the experience. Our only disappointment was no room for dessert, so we will return. Even more fun because it’s a BYOB. Go, it’s great!
The menu has just been expanded - not that it was necessary - so my wife and I went on a search. We were rewarded. We shared a potato au gratin with apples appetizer, I had seared scallops with caviar over sweet potatoes dressed with bacon crumble, and my wife had beef brisket with red cabbage. Each was a mouth-watering delight. Robert and Jon Carl have made this restaurant the place to be for adventurous, pleasing dining. If you haven't dined there, you are missing a delightfully satisfying meal. The service is attentive but not overbearing and the prices are reasonable.
We have been to Noord many times and we love the food, but I guess we have never been there on a Saturday night. We had to wait about 40 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Staff was very apologetic. It was also extremely noisy. I know we will return many times to Noord, but probably not on a Saturday night.
We had another amazing meal at Noord. Our server Luis was so knowledgeable, funny and attentive the meal would have been fun just based on his service. The food was delicious. The prawn appetizers left us all wanting to drink the remaining broth out of the bowl. We all had different entrees and enjoyed all of them. Noord is a unique dining experience, we highly recommend you try.
Our anniversary dinner and we arrived separately and late - Friday night traffici is terrible. The restaurant was so accommodating and understanding. Louis, our waiter is the best, he gave me a hug when I finally arrived! Fabulous and interesting twist on flavors, caraway, dill, pickled onions and peaches - yum! Everything was fresh and we loved the hot and cold combos in the same dish. Hearty baked rye is so good you have to stop so you don’t fill up before your food arrives. Sea scallop appetizer and haddock entree were fresh and different, just perfect. Definitely not just another ho-hum seafood preparation. Dine here and you won’t be disappointed. It’s BYO so if you are going to be late, make sure your date brings the wine.
My entire experience at Noord was terrific! I have been there a few times before and every experience has been delightful! The pace of dinner was relaxed , the food was incredible and our server was truly a professional. He described everything for my brother-in-law and sister who were new to the restaurant, he was friendly and nice and did not make you feel rushed at all. The meal itself was wonderful all the flavors and freshness make it an excellent stop for Foodies.
We’ve never been to Noord before and decided to go there to celebrate a birthday. From the time we arrived until we left we received a warm welcome. Food, as you can see from the menu, is a little out of the norm in a very good way. There were 3 of us dining and everyone enjoyed their meal very much: haddock, Kip Kerrie and smoked striped bass. My only caution is to ask about portion size. We failed to do so and had more food than we normally eat. Great evening all around. Eager to return again.
Exceptional dining experience from start to finish. The service was outstanding; our waiter was friendly and helpful. The food was like nothing else in the city. Truly delicious. Fresh salmon stunned. The lemon curd desert, though decadent, did not disappoint. Highly recommend this spot.
What a fun experience! Our waiter was terrific and helpful, and the food was outstanding. We ordered 4 different apps and 4 different entrees, passed our plates, and tried them all. They were all delicious and very creative. Take a good bottle of Riesling and go by all means.
Noord was good in every regard -- consistently positive. A place doesn't have to be great, so we were fairly pleased. Cuisine is different, which was a positive for us. A Thursday night, the room was never filled, and the atmosphere was quiet and allowed for good conversation.
From the moment the rustic rye bread hit the table, still warm from the grill, we knew we were about to experience an extraordinary dinner. Leaving our comfort zones, we discovered the joys of a rare menu found in Philadelphia, which included goat cheese custard, sauteed squash with citrus butter jasmine rice, tender mussels bathed in an herb broth, and a vinegar-braised rabbit leg. The dishes were fresh and hearty, delivered to the table by a friendly and attentive staff. All around, this is a gem of a restaurant and deserves all the acclaim it receives.
We tend to frequent this place in the fall and winter. The food, service and ambience are all A+. The rabbit, which is in an external struggle with Kanella, for the best in the city is always a great bet. The mussels and salmon are always a hit. Louis always takes great care of us. The cuisine is great, different and only for those that will appreciate the totality of the experience.
