We have been dining here occasionally for the last 6 years and have never had a disappointing experience. Always something interesting on the menu that you have never tried, and all entrees are of high quality and taste. Terrific wait staff and great bread.

This is one of our top 3 favorite places in Philly! Amazingly unique menu, BYOB, wonderful owners, attentive staff, and great vibe. This was our first time going to a Sunday brunch here and we loved it! All the windows were open giving that indoor-outdoor vibe and allowing in the fresh air on a sunny 70 degree day. The virgin Bloody Mary's were amazing and we were obsessed with the Keshi Yena. It took us forever to decide what to try and we can't wait to do it again soon!

This place is INCREDIBLE. Like food alone is amazing, get one of the hash dishes!, but they made us feel like the most important people in the restaurant. Flawless service, so friendly. Really robust brunch menu and I love the byob policy. Great outdoor seating. Honestly my new favorite brunch place in Philly. I already have another reservation booked!!

One of my very favorite restaurants in Philly. I've been many times, recommended it to many friends, and look forward to many more occasions to go. Love the food, the atmosphere, and have always had excellent service. The butter cake is one of the greatest things in the world. (We can almost never pull off sharing it--everyone wants their own!)

Hits the mark in every category. In from Jersey for concert and overnite stay. Have been to Philly many times but never ate in Passyunk district. So I took my Dutch wife here for our first time after reading great reviews all over and it lived up to the billing.
We both loved it. Great amazing food, generous portions, super friendly and attentive wait staff and co owner came over several times to make sure all was good. The food is very different but the presentation and taste are incredible. I wanted everything on the menu and will absolutely be back for more. BYO is nice plus. No kidding here, this was one of the best food experiences I have ever had.

Went to brunch there with a group of friends for my birthday and absolutely had the best time. The food was excellent and the staff was pleasant. BYOB so we crafted our own mimosas with help of their orange juice carafes.

There was something on the menu for everyone. By far one of the best places for brunch in Philadelphia. Book early!

Excellent place that I would definitely recommend. My husband and I had three different dishes to share. 1- The Gravlax, which was a smoked salmon with beets and watermelon grind; 2- Smorrebrod had three different smoked fish (smoked cod...etc) with bread and greens and 3- their cod special for the night which we replaced the fried potatoes for salad. The special dish came in a pot with cod and some kind of white cream....very delicious and on the side was the salad. Out of the three, I would go back for the Smorrebrod and the cod entree for sure. We also had their decaf coffee which was a French press. That was nothing special. The service was great too and we didn't have to wait for very long to be served. It is also a BYOB. It was a very pleasant evening and I am glad we gave it a try!

We went for restaurant week, having wanted to try this restaurant for some time. We were expecting a sort of buttoned down Scandinavian experience, but were pleased to find a warm and inviting atmosphere. We were greeted by a large hunk of charred fennel bread with compound butter. Then went on to a Brussels sprouts first course—a generous serving with carrots and golden raisins and spices, on a bed of seasoned creme fraiche. Next, on to a delicious cod dish served in a small enamel skillet—perfectly seasoned with creme and cheese, accompanied by smashed potato, deep fried, and then whisked with grainy mustard with horseradish. We also ordered the vegetarian entree, which was a delicious, large dish with acorn squash, various veggies, and goat cheese. Pear/cranberry bread pudding for dessert. So much amazing food! A great value.

We took my Mom for dinner during East Passyunk restaurant week and we had a fabulous time! You cannot beat the personal service at Noord, and the food is to die for. Even though it was restaurant week, the food was still as delicious as it is during the rest of the year. I can not recommend Noord enough and I can not wait for Joncarl’s next restaurant to open up!

Recently celebrated our friend's engagement here - they come here every East Passyunk restaurant week, so we came along this year. Biggest takeaway was that everyone at Noord treats their customers like family. Countless times we saw the chefs and servers go out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable and special. Our server, Tom, was hands down the best server we've ever had - he really made us feel loved, treated us like royalty, and had us laughing the whole night. The food was one of the best in the city and the atmosphere is intimate. Everything was firing on all cylinders and we will definitely be back many times! Thank you Noord for such a great experience!
