Our server’s personality was very lackluster, however, the food made up for it. the bread they start you out with is absolutely fabulous, the prawns are perfection & in the most flavorful, delicious broth.. bitterballen were tasty and my husband & I were pleased with our mains. BYO is a huge plus, prices are very reasonable and it was a nice little ambiance. Would definitely return.

My husband and I had the best time at our first visit to Noord tonight. Our server Luis was so friendly, thoughtful, helpful, and fun! The bread with special butter was divine! Appetizer and both meals were so good we couldn’t stop savoring it. We will not forget the dessert platter specially designed to us as a surprise. Definitely and absolutely coming back. We love it!!

Absolutely delicious meal, with some really interesting things on the menu. My gnocchi was terrific, and my husband's duck was so good he's still talking about it a couple days later. Our server, Louis, really made the meal special (we had some out of town guests), and we can't wait to come back.

Noord is our go to restaurant for special occasions. Friendly service but always on point. JonCarl is the ultimate host. This is not a small plates experience. You will enjoy gourmet Dutch comfort food in large portions. Unique in Philadelphia. Go hungry; leave blissfully happy. Do not miss the mussels app.

The food here was soooooo good! Absolutely worth the visit. The bread is amazing. Asparagus appetizer, chicken thighs entree and almond butter cake dessert were excellent! Service was great and love that it is a byob. Also, there is a parking lot close by that costs about $3 for 3 hours. Will definitely be back!

We waited over an hour for our main courses after we sat down. No wait staff communicated with us or apologized to us for the delay. I was about to walk out when the food finally arrived.

I did not enjoy my experience here at all, and the food was mediocre at best.

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!
