We went for restaurant week and enjoyed the full meal, minus the smoked apple dessert. The bread pudding was especially delicious. Reminder that it is BYOB.

One of the best brunches I’ve had so far in Philly! Wonderful, welcoming servers and outstanding food. Highly recommend the French toast and also the brisket hash.

Wonderful European feel and food! A gem of a place!
BUT, I have to say THERE IS NO VALET PARKING ON WEEKENDS as stated in the listing.

NOORD never disappoints...this was the first time we'd been for Brunch, and it was just delicious...again, so many unique flavors and combinations of foods. I cannot get enough of the grilled bread...also, many selections for vegetarians, like me. Obviously "THE place to be" on a Sunday...the place was quite full, at 12 noon. Servers are all so friendly and helpful. I hope to be able to come back, again and again.

Had dinner at Noord last night. It’s a wonderful Dutch restaurant at 11th and Tasker. Their food and service are tops. Small place, but not tight, as tables are well spaced. We had Mustard Soup with Scallop and the Smoked Cod appetizers. For main courses, we had the rabbit leg and the salmon. Both were well prepared and had uniquely delicious flavors. Their homemade bread goes perfectly with their food. Great for dipping. The restaurant is byob and less than a block from East Passyunk Ave and all the fun spots there.

Geweldig om middenin Philadelphia in een ‘Nederlands’ restaurant te eten. Heerlijk eten, goeie sfeer en heel fijn personeel.

Noord is so unique and delicious. I’ve never had a bad meal here!! The staff is excellent too. The bread is always amazing. This time we had the salmon and the meatballs. The restaurant was mostly full and it still wasn’t too loud which was very nice.

We stopped by on a random Wednesday night in the middle of February. Our server was Robert who, at our request, gave us very thoughtful suggestions about 1) where to find a bottle of wine nearby before we sat done and 2) suggestions to consider for appetizers and mains. Great suggestions, delicious food, and a fun time. Glad we went.

Excellent service and delicious entres. Our main course was slightly delayed out of the kitchen, which was not an issue. We didn’t have a single complaint, yet the staff was still aware and apologetic, even comping us a free appetizer and dessert.

Never had so much fun, with so much great food, at any restaurant before! The food is impeccable, and so very unique...DO have the Smorrebord...it's something to write home about, which I told the waiter and the chefs. The waiter could not have been any nicer, any more fun, any more knowledgeable...he is incredible. Wish I'd gotten his name!!! The chefs - there are only two of them, and the amount of fabulous food they put out was phenomenal - are world class, by me, and by my whole party - we were 4, on a Sunday night. The ambiance is lovely - low-key, simple, casual, gives you a great vibe. We will definitely return...they do Brunch, and I can't wait to experience that. Thanks, NOORD, for a fabulous evening out.

A friendly and casual yet elegant place, with outstanding food. It's one of Philadelphia's gems. It's great to have the owner come and chat to you. Try the prawns starter, which is simply divine.

Of the two servers we interacted with, one seemed very irritated to be serving us (did not act the same way toward the table next to us) and the other was very condescending towards other staff. Made for a very uncomfortable experience. On the plus side, the chef was wonderful and the bread was extraordinarily good.

Note, it was a Wed night that wasn't very crowded. Given the size of the restaurant, the noise level will likely increase with more of a crowd. The food is great though! Listen to your servers recommendations!!

This was our second time at Noord. The first time several months ago we had a fabulous experience and loved everything. This time it was good, but less so than the last time. The main difference was that the seasonal menu had changed and we were specifically returning for the delicious grilled fish that we had on our previous visit. This time the fish options included a salmon chowder, whole smoked trout (including skin and bones) and battered & fried fish. Our party of 4 had one of each of these, but we would have preferred 1-2 more grilled fish fillet options.

I was new to a Dutch menu of entrees, and so I used the description on the menu to help me select my meal. I settled on "Lekkerbekjes" on Snert ...crispy beer-battered white fish, ravigote sauce, split peas, bacon, sausage, malt vinegar aioli. It was really delicious. We tried two desserts, the almond cake and the bread pudding. Both excellent. This restaurant is small, so I wouldn't recommend going with a group larger than four people. But certainly, it was a winner!

Some of the absolute BEST food i have ever had!!! LOVED it!!! This is a small local establishment where they clearly take a lot of time creating the perfect meal in the most appetizing presentation. I had the shank. My friend had the salmon. Both were tender and succulent. Perfectly prepared! Excellent service too. The only downside is the total absence of parking. Drove around at least 30 minutes looking for somewhere to park. But still worth it. Definitely going back. Only next time I will take an Uber.

Food and service is absolutely delicious and their passion for the food experience comes through. The space and staff are so welcoming and enjoyable we feel like we're sharing a meal with friends. Wish we lived a bit closer because we'd be regulars.

While not haute cuisine, this is comfort food in my book. Everything is so delicious! And I hope you like bread, because the homemade bread served with the meal could be the best you'll ever have.
