Always a fan and Nordic never fails to deliver good food with wonderful service. Have never been here for Brunch and will be certain to return. There were so many appetizing choices offered.

Noord was a great way to start my weekend in Philly. Everyone was super helpful and sweet. The food was amazing, I can’t stop thinking about it and wish I could have it sent up to New York!

THIS IS THE BEST RESTAURANT IN PHILLY. I 100% RECOMMEND. PERFECT FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION, DATE NIGHT, OR DINNER WITH FRIENDS. THE CREATIVE DISHES, PREPARATION, AND SERVICE FROM BEGINNING TO END ARE UNMATCHED! IT WILL BE MY GO-TO FOR SURE.

Noord continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in town. Their daily fish special is always superb. The staff really take pride in their restaurant, and it shows in the service. Herring sliders are a ‘must order’. Great value too, especially since it is BYOB. Love Jon Carl, and Noord.

We visited Noord on a Thursday night in August. Though not at capacity, there were several other diners. The wait staff is superb, with two people handling the room of about 15 tables. Our waiter, Louis, was very attentive, helping us make our menu selections. He suggested rabbit for me, and this was the first time that I had had rabbit. It was excellent. My wife had the cod, which she also loved. Appetizers were unusual, but in a very good way. No rushing, just the right amount of attention, and lots of smiles. We would visit again in a heartbeat.

Noord is quite lovely. We shared some appetizers and dessert, but each enjoyed our own entrees. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious! I really enjoyed the mix of acid and savory in my fish dish. I look forward to returning!

We had a wonderful experience at this neighborhood restaurant. The food was phenomenal and creative to hit every sense in your mouth. Everyone at the restaurant made the experience great : Jonathon, Louis, and Nate . The special bread was to die for. Along with the special fun with the dough our son played with while trying all delectable foods . 👐🏼

A single large dining room with plenty of windows. Staff that is knowledgeable, considerate, outgoing and good-humored. Food is luscious and fresh, and never trite or commonplace. In many ways, Noord makes you think you are in another universe or dimension, and you find it very much to your taste.

Overall it was a great experience. We had the open sandwich platter as an appetizer and it was the top dish of the night. My girlfriend had the dumplings which were tasty but quite dense and heavy. I had a special, the softshell crab, which was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We reserved our table but it wasn’t ready for us so they asked us to wait at the bar next door. Twenty minutes later, a lady came to pick us up with an umbrella handy. What great service! We also got a complimentary appetizer to make up for the delay. The food itself was delicious – and I would definitely recommend for a special night out.

Excellent service. The combination of flavors was delicious but something I would never think of e.g. mussels and short ribs. The cod special was delightful. Don't forget to bring your own wine.

Noord never disappoints. My husband and I eat at Noord almost exclusively when they have one of their soft shell crab dishes on special. These crabs are always cooked absolutely perfectly, and, if that is not enough, the dish on which the crabs are included makes it even better! Watermelon with fried soft shell crab doesn't sound great to me, but it is one of my top five favorite dishes ever, and I am a seafood lover from South Louisiana, so maybe that means something. Waitstaff is perfect, as well. There is literally nothing to complain about regarding this restaurant; I am just lucky that I love close enough to be able to eat there as much as I want!

best service I've ever experienced since the original Le Bec Fin. That service was only as good as it was because of George's tyrannical modus with his wait staff, at least as the rumor would have it and our own experience. This interface was far more gemuitlich. Beyond that the food was excellent

Met up with a few girlfriends for an amazing dinner at Noord! The Chef/owner, Joncarl, always the most gracious host! Food was outstanding! Chicken liver mousse, head on prawns and mussels with pork Condit and delicious broth, great for dipping the yummy bread! All of us the soft shell crabs entree special. So good!
Great evening with close friends all enjoying a fabulous dinner!

Excellent, creative cuisine completely ruined by a table of extremely raucous women, apparently known to the owner, who were working their way through a number of bottles of wine. We literally could not hear each other over their volume and left without dessert. Previous visits were lovely.
