Met a friend for dinner prior to the Pink concert at Capital One Arena. The location was perfect. Lots of variety on the menu but we both ordered cheeseburgers. I love a good burger and these did not disappoint. Our server was polite and efficient. I’d love to return and try a few of the swankier menu options.

You can’t get better than here. Food and service were amazing. Excellent deviled eggs, Bibb salad should be an entree. Had to take half of the pork shank given how much there was.

The manager is sublime and clearly is backed by a great team.

Great service, amazing food and perfect location across the street from the National Portrait Gallery. I had their famous chicken remoulade...incredible! My companions had the sweet pea risotto and the pork chop...both were excellent.

NoPa was fantastic, they called 24 hours in advance to see if I needed to make any changes to the reservation. They accommodated 15 if us on short notice. The service was very attentive. They have a great selection of brunch cocktails and had wonderful complimentary cinnamon rolls. My potatoes were a little burnt, but overall recommend for a lovely brunch.

This was our 2nd time here. Lovely restaurant in great location, and drinks and food are outstanding. However, this time we came with our 5 year old and couldn't help noticing there were only 1 or 2 options for him. While we were dining, there were at least 2 other tables with young children as well.

I recommend expanding the menu to include a few options for the little ones.

Return visit after a long time. As always, great and personalized service for a regular, and just love the setting with big windows looking out to the Portrait Gallery museum. STILL wish there were more lighter lunch options, like more salads.

Terrific menu (food & drink)!!! Portions for price were better than any other mid-scale to high-end D.C. restaurant. Door and wait staff were hospitable and friendly. First time dining at NOPA...I plan to add it to my regular rotation.

The sea bass was deliciously served over Carolina rice (I had just bought a bag while visiting Charleston!) and bokchoy with a great Asian-inspired sauce. My friend had the pork shank, a hearty tasty meal for a cold evening!

Our first time here and the food was very good but not a good as our waiter!!! He described every dish with such enthusiasm that I wanted them all. He also recommended excellent wines to accompany our dishes and got us out the door in time for theater down the street.

It was a wonderful dinner. The food was excellent. The only challenge we had was that our server put our entree order in too soon. We had ordered a cocktail and the food was out before we were ready.

Went for dinner, it was pretty quiet on a Friday evening. Walking distance from nearby sights. Service was ok - they forgot to serve one of our dishes until the end. Meal was average but would like to try again.

Beautiful big windows looking out over the street; hard to gauge the noise because it was a snowy day and the government was closed. Service was excellent although I would go for a lot less discussion about the food in the process of taking the order .

A great find next to our hotel (Kimpton Hotel Monaco)! We enjoyed the Chilean sea bass and short ribs. The server was very attentive and we had a great spot right by the window looking out at the National Portrait Gallery.

A pleasant surprise. The menu is Innovative and interesting but not overly long or exotic and has some classics that everyone will love. Nice selection of wines including some good by the glass and 1/2 bottle options. Attentive and Professional Service that is relaxed. The room is fancy enough for a business lunch but casual enough for romantic or friendly dining. This may be our new pre-theater spot.

All of the wait staff were personable and extraordinarily helpful, from the man at the greeting station to the busgirl. The food was interesting and tasty, with plenty of variety for a relatively short menu. The house made rolls were a huge hit with my companion who ate about six of them. I thought that the portions were a bit small on first glance, but they turned out to be just right. I will definitely return.
