Wonderful service with well prepared dishes. The ambience is great for a quiet and relaxing meal.
NoPa has become one of my favorite places to eat, for the combination of really friendly, great service, location, price, and a menu that is reliably excellent -- reliable even though it is a changing and interesting assortment of appetizers, mains, and desserts. The mussel pot with lobster and chorizo was incredible; the skin on the salmon was amazing; wine recommendations were perfect. No room for dessert!
I’ve lived in DC for 6 years and always seen but never tried NoPa. I was very impressed. The flavors were unique and the combinations of meat, vegetable, and sauce were interesting and flavorful. Service was attentive and comfortable vibe.
We were early for our reservation. Menus and wine lists could be update as they were well used. Drinks were as ordered and nicely done. Shared the deviled eggs - very good. Had the Salmon and steak and pom frites. cooked perfectly. Nice dinner. Paced nicely. Would go back.
The lunch menu was good, but the real standout was the dessert.
The dessert was the star of the menu, my wife and I loved the poached peaches with peach ice cream.
Well-executed food, delivered by friendly and helpful servers. A strong wine list, and good selection of cocktails. The salmon, steak frites and cauliflower with hummous dinners were all expertly done, and the cookie plate was an easy-to-share dessert for four. Beware the sage buns: they're flaky, but quite filling.
Service was absolutely wonderful, and our group had the best time. Servers did a great job of not making our party feel rushed. Food and drinks were absolutely delicious, and such a great atmosphere!
Went to NoPa to celebrate my wife’s retirement along with two of our sons and their wives. Chose this spot because the menu addressed our needs to serve two vegetarians, a pescatarian and three omnivores. From drinks through our vast array of entrees, NoPa did not disappoint. Even our assortment of cookies and chocolate cake deserts were memorable.
First time. Pre-theater dinner. A hit it was great.
Stumbled upon Nopa while searching for a restaurant within a block from Sidney Harmon Hall for a pre-theatre meal. So very happy to have had the opportunity to dine here. Wonderful environment, great service and delicious food options. I look forward to coming again and will most definitely recommend to friends.
What a fantastic restaurant in DC! I've lived in the region for 15 years and dined at the best reviewed places, and this is one of my very favorites. The food is fantastic -- lots of local ingredients, all fresh, with really creative combinations alongside established favorites. They are especially great at incorporating one notable spice in a new way in a dish you normally don't associate with it -- and the results are simultaneously recognizable and surprising. The decor is great -- classic steakhouse combined with art nouveau -- and the big window in the front faces the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery, so you get some classic DC views as well. Prices are really reasonable for the quality of the food too, so it's a win-win-win.
This restaurant is near the International Spy Museum. We had a nice dinner there. I had a steak and my son had the pork special. We really enjoyed their cheese plate appetizer. The service was outstanding! I would go there again.
I liked the ambiance, the service was great, and most importantly the food was delice!
Exceeded expectations. We went for an early, pre-theatre dinner, so the place was quiet--fortunately, since we had my 90-year old mother with us. Terrific location, with easy Metro access, easy (if expensive) parking, and proximate to theaters, sports, museums, and the Mall. Food was excellent. We had oysters, the short rib cassoulet and the black cod. Both are apparently their 'signature' dishes, and it's easy to see why. Really creative preparation with delicious results. Lemon tart for dessert was a fitting conclusion. We really enjoyed NoPa and would definitely return.
Food was great.
Unexpectedly very very good. One of the better meal experiences we've had in quite a while... we'll definitely be back soon.
Overall good but not exceptional. However, I would return.
Exceptional service and outstanding food...
I loved the whole night i love this restaurant
We had a great quick meal and drinks before the Caps Game 4 Victory.
Fantastic service, wonderful dinner. We will be back!
Had a great table near the window and the service was fine. Would liket to have had a few more choices on the menu.
The service was prompt, curteous and timely. Our server was knowledgeable a personable! The atmosphere was relaxing, the food was very good and just the right portion size
Not too extensive a menu but good food and great service!
You must give NoPa a try! This restaurant was more delicious than I expected for a Wednesday night out with the girls. Our meal started with a basket of warm herb biscuits that were out of this world. I could have stopped eating right then, but I’m glad I didn’t. There were 2 outstanding dishes. The first was the crispy Brussels sprouts in a secret sauce. It was the perfect bite of sweet, salty and crunchy. Another table favorite was the cured sea bass served with Asian vegetables in a light sauce. It was memorable. And, lastly but certainly not least, our service was friendly and timely. Our waiters had smiles and actually seemed to enjoy working at NoPa. This is a gem of a restaurant. Don’t miss out.
Waiter was great, patient and polite. He provided great recommendations and I went with his recommendation for the sea bass. Food was delicious as well. Noise level was high as there was a group of young men being very loud. Overall great food and service, strongly recommend this place.
Went for Sunday happy hour before the theater. Wonderful experience! Food and drink very good and well priced. The pea soup was very enjoyable. My friend was very happy with his dozen oysters at a Dollar a piece, and I liked my salmon croquettes. His beer and my wine (a decent Sauv Blanc for $5 a glass) were good, too. Definitely a keeper!
Enjoyable evening - nice atmosphere complimented by great food and service
Food and service were amazing! Will definitely be back soon
The restaurant was attractive and we were happy to have a table quiet
enough so that we could talk. The food was good but not great--entrees were
ambitious but my beef short rib was not quite as juicy and flavorful as I'd expected,
given the price. We had a pleasant meal and made it to the theater on time.
Reasonably priced & a good selection of different entrees; nice wine selection; actually read my request for a round table & were able to accommodate us, even adding one more seat to our reservation.
Dinner was ok. We ate at the bar and the bartender (who was not busy) seemed more interested in interacting with other staff. We had multiple drinks and had to ask for each one of them. Not bad just not great. Better options right around the corner in DC.
We had reservations at the restaurant but upon arrival saw a nice table by the window in the bar. As it happens the happy hour discount was still in effect. We tried exotic drinks and wonderful snacks. The waiter from Seattle was helpful and fun. In short we had a thoroughly wonderful experience
Mother’s Day brunch
I’ve probably eaten at this restaurant a half dozen times and this is my first time writing a review. For the most part I wanted to keep this place to myself. It’s never overcrowded, but it is always incredible. It is one of the many restaurants connected to the famed Rasiika and I would dare to say it is just as good. This is by far my favorite restaurant. I’m a pescatarian and they always have wonderful fish options. I would recommend this place to anyone.
The seabass was amazing, and the chicken remoulade was quite good. Didn't like the olive oil cake much (too dry), should have gone with the recommendation from the server. The wine list is very very good.
One of our favorites in Penn Quarter. This time our waiter, although personable, was not the most attentive. He never informed us of specials, did not come over to take our order, and seemed a bit distracted. All was well however and we managed to enjoy excellent salmon with perfectly cooked vegetable sides. Great table with nice view of all the street activity. Tables a bit too close for my liking but still quiet and easy to converse. Will certainly return!
Splendid food. Roasted cauliflower, pasta with pea pesto and ramps, fried apricot pie: each with interesting and unexpected tastes, emerging in a subtle sequence with each bite.
