Frustrating: Insisted we put money down for reservation but didn't mention that this also required price fixe for valentine's. Then said we could sit in the "lounge" instead to avoid price fixe if we wanted (which is a bar) where there were just a few stools. So sat in main restaurant. Then restaurant had gall to include $8 sides on the price fixe menu. Just cheezy. And put us at a table with maximum foot traffic and bouncy floor. Food ended up being quite good and the waiter good, but the whole thing left a bit of bad taste, so to speak.

The food was top 5. The scene was nice. Our particular table was less than ideal. The entrees were so, so good. Chilean sea bass (I know, I know) and waygu beef short ribs delivered more than the next level flavors you expect from the ingredients.

This was our 4th visit to NoPa. We just love this restaurant and think it is one of the best in DC. The food is always amazing as well as creative drinks!

Service was amazing. Our waitress was very professional and friendly. She genuinely seemed happy to help us and we were very happy to have her. Great location for date night

Great ambiance with exposed brick, large windows and tables spaced very comfortably. A member of our party was running late and the wait staff was great about not pressuring but checking in with drinks and appetizers as we waited.

Three of us shared an appetizer. Two of us thought the bread used was a mistake. We commented about that mildly -- mainly as a suggestion to the chef. Amazingly, we not charged for it.

My daughter and I ate dinner here pre-theater. Food delicious and creative. Cocktails excellent and crafted. Server named "M" wonderful. She made suggestions and explained dishes which were very good. It wasn't busy at this time of day on a weekday, so we felt pampered. Plenty of time for a full meal before the play.

I rarely eat every single thing on my plate - but the Chilean sea bass and all the accompaniments were delicious. Worth the price! Ditto my partners salmon.

We visited this restaurant on Saturday for dinner. We ordered Spicy Chicken Meatballs and Shrimp Soup. Both were delicious. Since we were three and ordered only two appetizers, they split the soup in two and served separately. For main entree we ordered Salmon on a bed of vegetables, Beef Short Rib and Seabass on a bed or rice. Colleta, our server, mentioned that it was a deconstructed Congee. Even though all three dishes were excellent, Seabass was best. The portion size was very satisfying and by the end we were full to have any dessert.

Dinner with my cousin visiting from out of town. She had the chicken; I had the sea bass. Both dishes were excellent. We shared the roasted brussel sprouts and were not disappointed. Our waiter was terrific. we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

I liked the ambiance a lot, and the location, near the Verizon center, was perfect. The food was pretty good, too.

had a delicious and imaginative shrimp salad. only problem was they must have dropped in a hot banana pepper.. way too spicy.
Tables were wonderfully spaced.. able to have good conversation. will return and tell them to skip the hot peppers...

NoPa never disappoints. Even when you're on a special 'diet cleanse' (me: The Whole30), i was able to have a tasty meal. (It was really hard to skip those comp biscuits however!)
