NoPa Kitchen + Bar (Washington D.C.) Ratings and Reviews
nice menu with lots of options for dinner whether you want a full meal or enjoy tapas style dining. Service was attentive and the cocktails good. Some kind of party was happening nearby so maybe a little noisy but it was so cold outside I was thrilled to be seated away from the door. Would go again
Service was fantastic, and ambience perfect. The food? Well enough prepared, but for the most part it was not exciting. Appetizers were the best: Kumamoto oysters delighted. Foie grad on gingerbread with huckleberry jam was delectable. Entrees of duck, and surf and turf, were boring at best. We expected to be transported, given the pedigree. We weren’t.
New Years Eve Dinner. ‘Twas a great experience. I little disappointed with the Chilean Sea Bass, which is a signature dish. Tasty, for sure, but it really wasn’t the best I (or my companions) have had by a long shot. Everything else was super tasty and fabulous. The staff was amazing and attentive. The atmosphere fantastic.
This was a first class experience from walking up the steps through walking back down. Wait staff were attentive and knowledgable. The view across the street to the portrait museum through huge front windows evoked Paris. We had the venison carpaccio appetizer - fabulously complex and flavorful. Main dishes were the pork shank and steak. The pork shank was a unique preparation that was a true surprise and treat. The steak was done medium rare to perfection and was served on a bed of kale with fingerling potatoes. Everything was superb. We had a very nice Bordeaux from an outstanding wine list.
Give this one a tumble.
Very convenient to DC museums. Was not crowded when we stopped in for dinner. Service was very attentive and thoughtful. The sea bass entree is not to be missed--excellent! Stopped by a couple of days later for lunch and enjoyed a wonderful appetizer salad in the lounge. Again service was very good. Loved the big window views too.
The wait staff was informative, professional, and attentive. The food was outstanding. We particularly liked the fact that the ingredients were local (farm to table). The set price menu for theater goers offered a variety of options at a reasonable price (3 courses for $35). We highly recommend securing a window seat with the cushy arm chairs overlooking the portrait gallery.
We come here about once a month. The staff is courteous, the service is excellent, the food is delicious. Great place for before theatre or music event . The bar is busy; the dining rooms are spacious with just the right level of conversation. Great oysters, also try the NoPa burger , the Beef Coulotte Steak and the Ancient Grains Risotto.
Met a friend at Nopa before the Caps game. Everyone enjoyed there entrees. The portions were generous. I had the Cod, it was cooked perfectly. There is a nice sized wine list and craft cocktails. Also the "rolls" melt in your mouth. We did not have appetizers or desert. will go again
We picked NoPa because it was next door to our hotel and reservations were available. We ended up with a very nice window table and our waiter was highly personable, funny, and unpretentious. We had a really fine meal and got good recommendations on wine. The service was pretty quick. The dining rooms are small, which helps keep the noise down, and even though we heard every word said at the table next to us, it was not annoying.
This was my second time vising NoPa and it lived up to my first experience. The hostess and waiter were very professional and charming. The food came out quickly and never had to wait too long for anything. The food was cooked perfectly and the restaurants atmosphere gave off a very cozy yet sleek feel. Would recommend going for a date night or special event as you get a great value for your money. Also the size of the portions are very filling compared to other restaurants.
We enjoyed the fixed price Thanksgiving 3-course meal that was a lot of tasty fun. Recommendations from our waiter were spot on. The farm-to-table desserts were phenomenal, bread pudding with herbs de Provence and butternut squash, yes for dessert! We had a great seat overlooking the Portrait Gallery. Will come again!
Consistently good dining choice near the Capital One Center. Service is friendly and efficient. I always start with the deviled eggs, which are straight up delicious without the need for any weird ingredients. There is a good selection of Entrees that similarly seem to strive to be solid, well prepared and presented dishes. We’ve tried meat, seafood and vegetarian (a risotto), and all have hit the mark.
We did the theatre tasting menu. Everything was impeccable. The squash and pear soup added to its other ingredients at the table. It was suprising, but well done. We had Chardonnay and Pinot Noir respectively paired with our meals. Our server was perfectly attentive. (11/15/17)
We had visited NoPa 3 years ago and it was very good, but on arriving for Sunday lunch this year and sitting down it was clear it was a totally different restaurant and the menu and ambience not at all to our liking, so we gave our apologies and left. Think its important to indicate that a restaurant has changed style and level.
We tried to book a table with Fig and Olive through you but the application wouldn't let us, so we just walked up and were pleased to get a table. That was very good and to our liking.
Went with my teenaged niece for dinner before a concert. We both found items we liked on the menu and were very happy with the curry chicken meatballs, burger and short ribs. The service was terrific as we had little time to spare. My cocktail was just okay, not exactly what I expected by that was my fault. I thought it a little too strong and not as cold as I'd like. We loved the cozy, rustic, dining atmosphere and the bar area looked like fun. I would definitely go back! It's so convenient to Capital One Arena.
