    We had a group of 8 with a combination of meat eaters and vegetarians. The menu afforded us a great variety of dishes. The fried chicken and the papardelle pasta were some of the favorites. We ordered too much to list it all here. Some savory cocktails and 2 outstanding bottles of wine were not unappreciated. Would definitely go back…oh, and we ate outside in mid 40’s weather and were fine!!

    Overall great food. Service was good, but the time between appetizers and the main course took a little longer than desired. I ate outside, but not too cold.

    Pretty disappointed, but waiter sweet so that was a perk! Fried chicken very over cooked (burned spots) and dry. Goat cheese app was honestly too “goaty” (and I LOVE goal cheese) and the crostini’s weren’t good at all. Butter lettuce salad was a hit and butter beans very good, but even the drinks were just ok. The drink of the eve (charity) was not good at all. So, loud and vibrant - food overrated, so I can’t recommend it. Other things on menu were probably better. Oh well.

    We ate out on the parklet and it was very comfortable with their overhead heating and an extra sweater. Service was great and the food was indeed outstanding. We truly appreciate the quality and the care that goes into the food which also makes it a great value.

    We hadn't been to Nopa in a very long time, so it was almost as it were a new experience. Our server was outstanding in recommending items on the menu, including which ones paired well, as well as whether or not something might have been too much or just enough. Our two small plates and one large plate were all fantastic and definitely not as filling as expected, which enabled us to enjoy a dessert. Even with drinks and a dessert, the bill wasn't as high as expected; definitely worth the visit. We definitely plan on returning, albeit in a significantly shorter timeframe than before. Added bonus - found a parking spot a block away. Always nice.

    We had a wonderful evening with friends. We live out of town. Our waitress and sommelier were fabulous. The entire staff work very hard to get you seated on time. We had the honey fried chicken and side of sweet potatoes. Bottle of white wine. Noise level is loud. Overall very enjoyable.

    The ambience made this place incredible. The service was also top notch. I came here with my long distant boyfriend and we wanted a vibe where we didn't feel rushed and could take our time. We ended up being there for over 3 hours, talking to the wine specialist (yes they do indeed have this) and enjoying the night. The duck liver was to die for and the wine selection they have is top notch as well.

    I think the burger has changed significantly. It used to be the best and now the burger patty is almost rubbery like a sausage ball. The chicken is good, but I'd rather pay 27 bucks for 2 pieces and an interesting seasonal side instead of half a bird and nothing else. Fries are still excellent. Our waitress was excellent and friendly. Oh! She suggested the bruschetta and that was probably the best thing we had all night.

    Food is as amazing as everyone talks about, we had the pork chop and the famous burger, along with the bread. We paired this with a rose', the sommelier was so detailed in his description of it's origin and characteristics. Burger was cooked to so well, it's simple ingredients were cooked to perfection. The pork chop was the same, such a good quality cut. Our server was super lovely, great energy and knowledge of the menu, she had great banter too which added to our experience. Our bill came to about $150 + tip, which is super reasonable in my opinion. The only very minor downside was we had a booking and were left standing unattended for a time while the maitre'd was on the phone, understanding she was busy and it is very minor but it would have been nice to be acknowledged. Overall an incredible experience!

    Food was amazing but we had a reservation at 8 pm (already a late reservation with our 10 yr old son with us). They didn’t seat us til 8:20 and then it took a long time for someone to take our order. We didn’t get out of there until 10 pm. Service was not very attentive. Food made up for it, but would not recommend taking kids. Our son is a foodie like us, so he enjoyed food, but again, it took way too long. Also, everything was very expensive. Typical for SF fine dining, but wouldn’t say the atmosphere was in the fine dining category.

    Were sat in a small, crowded upstairs area, rather than downstairs which had a much better ambience. We got a cocktail each and 2 appetizers and were full, but when we asked for the bill, the waitress seemed passive aggressive that we weren't ordering mains (and spending more money). Disappointing since we heard such great things about this place, but we found it overrated, especially given the prices.
