    Sat at the chefs table. Lots of action, lots of great food. Service was tremendous also. It’s a hopping, moving environment.

    Food overall was great, but the burger and morrocan chicken felt too "simple" for the pricepoint. Overall a great restuarnat. The mushroom toast, salmon latkes, pasta dish (not mine, dont recall), and pork were all fantastic. Outside of that we had an issue where it took over an hour to get our entrees. Not sure if they were short staffed or if there was a kitchen issue. They never said why it took so long.

    Took my fiancée to a nice dinner for her birthday. Unfortunately, the food was bland, pricey, and took forever to come to our table. Not worth the price and wait.

    Our meal was outstanding; it changes seasonally. The pork chop is a staple there and it was delicious. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the cocktails, wine list and each item on their menu. The was no pressure to each order an entree. We choose multiple smaller plates and one entree, which was perfect. Our courses were well paced. Glad we were seated upstairs, slightly quieter.

    Been going there since the begin. Their chef Laurence is amazing and the night we went was his sous chef that I know was there. Unfortunately it was a night off. Waited close to 1hr for food and my rare burger (their specialty) came well done. Would have sent back but such a long wait already. Really disappointed

    Well... I have been coming to Nopa for Years. I will not be coming back. The meal was underwhelming. The Burger was over cooked and cold. The Nopa Staples like Bolognese & Pork Chop Missed the mark!?!?! The service was the biggest reason I am writing The Entrees took over a hour the appetizers were cleared. We ordered the entrees when appetizers ordered.

    We’ve been to Nopa every 18th of October (minus Covid year) to celebrate our anniversary. I even proposed to my wife in their dining room! The food, drinks, ambiance, and staff are outstanding as always. If you’re looking for a place that feels like a warm hug, Nopa is the only answer.

    This was our first time dining at Nopa (we’re visiting from Indiana) food was terrific (as good of a pork chop as I’ve had anywhere). Appetizers were excellent and creative. Waitress Margot was attentive and made sure that we were well taken care of.

    Delicious Valentine Dinner at NOPA. I have been wanting to eat here for years. They started taking reservations. We waited on the street for the restaurant to open, which it did promptly at 5:30. Almost felt like a TV episode of the Bear opening Our cocktails were EXCELLENT. I had the Zephyr. My wife had the Red Eye. Our waiter, Rico, was outstanding and guided us through our cocktail, food and wine choices. Note the menu changes regularly, but the night we were there my wife had the bolognese and pappardelle, and I had two starters - the brussel sprouts in balsamic with pomegranate, and the outstanding short rib agnolotti. I wanted to lick the plate. The wine list was largely not California wines, consequently the recommendation from our waiter was welcomed as a pairing that met my tastes. Big and berry Syrah. No room for dessert. But we will be back. Would love to try brunch.

    Moved from Brooklyn and based on numerous recommendations from clients and friends booked a dinner for my Son’s birthday. I lost my brand new purse and Tula managed to find it. For dinner we had the brisket tajine hamburger goat cheese crostini and salad. Everything was delicious and my Son said it was amazing. For dessert we had the key lime tart, cookies malted ice cream sorbet and coffee. The best dessert in SF hands down. Felix was our excellent server. He was so helpful patient knowledgeable and attentive. Cannot wait to go back soon.

    Nopa used to be the hot spot and now it’s NOT. Will never be going back. Last 2 times really disappointed in food quality and flavor. They are slinging burgers back there like McD and I think a burger at McD is better! Way overpriced for quality and portions. It’s sad because SF needs good restaurants to keep the locals eating out.

    The mushroom toast, porkchop and fries are amazing. Definitely best (or one of the best) porkchops of all time. Fries use Kennebec potatoes, so they have that really nice flavor similar to in n out, but more substance and better crisp.

    Great table they gave us due to my hearing impairment. Our waitress was adorable and incredibly professional! The pork chop, rotisserie chicken and veg terreine were excellent as were the fries, bread pudding, apple tartine, and cookies! A great room, great friends, great cocktails, great evening! NOPA is a very special place and a SF landmark!

    First, the service last night was top notch. My girlfriend was a bit of a PITA in that she didn’t know we were sitting outside so gave the hostess a hard time but hostess so thoughtful and professional. Sat is outside. Even though chilly perfect heating lamps and gave us warm blankets. Ordered Brussels (solid, delish and crispy), burger (OMG hands down one of best!), bolognese (recommended by server and did not disappoint) and lamb (I’m not a lamb fan but was told it was perfect). Oh, and the bread putting was lovely. Perfect finish. Wonderful place.

    A group of 5 of us went to celebrate a birthday. We wanted to eat family style as much as possible and there are some food allergies, vegetarians, meat eaters etc. Our server Rachel was fantastic at helping us create a big family style meal that worked for everyone. The food was delicious! and to top it off the sommelier was a superstar ( I forget her name) but she was fantastic. We had a somewhat tight budget for the wine in order to make the overall meal cost work for everyone and she recommended the perfect sparkling wine for our group. Everyone loved it and it was the perfect cherry on top for the meal. It was a wonderful night and a perfect place to celebrate.
