We have been dining at Nopa for the last 5 years on the same date. This year I decided to do something different and propose to my girlfriend. The entire staff were in on the plan and they played their parts extremely well. Dinner, ambiance, service were outstanding as always. Thank you sarah, stephanie, and Tina. Thank you Nopa!

Waited 10 minutes seated at our table before having water on our table. Continuous lack of attention by our server. We wish we had the other server that was waiting on the table next to us - at least she was even more attentive than our own.

I’m so thankful Nopa has outside seating. A friend and I sat at a table for two under heat lamps (our host was accommodating when I indicated not feeling comfortable being scrunched in with other outside diners. Our server, Antonio, was wonderful and had great recommendations - (tomatoes with whipped feta a must try along with the Moroccan fried chicken). Food and service were great.

We enjoyed an excellent dinner with superior service, which is particularly hard to come by right now. We had not eaten at NOPA in a number of years, and we were totally satisfied. That's rare these days with high prices and spotty service. Even though we didn't find a dessert that we wanted to order, they brought a scoop of sorbet for my husband's birthday. All around an awesome evening!

We sat outside on a cold night and felt toasty under the heat lamps and protected parklet booths. Menu is seasonable with many veg friendly options and a well curated wine list. Food portions were generous, for SF standards, and each dish (we indulged with many) was superbly presented and prepared. Delicious is an understatement. We just moved to the neighborhood and found our favorite restaurant. Eat indoors or outdoors, whenever you can secure a table...do it!

Can’t wait to return! The food, service and ambiance were wonderful. We chose outdoor dining, as our kiddo was with us and it’s the most comfortable outdoor seating we’ve had. The staff was so attentive and the food, simply delicious. Worth every penny!

Since the last time I came here, about 5 years ago, the pork chop was what I was looking forward to having. Unfortunately, the chops have falling off a bit as I remembered it to be more moist and juicy then this time around. Other than that...everything else is on point...heirloom tomato salad, shishito peppers, to their flatbread was all wonderful.

Our reservation was at 7:45 but it was 8:30 when we were able to sit. And our main course arrived at 9:30, which is quite late. Other than being slow , food & ambiance was great. Our waitress even changed the wine because she thought something is off about its taste. I appreciate it.

This restaurant is always delicious. Pre pandemic, inside dining was great. I ate outside this time and the service and food were great. The noise of Divisadero however, was another thing. Not sure I want to spend that much to listen to Harleys going by.
I rated low on ambience and noise, but everything else was as nice as always.

NoPa alllwaayyys slaps so hard. I bought a date here for some of my favorite dishes in sf and it did not let me down. Fried little fishies with shishito peppers, smoked tomato Cesar salad and the grilled pork chop were all flawless. Also if you go and they have the Concord grape sorbetto get it!!! Their wine director RNK is a super delightful person to geek out on wine with too. Thanks to all the staff for a great date night.

We had a reservation right when they opened and there was a slight delay getting in and then a longer delay waiting for service. After that, the service was really great!

Everything we ate was delicious! The fried chicken was absolutely amazing.

Highly recommend!

NOPA is one of our go-to restaurants in SF, that we always have a fantastic meal. Recommend the burger, one of the best around, and oddly there's usually a bolognaise sauce pasta on the menu - we ask for it to be made vegetarian and the chef' does an amazing no meat version. To start we really enjoy the smoked trout on grilled toast.
