Excellent experience from the service to the food and drink. A little loud as the space itself isn’t so big, but it was incredibly enjoyable nonetheless

Nopa was a solid restaurant but overhyped. I went there for brunch and must have had expectations that were far too high! The food was pretty good - something I could have cooked myself. The service and ambiance were very fun. Maybe it's better for dinner but brunch was pretty overrated.

Brunch was decent, certainly not the caliber I’m used to at NOPA for dinner.

We made a reservation but got there a little early and ended up sitting at the bar to wait for our table. The bar staff were so friendly and cool that we decided to just have dinner there.
The food was beyond amazing and we can’t wait to go back as soon as possible! We shared the Warm Goat Cheese and Blackberries app, I had the steak and vegetables while she had the pasta bolognese and we split the sourdough fritters for desert. 10/10 on all fronts.

Classy and hip yet comfy joint with plenty of buzz. Loved the bar where you could eat or have a drink before table was ready. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would definitely recommend it. Great service too.

There were 4 of us and we've been numerous times before and the food is always great. The service very good. My only complaint was that the cocktail I ordered was very short...oddly so. For the prices, they shouldn't be stingy - error perhaps? Don't know. But we do like the restaurant and will go back. One other minor thing - the place is hopping noisy, which is fine -- but they were playing some kind of background music and the only thing you could hear was a loud thumping bass which wasn't great - detracted from the fun ambiance. Was probably a fleeting choice of music - but who needs music when it is so loud to begin with.

There was a curly blonde hair in my food from the curly blonde hair waiter. He was very nice but I just pushed it to the side as I didn’t want to embarrass him or myself on my date.:( sucked. You guys should consider pulling hair back.

We had the custard french toast, a single to share, and it was perfect. I had the soft scrambled egg plate which had lovely flavors an my husband had the sausage that we both really enjoyed as well. The bloody Mary with mezcal had a nice kick to it!

Nopa has been one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco for the past few years, and after this last visit it still continues to be. The service is always excellent, and the food never disappoints. It's also a great late night dinner option, which is what we did this time. I always order the pork chop because they know how to do it right!

We had brunch on a Saturday. Server had no personality. We were getting dropped on from AC unit. When we mention it to the server he looked at us as to say what do you want me to do. Final they moved us and we got a server with personality. She made our experience better. Food was good not great. Parking is a problem.

unfortunately we were sat next to a couple who appeared to be regulars where the woman had sooo much perfume on it negatively impacted our experience including altering the food flavors. Not fault of restaurant but the restaurant could’ve asked her to not eat there that night.

We were lucky to get a table within an hour of our driving by the restaurant. The service was very good, courteous, helpful and efficient. The food was very tasty and better than we expected. The only thing is the noise level is very high and conversation can be difficult.

Fun cocktails & good food. Friendly staff. However we sat for 1 hour waiting for our dinners. Server had said it may be a bit longer when we ordered but people sat after us received their food & no explanation to our table. Interesting place but not worth waiting an hour for dinner to be served.

My fault that I was expecting the dinner menu and reserved for brunch. Although you can tell they use really great ingredients I just thought it was mediocre. The French fries were really good though and service was great. But other than that it’s an ok for me. Will try their dinner menu though.
