Just moved to San Francisco and a friend recommended NOPA. Took my boyfriend there for date night. The food, wine, and service were all great!

This review is going to be colored based on the fact that I am a Vegetarian. This place has maybe one reasonable choice for an appetizer, but the entrees just suck if you are a Vegetarian. The service was good.

The worst part was the custard pie dessert. It was one of the worst desserts I have had. I had hoping they redeem themselves with a dessert, alas that was not going to be the case.

Maybe it’s not the kind of place you want to be at, if you are Vegetarian.

The service was really great and the food was good. Can be a bit pricey, so I recommend for a special occasion. The server helped us pick a wine based on our price point that was really good and then I ordered the fish stew which was really tasty!

I took my boyfriend to Nopa for his birthday. We had a great time. He is a chef, and he loves watching how the kitchen is working. The food was very good, waited a little bit longer for it, but the server let us know and we didn't really mind the wait. I like the bar area and the modern decor.

Enjoyed every item that we chose. More so for the flat bread. Should have placed two orders. The chicken and beef steak were also great choices.

A bit disappointed that their famous pork chops are not available all the time. They now serve that only on every other week and the day we were there was not the right week.

We went to Nopa for my son's family birthday. We heard the burgers were great we we live near Nopalito and have liked it... We waited for OVER 30 minutes for our burgers and mine had to be sent back because it was rare when I ordered medium.. the food server apologized but we felt underwhelmed by the entire experience and 4 burgers and a salad were over $100... will not be going back...

Just okay! We waited a long time for our entrees, which our server warned us about. However, once they arrived my fiances burger was way undercooked and my pasta just wasnt that special. If it had come out quicker I might feel differently, less anticipation. If its going to take close to an hour (from when we received our apps) I expect a whole lot more! Restaurant had a nice ambiance, and our server was great.
