Sat by the bar for brunch. There was a new bartender named Robert who was so nice and so friendly. Price point wise, you guys are expensive for what you’re getting— I had steak and eggs and was somewhat disappointed by the lack of food on the plate but fortunately, it tasted good so it wasn’t the end of the world. Robert made an amazing Bloody Mary which is my deal breaker! If they’re all made like that, I’ll def come in just for that.

Service was great, price is high, setting is fabulous, they had live music.

I made a reservation at Norah to celebrate a friend’s promotion and it wants until we arrived at 8:30 for our reservation that they told us their kitchen had closed and couldn’t serve anymore. It was a very frustrating evening. They said they were calling and letting people know but I didn’t receive any calls or messages through my reservation confirmation. This was a very unpleasant experience.

Food was wonderful for the price. The waiter gave very good recommendations on what to get and they were well worth it. Will go again

Please think twice before you come to Norah to celebrate an important night with your family. My experience at Norah was by far the worst experience I’ve ever had, and there are better restaurants you can go to and spend $100+ per person.

I picked this place to celebrate my husband’s 26th birthday with him & my in-laws. Norah appeared on multiple Thrillist articles, and therefore I went there with high expectations.

I want to be fair:nice ambiance, nice & salty seafood, and good cocktails. Lots of good waiters and servers and bartenders I’m sure, but here’s what happened to me at Norah:

1) We were seated in the side dining room instead of the main one, and were seated at the far back of the restaurant. The ambiance was much less attractive.

2) when another guest of 4 were seated next to us, they immediately asked to sit in the main dining room, and got re-seated instantly.

3) I asked our server (Harrison G, as appeared on the receipt), if we can please switch to the main dining room, because its my husband’s birthday, and that it was in the reservation note that we’d really appreciate the effort.

4) Harrison, fortunately became extremely hostile & and without even checking with the host, he shut us down by saying

‘No. We have 150 guests in that room and everything is booked, this part you’re sitting in it’s part of the restaurant too.’

Quite honestly, perhaps it was a super busy night and he couldn’t accommodate, and that would’ve been okay if he’s shown any proper manner or empathy. There was none.

5) for the rest of the night, Harrison stopped by our table less than 4 times - we got tired of waiting at one point and had to order our drinks at the bar.

6) there is no closure to this. I understand it could happen to anyone. But personally I will never come to, or recommend Norah or Norah’s sister restaurant to anyone, given how many restaurants there are in WeHo.

I have never had the lights turned on a half hour before a restaurants closes. Felt very rushed out the door like the staff wanted to go home. This was felt by not only our table but others around us as well.

The food and atmosphere was lovely. Priced well. The service was friendly, but rather slow. We would have had another round of drinks of the service would have been more attentive. Overall really nice experience.

Food was excellent but the back of the restaurant where we were seated was ridiculously dark and the server did not have a flashlight or any light to assist in reading the menus. Part of the experience of enjoying food is seeing the beauty of the presentation but we literally could not make out anything but vague shapes on the plates when they arrived so the restaurant is really doing itself a disservice by eliminating one of the main aspects of fine dining.

While the food here is quite excellent, the live band at brunch (during both of my visits) was WAY TOO LOUD. My requests to have the speaker volume turned down went completely ignored. It's a shame ... Norah is very convenient and I love the food, but I won't return given how impossible it is to hear conversations with my guests.

I really liked the place itself. Very cool inside...but a bit noisy. Nice little jazz trio playing. The food was fantastic and the service was also very good with a smile:)
My only problem was very small portions and very pricey. Overall great...but expect to spend $200 with a few drinks.

I was kind of disappointed bc I made a reservation and I was seated at the bar. The hostess said the tables were booked but there were so many empty tables we could've easily eaten at and had a better experience. I've been to Norah before and never had an issue with seating so I was a little taken aback.

Incredible food with a mixed bag for the servers. One was excellent. Detailed about his love of wine and the food. Raved about the chef. The other was pleasant and adequate. The greeter at the door lacked warmth and personality. Would come back for food but wouldn't rush back, since we were not made to feel very welcome When we entered. This was our first visit. Ya know what they say about first impressions?

The brunch menu is excellent here. Not the typical menu items you would expect to see, but that was a plus on out opinion. The French Toast was so custardy, it didn’t need any syrup at all. And the Fried Chicken sandwich with housemade bread & butter pickles, as well as the Cornbread are worth coming back for.

This place had great food, however service sucked! It took so long for our drinks at the bar that we had another bartender ask if we've been helped. When we got to our table, our waiter was so UNATTENTIVE. We had to ask for water 2-3x and when it was time to cut the cake, we had to ask him for the cake back. Love Norahs food, but never spending time to dine there again.

The food was mediocre at best. And there were 2 waiters working the entire room which was packed. It took 30 minutes to get my simple drink and when I complained I was told that there were only 2 waiters working the room. Wrong answer. I told them that was not my problem. If I'm going to pay top dollar for a meal I expect to get proper service. Our evening was ruined by the lack of service. And there was no obe including the host and hostess taking control of the room and situation. There are way too many great restaurants in LA to return to this one. Too bad.
