    Perch and walleye dinners were very good, view and setting wonderful, noise level grew as it filled but certainly not a problem for conversation.

    I was concerned about some previous negative reviews left but found Noto’s just fine. Had the flatbread pizzas so can’t really comment on the other entrees. Pizza was good and the beer was cold. Nice view of the lake from pretty much every table.

    Wife and I was celebrating a anniversary and thought Noto would be good , wrong ! We both order perch dinners , perch was Luke warm and seemed like it had been setting out and was just so so . At $ 32 a plate I would expect a great fish dinner .

    Our evening at Noto's was fabulous. The atmosphere was terrific. We had a window table so we looked out over the beach and lake. The food was very, very good. From our appetizers to salads to dinner to dessert, everything was perfect. There were four of us dining and not one of us had a complaint. Our server was extremely attentive and sweet. She was just so nice and helped make our evening memorable. I would highly recommend and can't wait to go back. ENJOY!!!!

    Excellent food, but service was slow. While they were busy, to wait over 10 minutes to even be acknowledged at the table is to long. Additionally a salad was brought at the same time as the entree and when this was mentioned we were simply told, ‘we are busy’. I do have to say the food was outstanding, but to not be greeted or advised from the beginning their would be delays, is simply poor service.

    Gorgeous but cool evening. Had to wait 35 minutes to be seated from our reservation. Asked about shutting the window upstairs and was told probably no it so we moved to a table away from the wind. Then the window was shut for the next table that sat there. Oh well. Still live Notos at Bil Mar.

    Severely understaffed. Never delivered our appetizer. Took 1:30 to get food. Never checked back for drinks. Most of the food was very good. Deserts were the best. Great view, but too loud to talk. If you want just to hang at the bar, it would be fun. Dinner is a no go. Maybe would be better during the week. Too bad. I was really hoping this could be a go to.

    1) One hour after ordered food had to ask where food was as tables that were seated after us got food before us. When food came to the table one of the two orders was completely wrong. Rather than wait just ate what came. This was, however, not charged on bill (as it should have been handled). 2) Server never refilled water, asked me if I wanted another drink and left dirty first course dishes on table the remainder of the meal. 3) Mistakenly went into employees bathroom. It was FILTHY and there was a sign on the completely dysfunctional soap dispenser that employees must wash hands before returning to work. Well take it from me that is not happening. I hope someone from the health department is reading this because they would close establishment down. 4) Music was way too loud . Would be better not to have on at all.

    One of our favorite, go to restaurants in Grand Haven. Right on the beach with beautiful views of Lake Michigan. Food is always great there. Wife had the fillet and it was prepared perfectly. I had the Shrimp and Scallop pasta. My 2nd time, and it did not disappoint. We polished it off by sharing their Chocolate Hazelnut Tart and coffee. Just enough to finish a great afternoon of food and fun with friends. Highly recommend spending time at Noto's!

    We had a party of six at 5 pm on Saturday, May 7. It was the first time for all of us at Noto's at the BilMar. The restaurant is beautiful and so is the view of Lake Michigan. The only complaint would be that the sun shone brightly (and warmly) on us during our meal. At least two in our party were uncomfortable because of that. It would be nice if some type of curtain or screen was available to blunt the sun. Otherwise, it was quite excellent.

    Anniversary put that in reservation it was not acknowledged Asked waitress about wine selection and she knew nothing about wine. So she asked bar tender and the wine I wanted was exactly what I wanted but they were out unless I wanted to order a bottle and they normally sell by the glass? If you have a bottle your not out??? Food was good presentation was excellent but pricy. Waitress was good other than never filled water. Every glass empty on table had to ask.

    We come here quite often and last night it was very busy which was good. Our server, however did not pay hardly any attention to us at all. Someone else brought our order which was wrong. She never came back to our table to check on us so I went up to the bar to ask for condiments. She was just standing by the bar. She told us she had only been there 5 days. I would think they would at least train new staff to check to see if the order came to the table correct. I asked for sweet potato fries and got regular and my fiance' never got steak sauce because she didn't come . I am hoping it is just a one time thing. Generally Noto's is a great place to eat and watch the waves on Lake Michigan
