Italian
NOX was inspired by the rich traditions of Italian cuisine and the fresh and bright flavour profiles
found on the West Coast of Canada. Upscale plates in a down-to-earth space lets everyone
know they are welcome to pull up a chair—a place designed as much for special occasions as
for spontaneous pop-ins.
Our menu will change with the seasons as we embrace the temperamental nature of the West
Coast and its micro-seasons, aligning with the Italian philosophy of using what is in your own
backyard. We source as much as we can close to home and use imported Italian goods
when needed.

    Ordered 5 dishes. Other than the wait for food, service was okay Duck was average, steak was inedible and was left I uneaten. Crab noodles where the best dish.

    To begin: this is a nice new restaurant that we wanted to try and had heard some positive reviews. The service was friendly and attentive. The food wasn’t up to the price nor the hype! 1st course - seared scallops on frisée - the scallops were ok and the frisée was bitter and off; told them waitress with little recognition of our concern. 2nd course - wild boar; grilled octopus and fried egg - this dish was underwhelming lay under- seasoned and nothing special. 3rd course - crab pasta - seriously I could have emptied a can of canned crab on top of some boiled noodles and tossed it in olive oil and gone better! This was a huge disappointment! 4th course - pork gnocchi with pear / gnocchi was chewy and improperly prepared and the dish again was under seasoned and below average. All the dishes are tiny portions and heavily priced - VERY disappointed in this place considering how much I enjoy the Mexican place in New West!

    I enjoyed the restaurant from start to finish! Service was friendly and genuine; I felt included in the environment. The food was lovely and fresh - new flavours I hadn’t tried, generous serving sizes, and healthy ingredients for each dish. Loved the boozy pairings option to go with the prix fixe option, and the tagliatelle ragu was the most amazing pasta I’ve ever had! Hands down would go again. We made reservations a week ahead, and found cheap street parking without issue.

    Probably in the top five for worst restaurant food I’ve ever had. From undercooked bland vegetables to a soup like risotto topped with vinegar and honey. I won’t be back and I feel sorry for the lovely server who probably suffers because of the food.

    Most of our food is good but I definitely won't recommend the ribeye steak. My friend ordered it and it's very tough, can't eat half of the steak. The other food, the wild boar, bison tartar, parsnip and apple salad and the pasta, is good

    We were very excited to check out this restaurant but was very disappointed how bad the food was. Some dishes were either overly salty or bland. Price is on the higher side but if the food was good i wouldn’t mine the price but not worth it and will not be returning. I would however recommend their drinks and service was really good!

    The pasta and primi were delicious but unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to order mains. We told our server we were planning to share pasta and primi amongst the table of 5 and would then order our main dishes. The server didn’t check in with us or tell us the kitchen was closing so when we went to order mains the kitchen was closed and our meal was over. Very disappointing. The food was good enough that I would consider going back but have very low expectations of the service.

    NOXResponded on July 25, 2022Dear Nina, Thank you for your review. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincerest apologies. Should you have the confidence in us, I kindly ask you to contact our operational manager Alejandro at alejandro@noxrestaurant.ca so that we can hear the details of your dinning experience, and hopefully rectify the situation! We would love to hear you out and hopefully welcome you back and ensure that you have a fantastic meal at NOX. Warm regards, Lucy Nahacka General Manager

    I tried their cicchetti, crab egg noodles, and pork & pear gnocchi. The Pork in the gnocchi dish was a bit dry and gnocchi was too hard, but cicchetti and egg noodles were very delicious. it's seasoned perfectly, presentation was also amazing. The atmosphere and interior design was great :) I would definitely go back.

    Very average restaurant. We had the chili crab noodles and it had no flavour at all. Tasted like bland instant noodles. The steak was average as well, had no wow factor and tasted like... Steak with a light sauce on top. The gnocchi was a bit better tasting (ie. Had flavour) but the pork was too salty. Duck breast was good but the accompanying grilled onion was way too salty. Highlight of the entire meal was the yuzu cheesecake. Would not return, there are better restaurants in Yaletown or the Downtown core. Don't fall for the instagram hype 🤷🏻‍♀️

    A modern, new space with chill ambience. Seated at a very tight table for two for a party of 3; clutter of wine glasses, water glassess, cutlery & plates completely filled the table prior to adding food plates yet server did not think to relocate us to a larger table til we requested partway thru the meal. Food was generally good; some dishes arrived lukewarm. One pasta dish (ravioli) was undercooked. Standouts were duck and bison tartare. Portions for entrees were small given the price. Server spilled red wine on guest’s white pants but did her best trying to remove stain which did not come out. About a month old at the time of our visit, Nox needs to find it’s stride with both service, food, and timing. Given it’s downtown presence, where higher end Italian restaurants are plentiful in Vancouver, the success of this upscale, restaurant depends on how it can separate itself from the pack of notable establishments at this pricepoint ie. Cin Cin, Acqua Farina, Tutto and others.

    The concepts are good and the food was tasty. HOWEVER, music was perhaps not appropriate for the ambience, staff were lacking in training (some basic mistakes like mixing still / sparkling water, over pouring a beer do it frothed over, etc). Food presentation needs improving. The carbonara looked like it had been sitting under a hot lamp for a while (or had been microwaved). Flavours are interesting, but the mix of Italian and West Coast did not really work. Too much conflict and bit too intense (had to buy some Gaviscon afterwards!)

    Great new restaurant with inspired Italian food. Beautiful presentation, innovative flavors and a menu with many choices that scream "try me"! The duck crostini was my favorite of the four available. Leek ravioli and Wild boar are a must try! The risotto was beautifully cooked and very flavorful. The service team was excellent 👏 Lucy the GM is very knowledgeable about their wines and recommended the perfect red wine to go with the many dishes we tried. Desserts were not my favorite but the panacotta would be my recommendation if you want to end with something sweet (we had all their choices).

    Server changed midway, service drastically different between tables. We, fortunately, had a waiter that explained our dishes. Our “neighbor” had food placed in front of them with a “here is your…” which seemed lacking. The pasta we ordered was hot but both the duck and boar were lukewarm. Despite this, the duck was really good but the boar was dry and the fried egg did little to help… It was a birthday so we were gifted a tiramisu for desert, which was nice. However, we both agreed that the portion was not a $10 dessert, more an $8, if that.

    NOX showed up as a recommendation as a new dining venue to experience, and I was excited to share my first visit with a friend for their birthday. By the end, we both felt sorely indifferent about the meal - the experience was nothing impressionable from food to service to ambience. If you're not looking for anything special, this would be the place.
