    Didn’t eat but didn’t want to hurt the ratings…went to the speakeasy and it was fantastic. Bartenders were spot on with drink creations for us. Can’t recommend this place enough, definitely a must stop for everyone!

    No idea about their food as we didn't have any in the speakeasy. The two bartenders were amazing and the overall experience was wonderful. My only thought is if there are empty seats, there's no need for the time limit.

    5 Star for Neighborhood food but 3 for Noble Experiment drinks etc. Not what it used to be pre-covid...used wrong Rum in Mai Tais, as I was told they ran out of other. At 7pm?

    Brandon was absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgable. He made us drinks to perfection and we could tell he was very passionate about the experience he was providing us. Brandon mentioned repeatedly that the speakeasy makes all of their own juices! The ambience was quiet and dark. I would return to this establishment over and over again.

    We made reservations for 6pm and we were the second party to get seated. They’re suppose to serve you in the order that parties come in because it’s a one hour limit. The Bartenders flat out ignored us after making our first drink. From my experience working as a server and bartender for 7 years, it’s most likely because he got butt hurt that we didn’t like his drink. The way it works at this bar is that it’s Dealer’s Choice, so you describe to the bartender what you like and they’ll whoop something up for you. Well…if the bartender actually listened and didn’t walk away while we were telling him what we liked, maybe he could’ve done a better job. After finishing the first round, we wanted to order a second one before leaving. That definitely didn’t happen - The bartender was obviously trying to get rid of us since he just dropped off the check without saying anything or even acknowledging our presence. He even made drinks for parties that came AFTER us, which made absolutely no sense since we came first! We told the manager that we were waiting for a second round, and thank goodness she came in because she actually listened to our preferences. Her drinks were fantastic. Shoutout to her! Either way, definitely not worth coming back to based on this experience.

    Wow, what an amazing way to spend the evening. The whole set up is just dope, feels like an exclusive experience due to the small groups and excellent catering. The bartenders are great, I can almost guarantee you will enjoy whichever cocktail they make for you. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation here, great place to bring a date or a group of friends.

    Nobel experiment experience was good, we were greeted at the door and explained the logistics of the place (no menu) we were guided to our table and assigned a bartender who make sure to get a glimpse of our preferred spirits and flavors to come up with great/ spot on drinks. Overall I will surely go again this was a customer focused experience which tie down well with what a speakeasy should be -not too mainstream-.

    AMAZING. Honestly the experience would have been different with a different bartender. We adored Brandon, he was so knowledgeable and all of drinks were 10/10. We left full but still wanting more. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to be back!

    I was extremely disappointed with the service. Our reservation was at 6:45, anticipating a wait we got there 10 minutes early. Once we were called to the back around 7:05, the hostess set us at our table. Around 10 minutes later another couple is set next to us and was immediately helped by the bartender. Out of disbelief that we were being ignored, I made eye contact with him. He immediately said “I’ll be right with you”. As he new he skipped us. At that point I felt purposely ignored. Once he came over to take our order, he made us feel like he’s was doing us a favor by taking our order. He was condescending and rude. Once or drinks arrived that was the last time we were attended to. This was my wife’s first time coming to Noble and will be the last time.

    Exceptional service at every corner. Brandon, Nathan, and Ken made us feel very welcome at the bar and made sure our needs were satisfied. Beautiful low-lit setting with music that isn't too loud but high enough to jam out to when your song comes on. Will definitely be going back!

    Taylor the bartender was awesome. Made two great drinks for me after a brief conversation. Was happy to take the time explain them even though he was clearly busy. Fun experience. The only criticism I would have, is the hostess area. It's small (which is fine) but very disorganized with how people come and go.

    Dope bartenders and service and BOMB DRINKS. But the music is way too damn loud. It makes it so hard to listen and talk to one another. It's not just that it's busy either. The music is actually BLASTING. Maybe it's some tactic or something lol, but that definitely negatively impacted my experience.
