My wife and I went for our wedding anniversary and had an awesome time. Charlotte was spectacular. The food was cooked perfectly, I had the Salmon Oscar and my wife had the Grouper and both were cooked to perfection.

Thanks you NOCA for making our special event a special evening!

Made a 10 p.m. reservation since you close at 11 on Friday and Saturday. We showed up on time only to be told ( very nicely ) that the kitchen was already closed. A full hour before your posted closing time. We were starving, so we left to find somewhere else to eat. Why would you take reservations but close your kitchen early? Too many good restaurants on Canton street to be pushing people away.

The food was adequate but service was dismal. It took quite a while to be recognized by our waitress. We ordered one appetizer so we could get settled and enjoy a cocktail. Then we ordered two starters and two main courses. ALL FOUR were delivered at once. We had empty water and cocktail glasses - we would happily have ordered wine with our dinner but never had the opportunity. I had the grouper, which was very tasty. My husband had pasta with chicken and it was blah and boring. Our waitress seemed oblivious that he only ate a few bites.

The restaurant definitely needs to do a better job of training their staff. We wouldn't return - there are too many better options in the area.

This was our first visit to NOCA and won't be our last. Valet parking is available, which is great because there is limited parking in this area. The service was fantastic. There were many things we wanted to try on the menu. I had a tasty pear martini cocktail to start along with delicious appetizers: fried green tomatoes, crab cakes, and bruschetta. We had a variety of entrees. The special that night was lobster mac and cheese. After having this in New England, the bar was set high. With a grilled lobster tail atop mac and cheese with some additional lobster meat mixed in, it was very good although probably will pass next time. The seafood sampler with scallops, crab cakes, etc., the filet tenderloin (cooked as requested) and the crab cake entrees were all delicious. For dessert, the gluten free chocolate cake with ice cream was what you would expect from a gluten free chocolate cake (okay), but the crème brulee was wonderful. All in all, a great experience and great value. Look forward to our next visit!

Not at all what I anticipated. Arrived early for our reservation. Was seated promptly, table was for two and quite small. Ordered drinks which took at least ten minutes and the place wasn’t even full. Ordered the crab dip appetizer, which comes with two types of bread. One of the bread choices was stale and when I mentioned it to the waitress she just brought more of the other bread. She did nothing to alert the kitchen there was a problem. I wanted that bread, but for it to be fresh. We ordered the whole lobster special which is what they are known for on Thursday evenings. Sign says 1-1 1/2 lbs for $16.00. The people seated next to us asked about the size of the lobsters and were told they were only 1lb. No bigger. The lady stated your sign outside says differently. Waitress made excuses and walked away. At that point I knew dinner was going to be disappointing. We ordered the lobster and a side of grilled asparagus. Barely had four or five bites of lobster and you were finished. Received 6 asparagus ($6.00 for a side) which were the most pathetic looking asparagus I had ever seen. I asked the waitress if this was normal and she looked at me as if I was crazy. What a bad choice for a side. So disappointed! Would not recommend this restaurant as they do not seem to care if their patrons leave satisfied. Will not be back, too many other great restaurants in Roswell for me to spend my money.

The food was mediocre at best ... Saturday night at 8 pm the restaurant was less than a third full... my husband ordered his dinner to be told they were out of chicken and out of mash potatoes... my blue cheese salad dressing was thin and watery. The waitress did the best she could with what she had to work with.
On the upside our drinks were very good.
I don’t know how they will make it on a street that has many good restaurants.

NOCA was a pleasant surprise! We'd never visited before, however, I'd seen it on OpenTable and we were wanting to try it. SO GLAD THAT WE DID! After a long and hot Saturday, we wanted to enjoy a light dinner. The salads on the menu sounded good, and they were! My wife had the Caesar with grilled chicken, and I had the Greek with steak - BOTH were absolutely delicious and just the right portions!

We talked ourselves into dessert and had the Blueberry Cobbler w/Vanilla Ice Cream. Yowza! It was amazing! Overall a fantastic experience and we will be back!!!

The outdoor patio is a nice way to experience the Roswell atmosphere. The food here is really very good. We had the Pistaccio encrusted Grouper and the duck. Very reasonably priced and very well prepared. Friendly and attentive wait staff and excellent value ensures we will be returning here for sure.

We came for the Thursday Lobster special. Unfortunately, they only had 2 lobsters left at 7p and we were a party of 4. The lobster came before the rest of the sides. We ordered the Brussels sprouts, green beans and mash potatoes. The Brussels sprouts were not good and tasted like they were frozen and stayed out too long. The green beans and mashed potatoes were ok but not spectacular.
I’m disappointed because I had high hopes for this place and it was not stellar.

We went to NOCA for the Thursday Lobster special after going to Roswell Alive at 5 event. We had a reservation and were seated immediately which was great. After that, it was all down hill with messed up drink order that never got picked up at the bar until my wife went and picked it up. Our waitress had ordered the drinks incorrectly. She told us that they were out of Lobster, but then told us she had some left which was great except my wife didn't want Lobster, I did. She cancelled my wife's order and had to redo the entire order which delayed service another 20 minutes. When the food came, it was not prepared properly and the Lobster was OK at best. We have had awesome experiences at NOCA for years, but this one was so bad, we do not plan to be back any time soon.

Our waitress was very attentive and checked back with us several times getting our drink, appetizer, and then our dinner order. 3 of the party ordered the lobster special, and they all said it was good. She did not mention the special. I asked about it. The sides are very overpriced for the amount you get. I ordered an entree I have had before there, the chicken with the killer pan sauce. I did not think it was as good as last time. I would not order it again. The chicken was somewhat rubbery, and the sauce was fairly bland. We did order a bread pudding for dessert. It was definitely over cooked. We could not finish it. We told her, and she removed it from the bill. Overall enjoyable, but for the price, not sure we will be back.

Extremely loud. We had to lean across the table and yell to hear each other. It was hard to enjoy the meal and our friends under the circumstances. When we were almost finished, one gentleman found a dead fly in the sauce on his plate. Disgusting! We all stopped eating st that point. Will not go back!

I have enjoyed Noca several times. On this occasion scallops and risotto were tasty, crab dip was good, with delicious crackers and bread accompanying. the field green salad was delicious. Seared ahi tuna is a generous portion. Enjoyed the ginger soy sauce on the tuna, and would’ve liked even more of it. My only issue was with the mashed potatoes which atypically tasted dry like instant, unfortunately.

This was my first time to NOCA and will definitely return. We had a small group of fiends and sat outside. The menu had something for everyone and everyone shared their dishes so we were able to taste several main dishes. ALL were awesome making my next visit difficult to decide what to order. The location was good with convenient parking. The staff worked together to ensure our needs were cared for.

NOCA is a great place for appetizers and dinner, and you won't be disappointed by selecting this quaint restaurant. We ate indoors because it was quiet and cooler, and the atmosphere was perfect. Carola was our server and was the best. The photo was the salmon entree with spinach and asparagus topped with crab meat; it delicious all the way down to the potato cake. But our other entree, the lobster ravioli, was even better. A delicious lemon butter sauce plus bites of lobster outside the raviolis. Have always enjoyed the great food served here and the friendly staff. Looking forward to the next time!

We all loved NOCA. Our server, Desiree, was outstanding. She made great suggestions and she seemed
to enjoy serving us. We did have one problem. One of us ordered the ribeye steak--It was not a ribeye. It was smaller than the steak in my steak frites. It was not rare as he requested. I ordered my steak medium rare and it was spot on, but his ribeye was well done. It was mentioned to Desiree and to the chef, but nothing was done about it. The manager did not even come by to apologize. We tipped Desiree handsomely because she did a great job, but the manager was would receive an "F" for his part. All this
would not keep me from coming back, but we would be a bit for aggressive about getting what we ordered.
