    Great lunch spot. Easy online reservations. Great new summer time additions to the menu. You must try the Shrimp Cerviche - delicious. Plenty of service without intrusion. Love this place.

    They had none of their main dishes from the menu available, and the waiter took time to warn us they could only submit 5 orders at a time, for our table of 7, so we might have to wait? When the food did arrive, much of it was terrible.

    Sat for ~10 minutes before getting a server. Drinks were great, nice composition and glassware. Food was enjoyable and on point. We were celebrating a birthday, but they didn’t even mention it - i mentioned it twice on the reservation. All good tho, as we had a night cap elsewhere.

    We had fish and chips and risotto. The fish was good, chips were ordinary, and risotto was tasteless. Good waiter, though, and they comped my wine when I complained about risotto.

    I think our server forgot our food. It was cold. My short rib was tough. I asked to modify something on the menu and was told "No, we can't do that." It's a very pretty space. I hope that they invest some time in training staff and improving food prep quality.

    First time and Noa and it was a good experience. Met a friend for happy hour. Arrived at 4:30 and seated inside. Service as very quick and Anna our server was sweet. Drinks brought quickly. Ordered some appetizers and they were sent quickly and nice big portions. At the hummus, ceviche and Maki sampler. I did not enjoy the ceviche, the shrimp were quite firm, but the flavor was good. Menu had a nice assortment. Prices seemed average to high, but everything I saw served at tables around us looked delicious and nice portions.

    Great business lunch spot. Started with an OpenTable reservation, then easy in and sit down. NOA Burger is something special. Two patties, smashed, cheese grilled and crusty at right spots, and beef is perfectly cooked. Buffalo Chicken salad is great with plenty of chicken, blue cheese crumble and ruffage. Easy to have a conversation, eat and linger.

    The manager and our server Jason were so amazing!! We were celebrating college graduations (undergrad and graduate) and she (the manager, Vicky) made it really special. The menu was broad and offered lot of different options. The cocktail menu is phenomenal and I really enjoyed my Thai Tuna maki roll and the Pappardelle Bolognese. Next time I will have to try a dessert!! Overall, great ambiance in the heart of Minneapolis.

    Noa was mediocre. We had a competent and attentive server. The pappardelle bolognese had good flavor. The short ribs were very good, but the grits, kale, and fried onions were flavorless. Both meals came out lukewarm, so neither was very enjoyable to eat. We had the root beer float for dessert, which was good, but there's little that can go wrong with a root beer float. Overall, we wouldn't eat here again and wouldn't recommend it.

    Booked it for Mother's Day/Birthday celebration. Had high expectations. Surprisingly not well attended.The spicy chicken appetizer was phenomenal. But had to return 2 dishes. Others were ok. But we enjoyed the deserts. I appreciate the manager coming to apologize but my birthday was still ruined. I never returned the dish in my life. So pretty disappointed.

    We ate here for a dinner before going to a concert at Orchestra Hall. I'm glad this place is available because there aren't many restaurants of quality available not too far from Orchestra Hall right now because so many haven't reopened yet. I made a reservation and we were seated promptly. The service was friendly and knowledgeable, if a bit slower paced. But, we got our orders in quickly enough and the food came quickly enough that we made it to the concert on-time. The food was all of high quality, prepared well, and the flavors were balanced and satisfying. I won't go so far as to say it was amazing, but it was all very good. The noise level of the place was pretty quiet, except that we were seated in a booth near the kitchen and I personally was in close earshot of all the activity going on in there which made it a bit nosier for me. Overall, I am curious about some other things on the menu and would come back.

    Noa is a great restaurant in a very convenient location in the IDA Center in downtown Minneapolis. I've have tried the salmon, crispy chicken sandwich and Noa burger. They have all been excellent, the service is great and the ambience is wonderful.

    I love noa's menu and beverage list, particularly the wine options. Our food last night was very good and our server was attentive even as she was training in a new server. The nachos on the HH menu were a great starter and we were able to get the brisket on the side to accommodate our vegetarian folks. Two things could have been better. 1) The cauliflower steak was not as expected - it was nearly an entire head of cauliflower that seemed to be steamed and then lightly seared. I expected a "steak" which would be cut into a slab and seared more heavily. It was still tasty, but not something I would order again as I prefer it in steak format. 2) We ordered a glass of wine after dinner that I believe was not from a fresh bottle. I had that wine at noa previously and it was quite good. Last night's had the taste of a wine with too much air indicating the bottle had been open for a while or not sealed/stored properly.
