    Food is outstanding and so are cocktails and the best mocktail list I have seen anywhere. Sommelier excellent and other staff. Wait service could be better….and super loud….but we were sitting in middle of it all inside so maybe that was it? Saw celebrity Nico Hiraga as we left hanging out with his parents lol.

    Had the pork chop - a signature dish. Solid, but nothing special. Side of grilled broccoli had a unique flavor with a lot of sweet olive oil and lemon. Not quite sure if Nopa is worth the price point, but nonetheless a good meal in a neat neighborhood.

    The cocktails and food were creative and so good! We very much appreciated the time the sommelier spent with us - resulted in an excellent recommendation. The place is a little loud, so it can be difficult to have a conversation, but everything else was quite good.

    There are better places that do Californian food and feature seasonal produce. We waited 20 minutes to be seated, then another 30 minutes for our order to get taken. The appetizers (duck liver mousse and smoked trout) were great, the waiter and sommelier were excellent, but the entrees fell flat (too salty and poor value). If you're going to visit, splitting a bunch of apps and a bottle of wine would be my recommendation.

    The menu has been modified and reduced in size compared to pre-Covid days but the restaurant continues to deliver quality service, consistently interesting and delicious dishes using fresh ingredients locally sourced. For those like myself that prefer the outdoor dining experience still, they have a very comfortable parklet heated dining area. The pricing is on the high side considering it's hard to get out of there for less than $200 for 2 diners even with only a couple of drinks but wonderful experience when you want a splurge and don't we all deserve it !

    I hadn't been to Nopa in years, but a friend was in town so we had an impromptu night out, party of 6. Everything was as good as I remembered. Still don't know how they make the best pork chop in town, but there you go...they do. Everything from drinks to dessert was great. So glad they're still going strong!

    Nopa this time is a different Nopa from what we remembered and experienced. Years ago/pre Covid, the kitchen would have prepared artistic and gourmet food, beautiful exquisite stuffed pumpkin blossom, exquisite white fish......... NOW: fried chicken? be honest, the chicken is dry and plain; Veggie stew used the cheapest ingredients like potato, chickpeas, and canned tomato sauce, lots of potato if that is what you are looking for; grilled broccoli tasted bitter which I didn't understand where the bitterness was from. What else to disappoint me? I am not here looking for cheap comfort food. You can definitely tell from the food that the kitchen is trying their best to control the cost of food with cheap ingredients, canned sauce, low quality meat........ while every business and everyone is trying to survive through post Covid, there are still some businesses won't give up on their quality and integrity because they know that is what makes them thrive in long run.

    I was really excited to try Nopa as I have lived near it for years and often see it full inside or with a line outside. You even have to request a reservation weeks in advance. I've heard good things, but I was disappointed. The ambience and vibe inside is nice. I requested a quiet table where my fiancé and I could sit next to each other and they were accommodating of that. Service was overall pretty good. Waiter was nice and they were quick about bussing the table, refilling water, and wiping crumbs away. The biggest downside, regret even, of the night was prices and value. Nothing we ate was amazing and definitely not worth the prices. My cocktail was $18, we shared a flatbread, lamb meatballs that didn't taste like lamb at all, and the bucatini pasta. I'm glad we refrained from getting anything else or anything more expensive than the $20 dishes because I suspect we would have been disappointed and the $120 bill at the end was painful enough. There are other places in the area that definitely provide more bang for your buck and your tongue.

    The pork chop is delicious, the homemade pasta and meat was delicious, I do not care for their cocktails, I ordered two and a dessert cocktail, not impressed at all, appetizers were ok, worth the price if you have already experienced some of the food and you know what to get and feel like repeating, ok sometimes

    Nopa never disappoints. Everything we ordered (the trout appetizer, the lasagna, the baby lettuce salad) were all amazing. We always say that we are going to try more restaurants around SF, but with Nopa we know that we, and our guests, are going to have an outstanding meal and service so we come back time and time again.

    Service was inattentive. Sommelier asked us how much we would like to spend on our wine in front of our guests , which was awkward. At the end the staff hustled us outta there which was insulting considering we spent over $500 on dinner.

    After seeing recommendations in a number of blogs we were not disappointed. Our table wasn't quite ready when we got there so we were directed to the bar. The staff were super friendly and attentive but space was pretty tight for standing so we felt a little uncomfortable. Seating outdoors was cosy despite the breeze. Food and drinks are pricey but portions are very generous. Food was delicious but pretty rich so sharing would be a great move. Service overall was outstanding - couldn't fault how friendly, knowledgeable and helpful everyone was.

    I've been going to Nopa for 10 years now, and they've consistently operated at a high level. The bar program is on point, the kitchen rotates dishes seasonally but also prepares them differently week-to-week and finds a way to reveal a new dimension even if you've ordered the dish before. Sadly, the kitchen has developed salt tongue and have lost their sensitivity and calibration. Literally everything was oversalted, including our rhubarb strawberry cornmeal crumble with brown sugar ice cream (also salted). I wanted to send it back, but my gf vetoed me. I consider myself someone who cooks well and uses salt liberally in my kitchen, so I'm not a sodiophobe. Fix that, and the loud environment and premium prices will be worth it again.

    Not as good quality of food as I remembered from a few years ago. Ordered the pork shoulder and it was over cooked and very salty. Wait staff delivered food to the wrong table twice. Drinks were expensive $18 Top section of the restaurant was closed too Unfortunate because this used to be my favorite restaurant in SF
