    Losing their touch over the years. Service has become barely tolerable. Appetizers are solid, entrees mediocre at best. Sit at the bar and get the burger, or do one better—go to Nopalito instead.

    Chicken, Burger, and Chop are all lit af.

    Everything is good here BUT special shout outs to the burger, the chicken, the cocktails.

    The best pork chop I've ever had. Solid burger as well.

    Get a reservation weeks ahead of time. Fantastic (albeit a little slow) service and delicious food. Avo toast and the pork chop were great.
  • Michael T.
    Arguably the best pork chop I've ever had.
  • Wilson F.
    That burger (📷), and that pork chop, and all the small plates (anchovies, asparagus salad, lamb bucatini), were all superb. Add to that an impeccable wine list and fine service for top marks!

    Fantastic burger and bacon flatbread

    Nope is beautiful, service is super kind and the atmosphere is super fun. Food is good, not everything on the menu is fantastic though. Burger was good, I had better in the city.

    Love the ambience. The place is very hygienic, staff care a lot about how the food is plated and served. Limited veggie options! I liked their crunchy avocado toast.

    One of our favorite meals ever. Fusilli with Olive Oil Poached Yellowtail, Pappardelle with Nine Hour Bolonese, Porkchop with Horseradish Cream, and Huckleberry Buttermilk Panna Cotta were to die for.

    Just like everyone says, the custard French toast is absolutely delicious! The Spanish tortilla is a pretty good too.

    Had the burger and spaghetti, delicious! Walked in around 10pm on a Thursday and got seated at the chef's bar right away without a reservation. Fun place to sit and watch the chefs

    Custard French Toast is really amazing. Half of it is good for 1 person, if you order sides it's better to share. The full size is 2 slices for 4 people. The mocha is good. Gwen it's really kind!

    Just about everything here is great, but the burger and pork chop are outstanding. They've also got a phenomenal wine list so be sure to ask for a pairing.

    Known for their hip and lively atmosphere and clientele, Nopa serves up delicious brunch dishes on the weekends. The queue gets long, so try to think ahead (and put your name down) or prepare to wait.

    Food's alright. If you don't have a reservation there is no order for walkins. You get to hang around the communal table and wait for some get up. Order is not guaranteed nor will they take name to 📞

    Very very boozy cocktails and an excellent burger (cheddar, medium rare is my usual choice). If you're looking for a seat at the bar or open tables, be ruthless. Plenty of assholes will sneak in.

    Expect perfect execution. 8 staple entrees, but flavor and sides change with what's fresh at the market. The small plates are usually more bold and inventive flavors, 2-3 of those also make a meal.

    If biscuits are on the brunch menu, get them! Recommend getting a 1/2 order of french toast as it's huge and almost nauseatingly custardy. Promise you'll feel better post-meal.

    Everything is delicious here. Make a reservation a month in advance if you want to eat at an American supper time. If you're ok with eating at 11pm or midnight, then walk in instead.
