We enjoyed the shrimp appetizer and the craft cocktails very much. The side of augratin potatoes was excellent. The salmon was generous and tasty although cooked slightly rarer than expected. The host was generous and thoughtful in offering us a free dessert or a discount on our meal. I would go there again if in the area in the future.

Manager was VAPING/or SMOKING in the kitchen while we were having dinner. We inquired about this, and a server said he was a manager. Very disappointing and unclean!!!

Our wait person had no personality.
When asked about your Crabcakes, she was totally stumped . Her description was, “um they have breadcrumbs and and onion, ummm, crab and held together with mayo.
Did not Wow me!
The food was good and rich.

We really enjoy Noca, however, we do prefer restaurants that serve bread. This is not a deal breaker, but when your having drinks its important.

NOCA used to be a favorite, but apparently they have lost their way a bit. Our waiter was very pleasant, but not very well trained and the food was well below what we have come to expect.

Our crab dip appetizer was Luke warm, but edible. We ordered a wedge salad and we each ordered fried lobster tail for our entree with a side of au gratin potatoes.

He brought the salad and the lobster tails at the same time like 5 minutes after we ordered them, and we waited for the potatoes and waited and waited and finally flagged him down to ask where they were.

Suffice to say we had them for dessert. The pacing, the food quality the missing items, are all indicative of poor management and training. The food and service here used to both be excellent, and now they aren’t. Our last couple of experiences here haven’t been great.

There is a lot of competition for our entertainment dollars in this area. I am sure it’s tough to keep up high standards in food and service. It will be a while before we come back.

We asked for salads with dressing on side-didn't happen.
The pistachio covered grouper was recommended-it was horrible-the fish was grey, not white.
We also had an order of scallops-they were rubbery
It was on July 4, so perhaps that caused seafood to be old/maybe regular chef on vacation

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!

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.
