    First time at Nopa….Fantastic experience! Server Antonio answered all questions….polite, courteous and even brought my husband birthday dessert (with candle). Food delicious. Wish there was one on the east coast. An absolute SF gem!

    went late. felt rushed by staff. waitress was clearly ready to go home. messed up a few things in our order (only two of us) which is no big deal except she clearly blamed us. food is always good. will always go back but while late night used to be great ambiance now more of “ugh another customer.”

    Our food and drinks were excellent. Our main dishes took too long to come out but our server was outstanding. He brought us two appetizers on the house. Even though there was a glitch with the GC we presented, our server stayed calm and warm. He was outstanding and I had no trouble tipping 25%. But he went above and beyond and it's refreshing to actually get service vs ordering on a QR code and having little to no interaction with the server.

    Superb food. Excellent service. Outdoor dining is better because of the weather (indoor is muggy) but it can get loud when big vehicles roll by.

    Made reservations & was sat at a table quickly. It was then 45 minutes until we received food. The restaurant was packed with people. People were shouting to each other to be able to hear. Sound echoes in the restaurant. Due to where our table was, we had individuals (who were waiting for a table) literally looking over our shoulders the whole dinner. There was considerable traffic down their one narrow aisle. Food was cooked well; but due to excessive noise, congestion & wait for food, I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Food is solid. Service is spotty - our main server seemed uninterested in taking care of us and made our experience less than. Highly recommend the warmed goat cheese appetizer. Pork chop is still the best thing on the menu in my opinion. The fried chicken was flavored well and the chicken itself was juicy but the batter was a bit thick.

    We love nopa, always so friendly and professional from the person who answers the phone, to the hostess to the wait staff to the wine guy! The good is delish. We always ask to sit in their outside seating which is comfortable and warm. It’s a bit expensive but really not more than other comparable places in the city and it really never disappoints.

    Sat outside which was a little hectic with lots of buses and people passing by. I would prefer inside and had a much better experience when we dined indoors. The service was also a little slow. After we sat, it took almost 30 minutes for the waiter to come and take our orders even though I knew what I wanted right away.

    Excellent food, great attentive service, and a nice outdoor, curbside, heated “parklet” made for an enjoyable evening with friends. As a long time patron, who had not been since 2018, I was pleased to see nothing has changed, even after our long pandemic meltdown. I recommend a meal at Nopa without reservations……but you’ll need one to get in, it’s as popular as ever, and deservedly so.

    Simply Outstanding! King Salmon Crudo, Warm Goat Cheese with Crostinis (and roasted strawberries), smoked trout, pork chop, chicken, and a pasta. It was all divine, our wait staff was on top of everything and their wine recommendation was incredible (not even on the list - and affordable). What a great restaurant - go here and sample the menu! Don’t be afraid to try the French fries with basil aioli - wow.

    We had a nice meal for our anniversary. The service is attentive and knowledgeable. I’ve always found their menu on the pretentious side. Even more than most places, I have to look up or ask what most of the ingredients even are. I had the pappardelle Bolognese and it was really tasty. My husband had Morrocon spiced fried chicken. That was good as well. We both agreed it could have come with some greens on the side instead of 4 pieces of chicken. The seating is quite cramped and it’s noisy. It remains to be a popular spot for many years.

    The ambience and service were excellent. I think they overstretched themselves in terms of how many covers they could manage. Main course let down the overall meal and was pretty mediocre - Moroccan style fried chicken - too salty rather than spices. Desserts were excellent. A good restaurant but not as good as it thinks it is.

    Nopa is one of the top restaurants in San Francisco and even California. The menu has been consistent since they opened with staples that are always available like the pork chop, burger and bolognese but my favorites are usually in the small plates where they focus on super seasonal ingredients. They are the epitome of California cuisine and always use the highest quality seasonal produce and present it in ways that delight and never disappoint. Never fussy or pretentious. Solid wine list, seasonal cocktails and beautiful desserts to boot.

    I ate outside, so the noise level was pleasant, but when I went inside to use the bathroom, I was shocked at how loud it was. People were having to speak quite loudly to be heard by their table mates. My waiter was fabulous. I tipped him well.
