What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.2

We fell in love with Norah immediately, but then realized we we're better off friends.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Incredible food with a mixed bag for the servers. One was excellent. Detailed about his love of wine and the food. Raved about the chef. The other was pleasant and adequate. The greeter at the door lacked warmth and personality. Would come back for food but wouldn't rush back, since we were not made to feel very welcome When we entered. This was our first visit. Ya know what they say about first impressions?

The brunch menu is excellent here. Not the typical menu items you would expect to see, but that was a plus on out opinion. The French Toast was so custardy, it didn’t need any syrup at all. And the Fried Chicken sandwich with housemade bread & butter pickles, as well as the Cornbread are worth coming back for.

This place had great food, however service sucked! It took so long for our drinks at the bar that we had another bartender ask if we've been helped. When we got to our table, our waiter was so UNATTENTIVE. We had to ask for water 2-3x and when it was time to cut the cake, we had to ask him for the cake back. Love Norahs food, but never spending time to dine there again.

The food was mediocre at best. And there were 2 waiters working the entire room which was packed. It took 30 minutes to get my simple drink and when I complained I was told that there were only 2 waiters working the room. Wrong answer. I told them that was not my problem. If I'm going to pay top dollar for a meal I expect to get proper service. Our evening was ruined by the lack of service. And there was no obe including the host and hostess taking control of the room and situation. There are way too many great restaurants in LA to return to this one. Too bad.

From a girl falling off a chair at the next table and crashing into one of my guests, to having to flag down the waitress every time I wanted another pour off the bottle of wine I ordered, this was a let down. We went to dine, not dance, and the music was so loud as to make conversation challenging. The food was OK. Gnocchi in truffle sauce, had no taste of truffles and the cream sauce was VERY heavy.

The ambiance at Norah is incredibly romantic. Unfortunately, we were seated right next to the kitchen door, which opens frequently. It was as if someone was shining a flashlight in our faces every 30 seconds because it was so much brighter inside the kitchen. To make matters worse, we sat at our table for nearly 10 minutes without anyone coming to talk to us. When she did finally come by, our server was obviously overwhelmed and provided lackluster, rushed, impersonal, and inadequate service. After we paid our bill, we asked the hostess to speak to a manager. In some sort of very obvious con game, the hostess brought our server to speak with us, the very person we were trying to complain about. She greeted us with, "Oh it's you....," and she couldn't remember what table we were sat at, despite her dropping off our paid bill 60 seconds earlier.

The food was delicious. The space is lovely. But I probably won't return and I CERTAINLY will NOT recommend.

The food was fantastic (especially the cornbread and truffle gnocchi) but unfortunately the service was subpar. Our server was not attentive at all and the timing of the dishes left something to be desired. The two of us ordered 5 different dishes and they all came out at almost the same time. I was taking the last bite of the dish in front of me (my fork was literally on the plate) and the busser came over right at that moment to ask if I was done so he could clear the plate (clearly I wasn't). We felt rushed and were very disappointed with the service but the food is definitely worth it. Delicious!

The best food I’ve had in a while! The hostess seated my friend, as the other two of us were severely late. They were so accommodating. I didn’t order anything but an entree, which was delicious! And all the appetizers including a salad that my waiting friend ordered for us were outstanding! I love Norahs!

We came here for Valentine's Day and enjoyed it immensely. It was the regular menu -- no prix fixe. The cornbread is indeed special and worth ordering. The homemade ricotta is also delicious. The food all had special, Mediterranean, North African tastes and I look forward to going back. The only reason I did not give a higher service rating is because they did not time the main courses well. I was brought my main course (gnocchi with truffle) way before the vegetable side dish, and then even longer before my husband's main course (pork chop). Everything was brought out by different people -- as if staff just pick up what they see on the line and bring it out regardless of the rest of the table. I wish they had brought everything out at once. Other than that, it was lovely evening, and I'm glad I live in the neighborhood and can go easily.

We waited over 30 minutes for our table when we had a reservation. Finally sat down and ordered our food. 15 minutes goes by and we are told they have no more of the entree I ordered so I had to order something else. Then another 15/20 minutes goes by and we’re told they have no more of the entree my friend ordered so he had to order something else. We asked to be comped something for the inconvenience and the waiter said he would comp our drinks...we all got iced teas and said that it’s basically flavored water. He then agreed to comp our appitizers after we argued a bit. The overall experience was frustrating. Not to mention there was a band playing that was extremely loud.

Ambiance was cute with the live music playing in the background. I went for a girls brunch, which I would typically recommend, however, the service was by far the worst I’ve ever experienced. I realize they may have been understaffed, but when it takes over an hour and half to receive simple appetizers like fries, I’d say there’s an issue. Took almost two hours for avocado toast and plain scrabbled eggs to be set on the table. Which, by the way, eggs were cold when delivered. Our server was kind enough to remove the items that took too long to be received. Overall the food was good and the ambiance was enjoyable, but I don’t know that I would go back.

Extremely disappointed with the seating, our table location within the restaurant was really bad! We were seated in the very back, dark corner, unable to enjoy any of the atmosphere or the interior design. Our server was great, knowledgeable and recommended good appetizers and main course. Cocktails were just ok.
