I love it here! – I have been out of the country for a while and found this great new restaurant that i just need other people to know about! Noble food & wine!! I have been wanting to go somewhere new and i am a HUGE wine fan and this place is just AMAZING. Great selection of terriffic wines. We were in the restaurant practically all night sampling different kinds! The food was a perfect pairing and the staff couldn't have been nicer to us. I absolutely recommend this restaurant.
Good place – I found the restaurant through citysearch when looking for restaurants in Soho. I have to say that i am a little surprised at some of the reviews. The downstairs dining area is lovely. It is below street level, but i dont see why then it would be compared to a basement. The food was great. I had the short ribs and my friend had the chicken. both were really great. I am kind of surprised at the reviews for the food as everything we had from the salad, entrees, to desert was very tasty.
NOT VeRY gOod – Went there a few days ago and was terribly disappointed with both food and service. The decor is sort of weird and stuffy. Maybe with better ventilation they can fix this basement feel to it.
My girldfriend and I were the only ones there a few nites ago and I can see why: the food is really subpar. My steak was chewy and the fish my girlfriend had was soggy (I hope they're not using frozen stuff for lack of business).
Ayway: when in Rome, do as the Romans. When in Chinatown, eat Chinese!
Best new bar in Nolita – I went into Noble this past Friday after a harrowing, loud, garrish experience at R Bar with some colleagues. The bar was quiet, dark, and had hot brunette behind the bar - all good in my book. It is nice to finally have a quiet haven in the neighborhood that can pour you a stiff drink and feed you food not usually found in these parts. Didn't get a chance to try anything off of the menu as we came in a little late - but I will definitely return and have already recommended it to friends. I'm usually leery of empty bars on a Friday night, but this turned out to be a pleasant suprise and I hope it is quite a while before the hipster riffraff take it over.
Perfect Valentine's Day – Since I had a perfect experience here, I feel compelled to defend this place! The service, from start to finish, was impeccable. The host was friendly and gracious, the waitress was efficient and very nice; even the bus boys were friendly! I liked the space a lot: kind of a sunken basement with dark wood paneling and high ceilings (although this led to strange acoustics). The lighting was perfect and romantic. The dining area was not large, yet you didn't feel like you were eating on top of other diners. Interesting and diverse clientele. The food was a bit overpriced for what it was, but it was tasty, nonetheless - especially the meaty crabcakes and bass. The wine list was impressive and had tastes and prices for everyone. Lastly, our check was brought out by a runner before the dessert we had ordered; our waitress got a bit upset and gave us the (heavenly) bittersweet tart for free. A perfect meal! I hope they stick around and can overcome some of the bad press they've gotten. Ignore the bad reviews and give it a try please!
Zagat's Top 10 WORST Restaurants of 2007 – I have to agree with Zagat's on this one.
One of the worst experiences I've ever had. PERIOD. The so-called dining-room feels like a basement, no ventilation whatsoever. And the food is mediocre at best. Maybe the management should consider converting this space into a chinese take-out place, who knows?
I don't understand all the bad reviews – I went here on Friday night because I could get a last minute reservation. I had some concerns after reading the negative reviews. My experience here was so different from the other reviews on this site, I felt compelled to write my own.
This restaurant was lovely. The food was quite good and the wine was amazing. The server was really pleasant, friendly, and helpful. The only thing that was weird was how empty it was. However, that wasn't such a bad thing -- so many restaurants in Soho are annoying and too crowded.
I really hope this place survives as a low-key neighborhood restaurant with a great wine list. The other reviews are so off the mark they seem mean-spirited.
Very Disappointing – I was very disappointed with my experience at Noble for a myriad of reasons. Aside from the wine, this place has virtually nothing going for it. The decor was dark and uninspired. I had the pork chop which was dry and simply boring on a somewhat boring menu. The server was efficient but untrained on the menu and wine which I found frustrating. I also felt claustrophobic in the dark hole they call the dining room. With so many other choices in the city, I say bypass Noble.
Very Poor Service, Very Poor Food – Yikes! Please don't bother with this overpriced pretentious mess. Our party waited for one and a half hours to get our food last night, we didn't even get bread or water during the wait. And once we did get our meals, most were disappointing and unmemorable creations lacking flavor and finesse. Who needs to pay these obnoxiously inflated prices for overcooked and underflavored food, when there are many high quality restaurants within a 5 minute walk from here? We were here for a birthday party and the birthday girl left in tears. Simply awful.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS – Please don't waste your time here. There are no Lafites and Margeauxs as promised. The staff is ridiculously ignorant on what they DO have, and the food is probably the most inept around. Go to nearby Peasant or Public - and for the same price, you get a whole lot more.
Its shocking food and service could still be so bad in this day and age!
