Noir Ratings and Reviews
My husband and my sister took me to Noir for my birthday lunch. It was a quiet Tuesday in the Summer, so we had the place mostly to ourselves. The bartender/waiter was very friendly and helpful with cocktail and menu selections. I ordered three appetizers instead of an entree (hey, it was my birthday!). My absolute favorite was the stuffed artichoke...it was delicious! I also enjoyed the rice balls and the poutine (without the smoked meat). My husband loved his appetizer (eggplant lasagna). He and my sister both ordered the fried meatball sandwich and declared them to be just like my (Italian) mother's fried meatballs!
It was a wonderful birthday lunch!!
It pains me to give Noir such a low rating because the food was SO delicious. However, it was so noisy inside that it was impossible to talk to the person literally sitting beside you. I consider myself a foodie - as are the 5 other people with me - and I've never been in a restaurant so loud. I couldn't wait for dinner with friends to end so I could get out of there. It was unfortunate because we all agreed the food was great. The sausage, beans and brocoli rabe appetizer has a wonderful flavor. Lobster ravioli was very flavorful.
Very Comfortable atmosphere for lunch. Food healthy as well as hearty. portions perfect for lunch. Small intimate dining area. Waiter was attentive and on his game. Noise level high, but did not distract from meal. Highly recommend for casual as well as business eating.
Recommended by a friend who's local to the restaurant. Was well worth the visit! Great food and great service! It was our first time there. And, Colin made us feel welcomed as if we were regulars! Our meals were fantastic! Especially the veal chop. Probably the best I've ever had! If we're ever in the neighborhood again, we're sure to go back!
This was not my best experience in Passyunk Square. My friends and I were rushed (politely, generally) throughout our whole meal. From having our entrees served 5 minutes after our appetizers to having one of the servers noisily clean silverware at one of the adjacent tables, we did not enjoy the comfortable easy-going atmosphere we were hoping for. The food was OK, my friends enjoyed their pasta dishes, however my stuffed artichoke was greasy and swimming in a pool of water. There are so many nice restaurants in this area that this is not one that I will return to.
Lots of dishes to choose from and some may be prepared in a variety of ways like the veal medallions. My husband and I each had the Cesar salad, unfortunately - we learned they had run out of anchovies when we requested those - but the salads were still very good. My husband had the veal medallions prepared with Marsala sauce, and I had the lobster ravioli. The entrees were also quite good, and the portions were a nice size. The drinks were a generous pour as were the wines. Overall enjoyable and a good value!
Wonderful food, great ambiance. Noir has an eclectic menu. There were families, neighborhood people and a large birthday party--a nice, mixed atmosphere. The bar business picked up toward the end of our meal.
A beet salad was light & tasty, a nice balance of sharp, sweet and tangy.
The French onion soup was first rate, deeply flavored and rich. I tried poutine for the first time, and loved it! The braised pork shank was fantastic, succulent. It was beautifully presented and rendered, standing straight up on the plate, a sprig of rosemary rising out of the bone. I was able to pull the meat off with my fork. The braise did not dry out the meat, or make it stringy. Each chunk was full, deeply flavored. The demi sauce was perfect.
We stayed late, and did not feel rushed. I'll definitely be back again.
We dined for a friends birthday recently and were rather disappointed since the reviews were so great - Only time I would go back would be to sit at the bar for bar food. Food was just OK. Portions were huge which was nice but the main courses were just ok. Cheese Steak pot stickers were good. Eggplant appetizer quite salty and the artichoke bland. Chicken main course overcooked. Good wine prices and bar prices but food was just OK. Service though congenial was not good. There was only one waiter on staff so not his fault and there was a huge party. We had to call him over several times. Again, not his fault but when you expect a big crowd a waiter and one bus person was not enough.
I have eaten here many, many times. It is always up to my expectations. Donna, the hostess, is charming and very helpful. It doesn't hurt any when your husband is the chef and the restaurant is crowded. with diners waiting to enjoy a great meal. The chef makes the best chicken pot pie I have ever eaten. And the rest of the menu ain't too bad. Drinks and wine are on hand and cover the field. We were recently away for an extended vacation and at least a few times a week I would tell my wife that we were going to Noir upon our return. We did and I am a happy man!
We were at NOIR for the 3rd time in 10 days for Restaurant Week. We go at least three times every RW. The food is so good (the pastas are my favorite) and the triple Chocolate cake is so rich, I always bring half home. The atmosphere is a neighborhood bar vibe but the food is Italian via Montreal. (Look at the menu and you'll understand). Can';t wait for next RW (a year away.. darn!)
