Noir Ratings and Reviews
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!)
Decided to try this spot during restaurant week. Don't know where they get the bread but it was so good I easily could have filled up on it (which would have been a mistake). I had the Bolognese - so yummy. It's small and loud (there were a couple of groups there that day and we had to repeat ourselves to be heard). I really enjoyed the food and the service and that's most important. I'll definitely go again.
Upon entering we were welcomed and offered two different table options. The hostess said we could sit where we felt most comfortable, which we appreciated. The service was timely, efficient, accommodating and extremely friendly. The entire staff was great.
The ambiance was perfect. It feels like a local restaurant where locals, families and tourists can all congregate and bond over great food and drinks.
The food was outstanding. Some of the best we have eaten in a while. The mole frites were out of this world. We ordered a second basket of bread to enjoy every last bit of the flavorful broth! Our entrees were all delicious.
There were so many great food options that we will be returning to dine at Noir.
We come here for the artichoke. I would guess that most of the servers are family members who are working for them; very nice but not great at their jobs (but not terrible). The service isn't great but it's ok. The food is VERY good. The wine is barely drinkable. Don't understand how an Italian restaurant doesn't even have one good red wine to drink. I would like ONE good option, even if I had to pay $14-15 for it. The wine list needs help, and the service is mediocre at best. The prices are similar to a fancy restaurant, which is strange given the above, but their food is good.
A group of four of us went to Noir for their restaurant week lunch special - $15 for an appetizer, main course, and dessert! I had the Cheese Steak Potstickers (out of this world - definite must!), the Chicken Italiano Sandwich (tasty and filling), and the Limoncello Cake (also super super good!). The appetizer and dessert were definitely my favorite. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Wouldn't hesitate to come again!
Noir is a very typical, small South Philadelphia bar with a restaurant attached. The food is excellent, the service is friendly. It's a step back in time. Very bare bones, reasonably priced and casual. The pasta was fresh and the gravy had chunks of tomatoes in it. My pasta fra diablo pescatore had big scallops, calamari, clams, mussels and shrimp. The antipasto to start is easily enough for 2 people.
All around, a great Italian find.
Noir hostess was friendly. All the wait staff were as well. The food was excellent, especially the preordered stuffed artichoke and the veal chop. The lemoncello cake was exceptional. The specialty cocktails we ordered were made well and the wine was both good and reasonable. Looking forward to a return visit!
Went for lunch; they were "supposed to be closed" as they were in the middle of switching shifts, but because we made a reservation, they stayed open for us - which was nice. We were the only party in the restaurant at 3pm. The bartender/waiter was very nice. Beer selection was wanting (no Ales at all), but cocktails were good, and food came out quickly and was very tasty.
Service was a littel chaotic and slow, but the Manager (or owner) did keep checking on us to make sure we were ok. There was a real South Philly energy.
The food choices were solid with a lot of Classic Italian-American dishes. All but one of the ladies in our group liked our entrees. And the roasted beet salad was very good. The wine list is reasonable.
Noir is an awesome restaurant and has amazing food! The chicken pot pie is to die for. I also enjoyed the cheesesteak pot stickers. I can't begin to say enough about the service. Our waiter, Chuck, was incredible. He was helpful in providing recommendations and highlighting the most popular dishes. He was prompt with our drink and appetizer orders. Chuck was also very friendly and sociable, which always makes for a better dining experience!
