I've been to Chez Noelle before but for some reason never wrote a review. After dining there again last night that is an oversight that I knew needed to be immediately corrected. From the moment we entered, wine bags in hand, everything was just perfect. The wine was taken from us and we were asked if we wished it to... More

On a totally nondescript block, in an area best described as 'industrial', sits a wonderful 'find' if a restaurant that is edging toward 30 years old can be called a 'find', sits Chez Noelle. Classic French food, prepared in an intelligent, professional manner-what a surprise. If the location was on the left bank, it would be an institution. Nothing will... More

Poor food. poor service. Obnoxious owner. High prices. Uninteresting room. We stopped going a long time ago. None of our friends go any longer.

I've been a resident of Port for 33 years and they have been here before I moved here. I guess they must be doing something right. I never had a bad meal there. The service is impeccable and the food is great. The only problem is that you would never expect a restaurant of that caliber to be located in... More

An older clientele in a place from the past, yet clean, warm, friendly and excellent food. High quality preparation, excellent wine list and warm service. Would certainly go back again.

I was really in the mood for the Coq Au Vin, but it was not available that day, and since the menu is so limited, I had a hard time finding something else to eat. The salad was good, the fish was good, the desserts were really good. The restaurant itself is a bit worn. We've been here before and... More

Chez Noelle has been around forever. Sure, the location is a bit odd (across the street from auto body shops) and some might say the decor is a bit tired. But who cares?! The food and service are excellent. The menu changes seasonally. Don't miss the Coq au Vin over the silkiest mashed potatoes and the apple tarte tatin. They... More
