Trip Advisor asks for details -- what's to say? Nora, one of the founders and the heart and soul of Nora's, finally decided to hang up her toque. Nora's was organic and delicious and now it is gone. Those of us who have eaten there...More

We enjoyed our evening at Restaurant Nora on their last night. Everything was perfect—the food, the staff and Nora herself. We will certainly miss this neighborhood gem and Nora's fabulous vision. Thank you, Nora.

Nice cozy atmosphere with top unlit you dishes. We had the cod and ribeye steak both well prepared and delicious. The peach pie desert was outstanding . Did the price fix menu which given the quality of the dishes was the way to go.

Unfamiliar with the reputation of the restaurant, our party decided upon it as it was close to the hotel where we were staying. Though it was a week night, it was quite full, but we were given a table immediately. The decor was stylish and...More

Having just been to dinner at Nora for the second time in years, the things I noticed were the quality of food, the service and the memories of each plate didn't change from the first time, close to ten years ago. The atmosphere is very...More

The restaurant advertises that it is 100% organic. The food choices looked decent and the food was pretty average. If you like Diet Coke you won't be able to order it here as they only have organic sodas.
