Went with friends a couple of weeks ago & sat on the patio for a nice dinner with drinks. We were all so impressed, this is a long time coming for Mankato. Hands down the best place to go for a nice, delicious meal ..... . menu had great selections & prices were very, very fair for the quality, taste & nice portion sizes. I will be back, time after time. Side note: went to another downtown establishment recently (Starts with N) before a play and that experience was so disappointing compared to Nolabelle . . . bad service, food & drinks less than mediocre and price way to high. NOLABELLE, 5 stars to you all the way, keep up the good work!More

Got take-out there in early October, ordering about 10 items for a number of people. Very pleased overall. Fresh, high-quality, interesting items. The best were the goat cheese balls, arugula salad, mushroom and onions side, risotto side, and truffle chips. The penne arrabiatta was the...only disappointing item, too light on the sauce and with more of a black pepper than red pepper/garlic flavor. Interior of restaurant is pleasant - lots of windows. Some booth and table seating. I suspect it's LOUD if it's full - concrete floors, tile walls. Three diners are vegetarian and we found plenty of options. Will go back when in Mankato again.More

We have been patiently waiting for Nolabelle to open and the wait was worth it! Amazing experience from the staff to the food, cocktails were an added bonus! Ask Alexa to describe their dessert assortment for you, it will be impossible to choose one! Hands...down I cannot wait to revisit Nolabelle as I have a long list of meals I cannot wait to enjoy.More

Finally had the opportunity to try out the new place in town and we definitely weren’t disappointed. Had the schnitzel cubana, the apple arugula salad, and the roasted brussel sprouts. They were all fabulous. My sister lives in New York City and eats at tons...of 5 star restaurants there. She was very impressed with the Quality of food and the menu choices. In her words, Mankato really needed a place like this. We are looking forward to return trips to try the other delicious looking menu items, and are looking forward to Saturday or Sunday brunch As well!More

Amid a pandemic, a shining star has opened in Mankato. Everything from the location to the decor is perfect. And then you have to decide what to order from a super enticing food and drink menu. The small plates, like the Charred Shishito peppers or...the Burrata Plate, are great to share or indulge for one. I highly recommend the weekend brunch and the mimosas flights. 5-Stars.More

From the staff, to the space and the food, any customer could tell that every aspect of Nolabelle was thought of and done to perfection with love. After traveling for many days this stop was exactly what my family and I needed; we were greeted...with kindness and warmth by each employee and the owner herself. You can tell that hospitality is a priority here. Nolabelle sources local-fresh food and every item on the menu sounded inviting - our Arugula Apple Salad, Tomato Bisque, and Walleye didn’t disappoint. Each dish was light, fresh but full of flavor and had a unique twist that made it stand out from your regular American dinner in the best way. If you’re looking for dessert, the chocolate gounache cake is the perfect cherry on top to a wonderful dinner - and it’s gluten free too! We easily decided that it was our best meal on our nearing week long trip and were longing to bring it back home with us... so we went back for brunch the next day! Once again greeted with the same warmth and kindness as the night before - the mornings here have such a bright energy that you can’t help but smile. We opted for Avocado Toast, Pain Perdu and a Classic Breakfast. Needless to say it was jaw dropping - hands down the best take on french toast we have ever had, the touch of citrus gave the dish, once again, a freshness and flavor palette unlike we’ve had at any other restaurant. The avocado toast was topped with a lime aioli that enhanced and lightened the flavors of each aspect of the toast without being overbearing. And the classic breakfast was just fantastic - they took a simple egg and bacon breakfast and turned it into a meal you can’t forget. If you have the chance to visit, please don’t hesitate. And be sure to make a reservation just in case, although they are new in town they are already a hit with visitors and locals alike. We definitely won’t forget our visit here and will be back again the next time we travel through Mankato.More

I have been looking forward to going to Nolabelle from the moment I first heard about it several months ago. Our first visit did not disappoint! My husband and I tried three different cocktails and they were all delicious. All of the ingredients were fresh...and they looked beautiful. We tried three different appetizers, our favorite was the burrata plate. We shared the braised short ribs for our meal, they weren’t really what we thought we were getting but they were delicious all the same. We can’t wait to go back to try other menu options!More
