We took our God son to brunch for his birthday. We all ordered different items and everyone reported them to be excellent. We shared a bread pudding that was also a big hit.

Really had great service here and an excellent meal. Our seating was in the very back and it was certainly cozy but a tad to tight for my comfort. Can't fault Cafe Nola too much for that though as the food is great and the service efficient and professional. We received the wrong order and they quickly corrected the plate... More

We went there to celebrate a birthday. My husband ordered the sirloin steak Oscar (with crab, asparagus and potatoes.) I wanted a more tender cut, but liked the "Oscar" treatment for the tenderloin. I ordered it and they brought it nice and rare as I requested. My husband's steak was medium rare as he requested. We both took our first... More

As a long-standing Island resident I've been coming to Nola for decades. Depending on who owns it, cooks in it and serves in it, the restaurant's gone from meh, to great to terrible several times and now it's being hampered by uninformed, disinterested service and high prices. I recently ordered a seafood stew and asked the waitress, "Is there anything... More

Absolutely beautiful spot in Bainbridge and very convenient. Staff was amazingly attentive and friendly. The food "looks" fabulous but was really only "ok at best." A bit overpriced for the overall taste and upon returning I would probably get a burger or a sandwich because they looked delicious at nearby tables and the sourdough bread is AMAZING. The locals seem... More

We had a terrific lunch in beautiful Bainbridge Island. We were happy to see that Nola had a "little travelers" menu which drew us in and we were very pleased with our meal! Had a lovely Washington state rose and the crab salad. Husband had fish tacos which he raved about. The truffle fries were to die for- the perfect... More

Small place with not much of a view (or A/C), but the food is delicious. We especially enjoyed the bacon wrapped filet mignon and the seafood risotto special. Good selection of local wines. Our son has multiple food allergies and they were able to accommodate him with a specially cooked bacon wrapped filet mignon dish just for him. Really appreciate... More

The salads are always great and beautiful, I am particularly fond of the polenta croutons they sometimes have on the menu. Lovely staff and friendly servers. They are great for dinner, too!
