“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner here. We started with the Korean short ribs, which were pretty good, and then ordered the salmon and lamb chops. The salmon was good but not amazing. The lamb chops however were fantastic. The entire plate was absolutely delicious. The lamb, garbanzo beans, eggplant, and plums were all flavorful and cooked perfectly. The waiter was nice and helpful and made a great cocktail.

“Wonderful little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had dinner at Nora's on our way through Hood River. The restaurant is darling, the menu changes daily and is wonderfully creative. I had the grilled salmon with succotash of zucchini, corn and green beans with a delicious heirloom tomato salad. Hubby had the grilled scallops and chanterelle mushrooms and a gigantic burger cooked in duck fat. He said it was like "butter". The best burger he has ever eaten. The service was fantastic as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, you will too!

“Consistently yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We ate breakfast here three days in a row. It was outstanding each time. The menu is very unique with dishes ranging from Israeli to Bombay.

The eggs benedict, cajun style, were some of the best we have ever had. The pancakes were heavenly.

Service is spot on the place just feels comfortable. While there are plenty of choices in Hood River you won't go wrong with this locally-sourced eaterly.

“Good, interesting food, prompt service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We heard from Tracy at Naked Winery in Hood River that Nora's Table was a cool, laid back restaurant with tasty gourmet food without the high prices. He was right. First we had these bread sticks that came with the meal that were excellent (cumin, nigella seeds, poppy seeds on them etc). My wife had the lamb and I had the seafood curry with naan (see pics). Both were great. Next time we're in Hood River (we plan to move there eventually) we'll head back to Nora's. Nice homey little restaurant.

“Good Food. Terrible Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had 7:15 reservations on a Tuesday night. When we arrived there were 4 tables. One with 8 people, one single person and two tables of 4. We were seated promptly and our orders were taken quickly. Our drinks arrived along with the soup in about 10 minutes and then we waited and waited and waited. After 45 minutes we flagged down our waitress and asked why everyone else had bread, and we did not. We also asked when our dinner would be served. She told us that the cook was plating our dishes but she would bring us some bread. The bread sticks came and they were unremarkable. And we waited again for 20+ minutes. When food started be delivered to a table that came in way after us I stopped another waitress and asked to see someone about our dinners. All of a sudden two of our meals came out and then we waited another 5-7 minutes for the other dinners to arrive. Our waitress did not deliver them and avoided us until the end of the meal. It was obvious that she forgot to put in our order but refused to acknowledge or apologize. The salmon special was perfectly cooked and the burgers were very good but we could not wait to eat and leave which was almost 9pm at this point. There was not an obvious manager to talk with and no one on staff seemed to want to deal with the service failure we experienced.
