“Excellent menu; unhurried service; lively crowd”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Three of us shared dinner at Nopa early on Wednesday evening. The restaurant rapidly filled within 15 minutes of my arrival. The couple joining me were delayed by traffic so I had time to enjoy a cocktail before they arrived. The hostess and wait staff graciously adjusted to the late arrivals and we shared an incredible meal prefaced by cocktails; warm marinated olives; goat cheese, pickled beets, and crostini; young Kale, toasted Hazelnuts, tangelo ,and pecorino; wood roasted black cod, green lentils, bacon, brussels sprouts and spiced chickpeas; and steak frite. We had a wonderful, unhurried meal. Everyone around us was having a great time. We finished the evening with ice cream at a neighborhood market several doors away.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

This is a lovely restaurant & has a great lively atmosphere. The food is also very good, We had no reservation & sat at the bar & had a drink while we waited for a table. You can also eat at the bar or at a large communal table. Staff were friendly & attentive. I had a beef burger here which was the best I've ever eaten it had great flavor we also had the squab which was very flavorsome too. There is a great atmosphere here and you could sit & drink wine here all night!

“All-time favorite”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

After 18 years in SF, this place is my clear favorite. Since it opened (how many years ago now?), NOPA has been consistently fabulous. The people are perky and hip and friendly, and you'll pay $25 for a glass of wine without blinking because it's fabulous and organic and unfiltered and you'll never find anything like it anywhere else. The burger is the best in SF. Always a special, elegant experience that doesn't have to break the bank.

“Excellent food, service and lively atmosphere.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

My husband had dinner here our first night while on vacation in SF. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, very busy, yet we were able to have conversation. The food was excellent and service was great.

“Great farewell brunch at Nopa”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Dined here with friends on our last day holidaying in San Francisco - only regret is not finding this place earlier. Excellent selection of food available and some pretty good Bloody Mary drinks too. Service was friendly and knowledgable and the food really good. A definite recommendation.
