We have had the steak here before and it was fabulous, but we stuck to pasta and pizza this time, and it was pretty blah

This experience was a mess from start to finish. I had booked reservations for a group of 6 for 8:30 PM and we were only seated at 8:50, after having to flag someone down to let them know we had been waiting at the front for 20 minutes without anyone acknowledging us. We were then seated without any menus, which we asked for on three separate occasions before we were finally brought them (this was after the THIRD server had come to take our order and realized we didn't have any menus). While taking our order, the server was acting really strange. He literally drop kicked the pen he was writing with out the open back door, in the middle of taking our order. We found that to be really unprofessional and also why are you littering, it's 2019?? He also seemed to not like the fact that we were not ordering starters, as he made a face each time we said no when he asked us. Maybe that's why we never saw him again and a new server took over? The food then took forever to come out, which of course was cold by then. We had ordered a pizza which was not cut for us into slices. When we asked one of the servers if they could cut it for us, he offered us a steak knife and said we could cut it ourselves. No-one checked on us during dinner and after we said no to dessert they literally disappeared for so long. Not to mention, when I made the reservations I had said it was for a birthday and once again, nothing was acknowledged. We had to flag someone down to bring us our bill, which was divvied up wrong and had to be sent back (another wait). And then after the correct bills were distributed, no-one came back with a machine. We had to wait again until we finally asked one of the chefs to find a server who could bring a machine. By far one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. It's funny because the food was actually not too bad; however, the service just ruined the entire thing. I will not be returning back here and will be sure to tell others not to waste their time.

The wine and apps were delicious. Great service and amazing atmosphere. The branzino was bland and needed more seasoning. Peach cobbler was a treat. Will definitely come back!

Our server told us only the items from the menu that were vegetarian while the server next to our table was flexible and was suggesting dishes that were not in the menu. Our server also suggested wrong ingredients on items that we ordered on his suggestion.

I have been to this restaurant before and it has always been good with a lot of vegetarian options. This time, this server was horrible. Also, they didn’t acknowledge our notes on the reservation of birthday and being vegetarian. We had to tell them that we are vegetarian

Both times I’ve been here, I’ve had to wait at least 45 minutes until we were served water... it was ridiculously slow, and I was considering leave.

It’s too bad, the ambiance of the restaurant is beautiful, and the food is great.... it’s the service that ruined the experience.

Not a good experience. They did not know how to manage the gift card we had and had initially implied that the issue was ours. After a prolonged period of time, it was straightened out and apologies issued. As regards the food, it was mediocre compared to the last 2 visits we had there over a span of two years. Overall, not a very pleasant experience.

Wine glasses smelled dirty. Bar tender couldn’t figure out how to make a basic drink. Olives were good. Bread Tasted stale and remained on the plate… In my opinion that dinner was not worth $50 let alone $110.

Everything was great except for the pastas. Portions were small and taste wasn’t great. I would have expected more because everything else was so delicious.
I would go back though. Cute place.

While the food tasted good, there was not nearly enough of it. I went for summerlicious and the portion sizing left me very hungry after, and I am not a big eater. To make a decent sized portion, it should have been double. What we got was a tasting menu. The service was also incredibly slow.

We visited on a Sunday and were given a 50% off wine list that is only for Wednesday. We asked the waiter and then he told us the actual prices were twice as much, but never explained why we were given that wine list in the first place and acted like it was a routine thing for him.
We ordered from both regular and Summerlicious menu but the overall quality of the food was mediocre at best. The yellow fin tuna was soggy. The grilled seafood was overcooked tasteless. I would not recommend to try the Summerlicious menu at all because the food was awful.
This is our third visit and it was disappointing.

I booked Noce for summerlicious 2019. The place is very cozy with a modern & contemporary finish. Our experience was average due to limited menu options . While I enjoyed my all 3 course meals [cornish hen and pistachio dessert were just remarkable :)], the other 2 girls with me were heavily disappointed. Both of them preferred vegetarian meals, and the menu did not offer any good selections for vegan/vegetarian people. On top of it, the appetizer they received was basically a watermelon , cold puree soup, called zuppa (Huge disappointment - lacked taste, very minimal). For mains they could only choose from plain spaghetti w olive oil and tomatoes or a Pizza (which we thought would be okay), but we saw the dish served to other customers, and all tables seemed to dislike the fact that pizza had this long, long beans (which looked like serpents) basically spread on the pizza. It was straight No. Very off-putting. Spaghetti was also very bland and had no taste.

Drinks - They did not had 1 out of 4 drinks on summerlicious menu, so again, limiting the choice.

I want to write the review because I want to share the experience of everyone under my reservation. I felt bad because they did not like it at all (except the dessert), and it was not worth for the $33 a meal .
I would recommend the chefs to take a look at current menu and revise it, to cater to wider audience.

The servers were helpful and responsive. I would go back if I see more options on menu !

Arrived at 8:00 pm with reservation, waited until 8:35 to be seated. No one asked if we want a glass of water or something else in the meantime. The appetizer came fairly soon, but then our patience was put to test, the wait time was about 45 minutes for the main course. Total chaos in respect to service. The food was nothing to write home about. Will never go back.

30+years rockin Queen and Walnut. Noce delights with an evolving menu that reinvents and evolves staying fresh and on trend. The place was packed with the trio of rooms accommodating everyone from groups quite large and small to couples on dates or just out for a night. Millennials to long-time clients. The place is welcoming with a buzzy vibe and great interesting food. Many plates are cooked over the large open wood burning fire. Delicious raw plates. Smoky meats. Edgy cocktails. Attentive service. A glamorous night on Queen West!

This was the second time I have been to Noce the first time I proposed to my fiancé so I had too many nerves to fully enjoy my experience. However bringing her back for Valentines, I was extremely happy. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious. Brittany and I will definitely continue to come back!

The home made tagliatelle dish was excellent and service attentive. The ice cream dessert was ho-hum and the restaurant much too noisy for conversation. I would not return or recommend because of the noise level which reduces the overall value of the experience.

We went for Winterlicous. The staff accommodated our late arrival and adjusted the food for nut allergy (if only I spoke Italian and knew that Noce means Walnut!). The food was amazing - I felt we got great value for a winterlicous menu. They also had an amazing wine selection. Staff were friendly and professional and the service was great. We would definitely go back!

We went to Noce for our father's 83rd birthday. He is in a wheelchair and access was easy. The restaurant staff was most accommodating. We got the Winterlicious menu and it was delicious. The Noce salad involved romaine, walnuts, mustard and blue cheese dressing. Divine! The Char was cooked to perfection. The dessert was not too sweet, with complex flavors. A really first-rate dining experience. Also, the wine which my sister chose, was amazing. Italian Cab-Merlot blend. Soft, subtle, yet full and ripe. All in all, a wonderful way to celebrate. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. They love their restaurant, the food, and the wine. It shows. As General MacArthur once said, "I shall return!"

I wish I could give this restaurant 6 stars! It is perfection all the way.

We arrived to a warm and friendly greeting and realized later that he would be our wonderful waiter, Brice.

Small restaurant but the seating was not tight and our table had a view of bundled up pedestrians on Queen St. as well as the open woood-burning oven which added to the warm ambience of the place.

The food was amazing. The attention to detail in the presentation on the plate was matched by service by Brice at the table. The veal was cooked to perfection and when I couldn't locate the Brussel sprouts on the plate Brice was there in a flash to explain they were the slivers that looked like they had been grilled! Talk about over the top.

So worth the drive from Ajax. You must go.
