“NOtaBLE - good food..not a place with ambiance or quiet conversation”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The food is excellent but when it's a full house then it's quite loud and not very conducive to conversation if that's what you're there for as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you're all about the food then it is worth it but a reservation is highly recommended.

“Lovely meal but maybe overhyped ........”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I had the prime rib which was wonderfully tender but some more sauce would have been nice. My wife's mussels were very nice, server was friendly and knowledgeable and overall it was very nice. Not sure I didn't expect more but very good none the less.

“Worth the wait...”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

This restaurant doesn't accept reservations once the limited tables are booked up, but it's worth it to go and put your name down for a table for the evening. They give out a handful of tables with no reservation on the day-off. The food is very well presented and high quality products are used, you can see this in both the presentation and the taste. Often runs out of a particular item depending on time of night (yes it's that good!). They have a diverse drink menu with very nice and unique cocktails. The dessert; salted chocolate cake is heavenly. Ambiance is very lively and pleasant...and without the drive into downtown.

“Great gluten free choices!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have eaten at NOtaBLEs a few times now and every single meal has been outstanding. They have a wide variety of gluten free options and always ask if it is an allergy or a preference when you place your order.

Their monthly burger special is always outstanding - the Meatloaf burger was especially incredible!

The service is excellent and the prices are completely reasonable.

We will eat here again and again.

“Hiden Gem”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

NOtaBLE is a hidden gem outside of the downtown core which is most welcome as far as parking goes. Food is fabulous and innovative with obviously fresh ingredients used in everything. Service is excellent and the staff seem to enjoy their job which says a lot. Trendy but classy atmosphere is great for all occasions especially special occasion long leisurely dinners. Not a family restaurant, do not take young kids under 8, tables are close together and unless you have the rarest, quietest children in the world you will only ruin someone's evening out. Prices in line for type of establishment. Reservations recommended as this place is now extremely popular for all age groups.
