    Doesn't measure up

    Simple, clean decor and pleasant waitress don't make up for the poor food. Menu all over the place should have been a clue. Couldn't even do meatballs and spaghetti right. Obviously won't be going back.

    Could be better

    I really try not to write bad reviews, because I know it is not easy to run a restaurant, but when I have a mediocre experience, I feel the need to share it with others. Went here with a discount and I am very glad that I did not pay full price for the food. The quality was definitely lacking, even for the kids menu (how can you mess up french fries and spaghetti and meatballs?). Granted, the prices here a bit less than most other restaurants, but that does not excuse the poor quality. Plus, it took a very long time for our food to come, and the waitress did not even bother coming over to apologize or let us know that it was on the way. Even if I get another discount, I probably wont' come back here.

    Great delivery!

    Excellent burger, mesclun salad, and chocolate cake. Everything was fresh, high quality, and very tasty.

    Great delivery!

    Very impressed with my turkey burger. It arrived and the bun was stacked separately from the burger very thoughtful as I hate it when it gets soggy.. Burger was grreat and not greasy at all. Salad that came with it was good and the side of balsamic dressing, delicious! Am thrilled to have a new delivery place. The man who took my order couldn't have been nicer and sent a 10 percent coupon to use on my next order. Bravo Bistro Nora. I am a picky person and will definitely be ordering from here again.

    One and done...

    I am always a little hesitant to try places that have a menu that's all over the place - if the restaurant itself is confused about their concept, I can imagine that their food will have similar issues. We were looking for a quick lunch, and were in the mood for steak frites. Bistro Nora popped up (whose name sounds french) and had solid reviews, so we decided to try it. But as I mentioned, the menu should have given it away. From taquitos to salmon, it has quite the mix. We asked how the steak was, and the server said, "no one has ever sent it back" (should have been a warning as well). But we went for it, and paid for our choice. The steak had an aftertaste that I couldn't pinpoint, and appeared to have been previously frozen, which should never happen. The fries were subpar, and we couldn't finish either of them (it's actually the first time I can remember not finishing a steak). My boyfriend thought it tasted like a minute steak. On the plus side, the place was very clean and the servers were nice. Maybe this is a good sandwich place, but all of your menu items should be of the same quality, so if this was any indication, I won't need to try their other items. Unfortunately, we won't be back. bummer, too, bc it's right down the street and we eat out regularly.

    Great Brunch Spot

    My friend and i have named this our go to brunch spot. Can't beat the two for one $4.95 drink special. I get the smoked salmon Benedict and my friend gets the regular Benedict. We love it. We always share a side of bacon. Great bacon which is a must for us. It's a newer place and definitely has room to grow. Hope other people discover it so it can stick around!

    Delivery only so far

    Been twice - loved the pulled duck sandwich. Gave 4.5 instead of 5.0 because the sweet potato fries could have tasted a bit less fried and I would love for the cauliflower side to taste more roasted. Hey - we've got a nice new place so I am really not complaining and I certainly will be back
