“The prices seem a bit high at first sight but the size of mains makes up for it. You can be well sated with just a main if you’re normal hungry. Extra hungry might need to share an entree or two or save space for dessert. The service was great. The view was awesome. The only let down was the limited beer selection, you can’t order what’s available upstairs or downstairs.”- Katina Stef

“Absolutely excellent. The food is amazing with really great flavors. I loved the pumpkin tart. The wine was fantastic- asked for a recommendation and got some great wine choices that matched perfectly with my meal. The service was excellent, with my reservation able to be pushed back after we were running late and just great service staff in general. Expensive but worth every dollar.”- Brittany Bennett
The Noble Experiment
The Noble Experiment Laid out in a warming prohibition inspired setting is a plethora of inspiring environments, drinks, food & good times. When it comes to running a venue we approached it with the idea of something for everyone. They love a sense of camaraderie and friendship with their guests. To keep the dream alive they regularly host trivia, poker & club events in their hidden underground alcove (look for the bookshelf). Upstairs you can enjoy the chill vibes of old chesterfield couches dreaming of the perfect intimate evening with your loved ones or just a good read and glass of vino.

“Great bar- booked out the birdcage area for a small function. It was effortless to book in advance and communicate with the venue ahead of time, and then the experience there was great. Affordable food and drinks and nice service.”- Jilly Bean
