The restaurant advertises that it is 100% organic. The food choices looked decent and the food was pretty average. If you like Diet Coke you won't be able to order it here as they only have organic sodas.

This cozy restaurant has a wonderful menu and atmosphere for a romantic or business dinner. The food is outstanding, organic. Tucked away off busy streets. Try to make it there before she closes the restaurant this summer

Yes, the food was excellent, as was the service. Despite their efforts to accommodate us, I felt that table turn-over was driving the service.

I recently visited Restaurant Nora with my aunt. The restaurant is near Dupont Circle and is very easy to get to. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I had the scallops and my aunt had the cod. We both felt that the meals were the best we had eaten in quite some time. I usually feel like... More

It was a fabulous dinner at Cafe Nora on a Saturday night. The restaurant has valet parking. Unfortunate that the cafe is closing for business soon. The portions are small though and the prices are a pretty penny. Most of the wine bottles are in the expensive list. It is a good restaurant to try for special occasions. We were... More
