The location and inside were wonderful. The staff who looked after taking your coats and taking and serving the drinks orders were very good and attentive. The food was lovely, and could not ask for anything more, but this was let down by the service of the waiting staff. We had to ask on at least two occasions throughout the night for the staff to come and take our orders, for mains and then again for starters. But apart from this the premises, setting, decor and food were lovely, we will go back again and hopefully the service will be a better.

Staff were polite and courteous, the restaurants decor is stunning, clean, tidy and spacious.
Nice atmosphere and in a good location.

Good location, and a really nice atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the food/menu. Enjoyed the food that we had, and can't wait to return and sample something different from the menu.

As a new/ trendy new addition to Birmingham I was shocked at the lack of choice of vegetarian/ vegan options. There was one thing on the menu labelled vegan, which was a side of potatoes. I hadn't checked this before I booked as I assumed that there would at least be one main I could eat - even if it meant taking something off it.

The place was fairly empty when we arrived at 9:30 which is completely fine, however we were seated at a tiny two table right next to the till/ waitress point so felt like we were constantly being interupted (not physically but the awareness of someone being behind me).

The service was good, they were attentive but not over bearing so I can't fault that at all.
The food we did have was lovely, just a shame we couldn't have had more - we ended up with 2 starters and a few sides.

Inside interior is lovely and finished to a high standard - location is also great as your right next to the mailbox and the cube so plenty of bars to move onto after eating.

Excellent restaurant where you can get hands down the best steak in Birmingham. The setting is decorated so elegantly and attention to detail is spot on, very kind and attentive staff from the minute you walk through the door. New place for me for sure

We waited for an hour and 10 mins for just our starters. I didn’t enjoy my mains, the chicken was under cooked and bland (maybe rushed due to knowing our starters were delayed.)
Can’t comment on dessert, we skipped it.

Amazing food and great ambiance! Beautifully decorated and perfect for any occasion. Me and my friends had a wonderful afternoon. The only downside to it was the waitress that seated us and took our order was an absolute delight, however her shift must've come to an end part way through our meal and we felt quite ignored by the other waitress when it came to paying; she just didn't seem too interested.

Stunning restaurant paired with faultless customer service! The dishes were full of flavour and bursting with freshness... somthing rare in restaurants now. I had the Chargrilled rib eye 10/10...AMAZING. My other half had the chicken Soulvaki... felt like we’re back in Crete - just how they make back home....Really glad I came across this new restaurant! Looking forward to coming again!

This was our first time at this restraunt, we were greeted with a nice smile and shown to our table by a very pleasent member of staff. We were told of the specials menu and left too it for a short time. Our food arrived and both the starter and the main were very well put together, nice touches but not too cheffy! Nice size portions, piping hot and served with good grace. The sweet menu was a treat, two items came out wrong but this was put right with a gracious apology, its not about if something goes wrong but how it's put write that counts.
We were even presented with a celebration plate, from a simple conversation where we mentioned it was our anniversary, we had not pre arranged this and it was a great little touch.
Overall the venue is really clean, smartly presented with great staff.
Thank you.... We will be back 👍🏽

I wasn't sure what to expect but Noel's was nothing but impeccable. The atmosphere was intimate and social at the same time. The service was the right amount of attentiveness. The food tasted delicious, was the perfect temperature and the right amount for the money. Whether you're looking for a romantic night out or a catch up with friends, Noels is the perfect way to spend your evening.

I think it's fair to say in all jobs we can make mistakes, and I'm very acoomidating in all areas. But having booked a table on monday evening, iour experience ended in upset and frustration in respects to Noel's Bar. We can forgive the waitresses who smashed the persecco glass over the young gentleman, but no offer of dry cleaning for a very expensive suite after a graduation was quite poor. However, the starters were satisfactory and were on time which helped build up on a harmless accident. Yet having spoken to the waitress about ordering mash potato was just brushed under the table instead we were given boiled patato- after she would speak to the chef. Perhaps miss communication?. The mains were not brought out all together- intact there was at least a 15 min delay on the chickpea burger (which was disgusting). There was an apology from the waitresses but nothing from the chef.... though it was taken off the order it still didnt make up for sitting at the table waiting on a empty stomach with others who waited as ther food went cold waiting. The restaurant did try to bring a birthday and graduation cake out (however it was also disappointing.

Overall we are realy sad. It was meant to be a big occasion and was spoiled by the chef and service. The chef we saw laughing on the way out with no apology. Overall we paid over £160 for what?..... we ended up getting a take away on the way back which was more worthwhile. As a beautiful restaurant its clear that it's not busy due perhaps to similar experiences. We are not people do moan and honestly believe the waitress did her personal best to rectify the mistakes . However it wasnt good enough.
