Abit too noisy, however some staff were friendly, some weren't so much. Food was nice. Reasonable for what you'd get. The place was a great place to take pictures

Overall enjoyable, however to advertise three lamb cutlets as a rack of lamb along with the price to match was a tad on the steep side.

Another lovely evening will amazing food was had at Noel’s on Saturday night. The only downside was the extremely loud dance music that most modern restaurants seem to insist on playing these days. Not adverse to background music being played but that type of music and played at that volume is unnecessary

Wow! What a find. We wanted a nice pre theatre meal , Noels surpassed our expectations. The food is beautifully presented and very high quality. Perfect calamari, pork belly was meltingly tender, sea bass cooked to perfection. Desserts scrummy and the cocktails!!! Had a pornstar martini which was delicious and decorated with miniature rosebuds. Service excellent. Restaurant was quiet but we were there early. Will definitely return. Thank you

The reviews of Noel's are very well deserved. Upon arrival the staff were extremely welcoming and courteous and offered service that I think is always the mark of a great restaurant by perfectly balancing attentiveness and not being intrusive.

One problem that did present itself was choosing what to eat. Myself and my partner could quite easily have eaten everything on the menu, which is unusual, and we weren't disappointed with the quality when it arrived.

The drinks menu is superb with a wide range of choices to accompany any meal. The location is in area of Birmingham that is very easy to get to but feels a million miles away from a city center, and would be a great place to while away a few hours visiting the surrounding bars.

Sunday brunch with Prosecco was really good value . Great service and no shortage of Prosecco. It was great to have a choice of 4 dishes on the 3 courses. Was never rushed and was great to relax with a nice brandy and cocktail after the meal. Will definitely be coming back.

The service was very mixed and the waitress found it difficult to understand our order. We ordered an alcohol free beer but a gluten free beer came, when we brought this to the attention of the waitress she said that they had no alcohol free beer although it was on the menu.
The food was poorly seasoned and generally uninteresting. However, the steaks were very good. I also thought it was very expensive for a below average meal.

Lovely meal, ambience and service! Food marked down only very very slightly due to the ‘alternative’ style dessert, cheesecake was a jade coloured dome 🤷‍♀️ but everything else was first class,
