Noosa Bistro originally opened as Red Back Jack's in 1994 in Cleveland's Warehouse District. Red Back Jack's moved to Mentor, Ohio in 1997, and rebranded to Noosa Bistro in 2002. Noosa is a resort town in Queensland, Australia, and reflects the owner Rob Stanovsek's Australian heritage, while providing a taste of coastal paradise to Northeast Ohio. Noosa Bistro quickly became an instant staple for upscale-casual dining for locals and visitors alike, and built a dedicated following. Owners Rob and Susan Stanovsek served loyally to the Northeast Ohio public at this location for twenty years, before excitedly choosing to relocate to the Diamond Center in Mentor. This move marked a shift in greater accessibility and affordability, while still maintaining Noosa Bistro's inherent and expected culinary quality and exceptional service. The new location incorporates a broader menu, providing an ideal location for guests to catch a quick bite before going to see a movie at the Diamond Center Theatre, watch local sporting events at our modern and inviting bar- featuring craft beers, artisan cocktails, and fine wines- or enjoy a intimate date night in our contemporary dining areas.
Great food and service !
Food & service were great!!
Absolutely a great experience all around - Happy to see that Covid precautions were in place and enforced. Food and service were flawless
Great food, great wine. Great place to gather with friends and family.
We've been to Noosa several times and have enjoyed the food and ambiance each time.
Excellent. First time there. Liked the sanitizer on table too. Just need to resolve issue in women's restroom.
The food and service were both excellent. Ambiance was still nice even with covid precautions in place. We've been there before and we will go again!
My new favorite place!
Very good food and good service
We had a very good dinner experience. Great service and exceptional food. We are definitely coming back!
Food was great, as always! Service was excellent! Couldn't have asked for better! We used to go there regularly when they were on Mentor Ave., glad we finally went to their new location!
I would definitely dine at Noosa again. Excellent experience. Very covid compliant.
Great service thank you!
It was a great experience!
We celebrated a HS graduation lunch with 10 people. The food was excellent, decor beautiful, and solid service as well.
Everything was good but we never got our basket of bread
Everything was very good! I did have a big lump In My mashed potatoes, but at least I knew they were Homemade!
Good was great!! Service no so much. Waited 1/2 hour for our drinks after we ordered. Was done with our appetizers. When they finally came. Ordered 2 nd round. Waited longer but she was nice.. food was great!
Food was very good. Service was alright but little things missed. Water classes not refilled, no plates with appetizer. Had to use the bread plate. Dinner brought out before appetizer was finished. Felt very safe, met all COVID expectations.
Food and service was very good. We sat outside on a metal fenced area on the sidewalk facing parking lot. Not quite a 5 star ambiance but it was safe social distancing outdoors.
Obviously the restaurant wasn’t crowded because of Co-vid 19 food is always enjoyable at Noosa. Waiter was less than attentive however.
It is always good Noosa. That is on of our favorite places to go.
I had the butternut squash ravioli which was prepared magnificently! We shared the bruschetta appetizer which was loaded with toppings also very good.
Tables were boring. Service was slow. People around us got served quicker. Bread came late. My swordfish was excellent. My husband prime rib was just “ok”
We had a reservation but told there was a 15-20 minute wait time because the kitchen was behind. That happens. It was suggested we go to the bar area. The bar was packed and nothing even close to social distancing in the somewhat tight, enclosed area. We are not super compliant-worried but that scenario was a little too much. Other than that concern, everything was very good.
Sat outside, a little disorganized. Food was excellent thought.
This was our first foray out to eat since the pandemic forced all of the closings. We really like Noosa and the food was very good as usual; love the prime rib. We had a newbie waiter so service was average, He didn't screw anything up, just a bit slow and inexperienced. Ambiance is severely impacted by the separation requirements. We did like the style with which the tables are separated, thiugh.
