Noosa Bistro

9500 Diamond Centre Drive, mentor OH 44060
$$ American Recommended New Editor's Pick

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.

We were there for the Mother’s Day brunch and it was wonderful! The food was delicious, as was my pineapple mango mimosa. I love the atmosphere at Noosa and will definitely be back with my family!

Server was excellent. She actually waited. Food was great, too. It seemed that the pricing was a bit high, but with todays inflated cost of everything and coming out of a two year pandemic maybe it was justified. Our group of four enjoyed the dinners. Good menu. Very one found something they liked.

We were seated in the area just inside the entry door, and it seemed as though they were also seating people with young children in that area as well. Would have preferred being in the cozier (and quieter) main dining room. But the entrees were superb as usual!

My only complaint is that the citrus dressing for the beet salad lacked flavor. My husband had the grits and shrimp and it was divine! Willy was our server and was very attentive and inventive! Our first time at Noosa, but not our last!!

We ordered the scampi and received shrimp instead. If we would have known it was shrimp, we would have ordered something less expensive. Other than that, we love Noosa and will be back again.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday, along with our son and his wife and two children. Willy was our server and he couldn’t have been more attentive to our needs. The food was spectacular. When Willy brought my wife a steak knife for her filet, she didn’t hesitate to tell him she didn’t even need one. My scallops were perfect, as well as my son’s pork dish. Thank you for a very pleasant and memorable evening. We’ll definitely be back! Rick Tennyson

Had a nice experience. Staff was friendly. Seemed a bit short staffed but most places are right now. When was gotten to by staff, things were bought to table in a good time. Food was good, not great for the price. Would go back mainly just for the ambiance and maybe just chill at the bar.

Our Thanksgiving experience was outstanding. We were punctual and was seated nearly as soon as we arrived. The service was above par. The drinks were perfect. And the meal..., only grandmother could not have prepared a table this well. For dessert I had the peach cobbler. I must say the peach cobbler was exquisite. We went away from Noosa fully satisfied. Now if you guys could do something about the weather.

My husband and I invited another couple to join us for dinner at Noosa Bistro on August 19th. I had the special, which was Mahi Mahi with risotto and asparagus. It has been a long time since I have had a meal this good. The fish was so fresh and prepared perfectly. It couldn't have been any better. The service was top notch and even the iced tea was excellent. One in our party had the swordfish and reported that it was also delicious.
