Noosa Bistro

9500 Diamond Centre Drive, Mentor OH 44060

$25 - $50 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.

Awful awful experience from start to finish. It took 30 minutes for server to come Back with drinks, an hour to order our food, and by the time she actually took our order they were sold out of what we came there for. We also confirmed they had it upon arrival, but they took an hour to take our order. In total we were there 2.5 hours for a table of three! Will not return.

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.

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.

I had to ask twice for another napkin. We were not offered bread although there were bread plates on the table. My martini wasn’t up to par. My steak was good but not exceptional and the au gratin potatoes were salty. We mentioned in our reservations online that we were celebrating an anniversary- it was not even mentioned. I often stop for lunch and have always enjoyed my meal. Last night’s experience won’t bring me back anytime soon.

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.

Food is good, but not for celebrating a special occasion. I was told that they do not bring anything out for birthdays, anniversaries, etc because that's not the kind of restaurant they are.......Why ask on the reservation if your are celebrating a special event then? I was disappointed and its not that we wanted a free dessert, I wanted my husband to feel special, that's all. Just FYI.............Food is good, just not a special occasion restaurant.

We have been coming to Noosa for years since it was on Mentor Ave. This was a disaster - the server told us she was there one week and training someone - should have been our clue to leave. Two of our orders were wrong and one server (who was not out waitress) argued with us. The service was slow - we had a 6:00 reservation and there until 8:30. Our last drink came to us AFTER the check. The food quality was up to the normal Noosa standard which is wonderful but the service was absolutely abysmal. And we saw our server only a couple times, most of the time, we just sat there and no one came over. And it was clear that there were too many tables to the number of servers. It will be a long time before we come back. Please get the staffing/service fixed. This complete lack of service is just unacceptable no matter how good the food is.
