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.

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.

I can't complain about anything. We were seated on time, and the food and service were great. There was perhaps some confusion on salads-my son ordered a salad and my daughter and I were going to split one. But I think the server had 1 salad split 3 ways as they all looked the same size. No real problem-the salads are huge and we all had enough!

Obviously the restaurant wasn’t crowded because of Co-vid 19 food is always enjoyable at Noosa. Waiter was less than attentive however.
