Is Nota Bene a good restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner?

Read a lot of good reviews for Nota Bene, never been there personally, so just wondering if it's a good restaurant for Valentine's Day, ie is the atmosphere romantic or is it too loud. And would anyone know if they do set dinners for Valentines? Thanks for the help in advance.

  1. Not loud at all. Older crowd. You might want to call first, they're prolly already booked solid VDay.

    1. i'd say yes. It's quite large, but nicely designed.

      1. Surprisingly I was able to book a table for 630pm but I booked it online via the Open Table website. Hopefully that website is reliable :S. i'll probably call them to make sure.

        Thanks for the quick replies.

          Hey meatballs, I use Open Table a lot (both here and in other cities) and have never had any problems with it. Enjoy your dinner, wherever you end up!

        2. Food is good and service is excellent, but it's not an intimate-feeling or romantic space.

          1. I haven't been either. But I gather it's more of a open, corporate feel. Many expense account types. If you've made reservations, that's fine. But if you want something truly romantic, you can't go wrong with a window table at Scaramouche.

              Agreed. If a guy took me here in the vein of something romantic, I would be disappointed. But then again, people have different ideas of what entails a romantic dinner.

              I, for one, don't think going out to a resto on V-day equals romance but I know I'm a minority here!
