On the night we went (Wednesday), it was only half full so the noise level didn't really catch my attention. Our party of 7 could hear each other fine, but I do remember thinking the other tables were too close. I also ate here 1-2 years ago for book club and I believe it was packed and noisier. Both times we sat in the main circular area around the center bar. There is also a smaller section behind the hostess stand that is possibly quieter.
