Use the adjective noted to describe something that's well-known or distinguished. A noted expert on dinosaurs is famous for her study of very old fossils.

You may have to wait more than an hour for a table at a noted restaurant. If you grow up to be a noted film director, millions of people will know your name and be familiar with your movies. Noted things get a lot of attention and praise. Originally, around the fourteenth century, noted simply meant "observed," from the verb note, to see or witness. You can still use noted this way, but it more commonly means "renowned."
