Very cute place for dinner, we came here on a Friday night, approx 30 minutes before the kitchen was closing. They sat us down and informed us, that we should order ASAP but they never rushed us to end our meal. My wife had few...More

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. The decor is beautiful with rustic tables and creme colored chairs. The place is bright and clean. The service was excellent. The food was ok. I felt it lacked flavoring. The regular hummus bowl was bland, maybe some...More

The room is beautiful and the food is excellent. I love to bring guests to Novo because they delight in the decor and the excellent middle eastern food.

Good place for a get together with friends. Great food and good service. Seats by the windows can be chilly in the wintertime. Wear a sweater. Its worth it.
