Beautiful restaurant with romantic ambiance. Service friendly and prompt. Concise, yet fantastic, choice of local brews on tap - something for every palate. Food recommendations: Appetizer: "The Dip" - one of the best artichokes dips that I have ever had - comes with a nice...More

We will not be back to the Nova. I ordered the chicken fajitas for $18.00. When I think of queso, I think of a thick, cheesy mixture - what came was slightly browned ??? - why would it be browed - what looked more like...More

We’d heard good things but hadn’t made this stop due to the lack of parking and large amount of cars parked on the road. But finally made it a priority and we’re glad we did. We were seated in the “high back” chairs at one...More
