This was our first time visiting Nova ,We were seated immediately for our 6:15 reservation on a Friday.We were the only people there when we arrived before it started to fill in by 7 pm.We used the valet only beacause it was much easier than looking for parking at the time.This is a BYO no cocktail bar.Our waiter was very knowledgeable and explained every dish along with every ingredient as well.The blend of spices used is very well balanced too enhance the dish.Aside from the menu was offered two appitisers and an entrée of Mahi mahi blackened with their own combination of spices.We also enjoyed the Lambchops that were cooked to perfection and very meaty.The appetizers of smoked rolled salmon filled with vegetables and baked hazelnuts along with the halloumi cigars were delicious.We brought a bottle of wine that our server placed in a wine bucket by the table for us. We never felt rushed and our water glasses were always full.Our server was consistently checking up on us throughout the meal.The desert menu was simple and all made on the premises.I would not hesitate to go back to Novo again and bring a friend.

Having been to Nova in the past I had raved about the wonderful salmon I had experience. Last nights was rather mediocre, the portion seamed smaller than before and was on the dry side even though we had requested medium to medium rare when asked. Not that I think there is an excuse for a difference in quality I will note that they were very busy. The soup of the day was insanely delicious and vibrant in taste which is what I have come to expect from Nova and I almost thought my friend who had the lamb was going to lick her plate clean it was so good. I would still recommend this restaurant as being one of the best in town, and will return.

Lunch portions could not be smaller. Cauliflower must have been in abundance that day. On almost all the dishes. Would not return.

Excellent appetizers. The Muhammara was excellent and so were the eggplant chips & the halloumi cigars.The pita served with the dips was pillowy and moist.
The Mediterranean grilled chicken salad was a disappointment and put a damper on the meal.
There was no marinade/spice on the chicken at all. it was just plain grilled chicken so I wonder where the Mediterranean part came into it. Had to ask for a sauce to go with it as it was so dry.
But the ambience was good and I would go back just for the appetizers.

This restaurant, with the nicest décor in the area, serves really good Mediterranean dishes with consistency. The service is wonderful and it's BYO, so you can bring great wines of your choice.
