The Nova is one of our top picks for date night but is also great for a group gathering. The décor of this small-ish space is cozy and eclectic. The restaurant is set into the bluffs with a nice outdoor seating area tucked in. It's off the main drag but close to "downtown" Hudson. Be sure to check out the attached liquor store for great selections as well as the schedule for "cave" events (very interesting history). The food NEVER disappoints - the fig salad is a must! And they have live acoustic music on the weekends which I love (don't worry, you can still carry on a conversation). Whether you're looking for a casual meal or a special evening The Nova is a great destination.

When we went here for lunch after the lunch rush, the restaurant was pretty much empty. Even so, service was slow, Service to come to the table initially as well as service of the food and getting the check. Most of the time our server was not in sight, and it's not a large restaurant.

Service of our wine was ok and the wine was good. The food was served very close to room temperature and it should have been warm or hot.

We haven't been back since. We may try The Nova again.

This is a small "boutique " restaurant in Hudson, Wisconsin. It has a small outside dining area. Inside the seating is intimate and unusual. However, more important is the high quality food. My entree was fantastic. The wine list was small but adequate. I don't drink beer, but the list of craft beers looked great. I can't wait to return!

My friends and I wanted to go to a wine bar in Hudson on a Friday night and this was the first place that popped up so we decided to try it. This place was so cute and quaint! The ambiance was warm, friendly and relaxing. The live music was perfect for the location. We each got a wine flight, which we all enjoyed, and food (Banana Leaf Tamales, Gyro Sliders and Lemon Tart). I highly recommend the tamales; the adobo sauce was amazing! Becky our waitress was awesome as well-super friendly and helpful! This was such a unique place and I hope to be back again someday!

Great food and service. Variety of dishes outside the regular restaurants which imitate others. This is UNIQUE.
Broad wine selection.
