Diner Reviews
  • "The food was divine! It was our first time dining at Alma Nove and I am so happy it lived up to the hype."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Food is outstanding! Had a grilled beef tenderloin grilled to perfection! Truffle whipped potatoes were delightful. My husband loved his wood-grilled swordfish with lobster mashed potatoes. Our waitress, MaryBeth, was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. The hostess/greeter was rude, however. We had a reservation and I was to meet my husband at the restaurant after he had worked in Boston. He got there first, on time for our reservation. He told the hostess I would be 10 min. late but that he would sit & get a drink…the hostess gave him a snotty response that it could be a problem because there are so many people on the waitlist…by the time I arrived he was seated and had JUST ordered his drink. He got the drink 5 min after I sat down!"

  • "If your looking for amazing food....come here! The scenery is great right by the water and you have the option to sit outside and enjoy your company and meal there as well."

  • "Always excellent food and service. The outdoor seating is lovely in this beautiful weather with the water views."

  • "We have been to Alma Nove several times. We took our daughter for her 18th Birthday, and had a wonderful meal! Great service, great food, great Gluten Free options, great ambiance and great views. We will return many more times!"

  • "We were seated quickly and our waiter was attentive, but nothing special. He did not ask us why we were at the restaurant (it was our 25th wedding anniversary) or offer to take our picture. In past visits Paul or another manager has checked in on us; not this time. The appetizer, the suppli, was fantastic. It went down hill from there. My ragu bolognese tasked like something I could make at home. My husbands dinner -- forget the name but it was pasta and sausage -- was far too rich. We splurged on dessert as it was our anniversary and my first espresso was cold -- waiter brought another hot one but first denied that it could be cold. The creme brulee was ice cold -- even the crispy top -- and tasted like cold, thick jello pudding"

  • "We had dinner. The wine list was extensive. We had an outstanding wine at a reasonable price. The owner came out and spoke with us. The food was incredible and the cost was very reasonable."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had enjoyed Alma Nove in the past, but were disappointed this time around. We were inside and put near the back outside door. As the evening wore on, flies began to make their way into our food due to the regular opening/closing of the back door. We had a longer wait between our salads and our meal. The waitress was courteous and professional but not engaging. The food was just okay. While there seemed to be many people on staff, no one came by to say hello and double check on things beside the waitress. Not a great night."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Everything we tasted was fabulous! Clam chowder was thick and creamy. Calamari was lightly breaded and the mussles were in a great sauce!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Was disappointed in the pasta and short ribs. We were not charged for the meal and were given dessert. The other meal (swordfish) was excellent. This was my third visit and the only time I did not like the meal. I will definitely eat there again."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Love our Alma Nove Family flood and staff is spectacular and Chef Paul is truly a genius with food not to mention a genuine great guy...."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We went to dinner Sunday night and had a wonderful meal and ate outside where it was gorgeous and saw the sun set. My only comment is that I made a 7 reservation and got there early to put our name in for outside dining, which they tell you you cannot reserve on line for which is fine, and we were told an hour or more for outside but they could seat us right at the window so we could see outside, etc. We declined and set we would wait as there is nice seating outside on couches and chairs. In ten minutes they found us and said they moved things around and we have a seat. Just appeared to us that they wanted to seat people inside and were trying to discourage waiting for outside. Owners, not a good tactic as it could turn off people"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We spent the weekend in Boston to do three things, one of which was to eat at Alma Nove. We had a hard time deciding among all the options on the menu but I'm so glad we chose the lobster panini (with french fries, don't skip the fries!). I hope to make it back again!"

  • "No other way to really put it - everything is outstanding and flawless. Stellar. It's a guaranteed home run at this restaurant. Treat yourself!!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We love this restaurant. This visit was the first time everything was not perfect. Don't order the chopped Mediterranean salad. Cucumbers were too large and tough and tomatoes were hard and not at all ripe. Otherwise beautiful view and great food."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food was excellent!! I made a special request that the staff Made sure to fulfill which made our night even more special! Thank you!!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Had a reservation for 2 for about a week. We walked in and were seated immediately. The only plus I will give this restaurant. The table we were seated at was in the smallest corner directly next to the door. The table seemed out of place. We asked the waitress to see if there was another spot in the restaurant. She said yes turned around and didn't even ask the hostess! She left came back and said it was the best table in the restaurant. That was it for us. We didn't even make it to their very limited menu. If you want quality service and more variety to choose from, I suggest you look elsewhere!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "the restaurant is just beautiful inside and all the staff was so friendly. the setting is right on the water and what a view it was. food is excellent and a good variety. would absolutely go there again. next time i will try dinner. way to go wallburg's"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We started with salad, which was fresh and delicious, and the dressing was good enough to dip the fresh bread in. Then our main courses, steak for two of us and gnocchi for the other two, were very good. The only complaint was that there were too many mushrooms in the gnocchi. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Dessert was also great. We will definitely go again!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Enjoyed three courses for a late lunch/early dinner. All food was wonderful and reasonably priced!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The Lobster Panini was the best grill cheese sandwich I ever had. The waitress' accent made her a little difficult to understand. Could not tell if she did not understand, or she just had an attitude. Nice set-up, great location and the food was very good."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The boat service from Boston and the Shipyard atmosphere add to the experience, but the restaurant is what truly delivers! I knew my sweetheart would love it!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "From the minute we entered Alma Nove, the staff was friendly and helpful. They were able to accommodate our outdoor seating request. The food was very good and served in a timely manner. However, I would have liked more wine 'by the glass' options. It would have been nice if they had a more festive dessert for our special birthday celebration like they do at Capitol Grille and Sorellina's in Boston."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • " We enjoyed our experience thoroughly. The room was cool, but not uncomfortably so. The menu was varied and intriguing, delivering an excellent result. Food was delicious and plentiful without over portioning. Server was very attentive. Check website ahead for prices to avoid sticker shock. Chef Paul made a dining room appearance and was gracious with those wishing photo ops."

  • "This was my first time at Alma Nove. I was impressed by the lunch menu, excellent service, presentation, embiance and, above all, the quality of food. It's great to have a restaurant like Alma Nove in Hingham's Shipyard."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Food and atmosphere were excellent. The service was a bit slow during a very slow time of day. Will still come back and give dinner a try."

  • "Often inside at Alma Nove is very noisy. Outdoor dining is a complete change noise wise. Same delicious food and good service."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We arrived at our reservation time; and were seated almost immediately. We had a vibrant, cheerful waitress who took care of us. We had pasta, pork, and swordfish with a meatball appetizer. Everything was prepared very well; and my wife enjoyed her Birthday dinner - finished off with a delicious creme brulee! Both my wife and son rated Alma Nove with the highest 10 out of 10 rating; and I couldn't be happier - except my wife and I always comment how we'd love to sit out next to the fire pit and have a few glasses of wine. Maybe next time."

  • "Alma Nove is one of my favorite places to go. Great view and the food is just delicious. My husband and I have been to Alma Nove a few times & we both love it and enjoy it very much. The staff is very attentive and helpful; however, this weekend I took my 17 year daughter out to lunch and she had a few questions on the menu. Our waitress (Marybeth) when I asked for the kids menu so she can have more options was not happy with the request. Didn't tell us the specials, hardly came over, forgot my daughter's order, didn't explain the menu and her reply to my daughter's question on the menu were short and confusing. I did noticed the difference between the table next to us and our table. Even though I love this place, I was dissapointed."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "One of the best dining experiences I have ever experienced. The ambience added to the whole experience with the restaurant right on the bay. Was a perfect day for the beautiful day outdoor dining (though we chose to indoors). The waitstaff was friendly, knowledgable, and attentive. The food was outstanding. The only thing that would have made it any better would have been if we got the chance to meet any of the Wahlberg family members."

  • "I am not one to recommend french fries at such a place, but we saw them go by to another table and had been wanting an app to share so we said why not... they are by far my new favorite thing to order! That's right...fries with herbs and truffle aioli... they were perfect! I love a lot of things about this place... namely the lobster ravioli, the salmon, fresh berries and the creme brulee, etc... now I can add the herb frites to the list. I am so glad we tried them and now I can't wait to go back again (and again)"

  • "My husband and I took our daughter to Alma Nove to celebrate her 20th Birthday. The food was delicious, the staff very attentive, and the atmosphere was beautiful."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We went for dinner and drinks, and I can't wait to go back! Our server was excellent. The appetizer came out quickly, and there was plenty of time to enjoy it and settle between it and our meals. We didn't feel rushed or hurried at all, and had a great time. We're going to have to come up with some more special occasions, so we can go therefore often. It is a bit pricey."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I have been coming here since it first opened and on each occasion, I find the food consistently excellent. They use only the freshest ingredients and each dish was extremely flavorful. I took my son for a special birthday dinner recently. Everything was so delicious from the appetizers to the dessert. I had the lamb rack and it was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the two appetizers we chose as well. As it was a warm evening, we sat outside and the scenery was just beautiful. Would recommend sitting outside if the weather permits. Overall would recommend this restaurant. Will definitely be returning!"

  • "On the plus side, the service and ambiance were very good. Unfortunately, the food gets mixed reviews. The bread was delicious, as were the scallops. However, the butternut ravioli and halibut special were mediocre. Three of us split the creme brulee and banana creme pie. After two bites each no one wanted anymore. This restaurant is much too expensive for the quality you get."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "My husband and I went here for our 12 year anniversary we have 3 kids and don't get to go out all the time so this was a big deal for us I got the butternut ravioli w/lobster tail it's was just ok very plain.... My husband got the steak and he said the same very plain and his didn't even come with sides besides a little makeshift salad.... We had reservations and someone didn't come over for a good 10 minutes with even just waters... No one said sorry or we will be right with you or anything Just not what we expected for the money"

  • "I took my parents here for Father's Day lunch. Everything was very enjoyable. We come for special occasions as it tends to cost $50/person. My dad has a gluten allergy and they're very accommodating. However I wish they would expend the lunch menu. There were only three sandwiches. Perhaps a lunch salad. Also, there were not any gluten free lunch specials so my dad had to get a $28 pasta dish from the dinner menu. Otherwise great experience."
