  • "The staff are very attentive to your needs. We have a birthday celebration there it was nice to see they offer "birthday slice" to the birthday person. It was a nice time -"

  • "Alma Nove was a wonderful place to spend our anniversary. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. We both had the swordfish with lobster mash potatoes. I had requested a window seat and was happy to find that is where they sat us, we had a view of a beautiful sunset. We would definitely go back for a special occasion."

  • "Great atmosphere but way too costly for the type of food served as well as too gourmet entrees. Good experience but overpriced and overrated!"

  • "The perfect spot to enjoy lunch with my daughter and my mom. Lovely dining room, beautiful lighting and decor, with water views. We loved the lobster panini as well as the clam chower. I'd like to come back some evening with my husband and experience the outdoor dining area."

  • "Everything we ordered was outstanding. We started with the mussels and a tasting portion of the homemade gnocchi. My mother had the duck for her entree and I ordered the ribeye special. Everything was to die for. The views from the restaurant were beautiful and they have a great outside seating area with a fire. We met Paul Wahlburg the owner, and he was really appreciative of our presence and compliments. I highly recommend this fabulous restaurant!"

  • "- Great ambiance - Friendly staff but waitresses need some work -struggle to order drinks and water was empty for a good twenty minutes! -I had to ask the hostess as she walked by to send the waitress over. The waitress came by, go my order then ran off before my husband could order! -The rib eye had ok flavor but the seasoning was over powering (good but over powering) and it was super tough! When I first got my dinner they hadn't brought me a steak knife, so I tried using a regular knife and I couldn't get it to cut into the meat at all! -regular mashed potatoes and the lobster mashed potatoes were both really good! -My husband said the swardfish was better when he had it from here a year ago - Fun drinks and cool outdoor fire pits"

  • "We came for the first time on a Thursday @ 4:30pm to celebrate our 4th anniversary. We started off with a glass of Chandon and a rye Manhattan and then asked for the truffle fries and Portobello mushrooms as an app. They were both delicious, mushrooms melt in your mouth . I followed up with the sirloin steak and my husband got the salmon. Steak was perfectly cooked and tasty with plenty of marbling and my husband scarfed down his meal and told me he would come here again; so I know he was happy with his dish. We got the banana cream pie for desert and the homemade caramel in the pie was to die for...Really really good. The pie came with a side of caramel corn and dried bananas, wonderful combination of sweet and salty."

  • " Unfortunately, our dining experience was quite disappointing. The antipasto platter said it came with "multiple cheeses", when actually it came with two extremely thin slices of cheese and few pieces of blue cheese crumble-disappointing to say the least. Also, we both got the lobster ravioli which was lacking any sort of flavor. Given the high price we were quite discouraged with the restaurant."

  • "The menu is creative and appealing; the staff is friendly, knowledgable, attentive, and courteous; the service is warm, efficient, and anticipatory; the food is exquisite - visually appealing, and tastes even better than it looks! Chef welcomed us, and he and staff made us feel like welcomed friends. We have food allergy issues, and the staff was patient, genuinely well informed, and through their actions demonstrated to us that we could be fed safely - and not only were we fed safely, we were fed well! We will certainly visit again the next time we visit the area! Thank you for a truly wonderful and memorable meal."

  • "the location is great, and the inside is very nice. we sat outside at sunset and it was GORGEOUS! the calamari was delicious. i got the steak, but it was a little too smoky tasting. we get the rhubarb strawberry crisp for dessert... it was good but would have been better with more ice cream. only down side is the priciness. otherwise definitely will go back!"

  • "Very nice restaurant on Hingham Harbor in the Hingham Shipyard. Expensive but they are price appropriately for the presentation and food quality. They have a nice cocktail area outside with a huge gas fireplace. Some outdoor seating as well and most of the seating is inside and very nice."

  • "Sitting outside on a beautiful day, a little overcast but that kept the hot sun from ruining our dining experience. Food was great, service was great, not rushed, food came out with perfect timing. Not too loud nor too quiet...drinks were awesome as well. I'm a sucker for a good cucumber martini and the L'il English was fabulous! It was worth the 1-1/2 hour ride....We will be back!"

  • "My wife and I stopped in for a sunday lunch and were seated on the terrace with a view of Hingham harbor (very scenic.) It's located in a whole shopping/ dining complex on the harbor (one stop shopping/eating for many things.) Well, I had the soup and sandwich special (roast turkey- with lettuce, tomato, and cheese with a dijonette mayo on brioche with a cup of chowder. ) Just the right amount of food and the chowder and sandwich were delicious. My wife had the portabella mushroom sandwich with french fries. As usual we shared- and her sandwich was very tasty on the same brioche bun. The fries were cut very thinly and done to perfection with a sprinkle of sea salt. I highly recommend this place for a lazy afternoon lunch on the bay."

  • "After waiting many weeks for Sat night reservation I honestly can say, not worth the wait. The rib eye special was tasteless and tough. The service was not great. The ambiance was nice. I enjoy Wahlburgers a lot more."

  • "We've been before it was "famous" and it was great then. Not so much now. Waitress was slow, 2 drinks we ordered never came. Calamari was very good. I had fish and chips. Fish was good but small portion and the fries were mcdonalds. Good deserts. Overall: $200 for 2 adults and 2 kids, save your $$ go somewhere else"

  • "Our 14 year old grandson asked if we could go there to celebrate "Grammie"s" birthday. We traveled from north of Worcester and spent a fabulous evening. The food was great, the restaurant is gorgeous, the service was top-notch. My husband asked Paul if he'd stop by our table to say hello to our grandsons because they are huge fans and he very graciously did so and took a picture with them. Walked around outside after dinner and just enjoyed the entire evening. We'll certainly make the trip again."

  • " Enjoyed a week night dinner with friends we hadn't seen in a long time. The service was excellent as was the food. We were tucked in a both and it was cozy - the noise level was moderate but did not affect our conversation a clearing thunderstorm provided a gorgeous red sunset which was beautiful! The waitress was great - came by often enough and our foursome lingered talking for a time after - and we never felt pushed or rushed. A really enjoyable night. Highly recommend the chicken and the desserts; especially the spiced chocolate cake and the strawberry rhubarb crisp were worth every calorie!! Wonderful evening!"

  • "This was the 2nd time in one month I came to Alma Nove. The first time was with another couple who live in the area. The owner/chef came to our table to introduce himself & pose for a picture with me - AWESOME! This time around, I brought a girlfriend of mine prior to seeing a concert in the next town over. We arrived at 4:00pm and had a wonderful table on the patio over-looking the gorgeous marina & boats. It was the perfect way to spend an early evening in mid-summer. The hostess actually remembered me from my 1st visit, and made me feel like a "regular" and part of the family. She was so welcoming and sweet to me. I can't wait for another trip to this fabulous, delicious & gorgeous restaurant! If only I lived closer...!!!"

  • "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!"

  • "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"
