Diner Reviews
  • "The Duck Breast with Fig Reduction and Gorgonzola Risotto was amazing!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I had one of the best meals ever at Alma Nove. Easter Sunday did not compare to that at all. Our reservation was at 2. I ordered the cod wrapped in proscuitto. The proscuitto was not a light moist covering but a dense, salty, hard covering. Overcooked cod too. The risotto had no shrimp. My husband had Pork Tenderloin. It was a few slices that were ragged, seemingly left over tenderloin. My mother had lamb. All of these meals were served luke warm - not appealing. All putting on happy faces because everything else about Alma Nove was wonderful, on the way home we all realized we were disappointed with our meals and discussed that we would likely not go back again during a holiday. My son loved his steak, however. "

  • "We went to Alma Nove for Easter dinner Great choice. We live an hour away so this would definitely be a special occasion spot. Food was great. Waitress was friendly and answered all our questions. Sometimes at expensive restaurants you can get snooty wait staff so not the case here! All the employees we friendly and attentive. Paul has created a welcoming and inviting atmosphere! "

  • "I had one of the best meals I've had in quite some time. I was debating between a few things and of those our server recommended the swordfish with lobster mashed potatoes. Amazing! Swordfish was cooked perfectly (not over cooked which is too often the case elsewhere) and you could really taste the lobster in the potatoes. Incredible! Definitely worth a visit!"

  • "We went there for my fiancee birthday. We had reservations and arrived aboput 10 minutes early, as soon as our table was ready we were seated. we ended up getting the potato crusted calamari and the kobe beef brisket for apps. they were both very good. We aslo shared a tasting size primo of the gnocci with mushrooms, it melted in your mouth, my fiance would probally get that a a dinner when we go again she like it that much. the sirloin was also very good , cooked to perfection. I had the swordfish with the lobster mashed and i was to die for. If you get anything there you really must get the lobster mashed potatoes they are outstanding."

  • "First time in Boston and had to visit a Wahlberg restaurant. I enjoyed my dining experience. The food and service was very good. May I recommend the lobster ravioli. It's fine dinning so I recommend this for special occasion, great view and scenery where it's located. I really appreciate restaurants that take reservations, they even called to confirm it earlier in the day. I would visit again!"

  • "My wife is a huge fan of the Whalburgers show and I wanted to do something special for her birthday. Whalburgers does not take reservations, however, Alma Nove does. We had a reservation for 10 for lunch. All I can say wow. The TV show does not do this restaurant justice. In addition to the amazing views, the food was out of this world, the service was perfect and the prices were very reasonable. We saw Chef Paul in the restaurant and asked our waitress if my wife could meet him since it was a special occasion. Sure enough he came over a while later and whished her a happy birthday and took some pictures with her. He was a really cool and genuine guy . I would highly recommend this restaurant to family and friends. "

  • "I cannot say enough great things avout Alma Nove. We were seated quickly and our server greeted us within 1 minute. She was one of the best waitresses ive ever had. Friendly, attentive, and super knowledgeable of the menu. The food- unbelievable. We had braised meatballs for an appetizer, my husband had beef tenderloin (he didnt even need a knife bc it was so tender) and I had the cod wrapped in perfectly cooked prosciutto. The simplicity of the cod and the bold flavor of the prosciutto were such a great compliment to one another. Then we had dessert, cheesecake and chocolate cake. Both flavorful, rich, and dense.Our hostess called us a cab as we finished our drinks. We left comfortably full, and with palettes completely satisfied."

  • "With all our allergies the staff was point on creating dishes for us. My only concern is the food a bit salty and more gluten free dessert options."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "The restaurant is lovely but the food is rich, too salty and way too expensive. I would not return for dinner although lunch would be fine. "

  • "Alma Nove went far beyond my expectations. The cocktails were delicious and the food was out of this world. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff that made us feel right at home. The location allowed us to see a beautiful sunset over the water as well. Next time we hope it's a little warmer so we can enjoy the outdoor patio dining. We will definitely return to Alma Nove. "

  • "My husband and I are fans of the "Wahlburgers" tv show and we decided to visit the area for our 14th anniversary. We traveled from Southern New Jersey and spent the weekend at Nantasket Beach Resort. Long story short, we had an amazing time, the food was wonderful, the staff was amazing, the property was gorgeous and we cannot wait to visit again! "

  • "Alma Nove checks all the boxes. Great food, fresh and quality ingredients, fantastic bar, friendly and professional service, along with a spectacular setting and view. My mom took me out here to celebrate my birthday. We were seated at a great table by the window to view the sunset and outdoor fire pit. Started off with a perfect Grey Goose L'Orange Negroni. The assorted breads tasted like they just came out of the oven. For my entree I had the pan-seared Atlantic salmon with no butter. Probably the best piece of salmon I've ever had from a non-seafood restaurant. Seasoned perfectly. It's definitely pricey, but worth it. A great restaurant for a special occasion. I look forward to returning soon for a drink at the bar."

  • "My sister and I wanted a nice place to go for dinner and found Alma Nove on Open Twble. Not knowing what to expect, we were impressed from the minute we arrived to the moment we left. The sun was setting and the fire pit lit back was on and the whole setting was beautiful. The food was INCREDIBLE. I recommend this place to everyone!! "

  • "Our waitress wasn't the best and spoke barely above a whisper but we were seated early and the duck and steak were some of the best we've ever had."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The food, as usual, was great. We were seated promptly, and after five minutes with no contact with any server, a server from another table came over and asked if anyone had been at our table yet. We answered "No", and she said she'd get one right over. "XXX" arrived shortly thereafter, and took our drink order. We saw our drink order sit on the bar for at least five minutes before he went over and picked it up to bring it to us. This was 6PM on a Monday, not busy yet at all. This typified service for the rest of the evening. I should note that this server is atypical at Alma Nove and unless he picks up his game, you probably won't have to worry about him."

  • "I've been coming here for years and they never disappoint. I highly recommend the arugula salad. It's honestly the best salad I've ever had in my life."

  • "I have never been to Alma Nova that the meal and service hasn't been excellent. You never feel rushed. I have brought many friends to this restaurant and all have enjoyed it. Be sure to make a reservation well in advance if you want to go for a special occasion....many people love it too!!!"

  • "Alma Nove served us the best food we had ever experienced! The restaurant is beautiful and the service was exceptional. The only draw back was that it was a bit noisy...there were times we couldn't hear each other speaking at our own table. But that is less of a reflection on the restaurant as it is on the fellow diners. All in all a dining experience I would definitely repeat!"

  • "Had a wonderful dinner and entire dining experience ! Loved everything about the evening and the staff including Paul ,couldn't have been nicer! My daughter and I both LOVED the swordfish with lobster mashed potatoes, the best we ever had . Can't wait to return again ! The oysters , muscles and calamari were all excellent appetizers enjoyed by all , so fresh and delicious !"

  • "Food was great; service was just okay. Slow to clean up plates and get refills on drinks. Waitress was friendly but forgot items. Would say she would return to clean up all the appetizer and bread plates, but just piled up. We were easily forgotten and it was not that busy. Even the hostess complained that we were early (10 min before reservation). I took by Mom out, who was in a wheel chair. Generally like to get there early to get her set up and comfortable. Food was great. Just wished the service was better."

  • "Our group of four were unanimous in our opinion that the dinner was the best we had experienced in years. The salads and entrees were perfectly proportioned and artistically presented. Most important, the flavors were awesome. We did experience an issue with a very loud adjacent table. This was quickly resolved by our waitress moving us to another table. We will certainly return."

  • "Mary Beth our waitress was amazing very personable and attentive. She even offered to bring Paul Walhberg to our table if he was there, unfortunately not. I love it is classy restaurant but they do not require dressing to the 9's."

  • "First time visit with a friend for lunch. Ambiance was wonderful - high ceilings and open floor plan, quiet enough for a comfortable chat with friends, great water view and the food was excellent. Best of all was our server. She was personable, attentive without being intrusive, and really enhanced our dining experience. Just one suggestion - add a smaller dessert choice to the dessert menu for those who are "almost full" from the fine entree but want a light sweet to cap off the meal. We'll happily return to Alma Nove."

  • "Went on a Saturday evening. We arrived a little early and were seated right away. We each ordered a glass of wine and an appetizer to share before the meal. Six of the freshest oysters on the half shell i've ever had. She ordered the Cod wrapped in prosciutto with shrimp risotto and I ordered the Rib Eye medium rare with garlic mashed. Bot of which were cooked perfectly. We shared an Apple Crisp for dessert. We would go back to Alma Nove again and again. From the hostess to the servers right down the person cleaning the tables the service was tremendous. Its where I would like to bring my family for special occasions."

  • "My wife and I dined there on 4/5/14 and had an amazing experience beyond our expectations! First off, we arrived earlier than our original reservation time that we booked three weeks prior. As we checked in, we were told that it would be a moment before our table would be ready. As we stood back towards the door, Paul Wahlberg approached us with a warm-welcomed greeting and immediately shook our hands. It was a casual atmosphere where the now celebrity (due to A & E's "The Wahlburgers") and ourselves were able to engage and allowed us to show appreciation towards their business and its hardwork and dedication. After a 12oz steak and swordfish with lobster mash potatoes, topped off with a smooth bottle of wine, we WOULD recommend Alma Nove!"

  • "We made the trek from Watertown - a tricky 40 miles - to try Alma Nove and will happily do so again and again. First, we got lost, so had to call the Desk to ask for directions and to hold our reservation. They could not have been nicer and were equally friendly when we arrived. The restaurant is beautiful, airy, almost spa like and on the wharf....yet, cozy..friendly atmosphere. The menu is creative with high end takes on real food. The food is fabulous! Service was equally good. Ourwaitress, the terrific Katie, was nothing short of professional, helpful, pleasant and fun. Great place..memorable dinner. Highly recommend!"

  • "We've been to the restaurant a number of times. It has a great feel. Always lively and packed with patrons. We've had the bolognese, the pasta with sausage, burgers, salads, everything has been wonderful. The menu has a lot to choose from but not overwhelming. I would strongly suggest making reservations, even for lunch. It's a busy place."

  • "Everyone is so pleasant. Our great night started with prompt seating and a waitress at our table as soon as we settled in. Our dinner was the best and for my Italian husband to be full at the end of dinner says alot about their portions. although the ride is 50 minutes it was simple to locate so we will be back at least once a month. We also enjoyed meeting Paul and having a photo taken with him."

The food is exceptional and the staff is friendly and fun!! All added together makes for a very special time!"

  • "This was the 1st time that I went to (or even heard of) Alma Nove. I took my family there for my Mother's birthday @ lunch on a Saturday in March. The building is beautiful & well laid out by the water in Hingham, MA. There is a nice open seating area outside with water views (not in winter!).. When you walk in, it is even better laid out inside, large/airy with high ceilings & slightly funky lights and decor. The well appointed bar goes down one wall with the rest of the space looking out lg windows to the waterfront. The waitstaff & food was excellent, wine list was great, good portions, prices were a little on the high side, but well worth it. The owner/chef Paul Walberg was visiting tables & greeting folks. Very well done. Will be back"
