Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Whether it is a personal or professional occasion, this is the place to go! Recently I took a group of work collegues for a celebration dinner. Serveral of the folks had never been before and quickly became fans of the restaurant. From the moment you walk in the door, you know you are in a very special place. 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"

  • "Many people think you have to go to Boston to have a great meal. I don't think we need to leave the south shore. Alma nove is a beautiful space with water views of Hingham harbor. The shipyard in nice weather is bustling with people and things to do. Our meal and server couldn't have been better. Portion sizes are just right. What a pleasure not to deal with getting into Boston and parking then driving home after a great meal and some lovely wine. My husband had the scallops and they were the best we had ever tasted. The risotto is divine. Even though the veggie sides are ala carte they are very generous portions and worth ordering."

  • "We had been planning a trip to Boston, and after seeing Alma Nove on Wahlburgers we decided to stop in and give it a try for our Saturday night out. It was a great call, and we WILL be back on our next trip! We had reservations at 5pm. When we arrived, there were plenty of tables available. It did pick up very quickly between 5:30-6, so keep that in mind! The food was top-notch, from the tasting portions off the pasta selections (delicious!) to the not-to-be-missed lobster mashed potatoes and finally the desserts, where there isn't a wrong choice to be made! If there were any complaints, it's that the tables are a little close together, and service was slightly slow between courses. Still, neither can ruin such a great place! Go for it!"

Food was excellent, serving pace was good, ambiance was fabulous! Would love to return in summer to dine outside near the fire."

  • "We just recently went in for dinner for my husband's birthday. Beautiful décor and environment, but the food was average. I feel like the food didn't live up to all the hype surrounding the Wahlburg name. I mean, don't get me wrong, the food was good, but not OMG good. I would like a dish for $36 to warrant a OMG or a yum from both my husband and I. Low end wine, average apps, and a horrible dessert was served to us. Total bill came to over $100 and I felt robbed. I would not be rushing back any time soon. If you're looking for more of a fine dining option, head on over to Scarlet Oak rather than Alma Nove."

  • "This was my 3rd time dinning at Alma Nove! I always have the same dish (Seared day-boat scallops, spinach risotto, butternut brown butter) b/c I just love it... but do taste from my friends plate and everything, either fish, seafood or meat, is delicious!!!.... truffle-oil fries, almond butter....sooo good!!! Worth the money!! Paul is a great chef, very creative! The service is outstanding: pleasant and attentive, never have to wait long between antipasti and primi/secondi!! :)"

  • "My friend and I met for an early dinner on Thursday night and ordered the salmon and scallops. Both dishes were superb. We split a bottle of chardonnay, well priced, and a dessert and everything was lovely. The waitress was the perfect balance of attentive and casual, letting us relax and not rushing us while we chatted. I highly recommend this restaurant."

Space is premium, so hard to get a good reservation time unless you book 2+ weeks out but well worth it. The wine list was a great selection and reasonably priced as were all the entrees. Beautiful view of hingham harbor to dine by"

  • "We decided to travel from NY to Alma Nove and Wahlbugers for my fiances B-day. The place was absolutely beautiful and the staff could not be more friendly. Our dinner was YUMMY!! Paul was nice enough to come by our table and wish my fiance Happy Birthday. Actually I am on open table now to see if we can get in again tonight. Right after dinner while waiting for our desert my fiance leaned over to kiss me and the table broke! Well all I see is my wine coming straight for me i saved myself with the nice WHITE table cloth. Well the waitress was great about it and so was the owner Paul Wahlberg. Today we went to Wahlburgers for lunch, we saw Paul again and he informed us the table was fixed. He is very sweet and we recommend ALMA NOVE 100%"
