Alma Nove is an excellent restaurant for memorable occasions. Paul Wahlberg is an superb chef with an outstanding menu. It is a beautiful environment for all. A family with grandparents, parents, and children dined near by and seemed to be enjoying the meal and atmosphere. This was our anniversary dinner and we specifically chose Alma Nove.

It's easily some of the best food I've ever had in my mouth. I'm not sure if I can afford to come back, but wow, the steak was fantastic. Extremely nice and attentive waiters. Very clean. Very classy. Great view. Absolutely loved it.

I arrived early and told the hostess it was my husband’s birthday and she explained they would provide a complimentary dessert. I told her he is allergic to chocolate & nuts and we agreed that a creme brulee would’ve substituted. At the end of meal the waitress asked for dessert order. Using bathroom as excuse, I went to hostess & asked about husband’s dessert. She said waitress would bring it with dessert menus for us. I returned to table & she brought menus but no dessert. I had to remind her of the birthday dessert,breaking the surprise. She then left us for avery long time & my husband wanted to leave as he was worried about his 2 hr spot expiring & getting a ticket. She finally brought dessert but included a nut-laden biscotti after i specified he was allergic to nuts & chocolate. We left quickly due to meter & I later noticed we were charged for the free birthday dessert. There was no reason for a birthday to be so badly handled along with a life threatening allergen put on his plate. Very disappointed as it’s his favorite birthday restaurant.

Hi Janet, I 'm sorry for how this was handled. In the notes on the reservation it only notes a chocolate allergy, and because no nut allergy was mentioned when ordering the server was unaware. Our steps of service is to give dessert menus upon clearing. The dessert was sent to the kitchen before the dessert menus were given, but I understand the mixed message of having dessert menus when you have already ordered something ahead of time. Either way you should not have paid for that dessert.

My spouse and I spent 2 and a half hours at the restaurant because service was so slow. It took 30 minutes to get my dessert after it was ordered. The waitress said it had to be baked, that is why it took so long. She should have mentioned this at the time of ordering. It took about 20 minutes to get our cocktails in the beginning. Everything else was fine. The waitress was nice.

Elegant, yet comfortably informal. Excellent menu with a good variety of choices. Nice wine list and a healthy spectrum and nice bourbons and scotches for after dinner. I'd go there again without hesitation.

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful night at Alma Nove. The hostess was welcoming and very friendly. The atmosphere and ambience were very relaxing. The food from the appetizer to dessert was absolutely outstanding. Our server, Chris was attentive and very helpful. He made us feel right at home. I can't say enough good things about Alma Nove and can't wait to go back.

This is a wonderful restaurant. Our experience on saturday nite started with a great hostess. Felicia took care of us from the very beginning. Some how we were assigned a
high top which we specifically did not want. Felicia apologized and had us seated in a
beautiful setting in about 3 minutes. This is someone who cares and wants customers to have a great experience right from the beginning. Mary Beth waited on us and as usual was wonderful and attentive. The meal was outstanding. My husband had the pork chop which was cooked to perfection and I had swordfish which is always, always perfect. We saw the general manager, Michael on the way out and he is always friendly. This is one of those evenings we will think about next winter. It was really special. Thank you to all the staff that makes dining here such an exceptional experience.

The food is great here. Quality over quantity, but still very satisfying portions. We enjoyed some craft cocktails and they even made a delightful mocktail for the 10 year old in our group. Highly recommend seafood and pasta here, the mushroom gnocchi was one of the most perfectly textured and flavorful dishes we ever tasted. Amazing burrata salad, with wood grilled crostini that were crisp on the outside and soft and chewy inside, and a generous portion of burrata. Amazing calamari, pork meatball appetizer and fabulous scallops and shrimp over risotto. I had the mediterranean salad with salmon and it was light, fresh and delicious. Four stars and not five for ambiance because our table wasn’t ready.

We went to Alma Nova for our anniversary. My wife loves their short ribs so it was an easy choice. While making a reservation we were asked if it was a special occasion and noted our anniversary. They brought us a cupcake with a candle “ on the house”. It was a small but thoughtful gesture. A perfect ending to a special dinner

I ordered sword fish....it was as usual outstanding.

Two people in my party ordered roasted chicken, The meals arrived,,,,,on the plated was this fried, rectangular piece of something......no taste, both parties were extremely disappointed.

We are unlikely to recommend Alma Move to anyone.

I apologize for your disappointment. I am concerned about what you describe however. We do not fry our chicken, and from the sound of it you had our Fish n Chips which is on our lunch menu. The chicken entree is on our dinner menu, though we are alway happy to accomodate a request if specially ordered. More concerning is nothing like this was brought to my attention at any point on Thursday. If you wouldn't mind reaching out to me, I have sent a private note with my contact information.

It was a nice evening eating dinner outside after a long period of isolation due to Covid-19. The food, the cocktail and desserts were great. We loved the Mediterranean salad, my friend loved her duck breast and my grill salmon was delicious as well. The evening ended very romantic with the a fire pit warm us up!!! I definitely recommend this palace to others.

Went to celebrate our friends 82nd birthday. Arrived at 6:30 PM and didn’t leave until 9:15 PM. Our waiter was very pleasant but either overloaded or disorganized not sure which.

Had to wait substantial amount of time for food and then for a small chocolate fondue with candle showed up. We wanted to take the desert home and war fairly abruptlyTold that we could not take the glass container. Where are the ways to handle the situation.

Generally food there is been a 7-8 but this particular evening service was a 3

The positive thing eating outside in the patio is a great experience on a temperate early summer evening.

This is not my first visit to Alma Nove. It is a great place at the great location; but this time the personnel was unusually slow and we felt lack of attention from them. Hopefully it is just a temporary thing after COVID lockdown. We will check back later!

Birthday celebration with another couple. Sat outside in perfect weather with a spectacular view. My wife had the cod special and I had the swordfish. It may have been the best swordfish I’ve ever had. Service was attentive but not intrusive and we weren’t rushed. A tremendous night out.
