We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at Alma Nova.
A lovely dining experience all around. The service is super - bartender really fun, waitstaff super nice & sweet, food excellent with wonderful and interesting choices. Love the design, setting and ambience too!
The food was excellent and the service from our waitress was great. She was friendly and knowledgeable and was very attentive to our needs. I would recommend this restaurant as a great place for lunch, dinner and special occassions.
We enjoyed our dining experience immensely. The service was great and the views wonderful. Celebrating a special occasion, we never felt rushed. The entire evening was most memorable. We both will make Alma Nove a favorite to share with family and friends.
I have been to Alma Nove several times, and each time it never disappoints- Great food, Great service, atmosphere- EVERYTHING !!! can be pricy but i think worth it!!!1
Alma Nove is a great restaurant. The food is always amazing and the staff is great.
The only unfortunate part of the night was a very loud party of ten who were celebrating a birthday. As the wine flowed the noise level became louder and louder, with no restraint. Sadly,it made our dining experience less enjoyable Everything else about the experience was fabulous
Delicious food, good proportions (and you can split plates to share with tablemates) and the presentation is outstanding. We had chicken marsala and lobster panini and loved it.
Will definitely return.
Top notch all around! Fresh, delicious food expertly prepared, well balanced, not pretentious. Patio seating was very nice. Service was courteous, attentive, and not saccharine. Very clean and simply stylish. Loved it!
The food, service and attention at Alma Nove was outstanding. I have certain food intolerance and the staff was wonderful about my restrictions. The were all so friendly and attentive and it was quite busy. The Chef/Owner came out to greet another couple to personally thank them for visiting from Canada. He seemed so genuine. I will definitely be back!
We were able to sit outside, which was delightful, , watching the boats and a lovely sunset. Unfortunately, the food was just ok. Lamb special was fatty, very small, and uninteresting. Lobster ravioli was good, but overpowered by the bacon. Our waitress was attentive, but we feel like the food is not as good as it was at the beginning of this venture, especially for the prices, and it seems like alma nove is thriving on star power, rather than great quality at this point.
The only issue with Alma Nove is they tend to serve all their wines at room temp; both the reds & whites, I'm not a fan at that approach...
My husbands steak was overcooked and he had to wait at least 20 mins for it to be replaced. The manager was rude when I asked for his hot sides to also be replaced which had gotten cold and only replaced one not the other.
Dessert was comp'd for him only which I think is rude. I was inconvenienced too by having to wait for his meal to be done.
Food was not that good in general this time.
It was our third visi. Would not return after this.
Loved it! The other reviews are so right. Beautiful restaurant, beautifully prepared and presented cuisine. Extremely friendly staff.
One point I'd make is that we did get the impression that our waitperson "pointed" us to the most expensive of anything we asked advice about. Since it was our first visit, even though that evening's specials sounded good, we asked what were their most popular menu items. She immediately responded with the "swordfish" and the "steak" the two most expensive items. When we asked about a wine (by the glass), again we were referred to the most expensive. Maybe this was correct, but we couldn't help wonder. We did take her recommendations and had a great meal.
Our entire experience was excellent. The food was delicious! Scallop appetizer was perfectly complemented by apple slices. Swordfish was perfectly cooked as was pork tenderloin. Banana cream pie dessert was scrumptious. It was definitely worth the drive from Boston. We plan to return as well as recommend to friends!
All our meals were excellent. On the whole the service was impeccable. I will say that our server who was very good could have displayed a little more warmth.
As always, the visit to Alma Nove was terrific!
Girls Night Out
Had a girls night and went to Alma Nove.......4th time there and never a disappointment.
Food was wonderful and our waitress was terrific. Waiting until our next venture out....
Food was mediocre at best and the wait staff was more like that of a chain restaraunt. The bar was better than once seated as there is a sizable area for sitting and standing with some high top tables. I'd go back to have a few drinks but not to eat.
Food and service were fabulous. Good wine list. Dessert out of this world. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and couldn't have picked a nicer place. No need to fight the traffic in Boston finally a great restaurant on the South Shore!
Another enjoyable dining experience at Alma Nove. We took our out of town guests to dinner and they enjoyed their experience very much.
Food was average
The food is well prepared, but with a very heavy use of salt. Also, they are gaining a lot of flavor from use of cream in dishes such as athe lobster ravioli. I would have appreciated some lower calorie options on the menu.
Food is excellent, but is pricey. Good for special occasions. It's a beautiful place on the water.
The atmosphere is wonderful. The service is easy but attentive. The food is great!
We were impressed by our experience at Alma Nove. Had been told it was expensive but we considered it very reasonable for the meal and ambience.
One of our party requires gluten free food and she was very pleased with the options on the menu.
As four adults who go to many different types of restaurants as we travel, we enjoyed Alma Nove very much and plan to go back soon.
Excellent mid priced restaurant - wish it was bigger
Great menu and wine list, signature drinks, excellent service. Drinks and apps on the terrace a must
Everything was excellent with one small exception. Receptionist was not as charming as the rest of the staff. I asked to be seated when two out of three were there and wanted to order a bottle of wine. She spoke down to us to let me know that in the future I would not be allowed. It was not before our reservation time and I did not appreciate the attitude. The rest of thw experience was great!
Great experience was topped off when Chef Paul Wahlberg came to speak with us as we were leaving...
Had great dinner at Alma Nove last thur evening. Good food - well executed. Service was good. highly recommended for good dinner on south shore. not over priced for quality of food.
Definitely improved from the first time we had been there, which was when they first opened. Service was great and we would recommend it. Having a perfect night to dine outside helped as well as the view if fantastic if you enjoy boats and the water!
Our second visit for lunch. Our only compliant is our food was rushed between the appetizer and our entrees. We had not finished the appetizer and our entrees arrived. It was during the week for lunch and it was not busy, plentry of empty tables. We thought we would be having a leisurely lunch and it just wasn't as expected given how slow it was. That was the only compliant. Otherwise the food is excellent as the entire scene I side and out. I only rated the service as good due to the hurry between appetizer and entree. We had ordered a bottle of wine and we thought we would have a little more time between courses.
Had a wonderful lunch. Beet salad was excellent and fish was fresh and well prepared. Came from the north shore and even though it took us 2 hours to get home, I would definitely go back again. In fact, looking forward to going on a sunny day so that we can eat outdoors. Service was excellent and well timed. Loved the deocor and atmosphere of restaurant.
A great restaurant. Very accomodating staff who sat us esrlier than our reserved time. Couldn't have asked for better food or service anywhere. Well done Chef Paul and staff!
Our experience was very good. The outdoor bar area was nice and the view was great! The dining room is beautiful and the food is very good. It appeared that a great deal of care was put into each meal.
We saw all the great reviews that Alma Nove has received, and made reservations last Sunday night to try it ourselves. The restaurant is in a beautiful location, right on the harbor in Hingham, and the ambiance is just wonderful. Inside is beautiful, comfortable, great bar - and outside is just amazing. Part of the outside eating area is tables, and part is composed of big comfy couches - a great place to sit and enjoy the evening. The food was great, as advertised, with a wide variety of choices on the menu. And the service was also outstanding - all in all, a very enjoyable evening and we'll definitely be back.
The drinks are delicious, the food memorable, and the ambiance is beautiful and fun. What a great restaurant with beautiful views and friendly service. We can't wait to go back.
We were still seated within 5 minutes even though we were 15 minutes late for our reservation. This started the evening off right as we had traveled well over an hour to have dinner here. Our table was outside and I have to say it was the the perfect setting. My husbands salmon was delicious however, my bone in tenderloin did not have much flavor. Dessert was exceptional. Will be back for the view as it looks like a fabulous location for a few apps and cocktails.
Great service and the kitchen was very accommodating to working a few dishes around some food allergies. The only thing that detracted from our dinner was that the noise level was exceeding high...more so than when we had been there before. [the banana cream pie was superb, even though a tad sweet)
Great place to have a romantic dinner:)(
