Had a great waitress. She was very patient with us all. Didn’t seem to mind that we all needed separate checks. The manager on duty was kind enough to substitute a meat meal for fish on Friday.

Had a very nice time, server was efficient and had a great personality. Only down check was that we seemed to be in a feaf spot for ventilation. A large party in the adjacent function room all ordered a fish entree, and the aroma got to be overwhelming and drove us out of our seats. We also seemed to get cigarette smoke blowing through periodically throughout the evening.

The Calamari was extremely soggy, not fresh and fried crisp. Very disappointing for such a simple dish, we had to return this item, and it was removed from our bill. The main entree's were not great, the Lobster pasta dish was bland, the sauce was not authentic. Maggiano's is by far better with a menu offering that surpasses this restaurant. Pricey but offerings do not warrant the prices.

Fantastic atmosphere. Server attentive, engaging and helpful with meal choices. Seems pricey but we each got two meals out of our dinner (great lunch next day!) and leftovers were equally enjoyable. Fun drinks, nice menu selection, ample portions, buzzing atmosphere and unique setting in old theater vibe. Will be going again. Side note--I hardly recognize East Milton square it has transformed into a sneaky cool little hub. More places to explore.

The food was delicious. I had the beet salad with steak. Our waitress Zipporah was fantastic. As our dinner was ending, the piano music started playing and that was a nice addition to the evening

We were there at 5:30 PM. They gave us two small pieces of bread and had to ask for more. We ordered after a few minutes and the meal came out immediately. They rushed us through the whole thing. We were finished at 6 o’clock. Very disappointed, but the food was very good

Didn’t realize it was brunch until we got there. That’s on me. The brunch was decent but their regular menu is significantly better.

We had a reservation for 3 and it did not disappoint. One person had a dairy allergy and we were unaware it was only buffet brunch and they went above and beyond to make sure she had enough to eat the chef even came out and explained what he could do for her. We appreciate the quick thinking and had a great girls get together! We will be back!

Food quality noticeably down since last visit. I don’t think we will return. Service great, chicken parmigiana more in line with what I might expect from Chateau or Olive Garden. For the price point, it was very disappointing. I have been here about 6 times previously.

This place is awesome for a date/dinner. My server even brought me a blanket as I was cold (window side table had a draft). I had a few mezcal based drinks (not on menu, but the bartender made me anyway). The ahi tuna wontons are super delicious!

As always the food was great, however the service on this visit was horrible. The waitress was slow and kept us waiting to order items on multiple occasions (drinks, food, dessert). At the end of our meal I finally went up to the hostess stand to get our check we had waited so long.

Novara was the perfect place for brunch on Sunday. It has a terrific buffet with a delicious bloody mary bar. The restaurant has wonderful private event spaces and rooms. I would come back for dinner and look forward to exploring the menu.

Outstanding food and service. Erin was our server and she was terrific. Food was great too. I was surprised by the three giant TVs playing the Bills game.
