Waited over 10 minutes to be seated by hostess. It appears the hostess was also busing tables which created a long time of customers to be seated. Once seated waited over 10 minutes for the server to come to our table only to tell us she would be right with us. 5 minutes later she returned to the table. Good was good.

We went after a theatre show. Great ambiance and friendly service. We had the Crispy Truffle Honey Fried Chicken and the Slow Braised Short Rib. The chicken was amazing, perfect temperature, great flavors all around. The short rib was a little bland however. Will come again!

The calamari starter was amazing. The drinks were delicious. Unfortunately, the lobster Mac was cold, overpriced, seriously lacking the lobster appeal ($32 got us 8-10 small pieces) and just average tasting. The bill was also confusing and hard to read.

Our server was awful. We did have a party of 5 and unfortunately all parties of 5? or more add a 20% gratuity. Who ever heard of parties of 5 have to pay 20% gratuity. Our food was cold and the chicken was overcooked and dry. We asked for plates for our apps, never got them. Had to wait for our check. In all it was just a bad meal. It was obvious that he knew he didn't have to make an effort because he was guaranteed his tip!

Now I know why the restaurant is closing. Too bad because it is a beautiful building.

De Novo was a fun place to go for a special birthday dinner. The bread pudding was amazing! On the pricier side but the food was still very good. Would go there again!
