What a pleasant surprise. We had not been to El Novillo in a few years (we forgot about it). We expected a good meal and enjoyed a great meal! The Mojitios were tasty. The churrasco was flavorful, the platanos maduros and fritos and gallo pinto were all good.
We enjoyed the live music, but wish we had not sit so close to the entertainer because the loud music made it difficult to converse.
We will not wait so long to return.
Haven’t been here in a while but wanted to bring my boyfriend to a different place since he lives out of town and we like to try different places together! He loved it and said it was like eating mom’s homemade traditional cooking! We’ll be back!!
Great food! Great service. We were a party of 8 celebrating my husband’s birthday. We will return.
House salad served with no dressing, waitress said ran out, then asked buzz boy and he brought it.
Food on menu was not available
Food was rushed while we were having salad
Order was not brought as ordered
The staffed started arranging tables and chairs making loud noises, complained manager came he insisted the restaurant closed at 9:30 and it needed to get ready for the next day. We didn’t finish the meal request to go boxes and left
Very disappointing no customer service oriented.
New Years dinner
food and service were wonderful. love the family style sides
Fair. Not so tasteful as it seems on pictures
Our server Lydia was great. The food was very good but the floors were not cleaned. There was a napkin in the middle of the floor that at least ten workers walked by and stepped over it, including a manager but no one picked it up until I mentioned it, then a bar girl kicked it over to where we couldnt see it anymore. There was a large table set up for new customers but had left over food under the chairs from earlier customers. Our table had not been swept from earlier customers either. I was very disappointed by the lack of cleanliness. This is a very nice restaurant with good ambience, good service and good food but seeing how the floors were in the main dining room leaves a lot to be desired of what’s going on in the kitchen. The music gets a little loud which means the customers have to talk above the music which makes it very loud in there. We will go back and hopefully things will have improved because I really like the place.
The server was very bad. You can hardly understand him through the mask. He was never around and was not being attentive to the needs of the table.
It was also my niece's birthday and I had called ahead and was told they offer a complementary dessert for the bday person. The server said that was not correct and charged me $7. It's not the money but the principle that they say one thing and do another. I think he is wrong.
I go there often and this was my first time with a bad experience. Been going for more than 30 years and the food never disappoints. The server did unfortunately.
Service was superb. Plenty of employees working. Orders were taken promptly, Drinks and food were great. Clean restaurant. Professional service and excellent experience.
Used to visit often when I lived in the area, but was very pleased to see that after about 8 yrs of not visiting, everything is as wonderful and food quality & taste has not changed, me & my family were very pleased, will not wait that long to revisit. Great experience as always
Never disappoints. Always excellent!
Great food, great service, great ambiance. I would highly recommend
When goi g to a restaurant, it’s important to eat what they specialize in. We had the appetizer of the sampler plates. Excellent choice. Everything was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone
I’ve been going to El Novillo fir more than 30 years. I live it! They never disappoint. Wish they will bring back lomito asado and the sizzling steak - Vaquero.
Location great, service slow, food ok. Room for improvement
We went there for lunch with my parents. It was an ok experience that I don’t look forward to repeating…the place was nice but the food presentation was weak. Service was less than expected since they changed my waiter twice. Would not recommend for any special occasion!!! 👩🍳 Chef Papo…!
Good mid-week dinner place. Menu had a nice variety of items to choose from including several versions of their signature churrasco steak. Lobster Thermidor was delicious, but not presented in-the-shell. Pricing for food and alcoholic beverages was quite reasonable. Very attentive service and laid back atmosphere. Easy to explain why this restaurant is a survivor (around 30 years same location)!
It’s been a while since we went to El Novillo but it’s just as good as we remember it. Great food and presentation. The lower service rating is due to unhelpful front desk, they would not take our reservations for same day dining? Luckily I remembered to try opentable and like magic made reservations in minutes.
Amazing food and service was great!!! Waiter was extremely fast and knowledgeable about the food.
Our group of 7 ladies go every year to celebrate our friendship at your restaurant.. Food, service, music & atmosphere are outstanding.. thank you ❤️
Great service, fantastic steak, I had the Novillo churrasco, was cooked to perfection, great side
The food was delicious but the service was very poor (despite them having lots of workers on the floor). I went one afternoon where it was not busy and it took 25 minutes just for a waiter to take our drinks. I eat out a lot and service is a huge thing for my family and I. There was also a representative who raised her voice at me in front of my family because she saw us being moved from one table to another by a waiter there. Apparently she had that table reserved (which is fine) I also had made reservations but tone is everything and she didn’t have to be yelling or anything especially in front of people. Despite that, we had a great time.
Carne asada is awesome, great service, affordable food. The restaurant looks super cute
Great food and service, just right environment to have a business conversation and wrap up the day.
Satisfied my craving for a good steak, sangria and gallo pinto. Had a disappointing a experience months ago but decided to try it again and was glad to see the food quality and service had improved.
We had a great Birthday dinner. Food was amazing and service was awesome.
Great food and quick service highly recommend
Had a good meal and good atmosphere
Nice place definitely we will come back soon. Very good food
Good food, good service, good priced
Our family celebration was wonderful. The food and service is always great.
Very Good Service. The food was delicious. I will recommend,
Excellent in all aspects. Great food and great service. Timely in sitting us and taking our orders.
Fue una cena agradable, el lugar es acogedor, ambiente tranquilo y buen servicio
Great food and outstanding service.
Service was poor. It took the staff a long time to come around. The place was very noisy and the staff waited a long time to clear tables around us after diners were already long gone.
Having said that, the food was good and an excellent value.
Love their service and food
The service lacked a little. It took a server about 10 mins to come to the table. The food was hot a delicious. The restaurant needs more staff. I know times are tough and people don’t want to work!
