    Quality not what it was in the past. We have had events there and also attended many events for friends at this restaurant. Rice and plantain chips were a little cold. Manager stood next to our table various times looking around once we paid the bill. Obviously sending the message that our table was needed for waiting guests. Steaks were delicious and the salad also.

    Unique interior design. I felt like I was dining in a quaint little spot in Nicaragua! Besides the wobbly table, everything was wonderful. The best chicken churrasco and moros I’ve ever had! Attentive servers and manager. Great ambiance. Easy parking and affordable.

    We had reservations, seated immediately. Service could have been a bit more attentive… especially after we ordered. For example, keep water glasses full and provide info on restaurant such as specialties initially when we arrived. Service did answer our questions when asked. Food was very tasty, fresh and plentiful.

    Server was great. The food came out a little bit cold. Also, the churrasco did not taste like churrasco, it was more on the flank side. Although it was good, that cut of meat is cooked differently then an inside skirt steak. So it was a little bit tough. When I got it, it was cold as if it sat out for awhile. It was edible, but was a little disappointed as I brought a few of my business partners that have never eaten there before. I raved about the steak to find out it was not cooked or prepared like it's been in the past. I had my wedding rehearsal diner in 2005 at the Gables location, so I hold El Novio to a high standard, especially conducting a special occasion at your restaurant. Back to the server, he was very nice, and seemed to care about our experience.

    I had the steak kabobs and the meat was tender and juicy. Their red beans with rice was delicious and the friend cheese appetizer was so good. My husband had a shrimp cocktail which he loved. For the main course he had the “ El Novello” steak which he said was amazing! This place never disappoints. Excellent food and service every time. It’s a must try!
