My experience here was awesome! From the moment we walked in my party and I felt so welcomed! Jeffrey hospitality was amazing, the food was amazing, the wine was amazing! I just wish the portions were a little bigger that’s how good it is! I recommend anyone to go here that loves good food, great ambiance, a great atmosphere!

Fantastic food, service and ambiance. Unfortunately I dropped my overall score and value scores as they’re now increasing their corkage fee from $25 to $40, making them the highest corkage fee (tied with Jean Georges) on my list. Unfortunate decision as we usually go once a week and will probably drop to once a month, as it’s our preference to support restaurants with more reasonable corkage fees.

The level of service was excellent. Our connoisseur Jeff made the experience top notch. We often frequent NYC and fine restaurants and Jeff is #1. The ambiance was so posh and elegant. It is the perfect date night spot or any night spot. The food was unbelievable. I ordered the lobster ravioli and it was insanely delicious. We are so overly satisfied with everything from beginning to end. Do not miss out on the French press at the end and trust Jeff's recommendations. We will be back and we will bring friends. Thank you for this experience, it's not common to receive high-end service, ambiance and quality food like this anymore.

This was my fourth time dining here and I can’t say enough about the cordial welcoming from the owner and his wait staff. Their Covid precautions were excellent and I felt safe. The Sunday brunch was delicious and the coffee outstanding. I plan to return soon.

What a delightful meal. Service was attentive but slow (note:it was NYE Pre fixe, 8pm seating) and our meal was nicely timed until Maine course, we waited 30 minutes in between. Food was worth the wait and manager was apologetic. We will definitely go back after Covid restrictions are lifted to enjoy the beautiful bar and a more lively experience. I recommend.

Always a superb dining experience at Nouveau Monde. Prixe Fixe menus are always on point with many excellent options. NYE was no exception, 4 courses were all delicious, the lobster ravioli was the best ever, and the sous-vide duck was also excellent and accompanied well. Service was of course impeccable as always, and wine service from Jeff informative and memorable.

Lovely dining room with fireplace and plenty of space around each table. Service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. We started with a large cheese/meat board and cocktails, both excellent. Fabulous wine list- we splurged and it was worth it. All four dinners, salmon, filet and veal were highly rated by all. Eggnog cheesecake had the perfect texture and lovely light flavor. We are definitely going back next week.

We came here for my husbands birthday again this year. It didn’t disappoint. Soothing atmosphere, exceptional service and delicious food. We were the first to try the Clam chowder that they had just added to the menu and it was out of this world. Probably the best we have ever eaten. It is a bit more expensive than most restaurants in town but worth every penny. Jeffrey, the manager and our server, was top notch. Very attentive and has a great sense of humor. Tables were spaced according to covid restrictions and the capacity was minimal. We felt very safe eating there. If you are looking for a top notch restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or just a night out to have an exceptional experience, Nouveau Monde is the place to be. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. We will be back again soon.

Not a bad thing to be said about our experience. The food was excellent! The staff were quick, attentive, and pleasant. Jeffrey’s knowledge as a sommelier was immensely helpful in finding the best wine pairings for our food choices. We’ve visited 3 or 4 times now and will be regulars for a long time to come!

When dining in a new area (we live in PA) we often select restaurants listed in the annual Wine Spectator Global Dining Guide. We saw the Stella exhibit at the nearby Aldrich and chose Nouveau Monde for dinner. Their prix fixe option delivered.

We had an indoor table near the fireplace. Tables were socially-distanced and ambiance was terrific. We ordered the prix fixe dinner with a wine pairing and it did not disappoint - delicious NZ Mussels, crab cakes, tuna carpaccio, also baked chicken and ribeye steak. For dessert we enjoyed limoncello mascarpone cake and maple walnut cheesecake. All in all, a wonderful night out with good food, good wine and great company!

Took my wife out for her birthday and we had the price fixed menu. While every dish was full of flavor, I would highly recommend the scallops appetizer. We had the lobster tagliatelle and the ribeye main courses. I've never had a pasta dish with lobster so perfectly cooked. I joked with my wife that you didn't even need teeth to eat it because the lobster was so tender. The ribeye was perfectly cooked and very flavorful. This is a higher priced restaurant, but you certainly get what you pay for. We will be back as soon as we have an excuse to go out to a nice dinner.

The food and ambience here was quite good, but the service was terrible. To elaborate, everyone was very nice, but the lack of training was blatantly obvious, which is not the staff's fault. I hope the owners / management commit to implementing a training program, otherwise, we wouldn't recommend dining here. Below are some examples:

- Bread was brought to the table. When asked what type it is, three different employees had no idea; finally, one of them asked the chef. Also, no bread plates were offered until asked.
- Sparkling wine was served in a white wine glass, not a champagne glass.
- Extra dry martinis were served dirty, and not in martini glasses, but margarita glasses
- Staff had no idea about wines being offered, or answers to simple questions like "can this dish be served without garlic?"
- Desserts served without dessert plates

If training is addressed, this could really be a neighborhood gem.
