Nova Kitchen & Bar
The service was wonderful, especially out waitress Chelsi. She was so kind and helpful.
The drinks took a little too much time to arrive, and starters as well.
But the total vibe was very good 👍🏼 😁
Very nice restaurant and bar in Garden Grove area. The foods was terrible bad. We order yellowtail jalapeño, ceviche, Dan Dan noodle, ribeye steak, Japanese pepper and all came out no taste at all. The service was slow and ok
Service, food, and environment are top notch! Couldn't recommend more!
Excellent ambiance, food and service. This was my first time dining here, but I’ll definitely be back soon!
Very nice presentation, food was great
It’s alright. Food is ok. drinks are whatever. Will I recommend it? No. We are not going back either.
Amazing restaurant. So clean and nice. No matter what direction we looked . Always something nice to look at. They had nice music playing . The food was delicious and even looked amazing . Drinks were always fun and yummy. We will be back for more dates .
All great but for brunch time quite a lot of loud bumper music. But that’s the crowd they’re after. Enjoyed anyway from outside seating on patio. I guess we’re just old farts!! Haha. Food great!
Service was unbelievably slow. The food is mediocre at best for its price.
Everything was ok except the chicken on the rise & shine menu,we will be back and will try the rest of the brunch menu and we will also try there diner menu
Service was okay. Food was not hot when it came out. We ordered the hawk and it should have come out hot.
We ordered a brunch of plates to shared. They forgot 2 bring out 2 of the orders. We only remembered 1 of the dish and they comp us and brought out much later. By the time we got home, I realized they didn’t bring out the chili oil wontons. So we paid for a dish but didn’t get it.
I like the cocktails. It would have been nice to get our cocktails before the food come out.
Food and drinks are delicious! Ambiance is modern and hip with lots of open space.
Great food and service!
The following were delicious:
Chili oil wonton, spicy tuna crispy rice, brussel sprouts, dandan noodle, fish collar, double hamachi
The 5 element dumplings was disappointing. nothing spectacular about them.
We had mahalo for dessert which is their version of the Filipino halo halo. It was good but not great.
Food was amazing!
Worst service I’ve ever had.
The food here is pretty average. The the best or the worst that I had.
If you enjoy sushi or fresh fish - do not come here. Tasted like tuna fish from a can in every roll. You know you are in trouble when the edamame is the best thing you had to eat. Dan Dan noodle were basic and nothing special, pork belly was flavorless. And while we totally understand how challenging staffing is in restaurants right now, this was ridiculous - we received 4 plates of food at different times BEFORE our first cocktail, which was disgustingly sweet. Save your money and go to to your local sushi place. THIS IS Not it.
Nova was the best restaurant environment of the vacation! Clean, excellent food and service! Our waiter was amazing. Definitely a great time for our group. Thank you for making our vacation in the area end on a high note.
We will be back again soon.
Food and drink are mediocre at best for the price. The only thing stands out is the service. People who serves our table is very nice and attentive.
Always a pleasure to dine here
This restaurant is one of my favorites. I tell everyone about this place because it is delicious and for the ambiance. It is a great place for celebrations and date nights.
The customer service is amazing, they are very attentive and helpful. The food and drinks are delicious and their plating is on point. My favorite foods are the chili oil wontons and Dan Dan noodles and for drinks I always get the hibiscus zest. I always keep coming back for more!
90 dollars steak was not really good. Had 0 taste. Good thing is that the restaurant didn’t charge me once I brought it to their attention.
Food came out really late with random orders. Steak came first, then appetizers 30 min later, then sushi another 30 min later.
Wasn’t the best not good service not good food and service as overall bad
The ambiance of this place was very well done, our server was amazing, the only thing that held me back from 5 stars was that one of our items was taken by another server to a different table. Our server handled the situation kindly, offered a free drink & apologized which felt satisfactory & wasn't a big deal.
Shared plates were generous, drinks were good, wait staff attentive and filled soda frequently. All staff wore masks and gloves which I really appreciated.
Great place for a family dinner. Lots of options for food. The bone marrow n NY steak is a MUST try & of course the yellow tails. Lots of options for sake n beverages. The atmosphere is unique.
Always come here! Love love love the food. I don’t have to go to Vegas anymore!
food was okay but over priced, service was okay, waiting for food was long. overall i am not dying to go back there.
I love it I will come back
Horrible! Had a reservation at 645 for party of 4 .Was not seated until 750. 15 mins until waiter came by. Took drink order and we ordered 4 sushi rolls. didn’t see again for 15 mins. No drinks only water cups. No water yet… drinks come 10 mins later. After a total of an hour at the table sushi order had not been put in apparently. We left. Obviously short staffed but this was ridiculous.
Food was incredible slow coming out
Food was good but the service was very slow. Our server would disappear and drinks took forever to be served.
Very busy (service was a bit slow the Thursday night I went but we weren’t in a hurry) but great Asian fusion food and amazing drinks! My favorites were the Dan Dan Noodles and cocktails.
Seemed short staffed. Took long for the server to greet us after having been seated (came 15 minutes later). Initial order of drinks as well as water took a long time to come as well and we were seated on the outdoor patio and it was a little warm. Server however was great and food and ambiance was great. Service was just a little off this time around.
We were there, unfortunately, when there was an event with many rude people. However the food was very good. The service despite the shenanigans was excellent.
The ambiance of the restaurant is unique to say the least but I loved every bit of it. I didn’t expect the food to be as good as it was but everything exceeded our expectations. My friend and I shared the Brussels sprouts, braised pork belly & double hamachi roll and it was the perfect amount of food for 2. We both agreed that this is a spot that we’d come back to.
Great food and ambiance, friendly employees and amazing drinks!
The serving for the ceviche is way to small for $15. Doesnt taste like ceviche and looks like only one person can it. Not recommend
