                            Food was great. Service was prompt. We were warned when seated that there was a back up in the kitchen, why I don’t know as the place was maybe 1/2 full. It took an hr before we were served our entrees way too long a wait. In fact we flagged down our waitress to ask when our food would be showing up and at that point there was 3 tables waiting in front of us. Also the drinks which cost $15 and up are very weak

                            Service was extremely slow and not at all attentive. Poor customer service. Observed many other patrons who actually became angry and were not happy. Patrons were actually changing their seating to seat at the bar where they thought they would get better service! Unfortunately the bar was packed and service not much better. Food was fair and small in quantity. $20 for a glass of requested “house” wine is way out of line totally unacceptable and inappropriate. Not at all competitive or consistent with other restaurants in this category. Restaurant was grossly understaffed for a Saturday night so poor service was not a surprise, this is a major failure. Very difficult to be forgiving even considering the current issues within the restaurant industry as this is a larger higher end establishment. Very disappointed, will not return.

                            The food, service, cleanliness and noise level were all fantastic. The only down size were the drinks. For the price the mixed martini drinks were tasteless and seemed to have more mix than alcohol in them. For $14.00-$15.00 plus tax I expected a better drink

                            Not impressed. Was looking forward to having dinner with my wife but after walking in there was no attention to us whatsoever. All employees were more focused on decorating for Halloween than us. After 20 minutes someone finally came to our table. Once we got our drinks and food our waitress disappeared for another 20 to 25 minutes. Since my food was spicy I needed something else to drink so I had to stop eating. Never again.

                            We had tickets to a show at the Mohegan Sun and looked online for a restaurant that we could go to before the show so based on the menu we choose Novelle. When we arrived at the table we waited quite awhile before a waiter came to our table and then were told the menu was not the full menu and that they only had a game night menu which was only about 10 items. We decided to just go with the very limited menu because we didn’t have time. We ordered drinks and sat there for 15 minutes and no drinks and it was the same experience with other diners after 15 minutes we walked out.

                            Waited way too long for the food and then a clearer broke a wine glass next to my plate. It took5-10 minutes to get anyone to address it. Never again.

                            Food was mediocre, it's a big cocktail lounge, small plates, took awhile to be served

                            Food & wine options were very limited, needed more TV’s with closed captions & maybe a betting game like Keno at the dining tables.

                            A terrible experience all around. Just to preface, we never ate any food at Novelle. We arrived at 6:20 and had a waitress come over to us at 6:25. She asked if we knew what we wanted to drink but my boyfriend was deciding between beers and we asked for another minute. She came back 8 minutes later, and only after we asked another staff member to find her. When he approached her, she threw her hands up a bit and made a face…. Most likely complaining that we had said we needed another minute. She came a took the drink order and we put in our food order as well. We were headed to the show at the Arena at 8 and wanted to make sure we had time to relax and eat. We even mentioned this to her, and she wished us a good time. It was 6:35. We ordered 3 APPETIZERS. A cheese board, sliders, and wings. She visited our table around 6:50 and said our food would be right out. She came back at 7 and said the same thing. At 7:10 she came walking to our table with no food in sight, I asked, “Is there something wrong?” She sarcastically chuckled and said “No, I’m just seeing if you want another beer.” My boyfriend said no, and we asked where our food was. She said there was a big party in the back that they just finished serving and ours was “coming out now..” We told her that when the food comes out, she should bring the check also, because we would be eating and running. She came back with the check, and only the check, in 2 min flat. It was 7:15. In the meantime…. TWO other couples who had come in about 15-20 minutes AFTER us, were served their food, and eating. By 7:30, I was done. We never even saw our waitress after that. My boyfriend and I scrounged up $10 in cash for the beer, left it with the bill, and went to the front and told two people who worked there we were leaving. We were there an hour and 15 minutes and couldn’t even get a cheese board. We walked out at 7:35. Such a shame. The waitress was first obnoxious, then sarcastic, then rude, then gone.

                            Despite being short staffed, our waitress was attentive and we received our order quickly. Both drinks I ordered were delicious and also delivered with not much wait. We were able to be seated, order, eat, and get the check within one hour, which allowed us time to catch the comedy show we were hoping to see. I do wish they had a more extended menu.

                            Ate early 5:30-7pm, before basketball game. Quiet, music starts at 7:30, not busy, food and wine excellent. Steak tender, fries and lobster mac & cheese tasty. Not inexpensive. Not really intended for families. After 7 must be 21. Would definitely return. Can gamble at private tables

                            I know most places are short staffed….. but there were 3 guys in suits (managers I guess) and 1 wait staff person After being seated and sitting for 35 min we finally got one of the guys in a suits attention and he took our order…. Drinks came about 20 min later….. almost 1 hour to get a bottle of beer and a soda…. Food was ok but took another 45 min to get….

                            Went here for the Sunday DJ brunch event. Our reservation was for 2:00 and they call us at 1:45 asking if we’re still coming because the kitchen closes at 2:15. So we literally had to order as soon as we sat down to our table. We asked to order over the phone which was fine. When we got to the place, there were only two other parties there. They sit us farthest away from the DJ but we requested to sit closer since there really wasn’t anyone there. Supposedly it’s for VIP only but they let us sit anyways which was cool. We waited about 50 mins for our food and they forgot one of the entree’s (mind you, there were no other people getting food) it was just wings, burgers, and fried calamari….which was pretty mediocre. After we ate, got up to dance for maybe 5 mins until a fight came about. The guys of the VIP group tried to fight a single black guy for getting too close to one of the girls. The whole time we saw that he was very respectful and didn’t bother anyone. He even took pictures for us and was super chill. So of course, he ended up getting kicked out and banned from Mohegan for life. So messed up. So after that happened, they ended the event an hour early. We barely got a chance to enjoy ourselves after waiting all that time for our food. Would not recommend, seems like they are bias and very picky about who comes in their place. Overpriced drinks and food. Would rather go to my local brunch spot for a better experience. The only good thing was our server…he was very friendly and accommodating.

                            Food and drinks were excellent but waitress and manager made our experience outstanding!!! Could not have asked for anything better
