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.

Music was terrible. It was more suited to Sat. night kid's crowd. We felt really bad for gaming table employees who had to stand there listening to the noise. How could they concentrate? We sat on the outer edge of the lounge area and still heard the loud, screeching noise that should have been soothing Sunday afternoon harmonies.

Waiter was very good, but overtaxed. Obviously there was not enough help. We hope he was well paid!

Food was acceptable.

Recommendation ONLY if the music was quieter!

We came for brunch and it was really loud.
The chicken and waffles were amazing
Service was terrible
We tried to order a pitcher of peach mimosa and we were unable too because it would’ve been like $50 pp

We went for the entertainment more than the food. We had two appetizers which were good. The most pleasant surprise was the fact that our drinks turned out to be happy hour prices from 6-10 PM and the entertainment started before 7.

It was a bit of a wait (5 mins easy with no seating area) for the hostess and that had already left a bad taste in our mouths from the beginning, but since we were from New Jersey with no other restaurants available for a Saturday night we waited. Once we got our waitress, she was amazing making up for all the nonsense previously. She was very efficient and very pleasant. Then the food came out and mostly everything was unseasoned to the point u needed condiments for everything and that still wouldn’t help. We ordered three different flavor wings, steak, shrimp cocktail, fried Mac n cheese and even the spinach crab dip and unfortunately the chef should not be at a casino restaurant cooking like he did Saturday night for us! That ultimately ruined everything about the experience so yes it’s visually nice n even decent music but when you go to eat you should want to eat the food and we waisted everything and felt bad that we took doggy bags and threw the food right in the garbage. I pray for their sakes that it was done purposely.

The staff was very nice. We all felt there was enough room to spread out and feel comfortable. The bar area was great because we could hear the music but wasn't crazy loud. Returned a few times during the evening and the drinks and food were not too high in price.

What can I say about the brunch @ Novelle? We are still talking about it. Can’t wait to do it again!!! Everything was wonderful. From the peach mimosas, to the shrimp cocktail, to the goat cheese-filled arancini, to the glazed donuts. Cannot wait to go back again. Special thanks to Chad!!!

Now that Mohegan is back in the semi swing of things we wanted d to try Novelle. We had an early dinner elsewhere so we figured we'd get apps and drinks and listen to the live band. We were seated at a high top and requested a table seeing two were open. Our request was denied. Drinks came that were terrible and waitress saw we didnt drink them when the apps came so we ordered 2 different drinks. Apps were ok but after an hour went by I asked the gentlemen who seated us why we couldnt get the table. He said two people cancelled and the other two tables were taken. I told him not true one was taken but the people in their pajamas just sat down. He was argumentative but I wouldn't let it go and eventually apologized but didnt offer to seat me at the booth. We were all dressed up and excited to just hangout and enjoy the music. I just got more angry as time went on after seeing the tables still open at 930 so we left. The place is beautiful inside but its a shame they dont have some sort of dress code. I guess it is what it is.

One of the best brunches I’ve had in a long time. Food was delicious and perfect portions. Loved the value of the Build Your Own Mimosa option and the DJ was awesome. The exact vibe I wanted on a Sunday afternoon. My fiancé and I will definitely be back again.
