Service and food was fantastic as always
I have taken various friends and family here for brunch on several occasions. All but this visit were 5 star. We arrived promptly for 11am reservation and were seated right away. We were busy talking before we realized it had been 18 minutes and no one even greeted table. We flagged someone down that sent over a male server that just said, I’m so sorry your server hasn’t come over, she is really busy. Restaurant he maybe 4-5 tables with ample staff. Beverages were brought over in 10 minutes and we said we were ready to order. We were told, she will be right with you. The male server that initially we had flagged down and said, I’m sorry, she still hasn’t taken your order? I will take care of you. From that point service was fine as he took over but the start was terrible. Honestly if we weren’t enjoying conversation in our party and catching up I would have been more upset. If I had not been here several times and been extremely happy with visit I wouldn’t go back. Not sure what the disconnect or who “she” was that was struggling, but I never even saw a female server in our area through visit.
Great atmosphere, food and drinks as usual, great place!
We loved sitting in the patio at Novita. And we loved ordering wine and sharing all the appetizers. It was a fun night!
Very nice evening & delicious food & wine.
It is always a great experience for my husband and I to go to Novita. The food and wine are amazing. It continues to be special place to go out to eat!!!
My waiter and the staff was great. Food was wonderful!
Food and drinks are exceptional. Ambiance and music are also above expectations. Service could be better.
We made a reservation and had a terrible table. People were walking by all night bumping into us and our appetizer plates didn’t even fit on our table. We asked if we could relocate and we were told no that the other tables were reserved. The music was very loud and uncomfortable for a dinner. It sounded like a club.
Always Good food and Great Service.... at times a bit too noisy for table conversations...but we don't let that stop us ....
Beautiful restaurant, I love the intimate aura. Went with some girlfriends to catch up. Food was delicious!
Great service and food. We have been here several times and consistently we have great food and service.
Service was great food needs some serious help. Love the outdoor seating
Great food never disappoints . Great service and atmosphere .
Our server was wonderful. Very attentive and gave us excellent recommendations on wine. Swordfish special was out of this world. Lovely ambiance .
Samantha was a very, very nice server, and worked hard but had an unusual amount of tables the night we ate there, which hurt the regular service. Her support staff lacked. Additionally, my dinner reasonably good, but my wife's veal was not great. Was very thick cut and a bit tough with more of a heavy gravy rather than the demi glace that was supposed to be presented. Atmosphere is nice but food needs to rule to keep coming back.
Everything we ordered was delicious. Would have like a wider variety of choices. And the steak was outrageously priced, but yummy. Good service, nice atmosphere. Delicious spicy dirty martini.
Excellent selection with amazing service.
Food is always great.. outdoor dining accommodations wonderful.. very comfortable!!
Covid friendly excellent staff service and food. Birthday celebration that went without a hitch
The bar area is great lively and spacious! Drinks are amazing. Dining experience was just as nice! Great atmosphere very LIVELY. GOOD music playing but not too loud which is perfect. Our waitress was outstanding and patient with us! Overall fun night will definitely go back!!!! Crowd was a nice crowd too.
Hadn't dined at Novita in a while. Glad we went back. Good food and service. Burrata mozzarella was wonderful. Creamy and fresh. I also loved the pizza.
We had such a nice dinner outside - atmosphere was lovely, menu had so many options and the kids menu was perfect for my picky eaters, food was very good (excellent compared to other GC restaurants), cocktails were well-made, wine was delicious (I had an amarone that was very nice). Will definitely come back soon! Service was friendly and well-timed.
Wonderful as usual! Since we moved from CA in 2019, this restaurant has become our whole family’s favorite!
Everything was excellent- food, service, atmosphere (sat outdoors).
Great seating indoor or outdoor
Waiter forgot about our entrees and disappeared halfway through the night. When manager came over to “apologize” he was rude and dismissive. Would not go back.
Nice to meet up with friends in a very lovely outdoor setting -- and yummy brunch too!
Loved the outdoor setup, food was good and our waitress was very attentive and accommodating to our needs. Will be back again
