Dear Naoko, Hello! Thank you for your visit and this review! We're glad that you enjoyed our restaurant! Could you please tell us, what dessert do you mean? If it was a "Pear", this is a dessert that is difficult to make, so we have a limited quantity every day. Therefore, unfortunately, this dessert could be eaten before your arrival :-( Looking forward to your e-mail with a dessert you wanted to try to rest.sova@seznam.cz

Our starters weren’t good, we’ve had the duck pate and the trio of meat terrine, the pate has a weird texture and the taste wasn’t great but eatable with bread and the caramelised onions but the terrine was horrible, extremely watery and tasteless.
Our mains were very good though ! I’ve had the veal cheeks with mash everything was beautiful. My friend has a steak, well cooked and very tasty.
When we’ve paid we have been asked if everything went fine and I told the waiter my opinion about the starters. As an answer I got “oh okay”, then he walked away... Just don’t ask

Dear Elo2310, Hello! Thank you for your visit, this review and sharing your opinion right in the restaurant. Because the waiter passed your words to the owners and chef, so we checked the starters you had after your visit and fixed it. We're glad that you enjoyed your main courses and ambience of the restaurant! Hope to see you again!

What a fantastic find! Our waiter was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was five star! We even received a little special drink after dinner that apparently the owner brewed! Wish we had more time in Prague so we could have returned!

Highly recommend

We had our first dinner in Prague at Sova. The food was or excellent quality, exquisite, very nicely presented and delicious. The ambience is also very nice and the staff is very friendly. We’ve visited several upscale restaurants while in Prague (including La Veranda and Zlatá Praha at InterContinental) but despite lower prices Sova is a very strong contestant to all of those in terms of food.

The staff was very accommodating our changing arrival time (road conditions from Berlin). Our table was waiting for us even when we arrived 90 minutes later. The food was excellent and very nicely prepared and presented. the waiting staff was friendly and provided a lot of help in selecting the right dishes and wine.
We had a very lovely dinner.

料理も美味しくコストパフォーマンスも高い。
何よりも、スタッフの対応が素晴らしかった。二人で、サラダ、スープ、メインと一品つづのオーダーだったが、嫌な顔もなく、料理を楽しんで下さいとの対応たった。他の、お客様にもおもてなす気持ちが見ていて分かった。
料理の美味しさと異国でのもてなしに、良い気持ちでディナーを終えた。
異国でのこんな気持ちの良い接客は初めて。
かと言って、堅苦しさはあらませんので、ご安心を!

We enjoyed our meal very much at Sova. Iwas not as impressed as reviews stated on TripAdvisor and other sites. The food was nice, but not as flavorful as expected-except for the goulash which was excellent. We are new to Prague and wanted to dine in a local authentic restaurant instead of tourist traps. My husband had the goulash and loved it. The duck was good but flavors simple, my husbands veal cheek dish he said was good but was not filled with many flavors and spices he could taste and some pieces of veal were chewy
The wait staff was lovely and I would recommend Sova and pricing is good. Ask for the back dining room. It is a nicer room-we were not able to sit there (not sure why)
