Food was very good. Outside seating was a little chilly and table was too high for chairs so we had to move.

Just wasn’t good - the food came out cold, worst cream brûlée ever, it was hard getting our servers attention to get drink refills and although the ambience is nice, probably will not be back.

So glad to be able to go back to the Italian restaurant with the amazing sushi! I went at lunchtime with a friend. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. She was nice enough to mention that the drink I ordered was sweet, in case that's not what I'd like. Social distancing was maintained.

I have been dining at Terra Nova for about ten years. Initially the place projected an upscale feel, where diners were appropriately dressed, the food was great and the service was top notch. Sadly, things have declined. On my recent, most of the wait staff was better dressed than the actual diners. Sweatpants, gym shorts, t shirts, baseball caps on men while seated and sneakers was the dress code. The food, while hot and tasty, was slow to come to the table. I’m not sure what happened to the delicious bread I used to enjoy, but the cold, sad rolls offered did little to whet my appetite. Service was uneven and at one point the waitress dropped off lemons at the table. On her next visit, we asked what the lemons were for...her answer was she dropped them off at the wrong table!!

This place has the potential to be something. Right now it is something else! Yikes!

My advice to the management is to institute somewhat of a dress code, hire more or better staff and revisit some of your menu choices.

Wine flights are a great value. The sushi is good but chicken cutlet was a bit overdone. Great service.

I had the stuffed tilapia and it was awful. Fish was dry and the crab stuffing was nothing but bread.

Waitress was friendly but appeared to be rushed. House salad was very small. Bread was cold and only came with butter, no oil mix.

My meal was not fully cooked and vegetables were too large for a kabob.

Food was amazing for where it is. I'd definitely go back to try more of their very expansive menu. Service was bad but that is to be expected in south jersey. I was a server in NY and I would have been fired if I had been so lazy. But again, the food is better than I expected

Pricey restaurant but nice ambience esp bar area and the staff is great. Salad is very tiny but they make up for it with an excellent meal every time with a generous portion.

Overall was a good experience as usual however the young couple seated nearby was a distraction. They were unkept, noisey,and eventual dropped and broke a glass.
