Terra Nova were not busy at 3:00p on Sunday afternoon. We had to wait for everything ... drinks ... appetizers ... soups ... then the main meal. It was disappointing because I've been there when the service has been considerably better and when the restaurant was busy. I in particular was disappointed because I am a regular customer. I made reservations over a month ago. The Bishop of the Diocese of Camden was with us and I called ahead of time to let Terra Nova he was a part of my party.

So to conclude, restaurant was not crowded and service was very slow. If this was my first visit, based upon our experience, I would not return.

We always eat at Terra Nova when visiting our son who attends Rowan. Never disappoints! We were celebrating his 21st birthday this time. Food, drinks & service were excellent. We look forward to returning.

The restaurant was buzzing with Friday night traffic but the experience, food and cocktails were delightful. Perfect for a girls night out albeit a little pricy!

The oysters were delicious. Nice wine selection
Lobster bisque and salad yummy. Veal chop Parmesan was good. However the filet with potatoes was over seasoned with Rosemary. So be ware if you do not like rosemary
The service was good just a little slow filling the water glasses

Everything is always good at Terra nova. Their food is excellent. My only fault is that they don’t have my favorite desert anymore. Lol. (Bacon pecan pie)

We had a party of 4 in which 1 person ordered the Veal Chop which was excellent; 1 person ordered Crab-Filled Salmon which was excellent; and 2 people ordered steak and it was noted that it was "very grainy and not a good cut of meat". Over all, meals and service were very good and we would return.

The meals we had the other night was excellent - crab cakes for me and Chicken Parm for my husband.
The service was great. Can't ask for anything more than that.

Three of us ordered the skewers and we loved them. My husband had the corn chowder and Tuscan stew, and while he liked them, he found them to be salty.

everyone had a great time. My companion and I had been to Terra Nova before and it was always great. Everybody this time felt the food was great. The waiter was energetic and provided great service. The persons in our party that had never been to Terra Nova before said they would most definitely return to Terra Nov in the near future. Thanks for a great evening.

Seated right away (with reservations). Bar was packed but it was happy hour. Server, Lindsey, was very kind and patient. Bang Bang shrimp was really good. Had filet special with shrimp and husband had veal. Everything was outstanding.

Another tasty meal at Terra Nova. The food was very good - we had bang bang shrimp (theirs is among the best I have had), salmon, and a flatbread. Everything was to our liking. My wife had the rum cake with chocolate ganache for dessert and that was very good too. Our server was friendly and attentive. All in all, we were very happy with our visit. This restaurant is local to us, and we are glad to have such a place nearby.

We love dining here. The variety of food helps with a large group, everyone ordered something they liked instead of settling like they do at other restaurants. The food is always wonderful. My husband loves the lobster bisque. We celebrated my husbands 61st birthday.
