The oysters were delicious! Food was good - my date ordered chicken terra nova aka chicken parm - he said it was a bit salty. I had crab stuff salmon - very tasty. Our waitress was very nice and attentive to us while there. Will visit again.

Since New Jersey lifted its mask mandate and my S.O. & I are both vaccinated, we wanted to celebrate the weekend and the holiday with a night out. We also came here for my birthday in January and we have been itching to come back. TN did not disappoint! The food was fantastic, our server was attentive and friendly, and drinks were delicious. Thank you and we are looking forward to coming back during the summer.

First day with no masks and bar seating! Of course we had to visit our favorite place. As always, food and service were excellent. We sat in the bar area it was was a great vibe seeing so many people out. Sushi was fresh & delicious. My husband had the Spaghetti Crab Pasta which was outstanding. We can’t wait to return!

We took my friend for her 60th birthday dinner. It was delicious and the service was fantastic! It was a little noisy and some background music could probably help with that!

It was really lovely and our server and everyone else was really great!

Our drinks, appetizers and meal were delicious. We decided to order dessert which was a mistake. Ordered the brownie but it was totally raw inside, looked cooked on the outside. Could not eat. It’s not a chocolate lava cake.
We usually have an excellent experience at Terra Nova. We will still go back there.

We sat outside on the patio which was very nice . The food (apps, tend to be better there than entrees) were all good. The service was prompt but not friendly from the one waitress the other was very nice . They were sharing service that day between them . I asked ,when I arrived ,for separate checks and she said ok but then when the check was delivered it was all on one bill . I’m not the person who always gets separate checks but sometimes it’s more fair depending on the situation. She then refused to separate and it just was way more difficult than it had to be . In the end she shorted herself because I Venmoed my friends and she lost a veteran bartenders tip . The prices since the pandemic have spiked to a crazy level at this restaurant. I could go to Ruth’s Chris for these prices .

Great drinks, nice bar area. Menu just ok, really needs to be redone. Same menu for many years. Had everything on it over the years. Really, just go for good drinks and a dinner I do not have to cook.

What a find! Service was outstanding, drinks incredible and the food was unbelievable. Living in Mickleton, we don’t have too many restaurants that are at this level, so it was quite a find. We will be back and recommend to anyone who enjoys a great overall dining experience.

First time dining there, day before Mother's Day. Very busy and noisy. Server was ok. Food was good. Everyone at my table had something different on the menu, from risotto to california rolls. Tables seems to be spaced which was comfortable. Will go back again to see if it was just too many customers for servers or if its the norm.

I've been here on several occasions and selected this restaurant for my birthday dinner with friends. I was disappointed to be seated in the banquet room away from the ambience the restaurant offers. There was also no music which sometimes created an uncomfortable atmosphere as our conversation and other tables conversations carried throughout the room.
