    Loved the ambiance of the lounge, I wish it was busier though. My group were the only people in there and it felt awkward eating and celebrating in an empty restaurant. Overall, the food, service and atmosphere were fabulous.

    Specifically made reservation for Standard seating, was given high top and told Sorry... Slow slow slow service....50 dollars /choice credits very high for small portions....steak frites was not prepared as steak frites usually is....on the bland side. Dessert took forever..but was delicious. They need to get their act together.

    I'll describe Novelle as a sexy adult only lounge. The place is stunning from the entry way all the way to the outstanding DJ booth. I loved it. Will definitely go back.

    We attended Novelle as it was the only venue with tables available at our required time. We did not have any flexibility due to a concert. It has a bar atmosphere and we enjoyed the live music. The food was good, the portions were on the small side and the prices were high. Our major complaint was actually the drinks. We all tried a different drink on the specialty menu and were disappointed to a person. In addition, when we ordered our normal favorites, they were not good either. Service was nice, but slow. Emma Jude (the live music) was amazing. We would give Novelle a second chance, but not prioritize a return visit.

    Made reservations for high top table for four people and they did not accommodate. Arrived early because website says bar opens at 11am. Nope, they open at 5pm folks. The waitress/bartender was very nice. The food was okay. Drinks are expensive so expect to pay $75 per couple for a good time. All in all it wasn’t bad, but I probably won’t be coming back any time soon.

    We went for the Diva Brunch for Pride Weekend. The price had not been published ahead of time and was higher than I expected. However, the server was super friendly and the drinks were delicious. The hostess asked us what our tolerance for sound was and seated us accordingly. I would go back again.

    Went for drag brunch which cost $50 per person and waited for an hour and a half until we left since they were doing nothing. Everyone who paid to see the show looked quite upset.

    Although the menu is somewhat limited, what they do have is very good. The restuarant and bar area are beautiful and worth a trip. Our server provided top notch service. Signature drinks were excellent and so nice that there was entertainment. Overall great experience.

    An outstanding Sunday brunch! The staff was pleasant and attentive. The frittata had fresh, very tasty ingredients and came to the table hot. The steak and eggs were prepared perfectly. The smoked salmon was the best I’ve had in a long time and the plating was beautiful. The red onions meant for the salmon were also very good with the steak. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a brunch experience outside of the typical buffet.

    I frequent Novelle often due to the combination of affordability, exceptional food and great service; however, as a result of my experience last evening, I give pause as to whether I would venture back. Specifically, I was charged $26 for an espresso martini, but on April 29, 2022, I was charged $15 for the same martini. The price has increased 58% in 4 weeks, which I find unreasonable. I was also charged $8.50 for a service charge, which I am still unclear as to what that was for. Are we being charged for the servers to bring us our food? Although the food was amazing, as always, the questionable bill has left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Food was great. Service was prompt. We were warned when seated that there was a back up in the kitchen, why I don’t know as the place was maybe 1/2 full. It took an hr before we were served our entrees way too long a wait. In fact we flagged down our waitress to ask when our food would be showing up and at that point there was 3 tables waiting in front of us. Also the drinks which cost $15 and up are very weak

    Service was extremely slow and not at all attentive. Poor customer service. Observed many other patrons who actually became angry and were not happy. Patrons were actually changing their seating to seat at the bar where they thought they would get better service! Unfortunately the bar was packed and service not much better. Food was fair and small in quantity. $20 for a glass of requested “house” wine is way out of line totally unacceptable and inappropriate. Not at all competitive or consistent with other restaurants in this category. Restaurant was grossly understaffed for a Saturday night so poor service was not a surprise, this is a major failure. Very difficult to be forgiving even considering the current issues within the restaurant industry as this is a larger higher end establishment. Very disappointed, will not return.

    The food, service, cleanliness and noise level were all fantastic. The only down size were the drinks. For the price the mixed martini drinks were tasteless and seemed to have more mix than alcohol in them. For $14.00-$15.00 plus tax I expected a better drink

    Not impressed. Was looking forward to having dinner with my wife but after walking in there was no attention to us whatsoever. All employees were more focused on decorating for Halloween than us. After 20 minutes someone finally came to our table. Once we got our drinks and food our waitress disappeared for another 20 to 25 minutes. Since my food was spicy I needed something else to drink so I had to stop eating. Never again.

    We had tickets to a show at the Mohegan Sun and looked online for a restaurant that we could go to before the show so based on the menu we choose Novelle. When we arrived at the table we waited quite awhile before a waiter came to our table and then were told the menu was not the full menu and that they only had a game night menu which was only about 10 items. We decided to just go with the very limited menu because we didn’t have time. We ordered drinks and sat there for 15 minutes and no drinks and it was the same experience with other diners after 15 minutes we walked out.
