    Went for Mother’s Day and I’m sorry to say we were very disappointed. Had the lobster roll (a special of the day) which was barely filled with lobster (for the cost) had shell in it and the lobster had very little flavor- maybe it was previously frozen? It’s such a lovely space it really is a shame. We spent $200 dollars and it was really mediocre at best.

    Nouveau Monde has the feel of a Paris restaurant. Dark, and romantic with soft lighting. The service is top notch. Accommodating yet not hovering over you. They are there to clear and serve smoothly. The food! We had Scallops and the Salmon. Both superb! The appetizers were the Thai Steak Skewers and the Potatoes. Again fabulous! Thank you for a memorable evening to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary!

    Had a lovely Sunday evening at Nouveau Monde. Every aspect of our experience was excellent: food and wine, service, ambiance, etc. It's the first time in a long time that a restaurant has checked every box for us. Will definitely be returning.

    The ambiance is enchanting, providing the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable dining experience. The service staff, led by a knowledgeable and attentive sommelier, elevate the meal to new heights, offering expert wine pairings that complement every dish flawlessly. Behind the scenes, a talented chef orchestrates a symphony of flavors, crafting dishes that are as beautiful as they are delicious. And it's clear that this dedication to excellence extends beyond the kitchen, as the owner's passion for hospitality shines through in every detail. Having explored renowned Michelin 3-star restaurants in New York City and beyond, I can confidently say that this gem in Newtown reigns as the undisputed champion of the local dining scene, a culinary treasure that continues to captivate and delight with each visit.

    Second time in two weeks we have made a reservation through open table and the facility gave every indication of having ignored it; showed up early and they acted as they would fit us in, not provide the window table requested--and one was available during most of the meal. Otherwise, we have been to Nouveau Monde several times before and enjoyed the wine selection and the uniqueness of the entree selections. Note to infrequent guests: The number and selection of the once much-touted half bottles has decreased considerably from, even last fall. There are some.... but

    We tried Nouveau Monde for the first time for our Anniversary and so glad we did! Service was over the top, staff pays attention to detail. Seating was at a romantic table and the big wingback chairs were so comfy. All food was delicious and the sommelier paired our wine, which we also highly enjoyed. Great restaurant for a special occasion, we will definitely be back!
