Great place with a lot of choices. I had an excellent steak with shrimp in bacon and my wife had sushi (I stole some of it also).
Sushi was expensive though, that’s the only thing. Everything else was more than great.

In a word disappointing. My swordfish was dry, the risotto lacked flavor. There were 6 of us and everyone agreed the food is just not that good. The atmosphere is great, the waiter was very good. But it is about the food. I guess I've eaten at too many good restaurants and I can't stand paying for less than average food.

Our food was terrible. Our service was terrible. We were sat in a corner. The noise level was ridiculous. This is the second time we’ve been here recently. It was just as bad last time. We figured we’d give it a second chance last night. I used to be a regular, but everything has gone so far downhill, I will not be back.

Food and service were excellent. Only recommendation is more vegetarian options. The gnocchis you would think would be ok for vegetarians to eat but the cream sauce is made with chicken stock.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area. The atmosphere is great and the decor is beautiful. The food is excellent and very consistent. Our waitress was very good, unfortunately I don't remember her name. I had the lobster ravioli which is really good, with actual pieces of lobster inside and chunks of lump crab meat on top. She had the braised short ribs which were b utter soft and the risotto was delicious. We have yet to have a dish we haven't liked at Terra Nova.

Our waiter was obviously inexperienced. He had no idea what the specials were for a Saturday night. When asked if the crab cakes were broiled or fried, we were told that first their fried then their broiled. We felt very rushed. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we were seated by 6:35. We received our bill by 7:20. Also, two people in our party of six received their meals at least 5 minutes or more after the other four. For the services and cost of the meal, we won't be going back.

Nice place to eat. I often go here for a full meal or a few drinks. It is good for a nice quiet evening with friends and family. Not too original when it comes to the vegan options, but a vegan can make due with what is on the menu.

We sat at high top, which was annoying. There are many tables in odd locations, such as in the vestibule/entry area. Food and service are ok. But the menu is quite pricey.

We were greeted by friendly hostess and promptly seated. Our server came to take our drink orders immediately. She promptly returned and answered several questions we had about the menu. We ordered with several changes requested. Our food arrived with all our requested changes. Our server checked back several times to see if we needed anything.

Good food in a noisy atmosphere, but I don't think that can be helped. Limited children's menu and vegetarian options. Staff was friendly and helpful. Noticed when leaving that bar area was very popular.

Server, Lindsey, was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had one of the specials and husband ordered off the menu. Both dishes were delicious. My fish was cooked to perfection, served over fresh linguine. His crab cakes were meaty and perfectly seasoned. Blue Point Oyster starter - magnificent.

I came in for my reservation was seatef at a hightop in the corner near the bathrooms. I waited 15 minutes and no one came to serve me. I saw an empty corner chair at the bar so I sat down at the corner of the bar.Again I waited another 10 minutes to the bar tender/server finally acknowledge me… She gave me a fork but no knife and a napkin. She finally took my drink order and finally gave me a water. No wine yet ! I ordered my dinner which was the Fishermens penne and I received the smallest bay scallops I have ever seen. they looked like the top of the eraser on a pencil. that’s disgraceful ! the lights went out and flickered three times.when I got my bill I gave them my credit card. they gave me back a piece of paper and told me to fill out the paper with the bill and everything from the food bill, the bar bill and the tax and I was to total it and then sign it… That’s a disgrace I will probably never go back there again very very very dissatisfied with the service and the food especially the service I had asked two bartenders to get me water.Unacceptable.
