Love Terra Nova
We were sat at a table that was clearly to small for two people to comfortably sit at. We asked to move to a open booth that was next us. We were told we can’t be moved due to it being reserved for a group of 4. 15 minutes later a party of two sits there. I’ve never been to a restaurant where they would deny someone to sit in a open seat with a prior reservation. Just about all of their booths at that current time were parties of two so this was confusing to us. I suggest any parties of two to clearly state they want a booth and not a small dinette table. Overall the experience was just ok. The uncomfortable seating arrangement pretty much spoiled our entire experience from that point on.
Excellent restaurant. Highly Recommend. Food and service was excellent.
Good food . Large portions.
Well our reservation was for 8:45 and we weren't seated until 9:10.
Perfect as usual!
We ordered the Bourbon Mussel appetizer, they were fabulous!! Please KEEP this on the menu!!
Terra Nova is my daughter’s favorite restaurant. What a surprise it was for her to have lunch here for her 21st birthday. Our waitress was attentive and was helpful in our meal choices. It was nice to have a server that was knowledgeable on the drink & meal menu.
We attended a jazz festival at Rowan and had to find a place near Rowan. We are glad we stopped at one of our favorites! Once again romantic, incredible service and outstanding food! Great job! Thank you
I am a frequent guest there and they never disappoint! Their Happy Hour is excellent, great sushi!!!
Good food. Good service. Overpriced
Always good service and good food. Never disappoints.
Arrived early for our reservation and it was not an issue, we were seated immediately. Our waiter was personable and very polished. He laughed with us and made us feel comfortable. The food was excellent and the bill reasonable. Would definitely recommend Terra Nova for a great meal and experience.
Celebration dinner for our so s big promotion . We choose Terra Nova as the best local place to celebrate . Started with a full bottle of Prosecco and then ordered from their large menu .
Onion soup for everyone !
We were full and happy
Thanks Terra Nova
We waited 20-25 minutes past our reservation time before we were seated, which wasn't awful but worth noting. The waitress was absent for much of the latter part of our meal.
The food and service is always fabulous here. The only downside is the menu only caters to seafood and fish lovers. If you’re a steak eater, there is only a filet to choose from. If you prefer chicken, there are only 2 choices. I love seafood, but my husband doesn’t, and there is not much for him to choose from. I would love to see them add more steak and chicken entrees.
When the restaurant is this crowded, the banquet rooms should be opened for seating if there is not an event in them. We felt a bit rushed, our steaks were really too rare, but know better than to send steaks back! We come there all of the time, but not usually on a Saturday night, so we will keep coming, but stick to during the week. The bar crowd is a bit obnoxious as there was a large group that was walking around talking with their group, but kept their coats on the barstools, so nobody else could sit even though they were standing nearby mingling. Not a fault of the restaurant of course just a bit of a turn off.
Waiter talked me out of Chicken Terra Nova, looked good and what I was in the mood for, which he claims was just plain Chicken Parmigiana for $20.00...talked me into $27.00 Kabobs that were drowning in BBQ Sauce, horrible!! 70% vegetables that weren't even grilled. This waiter clearly wanted a larger bill and to head home early as we were also rushed. I may give it another try while visiting friends in the area and I will order what I want and not what is recommended.
Tuscan Stew was really good.
Terra Nova is one of my favourite restaurants it is excellent for happy hour and good for a great Italian meal. service is excellent management superb worth the trip even if you don’t live in the area one of the best Italian restaurants that you can not try at least once. it will be your favourite restaurant if you do
New Year’s Eve, great food & service. House was packed but the whole night was a 10. We go there now and then throughout the year. This was our 4th year in a row celebrating New Year’s Eve here. Never been disappointed, highly recommend Terra Nova.
Enjoyed a great New Year's Eve dinner. The food was very good and didn't take long at all. The bang bang tempura shrimp were amazing and the short ribs were phenomenal. The lava brownie was unreal!! The only disappointment was in the drink menu, I looked online in advance and apparently it was an older menu posted. I was a little disappointed none of the drinks I saw online were available. Not a big deal because the food was excellent!!
Great meal. News Years Eve with the wife. A little too loud in the fire place room. Next time will request a less noisey seating.
Food and service are always great. I had the Monterey Seafood Chioppino... Homemade pasta with muscles, clams, lump crab, shrimp and baby scallops. It was amazing. I highly recommend Terra Nova.
We went on Sat. night for an early New Years dinner with another couple an we were not
disappointed. We go around the holidays a lot an enjoy the overall ambiance. We arrived with happy hour still going on and had a cocktail at the bar before we were seated for dinner. The bar area was crowded with the happy hour crowd so you know this is the place to eat.Had a great meal as always I only had one complaint an that was with my Lobster Bisque, no lobster in it at all , it was still good but should of had some lobster meat in it.Everyone else in our group enjoyed their meals from the Sushi and onion soup to the the mushroom flatbread which was excellent..A must place to dine.
Sushi is great, everything else is just okay
The service we received on Friday night was the worst.! I don’t recall
The server’s name , because she didn’t introduce herself! Two people in the group had drinks already from the bar when we sat down, the other ordered a classic martini which in your menu is supposed to
Come with olives , which this one didn’t have, when we asked about the olives her answer was “sometimes they put olives sometimes they don’t”. We ordered small sharing plates, everyone got their food in different times , mine meal never came , so I asked her about it , again her response “ I forgot about it”! Also never asked us if we wanted another round of drinks This was not our
First time there , we enjoy going there, but this time was very disappointing!
Great experience, highly recommend!!
Always have great meals when eating at Terra Nova.
We had a family night out then took on a show at broadway 🎭. The food, service and atmosphere were all top notch. Thank you for a fabulous night.
Excellent from start to finish.
Nice night out before the holiday hustle & bustle fully sets in.
Our server was very polite and attentive. There were four of and we shared the Mediterranean Plate which was perfect for us, we even had a little bit left over. Our meals were delicious, the crab cakes were of great size, and stuffed with lots of crab, two of had those and we both brought home half of our dinners. One friend had ordered the filet which was amazing, & the other had the salmon with crabmeat. We enjoyed the atmosphere, very roomy and it didn’t feel like you were on top of one another.
This is one of our favorite restaurants, it's just we don't always get there as much as we would like due to location. The food was delicious, our drinks tasted great and the server was absolutely wonderful. We decided to try two sushi rolls for our appetizer and they did not disappoint. Next time we go back we decided that we are going to order a bunch of small plates and appetizers so we can taste more of their menu.
We were running late and they were very accommodating in moving or reservation 1/2 hr later.
The special cocktails were very tasty.
Of Note: We had the scallops wrapped in prosciutto. It was wonderful. It was almost large enough to be an entree.
They have several private rooms that were hosting events. Some noise from the music leaked into the dinning room and was a tad annoying, but livable.
We met family for dinner and it was like we were home, food was great, service was terrific and we were not rushed!
Everything was great, from the food to the atmosphere to the service! I love this restaurant and highly recommend it! I'm
I dine at Terra Nova about 4-5 times per year. I have always enjoyed their food, wine, and environment.
We were hoping to meet friends and enjoy the Happy Hour menu, but as usual the bar scene was too busy. We think one needs to be waiting at the door during opening to get a seat in the bar area. We tried several times and failed. However, table seating was ample and the meals were excellent as usual. The server was very attentive and accommodating. We eventually enjoyed a 3 hour dining experience.
