Terra Nova Ratings and Reviews
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
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!!
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.
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!
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 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.
Left standing by the door for quite awhile, despite having reservations. The Caesar salad, onion soup and Oysters Rockefeller were delicious. There is an upcharge if you order the Caesar instead of the House Salad. The short ribs with rice was tender and delicious, however the two different sauces seemed to clash.
Fun date night with my husband of 24 years! Great place to go pre-theater, if you leave extra time for the wait.
The menu was a pleasant mix of Italian and quality Sushi style cuisine. Our family of 5 enjoyed different varieties on the menu. We were all exceptionally surprised with the level of service and the flavors of our dishes made the evening a wonderful success.
This was our third or fourth visit to Terra Nova and like each of our other dining experiences there, we were not disappointed. The decor is rustic and inviting. The atmosphere is comfortable and cozy. The wait staff pleasant and attentive. The food is fantastic. This was the first time we`d ever tried the sushi and we were glad we did. It was definitely top notch. This is a restaurant we would absolutely recommend trying.
Food was really good. Staff not so much. Well let me say the waitress was petty rude and apparently didn’t like to refill water. The host who sat us walked away towards our table without saying anything like follow me. Pretty sure he didn’t say anything at all after I checked in. The women who cleared our plates was lovely though. Would recommend if you don’t mind being treated like you don’t matter by the majority of the staff.
My new favorite place! Love everything about it. The ambiance, food, and service is excellent. This is the first restaurant that even had the proper ice cubes for different drinks. Now that is attention to detail. So glad we had Jessica as our waitress. Very knowledgeable about the food and she made it a great night for us. We will definitely be back.
I asked them to allow us to linger long over the meal. They completely left us alone and we were there with friends for close to 4 hours. I took good care of the waitress b/c not once during that whole time through a busy dinner shift where she could have turned the table over a couple of times were we rushed or feel hurried by her in any way. Really appreciated the time to connect with dear friends and not feel pushed.
I love this place,iI feel at home here. But they shouldn't seat anyone near the kitchen doors. Those two tables that are situated near the kitchen, should be removed. I've been there twice within the last two weeks, and they tried to sit me and my date near the kitchen. He refused the sitting. The next time I brought my son in for a special occasion. I refused the sitting. Otherwise everything was great..
