We join our family for a lunch. We had not seen them in a while, so we were all talking a once. The waitress was very nice & patience with us. The food was very good, everyone enjoyed whatever they ordered...from hamburger to pasta & crab, everything was delicious

My husband and I have heard about Terro Nova recently and decided to give it a try. We went for lunch and was extremely pleased with the large lunch menu. We both decided on a combo meal which consisted of a cup of soup, 1/2 a sandwich and salad. It was very good and extremely filling. We will definitely be back.

Every time we have dined at Terra Nova we have not been disappointed. The service, food and atmosphere are always excellent and they have a good selection of wines.

My husband and I ordered sushi for an appetizer...it was amazing! I wish I could say the same for the entrees. My husband ordered lobster ravioli and I ordered the crab cakes. His was good, not the best but my crab cakes were disappointing. They were heavily breaded and not much crab to them. I would go back again but mainly for the sushi.

Overall we had a good dinner. Service was a little slow because there were several big groups there. Wasn't thrilled with our seat by the kitchen door but lived with it. Food was good. I got lobster ravioli with lemoncello sauce and crab. Salad was small and so-so. My spouse got pasta with shrimp and scallops, but they were very small. My drink was a peach coconut mojito, and that was really good! I like the good variety on their menu, always lots of good choices.

This was my 5th time here in about 8 years. On all but one occasion, the kitchen service was very slow. Waitress was attentive but delays in getting food to table persist. Food is a bit overpriced. Sushi bar is present but rolls are small, albeit with some incentive types. Mainstay is Italian dishes which are decent but overpriced. They do have a kids' menu. A bar with live music is also present.

Probably not going back anytime soon. Better options exist in the area.

I have always enjoyed Terra Nova, but for lunch I thought the prices were high and the food was just okay. It wasn’t bad, but it was just okay.

The special steak came out extremely well when asked for medium rare. Waiter did replace but the steak sauce was just horrible. Coffee rub, bad choice. Plus everyone was finished eating and waiting on me to finish my steak which I didn't. The Tuscan stew was borderline average. The gnocchi with sausage was very good. I did call restaurant to inform them. They said they were sorry and offered nothing.

We arrived at Terra Nova at 5:15pm, checked in for our res & were able to seat ourselves in the nearly empty bar area.

All in all the food was good, as usual, but we didn’t leave there until close to 8 pm. Service was slow to the point we were ready to leave. It took over 35 minutes to bring 1 order of their very good sushi, then dinner was over an hour late. We went early for a reason, but it was so slow that we got home later than we wanted despite our planning.

Just disappointed. No one made a dent in their dinner because we weren’t hungry by the time it arrived.

We had a wonderful dinner. The service was excellent as was the food. I had the Sonoma Skewers with tender beef , chicken, shrimp and grilled vegetables over rice were delicious and my husband loved his chicken dish. Terra Nova is one of our favorite places. Their Happy Hours are great, too!

Sushi was delicious, the house salad consisted of romaine lettuce with one grape and a tasteless dressing. Two of the three entrees were not tasty and the third entree was average. We were there on Easter Sunday so I’m not sure if that had anything to do with it but, I probably would not go back

We had a great time, but our small group was seated in the same room as 2 large (one was 16 and one was at least 22+) parties so that made conversations hard and noise level increased. Great service and specials as always. We love Terra Nova.

Made Open Table reservation for 8pm. We arrived at 6:45, knowing that we would be waiting at the bar after checking in with hostess. Didn't know we wouldn't actually get seated until 8:25. Even our server seemed surprised we weren't being seated and checked with the hostess. Didn't matter. Another 20 minutes went by.
Flatbreads were flat. Just a bunch of arugula and other toppings plopped on top of tasteless cracker bread. Sushi, as always, was fresh and delicious. Short ribs tasted like pot roast. Blackened scallops were flavorful, but the pasta they sat on has zero flavor. Stop boiling the garlic. You need to saute it a bit to bring out the flavor. And don't forget to add the salt to the pot after it boils.

I had a reservation and was taken immediately to a table upon arrival. It took a while for a server to come by, and she didn't stay very long. The next time she passed by, we got her attention and was able to order. The food and wine was absolutely amazing- there is nothing I haven't liked.

We were celebrating two family birthdays here. I always pass Terra Nova taking my daughter to gymnastics and have been wanting to try it for months. I thought this was the perfect opportunity. Everyone LOVED it and we can’t wait to go back again. It’s only downfall is how loud it is. Five of us were at a nice large table but often times has a hard time hearing each other.

Have not been to Terra Nova in about 6 years. We stopped then because the service had declined substantially, the food was fair at best and the condition of the facility (booths, floor, etc.) left a lot to be desired. And unfortunately, nothing has changed but the prices have increased. Sad, really sad!!

So, Terra Nova is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. They have excellent Italian food, a Crudo bar and even Sushi. I brought friends there for the first time raving about it and they fell short. The food was excellent as usual, but after they seated our party they apparently forgot to assign a server. So after 15 minutes I had to go ask for one. And then they brought me the wrong beer. It was not busy at all so I'm not sure what the issue was, maybe just newer staff. I still love the place and will go back. Everyone has an off day.
