Friday Night with a Friend

Dined on April 22, 2016

The night was busy but the service was perfect. We could talk but we weren't forgotten about by the waiter. Food was fresh and tasty. The noise in many restaurants prevent customers from enjoying conversation. Terra Nove was the exception. Although tables were full, we could have a conversation without straining over noise from other tables. This is becoming one of my favorite restaurants.

From the the inattentive service to the spongy chicken in my girlfriend's fettucini alfredo, this restaurant disappointed us for the last time. We only went back because we had a gift card. Even free won't be enough of an incentive to get us to return.

love this place

Dined on April 11, 2016

love this place. calm setting and atmosphere. perfect for any occasion. buisness lunch, romantic date, receptions or just out with the family or the hanging with the guys or the gals.. service was very friendly and quick. I had the lobster bisque....AWESOME!!!! and the others all had something different. No one complained about any of their food. It was all GREAT!!! Even the waitress was quick and patient even though we all felt that when she would come to check if we needed anything she didn't really wait for everyone to respond before she walked away. Other than that I would recommend this place to any and everybody.

Dinner Date

Dined on March 29, 2016

I went to dinner with a young lady for our first date. The atmosphere was very relaxed and it was easy to have conversation over dinner. The waiter was pleasant and accommodating. The food tasted really good and there was a good size portion. The décor was fitting for an Italian restaurant and gave a person the sense that they were having an authentic experience. I would definitely go there again.

Fantastic Family Gathering!!

Dined on March 5, 2016

We had eaten at this restaurant before and my husband had suggested it again for an impromptu dinner get together. I googled the restaurant for a phone number to make a reservation and saw the 'find a table' feature. I had never seen or used a feature like this before but gave it shot. Best thing since sliced bread!! It was very easy to use! I was even able to make changes to our reservation after 3 more members of our family decided to join us! No fuss no muss .... We had 9 in our group and had a great seating arrangement. It felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves. Our waitress, the food, the ambiance made our family get together even more special! We will certainly return to this great restaurant for many more great meals! We have passed along our great experience to all our friends and hope to return soon!! Thank you Terra Nova!!

Dined on March 4, 2016

What started out as an early dinner, turned into an extended happy hour. The bartender was fantastic, and the drinks were so on point that you didn't want to leave. Ended up having more friends able to attend, which is always a delight, and the hostess was fine with holding our table until everyone in our large party arrived. Special thanks to Melissa for turning an not so great experience into a wonderful one. We will be back!

Anniversary Dinner

Dined on February 23, 2016

This is our second time at Terra Nova and we were very pleased with our meal. I especially enjoyed the east coast oysters both for the flavor and special pricing on Mondays. I was a little disappointed in that in my booking on Open Table I had remarked that we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and Terra Nova seemed to overlook that notation. Otherwise, I heartily recommend this restaurant.

Good food & ambiance, service could be better!

Dined on February 14, 2016

I will start by saying that it was Valentine's Day....evening dinner at 6:30 for two and it was an over nice dining experience. Our waitress seemed stressed but there open tables and no apparent crush of customers coming in. She rushed us through the soup/salad and brought dinner out and put it in front of us before we were ready for that course and rushed us through that as well. But the food was good!

Dined on February 14, 2016

The food was no doubt outstanding but the service was horrible. Entrees were served before we were done with our salads. The waitress tried multiple times taking plates away with food still on them. She would ask in passing if we needed anything, moving so quickly that she was gone by the time I started speaking. After the entree plates were cleared I still had half a glass of wine left so I said I wanted to finish it before deciding on anything else. 5 minutes later she brought the check with no offer of dessert or coffee. She made us feel rushed from the moment we sat down which created a very disappointing dining experience.

Very nice early dinner / late lunch with family after seeing a nearby theater show. We took my parents for a Christmas gift and they really enjoyed it. Good food and they were great about handling a peanut allergy for one of our group to make sure she had safe choices to enjoy. Will be back in the future.

Best meal I've had in a while!

Dined on January 16, 2016

Superb service. Took my lady for her birthday, and she loved it. Every dish was amazing - from the raw bar (shrimp and ahi tuna) to the drinks (cranberry mojito and espresso martini). We each ordered a special for entree, and couldnt decide whose was better. Live music at bar started around 8, which was great becaude we heard it from our table (a singer and acoustic guitar. Definitely recommend, and will go again.

Even though it was Christmas Eve and rather crowded, we received very good service and the food was very good. They did not rush us even though it was crowded. Have eaten there in the past for lunch and the lunch menu was exceptional. Would recommend this as a good place to have lunch or dinner.
