The woman at the front desk was rude. Called us “old school” because we asked for a paper menu. Overall, she wasn’t welcoming as the first contact when you walk in. Two of the four dinners were delicious; other two were dry. We could overlook the dinners not being great, since we do generally like the restaurant, but the rudeness is unacceptable.

I apologize that the vernacular used seemed rude, however I can promise you it not intended as such. The hostesses we have on Saturdays are, while young, seasoned and care for our guests. While I'm sure she was merely trying to inject some levity into our current covid situation, where physical menus are rare due to restaurant safety protocols, its clearly came off the wrong way. I will be sure to speak to the entire host staff to be more careful and considerate in the future. Thank you.

We went for lunch on a warm day and sat outside. So nice! The food and service were excellent. We will be back for the food, service and especially, the blood orange margaritas. Yum!

Have dined there many times over the years and the last few times, I find the menu in need of updating. The portions are very small and when I have brought guests with me the last several times, they mentioned it also and thought the food was very bland to the taste.

Lovely setting and it needs to kick it up a notch again!

Food was mediocre and service was terrible. Servers took my food before I was even finished, and the entire staff had an attitude. Food was very overpriced compared to quality. Portions were small, food wasn't fresh, and vegetables and fish were overcooked. Definitely will not be going back.

We enjoyed dining outdoors where all Covid safety standards were carefully in place. The food, as always, was excellent. The Mosaic of Swordfish on paella risotto and the Atlantic Grilled Salmon with medley of roasted vegetables were fresh, well prepared, and delicious Don’t miss the clear pear cosmopolitans or a draft beer from the selection of locally brewed beers. Chefs Wahlberg and Fitzgerald and their kitchen staff consistently prepare great seafood, steak, and poultry dishes and offer very good appetizers, soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches. Great for every day, a date, special occasion or gatherings with family or friends.

Our dinner was $200 for two people and while the food wasn’t bad, it was incredibly mediocre for the price point. We really wanted to love it but it was just so average. The ambiance is beautiful but if we ever go back, it’ll probably just be for drinks and the view. Ultimately, I’m disappointed.

This place is a gem! second time here (for my b-day) and it was better than the first time. My parents were visiting from FL and they are super picky about restaurants; they were in awe at how amazing this place was. Food, ambiance, the staff, the attention EVERYTHING was amazing! I seriously want to come back here next weekend just for fun. I cannot wait for the summer and get a table outdoor. I give Alma Nove a 6 out 5 :)

My wife and I had a great dinner. The food (shared appetizer & two entrees) outstanding. Exactly what Alma Nove stands for. Though the service was slow because our table was in the bar area and the bar tender, very professional and friendly, just had too much to take care of. We love table linen: it dresses up the table and is hygienically clean. We're glad that alma Nove is almost back to where it was when we got to know the restaurant (a couple of years ago). Nice experience. We'll be back.

Our experience was very positive. Felt safe, clean and with distancing they take pride in the customer and staff safety. Every aspect of our time was so outstanding we went back the next day for lunch and was again amazed with the experience. From drink to desert and everything in between was outstanding. The flavors in each dish are very delicious nothing I have ever had before and presentation was very articulate and inviting. The drinks were creative and left me wanting more. Appetizers were perfect and fresh we had cod cakes and Calamari. Now desert just blew me away with the thought out flavors in each bite just the right amount. I left fully satisfied and already planning my return. Lunch was as equally enjoyable. The staff all knowledgeable, efficient and pleasant. Everyone seemed happy and timing was not rushed. Our overall experience is 100% satisfaction in all areas of the experience. Fabulous simply a must try.

Alma Nove takes food allergies very seriously. This put us at ease, as they are very proactive and allowed us to really enjoy the dining experience. The food was delicious, the ambiance excellent. The waitstaff friendly and reliable. We did note how quiet the restaurant was; and not just because of limited seating. They Partitioned the tables in a very classy way. I suggest they keep these as they do cut down on ambient noise and provides the diners with a touch of privacy...My kids loved the dinner and as one said "I can't wait to go back" Thank you Alma Nove for making my sons "family fancy birthday dinner" such a wonderful night out for us! We will be back!

We have never had a bad meal at Alma Nova They practice safe distance and take it one step further to call when you get there to verify if your table is ready and they won’t have too many people at the front. Our server was well trained and attentive and she gave us a good dessert suggestion

All employees wearing masks, get barcode for menu at hostess station
Oysters were fresh with pear mignonette
Brought me a bolognese, but I ordered the lamb shank. They apologized, offered free desserts, and took the other meals away to be re-fired so we could eat together
Creme brulee dessert was exactly as expected, served with two very soft and delicious cookies
Tons of free parking
There is outdoor seating available with tons of heaters and a fire

Everything was great once we sat down and got water. However, I made reservations for 7:00pm and didn’t get seated until 7:40pm. The previous diners apparently took their time and exceeded the 90 min window. If you’re going to have these rules in place, then follow them. The manager on duty has a lot to learn when dealing with this situation. She was pretty rude. We were already unhappy that our time was not respected, and to have her tell us to wear our masks until we get water served was ludicrous! She already broke “the covid law” with the 90 mins and now we have to wear our masks until water is served? Please! We didn’t because after waiting 40 mins to sit down (past our reservation) we then had to wait another 10 mins for water!
Tony was our waiter. He was the best! The food was phenomenal. The manager was THE WORST! Heavy blonde woman ( wish I got her name). I’d let her go. She has no understanding of how she could have handled that better. Not sure I’d go back because of her. Despite how good everything else was. I have a 5 star but she gets zero stars!

Hi Ms. Kelly, I apologize for seating you late. It seems you arrived @7:05, and sat @7:31. Due to current restrictions we only have a few spots to fit 6 people, and it seems the people before you did not adhere to the time guidelines as expressed by us and the state .The state has said that masks must remain on until consuming food and drink. For more information on current guidelines please visit Mass.gov. The manager didnt do anything wrong other than not apologize enough, for that Im sorry.

We loved the drinks and food! The bread and butter was delicious! We tried a Caesar salad, homemade gnocchi, lamb shank, duck breast, and the calamari and everything was delightful! I highly recommends his restaurant! Also our waitress Stephanie was awesome, she was so friendly and had great recommendations for what to try!
