Nova Kitchen & Bar
Main courses did not come out due to “lack of sushi rice”.
We waited about an hour for four appetizers.
One cocktail wasn’t made properly. Overall would not recommend.
Since the moment we got there the whole staff was an absolute delight. We made reservations and they attended us real quick. It was my friends bday and they actually gave us a private room which ended up making the whole night a really great experience. The cocktails taste really good but are quite strong. Our waitress was named Laura and she was such a sweetheart. She was really polite and her recommendations on the menu were on point.
Great service and great quality fish. Definitely worth the price. I love how their rolls had light rice so you could really taste the fish. The restaurant had very cool trendy vibes with good music and beautiful decor. One of my new favorite spots.
Great place! Interesting and tasty food and cocktail choices. Will not hesitate to come back again in the future. One thing I had hoped for was a special birthday dessert or something for my boyfriend as we were out celebrating, but no big deal!
Our spot was private although it was not the best area in the restaurant but all good since no people constantly passing by us. The food and presentation was great and the restrooms were nice and clean. We plan to go back there again and this time would like to be where the bar area is. Thank you.
Amazing service but the best part was the food!! it was OUTSTANDING!! One of the best meals for sure!
Great service. Great recommendations. Great food!
Yummy cuisine, not just food artisanal drinks, great service, beautiful ambiance, good modern (pop electronic) music, and a top notch covid clean atmosphere.
First time here. The food and service was beyond amazing! Will definitely be returning.
Amazing service. Sushi was fresh and drinks were great. Overall a great place to take a date or hang out with friends!
Excellent. They are attentive and the fooo is amazing. I love that it's sharable. I highly recommend the shrimp tempura.
I absolutely loved the ambiance and the food was amazing.
Celebrated my 25th birthday here and had a great time! The restaurant was clean and felt safe the entire time. All personnel wear masks and ensure that CDC and local guidelines are being followed. The food was delicious as always and the cocktails are presented wonderfully and taste great. Thank you!
Great meal. The specialty cocktails were a little tough to find the right one so try multiple.
The steak was amazing! Will definitely go back again!
It was nice way to spend New Year Eve during this pandemic! Can’t wait till they are back to normal regular service!
Came here for New Year’s Eve, had a wonderful time. Great outdoor ambience with a hip vibe. Service was on point from our waiter to bus boy. Food was really good and they offered happy hour drink specials. Felt super safe during covid.
We went here on Xmas day and it was a wonderful experience. The drinks were great and the food was delicious. The brussel sprouts were on the saltier side so they took it off our menu. They also gave us a bottle of hand sanitizer for dining with them, which was a nice gesture. The ambiance is chill and totally reminds me of a Vegas restaurant in OC. 10/10 would come back.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The server was awesome and every suggestion she made was spot on. Will definitely fine here again. Quite possibly my new favorite restaurant.
The food was very good, the service good, however the plate of one of the persons coming with me took too long to be served, we already finished eating and we asked what happened with her order and looks like in the kitchen they forgot to do it, it came 5 minutes after.
It was like being in Vegas but not in Vegas. The aesthetic is beautiful. Service is on point. Wagyu ribeye melts in your mouth and their drinks make you want to party!
Food tasted exceptional. Portion size small. Service a little on the slower side but definitely worth the wait. Staff very friendly.
Best Asian fusion restaurant around. Sushi was excellent and the shareables were delicious. Everything we ordered was delicious.
I really liked the food. I got the teriyaki chicken, it was so good. My fiancé got sushi, she really enjoyed the volcano roll.
Incredible service! Beautiful socially distant layout with multiple heaters and fire pits to keep you warm. The food is spectacular and their shishito peppers are the best I’ve ever had.
Flavors were very good. The beef quality was grade A. The service was attentive. I'm digging the concept of small plates and preparation celebrating the elements.
Our server was so sweet. Overall 100/10 in service. Everyone is so nice.
Beautiful intimate atmosphere...delicious food and drinks! Definitely coming back.
The freshest sushi I ever had in my life. Delicious.
We celebrated my wife’s birthday. Excellent experience. Wonderful food. Great service. The ambiance was really nice. I would definitely recommend it. Thank you
Father in Law’s Birthday. Was given a private room with very good service. Very pleased.
The food was outstanding. We ordered sushi and several items from the regular menu. All 6 of us said we would like to come back. The shrimp tempera roll, 5 elements dumplings, seafood fried rice, octopus and scallion pancakes were our favorites.
Service is great. They were helpful and picked up empty dishes quickly. The staff is friendly too.
They are a bit pricy but the quality of the food is worth it. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful outdoor space, very nice for either a nice dinner with the other or a meal with all the friends or co-workers.
Loved this place! Great Service (Andres), cool atmosphere and Good Food: Pork Belly Bao, 5 element Dumplings, Miso Cod and the Chocolate Cake!
Our server was awesome, the food and my girlfriend even got a very special gift for her birthday! I’ll will definitely be coming back on our next trip to SoCal!
Our service was really poor - food is good but extremely expensive for what it is
Hands down, my favorite restaurant! The service is always impeccable. The ambiance is Vegaseque.
Hibiscus zest is a must order. Wagyu ribeye is delicious
It was our first time there but it won't be our last. Everything was delicious and the service was great.
The food was fabulous
