    The restaurant service is excellent. We enjoyed the greek meatballs and chicken wrap. I highly recommend this restaurant. Prices seem high for lunch, but it seems restaurant prices are going up everywhere.

    Another diner had a very loud barking dog a couple tables away that very much detracted from the dining experience, which would otherwise have been lovely. It would have been nice for the manager to tell the dog owner that she needed to take her dog elsewhere.

    Novy is a reliably enjoyable neighborhood restaurant. Service is attentive and friendly, the food is consistently good, the wine list offers many options, and its prices are fair and reasonable.

    We were celebrating a birthday and Sarah (sp?), our server, was exceptionally gracious! The hostess was also very welcoming. The food was very good, large portions, though not inexpensive. We sat in the parklet which was comfortable with the heaters. I would go back for sure for a special occasion.

    Novy is a little neighborhood gem—but enjoyed by everyone from all over the city! The outdoor seating is very protected and comfortable—and usually has nice weather. Love the variety of the menu—always delicious! Love meeting friends there for lunch or dinner. A fun, casual place with fresh, healthy and tasty food.

    We arrived 10 minutes late to our reservation. We didn’t know they closed at 8.30pm. We only had 20 minutes to spare. They still seated us and got our orders in fast. We stayed well past closing and the service was impeccable. Our server was fun and took great care of us!

    We went to celebrate my friend’s birthday. We had a great time and the food was delicious. Our server Jin (not sure if that’s his name - he was serving Table S, outside on April 12 at 11:30 am) was excellent. He checked on us frequently, gave us very good service and was efficient.

    Good food and great neighborhood place. The server was very nice, just had all the outdoor tables to take care of. Obviously, they are having trouble finding help. Despite that it was a very pleasant experience, especially since the server was so nice.

    Excellent service-very attentive staff; very good salads but a little pricey (they even charged us extra for pita bread). I had reserved a booth inside but forgot to set it aside for us, so we sat outside in park let-too noisy.

    The appetizer / small plates were fantastic. The entrees were good. The only option of veggies pasta for vegetarians was not that good. Decent wine options and very limited low ABV cocktails. Overall I would recommend the place.
