The dining experience after Covid-19 was great. We felt safe and the Restaurant was taking measures to provide a clean environment for the guests.
The food, as usual, was good and a good value.

Celebrating a birthday and as always we were not disappointed. The food was wonderful. Service was great. They have live music on the weekend and the singer sang happy birthday to our birthday boy. It was great.
They are practicing social distancing with the tables and it was good to see all staff was wearing gloves and masks. One thing that surprised me was our temperature was not checked before being seated. Overall a wonderful evening.

They couldn’t have taken more precautions. You’re required to wear a mask until you are seated and if you’re going to the restroom you must wear one as well. All tables are 6 feet apart and the waiters all had gloves and masks. We definitely enjoyed our first night out since this epidemic started.

El Novillo is a family owned Nicaraguan steakhouse. We ordered their churrasco, and it was more than enough for one. I would probably had been satisfied with the smaller portion (baby churrasco 8oz). It was accompanied with the traditional red beans and rice, fried green plantain strips, and a trio of sauces. We finished our meal "Tres Leches". There was live music, which could be heard throughout the restaurant. The servers were attentive and the food was delicious. By the time we left at 8:00 it was getting very busy.

They have excellent center cut steaks and even wine at a very fair price. This place has been around since 1988 and I can see why.

Really nice and affordable place for a family visit, or even with friends. They can even accommodate huge groups also...dinner for a group of 16 people? Yup they were able to do it.

I’ve been to this restaurant before but never had such poor experience as I did on Christmas Day. I didn’t want to complain since it was Christmas but our service was terrible and my sons steak couldn’t of been any harder. I will not be going back.

As always food was great! We found the service a little rushed as if wanting to move people in and out too quickly. First time we’ve encountered that here. Otherwise great as expected.
