    Went for Mother’s Day and I’m sorry to say we were very disappointed. Had the lobster roll (a special of the day) which was barely filled with lobster (for the cost) had shell in it and the lobster had very little flavor- maybe it was previously frozen? It’s such a lovely space it really is a shame. We spent $200 dollars and it was really mediocre at best.

    Nouveau Monde has the feel of a Paris restaurant. Dark, and romantic with soft lighting. The service is top notch. Accommodating yet not hovering over you. They are there to clear and serve smoothly. The food! We had Scallops and the Salmon. Both superb! The appetizers were the Thai Steak Skewers and the Potatoes. Again fabulous! Thank you for a memorable evening to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary!

    Went here to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The wine steward was somewhat pretentious, and the wine list was quite overwhelming, which is OK, but when I asked for a listing of their whiskeys and bourbons. There was no listing and I got the response, “Oh, we have lots, what do you like?” Not a good sign. So I went to the bar to see what they had, and he followed me over which I thought was a little bit creepy. The meal itself was pretty good, the cara cara orange & feta salad was outstanding, although my partner’s potatoes tasted a bit funky, dare I say moldy (no, we didn’t send them back). I will say the service by the young man who brought our food to table was excellent and attentive. Overall our experience was okay, but we certainly were not wowed. Given the excellent number of restaurants we have in this area, I don’t think we will return.

    Had a lovely Sunday evening at Nouveau Monde. Every aspect of our experience was excellent: food and wine, service, ambiance, etc. It's the first time in a long time that a restaurant has checked every box for us. Will definitely be returning.
