Hire more waiters/waitresses. We waited a while for food. Other than that everything was great.

It was a bit of a wait (5 mins easy with no seating area) for the hostess and that had already left a bad taste in our mouths from the beginning, but since we were from New Jersey with no other restaurants available for a Saturday night we waited. Once we got our waitress, she was amazing making up for all the nonsense previously. She was very efficient and very pleasant. Then the food came out and mostly everything was unseasoned to the point u needed condiments for everything and that still wouldn’t help. We ordered three different flavor wings, steak, shrimp cocktail, fried Mac n cheese and even the spinach crab dip and unfortunately the chef should not be at a casino restaurant cooking like he did Saturday night for us! That ultimately ruined everything about the experience so yes it’s visually nice n even decent music but when you go to eat you should want to eat the food and we waisted everything and felt bad that we took doggy bags and threw the food right in the garbage. I pray for their sakes that it was done purposely.

The staff was very nice. We all felt there was enough room to spread out and feel comfortable. The bar area was great because we could hear the music but wasn't crazy loud. Returned a few times during the evening and the drinks and food were not too high in price.

We attended brunch. The DJ was on fire, we had so much fun. Bloody Marys were the perfect spiciness for us

What can I say about the brunch @ Novelle? We are still talking about it. Can’t wait to do it again!!! Everything was wonderful. From the peach mimosas, to the shrimp cocktail, to the goat cheese-filled arancini, to the glazed donuts. Cannot wait to go back again. Special thanks to Chad!!!

Now that Mohegan is back in the semi swing of things we wanted d to try Novelle. We had an early dinner elsewhere so we figured we'd get apps and drinks and listen to the live band. We were seated at a high top and requested a table seeing two were open. Our request was denied. Drinks came that were terrible and waitress saw we didnt drink them when the apps came so we ordered 2 different drinks. Apps were ok but after an hour went by I asked the gentlemen who seated us why we couldnt get the table. He said two people cancelled and the other two tables were taken. I told him not true one was taken but the people in their pajamas just sat down. He was argumentative but I wouldn't let it go and eventually apologized but didnt offer to seat me at the booth. We were all dressed up and excited to just hangout and enjoy the music. I just got more angry as time went on after seeing the tables still open at 930 so we left. The place is beautiful inside but its a shame they dont have some sort of dress code. I guess it is what it is.

One of the best brunches I’ve had in a long time. Food was delicious and perfect portions. Loved the value of the Build Your Own Mimosa option and the DJ was awesome. The exact vibe I wanted on a Sunday afternoon. My fiancé and I will definitely be back again.

Very slow service, but nice environment and food was pretty good. The managers and staff seemed clueless and weren’t much help to a server who was clearly overwhelmed with customers.

This was my first dining experience at Novelle and my first dining experience out during the pandemic. I did not know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised at the safety measures and protocols in place as well as the strict adherence to both. The food was delicious. I wanted to give Chef Craig Schultz a 'shout out' for running out to Bow and to the host who went to Tuscany for our Angry Orchard. The staff that worked on Sunday, November 8th at 2pm went above and beyond to ensure our dining experience exceeded expectations. Thank you!

Went on a whim and went on Valentine’s Day and was unbelievably surprised that it wasn’t over crowded and you had plenty of space between you and another couple or group. Food was AMAZING i had the salmon (wish it came with two pieces it was so good ahha) my husband had steak over fries and man the flavor ... amazing! Their specialty martinis (SOOOOO GOOD) Highly recommend. We will be back for sure

Steak frites- steak was tough and frites were soggy. Suppose to come with greens - there were 3 sprigs of green under the soggy fries. Chicken was tasty but hardly any arugula. Definitely a shortage on the greens. Service was outstanding.

Not quite the ambiance I thought it was going to be and we were first seated at a high top by the entrance, even though we'd had reservations and there were only 2 other parties in the restaurant. I was in a long dress so had to ask to be moved to something more comfortable.
With that said, the food was excellent. We had the steak frites and they were amazing! We were there on a Thursday and all of the entrees were half price - whether it was because we were there at 6PM or it was a regular special, I don't know and wasn't aware of it when we booked, but it was definitely a good savings! I would eat there again, but not for a dressy occasion.

We had a reservation from Open Table walked in the front and were immediately pointed to the rear. It’s mostly a bar and we couldn’t find a server to seat us and the place was overflowing with people and finally walked back to the front where there was a podium which we had been pointed by at first and we waited to tell someone we had a reservation. Finally we got seated and we both ordered. It’s a small menu and the restaurant was out of what we both ordered so ended up ordering 10 minutes later after the server returned to tell us they were out. It’s a very loud place, hard to carry on a conversation, and the food is nothing special. It’s really mostly a bar that serves food.

Small portions. Overpriced. Poor quality. Small cramped space. Irritated server. $36 for one crab cake on a plate! I got a small piece of tuna on a plate for $32. It was overcooked!

We made an reservation far in advance, they sat us in the bar area even though the whole dining area was empty. It was very loud in the bar, football game going on, people screaming. We asked if we can please move and were told no because the dining room was reserved. We ordered appetizers,the calamari was raw, the batter was dripping not crunchy. We decided not to have dinner and spend our money elsewhere. Waitress wasn’t apologetic , she basically was like it is what it was, didn’t seem like she cared if we stayed or went. We did ask for the calamari to be removed from our check since it was not at a bar and she had it removed. We will not be returning

My wife and I ate here before seeing a show last night. Overall a good experience. The food was good. The service was a little slow but not bad and the servers were friendly. The drinks are pretty pricey. The thing we both laughed about was the dress code policy. We saw the info on here and the web site about the dress code so we both made sure we both dressed accordingly. While there we saw plenty of people enter in t shirts and some even in shorts. The club looks fun and Im sure it gets busy as the night goes on. Over all a decent experience.

Beautiful space...tasty food. Service was terrible. So disorganized. Waitresses or as they like to say “models” were shuffling around in dresses that probably fit in a snack bag and did not fit any one of them. All were pulling at the dresses to prevent indecent exposure...this ripping the dress and walking around with holes in your “uniform”. The guy who answered the phone for the reservation spoke in a tone as if I were calling about a college party....be professional! It may be a nightclub in one area...but their doing dinner service in the other and they need to treat it as true dinner service. Food came out completely out of order in a random fashion. I do have to say that the 1/2 price menus on Thursday is a crazy deal....and the food was very good, once you get it. All in all....could be a killer Vegas-Style dinnerclub but they need to get their management and service together ASAP!

I made a reservation for my husbands birthday for dinner , which was great we were sat immediately . After that however our experience went south . Our drinks took a while and our food was even worse . We were not accurately told about the food - when placing an order to be shared we were not told that the portion was extremely small (disappointing
for how much it was ) would be impossible for two adults to share as a meal. Our food was brought out so staggered by the time everything arrived we all were eating at different times .
We were not checked in on to see if everything was good or if we needed anything - many of us sat with empty drinks most of the time . It then took a while to get our check , when really we just wanted to leave to enjoy our night .
Ultimately we had a bad experience at Novelle and probably won’t return.
