I ordered two different happy hour beverages, both tasted like nothing but straight alcohol. My husband and my dinner was not good at all. We couldn’t even say anything to our waitress because she didn’t come over to check on us at all until she brought us the bill. Very poor service. Very mediocre food.

Brought the wrong meal to one in our party and told him he ordered differently. He wanted red sauce and got white cheese sauce.
Bartender grabbed us as we we leaving and tried to charge us a second time for drinks we had 3 hours earlier.

My party of four had a great dining experience. My only gripe was that the wine bottle was expensive.

The skewers happens do be a “signature” dish for them... it was obvious that they were prepped days before and since we ordered without the bbq sauce they were old and bland. On the other hand the sushi was great as were the meatballs and ricotta

Good food - sometimes too many ingredients in a dish - more than necessary. But original and tasty. Larger dining area than I thought there would be. I even noticed a huge banquet room being utilized for an event on the way out. We went at an early dinner time so it wasn't too crowded yet so it wasn't noisy. Our server was extremely pleasant. I definitely want to go back.

The nine of us rarely go out as a group. We are loud, picky about our food, and have varied preferences and expectations. The menu at Terra Nova satisfies every taste, the atmosphere is upscale but comfortable, and the service is a great complement to the setting and the menu. Great drinks, great dessert, and a great time! We’ll come back!

The food took forever some of the entrees were just barely warm and one dish was sent back for no flavor . The server was the one bright spot was on his game despite poor kitchen output

We ordered drinks and my wife's drink came out different than what she ordered, no big deal the waiter returned it and got the White Sangria she asked for, that was horrible, tasted like seltzer water with fruit so he took that back and brought her a Kettle One and Cranberry which came out dark red and tasted like nothing but Cranberry; she drank water for the rest of her meal.

The food was mediocre at best, my $21 Seafood Fazzoletti had very little seafood (1 shrimp) and tasted just okay, my wife's $35 Filet mignon was tough and tasted more like a sirloin, we took the rest home for the dog.

Our server was pretty good and the atmosphere is nice but we will never be back there again.

Most of restaurant was empty sat us in very back in a booth that was small for four people.
Also needs a little update could be cleaned better. Floors are sticky.

It was nice to see some new menu items after years of the same. I had the swordfish, which was done just right. My husband tried the new gnocchi preparation, and equally enjoyed his meal. It was definitely worth giving this place another try, and we will be back.

I feel as thou the price they charged for their specials was extremely high . The prices were compared to fine dinning in Center City Pa. I don’t feel like the quality or taste of the food was worth that. Especially for a local restaurant . I would advise you to ask the cost of the specials before ordering .

Terra Nova is hit or miss, the food is always excellent, the front staff seems to be miserable about hosting, we’ve been there many times and never receive a warm welcome, the food service is okay. Great food though!

I've been here several times before. This time was disappointing. Everything was fair at best. Maybe just an off night. They stuck us in the back. Kids were running in and out the entire time. Waitress barely checked on us. Food was nothing special. Just an ok night from a place that was usually exceptional
