I was disappointed in the club rolls. The bread you used to have paired perfectly with many dishes.

Terra Nova is always a safe choice. The food is nice and the service are generally pleasant and courteous. The atmosphere is pleasant. However, during the past visit brightening dimmed the atmosphere. But, has a whole a great choice again! 😊

I met an old friend for lunch at Terra Nova last Saturday. They had tables in front, under the shade of their wide eaves. It was a hot day, but they‘ve installed lots of overhead fans that create a nice breeze and keep it pleasant. The food and service were as good as ever, which is a real achievement considering what restaurants have endured this year. I’ve tried two other old favorites that have reopened for table service. Both fell short of their old standards despite their efforts to make a good showing.

Had to get out of the house after 4 months of COVID Quarantine. The restaurant handled everything perfectly - outside seating, properly spaced, wait staff had gloves and masks, fans keeping the air moving, music that made you think you were in the tropics, and delicious food. Definitely a repeat

Amazing experience. I knew Terra Nova would be able to make the absolute best out of the Covid situation. Beautiful atmosphere, nice breezy fans throughout, cover from the elements, and of course amazing food.

Terra Nova is always an excellent choice for dining out. The food is always very good. The service is always excellent. The atmosphere is excellent. Now that we are dining outside only they have made very nice accommodations to meet the Covid criteria.

We are outside (as per Governor Murphy’s guidelines-good Comrade) and our meal, drinks and service were FABULOUS! They were crowded too! Thank you Terra Nova for adapting to this world of rules & coronavirus.

Food was tasty and fresh however service wasn’t the best as the server just closed us out and brought the check without even offering to see a dessert menu. Meanwhile, I heard her offer dessert to a nearby table!

Excellent service. Meatball was great. Skewers were mostly veggies, very little meat, too much bbq sauce, like it was hiding something. Caprese salad not as described, very small for price, drinks did not taste.good.at all.

Terra Nova were not busy at 3:00p on Sunday afternoon. We had to wait for everything ... drinks ... appetizers ... soups ... then the main meal. It was disappointing because I've been there when the service has been considerably better and when the restaurant was busy. I in particular was disappointed because I am a regular customer. I made reservations over a month ago. The Bishop of the Diocese of Camden was with us and I called ahead of time to let Terra Nova he was a part of my party.

So to conclude, restaurant was not crowded and service was very slow. If this was my first visit, based upon our experience, I would not return.
