    Love the outdoor seating at Novy. The set up makes it a cozy experience with the heaters, and the way they have set up the tables and backdrop makes you feel like you are in something, not just out on the sidewalk. This is our favorite spot in Noe Valley. The food is consistently good, and the staff are always friendly and attentive.

    Calamari salad is great at times, but can be iffy, ie: not cooked properly. Service is excellent. Wine expensive.

    Prior to the pandemic, we use to eat at NOVY once a week. We recently started getting back into that habit - Great outdoor seating options and the menu is still fabulous - the perfect place to grab a great dinner & wine just a mile from our house. We are vegetarians and they have lots of options for us, their wine is served in a carafe (a better environmental option) and is great and they some killer desserts. Our waiter last night - JP - has served use several times and he is great - great sense of humor and wonderful timing of the courses. The rest of the staff are also top notch. Thanks NOVY!

    Our server, Sarah, was excellent. The food was overly salty for our taste. And we were surprised to find a very messy restroom, even though the person exiting the room before us was wearing a Novy apron.

    Creative Greek food, with some excellent appetizers, try the feta polenta! The pasta dishes were very good as was the calamari wrap and burger, and the Greek fries - Yum!

    Overall a very nice neighborhood restaurant. There are only two Greek wines available, however, and with so much exciting wine coming out of Greece right now we were hoping for a few more options. Would still return for that delicious lamb burger and zucchini fritters!

    This is everything I hope for in a neighborhood restaurant. Tasty food, very good service, reasonable prices. Not haute cuisine, not crazily innovative, not trendy, but very good (I only give 5 stars for food when there's something unusual and rarefied going on; my 4-star review shouldn't be interpreted as negative).

    Excellent food. Excellent service. My daughter moved to Noe Valley, and the family helped her move. After getting her belongings in her new place, we went to Novy for dinner. We had outstanding food and we ate outdoors. The halloumi, Brussels, and octopus appetizers were all excellent. Gyro was one of the best I’ve ever had. At the end of our meal, they gave us a huge serving of a warm and delicious bread pudding with ice cream for the six of us to share as a “welcome to the neighborhood” gift. So thoughtful. I will definitely be back when I visit my daughter in SF.

    The food at NOVY is delicious! All the appetizers are amazing--especially the feta and olives, the spannikopita, and the polenta. The entrees are also delicious. The service is outstanding. We started coming here for the outdoor seating during the pandemic, and have continued having NOVY as the go-to place to gather with various social groups. LOVE THIS PLACE!

    Another diner had a very loud barking dog a couple tables away that very much detracted from the dining experience, which would otherwise have been lovely. It would have been nice for the manager to tell the dog owner that she needed to take her dog elsewhere.

    We were celebrating a birthday and Sarah (sp?), our server, was exceptionally gracious! The hostess was also very welcoming. The food was very good, large portions, though not inexpensive. We sat in the parklet which was comfortable with the heaters. I would go back for sure for a special occasion.
