    Usually I give this restaurant 5 stars all the way. Unfortunately, the meet in my Gyros was dry and some pieces of lamb were slightly burnt. It tasted as if it was rewarmed. Meanwhile, my friend had the calamari salad that was delicious. And our dessent (the custard in the fila-don't remember how to spell the name) was outstanding. Just my main dish was mediocre. Frankly, this was the first time this occurred at Novy.

    We are long-time NOVY diners.....and back after a pandemic pause. We love the menu (lots of veggie options), great wine list, great outdoor seating (with lots of heaters on cold nights) AND a fabulous staff. Our fav waiter is JP and all of the support staff and kitchen crew are the BEST!

    Great neighborhood place. Always enjoy the Mediterranean menu. Service excellent.Tiny bit too noisy for conversation, but then we had requested indoors. Outdoor seating is great, good heaters. So glad they survived Covid lockdown.!

    All the dishes we had were delicious! We had the hummus and pita. We also had the calamari and kale salad. I loved the dates in the salad. For our entree we had the salmon which was delicious! Our dessert I can’t pronounce but it was delicious! The service was spectacular! Highly recommend!

    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.

    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.

    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.
