Excellent choice for dinner with business friends on a lovely summer night. Menu was very good, service was outstanding and food was very good. Will definitely go back and highly recommend to others.

We tried this restaurant based on the recommendation of the front desk staff at the Hampton. We found our three dinner choices to all be very delicious, and our server Lauren was attentive and courteous. Best of luck to the owner as he continues to expand his menu.

We wanted a Special restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Never heard of Novella. It's been open only six months. Their website looked interesting and we do like to try new things. We also are a bit leary of restaurants since we do our own cooking at home. We say this with no reservations, Novella is at the top of places in this area, even beyond New Paltz. The atmosphere is cozy elegance. The service excellent. From Lauren our waitress to Johnathan the manager, who, by the way comes over more than once to make sure you are happy. After our meal he showed us the baanquet hall. Of course there is the chef, who is Amazing. If I remember correctly his name is James. The food was amazingly good. Prepared and presented like a five star restaurant in Manhattan. The portions are not stingy and the pricing is nice to your wallet, considering what you get. We were extremely impressed. We can see where we would be back with guests. We wish them all best.

My husband and I have been in town on business for the last two days. We have been staying at the new Hampton Inn next door. Cody, at the desk, said we should try Novellas. Boy, was he right. They have good beers on tap, which is very important to us, since we usually seek out a local brewery. But, more importantly, the staff, especially the manager, Jonathan, and the food are outstanding. The first night we had beer and an appetizer platter of hummus, pita, carrots, and celery. The hummus was fresh and extremely tasty. Of course, we also had the complimentary fresh baked bread with an olive oil-garlic dip with fresh olives. It was obvious to us that the chef was talented. We just returned from our second night. This time, we opted for the steak fritte. The steak was done to perfection with a red wine reduction and carmelized onions. Again, both my husband and I were extremely impressed. The price was extremely fair for the quality of the food. We decided to try the fresh fruit cobbler with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Again, it was right on point. The cobbler on this night was a fresh berry cobbler. Amazing! Sweet, yet perfectly tart.

We are in town for one more night and will be headed back tomorrow night to try something else.
