Nova may not look it from the outside, as it presents iself as a slighlty divey, homey, comfortable after-work (and anytime before or in between) bar, but the food is really good-...

Tapas, comfort-food style 5/28/2006

This cozy little bar/cafe on 2nd street between Bryant and Brannan, offers a decent drink selection (including an interesting assortment of yummy, flavor-infused vodkas.) The menu is best described as American-style tapas with a focus on comfort food, featuring dishes like macaroni and cheese, delectible little pizzas that are perfect for two, and a suprisingly good lobster quesadilla. more

nova bar & restaurant 3/20/2006

went there for lunch. i thought it would have more of a restaurant feel but it feels more like a pub with tables. the burgers and fries were good and the price is decent. the decor is dark like a typical bar with a long bar and tables lined up across the bar. this would be a great place before or after the game since it's so close. more

Great post-game bar 8/23/2005

We took a group of over twenty people to Nova after a noon Giants game. We had reserved three tables, but easily sat everyone after grabbing a few extra chairs. The wait-service was a little slow, but only relatively to how quickly it was possible to get drinks directly from the bar. The infused vodkas were very interesting. The Honey Lavender was clearly the best of the varieties, although the Blackberry and Watermelon are worth trying. The Peach was okay, but not great; I'd recommend asking to taste the chocolate and espresso before ordering anything involving those drinks, they seem to be quite an acquired taste. more
