Interesting restaurant with traditional entrees like sea bass and ny strip steak. They also offer alligator and kangaroo appetizers which were delicious. The kangaroo tasted like steak with a slight hint of liver. The alligator was served in tators style and both were very good....More

Service was good, menu unique, and the view of the Columbus Commons was unbelieveable. We ate there on a beautiful night so they had the large doors open to the green space. The decor is magnificient in the restaurant.

We visited De Novo during Columbus's semi annual restaurant week. We had a 730 reservation. We were indeed promptly seated. Our table was directly across from the kitchen pass-through to the dining area. That is no problem; sometimes things just happen that way. Our waiter...More
