The french toast and waffles are amazing at Boa Nova. Ambiance and decor are stunning. Outside dining is great, it's fun to eat outside on summer Sundays during Farmer's Market. They changed their pricing last year, Oakland living wages, and we found the price increase...More

The wait person was professional and efficient. She properly decanted the bottle of wine that we brought. We ordered a steak dish and a couple of vegetarian plates. Good quality ingredients and it was well prepared. Worth the money
