Description: Set against a rich eclectic backdrop, Novo's international flavors are the leading ingredients in an exotic dining experience. Located downtown San Luis Obispo in a historic turn of the century building with spectacular creekside dining. Multi award winning restaurant for food, service and ambiance. Extensive global and local wine and beer selection. Novo easily accommodates large parties either on one of the patios in in their lower level "cellar room". A favorite with both locals and tourists, Novo is a truly a San Luis Obispo experience.

Whenever in SLO we somehow always find our way back to Novo. The food is consistently well done, the menu is interesting, and the location+setting are impossible to beat.

I love this restaurant but be sure to make a reservation on the deck or the wait will be long! Varied menu with something for everyone. I like the New York Strip but be warned, this baby will feed two! Take a sweater in even i ng...they have patio heaters but evenjngs can b e chilly. Very romantic setting with lights and lanterns in trees.

Love the patio and the view of the creek. The food was good, the wait staff was friendly and efficient. Our dog liked sitting and looking at the ducks in the creek. A very pleasant time.

Very pretty setting but food was a notch below average. We live in Los Angeles so get a variety of ethnic food here. Perhaps this restaurant is special for those people that do not get a lot of various ethnic food. Great perk that they accept dogs in the outside dining area. Service was also very friendly.

We sat outdoors because we brought our dog - the waiter gave me instructions for entering from the creek. When he saw my wife sitting there, he went to check the alley he had directed me to...they had closed the gate. He then went around the front to find me. Service over and above!! From there on, the service and food were excellent! What a charming find in a town full of restaurants, Novo excels!
