Sitting in the warm and inviting atmosphere of Acova, my family and I were able to sample some of their unique dishes.
The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.
The menu is eclectic with something for everyone – from beef short rib sandwich to pork pozole to pierogies.
All the dishes we sampled had great flavor, with a good balance of sweet and savory. The portions were a bit small for the price but they were still reasonably priced considering the quality.
The burger was particularly good and so was the pork tenderloin sandwich – both served on thin slices of bread that added a delightful texture to each bite.
We also enjoyed their grilled corn dish and PEI mussels which had plenty of flavor layers when combined together.
Our experience at Acova was very pleasant. The staff provided timely service as well as great recommendations for food choices.
