Pretty place but food was surprisingly not all that
I have driven by and the seen the bold and beautiful ""Nava"" logo many times on Paces Ferry Road. This restaurant looked so appealing -especially after having seen it on the BHL website and after reading their menu. My husband and I wanted to celebrate my birthday, so we'd thought we try Nava. Their fixed price menu offerings actually sounded quite appealing. When we arrived on a Sunday evening, we were a little surprised to see it so empty. It was pretty near peak evening hours and BHL was having their special $29 three course menu, so we expected more folks to show up. The interior is, in my opinion, quite lovely. We ordered two slightly pricy but tasty cocktails and gave the waiter our order. Some rolls and cornbread sticks that were kind of bluish in color were brought out (from the cornmeal, I guess). They were moist enough but only okay tasting , and I have to admit that I've had better bread and cornbread elsewhere (for starters my mother could make much more delicious cornbread). I ordered a dish consisting of ""organic"" chicken breast and some kind of spicy mac and cheese. It also came with a salad. My husband had the salmon and he opted for the appetizer trio instead of the salad. I must say that I wasn't overly impressed with anything except for the dessert which was a banana enchilada. My husband had the berry tart which he didn't care for at all and we ending up taking that home and not eating any of it. While my chicken breast was juicy and tender, I just did not care for the way it or my mac and cheese were seasoned, and I'm usually a very open-minded individual. I really didn't like the salad at all or my husband's appetizers for that matter. My husband did enjoy his salmon pretty well but he wasn't overly impressed by it. The service that we get at BHL locations is usually pretty snotty at times, but because we were apparently his only table on this night, our server was rather attentive.
