Everyone was very and efficient. Our server was accommodating while not bothering us too much. I just thought overall it was very pricey. I was most disappointed with the mimosas - they were $12 and there is no way that the amount of the beverage we received was worth that much.

The staff was so gracious, the music was fantastic, and the "al fresco" dining experience was nice. The chicken special was delicious, the other items we picked were only fine--overall very good.

Even during the "pandemic" they managed to keep things safe. Nice touch with the music. Wish I could hear him better, as we sat inside not out. But, food was good. Staff friendly.

Hey Nonny
Responded on August 26, 2020

Thanks, Judi! Our staff works incredibly hard to make sure we give people a safe - and fun -- experience. In this pandemic era, we're putting our musicians outside, because that's where most diners are. We shoot some sound to the inside, but we try to be careful of the volume. We'll keep working on it!

We went to eat outside and enjoy some live music. Drinks were good; selection of beer was good. Food was okay. Grilled calamari is one of my favorite things but theirs really needed some salt and pepper, maybe some char. Burger was fine, wings were fine. Go if you want decent food and great vibes.

The food was amazing, it was a very eclectic experience to the palate. Guacamole with burrata, grilled calamari with pepperoncini, salmon with polenta, filet mignon with elote - everything was amazing! The drinks were also great - the bar tender created a coconutty chocolatey dessert martini for us that was amazing. Our server Jimmy was the best - he was attentive and laughed with our group all the way. The live music outside added to a very enjoyable experience. We can't wait to go back and try other dishes.

I felt valued as a customer from the reservations I made with Madelyn to our host and waiter that evening. When we arrived, I was happy to see how our seating preference was remembered. Our server was friendly, patient and attentive. Everyone liked their food. The drink prices were a bit pricey but other than that, everything else was fine. Will definitely return!

We really enjoyed ourselves. It was so nice to sit outside and enjoy some live music. My husband ordered the Nonny burger. He did not like it, but I enjoyed it for leftovers. I had the chicken sandwich which was great. Unfortunately the service was very slow. I know they were busy, however we had to ask the manager for more water and our 2nd round of drinks took so long we had to cancel them before we ever got them.

first time dining at Hey Nonny and really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We sat just inside, so had the coolness of the interior room, but sitting at the window, were able to hear and be part of the outside as well. The Avocado jar was delicious, everyone enjoyed their entrees, and we'll be back again soon to see what the chef has found locally to make.
