“This is food the way we like to eat,” says Joe Davi, Founding Partner at Nona Blue.
Davi and Bill Bona, also Founding Partner at Nona Blue, saw American dining trending toward smaller portions with different tastes; sharing at tables had always been an option, now it was being encouraged. As the vision for Nona Blue began to come into focus, Bona and Davi began crafting their “Shareables” menu, featuring items that can be passed among an entire table or serve as a meal for a single guest.

    Went here for lunch to celebrate my son’s graduation from UCF. Was dark inside but very nice. We had a great lunch. The food was very good and the portions were huge. Server was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely eat here again when in town.

    Always fantastic food and service! Taylor was our server and did a wonderful job checking on us and keeping our glasses full and quickly made emptied plates disappear! Tonya is always professional and gracious and makes us feel “at home”!

    Had not visited here since before the pandemic because it had become to crowded and difficult to get a table as a walk in or as a reservation. It was pleasantly busy but not overcrowded today. Jordan was our server and she was excellent. Food was outstanding. The Nona Blue Burger is my go-to and never disappoints—best blue cheese I’ve ever had. Definitely put this restaurant on your must try list.

    Nona Blue is always a must go when I'm in town. However on this particular visit we had the pleasure of being taken care of by Nicole. Nicole is an outstanding individual and its people like her that take the dining experience to another level. She was extremely attentive to detail. When we sat down, she asked if anyone had any allergies, which one of my sons did. Midway thru our sit down we ordered an item and she came back to the table letting us know the possibility of cross contamination and if wanted to chose another item. Additionally, every time she brought a new drink , she changed the napkins underneath the glass...you do not see this anymore in restaurants. Never were we left unattended, and we were there on a busy Saturday. So this review is all about KUDOS to Nicole, keep up the great work. As far as the rest of my experience at Nona Blue that night...Top Shelf!

    Overall loved it. The service is always good and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Both the burger and Lemon Chicken were excellent! Tacos and Margherita pizza good. Desserts are huge and both Carrot Cake and Key Lime pie were fantastic. Lesson learned: too warm and humid for outside dining,

    The meal and service was outstanding. I have a seafood and allergy and the staff was sure to inform our table of entrees that contained any form of fish or seafood mixed in it. We really appreciated them taking the time to update us. As always the food was excellent!

    The old neighborhood standby NEVER disappoints. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and it was relatively quiet. The place can get noisy but we were pleasantly surprised. The food is as good as it gets. Service was FANTASTIC. Our Server, Kayly was AMAZING!!!
