“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.

The salad I ordered lacked seasoning and none is on the table. No bread was offered or included. Seems a bit pricey given that.

Great location menu was very interesting we had brunch my poached eggs were brought had to send them back kind of disappointing that’s a basic thing most people should know. Everything else we ordered was great the smoked salmon dip with Crostini was very yummy but had a lot of onions in it...

Great service and food. We had the flatbread appetizer for starters. I had the filet medallions that were awesome. My wife had the salmon over a salad. The salmon was also cooked over a hickory fire. Stephen, the manager has this place in top notch shape.

Great stop after a round of golf and waiting to go to the airport. Loved the meatloaf and the desserts and drinks were amazing! This will become a staple of our annual golf trip!

Brunch was good, not great. The home fries were really good though. Omelet was okay but I'd try something else next time.

We were disappointed they were out of calamari so we'll have to try another day for lunch.

Recently visited in a Saturday night. So happy I had made reservations in advance. We were promptly seated and met with smiles. The food was delicious and Brandon our server was awesome. They were very accommodating to substitution to the dishes as they are a scratch kitchen. I would highly recommend Nona Blue. The place was packed, but they were adequately staffed and provided an enjoyable experience with a wide variety of menu choices. I’ll be back.

Love the tacos and the flatbreads. Service is always good, especially at lunch. Sometimes in the evening it takes a while to get drink refills.

Atmosphere is good and service is usually friendly.

The situations are the front desk personnel. They called me 2 time yo change our sittings to outside then to high tables to give our table to another group We are seniors and one is handycap but and at the end they canceled my friends reunion by mistake. When I get there no problem at all. We like that place anyway.

We visited Nona Blue in Jacksonville and had a nice experience. This last visit was all around a terrible evening. It took an hour for the waiter to take our order, which he took after I went to find him. The terrible service included; uncooked food, no visits back to the table to check if we needed water refills, etc., a chilly evening which needed heaters that went out, 3 bread plates for a party of 5, mayonnaise instead of sour cream for tacos...never corrected. Will not go back again.

This is my second time here and brought my daughter's mother and we had a great time, wonderful waitress and the food was amazing. For a Thursday night it was quite busy and therefore somewhat noisy but overall a great time. Prices are on the higher side but expected in the Lake Nona area.

Nona blue is always a great place for good solid American food. The prime rib is a real buy. Mine was a full 1inch slab with lots of flavor and with a stuffed baked potato, I was stuffed too.

Nona Blue is one of the best restaurants in the Lake Nona FL area. This is our go to place for work lunches, no matter who is visiting. The menu offers a great selection so no one walks away not having satisfied their craving. Our office has several people with food allergies and Nona Blue is always accommodating. The staff are always helpful and friendly. So check out Nona Blue for your next work lunch or just your own lunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed.

Nona Blue Modern Tavern was a great find near the airport. We were picking up family and needed a place to have dinner close by. The food was wonderful. We had the PEI mussels for an appetizer. This could've been my meal, they give you plenty of mussels and the broth was tasty but simple. My husband had shrimp tacos and I had the lobster BLT sandwich. Both were fantastic. Our waitress was attentive but not hovering. The gentleman who brought our drinks recommended a different IPA beer to try and it was wonderful. The only not positive thing I have to say is that they had called to confirm the reservation earlier and asked my table preference, which I asked for outside seating. When we got there they started to seat us inside. They were able to accommodate the change so no big deal there. I would definitely eat there again.

Good location, great and friendly service, good food, ambience OK, little louder than would be expected. Bar area should be more isolated maybe back up close to kitchen relocating table to where bar is presently located. Parking is sometime a challenge unless you know back road locations within walking distance.

Delicious food, friendly staff, Chris G was attentive and knowledgeable. Ridiculous valie, we were surprised at how inexpensive our meal was for what we got: Drinks, apps, entrées. This is a destination restaurant every time we visit central Florida. Try the mission street tacos.

Beautiful dining room. Excellent and friendly service. Menu and food were outstanding. We have told everyone that it was a terrific dining experience. Wish we lived closer to the restaurant so that we could be there frequently. We look forward to spending our son's wedding anniversary as well as our own anniversary there. It is a wonderful experience to take out of town guests there as well.
