“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 food and service were okay. Everything was tasty, but not necessarily anything that I would be dying to have again. Dessert was amazing. Waiter was good but again not outstanding. Overall good experience and would eat there again, but it wouldn't be my first pick.

We love the food and service at Nona Blue. Our only hesitation with going now is that they are not spacing people out and limiting capacity. We made reservations for outside and they were going to seat us right in the middle of everyone. They were operating at full capacity and it looked like any other Friday night. If that doesn’t bother you then you won’t be disappointed with your dinner. If you are trying to avoid crowded areas like my fiancé and I then I would steer clear for now. We ended up leaving the restaurant and ordering our food from there to go. I recommend the prime rib and my fiancé loves their white chocolate cheesecake.

Our server Travis was on point. Solid suggestions and right on the refills and course timing. Firecracker shrimp and both soups were outstanding.

Always excellent for lunch! I had the BBQ chicken flatbread and my wife had the Baja fish tacos. Both were delicious! Our waitress was very attentive, ensuring that our ice teas were always full. We love the tavern atmosphere and will return soon.

Very nice restaurant. Relaxing atmosphere. Quiet and soothing music that wasn’t too loud. The food was excellent. There should be a salad and rolls, bread or bread sticks that go along with the entrees. That would add better value to the pricing.
All in all a very nice experience. We will definitely be return customers.

My girlfriend and I eat at the Nona Blue every Saturday night. We have date night. This past weekend was a special night. It was my girlfriend’s birthday. The service and food is always outstanding. The waiters and waitresses are always very friendly and always smiling. There are two people that we would like to name in particular. One is your Host and his name is Leo. No matter where we are seated he takes the time to come over and speak to us. He is very friendly and courteous. He would make an outstanding waiter. Another was our waiter and his name is Marchello. He takes his job very serious. He takes the time to go over the menu and makes recommendations on what you may like. He made a special occasion very nice for myself and especially my girlfriend.

Another great night a NB. Sat outside and had a seat by the railing. We did not feel an issue concerning how busy the place was because of that seat, but it may be concerning to some about a COVID threat seeing how many people were at the bar and seated inside. But the food was great and was nice to be out.

Our server was very friendly and personable. However, was over charged for sea bass and tables were too close together during this pandemic. Shoulder to shoulder with the couple beside us.
