“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.

Celebrated a birthday with some friends. Had a great meal out on the patio, food came quickly, service was great - one small snafu was promptly rectified. Overall, Nona Blue is tough to beat and I have yet to be disappointed!

After my first visit, I'm ready to be a regular. This spot has a nice ambience, several generations in attendance at the same time, and a smooth but not boring vibe. Food was excellent, and service was even better... Will Be Back.

This was our first time! Service and food were fantastic! Gladly found as a table inside after deciding outside was too hot. Everything was great. It was a bit in the loud sound inside.

We arrived earlier than we expected and was seated before our reservation time.
The servers were very busy but really hustling and always attentive and very friendly and took the time to go over the menu items..
Initial review of the menu we were thinking it was a bit pricy but the flavors and the portions made up for it. Not to mention the Kentucky Bourbon Ale. So good.
They call the Firecracker Shrimp appetizer a "Shareable" on the menu, but after the first bite you may want to rethink that. All in all, it was a very good experience.

Our server was great in recognizing we were friends who hadn’t seen each other in a while and he didn’t rush us. The food was great. I tried the BLT Grilled Cheese. It was a delicious variation on a lobster roll grilled cheese.

Drinks, desserts, and service were excellent, appetizers and entrees were only average. I wouldn’t mind going back, but I also wouldn’t seek this place out.

Our experience here for the first time was not very good, the food was not out of this world but it was not bad either. the service was terrible our waitress did not care to give us the service we expected for this type of restaurant. the baked potato soup was good, as was the flat bread margarita. the hamburger was good but the bread was not the best as it broke in my hands. the waitress brought us food and dessert at the same time and was not very attentive as she should be. In summary average food in quality and terrible service.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Nona Blue! Kierra is an EXCELLENT server! She kept on top of our refills without us ever having to ask. Two in our group shared a meal. And she even had the kitchen split the order to two plates so they didn’t have to do it at the table. She made our experience even better. And loved looking at all the tags hanging around the bar. Only thing to make it better would be getting to say hello to Graeme.
