“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.

    We dined outside where we had a nice view of the large pond and it was fairly quiet. The inside area tends to get loud. The service was good and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the hamburger, lemon chicken and a Cajun ribeye special. The portions were big enough for us to take leftovers home. We did enjoy the smoked salmon dip as an appetizer. My only feedback would be they could add a few more crackers as there was way more dip than crackers.

    A personal pet peeve is when the front waiter doesn’t input the orders by seat position, so when the back server brings the food they have to “raffle off” the food ie “who ordered the xxx entree”. Sometimes the restaurant doesn’t implement a seat position order implementation system - which if so at this price point - shame on them. Raffling the food at a low ticket restaurant is appropriate, but shouldn’t be here. I also don’t like the back server system because you end up with too many people at the table - not building rapport with anyone. Also, one of the reasons I eat in a restaurant is because I don’t want to scrape plates. So the server should finish the job and put the uneaten food that people still want in a takeout container. When I walk in the door, I start with the assumption I am going to tip 20%. If the server doesn’t ask if I would like them to box leftovers, and I have to do it, I reduce the tip to 15%.

    Great food, enthusiastic water, timely service. Hungry adult triplet sons and the servings were plentiful so all were more than satisfied. We’ve been here before on vacations to Ponte Vedra and it was loud. But we hit it perfectly at 6:15 on a Monday. We had a great time and glad we chose Nona Blue.

    Seated at a high top on the patio Berlin the water - picturesque with the fountain and bird watching. The 3 of us had drinks and shared the spinach artichoke dip. Allen, the bartender and our waiter did a fabulous job😍. Our entrees were yummy (grouper special, blackened shrimp tacos, and pasta with chicken. Thanks for another great memory!

    Our server Wyatt was attentive to our requests. The food was very good and served in a timely manner. We were not rushed and our appetizers were served promptly. My husband ordered the French onion soup and said it was delicious; OK not too salty and served at the appropriate temperature. Our dinner guests loved their food choices too. We definitely will be back!

    We have been to Nona Blue several times, but this was the first time on a Friday night. The place was jammed, and it made it difficult to hear each other at a table for 4. It is a popular place, and I am not sure that there is anything to be done about the noise level. The service was great and the food wonderful. We will be back again and would recommend the restaurant to our friends with the cavate about the sound level. The location in Ponte Vedra makes it an ideal place to meet friends from Jacksonville.

    I have been going to Nona Blue for years. Always loved it. This occasion was terrible. Service was slow yet restaurant was quiet. Ordered fish & chips. Arrived cold. Tiny portion of fish. I mean the size of a $1 bill and almost that thin! Had zero seasoning. Tasted bland. French fries were under cooked. Ketchup came in a “thimble”. My wife had Mahi sandwich. Tiny portion of fish as well. Cooked ok but not hot just warm. We were shocked at how sub par it was.

    I don’t normally leave a review but I’m getting tired of restaurants that are raising prices AND shrinking the portions. You can do one or the other, but not both. People are noticing. The restaurant was nice but the food wasn’t worth the price. The plates were filled with mashed potatoes to disguise the lack of protein. $52 for 2 tiny pieces of Chilean sea bass and a heaping spread of mashed was disappointing. The same situation was with the pork chop dish, as well.
