“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.

Service was excellent. Friendly and efficient. The tacos were really good, as were the mussels. Only negative is the noise level.

Food is always good but we sit outside on the patio. It’s very noisy inside when it’s busy.

Nothing but great things to say about Nona. Great food...my date had the G-Mac and Cheese and I had the French Qtr Prime Pasta Bowl. We ordered an app which was probably a mistake as the portions size are larger and I ended up taking half of the entrée home. Service was great, very attentive. Moderately priced, good atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday night and it was fairly crowded so I recommend making reservation unless you intend on sitting at the bar which is an option as the bar is huge. Will definitely go back when I'm in the area.

Food was pretty good;waiter was friendly, but inserted himself in our conversation without an invitation. He was a good guy, but too much. Loved the seating by the lake. Would come back if I could be assured of a quiet dinner.

My ribeye steak was mediocre at best. Not worth the $32 I paid for it. My potatoes had to be returned. They were cold. We enjoyed the appetizer, but overall, not what we expected. We were celebrating our anniversary and we were disappointed.

The milk served with the coffee is cold, directly from the refrigerator. So it unpleasantly cools down your hot coffee.
Thankfully, our server was resourceful. She steamed the milk. And using this heated milk was much better than cold coffee.

The food and service is very good but for a group (we were 9) it’s too noisy to hear table conversation. We won’t pick Nona Blue again for our group for that reason. A booth with 4 or less people would be fine.

Our new favorite place! Wonderful food quality and variety. Everything was top-notch - particularly our service and interaction with Elijah. He made us feel as if we were being hosted by friends. We look forward to many more visits.

This place has such a great atmosphere, classy and semi-casual at the same time. The food was excellent. I had the grilled cheese BLT which was bacon, lobster, tomato & cheese and it was superb!! I subbed the fries for a Greek salad which was no problem at all and the salad was great too! The server was very familiar with the menu and specials and very attentive! The food came out timely. Excellent!

While the menu isn't overly trendy, the food is always well prepared. Service outside is fairly quiet, and affords the kids room to cartwheel or throw a football when adult conversation becomes tedious. Servers are casual but professional and always friendly. We are fans.

Nona is our “go to” place in Ponte Vedra Beach. The service is amazing with Lenny and Tra always providing great service. The support of an incredible management team of Kira, Sam, Robby, and Caz. Throw in great food and drinks and you can’t go wrong. Nona is a fantastic place with fantastic people

I was at sawgrass the whole week on business. I ended up eating here 3 of 5 nights just to try many of the items on the menu. Not only was everything great, the prices were not high. Highly recommend

We were celebrating my daughters birthday which I mentioned. But waitress didn’t know.
The large table next to us was absolutely out of control with kids running around acreaming the whole time we were there.
Very disappointing. Couldn’t hear our party speak at all.

I normally can count on having a very nice meal at Nonna Blue. This time the salmon was too dry and the accompanying quinoa salad was very cold (I believe it should be served at room temperature). So disappointed this time with the food. We love to sit outside where the atmosphere is always great. We often sit at the bar and we get excellent service from the bartenders. We would go back again!

Mussels are very good and portion size is good value for price. The entrée prices & meal salads are a bit on the high side. the roast beef in the roast beef sandwich was a bit on the chewy side. Quinoa salad is very good. Great atmosphere on outside patio.

Very bad experience. Made reservation but no tables available, told to wait for few minutes then we were given a pager. Manager got involved. Very loud and noisy, a drunk bunch of guys tried to hit on my wife.

Service was a little slow and they kept coming back to clean up the table before we were ready. Felt a little rushed. Noise level was VERY high when we arrived - I had to repeat myself to the others in my party at our booth.

Food was excellent. Service was caring but very disorganized. We had 7 different employees tend to us and the head server could not remember our request or needs. Little things like only 1 set of chop sticks for an appetizer, only asking one of us if we needed another drink, after receiving a drink-asking if we wanted a drink and then noticing we had a new drink that was just delivered. Head server was not knowledgeable about the specials.
