Nona Blue Modern Tavern - Ponte Vedra Beach
We ate outside and had a good time. But it was noisy.
Restaurant was very busy but we had a reservation and got shown to our table on time. Our server, was obviously very green. He seems very rushed and disorganized. I asked for a class of cab when we ordered dinner, but it took 25+ minutes for the wine to arrive, after reminding him several times. “It should be here shortly” was the answer we got at least twice. I was almost finished with our main course by the time it came. Everyone has to learn, but maybe give the guy some help on those busy nights, or you’ll just create a poor experience for customers.
Good overall dining experience. A bit pricey but food was delicious and service was good. Would like to see lore martini options
Service and food outstanding!
Noise level not so good.
Luckily we were outside.
First time to visit Nona Blue, and as we walked in it was a full, boisterous crowd some places two deep at the bar, even well after Happy Hour. We were seated promptly, but with the large crowd, the wait staff were overworked.
The drinks were good, appetizers large, and the food itself very well prepared. The pork chop was huge and perfectly seasoned. And the meatloaf sliders were wonderfully done. Unfortunately, the wait was long, and several of the specials were out. Our server was harried by the number of tables he had, and in the end, we took most our entrees to go.
Again, this seems a great place to hang out, meet friends, and enjoy drinks and appetizers, but not somewhere for a quiet dinner with small talk or business.
That said, we will go back. Food was excellent!
Very lively atmosphere. Definitely recommend making reservations. Drinks were on point and food was very good. Was surprised how quickly we got our food after ordering. Will definitely return.
This was my first time here. It was busier than I thought it would be. Our reservation really saved us a wait. We sat at the bar since we were early. The drinks were quick. The food was amazing and we had good portions. It was pricier than I normally like but it was a special date night. Our server was quick and very friendly.
It was our first visit and we were very happy. We will be back
We come for dinner 2-3 time each quarter, special dinners with friends and family. Tonight just the three of us for a 530 reservation. Seated upon arrival, Lenny was our server. Quick with a smile and drinks, we were intrigued by the specials. Our starters included fire grilled artichokes, margarita flatbread, crab martini, with entrees of Chilean sea bass (the best we’ve ever tasted), street tacos, and mussels. We love their cocktails- Better than Therapy and Baby blue Cosmo! Please try the carrot cake and banoffee pie! Thank you Lenny, she is attentive, friendly, and professional.
Nona Blue is less than a mile from our neighborhood and we are happy to keep it in our favorites.
Our meal was delicious! Justin was our server and he made our experience incredible. His recommendations were spot on and his fun, happy personality was contagious!
Zac was our server and introduced himself as "in charge of your service." That seemed initially odd, until I realized we were being served by everyone, even those passing if they saw an empty glass. Really extraordinary. Love the menu, and the check was reasonable
We go for the prime rib, salmon dip and ahi :) They have the best of both in town!
Great specials steak was great
We arrived right at our reservation time, and were seated immediately. The evening was two fold. It was Valentines’s Day and my wife’s birthday. Sarah our server was prompt with drink orders and appetizer suggestions. As we looked over the menu we decided on the Fire Shrimp and Shrimp Chowder. Both were delicious. For our entree the selection was unanimous. The French Quarter Pasta. The portions were large and very flavorful. Sarah was amazing! Wonderful smile, pleasing personality, and very attentive. She was not intrusive. We were allowed to enjoy every course comfortably. My son and daughter-in-law joined us and we were given space to enjoy great conversation and time together without feeling pressured to eat and leave. Our desserts of Carrot Cake and Cheesecake capped off the night. Our dining experience and service provided certainly warrants another visit to Nona Blue.
We loved this place. It was a little noisy but outside the noise level was better. Food was superb, a good value for the amount of food. Service was wonderful. We will definitely be back!
We’ve been here a bunch of times and they are always good. Better than most bar food. The server was super nice and the restaurant accommodated special requests.
Sunday nite dinner always delicious! Had the Pasta w/Shrimp and ham loved this dish on a cold, rainy night.
We have been to this location many times. On this occasion, we went with friends who never ate at None Blue.
We were quickly seated on the deck. We were greeted by our server and placed our drink order. When the drinks were delivered our serve went over the specials and we ordered our entrees. Our guests new to Nona Blue ordered one of the flatbreads and asked for a couple items to be left off and a couple others to be added. She also asked for the salad not to have any cheese. We also ordered the Veggie Burger and the Steak Frites.
The burger and steak were cooked to perfection. The salad was served with cheese and had to be sent back and remade. The flatbread had one item that was asked to 86 and one item that was asked to be added wasn't. The flatbread was sent back and re-fired correctly the second time. The issues caused the entrees to be sent out while we were still eating our salads.
Glitches happen, but the server and the kitchen should have made everything correctly.
This is still a great place for food and drinks.
Waitress had to be searched for entire time. Others, not her, delivered and helped us. She was rude and cocky. We matched the amount of tip to her service. (More actually.) She came to table
fast for this, confronting us about her tip.
Loudness inside was like Times Square New Years Eve.
Food pretty good.
Bad experience overall.
Food and service was great, but the restaurant was really noisy and way too cold. Would go back maybe for lunch or early dinner but would not go back Friday or Saturday nights. Again way too cold and noisy, but good food.
We sat outside hoping for a quieter dining experience with our multi generational party, it was louder than we’d hoped but the food was great and the service was solid, so we’ll definitely be back!
good food and service. kind of loud and we sat by the bathroom
Always great food and thoughtful service. Always way too loud. Hard to visit with my guests due to noise level. Outside to be quieter. Not so anymore.still, a great restaurant. I’ll be back often ‼️
Pork chop usually great. Sent it back was cold inside. Obviously grilled off earlier. Reheated but dry.
Really enjoyed our first visit here. They called to confirm our reservation and to clarify what sort of table we wanted. Corinne, our server was terrific, very knowledgeable and friendly. We will be back soon!
The menu is Blah, too ordinary. One could not conduct s conversation
It was a great experience!
Great food, fun times and Kelly was amazing
Very good, as usual. Recommend reservations (phone or open table). Dining and cocktails at the bar is an enjoyable alternative.
What a great experience!!! First time back to this restaurant in a while and we were pleasantly surprised. We were sat right away in an incredible booth. The service was incredible!! Our waitress, Kelly, was so accommodating, knowledgeable, and kind. The good was fantastic and the dessert was phenomenal. Perfect date night and can’t wait to come back.
Great food and friendly staff. Definitely would recommend.
Son’s birthday dinner
Great food and service in lively, pretty environment. One of our favorite spots in Jacksonville area.
Service was slow and waiter apparently had too many tables to service. The noise level inside is very loud. It’s hard to carry on a conversation .
Food was yummy. Had the meatloaf an the Mac n cheese. All food was steaming hot except the mashed potatoes...which were ice cold. They brought us a plate of hot potatoes to correct.
I brought my cousin and his family here recently after they just moved to Florida. There were 8 mlm of us between our 2 families, and everything was incredible. The only 1 mistake made was they forgot to blacken the shrimp on my wife's fish tacos, but that was very minor, and they fixed it right way. 3 of us had the fish tacos and they were so delicious. Amber was on top of her game, and made sure we had refills, and that everything was perfect. This was our second time here, and we will definitely be back. We live here locally, and are always looking for different places to dine out. Nona blue is now added to that list.
Excellent food throughout the menu! The burger is top notch! Fantastic meatloaf!
A nice low-keyed sports bar with a pretty large menu and decent, not great, food . . . although one of my friends ordered one of the specials - prime rib - which he thought was great. I had a cheeseburger which was at the bottom of the list of cheeseburgers I have had. Our server was terrific. Atmoshpere was lively. My golf buddies and I enjoyed it.
