“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.

They have never let us down. The meal was great. The steaks are awesome. The only thing that was kind of disappointing was the strawberry margarita. There was no color and a few strawberries. Other than that it was great.

Everything was great...excellent service and the lemon chicken is just a basic chicken and potatoes dish that Nona took to another level. Nona is fast becoming one of our favorite restaurants.

We celebrated a special event at Nona Blue, The service was excellent, our meals were well prepared and tasty, the beer cold and the wine served as it should be. The atmosphere was attractive, warm, and inviting. We enjoyed it all immensely.

Went to Nona Blue for lunch last Saturday. Sat inside and the place was nice and clean, but the food was below average and very disappointing. Ordered a side of Asparagus, but when it came it was 5 stalks which were cold and smoky for $6. The steak was filled with grizzle and fat. Very disappointed as I had heard good things about this place, but I would definitely not recommend it. Everything seemed pre-made and microwaved.

Great Server: Megan
Food: The tuna steak was terrific, the pineapple rib eye just so so.
Drinks: the tonic was flat regardless of which bar it came from and while she couldn’t fix the problem our server was very responsive.
Other: it was a rather windy night so we had asked for the screen to be dropped which it was, making everything a bit more comfortable. Then later a restaurant employee insists on raising it again to see if it is still needed... it was. Not sure why our desire was challenged, other guests had their screens pulled down as well after seeing ours down. This easily could have waited until we departed.

It was our first visit to Nona Blue. We had a 5:30 reservation and when we arrived they wanted to sit us directly behind the hostess stand even though there were many other empty booths/tables. When I asked for a different booth the hostess said that they were "reserved". Didn't quite get that. Also, food was average. Grilled steak salad was not great. Steak was undercooked and chewy. When we brought it to our servers attention he took it away and sent the Manager over. She offered her apologies and a complimentary dessert. That was a nice gesture, but they should have removed the charge for the salad from our bill and they did not.

The food here is very good and has something for everyone. It's upscale in atmosphere and perfectly friendly and the servers are excellent. Try the Italian Meatballs appetizer (divine and robust) or the fried calamari. You can't go wrong with anything. All the handhelds are excellent and for their entrees we love the Meatloaf, Sea Scallops and whatever special they have like Grouper or steaks are truly excellent. A great choice for small groups or just two. Has inside & outside seating. Love it here.

A friend and I had lunch at Nona Blue. As requested, we were seated at an outdoor table along the pond. We both ordered the American burger and a glass of wine. The burger was cooked to order and was delicious. Zach provided exceptional service throughout. A very nice experience and we will be back!

This was our first time in the restaurant and it was memorable. I can't eat pasta but they were happy to oblige my need to replace the pasta with mashed potatoes in the Shrimp and Andouille Sausage pasta. Mashed potatoes were awesome with that dish. Hubby stuck with pasta and he enjoyed his as well.
The True Blue martini is incredible!!

Ordered two salads for an app. Never came. We had a table of 4. 3 glasses of wine came. 4th came 20 minutes later. My friend ordered the medium sized prime rib medium temp. It came out very raw. Had to send it back. Meanwhile the three of us started eating or our door would be cold. Not sure why the place has gown down hill.

In today’s day in age where I don’t go out to eat as often as I used to, it was just a sub par experience. You pay good monies it should be great. Prior to Covid I ate there 2-3 times a week. Manager seemed not to really care.

To bad!

We visited for my daughter's sweet sixteen birthday. The restaurant is exceptional! The food is delicious! Don't hesitate to order lemon chicken! My only concern was due to COVID, the tables were closer to each other than other restaurants I visited. I will definitely go back when I go back to Florida!
