“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 had such a good time. Our friends came in from Pennsylvania and of course the question is where to take them to dinner we wanted someplace that had a nice vibe to it. Something special a good menu, a good service and good value and good food . Blue, Nona tavern did it again And hit a home run on all items. Thank you.

    I took a friend to brunch for her birthday. We were seated outdoors along the pond, as per my request. Ava provided expert service throughout. After dropping off the check, she confessed that this was only her second day on the job. We were shocked. She was so young, friendly, and professional - impressive! We both ordered the lemon ricotta pancakes with applewood bacon and potatoes for our meals. The food was delicious and we each were given a nice sized portion! Ava checked on how we were doing a few times (not hovering, just right) and brought me two refills of decaf in a timely manner. My friend and I highly recommend Nona Blue and ask for Ava!

    Excellent patio location to watch the NFL playoffs. Katiana was a wonderful personable and attentive server. Loves the spinach and artichoke dip with crostini and the flexibility with the shrimp pasta dish - yum !

    Fun modern bar ambiance. Friendly and attentive service. Chris, our waiter was excellent. Menu and dishes are nice and well executed. Only negatives were they are out of the crispy artichoke and had heard rave reviews about them. The other is the menu is a bit heavy. For example, would love it if there were a few offerings on the appetizers that weren’t fried. Maybe a grilled octopus or calamari, less dips more farm fresh. Among our friends we had the calamari and tuna appetizers. Calamari was fresh, and tender. Tuna was one of the few lighter offerings and was excellent Among us we had the steak, the house brined pork chop and the scallops entrees. Every one was delicious. We hoped the scallops would be on the lighter side. They were perfectly cooked tender and juicy. But It comes with a butter cream sauce that could easily have been left out or better served in a white wine/lemon butter broth. Pork chop was outstanding. Mashed potatoes that came with the steak and pork were also a big favorite. Would definitely recommend and look forward to going back. Also great cocktail menu!

    Good food but lettuce, on one of the salads, was a bit rusty….but they did take it off and took care of us! Excellent place, but service… more of a waiter than a server….pleasant, nice, personable, etc but still eating and have to ask for more tea. I tend to judge service by not having to ask…if you are low on tea and still in the middle of eating you just bring it…I served for years and that is what you do for service…waiting tables is the customer has to wait and ask you for everything. Definitely go back…still good food, pleasant staff!!

    Nona blue is a good restaurant. But what makes us restaurant so good is the service. The front desk is very cordial and welcoming. What made our night so special with the amazing server name Janine (Aka: Qinqua). She was perfect and very enjoyable. The food is OK but not great but the atmosphere and the service is excellent. We continue to go back.

    Terrible. Called me 3x to confirm then had to wait while they looked for a table when we arrived. Gave us a table at the kitchen door which I declined. My son had steak and baked potato which he asked for with no butter. Both came slathered in butter. Sent back My husband had the pork chop which was dry and flavourless. I had fish and chips which was ok. Over hyped sports bar with tvs everywhere. Had to ask for cutlery and water. Don’t waste your time or money here. Many better places in the same area.

    We are in town for a business trip and my wife and I chose Nona Blue as it was very close to the hotel we were at and has good reviews. We chose to eat on the patio when we made the reservation (which is covered and heated). Inside it was very busy and yes, a bit noisy, but a great atmosphere. The food was excellent and service was great. I also appreciated the phone call in advance to ensure no one in our party had food allergies and confirmed that we wished to sit outside (just a very nice gesture in my opinion and shows that the restaurant is well-organized to ensure all guests are accommodated). We will be back.

    We ordered the steak and also the lemon chicken both had amazing flavor and were so moist and cooked perfectly. The cucumber martini wasn’t that strong but had great flavor and was very refreshing. Can get a bit loud but overall good vibe and great service.

    Portions of the orders arrived cold, partially cooked and had to be sent back to microwave. Coffee was the bottom of the pot, bitter and room temperature. 8:30 at night and a cup of coffee with dessert was too much to ask for. No offer to refill much less make a fresh pot. No avacado appetizer with a Fresh Market and Publix next door. Had to ask, then wait for salt and pepper.

    We are locals that eat here at least twice per month. The service has taken a significant turn for the worst the last 3-4 times we’ve gone. Food is good but when you need to find your own server and can’t even get drink or water refills, it’s just not worth the price.
