“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.

    Nona Blue provided us a fantastic evening! The appetizers were delicious and were the entrees. There was a slight problem with my husband’s prime rib and management quickly rectified the issue much to our satisfaction. Nona Blue will be a Tavern we visit often!

    Disappointing! Certainly not terrible, but far from special. Food was fair , service was very slow and totally haphazard. We were celebrating my 85-year old aunts birthday. She had decided ahead of time to order the prime rib only to be told that they were out of it (at 745 in the evening!) we usually sit outside at this location but, with our elderly guest, we opted for air conditioning. The noise level in the dining room made it nearly impossible to talk with one another-especially as our table was adjacent to the bar area.

    Our party of 3 was seated at a patio high top with great pond views. Waitstaff (Maxi and Brian) was attentive and personable and made great suggestions. Our new favorite - the blackened shrimp tacos, lemon chicken, shrimp cocktail were fabulous and we finished the meal with the infamous warmed carrot cake with frosting and caramel drizzle. Highly recommend for ambiance!

    We love this restaurant for the ambiance and the variety on the menu. My husband had the baby back ribs which were fork tender. I had a large salad with grilled salmon. We love the homemade chips with blue cheese as an appetizer. Our waitress was very attentive. Everything on the menu is well made and delicious.

    Service very good. I had fish and chips. Outer covering of fish soft and not flavorful (prefer beer battered and crispy) Seasoned fries too seasoned and luke warm, had to send back 🙄. Very busy Friday evening around 6.30 and noisy!

    Nona Blue is one of our favorite restaurants in Ponte Vedra. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. The food was excellent! Can’t go wrong with the kettle chips and scallops! The daily specials are always good. Nice outdoor bar and spacious seating.

    Seven women celebrating their friend’s milestone birthday. Great table with plenty of room and wisely away from the main bar area cause we were noisy. We all had several bar drinks and dinner. Everyone ordered something different and enjoyed it very much.

    Overall good experience. Our server Matthew was friendly and timely. The only ding is the greeting hostess (Asian woman) has the personality of a wet mop. She was ot welcoming or seemed interested in the customer base. Thankfully the lady who seated us saved the day with her pleasant and attentive personality. SIde note: My online reservation specifically requested we not be seated by the kitchen.service area or restrooms. A call from restaurant to confirm our reservation and seat preference was received. Hostess purposefully tried to seat us in the very area. I reminded our seater and she said she remembered because she took made the call. Hostess needs customer service training or a new job.

    Seem to have some quirky seating rules and managed to the minute of reservation. I’m sure there’s a good explanation but staff doesn’t seem to provide that clarity. Also with our reservation I had asked about one closer to the water vs being stuck in back corner of patio to be told those are reserved which was the same sign on our table with same # seats. And those tables at front sat empty entire time so maybe I should have insisted but that’s not our style. Just think you need to look at how staff is being trained and make us feel more welcomed. Thx

    Took my Mom here for her Birthday lunch on a Friday. We sat outside, which was nice, and our server was extremely personable and attentive (thanks Seth). The food was on the mediocre side, not bad but nothing notable. I was disappointed that no mention was made of Moms Birthday, not even a simple happy birthday wish.

    Service was a little off tonight. Had to remind the hostess to seat us after checking in. We were seated 20 minutes past our reservations. We sat outside. Bartender was not as friendly as we were used to experiencing. Grilled artichokes, an outstanding appetizer, were not available. Calamari were good but heavily salted. Otherwise, still our favorite spot in PV.

    The food was good, but we had asked to sit outside and not on a high top as my Mother-in-law is 91. Yet when we arrived that type of seating was not available so we were seated in a booth in a very dark area of the restaurant near the kitchen.
