The interior decor is an explosion of color and lets you know immediately the dining experience will be different. The menu selection is huge with a focus on fresh produce and grains. We had the kale salad and two types of handcrafted tacos. The tacos were a tad bit dry. The salad was tangy and... read more

Enjoyable dinner in downtown Hendersonville. Excellent service, tasty tapas, and Wednesday night Margarita special! The Taco Cubano (chicken) and Buffalo Shrimp Taco , combined with a savory side of black beans were just right. Combine the excellent Anguisette margarita with the charming interior, and you have a recipe for relaxing. Looks like the bar could be fun, too.

We had Huevos Rancheros and Huevos Montana. The Montana had fabulous grits made with Parmesan and sour cream. The eggs were perfection. excellent coffee and the cocktails look beautiful. Everything is made with the best ingredients. Delightful interior with fun colors and nooks here and there for semi-private dining. Sheltered outdoor seating

The first thing you notice when you walk in is the fun and funky atmosphere. The eclectic but refined vibe makes you instantly feel at ease. The menu is also fun and inspired with a great choice of very edible options that have a slight twist on the ordinary. We had 5 in our party and were served very quickly... More

Today we returned to Never Blue after an absence of several years. It was great to note that the decor and overall ambiance were the same--tasteful, interesting art on the walls, colorful, and comfortable. However the food selections were mixed ranging from "needs improvement" to "good." This inconsistency was what we had remembered from earlier visits and were sorry that... More

Always a treat to go for lunch at Never Blue. Best soup. Love the fish tacos. Desserts are awesome, especially the big, fat chocolate cake!

The food always fresh and flavorful. Service can be slow at times but it's still worth the wait. Check out the art on the walls as you wait, and enjoy the atmosphere.

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Never Blue. Fish & Chips and Chop Chop were excellent. Light, but filling. The Coconut Sorbet was an excellent after lunch treat!

Beautiful restaurant, excellent food and menu of some unusual items. Only complaint is the slow service. Did not like my dessert but it was quickly replaced with another. Whatever you do, you must try the "Devils on Horseback". This Tapa is an assault of unforgettable flavor.
