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.

...but a few inconsistencies as well. For lunch today, my husband and I shared a pate appetizer -- delicious! Well-seasoned and accompanied by mixed pickles and pita chips, the portion size was large enough for four people, but we managed to gobble it all up ourselves. The fish of his fish and chips was expertly fried, but the fish itself... More

Love the atmosphere and the menu choices. Fresh ingredients, nice presentation. Burgers are HUGE. For Dessert shared the Almond basket with white chocolate mousse with fresh berries. Wonderful! Really cute outdoor/patio type seating with very colorful pillows at each table. Closed on Monday's during the winter.

My first time eating at Never Blue was in October 2014. Best black bean tostada I ever tasted! Enjoyed this tostada with the red pepper gouda soup - a new recipe to me - excellent. Been thinking about it ever since. Had lunch here with three women friends, we were all delighted with our choices. Affordable, fresh - do try... More

We stopped for lunch here today on this first day of snow in 2014. It was freezing outside and we were happy to get inside and get a nice lunch. The wine selection was great; we chose an Argentinian Malbec at a great price for the bottle ($18). Our party of three had a great sampling of the menu. I... More

Just returned from 2 long hours at Never Blue. So frustrated with the service I didn't even want to leave a tip. Our food and drinks arrived early in the 2 hours. You'd think that would be a good thing, right? But the dessert I ordered with our meal (menu specifically stated it would take 20 minutes and to order... More
