“Great atmosphere and Wonderful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

It was a great evening that starting by enjoying a pitcher of Sangria. The three of us each had something different: tapas, salads, and main entree. We loved the variety of dishes from the ingredients to the portions. Mary's Rent Cocas was awesome and loved the Beets tapas too. if you are looking for a great atmosphere that is fun and relaxed, check it out

“Great value; interesting menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

My wife and I dined here, with her long-lost friend and husband on a weekday evening. Parking was sparse, but the short walk was worth the effort. The restaurant is in a restored building - very interesting layout, with indoor and outdoor seating. The server was very attentive while we talked and reviewed the very varied menu. Ultimately, we all had very good meals, at exceptional prices. Our total bill, before tip, for three martini specials, iced tea and two generous entrees was $36. I had to check it to make sure everything was included. The only negative was that it was very hard to get the server's attention for additional drinks after the meals were served. Overall, it was a terrific value. Highly recommend.

“Excellent Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

My husband and I were passing through the area on our way to our vacation spot and decided to check out Hendersonville. We walked up and down the street, but it was Never Blue that caught our attention. Since it was around 1:00 pm on a Friday, none the seating areas were full and we were seated promptly. We loved the decore and the set up of the inside space as well as the beautiful mosaic work around the bar area.

Service, despite other reviews was friendly and prompt. We opted for the three plates - the Blue Fries, Smoke Rings, and Lamb Quesadilla. While all were very good, the Lamb Quesadilla was above and beyond - very delicious if you are a lamb fan. They were having a special on their basic red or white sangria pitchers, so we ordered a red sangria pitcher. Not only was it delicious, there was a lot in that pitcher! We couldn't even finish it all or we would not have been able to drive!

If we are ever in Hendersonville again, we will certainly be stopping by.
