    Everything from the decor to dessert is wonderful at this restaurant. It definitely is a pricier option but well worth it for a special occasion. The filet was the hit of the night and second was the Chilean sea bass dish. We loved our waiter Scott.

    We had a great dinner here with our neighbors. The ladies had short ribs while Rick and I had steaks. Mine came rare (as ordered) and was excellent. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Good wine list with some reasonably priced wines. Parking is easy if you use the hotel valet. It's a pretty room and quite enough to have a decent conversation with good friends during dinner. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone planning to visit St Augustine.

    We took our parents to 95 Cordova to celebrate their 56th wedding anniversary and had a lovely time The sea bass and salmon were Outstanding. Our server, Scott, was attentive without being intrusive. The host who seated us was also very attentive to our needs. I am never dissappointed when we come here. This is the best restaurant in St. Augustine!

    Went for an anniversary dinner. Braised short rib was beyond tough. Replacement steak slightly overcooked. I got to watch my wife eat her anniversary dinner then she got to watch me eat mine. We were going to relax over coffee and her espresso was good but my coffee was cold. Disappointing. Only gave the food 2 stars because my wife loved her entrée.

    All the food we ordered was really good. Only 4 stars due to them being out of the wine we ordered, then out of the Apple Pie we wanted for dessert. No big deal, maybe just a bad cooincidence but definitely noticed. Waiter was great and very polite. Music was a bit interesting for the look of the place.

    We have been coming to this restaurant for several years while on vacation in this area. Food was very good. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The side order portions appeared smaller than normal and some came out cold. Our server, Elvis, nice guy, but was slow and not as attentive as Lloyd. So we did not dare send them back. Also, when you have to ask for drink refills and then it takes forever, it is not a good sign. Which has not been typical of what we are familiar with at this location. We may look at different eating options especially for the prices at this place.

    Superb cuisine and service. All the waiters and captains are friendly, courteous, and attentive. Great atmosphere and relatively quiet so it is easy to talk to your table guests. Overall, it is a cut above any restaurant in the area. I only wish that the dress code was not so relaxed there, as it is a restaurant that one wants to dress up to go to.

    We enjoyed our waitor, “Scot” who was very sweet and attentive. Our ONLY issue was the music...ick! Techno XM was totally wrong for the vibe we were going for and we mentioned it to the manager who came around to greet us. He dutifully checked it out and reported it was a “corporate thing” well....hey corporate! It’s time for a station change.....no one in the restaurant was an age where that music would have been appreciated.

    It had been several years since we last dined at 95 Cordova and decided to take our special guests from Madrid, Spain for a good dining experience while in St. Augustine. We were seated promptly and enjoyed good conversation until I began to notice that our waiter, Scott, had not yet greeted our table (the restaurant was nearly empty at the time). He took five or more minutes following to provide us water and our wine order. Ten minutes later, my wife asked him if they would serve us bread with the meal and he then complied. Percy, the manager, refilled our bread order attentively. It took fifteen minutes to receive our dessert order. We will think twice before returning to this restaurant due to very average service. Unengaged server!

    We are new to the area and have been looking for quality fine dining. 95 Cordova came highly recommended as a special occasion restraint. The meal started well with good quality apps served hot. The duck egg roll and crab cakes were both quality dishes. We should have stopped there. This is NOT a steakhouse! They do not know how to cook a steak to requested temp nor do they know how to season. We ordered 2 "prime" steaks. I believe them to be choice at best. Both nearly inedible due to over seasoning and over cooking. We had to ask for butter to place on top of our steaks and wash them from the excessive seasoning. We do not send food back as a matter of policy. I wonder if they ever taste their own food?

Nonetheless, the Chef's exquisite meal preparation and excellence is, of course, the reason we were there.

    Does the Title of this review sound "hum-drum" to you? Oh, contrare..... This place hits home runs each and ever time we come here to dine whether its brunch, lunch or dinner. It is coming to the point were my wife and I simply head from Hammock Dunes to 95 Cordova without thinking of going anywhere else. If we rode Horse and Buggy, our horse would be 'barn-sour' for this place. Truth be told, there are a few, very few other places we love to visit, but the other places hours don't start until 4:00 p.m. and my bride and I usually enjoy a late lunch as our preference. So, 95 Cordova, HERE WE COME !!!

    An outstanding time was held at 95 Cordova. We were greeted by name upon arrival and immediately seated at the table we had requested. We told our waiter we were there to dine and have the opportunity to talk with our daughter and son-in-law. We took our time drinking a cocktail and eating. Not once did we feel rushed. Food was excellent as was service. Perhaps the best place in St. Augustine for a quiet, no hurried, special dining experience.

    We recently dined at 95 Cordova restaurant & enjoyed a wonderful leisure dinner. Our waiter was very attentive but did not rush our dining experience. My husband had the sea bass & I had the 5 oz. Filet, both entree's were delicious. My vodka & tonic was weak on the vodka. A good restaurant for a special occasion, but on the pricey side.

    I confess I have been dining at the Casa Monica Hotel / 95 Cordova Restaurant for some time. I didn't find out about their relationship with OpenTable until just last week. My wife and I have truly never been disappointed; NEVER. A special 'thank you' to Chef Aaron not only for his obviously highly skilled culinary talents, but his concern to deal with my wife's food allergies. I recommend 95 Cordova highly to anyone who wants to step back and thoroughly enjoy a meal as a fine dining experience. Their obviously well-trained staff are as subtle as any could possibly be. You’ll love it. I promise that. Michael-Edward.

    95 Cordova is in the Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine's Old Town District. The historic hotel has been beautifully restored and the restaurant is beautiful. The menu for both lunch and dinner is varied, delicious, and the food presentations - artistic. I'd highly recommend anyone visiting St. Augustine to treat themselves to a meal at 95 Cordova. Lunch prices, in particular, are no more expensive than most of it's neighboring cafes and restaurants.

    Visited the restaraunt a few times in the past five years and generally had a good experience. Unfortunatley brought some new friends recently and was disappointed to be seated too close to the live music which wad too loud for such an elegant place while also hearing the music from a wedding in another room. Was moved after I insisted and was seated in a better spot. My filet w shrimp was ok but the steak was not medium as ordered but I didnt send back since we had already been delayed due to the wait for the bew table. My guests were not impressed and I was disappointed.

    Planned my husband's surprise birthday party at 95 Cordova. I would say everything went without a hitch minus the fact that the hostess ruined the surprise the moment I stepped in with my husband. All the guests had arrived seated and was waiting quietly for the guest of honor to arrive and surprise him, however, the hostess said, "Oh you're here for the surprise birthday party?". To which my husband looked at me and said "surprise party huh", I hung my head down and was a bit upset by this. Epic fail on her part! Albeit that hiccup, the food was excellent, the ambiance was beautiful and reminded us of the Moorish influence in Spain. Would go again, but would avoid planning any surprise parties whatsoever.

    A lot of restaurants provide either good food, good ambience, or good service. Due to the price-tag, I had assumed it was going to have all 3. Unfortunately, the only thing that my wife and I enjoyed was the ambience. The service was fine, but felt like the waiter was phoning it in, and the food was extremely forgettable.

    We were staying at the World Golf Village and were tired of the one restaurant food there so asked the concierge to recommend a place. He had no hesitation with 95 Cordova for the best steaks. We started with the grilled shrimp - the sauce was wonderfully sticky and spicy. Then I had the duck 2 ways and my husband had the New York. Both were succulent and delicious. We finished off with the Key Lime pie which was a real treat. The service was excellent as well.
