  • "Lovely spot. We love it for the ocean view. The food was really good too with an assortment of options. Great happy hour also."

  • "If you want to go somewhere with great food, range of prices and venue (bar lounge, outdoor grill and formal dining) and gorgeous water views, this is the spot. Open late and off hours as well. An elegant beautiful place. Hotel is the best in town as well."

  • "always a good meal at the Cobalt. Enjoyed the view of the ocean and the good company of our friends, with good food! Love Open Table for making the ease of reservations so simple."

  • "truly disappointing evening - two tries to get a glass of ice, salmon ordered extremely rare came to table well done, amuse bouche too large for plate and difficult to eat without spilling on table, no butter knife, inexcusably bad bread food was tasteless - the customers seemed more at home at a ramada inn - would never return or recommend"

  • "The oysters were bad, the apple cider mignonette was poorly paired, the frozen cocktail sauce was more like a sweet tomato sorbet...even if the oysters were good the flavors didn't work. My husband had the tuna crudo which was bland and served with grassy raw green beans. This restaurant is advertised as a local farm ingredient menu and many of the dishes contained out of season heavy ingredients for a Florida summer season. We sat with empty wine glasses, had to get up to finally ask for another glass of wine and I asked for more sauce for my fish and again had to ask twice! On a positive note, the smoked barley was really interesting and flavorful. The Bourbon Cocktail was great!"

  • "It's great reserving through Open Table. The chef brought out a special appetizer for us. We didn't even order it. The food was nice. We ordered the snapper with the scallop prep. We were glad they accomodated this special request. The service was great. We will go back when we are back in town."

  • "My wife and I stayed at the Kimpton Hotel for our 14th anniversary. It was a short stay, so we decided to eat all our meals at both restaurants. It turned out to be a perfect decision. The food, ambiance, and service was excellant. I would highly recommend both resataurants. In addition, the hotel was fantastic. We are definately going back."

  • "Although we were disappointed that a raging thunderstorm kept us from eating outside, we were seated by a window overlooking the ocean so the view did not disappoint. This dinner was to celebrate our anniversary and both food and wine were outstanding. The lobster bisque could have been warmer but not a big deal. The red snapper recommended by our server was fabulous as was the beet salad. Desserts met expectations. Overall an outstanding experience."

  • "There are very few places along this particular area of the coast that offers a beautiful and elegant oceanside dining experience like this. This was a special occasion for us so we chose to dine off the restaurant menu, which is considerably more expensive. We would definitely return, but would order off the lounge or bar menu, as we felt that it was too expensive for the tiny amount of food that is served. We eat mainly organic food, so we are very familiar with the higher costs of this quality of food and will gladly pay extra for quality, yet we still strongly feel that the portion sizes are extremely small, which is the only thing that left a bad taste in our mouths. Overall, it was a lovely place and we look forward to returning."

  • "Vero beach hotel and resort is the most upscale place in Vero Beach and the views and athmosphere makes this restaurant very appealing. Food was good in general but I was expecting more from my filet mignon. The views of the ocean makes the experience even better."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Beautiful view, elegant decor, comfortable atmosphere. Glazed salmon on barley with leeks and peaches was excellent. "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "If at all possible, eat outside on the patio. We ate there with friends for our anniversary. I had a really yummy and pretty Cosmopolitan. My hubby and I shared a very large lobster bisque ($11 a bit pricey.) It was average. I did not find any lobster bits in it. The snapper was fresh tasting but the edges were dry. Our waitress was very knowledgeable, but I think she had too many tables. I never got my tea, but no biggie. She got free desserts for our whole table to celebrate our anniversary. Decadent delicious chocolate cake with ice cream. "

  • "Took my friend to brunch at the Cobalt. It was nice to have valet parking the attendants were great.We had requested a window table it was a beautiful view very calming. We decided on the brunch and were delighted we did. There were excellent choices on the buffet from ricotta pancakes to grilled swordfish. They also had Mimosas and Bloody Mary bar where you could have endless of either for one set price. There was a beautiful outside patio that looked very inviting next time maybe. Then we topped off our brunch with flaming bananas foster the only thing that was missing with this was to be served over ice cream. "

  • "Have been to Cobalt for brunch, lunch, dinner, happy hour and a company holiday dinner. The food and service are always excellent, and if the weather is nice enough to sit outside and enjoy the ocean, it's hard to beat. One of my favorite places in Vero Beach."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We went on a whim and it was a gem of a discovery. The views of the ocean from the dining area are beautiful; the outdoor area is romantic with the fire pits & ocean at your feet. The food is fit for foodies, the menu changes constantly, the wine list limited but enough of a selection to find something for anyone taste & price point. The staff very friendly and attentive. Wine both times we went, yes it was that good, had problems with their cellar for temperature control. The Hawaiian fish we had was amazing, and they fly in fish from all over the world daily as well as their other items on the menu. Desert the one visit we shared was beautiful presentation and very good. If in Vero Beach make sure to go and enjoy the food and view."

  • "And If Mr. Motown is playing a must to stay in lounge afterwards."

  • "The view is still lovely. Otherwise Cobalt is less than it once was. Our tables were dirty, the menus were incorrect, and our server was not very knowledgeable (with an attitude bordering on belligerent, at times). Some of us ate well and others poorly (despite the server's strong, even hectoring endorsement). It's too bad, but Cobalt is no longer all that good."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "My husband and I have eaten here several times but we brought my mother in law here for her birthday. She was very impressed and loved her meal. The server even brought out a scoop of ice cream with a candle as a surprise!"
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "We went there on April 18th for dinner. The experience was excellent all around: the food was delicious and creatively plated, the service and sommelier were knowledgeable and attentive without being overboard, and the setting was nice. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to enjoy first rate dining in a relaxed, beachfront atmosphere."

  • "We went Saturday of Easter weekend. They were out of their steak recipe on menu. They were out of their special of both seafood and beef. It was 7:30 reservation. We ordered a wine from the wine list and they were our of that as well. My scallops were average. :-(((. Very disappointed. "

  • "I had my sisters here from NY and wanted to go someplace nice. We were offered inside or outside seating. Waiter (Richard) was very accommodating, explained food selections, helpful with drink list, desserts were home made and very nice. Afterwards met friends out at the fire pit and got to talk to new people that we didn't know. We always have a good meal/service/view here."

  • "Wonderful afternoon spent dining, chatting and admiring the view. The Cobalt Restaurant is a gem. The food choices are varied enough to please any pallet and the portions are generous enough to satisfy the hungriest of appetites. Our table had the mussels, turkey wrap, beet salad, sweet potato fries, fried shrimp tacos and cucumber avocado salad. Not a complaint to be had. Our server Will was outstanding. The atmosphere was inviting and relaxed. Not our first time and certainly not our last."

The lobster roll recommended by our waitress Julie was delicious. We enjoyed our lunch outside overlooking the ocean and the whole experience was wonderful."

As for my brunch experience, I had to wait at least 30 minutes, even though I had reservations. didn't like that as my sister was visiting and I needed to have her at the airport, but we made it in time!!!"

  • "a special birthday dinner on the patio, full moon and fabulous food (the sweetbreads as good as any I've had elsewhere). The portions are nice sized - not huge which turnes me off! Some might say too small.) Fire pits, ocean surf and breeze, full moon - what more can you ask for? The staff discerned it was my birthday and comped us our dessert. Nice!"
