Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "It was a perfect evening --- the Virginia oysters on the half shell were so so good - my husband had a special - pan roasted salmon w an avocado creme base and roasted corn salsa was superb - my scallops with risotto and roasted cauliflower etc was also perfection - our server Tom did a great job - Richard, who normally has helped us was there and went out of his way to make our night special.!!! Locals should eat here - WHAT A TREAT.!!"

  • "I've been in Vero 3 yrs. Cobalt is my favorite!!!! love the food, service and the patio!!!! 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!"

  • "Pleasant room with outdoor seating as well. Service was top-notch. Food is of very high quality -- though perhaps a bit aggressively flavored for some taste buds."

  • "Ambiance and food were great. Management was considerate. We were a group of 7 friends and had much to talk about. But it took over a hour to take our order and over 2 hours to get our food. Management apologized and gave us free, impressive desserts and coffee. We should have made our lunch reservation for noon. Two large groups were seated before us and completely tied up the service and kitchen."

  • "Had a nice dinner with group of six women after a long day. Had drinks on patio right on beach with beautiful view of Atlantic Ocean. Dinner inside was very good. Would recommend for Vero Beach Dining."

  • "The food wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be and was very expensive. Service was good and the drinks were great. The dessert menu was lacking. Coffee was excellent."

  • "Our reservations were honored right on time, the food was very good as was the service. The room is very romantic and is on the beachside of the hotel. It was Friday night and they had a husband and wife team singing in the lounge. They played all types of music and there was dancing and a good time had by the people in the lounge. We went into the lounge straight from dinner and enjoyed the rest of our evening until the singers finished and it was time to go. We have been to the Cobalt room at the Vero Beach Hotel before and will certainly go again."

  • "I thought the food, lobster roll was excellent. Truffle fries, outstanding. Wonderful table with a few of the ocean. Sitting under a vent I was cold throughout lunch. Never offered a refill on my ice tea...just as well because I was so cold!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "I am NOT a foodie, nor do I notice or practically care about distinct flavors, however Cobalt served some of the best and creative dishes I have eaten. the beet the salad was unusually excellent, the lobster main course is outstanding and the toffee bread pudding was to die for"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "We had enjoyed Cobalt happy hours several times due to bar snacks and cocktails at great prices. We selected Cobalt because of our happy hour experience and other Kimpton Hotel visits. Ambience and service were superb and dining area with ocean views was large enough to permit us a more private table. Waiter was very attentive and checked on us frequently. The beet and cabbage salad was creative and tasty, also complementary based on our Open Table reservations. My snapper was excellent but my wife's sweet potato gnocchi was not thoroughly cooked and the bottom crust of peanut butter pie was like concrete, although taste was good. Chef did come out when he heard about the gnocchi, as they were trying, but had overlooked a few basics."

  • "I wanted a restaurant that would allow 5 family members who hadn't seen each other in 35 years to enjoy a leisurely lunch. I live 2 hours away and was unfamiliar with the restaurant . Open Table was most helpful AND the restaurant was sensational!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "This was a great place to get together with friends for lunch. We were welcomed by a friendly hostess, who escorted us to the lounge so we could grab a drink while waiting for our table. Once seated outside, we placed our order and enjoyed the gorgeous view of the ocean. Our server brought our plates, but got 2 of the orders wrong....no problem, it was fixed quickly and professionally. Our group ordered the steak sandwich, a burger, a wrap, and a fried green tomato BLT....everyone was pleased. If you are looking for a nice relaxing place to bring friends, show them the view, and have great food and service, then this is it!!!!"

  • "Limited parking, but Free valet service. There is a very large balcony with spectacular ocean views for outside dining. large well trained staff. The food is outstanding with excellent portions. Has a very active and fun bar. I rated the noise level as moderate because of the bar noise but it was not annoying, it sort of made you want to go to the bar after dinner. We were seated one table from the bar door. When you arrive, turn left into the glass doors to the elevator to skip the stairs in the hotel lobby. Try the Muscato wine. Book early, they fill up fast. We received an excellent free Lobster appetizer because we made reservations through Open Table. We will go back."

  • "It was my husband's birthday February 23rd and I wanted to take him to Cobalt for its Sunday brunch - the brunch offers both breakfast and luncheon items. We chose to have lunch since we normally order from the breakfast section - My husband had the fried green tomato sandwich and I had the maui fish sandwich. Both were great - we shared truffled fries and cole slaw for sides. Great! Normally we do not get dessert but opted for a delicious peanut butter cheesecake slice with a great not overly sweet fudge sauce w/inhouse made banana ice cream - it was a very happy birthday brunch -"

  • "We made an open table reservation ahead of time for a 60th birthday and requested a nice table with a view. Not only did they not have a table that we requested, they scrambled to stick us in another room without a view by a door."

  • "From the initial welcome to the final goodbye, this was an excellent experience. Staff was competent, helpful and friendly. I had the best sirloin burger of my life. Cooked perfectly medium rare with no bun, as ordered, the beef stands on its own, beefy and juicy, it can't get any better. It was served with onion jam and, fries as good as any we've had in France and Belgium, where they are an obsession. My wife's lobster roll was every pronounced to be "as good as you make" at our beach house in Rhode Island. She also said that the cucumber and avocado side was amazing. We are building a new home in Vero and look forward to eating our way around the Cobalt menu in the future."

  • "Overall excellent in everyway! The food is superb and served in portions that allow you to fully enjoy all the wonderful flavors without over stuffing yourself. Can't say enough about the quality as well as the gorgeous view!!!"

  • "Your menu is not up to date. Several items you mentioned were not available."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Restaurant was way too loud, music in bar area made it impossible to have a conversation in the restaurant. Waiter was rushed and said that he would only recommend 2 things on the menu, when asked about another entrée he reiterated that those were really the only things he felt were worth ordering. Waiter never removed my cocktail glass when he brought 2nd and we had to wait & wait for our dishes to be cleared. Food was fair, pumpkin soup was way too thick to be called soup, spinach salad was small & tasteless, we both ordered his suggestion which was the strip steak special, it was overcooked and not tasty. I have only dined at this restaurant for lunch outside before...I would not recommend for dinner at all."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food and atmosphere were great. Service was very good until we got to dessert. We were told some selections were not available (after we had ordered) and it took over 35 minutes to be served dessert. Granted, we were a party of 10 but we all felt 35 minutes was a bit too long. The delay dampened what had been a great experience to that point. We will definitely be back but might skip dessert next time."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "While the food was EXCELLENT, there was not enough of it. We do not mind ordering Ala Cart, but the description of my seafood selection must have listed at least 3 or 4 other vegetables, and yet I could hardly find them when my meal was served. The serving size of the actual fish was generous and delicious. Our server was also very slow taking our order. While he may have been waiting for us to signal, it would have been nice if, instead of just walking by that he had actually stopped to see if we were ready to order. After walking by 3 times or more, we finally had to flag him to stop. We did not order desert because we were still hungry for dinner. The prices seemed high on that account. The cocktails were generous."
