The food was fantastic! The chef was brilliantly creative in his creation of Neuvo Cuban cuisine without sacrificing the authenticity of the dishes. Everything, from start to finish, was mouth-watering. Not only will I be sure to return, but I will happily recommend to anyone in the area. Bravo! The staff was also fantastic. Our server was well-spoken, attentive & knowledgable.

A slight disappointment in the signature dish of paella for 2. 33% increase in price since last visit and a change in makeup of ingredients.

We were under the impression
We were under the impression the restaurant had ocean views from the dining room. There was a view of the pool area but not the ocean. Regardless, the atmosphere was very chic and the food was amazing! Can't wait to go back when we are in the Vero Beach area again.

Our first time at this restaurant for dinner and we went for my husbands birthday. We both had excellent meals and they even put together a special dish for our dessert. Very nice, warm welcome and great service.

Vero Beach Cuban Cuzine
The resturarnt was very noisy if you wanted to have a conversation across the table.
Food and service was upscale and most likely the best in Vero Beach. I would dine or party here anytime, a real treat!

We felt like royalty!!!
We went for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From our first drink at the bar with Patty, the bartender, to our meal itself we felt so special. The staff saw to our every need. The chef himself came out to check on us, creating a special appetizer just for us along with champagne!!! Our food was perfect, our table secluded and romantic. Best of all, an anniversary dessert was brought out, candle and all! I cannot praise the experience at the Wave. Thank you to Vinny and Patty and all the staff that worked so hard to make our night unforgettable.

We have been to this restaurant many times before and always enjoy the experience. Our server was a lovely young lady who answered all questions politely and accurately. The food is always fine, it is not the main reason to come here. The lovely atmosphere, the beautiful location and the fun feel is more of a draw than the food itself.

Making a Special Occasion Special
Noted that my wife & I were celebrating a wedding anniversary on our reservation. Upon entry, the staff gave us their best wishes, and the hostess seated us at a very cozy table. The waiter was extremely helpful, and coordinated with the whole staff -- once we ordered a set of recommended ceviches, the executive chef appeared and personally presented a complimentary set of ALL available ceviches -- all very fresh and flavorful. Staff spent extra effort locating for us an Orin Swift wine that they had apparently not been able to find at an earlier time. Manager dropped by to extend his best wishes. Fish of the day -- grouper -- was very well prepared. Dessert selection very interesting. Strongly recommend for any special occasion!

nice decor, a decent view
nice decor, a decent view of the beach. in what appears to be a renovated hotel, so the non restaurant areas are dated, as is the beach view. the center table is very cool for groups. had the ceviche sampler, with 3 choices passion fruit with calamari shrimp, scallop, & passion fruit juice; lobster, coconut and crab with jalapeños, cilantro, & key lime juice; and ahi tuna with avocado, florida orange juice, soy & wasabi...liked the papaya the least, the other 2 were nice. The specialities were from Gloria Estefan's cook book; had the ropa vieja with Cuban creole sauce, pepper & onions...very tender and savory, with just a bit of spice. She had the pollo asado with sour orange olive oil, cuban creole sauce; a very tender dish.Very good meal.

We went to Vero Beach. specifically to stay at the hotel and to eat at the restaurant ... everything met our expectations - the waiter admitted to making an error with our order and that was why it was taking so long. He offered to buy us a dessert. WE didn't even notice that it was a long time; and we were so full - we didn't have dessert. But the fact, that he noticed or thought so and wanted to do something for us - was above and beyond.
Highly recommend this restaurant and the hotel.

Best paella I have ever had!!! Service was mediocre. Ambiance is very nice but also very very loud.

Glad we went!
Food and service was outstanding! We started with the three ceviche sampler! Then shared the crabcake sandwich, the caprese sandwich and the chicken salad at our table, so we could try it all. Desserts were to die for, we had the chocolate bonbon and the flan, shared 3 ways. I'm going back for another lunch in September, can't wait!! The beverage manager actually came around and asked us how everything was( wow, what a rarity these days!), then took us on a tour of the banquet facilities. What a fabulous place for a wedding or event! Our server Andrea was super, Pinot Grigio crisp and fruity, and there is nothing more to say except "Fantastic" in every way!

Best black bean soup!
If you live black bean soup (and mohitos), this is the pace to go! Great food, nice quiet restaurant. If you have a larger party, reserve the center area--surrounded by beads for a special celebration. My sister and I had chateubriand. You know how chefs only like to cook the steaks medium---- I had mine medium well without any fuss! Delicious!!

Enjoyed our stay at Costa d'Este. Wonderful sunrises followed by breakfast at the pool. Great service from attentive pool and outdoor bar staff. Dinner at The Wave was wonderful. Service and food were excellent. Definitely will come again. Nothing short of paradise. Thanks.

A lovely meal well searved and tast
I invited 5 associates to this restaurant in Vero Beach last weekend for dinner .I was delayed but my friends were seated and taken care of until my arrival. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the restaurant, hotel and the Cuban Miami inspired offerings.We ordered a bottle of red that was out of stock but were very happy with the suggested replacement that was suggested.We ordered 6 different entrees and each one was better than the next ,The scallops were delicately seasoned and tender.The Fish of the day was a bit spicy,There were 2 different beef offering a cubed steak and a pulklked flank taht were yummy. We finished with a flour less chocolate bite and ice cream that was a perfect counterpoint to a lovely meal.

A nice gift
Some friends provided us with a gift certificate to The Wave, which we had never experienced in our 4-5 previous trips to Vero Beach. We were very pleased with the overall experience, the food, the ambience, just everything. Donny, our waiter, was very attentive to our needs. For anyone seeking a romantic dinner, The Wave qualifies without a doubt.

Vero Beach Trreasure
The Wave Bar and Grill proved to be everything and more that we heard it was. From the moment you walk in the door until you leave, you are given top notch service. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable with the menu both the food and wine selections. This is a great place to go to celebrate a special event...A definite repeat when we return to the Vero Beach area!!
