    Cobalt is a great place for lunch. Outside dining right on the ocean so the view is spectacular. Can't beat it. Food is very good also. I always have the Lobster Roll and fresh cucumber-avocado salad. Num. Our group of eight met there for lunch last week and all enjoyed.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Dined on 3/3/2014
    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.

    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 -

    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.

    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.

    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 2/15/2014
    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.

    The only problem was they did not inform us of the valentine menu. I had my heart set on Salmon which was not on the menu. The set price was rather steep and included desert which I do not eat. They we're suppose to offer champagne which we never got. Food was good but I would never go on Valentin's Day unless they let you order from the regular menu.

    Two of us at the table ordered cheeseburgers cooked medium. They both came well and took a while to get to us. We eat here a lot and the food always comes in a timely fashion and is always very good. Our server came by and asked how everything was and I said good except that the burgers were overdone. She spoke with the kitchen and came back to offer us both a new burger. We were both nearly half way through and asked if we could split one. We left the second half of our well done burgers and waited for the next burger which didn't take long and came out perfect. Sometimes things go wrong even in a good restaurant but the key is how do they resolve the issue. They did a great job and we will be back there within a week.

    An upscale evening with fabulous food and a special atmosphere outside! We sat outside on a large patio listening to the ocean. They had outdoor heaters and a beautiful fire pit area. There are few good restaurants on the beach in Vero , so this is worth the expense for a special evening! Our party of 4 loved everything we had, but some standouts were a lobster appetizer, the fish with quinoa, truffle fries,and the peanut butter cheesecake... And great bread!!
