  • It's not every day that I
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/9/2010
    It's not every day that I make reservations to eat. I chose Cobalt because I believed that it would be a nice, fancy place to take my mom for Mother's Day. The environment was nice and the view was great but something was lacking. I expected my mother to be treated like a queen. Starting with the hostess instead of saying, "oh yes Mrs. Gaines, Happy Mother's Day, right this way." It was, "for two?" "Follow me." We ordered coffee but had to ask for sugar and cream. Then when we went to eat, we found many items missing. We went to look for bacon twice and there wasn't any. Finally, we asked the server for bacon. While she did return quickly with it, we wondered, why didn't anyone ever say that if you need anything, don't be afraid to ask.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Took my family to the Cobalt Restaurant for Mother's Day. The atmosphere was no doubt beautiful. The view was breathtaking and the food was good but expected it to be better than just good and a few problems at the buffet line. I was disappointed in the menu only because I viewed the menu on line and it was different than what was served. And obviously the menu on line was a much more interesting selection, not just the meal but also the dessert. Our waitress was very nice but took a long time to get to us. That really shouldn't happen since it was a buffet and much less work for the wait staff. But having said that, it was over all a beautiful day and I would go back. Actually my family from out of town wants to come back and stay there.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Cobalt has one of the best views of the ocean for dining in Vero Beach. You sit high up as you overlook the beach. Tables are strategically placed for maxim views. I have only eaten lunch at Cobalt as I find the dinner and drink prices a bit high for me. Lunch is high too but still more affordable. My lunch was $18.00 for grilled salmon with a delicious bibb lettuce salad (on the same plate). Large servings of each; both perfectly prepared. Service was also perfect except for the error she made with the bill. She split it incorrectly with my dining guest after I had asked her to figure it out a certain way. I have found the food to be delicious and expertly prepared on the 3 lunches I have had at Cobalt. I can certainly recomme

    Lovely Vero Beach location. Food was wonderful and the best we had in Vero. Bread was worth coming back for alone. Pricy, but worth every penny. Went back a second time on this same trip. Taking the kids (infant, toddler, 7yr old) was not a problem. They were very nice even to the kids at this top notch restaurant.

    Had lunch at the Cobalt for my mom's 80th birthday. We ordered two cobb salads and a flatbread tomato dish. The salads were small, unimpressive and the chicken was dry and overdone. We will go back and order something else besides a salad. Beautiful view at our table where we could look out at the ocean. Because it was so cold (60Degrees) we decided to stay indoors to eat. But would love to linger at the outdoor tables some day and watch the ocean while sipping wine. Very nice presentation of the birthday dessert, Bananas Foster. Mom really enjoyed it.

    We live in Vero and this was the first time visiting Cobalt. I took my wife there for our 30th wedding anniversary. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted and seated promptly. The hostess was very friendly. Our table had a nice view of the ocean. Our male waiter was friendly and very good. The food was excellent!! I thought the drink prices were a little high, but they serve premium liquor, so I can overlook that. Our evening was very nice and enjoyable. We will return to Cobalt soon.

    The prix-fixe menu on Valentine's Day was very good but not outstanding. I would have liked one or two more healthy/fish choices for the entree. The appetizers were excellent but the dessert was unremarkable. Fortunately the wine was outstanding. Because I love the ambiance, we will return and hope that the selections improve the next time.

    On a quiet night soon after New Year's celebrations, this was the perfect spot. Contemporary elegance and a knockout view over the water made this a romantic and relaxed dinner. My carpaccio appetizer was a delicious, slight twist on the standard, and all three fish dishes were beautifully sauced and cooked to perfection. A definite must-do when we're back in Vero.

    Beautiful restaurant, part of the outstanding Vero Hotel and Spa. We ate there on a Friday night and the staff was slammed, due to a wedding reception. We were seated outside the bar, which was VERY loud. Still, the service was good considering, and the food was exceptional with an emphasis on local seafood. The restaurant overlooks the ocean, one of the few with that view in Vero.

    My husband and I chose to split an entree (8 oz. filet of beef). We also ordered two salads and two desserts. We had a good experience. Our waiter was wonderful and we had a beautful view of the Atlantic Ocean. The food was good and our steak was cooked exactly as we requested. But, we walked out feeling as though we didn't get much for our money. We spent close to $100 (after tip) for what we received. Pricey, but worth it for it was our anniversary. I'm not sure that we would choose this venue again. It was good, but I guess I expect GREAT for the prices charged. Another minor detail, our table was so wide, we felt as though we were sitting very far apart at our table for two. It was difficult to talk to one another.
