A friendly staff on a snowy evening. The food was amazing. We had a cheese/olive platter and fried green tomatoes. Yummy! There was an oyster stew special that had so many surprising layers, not to miss. Our server was joyful, kind and attentive.

Went for a birthday dinner. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Made great food suggestions. We were in the back half of the restaurant and it was super quiet.

Cobalt Grille exceeded any and all expectations I didn't know I had. I wanted to go back the moment I left the building. Everything was delicious and the service was beyond amazing. Easily the best dinner I've had in years, if not ever.

Is it possible that a restaurant that has been around for years has gotten better? After our dinner last night, not only is it possible but it is occurring at Cobalt Grill. They have really hit their stride with delicious menu options and specials. The cocktails are always spot-on. Do yourself a favor and go back to Cobalt Grill.

My husband had lamb and I had duck.
Delicious both!!! Even the spinach is really good. One of the best side dishes is the Risotto.
And the prices are very decent.
We like this place very much.

We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve dinner at Cobalt Grill! With the reservations I made through “open table“, we were seated as soon as we arrived, the service was perfect and the food was impeccable. Worth every penny!

Cobalt is one of our favorites because we've never had a bad experience! We look forward to the new specials the chef creates and their food is perfection every time!! If you're celebrating a special event or just want to grab a bite with a friend, it's the perfect spot!

Food was good. The calamari could have been more crispy. The texture took away from the delicious seasoning. Other than that great quality and friendly staff.

We had reservations so there was no wait to be seated. The venue was well laid out but moderately decorated. The safe was well utilized so although it was busy and crowded, it didn’t appear tight. The wait for service was a bit long seeing we were seated immediately, took 10-15 minutes before water and the waitress did not introduce herself. I like to know who will be bringing me my food and attending to me. We both ordered the cup of she crab soup as appetizers. The flavor of the soup was really good but the she crab was made with onions which made it impossible to eat for me with my dietary sensitivities. My date also found it tasty and completely finished her bowl. Because I could not eat the soup I ordered the mussels instead. The presentation was mediocre and served with too many greens. The flavor was delicious and the mussels were perfectly tender, the bread points however I thought were stale, so I asked for more. They brought more that were more toasted but still not right. I ordered the salmon filet medium, it was served with farro grain and a bed of spaghetti medley mixed vegetables. The salmon was good but overcooked. The medley was very tasty with the sauce that accompanied the salmon but arrived matted… like something was resting on it. My date ordered the shrimp and scallop risotto and said it was delicious, but shared my sentiments with the other issues. She ordered a Paloma Blanco to drink and I had a Blue Moon and Jack on the rocks. She said her drink was really good, my beer was nice and cold but my whiskey was a moderate pour. Overall I would rate this experience a 7 out of 10, good ambiance, good friendly service but not great, I believe service really make your my dining experience. The food was slightly better than average lacking finesse and attention to detail. Pricing was slightly high for the experience and my honest opinion is it wasn’t a bad experience but did not meet my expectations.

Had an excellent experience at Cobalt Grille. Pleasantly surprised that we were dining there on burger night. The burger was cooked perfectly to temperature and the fries were tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

The food is amazing. Last night Yellow Fin entree with amazing butter lemon sauce, asparagus, and an utterly-amazing grilled potato thing. The cocktail was equally-amazing, blueberry martinis with real blueberries floating around. This was our second time eating there. The first time I had the amazing Sticky Pudding desert, a cake made from dates...unbelievable. We're going to start going here more-often, becoming a personal favorite of mine.

From start to finish this was an amazing experience! We originally had reservations for 7:30 on Thanksgiving Eve, we arrived much earlier and they were able to accommodate us. The hostess was super friendly and we met the co-owner when we walked in as well. Our server was fantastic! The drinks were on point! We had the mussels and the carpaccio apps. They were phenomenal! For entrees- The duck was outstanding and the NY strip steak was amazing. For dessert - creme brûlée and key lime pie were the perfect end to our meal. Highly recommend this place! We will definitely be back!!

We have been going there for years but this obviously was an off night. The crab dip was so fishy I couldn’t eat it and my husband’s steak which was a New York strip look like it came from a bargain package it was maybe a half inch thick and he ordered it medium and it came out rare. He didn’t wanna send it back because it was so then he said it would be tough. Just not a good experience this time.

The food and service is always excellent. The noise level is high even when the place is not full of customers. We ate at 6 pm, not even half full but noise lever distracting. I would recommend this place to friends, but I would advise them of the noise level.
