We did New Year’s Eve a day early so we could be home with a nervous dog, during the fireworks! We shared the Fried green tomatoes, then the Filet special. It was primo! The Risotto was spot on, cheesy, creamy, not too wet or too dry and the rice done just right. The beef was extremely tender and with a perfect sauce to bring out its best features.
We got a wine that was new to us, and again, outstanding!

Half-price hamburgers were very disappointing. Those in our party who ordered them said the she-crab soup was much better.

The Beef Napolean was delectable & amazingly tender. The service & atmosphere were superb. It was just such a lovely experience that I would definitely repeat it & certainly recommend it to others.

Food was excellent, service very good. Very extensive wine list for a restaurant of its size. One of our party returned her steak which was overcooked; it was promptly replaced. Bar does not stock Aperol.

Occasion was mid-afternoon Thanksgiving Dinner. Good crowd and attentive service. Turkey entries were delicious; duck breast entry very small. She-Crab soup a bit diluted. Everything else as expected for a special day and good restaurant.

Dropped in for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Wine selection was excellent. Turkey with all the trimmings was very tasty. Lauren, our waitress, was friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Our table for two was secluded and romantic.
Looking forward to Christmas dinner with Cobalt Grille.

Have always had a good experience here but not this last time. Waiter seemed very inexperienced. He forgot to bring bread when it was asked for and basically shrugged it off when he remembered. Our friend received cold mashed potatoes, sent them back and the replacement potatoes were not hot. He gave up on them. It was sad because we had always liked this restaurant.

My wife and celebrated our 7th anniversary at Cobalt Grille and it was perfect. We started of with wine, we weren't sure exactly which red wine we would like, we described our taste in wine to waitress and she made the perfect recommendation. For our main course my wife had the new York strip and it was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. I had the lamb chops and they were just as amazing. I recommend Cobalt Grille for any occasion the food and atmosphere are great.

Food was delicious! Had great wine and a very tasty Old Fashioned. Service was great -water always filled. There were 7 of us, so only one check and 20% gratuity automatically added --- the only downside. Very good overall - food was worth it!

Lovely atmosphere, great service and food. We went for burger night and enjoyed the bacon blue cheese burgers - perfectly cooked beef on a brioche bun - yum. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Service was also perfect - our server was attentive and friendly.

Ok, somehow all food, including the signature dish, taste vary salty to me. I guess that's why no salt and pepper as table condiments for a high end restaurant... You don't need to.

Food was good. Drinks took a little too long but it was the last weekend of the Groupon so I'm guessing that's why.

I ordered the New York Strip steak because I had not had a steak in a long time. When I received the steak which was $29 I was just a little put off that the side was French fries. That would have been okay if the steak had been good. It was riddled with gristle and mostly tough. Very disappointing.

We enjoyed the delicious Ceasar salad to begin our dining then we enjoyed beautifully presented plates one being a Flounder Oscar style and the other Lamb Chops served with a parmesan risotto. We would recommend this restaraunt and we plan to return.

The service was excellent.
The food was also excellent. I had a flounder special served on potatoes with a light cream sauce that couldn't be beat. We shared the fried green tomatoes--generous and delicious.
The Colbalt Grille makes a great effort to please the eye as well as the pallet.

Slow, that's how we can describe our whole evening. Had a 7 o'clock reservation and was seated but did not get our drink order until 7:45
Our meal was not served until 830, the waitress said she was sorry there was a large order ahead of us . I think she had a group in the private dining room as well as our table. We rarely saw her. The food was just OK.
I'm going to give this place a rest, the menu has not been changed in the several years that I have been coming here. If you doing not eat beef or fish there are very limited offerings.

The food was okay. Nothing spectacular. My wife and I went for our anniversary, and we weren’t blown away. Everything was seasoned well and tasted good. We got the crème brûlée, while it was good, it was a bit yokey. The server admitted to being short staffed. We probably waiting 5-7 minutes before we got some water and got the server to acknowledge us.

We went out for an impromptu date night and CBG is a go-to when we want a nice evening with wonderful food. Our server Brian recommend the soup on special which was roasted corn and poblano. If they could jar that soup and sell it I would by it for life! We are never disappointed with the quality of our food, the freshness of ingredients or attentiveness of the staff.
