This was a last minute decision to go to diner with a few friends. We picked Colbolt because of its local and the fact that we hadn't been there for diner. Excellent choice. Will definitely go again. Maybe try lunch next time.

I've been a longtime customer of Cobalt Grille, and every meal there continues to exceed my expectations. We went in a large group for a birthday this past Saturday - food was delicious, service was great. The owners even came by to check on us. They really care about delivering a fantastic dining experience. See y'all soon!

We had not been here in a couple years and the atmosphere was nice like we remembered. The food was good and we would certainly enjoy trying other dishes. The turn off was our waitress. She was very aloof and didn't really seem to be to interested in giving us any kind of decent service. She did spend a lot of time with other patrons and even sat down at one of the tables to chat. When she came to our table the questions were short and the time spent to assist was bare necessity. We no we aren't a regular, but aren't eager to become one if that is what is required. When we go out we just want good food for the cost, decent variety and reasonable service. Don't think we will rush back.

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.

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.
