Visited for the Tuesday burger special. My wife and I both ordered the bleu cheese burger. Both order medium. My burger was cooked well. My wife's burger was closer to medium rare the medium. The fries were very good. Served hot. I was pleased with my burger. Our waitress was excellent!

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.

Food and service was good, but expensive. There isn't much privacy at tables, and it's fairly noisy.

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.

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.
