Nice place but our friend ordered a pins colada and the waiter said it was too busy to get one.He didn't know how to do a mobile gift card when it was time to pay.I had to go inside with him to do it.We asked if we could move inside because it was too chilly and he said I don't know you will have to ask the person that seated us.It was a 6 pm reservation on a Friday and it wasn't busy at all.Food was good but for a 38 dollar entree you really should get a dinner salad included.

Cobalt was once again a very nice place to have an evening meal, and the service was excellent. The Swordfish has always been a favorite of mine, and the restaurant has a very comfortable atmosphere. A great place to relax and watch the waves roll onto the beach at night with that special someone.

Our meal was fantastic and the setting is wonderful. When we had a slight issue with our dessert, the manager immediately resolved the problem, came back several times to check on us, and also took the item off our bill without us asking. Everyone was very friendly and attentive and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Met friends for lunch - the restaurant was beautiful as was the view. We sat outside and toward the end it started to rain and they accommodated our dessert inside without any issue at all. All the staff from the parking attendant at the hotel to the restaurant staff was friendly & helpful. Lunch menu had a nice variety and the food was very good. Would love to return for a dinner sometime.

First, the food was delicious and well made. But the dining room was not so pleasant. Very dark, wood tables are sort of shabby, no place mats or table clothes, water stains on silverware, a kind of ponderous decor, and noisy. Plus the chairs, which are club chairs with saggy leather seats, were very low compared to table tops. When we finally said something to our server, he brought over two big pillows to sit on, which helped a bit. He admitted the chairs were old and saggy. Server was a nice, not real smooth, but did okay, and was trying hard. Sorry to say, other restaurants similarly priced were more pleasant experiences. Can’t imagine having to eat in that dining room every meal if staying there.

This was our first visit for brunch and we thought it was really excellent. We also had a wonderful young lady as our server (and sadly, I've forgotten her name). The kitchen did burn one diner's order and so everyone else was almost finished by the time she got her meal. I did think they should have offered her SOMETHING to eat while the rest of us chowed down on a tasty brunch. (note: we did offer to share our meals) but otherwise it was a very fine outing.

We brought a houseguest with us for brunch at the bar on St. Patrick’s Day and our favorite bartender Alexis was on duty that day. As always she was a delight and took excellent care of us. We had a lovely afternoon and will absolutely return to see her again!

Excellent service, solid vegetarian appetizers, and nice view of the ocean from the second floor dining room. Reservation does not guarantee a table outdoors. We had a reservation (with a request to dine outside) but were told it would be an additional 45 min wait. Zucchini rollatini, baby kale salad and garlic mashed were delicious! Tamale and mixed green salad were also good. Probably one of the best date night options with a water view in Vero Beach. It’s attached to the Kimpton Hotel with valet parking.

We were happy to see that Alexis was behind the bar even though we had lunch on the terrace. It was nice to see her. The only thing that prevented this from being a full 5-star review was that no matter how clearly my husband asked for a thick slice of onion to go with his burger, it still came out with a a few razor thin rings. When he asked again for a THICK SLICE of onion, a few more razor thin rings came out. We have decided that the only way to get a good onion slice is to bring it in a plastic bag from home next time! Our server was mortified that the kitchen didn’t do as she had asked...twice! It was not her fault and she was delightful. My Cobb salad was excellent and our friend’s lobster roll was also excellent.

Service was average, took awhile for someone to acknowledge us after we were sat at our table. Server was a little too casual for me. I tried to modify my reservation 2 hours prior to sitting and the hostess said she did not have time to check the messages yet...really. As in the past, zero management presence. Food was okay but nothing special. Received food I did not asked for and was charged. The server never gave me a chance to asked about the bill when it slipped it on the table and ran away both times.

At New Year's we waited 50 minutes for iunch and then the chicken "had a problem" so the caeser
salad had no chicken.

Two weeks ago at lunch, we waited 40 minutes and then the food order was someone's elses so we had
to take a hamburger to go.

Yesterday, I had a New York Art Dealer for lunch and I had to clean the chair of cheese crumbs before
sitting down.

I always have a wonderful experience at Cobalt. We sat on the ocenside patio and it was beautiful! The noise level was not to loud and was mainly the ocean surf on the beach which made the experience that much more splendid. The tamale app was awesome and the Pompano entree was very tasty. I have been coming to Cobalt for over 5 years and it only gets better. Our server Ashley was the best! Thank you for an incredible evening.

We always love the evening ambience of Cobalt’s oceanside terrace with its gas torches and blazing fire pits. Weather permitting, we also prefer to drink and dine on the terrace because it is much, much quieter and more comfortable than the indoor dining room, which they keep quite cool. However, this night something was “off” with both the kitchen and staff. From placement of our dinner order, some 40 minutes passed before our salad and soup arrived for the first course. Our entrees arrived later. They were good, but not special in terms of presentation or quality. Attention from the wait staff was sporadic. Overall, we’ve had better experiences when dining there previously.

I would like to rate my experience higher but it really fell below expectations this time. Service was very slow, the pompano was over cooked to the point of leather and the mashed potatoes were the consistency of a sauce. The dark chocolate mousse was as thick as wax and had no flavor at all. However, my companions enjoyed their salmon and grouper.

Hmm. The good: lovely spot, on the beach, solid menu, decent wine selection. The bad: service was subpar. Greeted fairly quickly by server, ordered our wines, and promptly waited at least 10 minutes on slow lunch day--over half the tables were empty and being waited on by at least three other servers. Wine finally came and we placed our order for two easy to make selections of oysters on the half shell and tuna tartare. We also asked for lemon. Twenty minutes later, we flagged down another server for the lemon, and another five minutes later a bus person brought us our food. The ice upon which the oysters sat was 2/3 melted, and the pita crisps for the tartare were chewy indicating these had been sitting for a time. We would have liked another glass of wine, but by the time our server came back, we were nearly finished with our meal. Took us a good 10 minutes to get check and pay, too. So, while we enjoyed the location and the food was actually freshly made, the service was notably poor. Would still recommend as long as your server was good.
