While the view of the Ocean is incredible and the hotel that houses this restaurant is top-notch, I did not have a good experience. While staying at the hotel we attempted to dine here 3 different times and found the hostesses rude to say the least. Especially given there were many empty tables but we were told there was no availability. We did dine there on our last evening, food was fine and a very nice waitress but the hostesses really ruined the experience for us.

Cobalt is becoming our go-to place for special occasions. Outdoor dining was in fine form yesterday as we celebrated a birthday. The staff was terrific, friendly and attentive as always, and our meal was expertly prepared. We always have a wonderful experience at this historic hotel.

 (Tampa)·Dined on March 2, 2017

Dining at the Cobalt was not a good experience. We had guests visiting from Canada and thought they would like being near the ocean.
The first fiasco was the valet parking - there were 3 attendants and no one welcomed us, no one opened the doors for us two ladies. At the end of the evening, the attendant couldn't readily find our car keys and again no one opened the car door.
We checked in at the hostess station and Briana was the hostess - she wasn't very friendly, we had to ask her name and we mentioned we were early could we go to the bar. She said yes and that she would find us when it got closer to our reservation time.
We finished our drinks early and went back to the hostess table and it was a little crowded but we did seated and again the lady was not very friendly.
Our server was the same - they just didn't seem to care. We ordered calamari and it came out barely edible. We saw the food runner start to bring our food out but our waitress never came back to clear our plates so the food was brought back to the heat lamps.
The entire evening was a disappointment and it will be a long time before we go back.

While a hotel restaurant, as locals, we dine at Cobalt often. We love sitting outside overlooking the ocean. Breakfast is wonderful with unusual menu selections and good coffee. My wife and I especially like their breakfast, however, lunch and dinner both offer great fare at a moderate price point. Another option for less expense is their poolside (also oceanside) menu that includes basic burgers and sandwiches.

Cobalt is my new favorite place for Sunday lunch/brunch. Inventive, artfully presented food, a beautiful ocean front setting - indoor and outdoor dining options. Service is attentive, but not intrusive. Looking forward to returning.

Service was great. I went with my 2 yr old daughter and 7 year old son, and our waiter did a great job with them, very engaging & friendly. My daughter had probably the best Mac & Cheese I have ever tasted, and she would agree. My son got a filet that was large for him, but incredibly delicious and prepared perfectly for a 7 year old. I enjoy my lamb dish quickly and we ran out of there before the locals got restless.

Seems like a spot a lot of local divorcees come to flaunt their money and drown their sorrows to a bunch of friends who aren't really listening, but perhaps that was just my immediate surroundings at the time. Although I didn't feel like it was a young family friendly restaurant, they definitely made us feel welcomed and expedited our service as we wanted.

We live near Cobalt and have dined there occasionally over the years, mostly when visiting the spa. The patio is an excellent lunch spot in season since it's on a terrace just above the beach. We have only ever dined there for lunch and only as a couple. It's a nice spot to watch and listen to the waves, hold hands, have a cold drink and forget about the world that begins 100 feet to the west. Food is good. Prices reasonable for the area especially given the beautiful spot.

We love this restaurant and have had dinner there several times. This was our first lunch there and it was excellent. I had the Cobb salad with Mahi. My wife had the flatbread which seems like a pizza with great crust! She loved her lunch. The staff are very efficient and friendly. Sitting outside as we did gave us fabulous views of the ocean and beach. It was a very nice experience.

We've eaten at Cobalt before, and decided to return. This experience was less than satisfactory. The service was extremely slow - it took 45 minutes for our appetizer to arrive. And while the presentation of our main course selections was exquisite, the flavors were far below our expectation. Everyone in our group tried to put a positive spin on it, but we were all 'underwhelmed' by our selections. There was a large group there that evening, and that might explain our less-than-satisfactory experience.

 (Orlando)·Dined on February 8, 2017

All in all it was a good experience that had a rocky start. We were acknowledged that I had a reservation, and when asking if we could be seated outside, were told that the tables needed to be bussed would we mind waiting. I said no problem, and approx 10 min later were called to be seated, only to have the other hostess having already sat someone, ahead of us. when asked if we wanted to wait for another outside table, I wasn't interested in waiting another 1/2 hr. or so for one to clear. Then, being seated inside (of which there was very little patronage at that time --1:30 pm) waited 20 minutes before we were even approached and asked what we wanted to drink. The waitress cut it close, for I was about to get up and walk out. Waitress though, after finally waiting on us, was very attentive. Food was good, but I feel the menu is very limited.

Nicely done Sunday brunch favorites for 4 foodies - the Cobalt Omelette was very delicious, though my other half and I agreed that more bacon, or a more intense bacon-y flavor, would have been good. Potatoes just right. Mimosas lovely and light. Our friends had good things to say about the shrimp and grits and the banana waffles - although he refused to share the banana waffles with her. Comp dessert for my bday - a dense chocolate concoction that was decadently just right. Lovely waterfront location, by 2 pm in February we had lost the sun on the patio and it was a bit chill with the wind, but a sweater did the trick. We would return.

Cobalt is on the beach and has a 4-6 happy hour with drinks and small plates. The full dinners are relatively small but big enough, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. There is full dinner service on the patio overlooking the ocean if its warm enough and there are fire pits outside which is great for dinner or after dinner drinks.

The only negative aspect of our meal was that the kitchen did not know how to sear tuna. After two attempts, my husband ate what was served because the tuna itself was of a very good quality. The restaurant did the right thing and did not charge us for the tuna.

Cobalt has been a favorite restaurant of mine for several years. But my birthday dinner was especially wonderful! We had a table inside over looking the patio and ocean. Our waiter, George, was attentive and very personable, but not at all intrusive. The food was especially delicious. I think Cobalt has a relatively new chef. Amazing! The clam chowder was delicious. My entree was sesame encrusted tuna, so good. My husband had scallops on a bed of risotto which he enjoyed. For dessert, my husband had a very large piece of chocolate cake and I had vanilla ice cream on a brownie with chocolate sauce. It sounds ordinary, but the taste was extraordinary. My dessert was compliments of the restaurant. All wonderful!

We like Cobalt for those special occasions. it's classy. The cuisine is fairly sophisticated. Good seafood. Good specials. We went New Years night, and they were out of filet mignons, but they'd obtained excellent rib eyes for their carnivorous customers. I prefer their seafood dishes or the osso bucco. Good appetizers. I ordered a slice of chocolate cake for the table (party of four). It was sinfully rich, heavy and moist. Reservations suggested on weekends and special holidays.
