We enjoyed a very nice meal- my wife commented that the calamari was, perhaps, the best preparation sha had ever tasted. My meals was presented beautifully and tasted delicious.

Parking the car was easy, and it was our 45th Anniversary and we were looking forward to our arrival. We checked in with the front desk and were immediately met with a friendly and warm smile and escorted to our table. The staff were all dressed appropriately, restaurant was very nice and our waiter introduced himself as Richard and our evening began in a great setting. It was very nice.

The negative side should only be taken in a positive vein. It was a rainy evening and my only draw back was to sit in a nice room that had no dress code. People in Blue Jeans, shorts and inappropriate dress for a restaurant did had draw backs. My only regret and it was a deterring factor for the costs incurred.

If costs are to be as they are your going to need a dress code. I often go to your Bohemian restaurant in the Orlando area for Sunday Brunch. Yes its expensive but to look around and see everyone dressed is part of the restaurant experience. This doesn't happen and while so much was right the dress code was far to relaxed for weekly attendance by us. You can make a difference and you should. Think about what others saw and its not just me. You need to keep your repeat customers. Just my opinion.

Overall decent place, but server disappeared for 40 minutes with no explanation. All other servers were coming by tables regularly. Food is good, but definitely not memorable and not the best value. I recommend Ice Plant if you haven’t been there yet.

Outstanding food with great small plates and shareable options. Richard, our waiter, was terrific. He let us eat at a nice leisurely pace. We appreciated getting regular ice with our drinks (not the 1 ice cube at extra fee!) and our wine was excellent too. We recommend Costa Brava, a secret hidden gem in the Casa Monica Hotel.

This restaurant, and the hotel that it is in, the Casa Monica, is a Saint Augustine gem. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner, the charcuterie board was amazing!

My food came out with tomato Which I’m highly allergic to. No mention anywhere on the menu of tomato being in the dish. Nor has it been the last five times I’ve ordered the same dish. The food had to be redone at 30 min additional wait. My husband ate alone while I sat starving. A discount at least would’ve been nice. At 70$ food should be served properly at the same time.

Had not been there in some time but the Marriott influence is clear. I would probably not recommend since it is not even close to what the old 95 Cordova (before Marriott) was like. It Had much better food selection and presentation, and a very pleasurable Ambiance. The place now looks like any other 4 or5 Star Hotel, no longer anything special.

We truly enjoyed our time at Costa Brava. The room is off the lobby of the Casa Monica hotel and is beautifully decorated in a Spanish motif. The service was excellent. We asked for some significant changes to one of the dishes we ordered and they were done without any difficulties at all. My steak was perfectly cooked but the sauce was under flavored. My husband loved his scallops. Prices were reasonable for the location.

Delightful experience following daughters dance show. Food was delish. I wish the quantity of vegetables was consistent. Sometimes the menu items are very generous and other times lacking. The taste was a 10 so we will continue being regulars:)))

The dining experience was spoiled by the policy that the restaurant seems to have regarding the check for the meal. We were a couple, celebrating Mother's Day, and enjoyed the meal and service. However, when we received the check, I noticed that a gratuity had been added to the check - the server never mentioned that fact, and it's possible that I would have added another gratuity and not been aware of the double payment. I understand that adding gratuity to a check is common when there are six or more guests, but have never seen it for a couple. And, certainly the dining guests should be apprised of the policy. It may have been in small print on the menu, but that is not enough notice as we look quickly at the menu, select a meal and enjoy conversation. We don't study the menu for fine print. Very disappointed!

I am currently very grateful that Costa Brava exists. I’m on a diet that allows very little. Everything is fresh, so modifications can be made. My husband I had the duck this evening and it was very good. I was sad to see the sea bass off the menu but glad there was a replacement
