    We came here for my birthday. Stayed at the hotel. Our reservation was for 7, but we were able to get in early. Food was delicious! My fiancé and I shared the shrimp appetizer- so good. I had tile fish was was prepared with risotto, mild but flavorful. My fiancé had the filet- perfectly cooked. Karen waited on us, she was wonderful!! Highly recommend!

    Disappointing at best. It was difficult getting a reservation at the time we wanted and when we showed up the restaurant was practically empty. There were kids running around like it was a fast food restaurant. The food was fair but not worth the price they charge.

    Martin served us as he has for years. He guided us with the menu and the reduced wine list (what happened?). Ambiance was elegant (few patrons this night); valet parking makes for an easy approach and exit. Try the Wellington made with gourmet mushrooms; wonderful. The market fish was great as was the decadent banana flambé bread dessert. We will return!

    The service was excellent, second to none, the food was wonderful but the portion was not worth the price, my desert was larger than the steak that I had ordered and even the desert was lacking as I had ordered "banana foster"and only received a quarter of a banana with a very small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a huge slice of bread pudding. We won't return there in the future.

    Came for our anniversary, the place felt very stuffy. Menu had potential and sounded so great. All prices were so high. Way more the the food was worth. Came for wedding anniversary made. Note in reservation and nothing was said at all while we were there. Service was good though, I give them that.

    Went to Costa Brava on a Saturday night before Christmas for a special dinner during Nights of Lights. We were 4 adults and 2 children and we spent $350+. Upon arrival to the hotel we were told by the Marriott Hotel that we could not Valet park and we were left to fend for ourselves to find parking out in the cold. Upon seating we were told the restaurant could not provide a side dish of pasta or rice. We ordered the House Special Paella which was over cooked and was not a very good Paella. For $98 we were very disappointed. Overall it was a miserable experience, and I would not recommend eating at Costa Brava. The restaurant used to be very good, as we have gone there every year for the last ten years for special occasions and to enjoy Nights of Lights. However, this year will be the last year, as Costa Brava is permanently removed from our go to list for a nice enjoyable dinner in St Augustine.

    We were there last night December 23 and we hadn’t been back at the Cassa Monica hotel since we had a wedding reception there in 2015. The food was excellent and all the guests loved it. Last night I had the special which was the red snapper and my husband had the prime fillet We loved it BUT Very very small portions, and extremely high prices!!! However it was quiet, comfortable, service was outstanding had a great waitress also has a very limited menu. Has a lot of Spanish flavorings and seasonings however they will eliminate some stuff and substitute something else if you don’t want anything spicy.

    We were sat in the bar area where it was naturally very noisy. The piano player was amazing. The food was okay. My wife got the duck and I got a filet. Both were just okay. I would have expected much better quality at this price point.

    Really underwhelmed by our experience. We dined here during our first night of our trip because it was located in our hotel. My kids chicken tenders were the best part of the entire meal. Our wagu meatballs and calamari came out cold, my grouper was good but again, cold. My husbands duck was just okay. We were rushed through our meal and I don't know why we ordered dessert after the subpar dinner, but that was also underwhelming (banana fosters bread pudding). My husband had a grey goose martini and I had a French martini, our bill before tip was almost $250. I may not have been so picky on the food and service had we paid half that, but at $25 a pop for a cocktail and a $60 duck entree I expect the food to be hot and service to be according to price. I'm hoping the rest of our trip isn't such a let down. I should also add that this was an early Thursday night dinner and maybe four other parties, so no excuse for the subpar service and food.

    Food was great. Service as great. Price high but not too high. The restaurant was basically in a hotel lobby so very noisy and quite cold. Menu was short, creative and very tasty! Not the ambiance you would want for any intimacy or holding hands with your sweetheart across the table.

    Service was amiable but otherwise unremarkable. Left feeling like i paid way too much for what i got and nothing stood out . The Ceviche was rubbery , the duck was not well balanced and tasted like one spice . The house paella was ok, but the calamari within it was rock hard over cooked . The hotel was packed and the bar was so noisy that it negatively impacted the vibe in the dining room. 2 sangria 1 sazerac ceviche meatballs duck breast house paella $195 bucks pre tip

    Had the old fashion and the calamari, they we’re really good. I was a bit disappointed on the menu, I was really looking forward for the crab and lobster risotto but was no longer on the menu. Ambiance was a bit too dark and dingy in my opinion. Our server was nice but was not really too helpful with explaining the menu or suggesting other dishes especially when I mentioned about the risotto. I was just told that it was no longer on the menu and didn’t provide some sort of possible alternative. We planned on having dinner at the restaurant to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday but was a bit disappointed and decided to just pay for the drinks and appetizer. We decided to have dinner elsewhere.
