    The concept of Tapas is good but the price for what you get is not. Even though the restaurant was relatively empty when we arrived, instead of a leisurely dinner, I felt rushed with everything being brought out at the same time which forced items to get cold. The food was only mediocre. The staff was friendly and attentive. The bar was busy and loud which carried over into to restuarant.

    While I understand times are tough for restaurants, my experience on Sunday for brunch was not my most memorable. We were seated on time however our waiter took over 20 min to bring us menus. We finally ordered drinks then our food. My partner food was ok however mine was cold and the eggs were old. We waited so long for the waiter to return that my partner had finished her food, waited and finally walked around to find a manager. The manager was exceptional. The waiter finally came back over well after my food had been re-made. I will return however I pray the next experience will be much better.

    Service and food were impeccable. Had the Duo di Manzo and it’s literally the best meal I’ve had at least this year. I’ll be thinking about it for a while. Brandon was our waiter, he and the busers were fantastic. Very professuon. What o expect for a $200 meal. Well worth it. O

    Alec was my server and Phil was the Manager/Host. Both were excellent. I mentioned to Phil before I was seated they I was planning on ordering a glass of The Kessler Cabernet Sauvignon…and before I had decided what to order the Kessler Wine was placed in front of me! I ordered the Hunter’s Board which was one of the best ever. It had a variety of cheeses, meats, olives, nuts, and a French Baguette. I am planning on returning this evening and ordering the same. Alec was attentive without being overbearing…and checked in on me periodically. Thank-you for a great dining experience.

    We thought that Alec, our server was very good and very attentive. We both had the snapper dinner special, which was very good. The wedge salad had an interesting dressing with a nice kick. The calamari was a little disappointing. It seemed like it may have cooked just a tad too long. We did think the restaurant was a little expensive compared to other places we dined while in St. Augustine. All in all, a pretty good evening.

    My birthday was exceptional because of this dining experience. That staff was so kind and caring, the food (I kid you not) THEE BEST I’ve ever had. Every single detail and bite was 10/10. It was my first time in St. Augustine and I will be sure to come back just for this dinner. The chefs should be praised for their attention to detail in each item. I had the grouper (catch of the day) and my husband had mussels and the duck with millets…YUM. Tomato bisque was phenomenal and added to my list of things I didn’t know in needed. The Birthday dessert was nothing less than a treat but the true icing on the cake was the staff. Elegant decor and very comfortable seats. I didn’t want to leave. So good, can’t wait to go back!

    Costa Brava is a wonderful fine dining restaurant in the Casa Monica Hotel and Resort. The cuisine is Spanish Mediterranean and features both tapas and full course dining options complemented by salads and desserts. They also feature a nice wine list and a full service bar, highlighted by superb after dinner drinks and cognacs to be enjoyed with the atmosphere and piano music. The service is friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable; the chefs are very creative and can meet any dietary needs or restrictions. Parking is on-site by valet. I love going to Costa Brava and highly recommend it.

    The best thing was the PIANIST!! The food was just - so sorry to say this - NOT good… we had the cauliflower steak (really yucky, sorry, never saw anything like that, didn’t look like cauliflower or a steak) (about $37) and the “catch of the day” (way over cooked, orzo pasta was full of grease and overdone, etc.) (about $55) - two salads ($15 each), those were OK. We weren’t looking for a discount, but as we were settling up, we just mention the problems to the waitress so she could tell the chef to kind of be a little more attentive. They did nonetheless offer us a 15% discount, which was a nice concession, it was a birthday meal for my husband‘s 70th and just disappointing. But what was amazing is that there is an incredible art gallery in this hotel connected to a lovely jewelry store, and we spent a lot of time in both, that made us forget about the restaurant! So the restaurant led us there. Wouldn’t eat there again. Ambience was nice, piano player was great, hostess waitress both very good. Just need to remind the chefs that oil and salt and heat alone do not maketh the meal!

    We made reservations for dinner for our 14th wedding anniversary. We arrived about 15 minutes early, but we did not have to wait to be seated. From the hostess to our waitress to the management, the service was exquisite. The food was fresh, local, and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and we will definitely be back!

    The ambience was great being inside the Costa Monica hotel. The food was just so bland. The pan con tomate was like cutting into a brick. The patatas had absolutely no seasoning and the Caesar salad was served with the stems. It just seemed like very little effort was put into making the food appetizing.

    Checked in found our room key would not work, staff came to let us in and they checked us into to wrong room we reserved a king room a month in advance so you would think it would be right. Then our room phone would not work and they never gave us any paperwork for room service etc. we thought the info was in the room. Then lastly the morning of we woke up to loud banging from above our room for 30 minutes at 7:15 am very overpriced would not recommend. The building is beautiful. We also reserved a late lunch at 3 to find out that they only offered hand held food and would not serve anything else till after 5:00

    Reservation was for Fathers Day brunch, our server was barely polite, didn’t know the menu, was impatient because we asked questions about the items on the menus and just behaved as if it was an inconvenience to wait on our table. I ordered a crab Benedict and it was not edible. The crab was not lump as described but brown pieces that appeared to be what they cleaned out of the shell. My husband’s and our son’s meals were barely warm. Our entree’s were served by kitchen wait staff and our server never came back to the table to ask how everything was. When she finally did show up to clear the plates, she did not ask why I didn’t eat my meal. She never offered refills on our beverages. Overall it was the worst Father’s day experience my husband ever had and the worst meals. Definitely not worth what we payed.
