A perfect choice for our wedding anniversary! I had the halibut, my wife had the lamb chops. Absolutely delicious food. Wonderful atmosphere. Can't wait to go back! Thanks for a perfect evening!
Our 2 year wedding anniversary. Great place! Charming atmosphere in an old historic hotel.
The food and service was outstanding! We would absolutely recommend this restaurant!! We look forward to our next dining experience.
We go every year for our anniversary. Even with the COVID 19 restrictions, the experience was excellent. I would recommend them now especially due this moment in time. Our 20th-anniversary dinner was just great, thank you!
My wife is Vegan and has a gluten allergy. Martin was able to ask the Chef to do a great fish for her. My beef tenderloin was perfectly cooked.
The food was overpriced and under produced.
Costa Brava is emerging as an excellent fine dining restaurant as it once was some 15 years ago or so, before Marriott Hotels took over the Casa Monica Hotel. This restaurant has a very nice selection of Continental Cuisine based on the Spanish coast, Costa Brava of Spain. The restaurant has a great wine selection, full bar, and attentive, friendly, and very knowledgeable & accommodating service.
Excellent service, food, and drinks... I truly appreciated the attention to detail, including the seriousness of social distancing and taking safety precautions, while at the same time providing an enjoyable atmosphere.
Wonderful experience. Best hell of a butt ever!!!
We had such an amazing time. The server was so personable and attentive. The food was delightfully delicious! Highly recommend.
Great drinks and great food. Service was great wonderful server.
We enjoyed everything immensely from the appetizers through to the dessert! Even though Covid affected the amount of people at the restaurant we saw no difference in the quality of food nor the wait staff, in fact, we felt we got extra attention from the staff cuz they were slower than normal and it led to some excellent conversations. The food was tasteful, colorful, well presented and as I feel with any review, we will 100% be back again in the future!
We loved this restaurant before they changed it a few years back. It has lost its old world charm. However, our server has been Martin for many years. He’s the reason we choose to dine there Time and again. We understand the limited menu due to Covid 19 but we think it is just a bit too limited. Let’s hope things can get back to a bit of what it was.
Fantastic food and service. The ambience, however kind of sucked. Actually it sucked big time but it was no fault of the hotel. It's just the way things are in this COVID-19 era. Would we eat there again? Absolutely!
Extremely fancy and beautiful place. The decoration is out of this world, it made me feel I was in an art museum. The food and service were also outstanding and prices were reasonable for the quality, beauty and convenient location of this place.
The waiters and waitresses were very friendly. Given the Covid-19 situation, the seating was more in the bar area but still very nice. The food was absolutely amazing. The Halibut is something everyone must try! I’d recommend the Nutella lava cake for dessert. Everyone should try this beautiful place!
Very enjoyable. Cocktails and food delicious.
The ambiance was very elegant. The service was on point. The food was absolutely delicious!
This restaurant needs a face lift
I made a reservation for fathers day breakfast. We were seated in the bar rather than the dining area, it was so dark i could barely read the menu. The service was very slow from start to finish. Our glasses smelled like fish water, the eggs Benedict smelled and tasted like rancid pork. My husband asked for ham in his omelet which never came but we were charged for. At no point could we complain since the server dropped the food off and never returned. Overall a very poor experience, overpriced and sanitary concerns.
We booked a reservation. Got there, and the door was locked. Looked in the window and it was empty. Tried calling the restaurant and it kept ringing and ringing. No one at the hotel was helpful. I have no idea what happened that night.
We have been here on a few occasions when it was the place to go for a special fine dining experience. Let's put it this way, compared to before, we were overdressed this time as other diners were in shorts and jeans. Average food, high prices. It needs to find its way back to former times when the name alone made you anticipate an above average celebration.
Great food and service. I will definitely be coming back.
We celebrated a birthday and the dinner was delicious. Will definitely recommend!
The restaurant is beautiful & the service was excellent. I ordered pancakes. They were perfectly prepared. However, $12 for 3 med-sized pancakes was a ridiculous price. I would have been embarrassed to serve those 3 single pancakes on a full-sized plate.
Two employees to wait on tables (they were working their tales off). $15 a drink. Rude bartender. small small portions. Dessert was literally a sample size.
This restaurant has an identity problem. Their website describes themselves as “Refined Asian & Middle Eastern cuisine in a romantic Moorish setting at the Casa Monica Hotel.” The category of cuisine on all the reviews is Mediterranean. And the ACTUAL menu was your basic run-of-the-mill chicken, steak, and bacon cheeseburger.
There is nothing refined, Asian, or Middle Eastern (or Mediterranean) about this place. To their credit, seasoning was good and I would consider going there if other run-of-the-mill restaurants like Fridays or Applebee’s were the alternatives.
Five-star dining experience within the historic Casa Monica. Food, service & ambience were outstanding. We started with fancy Martinis & heirloom tomato salad & each ended with filet mignon. The cuts were so juicy & tender that they barely required chewing! Emerging from quarantine, we appreciated the special attention of the bartenders & restaurant manager. Memorable romantic first night in St. Augustine. So grateful they opened for Memorial Day weekend.
Costa Brava has become one of our hometown favorites. Perhaps due to the current virus scare, it was quieter than usual for a Saturday night. That made it even more special for me and my wife. As always, the food was exquisite, the service timely and professional and the ambiance magical. We also like their very professional valet parking. We shall return--soon!
Superb meal...salmon for both me and my wife. Chowder to start. French bread with olive oil for the table. Every bite was excellent. Very high marks to the kitchen staff and to the server for providing a highly enjoyable evening.
Loved the bottomless Mimosas! Service was a little slow, and it was not busy, but food was very good.
I really enjoyed my experience, the decor, space and staff, made us comfortable, the dining experience was fantastic the portions were excellent but I felt it a little over priced, examples a $4 for either Toast or English muffin. That’s is why I graded it a 4 on the value.
I highly recommend the Hunters Platter for an appetizer. It was plenty for the 4 of us and had a great assortment of cheese, olives, chorizo, etc. Our dinners were really delicious too!
We loved our meal ...only complaint is your tag line online is tapas and you offer very few BUT what we had was excellent
We were disappointed that the Quilt wine on your list was not available
Food was good but the portions were small. Prices were not terrible and the place was nice.
Five stars from start to finish. Our server was excellent - prompt / efficient without interrupting our meal. Pretty good wine selection...we opted for a bottle of our favorite wine - Sancerre. Calamari was excellent, salmon was good, and my husband’s scallops were divine (perfectly cooked and like butter)! Can’t wait to return!
We had an amazing time unfortunately the experience that we had in the bar for pre-drinks was very disappointing service wise. We waited for a very long time to be serviced and then to get our bottle of wine along with checking out took a very long time.
The meal in the restaurant was absolutely amazing!
When we were first seated my husband was near a busy door to a private party. We requested to be moved. Marcus helped us find a much better table. We appreciated his prompt attention. Also our waitress was very professional and attentive. We will return.
Great night. Beet salad was great but the dressing need some kick to it was a little bland. Steak and lobster was fantastic. Sea bass was cooked perfectly and the beet purée was good but would have preferred a different purée on the fish. The seafood cocktail and the risotto were fantastic. The seafood chowder was yummy. Would eat there again. Fantastic service.
