You need a reservation! We had one and our brunch was delicious. The food arrived hot and the value was great. The mimosa was made with fresh orange juice. The waffle was the best ever. Coffee was hot and strong. Husband had the American platter that came with scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon and sausage. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. They have valet parking so that makes it easy. Now we will try it for dinner.

Food was good. Service was blah. No one was there to welcome us and sit us. I made a note about our anniversary and they didn’t even acknowledge it. This is just a hotel restaurant. Nothing more.

The atmosphere was quiet, very beautiful, and elegant. Conner did a great job as our server. The presentation of the accouterments on the charcuterie "Hunter" board was layered nicely. My wife had the Peppercorn Crusted Short Ribs which was cooked perfectly. The potatoes burst in your mouth like a freshly roasted marshmallow. I had the "Day Boat Fresh Catch" which was triple-tail. It was probably the best, freshest, and most tasteful piece of fish I have ever had served at a restaurant. The fish, decorated with crispy prosciutto, laying in a bed of lentils was absolutely divine.

Highly recommend and will definitely return when we are in the area again.

Good atmosphere and cocktails, but high prices for average entrées. If you are going to dine here, fish is your best bet. Lamb was exceptionally fatty and chicken was bone dry. Fish, however, was good.

It used to be so good, but now it is mediocre and way overpriced. A small cup of tomato soup was $10. The wine choices are excellent, but there are many better quality restaurants in St. Augustine. We were disappointed.

Ambiance was perfect for date night. Our waiter Brace was a pleasure to meet and chat with. Food was fantastic. We highly recommend splitting salad and a couple of appetizers for a broader experience. A table across from us had some children getting more than restless and they staff politely resolved the situation to the pleasure of us and neighboring tables. Speedy, though, worth it.

the super poor menu only 7 entrees there is no variety. Overly expensive prices for the size of the dishes. Our food was really salty the only thing that is worth it is the desserts. Dinner for 2 adults a child $ 250 that is not worth it

Even though the menu is not expansive, there is something for everyone. The food was expertly prepared and nicely presented. We went on a Monday because it s usually less crowded and a lot of restaurants in St Augustine are closed on Monday. They also have valet parking which they validate.

I love this location and hotel but they no longer seat in the dinning room except brunch!!! Our waiter was poor and slow. He didn’t know the menu at seem to care
I reserved dinner reservations to celebrate my daughters birthday.
I was told they could do a candle and cake for dessert. Our server seemed to care less and
we even mentioned twice we were celebrating a birthday.
A different table got the whole birthday song but not us. All and all we had a good meal but poor service

We had the branzino, calamari and porkbelly followed by the coffee flan. Everything was delicious but the coffee flan was exceptional. The server made great recommendations, Was a little leery when I realized the restaurant was in a hotel, but it was full, and not just with travelers. Would go again.

Great service, great food, good ambiance (would be great if we were in the main dining room but the main dining area was closed). Our server Christina went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations including asking the chef to prepare an off menu item for one of our diners. The chef did and presented it himself. Definitely exceled in service and food.

Costa Brava is a superb fine dining restaurant in The Casa Monica Resort Hotel in Saint Augustine. The cuisine is continental with a Spanish Mediterranean flavor, featuring wonderful selections, great specials, and can accommodate food restrictions/allergies and so forth. To complement your dining, there is a full service bar featuring specialty cocktails and wonderful after dinner drinks, and a great selection of domestic and international wines. The service and staff are splendid, very knowledgeable, accommodating, and friendly. Dress is resort to business casual, there is live music on many occasions. Parking is easy with the hotel valet. I love this restaurant as I am a local resident and dine here often.

The atmosphere is great but the food was not worth the prices. We were also looking forward to having a shrimp entree but they only offer lunch shrimp entrees which we found strange. I ordered the lamb duo but it was over-seasoned and that took away from the distinct lamb flavor. We would not dine there again.

Food was terrible, fish overcooked, chicken dry. Little flavor or salt. Cocktails were great. Service was excellent and atmosphere nice.

Would go back for a blood orange margarita but avoid the food.
