First time going there with my niece and her boyfriend. The food was amazing and the ambiance really cool! The service and the lady who cared for us was truly a great experience. The bourbon selection was the icing on the cake! I am really sad that St. Louis County Executive has decided to close Cobalt and other restaurants. Wrong message to single out one small business over large chains!

We loved everything about it. The featured drinks we tried were top notch. The bartender was an absolute pleasure. We had the sea bass and duck fat burger and both were amazing. We really enjoyed how the chef came around and check to see how everything was

I wanted to introduce some friends to my new favorite restaurant. They loved it! We all had something different and we were all very pleased with our meals. The service, as usual, was excellent. All of the employees are so kind. I will continue to bring more people to this one-of-a-kind place!

Having worked in the restaurant industry in Chicago and standards are pretty high. The special I had was the lump crab stuffed trout that was exceptional. Our server was knowledgeable and the artfully crafted cocktails she recommended were perfect. We will defiantly be back!

We really enjoyed everything about our visit to Cobalt Smoke & Sea. The service was attentive, the food was delicious, the restrooms were clean. Couldn't ask for much more. We sat on the patio, it was a cool night with quite a breeze but there was plenty of shelter from the wind and heaters set up so it was very comfortable. We will definitely be back for more meals there!

Everything was wonderful at the restaurant. The only complaint I have is that the noise level was a bit high. I am concerned that when COVID restrictions end, it may be quite unpleasant. But this factor may not be an issue for most people.

Dinner was ok, but not spectacular for the price, some of the drinks we tried where amazing, some tasted like cold medicine. Our waitress was a bit rude to my sister. Not sure I will be back for the cost and the level of service.

I just have to say if you haven’t been to Cobalt Smoke & Sea in Creve Coeur, Go!
My husband and I haven’t been on a date since February!
We desperately needed a date night even if it was just dinner, to relax and have an adult conversation with each other, without our crazy toddler.
We were driving around and decided on Cobalt just because it’s right across from our house and they had live music.
Gurlllll, we had grown people meal.
The crop top drink, I give it 2 snaps and a twist!
The beef ribeye...oOoooOoo MmmMmm GggGggg...I needed private reflection time with this beef.
We sat outside, enjoyed live music, weren’t on our phones, food and drinks were you can tell they took the time to craft these with magic, experience, knowledge, and love.
They are follow the new covid rules.
I wish we could afford to go there once a month with how close it is to our house and how amazing it was.

What a delightful surprise to find this shiny gem of a place in a Creve Coeur strip mall! The ambiance was perfect, a striking dark blue wall with fun, funky trees lit with tinkling lights(my fave), fun paintings and overall joyful atmosphere with friendly staff. The owner Bernadette formerly of woodsmoke BBQ and Windowsills Pies was a lovely hostess! The food was amazing ! Hubby had fried skatewing in a fun play on a childhood school lunch offering which was fantastically crunchy and flAvorful. I had a perfectly cooked sea bass over bacon and butternut squash risotto. But to be honest, the gooey butter cake bread pudding stole the show. The chef did a great job with everything but we knew he was the real deal when he burned the heck out of his hand making our bread pudding! Thanks for your commitment Chef! Will be back!

Had drinks and appetizers but did not have dinner. Drinks were fantastic, but a bit overpriced. Had the pork belly appetizer, which was inedible for me. Friend seemed to be able to tolerate it. Quite possibly just ordered something I (personally) didn't like, and might give it another shot.

Service was not the best l was there for my wife’s birthday with no acknowledgment. My wife’s dinner was very good. My scallops came and the gnocchi was way under cooked like eating mush. I told the waitress and she said she would discuss with chef. I do not think she ever mentioned anything as he made multiple trips to 2 tables discussing their meals. Also little if any lobster or clams even noticed in my meal. Again not even a happy birthday thank you for coming in.

When I made the reservation I indicated it was a special event. 25th wedding anniversary. We were seated at the end of a row of tables next to a high traffic area. This distracted from what could have been an exceptional evening. Foor was very good.

I really wanted to like this place and our server was very nice but the entire experience lacked a little something. From the ambience to the food quality. I feel they are really trying but just don't quite have it figured out yet.

This was our first time dining at Cobalt and it won’t be our last! The food was DELICIOUS and very reasonably priced. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the live entertainment on a Saturday evening. They had just rolled out the fall menu and it had very unique but mouth watering flavors. The scallops and burnt ends were to die for!
