    Wonderful experience -Al fresco dining with the ocean waves breaking just off the patio. From the host greeting to the wait staff-very attentive and informative. The seafood tower was stuffed with shrimp oysters lobster and crab legs. The only thing off was the tinned oysters. Didn’t quite make the vibe. The porterhouse steak was excellent and well prepared. Wonderful evening.

    The hanger steak was extremely disappointing. It was undercooked, over seasoned and chewy. When we express our disappointment to the server, she discussed it with the manager, and we were offered a complementary dessert which was a delicious Keylime pie. Call Donato the cocktails were also extremely disappointing, especially at $16 each. Martini was not chilled nearly enough.

    Hostess tried to seat us at a dirty table. Crumbs and food all over the floor under multiple seats. Chef could only offer asparagus or broccoli side when told about an allergy to onions. Clearly they have no idea how to use herbs or create anything that isn’t already prepared. Never had that experience anywhere else I have travelled. Don’t waste your time or money here. So many good restaurants in Vero but not this one. The view of the ocean is all Cobalt can offer you. Eat somewhere else!

    Always enjoy Cobalt , especially to celebrate a friends birthday. Our outdoor table was great, as was service , but the food was not what We have come to expect . It was a cool day and Tomato soup with mini grill cheese sounded perfect . Grilled cheese was the size of a crouton and the taste of soup was poor . Drinks are always good . Sandwich was ok but everything was cold . Including truffle fries ( which are our favorite) not on this visit . Hope it improves

    the patio is a delight to sit on. ambiance is romantic from the sound of waves in the background, lights wrapped around trees and a fire pit close by. the team members were attentive and kind. the food was very tasty. it is a little pricey yet it is a delightful treat every now and again.

    Lobster was overpriced and dry. No sides came with lobster. Octopus was good however, plate had more fingerling potatoes than octopus. Server was nice, but not as attentive as expected from Cobalt. Prior to being seated outside, the group had a drink in the bar. The bartender somewhat ignored us and when we asked for ice on the side, two of us received a glass with two ice cubes and no spoon to scoop out the ice when needed. All in all, Cobalt is a lovely place to dine, but it seems to have declined somewhat in service.

    We enjoyed a dinner experience with friends. Our wait staff and our was attentive but not overbearing. The food came out timely and our orders were correct. The steaks were done perfectly. The sides were a bit overdone or maybe sat under the heat lamp too long. We never felt rushed but our table was near a door that kept being opened because of service to the outdoor tables. Ask for a table away from the door. Very nice restaurant to eat at in Vero Beach.

    Best meal we had in Vero Beach during our visit. Restaurant is pretty inside only comment would be to change chair cushions since we were sinking into almost under the table. Portions are good (not huge like other places - for us a good thing) and food was very flavorful. Plus we were lucky to be there at the first Friday of the month and enjoyed a DJ playing at the bar.

    Ambience and service were wonderful . We all felt portions were small and as the host for the evening , it was a little embarrassing. The salmon should have been called a goldfish because that’s how small it was- came on the large dinner plate with a small beaker of sauce and a piece of grilled lemon - it looked ridiculous on the large plate . I had heard very good things about this restaurant but if we were to return, it would only be for happy hour before dusk and on the patio to enjoy the view

    I have a tradition of taking one grandson at a time out for Lunch with Grandma and I took my oldest grandson (24) to Cobalt yesterday. It was wonderful ! We both raved about the view and the service, the food and the table location outside at the end and close to the beach was excellent. My grandson loved his pulled rib sandwich and I enjoyed my turkey club. We will certainly return. Thanks for a great afternoon. We hated to leave the view of the beautiful turquoise ocean.

    We went for brunch on New Year's day, which is also my birthday. Valet parking was free and upon arriving at the restaurant we were greeted promptly and the reservation and birthday acknowledged. We were seated outdoors as requested; our table was in the warm to hot sun at first despite the umbrella, but eventually the sun moved and it became comfortable. The dining terrace is attractive and the ocean view is breathtaking. There was music coming in from the other restaurant but the volume was not loud. I found the service very good, attentive without hovering. We were immediately brought menus and water, drink orders taken a view minutes later, a short wait for drinks and food orders, and a reasonable wait for food. The brunch menu does not have a huge selection but there is a decent variety of options. I had eggs benedict which were perfectly prepared; my companion had a french dip sandwich which looked good also. The prices were not bad considering the atmosphere of the place and quality of the service and food. It took a little prompting from my companion to get a birthday dessert but they brought out a nice slice of chocolate ganache cake with Happy Birthday written in icing on the plate. Overall it was a very positive experience and I would happily return.
