    I had high hopes as it’s inside the Kimpton. Winston (Server) was mostly attentive throughout brunch. My biggest complain is I was served raw chicken. With a place who has to keep a high image how can you serve raw chicken? A big disappointment and an eye opener before returning for a birthday dinner. I think we will be dinning elsewhere.

    Way overpriced! Come on $72 for a meal with no sides? Each side is $15. I am a local and loved staying and enjoying this establishment but it has been priced out of my league! We Ended up ordering a $27 cheese platter for four people. When we asked for additional bread or crackers because it only came with four pieces it was like “let me see what I can do”…and brought us two pieces of bread….Really… if you can’t get a cheese board right why would I spend $185 on a meal? sad to see increase in prices because the locals that keep you in business off season.

    CobaltResponded 3 days agoGood Afternoon! As our menus have evolved, we are priced in line with our competition and other steakhouses in the area. We apologize that you feel that the prices are not in line, but we are confident in the quality of the food and service.

    Absolutely disgusting! Waited 2 hours for iced cold food. I asked for no butter and my food was covered in it. This was an $800 dinner that was horrible. The manager who was dressed in as don johnson has no answers and offered no explanation. Will never go back! Sick of trying to make this place work.

    My sister and I brought my dad to Cobalt for brunch on Father’s Day. This was his first Father’s Day (and first holiday) since losing my mom. We wanted a special celebration, somewhere with a calming atmosphere and good food. Cobalt did not disappoint. Brittany was our server; she was amazing. Her compassion and kindness set us at ease and we cannot sing her praises enough. Thank you, Brittany, for your zen energy. You will not soon be forgotten.

    Dining at Cobalt was a delightful surprise. We had already tried several local restaurants and they were minimally acceptable. Coming from a family of restauranteurs we look for exceptional quality and service. Cobalt went above & beyond. The staff was welcoming and attentive. Our server, Winston, was helpful and attentive without hovering over us. His recommendations were spot on and included the teriyaki cauliflower, the mustard encrusted salmon, and a key lime pie that was perfection. My daughter’s cocktail was also excellent. Kudos to the bartender. The piece de resistance was the incredible view from the outdoor table we were seated at. We arrived before sundown but the moon was up and the sound of the waves was wonderfully relaxing. Great experience!

    I have been to this location since the month it originally opened. In the beginning it was a 5 star across the board. Over the years it has slowly worn to 3 stars. During the COVID times it was horrible with paper plates, poor service. As a IHG ambassador, I avoided this place for over a year. But redemption is on the horizon for colbalt. My last visit was a blast from the past. Our server was helpful and well versed in all the offerings. The food was back to standard! Had the Bison by recommendation and it was delicious. The only suggestion I could have is the manager needs to regiment the staff. I saw servers folding napkins right at the entrance. Young staff ladies on there phones, and talking quite loud about their personal lives. There is a place behind the scenes for this to take place; not on the dining floor. It is poor show, and demeaning to such a wonderful place. The absence of table linens and place settings? Rolled napkins with silverware is not what this establishment characterized in the past. I guess it is business casual as the staff are in polos and shorts? The bar staff was right on target with cocktails. A spot on perfect Manhattan with a smile! Very attentive. Vero beach is a upscale resort. I think the restaurant show reflect the same. Looking forward to more improvements to restore this oasis of charm to elegance.

    First visit since before the pandemic. Definitely disappointing. Whether due to hiring issues, supply chain issues, inflation or something else, the food was poorly prepared and the service was indifferent. What was once a very nice restaurant is now not worth patronizing.

    Although I’ve had the tuna nachos there many times, because it’s my favorite. The flavor of the tuna was bland and a bit watery. The dish it was served in was very precarious. I felt like I was playing a game of jinga with the stack of tuna and chips. I was a bit disappointed, especially since I highly recommended this dish to my friend, who joined me for brunch there for the first time.

    I ordered hanger steak for my entree. What I got was something strongly resembling sirloin tips, even though the server was adamant it was a hanger steak -- big appearance difference between the two. They brought us the wrong bottle of wine, which I didn't recognize until too late -- it was a similar title to the one we ordered. This is my third time eating here: first time excellent, second time good, third time fair-to-good. It's not trending in the right direction.

    We have been coming to Cobalt for many years because it is one of the top 2 or 3 restaurants in town. On this visit we dined outdoors with a lovely view of the Atlantic Ocean. The had booked us at a table in what turned out to be a very windy area but quickly responded on the spot to my request for a table in a less windy area. Service was prompt and any delay in receiving our order was because we were talking among ourselves so much that it took awhile just to get to looking at the menu; when we first arrived there were still several unoccupied tables, but by the time we placed our order most of the tables were filled, so the kitchen was a little backed up. To put it another way, we were not rushed to turn over the table. The menu had many nice-sounding choices and all four of us ordered a different entree. My scallops were excellent, as was my wife’s swordfish. Our friends had the poke bowl which I may try, and a lamb chop that also looked delicious. Portion size was good and presentation was attractive. Prices are very high, as they are at all the best restaurants these days, so I can’t call this a value meal. On the other hand, the food and ambiance are so outstanding that we will definitely be back in the near future.
