We sat outside with a beautiful view of the ocean.

The only negative comment that I have is one in our party ordered a salad with oil and vinegar on the side due to diet restrictions. The salad arrived with dressing on the side but it was not oil and vinegar as ordered.

We had to request the oil and vinegar several times before it was received. By the time it arrived, we had nearly finished our lunch!

We were an hour early and sat at the bar for our appetizer even though it wasn’t busy. Service was extremely slow. I was informed by someone (not my server) that because I have a garlic allergy the restaurant could only offer mashed potatoes as a side. I tried to explain that I have eaten there before and there has never been an issue with vegetables(not the kind of allergy where cross contamination is a problem) but she flat out said they wouldn’t take a chance. I guess plain lettuce is dangerous too? After about 30 minutes with no food, the table beside us (6 steak and lobster plates) got their food after complaining about the extreme wait, it was tasted and abandoned and the table left without eating. Around 48 minutes after ordering, our food came. My fish was incredibly salty, my potatoes were incredibly salty, and the 4 mushrooms on top were chewy. The server disappeared for half an hour, we finally ordered dessert which was really weird. Key lime pie, pumpkin parfait, and peanut butter bars are all incredibly strong flavors, putting them together on a single plate was an odd choice. We’ve been there and it was great but not so this time.

Good overall —but we ordered a martini with blue cheese olives. Nope. Ordered a dozen oysters-got 10. They made it right with two extra but it took awhile. Food was basically good with limited menu. Server was pleasant.

We enjoyed our experience, but once the live music started in the lounge it was very difficult to enjoy the evening. The booming base and the volume was not pleasing. Way too loud!!!

I wouldn’t say I would go out of my way to go back for dinner, but I would go back for lunch.

we have been to cobalt many times before for lunches and taco tuesdays, this resturant has gotten very expensive, very limited menu and not much value, in my estimation. we were celebrating our 54th wed anniversay and I made mention of this when making the online reservation, however, nothing was said by the wait staff and in addition we were seated near a family with 2 children who need to play and run around. also directly near us was probably a job interview with a very loud and obnixious interviewer. might think again about spending $$ for a dinner at cobalt

The food does not come near the quality one would expect for the prices you pay.

The oysters, which is the one thing I was looking forward too, were overly slimy and tasteless.

Was disappointed with the quality of the food. Ordered lobster Mac & cheese, which only had slivers (literally) of lobster. The broccolini was really regular broccoli. The only decent item was the Brussel sprouts. Service was extremely slow and had to continuously ask for a refill of our water. Overpriced, poor service, food descriptions were better than the actual food. Highly disappointed. $240 bill for 2 cocktails, no meat and a few sides and oysters

The food was mediocre. I had seafood risotto. I am Italian. I have made risotto many times. It should be creamy and light. The risotto as cloying and gummy. The rice could have been cooked a minute or two longer. And it was very spicy. Upon clearing our plates, some of the rice dropped on the floor. We watched while several servers walked by it, around it. Finally had to mention to the server to please clean it up.

This is a tough time to be in the restaurant business. But for those customers that are going out, you'd like to see a little more from a place.
The prices here are high, we wanted a nice meal. The servers were making an effort but the kitchen fell short, the atmosphere was a little bleak and when we got the bill I was left reflecting that I paid top dollar for a very low end experience overall.
I get the challenges, I try to be sympathetic. We should probably just cook at home for another couple of months.

I ordered crusted salmon. It was dry and did not taste good. I tried to find a
waiter, it took 20 minutes. The service was horrible. I ordered dessert, waited another 30 minutes only to be told there wasn’t any more of the dessert I ordered. It was disgraceful for a hotel with your status Never again!

The food was very good. The service was fine. But there was no ambience. No tablecloth, no placemats, no candle, flies everywhere, hostess pointed out to be aware that the tables and chairs were wet. All these things aren’t a big deal if you’re eating at Casey’s for $50, but not for fine dining at $250. Again, food was delicious.

We waited 1 hour 5 minutes to be served after ordering. I ordered a $42 filet medium rare. It arrived closer to medium well, and was not a good looking piece of meet. We have eaten at Cobalt several times in the last year and the ambiance is the only consistency. Someone came to the table and I told him about the overcooked filet. He said he would send the manager over, never heard from either. I am a unit owner at the hotel and have dined here dozens of times. This is nowhere near the Cobalt it was eight months ago. Staff, kitchen, and management need a lot of work.
