Disappointed this time around. Fish seemed soggy and mealy. The coconut rice that I usually love was somewhat tasteless. We ordered a bottle of French rose and it was replaced with an Italian one that
Was unacceptable. I then ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio that wasn’t very good but didn’t say anything.
My husband also didn’t think his Caribbean fish bowl was as good as usual. It was a bad night overall.

Food was not good. The coconut rice bowl I had was way too sweet. My daughter’s steak was covered in a tasteless gooey sauce. The fries were good! My husband’s fish was covered in a sauce too - would have been better on the side. Wine glasses are really thick. Overall disappointing. We will not be back.

Cool’a is a favorite spot to join friends or eat with family. Warm and relaxing atmosphere and not too noisy. The food is outstanding and always prepared and presented perfectly. I’ve sampled many dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend Cool’a. Headed back to meet friends this week!

Just wanted to drop another review on Coola.
This place is consistently great. We eat here for date night often. The service is excellent. Jared is one of the best servers we have ever had at a restaurant. The one recommendation I have would be to give the option of a plastic straw with your drink in lieu of automatically putting one in the drink...or switch to paper straws ! Save a turtle :-)

We were in the area on vacation and were looking for a good seafood place for a night out. We ordered the fish dip and coconut shrimp appetizer (~11 dollars each). There were 4 shrimp on the plate and the fish dip was about one bite each for 4 people. We also ordered the blackened ahi dinner the Hawaiian fish, the blackened fish with mango salsa, and the fish bowl. Everyone at the table agreed that the entire meal was bland and flavorless. The sides were also very bland. Overall, the service and atmosphere were good, but the food was flavorless and disappointing. Definitely not worth the money.

Everything coming out of this kitchen looks delicious! And judging from our food it was. I had the grilled shrimp with a fresh salad dressed with honey mustard dressing and asparagus cooked to perfection. My husband choose the steak cooked exactly as he asked, the asparagus, and Cool A Bar's special potatoes. I took a forkful of the potatoes and could not stop. so delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. our reservation was honored without a wait.

This restaurant was suggested to us on several occasions. We dined with friends who also had not eaten here before. We are picky eaters, but we found several dishes to choose from on the menu. The food was delicious! The waiter was attentive and seemed to care that we were happy. I had a specialty martini that was outstanding, not a watered down drink like other local restaurants and, since we arrived before 6:30, it was Half Price! I ate the filet mignon tips paired with grilled shrimp, salad, and the restaurant's specialty potatoes... YUM! My husband also had the filet but with friend shrimp and fries and said it was fantastic. The couple we dined with both ate encrusted salmon stating it too was outstanding. The prices were reasonable and the staff friendly. Loved the decor too! For us, this place was a Big Hit!!
We will definitely be returning!

In Cool'a Fish Bar hat es uns so gut gefalle, dass wir innerhalb kurzer Zeit gleich zweimal dort zu Abend gegessen haben. Das Personal war angenehm zurückhaltend und doch sehr aufmerksam, alle unsere Wünsche wurden erfüllt. Der Fisch war geschmacklich perfekt und die Portionen war nicht zu groß und nicht zu klein, so dass man sich auch noch eine Vorspeise teilen konnte, nur für eine Nachspeise hat der platz dann doch nicht mehr gereicht.
Wir können dieses Restaurant nur empfehlen!!!

We found Cool’a by accident one day and it’s quickly become our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens. We stop in every time we’re in the area and have brought visiting family and friends as well. Food is always fresh and amazing. Full bar delivers great drinks and wide wine/beer variety. Casual atmosphere makes it great for any occasion. Waitstaff and management are very nice and accommodating. We highly recommend the filet tips!

Went for Father’s Day. Our waiter, Doug, was a little awkward and I was discouraged from ordering a dish how I wanted. But overall the experience was good. We had an early reservation which allowed us to save a little bit of money which was an unexpected surprise and the value was decent. Would definitely eat there again

Specialty food, lots of sauces we are not use to. We prefer the stake without the sweet sauce, the stake has good flavor on its own. If you like go discover new taste you might enjoy it. If you like traditional dinning with simple seasoning then it may not be for you, the service was great and accommodating.

From out of town visiting my in-laws. Nice quiet and casual atmosphere. Go during Happy Hour and get 20% off meals and 1/2 wine and cocktails (not sure about beer). The conch app was very good and calamari excellent. We all had seafood and it was very good.
