    It was strange. When we arrived, we were told we couldn’t sit in the dining room without a reservation. This was puzzling to us as we could see the dining room wasn’t even half full, and there were several empty tables. So we sat in the bar for 3 minutes as I made a reservation on my phone, then asked if we could now be seated in the dining room. After a few more minutes we were seated. Service was friendly but very, very slow. The entire staff seemed confused and tense.

    Hi PenneyFarmsPrincess, We're incredibly sorry that your experience didn't meet your expectations. There are moments that we go to reservation only in the main dining room due to staffing and to provide the guests the best experience possible. Putting that aside we apologize because what you experienced is not our normal and we expect higher service standards and better communication out of our team. We know we fell short of perfect and will use this opportunity to speak with our grand performers and improve. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any further comments, questions, or suggestions. Best, Philip G. Elrod F&B Manager Casa Monica Resort & Spa 904-494-0100

    Years ago, I reviewed the restaurant at the Casa Monica as one of the finest I'd been to in years. The last two times I've dined there it has sunk to one of the worst (for the money) in my memory. The food is hit or miss between very good and completely unremarkable. The service is hard to describe. It's as if you were to hire seven people to wait tables at a restaurant who have never done it before, give them no training, and stay home yourself hoping they work it out. They are all very well intended, but they just don't know what their job is.

    I guess the true litmus test of a restaurant is whether you would go back. I won't. My wife an I experienced many of the persistent themes across these reviews. Up front...the positive...tuna tar tar, halibut and bread pudding were solid. They also ended up comping my meal since the brought the wrong meal and they sent us home with the salad we ordered but never received free of charge. The not so positive...from our initial arrival something seemed off with the staff. The exchange between the hostess and the server seemed awkward and strained. Our server was initially pleasant but after our appetizer seemed to disengage and avoid eye contact during the extended time between our appetizer and the arrival of our meals when we were still expecting a salad. I received the filet instead of the strip (wife was going to share some of the bigger steak) and I had opted to have the steak Oscar style. Filet was solid but the Oscar topping was unimaginative and border-line cold. The delayed arrival of the meals and acknowledgement of the wrong meal was accompanied by significant complaining and excuses by the server. I have very little tolerance for staff complaints when I'm sitting down in a restaurant of their purported quality. Our server did recover and make the appropriate compensatory gestures. At that point we were over it. There remained an odd dysfunctional stress in the air during the entire meal and it appeared they were understaffed. I'm just glad we got there before it got really busy. In the end it wasn't a disaster but an incredible disappointment that I will not invite into our lives again.

    Hi Drew, Firstly, we appreciate your honesty and taking the time to leave a review. We value this feedback as we need to know how we can continue to grown and improve. Secondly, we're incredibly sorry that your experience didn't meet your expectations and frankly ours either. We are glad you did enjoy some of the culinary aspects of the meal but the failure of the service aspect is something that we do not ever want to deliver to our esteemed guest. I will be sharing this feedback with our management team, service staff, and culinary team to make sure that we learn from this and grow to be what we intend to be. Please don't hesitate to reach out at your earliest convenience if you'd like to leave more feedback. Best, Philip Elrod F&B manager Casa Monica Resort & Spa 904-494-0100

    My Husband and I were visiting St. Augustine for our Honeymoon and found this enchanting restaurant. We made a last minute reservation. We got there just as they started serving Dinner. The dinner we got was delicious, and the server was able to get us Mocktails to celebrate as we do not drink. We felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves...the environment was friendly and inviting. The meal itself was delicious and a big wow! We would love to come back when we visit again. It was really something special for us. Thanks Cordova!

    We waited a long time to for appetizers to arrive. The server seems flustered and admitted she had forgotten. We all ordered steaks as it was a Chophouse. They were out of the ribeye and there were only two strip steaks left. So we ordered strip steaks. They were tough as leather. This place is way over priced for a Denny's steak.

    Our server was excellent, very attentive but did not hover. The bottle of wine was very good and served promptly. The restaurant is presented as very high end, yet the experience is and was much less exclusive. The noise level was very loud, seating arrangement for the two tops were placed very close together. And then one hour and forty five minutes later our meals arrived. Filet $68, no accompaniment. $4 for a pat of butter. Diver scallops (3) $48 and all sides separate. Pricing over the top and the restaurant left a lot to be desired. Our server knew we were celebrating an anniversary and brought us a complimentary dessert. Would stay at the hotel many times over but would dine elsewhere.

    The food and service were amazing at Cordova. My husband and I ordered the Grilled Branzino, the prime sirloin, the charred broccolini, and the truffle Parmesan fries and each dish was a hit! The drinks were also on point! And the restaurant itself is beautifully adorned reminiscent of Moroccan riads. We will definitely return if and when we revisit St. Augustine!

    Brunch should include toast or home fries with eggs. Service was inept albeit with the best of intentions. $8 for mimosas was an excellent price. Bloody Mary was delicious. The highlight was the charcuterie board served as an appetizer- although I would lose the danish. The hotel is a beautiful setting - but if you had to sit near the musician, it would have been distracting. I wanted to love it…

    Excellent service. Good food. I had the Florida grouper. The flavor was very good, as was the fennel and veggies. The fish itself was not super tender, but that may owe more to the species of fish rather than the prep. The beet salad was tender and flavorful.

    Was good. Waitress was very sweet and good. Hostess was a bit rude and out reservation wasn’t ready when we arrived. Waited about 10 mins. Also were sat near a door and it was a bit chilly. They did give us a free dessert of choice for out anniversary. Food was good, but not amazing.

    GREAT service - thank you, Rachel! She also recommended the grouper which was fabulous. At the risk of over carb-loading - the bread ( everyone charges for bread now) with a yummy goat cheese spread was also great. My mission now is to replicate this delicious spread at home. A tad bit pricey but I do recommend Cordova highly.
    CordovaResponded on January 22, 2024
    Hi CindyT, Thank you for leaving a review and for praising Rachel. She is an extremely valuable member of the team and embodies, daily, what we expect out of our service standards. We know that when guests are with her that they will always get the best experience possible. Next time you come see us we are happy to provide you with a cup, pint, or quart, of our delicious charred scallion goat cheese butter that comes with our Bread and Butter starter. That is, if you cannot figure it out at home! We hope to see you soon, Philip G. Elrod F&B Manager Casa Monica Resort and Spa 904-494-0100

    Our experience at Cordova was enjoyable, particularly as we introduced our 5-year-old niece to the world of fine dining, which she aspires to master. While the food options, considering the price point, leaned towards tapas-style portions, the quality was exceptional. The service, notably from our server Karen, elevated our evening; she went the extra mile by presenting our niece with a charming bubbly water arrangement in a wine glass with cherries. Dessert, in particular, was a highlight of excellence.

    Great service and the best steak I’ve ever had. Pretty busy and loud on a Saturday night but we were sat in the back so it was very nice, a surprisingly intimate atmosphere out of sight of the bar

    $49 entree was a piece of fish with sauce. It was an excellent piece of fish, however, there were no potatoes, rice or veggies served with it. Everything is a la carte, even a serving of bread was $10. No wonder the place was so empty.
