Heaton's - Vero Beach
Our waiter was great once he took our order. Waited a while. Food was cold, tasteless. Potatoes were delicious but rest was mediocre at best. Very windy that night. Would have preferred the screens to be lowered a bit. Waiter did take swordfish off of bill and we appreciated that. Would go back for happy hour, music and drinks. Place has a lot of potential but food needs to improve.
Thanks for the feedback Eileen!
95+db noise level and 1/2 the group were having upset stomach within 4 hours. Pricey and not that great of food. To be avoided.
Thanks for visiting and sharing your feedback! We have live music 3 nights per week and you can always check our calendar for the most up to date information!
Menu was limited, the restaurant seemed to be short staffed.
Poor ambiance.. just plain plastic tables and chairs on open concrete. The food comes from the hotel's main kitchen,which also serves the fancier restaurant next door which has an infinitely better decor and setup. Lots of noisy kids in the area didn't help but is to be expected at what is a family restaurant. Nevertheless the cost was $100 with tip for two. Not bothering to go back. Lots of other better experiences to be had at that value level.
Hi Stephen! Thanks for dining. Heaton's actually has it's own separate kitchen, culinary team and menu. Thanks for your feedback and we'll pass it on!
The advertising blitz for the new Heaton's did not match our experience. The photogenic outdoor deck seating was not open for lunch, and we were seated by the pool, full of families staying at the hotel. The food was typical hotel pool-shack fare, not at all what I expected. It was the kind of hotel pool experience you only go to because you want the kids or grandkids not to have to leave the pool - not a good experience for a non-guest, looking for a beachside bite with a friend. Staff was wonderful, and not to blame for our experience with wet, rowdy kids, and substandard cuisine.
Good Afternoon! Our deck is open daily, but was closed for installation of our heating and cooling system for a few days last week. We apologize for your experience as the restaurant vibe certainly shifts between lunch and dinner service. All the information is always available on our website and we hope to welcome you again soon!
Nice covered outdoor venue with a view of the ocean. A somewhat limited menu for lunch but food quality is good though slow to arrive on this day. A bottle of Chardonay eased the wait. Would return.
Thanks for visiting!
Room furniture old
Jacuzzi very small
Valets very friendly and profession

Thanks for visiting and sharing your feedback - we will pass on to the hotel team!
Excellent all around. We will definitely return for a second visit.
Glad you enjoyed Wesley!!!
Great food, service and atmosphere. We’ll be back!
Thanks for visiting!!
We had reservations thru opentable for 730pm Saturday October 10,2020.
She did not have us listed, so we ate at high top table by the bar.
Food was luke warm at best, flavorless, no seasoning. Zero presentation.
Many people got up and left. Our waitress was running around like a maniac
trying to take care of everyone.
MANAGER NEEDS TRAINING!!!!!!!!
Great ambiance after the renovation. Will definitely be back.
Thanks Jared - see you soon!
Had haddock crusted with crab and grilled lobster wine was
Paired nicely good meal and nice night out
Glad you enjoyed!!
Recently enjoyed an excellent dinner at Heaton’s underneath the new canopy attached to the poolside bar. We had the snapper special and the pan seared pompano. Both entrees were fresh, perfectly cooked and accompanied with tasty sides. Dessert was a gluten free apple crisp! Absolutely delicious! Service was exceptional.
Thanks for dining
The location is great, the quality of the food was good. What annoyed us was that there was a 15% promotion and the server refused to apply the discount. He said we could not use the code on the day we dine, this was never stated in the promotion and I had actually dined at Cobalt their sister restaurant the day before. This left us upset and not feeling great about how the situation was handled.
Troy was great , food amazing , great location!
We want to stay there next weekend get away , thank you !
Thanks for dining Gail - we'll pass it on to Troy!
We had another couple join us for dinner outside and looking at the ocean the entire time was just what the four of us needed during this COVID-19 experience. We all live on the island but had not tried Heatons. What a delight!! We all had seafood that was outstanding, especially the Swordfish!! Wonderful server too!
Glad you enjoyed - we hope to see you again soon!
Love the outdoor setting, especially considering the times. Food is all delicious.
Glad you enjoyed!
A little pricey for the amount of food but is a very nice place with excellent staff and great ambiance.
Thanks for visiting Lisa!
When it comes to oceanfront seafood and fine dining, the twain never shall meet often. Thanks to the Kimpton resort, it can happen at a fair price and great locale at Heaton's. There are just three things of note -- live entertainment can drown out the conversation at a table, and the restaurant does require a trek out poolside. Then, there is the service -- glacially slow. Is this because all of the seafood is frozen and thawing for preparation is necessary? It's just a tad curious. Oh, and the insects just loved my wife. That said, this is a great restaurant and we would happily return -- open for non-guests with complimentary valet.
A lovely setting over looking the ocean. Attentive servers. Very noisy thanks to the loud background music and some energetic patrons watching a football game. The food was alright, better than cooking at home. Go for the view!
Glad you enjoyed Irene!
Love the view, hate the noise level. Grilled swordfish delicious.
Thanks for visiting!
Service was a little slow as our food took about an hour to come out, but we had a beautiful ocean view. Food was good and not too badly priced, but they get you on the wine. Overall, an enjoyable night!
Glad you enjoyed it Cathy!
Troy was wonderful! So attentive! The view is spectacular! Good food, but could improve a bit on the menu.
Thanks for dining Rebecca!
The setting is spectacular, and the service was exceptional. Our husbands had burgers for lunch which were perfectly prepared to order, with wonderful French fries. My friend and I both had fish tacos which were just OK. The corn tortillas were soggy and the fish was a bit dry. They should improve on that item. The setting, and the service made up for a lot!!
Thanks for visiting Rebecca!
Watching the horizon with a great meal was absolutely the best ever. It was not crowded when we were there but I’m sure the weekends really pick up
Glad you enjoyed it!
Menu was very limited but entrees were delicious. The view of the ocean was spectacular. It was a nice evening dining al fresco.
Can't beat the view Leslie, right?!!
Great menu, served al fresco with fresh ocean breezes and overlooking a sand dune.
The restaurant space is a lux covered patio with automatic awnings if the weather is inclement. Service was very attentive and our meals delicious.
We will definitely return for another date night!
Thanks for visiting - glad you enjoyed!
Best place t eat in Vero with a million dollar view!
Thanks for dining Mike!
I had the catch of the day (red snapper) it was amazing. The view is magnificent. It’s so nice to be out to dinner!
Thanks for visiting!
My new favorite place!
Glad you enjoyed Liz!
Toby is the best...A delightful young man. He goes out of his way to make your dining experience fabulous. Needless to say, the view is to die for.Thank you,
Fantastic - thanks for visiting Katie! We'll make sure to recognize him!
Two friends and I enjoyed a Friday night out with an excellent view of the ocean. Service, food and ambience were excellent. We each had a different fish choice each to our liking; Mahi, Swordfish and the evening special Snapper. Along with our chosen side it indeed was enough but not too much. An enjoyable night out by all.
Thanks for visiting Gerie - see you soon!
Beautiful view, nice menu, food was delicious. Piped music was a plus, when the vibe was beachy.
Glad you enjoyed Liz!
We love this place and would ordinarily give food 5 stars but this visit my wife had a main course that was not up to usual standards but they took it off bill w/o our needing to ask.
Thanks for visiting James and glad we got it resolved!
I should have paid more attention to the fact that this is a much more casual restaurant. When my wine came in a plastic cup, I realized my mistake. I did ask for a wine glass and was accommodated. The food was average. The crab and artichoke dip was more pasty flour dance than crab and artichoke. Unfortunately it was a rainy, stormy evening and although covered, the roof leaked throughout dinner.
Poor service and overpriced-70 dollars for a seafood platter that had anything but fresh seafood
The renovation and the expanded deck is very done and the views are outstanding. However, the musician was so loud it was uncomfortable. The sounds of the ocean would have been a better experience. The staff is great but are managing so much. The issue I have is the food. I’ve been eating here for 10 years and it clear the kitchen staff has changed over. We did not enjoy our food. Overcooked, fishy and cold vegetables.
The redone Heaton’s is a must! The food and drinks we amazing and the view can’t be matched!
Thanks for visiting!! ;)
Disappointed with this new opening. They set tables by the pool area instead of the gazebo. Had people in bathing suits right next to our dinner table. Food underwhelming. Clams casino were thick and bready, bayou pot was lacking seafood.
Hi Bernie - our apologies. We are still in our soft opening phase and had some unexpected construction that forced us to close the deck. We will be 100% complete by the middle of next week and hosting a Grand Opening in April!
