So excited Pompano is open again. The food and wine was excellent as always. The staff were friendly and helpful.
It was quite loud, can’t tell if it was just that evening or the acoustics of the restaurant since the remodel.
I realize that with the COVID issue the restaurant had to remodel. Notwithstanding, they hired an excellent chef cook that loves to prepare spiced up meals. That is not too bad, and one can always request "no spices". However, the NOISE LEVEL was just too loud. Is it the fault of the lack of soundproofing or is it some patrons that love to talk VERY OUT LOUD so that everyone in the restaurant can hear what they are saying.
I would only recommend Pompano to a friend if said friend wanted an ambience of loud noise, lots of spice, quite expensive and NO hard liqour.
Priced high. Didn’t feel like our dinners were worth quite that high of price. Food was good.
We almost decided not to be seated when we saw how close the tables were during a pandemic.
Excellent food and service! Shrimp and grits was perfect as was the creme brûlée. Service was prompt and attentive.
The grouper over lobster and crab risotto was incredible.
So happy to see Pompano Grill back in business. Love the new look and menu. Food was totally on point.
The renovation is quite an improvement. The menu has changed and has more variety. I had the wahoo special which was a huge piece of fish and I loved the accompaniments. It was a very thick piece of fish though and was mostly overcooked which was disappointing. The other two diners had the grouper special and it was perfect. They did not tell you the price of the specials so we had a bit of sticker shock when the bill came. I do love this place and maybe this will be some helpful info for them.
We loved the new place! Great decor and awesome new menu! Try it! You won't be disappointed!!
Pompano Grill is our #1 favorite restaurant in Cocoa Beach. We are soooo happy that they finally reopened after an extended shut down due to COVID. They did an incredible job on the new remodel and decor during their shut down. Jacke, Erika and the entire staff are all so nice and very knowledgeable of the menu and their wines. Many things changed on the new menu but the new refined selections did not disappoint. We always order whatever the specials are and have never regretted our decision. Nothing they have is average everything is always fresh and over the top. You need to save room for Jackie's fabulous homemade desserts (if you're too full get it to go). When we have out of town friends in town they always ask to go back to the Pompano and we are always happy to oblige.
Pompano Grill never disappoints. This time we just enjoyed wine and appetizers. It’s great to have them back and I will always go there when I’m in Cocoa. In my opinion it’s the best restaurant on the Space Coast.
Thank you so much for the kind words and your 5 star review! We greatly appreciate your support throughout the years and especially during these trying times for all of us. Be well, Jackie Sampson Owner
Absolutely fabulous. Shrimp and grits so tasty, love the shisheido pepper starter.
Cute little gem in Cocoa Beach! Delicious food including fresh seafood. I highly recommend the escargot appetizer, it was fantastic!
Had the most fabulous evening celebrating a new promotion with a friend.
The yellow fin tuna appetizer was amazing!
I chose the shrimp & grits and my friend had the scallops -- which we both shared...not disappointed - absolutely delicious! So full, no room for dessert.
This was our first visit here and plan on returning....SOON!
Small and intimate, lovely staff -
Highly recommend Pompano Grill.
Be sure to make reservations.
Only negative was limited parking (small lot) as this is a popular resturant.
Fantastic small restaurant in Cocoa Beach. Awesome food and great service. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Pompano Grill is the best restaurant we have eaten in Cocoa Beach. Known for their seafood, but their meat and pasta dishes were also delicious. Good wine list and reasonably priced. Very professional and friendly service.
Food and experience was exceptionally good. Each horse was well-made and well presented. It all tasted great and we were looking for a signature dinner for our time in cocoa Beach.
Food was delicious hot and served in a timely manner. Generous portions.
Food is amazing. Service awesome
We’ll be back
Service and quality and taste of food was beyond expectations. Wine selection varied and affordable.
Desserts are made daily and are superb.
The food was fantastic, cooked to perfection. The calamari was tender and crispy. The escargot very different but lovely blended flavours. The steak was cooked to perfection and very flavourful. Would definitely go back.
Nice evening. Good food and service.
Have been several times, the food and service are always outstanding. Nice cozy little place. Very unassuming from the outside but don't let that fool you. Highly recommend.
This is the best food in the Cocoa Beach area!!! Wait staff is just fantastic. Overall it was a awesome experience that I highly recommend.
As always great food and service
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Cocoa Beach. We love the intimate setting and atmosphere. The food is just outstanding. The service is impeccable and the Key Lime Pie is the best in the state! Highly recommend this restaurant! Reservations are a must!
Food was great as well as the service. I would recommend.
Everything was amazing. Escargot app, shrimp and grits dish and scallops were delicious. Definitely recommend.
The food was truly excellent. Appetizers to the entres. The noise level in the room was very loud. Certainly not intimate. Kind of one medium size room filled with tables and chairs. It's a shame because many similar restaurants have been able to create much more quiet and fairly intimate settings. The service varied from a very nice and very helpful women who took us to our table and brought us our bottle of wine to our waitress who seemed much more interested in her friends hanging around outside where she spent a lot of time. When she did show up she didn't seem to be interested in providing the service typically received in a small restaurant specializing in more expense gourmet meals.
Overall, I would recommend Pompano Grill to friends due solely to the food but caution them to set their expectations a little lower for the rest of their experience.
I do apologize that you felt our service was lacking on your visit. My daughter (your server) was involved in a very serious car accident on Wednesday and because we are a small family owned restaurant, she came in and worked, even though in severe pain. We are happy that she is alive and the guests at the door were long time customers who were concerned as well. While I'm not making excuses for your experience, unfortunately it is not a typical experience that you had. Again, our apologies.
We were late being seated. After being seated we waited 10 minutes and then had to summon someone to find a waiter for us. It was like we were invisible. The waitress asked if we wanted bread and we said yes. We received our salads asked for bread three times and never received it. Before we finished our selves our entrée arrived. It was not a good experience
Been twice and both experiences excellent.
We had a great dinner date! The service was okay, a bit forgetful of a few things we asked for, but who doesn’t have a bad night sometimes! The food and dessert were very tasty, original and good portions for their value. The upgrades were surprisingly expensive, but worth it. Overall we had a lovely experience and will for sure come back!
This was a very peaceful, ambient, tucked away spot that my wife and I truly enjoyed. Our server and the staff was very welcoming and always smiling. Restaurant is not too big, it's just the perfect size for us to have a romantic dinner. I did notice there was no background music - I love listening to smooth jazz in this type of atmosphere - very faint and not too loud. The food was great - it would be much better if the menu had more options for a pescatarian (which my wife is). Wonderful time overall.
We had such a great experience dining at Pompano Grill. We highly recommend it! The service was fantastic, the food was amazing, the whole experience was so perfect. We can't wait to come back! It is small and quaint inside, which means the servers can really make sure your dining experience is wonderful. It is the perfect place for a romantic evening or a girls night out. They have a huge wine list and a unique menu. The staff truly makes your meal an experience. The chef, with advance notice can accommodate dietary needs.
The food was awesome. Friendly owner as she stopped by our table to check on us. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. I will definitely go there again soon.
This place is a neighborhood gem. It is nestled off the beaten path - so leave home with your GPS if not a local. Some out-of-town friends suggested we go there as they remembered finding it their last vacation to the area years ago. It is quite small and intimate and parking can be a challenge, but the staff are very gracious and professional. The food (mostly seafood) is superb. Everybody's dinner got a rave reaction. Reservations are a prudent option as there is no waiting room. Though we had a reservation we had to wait outside for 10 minutes till our table cleared out. Had it been cold or rainy.... But, it was well worth the wait.
We were visiting the area and happened upon this place by chance. The food is outstanding—I had the fried green tomatoes and shrimp scampi dinner. Excellent. The wine list is exceptional and includes old world selections that are wonderful. Would definitely highly recommend.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The service is always attentive and the food is always superior.
Highest quality wine list and knowledge make this place easy to return. Very well prepared seasonal fish dishes and premium quality beef cuts attract me, look forward to visiting again.
We so appreciate Jackie and Erica. They pour their heart and souls into giving you the best dining experience. The food is consistently delicious! Their wine list is outstanding. If you enjoy desserts as we do, Jackie’s pies and cakes will top off your evening. We are grateful for Pompano Grill!
