What a lovely restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. However, the restaurant is only one room and over half was occupied by a birthday party. They weren’t rowdy but the shear number of people in the small place made talking impossible. I will go again hoping for a less busy night.

We went to Pompano Grill last night for dinner. We had the mussels (dijon cream sauce) and scallop au gratin for appetizers. Honestly the best thing I've ever eaten! We would have licked the bowl, but there were people watching. Our server was super knowledgeable and gave excellent recommendations. We can't wait to go back!!

First time dining there. Ordered the lobster deviled eggs to share. It was a beautiful dish with plenty of lobster. Fish 2 for the night was Pompano Almondine which appealed to all of us so it was four for the table! We all loved it. Each of us ordered a different dessert. Everyone share and there wasn’t a bite left. Excellent dinner! Only complaint was that it got pretty hot in the restaurant at times. Other than that it was great and I’m sure we’ll be back.

There were three of us and everyone was very pleased with the shared tuna appetizer and with our entrees. The only slight disappointment was with the crepe brûlée. Overall an excellent experience.

Neat place with good food. Desserts were the highlight of the meal. My Parmesan crusted sea bass was cooked nicely and had good flavor. The accompanying risotto was decent but not stunning. The shrimp and grits were about the same. The pasta Carbonara was amazing. They only serve beer and wine. Our server was very patient with us and accommodating to our requests. It was very loud on a Friday night, making conversation at our table difficult.

Consistently AWESOME! Fantastic appetizers and main courses. Have tried most everything on the menu over multiple visits. The only negative is that it is very difficult to choose only one! The wasabi encrusted tuna is my absolute favorite dish at any restaurant in recent memory. Save room for their homemade desserts too! Yum!

It has a lot going for it but way too noisy and extremely hot. The kitchen smells were over powering. They definitely need a new AC and exhaust system. The food was good but way too much and was disappointed in the way the escargot were fixed. Bit then I am not into heavy cream sauces. Good wine list.

We were sweating the entire dinner and for those prices that is unacceptable. Food might be good but when you are dripping sweat into your food who knows. Little attention or follow up from the servers.

We have been to Pompano Grill a few times, but all before they closed for covid and redecorated. We really liked the old menu which was priced as to be expected for fine dining. We did not especially like the new menu compared to the old one and found it overpriced for the food and amount offered although the quality of the food was good.

This was by far the best seasoned steak I have had in a long time, was a great cut of meat cooked perfectly. The service was above and beyond. We had questions about wine and the staff brought samples to make sure we got the best bottle for us. From appetizer to dessert the quality was on point. Could not have asked for a better experience for a date night. Can not recommend this place enough for great fresh fish and an amazing all around experience!

Everything about this place is amazing! Jackie has renovated the restaurant and it is simply gorgeous! Her attention to detail is impeccable. Ricardo is an amazing chef ! The waitstaff - Erika, Summer, Justin are equally skilled and attentive. If ever around the Cocoa Beach area this is a must! We went 2 nights in a row!

First time visit and when we’re back in town, we’ll visit again! Delicious Fried Brie, a delightful twist on a usual suspect! Wait staff was personable and pleasant, but not over bearing. Grouper and filet were both perfect! Had Key Lime Pie and Peanut Butter Pie, both delicious and not too sweet. Definitely recommend a visit!

Made a reservation based on reviews I had read. Pompano Grill did not disappoint. This is a wonderful restaurant for fine dining in a smaller setting. The serving staff may have outshined the delicious food - which is no easy accomplishment. They were friendly, attentive and worked together.

My filet mignon was cooked to medium rare perfection. My husband enjoyed his seafood dish as well. Brie lovers don’t want to miss the fried Brie appetizer. I could have made that my meal. Delish!

The couple sitting next to us ordered the pork chop and Tomahawk ribeye. Wow! Those looked amazing as well.

One piece of advice is to get a reservation. The restaurant is small and it was full. If you want a lovely dinner without a beachy, tourist feel, I highly recommend Pompano Grill.

Will probably not eat there again - food quality was good, however, zilch ambience, noise level incredible, and the prices over the top. I can readily see paying high prices for quality food, however, the ambience and high noise level, severely compromised the quality/price ratio.

The restaurant is small but the atmosphere fits the space perfectly! The staff were very friendly and attentive. I ordered the Parmesan Crusted NY Strip which was the special that night and my husband ordered Two Fish which was grouper. We also had the Deep Fried Brie as an appetizer and ended with homemade key lime pie. Everything was delicious! Definitely a great dinner choice!
