A bit disappointed in menu options so I did mention that it seemed a bit lacking and our waitress told us there were actually more options not listed on the menu. There were steak options and a few sides. I was surprised to see there wasn’t more seafood options like a lobster tail. The crab cakes were good. They were tiny but that made them have nice crispy texture that I enjoyed. We weren’t sat in the main restaurant which is always disappointing when there is clearly another table for 4 open and clean inside. They sat the next party of 4 there a few minutes after we arrived for our reservation. Pork chop was great. Salt shakers are grinders that drop large chunks of salt that crunch when you eat it. Not ideal. Overall just a mediocre experience that made the dinner overpriced.

All of the dinners for our party of 6 were excellent. Service was great, and they were so flexible in accommodating a gluten free meal for one in our party. I’d absolutely recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Wind & Waves Grill. We've stayed at Disney's Vero Beach Resort multiple times and have always had a positive experience at this restaurant. The Staff are great! The Chefs have always been attentive and accommodating since we have an allergy to accommodate. Highly Recommend!

Food and service were excellent. Walked into an almost empty room with nothing on the tables. No napkins, plates, candles etc. Looked like a school cafeteria. I know its proabably covid related but it was a little disappointing. Having said that, we ate 2 meals there and I have 0 complaints about the food or the service...both top notch.

My son and I dined at Wind and Waves for breakfast and dinner and both experiences were simply outstanding! The waitstaff is just remarkable — so genuinely friendly and helpful, and the food was delivered quickly with no issues. The food was delicious for both meals! The restaurant was pretty and peaceful. Will do it again and again!

I booked our brkfst reservation morning of, and would book it earlier next time as I know it’s a popular choice. Service was great. Our server was so nice. Breakfast was Disney midrange price point and very delicious. Coming down from Disney for a short beach break I was happy there were options I’ve not found in Orlando and wasn’t tired of such as the bacon egg & cheese biscuit handheld and biscuits and gravy. The biscuits are amazing! My daughter enjoyed her Mickey pancake, and I loved the restuarant had real brkfst with good additional side options for kids (not limited to just applesauce and fruit).

I ordered an adult brkfst for my brkfst loving child. Eggs on biscuits and gravy. I do have a picky eater who wasn’t impressed they put his eggs on his biscuits and gravy, but it was as described and I love that they did because I try not to cater to him to help him learn flexibility— what I forgot was since it was an adult plate it may have garnish. Lol, I spent the first few minutes of brkfst picking every chive (“ewwww, Mommie this is growing grass!”) off the top. After that and his initial pause that eggs can go with anything, my child demolished his brkfst.

Ambiance is close to perfect. Part of that was the temperature was not freezing. Food was delicious and served with explanations and smiles. Asked for a substitution on my entree and was accommodated graciously. Haven't been here in years and it did not fail to live up to or surpass what I remembered.

This was a celebration dinner for my son. I love it here! I have celiac disease and the chef always come out to get my order and they always insure that I can eat safe. The server, Angela was fantastic! Kyle was the chef who came out. Tom the host was friendly and in true Disney fashion gave my 24 year old son a Birthday pin. Totally unnecessary but it was a nice thought. We all had delicious meals. The atmosphere is so peaceful. It’s nice to walk out on the small boardwalk and see the beautiful beach.

Our last visit was an excellent dining experience in quality but that was for the three of us. This time with the 7 of us, the quality of the fillet mignon was no where near the last experience. We spent close to $500 for two bottles of wine, two cocktail drinks, two wedge salads, one appetizer and 7 main course dishes. The server was excellent.
