We always go to the Mango Tree when we visit. The food is wonderful. Wed. Evenings they have dancing which is fun to watch even if you don't dance yourself. (There are some really good dancers). And there is a live opera singer who has a beautiful voice. The entertainment is in a separate room so it's not too loud or too quiet - just right for enjoyment, conversation, and a womderful meal. We had the grouper catch of the day and Petto Pollo Ripieno - both outstanding - and the mango tart and sorbet for dessert was amazing!
Perfect for foodies. Chef did an outstanding job. The bar was by our table, a little noisy. A fish pond inside the place they could really do without. A chefs table with a glass kitchen view has a modern appeal. The food is what's highlighted here, just as it should. Would love to go back.
One of our favorite places...have been going for years.
Everything Very Good! Food Excellent!!!
We have had lunch several times here. This was our first dinner experience It was magnificent! The food and service was superb. My husband and I cannot wait to dine here again. We celebrated a friend's wedding anniversary. The staff made it a very special evening for them. A rose for the lady, a romantic song by the guitarist. All in all an extremely memorable evening.
The tenor was awesome..food awesome..service great
The best restaurant we've eaten at in a long time! Everything was superb! Will be going back on our next visit to Cocoa!
we went for our fancy dinner during our vacation on cocoa beach and was amazed at the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. the only thing was that that the service was a little rough because there was a large party our waitress also had to take care of but we didn't mind because it was our night out and were in no hurry. it was delightful and will definitely try our best to make it back there.
this restaurant is a gem at the beach! quiet elegance yet a room for dancing and another room for more casual dining. food is fabulous with exceptional service. don't be in a rush, sit back and enjoy.
Haven't had better food than that in a long time! Excellent service
As always, Mango Tree is the standard for fine dining in Brevard...enjoyed the divine, pillowy soft gnocchi, with gorgonzola sauce and radicchio, followed by a perfectly cooked pork chop, with their signature mashed potatoes (not your Mama's mashed potatoes!! Unbelievable creaminess and flavor...)
We had a wonderful dinner - every meal at the table was great and the service was wonderful as well! Great wine and also nice entertainment. We stayed at the bar after dinner for some more drinks and entertainment. We were very happy!!!
The food was great. The Atmosphere is great. The music is great. The service is great. Definitely will be going back when we're at Cocoa Beach, FL.
Excellent spot for dinner. The staff was friendly, and catered to any and all questions. Great knowledge of the menue, and the food was some of the best I have ever had. I will be back for sure!
Service was excellent!! Our server couldn't have done any better---she was attentive, always smiling and offered suggestions when asked. The food was outstanding---homemade ravioli stuffed with lobster! Delicious! My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays and we couldn't have picked a a more unique restaurant! Cloth napkins in decorative folds, live orchid plants on each table, great views of the garden! We ate in the garden room, but another area looked inviting for a evening dinner. The entrance to this area was set off by pulled back draperies and it has a lower tongue and grove wood ceiling which I think would be great for private conversations.
Haven't been since snowbirds flocked on us here in Florida. Missed going there, great food, service and making one feel comfortable and at home.!!
Took my family here for dinner and we had a truly enjoyable evening. Food and service were tops. I highly recommend getting something from their cheese cart for a special treat. Go, you won't be disappointed.
From the homemade pasta's to the Entree's, dining was memorable. We each requested a half portion of pasta, one ravaloi with lobster and one
bucatini. Can't say which was better. Entrees were equally impressive. When we were told the specials, the pork chops sounded interesting. The were outstanding. On the menu is the chicken stuffed with tarragon and garlic sitting on a wonderful compote which compliment the dish.
The Butterfly room is charming and do suggest you request it.
Great food and service. The ambiance was noice and it reminded me of the old Mango Tree. Staff was excellent.
We came for our anniversary & were not disappointed. Great food, great service, great ambiance.
We live in NYC and spent our first weekend in Cocoa Beach recently. We are not fans of chain restaurants and prefer to try local places. I found the Mango Tree on Open Table and honestly did not expect much but was very surprised. The food, both in variety and quality, was outstanding. My wife had the salmon and I had the rack of lamb for our entrees. Both were expertly prepared as were our appetizers. The Ice Cream we shared for dessert is better than any I've had. They make it when you order it. As for service, Pasquale, was great also.
We went on a Saturday night and would have returned on Sunday if they were open that day. I get to Orlando for business every so often and plan to make the hour drive to the Mango Tree next time.
The service was great but there were some major deficiencies in the food. It was not consistent as far as the taste and quality.
We saw the restaurant, decided to try it, and were delightfully surprised by its ambiance, its friendly, knowledgeable staff, and its amazing dishes! It was a wonderful dining experience.
We found this lovely restaurant while on vacation in Cocoa Beach, Florida. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was casually elegant, wait staff was attentive. Light piano music was playing during dinner. Should we return to Cocoa Beach in the Florida, we will definitely return to The Mango Tree!
Remarkably delicious (consistently so) Italian-inspired fare with a highly creative "edginess" to it. This is not your Grandma's Italian cooking! The services is excellent; it is clear that the staff is well trained, prepared, and knows not only the menu but how to deliver responsive customer service. I'll say it again - the food is AMAZING! My business requires extensive travel and I am able to enjoy fine dining in many US cities. The Mango Tree remains my favorite restaurant.
Food & Service was excellent. Was a little disappointed that they didn't have a rose for my wife since it was our First Anniversary but all in all it was Romantic. Will return again :-)
This was our second time back and can't wait to return again. Mango Tree is always one of the hi lights of our Cocoa Beach vacations.
Superb ambience and service, food was very upscale Italian. DJ provided soft dance music and several couples danced ballroom style much to our enjoyment. A surprise addition was an excellent tenor providing vocals to many Italian and American standards. All in all, a very enjoyable night out.
Second time at the Mango Tree and it was just as enjoyable as our first.
Food is excellent, well presented, our waiter was excellent as well.
Out of town on vacation and didn't really know the local restaurants very well. Some internet searching lead us to Mango Tree. If you are in the Cocoa Beach/Melbourne area it is a no brainer. Food was outstanding. My son orders his steak well done and I have never seen a steak perfectly well done before. My husband and I got 1/2 portions of a pasta, (made fresh daily no less). The spinach/filet and lobster ricotta raviolis were outstanding. The wine list was perfect. There were interesting wines (not extensive) for a reasonable price. We ordered a bottle of a French Gris Reserve and it was outstanding. The service was spot on. The after dinner coffees were also spot on. When you go ask to sit in the garden room.
The food and service were excellent and the quality amd selection were excellent as well.
This resturant has passed its prime
The lobster bisque is amazing. The spinach ravioli was excellent! The rest of the table loved their meal as well, high praises for the lobster ravioli, salmon, and the swordfish special. We look forward to returning when we are back in Cocoa Beach!
Truly outstanding. Best restaurant in Cocoa Beach and beyond. Been there 3 times and will be returning many times more.
Finding Mango Tree on Open Table was a surprise considering the area is not exactly a hotbed of fine dining. We took some visiting friends who love dining out and appreciate a good meal. First and foremost the food was outstanding. The lobster ravioli is incredible. A cheese cart before dinner w/different cheeses from Italy was a pleasant & delicious experience And because of the food we will go back without question. The service on the other hand left a lot to be desired. Our main server seemed disinterested. Orders came out wrong. Whisked away without so much as an I'm sorry. Vegetable sides (which were delicious) were brought out half way into the meal. And the bills had to be corrected twice. Still look forward to our next visit.
The Mango Tree has long been a land-mark at Cocoa Beach, being in the historical Cottage Area District. We were disappointed when it had closed its doors several years ago, but it as reopened, with new management, with North Italian Cuisine. We have food the "New" Mango Tree to be as good or perpas better than the original. The food was excellent and well presented. The waiters were always there, but never intrusive. Any requests that we had were immediately granted.
I, had the Free Range Chicken which was excellent. My wife and one guest had the Veal Chops which was also excellent. One of our other guests had the Filet which he stated, "was out of this world."
Overall, a bit pricey, but an excellent restaurant for a night out.
We enjoyed The Mango Tree and didn't see many other places in the area that would have appealed to us. There are a few different rooms in the restaurant and each looked very nice. Very nice atmosphere. We sat in the back by the windows, which overlook a small "pond". There is entertainment in the middle room. Food was very good, service was a little slow, but pleasant. I'd recommend The Mango Tree if you are going to be in the area.
Food was very good to excellent. The restaurant was badly understaffed. I was told that they base staffing solely on the number of reservations for a given evening. As I own a large restaurant, I fully understand staffing requirements. In this case they staffed for far less than they actually had. I find it hard to understand basing solely on reservations and not taking walk-ins into consideration. This is especially true as we tried to have dinner the night prior only to be told they were sold out. It is far easier to have extra staff on duty that can be cut if not needed than to have a great product ruined by far less than stellar service! It would have been nice for the Dining Room Manager to at least offer an apology!
Glad we discovered this gem. Enjoyed the chef's creative genious. Not your usual Italian cuisine but much better! We will come back when we return to Florida.
When I go on vacation I typically try restaurants on account what open table restaurants are avao
able, and this was beat experience. The food was amazing. My fami
y had steaks which cut like butter. I had fish. Everyone was I, pressed with their sides. All had different salads and each was terrific. Desertt was great, from cheesecake to homemade ice cream.
