Nice Surprise

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for a few days and ate breakfast here each day. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. The omelets were light and fluffy. The waffle was also very good. We will try it for dinner when we return in few weeks.

The food and location are nice, however it was not as upscale as we had hoped - lacks a bit in atmosphere for a pricey dining experience. Service was very attentive and they were wonderful making the birthday celebration very special.

During a road-trip to Florida, we decided to spend a night in Vero Beach so that we could have dinner with a friend of my wife from their days at Muskingum University. Looking at possible choices we picked The Wave Kitchen & Bar located in the Costa d’ Este, owned by singer Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio. The Wave... More

While staying at the Costa d'Este, we enjoyed a very nice dinner at The Wave. The minimalistic decor and a rather noisy dining room are largely compensated by a very friendly and efficient service, not to mention great food. The carpaccio of tuna as an appetizer was delicious. The paella for two was incredibly good. We visit Spain quite often,... More

Henri C Thank you for the great review of The Wave Kitchen & Bar. Just as you noted, I too scoop to the bottom of my personal pan of paella to get all the flavorful juice in every bite.

Great flavorful dishes and friendly, attentive service. They offer a nice selection of different ceviche styles. The sea scallops in bacon maple syrup were amazing. We ordered roomservice breakfast...recommend the eggs benedict with the shredded pork...very pleasantly surprised - delicious and a fairly large serving of two eggs.

It was the 4th of July and most restaurants in this area were closed. We were so happy to find that the Wave was open! We typically eat Cuban food at Columbia Restaurant, an excellent regional chain but the closest location is roughly 75 minutes away. This restaurant is a mere 15 minutes away. We ordered calamari for starters. The... More

This restaurant has incredible service. The staff is beyond pleasant and more tha competent. The food is fresh and has a divine Cuban flare. The menu can get pricey, but with the service, ambiance, and food, it is definitely worth it.

My wife had been wanting to eat here for quite a while, and she wasn't disappointed. We had the Filet and Cuban Roasted Chicken, both were top notch. The bread was very fresh and came with house made plantain butter, very good. Service was top notch also
