Returned to Cobalt Grille last weekend after a year hiatus. After building up the place to my daughter, i was hoping CG would deliver another fabulous meal, and they did not disappoint. So they are located at the end of the strip mall and you hardly see them from the boulevard. No matter. The food is DELICIOUS: fresh, colorful, and... More

My husband and I were both very impressed with our dinner here. My husband started with the mixed greens salad which was very fresh & perfectly dressed. I had the roasted tomato soup, which had excellent tomato flavor and a pleasant texture. We both had fish entrees from the regular menu & both the tuna & wild-caught salmon were fresh... More

After a recommendation from a coworker I decided to check it out. Upon entering, the bar is nice with some exposed brick and ductwork. As you head to the back where seating is located it becomes clear that Cobalt isn't quite sure of its own identity. The mixture of colors, textures, glass and art dont mesh cohesively. The paper table... More

A frequent patron of the Grille suggested we go for an early dinner to start the weekend. It was my first trip and I was pleasantly surprised that a restaurant in a shopping center was so conducive to a quiet meal in elegant surroundings. We decided to get different meals and share ... but each enjoyed our dishes so much,... More

Ordered pork special, three 'kids' meals and Smokehouse burger. Delicious burger, raw pork and kids meal appeared as $24 on check. Sent pork back to be re-fired and it still came back pink. On the plus side: Great atmosphere! Mediocre service. Gastroenteritis pork.

We are locals and huge fans of Cobalt Grille. The second you walk in it feels warm and inviting. They have fire-pit tables outside or you can cozy up on one of their couches or chairs in the lounge area which is opposite their bar area when you enter restaurant. On most Thursday and/or Saturday nights they have live music... More

My fiancé and I went there with a groupon we were given by a friend for his birthday. We had never been there and were excited to go! We found it fairly easily even though its in the corner of a strip mall. We walked up and saw people sitting outside near fire pits which was nice, walked in the... More

Cobalt Grill has become one of my favorite places - kind of a secret "amazing" spot for consistently wonderful food, great atmosphere & good portion size. Virginia Beach is very much hit-or-miss for truly great places to eat. Some charge a lot, serve small portions & think highly of themselves. Some have good but not great food & everyone thinks...

Fabulous food, vibrant atmosphere, decent bar offerings and good presentation. Servers were polite and attentive but if the place has a shortcoming it was the inconsistency of serving sizes. At our table we had the Wellington, Chicken Penne, pork chop and the seafood special. The first two seemed bountiful while the other two were rather skimpy. Also, even on special... More

We went with an intimate group of friends to celebrate a birthday and a good excuse to go back to a great restaurant. We had fabulous service throughout our dining experience with just the right amount of attention and timing. A few of us split some appetizers and without asking they came pre-split on separate plates. Our dinners all came... More
