This is my favorite place to eat for special occasions. The food is excellent with great specials. The ambiance is set by thoughtfully placed decorations and gives a warm, romantic setting. The service is always superb, with great attention to detail. My favorite is the garlic shrimp. The sauce in itself is a meal with dipped bread! If you want... More

We have dined at Cotali Mar for several years now and it has never disappointed us. We were three couples dining out on a Saturday evening. All the guys had the signature dish "steak on a stone". We have all ordered it before and as always it is wonderful. If you like your steak medium order it rare as it... More

I can't say enough about this restaurant, that it's going to be short and sweet. The food is so tasty with the right heat. I love spicy food and they are not afraid, I think that was my favorite aspect of the appetizer, Little necks in sauce, scallops wrapped in bacon and calamari all three were terrific. My entrée was... More

This time we went I had the steak on the hot plate with baked stuff shrimp, mashed, carrots and broc. molten lava choc cake. I had to get a to-go box because I just could not eat it all (not even half). Martinis are always a plus. Ana was our server, we request her every time we eat there. She... More

This place just did not cut it for my son and I. When we were seated we were informed by the waiter that the head chef was on this evening. Anticipating a great meal we started with a bottle of Donna Maria Reserva (very reasonable at $50). For appetizers we had the little necks with garlic and wine along with... More

A beautiful space in a tough neighborhood. We were seated fairly quickly on a busy Saturday night. The sangria, made to order, was a great start to the night. We ordered the flamed chorizo for an appetizer and it was tasty. I had the steak on a stone special and it was delicious. It comes with a red wine sauce... More
