“Scenic Breakfast View and Fun Dinner Nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Cobalt has something for everyone. Whether you are looking to start your morning off with great food and an ocean view or looking to have dinner and hang out in the lounge (friday nights are lively....great music and fun people...really happening scene). Service is awesome...Dave will make sure that all of your needs are exceeded. Staff is absolutel wonderful. (Carrot Cake dessert w/ cinnamon ice cream is yummy).

“Horrible service for group of six”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This was our second visit to Cobalt for the Happy Hour drinks and appetizers. Many people come only during the 4:30-6 specials, so the outside seating was full when we arrived at 5:20. We sat inside near the window with our adult party of six. We thought we would have plenty of time to have a couple of drinks and order appetizers. First of all it took us 10 minutes to even get a waitress to acknowledge us, then another ten minutes for her to return with our drinks, another five minutes to "find" the happy hour food menu. Her service was absolutely horrible, even if she was busy, it takes only a moment to acknowledge your customers and say you'll be right back. It was her whole disinterested attitude to take care of us. Apparently she may have been stalling because they were running out of the appetizer specials--my husband counted four popcorn sized shrimp on his plate, not even worth the special price! Then again, I guess when 20% gratuity is automatically added, there is no reason to have to smile, be nice, or work for your tip! We won't be returning for the appetizers or anything more pricey at this "classy" establishment.

“Hideous service, pretentious ill prepared food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Our evening at Cobalt was a resounding disappointment. We had a reservation, and were asked if we'd like to sit inside or outside. The table the hostess walked us to wasn't bussed. The cocktail waitress was assigned our server, for an evening of what we thought would be fine dining. She brought us our wine, no water. The starter was served before they set our table. The bread basket appeared after our starter. Our dirty cocktail glasses were left on the table until the arrival of the main course, which when we finally got some water. The food itself was mostly overworked and not at all memorable. The fries were OK. The grilled octopus was an affront to grilled octopus everywhere. This restaurant clearly relies upon its well appointed location, and pretty interior design. This may be the worst restaurant I have ever been to of this ilk.

It was good but a little pricey. Food came within 15 minutes, no complaints.
