We have eaten there three times now and will always make it a point to dine there each visit to Vero. Great food, efficient and friendly staff. This last visit though it did get a bit loud in there and it completely droned out the musician playing a ukulele and singing.

My friends and I enjoyed our group Birthday Brunch this weekend at The Wave Kitchen and Bar. The servers were very prompt and friendly and the food was delicious and plentiful. The unlimited bubbles was also a great accompaniment and at a good value. Will plan more get together's here in the future!

THe restaurant has a great ambiance. Music inside and also outside. Now, the food was very good. We tried the Cuban Style steak and the Ropa Vieja. The size of the portions was very generous. Comes with sweet plantains and black beans. Very recommended.

Our waitress Amal started our evening with cocktail selections that were paired well with our entrees. The ceviche and scallops were to die for! The only thing better than the food was the service, Amal is a 5 star waitress. We will go back again and ask specifically for Amal! Also thanks to Walter for checking on us to ensure... More

Came to The Wave to celebrate wedding anniversary. Could not have been more pleased with the whole experience. The food and the service was impeccable. Very nice casual dining experience. Not a quiet candle lit dinner. More of a happy and festive atmosphere but not annoying. Live acoustic guitar was a nice touch. Good variety of cuisine including Cuban style.... More

We stayed at Costa d'Este, and ate breakfast at The Wave daily. The first day, we ate outside, and the other 2 days inside. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The French toast was the best! We also enjoyed the generous yogurt parfait and oatmeal.
