Great food. But Alex the waiter was extremely rude. After specifying we wanted a small dessert to share he brought us carrot cake for two for 16 dollars. When I brought this to his attention he said “well if you don’t have the money for...it, I’ll take it off the Bill” all in a demeaning tone. Yikes. Insulting experienceMore

This was the first place we went to eat this year when we got to Wildwood. Our lunch was so good that we went the next night for dinner, and the following morning for breakfast. I tried the calamari, aloha salad, apple&onion soup, crab cakes...and the sugar pearl waffles with berries. All of these were fantastic! We had Alex all three days as our server and he was fantastic as well. He gave great advice when I was not sure what I wanted and he was spot on. Clean, elegant restaurant, excellent food and service, a total win.More

Tables were nicely spaced for Covid and all staff were wearing masks. Breakfast was fine, but not fabulous. Kind of a small menu. One of our diners ordered a bacon and cheese omelet that came without the bacon. She was given a side of bacon...instead. With all the great breakfast and pancake houses in Wildwood, we were expecting more at one of the nicest resorts in the area.More

Very limited menu. Gourmet dishes for dinner. Absolutely delicious tuna roll. Nice atmosphere, service was excellent. Georgia went above and beyond to ensure my husband who has a shellfish allergy, was safe and well taken care of and that anything he ordered would definitely not...have any chance of cross-contamination. She is a very important part of that restaurant. Restaurants need servers like that. Was not overly thrilled with the chefs idea of putting scallops with blueberry reduction and acorn cake. I think it could’ve been better done either on a bed of greensWith some Asian slaw, with the pancetta. But not the blueberry reduction. All in all fresh clean nice atmosphere and excellent service.More

We are staying at the Icona, spending a fortune at this hotel and ate dinner at coastal blue tonight. We were there celebrating my 40th birthday. The waitress took awhile to finally greet us and when she did she seemed bothered and very short with...me when I asked a question about the menu. I was clearly wearing a birthday crown and sash. She didn’t wish me a happy birthday. The food took forever to come out. My kids were beside themselves at that point. She never came over to ask if we needed drink refills, we had plans after dinner that we couldn’t do because it took so long. We ordered desert and she didn’t even bother to bring a candle so my 2 kids could sing happy birthday to there mom. It was really a terrible experience and I’m super disappointed that I won’t be eating at our onsite hotel again this trip which makes it easier than driving to another place. On a side note The food was good when it actually arrived almost 2 hours later! Never again!More

Ate dinner as a guest at a Kona. It was just me and my two kids, I’m not sure if that played a part in why the server was very attentive to the families that had a man & woman at the table.. with my...kids and I noticed it! I had to ask for a bread basket twice and she seemed annoyed; however, she brought a bread basket to the other tables without anyone asking. My fish was so dry I can hardly eat it… But she did not return to the table and ask how we were doing, we could not get a refill on drinks and I want another glass of wine but she just never returned. So I ended up just eating what I could of my meal I’m leaving most of it although I was hungry! When she finally returned with the check, we noticed she didn’t even ask if we want to desert. I just paid the check and decided not to say anything to the manager because I just didn’t feel like dealing with it! We immediately went for dessert next-door at the ice cream shop. I am returning to I cannot this weekend and I am bummed out that we will not be able to eat at the restaurant on site. I would prefer to leave my car and eat there, but it was so bad!More

I hate to write this review but the service was awful. I also don't blame the staff....I blame the management because they were clearly understaffed. The food was good and it's the only reason I gave it 3 stars tbh.
