My wife and I had dinner at 95 Cordova over an extremely busy weekend in St Augustine. Most restaurants were jam packed as was this one. The difference was they accommodated us graciously unlike the rude turn downs at some other spots.
The restaurant is located in the Casa Monaco hotel which is in the heart of the downtown area. We were seated promptly and our waiter arrived immediately to take our orders and help with the menu. We shared the fried green tomatoes to start and they were delicious. The tomatoes were firm with a crisp batter and topped off with chopped red tomatoes, warm Gorgonzola and a drizzle of lemon-oil-cilantro dressing.
My wife's grilled sea bass was perfectly done, ample in size and presented on a mound of mashed potatoes accompanied by asparagus. I had the lobster tail with crabmeat risotto which were delicious though the lobster was slightly tougher than I prefer. All in all it was an enjoyable meal with a feel of being served in Old World surroundings.
