“Superb views of the ocean with matching quality of service and food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great indoor setting with ample room between tables for privacy, great outdoor seating with superb views, four of us were there for dinner on a busy evening, we were there for well over three hours and we never felt rushed by the server so we can be replaced by the next group, the food was prepared to perfection with great service.

“Wonderful Birthday Luncheon”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Four of us dined to celebrate a birthday. The ambiance was lovely and the food delicious, particularly the mahi-mahi I had. Best I had ever eaten. However, the service was a little slow as it appeared a table nearby was ordering/spending more than ours and the waiter seemed far more attentive to them. Nonethless, it was greatly enjoyed.

Parking was a little difficult in the area during the "season" but you can park yourself in their lot without a charge.

“Stunning food matched by an equally impressive atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I met at Cobalt one night for dinner with friends and I was immediately impressed by the atmosphere in the bar; mainly facilitated by the live band! My friends had already secured the table so I joined them and the waiter soon arrived to take our orders. I had the fresh pumpkin soup for starters followed by the fresh lump crab cakes - absolutely divine!
The live band kicked out tunes all night long, but equally impressive was the fact that the noise levels never encroached on our table conversation resulting in a very enjoyable evening all round. Definitely on the list to visit again when I am next in town!

“WOW! Two Valentine's Days in a row!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We met friends at this wonderful restaurant for Valentine's Day lunch. I called ahead and talked to management to arrange for dinner entree fish to be served for our luncheon. Our fresh Florida grouper was marvelously tasty and prepared perfectly. All four of us loved it. I had inquired about their wine corkage fee and was amazed to be told $0. As we were staying at the hotel and not driving after lunch we had almost 3 bottles of fabulous wines at grocery store prices. It may sound cheap, but we like our favorite Argentinian wines and no surprises. We arrived rather late for lunch and enjoyed the ocean view for an extended period of time. Service was excellent. Desserts were superb.

“The Best Oceanside Dining in Vero Beach!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

This is the best dining spot in Vero Beach to sit by the ocean under an umbrella and have a pleasant meal with family and friends. We generally come here for Breakfast or Lunch. The service isn't great, but then who cares as long as you aren't in a hurry.

Breakfast I may have Florida Rock Shrimp Benedict rock shrimp and andouille cake, poached eggs, sauce hollandaise breakfast potatoes, choice of toast $14.00 or Cobalt Omelet rock shrimp, applewood smoked bacon, caramelized onions pimento cheddar cheese, breakfast potatoes and choice of toast $12.00

Lunch I may have Roasted Beet Salad endive, candied pecans, gouda, banyuls vinaigrette $12.00 or Cobalt Lobster Roll maine lobster chunks, tarragon aioli, arugula $15.00

This is not the best restaurant in town for lunch. For the food only, the Ocean Grill is better, however all things considered, if you want to sit outside by the surf than this is the place for you.

When the weather is good we come here at least two Sundays ever month. Yep! we are locals.

The Cobalt Restaurant may not be the best restaurant in town but the Vero Beach Inn and Spa is definitely the best hotel. They have the best service and staff. We put all our clients here.
