“Beautiful restaurant on the ocean..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

A wonderfully decorated restaurant on the water. Reasonably priced for the location. Our friends graciously took us to this restaurant a few years ago and did so again. Lots of interesting things for decoration, and we had an ocean view from our table. Service was fine. My wife and her friend ordered a mango crab salad which they both enjoyed. I had NOVA SCOTIA SEA SCALLOPS, which were perhaps a bit overcooked? There was little taste to them. I'm not sure I've ever had Nova Scotia sea scallops, but I probably won't order them again for a while. A bit disappointing as we enjoyed the restaurant the first time. I will go back and try something else, Maybe N.S. scallops aren't as tasty as Sea scallops from somewhere else. The company we shared was wonderful, however, and the location of the restaurant is very nice, so we all had a nice visit and a good time.

“Our worst experienced in Vero”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

As Vero Beach residents for the past two years my wife and I have been to most of the establishments in town. Tonight we decided to use a gift certificate we received for Christmas this year. After being seated we could not help but feel as though we had been judged by the wait staff. The waitress did not even bother to introduce herself. Over our hour and a half experience at the restaurant she came to our table a total of 6 times. 3 of those 6 being to take empty plates/glasses off the table without a word said. My wife ordered a fish special and I ordered the lobster tail and crab cake, both were bland and cold when they finally came to the table. At this point we did not even feel like sending our meals back, we just wanted to pay our tab and leave.
As a minority of the population here in Vero being young professionals making a household income of over 100k per year we feel as though Ocean Grille needs to take serious consideration of the longevity of their restaurant and the future patrons.
We will not be back.
This is the only restaurant in Vero we have had this experience. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.

“Fantasatic find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We were very pleasantly surprised with this unasuming looking restaurant
The meal and service were supberb Each food was beautifully presented and had a distinct taste which complimented the other flavors
Even the gift shop was special - fairly priced, unusual items and helpful sales people
The only negative was the long wait for a table Had we known, we would have called in advance for a reservatiion But it was certainly worth the wait
If we are in the area again, I would look forward to dinning there , but with a reservation this time
Heartily recommend it

“Disappointed!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We heard great things about Ocean Grille as well read very good reviews on Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Urban Spoon. We went there for dinner and were disappointed as we were told we couldn't make a reservation for another hour but it was less than 1/3 full when we arrived, we were seated at a table that was uncomfortably warm, and our salmon was dry and overcooked despite asking that it be medium rare. We thought this must have been an off night so we went back for lunch. It was slightly better but still very disappointing. We won't back!
