A favorite spot when I'm in Vero.Beautiful location offering ocean views, cool breezes and great food. Bar has a fantastic selection of rums and other high end spirits, service is good and the food is consistently savory. Not cheap but the value is there, try it out, you'll like it.

I took my wife, parents and adult children to dinner at Cobalt, eight of us in total. While we waited for dinner my mother mentioned that the ladies room was disgusting. She discreetly mentioned it to the staff but they were offended that she brought it to there attention. At dinner the waitress completely forgot my salad. I brought it... More

Cobalt is the provider of the room service at the Kimpton Vero Beach hotel. They can not handle being a separate restaurant and provide room service. We ordered room service and were given a wait time of an hour to hour and a quarter. But the hostess who took the order said probably up to an hour. I thought that... More

I had roast which was delicious but the potatoes and brussel sprouts seemed overcooked and not really fresh. They tasted like they had been nuked. The food is very expensive for it not to be exquisite. Service was good. Had a local craft wheat beer which was good. Husband ordered a recommended pinot noir that was good. ($35 for the... More

The Cobalt Restaurant is so close to the ocean you are almost misted by the sea spray. The views and food are amazing! The signature Lobster Roll and Truffle Oil Fries are the ultimate!

I am a full-time resident in Vero Beach and frequent Cobalt several times a month. Regarding last night, New Year's Eve, I called and asked if it would be possible to have dinner at the bar for two. I was told that I could indeed have dinner at the bar but would have to pay the fixed menu price. Because... More

I'm sorry you didn't have the experience at Heaton's Reef as we would have like you to have. Our beach kitchen is very small and can only handle so many orders at once but it's our fault for not communicating that to you before you placed your order. We hope you give us another try or perhaps try our restaurant... More

We had lunch here while visiting friends in Vero Beach. They were remodeling, so they had a limited menu. But the waitress still filled a special request for one of our friends. Thought that was very nice. I had the crunchy breaded shrimp. They were served on a bed of red onion, red cabbage and green apple and some sort... More

Hi Rick, Thank you for your nice review. We are so glad you loved the shrimp. Sounds like we might need to revisit our chicken dish. Chef loves to switch things up every now and again so hopefully the next one will impress your wife a little more. We hope to see you again soon. Cheers, Charlissa Dodge Interim General... More

Fresh from the Atlantic, our dinner menu includes highlights like local tuna sashimi, grilled cobia with roasted lemon-butter, and sweet potato clam chowder. Save room for a slice of decadent key-lime cheesecake or a scoop of house-made seasonal ice cream.
