Had breakfast here. We should have shared plates. More than we could eat. Calm and quiet, great way to start the day. Easy, since we were hotel guests. Beautifully decorated, and you have a view of the ocean.

We did fish tacos by the pool - very good with very good service. You are less than 50 feet from the ocean-what a view !! Many other selections with good drinks.

We love Vero! We live just 45 mins south and enjoy the Vero area. It's restaurant week so we'd thought (my wife and I) try out a few restaurants while staying at the Driftwood Inn.... the Wave was one of those we tried. Call me assuming but if you're promoting a restaurant for "restaurant week" then maybe put your best... More

Both were cooked perfect and most excellent! This was on a Saturday night.. it was pretty crowded and somewhat noisy, but we were in a... More

We revisited The Wave for the bar and happy hour to give the food a second chance. Patti, the bartender, had been great the first time around and who else serves a nut medley with drinks anymore? So happy we did! Megan, the Asst. Mgr. convinced us to try some of their dishes. From appetizer to dessert we had one... More

Mixed drinks are sometimes weak but sometimes normal. Guess it depends on who is pouring. Nice menu. Well prepared and nicely presented Entrees. Conversation bounces off the walls making it difficult to hear. Not much of a beach view - just the pool area.

We had a fantastic dinner tonight. The food, the presentation and our waiter named David were top notch. David explained everything in detail and his recommendations for appetizers and dinner were spot on. For an appetizer we had the calamari, which was excellent. My wife and stepson had the freshest Salmon dinner and I had the Red Snapper fish dinner.... More

We enjoyed the selections from salads, to wraps and burgers to full luncheon meals of chicken or beef served with black beans and rice. Very tasty and full of flavor. Be sure to try the Yucca fries.
