The octopus main was very disappointing. It's an app size. The servers were very nice and hostess very nice and fast. The food is overpriced for what you get. It also sets an expectation of the food level and that is what was disappointing.

We had a great spot facing the water! It was a hot day so the breeze coming from the water was welcome! The tables were very well spaced! Service was very good and we enjoyed our food overall. I had the poke bowl! Tuna was very fresh but I’ve definitely had better poke bowls! Friends enjoyed their dishes!!! We would definitely come again!! Great vibe overall and we love the patio!

Cove offers a great blend of a fabulous location, creative cocktails and good food. The environment is relaxed. The staff are friendly and are all wearing masks. We felt like we were on a little holiday as we sat on the patio to celebrate our anniversary.

Food was not good at all. Service was so slow and server brought out wrong order... had to constantly flag her down.. drinks brought out... no cutlery or napkins to even clean off your can... just not a good experience. Won’t b going back. Only nice part was the patio view.

The ambiance is amazing and feels like Miami Beach! I would highly recommend the location and the view!
The food portions we’re smaller for the price so be aware that you maybe still hungry after so if your ok with light & airy dishes and delicious drinks to make you smile and helpful waiters to give a nice experience to you and your guests

It was fabulous. We had a terrific hostess—- Izzie. Then wonderful oysters and a lobster roll and poke bowl. On Wednesday’s they have half price bottles of wine. During this pandemic I am cautious of where I eat. Cove took every possible precaution to keep their staff safe and their customers save while providing a wonderful dining experience. This was my second putting since quarantine. I would go again definitely!!!

I have been to this restaurant 3 times now, always either at the suggestion of others or because of location. The area is lovely and so is the view. The food is not and the prices accordingly, are high. The servers and service is just fine. What a shame the owners don't work harder to make the food inviting.

Everything was PERFECT except the portion of octopus was the smallest I've ever seen. I dined with a friend, we both had service dogs. The staff was welcoming, accommodating, respectful and so friendly. Can't wait for our next visit!

First time there, the food was great service was great. All around it's a great vibe, great place to go on a date.

Due to Covid the tables were spaced out appropriately and it was over flowed with people. I felt very comfortable.

We came the first Saturday afternoon as Oakville entered phase 2. Cove did an amazing job - we felt extremely safe and well taken care of. They had all the necessary procedures in place, but still made us feel very comfortable. The food was incredible - chicken sandwiches and fish and chips for the win! They also had the roof closed, which was perfect because it was such a hot day, we would have melted in the sun. We still got the nice breeze off the harbour, and all the comforts of being on a patio. We’ll definitely be back.

It was friendly from the first moment we stepped in, very nice smiling decent staff and manager/owner, with special recognition to Tom and Natalie
The ambience is cozy and calm which makes it a very suitable place to have an intimate talk or business meeting on a dinner.
The menu was ok with some unusual items which makes it a bit confusing to choose from, but it is missing also more variety for main course.
But the overall experience was very good.

Nice place, food was good. Portions were a little small but still yummy. Nice little Place, would be beautiful in the summer. A little pricey but still not bad for a nice meal.

Became violently ill within hours of eating at the restaurant, called restaurant to see if any other instances were reported. Restaurant owner immediately dismissed any chance of the illness being related to the food. Did not offer to look into it at all. Very poorly managed in my opinion.

We had a great experience dining here for New Year’s Eve. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! The only thing I would say was they could have been a bit more generous with the scallops. I ordered the scallops & risotto and there were only two scallops in the dish (but they did include 3 small beet arancini rice balls), most scallop risotto dishes I have had elsewhere usually come with a minimum of “three” scallops per dish. The carrot cheesecake dessert was to die for though, would highly recommend that dessert.
