My husband and I brought our parents to Cove Restaurant. It was so disappointing. The glass for coffee was dirty, our waiter was wearing mask but not covering his nose.
The food wasn't good at all, the fish wasn't fresh, the burger was burn out. I was hoping this place will become one of our fav spot but unfortunately I am not going back and not recommending anyone to visit this restaurant.

My husband and I planned a date night 2 weeks prior and made a reservation at the Cove. When we arrived, they simply refused to give us a table inside the restaurant even though we had a reservation and offered us a table in the extended patio on the street. Since we had no other reservation, we obliged but turned out to be a disappointing experience. We wanted to experience the restaurant ambience and didn’t care much about the food.
We stayed just for drinks and went to another restaurant. I want to support local businesses but they were simply not transparent and said we needed special reservation to be seated inside the restaurant. No clue what that means. It wasn’t worth our money and won’t be visiting again.

I requested a certain area to sit when placing my online reservation and was not advised of the non availability of that area.. but instead was seated in the back patio of the restaurant.. zero ambience ... sofa chairs where not comfortable.. I was very disappointed. I requested an aperol spritz and they could not make it cause they didn’t have aperol ..so was limited to what was available to on the menu only . Food was good .. however they made reference to one dish .. calabrese shrimp and scallops that included grits!? don’t know how or what made them reference a dish ‘Calabrese’?? Nothing about that dish was Calabrese .. and I’m calabrese!!!

We were seated on the street patio which was set up spaced out enough for distancing! The table top was a bit wobbly because it sat on top of a barrel but definitely didn’t ruin the ambience. Service was great and we were very well taken care of.

The location and setup are excellent and the staff are very diligent in adhering to COVID19 protocols. The server was very nice and the food quality was excellent. The only minor criticism I had was that we felt rushed, and we weren’t lingering. I sympathize with all restaurant owners in the current environment and I understand the need for turning over tables quickly, however the feeling we were left with was similar to that which we have experienced in many US restaurants, with barely a pause between serving courses. Notwithstanding this, I certainly recommend Cove highly.

Our friends were celebrating their anniversary and none of us had been out to a restaurant since the pandemic (party of 6). We sat in their covered patio area and it was very well spaced from other tables. The wait staff was very attentive but not bothersome. The meals were absolutely delicious! The only thing was there was not a huge wine selection.

Excellent experience! The restaurant staff were very friendly, efficient and professional. The social distancing measures were very appropriate and made us all comfortable with the setting. Quite a spectacular view and a variable menu with delicious food. The price was also very reasonable. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

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.
