Just returned from a week in Vero. Here are our hits and misses.
Red Onion-located by the boardwalk and only open for lunch. Our lunch here was excellent. They have a large selection of paninis, sandwiches and salads. My husband had a grouper sandwich that he said was the best preparation of grouper he had during the entire stay. They also have homemade potato chips that are outstanding. There is an ice cream shop next door that also makes wonderful ice cream.
Mulligans-Have ocean side tables and a wide menu selection. Steak here was excellent.
Bella Napoli-located off US 1-this was a definite highlight of our dining experience. Small locally owned Italian restaurant with fantastic food. Clam spaghetti was the best I have ever had. They also have a rum cake that is not to be missed. Service was wonderful as well. Everyone in our party loved the food and experience.
Cobalt-located inside the Vero Beach Hotel and Spa. A great place for fine dining. Menu is innovative and a strong focus on organic foods. We had a wedge salad with smoked ham, black eyed peas and a blue cheese dressing which we loved. We also got the filet which had a nice sauce and presentation. It was topped with perfectly cooked house made onion rings.
Ocean Grill-nice ocean views from inside the restaurant but food was overpriced and mediocre at best.
Aye Jalisco-worst Mexican food I've ever had.
