We had a party of 8 adults, arrived and were seated on time , (for a weekend night it was not that busy). Our waiter greeted us and then pulled a Harry Houdini (disappeared)! We finally were able to order 2 bottles of red wine and about 15-20 minutes later the waiter returned with our 2 bottles of wine , with opened bottles ? I thought it strange , not to open the cork at the table? Most of us enjoyed our meals, The steak on a stone (although a bit pricey $28.95) was Fabulous, be sure to order it "rare" as you can continue to cook it at your table! Carne de spait.(Meat on a skewer) was quite tasty! Baked Stuff Shrimp was great too! The pecan crusted Salmon was outstanding! The Seafood paella was blasé' (little flavor & the lobster was very dry & overcooked). During dinner we ordered 2 more bottles of red wine and again they showed up in open bottles? We had cappuccinos & espressos to finish our meals! Had the waiter been more attentive we would've ordered appetizers & more drinks. The bill totaled $440 (We would've spent a lot more if we were waited on) which included a 20% tip, which we would don't mind the 20% tip, AS LONG AS YOU EARN IT! After our meals were done, we finally asked another waitress to get our bill and she did. Overall it was a good dining experience with extremely slow service. The main dining room had a nice atmosphere.

This restaurant was very accommodating to our party which was a luncheon meeting. The food was excellent flavor, presentation, and temp. The staff was extremely excellent and helpful. Most of the party has never been to a Portuguese Restaurant and the waitstaff helped them every way possiable. They were funny and kept in top of each and everything that mattered.

Recently had a birthday celebration dinner for a party of five at Cotali Mar. The meal was superb , Rick our Server was absolutely the most pleasant , knowledgeable , efficient guy we have had in a long time! The food was high quality, well plated and delicious. We really enjoyed the scallops wrapped in bacon appetizer, a few of the nice steak offerings and really nice baked stuffed shrimp dish.the food is prepared in a Portuguese manner and delivered by the really great staff.

An excellent restaurant for Portuguese food with a very friendly wait staff. The restaurant has a great atmosphere with very flavorful food and sauces. The price is reasonable for the plate size, I always leave there feeling full and satisfied. Well worth a trip and try you will not be disappointed.
