Our waitress is not professional enough. When giving us the handkerchief, she would open it and drop it over our lap. When placing our drinks, it was a little rough making the clunk sound on the table. Also, we were paying partial of the bill with a gift card. So after she came back with a new bill for paying the difference, she said "Here you go. You will have to do the math.". Obviously, I know she is talking about the gratuity. But I find it inappropriate to even mention something like that to the customer. Otherwise, the food is good. Downstairs is bar area, so don't expect it is that quiet even if you sit upstairs overlooking the bar.

Third time at Coast, and the third time they hit it “out of the park.” Simply superb seafood, including uber-fresh oysters and indescribably good red Thai curry clams, plus expert, engaging and unptetentious service. Faultless—another great experience.

I can make better mashed potatoes than the chef at this place. Food had no flavour. I ordered the lobster and prawn gnocchi and was extremely disappointed. If I knew the food had no flavour I'd certainly not pay this much. Overrated and overpriced.

We dined while on our honeymoon in Vancouver. Their staff treated us exceptionally well. We had a more private and romantic location that we were seated at. They treated us to a beverage on the house, a VIP appetizer as well as an amazing dessert (seen in picture). Our server was conversational and tentative to our needs. I ordered the king crab, while my husband ordered the surf and turf special entree. I had an amazing lemon martini as well and my husband received a on the house local craft IPA.

The savoury brunch dishes were all super sweet - even the potatoes. Poached eggs were over done. Service was ok but nothing special. Considering this place thinks itself as upscale, there is a lot of room for improvement.

My party of 4 which was supposed to be for 6 was disappointed that the delicious food we were enjoying kinda felt wasted. while food was still on the plates, our server did not ask if we were still working on it but just took away the plates quickly while us girls were in a conversation. Overall everything was great except that we could’ve enjoyed the rest of the food but it was taken away too fast without asking us :(

We went to Coast with high expectations and were incredibly disappointed. We had an early evening reservation and our food came out so fast that we felt like the whole meal was rushed. We hadn't even finished our starters before the mains arrived and the waiter juggled them onto our table while scooping up the plates that were empty, to try and make room. The calamari wasn't "crispy" as described on the menu, the lobster gnocchi was so bland and lukewarm that we were laughing about how bad it was, and the seafood linguine was under-seasoned with loads of pasta and not much else. The oysters and wine were great, but there is no way I will ever go back again. The worst meal we have had in a long, long time!

P.S. Unfortunately, we just said thanks and didn't complain at the time, as we're English and wimps. Hopefully they were just having a bad day!

I go to Coast restaurant regularly for business lunches, and it usually delivers. I decided to take my wife and kid for lunch this time and they won't be coming back. We arrived at 1pm and waited five minutes for someone to show up at the front to confirm our reservation. We were seated by ourselves in the lesser used upper part of the restaurant, where we need to wave down the waitress to place an order.

Things only got worse. After placing our orders, it took 15 minutes for starters to arrive and my wife salad had no taste and the leaves were wilted. After the starters were completed, it took another 20 minutes for the mains to arrive. The server didn't bring us any utensils. Instead of refilling our cups with bottled water, the server proceeded to refill our half-finished cups with tap water. My wife's ginger ale probably came from a tap that is out of ginger ale and out of CO2. With restaurant mostly empty at 2:30pm, we still waited another 10 minutes to try to wave down someone to get the bill. The bill came with an extra item that we did not order, and by that time, we were all to happy to leave. At over $150 for lunch, there are plenty of better options in Vancouver.

Coast was an excellent seafood restaurant close to our hotel in downtown Vancouver. It seemed to be a bit of a tourist trap, and an in my opinion overpriced, but the coconut curry clams were outstanding, and my sable fish was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The grilled vegetable side and salad where underwhelming and didn't seem as elevated as the fish or appetizer. Probably would not go again but would try to find something a little less 'corporate' and more creative.

Had a fabulous evening celebrating my boyfriends 30th birthday. Service was truly outstanding, and the selection on the menu provided an excellent choice for those who are divided between steak or seafood. Steaks were perfectly cooked, our booth was a perfect blend of laid back lounge while remaining upscale, and from start to finish we were well cared for. Thank you so much to your lovely staff!

ホテルからも近くガイドさんからもおススメしてもらったので18時に予約して行きました。土曜日だったということもあり、たくさんの人で賑わっていました!
2人でシーフードタワーとロール寿司をシェアしました。
シーフードタワーは見た目はとても良かったのですが、お味は少し「おおあじ」な感はありました。
追加でシーフードフェットチーネを頼んだらこちらはとても美味しくてペロリといただきました。
サーブしてくれたスタッフの方は忙しかったのにも関わらずいつも笑顔で素敵でした。
