The food was excellent. And the wine was great. My only complaint was that there were still bones in my fish. The server was polite, efficient, tentative and knowledgeable.

Normally I enjoy coast but on this particular night service was slow and moderately disengaged, food delivery slow. Food is still good (which it should be for the price), but this was not a great visit

Brussel sprouts were over cooked, ahi poke was good but did not have much ahi, the fish we had was perfectly cooked, too many of the dishes rely on a butter sauce which really doesn’t work well when you have dairy allergies, would be great if they offered a tasty sauce with no dairy.

I regularily meet a small group of girlfriends here for Sunday brunch. The seating is great inside or out on the patio. The food and is consistently good and the service is top notch. The specials lend variety. The atmosphere is casual, relaxed, and friendly upscale. Someone in our group commented that she had not considered it for dinner before, but now Coast will definitly be on her list for dinner plans going forward.

We felt warmly welcomed from the moment we were seated. Our waitress Laura was very personable, knowledgeable and patient. She competently fielded lots of questions about the local wines and seafood. She seemed to be stuck with or near a table of kids with their adults but showed no sign of fatigue or distraction.
The food was exceptional from presentation to taste and freshness. We left highly contented!!!

The dinner was good, nothing wrong with it, but the price for what you receive/ the quality was too expensive. The meal quality was really no better than your average restaurant, except you pay high quality restaurant prices!

The apps and the drinks were great!! Loved everything about them. The main course not so much. Had to send the lobster back for being overdone. Second attempt was a little better but still not great Lobster.

The food and menu selections are awesome! We had the seafood tower and it was generous and worth the money. My husband had the duck and I had the salmon and we both ate every bite. Our service was fabulous, but the tables are close together and I didn’t like that, especially for the price of the meal and since we had a reservation.

We went to Coast on the last day of our month long holiday in Canada so were hoping for a special evening. Unfortunately it was spoilt by a very noisy 3 some who spoke very loudly. It was difficult to have a conversation. We should have asked to be moved as there were other tables available but it would have been embarrasing.
The food and wine was good and the staff attentive

Enjoyed my Birthday celebrations with friends! Our waiter Crawford is I’d say one of the best waiter we’ve had experience.

Thanks for the great memories!

It's always my downtown go-too restaurant. I've consistently had good experiences at the COAST.
Great food with a good selection for all, unique ambiance - (it's special without being uncomfortably so), with well trained, yet friendly staff.

On Saturday we went to Coast with friends and enjoyed four delicious meals and wine. The seafood was sensational, being perfectly cooked and fresh. We all can recommend the sablefish, salmon and the scallops main entres. For appetizers we had the clams in coconut curry broth and our friends had a crab cake (all crab!) Two beautiful desserts - try the banana caramel cake as it is amazingly light and flavorful. Our friends enjoyed a lava cake. Our server, Brandon was especially helpful and very attentive.

Seafood lovers delight. My husband and I had the Salomon flatbread and the crab cake. Excellent. We shared a seafood tower which we loved. Our favorite was the wine from the region. Yummy. Our server was personable and efficient. If we lived in Vancouver we would definitely go back

COAST was once one of the most innovative seafood restaurants in Vancouver. No longer. It is still good, but not remarkable. It's past its better. The food was fine, but unimaginative. Nothing we had was poor, but nothing was WOW!, either. And for about $160 for three people (not including our drinks), there should be some WOW! COAST used to impress every time, now it's resting on its laurels. Location and décor still great, but overall experience and dining were mediocre.

Delicious sablefish & snapper however very small portion size. The green beans were too crisp. We decided to go elsewhere for dessert. Disappointing for the high cost of the meal.
