Great food and excellent service. Tables a bit too close to my liking. And noise level was high.
I would go again.

Great, very knowledgeable waiter, very good suggestions inckuding wine to go with the food. Quality of food was excellent from starters to main course to desserts. Kusshi oysters and green tea tart are now our all-time favorites!

Had the most amazing maple glazed sable fish of my life....in fact it was the best fish I’ve had in my life. Incredibly tender and bursting with flavour! Highly recommend.

Coast is one of Vancouver's finest restaurants, and this particular experience sealed for us that we will eat there on our annual Vancouver visits in the future. The food is superb, it is a beautiful restaurant, but it is the staff that makes it -- assistant manager Albert, the Chef, Alex, servers Jacob and Isabelle -- they are all absolutely outstanding.

This is a great experience that I cannot recommend too highly.

Good seafood with shellfish specialities in downtown Vancouver. Lively crowd with elevated noise level, noticed during early dinner, especially around large raw bar.

Met with friends from Vancouver to have a night out together at Coast. Food met expectations for myself, but my wife was a little disappointed. I had the seared scallops and they were amazing. My wife had the seafood linguine. Besides being generally underwhelming, the seafood was also mostly missing from her dish, and more had to be brought out from the kitchen. The restaurant itself was vibrant and busy in a good way. The service was just good, not great. Food was brought to the table at a good pace. We were never rushed. The kitchen seemed to have run out of too many things for a 6:30 seating. The halibut special was gone but we didn’t know until after our server told us all about it, and they had run out of many of the oysters from the day sheet. All in all it was a good evening, but at this price point, a few little things could have made it a great evening.

Business lunch at Coast - overall a good experience. I appreciated our server's attentiveness. Wine the smoked salmon flatbread could have benefited from a bit less time in the oven, as the bread was overly crisp and difficult to eat. Clean, well appointed space in the dining area. Fairly loud volume in the room, but not too loud to chat comfortably.

The food was incredible, the service was fantastic. Laura was probably the best server we have seen in a long time. We had my brother from the States who found this to be one of the best rrestaurants he has been in a while, My only negative is that I wished that I would have had a little bit more emphasis on our 28th wedding anniversary.

Wonderful food, drinks and service. Server Geoff was outstanding. Tables are very close to each other, so it can get a bit noisy.

We were disappointed with the quality of food. This is the fourth visit for us, but the quality has gone down. I ordered the “fish and chips”, and it was way oily...chips limp with oil.

We ended up at Coast while visiting the area. Our server (didn’t get his name but has an English girlfriend and helped us out with Grouse Mtn info) made excellent recommendations from oysters, sablefish and the banana cake. Top notch service, ambiance and best meal on our trip! We want to come back already!

Been to Coast before, for a fact every year for our anniversary. By far this time around it was the worst we have experienced. The table behind us had 5 middle aged ladies that were speaking outrageously loud. Our server was not up to par. At no point throughout the night did he acknowledge our occasion for the evening. Food was still amazing like usual and the cocktails were amazing! But I think the clam chowder needs a little remake, it’s too thick.

Thank you
