We went on Sunday during happy hour and had several different appetizers. The clam chowder and calamari were divine. Thank you for such great service as well.

The dinner was for my Dad’s birthday. Food and service was great for the most part. Our seating wasn’t very good as we were seated beside a service closet.

We have been to Coast a handful of times now, and it's always consistent. Our waiter was great and made sure my seafood was cooked extra well as I'm currently pregnant, which was really nice. Don't leave without trying the Brussels sprouts and coconut banana butter cake!! We will definitely be back.

Been to the Coast restaurant many times and beet and arugula salad was perfect and seafood risotto was lacking flavor (and only a sliver of salmon was noticed).
My friend who treated for lunch enjoyed her salad and the fish tacos.
Service was okay and she did definitely did not appear to want to be either serving us or something. She just came by the table and dropped off the bill and looked the other way as she dropped off the bill.

Will definitely be back and hope she was just having an off day.

thank you.

Our dinner was late.....8:30pm and I felt the server was confused and somewhat frustrated. We are still here sorting the bill and it’s 10:49pm.......10:54pm. P.S. I understand it’s a large party for 15.

WE WERE THE SECOND CUSTOMERS TO ARRIVE AFTER SATURDAY OPENING AND AS SOON AS WE SAT DOWN WE ORDERED OUR FOOD (THE BENNY'S) AND IT TOOK OVER AN HOUR FOR US TO GET OUR MEAL.
I WILL RECOMMEND THE PLACE BUT HOPEFULLY MY FRIENDS TO HAVE TO WAIT HOWEVER LONG WE DID.
THANK YOU.

The restaurant initially rudely not provide the happy hour menu when it was still within the happy hour time by over 30 minutes. It took over 10 minutes before the actual server came and poured us water. After some unpleasant conversation, my order was made. The server never came back to offer last call on happy hour.
There are many other restaurants with happy hour menu so ......

Good food, good atmosphere, only issue with service, our waiter seamed distracted, we had to remind him for water, and the entrees.
Tables are a bit too close to each other.

Super awesome brunch! Our server was great, noise level was perfect, coffee was good too!

The food was really, really good. The only dish we were a little disappointed in was the 1/2 lobster tail rosti. The rosti itself was quite soft and bland, and the lobster was quite small for the $20 price (for a breakfast dish) and a little dry, it was a little underwhelming. The bacon tater hash was excellent though!! Would definitely return.

We went for a special occasion and it was all right, but not worth the money to be honest. We had appies which were good, drinks were good, entrees were lackluster and dessert was good. One entree was served under cooked to the point it was cold so it went back and the other got cold while we waited for the other to come back.Not everything ordered was served, it was on the bill but was fixed when it was mentioned. It seemed like we were a nuisance, the server was nice but just dropped the ball a few times, the manager didn't seem to care and we left unimpressed.

Not sure! I ordered the omelet and it was too bland and simple. Nothing great! There were 2 ladies across the table from me , who ordered the egg benadict, and they were raving about how amazing the food was. I guess I ordered the wrong dish :(

Our Scottish server was very friendly and knew the menu well. He checked with the chef if they could tweak some dishes to accommodate my food allergies and this was no problem. My partner had the beef carpaccio and steak, I had mussels and a fish special with salmon, crap, huge prawns and veggies in a tomato sauce. It was all delicious and more than enough.

Inspite of having a reservation during a non-peak hour, our entrees came after waiting for about 45-65 mins. They were served about 30 mins apart. So I had to wait until my husband's order arrived and my food was already cold. Our server gave unsolicited comments which I thought was overly rude since the service was already so slow.

We had a party of 9 and shared our food so I got to try many dishes. The food overall was subpar, especially for the price paid. The calamari was too salty. OTOH the sablefish and ahi tuna was too bland. The desserts tasted different but not in a good way. The ganache had carrot (?) in it that distracted from the rich chocolate creamy taste. The cheesecake was fluffy and soggy! We also went to Sandbar recently and had similar dishes which were far better.

The server was alright. She tried to keep things informal unlike some higher end restaurants, which is fine with me. However, I have to take one star off when she threw the oyster forks behind my back to my guests sitting on the opposite side of the table (instead of from their own backs). The forks were not neatly or correctly placed on the table either. On the plus side, she did give us a complimentary butter cake dessert for a guest's birthday, and that was actually better than the two we ordered.

Food was too saltly, and the quality of food was very plain. Slicing some beats and dumping some candied salmon is not fine dining. It didnt feel like fine dining at all. Server was not attentive at all. Place is wayyyy too loud.

Well I was seated to a super tiny table at the end of the restaurant. I had to lean against the wall the whole time. Worst, the lobster I ordered was not fresh at all... the lobster must either be previously frozen or be dead for at least 24 hours.... dont go....

I had the food on the dine out menu. I thought all the food include fried oyster and New York steak were pre made, because the steak was cook and hard. The food was served fast because all of them are pre made.

I liked the atmosphere, but the food was not as good as I expected. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't a good value. Additionally, twice a course was brought incomplete or late.

My husband and I went as a date night for Dine Out. I ordered the lobster tail which was severely overcooked and chewy. When our waitress (Isabelle) noticed I didn't want the last few bites, she asked why. I said the lobster was overcooked. She did apologize, however I don't feel that it was enough. A manager did not come by nor was I offered a replacement.

Disappointed in Coast, and would not recommend friends there. Actually, when OUR friends found out we went, they asked why we would ever go there. Oops. Let this be a warning to you all!

As a group of 7, we went to COAST during this year's DINE OUT. We had a quiet table upstairs which was excellent to talk to each other normally. The DINE OUT menu was amazing and I would recommend COAST to everyone you desires Seafood. The service was very forthcoming (great team). Looking forward to our next visit.
