My boyfriend and I went to celebrate both our birthdays and had the most amazing time! Our server was funny and friendly but let us have our space, the food was unreal ( we just shared a bunch of things and ordered as we went) and were not disappointed with anything. We made a pact at the restaurant that this was going to be officially our special occasion place.

Everything was delicious, the octopus carpaccio was fantastic, soft for octopus and delicious calamari. The sable fish is always delicious and melts in your mouth. We finished with strawberry pepper flambe. Delicious. Highly recommend Coast.

The food was mediocre. We got the Coast Tower and the seafood was not very fresh and lacked taste. For example, the dungeness crab legs had no flavour at all. The service was good but the food was a disappointment.

I sat for 15 minutes before anyone touched my table. I ordered a variety of oysters and when I asked where they were from I got an exasperated “west coast” from the server. After the confusion initially of who was my server, I still had to flag down a server for every thing I needed from side plate to more wine to bill. The creme brûlée was terribly over cooked, brought it to the servers attention, all I got was a shrug and an eye roll. Food as a whole was underwhelming.

They provide quality ingredients. Crab cake has no fillers. Almost as good as in Seattle. Plenty of fresh clams in curry plate. Has sea urchin that was not available in high end Japanese restaurant.
Sablefish is fresh. Sauce flavor might be a bit heavy but that is personal taste. Food delivery is real fast & efficient without any rush at all. Very impressive. Service is great. Kept replenishing water.

A business colleague and I attended for lunch, both planning to have the $9.95 lunch special, however when the server reviewed the daily specials with us, I decided to go for a halibut dish. It was described as halibut wrapped in sopprasetta and served with salad (I expected a good sized leafy salad). The server did not offer up the price and it is awkward to ask, particularly in front of a business associate. Expecting the cost to be in the $30 range, I decided to splurge on this option as it sounded like a very special and healthy dish. The salad turned out to be a small scoop of quinoa with no greens whatsoever (hardly the carb-free lunch I was planning). The halibut was good, but was a small portion and slightly overdone. To say that I was shocked when the bill came would be an understatement: $42 for the halibut special! This is an absolutely outrageous price for a small lunch-sized meal that I could easily make myself at home for a fraction of the price. I have been disappointed by the mediocre food at this restaurant one too many times, and do not intend to return. I must end on a positive note, however, in that our server was excellent, and I do commend his top notch service.

The food was amazing as was the service. He helped us choose the most amazing food and let us know what was the freshest fish and when it came in. We LOVED everything about the food and the restaurant we went the next night and our server chase sent us sushi handrolls as an incredibly kind gesture. Truly an amazing place and not to be missed!!!!

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 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
