Diner Reviews
  • "Service was great, food was really delicious and choice was plentiful. The place had a buzz to it. Management were very visible and present. Overall a great night out"

  • "Every morsel of food was delicious. We were new to Vancouver and the waiter was eager to help us find some of the hidden gems around town!"

  • "Really great experience for a foodie / wine lover. I was on a first date, service from Dianna was excellent without being over-attentive, Jerome ( Sommlier / Restaurant Manager) was extremely helpful in choosing some excellent wine and generally making our evening really memorable."

  • "awesome service - Franklin is amazing as always - i love the sushi box for lunch here!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Very disappointed with the entire experience. While our server was personable and offered suggestions, the food coming from kitchen was slow. Raw oysters should require little prep time! My husband did not get the dish that he ordered; but after waiting 30 minutes for the oysters, he ate what was served him. Music was loud to the point we could not talk across table. Air conditioning was having problems so indoor temp was uncomfortably warm. Overall, an unsatisfactory experience, one not to be repeated"

  • "The food was amazing and the customer service was the best I have ever experienced. All in all a wonderful night and we will definitely go again and have already recommended to others. Our server Jennifer was excellent and made our evening over the top!! Thank you"

  • "We were warmly greeted at the entrance by the hostess who graciously showed us to our table. The ambience was good & the menu choices mouth watering. We ordered the signature surf & turf platter which was delicious. The manager who come around lighting the candles was friendly & sincerely wished us a good time. Even the bus person was cheerful & nice. So it really threw us off when the waitress who served us was unpleasant & generally created an unpalatable dining experience for us. In the end she made a mistake in the bill and when we pointed it out, her response to the mistake just made us feel awkward & unpleasant all over again. Everything else was good, it's just unfortunate that we had the waitress with the horrid hospitality."

  • "Always love the shrimp wrap lunch box and enjoying lunch with a friend or two on the patio anytime of year, but especially in the summer!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Our first dinner in Vancouver disappointed. Our reservation ran late, so we took a seat at the bar. Several other couples seemed to be eating, and places were set. The restaurant was very full and the music was loud. The bartenders worked VERY hard, but making drinks was DEFINITELY their priority. This was not the right place to start a foodie vacation in Vancouver."

  • "SPent our anniversary in Vancouver and had a fabulous dinner at Coast. The appies and meal were amazing and everything was extremely fresh. Our server recommended a delicious wine with our meal and we would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Nothing better than TGIF happy hour with the girls! Service was prompt, drinks were flowing and appies were awesome as usual - the crab cakes are delicious!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We went there for half off appetizers and it was great. The food came quickly and it was delicious. The caesar salad was slightly over dressed though but I did not mind at all. The clam chowder was perfect and the service was great."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Yesterday I celebrated my on year anniversary with my girlfriend. I have heard many great reviews from my friends and I wanted to try it out. The seafood was very fresh and you can tell the quality by the taste and texture. We arrived during happy hour which was also a plus! (50% off appies on Wednesdays I believe) Would highly recommend, you'll see us again I'm sure of it."

  • "Excellent food, wonderful service and great ambience"

  • "Our recent visit was to celebrate my brother-in-law's bday, a fact we mentioned when making the reservation. We received a great table on the upper level w/ a view of the entire restaurant. Our waiter (Matt) was amazing. He was attentive but gave us privacy too. The Manager stopped by a few times to ensure everything was good and shared a few laughs. We were a party of 4 and opted for 1 cold platter for 2 and 1 hot platter for 2. Both were great - I though the cold was the best! Coast never disappoints. I'll return time & time again."

  • "We spent our third consecutive anniversary here and they treated us like we were incredibly important. The staff were kind and prompt and helpful and that, combined with the excellent meals provided for us, made us confident in our decision to return for this anniversary, and more than likely the next one. We felt very special once again and the way they took a couple extra seconds out of their incredibly busy evening to check up on us, wish us a happy anniversary, and to even give us the same table each year, was above and beyond service, and we appreciated it very much. Looking forward to returning."

  • "We always enjoy coming to COAST. One note - - With the bar being in the front of the restaurant, I understand wanting some music - however, there are guests dining there as well - just up the step. If the music could be quieter in that area - it would be better. We've visited COAST each time we've visited Vancouver. We really enjoy the fried broccoli - it's sooooo tasty. I will continue to come back!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Service was outstanding, the food was to die for. It was in my mind, a little overpriced. However when you are located in the downtown core the rental rates can be way up there. The noise level was at a point that showed everyone was enjoying themselves. Definitely a place for the younger set. I myself am on the "flip side" and as such enjoy a quieter experience. All in all a worthy place to eat."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Absolutely amazing restaurant, food always delicious and service was outstanding!!!! Thank you."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The sushi was so good it nearly brought my husband to tears and had him declare we'll have to come back to Vancouver from Europe just to have more of it. On the day we visited, the chefs had created a special 10-dollar nigiri from local ingredients that we tried and absolutely loved. Wine was well paired with the food and cocktails well made."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Really disappointing experience overall. Our waitress was rude from the outset and when asked about the menu said 'well we are out of crab and lobster' and in a fish restaurant at 2000 on a Sunday this seemed ridiculous. My parents were over from the uk and this was their first experience of a Canadian restaurant....unfortunately it wasn't a great one"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "unbeatable for seafood. It was very very busy the night we were there and we had ordered a range of raw oysters to sample so that took a bit of time, but the manager came and gave us a second drink, unasked! Bartender Nathan was wonderful and so creative! we had fresh halibut and wonderful desserts… a memorable dinner."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We have been to Coast many times and when we have special friends coming to visit, we love to take them to Coast. The food is excellent and the service is top notch."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "My husband & I celebrated our anniversary at Coast on Saturday night and they made the evening very special. We arrived a little early and they gave us a choice of inside or on the patio. We chose the patio as it was less noisy so easier conversation. Our waitress was very busy when we arrived but was attentive and friendly and quickly got drinks to our table. The chef sent an amuse bouche which was outstanding. Our waitress made mention that we were celebrating a special occasion, Dinner was great, not rushed and following dinner the chef sent a special dessert plate specially done for our anniversary. I had been to Coast before entertaining clients but this was my husband's first visit. He loved it, we'll definitely be back."

  • "I had the grilled ling cod. It was so fresh and tasted fantastic. My wife had the Classic mussel dish they were done to perfection. This resturant is reasonably priced. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys seafood dining."

  • "We had an amazing dinner -- each dish, better than the last. The service was wonderful. We will definitely come back."

  • "Three fo us went to Coast for Dinner and it's friday, we wanted a seafood. The place was packed, it.s good I reserve it. The food was excellent, we were able to be there before the happy hour expire and ordred 12 oysters and calamari. It was so good. I ordered surf and turf, it was so good but seems expensive for 80 dollors but you are in nice place. I will definitely comeback. By the way, our waitress was very attentive to us, I forgot her name, sorry."

  • "Everything we order was of the highest quality, seafood was fresh and dishes were simply perfect"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The highlights of this restaurant: the oysters and the bartenders. If possible, sit at the bar. The charismatic mixologists will chat, recommend and even create personalized cocktails for you. Order a mix of fresh oysters and sample away! My second time, table service on the patio, the service was good but not great (not as amazing as at the bar). The Dungeness crab was sold out and the snow crab fell apart and was cold so it was a struggle to get out and eat. But nonetheless, I will be back to this place for sure! For the oysters, the cocktails, and those bartenders."

  • "The food was lovely and the service was good. What more could you ask for! I took a customer for a business lunch and it was a perfect pick."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "It was our last night in Vancouver, and we had pre booked to go to Coast , from the UK, as we had seen it on TV in the UK, and it looked amazing. The place was full, and we were offered a table outside, but we wanted to wait to be seated upstairs. We sat at the bar and had a drink. Everyone was very friendly. We did have to wait a long time for our table , but we did eventually get the table we wanted. We had to wait a long time for our food . I ordered LOBSTER, which came out totally stone cold, and Graham was brought the wrong meal. The manager,,,ROBERT KLAUS, was absolutely brilliant, and he did everything he could to make up for the bad food. He did give us a complementary pudding, which was lovely."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Went here for father's day and I wasn't too impressed. The food was good for the value but the service was really slow. It took one hour between appetizer and entrées, and another 45 minutes between entrées and dessert. That was pretty off-putting."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I went to Coast on Father's Day with my family. The food was fair but the service wasn't as well, taking into accounting that this is an expensive restaurant. I had the grilled sable fish and it was delicious. My sister had the halibut and it was pretty good too! However, I find the sides not to meet my expectations because it was minimal and doesn't look as great as the description. The server also barely came to our table and all of our food including raw oysters came 30minutes after we ordered. I believe they should improve their speed.... and especially raw oysters. it's not something that you need to cook.... why did it take so long?"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We've come here often and usually it's been fantastic. A busy Friday night and I assume short staffed made for a less than favourable experience. Our entrees took an hour to be served and appeared to have been left sitting for awhile in the kitchen as they were luke warm. The manager or waiter though new there were issues without us complaining and delivered a platter of small pastries for dessert, on the house. Nice move. It left our party of 4 in a positive mood and willing to give Coast another chance at wowing us."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Sadly my halibut was overcooked and dry. I did not complain because i was entertaining clients and it was not appropriate to do so."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I sat at the bar for an early dinner. Dalen, one of the bartenders, had a great local wine recommendation to pair with the halibut. The selection of oysters is amazing. Great place!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "First time at Coast..recommended by a friend. Loved the food. Quite noisy, esp the music level...made it hard to hold conversation at our table. Service staff very good. Would come again....when back in Vanc from our home in Toronto."

  • "The bartenders were outstanding! We had drinks before dinner with the bartender letting us sample other whiskeys and fresh oysters. The meal was also very good. "
