Diner Reviews
  • "Service was slow and sporadic. Fried Brussels sprouts and calamari were greasy and not crunchy. "

  • "My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary and picked Coast as we wanted to go to a new restaurant. Both the food and service were exceptional. We will definitely be back and hope to try their sister restaurants."

  • "In our party of three, we tried a total of four different seafood dishes. All were wonderful and perfectly prepared. The service was SO friendly and not at all pretentious, which was nice to see in a trendy-looking restaurant. The server was knowledgeable and made some great recommendations. The prices were reasonable for a fancy, restaurant, too. We would definitely recommend COAST, and we hope to return."

  • "My favourite place for fish dishes that you can't find everywhere. It's always a bit noisy so not a romantic place"

  • "We took my father for his birthday; we were a group of 4 with 2 gluten free diners and 2 that enjoy all ingredients. Our server Cameron was extremely helpful in dealing with the food allergies, knew the menu well and made sure everyone was satisfied. The cioppino was delicious & would recommend; Dad loved his chopped salad. Each of us ordered a different grilled fish entree - all were cooked perfectly, and the side of a warm salade nicoise was complementary to the dish. Our server surprised the birthday "boy" with an assorted dessert plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate. He was very pleased. The restaurant was noisy - Friday evening "end of the work week" celebrations were in full swing at 7 PM, had a great time regardless."

  • "Coast was noisy and so crowded that the waiters stood on my foot every time they went past. They brought the wrong starter for me and the Salmon that I had for my main was like a piece of rubber. I was glad to get out and definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone who likes their food. The following night we went to Le Crocodile and had an infinitely better meal in a much more pleasant environment for the same money. I would definitely go there again."

  • "Went with coworkers on a Friday night, extremely busy, but service was still excellent. Comp appies from the restaurant for the wait, fantastic touch. Food came a little slower than expected, people who sat down later sometimes got their main first, that was a bit weird. We ordered two grilled Sable Fish, one Lobster tail, and Mussels, with oysters and crab cake to start. Sable fish had skin intact, personally I love it, fish skin is an acquired taste. Lobster was plentiful and the mussels were very tasty. Bread pudding and desert sampler to finish it off, no complaints there. The only down side for me for the night is that the restaurant is quite noisy, it was sometimes difficult to carry a conversation."

  • "Fresh seafood is the star at the Coast Restaurant. From the first step inside your attention is caught by the centrally located round seafood and drinks bar. The fresh oysters for a buck until six pm should get you in early for a few cocktails and chilled oysters before you head off to an attractive, albeit small, table for two and a chilled seafood tower served with dry ice. The mussels are perfect and the prawns jumbo. A little more crab would be nice though."

  • "I am so lucky to live near so many great restaurants on Alberni Street. The Glowbal Group does an outstanding job. They have professional staff who know about the food and wine. I dine out often and recommend my favorite restaurants to friends as well. Coast is one of these. My personal rating is about as high as it gets here; I reserve the 5 stars for Michelin or Relais & Chateaux status properties."

  • "This is the most wonderful restaurant with amazing food and environment! I love the open kitchen where I can see different chefs cooking... I enjoyed my dinner not only the food but also by looking at the busy kitchen. I like the environment here!"

  • "I love Coast's patio - and their food - and their drinks - and their servers! You just can't go wrong eating here! :)"

  • "My boss and I both went to COAST for lunch on different occasions and our food took over an hour to be served. Appetizers were served very quickly however, our entrées took almost an hour. We didnt have enough time to enjoy our meal as we had to rush back to work. My guest and I weren't happy about it at all. Our server was aware of it however, did nothing about it. Thanks."

  • "This restaurant is quieter than other Glowbal group restaurants. The server was very attentive. We have Thai mussels for appetizer. It was really good although we prefer the one at Oakwood, which sauce is richer in taste. My husband and I had the hot seafood platter to share. The scallop was so delicious. For dessert, I had the coconut banana cake. I like the texture but found it extremely sweet for my taste. We will definitely go back again."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The clam chowder was LUKEWARM, not hot. The piece of cod was tasteless. It felt as though it was just taken out of the freezer and defrosted quickly. The batter was super thick and horrible. The french fry was dry and a bit burned. Coast should get Fish Shack's Fish & Chip recipe! My son's beef tenderloin was perfectly done. My husband's sushi box was decent too. For a restaurant that has seafood as its specialty, its Fish & Chip was a total disappointment."

  • "I went to Coast with my girl friends for lunch. Our server Rob was great. He was very friendly and helpful. I have been many restaurants but I think he is the one of the best server in Vancouver! I am working at retail for long time so I am very happy when I get great service like that. We had such a fun time at Coast."

  • "Always love a night out at Coast. this time was different. Had out of town friends who were at Coast for the first time. They'll probably come back to Vancouver just to have dinner at Coast."

  • "Coast is one of our favourite restaurants. We visited there last Friday, March 24, 2014, and the evening started out great. Nice table, sever started out great, and the food was great. However, service became very erratic. Our appetizer came out too early we had to wait for other courses. We were told about a halibut main course special which we both ordered. It was delicious! When the bill arrived we were shocked at the price of the dinner special. $44.95 seemed a little over the top for halibut. The food was great but next time I will be asking the price of the specials."

  • "Our party of 4 recently dined at Coast and had a wonderful evening. Delicous seafood well prepared, nice surroundings and EXCELLENT SERVICE by our server BRAD. It was a Friday night so a little noisy, however we asked for a different table and were accommodated immediately. All in all a Great Experience. Dan and Margaret"

  • "We had a shared surf n turf and it was really delicious, beautifully cooked salmon, lobster, scallops, and steak, with creamy farro and butternut squash. Good wine and a lovely shared pudding - we were very happy diners. Thanks Coasr!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "As the title suggests, food was great, as I typically expect of Glowbal Group restaurants. However, was very disappointed with the speed of service. After we had been seated and orders were taken, the appetizers arrived fairly quickly (oysters) but the mains did not arrive until an hour later. This despite the restaurant being at most, half full. After finishing the main course, it hook quite some time for server to come by to clear the plates even though we had mentioned that my friends needed to return to the office. All in all, not a typically Glowbal experience as they are usually fast and friendly. No apologies were given as I was paying. May return, only because the dishes were tasty but not because of service or efficiency."

  • "I brought my out of town friends to my favorite COAST and they were so pleased with the food especially the mussels! However, we went to FISH SHACK for lunch next day and ordered again mussels there, but huge difference in terms of size and freshness. My friends even asked if these 2 restaurants are the same group but big difference in food quality.... hmm... I told him I don't know the answer..."

  • "Came here on a Friday night and the restaurant was very busy. Food has been mediocre the last few times I came.. Prawns not de-veined, dry fish, bland sides, and little finesse in any of the dishes (not to mention the scratched up, used-looking chipped plates), but I still came back only out of convenience since I live nearby. This recent visit was the worst. We sat at our table and waited literally 25 minutes for our server to arrive and ask us if we wanted drinks. We waited another 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive. When asked about the slow service, she told us to look around at how busy the place was and scoffed. The food was decent, but nothing to rave about."

  • "Had a wonderful experience during my short visit to Vancouver, table service was fantastic, the sushi tile and extra roles were very good but what made it for me was the wine list and service. Exceptional"

  • "We went here for a birthday and the food was all perfect. They sat us in a booth next to 10 business men who bought us a round of drinks. Our server made the experience. Overall a good experience"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Our experience was very good. Very nice restaurant, food and service were very good. My only complaint would be the portion sizes, for the price, they're a bit small. Otherwise, great place!"

  • "I love Coast so much that I deliberately stay at the Shangri-La Hotel when I come to Vancouver in order to dine there, as it is just around the corner. My most recent visit was for my father's 90th birthday and the staff at Coast could not have done more to make this a truly special occasion - from the fabulous table on the second floor overlooking the restaurant to the superb Arctic Char to the wonderful staff who really went out of their way to ensure we had a memorable and wonderful evening."

  • "Service and food is always great but seem rush as server were trying to get you out the door asap definitely not a place to unwind after a long day like it use to be"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Overall food was good but like at many restaurants the serving of vegetables that comes with the entre is way too small, There were enough potatoes but very little else. Yes there were vegies available as sides, but I expect more to come with the entre. The clam chowder was excellent and I loved the two large mussels in shell that were in the soup."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Had a great time with friends. Food was good. Waiter great. We did get our entree way too fast. We didn't even finish our oysters. The restaurant is very noisy. I feel the music can be upbeat but does it have to be that techno stuff? I'd like to try it again and sit outside or on the deck. we were too close to kitchen. I don't like to see the kitchen even though that is "what's in"...."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "After receiving a recommendation from the front desk to try Coast out for great fish, we were disappointed with the entire experience. Coming from Washington DC we thought we'd seen it all, but guess not. After taking forever to be sat when there were empty tables all around, it took our TWO waitresses about 15 minutes to show up at our table. Our drinks were extremely under-poured (coming from a former bartender) and for $12 a drink we were very disappointed. Our servers seemed disappointed with our order and that we were not spending nearly enough as other tables and chose to use that as a reason to drop off our food without speaking to us and not even saying good bye to us or thanking us for our patronage.Overall, salty taste from there."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Although the food wasn't anything special the manager made up for it. He transferred us to a better table and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne while we waited. He checked up on us numerous times to make sure our dining experience was great and to top it all off he personally delivered a complimentary desert sampler plate. And we didn't even complain about the food! He made the night exceptional just from his great customer service."
