A word from Coastal Grill
With a strong focus on innovative, mouth-watering cuisine, Coastal Grill offers a variety of comfort foods and familiar favorites all prepared fresh. Top quality meats & chicken, grilled to perfection, and fresh fish caught from local waters promise to tantalize the taste buds. On tap are flavorful craft beers made with quality ingredients, each with their own distinct blend. You can also choose from a wide selection of fine wines, by the bottle or by the glass.

Coastal Grill provides an inviting atmosphere big enough to handle larger crowds while still maintaining an intimate feel. We are also equipped with a private dining area for groups and is surrounded with three windows providing spectacular views of the Pacific! You can also opt to dine poolside or beachfront.

Diner Reviews
  • "Although we loved Capistrano's and we're very sad to see it go, coastal grill was not a bad choice. Good range of food options, kids Mac n cheese was a hit (not the boxed kind either). Servers were supportive of hungry, cranky kids on vacation. Definitely come back again!"

  • "Great views but the food was a little disappointing. The steak was underseasoned and tacos while flavorful, was overpowered by toppings. For the price, I was hoping for a little more."

  • "This was very convenient at the Embassy Suites but also a easany surprise with very good food, wine and service. After a long day on the road a real winner. "

  • "While staying at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort, I was looking on Open Table for a good Restaurant nearby when I found the Coastal Grill on the Property of the hotel. The Service was excellent, the food delicious and if you are a fan of Bread Pudding, you have to try the "Cranberry Bread Pudding", one of the best I have ever tasted and I have tried bread pudding around the world."

  • "Service was the worst I've had in a long time... And the place wasn't busy at all. We had to go find our server multiple times to order drinks and take our food order. Food was not good at all, and drinks didn't come out right. It was a disaster and there was no management in the restaurant at all. Never never never again...."

  • "No sound division between bar and dining area, so VERY NOISY if there is a game - we had to stop our conversations periodically when fans in the bar began cheering. Doesn't help that floor is slate and sound bounces around in this room. We had the International Restaurant Week menu, which was nice, but nothing special, with rather bland seasoning. My husband did like the flavor of the tomato bisque, although it was not hot when it arrived at the table (my husband even asked if it was intended to be served cold). Portions are large for all three courses (appetizer, entree, and dessert) and we each took half home to eat as another meal. Nicest feature of restaurant is the view from the window tables at sunset - lovely over the ocean."

  • "Our food was prepared perfectly. We enjoyed our dinner and the pace was very good until the end and then we sat and waited for our dessert for at least 20 minutes. Our waiter made no excuses and apologized. We appreciated his sincerity."

  • "The food was fine - nothing special, but nothing offensive either. Just your standard grill menu - salads, sandwiches, etc. The service was okay as well, though they screwed up a few things. But they tried hard and made it up to us with a free dessert. My family enjoyed the hotel stay in general - so if we decide to return one day - we wouldn't hesitate to eat here again. It's fine for what it is. Nothing more, nothing less."

  • "Thought it was a bit expensive for the quality of the food and the setting. The food was good, but for the price, was expecting something more spectacular."

  • "we loved our meal here two years ago. the physical layout has changed, and it is very noisy now especially when the manager's afternoon special is going on. the menu is more limited. our food was just ok this time."

  • "The ocean view, tho slightly obstructed, was a plus for me. The diningroom is somewhat stark but full of light. The bar is noisy in the evenings and can be heard from our table, but not too intrusive. We loved the calamari appetizer and my lobster bisque was very tasty. My husband had the fish and chips, which he enjoyed. I the fish special on couscous with green beans. Also very good. The portions were generous so we had leftovers the next day. Our server was very attentive and friendly. A nice experience."

  • "We stayed at the Embassy Suites where Coastal Grill is located. Aside from proximity to the beach, there is not much remarkable about this restaurant - or hotel for that matter. We ate at this restaurant twice when we didn't feel like driving anywhere. The produce is crisp & fresh and their couscous with green beans was very good - but it is used for several of their entrees, so it gets repetitive. They had a serious problem with cooking the Sea Bass - twice - very disappointing. Inconsistency seems to be their biggest issue in all areas of the restaurant and hotel. Unfortunately, Oxnard has very few good dining options, so unless you want to drive to Ventura you may find Coastal Grill to be one of the better options in Oxnard."

  • "Great lunch experience on our way up North. Menu had plenty of choices. My wife had the Asian salad and i had the salmon. Our food came out fast and was delicious. Our server was very friendly and checked back on us several times. we went for a nice walk around the property and the views are amazing.. We will definately be back."

  • "This restaurant is not as good as previous one at Hilton Embassy Suites, Capistrano's, but it is trying for different style and needs time to adjust. 1st thing I noticed was the neutral shade decor with no color. Noise bounces off high ceiling and flooring with no buffers. Dining room reminds me of a college dorm cafeteria; 1 big room with tables and chairs. No comfy, private booths. Was not impressed with very slow service during my lunch break. Will go back to try various things on menu. Basically, this place has no ambience as far as decorating. Adding some dividers between tables including plants would help the looks plus buffer sound."
