My personal Nirvana
No trip to LA is complete for me without a trip to Coast (and it's predecessor Pedals). There is nothing more relaxing than breakfast or lunch sitting outdoors, preferably with an adult beverage, and looking out at the beach and ocean. Ahhh I can feel the stress leaving my body.

Would not go back
Service was very poor in the beginning. Then the manager ask how we were doing. We told him we were very dissatisfied with the service, especially since a friend of his told us what a great place it was. From then on we were treated like royalty. He comp'd desert, a round of drinks, and even drove us to our hotel in their lemo. The food was very good.

Top of the List Sunday Date Night!!
We frequented Coast for the Sunday night movie special and we were pleasantly surprised.
The ambiance was super romantic (bring a blanket with you to keep extra cozy on the outdoor patio), the lighting was really cute and the choice of film excellent (E.T was playing). The only reason I wouldn't give it the full score is that they started the film a bit too early (the sun wasn't down just yet) so it was difficult to see the screen for the first 30 min of the film. The waiters were a bit scarce in the beginning too and with the movie munchies menu being so delicious (excellent value for money too) I was pretty disappointed when my chocolate cake arrived and it was stale (I have eaten at Coast numerous times before and never had a bad bite.

It was really good food, there
It was really good food, there was just nothing that particularly stood out to us. We went for my boyfriend's 21st Birthday and all of the waiters were pretty nice (however they did not sing). It's more of a casual bar place because it's attached to the Shutters hotel on the beach.

Dining with a beach view
Wonderful ambiance and had dinner looking out the window onto the beach. Great food and drinks but service was subpar.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My friend chooses this restaurant every year for her birthday and all the rest of us are very happy about it. We love looking out at the people passing by and the shoreline. The food is always good and the service wonderful. I also visit here on other days with others and they love it too.

We had a pleasant lunch at
We had a pleasant lunch at Coast. Our indoor table by a window overlooking the beach was great. The food was quite good. The service had some problems, although they were remedied cheerfully. The noise level at lunch was fine.

Not likely to disappoint
We had a selection of dishes in 3 courses, and all were good, some were great. The setting is fairly classy but still relaxed and the location is very nice. The service was very good. 5-stars there! We would definitely go again. Just note that there are multiple restaurants at the venue - Coast is downstairs.

Beautiful view of the sand & ocean
My friend and I went for Dine LA and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the beautiful views. My braised ribs were amazing and she loved her swordfish. My brownie was amazing!!!! Will definitely go back. Valet parking was $7, but easy and convenient.

Not spectacular but pretty good
Ultimately I regret not making a reservation at One Pico. We were overdressed for The Coast and the menu at The Living Room was too limited. The service started out good but that slowly faded as they got busier. It took forever to get dessert and a fork to eat it with. The food was really good. I had the ceasar salad with grilled chicken and the dressing was perfect. My husband had the swordfish which he never had and loved. The dessert was fabulous. Homemade ice cream sandwiches and 7 layer chocolate cake. the restaurant is on the ground floor of Shutters so, you are looking at people walking on the strand. One Pico upstairs has an OK view. For a great view, eat at The Living Room which is upstairs. The drawback is the very limited menu.

Lovely spot, good food.
We had a group of six and got a great private table in the front corner of the restaurant with a view of the beach and water. The food was very good (especially the desserts!), the service excellent.

Coast has a great view and friendly staff. The food is excellent.

A coastal Favorite
Coast is my favorite lunch spot in Santa Monica. Great place to take out-of-town visitors. Great place for friends from northern and southern LA to meet. Shutters on the Beach hotel provides a great setting and I feel like I am at a resort from the moment i pull into the entrance. Coast is downstairs at the beach level. You can literally walk outside the restaurant onto the sand. Have been there often but like the salads so much that I seldom order anything else. Burgers look great. The seafood platters are stunning - pricey, but worth it. We always save room for dessert. Cakes are amazingly good. Carrot, Red Velvet and Chocolate are our favorites.
Love to tke a walk along the beach after lunch. Feels like a mini-vacation.

Great location, very kid friendly, the food is ecclectic, somewhat unimaginative but well prepared. This is our favorite restaurant for the entire family

One of my favorite places
One of my favorite places in the world. I really mean it! Went for a breakfast, and had their amazing lemon pancakes. Now I want to go back again tomorrow for some more!

Coast is more than clear!
WE always stay at Shutters Hotel when in LA and like Coast so much we once we ate all three meals here in a day. Great for our large family group including kids of all ages, wonderful especially for breakfast and lunch. The stree-level people watching is great, and food is fresh and healthy.

Coast on the Coast
One of my favorite places to impress out of towners. Food is good and the view cannot be beat.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
After both "I Cugini" and "Il Fornaio" closed, replaced by useless restaurants, Coast came as a surprise.
Good food, good place, nice view and... price not too exorbitant.
It's the typical case where you get value for your money.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This fresh, beach-level, restaurant is fun, the food is excellent, the menu varied, and the staff attentive. It's one of my favourite places in Santa Monica for brunch or lunch - I've not been there in the evening. The fish tacos, and linguini vongole, are both outstanding.

Always a Pleasure
Other than the ambivalent service from the waitress, our experience was - as usual - quite good. Coast delivers its promise to provide great food, reasonable prices, at one of Santa Monica's best hotels. The Farmer's Market Wednesday menu is inspired, fresh and consistently changing, while the red velvet cake is the best anyone I know has ever tasted. Despite the service, we'll be back to enjoy Coast, as it is a little bit of beachside magic in our neighborhood.
