I was mistaken when I thought this would be a step up from 1 Pico. I was sorely mistaken.

Food was mediocre. Lobster roll was absent of lobster. French fries were severely freezer burned.

Pasta with shrimp was undercook and rubbery, respectively.

Not returning. A tourist trap.

The restaurant manager, Jamie, was particularly helpful when we were sorting out our table. However the food All arrived at different times and the staff were too keen to clear plates of some of our party who had finished eating. It was also quite hard to catch the attention of staff for iced water etc. We had a good meal though and it was lovely to be by the sea.

I love this restaurant.! Morning meals are friendly and easy chatter in a comfortable setting with an amazing view and very attentive service. Evening has an entirely different mood, more quite, more relaxed, great view of the ocean, and wonderful hotel bar/lounge. Side business/conference room is great for meetings.

I have been visiting Santa Monica once a year for 5+ years and Coast has always been a preferred destination to meet friends and family. The location and ambience are still outstanding, and the service is fine, but the quality of the food has declined, first noticed last year, but definitely this year. The chicken on the chicken Caesar salad was tasteless and not fresh. The hamburger was not good. The bread and desserts were still excellent. Overall, not a good value for the price and we are unlikely to return.

As I was driving to work in L.A., two Spanish radio station DJ’s (KLOVE) were raving about Shutters on the Beach. I looked it up, and sure enough, I discovered “Coast.”

I was invited to speak a CSU Dominguez Hills, so I drove to Carson, from Lancaster, and then to Santa Monica.

The food at Coast was magnificently fresh and delicious. My wife loved it, so I told my brother about it. We will be visiting soon with his fiancé who lives by the Grove.

The beach looked beautiful from our vantage point, but Santa Monica, LA County and the State CA leadership needs to clean up the beach. It’s to beautiful to be dirty and smelling.

We enjoyed brunch at Coast on the charming outdoor enclosed patio and were impressed by the freshness of the king salmon and inventiveness of its traditional brunch options. Upon entering the restaurant, we saw four fresh layer cakes beckoning us to leave room for dessert. Ultimately, we chose the coconut pineapple layer cake to end our meal. It was reminiscent of an old fashioned grandmother baked cake and was so memorable, we came back the next day for happy hour to try the chocolate one, which was equally delicious and incredibly balanced. We paired it with the happy hour Barbera red wine for a decadent treat. Coast is a true gem and all the staff make you feel welcome!

I found it difficult to find a restaurant in that area that offered more than just one dinner that didn't include fish or seafood, as I am allergic. There seemed to be many tasty items here so I was very excited for my date with my husband. We were visiting from Georgia and so we were also excited about California-style food.

Overall, Coast was disappointing. I ordered steak frites. The steak was undercooked, so I sent it back and it came out overcooked and dry. It did not come with any type of sauce, and was not good quality beef. The fries looked like the cheap variety that comes from the Sysco truck. Very little flavor happening in this dish, all for $31. I was also charged $5 for a glass of coke. My husband had a salmon burger with salad. The salad was a handful of mixed greens with zero vegetables incorporated and topped with salt and olive oil. Obviously he was not impressed.

The quality of food does not equal the value in money that this establishment charges. I would expect for a nicer restaurant to have pride in what comes out of the kitchen and clearly that is not the case at Coast.
