If you're staying at the Ritz you have very few options on site to eat. Coast was one I hit multiple times while in town for a conference and honestly wish it was better. Big issues are noise, poor service (when busy) and food was just okay. For the price and brand of the hotel honestly I expected more.

2 hours to get served. No apolgy from waiter, manager beside herself when I get upset! This is the Ritz Carlton? Recommend you pass, but May not have a choice.

We've been dinning at Coast for the last 8 years and always everything has been great, from the service to food to ambiance. The last time, however we had not so great experience. I took my friend out for her birthday. Our waitress ( a new face who hid her name tag under a vest!) was extremely unfriendly and rude. While I was picking the wine from the list, she was rolling her eyes indicating impatience and frustration towards me. Then only after I had to remind her to bring the usual bread basket, and that's after we've been there for 1/2h, she snapped at me that only after we order our food she will bring it! That kind of attitude would be more acceptable at Mc Donalds drive-thru - NOT the Ritz Carlton. I addressed the issue with the manager and demanded a new server for our table. He was very kind and send us a new waitress (Daniela)who had served us before many times. From that moment on the service was top notch. Another issue that night was the fact that a family with a teenage boy with Down syndrome was seated next table to us. By all means I am not being sarcastic or insensitive but the hostess (since the parents couldn't care less!)should have seated this family to a side table where the boy would not make such a distraction and annoyance to everybody around them, such as "Mooo-ing" for most of the evening, showing his bare feet and putting them on the chair and table. The parents completely ignored him but everybody else was definitely distracted and grossed out. I would still keep going back there because the head chef really does a fantastic job but next time I will definitely ask for either Daniela or Alicia to be our server and not take risks of spoiling our night.

I was very disappointed in that I said it was our 33 Anniversary and no one said anything about it. We had the pork chop. It was good but I think a little over priced. My husband had the wedge salad and said it was good. I had the beet salad and I think both over priced. Overall they did give us a window seat that I requested but nothing about our Anniversary.

It was a perfect New Year's Eve celebration. Too bad Opentable didn't tell us there was only a special buffet menu for that night.

We arrived a couple of minutes early for our Christmas reservation and were seated promptly.
The restaurant was very busy and I appreciated being seated upon arrival. Christmas dinner was a plated selection. Choice of one of 3 appetizers, choice of entree, and dessert. I started with the smoked trout which was absolutely hands down wonderful. If they offer this ever again I would urge anyone to select it. My entree was scallops and they were a bit over salted. Hubby had the duck confit croquette for appetizer and he liked it very much. His entree was the short rib which he liked a lot. Desserts were ok. Nice but limited selection of wines by the glass. As you might imagine, on Christmas day they were very busy, and service reflected that a bit, but not by much. We did not feel rushed at all.
If you want to eat outside (even when it is a bit crisp outdoors) they do have heaters on the patio and quite a few diners were actually taking advantage and eating their Christmas dinner outdoors.
I do have to say that at the close of dinner, we asked to finish our meal with limoncello. It was surprising that at the Ritz Carlton there was not a bottle of limoncello to be found. Anywhere. Not that it is a big deal, just a surprise. The server was quick to offer a complimentary substitute, which we declined. He brought two ports anyway, with his compliments, which we thought was very nice.

Overall a great dining experience. Only problem was one dish had braised Brussel sprouts on the side that were tough and inedible. Should have been parboiled. Restaurant made up for this deficiency, so no big deal. I would highly recommend for a quiet casual dinner without going overboard at the Ritz.

Overpriced and underwhelming. Waitstaff was just odd, commenting how he disliked weekends and the food was just ho hum. Seemed like they were relying on the location to carry them. The chowder seemed like it came from a food service, the lobster roll was tiny, over salted and charred. And the wine was ridicously overpriced. Although we were on the patio there was no view of the the ocean. Not a Ritzy experience at all :(

Thanksgiving buffet was excellent with lots of delicious choices. We always enjoy having Thanksgiving at Coast when they are serving their special holiday buffet. My only complaint as a somewhat disabled person is that the dining chairs are very heavy and the arms are too low to enable me to push myself up. My husband had to help me out of the chair each time I visited the buffet.

We thought that for the price, the food was uninspired and disappointing and the service as well. There was nothing bad about the experience, it just did not live up to expectations.

It was my wife's birthday, so we decided to celebrate it at Coast. We stuck with five appetizers and did a "tapas" like dinner. I don't like (or at least didn't like) beets ... this appetizer was AMAZING. Chowder and shrimp cocktail were good. I found the Wedge salad to be dry. Ok, but not the best I have had. They did a nice birthday surprise of sweets for the wife. The flourless chocolate cake was also fantastic. The wine select is expansive. Overall, Good +, but we will try other places before going back.
