Seafood
The freshest fish, succulent shellfish and chilled seafood towers are here at COAST, with the rarest, perfectly prepared oysters nestled in beds of ice. This is BC’s best seafood and true West Coast dining, flashy and fun for every mood and every occasion.

COAST is where fresh British Columbia seafood dazzles in a setting that features a clean, contemporary design with deep turquoise tones, mosaic-tile floors, and lush leather banquettes. This is the definition of a breathtaking Vancouver aesthetic that extends a respectful nod to historic San Francisco, home to the world’s most iconic seafood eateries. The COAST entry welcomes guests through a street-side patio bordered by two custom fireplaces.

Service was excellent. Portion of lobster for the price is not in line at all. Small portion, large price, considering we ordered the king crab. Other then that it was good.

Great food and excellent service. Tables a bit too close to my liking. And noise level was high.

The halibut special was overcooked - to my dismay!
The ahi was good though.

Service was friendly and good.

I will give it a second chance if I come to visit Vancouver again.

Five stars in every category. Found this restaurant by chance on open table when visiting Vancouver. If you love seafood, sushi, great service, nice ambiance and and a walkable location from any downtown /waterfront hotel, this is your place. Laura, our server was top notch. Energetic, cool vibe. Phenomenal menu options, to the point we had trouble deciding. Ultimately went with a smoked salmon flatbread appetizer and three different sushi rolls, plus desserts. The manager came over and asked us to give them our opinions on their brand new dessert menu. Laura highly recommended them all, but highlighted a particular few that the pastry chef was extremely proud of. We picked an out of this world coconut/banana cake and a chocolate gateau. The gateau was extremely good and different with an anise chantilly cream, but that cake....oh, that cake!!! It came out warm, almost hot, with a delicious creme anglaise type sauce surrounding it. We've never had anything like it. Phenomenal doesn't even begin to describe it. Trust me, if we had stayed another night in Vancouver, wed have gone back to eat there again. So much to choose from.

First visit. And I will be back. Very nice and friendly staff along with excellent appetizers for the price. The calamari was the best along with the crab dip. Thanks

Had the most amazing maple glazed sable fish of my life....in fact it was the best fish I’ve had in my life. Incredibly tender and bursting with flavour! Highly recommend.

Coast is one of Vancouver's finest restaurants, and this particular experience sealed for us that we will eat there on our annual Vancouver visits in the future. The food is superb, it is a beautiful restaurant, but it is the staff that makes it -- assistant manager Albert, the Chef, Alex, servers Jacob and Isabelle -- they are all absolutely outstanding.

This is a great experience that I cannot recommend too highly.

Good seafood with shellfish specialities in downtown Vancouver. Lively crowd with elevated noise level, noticed during early dinner, especially around large raw bar.

Met with friends from Vancouver to have a night out together at Coast. Food met expectations for myself, but my wife was a little disappointed. I had the seared scallops and they were amazing. My wife had the seafood linguine. Besides being generally underwhelming, the seafood was also mostly missing from her dish, and more had to be brought out from the kitchen. The restaurant itself was vibrant and busy in a good way. The service was just good, not great. Food was brought to the table at a good pace. We were never rushed. The kitchen seemed to have run out of too many things for a 6:30 seating. The halibut special was gone but we didn’t know until after our server told us all about it, and they had run out of many of the oysters from the day sheet. All in all it was a good evening, but at this price point, a few little things could have made it a great evening.

Business lunch at Coast - overall a good experience. I appreciated our server's attentiveness. Wine the smoked salmon flatbread could have benefited from a bit less time in the oven, as the bread was overly crisp and difficult to eat. Clean, well appointed space in the dining area. Fairly loud volume in the room, but not too loud to chat comfortably.

The food was incredible, the service was fantastic. Laura was probably the best server we have seen in a long time. We had my brother from the States who found this to be one of the best rrestaurants he has been in a while, My only negative is that I wished that I would have had a little bit more emphasis on our 28th wedding anniversary.

We were disappointed with the quality of food. This is the fourth visit for us, but the quality has gone down. I ordered the “fish and chips”, and it was way oily...chips limp with oil.

We ended up at Coast while visiting the area. Our server (didn’t get his name but has an English girlfriend and helped us out with Grouse Mtn info) made excellent recommendations from oysters, sablefish and the banana cake. Top notch service, ambiance and best meal on our trip! We want to come back already!
