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.

Tried the $15 tasting plates for the restaurant's bday celebration. The food was delicious! The assigned server could have been friendlier. But all the other staff were wonderful! We are already planning a return visit to try the brunch menu.

The food was disappointing for the price point. Really needed salt! Very bland.
Our waiter was excellent, but other staff were not well trained. Served a share dish without a spoon to distribute, couldn’t get anyone’s attention to get a spoon or to get pepper and even though we asked for salt twice we didn’t see any. The bus staff reached right over plate to fill water glass almost putting his arm in the plate.
It’s a beautiful restaurant -but not the best food or service on this night.

Caesar salad was wonderful. Nice bite to it without being overpowering. Lobster pot pie was hot and the veggies were fantastic. However, we had to work a little harder than I hoped to get at the one piece of lobster in the shell that was supposed to be the main feature of the dish. Other dishes of a similar type we've had in other restaurants made it a lot easier, sometimes taking the lobster out of the shell before serving it. Regardless, it was good experience.

We went with another couple. The food was great. We were seated at a back table so we could talk. The food was well prepared and presented. There was a nice wine menu, and the waitress was great. What more could you ask for? Very fun meal.

First time there. Very busy lunch service. The manager noticed we had been sitting for a while without service and immediately took care of us for the rest of the service. Wow. So impressed. Oh by the way, food was amazingly fresh and tasty. I'll be back. And thanks again to the guy in the jacket for the great experience.

After numerous visits for brunch & not being disappointed, I decided to try the dinner menu. Craving a seafood pasta, I settled on the lobster & shrimp gnocchi. In short, any restaurant with a modicum of self respect would be ashamed to serve the nasty bit of dried up flavourless rubber in a shell and call it fresh Atlantic lobster ! Server was accomadating & gracious with a different meal, ordered the halibut special but by the time it arrived, some 30 minutes later, I just wanted to be done with the whole experience. Meal was comped by the management. So, this was one night, my experience and maybe not the norm ? Who knows... but if that nasty lobster is a regular thing ... shame !

This was our first visit to Coast, we had a very enjoyable meal. Our waiter was most excellent, very attentive and answered all our questions, made great suggestions on menu items. I felt the noise was a little loud but the music selection was awesome. Great food

We were disappointed with our experience at this restaurant. We reserved months prior and had a tiny table stuck in a corner behind a rather large group and along a glass railing. It was very warm in the restaurant. We began with cocktails, which were good. We chose our appetizers with the assistance of our server. My salad was good and my husband's oysters, both of which were good. The problem was with the main course and the wine. Our wine was delivered by a very nice man, who knew nothing about wine, which was disappointing because we generally like to get additional insight on our selection. My husband's main course was good, the issue was with my main course. I ordered one of Coast's signature dishes, maple crusted sable fish, which was served on a bed of mashed potatoes that were cold. The plates were not delivered by our server, and we actually saw the young lady walking around the lower level of the restaurant with the plates. When our server came to check on us, he noticed that I did not seem to appreciate my meal and enquired about whether or not there was a problem. I reluctantly, with prodding from my husband told him that the mashed potatoes were cold. The server insisted on heating the sides, so disappeared with my plate. I insisted that my husband continue to eat his meal while it was warm. The server returned shortly with a new plate, including warm potatoes, the problem that ensued was that the fish was raw in the centre. We were offered a complimentary dessert to make up for the disappointing dinner that came in over $350 for the two of us. We were disappointed to say the least. Unfortunately, I don't think that we will return.

Isabell was absolutely wonderful. The food was great but the noise level was excessive and we were sat near a table where the staff knew the regular so they were yelling across the room to each other jovially.
I live Coast but I think the next birthday will be spent elsewhere or at B&B.

We ordered the seafood tower. Oysters and ceviche were just delicious, while other items such as the crab and the lobster were too cold to enjoy and quite tasteless. I am not an expert on seafood towers but I ordered them in other restaurants and they tasted better overall.
Soups were excellent, we asked for some bread on the side and apparently, that's not a thing in this restaurant so we didn't get any. Service was very good and very cordial.

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.
