COAST is where fresh British Columbia seafood dazzles! COAST features a clean, contemporary design with deep turquoise tones, mosaic-tile floors and lush leather banquettes and defines a breathtaking, new Vancouver aesthetic and extends a respectful nod to historic San Francisco, home to the world’s most iconic seafood eateries.

The freshest fish, succulent shellfish and colossal seafood towers are here, 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.

We were made to feel a little uncomfortable about wanting to enjoy happy hour as well as the main menu for dining. After we were seated, 2 more families had a similar awkward encounter about not being allowed to order from the happy hour menu.

We had group of 10 for business dinner. Coast did a great job managing this large group on main menu. Accommodated last minute addition to party. Highly recommend.

It was LOUD. The waiter was great, but the wine steward was over-bearing and impatient.

The worst? I had a bad piece of shellfish and was sick, violently sick all night after.

My thought? Find somewhere better.

Veggies were cold and fish was overcooked. Mangos on desert were not even ripe, and the cake was dry. Not very impressive overall.

Food was ordinary. New England clam chowder wasn't what I was expecting, the lobster special came with bland rice, and the creme brulee wasn't particularly good, it was too thick and lacked flavor.

I am going to try to be as fair and balanced as possible here, and try to give this place the benefit of doubt due to it's relatively high rating, and recommendation of my hotel concierge.

I came to Vancouver for vacation, and to eat seafood... I mean, you're beside the ocean, it should be amazing, right?. I asked the concierge for a recommendation and she immediately suggested COAST. I googled it, and it had a 4.2/5 rating. Sounded like a plan. She cautioned me that it may be a little costly, but I've always believed in spending good money for good food.

My experience at COAST was not good. Not at all. Honestly, the appetizers were the best part, and the presentation is fantastic. However, you can only put so much lipstick on a pig.

After the appetizers, my girlfriend and I ordered a large combo platter of some kind. The folks to our right sat down after we ordered, and ordered the same thing. They received theirs first, and not by a few seconds, it was closer to 10 - 15min. Ours came out as they were finishing. Our salmon was so overcooked that our forks just made a dull thud when you tapped it with the fork. The rest of the dish's temperature reminded me of something that had sat under a heat lamp at a cheap "all you can eat" seafood buffet, in that it was tepid at best.

After dropping the platter off, the waiter basically disappeared. Drinks were empty and I wanted to send the dish back, but ultimately my girlfriend suggested that we just "eat it and go."

Quite disappointing. I am shocked by the historically high reviews and comments of others. Perhaps I came on an "off night" but I will not be coming back. I ended up at a place called Rodney's the next day. 3/4 of the price and 4 times the quality.

A surprisingly affordable and varied brunch menu for weekend dining.
Try the Seafood Tower - the presentation is fantastic along with the variety of tasty morsels.
A great place to celebrate a special event, or to simply enjoy a weekend brunch.

Visiting Vancouver from Melbourne the foodie capital of Australia we were excited to find this place. Don’t miss eating here- delicious food, great wine list and inviting atmosphere. The place hums ! Try to sit upstairs on the mezzanine and look down at the hive of activity in the centre bar and seafood area ... awesome ! The added facility of the Sushi menu and attached (but separate) eatery area also gave the place an edge - loved it all and the Spot prawns and halibut specials of the day were an extra pleasure. My husband loved his oysters and seafood linguine. You are spoilt too with the beautiful desserts. Friendly staff made the night one to remember!

Have been to different restaurants in Glowbal Group and always have good experience. First time in this restaurant but did not get the same level of service. May be I just ordered the daily lunch special which is $9.95 and a drink? The waitress just took my order and left. Her only return was when I asked for the bill.
