ホテルからも近くガイドさんからもおススメしてもらったので18時に予約して行きました。土曜日だったということもあり、たくさんの人で賑わっていました!
2人でシーフードタワーとロール寿司をシェアしました。
シーフードタワーは見た目はとても良かったのですが、お味は少し「おおあじ」な感はありました。
追加でシーフードフェットチーネを頼んだらこちらはとても美味しくてペロリといただきました。
サーブしてくれたスタッフの方は忙しかったのにも関わらずいつも笑顔で素敵でした。
さすがバンクーバーでした。

I was with three people from Chicago. They wanted to experience West Coast fresh and amazing food. Unfortunately two of the halibut specials were over cooked and delivered on cold plates. The other two meals were described by my guests just OK. I was truly disappointed as the atmosphere and food have always been described to me as amazing.

We came for my mom's birthday. The food was excellent. It seemed as though the staff were a bit overwhelmed with a few large groups that they were serving. They did go out of their way to bring a dessert for her with a candle which was nice. We would definately return.

We had a lovely time at Coast in our last night of our vacation. We took a girls trip and we’re going to a show our last night. We found coast at happy hour and enjoyed some delicious happy hour drinks. Then we decided to stay and enjoy dinner. The seafood was excellent. I recommended the crab dip appetizer! My favorite! Patio is wonderful atmosphere for our last night of our girls vacation. Also the service was excellent! She was very attentive and helped us navigate the menu with lots of suggestion to improve our experience.

The restaurant was very attractive and the restaurant had good reviews. The food, however, was just average at best.
My dinner partner had a Sea Bass special and enjoyed it. I had the Lobster and Shrimp Gnocchi. The lobster was so tough that I couldn’t remove the meat from the tails. I was struggling and the waiter offered to help. It was so tough he couldn’t get it out either. Finally, he wrested the meat out and said it must have been over cooked, but made no offer to replace it. The gnocchi was tough as well. Disappointed.

Food was great! The service was slow though, we waited a long time before finally finding someone who we could ask to bring us water. Once the ordering began it was okay though, think they just forgot about us in the beginning.

Amazing experience ! My husband and I celebrated our eight year wedding anniversary started off with happy hour drinks calamari carpaccio & oysters at the bar which were amazing. The servers were attentive and fast and made you feel very homely in an upscale dining venue. For dinner we had the miso glazed sablefish and the scallops with pork belly- both melted in our mouth- outstanding. We also received complimentary champagne and a dessert flambé to top off the experience. Can’t wait to go back!

Amazing food! We had oysters, then shared mussels and a sea bass entree. The quality of the sea food was exceptional and perfectly cooked. Great service and we can't wait to go back. Would love to try their happy hour since there prices are a little higher than we would regularly spend but for special occassions and treating yourself I highly recommend.

Food was outstanding.
Key lime pie for dessert was very large serving and had too much whipping cream on top.
Service was good.
Noise level was very high causing our group to raise their voices in order to have a conversation
Will still visit again

We had a very wobbly and low table for our party of 6, it felt unsafe to simply lean on the table.

The food was good, but we all felt the evening was tainted by the server who was too "familiar " in dealing with us. Too many comments unrelated to his tasks of ordering and serving.

Particularly when I mentioned that I had minimal sauce on my Sable Fish compared to others who had the same meal. He questioned me and pointed his finger at the teaspoon size dollop, I had to point out that my neighbor had 10 times the sauce, which looked like an appropriate serving.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate both our birthdays and had the most amazing time! Our server was funny and friendly but let us have our space, the food was unreal ( we just shared a bunch of things and ordered as we went) and were not disappointed with anything. We made a pact at the restaurant that this was going to be officially our special occasion place.

The food was mediocre. We got the Coast Tower and the seafood was not very fresh and lacked taste. For example, the dungeness crab legs had no flavour at all. The service was good but the food was a disappointment.

I sat for 15 minutes before anyone touched my table. I ordered a variety of oysters and when I asked where they were from I got an exasperated “west coast” from the server. After the confusion initially of who was my server, I still had to flag down a server for every thing I needed from side plate to more wine to bill. The creme brûlée was terribly over cooked, brought it to the servers attention, all I got was a shrug and an eye roll. Food as a whole was underwhelming.

They provide quality ingredients. Crab cake has no fillers. Almost as good as in Seattle. Plenty of fresh clams in curry plate. Has sea urchin that was not available in high end Japanese restaurant.
Sablefish is fresh. Sauce flavor might be a bit heavy but that is personal taste. Food delivery is real fast & efficient without any rush at all. Very impressive. Service is great. Kept replenishing water.

A business colleague and I attended for lunch, both planning to have the $9.95 lunch special, however when the server reviewed the daily specials with us, I decided to go for a halibut dish. It was described as halibut wrapped in sopprasetta and served with salad (I expected a good sized leafy salad). The server did not offer up the price and it is awkward to ask, particularly in front of a business associate. Expecting the cost to be in the $30 range, I decided to splurge on this option as it sounded like a very special and healthy dish. The salad turned out to be a small scoop of quinoa with no greens whatsoever (hardly the carb-free lunch I was planning). The halibut was good, but was a small portion and slightly overdone. To say that I was shocked when the bill came would be an understatement: $42 for the halibut special! This is an absolutely outrageous price for a small lunch-sized meal that I could easily make myself at home for a fraction of the price. I have been disappointed by the mediocre food at this restaurant one too many times, and do not intend to return. I must end on a positive note, however, in that our server was excellent, and I do commend his top notch service.
