Love the food, although my partner found it with too much onion. But that's different for everyone I guess — I'm fine with them.

The brunch main dishes we had were amazing. I can't think of any reason why they'd price the dishes under $20 they are wayyyy better than other places we've been to.

Great service from the server; she was amazing. Wasn't expecting this many choices for a glass of water — sparkling or still, tap or bottled but it's great to have them.

Jazz is there in the background. Classy, not some cliche Christmas sh** which is a huge plus. Some might find it too loud but we liked it. Not a lot of people there on a Sunday morning so some music eased things up a bit.

Exceptional cuisine, gourmet preparation, and attractively displayed, we had an outstanding meal at the Coast Restaurant. Tasty starter, amazing beet salad, trio of sauces on the seafood entree, we were more than satisfied then wowed by the pastry chef's carrot cake. Appreciated the commendable service, given ample attention, we were there pre- theatre and did not feel rushed.

Albert Chee - Operations Manager - and the team at Coast make you feel very welcome. Menu is excellent with a wide variety to choose from. Appy's and entree's presented very well and they offer an extensive wine list. Highly recommend for any occasion and easy walking distance from any hotel in the downtown core.

Made reservations for Coast for Saturday early evening. When we walked in, right away we noticed the restaurant was extremely noisy. This was not going to be an easy listening meal. Our waiter gave ok service like a waiter from White Spot. Never introduced himself. Never went through the menu or asked if we were familiar with the menu. Quite obvious was not experienced like other Glowbal restaurant waiters. Oh I'm wrong he gave a couple that came in a little later that was seated next to us top service because the manager seem to know the gentleman. Don't get me wrong the food was fantastic, value for your money was great, big portions. But the ambience is not for a cosy date or if your looking for a kind of personalize service. Definitely like Black and Blue next door. ( Glowbal group )

The service and food was great. I hesitated to book here because the volume of the music has been far too loud on other occasions. It was at a level that we could hold a conversation and I loved the choices.

Very underwhelming. The food was good but there are a lot of good seafood restaurants. The sushi roll we tried was good, very fresh. The crab cake had a strong mayonnaise flavor, rather than crab. Same with the clam chowder; very little seafood flavor.

From the time we made the online reservation to the time we left, we were treated extremely well and graciously by Brandon. He anticipated every question and made superb recommendations at every stage, especially the wine pairing.
The food, as expected, was superb. The sauces, the combinations, the menu options, and the sides, were all spectacular.

Coast is situated in the heart of downtown Vancouver so it has great access for visitors to the city staying nearby. The ambience is lively with a good “buzz” from the patrons. Food was served hot and delicious and relatively quickly, but without the sense of trying to hurry you out. The menu selection was good with something for everyone. Not inexpensive, to be sure, but worth it for a good meal with someone special.

This was my second time at The restaurant and it was no like the first visit.
We ordered the calamari for appetizer and it was very good, the clam chowder was very thick and with over cooked clams that were very chewy, then we waited about 40 for our main meal to arrive because our waitress forgot to add it to the order. By the time the crab came on it felt as if it had been cooked hours before and then dipped in hot water to warm it up. By the time the dessert came in we literally had to just chug it down because we had tickets to a show and we didn’t want to be late.

Our waitress is not professional enough. When giving us the handkerchief, she would open it and drop it over our lap. When placing our drinks, it was a little rough making the clunk sound on the table. Also, we were paying partial of the bill with a gift card. So after she came back with a new bill for paying the difference, she said "Here you go. You will have to do the math.". Obviously, I know she is talking about the gratuity. But I find it inappropriate to even mention something like that to the customer. Otherwise, the food is good. Downstairs is bar area, so don't expect it is that quiet even if you sit upstairs overlooking the bar.
