Really enjoyed the fresh fish choices. We ordered Chilean sea bass and halibut and both had side dishes we had never tried. Shane was especially helpful in making suggestions about both items on the menu and off.

It's always my downtown go-too restaurant. I've consistently had good experiences at the COAST.
Great food with a good selection for all, unique ambiance - (it's special without being uncomfortably so), with well trained, yet friendly staff.

On Saturday we went to Coast with friends and enjoyed four delicious meals and wine. The seafood was sensational, being perfectly cooked and fresh. We all can recommend the sablefish, salmon and the scallops main entres. For appetizers we had the clams in coconut curry broth and our friends had a crab cake (all crab!) Two beautiful desserts - try the banana caramel cake as it is amazingly light and flavorful. Our friends enjoyed a lava cake. Our server, Brandon was especially helpful and very attentive.

Seafood lovers delight. My husband and I had the Salomon flatbread and the crab cake. Excellent. We shared a seafood tower which we loved. Our favorite was the wine from the region. Yummy. Our server was personable and efficient. If we lived in Vancouver we would definitely go back

COAST was once one of the most innovative seafood restaurants in Vancouver. No longer. It is still good, but not remarkable. It's past its better. The food was fine, but unimaginative. Nothing we had was poor, but nothing was WOW!, either. And for about $160 for three people (not including our drinks), there should be some WOW! COAST used to impress every time, now it's resting on its laurels. Location and décor still great, but overall experience and dining were mediocre.

Delicious sablefish & snapper however very small portion size. The green beans were too crisp. We decided to go elsewhere for dessert. Disappointing for the high cost of the meal.

I had the coast nicoise salad. It was to come with tuna, potatoes and poached eggs. I received lots of lettuce, half a tiny potato, half a boiled egg and five 1/4" slices of tuna. I'm not a big eater but I was still hungry after this meal. The dressing was delicious.

It was a great experience for a casual brunch out. It was great value for money and everything was nice, I just feel that the salad was slightly overdressed but for the value it just fine.

We loved the reviews and wanted to check it out. Just like the reviews said crab cakes were amazing. Actually everything we had was delicious. Didn’t love the location of our table and thought the three gloomy hostesses at the front should be trained to be happier people. Barbour server was top notch and have to say we’d go again.

I have been to Coast many times for lunch but this is the first time for supper. The occasion was my wedding anniversary. Everything about the evening was perfect. I had a steak choice from black and blue next-door and my wife had a lobster dish as that is what she had on our wedding day at supper at the reception.

Special mention should be made for our waiter, Brandon. Perfectly attentive without being intrusive and very engaging when we talked at the end of the meal about our evening.

Looking forward to my next dining experience with you

Great service but the food is just not worth it. Small portions on the food that matters (I.e sablefish) and big portions on the food no one cares about(I.e potatoes). I’m not looking to cheap out but give me some fish that Isn’t gone in 3 or 4 bites.

Despite a 45 min wait for our food (understandably due to it being the busiest day of the year for brunch), service was surprisingly gracious and exceeded expectations. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, and generously brought over complimentary amuse bouches and coffee (and mimosa refills) for the table while we waited, and gave us immediate notice that the kitchen was backlogged. The food itself was delicious and good value, despite a slightly lighter than expected portion of lobster in the Mother’s Day special eggs benny (definitely not a full half lobster tail). The smoked salmon and avocado eggs benny came with four toast points and generous portions of salmon. The vegetarian benny from the $10 menu was nicely constructed, and the hollandaise was fresh, balanced and velvety. Definitely would recommend and come back soon.

There were four of us for dinner. three meals were excellent and one was poor. I knew one of our group did not like some seafood and I suggested the steaks were excellent. She got an undercooked and very tough steak and the shrimp that came with it were gritty. I tasted both and agreed. She would not let me send it back due to the social situation we were in.

I find both Black and Blue and Coast to be very noisy (not energetic!)and it is difficult with older family.

I must say that having feedback geared towards positive reviews is also a little misleading.

The atmosphere was welcoming. Very lively yet inviting. The minute you walk in, the aroma of sea food fills the resturant. Our server was very friendly, helpful, and professional. She made great recommendations for our party as well as offered to setup custom platters gor us. Half of our party took advance of the limited quantity dinner special. For a very good price, it includes an appetizer, a main course (full lobster or crab), and a very large portion desert. My kids enjoyed some well prepared kids meal and the other patrons were not offened with kids in the mix. The sea food were all fresh and cooked well with good presentation. The quality of the food well justified the price.

Fantastic table looking down on the bar from the second floor. Service was good but so many different people involved things were missed like a bread order and a drink. The food was just ok. We’ve been there before and it was awesome, this time it felt too heavy. We had crab cakes and then miso cod. I prefer my fish with rice, the mashed potatoes are a very heavy side. I found the crab cake greasy. We shared a key lime pie that could have served a family of 6 it was so big. I think the food needs a revamp in the lighter direction. The halibut special sounded great but wrapped in bacon and The tortellini accompaniment just didn’t do it for me.
