Expensive but beautiful. Food was very good. Reservations were cooperative
Even thought it was a bit stormy outside - inside was light and cheerful. Great ambience. There were three of us, we all had something different - all excellent. The service was outstanding!
Very fresh food, even towards the end of the night!
one of the few quiet restaurants left in Santa Monica, the location and ambiance are superb.
After coming for lunch many times over the last several years, I still am very happy with all aspects of Coast. Service is always exceptional, food is always exceptional, and ambiance is peerless. Thanks to all who make this happen.
I always love the atmosphere. The food was off this Sat. night. The calamari arrived cold. The seafood platter mussels were weird tasting. I had the fish of the day. It tasted muddy. The desserts were good.
waiter didn't seem to care./remember my food allergies
Such a lovely setting. James our server was fantastic. Good was sooooo good. Loved every minute !!!
Great breakfast cafe .... with amazing views of the beach....service is world class and quality of the breakfast perfect
Wonderful waiter! He made New Year’s Eve special!
The only chicken dish was very dry and small portions. Over priced and not memorable-
Thirty dollar oatmeal. Enough said
The waiter didn’t rush us at all. We enjoyed sitting on the patio. Food is good, but a bit expensive.
It seemed I had a bad shrimp ... my tummy’s been bad ever since my salad w shrimp ...
A visiting relative asked for a dinner on the beach. We booked Coach for a Saturday night. Our oysters -- after a long wait -- were grainy and off-tasting. We were told that the wait was so long because they had to be individually shucked. How else would they be shucked! After another very long wait we were served our entree salads, which were adequate but hardly noteworthy and extremely overpriced. We'll be looking for another beach-side restaurant in the future.
Food is mediocre and expensive. Ambiance, space and location is 5 star.
Service was excellent and attentive. We were not rushed and enjoyed the meal very much. Not sure why Open Table was notified we did not show up but I responded we were there so I assume it was just an oversight or error that did not record our presence.
Really enjoyed our early dinner. The mini Apple pie was fantastic. Great ocean view.
Lovely place and good service, but food didn't love up to prices, and drinks very overcharged.
We went to Shutters on the Beach years ago and went back for the exact same dinnner this year. Just as we remembered it! Best lobster roll and red velvet cake by Susi.
I thought the food lacked flavor and style. The $14 house salad was a plate of just lettuce. Not one piece of tomato or cucumber or carrot. Just lettuce. The artichoke appetizer was not memorable and the accompanying sauce was extremely heavy. The fish special smelled of being fishy. All of this comes with a high price tag.
Best lobster sandwich I have ever had. Service was great. Beautiful ambiance
First time there and it was amazing. James gave great service. We will be back because of him. He made the food and the overall experience unforgettable. We will definitely return when in the area.
Excellent lunch with friends. Lovely location on the beach. Relaxed atmosphere. Great service and food was exactly what we all wanted.
Pros: The view of the sunset! Staff was also nice and sat us by the window.
Cons: The food was underwhelming... I expected a little more for the price. Also, it was my dads birthday and I mentioned it in the reservation. They did not offer to bring out a dessert for us to sing to him, as I have noticed other restaurants have done. I would have even paid for the dessert if they had offered it.
Great food, friendly service, and fabulous view, what else needs to be said.
Beautiful setting and overall great experience on a sunny day
Always excellent. Dependable. I will be back. Wonderful to sit by a window with a view of the beach.
Wife's birthday late breakfast/early lunch. We hadn't been and just wanted to check it out. This was during the week and before lunch hour, things (like noise level) could be different later on or weekend.
We ordered items we have at other higher end venues - fared well.
Waiter knew his business, offered suggestions and checked in at regular intervals.
For elderly or ADA patrons there's valet parking ($9) with validation. Otherwise, a flight of stairs or through the hotel.
The place is beautiful, in front of the beach, the service very good, fast and nice, the food was not good, we order the ceviche and the swordfish, we return the sworffish.
El lugar es bellisimo, enfrente del mar, una vista muy bonita, el servicio super amable, simpaticos y rápido, la comida no muy buena, pedimos un ceviche y un pez espada. No estaban nada buenos, yo no me pude comer el pez espada. Los postres se veían muy ricos.
It was a warm night in Santa Monica so my husband and I decided to have a casual dinner at the Coast which is very close to where we live. We enjoy the casual, beach-like atmosphere and watching people go by on the nearby walkway. Also the Ferris Wheel is brightly lit up and fun to watch. Good food and great atmosphere. The valet parking was jammed up but we got through it.
Beautiful beachfront and Santa Monica Pier views. Lovely hotel lobby. Food was tasty and fresh. We came here for the ambiance and healthy menu. Service was spotty and slow - our waitress was always pleasant, but just not attentive. Will give it another try.
Colleen the lady who waited on us made this our best anniversary ever. She is so kind and knowledgeable and efficient; friendly and professional, even taking our picture for us. Thank you so very much, Colleen! You’re the best!
We got a great table by the window. The food was superb. The best Ahi my husband ever ate. Everything was so fresh and presented beautifully. We relived the day we were married there 5 years ago today. Thank you for a wonderful experience
Ate lunch here with my family (2 adults an 2 kids). Very relaxed, great service, lovely views and the food was delicious. It is a bit on the pricey side but I think worth it for the quality of the food.
Stayed at shutters 2 years ago and dined at the restaurant on several occasions, so decided to go back, thinks it’s better for breakfast/brunch but still a nice experience, especially the view of the beach/sea
Ambience was incredible. Immediately felt relaxed and at home. It’s a visual feast and coastal done to perfection! Amazing for lunch
For the cost, it was an ok experience. I emailed in advance to say it was a special 21st birthday occasion but I had to ask & putting a candle into a $12 piece of cake was hardly an effort for a $300 overall charge. I got the distinct impression of complacency because of the reputation of the hotel that customers are happy to pay the prices for less than optimum service.
Excellent blend of cuisines and exquisite service and wines.
Great ambience with an elegantly casual atmosphere. Nice views out to the beach promenade. Service was friendly and responsive but not intrusive. Great food at fair price.
