Excellent location and space for old friends (and new ones!) to catch up, especially as we adjust to new norms. From reception to saying thanks and good bye, service was excellent. I highly recommend this coastal delight, and will be returning, soon!

Coast is a great place to gather with friends. My workout friends and I meet here for breakfast after our pilates or yoga classes and it's a wonderful way to enjoy the beach in such a lovely setting. We also take our out-of-town guests here for breakfast or lunch because the food and service are top notch and what a lovely way to take in Santa Monica beach. You are literally steps from the sand and can take a nice stroll along the beach path after your meal.

Ordered a Caesar salad, dry, dressing on side with grilled chicken.
The chicken was pink inside and the salad was drenched in dressing ( not on side) I could not get my server attention so I moved the food around while my friend ate his undercooked burger.
The beach view was lovely though.

This is a fantastic restaurant, but, CA Covid restrictions have really ruined the experience. I hope COAST fully recovers. It’s a gorgeous place!

Upon arrival we were asked if this was a birthday celebration, and we replied yes for both of us. However, that was never acknowledged by the end of the meal.
The first course was not outstanding, but acceptable, and the Thai salad was like cole slaw, a disaster.
I failed to notice that the salmon was partially raw until I attempted to eat the other half when I brought it home. I called, spoke to someone at Shutters, explaining that it resulted in an upset stomach and was advised that someone would follow up by Saturday to make a report. This never happened. Very disappointing as our prior experiences have been excellent.

Food very good, well presented and decent size portions. Our table had shrimp/lobster pasta (1/2 lobster), pizza (Margarita, and a prosciutto), and buttermilk fried chicken. All were excellent.

Coast was a perfect venue for the first eating experience out we have had since the Covid shut down - beautiful setting (the beach made the background) and the outdoor patio was quiet and comfortable. Service was great, and everyone was very careful about cleanliness. Food was good - we started with the cheese and meat platter - the in house cheeses tasted very rich and creamy. We shared the lobster roll which was not as flavorful - more bread than lobster - and the seasoning on it was a little flat. For dessert we had the cheesecake which definitely met our expectations for yumminess -

We went for brunch for a birthday. It was our first time out to a restaurant is almost a year! We loved the ambiance so much. Our server was very nice, but clearly uncomfortable Covid wise despite her double mask & shield. My food was nothing special, but my family enjoyed theirs a lot. The bathroom ran out of soap, and the floors were very slippery. I let them know so that nobody will fall.
