              Another excellent dinner at Coast, with terrific service. But I continue to be disappointed that there isn’t a single moderately priced bottle on their wine list.

              Service was not great. I sat at the table for quite awhile before anyone acknowledged I was there. Our original server never came over to see if everything was alright or if we wanted refills on our drinks. We finally had to ask another server and she was much better. The first server went on a break but never bothered to tell us. It was very busy but it would have been much better if the first server told us. He just disappeared. I’ll go to ONE PICO next time.

              My experience was not as I had expected. Given its a 5 star hotel, I would have expected the ambience/Restaurant seating quality to be top notch. Instead, looked like the restuarant had not been renovated in years. With regards to the food, It took hours for it to arrive at my table. However, when it arrived, it appeared to be that the restaurant compromised on the serving size. Additionally, I mistakenly ate pork, which I am not supposed to, without knowing. Lastly, I had my wedding anniversary and had mentioned in the reservation to provide some decoration like roses etc. on the table. I did not find anything like that on the table, instead I felt uncomfortable on the existing seats in the restaurant, given their quality.

              Covered patio seating has plenty of heaters to keep you warm. Celebrating a friend's birthday and we split the salmon tartar w/homemade chips, a cesar salad and prosciutto pizza, and it was plenty to split 3 ways. Food was delicious, including the red velvet cake, and service was great. I'm so happy I thought of Coast for a birthday lunch celebration, as I hadn't been in a long time, but will definitely be going back.

              I’ve been coming here for a long time and should’ve given them the superlative rating a while ago. The location is unparalleled, the ambience is wonderful including the attention to detail of everything aesthetic. However, what has impressed me the most is how experienced and kind the staff is. Everyone -from valet to hostess and waiter- demonstrates how carefully the staff is chosen for the work they do… this is perhaps a reflection of the company’s culture. I always feel respected, taken care of, treated with kindness. I would go back over and over. There’s no other place for me to enjoy unequaled ocean views, an atmosphere that is both real AND sophisticated, great service and delicious food.

              Had a wonderful thanksgiving dinner. Food was fine (don't miss Susie cakes for dessert: fabulous); service was so great and gracious. We sat outside with view of the ferris wheel which just made our night. Our server was o great. Can't remember his name. This place is expensive ($24. cocktail) but worth it for the special setting and great experience.

The food flavors were very balanced, delicious and fresh tasting. Only mishap was we didn't get our bread basket but all was fine. The drinks were fresh and yummy. We will definitely eat there again. The atmosphere is so lovely for a holiday meal.

              Great meal and excellent service. Would definitely go back. Two things to know—it’s very expensive (no surprise given the location), and they count their interior covered patio as “outdoors.” You can’t assume that just because you reserved a table outdoors you’re going to get a table outdoors.

              Having lunch in a nice setting is good but the food needs to be up to par with it. Mocktails were really good! But Caesar salad tasted like commercial dressing, no Parmesan also on it. The batter for the calamari was really basic. Wagyu burger was nothing more than a good burger et finally buratta wasn’t authentic, tasted like a fresh cheese, not even creamy in center. Next time I’ll spend 155$ somewhere else

              I had the Caesars salad and Lobster Roll which were both great. Sit by the sidewalk to enjoy the view

              Our server for the evening was Deena and she was absolutely lovely. She had recommended two different wines and both were stellar. She made the whole dinner experience just wonderful.

              We had a most wonderful dinner outside at Coast! Coast has always been the place where our family went on all special occasions, especially our girls' graduations. We were celebrating our 40th High School reunion and my birthday with 4 friends who had arrived from the east coast and just had the best time. Our Server Jesse was probably one of the top 5 servers I have had of all time! He is a very talented and lovely server who truly made our dining experience and celebration of my birthday so very meaningful and memorable. Thank you Coast and Jesse! Highly recommend going to Coast and eating outside on a lovely California evening!

              Shutters remains a lovely location and friendly atmosphere in our re-entry to our new reality during this stage of the pandemic. I appreciate the protocols in place to ensure a feeling of comfort and safety and the continued beautiful ambience and excellent cuisine and service. I choose not to compare current reality to the past but be present and grateful for now! Thank you.

              Food good, but some excellent dishes from DineLA not on menu. Wine mark-up over retail outrageously steep.

              Absolutely love Coast! From the hostesses who saved a perfect table for us to the great food, impeccable prompt service to being sheltered just off the boardwalk it was a perfect warm Sunday afternoon lunch. I had the salmon plate and my husband had a scrumptious Bloody Mary and eggs Benedict. Couldn’t have been better. Just needs more parking other than valet.

              It was perfect. The hostess was terrific. All the servers made us feel special. The outside beach ambiance with the sun and view of ocean was just marvelous. And we enjoyed an intimate time. We will return.
