We started with drinks and appetizers at the bar. Excellent martini and a Malbec that we enjoyed while splitting a generous portion of a cup of seafood chowder.
My date had the Shrimp and Grits while I had the black and blue sirloin that was cooked just as I requested.
Never fails to be a fabulous dining experience.... Long time diner, it is a go to restaurant for virtually any occasion
Great food service and ambience. Best restaurant in the area
Fabulous! As always!
It was a special occasion and everyone made a supreme effort for us.
Thanks you so much!!
Really great place. Food was great and the waiter we had was awesome.
Would recommend this place
Coastal Grill never disappoints. I have never had a bad meal or poor service. It is truly a place of peace and enjoyment - good food, good drinks, friendly staff and wonderful service.
Excellent as always
It is always a treat to come to Coastal Grill. From the parking to the leaving, all is well every time.
Our go to when we don't want to wonder how our meal is going to be. Best in the city.
A great way to celebrate a birthday
Specials were outstanding. Mussels were amazing. Service was spot on. Acorn Squash was only miss.
WONDERFUL!!! We love this restaurant and the staff.
Beautiful atmosphere with an intimate feel. The food and service were very good. Just what we were looking for on New Years Eve.
New Years, it was good. It’s probably the best you can get in Virginia Beach
We always enjoy going to the Coastal Grill, and being there early on New Year's Eve put us in the bestie mood. Great food, except the Acorn Squash just does not compliment seafood.
Excellent service and outstanding cuisine! This is the place to take special guests and (always) family!
Typically superior service and menu in celebration of my wife’s birthday at one of our all time favorite venues. Kohler our waitress gave us cheerful and professional service from start to finish. Great drinks, appetizers, entrees, dessert, and ambience. The goat cheese appetizer is a perennial favorite, and they were accommodating in splitting our Classic Wedge Salad for us. I had the whole bronzini, which was spectacularly flaky and buttery, with a side of their famous warm acorn squash. My wife loved her fried shrimp, which, though available as an appetizer, is in ample amount for an entree. Creme Brûlée and espresso/cappuccino topped a very special evening. Of course we’ll be back.
Thank you for the perfect birthday dinner! Everything from food to service were amazing.
Why can't they get their wine temperatures right? When I ordered a glass of Chardonnay, it was served WAY too cold, about 35 degrees. And when I had a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, it was served at room temperature, way too WARM!
So, overall, their food is pretty good, the service is fine, prices are rather high, but my biggest complaint is that Coastal Grill does not treat wine with respect. I'd recommend dining out somewhere else.
Outstanding, as usual. Absolutely enjoyed it. We will be back.
Short staffed and our order was wrong as was the table next to us. Took way to long for beginning drinks. Been here multiple times and discouraged because it was for a special occasion.
We had an absolutely wonderful dinner, and the service was outstanding!
We arrived at 7:30pm for our reservation & they were already out of the Bronzini special.
Consistently excellent food!
Such a wonderful meal! It was my birthday and absolutely delicious! Our server, Monika, was outstanding—we could not have asked for a better meal anywhere! Being foodies, we were totally thrilled with our meal, and will return again soon!!!
Food and service were excellent. Great energy in the restaurant. Elegant and fun. Pricey but you get what you pay for.
We had an outstanding meal and experience. The Coastal Grill remains one of our long time favorites in the area.
Every time we have visited The Costal Grill it has been amazing. One of our most favorite restaurants. Our waitress was delightful and extremely attentive. There were four in our party and we are looking forward to our next culinary experience at the coastal grill.
Food is consistently good. Fish size seems to vary each time so not sure about portion, but always a delicious taste.
Always consistent and one of the best
Always the very best food and service. The staff is super friendly. This is a locals favorite. When I have out of town family or guest they always want to go back to Coastal Grill.
excellent food and service! we had an amazing time!
We arrived a bit early and had a drink at the bar. Matt was the perfect bartender. He was social and very good at anticipating his customers needs. He was also good at connecting the group at the bar and contributed just enough to keep the conversation going but was also constantly working. We were then seated at our table. Our waitress Danielle was great. The bread was fresh, crispy and warm. The wedge salad was delicious as were the sweet potato fries. I ordered the NY strip and although it was tasty, I prefer a filet Mignon. My only complaint is that the menu is somewhat limited. The ambiance and noise level was excellent and we really enjoyed our evening.
Coastal Grill is never a disappointment! Excellent wait staff, bartender, environment, valet....5 ⭐️!!
One of the most dependably excellent restaurants in Hampton Roads. Always a treat to dine there.
Very nice great food
Simple, amazing food, good quiet environment, great helpful service. Honestly such a great place I can’t believe I haven’t been there more, or known more about it.
Got the chicken. It was not tasty at all. It also was not cooked enough and was small..not much meat at all. The squash was very small in comparison to what we have gotten in the past. My husband had duck and he enjoyed it but my dish left me not wanting to go back for a while.
