Classic, consistent, upscale cuisine is offered in a well-appointed, unpretentious setting in this top-notch nosherie. The beautiful bar invites easy conversation and casual dining. Located on the affluent Great Neck corridor in Virginia Beach, just three miles from the Oceanfront, Coastal Grill is as famous for what isn't on the menu as for what actually is. Owner Jerry Bryan with Executive Chef Maureen Cucchiaro and Chef de Cusine Brad Bates at the stove, offer an extensive list of "blackboard specials," always with a nice assortment of freshly caught regional seafood. This locals favorite has received critical acclaim since its inception over 25 years ago, culminating in being voted the Number 1 Restaurant by Hampton Roads Magazine. With amazing food and exemplary service, Coastal Grill is a sure bet for business dinners, special occasions, or simply unwinding after a hard day. Come celebrate with us!

    One of our favorite restaurants every time we’re home in Virginia Beach. We love to go to Coastal Grill. If we’re here for lengthy time we go multiple times it’s good.

    Dinner with friends. Food and service was great. Brian was our waiter and very attentive to our dining need. Three of us had the lamb chops which were cooked to perfection and delicious and the sauté scallops were equally as good . Carrot cake was the choice dessert of the night . Very pleasurable dining experience. We will be back soon.

    Service was slow. Portions were small and I’m basing that on American expectations. I ordered a salad that simply never came. Main courses took about 50 minutes to show up. My friend’s steak had to be sent back because it was medium well but he ordered it medium rare. There’s better places to eat for sure.

    What a gem! We were so happy to find this little piece of heaven. Service with Montana was phenomenal. My picking husband couldn’t put his fork down and my finicky daughter loved the duck. Super glad we came and enjoyed a tremendous evening with family. Will add this to our VA Beach must-do’s next time we are back in town.

    Another wonderful meal here! What really impressed me was the call I got on our way home informing me that I had forgotten my credit card AND when we arrived to the front door, the carpet immediately met my eyes, ran inside and retrieved my card for me. So sweet and much appreciated. Thank you for the care and kindness!

    Great food as always. There was a mix up on seating as the hostess tried to sit us at a high top in bar area when we had booked a standard seat but they quickly resolved that and we got the seat we requested. This is probably one of the best places to eat in the area. Food and service is always great!

    Cosatal Grill is one of our favorite places for fine dining. We were celebrating birthdays with good friends and good food. The food was delicious as always. However, there were a few things that changed five stars to four. Our waiter was not as attentive as usual. My spoon fell to the floor when he was moving dishes to and from the table. I asked for another but never got it. Water glasses were not refilled. I stopped in the ladies room as we were leaving and discovered that the light was out in the handicap bathroom. I notified the hostess as that bathroom is unusable without a light. She told me that it'd been that way for some time and they knew about it. Ooops! These are small things but should not happen at a fine dining restaurant. We will return but I hope that these small matters will be fixed.

    Best neighborhood restaurant for over 25 years and counting. Easy parking, beautiful cocktail bar with lots of seating and great wine list at every price point. Excellent selections as well. Dining room is gorgeous with large tables. Bar area has high tops as well. The food is excellent!! Numerous salads to choose from and delicious varied appetizers as well. Entries are amazing, best known for their grilled salmon- yummmm! Must try the carrot cake in bourbon sauce for dessert, you will love it!

    Food was absolutely delicious. Although a bit on the pricey side but the quality and taste was exceptional. We love the wilted lettuce salad and squash. I had the one of the specials which was flounder cooked in brown butter and orange. The fish was light and flaky and perfectly seasoned. My husband had the fried oysters which he raved about and said they were the best he had in a long time. My MIL had the salmon and she ate every bite. The service was impeccable, used dishes were quickly cleared from our table, water glasses remained topped off. Jonel was our server and she was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.
