This is one of the few Virginia Beach restaurants to have lasted over decades. There’s a reason for this: there is never a bad meal here, consistency of quality is amazing, and the price is reasonable.
My wife and I have eaten here many times the good was great we needed some dietary accommodations and this was no problem and the service was excellent
Ohh what a night.....
Fantastic all the way around from our arrival to departure!
From the warm valet greeting, great wine list, fantastic service and fantastic meal the four of us were thoroughly impressed!
We look forward to a return visit!
Amazing food, perfect ambience for our anniversary celebration! We will return.
Awesome evening for gratitude for our terrific neighbors! Everything was perfect... as we knew it would be.
We thoroughly enjoy dining at the Coastal Grill. The establishment offers a clean, calm decor with extremely tasteful appointments...ie.....floral arrangement and appropriate art works here and there. Knowledgeable staff who are keen to diners needs. The table settings feature REAL tablecloths and napkins....polished and gleaming stemware. Flatware is substantial and not flimsy, bent and such. The wait staff is organized...helping one another and very well trained to help the dining areas run smoothly and efficiently. This goes all the way tothe valet who deftly parks high powered autos and in a flash retrieves them upon guests exiting. It is very smart to have the same man on duty as he is completely familiar with the narrow park space.
Best of all tho, is the food. EVERYTHING is totally delicious...EVERY time!!! No matter what item is chosen, you can count on it being attractively presented., tasty and it will be hot and just simply delicious!! Dining here makes one really feel special. This is truly THE BEST place in town to dine. THANKS so MUCH for being here!!!!
Coastal is one of THE BEST restaurants in the area. We travel a great distance to dine here because the food is always perfect. The ambiance is great. The waitstaff is always friendly and accommodating. The seasonal menu items are always a treat but most especially the late spring early summer softshell crabs. We will come back again and again!
We always love our meals at Coastal Grill! Nicest people work there & do an amazing job making dining there a wonderful culinary experience. Thank you!
Lovely evening ... birthday dinner for my niece and nephew who live in the DC area, everyone loved their food and we shared each tastes of each other’s dishes to make it even more special. Every bite was a wow!
We celebrated our 32nd anniversary at Coastal Grill because it is our favorite place to enjoy a wonderful meal. The ambience and the acorn squash lures us in but the swordfish, a wonderful recommendation made by our waitress, and the rockfish was absolutely delicious. Our compliments to the chef, the staff and especially Sierra who helped make our evening delightful. Thank you!
Coastal Grill is my go-to restaurant for a special occasion or just a good dinner with friends. Service and food are the best!
Coastal Grill is our favorite restaurant!!
Coastal Grill is our favorite restaurant for everything. Quality, price, service, drinks, all are superior!
Wonderful menu selections and great service. Just wish the bar area was larger. Would like to continue to have a drink at the bar after dinner.
An outstanding meal and an attentive staff. We'll be back.
The food was FANTASTIC! Server Carolyn was great. Only downside was that the length of time in getting the food was extremely long. Although it was worth the wait, I would have preferred it to have gotten the food sooner.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area! The service and the food are outstanding not to mention the beautiful ambiance. Make sure you make a reservation if possible or you can sit at the bar.
Particularly delicious. The staff is always attentive
An exceptional restaurant where the quality of the food is exceeded only by the quality of the service. Had a reservation for 7:30 pm on a busy Saturday and we were seated promptly. Dinners were even better than we expected. Watercress served as a salad with the steak was an unexpected pleasure. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. She was impressive as she recited a long list of specials from memory and explained each one. The meal was a terrific experience. The only detraction of the evening was that some guests appeared in ratty jeans, ball caps, and sloppy shorts. Those few people did not treat it as the fine dining experience it is.
My wife and I have been here several times and it will continue to be a favored place.
Coastal Grill never disappoints. Have been going there on and off for over 20 years and it's good to see something don't change. The food, the service and dining experience is always excellent.
First time there - will definitely be back! Made reservations and the table was ready with no delay. Food selection was so good, I wanted to order everything haha
Another delicious meal at the coastal Grill. Predictably good is a virtue
Wonderful dining experience. Excellent food, friendly service. Looking forward to our next visit.
Loved the atmosphere of Coastal Grill. Perfect for a special occasion. Food was very good but not out of this world. I would go back because of the ambience as well as the food and service.
My favorite restaurant in Virginia Beach! Consistently excellent food, service and ambiance.
Good food and good atmosphere with good price. Worth the drive from to avoid restaurants by the beach.
My husband and I had dinner here on Sunday night. Our table was ready at reservation time, the waitress was knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive, and the food was terrific. We both had the seared tuna and it was delicious, prepared perfectly (rare) as requested. We do not live in the Virginia Beach area or we would put this restaurant into regular rotation. I highly recommend!
It was our 28 anniversary dinner and all was great.
This is a long standing locals favorite .. you can count on an enjoyable meal in a low key, pleasant atmosphere. The wait staff seem happy to be there with you. What more do you need?
This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in town.
Dinner was delicious and the service was wonderful! Morgan was our waitress.
Amazing restaurant! Great menu, service was nice, overall a memorable experience!
Pretty good overall. It is on the pricey side of dining when all said and done. The food is excellent and hats off to the chef.
The Coastal Grill was once again "on the ball". The food was terrific, the service was splendid, and the ambience was wonderful. The only problem I have with the dining room is that the lighting isn't conducive to reading a menu. A small keychain light or a smart phone flashlight app is a recommended accessory. We had a hummus & pita appetizer that was as good as hummus geta, a delicious Caesar salad, grilled salmon and shrimp & grits entrees. We don't like brown sugar on squash, but the kitchen served us squash without it. Once more, we'll be back.
Everything was excellent, as usual. Always a pleasure to dine at Coastal Grill.
One of our favorite go to places for special occasions. Food and service is always excellent. Don't go more than two or three times a year though. I'm in my seventies and as great as the food is I still cringe at $150 checks.
Limited menu, and average across the board. Nice place but not my favorite.
Our first time here. Beautiful! We went on 13 Feb to avoid the 14 Feb rush. Wonderful experience all around! Impeccable Valet, Hostess/Servers, ambiance, oysters on the 1/2, swordfish, 14oz NY Strip, cocktails (X dirty Kettle martini), and dessert (brownie sundae). The absolute best steak and swordfish we have ever had. The smallest details, from the bread and butter before the meal to the place settings and space between tables were perfection. Waitress was so completely knowledgeable and non-pretentious. Can’t say enough about Coastal Grill - we will return for sure!
We went to Coastal Grill for a birthday. It was easy to make reservations through OpenTable. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing, and our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being overly so. The menu was sufficiently diverse and our food arrived in a reasonable length of time. Everyone enjoyed what he/she ordered, and we're looking forward to coming again on another special occasion.
