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.
Limited menu, and average across the board. Nice place but not my favorite.
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.
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.
This restaurant is very close to being a great dinner out if they can just pay a little more attention to the food. My wife and I both had fish that came with a side of acorn squash. The Squash was huge and the fish was small. Too bad because the fish was delicious and the squash was nothing special. They need to watch how the other gourmet restaurants concentrate on presentation and portions. They've got the basics, it wouldn't take much to make a good meal great.
Other than that the interior design is wonderful, it's not too loud so you can have a nice conversation, and the service is fantastic. I hope they tweak things a bit because they are so close to having a first rate establishment.
Celebrate moving !
Had issues with inside temperature (ac wasn’t keeping up with warmer outside temperatures). Server distracted by a large group seated near our table for two. Food and atmosphere very special.
My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Coastal Grill while celebrating my birthday. I had the salmon and he had the steak. They were both excellent. I love the salmon and the wilted bibb salad. The profiteroles for dessert are another one of my favorites. The service was good and the staff was friendly.
We always have a good experience and great meals at Coastal Grill. Our favorite restaurant.
Very nice atmosphere, friendly with very good food!
Great location, nice atmosphere, valet parking - especially in the rain, great food selection, fantastic service and kid friendly. We really enjoyed taking our Florida guests there.
Always consistently good . Food and service is always
Dinner was a pleasure as always. Food was awesome and the service was very good as well.
Wonderful as always, my friends from by were impressed.
It was an okay experience. Food was not something I will crave for except for their spinach dip which I thought is the best. I feel like their menu is the smallest menu I’ve ever seen in my visits in restaurants so far but I admire the enterior design of the place. Looks elegant! Our server was nice as well.
Enjoyed the food and service
The food was delicious. I had the salmon and my sons' had the scallops and steak. The only complaint is there wasn't enough scallops on the plate! Everything was great..will come again!
A rare night at Coastal. Several entrees were sold out by the time we were sat for our 7:45 reservation. The fish was over salted. And fried scallops were inedible. When I told the server, she said several others had the same feedback. She offered to bring more oysters, but otherwise was unapologetic. This is our usual go to restaurant, but another experience like this and we will be looking elsewhere
I really did enjoy my meal, overall, but I think (for me) my plate was a bit overwhelming. I had the salmon with potatoes and the butternut squash. The salmon was beautifully cooked but the squash was a bit too sweet and large for my taste. The potatoes were rather large as well. I also enjoyed my pre-dinner salad (wilted bibb salad) and cocktail (peach tea sangria). Also, my waitress was very nice and attentive. She made me feel very welcome.
I would eat here again but the sides weren't my favorite
