    Really enjoyed this place. Food was great along with the service. The location is worth the visit. You get a beautiful view of the downtown city lights across the bay. Definitely a must when in the area.

    We ordered the fish tacos that were very tough. They used Sword Fish that was over cooked and didn't flake like normal fish tacos. Also the beer batter was very strong. You could actually taste the bitterness of the beer. We would have second thoughts about going back. We didn't think it lived up to the Cohn reputation.

    First time here based on a friend’s recommendation. A bit pricey but over all an excellent venue- experience. Good wine and cocktails, chips and salsa yum. Excellent seated scallops with pork belly and the absolute best seafood paella we have ever had (even compared to dishes we have had in Barcelona).

    My husband and I were celebrating Father's Day and returned to Coasterra after several years' absence. We were given an outdoor table and enjoyed the gorgeous view and cool breezes. We split the Caesar salad and the Paella for two. The Paell in particular was outstanding, filled with a delectable variety of seafood. The saffron rice was incredibly good! The serving size was quite large, so we will probably have a couple of meals from it. Our server was most helpful and pleasant. Food was brought to us in a timely way.

    Had to wait to be seated, was not able to be seated where I requested, although it is not guaranteed, I made the reservation a month in advance. Service was ok, drinks got empty, and we’re not refilled fast enough. Food was great! Shoutout to the chefs and the back of the house. Front of the house, step it up.

    A crinkled up wire about 5 inches long was baked into the cheese appetizer. The staff was apologetic, but honestly it was disgusting. I would not eat there ever again.

    We made reservations several weeks in advance, and requested a bayside table to celebrate our wedding anniversary, something we have been unable to do for over 5 years. Initially, we were seated in the back, where it was noisy and with a view primarily of the "barge" which obstructs the city view we enjoy so much at Coasterra. My wife requested that we be reseated, and they were happy to accommodate us. Our server Anali was one of the best servers we've ever had at any restaurant, and Chelsea and the other manager on duty stopped by to chat, offer congratulations on our anniversary and ultimately made us fell at home in their restaurant. The food was fantastic, we never felt rushed and overall had one of the best evenings of dining we've had in a long time. No mean feat, given the current environment of staff shortages and rude patrons. The evening was bittersweet in a way as our parents (Point Loma residents for 50+ years) used to take us to Coasterra several times each year, but recently moved to assisted living and were unable to join us. But the Coasterra team made us feel so comfortable we ultimately enjoyed an evening we won't soon forget. Bravo Coasterra, keep up the good work!

    Was my sister bday. The waitress didn’t ask if we want dessert or 3rd drink just brought us the bill ans left. The place wasn’t busy and half of the tables were empty so can’t blame it on been busy with other guest or wanting to turn the table around for reservations.

    Really nice restaurant with amazing views and service. I came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and it was worth every penny. The lighting was just perfect, not too loud and with an amazing overlook on the harbor. I asked for a window seat and booked months ahead just to make sure. would definitely come back.
