Coast 236 takes reservations for tables of 1-6 guests only. Sorry, service animals only.

TABLES CAN ONLY BE HELD FOR 15 MINUTES FROM ORIGINAL RESERVATION TIME.

Every coastline brings with it an air of freshness and wonder, an inspiration in every ebb and flow. Coasts can be recognizable and new … predictably unpredictable in a way that can surprise or delight. But no matter the geography, there is a familiarity and a connection. At Coast 236, the rhythm of familiarity and freshness is our inspiration. Sourcing meaningful ingredients from water and land, we passionately craft approachable coastal inspired fare with unexpected details.

    Loved sitting in the back of the patio where it was quiet and cozy. Jim, our server, was literally more gracious than I had experienced! He added all the best touches to an absolutely wonderful night out! Thank You!

    My girlfriend and I had one of the most memorable meals last night at Coast 236. We did the 9 course tasting menu and each dish was outstanding. The staff is incredible and the chef came out to speak with us. We will absolutely be back!

    This was our second trip and it did not disappoint. We again did the 6 course with wine pairing. The food definitely outshines the wines. Many of the wines were $15-20 bottles and left much to be desired. We sat outside and loved the space. We sat a little close to one of the speakers and the music was a bit loud at times. It would be better to point the speakers up instead of down at the tables, and maybe control the volume better. Service was on point and really good. Total cost for 2 people was over $400 with tip. That’s probably a bit high for what it is. I could see $250-350 for what we had. If the wine game was elevated and the ambience was slightly adjusted it would be worth the $400

    The hostess was rude. When there was confusion on our reservation time, and there were several open tables, she was unwilling to make any accommodation. Our server at the bar was great. Food was outstanding.

    The Faroe Island Salmon was superb, as were the wine and the desserts (creme brulee and pot de creme). Teagan gave us outstanding service. Everyone was so welcoming and greeted us with "Happy Anniversary!"

    The two of us had a late dinner at Coast 236. It has a wonderful minimalist interior, a very friendly and accomodating staff and the food was outstanding. God and enjoy!
