Great service. You can tell the servers love their jobs and the whole staff works as a team. Impressed with how cohesively they worked as a staff. Our seafood chowder did not have any seafood in it (bottom of the pot) and so they apologized and did not charge us for the soup. Loved the pasta- every element was perfectly cooked and well executed. Interesting desserts.

The restaurant was less than 50% occupied when we arrived for our 8:30 dinner reservations on a Friday night. Our server finally came to take our drink order after being seated for about 10’minutes. We ordered cocktails and dinner requesting bread with our meal. Our food was delivered about 10 minutes after receiving our drinks with no bread. Mean while the manager? came by checking in and we again requested bread with our meal. Neither the manager nor the waitress ever asked us for another cocktail or filled our water glasses. Our server finally brought the bread about 3/4 way though dinner. However she brought the tab - adding a 14% tip for herself. Never again would we even entertain the idea of dining at Coastal. The food was mediocre and service was poor.

I’ve been coming to this restaurant for a few years. It has changed names several times since I started and the price keeps going up while the novelty of the small plates keeps going down.
I wish they’d go back to what they used to be before.

We came for Sunday Brunch - were seated very quickly outside with a great view of the ocean. We got bottomless drinks and loved both the buffet brunch set up and the small tasting places (which were included in the price)!

Went to Coastal for Easter Brunch. The location is great right across the street from the ocean. Food was decent unfotunatle our sitting was at 2pm and brunch was until 3 so we could see they were running out of food. The best part was our server Sarah she was really good. The food was really expensive for what we were able to eat based on the time. Next time will do brunch at home.

We had a great time. The food was good, the service was very good and sitting outside across the street from the ocean was terrific. Our waiter, Anthony was helpful, friendly and attentive. The manager, Mark was very active in the restaurant checking in on every table and engaging in conversation with most guests. We will definitely go back.

Was delayed overnight due to weather, resturaunt was close so gave it a try. The meal was great and the service out of this world. When I asked for blue cheese olives in my martini originally said they did not have, waiter on his own found blue cheese from kitchen and stuffed them himself. This was a great find and next time I'm in Ft. Lauderdale will go there.

Staff seem harried and confused. Automatic 18% gratuity on a table of 4 was a bit off-putting.

The view outside was beautiful but the traffic noise is deafening. Our server was one of the worst I have ever experienced. Here is part of our conversation: Me: “How is the Amalfi Shrimp prepared?” Server: “It’s cooked.” Me: “Exactly how is it cooked?” Server: “In a pan.” This was not a joke! It was all down hill from there. The food was mediocre at best. What really angers me is that a 18% service charge is automatically added to your check. We are generous tippers when it is deserved, but there is no way we would have left the amount of tip that was added to our bill for very poor service and food. Needless to say, we will NOT be going back!

We wanted to try this restaurant since it was new. We are locals to Fort Lauderdale Beach and like to support local restaurants. We ordered several items to share. We had the Amalfi shrimp as a starter which was okay, nothing special about it. Then we shared the Ricotta Gnocchi which was outstanding, best gnocchi we have had in South Florida. We had also ordered the vegetable piadina which we ended up taking home and enjoying the next day. It was delicious, outstanding crust. We met the Manager, Mark, he was excellent and very knowledgeable about their wine menu. We enjoyed a nice Super Tuscan, Veneroso, made with organic grapes. Overall it was a fabulous experience and we will definitely return.

Didn't know they include an 18% 'service charge' in your bill but saw it mentioned in very small type on the bottom of the menu. The bill also leaves a space for 'gratuity' and last time we went I tipped on top of this! Not this time. We decided to give Coastal another try. Ate inside and the A/C was really cold, so take a jacket. Food was good this time as was the service, but the built in 18% service charge bothered me. The clams with spaghetti was excellent as was their chicken meal.

Free valet parking for restaurant patrons which was nice. We ate outside this night, facing the traffic which added to the noise that everyone was talking loud, even yelling when motor cycles went by. There was only one inside table with people and the outside area was full...too full that I had to ask someone to move his chair to let me out. Coastal winds made it feel colder than the temperature...there were two heaters on but not enough.

The waiter mixed up two items on our meals...including serving us an incorrect dessert. Also had to ask them to take our dishes away and to get the bill. Food wasn't very good...won't be going back. Cost was about $100 for the two of us. This restaurant was called Beauty and the Feast a year ago, and something else before that.

My girlfriend and I tried the restaurant in the Atlantic Hotel next to the Conrad on the Beach for dinner one night after checking for the closest Italian chef. It was a little noisy during cocktail hour, so we chose to fine al fresco, enjoying an amazing ocean front view at dusk. We were pleasantly suprised by our knowledgable server Geo, who slowed the pace of our dinner with friendly stories of each specialty dish on the menu. Warmly kind and encouraging, we took his reccommendations. We were rewarded with the best meal we experienced on this trip. You'll be thrilled with their specialty dish, Red Snapper served with roasted sweet peppers over a bed of sauteed kale. Its incredible! The delicious fresh baked bread was served with a huge baked garlic clove in extra virgin olive oil. Try the extra large meatball appetizer for a treat! Scallops were a 10. Finish your meal with their decadant chocolate mousse cake served with a generous scoop of Nutella ice cream. Yum! The manager stopped by to ensure our total satisfaction. We assured him we would return. Great for foodies!

First off, the food was great but this is about all this place has going for it. It was a windy stormy evening so everyone was inside and the decibel level was just unreal. I cannot believe that they have not installed some panels, curtains, carpet, anything to absorb the noise. Two people in my party, independently of each other, commented that it felt like a cafeteria. The waiters were a pain. They kept introducing each other and then they switched out and we got someone else again. Also they were very pushy about getting their food orders in. They pressured us to order before they even brought our wine and drinks. I ordered a margarita and they forgot about it. My husband's main course, which was the special of the day, was also forgotten. My friends' clam pasta was very salty. All in all not a stellar experience.

Dinner was fantastic!!! Had the yellowtail snapper and appetizer special. The only thing I can say is they need to update the restaurant. Feels like a typical restaurant in a hotel instead of a special place. The quality of the food and service requires that unique, trendy feeling. So glad we went. Food exceeded our expectations.

Octopus was probably the best I've had in years - perfectly cooked, very flavorful sauce with lots of rich flavors. The milanese fish was basically a large, firm filet covered in bread crumbs and fried - too think of a filet and too thick of breading to be great. The seafood chowder had a single piece of identifiable fish - the soup part was great - just missing the seafood. They add gratuity automatically matter the size of the party but dont point it out - can imagine they gets tipped double a lot.
