Went for lunch. Made reservations because of Whale Festival. It became crowded but not overly. The food was exceptional. I had the Tri tip tacos and clam chowder. The butter cake desert was the best part. It was pricy but worth it.
I will get curbside in the next week or so.
A little bit loud, but the food was great! Our waitress was very kind and helpful, and her recommendations did not disappoint! Will definitely come here again.
Great service and spectacular food. Would highly recommend
We go to CK a lot. The food is reliably good and they have a solid wine/beer lineup that isn't crazy priced. Example: they have docent beer. Flowers Pinot by the bottle for about $70. The starter kale and the crispy chicken caesar are two of the best salads around! Their fries are great with the chive aioli. We mostly go with the taco apps and the sandwiches (the french dip is my fave) but this week I had a pork chop and was impressed. A big chop cooked perfectly and well-seasoned. We will be going back!
Exceptional.....last minute decision turned into a wonderful dinner.
Always good. A top choice. Food, service and ambience are all first class.
The meal was delicious and our server was excellent!
Overly COVID paranoia. The sealed plastic bag for utensils... McDonald’s style salt/petter packets... the closure (again) of the indoor booths, but ok to sit inside a four sided enclosed plastic tent... huh??? Many (most) restaurants in Dana
One of the best covid outdoor eating pivots I have seen anywhere!
I rarely order pork chops in restaurants but CK's double-cut bone-in pork with cider fig glaze is epic, take a big appetite or take some home for this one (as I do every time)
Always excellent service and delicious food. Husband loved the pork chops. Blood orange cocktail is yummy.
Beautiful atmosphere outside warm with heaters perfect waiter was so attentive quick service we were very. Relaxed not feeling rushed wonderful night with friends
What a great job they did with trying to create a pleasant experience while eating in the parking lot!!
The food is fabulous as always and great service.
Trying to support our favorite restaurants so they're still around when this COVID crap is over.
Thank you for taking the time to read our reservation notes. Wonderful service, delicious food. Thank you!
Great food, great service, excellent Covid protocol compliance, very clean. We enjoyed the entire experience and will be back again very soon!
Worst experience there, ever. Poor service , long wait with a reservation, terrible ambiance.... food was decent
Service, ambience and food were exceptional!! We love coming here!
It was a little cold in the tent. Could tell when the heat went off. Food and service great. Looking forward to dining back inside!
We LOVE CK, we have been coming here since they opened. Not only is everything in the menu amazing, but the Chef and entire staff is wonderful. Always accommodating, go above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of from the moment you arrive! They have a expanded the tenting outside, one is covered and the other has lots of heating lamps. The outside front restaurant are with fire pit is also open. We are happy to spend our date nights here and support a local favorite ❤️
Warmly greeted upon arriving. All workers wearing masks. Service from all workers was excellent. Food was prepared snd served in a timely manner. Clean food, delicious. Very pleasant experience.
My wife and I very much enjoy dining at Coastal Kitchen. We are Dana Point residents and visit the restaurant regularly. Always excellent!
The food and service are excellent. The inside of the tent can get quite loud but that's a good solution to be open right now
excellent food .....exceptional staff,,,Shelby was awesome....will certainly enjoy your establishment many more times. !
Going above and beyond during Covid.
This was our first time eating out in a long time -- and were meeting elderly friends. I asked for a table in a quiet area because one of our group has a hearing disability. They could not have been sweeter, They had made an outside area into a little separate dining room for well away from all the other socially distanced tables. It had canvas walls on three sides and it had a wonderful space heater. We were so cozy, felt safe and best of all everyone could here. On top of all that, the food was YUMMY! Everyone loved what they had. This place was a favorite ( albeit noisy) choice for us and we will go back again and again. They couldn't have been nicer.
One of our favorite resturants. Great food, good service,and friendly staff.
Coastal Kitchen is the BEST! Have never had a bad experience here. Love it!
Coastal Kitchen never disappoints.
They have gone above and beyond to comply with covid 19 changes and restrictions. Their food and service is always top-notch. From Starters thru dessert...delicious!
Alyssa was our server and she was wonderful. Food was delicious. We sat on the very back patio - all open air with patio heaters - wicker chairs - all high top tables - was quite lovely under the circumstances with outdoor dining. We will be back!
Always the best ever!! Best pork chop known to man and also butter cake. Alway best old fashioned you’ll ever have
Always a great experience, wonderful service. The ahi tuna so fresh and delicious, pork chop was incredible very flavorful. Kale salad is my favorite.
Another fantastic evening.
One of my favorite restaurants, they never fail to deliver fabulous food. Very disappointed there was no prime rib as my heart was set on it but I’ll have it next time! Don’t miss the Parker House rolls. First time and they were killer good. Went to celebrate national margarita day and they were perfect.
Estuvo buena la comida!
We loved this place before the pandemic and have loved it during the pandemic.
Thank you for continuing to provide a safe, lovely place to have a meal.
We had Thanksgiving dinner there and it was superb.
This was a real treat. Service wonderful for delicious meals all different and no complaints. Ambience as good as it can be during Covid. We will be back keep...doing a good job coastal kitchen kitchen
Did not honor my open table gift card. Was told at the end of dining they had guests waiting to be seated and we would have to hurry, though we had yet to receive our bill. Completely rude service from the owner.
Reserved based on past reviews and was very pleased with the service and the quality of the food. We had the cheese burger and fries and the server gave us several dipping sauces to use. They were all superb. All outdoor dining but safely distanced. Parking a little congested because of using it for seating. Overall, great lunch.
The staff did an excellent job making the guests feel safe with the Covid protocols that were followed.
