I'm kicking myself that I haven't been her sooner! We had a fabulous lunch at Coastal Kitchen. The ambiance, food, and service exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed the trout dip, kale salad, and tortilla soup. my husband had a brie and fig salad that was delicious. The restaurant is coastal themed and was just so lovely. I will definitely be returning soon.
Me and my date both had sandwiches, chicken BLT and tri tip. Chicken BLT definitely stole the show and tri tip had some great sauce. Get some of the housemade hot sauce on the side as well. They make their fries a little crunchy so that was very nice as well, but the really tasty side order was the brussels sprouts. There was a bunch of seafood on the menu as well but didn’t get to try any, see you soon
We enjoyed the halibut, the tacos, the pork chop and the crab cakes. Everything was good and we enjoyed our dinner. This is the first time we've sat in the back (across from the kitchen). It is very noisy back there and because there were six of us, we couldn't hear some of the conversation. I still recommend Coastal Kitchen for the food, the decor and the location. It would probably have been better with a smaller party (four or less).
A local favorite restaurant that never disappoints. An excellent place to drink me and have a cocktail.
Always have had a delicious meal here. But we didn't get a complimentary birthday dessert.
All was great! I miss the clam dish!!
Always good food and great atmosphere.
Second visit to this restaurant. Ordered the delicious crab cake salad. Excellent service. Will go back!
The service was excellent, the martinis perfect, and the dinner delicious. We'll definitely be back.
I had my friend from San Antonio meet me for lunch-I thought she would enjoy it. It was a big hit!! We both had the veggie sandwich and fries which were great. She is planning on going to have lunch or dinner there again before she heads back to Texas
Great overall experience. Primary server was friendly and knowledgeable, explaining a few menu items that we were not familiar with. Food arrived in a timely manner and was very tasty.
It was lovely as always. The food was beautiful and delicious!!!! The service was perfect.
We had patio seats which was great for sound level.
My ONLY problem with this wonderful place is the noise
Inside. It is a very old building. I doubt they can remedy
But others should take notes from Coastal Kitchen.
Great ambiance and delicious fair. This time I tried the Chef's Tacos and they were wonderful! Our waiter was very helpful and charming. I give this restaurant two thumbs up!
We liked the patio fire pits. Food was great!
The ribeye for one of our group was exceptionally fatty...had to send it back but replacement not much better..
All the other food was great..
What a great place. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The manager came over and when he found out we were from out of town, he comped our dessert and asked us to come again, which we definitely will!
My overall review would be above average. The crab cakes were fantastic. The s’mores pie dessert was outta this world!
Great service & love the ambiance. Ordered a chicken Cesar salad but wish I ordered my usual favorite instead - Scottish salmon. Loved the my lime pie for dessert!
Always great service and love sitting on the fireside patio.
Great design, very good service. Definitely would recommend to others.
Great food in a beautiful space!
We had an excellent time. Service was outstanding and food was phenomenal. I had the fried Brie salad with chicken and highly recommend it. Another friend had the chicken BLT and loved it. The ambiance is amazing. Can’t wait to go again.
Service was excellent per usual. Food is always consistent and good. Will be back soon.
Their food is delicious. We seek CK out because the quality of the food is very good. Everything else is secondary. However, the environment and service is also very good.
Wide variety of food options, all of the food was good, service good
Great food, staff, menu and such. Only drawback is direct location on PCH, but it is shielded by plexiglass. Thanks
We love their smoked trout fish spread and get it everytime we go. It never disappoints! The burger is delicious too and always cooked perfectly. Service was great as usual!
One of our favorite's and we particularly love the outdoor patio. Had the Shrimp Cocktail again, they are hugh and sooooo good. Tried their Cheeseburger for the first time....big mistake that I have never tried it before!! Absolutely the best cheeseburger that I have ever had. Going back tomorrow to do it all over again!

Great place and very friendly staff! I have a Lactose intolearance and staff helped out!
Lovely service from the hostess to our food server. Food was tasty and the setting relaxing.
Wonderful as always at Coastal Kitchen. Food, drinks, service and overall vibe was great! Coastal Kitchen is one of our favorite places in Dana Point!
Used to be one of our favo places, this time the food seemed old and bread was moldy. The Manager and waiter were very nice, so we will of course try again. Just seems the quality is up and down, and we would like to see a steady up !!
Great lunch. Best hamburger ever. We are keto eaters and CK accommodates by wrapping our meal in lettuce and substituting salad for fries. Delicious.
Great atmosphere, food to match. Sitting on PCH and you don’t hear any of that traffic noise. Well done.
Coastal Kitchen looks like it comes out of a magazine - or at least a catalog from a high-end beach furniture company. It's just as pretty to look at as it is to eat there.
The crab cakes have been praised, and should be. 2 sizable cakes (lots of crab, little filling) with tasty coleslaw. $36 for this - maybe a bit high. Ok, a bit high, but standard for what's on the menu.
Great cocktails at the bar and the desserts sounded and looked heavenly (maybe we order that Key Lime Tart next time!)
Terrific service..........food was outstanding!! Will for sure come back again
Beautiful area! The restaurant is emaciated and very welcoming. The service and food are equally exception. Great non- meat options
Love the location and ambiance and the food is delicious!
Drink service was slow because they ran out of martini glasses. Water was slow. The sauces for the steaks was delivered after the steaks were half eaten and the server didn’t know the description of the 3 sauces. Servers were friendly but not attentive. The atmosphere is nice but the place is LOUD. The food was served hot and was delicious.
