Wifes 69th Birthday. Extremely well taken care of. Oyster appetizer perfect, as well as salad. Calamari was over fried. Filet Mignon was Medium Rare, extremely tender, potatoes & asparagus delicious. Cosmo was a bit light on Grey Goose, but tasty. Well priced. Lava Cake for birthday with Mint CC ice cream very nice. Server was superlative.

As usual, a wonderful dinner was had by all. From the decadent truffle fries, through the perfectly soft and silky burrata with a generous serving of prosciutto and bread, to the well-cleaned and moist shrimp in both the simply-prepared and with grits along with the grouper taco, all was succulently prepared and seasoned. ONLY small complaint, the wine list isn't as varied as it was and the affordable gems are missing. But the Williamsburg Merlot was a big surprise and deeply delicious.

Went there for raw oysters and they were very very good, just wish the "shucker" had more experience as we had multiple pieces of shell in every oyster. Octopus cerviche has changed a bit, thicker with more salt than in the past, but still a creative and nice appetizer. My sister's hangar steak was perfect and she is still talking about how good it was. If you get a front room table like we did, you have a fun tableau of folks in Carytown - always a good show!

Fun extended family dinner at East coast Provisions!
Our group started with Salt Air margaritas and a variety of wines, Truffle Parmesan Fries, Featured oysters on the half shell, and the West Coast Sushi rolls. For our entrees we enjoyed the fried Grouper tacos, the seared Salmon, the Roasted Rockfish and the Seared Scallops. Everything was delicious and beautifully plated. The service was outstanding. Perfect night out with my extended family.

Ryan was our waiter and he was amazing! I asked for an item to be left off our meal and the kitchen put it on by accident and he noticed it before I did because he was double checking our food. He immediately ordered us a new dish. We were so impressed!

I highly recommend the upstairs back room tables by the windows to diners who prefer quiet and light. Because it gets dark early this time of year, I made a reservation at 4:00. We really like the ambiance of that room in the treetops. We got excellent service, and always find the quality of fresh seafood at this restaurant outstanding for the price. The chef knows how to prepare things, and there is a good variety of healthy and flavorsome food on the menu. East Coast Provisions has become a go-to for us.

Our dinner experience was amazing. Our server (forgot his name sorry) was very attentive. Quick drink delivery and gave us enough time to devour our appetizers before bringing dinner. Hands down best mussels we’ve had in awhile. Spice level was perfect. The salmon and blackened mahi was light and refreshing. Just enough food to enjoy my chocolate coffee martini for dessert. Our evening was lovely. You guys rock!

Husband’s steak frites was good but my lobster roll was more like langostino and the bun was soggy on the bottom. Side salad was very good but maybe the culprit in soggy bun? Service was friendly and efficient.

Had a nice date night with a friend. We both enjoyed the calamari and the sushi. The bubbly fizz was so delicious too- though they ran out of St. Germain to make more. Great staff, clean bathrooms, lovely ambiance.

This was a very happy accident! Plans changed last minute so we were fortunate to get a reservation here. Our entire experience was excellent from the service to the food and drinks. Super friendly and attentive waitstaff, an outstanding menu (can’t wait to come back to try more!) and delicious food. I highly recommend, and look forward to introducing more friends and family to this wonderful restaurant.

Great food, service and environment. It made my father’s birthday special ! The house made donuts with a candle made him smile.
The only challenge was the stairs to our upstairs table. If you have someone with mobility issues , I would recommend requesting a downstairs table.

We were looking for a romantic night out and East Coast Provisions was a good choice. The food was excellent, except a bit heavy on the corn. The ambiance was nice and the service was very good. We recommend this seafood-specialty restaurant.

Easy going and intimate, East Coast serves up delicious rockfish, crab bisque, octopus and other seafood. One can get a hunk of beef or a chicken thigh, too, but seafood is the main attraction. Good service and a small bar area round out the experience. Other than the tables being too close together, East Coast deserves a second or third visit.

Everything about our evening at East Coast Provisions was great! We had 6 friends in a cozy booth, good drinks, amazing apps, delicious fish, and finished with outstanding desserts. I'm not sure why this restaurant doesn't get more buzz because it's a winner!

Recommend if you want a quiet table the upstairs back room, early. The staff were so good as to see we got the table we preferred. There are windows in that room which let in light at the earliest dinner time, perfect for my father with low vision. He enjoyed the special swordfish, the special usually being an elaborate fish dish served in a bowl. My cousin and I had the simply prepared salmon, as I have dietary restrictions and she prefers entrees which are traditional and not spicy. The mainly seafood menu is very accommodating to preferences, indicating what is gluten free.
This restaurant obviously has a good source of fresh seafood, which the chef prepares ably, and creatively for those who so desire. Parking is a little challenging if you dislike parking decks, but this time there was an on-street place in front.
