The crab cakes were as good as any we've had anywhere. Ditto oysters on the half shell.

First we got there an hour early for our reservation. I asked if we could be seated early they said that’s fine just wait at the bar if you’d like. We weren’t seated until our reservation time which was annoying to begin with because if we had known it would take that long we would have just gone somewhere else seeing as we were heading out of town right after our dinner. On top of that the bar is located by the open door so we had a cold breeze the whole time. I keep my house at 69 degrees and it was much colder than this I was not comfortable. When we finally got seated an hour later I was hoping for the table to be warmer but it was not it was located in the same floor not far away. I asked the waiter if they always keep it this cold in here he looked at the thermostat which is located on the opposite side of the room where it was much warmer and it said 68. He said they had to turn it down because it was too warm upstairs. He tried to find a table but there just wasn’t tables available. When our food got there the manager came and said they were looking for more tables seeming annoyed and unapologetic. I already had my food at that point I said don’t worry about it we will just leave after this. Overall the food was decent the waiter was fine but the manager was very cold and the restaurant was the coldest most uncomfortable environment I have ever been in. There was zero discount on our bill. I am so disappointed that I am writing a review and I have never done that before. I recommend if you ever eat here you request to be seated upstairs. They seemingly only care about the temperature and customers up there.

We had some family in from out of town, there were 6 of us total. The staff / service was great, managing 6 people on food delivery times and temperature is not always easy. Overall wonderful value, and everyone loved their food.

Excellent service from the moment we walked in the door. A warm greeting. Great cocktails at the bar. A beautiful table and a waiter who tended to our every need. The menu is diverse and something for everyone. You can splurge or eat on a budget and not feel like you are missing out on anything. It was a perfect choice for girls night out!

The tuna poke and fried oysters were very good. The rockfish didn't have any mushrooms with it even though the menu said that entrée would have some. The rockfish only came with white beans, no root vegetables as the menu stated. If I had known that, I would have had the rockfish come with something else

Oyster shells from app course left on table entire meal, despite waiter coming by several times. Fries arrived stone cold, also one diners entire entree stone cold. Apologies, and fries replaced. Cold entree replaced at no charge AFTER entire party finished meal. More apologies and offer of free desserts, which no one wanted....oyster shells still on table. Was Sunday night so chef probably not in house. Still....

The best part is the pretty sunny dining room where we were seated. It was bright and airy!

The food was just ok. The bread/biscuit basket was tasty (biscuits fluffy and mini muffins yummy) but the donuts were quite dense and heavy. The hash was too sour for me. The French toast was yummy. The potatoes in the bennies were unevenly cooked (some undercooked) although the eggs were perfectly cooked and tasty. The peppermint tea was tasty.

We love this restaurant and have never been anything but pleased. However, Tuesday night I ordered the kale salad topped with the tuna poke. I asked the waitress if I could get it chopped and she said it was. I don’t think it was chopped and when it was first served I thought they had forgotten to put the tuna on it. I think there were 4 tiny cubes of tuna. Other than that it was great!

We had fried cod, rockfish and hangar steak. Portions were modest. Rockfish and steak were good. Fried cod was the thinnest filets I’ve ever seen! A tiny strip of fish between 2 sides of fried breading. The breading wasn’t thick - the fish was just VERY thin. Almost no taste from the fish. Dessert: lava cake, gelato and banana cake. Lava cake was dry and no ‘lava’. Banana cake portion was huge, cold and quite dry. Desperately needed topping or something to add moisture - even heating would have improved it. Overall the atmosphere is very nice but the food doesn’t measure up to the price

This was our first visit to East Coast Provisions . Our table had plenty of room for the 7 of us and we were able to have a normal conversation without yelling :) Our waiter was very attentive without being pushy ...our food was stellar!! The lobster was cooked perfectly, as was my filet. Others had mussels and rockfish and they got good reviews as well. Thank you for a great birthday dinner!

ECP has an aura to die for! It’s like firecrackers on your tastebuds that bungee jumped into an ocean of flavor and sunk to the bottom of deliciousville.
10/10 service and drink menu.
15/10 would definitely go again.

Nice architectural style in the renovation of building. We had a great bottle of wine (sancerre) and many small starters to share. The corn/crab chowder was delicious. The waiter was helpful, but unobtrusive. I would definitely go back.

All of their raw items were phenomenal. Their tuna tacos are a must order. The sushi was delicious. However, those in our party who ordered the cooked fish (rockfish and mahi) found it very adequate with mediocre sides. The Rockfish had mushrooms listed as one of the sides and it literally came with 3 tiny cut up pieces of mushroom.
