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.

First visit, had early reservations so not many patrons at that time. Waiter was excellent, attentive and knowledgeable concerning the menu. Ordered calamari for appetizer, crisp with delicious sauce, good portion size. Blackened mahi was a little salty so removed the topping and it was cooked to perfection. Would have preferred a rice pilaf to the chilled corn/bean relish, but still enjoyed the meal. A friend ordered the scallops and was impressed at their size. An enjoyable experience.

If you aren’t seated in a booth the seating is very close. It’s extremely loud. My friends ordered their fish seared and it was very much over done. Also, I’ve never been served such a tiny piece of salmon. Not sure I’d recommend this for dinner. I’ve eaten breakfast here and it was ok.

Food was pretty good. Wine pours a little skimpy. Entrees came out before appetizers were finished. Large noisy group with screaming kids kinda ruined the ambience.

The food was excellent! We enjoyed the steak and eggs - steak was cooked perfectly! The fish sandwich, and the Oyster sampler were also excellent, as was the Butterscotch pudding, made with Macallan single malt scotch. We were disappointed in the homemade donuts because they were clearly burnt - but the manager and the chef really impressed us when they not only figured out the cause of the donuts burning, but made them again and this time they were fantastic! And to top that, the manager was so very hospitable and put that order on the house. We would definitely eat here again, when we’re visiting this area the next time.

For the price, portions were on the small side for the dinner entrees our group ordered.
Food was prepared very well. Service was very good. The upstairs back room was very noisy and I had requested a table in another area but that did not happen per my reservation request.
Will be back, just constructive criticism.

We had an awesome meal for the second time at East Coast Provisions. The sushi was fresh, tasty and interesting, including our Dragon Roll, Rainbow Roll, and one more whose name I cannot remember. There were not a ton of vegetarian options for one guest, but she was still completely satisfied with her veggie bowl. Service was attentive and friendly, with a lively atmosphere but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. We loved it and will come back again!
