Food good / above average - but. not great..... food heavily spiced so tastes ok but spices overwhelm actual food flavor ( octopus, mussels, brandzino)
Noise/acoustics totally unacceptable - do not like shouting over table to be heard- small room of 20 peeps should not be so loud - my dining room seats at least this number and conversation not an issue. Concept of all so ideal and acoustical adjustments need to be made for a close to perfect experience!
Will try again in front room with glass and seating only for 12 - maybe more pleasant and not so rushed to leave. Spending $250 plus for 3 - expect more ambiance and a notch up on food scale!

From the outside it looks like it'll be a little bit of a dive inside but nothing could be further from the truth. It was spotless, well appointed design, and a very inviting ice display of fresh seafood at the front tells you they aren't imitating a seafood restaurant- it's the real deal. I thoroughly enjoyed by fried fish sandwich, the spread was delicious, as was the housemade mustard vinaigrette on my salad. Service was great as well. Lots of people with small toddlers there too, don't be afraid to bring a kid!

In general the food was great, my only criticism is that the octopus appetizer was way too salty, it overpowered the flavor of the seafood.

Had Karl as a waiter, and he was just incredible. Recommended some great appetizers and told us when he thought an option wouldn't be great for us. Had a great VDay date here, highly recommend!

If you want good seafood, East Coast provisions has a great selection.Be sure to try the crab miso soup - delicious! Portion sizes are good and there is a lot of variety in their menu. Right on Cary Street. Definitely need reservations before you go.

Great atmosphere. My only wish is that the clams and crab legs came steamed instead of chilled.

We really enjoyed our dinner! The mussels were outstanding with a fabulous sauce. The Bells Two Hearted IPA was super fresh and the oysters and salmon did not disappoint. We will definitely be back. Super cute restaurant and awesome food!

The food was fantastic. Everything appetizers, drinks, mains and dessert. Sort of pricey but delicious. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 Stars across the board is because it was very loud in there. I think there were a few private events going on and those guests were having lots of fu n!

Food was very good. Overall experience was OK but there are better choices for seafood in RVA. Noise level in small front room very loud and other tables can ruin your conversation. Try to get seated in main or upstairs area.

I selected East Coast Provisions because it is close to my home and I'm so glad I did. Our party of four was very pleased with the creative menu, the wine list and the service. The only thing that was not perfect was the limited selection of desserts on that particular evening. Nevertheless, I will definitely return many times.

Excellent seafood, casual, not stuffy. We had crabcakes, rockfish, and scallops. The fried calamari was amazing, nice Asian-inspired sauce. We splurged with the doughnut dessert, was amazing. Have already recommended to my adult children who visit regularly. I want to try the sushi.

Excellent food. Not a big fan of fish but the blackened Mahi was one of the best fish meals I have ever had. Presentation was beautiful! There were five of us and everyone had a wonderful time. Very relaxing and service was just right.
