New Year’s Eve at One Coastal. Awesome dinner.
Great as always good is the best around fresh and alway something new
One Coastal is still my favorite restaurant! Everything about the place takes the cake- the ambiance, the cocktails and the menu is perfect! Thank you for a wonderful evening!
Everything was absolutely delicious! We tried 2 appetizers (Brussel sprouts and beets) and both were amazing. Then each of us had a different main (flounder, pork chops, rockfish and flank steak)…again all excellent. I don’t even really like pork chops but tried my husband’s and it was so good!! Cocktails were also wonderful. We will be back.
We started with a cauliflower soup and the brussel sprouts. Both were delicious and flavorful. Our server Amber was helpful in guiding us to make decisions. I ordered the duck, cooked perfectly and my husband had the porkchop, he enjoyed every bite. I stopped eating halfway through my meal to save room for dessert, so glad I did. At Amber's recommendation I ordered the red velvet cake that was infused with beet-juice. It was incredible I ate every bite. Overall an incredible experience, the servers all worked together to provide friendly service. We look forward to going back.
We really enjoyed the food and the service. Will definitely go back!
Quaint, easily accessible location with excellently presented food and attentive service. Very limited menu but our food was well prepared. The drinks were creative but not pretentious.
Love going to One Coastal. Always a wonderful meal
Food was very creative, well presented, and delicious. Cocktails were amazing too
Hubby’s bday. Everything was perfect & the owner wrote him a personalized card & gave us a champagne toast. Food was outstanding. 1 of the best restaurants we’ve ever had dinner.
We had a great time and the food was good but we found the place a little smokey and my husband was disappointed in the lack of beer options.
Best restaurant in Fenwick Island but big city prices. My $14 cauliflower soup was so delicious my cauliflower-hating companion finished off my ample bowl and became a convert, at least to the soup. I had duck, which was perfectly prepared, medium rare, well trimmed and delicious, but just four small slices. I expected an entire duck breast for $41. It was tender, which is not always the case with duck. My companion had flank steak, which was properly rare and had a great flavor, but it was tough, hard to chew. He enjoyed the caramelized onions that came, not on the steak but on the grilled broccoli that accompanied it. He doesn't eat broccoli so I can't rate it but it was black and unappetizing looking. Our companions had the mixed green salad, which they really liked and the fried flounder. It wasn't over-breaded or over-cooked so they were happy with it. The four of us shared the three desserts. The gingerbread brownie topped with pears had a strong, distinct gingerbread flavor but I don't know why it was called a brownie. That would have implied a blend of chocolate and ginger but there wasn't any discernible chocolate beneath the dominating gingerbread flavor. The red velvet cake was so-so, which is typical of red velvet, which never has enough chocolate. The "frosting" consisted of dots of beet flavored icing, pretty but incongruous. I love beets but not flavoring my dessert. The spiced donuts, a special that night, were light and moist, topped with a persimmon glaze. Persimmons don't have a very distinctive flavor, but they are sweet and juicy and in season, and made a nice counterpoint to the spicier donuts. Two good-size donuts were easy to share four ways.
One Coastal was fantastic as it always it is. The service is amazing and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Drinks and food are creative and delicious. Make your reservation well in advance!!!
One Coastal has always been outstanding in all areas but since the new chef had come, it takes the food to a whole different level. The cauliflower soup alone is worth the trip. Everything is unique and delicious. The service is the same warm feeling that has always been part of how One Coastal ticks. We had Brandy who was so cheerful and knowledgeable and catered to our every need. Plan ahead….reservations are not easy to come by but it is one of the best restaurants at the beach and not to be missed.
This experience was beyond expectations. If we lived closer this would be a staple when going out!! Definitely want to come back and sit at the bar area looked like a lot of fun!! And make sure to save room for the Dessert!!
The cocktails, the food, the service, it was all delicious! The restaurant was a little smoky from the kitchen, but it didn't bother me much. What a wonderful meal out!
One Coastal is one of our all-time favorite restaurants here at the South Delaware Beaches. Executive Chef Matthew Kern keeps the menu fresh and innovative with several selections of meat, fish, and vegetarian entrees. Sit at the bar to meet some new friends and watch the mixologists do their magic! We LOVE One Coastal!!!
Great place with exceptional food, however current menu was a bit disappointing, without any exciting seasonal options. Cocktails are always amazing! So is the service. Still very smoky inside due to open style kitchen.
Fabulous meal! The pork chop was delicious as was the flank steak! The cinnamon olive cake was so moist and the red velvet beet cake was very tasty! Can’t wait to come back!
Entrees were tasty but cold. Dessert martini was served curdled. Asked waitress about two different whiskey cocktails and she had no idea how to describe them. Should have been waitressing at Denny’s not there. She was pleasant but not super attentive and knowledgeable for the tip that was expected.
The food, the service....everything about it is wonderful. This is the third time I have eaten at One Coastal and it will be at least an annual event for me. Casual, friendly atmosphere! Super!
The food is fresh and great care is given to the preparation of each dish. The menu is very limited. This was our 3rd time at One Coastal. The first two times we rated the experience and food 5 stars. This time we would rate 4 star as the selections didn't wow us. Service is excellent and special occasions are celebrated.
Excellent food and service. The flounder was delicious. We sampled each of the 3 desserts and they were all amazing
We took our friends and they loved it as much as we do. The food was excellent as was the service.
Food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Loved everything except given the small menu the restaurant should never run out of an entree. I was disappointed and only found my second choice average.
Spectacular dining experience! The food was delicious and the drinks were outstanding!
Have never been disappointed with the service or quality of the food.
The appetizers were mind blowing. The crab and apple salad was so memorable. The chicken and biscuits were wonderful, and the beet salad was lovely. The entrees were good, but not as good as the appetizers. The corn fried trout was well cooked and tasty, but the sauce was not great and I avoided it. The shrimp and dumplings were also good, but not as good as other entrees we have had. It is hard not to feel rushed. The check was delivered without us asking for it. The service is always good. The cinnamon olive oil cake was good, as was the buttermilk pie, but the real stars of the evening were the appetizers. Next time I will have the pork chop-always memorable.
Everything was perfect. We were greeted quickly and seated right away. I had noted on my reservation the we had a birthday as a special occasion. There was a birthday card waiting on our table. The service was fantastic. The entire staff was friendly and all worked well together. The food was fabulous, fresh well seasoned and cooked perfectly. An excellent restaurant!!!
Highly recommended! This culinary team really knows how to build flavors and deliver dishes that delight.
Did not think the shrimp and dumplings was worth $39. Not much flavor to the dish.
Wonderful restaurant. This is our favorite place to take visitors for dinner!
Food and drinks were great! Service was very good! A little pricey!
Excellent dinner! Recommend the shrimp and dumplings and the great chocolate cake.
We are local, and One Coastal is one of our very favorite restaurants. The imaginative, delicious menu choices and superb service are always a pleasure!
The menu options were unique and everything we had was very well done and tasty! Service was very good. We very much enjoyed our visit!
All great as usual.
This past year it has gotten a little smokey inside - might need to check the exhaust fans.
Once again, One Coastal did not disappoint! Brandi was our server again and she is incredible. The food was top notch, creative and beyond delicious. The cocktails are amazing too. Thoughtful wine list, fun atmosphere and farm to table ingredients. It honestly doesn’t get much better!
