While the food was good it was not outstanding especially with a prix fix of &105. Service was decent and the waiters were very friendly.

5 course prix-fixe menu was creative and delicious. Service was impeccable. A few surprise goodies to top it all off. Has a great ocean front location; one complaint, though, is that my spouse and I were seated to view the water, rather than each other, though it was night time with no real view outside. The 5 course meal takes a bit of time, too; don't do it if you're in a hurry.

Celebrated our 40th anniversary here. Everyone was gracious and welcoming. While at first we were disappointed not to have a later time slot, it actually was a blessing as the 5:30 time allowed us to have an unparalleled ocean view for two full hours before the sun set, in a quiet, almost entirely private setting! Had we been at 7:00, this time of year it would have been dark with no view! The food was beyond divine, with scrumptious seasonally fresh local ingredients and lovely presentation. The oil poached halibut with caviar garnish was especially delicious! While some might feel the portion sizes to be a bit small, they were elegantly perfect for having a multiple course tasting menu, leaving us ultimately satisfied and not over indulged! The service staff was attentive to our every need, beyond expectation.

This has always been an excellent restaurant but it’s slipping a bit. Flavors were a bit off, wine pairings didn’t always work, service wasn’t as crisp. This restaurant has been our summer vacation treat for many, many years and it’s always kept up its standards despite a change in chefs, but this year wasn’t the same. It was very good, but for over $500 for two for the tasting menu and wine pairings, it should have been unforgettable. It wasn’t.

Concerning the menu, some mix of foods were surprising!
There was too many people to take advantage of the peace of a Relais & Chateau.

This is our second visit to this fine restaurant. The service staff are very attentive but not overbearing. The food is excellent and the menu is very creative. The foie gras is a must try. The after dessert candy and macarons have exquisite details and are delicious. The views of the ocean are spectacular from every angle of the restaurant. A wonderful experience.

Coast at Ocean House has become an annual event for us. It is just plain terrific. The food is creative and delicious. The service is impeccable but not obsequious. It is a price fixe menu and is not inexpensive but if you want a real classy and interesting meal, try Coast.

One of the best meals I have had in a very long time. Each of the 5 courses were exceptional. Service was fantastic. Since they revamped and renamed the restaurant (use to be Seasons) it has been fantastic. I have already reserved another dinner there in 3 weeks! Expensive but I highly recommend it!

Spectacular setting. Beautiful table and view. Supremely professional, courteous and enjoyable service. Interesting five or six course meal choices which delivered delicious options. Beautifully constructed cocktails and excellent wine decanted nicely. Food favorites included the foie gras, duck, halibut and cheese courses, but all were excellent. There were lots of extra surprises for our special occasion which were much appreciated. The additional bread course was very memorable with individual mini-loaves with special artisanal butter and salt and pepper choices. Our main server, Tryon, could not have been better - he was a true joy and consummate professional. All the staff were top notch. Our party of six all enjoyed our dinner experience thoroughly.

This was the best dining experience we've had in a long time. We frequent fine dining establishments with gourmet tasting menus, but this was really something else. Everything was excellent – the food, the presentation, the atmosphere, but most of all it was the wonderful and attentive staff who made all the difference.

We definitely recommend tasting menu with wine pairings – the first course was really a nice surprise, the fish and the meat courses were excellent, and the foie gras with the special sauce was simply out of this world. We dined there twice during our short stay at the property, and the chef was kind enough to make some changes to the menu to keep things interesting. It was also a very pleasant surprise when the chef came out to meet us at the end of our second visit.

Overall this was a very special experience, and we’ll be back for sure!

The drive into the area is quite beautiful and pulling up to the small driveway of the Hotel itself to be greeted by a pair of very smartly dressed and professional Valets, certainly starts the evening off well. To be told that there was no tipping as “the only payment we want is your presence” was very refreshing.

The hotel is a breath of fresh air to a bygone era of large mansions and treating guests as just that – guests rather than paying customers. As we were a little early, we were greeted and directed to the bar with the promise that they would come and get us at the appropriate time (which they). We explored a few inspired cocktails from Amy's creativity.

The seating for dinner looked directly out over the water, the ambiance was muted, with just a hint of background music and the tables impeccably dressed. Great start to set the correct scene for a culinary masterpiece.

The Food was 5-star – from a Black Pepper Tagliatelle (with a ‘to die for’ smoked pork bouillon), to roast breast of duck that was so tender and full of flavor, to a Risotto that was perfectly al-dente with widely range or complex flavors. Throw in a Vacherin and a exquisitely presented Souffle and you have the perfect desserts to end. Delicate flavors throughout, very fresh ingredients, meals cooked to perfection (and I do mean that), very stylish plating and so many little touches that made the culinary experience so much more than ever hoped for.

From the serving staff, I really do have to highlight two people – Kevin our very knowledgeable and personable Sommelier, and Jillian who was always there with an enormous smile and a real dedication to service. Ask for them by name if you are at Coast; in fact demand to have them as part of your dining experience.

To find a truly gastronomic experience and old world service is rare in this area. You do pay for it but you can't begrudge the price of this kind of quality - definitely worth every penny.

The service was very clumsy. We did the wine-pairing and would receive our drinks for the next course when we were still eating the course in front of us. The food was good however there was much left to be desired. I recommend just going to the bar upfront and having a drink and app. Dinner isn't worth it.

Didn’t get to eat here because they wouldn’t seat us because I was wearing jeans (dressed appropriately nonetheless). Additionally, we were guests in their sister hotel. Further, they indicated they called to confirm and remind us of the dress code but never received a message. Unless I am missing something, I don’t believe it indicates the “no jeans” policy anywhere here. Was very disappointed because we had eaten at both Spicer Mansion and Weekapaug Inn and loved both.

This is fine dining at its best. Chef Jennifer Backman is a phenomenal artist. We have followed her from Weekapaug to Spicer to COAST. The presentation, flavors and freshness are an event all by themselves. Highly recommend if you know your food and want to share a perfect evening with somebody you really care about.

I've been coming for years and have enjoyed it. This time was very disappointing as we took friends for the first time and they were not impressed. We had to find our server constantly to clear our plates from the brunch which were piled up on our table. He would clear some and leave others not returning until we called him over again. We had to find him to order our meals. It seemed he took several breaks or hid out in the kitchen, not sure. It was anything but enjoyable.
