We choose the Price Fox for 3 courses. I had french onion soup my husband had mushroom soup as starters. thad their crab cake over spinach and potatoes which was good, my husband had the special which was Rockfish with shrimp over a yummy sauce that had sweet corn in it. It was fabulous! I choose chocolate molten cake for dessert. My husband choose Apple strudel with Carmel sauce. The both came with vanilla ice cream. Portions were small. We left feeling satisfied but not full. I would definitely go back!

We were visiting our grandson at the University of Richmond and treated him to dinner at The Stables. Everything was delicious. The lamb appetizer the best lamb chops we have ever had. We ended our fabulous dinner with the flight of chocolates. Each one better than the last. Loved the atmosphere and had a wonderful server. W This will definitely be our number one choice when visiting Richmond in the future.

This remains our favorite restaurant in the area. We had a fun celebration of an engagement and Coast Grill was the perfect place for it. The selections on the menu are wide ranging and excellent. Everyone said, we cant order it all so we will just have to come back. The Branzino is my favorite and always wonderful. The Acorn squash fantastic, wilted salad with bacon dressing a great start to the meal and the deserts spectacular. Too much to say in one review except, try it for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Possibly have a server or attendant more present in the Garden Room to address diners' needs. Servers were generally only present when they were serving food or wine.

Went for the she crab soup. It was so delicious we went back the next day. We were visiting the area. First day, we went for lunch. The sweet corn soup was also fabulous. Enjoyed seafood quesadillas, scallops, and had to try a fire shrimp taco, which was very good. Next night, for dinner, we upgraded from cups to bowls of soup. Both were awesome again. Fire shrimp appetizer was again delicious. The soup is filling, so We split a wagyu steak and crab cake meal. All the food was perfectly cooked. Chefs were cordial and gave us a tip or two on trying to make our own she crab soup when we return home. Server Collette was great. Made recommendations, which were very much appreciated. We will definitely visit every time we are in Newport News.
