Tasty food...but some misses

We really liked the ambiance of this restaurant, up scale without being too over the top. It sort of reminded us of a Vegas type restaurant, the vibe was hip and young. Our server was a little pretentious, when describing the halibut special, he went on about the history of the heirloom rice and... read more

We were in Vancouver for the weekend and wanted to have a nice dinner out and we were willing to spend the money for good food. We wanted seafood and decided to try Coast. We really wanted to be excited about what we were eating but we just couldn't get there. We started with the brie flatbread which was bland.... More

I recall great experiences at Coast in the past. My most recent visit fell very flat. This used to be a great dining institution in the city for seafood, sadly this is in the past. Every dish I consumed I could have made better myself at home. Service was on par, albeit slightly aloof.

I'm not giving this restaurant a review of terrible because I truly do believe it was just an off night for them. I thought the atmosphere was fun and energetic and service was pretty much on point but the food was awful. We came with a large group of business clients and it was an important night for all attending.... More

Walking around, looking for eats. While examining the menu (admittedly underdressed) we were coerced in and seated in the top back of the restaurant (I'm guessing because I had on jeans and a fishing t-shirt, but honestly, I can't fault that...the people downstairs near the bar were beautiful and dolled up, I woudn't have put us there either!) Looked over... More

Coast represents what is the best and the worst of restaurant so called ''trends" nowadays. The food is good. Perfectly cooked if you ask first. Very well presented. Inventive. Classic in its base, contemporary in its presentation. I never had a bad meal there. In fact it was always good. Very good even.(warning: the rest is highly subjective and perhaps... More

Sit at the bar and let Robbie tell you what to eat... Don't even look at the menu ...even though everything is great .....just let the service envelop you as this team at the bar is a synergistic family united in delivering the best culinary experience in town. I just had sashimi and a caesar salad with scallops but it... More

We had reservations at another restaurant, but my husband kept hearing people talk about Coast Restaurant, so he wanted to stop by and see if we could get in at the last minute.
