I have been to Coast a number of times and it is a go to place by one of my non coastal colleagues whenever he comes to Vancouver. The fish is fresh and the service is excellent. They source local fish and oysters as well as foreign species, including Atlantic lobster. There is a hot seafood platter for sharing that... More

We've been hanging around Coast for years. It's in a great location amongst (main commonly owned) peers, has a great atmosphere and generally attracts sophisticated and business-type clients looking for lively dining and conversation. Going to Coast for an evening almost guarantees decent food and pretty people for live entertainment. We particularly prefer to sit at the large circular bar... More

Yes indeed folks, don't be shy, if you've been to The Coast lately, you'll have to agree this place spares no expense when it comes to food quality, service and ambiance. With their breadth taking two story restaurant as a draw, management took full advantage in making this place a show stopper by adding super fresh seafood, a fabulous bar... More

from the host, manager and waiter, coast tops! food is amazing, fresh and portion size is great as well. it's well worth paying for such great food. You must try the Burratta Cheese Salad with the Spanish ham, flat bread with salmon and grill sable fish.

Very dimly lit, annoying techno beat music, bathroom floors were very sticky (??!). I ordered the cappelini with lobster and it was a lobster tail cooked and cut in half. It was impossible to get any lobster out so I asked our server if I was doing it wrong. Next came a manager who took it to the kitchen to... More

If we hadn't gotten an outside table, we would have cancelled our reservation and gone elsewhere. It would have been impossibloe to converse indoors, and even outdoors the dunk-dunk music was intrusive. The waiter said that nothing could be done since the owner refused to listen to complaints about the music and its loudness..

We ate outside and it was very comfortable. The tables were a little close together but the fire rocks on each side of the seating area was very nice. The food was good but a little expensive. The wait staff was very nice and gave us some great ideas of places to go during our visit to Vancouver.

I had my heart set on trying the lobster poutine, so I asked my boyfriend if he could take me for my birthday dinner. There was a bit of a wait for a table even though we had reservations, but they definitely made up for it. We got the Lobster poutine to start and it was so delicious! I would... More

This place was excellent all the way up until we got the bill. They bent over backwards for us on our anniversary, and added a complimentary desert which was divine! They gave us the table on the upper level, overlooking the entire lower part of the restaurant. Very cool! The food was great, although the portion sizes were very small.... More
