Good service. Food was nice - especially the sushi and calamari. The seafood platter was not as amazing as those you see in Europe but still good. It's as much about being seen there as the food I think.

I was looking for seafood and passed Coast by accident. No problem getting in as a single at the bar without a reservation. The service was friendly and attentive. It is bright, lively and contemporary. The waiter behind the bar knew his food and drink. I had 6 Kusshi oysters, medium size, sweet and delicious, prepared in front of you.... More

Wow, the setting is like out of a hip movie scene! Our particular server dropped the ball in getting to us. After 15 minutes we said something and received a surly reply. He didn't really offer any help with the menu selections either. The food was very good and it was a nice evening.

Other than the valet service which was prompt and courteous there wasn't a thing that went well. We were seated at an oblong table for ten upstairs. . .the shape and placement of the table made conversation impossible so the host requested a change. We were moved to a rectangular table for ten in an area of the restaurant where... More

Recommended by our concierge and a fellow pool sitter (a resident) and it was great! Service was amazing. Cameron, our server was particularly attentive - antipated how/when to serve without being told. We're frequent travelers/diners and even so were impressed! Very good menu and flavors - vibrant atmosphere. A definite MUST in Vancouver!

My wife and I had dinner here while in Vancouver since it was located close to our hotel. We didn't know anything about the restaurant, however, after having our dinner, we would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for good food, service and an affordable price. We ordered various types of sushi for dinner. The sushi chef brought our meals... More

Four of us dined there. Busy place with people rushing around all over the place. Our table was on the way to the kitchen so we may have seen more traffic than normal. Full bar. Lots of wine choices. This is a seafood restaurant, so very limited selection of "Land" items. Our request for some menu customization was disappointingly declined.... More

Came for lunch here with my mom, good value, good service and well worth coming to. I would recommend this place as they often have specials for reasonable pricing. The manager checked in with us as well to ensure everything was good. I would give this a solid 8.5 / 9 ish out of 10. Hope you get a chance... More

I was dying for some great kind crab legs and asked several people and wound up here. Excellent. We are in our sixties and not fond of loud atmospheres and the inside is loud...part of their theme. However, we love eating outside and the sidewalk patio was perfect as was the meal and service.
