We had a great family dinner here. Bustling atmosphere, fantastic food and great service. We went at 6pm and the place was packed!! We especially enjoyed the shellfish and sushi - all were excellent!!

This is a fine restaurant-fine food, great service, good atmosphere. This place, like the Joe Fortis and Carderos is very popular -particularly with the young professionals. This was our first visit and definitely not the last-will be back next summer!

While usually the Coast is over priced in my eye's, they have a great happy hour deal for oysters, beer, Prossecco (well its the cheapest Henkel in fact) and appetizers. So happy hour is affordable also everybody with an average income.

Host type guy touched me 3 times on the arm in annoying friendly way. Oysters were good. Salmon was also good. I guess try the tables... More

We booked a table at Coast restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and had to wait for 10 minutes while the staff was hectically looking for a cleaning an apparently random table for us. It seems that reservations do not always work as expected at this restaurant. The place was overcrowded, and we sat outside which was OK, but it... More

Had been here on a few occasions. This time we were seated top floor, back. When the hostess, Stacey, found out that we had sat at the exact same table on our 2 previous visits (we are from Toronto) she relocated us to a table overlooking the downstairs. It was fantastic and such a nice gesture on her part. We... More

We were able to get a table fairly easily at Coast on what was a very busy Saturday night. However, the first thing I noticed was the level of noise in the place - a little to loud to enjoy pleasant conversation over dinner but I am sure if you went with a group of friends it would be a... More
