Great service and food

My wife and I had dinner here, and had a great meal. We started with shrimp cocktail and a salad for starters (shared each), the special stir fried lobster for main dishes ( with amazing deep fried spinach and stir fried vegetables), and key lime pie for dessert. We each had a mixed drink. The tab... read more

This was our second time at DC Coast and it was as delicious as the first time! My husband had the Caesar salad with extra anchovies and the Scallops which were wonderful! I had the Lamb Shank with the DC Coast salad which was an excellent choice! We were disappointed that our previous waitress, Joan, wasn't there, but Jim made... More

This place was a choice for a business dinner. A zagat rated restaurant made my expectations high, but they were easily met by the charming and helpful wait staff, amazing chef prepared foods and lovely home made chocolates they offered to our group as a compliment for our dinner! I enjoyed the chilled seafood as an appetizer - oysters, lobster,... More

We arrived here without a booking on a Saturday night, so they couldn't fit us in but offered us the bar instead. This turned out to be a great result, as you still get to choose from the main menu but also the bar menu. Food was lovely and the bar staff who served us took excellent care of us... More

Recently met a friend from out of town at this K Street venue. It was very nice. We did not eat dinner but tried two appetizers and both were delicious. They do not carry a "house" red wine but we made a selection from the nice wine list they offred. Service was a bit slow - but we were not... More

I have eaten at the is place twice. 1st time was better than the last, so take that as batting 50%. This place is opulent. The menu is large so you can get anything you want. They serve some rare fish so I you should be able to find things you wouldn't normally find i.e. Caviar, Cobia. My recommendation -... More

My husband has been wanting to go to DC Coast since it opened so he thought he would surprise me for Valentine's Day. What a great surprise. Naturally we had to order off of the Valentine menu which was double the price for this special day which is just our fault for picky a day like this. Nonetheless, the food... More

The seafood was fresh and tasty. Try the Oysters, then the Scallops. A great bar and extensive wine list. Service was excellent.
