Perfect relaxed atmosphere

This is a very good and nice restaurant with a very nice relaxed atmosphere. If you have the possibility try to get a table outside, it's fantastic. The food is ok plus but you go here for the atmosphere. Nice service that's all.

We really enjoyed our evening at Coast. The restaurant was very nice inside as well as outside on the patio. The service was great. We had the Shellfish Platter and it was delicious and fresh. The waitress suggested a nice glass of Rose which made it even better !

The food is okay, but not extra special. The atmosphere and staff were excellent however. The location of course by Santa Monica beach is terrific.

The food is a bit overrated. The atmosphere however is not. A nice dining experience eating outdoors right off the ocean. The caesar salad was nothing special and neither was my wife's cobb salad. The service was good and the staff is friendly but it is a little pricey.

All the meals we had here during our stay were of good quality. Great staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Happy hour is between 4-7pm and the bar area is great. Highly recommended.

Fish is hard to get right but the cod was perfectly cooked and in American style they did not try to recreate a perfect British batter but the crumb was just right. Followed by a delicious butterscotch pudding - it doesn't need the whip. Fantastic, attentive service which is always worth paying for. Finally the view of the pier and... More

We ate a late dinner here after walking on the beach. I had a veggie burger and really enjoyed it. My husband had something seafood but I can't remember exactly what it was. He thought it was just ok. The service was good. Overall there was nothing wrong but we wouldn't go back here.

We had a very nice lunch here on a layover between Maui and UK. We sat outside on a lovely terrace in the sunshine overlooking Venice Beach with friends. We had the tuna Nicole's and the Cobb salads and they were absolutely delicious. The staff were very good,service great and ambience superb!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
