Love, love, love the restaurant and location. It's a casual setting and the only downside is you can hang out forever!!! We went for brunch and the food was superb, as was the service. Would definitely return!

We were walking along venice beach and this venue stood out as somewhere to eat.Part of Shutters on the Beach, a picture perfect hotel, we were pleased to see the menu was varied and not prohibitively expensive. Decor inside was lovely and service exemplary. We were all able to find something to tempt ( not always the case with our... More

Very good restaurant in bottom floor of Shutters Hotel, right on the beach. Excellent California styled cuisine with many healthy options....or a great burger if preferred. Good service. Great bar area to sit at if dining alone.

Loved the coffee. I am a creature of habit. Love fruit, yogurt and granola - this was very good. Also enjoyed the lemon ricotta pancakes and the cinnamon buns - yum! We booked a table each morning so we had no wait. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. No complaints here.

Nice find although a little bit too much like a hotel eatery its still very pleasant with good food and excellent service. Nicely decorated with eye level views over to the beach, so great at sunset.

We live in the neighborhood and came here for the first time for dinner. The view is truly fantastic, and I think that may be the best feature of the restaurant. There's beach front dining in Venice but it's not the classy environment of Shutters. Our appetizers were excellent. Calamari was breaded lightly and fried just right. Peaches on cured... More

We had a good experience at Coast. After spending a few hours at the pier we wanted a healthy lunch facing the ocean. Coast delivered good service, good food at a great location. 2 kids main dishes, 2 adults, 3 drinks for $100. Remember Susan Sarandon could be seating next to you here. You judge!
