After reading some negative reviews on yelp we were pleasantly surprised with the food and service at this restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly, we ate outside.

Maybe bring a flashlight and wear neon? Don't go there when hungry? The food itself is fine. the wait will kill you.

Nice seafood place located inside the Shutters Hotel. Service was excellent. Prices not bad for a 5 star hotel. There is a wide variety of seafood plus hamburgers, steak and pasta. Also had breakfast here which was excellent. Portions are large. location is right on the beach.

Right on the beach next to the bike-path. You can see the beach and beautiful sunsets from the bar! Best Grilled Calarmari dish I've ever had. Good drinks too!

Lovely restaurant right near the beach. I had the Dungeness crab salad, lovely fresh lettuce and sweet flavoursome tomatoes but the crab was too salty for my taste. Hubby had a lobster roll with a beautiful salad that was delicious. Staff was slightly remote, but we are used to that in Australia, so no real problem.

I would recommend Coast for brunch for a leisurely day or for a special casual event. There are two hotel restaurants at Shutters, the lower level one is Coast. The service was excellent. The nicoise salad was excellent, well proportioned and well seasoned. I also enjoyed a taste of the corn beef hash which was also flavorful. The peach trifle... More

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
